Pride and ruin go hand in hand:
“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” – Proverbs 16:18

Erica McKenzie died from a diet pill narcotic. Her heart failed, all her organs started to shut down. She took her last breath, lost consciousness, then left her body, the real spiritual she. She saw her body from above attended by paramedics, and she let go. When she chose to let go, she was embraced by light and incredible love, effortlessly ascended and was delivered into the hands of God.

“A worldview is a mental model of reality — a framework of ideas and attitudes about the world, ourselves, and life, a comprehensive system of beliefs — with answers for a wide range of questions: What are humans, why we are here, and what is our purpose in life? What are your goals for life? When you make decisions about using time — it’s the stuff life is made of — what are your values and priorities? What can we know, and how, and with how much certainty? Does reality include only matter/energy, or is there more…” – American Scientific Association Continue reading “Worldview – Intro / Мировоззрение – введение”

Know your enemy – the devil in the New Testament / Знай своего врага – дьявол в Новом Завете
The devil knows the Bible too. How easy is it to confuse you by misquoting God’s word? See Genesis 3:1-6, 2 Corinthians 11:3. The way to defeat the devil is to correctly quote God’s word/use the sword of the spirit. Ephesians 6:17, Hebrews 4:12 Continue reading “New Testament verses about the devil / Стихи о дьяволе в Новом Завете”

Introduction / введение
Imagine two funerals: one of a righteous man and one of a great sinner. Both died a tragic death. It is not surprising to hear, if someone says at the sinner’s funeral: “Considering how he lived, his reckless lifestyle, something like this sooner or later had to happen to him. He got what he deserved.” But why did the righteous person perish? Did he die a senseless death for no reason? Was is an accident or mistake? What is the meaning of such death? Continue reading “Mother and Her Seven Sons / Мать и её семь сыновей”
There is a saying that even a child can lead a bull by the nose on a rope. The bull is big and strong, the child is small and weak, but even so, it is possible. Sin is like the chain that the enemy tied and leads us by. Even a little sin can hold the strongest man.
THE LITTLE WHITE DOG
There was a village, in that village there was a very poor house. It was an old wooden house that needed many repairs. It was surrounded by an old fence in bad shape too. The house belonged to the poorest family in the village. They owned only a very small field of poor soil quality at the edge of a forest. So, they were poor and had no money. The man of the house needed a guard dog, but he could not afford to buy a proper guard dog. He had only enough money to buy a little white puppy, who was not a guard dog at all. The farmer put the puppy outside, tied him to a chain and put him in a dog house. The farmer wanted to train that little white dog to become a guard dog. The puppy was too small and too young to be a guard dog. He really wanted to play with children and be held by someone. He was all alone and scared. He was cold and lonely. He was tied to a chain, he could not run away, even if he tried. When he heard someone pass by on the other side of the fence, and he could not see who it was, he would bark, because he was afraid.

Messiah in the Passover / Мессия в Пэсахе
From the Haggadah / Из Агады:
The Three Matzot – Unity / Три Мацы – Единство
One of the most intriguing items on the Passover table are three matzot placed together on one plate – each in a special compartment of fine linen. These three matzot combined together are referred to as a “unity” by the ancient rabbis.
Одним из самых интригующих предметов на пасхальном столе являются три мацы, сложенные вместе на одной пластине – каждый в специальном отделении из тонкого льна.
