God Can Re-Write Your Story

Cover_smReal Jesus Ministries, Inc. has created a new website exclusively devoted to providing an online platform for testimonies like YOURS.

The Power of Your Testimony.

Everyone who has received Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord has a testimony of how God has transformed your life. When we received the forgiveness of our sins and became spiritually re-born through faith in God’s Son, all of us experienced changes in our lives that the world needs to know. In fact, the Bible tells us we are now “New Creatures in Christ” and God will use your story to draw other people to want to know Jesus, too.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold , all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony…” –Revelation 12:11

Share YOUR STORY of how God re-wrote your life when you received Christ by going to our new website, www.GodCanRewriteYourStory.com and clicking on the link, Submit Your Story. You don’t have to be a professional writer. We’ve made it easy for you to tell your story by using our automated form.

You’ll be amazed how much better you’ll feel knowing that others who read about your faith experience will be encouraged and given hope by your testimony.

Plus, you too will be edified when you read the testimonies of others!

L’Abri co-founder, Edith Schaeffer dies at 98

Francis and Edith Schaeffer

Francis and Edith Schaeffer

Edith Schaeffer, co-founder of L’Abri Fellowship and widow of theologian-philosopher Francis Schaeffer, died on Friday at age 98.

Schaeffer was born in Wenzhou, China to missionaries who were serving with the China Inland Mission. In addition to her English name, her parents gave her the Chinese name Mei Fuh, meaning “beautiful happiness”.

On June 26th, 1932, Edith attended a meeting in her liberal Presbyterian church where a Unitarian minister delivered an address on “How I know that Jesus is Not the Son of God,” and “How I Know that the Bible is not the Word of God.” She was prepared to offer a rebuttal when a young man stood up and said, “My name is Francis Schaeffer and I want to say that I know Jesus is the Son of God, and He is also my Savior.” After Francis delivered his testimony, Edith added a brief apologetic for the truth of the Bible. The two began dating that night and married three years later.

To put her husband Francis through seminary, Edith tailored men’s suits and made gowns and wedding dresses for private clients. After three years serving in active parish ministries in the United States, the Schaeffers moved their family to Switzerland in 1948 to help churches in their efforts to resist both liberalism in theology and existentialism in the culture after World War II.

L’Abri Fellowship began in Switzerland in 1955 when Francis and Edith decided in faith to open their home to be a place where people might find satisfying answers to their questions and practical demonstration of Christian care. It was called L’Abri, the French word for “shelter,” because they sought to provide a shelter from the pressures of a relentlessly secular 20th century.

Celebrating Passover Verses Easter

Jesus the Holy Lamb of God that was sacrificed for us on Passover

Jesus the Holy Lamb of God that was sacrificed for us on Passover

Some of you have asked “Why don’t we celebrate Easter*, attend sunrise services, honor the bunny rabbit or decorate colorful Easter eggs?” The answer is simple: These practices are not to be found in the Bible! Therefore, as faithful Christians we must be careful not to observe traditions that are not Scriptural nor holidays that have pagan origins (such as Easter, Valentine /Cupid Day, Halloween, or Christmas).

However, we do observe the biblical holiday of Passover.

This year on Saturday April 7th, Real Jesus Ministries will be celebrating our annual Passover Feast. If you would like to attend, contact us to make reservations. Our Passover Feast will begin with prayer, a special Passover meal (Seder)  and a solemn communion service at sundown the evening before, followed by a unique worship event the following day.

The LORD gave the Passover Feast to us, His people, (both Jews and Gentiles) to remind us of the great sacrifice that Jesus Christ [the Messiah] made on our behalf as the Holy Lamb of God who was sacrificed for us and took away our sins. The LORD specified that it was to be a perpetual feast to be observed for all generations (Exodus 12:14).

——-

* The name “Easter” is never mentioned in the original New Testament Scriptures. It was mistranslated in the King James (English) Bible in Acts 12:4, but it should have been translated “Pesach”, the Biblical Passover Feast instituted by God. It was during the annual Passover celebration that Jesus was killed at Jerusalem in which Acts 12:4 describes – not the pagan holiday normally associated with the term “Easter”.

– Pastor Luis Yosefus

The enemy of both Christians and Jews is dead.

“Who is like You O LORD…glorious in holiness, fearful in praise, doing wonders.” – Exodus 15:11

U.S. President Barack Obama has confirmed today that Osama bin Laden, leader of the Al-Qaeda terror group who has been sought for nearly a decade due to his group’s involvement in the September 11 terror attacks on the World Trade Center, is dead. “Justice has been done”, he said, addressing his words in particular to the families of those killed in 9/11, in the war against the Taliban and also thanking those servicemen and women who took part in the search for the terrorist leader.

“Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song [of victory] to the LORD:

“I will sing to the LORD,

for he is highly exalted.

The horse and its rider

he has hurled into the sea.

The LORD is my strength and my song;

he has become my salvation.

He is my God, and I will praise him,

my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

The LORD is a warrior;

the LORD is his name.

Pharaoh’s chariots and his army

he has hurled into the sea.

The best of Pharaoh’s officers

are drowned in the Red Sea.

The deep waters have covered them;

they sank to the depths like a stone.

“Your right hand, O LORD,

was majestic in power.

Your right hand, O LORD,

shattered the enemy.

In the greatness of your majesty

you threw down those who opposed you.

You unleashed your burning anger;

it consumed them like stubble.”

– Exodus 15:1-7

Happy Passover

Behold! Jesus The Lamb of God who takes away our sin.

Behold! Jesus The Lamb of God who died and rose again.

Jesus The Lamb of God in the Old Testament:

 “Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household…The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or the goats…when all the people of the community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight. Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs. That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast.” – Exodus 12:3-8

 “The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt. This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the Lord—a lasting ordinance.” Exodus 12:13-14

Jesus The Lamb of God in the New Testament:

“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.” – John 1:29

“In a loud voice they sang:

‘Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,

to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength

and honor and glory and praise!”

Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing:

‘To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb

be praise and honor and glory and power,

 for ever and ever!”

The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.”

 – Revelation 5:12-14
