Why We Celebrate Easter

Easter is one of many holidays we have to celebrate. There’s also Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years and others we don’t need to mention. But the big question is, why do we celebrate Easter? It’s because Jesus died on the cross to wash away all our sins. God loves us so much that He killed His only son so we can have eternal life with Him. But Easter’s big surprise is Jesus rose from the dead!!!

Some people turn holidays that were meant to have important points into fun days. They turn Christmas into getting presents and getting; instead of giving. They turn Thanksgiving into just a big feast without thankfulness. And they turned Easter into a big egg hunt and candy! Most people do all the parties on the days but only some do what the days are really about. If you do all the fun events on Easter I want you to read this blog. It’s ok if we do the fun stuff but we should also celebrate what it’s really about.

I want you to celebrate all the special things that the days are about. Give thanks on Thanksgiving, celebrate Jesus birth on Christmas, and celebrate Jesus’ resurrection on Easter. What’s your favorite holiday? I hope to hear from you soon.

“And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.” 1 Co. 15:14

Reading the Bible

A couple Rosh Chodesh’s ago, Jesus told me to read the Bible from start to end! He said to do it in one year. I started to do it one day while my mom was working on her business. I started at Genesis 1:1, and I liked it. It took me a couple days before I got to chapter 25, 37, and stuff. After about a week or two, I made it to Exodus. I liked Exodus too; when Moses heard that the Israelites were trapped in Egypt. I read about how he got there, about the plagues, and about how they crossed the Red Sea. After a couple more chapters I made it to Leviticus. It was kind of hard getting through that one because all I was reading about was offerings and rules and stuff. After a LONG time reading that, I made it to Numbers. Unfortunately, that was the hardest one! There were even more rules and it was longer than Leviticus! I kept reading and reading, and after a while again, I made it to Deuteronomy. I like that name because it practically has my nickname in it. My parents call me Duder, and it’s called DEUTER-onomy. I like that book and I’m practically done with it. Right now I’m on Deuteronomy 28:1.

If Jesus tells you to read the Bible, it would be an exciting task. The Bible is one of the most valuable books every made; it’s also the word of God. So if you have a Bible how about you get it out and start reading. Tell me what’s your favorite book as soon as you can.

Seeing Angels

Everyday we can see our parents and people around us. We can see how beautiful and handsome people are. We can see what they’re wearing, like a fancy hat or blue jeans. Seeing is one of our five senses. We do know we have five senses: sight, taste, touch, smell, and hearing. But we don’t have 5 senses, we have six!! You might not know this one, but the sixth sense is one about God. You use the sixth sense when you use one of your 5 senses, let’s say hearing for example, to hear God. Seeing things of God is part of the sixth sense too. This blog is going to be about seeing with our sixth sense.

My brother, whose name is Naylan and is 5 years old, has seen angels before. Naylan has said he’s not afraid of seeing angels. If you ever see one, you don’t have to be afraid; they might have important messages. My brother has the power to see angels because he is willing to let God show Him whatever He needs to show him.

If you see an angel, it’s super exciting! They are really bright and they are from Heaven. This is what you should do if you see an angel that is black. Say: “Go outside! Get away from our house!” Then the bad angels (the bad angels are called demons) will leave. They’re scared of Jesus.

You can also have visions angels might be in. Like Jacob from the Bible. He saw a staircase leading up to heaven and angels going up and down with God at the top. You can also see angels in dreams. Angels are always protecting you. One of the names of God is The Lord of Angel Armies. The angel armies will protect you from the bad angels. They’ll scare them out of your house.

Seeing angels is a privilege from God; an exciting privilege indeed!

Elisha said, “Don’t be afraid. The army that fights for us is larger than the one against us.” 2 Kings 6:16

Hearing God

When we’re kids we need parents. Mostly parents talk to us; teaching us a lesson or asking what we want to eat. Parents do help us learn a lot by talking to us. But what’s really cool is when you hear from God. You can hear on Rosh Chodesh which is the new Hebrew month, we call it the new God month. We listen when it’s a new God month and we hear some real things. One time God showed me a fire in Russia and then my mom saw on facebook a minute later that 5000 people had just gotten healed in Russia!

You don’t only have to hear God on Rosh Chodesh, you can hear Him other times. When He’s talking to you He can tell you things, maybe when you’re reading the Bible or when you’re praying or just about anytime! God might tell you something very important, like if a friends in the hospital and you need to pray for him/her or God might tell you something He wants you to do.

Hearing from God isn’t just waiting for Him to tell you something, you can ask Him things. My mom, dad, brother and sister always ask Him things. And I do too. In about one or two seconds we get answers. And when you’re asleep you can also hear Him through dreams. I’ve had multiple dreams and you can too! Just keep your ears open and you might hear Him. We can do it daytime and night. Hearing God is an excellent thing, just like we hear our parents! It’s not too hard! Just keep on listening!

Tip #1- To hear from God, just ask Him and get an answer and once you hear, stick with what you have heard from Him.

Tip #2-Don’t be afraid to ask more than once.

“My own sheep will hear my voice and I know each one, and they will follow me.” John 10:27 (TPT)

Gifts from God

Have you ever tried something that you liked? When you’re little you can wish to be something; like a firefighter, a policeman, a paramedic. There’s lots of things you can think of. But when you grow up you might even change your mind; from a firefighter to a paramedic or a paramedic to a policeman. But who are you meant to be?? Ask Jesus that sometime. Maybe you wish to be something you really like, but what if God sent you out to do something that you don’t like but you’d start to like it when you just do it. Maybe He wants you to be part of the military when you wanted to be a firefighter. It’s not about what you want to be, it’s about what God wants you to be. I feel like I want to be a scientist one day, but maybe God wants me to be something else.

Even if you don’t care if God asks you to do something, He loves you and He made you, and He knows what’s best for you. God gives you gifts to help you be who He’s called you to be. I hope you already know what God wants you to be. I can’t wait to hear all about it. You can leave me a comment below.
