Espirito Santo

' Simo, seeing that for the imposition of the hands of the apstolos ones he was given the Espirito Santo, offered money to them, saying: Of there – me also me this power, so that one on who I to put the hands I receive the Espirito Santo. But Peter said to it: Your money is with you for perdio, therefore you took care of that dom of God if reaches for dinheiro.' ' Acts 8:18 – 20 From this incident the term originated, Simonia, to define the action to intend to get good spirituals, by means of payment. However, the practical one is well older. In the days of Moiss, Balao, the mercenary prophet, if made use to curse Israel, in exchange for the goods of Balaque, what it did not consummate, only for having been hindered for God. ' ' Then the Balao said God: You will not go with them, nor you will curse this people, inasmuch as he is bendito.' ' In one; 22:12 Although the divine warning, it insisted, given that it offers for its ' ' ministrio' ' it was also increased. It remained the God, the extreme resource of irony; a time that the prophet if disclosed a jumento, promoted you its jumenta the prophet. If the practical one continued today, would have that to develop the production of jericos sufficiently, data the effective scene.

In the time Dos Reis, it had relapse in the practical one more, with damages accented that a humilhante dialogue with jegue. God restores the health of the general siro Naam, who is leprous, and it, been thankful, wanted to reward Eliseu prophet. The man of God, however, refused the gifts, firing to the happy general, with all dons that he brings. However, the young man of Eliseu, Geazi, did not resist the temptation; ' ' Then Geazi, servant of Eliseu, man of God, said: Here it is that mine Sir saved this Naam Syrian, not receiving from its hand some thing of what brought; however, you lives that I have sliding behind it, and to receive from it some coisa.' ' 2 Kings 5:20 the young man ran behind Naam, and asked for to silver and vestments, lying and using the name of the prophet.

LATER One

The problem is that the man has fear to think about a distant future because finds this depressing one. In a modern society, where the imediatismo if became in a social law, to think about the future it will be able to disturb the happiness that we have today. My expensive one, you does not have nothing to lose when stopping a little to reflect in the life. Where happiness level you meet today and where she intends to arrive? Of this it goes to depend the stability on its happiness. Wait there? that happiness? You are satisfied only with the happy moments that are having today? He obtains to only enxergar something moreover? You already thought about the one possibility a more abundant life of what only the happiness moments that live today? He would be this possible one? Where you search its happiness? Either sincere. If it will be in the beauty, daqui little will be arriving its anniversary; If it will be in the sex, not if it forgets that the anniversaries continue if following; If it will be in the money, is good that it prepares its will soon; If it will be in the genius, is prepared for the retirement; If it will be in the religion? it found the way, but it is spoken brazenly of the masks and it is prepared to face losses and persecutions.

What surplus then? It swims! this is the real reply for who search happiness without the participation of God, the Creator. Jesus Christ said: ‘ ‘ Happy the people who suffer persecutions for making the will of God, therefore the kingdom of God is of them. ‘ ‘ Mateus 5:10 In this declaration meets intriguing, however wonderful a contrast and that it runs away to the logical human being. The secular society considers this apparent contracensus of God as madness. To see I Color. 2:14 To say that the exempt faith the Christian of the crises of the life, is a great hypocrisy. But it is through the faith that we receive the comfort necessary to ahead remain a calm position and confident of the difficulties of the day-day. The legitimate Christian suffers frequent disadvantages and passes for provaes, to the times, worse of what the unbeliever.

But he does not mean that she is an unhappy person. Because its hope is not only limited to this life. My expensive one, you wants to be happy? It is clearly that yes, but my question goes beyond: until when? Jesus Christ has something better to offer to you of what being happy only until the end of the life. Exactly thus, It continues desiring that you are happy still today, although? When Jesus guided in them to live one day of each time (Mat. 6:34), Its intention was to say that we do not have to center our attention in the cares of this life. It guaranteed that if the kingdom of God will be the reason of our searches, will be confident and chemical preparations to surpass any unnecessary anxiety. With this certainty in the heart, we can say with confidence that we are happy, although? The principle I asked: LATER? If God to come before any thing in its life, It will be later also. This later with God calls perpetual life here it is – the full and permanent happiness.
