    A reflection on the Coronavirus

    Hi all! Like everyone reading this I too am affected by the Corona virus pandemic. A new way of life has been thrust upon us. Events at churches and major venues are being cancelled. As for myself, dear reader, I am now to work from home indefinitely. But do not despair, for there are several things still in effect in these trying times. I have compiled my personal top 5 (in no particular order):

    #5 Easter is not cancelled

    Easter is still scheduled for April 12th of 2020. In a greater sense, Christ is still the Resurrected King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He still reigns supreme over Heaven and Earth.

    #4 Dignity is not cancelled

    Sure the news is rife with stories of hoarding supplies and theft of test kits. But there are stories of hope abounding as well. Shelter anmials being given homes. The homeless being granted emergency shelters. Volunteers sewing face masks by hand. Human decency is all around; it just doesn’t make the media as often as it should. See the link below for proof:

    http://goodnewsnetwork.org

    #3 Faith is not cancelled

    God is still listening and answering prayers. Front line nurses and doctors are still hard at work. Police, firefighters, and the military are still keeping us safe.

    #2 Love is not cancelled

    See all of the above. God’s love still reigns supreme. He has not abandoned nor forsaken the human race. And #1 in my top 5:

    #1 Hope is not cancelled

    One day this will all end. It will be a long time before things get back to “normal”, but make no mistake…there will come a day when the Coronavirus is contained if not completely erradicated. And what a joyful day that will be! God will see us thru to that day. It’s only a matter of time.

    God Bless!

    Zahra’S Zeal – Hell on Earth, or Earth in Hell?

    Earth in Hell

    What if I hadn’t changed, what if I hadn’t come back to God at age 24? Would I have been sorry in the end for continuously defying His efforts to pull me out of mental illness? And would Mom’s vision of me in flames have come true?

    She told me of this vision days after I came back home from the hospital after yet another suicide attempt. “You’d better change your mind about where you want your life to go, or we will both be sorry,” she said in a solemn tone. “What are you saying?” I asked incredulously, knowing with a sense of horror what she was insinuating. “If you go, I do, too,” she responded.

    Now another life depended on me. It was time to get serious. God was really warning me, wasn’t He? It was time to let go of the darkness, the anger, the hate, the inner demons. It was time to embrace the light. His Light.

    It would not be long before my spiritual demise, and maybe even my earthly demise, if I did not change. I was not always this way which I am now, friends – jolly, loving, friendly. I had my own Gethsemane years. I lived hell on earth, and I maybe lived earth in hell – in dreams/visions I visited hell. I will warn you that God made certain Commandments for a reason. I realize these are very heavy topics. But I am trying to help people from making permanent mistakes with permanent consequences.

    In my case, Satan has always been after me. There are about two or three Priests who cared to save my life and my very soul, that I have met in my lifetime. One did a minor exorcism on me in December of 2018 at age 29 when it was all starting to surface again, but this is because a major one would have actually done damage. Only a minor one was needed. There are different levels depending on the “symptoms,” so to speak, and the power of the demon involved. While I will spare you the details, I will say they are more horrifying that any movie or TV show.

    These past five months, I feel him trying to get me again. Strange things happen, and I try to fight it, but I am very spiritually worn. Recently a friend had a scary dream about me, and it has me shaken. I do not know what this means. But it is scary for me.

    Still, I fight. And I fight. I NEVER GIVE UP, and if I will not, NEITHER SHOULD YOU. I do not know when I will see an end to this battle, but somehow I feel that I will spend a lifetime fighting the devil off. My main concern is to protect others from him. I don’t want to see anyone be lost to him if I can prevent it. He has not taken away my dream of helping people. I help people now, and I will ALWAYS help people. And he can be as angry as he wants about it, but I will never stop. God’s light is guiding the way. And that’s how it should be, as it is how I serve the Lord!

    what is healing?

    What do you want me to do for you? – Mark 10:46

    The question of “what is healing” is a question that I struggled with for a long time as a believer in Christ.

    My faith has taken me from depressive, suicidal lows to a point where I can blog about my experiences. However, healing looks different for everyone. In this blog entry I hope to share what I believe healing is.

    Healing is a journey

    When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well? – John 5:6

    Healing is a journey with a definite starting point. For most it’s when they hit rock bottom. I know that was my case; my suicide attempt in 2015 opened my eyes and realized that something needed to change. Neither God nor my loving wife wanted me to die; I was meant to live for a greater purpose.

    God did not leave me during the journey. There were twists and turns, valleys and peaks. But all the while He was leading me, one stage at a time. My wife was my greatest support; without her I would have been lost. It was a journey we were determined to make together. And we did indeed make it together. And the best part is He is still with me and guiding me as I continue forward.

    Healing is a process

    He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”). – Mark 5:41

    As I mentioned before, healing looks different for everyone. That’s because everyone processes healing differently. For some, healing means being stable enough to get out of bed and face the day. To others healing is being a functional member of society. Still others will say healing is living out your God-given purpose and thus giving something back.

    All of these are correct, as you will find in the Grace Alliance’s course Living Grace. The key is finding what works best for your recovery. No matter if it’s therapy, a support group, medication, or a combination, God is with you. He wants you to succeed in your recovery process. He promises never to leave you nor forsake you.

    Healing is a transformation

    Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” – Mark 5:19

    No matter what your healing looks like, things will not be the same once you reach that point. Your relationships will improve, you will see God differently, and most importantly you will see yourself differently. My hope is that you will see yourself as God sees you; a being of immesurable value that no illness nor stigma can take away.

    God’s love and mercy are always available to those who ask. I promise you that God is always ready to rain down His graces upon you. God bless you and thanks for reading!

    -Brian

    The Kingdom’s feast

    A reflection by Jack Tomkay While dining at one of the Pharisee’s houses in Luke 14:15 we read: “When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, ‘Blessed is the man who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God.’” An innocuous statement, but what was his […] The post The Kingdom’s feast appeared first on The Behold...

    The Kingdom's feast

    A reflection by Jack Tomkay

    While dining at one of the Pharisee’s houses in Luke 14:15 we read: “When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, ‘Blessed is the man who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God.’”

    An innocuous statement, but what was his point? Was he simply looking to contribute something to the discussion? Socially awkward as I am, I’ve chimed in at a gathering with a thought or an ill-time joke where people glance at me and return to their previous discussion leaving me feeling like a misfit who should be given three crayons and a placemat to color on.

    But this guy must have really felt like something special that he was “worthy” to be included in this banquet.

    His point was spot on. His understanding was way off.

    He concluded that position or status are the basis for the invitation to the “feast in the kingdom of God” (much like the event he was attending).

    Jesus, sets the record straight by pointing out the guest list for the “feast” originally included one group of people (all who bagged out).

    Ultimately, those in attendance at the “feast in the kingdom of God” are comprised of the “poor, crippled, blind, lame” and outsiders. People like you and me who come to Christ with nothing to offer but ourselves and our presence.
