A Message from Pastor Hugo Paciocco
Hi, my name is Hugo Paciocco and I am the pastor of CLoud Christian Church and I am glad that you are connecting with us, and on behalf of brothers and sisters at CLoud, I welcome you and your family to worship God in this place.I have a heart to know and share to everyone the Bible, the Word of God, the only Truth.
Jesus said in John 8:32 (NKJV) " And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Also in Hosea 4:6 (NKJV) in the first part of the verse God says: " My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge……."
One common word in these two verses is “knowledge”, and in the Bible, knowledge is referring to knowing God. In other words if you gain knowledge of the Truth of God in Jesus Christ throughout The Bible, the Truth shall make you free and you will be saved from destruction.
Jesus also said in Matthew 24:14 (NKJV): "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. "
Looking at the news and seeing how information is flooding the world through the advance in technology we have these days, and how the Gospel of Jesus has been preached, makes me think that the end is not far away.
We can see how God is inspiring good biblical resources through churches, radio, TV, Internet (Bible Gateway; The Word 4 Today; gotquestion.org, and many other excellent Bible teachers) and even via mobile phones now; really nobody can say “I didn’t know”.
Brothers and Sisters, it’s our responsibility to get informed if we want to have knowledge about God. Reading and studying The Bible should be a MUST to be strong spiritually and physically. That’s why I am very happy to know that together we’re going to grow in knowledge about our Lord and Saviour.
In John 1:1 we read that Jesus is the Word of God, and in Romans 10:17 (NIV) "Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ." Therefore when we read The Bible we’re hearing the Voice of Jesus saying: "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away." (Matthew 24:35 NKJV)
So, welcome and I encourage you to know the Truth in Jesus and be blessed.
Pastor Hugo Paciocco
