Christ and College Sunday, Jun 2 2013 


Praise The Lord brethren, I have been pretty quite lately I agree.

My reason being that I joined a community college about 18 months ago and am getting my AA degree in computer networking. Now that I am nearing the end of my program and am about to graduate I hope to be back in full effect blogging like never before all Glory to God.

Being in a two year community college has given me numerable opportunities to share my faith and exercise my faith while fighting the good fight. I will bring these stories and lessons to word press soon. Until I write again choose this day to be blessed and serve The Lord for He is good and His mercies endure forever!


Good Luck Fortuna Saturday, Dec 1 2012 

By Santiago Huerta Figueroa Jr.


  • Often I have heard the phrase “Good luck”, it wasn’t until recently that I stopped to think about its meaning in depth and even decided to do a little study on it.
  • Personally I have chosen not to believe in luck, chance or coincidence for that matter. As a follower of Jesus Christ I have come to rely on and trust that God is sovereign, meaning that everything happens by His primary will and secondary will. Gods primary will is for all me to be saved, and his secondary will is to allow them to parish if they refuse to repent. So in Gods secondary will, God allows men to go to hell, but dose not cause them to do so, it is in response to their choices weather they live or die. I believe nothing happens by chance.
    Where did the belief in luck originate?

    The Romans believed in the embodiment of luck as the goddess Fortuna.

    Fortuna (Latin: Fortūna, equivalent to the Greek goddess Tyche) was the goddess of fortune and personification of luck in Roman religion. She might bring good luck or bad: she could be represented as veiled and blind, as in modern depictions of Justice, and came to represent life’s capriciousness. She was also a goddess of fate: as Atrox Fortuna, she claimed the young lives of the princeps Augustus’ grandsons Gaius and Lucius, prospective heirs to the Empire.

    Her father was said to be Jupiter and like him, she could also be bountiful (Copia[disambiguation needed]). As Annonaria she protected grain supplies. June 11 was sacred to her: on June 24 she was given cult at the festival of Fors Fortuna.

      Is the phrase “Good luck” something a follower of Christ would have used in biblical times. If so it hasn’t been revealed to us in scripture. Though instead of relying on luck or our own volition, my advice is…

    James 4:15 (NLT)
    15What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.”


    Faith, Hope and Love Thursday, Nov 29 2012

    We must never lose FAITH in Jesus’ atonement for our sins, HOPE in His returning to take us home where we belong, and LOVE for Him as our God.


    Alone Tuesday, Nov 13 2012 

    By Santiago Huerta Figueroa Jr.

    The beautiful thing about the relation ship I have with God is that He truly is my best friend. I mean I have friends that I can call my best friends or even mention one of them as my best friend easily. Though even though they love God and know me pretty well they don’t know or treat me like He dose. Sometimes I wish my earthly friends would call or text me more, or that they would hold me accountable more often, but they don’t and are probably just busy being who they are or trying to get ahead and stay ahead.

    What I love about Christ is that He never puts up a front with me or leaves me confused as to what I’ve done wrong or right. If I start slipping He calls me on it quick and when I’m shinning like some good salt of the earth He lets me know with a quick ata boy in not so many words, but yes I definitely know when He’s pleased with me and that’s why or one good reason why He’s my best friend and I love Him.

    Jesus teaches and shows me things that I can’t even explain and describe to my brethren, He’s that friend that chooses to tell me things that the only way I can see it is that others just wouldn’t understand. I like it like that. Hearing the deep truths and looking at things from a totally different perspective than everyone around me at times. Even though it sets me off and alone at times, I wouldn’t have it any other way, because I’m really not alone, The Lord is with me and with you…

    God is Good Saturday, Oct 20 2012 

    By Santiago Huerta Figueroa Jr.


    Matthew 5:45 (KJV)
    for He maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

    What I’ve noticed in my walk with God is that many times as I have obeyed Gods word I have thought because I am doing something right I am being blessed or visa versa, that because I am being blessed I am doing something right.

    I have seen this in others lives as we’ll, i.e the man who is living in a adulterous relationship, but occasionally prays and reads his bible may think that his adulterous relationship is not all that bad because he’s prospering financially in the work place with good hours and profits.

    Could this be the mindset that King Solomon had with his many heathen wives. After all there had to be something he told himself to justify his actions, maybe it was “If I was that bad then why would I be so blessed.” An though King Solomon may have never said such a thing it dose appear to be his attitude in scripture.

    Something that I have determined to know is to know if my life is pleasing before God. In this endeavor I know that I can not look at whether I am being blessed or not but whether I am obeying and following Gods word in its entirety and doing my best to correct what ever issues I may be having.

    What I have learned is that God is good whether I’am or I’am not, an in that reason alone He is worthy to be praised and obeyed.


    Just Compassion Monday, Sep 17 2012 

    By Santiago Huerta Figueroa Jr.


    Matthew 20:34 (KJV)
    34So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

    If you’ve ever had time to sit and read the four Gospels of Jesus Christ you would see that in His ministry He didn’t use fancy fliers, a new type of clothing or fancy attire of any type. Jesus Christ didn’t use the latest technology or mechanisms to gain hearers and followers of His truth way and life. He didn’t need a group of the most spiritual leaders and spokesmen of that land. Not once did we ever see Him going around asking anyone for money or writing a book of His 2 commandment steps to intimacy with God.

    What Christ did have though was compassion for the lost. Jesus loved the people and healed preached taught casted out unclean spirits left and right, He rose the dead and preached in the streets. The Lord came for the outcasts not for the righteous. He had compassion.

    I think of my own ministry and God has told me “You can use fancy fliers and logos or slogans or You can use compassion.” “You can use ideas, strategies, and programs, licenses and titles or You can use compassion.” You can write a book read a new book or You can use compassion.” “You can be faithful to your church or you can be faithful to Me and use compassion.”

    We need compassion to heal, deliver and save the lost, because in compassion is the power to demonstrate the Spirit of God, for God is Love.

    Compassion is not a talent, it is not a gift or a skill, it is love for the lost wherever they are, when they are there.

    Compassion is the friend of the broken hearted…


    Jesus Born Monday, Sep 3 2012 

    By Santiago Huerta Figueroa Jr.


    Genesis 37:18-20 (KJV)
    18[And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto them, they conspired against him to slay him.] 19[And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.] 20[Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him: and we shall see what will become of his dreams.]
    In this portion of scripture we find find Joseph the son of Jacob who was the one renamed Isreal. The nation of Isreal which was Josephs father and brothers. Joseph had been given dreams from God as to what the truth was about all of them and the nation as a whole, when Joseph shared this truth the nation of Isreal, Josephs brothers refused to believe him and conspired to kill him.


    1 Samuel 16:13-14 (KJV)
    13Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah. 14[But the Spirit of the ] Lord[ departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the ] Lord[ troubled him.]

    David destined to be King, but that truth only known to him and a few Godly men. Saul still the King of the nation of Israel as David began to gain authority and influence in the country was turned against him and set the country against him to find and kill him as David fled for his life.
    1 Samuel 19:20 (KJV)
    20And Saul sent messengers to take David:

    1 Samuel 21:10-11 (KJV)
    10And David arose, and fled that day for fear of Saul, and went to Achish the king of Gath.


    Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)
    6For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder:

    Matthew 26:59 (KJV)
    59Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;


    In the life of Jesus we find nothing new from the rest of the scriptures we see a man betrayed by his brethren, yes and in fact by his nation, his country, simply for the message he brought to his people from God.

    John 20:21 (KJV)
    Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

    Luke 10:3-4 (KJV)
    3Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.


    Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV)
    18All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

    What was Written. Sunday, Jul 1 2012 

    By Santiago Huerta Figueroa Jr.


    All of the Greek New Testament originals were written in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS with no spaces and probably no punctuation, and all of the earlier manuscripts are in this style, whether on parchment or papyrus. This is because the Greek alphabet did not have punctuation until at least the II century, and there were no minscule (lower case) letters until much later.

    Greek word: pneuma =wind, breath, things which are commonly perceived as having no material substance;by extension: spirit, heart, mind, the immaterial part of the inner person that can respond to God; spirit, being: (evil) spirit, ghost, God.

      KJV STRONG:4026
      NIV STRONGEST:4460

    Matthew 5:3 (KJV)
    3Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    Matthew 10:20 (KJV)
    20For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

    The word spirit/Spirit in Mathew 5:3 and 10:20 is lowercase and then capitalized.

    In the original Greek texts it wasn’t so according to Greek scholars, so therefor the rendering of one “s” as lowercase and one “S” as capital was done by the translators at a latter time.

    In truth being that every book and letter was written in capital letters by the authors of the New Testament as they were inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT, according to this present generation the use of all capital letters in a text message, email, blog, or statement written today it’s commonly referred to as shouting.

    Psalm 47:5-6 (KJV)
    5God is gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of a trumpet.


    Like the Moon Saturday, Jun 30 2012 

    By Santiago Huerta Figueroa Jr.


    The moon reflects the Sun and is consistent in shining it’s light through the night sky upon the earth, an as the moon reflects the sun we can reflect the Son and reveal His Glory to those in darkness around us and in our lives.


    Matthew 5:16 (KJV)
    6Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    Compassion Thursday, Jun 28 2012 

    By Santiago Huerta Figueroa Jr.

    Those that we want nothing to do with personally, Jesus died that He might have a personal relationship with.

    1 Corinthians 2:16 (KJV)
    6[For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.]

    Or do we? Are we dying to personally know the lost…
