One of the questions we were asked that tuesday a week ago, was if we had some sort of support group because of the things we see and have to go through at the hospital, Robert Reid. While I immediately thought well no our support group is God, He sustains us and helps us bear the burden, I kept thinking about it a lot and the thought of a support group began to sound appealing. More so in my case because I've been seeing people whom I've come to cherish die in front of me since I started going to the hospitals, but I realized that always always the Lord has been my strength. Then today I read one of my favorite passages from Isaiah and realized what better therapy or cure than God's amazing Word He has left us, and His Holy Spirit who dwells in us to help us bear such burdens.

"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
Isaiah 40:28-31

Amen! What an amazing God the Lord is!
And when we think about this in light of the Gospel it is even more amazing, how blessed we are and how we are blessed daily by the Lord being so undeserving of such Grace!
Thank you Lord Jesus!

Grace Gems: Work for God's Eye

Work for God's eye

(J. R. Miller, "In Green Pastures")

"Be careful not to do your 'acts of righteousness'
before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you
will have no reward from your Father in heaven."
Matthew 6:1

No grace shines more brightly in a Christian,
than humility. Wherever SELF comes in--it
mars the beauty of the work we are doing.
Seek to do your work noiselessly. Do not try
to draw attention to yourself--to make others
know that you did some beautiful thing. Be
content to pour your rich life into other wasted,
weary lives--and see them blessed and made
more holy--and then hide away and let Christ
have the honor. Work for God's eye--and even
then, do not think much about reward. Seek to
be a blessing--and never think of self-glory.

"Then your Father, who sees what is done
in secret, will reward you." Matthew 6:4

Prayer Request

If there is a powerful tool the Lord has left us, that changes a person, it edifies, it connects us to the Lord, connects us to others, it brings us to our knees, it brings us closer to God, through it the Lord heals, through it the Lord transforms, through it the Lord delivers, it is prayer.
In the OT we are given so many examples of God's faithfulness to answer the prayers of a faithful servant, Moses. We are told in God's word to:
1. Confess our sins to one another
2. Pray for another, that we may be healed.
And finally are told that:
3. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. (and we see this come true all through out the OT and NT)
* James 5:16
Well now I urge you brethren to join me and so many others in prayer for a faithful brother in Christ who is going through some health issues, Jim Bublitz from Old Truth, here's part his closing message from his website:

I have, as of late experienced some medical problems that make it impossible for me to continue blogging at this time. I recently learned that I have "Non Alcoholic Cirrhosis of the Liver" which will require a liver transplant in order to survive beyond the next several years. For the past month I've spent a double-digit number of hours per day sleeping and have lost over 60 pounds in water retention. As some of you know, I've also been battling broken bones this last year, several of which are still giving me some problems.

Through all of this, my family and church in Milwaukee have been incredibly supportive, and I'd like to thank them all. A special thanks goes out to Chad who has not only helped me with blogging through the months, but has also been a loyal friend and brother in the Lord. I am looking to the Lord through all of this and know that he has good that comes from these things (Romans 8:28). I'm at a loss as to how unbelievers are able to make it through these types of things without looking to the Lord for strength.

I would love to return to blogging one day, perhaps after I receive a transplant, but that may be months or even a couple of years. For right now, I've been told to expect to get more sick as the months go on, so needless to say - I have some big challenges ahead of me.

Please pray for Jim and his family, that they may be strengthened through this hard time in their lives, that they may be encouraged through this, that the Lord may heal him, and that contrary to what the doctors have told him about feeling worse that the Lord may delay or stop those symptoms that are to come.

Sony Ericksson Ad

This is not a usual post I just thought i'd add it anyway for some giggles...if you ever wanted a chance to see me look like a dork here's the chance..our youth leader is a publicist and so a few weeks ago we all went to the movies, he had invited us and had told us that he'd get us a discount for the premier of Narnia II. Anyways we get to the movie theater and we already have reserved seats up front not knowing that soon after we would be totally spoofed!
Without further adieu, the video:

He was behind the whole thing, he works for sony ericksson and that day they were recording all these spoofs all over town. Afterward he had to go to Bella Vista Mall to do the same thing, he invited us again, here's the video:

Fellowship, Missions and Stonecrest

Where to begin.
This week has been amazing, encouraging, edifying...I'm at a loss for words (adjectives really). Last Friday my phone rang while at the ER of the Hospital Padre Billini during my shift, it was Flora. She had called to remind me that Don and the gang where coming back to Robert Reid and that I should be there Sunday at 3:00pm sharp. She was actually wondering if I remembered, I had it written down already in my calendar since last they were here, Don insisted we both be there and I wouldn't have missed it for the world. A chance to go witnessing and share the love of Christ with children who get the exact opposite, who would pass on such an opportunity?.
So Sunday morning I went to church, afterwards spent some time with my mom, and finally the time had come to head to the hospital. Around 3:30-45pm we meet up with the gang, a group of 57 people lead by Don Coords, and other leaders such as Tom Mckenna and his wife Debbie, Tania, Juan Velasco his wife Lynn, Janet, John and others. We split up into group as we are accustomed to, and each group had 2 translators, there were 5 groups.
My group was composed of Pastor Tom, Debbie, Juan, John, Tom and Debbie's sons, and I, we got to go to the Pre-Surgical and head trauma floor.

"Armed with a bag of goodies and hand puppets, we stopped at every bed and told each child and their parents of God's love for them. We also prayed. We prayed for healing, we prayed for comfort, and we prayed for their families" - Thomas Mckenna

As always there were some more delicate patients who I know for sure will not make it, and its always so heartbreaking but I know the Lord is in control, and that even in those situations He is glorified.
After the day was over Don invited us (Flora, Marysel, Marisol and I) over to dinner at the Lina, we accepted his kind offer. I was so glad to see everyone there, its a joy when you get to felloswhip with brothers and sister in Christ from other parts of the world. We had a wonderful time talking about our experience at the hospital that Sunday and about what they've been doing in Catalina. When we finished having our meal Don invited us over to their after-dinner meeting they usually have each day. We accepted as well although it was getting rather late.
I was overwhelmed with the kindness and attention they had given us, its amazing how the love of Christ and the love for Christ and His cause joins peoples from different nationalities and tongues. In light of that Marysel stood in front of us and sang a few familiar songs, two of them in english. It was a lovely worship time in thankfulness to our Lord for His abounding Grace and Love.
Afterwards we had a Q and A moment, talked about some of the patients, the situation with the hospital, the ministry Flora leads, our Church and how Don and Flora met and eventually both ministries came together. It was an edifying moment, for me it was great to learn how the Lord orchestrates His plans and blesses those that are walking in His ways.
Sadly the night came to an end, many hugs and kisses were shared, numbers and emails were exchanged to keep in contact.
I was touched deeply by this experience, all I could think was "Lord thank you for allowing me to be a part of this", I'm so unworthy of all the grace He has bestowed upon me and yet He has given me the privilege to work for His cause for His glory, by being a part of the ministry Flora leads and by playing a small part in Don's missionary ministry and the gang at Stonecrest.
I was awestruck as well by how much love can sprout in such little time for such wonderful people. My prayer is that the Lord may continue to be glorified through all of us, that the kingdom may be forwarded and that the Gospel may continue to be proclaimed!

In Christ,
Rita M.

Reading Classics RAL - Religious Affections by Jonathan Edwards

Yesterday we began with the Reading Classics Together RAL (Read-along), the book chosen for this round is Jonathan Edward's Treatise on The Religious Affections. The assigned reading for yesterday was the preface of the book. I found the preface to be very meaty actually. Edwards really emphasizes on discerning true religion from false religion and explains in details the way Satan causes strife among the Church and the consequences of the lack of discernment. I couldn't agree more with Edwards, and more so because of what I've seen and read about the things happening during these times in the Church.
Edwards says that the greatest danger is having a mixture of false religion and true religion because we are deceived into thinking that what we are doing, what we offer God, is pleasing to Him when in fact it is abominable and people as well are deceived into thinking they are saved when truly they are not. So basically it all boils down to that, discernment. I have been discussing the very same thing with one of the doctors at the hospital I'm currently at, who has recently been revived by God's word after such a long period of starvation partly because of the church he attends.

All in all, it was a great read, I absolutely loved it. Its not an easy read, at least not for me, because it is written in English from those times, if you know what I mean. So I did have to re-read the preface but to my delight.
Here is my little outline of what I got from the preface:

In the first paragraph Edwards poses three questions(well two of those questions are basically the same only posed differently):
1. “What are the distinguishing qualifications of those that are in favor with God, and entitled to his eternal rewards? Or, which comes to the same thing,
2. What is the nature of true religion?
3. And wherein do lie the distinguishing notes of that virtue and holiness that is acceptable in the sight of God?”

Then he basically explains why these questions need to be answered. The importance of knowing the difference b/n True Religion and False Religion. As someone explained, since there were great “revivals” going on back in the day it is important to discern if such revivals were an act of God, or if they were Satan’s way of causing division among the brethren. Because amidst these revivals much false religion prevailed and multitudes of hypocrites sprung up among true saints.

He describes the way Satan has caused strife, damage and division in the Church:
By the mixture of Counterfeit religion with true, not discerned and distinguished is that the devil has:
- Prevailed against all revivings of religion.
- Hurt the cause of Christianity (even more than by all the persecutions of both Jews and Heathens)
- Prevailed against New England, to quench the love and spoil the joy of her spousals.
And says that it will continue to be that way in the Church until we learn to discern between true and false religion, between saving affections and experiences. He says than when these revivals occur and we don’t distinguish between true and false religion, between saving affections and experiences:
The devil is gratified by making us think that the way these revivals occur, that what we are doing is pleasing and acceptable to God when in fact it is abominable to Him. And so it is that the devil deceives many about the state of their souls, making them think they’re saved when they are not.
And finally describes the consequence of said lack of discernment, the devil:
- Damps and wounds religion in the hearts of the saints, obscures and deforms it.
- Causes their religious affections woefully to degenerate, and to be like the manna that bred worms and stank; and dreadfully ensnares and confounds the minds of others of the saints and brings them into great difficulties and temptation,
- He encourages the hearts of open enemies of religion, and strengthens their hands, and fills them with weapons, and makes strong their fortresses; when, at the same time, religion and the church of God lie exposed to them, as a city without walls.
- he brings it to pass, that men work wickedness under a notion of doing God service, and so sin without restraint.
- he brings in even the friends of religion, insensibly to themselves, to do the work of enemies, by destroying religion in a far more effectual manner than open enemies can do, under a notion of advancing it.
The worst consequence of it all is that the devil manages to scatter the flock of Christ, and sets them one against another, and in this way religion, “by degrees degenerates into vain jangling; and during the strife, Satan leads both parties far out of the right way, driving each to great extremes, according as he finds they are most inclined, or most easily moved and swayed, till the right path in the middle is almost wholly neglected.”
If there would be a keyword to describe the introduction, the keyword would be discernment, as someone else mentioned in one of their post I believe. The importance of discernment would be the theme. At least that’s what I understood from what I read and re-read in the introduction.

TAGGED! - 7 Random Facts

Well I've been tagged, yay! By my friend and sister in Christ Jennifer from Reformed SHEology.
Sadly I can't tag 7 people back so whoever wants to do the tag thing either by commenting or doing it on your own blog feel free to do so! These are the rules: Post seven random things about you that others might not know and tag 7 people back. So here goes:

1. I Like Making Lists of Everything: prayer list, list of clothes I take when I travel, lists of things I'm planning on buying, lists of books I'm reading, I'll read a chapter in any book in the bible and will make a list of things I understood from it, a list of what I'll eat during the day, etc

2. I love to sing. I sang in front of over 3,000 people (during flag ceremony in high school) with my friend Susie, yet I will not sing in front you even if you're my best friend on this earth.

3. I once waited for hours in a movie set right here in the Dominican Republic to catch a glimpse of the actors starring in the movie being filmed (The Good Shepherd), Angelina Jolie, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt and Robert Deniro. The Outcome? I took a picture with Matt Damon, saw Angelina Jolie up close, never saw Brad Pitt and Robert Deniro waved back at me. Did this change me in any way? heck no but it was pretty cool that I didn't even have to leave my country to catch a glimpse of these people.
During that same time I also met, Jaime Foxx. The weirdest yet hilarious movie star encounter ever. My mom and I were out shopping, while I was in the dressing room trying on some clothes my mom was outside advicing Mr. Foxx not to buy a skirt he was going to buy for his mom I guess (bear in mind that this was all through some sort of hand waving sign language because my mom cannot speak an ounce of english) As I exited the dressing room I saw this tall dark man that looked like Jaime Foxx and I thought hmmm maybe I should walk up to him and tell him he looks like that tv actor Jaime Foxx. So I did, he replied..."I am Jaime Foxx". I had him sign me an autograph which by now i've probably misplaced.

4. I love to read, a LOT, but it never ever crossed my mind that the one book I'd have such a passion for would be the same book over 3 years ago I had said was filled with mistakes and shouldn't be considered. The Bible.

5. I love to learn new things but I hate instruction manuals I never read them. I get these random ideas of things I'd like to learn and with a little help of the Internet I end up learning. Thats how I learned to knit, to use photoshop, I was even learning hebrew that way but had to drop it because I didn't have time.

6. Before I wanted to be a doctor I wanted to be a veterinarian. My parents to test me I guess got me a job at the local Vet's office and for 2 weeks I worked there I even saw a surgery done on a female dog! It was amazing. What made me change my mind? a puppy I had was poisoned with rat poisoning, I took him to the Vet's office at like 2am he was having seizures and ultimately died, the poison was too strong and he was too young, barely two months old. I was too sad and decided I couldn't take watching any more puppies die. Of course I had never seen a person die, and much less a child. These are things that truly change a person forever.

7. I can't get enough of card games (not the ones you bet on) especially Solitaire and one called vietnam. During my senior year in high school our English Lit teacher Mr. Fischer, taught me, Omar and Susie how to play Vietnam. We spent that entire year playing at every chance we got.

Grace Gems: All the afflictions of God's people

All the afflictions of God's people

(John Fawcett, "Christ Precious")

"We also rejoice in our afflictions, because we know that affliction produces endurance, endurance produces proven character, and proven character produces hope." Romans 5:3-4

The chastisements of Christ are precious to those who believe. The believer's love to Jesus Christ, not only continues under the rod of correction—but is quickened and increased by it! Thus it is distinguished from that pretended love, which exists only in times of prosperity. The afflicted Christian is enabled to consider--that whom the Lord loves--He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives; and that He only afflicts us for our profit--to make us partakers of His holiness.

The Lord can so manifest Himself to His afflicted people--that the season of affliction shall be to them a season of great consolation. He is to them--a fountain of life, of strength, of grace and comfort in the afflictive hour--and of His fullness they receive, as their necessities require. The Lord Jesus Christ is a sun to enlighten and cheer His afflicted followers, and a shield to defend them. He is a hiding-place from the storm, a covert from the tempest, and as the shadow of a great rock in a dry and weary land.

All the afflictions of God's people are designed, under His gracious management--to test, to make manifest, and to exercise, those graces and virtues which He has implanted in them. Though afflictions in themselves are not joyous but grievous, nevertheless they yield the peaceable fruits of righteousness in those who are exercised thereby. Afflictions serve to quicken the spirit of devotion in us; and to rouse us from that formality and indifference which frequently attend a long course of ease and prosperity. We are constrained to seek God with sincerity and fervor, when His chastening hand is upon us, since we then feel our absolute need of that help and deliverance, which He alone can give us.

When the loss of any temporal enjoyment casts us into excessive despondency and dejection--it is evident that what we have lost, was the object of our inordinate love. The most innocent attachments cease to be innocent, when they press too strongly upon us! To cleave to any created object, and to look for happiness from it--is to make an idol of it--and set it up in God's place. Should this object be a friend, a brother, a wife, or a child--the idolatry is still odious in the eyes of that God, to whom we owe our chief affection. Our warmest passions, our most fervent love, desires, hopes, and confidences--should always have God for their object. It is His desire that our happiness should not center in any of the good things of this life.

Losses and disappointments--are the trials of our faith, our patience, and our obedience. When we are in the midst of prosperity, it is difficult to know whether we have a love for the Benefactor--or only for His benefits. It is in the midst of adversity--that our piety is put to the trial.

Afflictions serve most effectually--to convince us of the vanity of all that this world can afford--to remind us that this is not our rest--and to stir up desires and hopes for our everlasting home. They produce in us a spirit of sympathy towards our companions in tribulation. They give occasion for the exercise of patience, meekness, submission, and resignation. Were it not for the wholesome and necessary discipline of affliction--these excellent virtues would lie dormant. Afflictions serve to convince us more deeply of our own weakness and insufficiency, and to endear the person, the grace, the promises, and the salvation of our Redeemer, more and more to our hearts. Thus we are taught to esteem His very chastisements as precious--on account of the benefits we derive from them.

Afflictions are not to punish--but to purify the believing soul. They are not in wrath--but in mercy. Amidst the distresses and miseries of life--it is a felicity to belong to Christ, without whose permission and appointment, no evil can befall us! He always sends afflictions for our good; and knows by experience, what it is to suffer them. His kind hand will speedily put a end to all the pains we feel--when we have derived from them all the good which He intends to do for us, by them.

How many, how suitable, how sovereign are the supports our heavenly Father affords to His afflicted children! They make the affliction, which in itself would seem heavy and tedious--appear to be light, and but for a moment. It is happier to be in the furnace of affliction with these supports--than to be in the highest prosperity without them! Blessed with the hopes and comforts of Christ--the true Christian would prefer the lot of Lazarus, with all the poverty and distress which he endured--to the lot of the rich man, who, amidst all the splendor and affluence which this world could afford--lived a life of alienation from God, and destitute of the sovereign supports which can only be enjoyed, by those who love and fear Him.

A Fearful Thing

Need to cringe for a second or two? Or maybe be terrified and/or annoyed for a paragraph or two?
A sister in Christ sent me a couple of articles from the Pulpit Magazine about a visit to Mars Hill. The writer, Nathan Williams, describes the whole event from the moment he entered the church to the worship time, to what the Sunday sermon was about. Taking in consideration that Mars Hill is pastored by Rob Bell of the emergent/emerging(?) church movement. Here are some excerpts:

"The teachers for the morning were Don Perini and Jeanette Banashak. Both serve as professors at nearby Cornerstone University...These two were specifically asked to speak on creativity because it is one of their specialties. They announce a couple of times during the message that they will be teaching a multi part class in the coming months at Mars Hill on creativity."

"The dual teaching method creates an interesting dynamic. One person sits on a stool on stage while the other does his (or her) teaching..."

"The title for the message the morning I was there was “A Journey to Unleash Your Creative Potential.”"

"Don began the morning by lamenting the fact that as we grow older we tend to play less games and tend to be less creative. The busyness of life creeps in and we no longer take the time to play and imagine. Once Don finishes his introduction, Jeanette asks us to open to Matthew 28 and take a look at the great commission. She reminds us that we are supposed to be making disciples and baptizing in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. She makes the connection between the Trinity and the discipleship commanded in the great commission."

"...She noted that the first verb in the Bible is to create and that obviously our God is a creative God. Since Genesis 1:26 tells us that we are made in the image of God, we must learn to be creative like God is creative. Then she explained that since God is a Trinity the Trinity must hold some clues as to how God is creative and therefore how we should be creative."

"The entire message was based on the idea that every bit of human creativity resembles the Trinity. The creative idea we have is like God the Father, the action that we perform because of that idea is like the Son, and the influence and power of that creative idea is like the Holy Spirit."

"...after Jeanette taught on the idea of creativity and that being analogous to God the Father, Dan taught on the top ten places for creative ideas to come to us. After the section dealing with Jesus and the creative idea being put into action, Dan taught on several habits of creative people."

"The ultimate point of the message was for us to learn to be creative and then use that creativity for something useful. The Sayers quote which they kept using throughout the lesson was “…that we may redeem the Fall by a creative act.” "

"The point of the message was that we can use our creativity to redeem the fall. In other words, our world is in a rough situation. All of the pain and hardship in society comes as a result of the fall. We must use our creativity to fix the problems created by mankind’s fall into sin.""
"Sadly, throughout the message there was no mention of the gospel of Jesus Christ being what redeems men from the fall."
Ugh to twist Scripture like that!!! We can use our creativity to redeem the fall!??? JESUS CHRIST, the HOLY SON of GOD had to DIE on a Cross, BEAR OUR NASTY HORRIBLE STINKY SINS AND drink in God's WRATH, He was HUMILIATED, SPAT ON, TORTURED, BEATEN and CRUCIFIED so that we PUNY exceedingly sinful men and women could be redeemed, so we could be justified before the Lord. He got what WE DESERVE. And these people have the guts to even utter those words that with our filthy rags of good "creative" works we can redeem the fall?? Talk about spitting on the Blood of Christ and trampling on His work on the cross.
I'm sorry I just get a little annoyed at things like these, please pray for these people who received this teaching. And pray for me as well!

Fear of Man - Part 2

I've been struggling with fear of man for quite some time now, but I've found out that there are some people, situations and/or things that are said that can inhibit said fear and let the Holy Spirit fill me with boldness to preach the Gospel to whomever, including family.
This happened last weekend at my dad's friend's home. They were having a goodbye/birthday dinner, they as in my dad's tennis players life-long friends (at least 6 of them out of a group of over 10 men) and atheists apparently. There was still one friend that had not arrived and one of the guys seized the opportunity to mock the fact that he is now a Christian, saying that he hadn't arrived cause his pastor had not given him permission to hang out with them. For some reason I felt so offended and in various occasions asked Mr. Mocker politely to stop mocking him, then one thing led to another and before I knew it one of the men, one who had been living in the US for quite some time (and the birthday boy that night), said "I don't think we are all that bad to be condemned by any religion" O the evangelist in me pushed away that fear of man and seized that beautifully phrased proclamation of man's goodness.
I took all them through the 10 commandments, all were guilty duh!, and explained that the Bible says that if you break but one of them you are guilty of breaking them all, and that we are condemned to hell unless we repent and put our faith in the Saviour Jesus Christ. Unsurprisingly Mr. Birthdayboy tried to defend himself by saying that the Bible was written by men and thus filled with mistakes and that because of this it couldn't be trusted, I replied back with a question "Have you read the Bible entirely?" obviously he hadn't, so I told him that it was ignorant of him to say such a thing. Then he and Mr. Mocker jumped unto the evolution vs. creation topic asking how on earth I could believe in creation being a medical student, funny thing is most evolution defenders who aren't scientist cannot mention one fossil or one piece of evidence to back their claim. The conversation soon ended but with a promise to continue at a future time.
The only one there that wasn't an atheist was Mr. Agnostic who sat beside me, when the conversation wined down he turned to me and said "I believe in God, just not the God of the Bible" I replied that what he was doing was idolatry conforming a god to suit himself a god he's comfortable with and while he disagreed about committing idolatry he agreed that this god he prayed to every night was one he was comfortable with.
While it saddens me that these people whom are dear to me didn't repent that night and so continue to live their sinful lives, I was glad to be able to preach the gospel yet again to my dad. Father's day is coming up soon, I plan to get him a fishing rod, he went on a fishing trip with some family friends a couple of months ago and came back like a kid with a new toy telling me how me and him are going to go fishing and how he plans to buy a boat. I pray to the Lord that I may be able to once more push aside this disease called fear of man and let the Holy Spirit do His work and use this opportunity to be a real fisher of man and preach the gospel to my dad for the third and fourth and fifth time during our fishing trips.

Until Next Time,

Time for a Change

After much thought, consideration and prayer, I've decided to cut my internet/blogging days to thursdays(For Challies' Reading Classics Together, read-along), fridays and saturdays due to some adjustments I need to make. So new posts probably will be up on saturdays, and the rest of the week, except for thursdays, I won't even be using the computer. Hopefully this will do me good, it'll work out for God's glory, and will be edifying for me in many ways.

Till next time,

God is Enough

"Eliot was born with an undeveloped lung, a heart with a hole in it and DNA that placed faulty information into each and every cell of his body. However, that could not stop the living God from proclaiming Himself through this boy who never uttered a word."
