Books are a great source for learning, escaping, and expressing oneself. They range from academia, fantasy, as well as biographies. People of all walks enjoy reading and writing books. With such a great range of books, what should I sell?
Where there are readers, there is atleast one bookshop in the area. From that one bookshop, other bookshops may arise. However, are all bookshops the same? Do they all service the same population? Perhaps they don't, so why not complement them by providing services they don't?
There is something special in God's Word. There is something special about how it draws you in. There is something special in God's Word and how it leads a person to Christ Jesus.
Its a new start. I am updating my website theme to be more suitable for the content I post. I am also working on consolidating my posts into one blog: Write It (Integration of My God Encounters and Side-Tracked as well as Bookshop Keeper). I am aiming at no longer using the archive widget but to only use the categories for topical searches of my posts. I am also looking into pre-2010 post-files and examining them to re-post them in Write It. It is my hope to be caught up by the start of the summer; only time will tell.
Resurrection Sunday has begun in accordance with Jewish standards. Yet few people realize the fullness of this day. This is the day that YHWH put on the calendar of mankind as their Day of Redemption. Before the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) made Himself known in the days of the New Testament, there was only purification and sanctification through water and obedience to YHWH's declared laws. Furthermore, people still had to make a special sacrifice offering of redemption once a year to atone for their sins.
When the Easter season begins in the U.S., there are both religious and spiritual elements present from Judaism and Christianity. I say Christianity because its foundations lay in Judaism and the institution set forth by Yeshua (Jesus); the Church (universal Body of Christ). Furthermore, with this season, we also have the Judaic festivals of Purim, Unleavened Bread and Passover. In addition, there are several important days for Christianity: Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter (Resurrection) Sunday; all of which give object reference to the person of Yeshua as the Messiah. Although this selection is not in a formal academic format, much research has been done through both established Jewish and Christian organizations, books, and articles.
For many years, I have read through the passage of Jesus at a wedding in Canaan, (John 2:1-11). I saw many elements within it, yet never the simplicity of a tremendous message of things to come through fulfillment of a new covenant and work of Jesus. It was far beyond the scope of my vision for many years.
In Luke 10, Seventy disciples were appointed by Jesus and ministered in groups of two at places He would soon visit. They accomplished great things by the authority Jesus had bestowed upon them. Yet, when they came back to Him rejoicing over these things, Jesus redirected their rejoicing to having their names "written in heaven." (v.20)
In our present society, too many times, people who do great and mighty things are placed on pedestals; even in Christian circles. It is a dangerous place to be and can lead to a fall that can break people. Though it goes against the flow of the current of our present society, we need to remember to remain low and humble at heart as we serve others; by the authority of Jesus. It will help us to keep our names "written in heaven".
There are many "faith circles" around me that cling to doctrines interpreted and instituted by men, as oppose to those of the Author and appointed writers of the scriptures of God (YHWH). These "faith circles" continue to spread both their ideology and philosophy to people who posses both young and open spirits; who truly hunger and thirst for the elements of Jesus (Yeshua). Unfortunately, these people (victims) have been led astray from the truth by the mind and emotions, as oppose to the truth by the heart and spirit. It is the later that brings the soul into transformation by God and into a new way of life that leads to walking a new path together with Jesus.
It is the first day of the month and yet I find myself struggling. I struggle with the lack of future that I can foresee for my life. I struggle with the lack of finances, lack of better job, and lack of working auto as well. I have called out for help from some brethren, that they may pray for God to make an intervention and supply for all of my needs. I am tired and cannot help to wonder what God intends to do with all of these things with which I struggle.
