Our dear friend William Lemus who founded the ministry in Chiquimula, Guatemala called Mis Manos Tus Manos expressed a need in order to cover the cost to feed over 150 children who live in the trash dump. Without donations he uses his own funds even though he does not have a lot. So The Hope Movement once again was able to provide the needed funds to cover the food costs to provide nutrition and the Gospel to these precious children.
Far Less Has Been Written on the patience of God than on the other excellencies of divine character. Not a few of those who have expatiated at length upon the divine attributes have passed over the patience of God without any comment. It is not easy to suggest a reason for this, for surely the longsuffering of God is as much one of the divine perfections as is His wisdom, power, or holiness—as much to be admired and revered by us. True, the actual term will not be found in a concordance so frequently as the others, but the glory of this grace shines on almost every page of Scripture. Certainly we lose much if we do not frequently meditate upon the patience of God and earnestly pray that our hearts and ways may be more completely conformed thereto.
Probably the principal reason why so many writers have failed to give us anything, separately, upon the patience of God is because of the difficulty of distinguishing this attribute from divine goodness and mercy, particularly the latter. God’s longsuffering is mentioned in conjunction with His grace and mercy again and again (see Exodus 34:6; Numbers 14:18; Psalm 86:15). That the patience of God is really a display of His mercy is one way it is frequently manifested. But that they are one and the same excellency, and are not to be separated, we cannot concede. It may not be easy to discriminate between them. Nevertheless, Scripture fully warrants us in predicating some things of the one which we cannot of the other.
Dios es Soberano. . .
Cosas aparentemente aleatorias:
Las suertes se echan en el regazo; pero el resultado depende del Señor.
COMO los repartimientos de las aguas, así está el corazón del rey en la mano de Jehová: A todo lo que quiere lo inclina.
(Proverbios 21: 1)
Answer: God’s sovereignty is one of the most important principles in Christian theology, as well as one of its most hotly debated. Whether or not God is actually sovereign is usually not a topic of debate; all mainstream Christian sects agree that God is preeminent in power and authority. God’s sovereignty is a natural consequence of His omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence. What’s subject to disagreement is to what extent God applies His sovereignty—specifically, how much control He exerts over the wills of men. When we speak of the sovereignty of God, we mean He rules the universe, but then the debate begins over when and where His control is direct and when it is indirect.
To God be the glory. William Lemus and his ministry Mis Manos Tus Manos are doing a wonderful work in Guatemala from feeding the hungry in the dump, conducting Bible studies including with local police, medical missions, music lessons for poor children and have opened a medical clinic. We had the honor to help @mismanostusmanos help those living in the trash dump in Chiquimula Guatemala by providing them funding to feed the hungry.
June and July 2017 Report:
Greetings of our Lord Jesus Christ to you all this just to extend our gratitude to you all for what God is using you to accomplish especially in Kenya Bungoma Hope Movement. It proofs to us the beauty of God and providence that is divine. The orphans were able to go to school and had good time in school and attended all lessons, dear ones we are proud of you for much work you have done for the fees and food that you supported us and the orphans. We have had much rain which caused one of the widow’s houses to collapse/fall down so we are looking for a way on how we can construct/build another house for her as God provides. The Hope movement team has unity and we are working together as bees and ants. We trust God that much is going to be accomplished. It has been of recommendable and appreciative work done through you all friends in the USA.
The Hope Movement is passionate about sharing the God breathed Word of God understanding this is our guide in all things but in this day and age there is a theological famine happening around the world in the lives of professing Christians and in our churches. The Hope Movement is confronting this famine by offering relief, the teaching and preaching of the Word of God through any resource God provides for His glory.
Every Monday and Thursday The Hope Movement broadcasts live on Facebook to teach theology and answer any questions. At times we will have special guest but this will focus on expositorily breakdown the Bible understanding profound truths of our faith and overcoming false or incorrect teachings which many of us have experienced allowing the Holy Spirit through His word teach us, guide us, open our eyes and give us a new and greater understanding of God.
Expository Bible Verse Review:
12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Galatians 2:20-21 (ESV)
Galatians 2:20: I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
I do not know a better epitome of Christian experience than this. This is the daily walk of a true child of God, if he liveth after any other sort, then he liveth not a Christian’s life at all. Christ living in us, ourselves living upon Christ, and our union to Christ being visibly maintained by an act of simple faith in him, this is the true Christian’s life. – Charles Spurgeon
