KEEP ME JESUS, KEEP ME!
Psalm 16:1-11
Why are we so comfortable in this life of sin, sorrow, tribulation, and shut downs?
We assemble ourselves often as scripture says: Hebrews 10:25 “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.”
And we ask the Lord to keep us which takes us to the request of preservation in the 16th Division of Psalms, verses 1-11.
1 Preserve me O God; for in thee do I put my trust.
Preserve is a protection from all hurt, harm, and danger that only The Good Shepherd can do!
2O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee:
3But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
“My goodness extendeth not to thee:”
David the psalmist is saying here that there is no meaning to life and no personal happiness without the Lord’s presence. You may think you there’s meaning to life and happiness but there will come a time that you will find a void or emptiness that cannot be fulfilled any other way but by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Man has no goodness to extend to God. It’s only God’s goodness that is extended to us, when we as true disciples of Christ decide to follow Him.
4Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.
False gods are everywhere today. Satan worshippers actually drink blood as part of their ceremony. The drinking of blood is absolutely forbidden by God. Acts 21:25 says “As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.”
God is a jealous God…...

Jesus and Mohammed

... Running Head: Jesus and Mohammed Jesus and Mohammed Jesus and Mohammed Monotheistic religions are those religions that believe in only one God. Two monotheist religions are Christianity and Islam. These two religions each came to be due to their respective prophets: Jesus and Mohammed. Although both Christianity and Islam believe in the same God, they each have their different beliefs due to the differences brought on by their prophets. Jesus Christianity was started with its prophet Jesus Christ. Jesus was born to Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem. His birth is said to be immaculate because Mary was still a virgin when she became pregnant with Jesus. It is said that she conceived Jesus directly from the Holy Spirit. His conception became the first sign that Jesus was the son of god. His birth is very important because he was born in the stables with the animals. Humble shepherds and angels came to his side to pay their respects to the son of god. The bible also states that three wise men followed a star to the stable and brought with them gifts for the new king, Jesus Christ. There gifts were gold, frankincense, and myrrh and were to confirm his kingship (Fisher, 2005). After Jesus was born, Herod, afraid that the newborn baby would indeed take over his role as king, ordered the death of Jesus. Joseph was awaken by the Holy Spirit and told to take Mary and the baby and escaped to Egypt where they would be safe (Biblica, 1984,......

Jesus

...Mission We are committed to spreading the Good news we have by sharing our lives with others. Mark 16:15-16 "He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned." 3. New Testament emphasis Whilst obviously, both parts of the Bible are of vital importance, we place an emphasis on the New Testament as it gives us not only the life of Christ to follow, but also teaching on how to live our lives as followers of Jesus, and how to organize and run the church. 4. Simple Confession of Faith There are many long and complicated confessions of faith. Whilst we do not necessarily disagree with any of them, we stick to a simple one (Matthew 16:16). Jesus asked the question "Who do you say I am?" To which Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." 5. Believer's Baptism We believe, the person must make a commitment to Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior to be baptized. We follow the Biblical pattern of baptism by immersion where the person is literally "immersed" under the water rather than sprinkled or having water poured over them. (We will do this under very special circumstances if the person cannot go under the water for medical reasons). For more information on Believer's Baptism. We do not practice infant baptism, but have services of infant dedication where the parents or guardians of the infant promise to bring up the......

Jesus

...who is "Jesus Christ". In order to understand who Jesus were, lets look at his life according to the bible. Jesus Christ according to the several authors who wrote the 27 "books" of the New Testament, Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of the World, and the long awaited Jewish Messiah. He was born in the town of Bethlehem to a woman named Mary. His father was a carpenter named Joseph. Little is known of His childhood except that His family lived in Egypt for a short time before returning to Israel and settling in a town called Nazareth. In the Gospel of Luke, chapter two, gives an account of his visit to Jerusalem when He was twelve. At the age of thirty, Jesus Christ began His ministry of preaching the good-news of the Kingdom of God, or the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus grew up to be a man, teaching[->0] throughout Palestine and performing numerous miracles[->1] to validate His claims. John the Baptist was baptizing people for repentance in the river Jordan at this time and Jesus Christ submitted Himself to John to be baptized also. Baptism was a ritual that symbolized spiritual cleansing. After His baptism, Jesus spent forty days fasting in the wilderness where He was tempted to sin by the Devil, aka Satan. From there He returned to Galilee and began to teach people concerning the Law of Moses, and how these related to entering the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus accepted twelve students, or disciples, to learn the truth about God word. Jesus also......

Keep Me in Your Heart

...Keep me in your Heart “Call it infatuation. Illusion. Obsession. Call it a nightmare, but call it love” It all started with one hello. The day when I met the most beautiful girl my eyes could ever see. Eya Montenegro, the girl that I adore all my life. Whenever she’s around my heart skips a beat, butterflies flood my tummy and I feel like I’m in heaven. I am Kevin Patrick Padua, the son of the Wilford University’s President. Many thought that I was a playboy, chick magnet perhaps but only one girl entered my heart and never once again left. One day, Eya or Ey walked into the gymnasium where I was playing basketball when suddenly the ball hit her right through the head. “Hey! What’s your problem?” Eya said. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt you.” I say. “Yeah you did.” She said and throws the ball right at me intentionally. “That was mean! I said sorry, remember? I will never again treat you right!” As I said this to her, she immediately walked away. On our chemistry class, we were given a project and assigned to a lab partner. Unfortunately, Eya is my lab partner. “You again?” She says. “It’s destiny my love” I say with a wink. “Ha ha, very funny” she says with a snobbish attitude. We hardly got ourselves into a conversation the whole class when suddenly she started talking, “So what’s your plan Mr. Padua?” “Let’s meet at my house and get this project over with” I say. “That’s a good idea, Saturday 2 pm? Is that okay?” she says. “That’s perfect.” I......

Jesus Reflection

...August 17, 2013 Christian Worldview Mrs. Farley Jesus Reflection Essay What I learned from the Jesus film was about his teaching. I have to say he preached a lot of good words and I wished I can see various people practice his words in society and cultural. There are some people who follow and read the Bible to start their life on a righteous path and there are some that I see our falling into sins and wrong choices in life. In the book of Matthew I think Jesus was teaching the people how to carefully listen to one another and follow the rules and they will forever parish in God’s Kingdom. The teaching goes along with cultural because families and churches can keep the traditions going and they too can teach their children and new converts what lessons Jesus has taught to follow the rules of life. In the film Jesus preach about forgiveness, and taught the people about the rules that God have provided them with. I read Matthew 5-7 and there is a rule that said “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:15, ESV). In today society there are a few people who believe in false prophet hood for an example there are devil worshiper and they believe in Satan as their true God. The book of Matthew has a lot of words of wisdom and I see why my friends have such good morals, because they follow the rules. My friend’s churches have Food Drive and help out with the homeless a lot, the same situation with my......

The Death of Jesus

...For the next 60 seconds, set aside whatever you're doing and take this opportunity to read, please! At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to the death …At the time crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals were condemned to be crucified. Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion Jesus was to be nailed to the cross by His hands and feet. Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long. The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There's a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself so that He could breath. Both of His feet were nailed together…Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs because of the pain so He was forced to alternate between arching His back then using his legs just to continue to breath. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage. Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours. Yes, over 3 hours! Can you imagine this kind of suffering? A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water from his wounds. From common images we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the......

...Joann Juarez CWV-101 February 16, 2014 Dr. Ron Woodworth Jesus In the film Jesus we follow his path through the world. Throughout the film we learn about the Messianic Prophecies, Jesus’s miracles, his death and resurrection. I believe learning and understanding this topic can help me be successful in my life. Understanding why Jesus was chosen to come to Earth, his miracles, and learning his sacrifices for us will help anyone understand the world we live in. The Messianic Prophecies lets us see who Jesus is and what he wishes from us. We see in the film that Mary who is a virgin is chosen by the Holy Spirit to conceive Jesus. He is sent to Earth as the Messiah as stated in the Bible (Isaiah 9:6 King James Version) For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Jesus’s is sent to earth to spread the word of God and to give people hope. I believe everyone is given a certain path in life. When I graduate from high school I wanted to be a Buyer for the fashion industry but because of circumstances that did not happen. Instead of feeling sorry for myself I found a job working in the banking industry. While working there, I learned that I enjoy working with numbers and analyzing information.

Jesus

...Jesus was the son of God. Jesus Christ came to Earth to live among mankind and to teach and minister to us. Jesus provided mankind with the hope of everlasting life and happiness if only we lived by God’s word. Jesus taught us that life was a gift and through his teachings he was able to show us that God only wants the best for us and if we chose to live by his word we will have this. Jesus was sent to live among mankind by God. He was born to the Virgin Mary and to Joseph a carpenter. God knew that if Jesus was born to a virgin it would show that Jesus was pure and truly from God. Joseph didn’t want to marry Mary once he found out she was pregnant, but when God appeared to him in his dreams he knew that Jesus was going to save us from our sins and decided to stay married to her. Once it was time for Jesus to be born, his poor parents could find no place to have the baby and resorted to Jesus being born in the stable. However, this was the best decision because it showed that Jesus came in poverty and with humility so that Jesus could identify with weakest among us. As Jesus grew up, he began to teach to people. His disciples were his primary focus, for they were to carry on his message to those that he could not come in contact with. Jesus had to perform miracles to prove to nonbelievers that there was a God and that God truly had their best interest at heart. These miracles Jesus performed were simple, but were significant. In one of them for example, Jesus came upon a......

...Jesus and Muhammad Anthony Ebron 3/1/2009 Trace the lives of Jesus and Muhammad historically. Compare what impact the death of each person had on his respective religion. Describe the ways each individual was/is worshipped. Explain how their messages are being carried out in the world today. Jesus and Muhammad Paper Life of Jesus: There is very little historical proof of the life of Jesus outside of the Bible. What Christians believe about Jesus’ life and teachings is based largely on biblical texts, particularly the first four books of the New Testament, which are called the gospels. These books seem to have been written around forty to sixty years after Jesus’ death. They are based on the oral transmission of the stories and discourses, which may have been influenced by the growing split between Christians and Jews. The gospels were first written down in Greek and perhaps Aramaic, the everyday language that Jesus spoke, and then copied and translated in many different ways over the centuries. Jesus was probably born a few years before the first year of what is now called the Common Era. Traditionally, Christians have believed that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Jesus’ mother was Mary, who was a virgin when she conceived him by Holy Spirit; her husband was Joseph, a carpenter from Bethlehem. No other stories are told about Jesus’ childhood in Nazareth until he was twelve years old. He accompanied his parents on their yearly trip to Jerusalem for Passover. Left......

...prophet Jesus pbuh in the holy Qur’an The prophet Jesus pbuh, known as Isa or Isa Ibn Maryam in the holy Qur’an, is considered to be a messenger of god in Islam who came before the prophet Muhammad pbuh and is mentioned in the holy Qur’an on numerous occasions. The verses of the Qur’an regarding Jesus pbuh include stories such as Mary conceiving him whilst still a virgin, the details of his birth, and his talking to the people whilst still in his cradle. Also mentioned is the revelation of the Gospel (Injil) onto the prophet Jesus pbuh, his ascending and his second coming before the Day of Judgment. The many amazing facts and miracles referring to the prophet Jesus throughout the Qur’an reflect that he is clearly a significant figure in the Qur’an and in Islam. The birth of Jesus pbuh was a miraculous event as described in the holy Qur’an. Jesus’ mother Mary was visited by the angel Gabriel who gave her good news of a son: 'O Mary, God gives you glad tidings of a son through a word from HIM; his name will be Christ Jesus, son of Mary, honored in this world and in the Hereafter, and of those nearest to God (Quran 3:45). Mary was shocked by this news, as she was still a virgin. She asked the angel how she could have a child when no man had ever touched her. The angel replied: So your Lord says, ‘It is easy for me: and (We wish) to appoint him as a sign to men and a mercy from Us.  And it is a matter (already) decided (Quran 19:16-21). The Qur’an states the virgin birth of......

Jesus Ceo

...Jesus CEO Introduction There are many different characteristics that are talked about in the book “Jesus, CEO”. The three leadership techniques that are discussed are: strength of self-mastery, strength of self-action, and strength of relationships. There are a variety of different characteristics from each leadership technique that stood out to me about being an effective leader in the 21st century. Strength of self-mastery Strength of self-mastery focuses on internal motivators that allow us to influence others. Self-mastery is a test of our character. There are 5 characteristics which stood out to me about Jesus that would contribute to an effective leader in the 21st century. 1. He believed in himself. Jesus was one of the most confident people that ever lived. He never lacked confidence in himself or his abilities. Jesus’ belief in himself was an aspect of self-mastery. This instilled confidence in followers but also allowed him to relate to others. Believing in yourself in the 21st century is an important characteristic to have because if you don’t believe in yourself then nobody will believe in you. Effective leaders believe in themselves and are good at getting other people to believe in them. 2. He did the difficult things. Jesus did not worry about public opinions or the feelings of others, but he made decisions based on what was necessary. Professionals stay focused on their mission and do the difficult things. Whether it’s......

It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed. Isaiah 53:4-5 (GNT) (KJV) “But he endured the suffering that should have been ours, the pain that we should have borne. All the while we thought that his suffering was punishment sent by God. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed Ecclesiastes 11:6 (MSG) Go to work in the morning and stick to it until evening without watching the clock.

...In my search for the historical Jesus I found that there are several different opinions about Jesus’ life, from his birth, to where he was between the ages of 12 until he was 30, to his resurrection. I have taken several different opinions of who the real historical Jesus, but first I want to start with the facts. We know that Jesus was born in the time of Herod. This tells us that he had to be born somewhere around 6 BC. It is also known that he visited the temple at age twelve. Little is known about where Jesus was between the age of 12 and the age of thirty; thirty being when he started his ministry which took place in and around Israel. Most people do agree that Jesus died by crucifixion in the year thirty-three. I used the biblical story of Jesus for a base line story to get started; then explained other opinions at the end of this essay. Luke 2:1-20 1-5About that time Caesar Augustus ordered a census to be taken throughout the Empire. This was the first census when Quirinius was governor of Syria. Everyone had to travel to his own ancestral hometown to be accounted for. So Joseph went from the Galilean town of Nazareth up to Bethlehem in Judah, David's town, for the census. As a descendant of David, he had to go there. He went with Mary, his fiancée, who was pregnant. 6-7While they were there, the time came for her to give birth. She gave birth to a son, her firstborn.

I was giving the talk from Sunday afternoon session of general conference by Elder Dallin H Oaks Titled Teachings of Jesus, but the topic was extended to include how it applies to covenants. This was a daunting task for me due to the time of year during tax season and also because I received a call from on Thursday evening with a busy week for me, Being sick and traveling to on Saturday and back I feel that I accomplished a miracle for me. Elder Oaks starts out his talk by a simple quote of scripture that confounded the Pharisees of his day, “What think ye of Christ?” (Matt 22:42). What a short and simple phrase that is a good question to ask ourselves today. He goes on and asks two more questions to us as Latter- Day Saints and other Christians, “What do you really believe about Jesus Christ and What are you doing because of that belief?” What do you really believe about Jesus Christ?
