Repentance leads to the Faith warrior's List

Repentance lead to the Faith warrior's List
"And Samson called unto the LORD,and said,O Lord God,remember me,I pray thee,and strengthen me,I pray thee,only this once,O God,that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes" Judges 16:27
This was the last prayer of Samson.He was an anointed judge.
Angel of the Lord appeared to his mother and said,"You are sterile and childless,but you are going to conceive and have a son.Now see to it that you drink no wine or other fermented drink and that you do not eat anything unclean,because you will conceive and gave birth to a son.No razor may be used on his head,because the boy is to be a Nazirite,set apart to God from the birth,and he will begin the deliverance of Israel from the hands of the Philistines".
But Samson violated the God's rules and Committed to the sin.All born again,baptized and spirit filled children of God represents the Samson in the Old testament. Samson committed to sin and the Lord was departed from him.Same way we committed to the sin Our saviour Jesus departed from us.
Finally Samson repented and prayed to the almighty Lord.The Lord answer his prayer in Judges 16:29-30.
Samson's name mentioned in the faith warrior's list (Hebrew 11:32)

Hell

There are two descriptions of hell in the Bible. One is of a burning fire. Jesus often used the word GEHENNA to describe hell. Gehenna was the refuse dump outside Jerusalem that was always on fire. Jesus said hell was a place of worms, maggots, fire, and trouble. From that we get the image of a lake of fire and the concept of perpetual burning. The evil ones there are full of remorse and torment (see Mark 9:43-48).
Jesus also said that hell would be "outer darkness." He said that some in His day "will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matthew 8:12, see also Matthew 22:13). Here the image is one of terrible loneliness. There will be separation from God and man. Those who are consigned to hell will be put out into the inky blackness of eternity, with nobody to turn to, nobody to talk to, and they will be constantly alone. They will suffer the remorse of knowing they had the opportunity to come into heaven with God but turned it down.
The Bible speaks of a lake of fire reserved for the devil and his angels (see Matthew 25:41). Human beings were never intended to go into hell. But the ones who choose to reject God will one day follow Satan right into hell.
There will be no exit from hell, no way out, no second chance. That is why it is so important in this life to receive the pardon that God extends to all men through the cross of Jesus Christ.

Eternity

Eternal life in heaven is received through knowledge of God, the Father, and is contained in His Son, Jesus Christ. We obtain this gift of life through salvation which God offers to all by the death and resurrection of His Son. When Jesus was massacred, beaten, humiliated, and crucified, the penalty for our sins was fully paid and we were given the opportunity to be reconciled to God. We receive this privilege by simply believing; God extends life to us when we have faith in what His Son, Jesus accomplished on the cross. 

This life begins at the moment we believe. We are immediately transformed into new creations and a new existence, now lived in fellowship with God, begins. This is the origin of the Christian's eternal life; we now have the presence of God with us at all times to guide us and direct us and help us to live according to the new standards and principles found in His Word. 

But what will eternal life be like? Although this life begins in the present and is blessed by God, we are still living on the earth and subject to earthly hardships, sorrows and disappointments. We take refuge in the presence of God while the promises in His Word comfort and sustain us. But this life that we have obtained is everlasting. It will extend beyond the boundaries of this earthly existence, indeed beyond time and the grave. So while we may suffer adversity here and now as foreigners in a strange country, we have hope of a better day. 

Yes, Christians suffer as foreigners in a strange land because our new existence is lived in contrast to those around us who continue to live in darkness without the life of Christ. The apostle Paul fully understood this, for he writes in his letter to the Corinthians, "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable" (1 Corinthians 15:19). 

But our hope is not only in this life; we look forward to the time when we will live unencumbered by our mortal bodies and life's untoward circumstances. Eternal life in its ultimate fulfillment will be lived in the joyous presence of the living God, forever. We will be transformed into beings that are immortal and incorruptible; no longer need we fear sickness, pain or death. Even greater than this is the expectation of being like the Son, an unimaginable concept, but yet the truth offered to us in God's Word. "Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is" (1 John 3:2). 

Eternal life for the believer is the glorious, endless experience of our inheritance that we share with Jesus Christ, for we are "joint heirs" with Christ. We shall live for all eternity to reign as kings and priests, finally worthy to behold the face of the God. And, as the Apostle John concluded, "Everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure" (1 John 3:3
).

Godly Marriages in Bible

1) Adam and Eve
When God created Eve and presented her to Adam, Adam exclaimed: "This time, bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh! This one shall be called 'woman,' for she was taken from man" (Genesis 2:23. Spontaneously saying "this time," he expressed his delight and emotional arousal -- his love at first sight -- for his newfound mate.
2) Rebecca and Isaac
Before Rebecca even saw Isaac, she had agreed, with devotion and self-sacrifice, to be betrothed to him. On her way to meet him, she saw a man approaching in the field and knew intuitively that it must be him. She experienced such intense emotions of love at her first sight of him that she nearly fell off her camel. By virtue of having so completely bound herself to him beforehand, her soul was able to recognize (know) him as her true soul mate even before they had formally met.
3) Jacob and Rachel
In Kabbalah, the couple that more than any other personifies the love between GoIsrael -- and exemplifies, as well, the ideal state of manifest love between husband and wife -- is Jacob and Rachel, whose relationship is also the Torah's prototypical example of romantic love.
Like Isaac, Jacob knew that he was going to marry his relative's daughter. When he arrived at the well near Haran, the shepherds told him that the approaching maiden was Rachel, his uncle Laban's daughter. His love at first sight enabled him to single-handedly roll back the boulder covering the well at which the shepherds watered their flocks, in order to let Rachel's flocks drink. And he cried, for he sensed that he would not merit to be buried with her (Rashi on Genesis 29:11 and that there would be difficulties and delays before they could marry.
However, his da'at was not complete enough to be immune to deception. He knew only that he was coming to marry one of Laban's daughters; since he did not know which, his psychological preparation was conditional. Therefore Laban was able to deceive him by giving him Leah first, in place of Rachel. Despite the intensity of his love for Rachel, on his wedding night he did notknow whom he was marrying.
In both of these cases (2 and 3), the parties were psychologically prepared to meet their soul mates, so events proceeded relatively smoothly. Psychological preparation for an event serves as a mental "guard" or protective shield, which controls and directs the intense emotions of the heart.

Nick Vujicic, Born Without Arms and Legs, Inspires Millions

Nick Vujicic may have been born without limbs, but in the wicked-sense-of-humor department, he's blessed. "Kids are curious about me," Vujicic tells PEOPLE with a laugh. "Whenever they come up and ask, 'What happened?' I tell them, 'Cigarettes.'" 

For the past 15 years, the Australian-born Vujicic, whose lack of arms and legs is the result of an extremely rare congenital condition called Tetra-amelia syndrome, has used his humor and faith to inspire millions of people. The 32-year-old motivational dynamo now jets around the globe, speaking to packed stadiums of 100,000, meeting with world leaders and writing bestselling books. 

"My message," says Vujicic, who contemplated suicide as a child, "has always been love yourself, dream big, don't give up and hope is everything." 

An evangelical Christian who first started sharing his charismatic message with audiences when was 17, Vujicic grew up hoping he'd one day find love, but constantly wondered, "Who would want to marry me?" His latest memoir, Love Without Limits
, answers that question, chronicling his relationship with Kanae Miyahara, 26, whom he married in 2012, and his journey to fatherhood. 

"My wife is my miracle," says Vujicic, who lives in Los Angeles. When he's not touring the world he can often be found towing his 20-month-old son, Kiyoshi, (in a trailer) behind his motorized wheelchair – which he controls using a joystick he operates with the two toes on his lower torso. 

Equally miraculous for Vujicic these days is the feeling he gets when his young son wraps his tiny arms around him and squeezes tight. "There's nothing better than a hug," he says. "For me, it's a feeling of joy, completeness, a full circle for someone who once had no hope."

God's Will

Jesus said that His true relations are those who know and do the Father’s will: “Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother” (Mark 3:35. In the parable of the two sons, Jesus rebukes the chief priests and elders for failing to do the will of the Father; specifically, they “did not repent and believe” (Matthew 21:32). At its most basic, the will of God is to repent of our sin and trust in Christ. If we have not taken that first step, then we have not yet accepted God’s will.

Once we receive Christ by faith, we are made God’s children (John 1:12), and He desires to lead us in His way (Psalm 143:10). God is not trying to hide His will from us; He wants to reveal it. In fact, He has already given us many, many directions in His Word. We are to “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:1). We are to do good works (1 Peter 2:15). And “it is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality” (1 Thessalonians 4:3).

God’s will is knowable and provable. Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.” This passage gives us an important sequence: the child of God refuses to be conformed to the world and instead allows himself to be transformed by the Spirit. As his mind is renewed according to the things of God, then he can know God’s perfect will.

Knowing God’s will is sometimes difficult because it requires patience. It’s natural to want to know all of God’s will at once, but that’s not how He usually works. He reveals to us a step at a time—each move a step of faith—and allows us to continue to trust Him. The important thing is that, as we wait for further direction, we are busy doing the good that we know to do (James 4:17).

The better we get to know a person, the more acquainted we become with his or her desires. For example, a child may look across a busy street at the ball that bounced away, but he doesn’t run after it, because he knows “my dad wouldn’t want me to do that.” He doesn’t have to ask his father for advice on every particular situation; he knows what his father would say because he knows his father. The same is true in our relationship to God. As we walk with the Lord, obeying His Word and relying on His Spirit, we find that we are given the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16). We know Him, and that helps us to know His will. We find God’s guidance readily available. “The righteousness of the blameless makes their paths straight, / but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness” (Proverbs 11:5).

If we are walking closely with the Lord and truly desiring His will for our lives, God will place His desires in our hearts. The key is wanting God’s will, not our own. “Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4).
