Be Fruitful for Jesus – Foundation Class – Genesis 2:1-3


Remember the Parable of the Sower


མད་ཐཱ། 13:23 – ས་བོན་ས་རྒྱུ་བཟང་པོ་ལ་འཐོར་བ་ནི་དཀོན་མཆོག་གི་བཀའ་ཐོས་ནས་རྟོགས་པའི་མི་དེ་ཡིན། འབྲས་བུ་སྨིན་ཏེ། འབྲས་བུ་ཁ་ཤས་ལྡབ་བརྒྱ་དང༌། ཁ་ཤས་ལྡབ་དྲུག་ཅུ། ཁ་ཤས་ལྡབ་སུམ་ཅུ་བཅས་སྨིན་” ཞེས་གསུངས།


Matthew 13:23 – As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”


The key to being fruitful for Jesus is “the one who hears the word and understands it“. Knowing and understanding the words of God is foundational to obedience and doing the will of God.

This lesson addresses God’s initial institution of the Sabbath rest.


བཀོད་པ 2:1-3

1དེ་ལྟར་ནམ་མཁའ་དང་ས་གཞི་དང་དེའི་ནང་ཇི་ཡོད་པ་ཐམས་ཅད་དཀོན་མཆོག་གིས་ཆ་ཚངའགྲུབ་པར་མཛད་གནང་ངོ། 2ཉིན་བདུན་བར་དུ་དཀོན་མཆོག་རང་ཉིད་ཀྱིས་ཕྱག་ལས་གནང་བ་ཐམས་ཅད་འགྲུབ་པར་མཛད་དེ། དེ་ཉིན་ངལ་གསོ་གནང་བར་བཞུགས་སོ། 3ཁོང་གིས་ཉིན་བདུན་པ་དེ་བྱིན་གྱིས་རླབས་ཤིང་དེ་ལ་དམིགས་བསལ་གྱི་ཉིན་ཞེས་དབྱེ་བ་གནང་ངོ་། གང་ལ་ཟེར་ན། ཉིན་དེ་ཁོང་རང་གིས་བཀོད་པའི་ཕྱག་ལས་ཐམས་ཅད་འགྲུབ་པར་མཛད་དེ་ངལ་གསོ་གནང་བར་བཞུགས་པའི་ཕྱིར་རོ།


Genesis 2:1-3

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2 And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. 3 So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation.


These words in Genesis 2 that God “rested from all his work” is not liken to what human do as work and labor which results in physical fatigue and our body condition show signs of exhaustion and we need to stop labor.

This “God rested from all his work” signify the completion of His creation and transformation on Earth, including the laying of foundations and laws how things should function and be productive, to ensure a livable condition for all living creatures.

God created the earth environment to function and provide sustenance for all living creatures and Man was to be a care-taker. God provided all that is needed for survival and reproductions of all living creatures.

The Sabbath day rest was instituted from the time of Genesis and it teaches us


1) to honor God as creator and owner over His creations.

2) our dependency on God for provision and protection

2) our obligation to find rest in God as God rested

3) a complete state of rest in the presence of God

4) a practice of sanctification and holiness as God commanded


The commandment to rest on Sabbath was repeated in Exodus when God gave His words and commandment through Moses when establishing His covenant with that generation of Israel leaving Egypt and preparing them to enter The Promised Land.

Note – God said to remember the Sabbath

Exodus 20:8-11

8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates. 11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.


The commandment to rest in God is important because restlessness have become a worldwide human problem. Restlessness due to anxiety for survival is pervasive among people regardless of race and nationalities across the world.

Today we are living in an environment saturated with human strive and conflicts related to limited resources and scarcities of supplies. Human struggle for survival is rooted primarily in being separated from our dependency on God for provision and protection. Trying to survive on our own without God’s blessing and covering.

Wars and conflicts across the world throughout the history of human civilization due to resources are rooted in human greed and unequal distribution. Even in times of natural disaster God have shown in the example of Joseph in Egypt how government management could help resolve human needs for basic food and survival.

Environmental pollution today that damage food sources are due to human error and mismanagement. We should know the industrial revolution had done more damage to Earth then what politicians promised as “improve lives and help economy”. Across the world our human lives did not actually improves due to human interventions and political control. In fact human interventions and political control had led to more conflict and unequal food distributions.

If we human had listened to God and continue to live in obedience to God’s words the Earth environment would have been very different today.


གསུང་མགུར 24:1 – འཛམ་བུ་གླིང་དང་དེའི་ནང་ཇི་ཡོད་ཀུན། གཙོ་བོ་དཀོན་མཆོག་རང་གི་ཡིན་པ་དང་།

ས་གཞི་འདི་དང་དེའི་ནང་གནས་པ་ཀུན། གཙོ་བོ་དཀོན་མཆོག་རང་ཉིད་གི་ཡོན་ནོ།


Psalm 24:1 – The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein,


God provided that we may find rest in Him!

We should know only in a situation of peace we can find rest. And for that perfect satisfying peace and rest we need to be in the presence of God. And the path to the presence of God is in our acts of obedience to His words.

Scripture have a long list of reference about rest in God because we are to find rest in God and many failed to find proper rest in God. So we are going to be looking into scriptures and change our priorities of life so that we may find proper rest in God


སྡེབ་ཐོན 33:14 – དེ་ནས་གཙོ་བོ་དཀོན་མཆོག་གིས་བཀའ་གནང་བ། ང་ཁྱོད་དང་མཉམ་དུ་འགྲོ་ཞིང་ཁྱོད་ལ་རྒྱལ་ཁ་སྤྲོད་རྒྱུ་ཡིན།


Exodus 33:14 – And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”


From the time of Moses when God gave His laws and commandments to the children of Israel it was already revealed to them the key to finding rest in God is in His presence. Therefore the Torah (the writings of Moses) teaches about separation and division, sanctification and holiness, God’s covenant and obligations, God’s provision of atonement, forgiveness and cleansing, in order for Man to seek the peace and presence of God.

If God did not provide atonement for our sin we will not be able to draw near to God. But God did provide the means for us to seek Him and to be in His presence.

One must seek the presence of God through obedience and repentance. Jesus taught about obedience and repentance.


ཡེར་མི་ཡཱ 31:25 – ངས་ཐང་ཆད་པ་རྣམས་ལ་སངས་པར་བྱེད་ཅིང་ལྟོགས་ནས་སྐྱོ་པོ་ཡོད་པ་ཚོར་ཟས་ཀྱིས་ཚིམ་པར་བྱ་རྒྱུ་ཡིན་ནོ།


Jeremiah 31:25 – For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish.”


The result of finding rest and peace in God is that our soul gets replenished.

Many people across the world suffer from fatigue – mental and spiritual fatigue – and it is a growing social problem. Depression is becoming a common illness.

It is the will of God for our souls be replenished and that we have peace of minds.


གསུང་མགུར 3:5 – ང་ས་ལ་ཕབ་ནས་ཉལ་བ་ཡིན། མཚན་གང་གཙོ་བོ་དཀོན་མཆོག་གིས་ང་ལ་སྐྱབས་གནང་ངོ་།


Psalm 3:5 – I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.


Insomnia – a condition of sleep disorder when a person has difficulty falling to sleep after getting to bed – is becoming more common across the world. Many have sort medications and all sorts of therapy to get a good sleep. The very few who did found help soon realize their relive are temporary. Many continue to suffer chronic insomnia and their mental health suffer.

It is the will of God for us to have a good sleep and be at peace with Him.


གསུང་མགུར 4:8 – ང་ནི་ཞེ་བདེའི་ངང་དུ་གཉིད་ཉལ་སྐབས། ཀྱེ་གཙོ་བོ་དཀོན་མཆོག་ཁྱེད་ཉིད་གཅིག་པུ་ཡིས།



Psalm 4:8 – In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.


The lack of peace, safety, and security can disrupt our sleep. But when we learn to trust God we learn to rest under His protection and provision and be in the state of peace with God.


གསུང་མགུར 116:7 – ང་ཡི་སེམས་ཉིད་ཁྱོད་ནི་བློ་ཁལ་པོ་བྱོས་ཞིག།



Psalm 116:7 – Return, O my soul, to your rest; for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.


Wondering souls find no rest. Being separated from God because of sin and disobedience can cause a person to wonder aimlessly and deprive our souls of having proper rest in God. Therefore this message is a call for repentance and turning back to God.


གསུང་མགུར 127:1-2

1གཙོ་བོ་དཀོན་མཆོག་ཁོང་གིས་ཁང་ཁྱིམ་མ་བཟོས་ན། ཁང་བཟོ་པ་ཡི་ལས་རྣམས་དོན་མེད་ཡིན།



2སྔ་དྲོ་ལངས་ནས་མཚན་མོ་ཕྱི་པོར་ཉལ། དེ་བཞིན་འཚོ་ཕྱིར་ངལ་རྩོལ་དོན་མེད་ཡིན།

གང་ལགས་ཟེར་ན་གཙོ་བོ་དཀོན་མཆོག་གིས་གཅེས་པར། ཉལ་སྐབས་དེ་ཚོར་མཁོ་ཆས་ཆ་ཚང་གནང་།


Psalm 127:1-2 – A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon. Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep.


Societies and nations driven by human greed and covetousness have caused many to work beyond their limits without satisfaction. Today we often hear of constructions projects gone bankrupt and workers laid off. Labor unions and workers go on strike and more endless problems. Our living environment is in chaos due to human mismanagement and excessive constructions.

When will human stop meaningless constructions?


མད་ཐཱ། 11:28-30

28དཀའ་སྡུག་ཆེན་པོ་མྱོང་བ་དང་ཁུར་བོ་ལྕི་མོས་མནན་ཡོད་པ་ཐམས་ཅད་བདག་གི་དྲུང་དུ་ཤོག༌དང༌། བདག་གིས་ཁྱོད་རྣམས་ལ་ངལ་གསོ་སྟེར་བར༌བྱའོ།། 29བདག་གི་གཉའ་ཤིང་ཁུར་ལ་བདག་ནས་སློབས༌དང༌། བདག་ནི་གཤིས་རྒྱུད་འཇམ་ཞིང་སྙེམས་ཆུང༌ཡིན། དེ་ལྟར་བྱས༌ན། ཁྱོད་རྣམས་ཀྱི་སེམས་སུ་ངལ་གསོ་འཐོབ་ངེས༌ཡིན། 30རྒྱུ་མཚན་ནི་བདག་གི་གཉའ་ཤིང་བདེ་ཞིང་ངའི་ཁུར་བོའང་ཡང་ངོ་ཞེས་གསུངས༌སོ།།


Matthew 11:28-30

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”


Jesus was preaching to people who had been through wars and conflict, wearied and tired, and seeking for eternal rest in God. But notice Jesus said to take up His yoke instead of just lay back and relax.

This yoke Jesus speaks of is referring to His teaching and practice of obedience to God. How Jesus trusted the Father and lived within the provision and protection of God the Father.

Jesus is teaching us to find true rest in God by turning away from the worldly human ideology of living without the provision and protection of God and to live in trust and obedience to the laws and teachings of God.


ཨིབ་རི་པ། 4:9-10

9དེས་ན་དཀོན་མཆོག་གིས་རང་གི་མི་རྒྱུད་ཀྱི་ཆེད༌དུ། ངལ་གསོ་ཞིག་བསྐྱུར་ཡོད་པ་ཤེས་ནུས་ལ། 10ཁོང་གི་ངལ་གསོ་ནང་དུ་ཞུགས་མཁན་ཡིན༌ན། དཀོན་མཆོག་གིས་རང་གི་འཕྲིན་ལས་ཐམས་ཅད་ནས་ངལ་གསོ་མཛད་པ་བཞིན། རང་གི་དོན་རྣམས་སྒྲུབ་མཚམས་བཞག་སྟེ་ངལ་གསོ་བྱས་པ་ཡིན༌ནོ།།


Hebrews 4:9-10

So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.


This message from Hebrews is speaking of Sabbath


A) as our weekly observation to rest in the Lord as according to His commandment

B) in seeking the presence of God through sanctification and practice of holiness through observation of the Sabbath

C) our future eternal rest in the presence of God in His kingdom


We are to practice observation of the Sabbath to honor God as creator and owner over His creations.

Observation of the Sabbath is an act of faith about our dependency on God for provision and protection.

Keeping the Sabbath is believers’ practice of sanctification and holiness as God commanded.

We may be living in a world of turmoil, political chaos, but through faith in God’s words we can practice obedience to God and let God show us the path to peace and rest in Him.

Be Fruitful for Jesus – Foundation Class – Genesis 1:26-27


Remember the Parable of the Sower


མད་ཐཱ། 13:23

ས་བོན་ས་རྒྱུ་བཟང་པོ་ལ་འཐོར་བ་ནི་དཀོན་མཆོག་གི་བཀའ་ཐོས་ནས་རྟོགས་པའི་མི་དེ་ཡིན། འབྲས་བུ་སྨིན་ཏེ། འབྲས་བུ་ཁ་ཤས་ལྡབ་བརྒྱ་དང༌། ཁ་ཤས་ལྡབ་དྲུག་ཅུ། ཁ་ཤས་ལྡབ་སུམ་ཅུ་བཅས་སྨིན་” ཞེས་གསུངས།


Matthew 13:23

As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”


The key to being fruitful for Jesus is “the one who hears the word and understands it”. Knowing and understanding the words of God is foundational to obedience and doing the will of God.

This lesson address our human history as God revealed in scripture truth and not what the world is promoting as scientific theory of evolution by natural selection.

Man was a unique creation of God as all the other living creatures were also created by God


བཀོད་པ 1:26-27

26  དེ་ནས་དཀོན་མཆོག་གིས་ཉ་རྣམས་དང་། བྱ་རྣམས་དང་། ཁྱིམ་ནང་གི་སྒོ་ཕྱུགས་ཆེ་ཚུང་ཆང་མ་དང་ནགས་ཀྱི་གཅན་གཟན་རྣམས་ལ་དབང་བྱེད་པའི་ཕྱིར་ང་ཚོའི་དབྱིབས་དང་འདྲ་བ་མིའི་རིགས་ལ་བཟོ་བར་བྱ་ཞེས་གསུངས་སོ།  27  དེ་ལྟར་དཀོན་མཆོག་གིས་མིའི་རིགས་ལ་ཉིད་ཀྱི་དབྱིབས་ལྟར་མི་ཕོ་མོ་གཉིས་བཀོད་དོ།


Genesis 1:26-27

26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.


Genesis chapter one revealed the creations of livings creatures and Man by God here on Earth. What set Man apart from all other created living creatures –


1) created in the image of God to reflect God’s character. Human are not mini gods but designed and created with the ability to function with knowledge and understanding of the righteousness, truth, and justice of God, reflecting the character of God in our life.

2) created with ability to communicate through vocal speech. Man was designed and created with the ability to talk and communicate with God and fellow humans through recognizable speeches. The two recorded incident of animal talking – the serpent talking to Eve (Genesis 3:1) and the donkey talking to Balaam (Numbers 22:30) were abnormal, something not supposed to happen by their own ability as they were crated to function.

3) created to be God’s appointed steward to manage the well-being of Earth’s living environment. It is very sad and sobering to know that our living environment on Earth today is saturated with pervasive lack of peace and human strive, unjust violence and reckless bloodshed, not according to what was created to be. The world today is heading towards being more chaotic and overflow of spiritual darkness and the root of it all is in human’s acts of sin against the words and teaching of God revealed in Scripture. Man was created to uphold and promote God’s righteousness, truth and justice, but sin against God crippled our ability to obey God.


To know our true human history, our root and origin, is fundamental to our daily living today and our future.

If Man continues the path of sin we are all heading for eternal death and destruction. But if we consider what we did wrong against God our creator and repent of our sin and learn to walk in obedience to God’s word there is hope of redemption and restoration to eternal life and blessing with God.


The Apostle Paul taught on the same principle


རོ་མཱ་པ། 14:8

བདག་ཅག་འཚོ་ན་གཙོ་བོའི་དོན་དུ་འཚོ༌ཞིང༌། ཤི་ནའང་གཙོ་བོའི་དོན་དུ་ཤི་བ་ཡིན༌པས། བདག་ཅག་ནི་ཤི་གསོན་གང་ཡིན་ཡང་གཙོ་བོའི་མི་ཡིན་ནོ།།


Romans 14:8

For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.


Paul was teaching the believers and disciples of Jesus to live according to the righteousness and justice of God revealed in scripture.

Those who believe in the evolution of Man from Ape rejected any accountability to God and therefore have no regards to the words and teachings of God.

Genesis 1:1 taught us about our first foundational faith in God as creator and owner. And Genesis 1:26-27 revealed to us our unique creation as God created us to function.

Scripture truth teaches us accountability to God with the expected reward of blessing through obedience and judgement because of disobedience.

We were created with obligation to serve God and obey His words. Jesus also taught about the importance of doing obedience to God’s words.

John 14:15-24

15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.

18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 21 Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.” 22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, “Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?” 23 Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.


In brief Jesus was talking about our duty and responsibility to obey God’s teachings and commandments.

God created Man to obey His words and the quality of our relationship with God is based on our acts of obedience to His words.

Man because of sin and disobedience became separated from the presence of God. Human relationship with God was broken due to disobedience.

Jesus as God’s appointed Messiah is teaching and leading us back to fellowship with God through obedience. Jesus is helping restore our human relationship with God through our acts of obedience.

The key to being fruitful for Jesus is “the one who hears the word and understands it”. Knowing and understanding the words of God is foundational to obedience and doing the will of God.

This lesson starts with our foundational faith in God as creator


བཀོད་པ 1:1 ཐོག་མར་དཀོན་མཆོག་གིས་ནམ་མཁའ་དང་འཛམ་གླིང་བཀོད་དུས།


Genesis 1:1 – In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.


There are lots of scientific debates about the origin of the universe and earth but Genesis 1:1 simply declares God as creator.

In our world of persistent human quest for scientific discovery, mathematical calculation, technical details, people are not satisfied with this one short verse in Genesis 1:1 that simply declares God created the heavens and the earth.

The authorship of Moses is also being disputed but historical facts do proof the credibility of Moses’ writing.

What made Moses a real person with divine authority was the mass exodus of the people of Israel from Egypt that left Egypt a devastated nation. God executed His judgement against Pharaoh and revealed His redemption power for the seeds of Abraham of the line of Isaac and Jacob in one single monumental event in human civilization. And the institution of the Passover when Israel left Egypt was also prophetic of the Lamb of God who sacrificed Himself to redeem people from sin and death.

That generation of Israel who left Egypt witnessed the power and glory of God and they all heard God spoke to Moses when he went up Mount Sinai to meet with God.

16 It came to pass on the third day when it was morning, that there were thunder claps and lightning flashes, and a thick cloud was upon the mountain, and a very powerful blast of a shofar, and the entire nation that was in the camp shuddered.

17 Moses brought the people out toward God from the camp, and they stood at the bottom of the mountain.

18 And the entire Mount Sinai smoked because the Lord had descended upon it in fire, and its smoke ascended like the smoke of the kiln, and the entire mountain quaked violently.

19 The sound of the shofar grew increasingly stronger; Moses would speak and God would answer him with a voice.

20 The Lord descended upon Mount Sinai, to the peak of the mountain, and the Lord summoned Moses to the peak of the mountain, and Moses ascended.


Genesis 1:1 is a declaration not explanation about the origin of heavens and earth.

All of the heavens and Earth were brought into existence by God and how did God actually do it not disclosed not revealed explicitly.

The short precise message of Genesis 1:1 has a dual purpose

1) to declare God’s power and ownership over His creations and

2) to cause division and separation between people who accept God’s ownership and those who reject.

God’s redemption is based on His selection which is based on the response of those who believe and obey His words.

Genesis 1:1 is the beginning of a person’s foundation of faith in God as creator and owner and that means Man’s response to accept duty and accountability to God. This first foundational stone of our faith in God will help to set our path and vision of life clearly in living a life of obedience to God.


Jesus spoke of the same kind of division because of His words and teachings


མད་ཐཱ། 10:34-36

34 ང་ནི་ས་ལ་ཞི་བདེ་སྐྱེལ་བར་ཡོང་བ་ཡིན་མ་སོམས་ཤིག ཞི་བདེ་སྐྱེལ་བར་མ་ཡོང་གིས། རལ་གྲི་སྐྱེལ་བར་ཡོང༌།

35 བུ་དང་ཕ་གཉིས་མ་དང་བུ་མོ་གཉིས།།



36 མི་ཞིག་སོ་སོའི་དགྲ་བོ་གང་ཡིན་པ།།


Matthew 10:34-36

34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household.


This message by Jesus caused great discomfort for those who listened to Him preach. Believers and disciples today are just as perplexed. Non-believers find this shocking and horrifying.

Jesus was not carrying a physical sword to threaten His followers but he was actually talking about sword.

Prophets of God like Isaiah and Jeremiah had also spoken of “sword” in their warnings against rebellious behavior in breaking covenant with God and they are talking about judgement of God.

So the sword in Jesus’s message is clearly referring to His words and teachings which will cause divisions and separations among His disciples who will obey and those who reject.

When Jesus preaches repentance there is the expectation to obey in order to receive forgiveness and to enter the kingdom of God and many rejected His teachings because they don’t think they need to do their acts of repentance.


The Apostle Paul warned us of the same problem –

ག་ལད་ཡཱ་པ། 6:7-9

7རང་མགོ་རང་གིས་གཡོག་མི༌རུང༌། དཀོན་མཆོག་ལ་འཕྱ་དམོད་བྱ་མི༌རུང༌། རྒྱུ་མཚན་ནི་མིས་ས་བོན་གང་ཞིག་བཏབ་ན་འབྲས་བུའང་དེ་འབྱུང་བའི་ཕྱིར༌རོ།། 8སུ་ཞིག་གིས་ཤ་གཟུགས་ཀྱི་ཕུང་བོ་ལ་བསྟུན་ནས་ས་བོན་བཏབ་ན། ཤ་གཟུགས་ཀྱི་ཕུང་བོ་ལས་འཇིག་པའི་འབྲས་བུ་འབྱུང༌ལ། སུ་ཞིག་གིས་དམ་པའི་ཐུགས་ཉིད་ལ་བསྟུན་ནས་ས་བོན་བཏབ་ན། དམ་པའི་ཐུགས་ཉིད་ལས་མཐའ་མེད་པའི་ཚེ་སྲོག་འཐོབ་ངེས༌སོ༎ 9བདག་ཅག་གིས་དོན་བཟང་པོ་གང་ཞིག་བྱེད་ནའང་ཡིད་ཕམ་མི་རུང༌སྟེ། ཡིད་མ་ཕམ་ན་དུས་གང་ཞིག་སླེབས་པ་དང་འབྲས་བུ་དེའང་ལེན་ཐུབ།


Galatians 6:7-9

7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.


After Jesus death and resurrection only those who fully believed and obey were gathered to Him and they were in the minority. And the records of Acts (Acts 1:14-15) show only about 120 were gathered together in prayers.

What happened to those thousands and large crowds who came after Jesus for healings and miracles?


The words of God revealed in scripture will cause division and separation.

The teachings and preaching of Jesus will cause division and separation.

Genesis 1:1 – the very first statement in the first book of the Bible already caused widespread and worldwide division and separation till today people are still arguing and debating over it even among those who claimed to be Christian.

Genesis 1:1 is the beginning of a person’s foundation of faith in God as creator and owner and this first foundational stone of our faith in God will help set our path and vision of life to live in obedience to God.
