Why Jesus Wept

The shortest verse in the Bible is John 11:35: “Jesus wept.” But for all its grammatical simplicity, it’s packed with unfathomable complexity. Jesus wept after speaking with Lazarus’ grieving sisters, Martha and Mary, and seeing all the mourners. That seems natural enough. Except that Jesus had come to Bethany to raise Lazarus from the dead. He knew that in a few short minutes all this weeping would turn to astonished joy, and then tearful laughter, and then worship. So one would think that Jesus would be a confident, joyful calm in that storm of sorrow. But he was “greatly troubled” (John 11:33) and he wept. Why? Compassion for the Suffering One reason is simply the deep compassion that Jesus felt for those who were suffering. It is true that Jesus let Lazarus die. He delayed coming, and he did not speak healing from a distance like he did for the centurion’s servant (Matthew 8:13). His reasons were good and merciful and glorious. But this did not mean Jesus took the suffering it ca…

Vantage Point: Biblical Marriage & Prayer

Image
article byRandy Stiver
In the words of Sir Winston Churchill: "Where does the family start? It starts with a young man falling in love with a girl—no superior alternative has yet been found."
Source: iStockphoto Has marriage got a prayer? Not a rhetorical question in 2012! Today Bible-defined marriage—and therefore family—suffers a greater attack than at any time in at least America's history. As I write this, traditional marriage has just been catapulted into a gigantic campaign issue in this year's U.S. presidential election. Bible prophecy has always foretold divine punishment for America or any nation persisting in sexual immorality, especially at an institutional level. While gay marriage is considered by many to be a political issue, it is much broader—being in fact a moral andspiritual uissue. Sadly, its rise was only to be expected given society's plummet into godless thinking. Ultimately, everything in human life comes down to two great questions: Does G…

“THE BIBLICAL VIEW OF HOMOSEXUALITY”

(This article was originally printed in January, 2008)
“For this cause God gave them up unto  vile affections:  for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet” (Rom . 1:26-27).
After reading a vast variety of emails, articles, news clips, etc., I feel strongly impressed by the Holy Spirit to address the very delicate and controversial issue of homosexuality, not only homosexuality as society knows it to be, but God’s Biblical standard concerning it. I do not wish to speak from standards of my own making here nor the ethical standards of our modern culture, but from the standards of a Holy God who has asked me to reach out to all who will hear Him concerning this very critical issue of our time. I hope to make it clear to you how …

Point of Wisdom: Pray With a Psalm in Your Heart

Image
It can sometimes be hard to know what to talk about with God in prayer. Some Scripture-based counsel to a struggling individual can help you too. Source: Photos.com He described himself to the pastor and me as a former hippie who had been off the drugs for several years. But he and his wife explained that the hallucinogens' effects were still badly slowing his mental processes. We could see that from our conversation. My part was as a ministerial trainee participating in this pastoral visit with a young couple who had lived hard and wild during the hippie movement years of the 1960s. The man now loaded freight on ships in the Thames River near London. He had muscles for the work but wished that he still had the muscle in his mind. She had many questions about the Bible and God's way, but one main question plagued his thoughts: " How do I pray? I can't think of much to say. " There were tears in his eyes. He really, truly wanted to know how to talk to God.

No Halfway Covenant

article by Frank Dunkle

If your parents are true Christians, does that make you one? Or is more required of you? This was an important question for the Puritans of early America. And it remains an important issue today. Source: George Henry Boughton, Pilgrims Going to Church, 1867 Are you a true Christian? Do you need to join a church to be one? Does your parents' relationship with God make a difference in your own relationship with Him? To explore this, let's first consider an interesting piece of early American history. In the mid-1600s, several ministers in New England held a special conference to discuss youth and the church. They developed a doctrine called the "Half-Way Covenant." We'll briefly examine this concept in addressing a vital issue for today. Just what makes a person a true Christian? Are the children of true Christians automatically true Christians also—or is more required? Puritans purifyTo understand the Half-Way Covenant and why it matters to us, w…

Jesus Christ biography

Synopsis Jesus Christ was born in 2-6 BCE in Bethlehem, Judea. Little is known about his early life, but as a young man, he founded Christianity, one of the world’s most influential religions. His life is recorded in the New Testament, more a theological document than a biography. According to Christians, Jesus is considered the incarnation of God and his teachings an example for living a more spiritual life. Christians believe he died for the sins of all people and rose from the dead. Profile Most of Jesus’ life is told through the four Gospels of the New Testament Bible, known as the Canonical gospels, written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These are not biographies in the modern sense but accounts with allegorical intent. They are written to engender faith in Jesus as the Messiah and the incarnation of God, who came to teach, suffer and die for people’s sins. Jesus was born between 2 and 6 BCE, in Bethlehem, Judea. His mother, Mary, was a virgin who was betrothed to Joseph, a carpent…

Yesu alibadilisha mwenendo wa historia

Tembea sehemu yoyote ulimwenguni. Ongea na watu wa dini yoyote. Haijalishi jinsi walivyoshikilia tabaka za dini zao, kama wanajua chochote kuhusu historia, watakubali kwamba hakujawahi kuwa na mtu kama Yesu wa Nazareti. Yeye ni mtu wa ajabu mno kuliko watu wote wa enzi zote.

Yesu alibadilisha mwenendo wa historia. Hata tarehe kwenye gazeti lako la leo inathibitisha kwamba Yesu wa Nazareti aliishi ulimwenguni karibu miaka 2,000 iliyopita. Maandishi kwa Kiingereza "B.C." yanasimamia nyakati kabla ya kuzaliwa kwa Kristo; vilevile maandishi "A.D." yanasimamia nyakati baada ya kuzaliwa kwa Kristo.KUJA KWAKE KULITABIRIWA

Mamia ya miaka hata kabla ya Yesu kuzaliwa, maandiko yaonyesha wanabii wa Israeli wakitabiri kuja kwake. Agano la kale, lililoandikwa na watu wengi katika muda wa miaka 1,500, lina unabii zaidi ya 300 kuhusu kuja kwa Yesu. Yote yaliyotabiriwa yalitendeka, pamoja na kuzaliwa kwake kimiujiza, maisha yake matakatifu, kufa na kufufuka kwake.

Maisha aliyoishi Ye…
