Hernan Flores

Hernan FloresIn this post I would like to talk about my friend Hernan Flores. He is one of my best buddies in Argentina. He is studying in the Word of Life Bible Institute in Argentina. He hopes to become a preacher and desires to one day come to the United States of America or work in Argentina as a Missionary. He will soon begin his second year in the Bible Institute and I ask that you pray for him in his studies and as God leads him in the future. He helps and teachs at the youth group at his church in La Unión Argentina. Pray also for the Church in Unión that God would bless the Church and Hernans ministry.

I have a dream

I have a dream of reaching the world for Christ.  I have a dream of a place where there is no pain, and no crying.  I dream of a place where there is no more struggle.  I have a dream of a peace and love that the world does not understand.  I have a dream not of this world because I am not of this world.  I have the hope of heaven and the rest in Christ and I need to live in the World but not of the World.

Life Wish List

-Be a Missionary to Africa (or visit quite often)
-Lead tons of people to the Lord

-Get married before age 30 (preferably to a godly, beautiful, y maybe Argentine woman)

-Have lots of Kids (at least three)
-Have kids that speak three or more languages and serve the Lord (but not bad language)
-Die a Happy man (preferably old)

Celebrating Jesus

Hebrews 2:14 “Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,”

6. Jesus is the Soon Coming One

Revelation 22:12-13 “‘Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

Revelation 22:20 “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Yes, I am coming quickly.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.”

Celebrating Jesus

Isaiah 53:1-6 “Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, And like a root out of parched ground; He has no stately form or majesty That we should look upon Him, Nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him. He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.”

5. Jesus is the victorious one

Matthew 28:5-6 “The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. ‘He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.”

Hebrews 9:26 “Otherwise, He would have needed to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now once at the consummation of the ages He has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.”

Celebrating Jesus

Colossians 1:15-20 “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rules or authorities–all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything. For it was the Father’s good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in HIm, and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven.”

3. Jesus is the Holy One

Matthew 1:23 “‘Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,’ which translated means, ‘God with us.'”

John 1:14 “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

4. Jesus is the Saving One

Matthew 1:21 “‘She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”

Luke 2:11 “for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
