“All po­wer is gi­ven un­to me in he­a­ven and in earth”

Vieraskieliset / In-english2.4.2014 0.00

Je­sus gave the dis­cip­les a mis­si­on task to bring the gos­pel’s mes­sa­ge of joy to all na­ti­ons. We can still be brin­ging forth this re­dee­ming mes­sa­ge through the po­wer of the Holy Spi­rit.

Edi­to­ri­al: God opens His sal­va­ti­on through His word

Vieraskieliset / In-english2.4.2014 0.00

The mot­to for the Pu­das­jär­vi Sum­mer Ser­vi­ces quo­ted words spo­ken to Je­sus by Tho­mas, his dis­cip­le: “My Lord and my God”. When doub­ting Tho­mas saw the wounds in the Sa­vi­our’s hands, his ey­es ope­ned to see the re­demp­ti­on pre­pa­red by God. Je­sus’ res­pon­se ref­lects the es­sen­ce of faith: “Be­cau­se you have seen me, you have be­lie­ved; bles­sed are those who have not seen and yet have be­lie­ved.” (John 20:29).

The gre­a­test in the king­dom of he­a­ven

Vieraskieliset / In-english20.11.2013 15.21

Je­sus had told his dis­cip­les for the first time about the great suf­fe­ring that was awai­ting him. He would have to go to Je­ru­sa­lem and suf­fer hor­rib­ly in the hands of the el­ders, high priests, and la­wy­ers. He would be kil­led, but on the third day he would rise from the dead. Je­sus’ words made the dis­cip­les sad. It seems stran­ge that, soon af­ter this, the dis­cip­les as­ked Je­sus: ”Who is the gre­a­test in the king­dom of he­a­ven?”

God’s will to­ward man is good

Vieraskieliset / In-english20.11.2013 15.19

The old Chris­ti­an Doct­ri­ne says in ac­cor­dan­ce with the Bib­le: ”God, who has cre­a­ted us, has inst­ruc­ted us to obey his will in our li­ves. God has made his holy will known to us in his law. God’s law re­qui­res us to be truth­ful, righ­te­ous, and pure in thoughts, words, and deeds.” God’s good will is the law of life, me­ant to pro­tect the life cre­a­ted by him and all things that are holy and pre­ci­ous in it. God wants all pe­op­le to pos­sess eter­nal life.

God ma­ni­fests Him­self

Vieraskieliset / In-english20.11.2013 15.17

Man has ne­ver been ab­le to re­ach God and His gre­at­ness through his own un­ders­tan­ding. The Old Tes­ta­ment prop­het Isai­ah wri­tes:”Ve­ri­ly thou art a God that hi­dest thy­self, O God of Is­ra­el, the Sa­vi­our” (Isai­ah 45:15). Isai­ah al­so wri­tes: “For my thoughts are not yo­ur thoughts, neit­her are yo­ur ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the he­a­vens are hig­her than the earth, so are my ways hig­her than yo­ur ways, and my thoughts than yo­ur thoughts” (Isai­ah 55:8–9).

The Triu­ne God

Vieraskieliset / In-english20.11.2013 15.15

The Bib­le is the book of sal­va­ti­on, and it’s cent­ral mes­sa­ge is the proc­la­ma­ti­on of Je­sus Christ and the re­demp­ti­on pre­pa­red by Him. The Bib­le al­so tel­ls what God is like and how He works.

I have fought the good fight

Vieraskieliset / In-english20.11.2013 15.13

Apost­le Paul was fa­mi­li­ar with the con­tem­po­ra­ry cul­tu­re and the va­lue that was pla­ced on sport. Sin­ce he knew that no­ti­ons of com­pe­ti­ti­on were pre­va­lent in pe­op­le’s thoughts, he of­ten com­pa­red the life of a Chris­ti­an to the run­ning of a race. He al­so wan­ted to show that the sig­ni­fi­can­ce and des­ti­na­ti­on of the en­de­a­vor in faith are much gre­a­ter than any at­tain­ment of tem­po­ral go­als.

God, Cre­a­tor of the world

Vieraskieliset / In-english20.11.2013 15.10

Ac­cor­ding to the Apos­to­lic Creed, God is the Cre­a­tor of the he­a­ven and the earth. The first ver­se of the Bib­le exp­res­ses this simp­ly and cle­ar­ly: ”In the be­gin­ning God cre­a­ted the he­a­ven and the earth” (Gen. 1:1).

Edi­to­ri­al: Faith is God’s gift

Vieraskieliset / In-english6.11.2013 14.58

Ac­cor­ding to Je­sus’ te­ac­hing, child­ren be­lie­ve in him. God gi­ves each child who is born in­to this world the gift of faith (Matt. 18:6). If a per­son does not have the op­por­tu­ni­ty to hear and be­lie­ve the gos­pel of the for­gi­ve­ness of sins, sin ta­kes over his he­art and he fal­ls away from the king­dom of God (Ef. 2:1). There are many pe­op­le in this world who live in un­be­lief, the king­dom of the wic­ked (Matt 13:38).
