Psalm 63: 2-12
At that time, King David was surrounded by lots of problems, but we can see here that in God David acquire the conviction to explore his future life. We must learn two reasons:

1) My soul has thirsts of the Lord
Surrounded by problems, instead of being crushed, David took a good disposition of heart; he did not let his heart, his soul, being carried away by the problems. Rather his soul yearned for the Lord and received joy in God, hope, conviction, as it gives water to those who are thirsty (2) or food to the hungry (6) refuge to weary travelers (8). His soul felt the strength in God. What is your fastest way to get away when you are surrounded by many problems of life?

2) He remembers the Lord on his bed (7)
For David and the soldiers, God was always a help. In early morning, David offered his prayer and before he slept, he remembered the Lord. We feel that David looked like a little baby hugged by his mother. The way of sleep was very peaceful. Do you remember the Lord like it on your bed?

Prayer: Lord, the more there are many problems for me, the more my soul longs for you, and the more I can find the strength that comes from you. Help me to always remember you on my bed

One Word: remember the Lord on your bed.

Psalm 61: 2-9
We are both sheep of God and shepherds who care for the weak sheep. Like this, the believers' life has a double aspect. This psalm tells us much about that the believers' life is to take refuge in the bosom of God on the one hand and desire to serve God on the other. Both passive aspect, and positive one. If we are believers it is very important to be properly educated in these two aspects.

1) David who takes refuge in God (2-5)
In this psalm, King David was in anxiety, sadness, distress and fear. At this crossroads of feelings he begs for help, the help of God. The rock means there is a place where he can hide when the enemy passes. The tower means the place from where one can see the enemies, place where the enemy can ever be destroyed. The refuge is where one can have fellowship with God. What is your refuge? What is your rock?

2) David vowed to serve God
David was not sitten down in worry, he testified that he fulfills his wish to serve God. Receive grace and give his heart to something else makes really miserable. After receiving the grace of God have you had the opportunity to make a vow to serve God?

Prayer: Lord, I eagerly want you to become my refuge, give me the ardent wish to serve you after receiving grace

One Word: when my heart is discouraged

Psalm 56: 2-14
This psalm was written when King David was prisonners of philistines in Gad. It is obvious that this Psalm was written on the crossway of feelings.

1. What can mere mortals do to me (5)
David was very active in his youth and a majestic body. It seems intolerable that he fell into enemy's hands as a prisoner. Moreover the enemies wanted kill him. They tormented him by word. It was at this time that David should have a lot of suffering. But he did not lose his confidence, "What can mere mortals do to me."

2. What can mere mortals do to me (12)
David had not lost faith in this suffering, (14) for "thou hast delivered my soul from death". He remembers how God helped him in the past. (8) David finds that God is helping him even now. We can look at verse 9, David still remember how God takes care of him. At that time, David does not need to be discouraged. So David concluded by saying twice 'What can mere mortals do to me.' 'He helps me walk in the light of the living.' (Rom 8: 28-39) The psalmist's situation and the situation of Paul are similar as in Genesis chapter 32: 46 where Jacob's life seems to be an unfortunate succession. But David concluded that in his life, "that can do mortals to me'. As the apostle Paul said, who is against us if God is with us. Who is in your heart?

Prayer: Lord, thank you for that you have protected your people. Anything in this world, no man and no difficulty separate us from the love of Christ. Help us to see this confidence in our hearts and experience a great deliverance of salvation in our souls.

Psalm 55: 2-18
King David, seeing his confidant betray and rebel, inside of the King David was in trouble, he sighed to beg God. In this psam of prayer, we must think how King David was able to acquire peace.

1) If I had wings like a dove (2-9)
David wanted to have wings like a dove to escape, get rid of this complicated situation. But fleeing is a cowardly way. We must increase our strength to overcome the problem in God, facing it boldly.

2) May they go down alive to Sheol (10-16)
Exhausted, driven by his revenge and anger, David wanted these men go down to Sheol. Wish it could appear to be something natural, but revenge does not bring peace. Do not give your feelings to anger.

3) The Lord will save me
Amid this desire to flee and feeling anger, David let rise slowly voice of testimony that allowed him to believe in God. Knowing only faith in the salvation of God gives him peace, he came to entrust everything to God. Do you want peace? Strive to have faith.

Prayer: Lord, give us strength to overcome the problem in You. I know that revenge, anger and fleeing does not give me peace, I get peace in faith in You.

Psalm 51: 3-13
King David committed adultery with the wife of Uriah his royal subject. After this event, he wrote this psalm with a broken heart. Although he loves God, David committed sin and suffer from its consequences.

1) King David wept for his sins
David has no intention to equivocate or to hide his sin, annd at every word he confesses his crimes, his sins, his sins. David confesses that he not only commits the sin against Bathsheba, but against God himself. What makes human life so sad? Money ? Or sin?

2) King David beg the forgiveness of sins
Think about the words he uses when he begs forgiveness of sins: wash, cleanse, purify. These are terms used in the lepers purification ceremony. King David, as lepers that he himself cannot heal its own forces, is asking for mercy so that he be clean. Sin takes wisdom (8).

3) David begs holiness
Now there is nothing that King David could ask, but the Spirit of God. But after he committed a sin does he have the right to ask the Holy Spirit? (John 6:37). What he needs is holiness. What really man needs is not passion, but holiness.

Prayer: Lord, do not reject me because of my sins but grant me the Holy Spirit, then I will not be sad.

Psalm 48:2-15
This psalm begins with praise the Lord who builds the walls of the holy city of Jerusalem and protect his people from enemies using the wall of the holy city, and finally the psalmist contemplate the love of the Lord. Through this text, we can learn two philosophies of the people of Israel:

1) The philosophy concerning our God
What God is described? The Jews believed that God is our God (v 2, 15) God is not abstract, or someone who exists somewhere vaguely. The Jews believed that God is their God who saves with love.

2) The philosophy that says that our God is the living God
The Jews had this philosophy that God is the living God, that is to say, it intervenes in the minute affairs, builts a vast and beautiful city of Jerusalem (9), it breaks the sea (8), he breaks the plot of the enemies and leads Israel into the way of life (15), it also establishes the plan to show Israel what path should be taken and who judge according to benevolence and righteousness (10, 12). For us who live in our generation, these two philosophies are needed.

Psalm 47: 2-10
Carried away by feelings, we must not sing the Lord by being ecstatic. If we observe what we sing, we find that we lack joy. It's more like a whimper. The psalm today teaches us why the people must sing with joy and gladness.

1) When we think of the Lord, the Most High
The reasons why we should joyfully sing the Lord are: - God is the Lord Most High who has the power and honor - God is King over all the earth - God reigns over the nations. We who have welcomed the eternal king, our praise and worship must be extremely warm.

2) Because the Lord has given us the earth as our inheritance
This great God to which all people must praise, has given us the earth as our inheritance (vs 4 and 1 Peter 2: 9). He submitted the peoples and nations to bend them under our feet. If God is with us, everything belongs to us (Rm 8: 32). Despite all these facts are there in your heart some anxiety or week and sad thoughts? If so, get over these things and praise the Lord.

Prayer: Lord, thou art the Lord, the Most High who has power and authority over all the earth, thy name is worthy of praise from all the people, make sure that in my heart I clap hands to praise your name each day.

1. Prince is beautiful
In this text, it is noted that he is the king, but as he is not married, he is a prince. Everything about him is beauty: speech, valiant, splendor, humble, pleasing appearance, charm (3-9) That such prince became my king, reign in my heart, o my soul, why you'd not lift the pen writes a poem?

After living the life, no one will boast that it is by his own strength he had lived. Meanwhile, we recognize that it is God who helped us. In view of this, we give thanks to God who helped us.

1. The grace made once (2-4)
There are those who say that only they pass such tests. Around us we see that all tests pass. Sometimes tribulations succeed to the point that we do neither see before nor behind. But after the release of the test, we can not help to confess that it is through God that we got there.

1) Because of my memory
The poet because of her memory of the past of the believing, has his heart hurt. The sadness that struck him becomes abundant tears until he could not swallow his food. The thirsty soul (3) and doubt in the heart (12) become the sword that pierces the bone. But when you cross such an experience, we see blooming grace. So if man passes such experiences without faith in God, what's going to happen?

As people of God, those who decide to give glory to God must learn two things through this text:

1) Jesus was accompanied by grace
The author doctor Luc says in verse 40 that the child grew, and strenthened himself and the grace of God was upon him. Grace is the most effective weapon to give glory to God. If someone leading a religious life, but if he lacks grace, we can not say with confidence that he is someone who gives glory to God. Examine yourself: Do you grow up to be endorsed by the grace constantly?

2) Jesus was accompanied by wisdom
Certains think grace is sufficient and pay all their zeal and love. We must strive to grow in wisdom. What is missing to most leaders of this country is this attitude to study the word of God.

Luke 2: 1-14
The writer Luke speaks of who Jesus Christ who borrowed the body of Mary and was born in the barn is and also what relationship there is between God and man.

1) Jesus was lying in the barn
The people of Israel was a Roman colony. At the order of Emperor Caesar each had to go to his homeland to be registered. Joseph, being the ancestor of David, had to go to Bethlehem, despite the signs of imminent delivery. Mary his fiancee had no place to give birth, she then laid his son in the stable. Thus the King of kings, Lord of lords was born in a lowly stable. The work of God begins with a manger. Outside of the only Son of God Jesus Christ who borrowed the body of man and born in a stable, we can not understand or think about God.

2) The joyful news received by the shepherds
The shepherds who spent the watches of the night to keep their herds suddenly received the news from an angel appeared to them: today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ. The newborn swaddled in a manger is the Christ. This Christ glorifies God and gives peace to mankind. It was the only person who could give glory to God and give people peace. Without this one and only Son so humbly born in the stable at Bethlehem, nothing can give us peace and glorify God. Apart from him, all the men are only men, worthy of little confidence and little credibility.

Prayer: Lord, now we understand the meaning that the Son of God descended so low, we believe that only this only Son descended into the barn can give us peace and glory to God. Please come into our hearts.

The author Luc doctor, having discerned the divine will, repeatedly emphasizes the fact that although people are very common, if they are obedient, God raises and uses them. The case of Mary is most telling. The text of today tells us how God works along and what Mary obeys to.

1) God works through the word of God
So that the work that is described herein be completed, God was working for centuries. If we look closely at this text, we can see that for this work trinity commonly works: God the Father (v 26-32), the only Son Jesus Christ (31, 35) and the Holy Spirit (35) . These three persons are working together to realize the words, then nothing is impossible.

2) Marie obeys to the word of God
So that God's will be done for centuries, the person God has chosen as the protagonist was a virgin of the campaign, Marie. But if Mary does not obey the word of God, what will happen? God works powerfully through the person who is obedient to his word. What makes possible the work of God between God and man is: (       ) and (          ).

They prayed a lot to have a child but the day of announcement of the baby they could not really believe it. That's why Zacharie underwent the fate of dumb. According to this text, we can see the will of the author which is: from where does a new life come and what is the meaning of this child who comes to earth.

1. Life comes from God (7-25)
The couple Zechariah really wanted to have a baby and when God allowed the child, they could have the child (25). So the baby's life is a gift from God. The parents of the flesh are only receiving this gift from God.

2. A life comes to earth by clothing with a divine will (15-18)
Jean Baptiste will be a subject of great joy for many people. He will be clothed with the Holy Spirit and lead a very pious life (17-18) and above all he will return many of Israel's sons to Jesus Christ. So from the point of view of the author Luc, on Jean-Baptist's head remains a divine will. It is the same for you.

Verse 8 says we must work hard for six days. welcome the Sabbath after working hard. In general, the Sabbath, the master sits and others such maids work hard. But who must rest on the Sabbath holy?(11) In God there is no distinction.

Verse 12 says to honor parents, and then what kind of man we must not harm? (14-17). If we reflect, we find it is not enough to do no harm to others. If we don't serve and help others positively, we come to the result to harm others. We must love God, love others, and use our material possessions properly.

 God is the God of power with which he delivered Israel from the hand of Pharaoh. It is therefore natural that the people of God do not like material things but he loves his God (Luke 16: 18). Material goods are things that God created. What happen if we love material goods, instead of their Creator. We must love God the Creator. The men make idols with material goods.

John 14: 1-14

Jesus rebuked Philip who asked him to show the Father, because Jesus was with him all the time. Jesus said that he who has seen Jesus has seen the Father. Then Before Jesus speaks about prayer, saying "Whatever you ask in my name, I will," he said, "Believe". So if we believe, Jesus promised that everyone will do much more than he did himself. What a great promise that every time we wonder. But that's where the power of faith and prayer. Really prayer by faith is powerful. But what is faith? In a word: dependence. Philippe's problem is not that he did not see the Father, but it did not ensure the presence of God in his life. Jesus said, "if you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, you will do ..." So, faith is and that lacking in Philip is that he does believe in Jesus who remains in the Father. Or otherwise, that Jesus lives in us and we in him. If we abide in him, as the next chapter on the parable of the vine and branch, we are committed to him and we completely depend on him, then we can experience the effectiveness of our prayer, so much to really make great works of God. When Moses raised his hands supported by Joshua and Hur in Exodus 17, the Israelites won the fight, while when he lowered his arms, they lost. Raise hands means total surrender, it means that we are completely dependent on God. If so, God gives us unsurpassed power, so that we win a great victory in the fight of God.

Jean 14:1-14

Jésus a reproché à Philippe qui lui a demandé de montrer le Père, car Jésus était avec lui tout le temps. Jésus dit que celui qui a vu Jésus a vu aussi le Père. Puis, Avant que Jésus parle de la prière, en disant "Tout ce que vous demandez en mon nom, je le ferai," il dit "Croyez". Alors si on croit, Jésus a promis que chacun fera beaucoup plus que ce qu'il fit lui-même. Quelle formidable promesse à laquelle chaque fois nous nous étonnons. Mais c'est là, la puissance de la foi et la prière. Vraiment la prière par la foi est puissante. Or, qu'est-ce que la foi? En un mot: la dépendance. Le problème de Philippe n'est pas ce qu'il ne voyait pas le Père, mais ce qu'il ne s'assurait pas de la présence de Dieu dans sa vie. Jésus dit "si vous croyez que je suis en le Père, et le Père est en moi, vous ferez..." Donc, la foi est et celle qui manque à Philippe est qu'il ne croit pas en Jésus qui demeure en le Père. Ou autrement, ce que Jésus demeure en nous et nous en lui. Si nous demeurons en lui, comme le prochain chapitre sur la parabole de cep et sarment, nous sommes attachés à lui et nous dépendons complètement de lui, alors nous pouvons expérimenter l'efficacité de notre prière, à tel point de faire vraiment de grandes œuvres de Dieu. Quand Moïse leva les mains soutenus par Josué et Hour dans l'Exode 17, le peuple d'Israël a gagné le combat, alors que quand il baissa les bras, il perdait. Lever les mains signifie la reddition totale, cela veut dire qu'on est entièrement dépendant de Dieu. S'il en est ainsi, Dieu nous donne une puissance inégalable, afin que nous remportions une grande victoire dans le combat de Dieu.

1) The Lord gave the permission on the Sabbath (22-26)
The observance of the Sabbath (20: 8-11) is the fourth commandment of the LORD. The people of God who fears the LORD shall rest on the seventh day. According to its original meaning, the Sabbath means:
1) rest from the affairs of the Net!
2) render service to God, and renew contaminated wounded soul
3) read spiritual books and renew the spirit and visit those who need the Lord to renew the spirit to each other

2) The Lord rebuke those who were stupid
Some, in spite of this commandment, sought food on the seventh day, but in vain. God called to Moses and reproached him. Do you have the soul renewing itself by giving up lust ? Read v 31 and 37. What name was given to food coming down from heaven and what is its meaning? (32).

Prayer: Lord, help us to abandon our greed so that we really rest on the Sabbath. Help us to renew our souls mutually

We all received the Lord JC and we are all children of God who clothed the new nature. But we lack the training and spiritual strength. We tend to go back inwardly to sin as the dog returns to his vomit (2P 2: 22 and proverb citation).
We will think about what God did to the Israelites who were acting this way

1) The Israelites murmured against the Lord
The Israelites came out of Egypt and when they found themselves in front of the Red Sea, the Egyptians chased them. The Israelites were deadlocked. From his love and his power, God had saved the Israelites. So at that time, the Israelites raised voices to exalt love of the Lord. But as soon as a few days passed, the memory of the meat eaten in Egypt was awaken, they began to murmur against Moses. But in reality it is against the Lord (8). Does this happened to you murmuring against the Lord? This means that we doubt God's love.

2) And the LORD God of the Israelites gave manna from heaven
God rained manna from heaven for the Israelites. The reason God gave every day the manna is that the Israelites had to believe in the power of the Lord. Those who gathered a lot because of their are greedy and those who have not collected enough are because of their laziness. The first training of christian is to eat every day our daily bread. We must eat the daily bread, even though it is a small thing as 50 cents.

Prayer: Lord, help us to remember the grace and power by which thou hast saved us. Help us not to doubt the love of God. Help us has supported the training that you give us to eat the manna of God day after day.

Ez 48: 1-35

Ez 47 is a chapter that describes the arrival of the Holy Spirit within Israel. Israel lived 70 years of captivity in Babylon. They lost the Holy Spirit. For the return from Babylon, God foretold the gentle but powerful arrival of the Holy Spirit. When they thought of returning home, in their thinking various feelings may be crossed. What to do when we'll arrive in the country? Especially the devastated country would have given them the great discouragement. But God said they must first wait for the coming of God. So God foretold the arrival of the Holy Spirit. When we return to the country of fail (to the experiences of the failed past) we must first look for the benevolent coming of God. Then God sends his Holy Spirit so that we start a new work of God. At first very few fruit similar to the depth of ankle, but the end it will be remarkable, so much as by power of the Holy Spirit, we are risky to drowning. This would be the state, as we sing, where because of the Holy Spirit, His glory fills the universe as the waters cover the sea.

After predicting the coming of the Holy Spirit, the book of Ezekiel ends with the word on the division of the territory among the tribes of Israel. Perhaps it is a primary task of returning people. But before this physical and material work, the people needed the Holy Spirit. Anyway, in this division we find a singular structure that said border of a tribe from the east to the west. This would be the writing direction of the Hebrews from right to left. Then it is divided into two parts du nord first then the south, and between these two parties there is the description of the city of Jerusalem. And this description is very long. The reason is that this land descripted for the Levites priests is not only the geographical center but also the spiritual center of all Israel. This town of 4,500 cubits rectangle on each side which have each 3 doors according to the names of the tribes will be called "the LORD is here." It is the holy city where God dwells. This is where the temple of God remains. For God's people, the right concept of time and space is important. Especially when he leads the life of faith worthy of God, one is required to have one correct. As the territory of Israel is centripète to the capital and the temple, Christians must focus its space around the temple of God. Just like that, the time must spin for a Christian around Sunday, i.e. Sabbath. Ex 16b describes the Sabbath in Israel. It has three objectives: first to break away from worldly affairs, then to worship God and renew the soul soiled and hurt and finally to read spiritual books and visit those who need the Lord to renew the soul with each other. It is a central time which is between two weeks of world affairs, but the most important time for a Christian.

Ez 48: 1-35

Ez 47 est un chapitre qui décrit l'arrivée du Saint-Esprit au sein d'Israël. Israël vécut 70 ans la captivité en Babylone. Ils perdirent le Saint-Esprit. Du retour de Babylone, Dieu prédit l'arrivée douce mais puissante du Saint-Esprit. Quand ils pensèrent à retourner au pays, il se peut que dans leur pensée, diverses sentiments se croisaient. Que faire en arrivant au pays? Surtout le pays dévasté leur aurait donné le grande découragement. Mais Dieu dit qu'il faut d'abord s'attendre à la venue de Dieu. Dieu prédit donc l'arrivé du Saint-Esprit. Quand nous sommes de retour au pays d'échec (aux expériences du passé échoué) nous devons d'abord chercher la venue bienveillante de Dieu. Alors Dieu envoie son Esprit Saint pour que nous entamions une nouvelle oeuvre de Dieu. Au début très peu de fruit semblable à la profondeur de cheville, mais la fin sera remarquable, à tel point que par force du Saint-Esprit, nous sommes risqués de faire une noyade. Ce serait l'état où, comme nous chatons, le Saint-Esprit venant, Sa gloire emplit l'univers comme les eaux couvrent le fond des mers.

Après la prédiction de la venue du Saint-Esprit, le livre d'Ezéchiel se clôture par la parole sur le partage du territoire parmi les tribus d'Israël. Peut-être c'est une tâche principale d'un peuple de retour. Mais avant cette tâche physique et matérielle, le peuple avait besoin du Saint-Esprit. En tout cas, dans ce partage nous trouvons une structure assez singulière qui dit de frontière d'une tribu de l'est vers l'ouest. Ce serait le sens de l'écriture des Hébreux de droit à gauche. Puis, elle est divisé en deux parties du nord d'abord ensuite du sud, et entre ces deux parties, se situe la description de la ville de Jérusalem. Et cette description est très longue. La raison est que cette terre désigné pour les sacrificateurs Lévites est le centre non seulement géographique, mais aussi le centre spirituel de tout Israël. Cette ville rectangle de 4500 coudées de chaque côté qui a chacun 3 portes selon les noms des tribus sera appelé "l'Eternel est ici." C'est la ville sainte où Dieu demeure. C'est là que demeure le temple de Dieu. Pour le peuple de Dieu, le juste concept de temps et espace est important. Surtout quand il mène la vie de foi digne de Dieu, il en faut un qui est correct. De même que le territoire d'Israël est centripète vers la capitale et le temple, le chrétien doit concentrer son espace autour du temple de Dieu. De même le temps d'un chrétien doit être centripète autour du dimanche, autrement dit Sabbat. Ex 16b nous décrit le sabbat d'Israël. Il a triple objectifs: d'abord de se détacher des affaires du monde, ensuite de rendre culte à Dieu et renouveler l'âme salie et blessée et enfin de lire les livres spirituels et rendre visite à ceux qui ont besoin du Seigneur pour se renouveler l'âme les uns aux autres. C'est un temps central qui se situe deux semaines des affaires du monde, mais un temps le plus important pour un chrétien.

Job 14

Exodus 14 gives us an overview of Israelites who murmured against Moses and against God. God gave them the command to eat the manna that is the daily bread. Job 14 describes the reality of man. "Man born of woman, his life is short, and is saturated with agitation." Job concludes this chapter by saying, "it is in the flesh of his that is suffering and it is his soul who is in mourning." So what use is to lead a life on earth, while this life, as Job says, is like water that dries up and a stone that falls apart. Oh, the tree has a hope, because if you cut it, it grows, and if the root gets older, it blooms again. But after his death, the man did not return. I just read a poem of a monk which translates as following:
The day is coming when the one I liked until death crosses me as if he is unknown.
The day comes when a close friend who shared with me the secret go away, so as to not give me any call,
It happens that one I hated unto my desire of his death, may meet with the smiling faces, and this too is nothing, after some time.
Do not blame the one who has changed ....
Do not blame the one who left ....
As spring goes and summer comes.
Even if I am not distant intentionally one that crossed me and leave me must move away naturally.
Although not desperately fighting to retain, who must remain, remains near me, understanding the situation, whatever the situation.
If after paying my time and my heart to the one who does not respect me or loves me and spares nothing for me, it hurts me ... Will you need to pass so the time as beautiful as the flower that never comes?
The flower that is put mud in the rainy weather and the wind, isn't it the flower? The next rain wash it.
The error is human. Before the baby walking 3,000 times, he falls, after which he learns to walk.
I am the man who fell 3000 times and got up, however, still despair me before a minor matter.
The saddest thing is what one comes to think too early death.
The most unfortunate thing is what one comes to realize too late love.
Even if I boast of what I'm superior, little difference is under heaven.
If we see from the top and sky high, all are just the same despicable beings ...
The high-waisted man is not taller than the miserable tree, and whatever he runs well, he is slower than a miserable animal.
Do not try to crush one who is below you to rise above him.
Do not be jealous to who is supérieur than you.
It would be nice to live only by loving myself as I am.
For all who are under heaven are such same beings.

Unhappy man, but every day is dotted by tribulations and turmoil, but what to do? God gave this commandment to the Israelites with manna so that they can overcome the sinful nature of man and already live heaven on earth. The daily bread training is really the best training for man.

Job 14

Exode 14 nous donne une aperçu des Israélites qui murmuraient contre Moïse et contre Dieu. Dieu leur donna le commandement de manger la manne qui est le pain quotidien. Job 14 nous décrit la réalité de l'homme. "L'homme né de la femme, sa vie est courte, et elle est saturé d'agitation." Job conclut ce chapitre en disant, "c'est dans sa chair à lui qu'il souffre et c'est son âme à lui qui est en deuil." Alors à quelle utilité est de mener une vie sur la terre, alors que cette vie, comme Job le dit, est semblable à une eau qui se tarit et une pierre qui se disloque. Oh, l'arbre a une espérance, car si on le coupe, il pousse, et si sa racine vieille, il refleurit. Mais après sa disparition, l'homme ne revient pas. Je viens de lire un poème d'un moine qui se traduit comme suis :
Le jour vient où celui que j’ai aimé jusqu’à la mort me croise comme s’il est inconnu.

Le jour vient où l’ami intime qui a partagé le secret avec moi s’éloigne, à tel point qu’il ne me donne aucun appel,

Il advient que celui que j’ai haï jusqu’à le désirer mourir, peut se rencontrer avec les faces souriantes, et cela aussi n’est rien, au bout de certain temps.

Il ne faut pas s’en vouloir à celui qui a changé….

Il ne faut pas s’en vouloir à celui qui a quitté….

Comme le printemps passe et l’été vient.

Même si je ne me suis pas éloigné intentionnellement, celui qui me frôle et me quitte doit s’éloigner naturellement.

Même si ne me bats pas désespérément pour retenir, celui qui doit rester près de moi, comprend la situation et reste près de moi, quel que soit la situation.

Si après avoir versé mon temps et mon cœur à celui qui ne me respecte ni m’aime et n’épargne rien pour moi, ce qui me blesse,…  aura-t-on besoin de passer le temps aussi beau que la fleur qui ne me vient jamais ?  

Est-ce que la fleur qui se revête de la boue au temps de la pluie et le vent n’est pas la fleur ? La prochaine pluie la lave.

L’erreur est humaine. Avant que le bébé marche, 3000 fois, il tombe, après quoi il apprend à marcher.

Je suis l’homme qui est tombé 3000 fois et me suis levé, cependant, me désespère encore devant une affaire peu importante.

La chose la plus triste est ce qu’on en vient à penser trop tôt à la mort.

La chose la plus malheureuse est ce qu’on en vient à prendre conscience trop tard de l’amour.

Même si je me vante de ce que je suis supérieur, peu de différence se trouve sous le ciel.

Si on voit du ciel haut et haut, tous ne sont que les mêmes êtres méprisables…

L’homme à haute taille n’est pas plus grand que l’arbre misérable, et quoi qu’il court bien, il est plus lent qu’un animal modeste.

N’essaie pas d’écraser celui qui est inférieur à toi pour monter plus haut que lui.

Ne sois pas jaloux à celui qui est supérieur à toi.

Ce serait bien de vivre seulement en m’aimant tel que je suis.

Car tous ce qui existe sous le ciel sont pareils êtres.

Malheureux l'homme, mais chaque jour est parsemé des tribulations et d'agitation, mais que faire? Dieu a donné aux Israélites ce commandement de la manne, afin qu'ils puissent surmonter la nature coupable de l'homme et vivre le ciel déjà sur la terre. L'entrainement du pain quotidien est vraiment le meilleur entrainement pour l'homme.

Exodus 14: 10-31

Now the people of Israel joyfully starts to Canaan. But after being awakened by the plague of the firstborn, Pharaoh was hardened again to pursue Israel.

1) Are there not enough graves in Egypt?
 For a long time Israel was enslaved, the people have a low sense of autonomy. Now they are moving towards freedom, the fight for freedom starts. But they were weak and murmured against Moses, saying it was better to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert.

 2) You, keep silence
 To the people who were murmuring, Moses assured that God still loved them, saying, "The Lord will fight for you, and you, keep silence." The Lord borrowed the hand of Moses, and slew all the Egyptians by immersion in water. Israel believed in the Lord. Once we are born again, we are filled with emotion and joy, but when we want to grow to be worthy of God's children, that's another story. What is your attitude to the difficulties?

 Prayer: Thank you Lord, you saved me from the chains of sin. When I want to grow, help me to walk by faith and emotion always constant.

One Word: Wait for the power of the Lord in silence

Mes yeux croisent ton regard, et mon fardeau n’est plus.
Ta parole est la lumière à mes pieds,
Ta main prompte à bénir, ta bannière, un abri.

Dieu, tu es tout pour moi, toi qui créas ciel, terre et mer.
Tout ce que tu as mis en moi chante ton nom.
Je me prosterne devant toi, le roi par qui je vis,
Le fils de l’homme qui a conquis la mort.
Tu es tout pour moi, mon Dieu, mon roi.

Et quand je vois les cieux, ouvrage de tes mains,

Meditation of the day, "Divine justice vs. human justice."

1 Samuel 24: 1-23
This morning, God led me to the word of 1 Samuel 24 that describes the event of Ein Gedi cave. The story is that Saul chased David because of his jealousy. After the report of his situation, Saul and his 3000 elite departed in quest of David to Ein Gedi. He entered a cave with his men. But eventually, David found himself in the same place. Saul did not know the presence of David, but this one saw his entry. David's men said it was time he was able to eliminate and avenge Saul who always sought his life. But David said, "I will not put my hand against Saul, even though he was enemy, because he is the Messiah that is to say, the anointed of the Lord.

He cut off the skirt of the king's coat, and he went out with his men.  At a certain distance, David cried to the king by telling what happened and showing the skirt of the king's cloths. David says that God had delivered the person of Saul in his hand, but he had not brought his hand on him. So he insisted that he had a proper hand for the king. His hand was innocent. Then he said that the Lord God will avenge the king. Saul acknowleged his fault certainly before his 3000 elite soldiers that he was at fault, and more than that David would reign in his place, in recognizing that God is always on the side of right.

Here we find the righteousness of God is alive. The human justice is different from divine justice. According to David's men, to avenge an unjust enemy was quite fair and logical and reasonable. But to David, the prophet of God, it was not right. Anyway, Saul was a man that God had established according to his will. It is true that God had abandoned Saul because of his repeated disobedience. However, his position was not yet declined and man is enjoined to respect him without rushing to get an own idea. Many people especially political, disclaim their hope when someone is unpopular or blamed. They calculate and decide their action. A couple of time ago, as soon as a french woman politician declaired on a "white race", she was expelled from his party. Although this event has nothing to do with spirituality, it shows us the world situation. And the man is trying to make his own idea and is detached from it with great difficulty. How difficult it is to be in the right concept of divine justice.

When David walked in the path of divine justice, even the enemy recognized his fault as his interlocutor's right. Divine Justice always gives the victory, while the humain justice is relative, either by giving the success or failure. Hence our need to not see things in myopia, but over time, to trust in divine justice in spite of current disadvantages.

Méditation du jour, "La justice divine vs la justice humaine." 

1 Samuel 24:1-23

Ce matin, Dieu m'a conduit à la parole de 1 Samuel 24 qui décrit l'événement de la caverne d'Eyn Guédi. L'histoire est que Saül pourchassa David en raison de sa jalousie. Au rapport de sa situation, Saül partit avec 3000 élites à la quête de David à Eyn Guédi. Il entra dans une caverne avec ses hommes. Mais opportunément, David se trouva dans le même endroit. Saül ne sut pas la présence de David, mais celui-ci vit son entrée. Les gens de David dirent que c'était temps où il put éliminer et se venger de Saül qui en voulait toujours à sa vie. Mais David répondit, "Je ne porterai pas ma main contre Saül, quoi qu'il fut ennemi, car il est le messie c'est-à-dire l'oint de l'Eternel. 

Il coupa le pan du manteau du roi, et celui-ci sortit avec ses hommes, à une certaine distance, David s'écria vers le roi en racontant ce qui s'était passé et montrant la pièce du vêtement du roi. David dit que Dieu avait remis la personne de Saül dans sa main, mais il n'avait pas porté sa main sur lui. Ainsi il insista sur le fait qu'il avait une main propre envers le roi. Sa main était innocente. Puis il dit que l'Eternel Dieu se vengerait du roi. Saül reconnut sa faute certainement devant ses élites de 3000 soldats qu'il était fautif, et de plus David régnerait à sa place, en reconnaissant ainsi que Dieu est toujours du côté du juste. 

Nous trouvons ici la justice de Dieu qui est vivante. La justice de l'homme est différente de la justice divine. Selon les gens de David, se venger d'un ennemi injuste était tout à fait juste et logique et raisonnable. Mais aux de David, le prophète de Dieu, il n'était pas juste. Quoi qu'il en soit, Saül était un homme que Dieu avait établi selon sa volonté. Il est vrai que Dieu avait abandonné Saül à cause de sa désobéissance répétée. Néanmoins, sa position n'était pas encore déclinée et l'homme est enjoint de le respecter sans se précipiter de se faire une idée propre. Beaucoup de gens surtout les politiques, déclinent leur espoir dès que quelqu'un est impopulaire ou blâmé. Ils calculent et décident leur action. Il y a peu, dès qu'une femme prononce sur "une race blanche", elle fut exclue de sa partie. Même si cet événement n'a rien à voir avec la spiritualité, cela nous montre la situation du monde. Et l'homme est bien tenté de se faire sa propre idée et s'en détache très difficilement. Combien est-il difficile de se faire le juste concept de la justice divine. 

Quand David marcha dans le chemin de justice divine, même l'ennemi reconnut sa faute en même que son interlocuteur est juste. La justice divine donne toujours la victoire, alors que la justice humain est relative, en donnant soit le succès soit l'échec. D'où notre besoin de ne pas voir les choses à la myopie, mais à la longue, de nous fier à la justice divine malgré les désavantages actuels et proches.

Exodus 13: 17-22
From verse 1 to 16 of chapter 13 tell us a lot: the people of Israel should not be ungrateful, they must lead a grateful life. God says to remember the grace and set apart the firstborn of cattle and men to consecrate to the Lord who saved Israel with a mighty hand. God said that they must also remember that God delivered the people from the bondage of Pharaoh to bring them to the country flowing with milk and honey, write it and wear it like frontlet between your eyes. How easy it is to forget the grace and how grateful lead the life to something very fertile.

1) Israel dug the earth and brought Joseph's bones
When Israel went out of Egypt, they carried Joseph's bones by the oath he had sworn before his death (Gen. 50: 25). Although Joseph was the first minister, his hope was still in the land God had promised.

2) By day in a pillar of cloud by night in a pillar of fire
After living 450 years in slavery, when Israel crossed the desert, how did the Lord accompany them? God went before them by day in a pillar of cloud by night in a pillar of fire. When we walk in faith, God never abandons us but is always with us.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for what you have saved us by the blood of Jesus, help us to be always grateful to you by offering best things. When we follow you with gratitude, accompany us always.

Exodus 12: 37-51


Finally came the night of vigil in honor of Yahweh. It happened that Israel experienced a great joy of deliverance.

1) One night in honor of the Lord (37-42)

Thanks to the love and power of God, Israel came to be delivered from the hand of Pharaoh after 430 years (40). When Israel left Rameses and arrived at Sukkot, besides the children there were 600,000 men and countless tribes and animals (38). They left without any preparation. They, even if they had been entered Egypt as one family (1: 2), could now form a large armed force (41). God had trained his people in order to use them for his need. So Iseraélites' life in Egypt is something very precious. But if we consider only that sufferings from the human point of view, they become unnecessary people. The work of the Lord is fulfilled, on the night of the LORD.

2) the order of the Passover (43-51)

They say that if someone wanted to eat the Passover, he had to be circumcised. In this case, circumcision meant he received the purification of God and he became a new man. Only the new man can experience the joy of Easter.

Prayer: Lord, it is very sigificatif that you put the will on Israel and sent them to Egypt and trained them for 430 years. Lord leads France, our country through various tests and use it for your name.

Exodus 12: 1-13
The text today tells us a lot about what shoud be the attitude to take, after the plague of the firstborn of the Israelites, when they were preparing to Exodus. What is the subject of reflection here?

1) The need of Exodus
What was the situation of the Israelites in Egypt? They ate and lived under slavery in Egypt. To live and eat, they led a life of slavery in Egypt. So they led a life very overwhelming and suffering. It is the same for those who live the Christian life without having experienced forgiveness through Jesus Christ and freedom in him. They seem pretty happy, but in reality, in the interior are always the sigh, confusion and despair. It is necessary that the life of man, so that it be happy, 1) be conforme to the foreknowledge of God, and 2) leave the old life of sin, that is, it takes the path of the exodus.

2) The posture of the preparation for the Exodus
The Israelites should gird loins and put sandals on their feet. There are believers among the people who delude themselves thinking that by this level of effort they have made the exodus. But it is not so, this is just the beginning.

3) Lamb
To accomplish the exodus, it needs the blood of the lamb. It is the same for Christians so that they be able to strip their life of sin. In Exodus, we must take the blood of Christ.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for that you have made us recognize the need of Exodus so as to begin a life of faith. Help us to watch out and pray to take the blood of JC throughout our lives

The Lord God, because of his great patience, predicted to Pharaoh hardened that there would be the plague of darkness and misery to the Egyptians. But the hardened Pharaoh king was not listening. What did God do?

1) All the first-born unto cattle perish
The Lord wanted to persuade the Egyptians because of his patience, but Pharaoh still did not listen. As the Lord is holy, he can not let this evil. At the cost of living, he wanted to save him and bend the Egyptians. The Lord announced the death of all the firstborn, the one of Pharaoh, the ones of the workers unto the firstborn of cattle. But God said He will separate the Israelites so that they do not suffer any harm.

2) Pharaoh did not let the Israelites go
The book's author says that despite all these misfortunes were announced because of his stubbornness, Pharaoh would not let them go out of his land. Those who advance their stubbornness, their power by ignoring the life, personality and happiness of others are like Pharaoh, very uneducated.

Prayer: Lord, one who relies solely on his power ignoring the life and personality of others is the most cruel and merciless person in history. You know that we are bad, cover us, melt us with the word of grace.

Seeing the critical situation that the nation of Egypt was about to die, Pharaoh's loyal subjets approached to report the situation. Then Pharaoh said: you, men leave (11). Around us, Many Christians do this kind of negotiation, if you get me out of this difficult situation, if you make me succeed in this business, I will serve you. Please do not make me Bible teacher.

Exodus 9: 13-23
The LORD God commanded his servant Moses, sending him say to Pharaoh, let my people go, so that he may serve me. This freeing order of people, Pharaoh refused to listen it. What was the cause?

1) Pharaoh was unfair
At that time, the fact that people of Israel was enslaved, suffered from forced labor, was unfair. Once when they came down to Canaan, they were a free people. What we need to think about is the fact that powerful nation exploits the weak nation, this is one of the greatest injustices in the world. There are almost 40 years, a servant said, even if for the moment, Americans, Russians, dividing a country such as Korea, Vietnam, may have some temporary gain, but will come a day where they must have to pay this injustice. (this is the wheel of history that we feel ourselves today).

2) Pharaoh was proud
The people of Egypt have been cleared by a nod of the head, but even so, God let these people survive. The people of Egypt, however, was always proud, disobeyed God and was always proud. In a word, Pharaoh was a man who lives by his feelings. When he wants to sin, he sins. Depending on the circumstances, sometimes called the name of Yahweh, if necessary even repents, but basically he was a man who does not live according to the truth but according to his feelings. This kind of person is most unjust, haughty and they are dangerous people.

Prayer: Lord, we recognize that the people of a power which sells low people are not very wise, help me to live not according to my feelings but in truth. Down the mighty of this world, and help me now, I really want to live according to your word.

God sent the warning of the death of the animals, but this warning of death was limited to the life of the herd.

Until now the magicians did to Moses and Aaron competition for wonders, but they could not do anything now, they fell to the ground because of the scope of the 6th plague, ulcer. Even if they are living, their life was threatened. Tu us also sometimes God sends the warning, so that through this warning we can return from sin. At the same time, God teaches us that the consequence of sin is death. Despite this warning, we repeat our disobedience, even if it leads to death. So it is very wise that from the first small warnings we are beware of ourselves and obey the Lord. Do you have the opportunity to receive this kind of warnings from God?

Ex 8:1-15
 The Lord again sent Moses to Pharaoh to say "let my people go, so that they may serve me." Now God showed his power again through the plague of frogs. How will Pharaoh respond?

 1) The plague of frogs (8:1-14)
 They had elapsed 7 days after blood wound (7: 25). The LORD struck the Nile River which brings life to Egypt, so the Egyptians passed a very difficult period but it did not touch the heart of Pharaoh which was hardened that yet. Then the LORD sent a plague of frogs. Like the Indians love the ox as a god, the Egyptians worshiped frogs as God. They were completely upset because of this invasion of frogs. Because of this riot of frogs, Pharaoh became the object of criticism of the Egyptians, and he called Moses again to negotiate with him.

 2) Seeing that there was respite
 Because of this riot, God showed his power again in the world. At the same time Moses treated the matter with fidelity and magnanimity (10-11). After passing this difficult time, seeing that there was respite, the heart of Pharaoh was still hardened. This text shows that all these plagues came to Pharaoh because he lacked a sense of history. Therefore, all of Egypt was to undergo these plagues (mosquitoes, flies ...).

Prayer: Lord, you are the ruler of history, make sure that the ruler of this world willingly listen to the word of God

 One Word: frogs or money are not God

Exodus 7: 14-25
 The Lord God commanded Moses to go back to Pharaoh in the morning. The Lord wanted to "persuade" the Pharaoh to let his people go from through the 2nd scourge of change of blood Nile water. How Pharaoh respond?

 1) Go to Pharaoh in the morning
 God did not writh Pharaoh's arm to get his way, he wanted rather for Pharaoh to change his hardened heart through this scourge, so that he let go the people of Israel.

 2) The Lord gave a second scourge
 Despite the personal persuasion of the Lord, Pharaoh did not listen at all to the word of Moses. This is due to the fact that magicians did the same miracles by occult practices, so Pharaoh's heart is very hard.
 1) It refutes the persuasion of God for him.
 2) He does not care that his people could not drink the Nile water because of his hardness of heart.
 The powerful of this world who ignorent both the persuasion of God and the suffering of the people are all symbols of the devil.

Exodus 6: 28-7: 13

The LORD called Moses, sent him and said to him, I am the Lord, repeat to Pharaoh everything I say. As the ruler of history, the Lord sent him to say to Pharaoh what he will do against him. Perhaps Pharaoh king had an illusion that he was the ruler of the world.

1) You speak all that I say (28-30)
The Lord, the sovereign king of history, Moses sent to proclaim, announce what he will do for Pharaoh, King of Egypt. So the LORD God is the sovereign of history, but because of his lack of eloquence, Moses apologized for not obeying that order. Often for us there is also the time when because of the fear of the powerful of this world, we do not accept the word of the LORD

2) I will put my hand on Egypt (1-8)
As ruler of history, God sent Moses to Pharaoh to give the sentence of judgment. In same time that the Lord speaks of the judgment to be exercised, he also spoke of that the Pharaoh would not listen. But by believing in the promise that God would put his hand on Pharaoh, Moses departed. At that time, Moses was 80 years old.

3) The wizards (8-13)
The servants of God did miracles through the power of the Lord, and the magicians of Egypt did so with occult practices. The wonders of magicians have limits (12). Who do you think is the ruler of the history?

Exodus 6: 1-13
The Israelites who were hopeful by the message of salvation and liberty are now trampled by the Egyptians. Their joy has turned to sadness and despair into hope. In this situation, how God helped them?

1) God knows the suffering situation of Israel
Did God give only a consolation, negatively, in this situation ? God wanted rather positively, that Israel be removed from the situation to become the people of God. God wants us to extract ourselves from the overwhelming position of sin to become the people of God. But the reality of the fight against sins is often different. Sometimes we prefer to stay where we are, keeping the elements of sin in our lives.

2) God gives the order to leave the people
In front of the small difficulties, the people fell. Moses also became weak, but God ordered him to stand up for the people to leave out of Egypt. When God began his work, God led to completion. Are you a leader ? God gives us the order to get up and get out the people.

 Pharaoh ordered that the people don't have any more straw to make bricks, the people must be purchased on its own, but provide the same amount of work. The commissioners of the Israelites were strocken by theirs inspectors.

2) Israel became hateful to Pharaoh
 Commissioners complained to Pharaoh, but in vain. They met Moses and Aaron in the path and reproached them for having made odious in the eyes of Pharaoh. The people who lived slavery was afraid of the getting out of Egyptians' eyes. They were living under the daily humiliation they were humiliated at every moment, accustomed to humiliation as one breaths.

Exodus 4: 10-23

The humble heart is a virtue of the christian. The opposition and the excuse of Moses in front of the call of God comes from his insistence on his disability. If we insist too much on our disability, we make two kinds of sin:
 1) wickedness and laziness
 2) negligence of the power of God
He who pretends to be humble to cover his laziness can not do great things or avoid the wrath of God. Have a heavy heart when someone asks me a job is a proof that I am in sin. Moses was in sin. If he had believed in the power of God, he could do great things. Instead of that he delivered a very proud word "send whoever you want" to God. What was the error of Moses?

1) Moses took lightly God's call
 God never calls someone beyond his or her capacity. But Moses was deep in his consciousness of himself instead of believing in God and doing great things for Him

2) Moses took lightly God's promise
 He did not really believe, as God promised that his brother Aaron would support him. In fact, he should not really need his brother's help.
 Are you immersed in your self-awareness, or do you walk firmly believing in his calling and his promise?

Prayer: Lord, because of our self-awareness, we often fall into sin. Now I will give my full attention to your call

Exodus 4: 1-9
Often we give to one who is stubborn useful advice, but after if he does not accept it,  either we abandonne him or we ignore him. To help Israel, God holds the lengthy persuasion.

1) People whose belief is surprisingly slow
God is aware that Moses did not really believe in Him. Moses saw the burning bush and heard the name and the desire of the Lord toward his people (14, 17). But Moses, despite all that power of the Lord, takes account only of his weakness. The Lord predicted that even if Israel sees a miracle, they do not really believe. Israel moaned to get the help of the LORD, but deep in their hearts they do not really believe.

2) God whose persuasion is surprisingly patient
Instead of blaming the opposition and excuse of Moses, God waited. As to the Israelites, before giving up, God would lead the people to belief through third miracle. As God is humble, he is patient. How should you help those who are wrong?

Prayer: Lord, we give you thanks and glory for you have the patience to help Moses accustomed to despair and disillusionment, and to help the Israelites used to slavery and sin. You are worthy to be worshiped day by day

Exodus 3: 13-22
This passage is a conversation between God and Moses, who was called. God explains how Moses would present his God to the king of Egypt and the people slave Israel. When Moses believed in the power of God, he was able to realize a great work of God. It is the same for you.

1) "I am who I am"
God told Moses that if his people asked him his name, he answered "I am who I am." What does it mean? Our God is the one who was, who is. He is who created all things, the sovereign king of the history. God is not only God of power, but our God is the loving Father, who wants to save all mankind. We can not understand, with our little head which is the size of a chickpea, greatness of His power and mystery of His love. That is why God says "I am who I am." All the kings of the earth must be cautious before Him.

2) The God of Abraham, God of Isaac, God of Jacob
This is the God who wants to establish the ancestors of faith, and to save humanity through them. He is a God of hope, who wanted to lead to a new heaven and a new earth. Do you live your life by believing in God's power and love? If so, you will be a great existence on earth.

Ex 2: 23-25

At that time, what was the situation of Israel? Why does God became concerned about the children of Israel?

1) The Israelites groaned and cried out (23)
Israel is the new name of Jacob. At the same time, it is the name of the people generated by twelve son of Jacob. Israel was immigrated to Egypt when Joseph was prime minister in Egypt (1: 1-6). At the time, as Joseph had the core of the faith, he did not accept to abuse as he wished the favor of the Pharaoh (Genesis 45:18; 46:33, 34). But it seems that his descendants had lost the core of the faith. Consequently, all the pressure they underwent as a people deprived of sovereignty. Perhaps they were like the Jews living at the former Soviet Union.

2) God became concerned about Israel (24, 25)
God had pity on Israelite compatriots living in Egypt. Then he took care of them. Why did he take care of them? The author of Exodus says it's because he remembered 'alliance' that he had established with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Genesis 12: 2; 28: 4). God is faithful. God is the one who keeps his promise by which he is tied with those who believe in him. Do you live by believing in the promise of God?

Prayer: Lord, I am a cantankerous man. So I am distant from you in living in the world living based on flesh and material things. Sometimes I moan and cry, plunged into sin. Lord, however, you will never leave me. You take care of me according to thy word. I believe in you and depend on thee, my faithful Lord.

Marc 13: 26-37

Versets clés: 13: 26-27

"Alors on verra le Fils de l'homme venir sur les nuées avec beaucoup de puissance et de gloire. Alors il enverra ses anges et rassemblera ses élus des quatre vents, de l'extrémité de la terre jusqu'à l'extrémité du ciel."

Comme je vous ai parlé de la ponctualité au culte la semaine dernière, je trouve qu’il est judicieux de commencer mon message par une petite anecdote concernant l’actualité. L’équipe de grand favori de la coupe du monde de Rugby est celle d’All Black, équipe Néo-Zélandais. Elle a gagné contre la France hier. Nous avons lieu d’apprendre plusieurs esprits de cette équipe, car comme Rugby n’est pas un sport orbité par l’argent, mais son origine est bien noble qu’aucun autre sorte sportive. Ces esprits, si nous feuilletons les journaux et témoignages, nous ne tarderons pas de saisir en trois, c’est le défi, en sorte que dès qu’on tombe, on se doit de se relever et repartir. Le deuxième que j’ai saisi, je l’ai oublié, c’est pas grave. Le troisième, c’est l’esprit d’exemplarité. Il s’agit de mettre « je » avant « nous. » L’esprit d’équipe fait place à l’égoïsme. Il y avait un joueur très célèbre il y a quelques années appelé Rokocoko, ailier de l’équipe néo-zélandais. Il était un homme à peau noire. Il était le recru. Or, dans la première semaine de sa sélection, il était en retard à une séance de musculation du matin. L’après-midi, trois joueurs ont ordonné tout l’équipe de descendre le bus, sauf lui, et l’ont recadré, alors qu’il a voulu se justifier, « Hé, c’est ta première semaine, on ne veut plus te voir en retard, Hein ! » Depuis, un grand cœur apprenant, il témoigna que non par imposition, mais par respect des gars qu’il aimait, il était toujours ponctuel et ça l’a fait grandir. Notre guerre n’est pas contre sang et chair, mais contre esprit. L’esprit de défi, et l’esprit d’équipe font gagner beaucoup de combats non seulement dans le match de Rugby, mais comme ils sont de l’esprit biblique, quand Paul dit, « Je puis tout par celui qui me fortifie » « vous demeurez fermes dans un même esprit, combattant d’une même âme pour la foi de l’Evangile », ils nous donnent de victoire en victoire, comme ces gars robustes d’All Black.

Nous allons étudier qui est le Fils de l'homme et que le Fils de l'homme fait. En fin de compte, nous voulons savoir quand le Fils de l'homme viendra pour nous sauver de la main du diable et nous faire entrer dans le royaume glorieux de Dieu. Dans le dernier passage, nous avons étudié sur les signes de la fin des temps. Mais nous avons ajusté le titre selon le contenu du passage, "Prêche l'Evangile dans ce monde." Dans ce monde, il semble impossible pour les mortels de penser à l'Evangile ou prêcher l'Evangile aux autres à cause du relativisme qui a été commencé par Immanuel Kant "Critique de la raison pure", dont le propos résumé est de rendre la Métaphysique comme apprenante de la « pur science » telle la Mathématique et la Physique et plus tard par le travail de Jean Jacques Rousseau, "L'origine de l'inégalité humaine." Le relativisme a été endémique. Le relativisme piétine le sol du monde. Nous avons perdu la crainte de Dieu. Tout le monde veut être un Dieu. Tout le monde ne veut être rien. Dans ce monde le phénomène le plus tragique est que personne ne se reconnaît comme l'a fait saint Paul qui a donné son témoignage, «... par la grâce de Dieu je suis ce que je suis » (1Co 15:10). Tous sont vides dans leurs âmes à cause de la vie qu'ils vivent de façon relativiste de la vie. Une façon relativiste de la vie conduit l'homme à la chair. La chair réussit autant qu'il puisse réussir. 1 Pierre 1: 24,25a dire, "Car toute la chair est comme l'herbe, et toute sa gloire comme la fleur de l'herbe. L'herbe sèche, la fleur tombe, mais la parole du Seigneur demeure éternellement." Amen. Jésus a vu que ses disciples ont été contrariés par la mise à sac des poches par des sorciers. Ils ne pouvaient pas également supporter ceux qui les séduisaient et étaient séduits eux-mêmes. Ils avaient vraiment en horreur la décoration extérieure des pharisiens et la corruption à l'intérieur. De plus, le frère livrera son frère; les enfants se révolteraient contre leurs parents et les auront mis à mort (12). Oh la la ! Comment les enfants peuvent trahir leurs parents et les mettre à mort en dénonçant quelque chose à l'autorité juive ? Je pensais que la réunion d'auto-évaluation de Staline était le pire événement dans l'histoire du monde. Mais elle avait été déjà faite à l'époque de Jésus, cette auto-évaluation qui conduit l'homme à la mort.

     Quand nous pensons au monde et à l'avenir de nos enfants, nous sentons que nous sommes trop jeunes pour mourir, et vivre dans ce monde est trop de tourment. Nous ne pouvons pas penser autrement. Mais Jésus dit au verset 10, "Il faut premièrement que l'Evangile soit prêché à toutes les nations." Oh quelle merveilleuse espérance de Dieu! Cela signifie que la parole de Dieu est plus forte que la puissance des ténèbres. Jésus a aussi dit que la situation mondiale n'est rien que la douleur de l'enfantement d'une mère qui gémit et attend un bébé (8). Après l'accouchement du bébé, si elle est un garçon, elle fait un sourire tranquille, et dans trois minutes, toute la douleur de l'enfantement est oublié, elle tombe dans un profond sommeil dans une grande joie et d'espoir. Dans le cas où c'est une fille, encore elle est heureuse. Mais elle a besoin d'un peu plus de temps pour obtenir le sommeil. Pourtant, elle est joyeuse. C’est merveilleux que le monde troublé n'est rien, mais la douleur de l'enfantement. En d’autres mots, il est l'indication de la venue du Messie. La foi de Jésus est la foi de Dieu Tout-Puissant. Notre foi peut être décrite comme "un insecte éphémère" qui vit une seule journée. Baudelaire (1821-1867) a vu l'homme comme le mouvement des vers tortillant dans un étang. Quand nous pensons au monde, nous ne savons pas si le monde est fou ou moi-même est rendu fou. Parfois nous voulons faire quelque chose de bon. Mais cette idée disparaît dans l'après-midi quand nous voyons le monde dans lequel les vers sont tortillant dans un étang. Nous devenons étourdis. Nous ne pouvons pas nous empêcher de penser que nous sommes l'un d'eux. Nous perdons toutes nos forces et oublions la prédication de l'évangile de Jésus-Christ.

     Mais nous devons suivre la foi de notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ. Quand Jésus devait parler des signes de la fin des temps, son verset clé était Marc 13:10: "Il faut premièrement que la bonne nouvelle soit prêchée à toutes les nations." Il n'a pas dit d'"une nation." Il a dit, "des nations." Quelle vision fantastique! Quel fantastique plan de salut du monde de Jésus en conformité avec le plan de Dieu du salut du monde. Nous nous émerveillons et faisons louange à Jésus qui est le Fils unique de Dieu. Nous devons nous tenir fermes, en écoutant les paroles de Jésus. Nous devons d'abord prêcher l'Evangile à toutes les nations. Non seulement la France doit être un royaume de sacrificateurs et une nation sainte, mais le peuple de Tibet qui trouve un sens dans Bouddha doit accepter l'Évangile de notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ et obéir à ce commandement. Les tibétains ont rejeté la Chine, qui voulait changer Tibet en une nation démocratique social comme la Chine, selon la doctrine de Mao Tsé-toung. Mais nous prions pour que même le Tibet peut accepter l'Évangile de Jésus-Christ et de se repentir et croire en Jésus, en sorte qu'ils peuvent ne pas périr mais ait la vie éternelle. Donc, nous devons prêcher aux chinois jusqu’à ce qu’ils acceptent la mission d’aller au Tibet comme missionnaire. 

     Jésus a également vu le monde troublé comme un signe de douleur de l'enfantement. Jésus ne se désespérait pas de la situation du monde. Plutôt, il avait une joie comme celle d'une femme accouchant d'un seul et unique fils. Loué soit Jésus qui avait l'espoir et la joie à tout moment parce qu'il était avec Dieu! Nous voulons avoir ce genre de la foi. Mais dès que nous voulons accepter la foi de la douleur de l'enfantement, dans les cinq prochaines minutes, nous nous sentons étourdis, en pensant, "Comment pouvons-nous accepter la foi de Jésus par laquelle ce monde troublé est comparée à une douleur de l'enfantement qui est pleine d'espoir et de joie." Mais nous devons mettre à genoux, demandant la miséricorde de Dieu pour avoir cette sorte de foi. Sinon, notre travail dans le Seigneur sera fatigant. La vie sans mission devient écrasante et épuisante. Mais la vie en mission est joyeuse et hilarante.

Premièrement, le Fils de l'homme (26a). Que signifie "Fils de l'homme" dans ce cas ? Marc, qui avait vécu dans l'abondance comme un homme de la ville, un peu comme Kangnam Style, a été converti en regardant la vie de serviteur de Jésus. Il n'a pas réussi à suivre le premier voyage missionnaire de Saint Paul et été parti subrepticement. Plus tard, il est revenu à Saint Paul et a suivi les traces de Jésus, avec Saint Paul, jusqu'à la fin. Lorsque nous voyons des gens faibles, nous voulons leur donner un coup de poing dans la tête. Mais nous ne devons pas leur frapper la tête. Nous devons attendre jusqu'à ce qu'ils deviennent très forts. Marc a vu Jésus comme un serviteur. Mais lorsque nous lisons la Bible tout entière, "Fils de l'homme" signifie quelqu'un de spectaculaire et redoutable, si bien que nous ne pouvons que l'adorer, en se prosternant à nos genoux.

     Lorsque nous lisons la Bible, nous trouvons que le Fils de l'homme est le Dieu Créateur. Jean 1: 3-4 dit: "Tout a été fait par elle, et rien de ce qui a été fait n'a été fait sans elle. En elle était la vie, et la vie était la lumière des hommes." Ces versets nous disent clairement que notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ était à l'origine Dieu lui-même dans le royaume de Dieu. Mais il a vu des gens périr de jour en jour. Et dans le même temps, le royaume de Dieu n'était pas rempli. Il était désolé. Il a regretté qu'il ait puni les gens au temps de Noé quand ils ne faisaient que boire et manger et boire et manger et abuser de la relation humaine sainte entre homme et femme. Il a sauvé seulement la famille de Noé et ses animaux et purgé le reste par le l'eau du déluge. Dieu était très fâché quand il a vu que la famille de Noé a été contaminé par le péché. Il était terriblement désolé de voir cela.

     Donc, Dieu a envoyé tant de prophètes pour les détourner du monde vers Dieu. Mais ils ont tué les prophètes, les serviteurs de Dieu comme leur semblait bon, et ont décoré leur tombes avec de belles fleurs. Quel comportement sarcastique! Il était une fois le prophète Elie. A cette époque, le peuple élu d'Israël est devenu tous les adorateurs de Baal. Seulement, lui et Elisée vivaient comme serviteurs de Dieu. Un jour, Dieu lui a donné la puissance de Dieu dans son cœur. Elie a défié 450 prophètes de Baal. Quand ils ont perdu la partie, le prophète Élie les a tous égorgés dans la vallée du Cédron. Quand il avait le pouvoir de Dieu, il était un général de cinq étoiles en faisant le travail de Dieu. Mais il a couru loin dans la crainte de Jézabel, la femme du roi Achab et la chef d'adorateurs de Baal. Il a couru et couru et est venu à la pente d'une montagne. Il a dit, "C'en est trop! Maintenant, Eternel, prends ma vie, car je ne suis pas meilleur que mes pères "(1 Rois 19: 4). Qu'est-ce que Dieu lui a dit ? "Élie, non." "Mais je laisserai en Israël sept mille homme, tous ceux qui n'ont pas fléchi les genoux devant Baal, et dont la bouche ne l'a pas baisé" (1 Rois 19:18). Ceci est non seulement le problème du prophète Elie, il est le problème de nous tous. Lorsque nous regardons autour et autour, personne ne semble être dévouée à Jésus personnellement. Leurs pantalons de gym se déchirent à l’arrière à la recherche de la sécurité du monde. Mais Dieu dit, "Mais je laisserai en Israël sept mille hommes, tous ceux qui n'ont pas fléchi les genoux devant Baal, et dont la bouche ne l'a pas baisé" (1 Rois 19:18). Dans ma ville, les gens ne savent pas que je suis un rescapé de Dieu. Mais je suis un rescapé de Dieu comme vous le savez bien. Le monde semble être plein de gens impies. Mais ce n'est pas vrai. Il y a des hommes de prière, des hommes portés à l'étude biblique, des hommes de foi. Leurs chiffres sont plus que n'importe quel groupe de personnes. Leur nombre est plus grand que tous les soldats du monde. Croyez-vous cela? Oui! On doit le croire, parce que Dieu l'a dit.

     L'existence du Fils de Dieu n'est pas fortuite. Quand le monde est tombé à cause de la désobéissance d'Adam, le cœur de Dieu a été brisé. Dieu d'abord leur a donné l'évangile primitif dans Genèse 3:15. Il dit: "Je mettrai l'inimitié entre toi et la femme, entre ta descendance et sa descendance; celle-ci t’écrasera la tête et tu lui écrasera le talon." Nous l'appelons évangile primitif. Dans cet évangile primitif, Dieu nous a donné une alliance qu'à travers son Fils, Dieu va écraser la puissance de Satan et sauver tous les hommes de leurs péchés.

     Cette prophétie est à plusieurs reprises écrite dans la Bible. Esaïe 11: 1 dit: "Un rameau sortira du tronc d'Isaï, Et le rejeton de ses racines fructifiera." Ici "ses racines" indique que des descendants de David, un Sauveur du monde viendra. A quoi ressemble le Sauveur du monde ? Il est le Fils de Dieu qui est merveilleux. Ésaïe 9: 5 dit, "Un fils nous est donné, Et la souveraineté reposera sur son épaule; On l'appellera Admirable, Conseiller, Dieu puissant, Père éternel, Prince de la paix." En bref, le Messie qui va venir est comme notre Père éternel. Ceux qui n'ont pas père, l'acceptent comme votre Père éternel. Ceux qui se plaignent qu'ils ne disposent pas d'un père décent, se repentent et acceptent le Père Eternel, Jésus Christ, notre Messie.

Deuxièmement, l'attente des gens pour le Messie. Pensons aux gens dans l'attente du Messie. A partir du temps où Jésus est monté au ciel, ils ont pensé que Jésus viendrait très vite, en se disant : aujourd'hui ou demain. C'était urgent pour eux parce qu'ils étaient d’un statut des criminels sans défense devant l'autorité communautaire des juifs et l'empereur romain - qui se prétendait être lui-même dieu Jupiter. D'autre part, il y avait des gens qui attendaient la venue du Messie depuis le début. Quand les Israélites ne pouvaient pas supporter la bénédiction de Dieu sur la terre promise, ils ont été entraînés dans Babylone comme captifs. Un des Psalmistes écrit ce qui suit: "Auprès des fleuves de Babylone, Là nous étions assis et nous pleurions En nous souvenant de Sion. Aux saules de la contrée Nous avions suspendu nos harpes. Là, nos vainqueurs nous demandaient des cantiques, Et nos bourreaux de la joie : Chantez-nous quelques-uns des cantiques de Sion ! Comment chanterions-nous le cantique de l'Éternel Sur un sol étranger ?" (Ps 137: 1-4) Dans ce poème, nous apprenons qu'ils étaient captifs vivant dans une terre de langue étrangère. Il y avait aussi les gens qui attendaient le Messie à venir. Ils aimaient la musique, mais ont perdu leur goût de loisir et pleuraient et attendaient seulement la venue du Messie qui les délivrerait de leur misère. Comment puis-je raconter toutes les histoires des gens qui attendent le Messie ?

     Il était un homme pieux qui attendait le Messie. Finalement, il se rendit compte que Dieu est incarné et est venu dans ce monde et est né et couché dans une crèche. Le huitième jour, au moment de la circoncision, il a vu Jésus, et ce vieil homme à cheveux blancs s'est mis à genoux et a loué Dieu, "Maintenant, Maître, tu laisses ton serviteur S'en aller en paix selon ta parole. Car mes yeux ont vu ton salut, Que tu as préparé devant tous les peuples, Lumière pour éclairer les nations Et gloire de ton peuple, Israël" (Lc 2, 29-32). Quel beau poème dans la promesse de la venue du Messie! Il a vu le Messie avec ses yeux; même s'il avait la vue courte, cela ne lui avait pas d'importance. Siméon a senti que, même s'il sera décédé, il était plus qu'heureux, car il a vu que le Messie promis était venu dans ce monde.

Troisièmement, que le Messie promis viendra-t-il faire ? Comme nous l'avons pensé, il est le Dieu Créateur du ciel et de la terre. Mais il est venu dans ce monde pour rendre gloire à Dieu et donner la paix aux hommes. Luc 2:14 dit, "Gloire à Dieu dans les lieux très hauts, Et paix sur la terre parmi les hommes qu'il agrée !" Il est aussi venu se mêler à toutes sortes de personnes dans le besoin et prendre soin d'eux et finalement mourir pour eux sur la croix et ressusciter. Ainsi, il a ouvert la voie dans le royaume de Dieu pour tous les êtres humains qui croient en lui. Jean 1:14 dit, "La Parole a été faite chair et elle a habité parmi nous. Nous avons vu sa gloire, la gloire du Fils unique, qui est venu du Père, plein de grâce et de vérité." Ceci est la description de St. Jean sur l'incarnation de notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ. Il est court, mais le plus exquis et excellant de tous les poèmes. Il a parlé du renoncement de Jésus de la gloire et la puissance et l'honneur du royaume de Dieu pour devenir le plus pauvre, celui qui est né et couché dans une mangeoire. Pour lui, cette scène est pleine de grâce et de vérité. Je l'ai dit, "Nous avons vu cette scène, pleine de grâce et de la vérité." Il est si gracieux que je ne peux plus délivrer encore mon message.

     Le Fils de Dieu est devenu comme une personne ordinaire. Et il a guéri les malades jour et nuit. Un jour, cinq mille hommes se sont rassemblés autour de lui. Il a d'abord prêché l'évangile. Ensuite, il les a nourris avec cinq pains et deux poissons d'André. Que c'est remarquable! La chose vraiment remarquable est le cœur de berger de Jésus. Comment pouvait-il rester là-bas et prendre soin de cinq mille hommes un par un et aussi implanter en eux l'espoir de vivre dans le royaume de Dieu ?

     Une fois qu'il a rencontré sur la route un homme criard et aveugle, "Fils de David, aie pitié de moi! » (Mc 10:47) ses disciples et les membres de l'entourage ont arrêté l'aveugle, en disant: "Tais-toi, aveugle!" Mais Jésus a entendu sa voix qui a crié, "Fils de David, aie pitié de moi!" Jésus a ordonné à ses disciples de lui amener. Sûrement Jésus aurait dû l'étreindre et donner le baiser à ses yeux aveugles et ouvrir les yeux. Maintenant, il pouvait voir le visage de sa mère. Maintenant il avait de l'espoir du mariage. C'était parce que ses yeux étaient normaux comme ceux d'un prince céleste. Il était une fois une femme égratignant. Elle était une solitaire. Même les femmes du village samaritain ne lui ont pas fait face parce qu’elle aimait et abusaient de son corps et s'est mariée cinq fois et a eu un autre petit ami. Sa mauvaise réputation s'est répandue dans toute la ville. Jésus était assis au bord du puits entre le mont Ebal et le mont Garizim, alors qu'il attendait que ses disciples reviennent avec un peu de nourriture. Jésus l'a embrassée en disant, "Donne-moi à boire." Elle n'a jamais rencontré un jeune homme humble qui avait l'air si noble et saint. Une femme de mauvaise mœurs dans l’industrie cybernétique a pleuré, car invité dans une église, un homme est venu à elle et a regardé au blanc de ses yeux et dit, « qu’est-ce dans ta vie ? » Malgré la turbulence de sa vie y compris deux fois de la maladie transmissible, ce serviteur de Dieu lui proposa la main. C’est un témoignage vraiment touchant. De cette façon, la femme de Samarie pouvait boire de l'eau de vie jaillissante pour la vie éternelle et a été changé d'une femme d'égratignage à une princesse céleste. Son ministère de guérison est l'expression de l'amour de Dieu envers l'humanité. Son ministère de guérison est une révélation de l'amour de Dieu.

     Enfin, après son ministère terrestre messianique était terminée, il était crucifié sur la croix par le complot des pharisiens. Les Pharisiens étaient connus comme le peuple élu de Dieu. Mais Jésus est venu et a été couché dans une crèche et il allait partout avec les douze disciples comme mendiant. Ils l'ont méprisé et rejeté. Pourtant, sa popularité s’élevait et ils se sentaient menacés. Il est ironique de constater que ceux qui avaient à l'accueillir l'ont finalement entraîné à Golgotha pour le crucifier. Quels mesquins désirs des humains ! Les Pharisiens étaient les Juifs traditionnels qui ont été choisis par Dieu. Exode 19: 5 dit: "Maintenant, si vous écoutez ma voix et si vous gardez mon alliance, vous m'appartiendrez en propre entre tous les peuples, car toute la terre est à moi." Dieu a choisi le peuple d'Israël comme son peuple élu parmi de nombreuses nations pour remplir le plan du salut du monde de Dieu. Ils avaient aussi une grande fierté d'être un peuple élu. Parfois, ils ont joué le rôle d'être un peuple élu. Mais plus tard, ils ont utilisé un peuple élu comme un titre honorable. John 8:33 dit, "Ils lui répondirent: "Ils lui répondirent : Nous sommes la descendance d'Abraham et nous n'avons jamais été esclaves de personne ; comment dis-tu : Vous deviendrez libres ?" En ce verset, nous apprenons qu'ils ont été nourris avec le titre honorable "un peuple élu". Ils ont méprisé tous les autres peuples des nations comme des animaux marchants. Ils ont rendu Dieu très désolé. Jésus, de son cœur brisé, dit à eux, "Vous avez pour père le diable, et vous voulez accomplir les désirs de votre père. Il a été meurtrier dès le commencement, et il ne s'est pas tenu dans la vérité, parce que la vérité n'est pas en lui. Lorsqu'il profère le mensonge, ses paroles viennent de lui-même car il est menteur et le père du mensonge." (Jn 8:44) Jean 1: 11 dit, "Elle est venue chez les siens, et les siens ne l'ont pas reçue;" Le peuple élu d'Israël n'a pas accepté le Messie promis depuis le début. C'est en effet un événement tragique. Ils attendaient le Messie promis, pleuraient et criaient si longtemps. Quand Jésus est venu comme le Messie promis, ils l’ont rejeté et méprisé. Enfin, par l'intrigue politique, ils ont crucifié sur la croix. Ils pensaient qu'ils ont remporté la victoire. Mais ils étaient les pires perdants parmi tous les perdants du monde.

     Le troisième jour, il a été ressuscité par la puissance de Dieu. Actes 2: 23,24 dit: "cet homme, livré selon le dessein arrêté et selon la prescience de Dieu, vous l'avez fait mourir en le clouant (à la croix) par la main des impies. Dieu l'a ressuscité, en le délivrant des liens de la mort, parce qu'il n'était pas possible qu'il soit retenu par elle." Le Christ ressuscité a rencontré Marie-Madeleine qui était la femme la plus impure dans le monde. C'était parce que Jésus a pensé que Marie était une femme très pathétique. Ensuite, Jésus ressuscité a rencontré Pierre, après quoi il a rencontré cinq cents frères à la fois. Enfin, il a rencontré Jacques et ensuite il a également rencontré Paul, le moindre des apôtres, qui ne méritaient pas d'être appelé apôtre, parce qu'il a persécuté l'Eglise de Dieu. Il a dit, "Mais par la grâce de Dieu je suis ce que je suis" (1Co 15:10). Paul était indigne d'être appelé apôtre. Mais Dieu l'a choisi pour utiliser le dynamisme dans son esprit et a pardonné tous ses péchés et fait de lui un apôtre pour les Gentils. Réellement, à son époque, la majorité absolue des personnes du monde étaient des Gentil.

Quatrièmement, qui le Messie promis sera-t-il ? (26-31). Lisons le verset 26. "Alors on verra le Fils de l'homme venir sur les nuées avec beaucoup de puissance et de gloire." Quand notre Seigneur Jésus est venu dans le monde pour la première fois, il est venu comme un bébé dans une crèche, même s'il a eu la vie de Dieu en lui. Mais à la seconde venue nous allons voir le Fils de l'homme venir sur les nuées avec grande puissance et gloire. Cela signifie que Jésus ne vient pas comme un bon berger; il va venir comme le Dieu Tout-Puissant. Il vient aussi comme le roi souverain du monde. Sa venue sur les nuées avec grande puissance et gloire implique qu'il n'a pas besoin d'un avion pour sa seconde venue. Parce qu'il est Dieu, nuages peuvent être son avion et ce qu'il a est une grande puissance et gloire.

     Qu'est-ce qu'il va faire quand il vient? Il enverra ses anges pour rassembler ses élus des quatre vents, depuis les extrémités de la terre jusqu'aux extrémités des cieux (27). Ce type épique d'expression est trop grandiose pour comprendre. Cependant, le point principal est qu'il va voir ses élus. Qui sont ses élus? Ses élus ne sont pas les Pharisiens, mais ceux qui se sont dévoués pour le travail du salut du monde. Qui sont ses élus? Ils sont ceux qui ont vécu pour l'amour de son nom. Parfois nous pensons que notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ ne se rappellera pas ce que nous aurons fait et souffert. Mais Lisons le verset 27. Il dit: "Alors il enverra ses anges et rassemblera ses élus des quatre vents, de l'extrémité de la terre jusqu'à l'extrémité du ciel." C’est un grand encouragement pour nous qu'il se souvient de chacun de nous, qu’il s’est engagé à lui, et a donné son temps pour lui, et s’est sacrifié pour ses brebis, et est en son nom, méprisé et rejeté. Notre Seigneur Dieu n'a jamais ignoré ses élus. Je vous le dis à nouveau le fait que ses élus ne signifie pas nécessairement les pharisiens, mais les chrétiens engagés qui auront souffert à cause de son nom.

     Nous pouvons comprendre sa venue à travers la nature. Lisons les versets 28-31. "Recevez l'enseignement de la parabole du figuier : dès que ses branches deviennent tendres et que les feuilles poussent, vous savez que l'été est proche. De même, vous aussi, quand vous verrez ces choses arriver, sachez que (le Fils de l'homme) est proche, à la porte. En vérité, je vous le dis, cette génération ne passera point que tout cela n'arrive. Le ciel et la terre passeront, mais mes paroles ne passeront point." La seconde venue de Jésus est très naturelle et très belle.

Cinquièmement, Jésus est digne d'être le Messie. Marc a mentionné la deuxième venue du Messie de façon concise. Mais la venue du Messie est décrite plus vivement par saint Jean. Apocalypse 1: 1 dit, "Révélation de Jésus-Christ, que Dieu lui a donnée pour montrer à ses serviteurs ce qui doit arriver bientôt, et qu'il a fait connaître par l'envoi de son ange à son serviteur Jean, " Apocalypse 1: 9 dit encore: "Moi Jean, qui suis votre frère et qui prends part à la tribulation, à la royauté et à la persévérance en Jésus, j'étais dans l'île appelée Patmos, à cause de la parole de Dieu et du témoignage de Jésus." Quel est le témoignage de Jésus ? Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ, le Messie a révélé la sainteté de Dieu. Apocalypse 2:27 dit, "Avec un sceptre de fer il les fera paître, comme on brise les vases d'argile, ainsi que j'en ai reçu moi-même (le pouvoir) de mon Père." Jésus est le Fils de Dieu Tout-Puissant. Il a le pouvoir, la gloire et l'honneur. Mais pendant sur la terre, il s'est révélé un Dieu saint. Apocalypse 4: 8b dit: "Saint, saint, saint est le Seigneur Dieu, le Tout-Puissant qui était, qui est et qui vient ! " Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ est Tout-Puissant Dieu souverain qui gouverne le monde. Apocalypse 4:11 dit, "Tu es digne, notre Seigneur et notre Dieu, de recevoir la gloire, l'honneur et la puissance, car tu as créé toutes choses, et c'est par ta volonté qu'elles existent et qu'elles furent créées." Ensuite, Apocalypse 5:12 continue à décrire que Jésus est digne d'être le Messie. Il y avait une voix forte proclamé au monde entier. Apocalypse 5:12 dit, "Ils disaient d'une voix forte : L'Agneau qui a été immolé est digne de recevoir puissance, richesse, sagesse, force, honneur, gloire et louange." Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ est le Dieu Tout-Puissant. Et s'il avait écrasé et abandonné les êtres humains pécheurs, il resterait comme le Tout-Puissant, Dieu puissant. Mais il n'a pas écrasé les hommes pécheurs. Il s'est écrasé comme l'Agneau de Dieu sur la croix et a été tué pour sauver les hommes de leurs péchés. Ainsi il a prouvé qu'il est digne d'être le Messie. Amen. Amen. Alléluia. Amen. Alléluia. Notre Jésus le Messie mérite de recevoir la puissance, la richesse, la sagesse et la force, l'honneur, la gloire et la louange et notre adoration de ses élus qui ont souffert et mout en suivant les traces de notre Seigneur Jésus Christ.

Sixièmement, nous ne savons pas quand il reviendra (32-37). À travers l'histoire, à partir du jour de l'ascension de Jésus, ils espéraient que Jésus reviendrait. Cela a continué pendant les vingt derniers siècles. Il y a beaucoup de médecins sorciers qui font usage de la seconde venue de Jésus. L'un des femmes sorcières a ordonné et loué ses disciples en disant qu'ils seraient tous grands et elle a prophétisé que Jésus reviendrait sur 30 Octobre, 1992 et ce serait le moment de ravissement. Je l'ai vu une photo de l'une des les femmes que je connais frissonner et là, debout. Ce jour-là, ils ont attendu toute la nuit. Mais Jésus n'est pas venu.

     Pourquoi Jésus ne leur dit pas quand il venait à nouveau? C'est parce que il y a un danger que les gens vont se reposer à temps plein ordinaire jusqu'au jour Jésus vienne à nouveau. Puis le jour Jésus revient, ils se repentiront et accepteront Jésus et voudront être dans le ravissement. Ainsi, Jésus a fait de sa deuxième venue un secret.

     Lisons 13: 35-37. "Veillez donc, car vous ne savez quand viendra le maître de la maison, le soir, ou au milieu de la nuit, ou au chant du coq, ou le matin ; Craignez qu'il n'arrive à l'improviste et ne vous trouve endormis. Ce que je vous dis, je le dis à tous : Veillez." Ces versets nous enseignent que nous devons vivre la vie des pèlerins. Dans l'espoir de la seconde venue de notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ, nous ne perdons pas de temps, mais travaillons dur jour et nuit pour la gloire de Dieu. Par conséquent, les gens paresseux ne peuvent pas voir la seconde venue de Jésus Christ. Il y a beaucoup de membres de l'église charismatiques. Au lieu de crier et danser, ils doivent se donner à une étude biblique de seul à seul. Non seulement ça, nous devons aussi faire le travail de Dieu à travers la seul à seul étude de la Bible et vivre une vie de pèlerins. Alors certes, Dieu nous inclura dans les élus du ciel et la terre quand il vient avec puissance et gloire sur les nués.
