Topic: You can be HAPPY without Sin
Scripture: Jesus replied, The Israelites had not celebrated like this since the days of Joshua son of Nun” (Nehemiah 8:17 NLT).
Message: Sometimes people think if they do what the Bible says, they’ll be miserable.They’ll say, “The sinners have all the fun.They get to do all the cool stuff.They do whatever they want to.We have been deceived to think that Righteousness is wretchedness.We think that doing His will will rob us of our joy.
But do the sinners really have fun? Yes,There is fun in sin but it’s temporal,and the penalties of sin are brutal.It comes with temporal happiness but have eternal consequences.Why sacrifice your eternal JOY for temporal happiness?
As the people of Israel heard God speak to them through Ezra, they realized they had missed something the Scriptures had told them to do. So they obeyed the Word of God.The result of their obedience was great *JOY*: “So everyone...

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”
Elie Wiesel, Nobel Prize winning author and Holocaust survivor
Yom HaZikaron laShoah ve-laG'vurah (יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה; "Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day"), is observed as Israel's day of commemoration for the six million Jews and five million others who were murdered in the Holocaust as a result of the actions carried out by Nazi Germany. In God's Holy Land, it is a national memorial day and public holiday. This day was inaugurated on 1953, anchored by a law signed by the Prime Minister of Israel David Ben-Gurion and the President of Israel Yitzhak Ben-Zvi.
In response, today we take time to remember. Our history is no stranger to violence, injustice, and oppression. The bible mentions it in hundreds of passages throughout its holy pages. In Isaiah 1:17 we learn, “ to do good; seek...
What motivates Christian Zionists?
By Shelley Neese
I am a Christian. And I am a Zionist. But it took me years of being both to realize that I’m a Christian Zionist. Though I consider myself a strong Christian and a committed lover of Israel, out of college I was leery of calling myself a Christian Zionist. My definition of a Christian Zionist was unclear and muddled by stereotypes I had absorbed over time.
Where I got those stereotypes is no mystery. Any time you hear interviews with prominent Christian Zionist leaders, certain questions are guaranteed to come up:
“Gary Bauer from American Values, tell us why evangelicals are so eager for the apocalypse?”
“Susan Michael from International Christian Embassy Jerusalem, is church support for Israel merely a tool to convert the Jews?”
“Earl Cox from Israel Always, do Christian Zionists only support Israel to realize the scenario of Armageddon?”
