Marlene's Ministry Corner - The Nativity

Marlene's Ministry Corner

The story of our Savior's birth is one of the most awesome one ever. It is one that is denied by some due to the virgin Mary's miraculous conception through the holy spirit of the Christ child. When he arrived into the world in the flesh undergoing great suffering and dying for our sins he provided us with salvation from sins. By truly accepting and believing that he willingly laid down his life for us, and that through him we are redeemed is the assurance that we are  saved.

Remember that Jesus is the reason for the season!!!

Educational perspectives regarding security, diversity and religion

Multicultural issues of diversity and religion is an area that we all need to be aware of. The increasing communication across diverse cultural and ethnic boundaries to eradicate stereotypes, to stop polarization, to end hostility and distrust, and to find a common ground for leading to conclusive goals is what we all should strive to reach. It all should boil-down to personal courtesy and understanding of the human race and its many cultural backgrounds. Let us all start by focusing on the problems that individuals from diverse ethnic and cultural differences face. I think that this video manages to encapsulate it all pretty well.

Marlene's Ministry Corner - Oh Holy Child!

Marlene's Ministry Corner

From the gospel of Matthew we have a message so empowering that most find it too difficult to believe. Nevertheless true believers rejoice in it and can give this as a gift to their children and grandchildren. What better gift then the story of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There is a sense of great awe each time we hear it because of the mystery of the immaculate conception of the virgin Mary. Lets be inspired through this message in the gospel of Matthew.

Matthew 1: 18-25
       This is how the birth of Jesus manifest: Mary his mother was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her privately.

       But after he had considered this, an angel of the  Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins."

       All this too place to fulfill what the Lord had said through his prophet. The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel --which means, "God with us."

      When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord commanded and took Mary home with him as his wife. But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

Signs of the end times from a Biblical perspective.....

Marlene's Ministry Corner

Matthew 24: 36 - 42 (Our Lord said)
      No one knows about that day or hour not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken the other left.
        Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.

How have you prepared for the coming of our Lord? Are you living from day to day being vigilant and righteous. Do you have on the full-armor of God? Or do you just discount the fore warning of the end times going about your day secure that it is just a rumor or made up to entice people to come under the authority of God through the Son. This video is a very effective one and one that we all should adhere to. Matt. 24: 43 - 44/ But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Peace & Love to all

Marlene's Ministry Corner - Is there real evidence about the Spirit?

Marlene's Ministry Corner

Is there true evidence that an individual truly has the holy spirit?

Listen to what it says in the chapter of St. Luke:

And Jesus read from the scroll of the prophet Isaiah:

        'The spirit of the Lord is on me,
         because he has anointed me
         to preach the good news to the poor.
  He has sent me to proclaim freedom
             for the prisoners
     and recovery of sight for the blind,
  to release the oppressed,
      to proclaim the year of the Lord's
_________St. Luke 4: 18 - 19

Paul the apostle stated this about the Spirit in the 5th chapter of Galatians:

_____Galatian 5: 16 - 18
             So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
         For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is
      contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do
      what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.

_____Galatian 5: 22 - 26
      But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,    faithfulness, gentleness and  self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to
Christ Jesus crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us
keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited , provoking and envying each other.

Giving all praise, honor and glory to Christ Jesus!

Marlene' Ministry Corner - The Metaphysical Self

Marlene's Ministry Corner

This is a very powerful documentary regarding metaphysics. It can literally change the entire way that you think about things. To be effective in the idea of metaphysics, " you must unlearn what you have learned." The indoctrination of religion or tradition keeps us in the state of being that we have chosen for ourselves.

After the video try this exercise:

Choose something you would like to manifest in your life. It does not have to be major, just pick something you would enjoy, that would not be a stretch to achieve. Focus on it, allow yourself to 'feel' good about having it, then let it go. In a few days it should be made manifest in your life. Begin your search for it now!

Having a Good Prayer Life!

Marlene's Ministry Corner

One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him. "Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples."
       Jesus said to them, "When you pray, say:

    " 'Father,"
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    Give us each day, our daily bread,
    Forgive us our sins,
         for we also forgive everyone who
                  sins against us
    And lead us not into temptation.
_____Lu. 11: 1-4

This is a prayer that most of us grew up with and have it deeply etched into our hearts. We have come to know that the books of the gospel; Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John each has its own version of this prayer. What this does is allow us to come to a more complete understanding of the "Lord's" prayer. Upon hearing this prayer in church  and other places of worship we learned to formulate our own versions of praying  by extending this and the prayers of our family members, preachers, deacons or from the Christians we came to revere. As prayer took on a more personal meaning for us in our spiritual growth we learned to include our thanksgivings for our daily needs, health and strength of selves', protection from the evil one and a request for our guardian angels protection  for family members, etc. As we mature in our prayer life we come to know God on a very personal level understanding that he is the only one that we can go to through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to seek and get the answers to our problems. Do you know that you are totally involved in getting your needs met. When you pray, nothing waivered is the key, relinquish all to God. Knowing this we become more and more confident in a God that will not fail us. A God who is all encompassing and truly knows us better then anyone else.

All that I ask is that you follow your heart giving yourself completely to God through the Savior by your provision of your daily prayer and you will be blessed beyond measure,  Amen!
