The word was the same as GOD.
The word was the source of life,
And this life brought light to men
( John 1 : 1, 4 )
I, even I, am the Lord !
And apart from Me there is no saviour !
I am the first and I am the last ;
apart from Me there is no GOD !
( Isaiah 43 : 11 & 44 : 6b )
God's redemption is more wonderful than God's creation ;
the creation of the world shows us God's power, but
the redemption proves us God's Love
( The Good Seed 2002 )
Don't tell your GOD how big your storm is,
Tell your storm how big your GOD is
GOD's plan is always more beautiful than our desire
Sin was stronger than man and sin is always stronger than man,
but GOD is stronger than sin. So He decided to help us by Christ
( The Good Seed 2002 )
The Scripture is oriented to the Christ.
The Christ, Son of the living GOD , is the base of the Scripture ...
So when we read and interpret the Holy writing, we can't isolate some verses,
we can't try to understand these verses without thinking on its centre : the Christ
[ Martin Luther ]
Without THE BIBLE we will live in ignorance and
we will only see darkness and confusion on the nature of GOD and on ourself
[ Blaise Pascal ]
You can trust the Bible,
GOD always keeps His Word
May the world develops, may human's knowledges reach higher level
But nothing will replace THE BIBLE, fundation of each culture and education.
It was my faith in THE BIBLE which guided me through my moral and instructive life
The more advanced the civilization is, the more THE BIBLE will be used
[ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ]
Why to adore GOD ?
In front of Those Who is really sublime, wonderful, grand,
we have not enough words ; only silence is appropriate ...
To adore is to honour, to accept and to admire God. So adoration is a deep respect in front of Those Who is infinitely big, in front of Those Who is completely right and good. Adoration is a duty to God, it's too a big privilege ... We begin to adore on earth, we will continue to do it in perfection in the eternal paradise.
Our world is like something in perfect order, and we know and understand it with our limited think ... Why the universe is in a perfect order ? And why can we understand this mechanism ? There is only one answer : because there is only one God Who creates the universe and Who gives us faculty to understand everythings. Another reason to adore God
You can find the truth only in GOD. Only Him, the Creator, knows everythings because He is the origin of everythings ; only GOD doesn't change ; only GOD can judge ; He use for this his absolute and perfect wisdom. GOD is the Sovereign Lord whose everythings belong to Him ( The Good Seed 2004 )

Difference between RELIGION and The GOSPEL
There are many religions, but only one Gospel
Religion is a human act, the Gospel is a God's gift
In religion, we search God ; in the Gospel, God searches us
Religion is what people do for God ; the Gospel is what God does for people
Religion changes our external life, the Gospel transforms our internal life
( The Good Seed 2002 )
Religion basis is wisdom,
the Gospel basis is Love

If GOD is all you have :
You have all you need
Charles Zingaro's and Harry Anderson's
Read the Bible and ...
Pay attention to your everyday life
God's answers can be :
- a burning bush
- an angel with a message or ...
- a total silence ( such as with Job ) So :
Keep praying :
Silence is not a sign of God’s absence or lack of caring.
Read the Bible :
it won’t always give you specific answers,
it will draw you closer to God’s heart and teach you how to live according to God’s will.
Pay attention to the common, ordinary experiences of your everyday life,
in which God is abundantly present, helping you to understand more about your place in this world.
[ The New Revised Standard Version -NRSV- Student Bible ; The Guidebook ; Harper Bibles ]
GOD is the best listener
You don't need to shout, nor cry out loud
Because He hears even the very silent prayer of a sincere heart
GOD surely listens and knows the hopes and fears you keep in your heart.
you trust in His Love, miracles happen !!!
Nothing can change GOD's love for you
I will utter Your name, sitting alone among the shadows
of my silent thoughts. I will utter it without words ;
I will utter it without purpose.
For I am like a child that calls its mother a hundred
times, glad that it can say : 'Mother'.
[ Prayer of Rabindranath Tagore in
'The Heart of God' ]
