    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    If you're interested in learning more about God, you can leave a message here, you could go to this site and leave a message or you can read on.



    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    You mean work is involved?!

       Every day I go to school, I see the battle that takes place in the world and in me. Who knew that being a Christian wasn't a 'walk in the park'? I didn't plan on fighting this war when I got saved. But, I am glad to be part of this war, as it is what God wants me to do.

       What war you ask? The war that takes place every day between good and evil. Just because you're saved, it doesn't mean it will be easy. God will help you, but he won't do it for you.

       Every day we need to fight with all our might. It may be worse on some days than others, but I promise you that sometime during your day you will have a choice. What you choose is up to you. Where does your heart lie?

    Wanted: Authors for my blog

       I have two purposes in this post. First, to make it clear what I want this blog to be. Second, to invite any Christian author who is willing to lend wisdom.

       I would like this blog not be a collection of my ramblings, but rather a collection of whatever wisdom or inspiration or perhaps stupidity that anyone would like to write. So if this interests you, contact me in some way! There is like 10 different ways on this page or you can email me at megiddo@swiftdesk.com

       Thank you! I look forward for any posts someone has to make!

       By the way, I got my first author, CodePainter from http://codepainter.blogdrive.com I don't think he'll post very often, as he has his own blog to manage, but I look forward to whatever he might say.

    Site for Christian teens

       I spent all night making a new web site, though all I have is the forum completed. The address for the forum is http://christinteens.proboards20.com/. As I said, that is just a forum, and I plan on making an actual site at http://christianteens.t35.com/ . The site name is Christian teens ( you may notice the forum address is christinteens, it stands for Christ In Teens. ) and I would like some help making the site, if anyone who reads this is interested. Just e-mail me.

        Pic from site:
     
     
       My favorite verse = Acts 20:24
             However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me--the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace.

    Lord of the Rings

       Everyone knows of the billion dollar movie series, the Lord of the Rings. Well, I saw the conclusion, The Return of the King, today. Only three and a half hours long, but it sure packs a punch!
     
       Frodo Baggins is a character that is desperately trying to get an 'evil' ring to a fiery mountain and destroy it. He has to take it to the mountain because that is the only place that can destroy it. The trouble is, the more Frodo is with the 'evil' ring, the more Frodo succumbs to the ring. If Frodo doesn't destroy the ring, the world will be taken over by the person who made the ring, whose life force is tied to it.

       Their was a scene that really interested me. Frodo is in the fiery mountain, but he can't seem to let go of the ring ( by this time, he is almost corrupt because of the ring ). Is this a good picture of sin or what? There you are with a choice, you can either choose the right ( destroy the ring instantly ) or you can think about it, allowing the Devil to counsel you. I promise you, the Devil makes very good arguments. If you hesitate, you become more 'corrupt', making it harder to choose the right.

    Yay for Blogs

       Yep, you heard me. Yay for blogs.

       Anywho, I decided it would be nice to make a blog and see what people think of what I have to say. I am going to a public high school, but I am Christian (and loving it).

       Christians aren't perfect, as any Christian ( or human, for that matter ) would know. Why did I name this blog Megiddo? Well, Megiddo is a place in Israel where the Bible says that the war at the end of the world will take place. ( If you want to read more about this, check out Revelation ) This blog isn't about the end of the world, although I might enjoy posting some things about Revelation.

       Another important thing you probably want to know about me is that I love computers. I'm not a *huge* fan of video games, but I enjoy programming, level designing, and web designing. So if a post looks to technical for ya, you can skip over it.

       And please, I would LOVE feedback on any of my posts. If you disagree with me on something, blurt it out! I want to see other people's ideas, not just my own!

       EDIT by Megiddo: umm... this blogs purposes kinda changed... check out this post to get more up to speed... ( why are you looking at the first post anyways? ) here's the link: http://megiddo.blogdrive.com/archive/cm-2_cy-2004_m-2_d-8_y-2004_o-1.html
