The real superhero

I am going to blog about who the real superhero is. Who comes to mind when you think of a superhero??

Superman?? Popular fellow. Bullets bounced off of him. He leaped tall buildings in a single. And faster then a locomotive. Pretty cool but not good enough and not the superhero I'm thinking of for there is another who more powerful then him.

Spider-man?? Another popular fellow. Had superhuman strength, speed, stamina, agility, reflexes, and durability. Accelerated healing factor and an ability to cling to most surfaces. And was also able to shoot spider weds out of his wrists. And had a precognitive spider sense. Also had a genius level IQ and was a master at hand to hand combat. Pretty impressive but in my mind doesn't even come close to making the cut. For there is another who is more powerful then him.

Aqua-man?? Also a popular fellow. Had the ability to speak to sea life. Also had the ability to sense of primal emotions of aquatic creatures through telepathy which also allowed him to control creatures. Also had a sonar power which allowed him to detect things when blinded. Can also swim underwater at rates up 100mph. Could also withstand extremes of temperature and pressure. Also excels at hand-to-hand combat and has leader ship abilities. Pretty cool but I know of one more powerful then him.

Batman?? Now he's very popular. Has a very cool bat-mobile. Has an indomitable will. Also a martial arts master and weapons master. Also with a high IQ and peak human strength. But I know one who is more intelligent and more powerful then he is.

Captain America?? Interesting name. Also another popular guy. Has no superhuman powers but as a result of Super-Soldier serum he was transformed from a frail and sickly young man into a "nearly perfect" specimen of human development and conditioning. He as a strong,fast,agile and durable as possible for a human being. Has battle experience and training. His reflexes and senses are also very keen. Also he is skilled in unarmed combat and several martial arts. He also has a shield that he can throw at a great distance. Kinda cool but I know of one who is even more powerful then him.

There are many more superheros. Weather fictional or nonfictional but I know who beats them all. He didn't do what those other superhero's did but He did one thing that no superhero can ever do. His name is...Drum roll please....

Jesus Christ. The best name of all. More popular then any other superhero that has ever existed and ever will exist. He humbles the exalted and exalts the humble. When He came to this earth in the flesh people left everything they had and followed Him. He overcame this world. His perfect love casts out fear. He also casts out demons. But there is one thing He did that is the most wonderful of all. He died for YOU! Yes You! No one made Him do this He gave up His life of His own accord. He has the power to take away life and give it back again. He was whipped,beaten,teased,mocked,pushed around and was nailed to a cross. But the greatest pain of all was the separation of His Father. You see He was separated so that you wouldn't be. His Father turned away from His Son so that He could turn to you. Through the death of Jesus we have forgiveness of all past,present and future sins. But Jesus did not stay dead. On the third day He rose again and now Jesus sits in Heaven on the right hand of the Father. Jesus is the best superhero of all time. HE HAS CONQUERED THE WORLD AND CONQUERED SIN AND DEATH! Rejoice and be glad! Lift up your voice and shout praise! Life up your hands and dance! Spread this wonderful news to everyone you know!

"For GOD so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

"That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that GOD raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9

"For I am persuaded neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of GOD which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39

We are the body

This is something that suddenly popped into my head and I wrote it down and now I will share it. This is based off of 1 Corinthians 12:16-27.... Every body needs a command center. The eye needs to be told "look over there." The eye can't do this on its own. Also the eye does not say "no I will not." It just does what its told to do. The eye does not question the command. The command comes from the brain. The brain is the center of all activity that happens in the body. Whatever the body does the brain is behind it. Nothing in the body is out of the brains control. And nothing goes on in the body that the brain does not know about. We are the body. The body of Christ. We all do different things but are designed to work together as one. Just as the Holy Spirit,Jesus and the Father do different things but work as one cause He is One. Every body needs a command center. We all need to be told what to do. GOD is our command center. We must listen to Him and obey. Notice I first said listen. Listening is key. We have two ears and one mouth for a reason. We need to listen first in order to know what to do. Then once we know we must go forth and do it! Don't just sit there and hum and haw and go "what if" or "ya but." GOD will not give you more then you can handle. GOD will not give you a command that He will not help you do. Remember His grace is sufficient and His power is made perfect in weakness.

How to have a happy spectrum Easter

Well Easter is coming up very soon and so I decided to do a post on how to survive and have fun with Easter. Family might come over but don't panic. Just like on Christmas you just put on ya best smile. Be the official Easter door greater if ya want. Might be fun. Now some of your brothers or sisters or cousins might still believe in the Easter bunny and might wanna look for eggs. No harm in that. So how about the night before you help hide the eggs. When the children find the eggs the next day help them to paint them. It doesn't have to be perfect. Now as for the adults in the family you could watch some Easter movies together. My favorites are The Jesus Movie and The Robe. I dunno of any Easter movies for children but I'm sure there will be lots of specials on that day so I wouldn't worry about it. Also please check you local Church to see if they'll do any special Easter services on Good Friday or Easter Sunday or both. And on Good Friday and Easter Sunday read in the Bible of Jesus crucifixion,death and resurrection. There are also Easter songs. So please do listen to them on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. These songs are the ones I love and they are... 1.Petra. King Of Kings 2. Petra. Judas Kiss 3. Steve Green. He hold's The Keys 4. Steve Green. Enter In 5. Kari Jobe. The Revelation Song 6. Skillet. Forgiven 7. Abandon. Hero 8. Relient K. Forgiven 9. Petra. I will Celebrate/When The Spirit Of The Lord 10. Dallas Holm. Rise Again 11. Aaron Shust. My Savior, My God ....So those are the Easter songs that I recommend. That's all I can say for Easter. So have a happy spectrum Easter!

Autism and Christianity

Temple Grandin once said that people with Autism are unable to believe and understand religion in anyway shape or form. I am autistic and I am Christian and I tell you the truth that she is wrong. Just because someone is disabled doesn't mean they can't believe. My brother believes in Jesus and in GOD and he has sever autism. You see its not not people who help others to believe. Its GOD. It has always has been always will be. It takes GOD to believe in GOD. It takes GOD to learn about GOD. It takes GOD to know and understand GOD. It takes GOD to love GOD. GOD chooses the people. They never choose Him. No one seeks GOD on there own. No one ever has no one ever will. GOD chose me. I did not choose Him. I did not look for Him. Because of Him I believe. Because of GOD I love Him. GOD has no limitations. We have the limits. But we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. And don't dare say to those with special needs "if you had faith you would no longer have a disability." GOD created them and they are all fearfully and wonderfully made. GOD loves them to. GOD gave them that disability so that He will get glory in a new and different way. It's in John 9: 1 -3. It says (in New Living Translation) "As Jesus Walked along He saw a man who had been blind from birth. "Teacher" His disciples asked Him "why was this man born blind? Was it a result of his own sins or those of his parents?" ... "It was not because of his sins or his parents." Jesus answered. "He was born blind so the power of GOD could be seen in him." This is why I was born autistic or why anyone is born with whatever disability they have. GOD made me autistic. He wanted me to be so that He would get glory in a new and different way. Some people think that if someone is disabled GOD can't get through. Umm can't?? With GOD all things are possible. What is impossible for man is possible for GOD. Jesus said this. Some say it would just take to long for someone disabled to learn about the Bible. If your any sort of Christian at all then you would know 1 Corinthians 13:4 -13:8. "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy , it does not boast it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." So no the excuse it would take to long it will not do... Right now there is no special needs ministry at my Church. And for every rat you see there's 50 that you don't. There needs to be special needs Sunday school. Gluten free bread so that those who are allergic to gluten can take part in communion. For some who are either sensory seekers or sensory avoiders they might need special Sunday services. Or even those who aren't might struggle with Church services and need special services. I got nothin in mind at the moment of how it could be different so that they could take part. But I'm sure someone out there can think of something. There also needs to be something for special needs at the Celebrate Recovery's. I've seen stuff about all sorts of struggles except anything to do with struggling with any disability and havin the faith. You know that is very much a struggle. Faith and understanding of the Bible does not come easy to anyone disabled or not. That's where GOD comes in. He stands at the door and knocks. Are you gonna answer??
