The blog is very brief and it is bible based. It is not intended to offend, but to teach and support the children of God in the earth to understand it clearly. All scriptures are taken from the ESV (English Standard Version) bible, and is available free of charge. It will always be free at TBQ. No part of it is to be sold. November 2011 – 2016

The work is ongoing

Colossians 3:23-24 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.

Jesus RestedSometimes when you feel like God is not there, that’s the time He listens to everything we have to say. He is a father like none other, and He spends time, quality time with each and every one of us to comfort and brings peace. We need to know He is always there especially when we need Him most. God came through so many time for us that sometimes we ask: why? Why are we still here? The answer is always: God has a plan and it is the better one, not ours.  There is still work to do, and time is going fast, so work with faith, knowing that the Master is in control, and you are not alone, He is right there with you. God grant us faith, peace and comfort to wait on Your timing to bring us through whatever situation we find ourselves in.

God’s Authorities

queenelizabethiiLet every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Romans 13:1 (ESV)

 We are to obey these authorities and not oppose them. We are told the reason they are there is for us to be subject to them (1 Peter 2:13-14) not to  oppose them. If we don’t know how to respect the authorities that God has put in place here on earth, how are we going to have any respect to His heavenly authorities? We are here to learn to submit to God’s authorities, and as we learn in humility, we will be equipped to do so forever. This is just a school lesson we are being taught, so when we “graduate” here under the earthly authorities, we will be ready to submit to the “Final authority” soon to come. Children of God, He has placed us under His authorities, let us learn to submit to them and learn the lessons well, so we may inherit the blessing that comes to those who obey. Jesus has shown us what it means to submit to God’s authority, by becoming a human being and die a death that none other has endured. With everything He went through, He never grasp on the equality (Philippians 2:5-7) He once had, but in full submission, He cried: “Not My will, but Your will be done” (Luke 22:41-42)”! This is total submission. After His submission, God gave Him all authority in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18). Even with all authority, He remains submitted to His Father (John 14:16-17, 1 Corinthians 15:23-24). 

teaching-in-the-templeThere are authorities in church also, yes, God put them (Holy Spirit, Elders) (John 14:16-17, Hebrews 13:17) in place, and we need to submit to them as to the Lord. There are also authorities at home (1 Corinthians 11:3), we need to submit to them. God is teaching us to submit to Himself in everything we do, because He is the one who place us under these authorities. Wives submit to your husbands (Ephesians 5:22), Members submit to the elders/leaders (Hebrews 13:17 ), children submit to your parents (Ephesians 6:1), Young women submit to the older women (Titus 2:1-5) and everyone submit to the government God place in authority over us (Romans 13:1). If we do not submit now, we will not then. If we are faithful in little, we will be faithful in much (Luke 16:10). If we refuse to submit willingly now, we will do so by force, but we will all submit to God’s Final authority.

Jesus at the gateThere is a Final Authority coming, and when He comes to power, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is LORD, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:8-11). God gave Him this authority and one day soon, He will take His place and rule. Jesus Christ is that final authority and of His kingdom there is NO END (Luke 1:32-33). Today we have earthly authorities all around us, and they are in place because God put them there. May God teach us with the help of His Holy Spirit to submit to His governing authorities. 

I am still learning to submit, and I know when you understand it, it will all make sense to you as it did to me. God bless us as we submit to His authorities.

It’s About Jesus Christ

Marks Of A True Christian

strengthenLet love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:9-21esv

Note: Are you a true Christian? Continue in it with the Spirit of God. Is God still working on you? Be patient, He will do a good work in you through His Spirit. God bless you as you grow into maturity.
