Reasons Goshen16 is created ...
What is our life
James 4:14 - whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
Through the years, and having walk through various life experiences, there is much that can be documented as a throwback memorials.
It includes much struggles, facing various challenges and a spiritual journey of walking in faith.
This is to remind us always of the goodness & faithfulness of God in our life.
The Great Commission
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Indeed nothing can be able to fully express Jesus' great love for us as He has love us with an everlasting love. He has demonstrated this by willingly to die in our place to satisfy a holy God's requirement for men to be sinless to be in His presence. Nothing that we do is ever able to repay His great love. We can only share this love to as many as who are willing to receive out there.
In and through the many spiritual experiences and the lessons that God has taught me on this journey of faith, it is my joy to bless by sharing with others. Indeed these might be the spiritual food for other weary souls.
He is worthy
Revelation 5:12 - saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain. To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
This blog's purpose is also to connect with friends, acquaintances, like-minded people and strangers who have interests in knowing more about a spiritual experience.
This is an experience of having the Son of God and abiding in Him in our lives. That Son of God is Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior and the Lamb of God who took away the sins of the whole world.
It is sown with a desire that it will profit someone in encouraging, in stirring up their faith, in believing in Him for the impossible, even though not seen with our natural eyes.
May this be a blessing
Luke 11:33 - “No one, when he has lit a lamp, puts it in a secret place or under a basket, but on a lampstand, that those who come in may see the light."
Most of all, it is in witnessing to those who have yet to experience His saving grace and receive the salvation of our souls. This is the hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ through His atoning death on the cross for the sins of Mankind. This is the gospel and promise of our Creator, God Almighty.
May it be a blessings by God to whoever is on this journey to search for Truth, this is my prayer.
A new birth - a spiritual birth
Hence the blog is named "Marvel not that I said unto you, ye must be born again," tagline is His Kingdom (eternal).
We have to be sure of our faith, of who and what we believe in, and to bears testimony for our faith (Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death).
It is also the answer-reply in my heart as to the reason of my hope (1 Peter 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:)
May this blog glorify the Great I Am, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Shepherd of our soul and lift Him up for all the world to see.
This blog space is called Goshen16 because
The blog was birthed in year 2016 and it is named Goshen for the reason that Goshen is the only place designated by God in the whole of Egypt where no plagues will befall the inhabitants of this land (Exodus 8:22 - And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth) while the whole land of Egypt was devastated by the ten plagues [(1) Blood, (2) Frog, (3) Lice, (4) Flies, (5) on cattle, (6) boils and open sores, (7) Hails, (8) Locusts, (9) Darkness and (10) death of every first born] that the LORD send as a judgment on the Egyptians.
But in the land of Goshen there was no harm on any man nor cattle who dwells there.
This will be the land where good seeds will be sown. Good seeds such as seeds of love, faith, and hope, truths from the bible will be sown to bless the hearts of those who reads.
Giving all glory to God.
