CCNA R&S or Security: Choose your topic

(Photo credit- acidborg.wordpress.com)

It’s been so long we did anything technical on this blog so here goes:

This article is targeted at those who are interested in one Cisco topic or another. That’s a bit general, let’s break it down further. If you are about to take or planning to take a CCNA Routing and Switching or CCNA Security Certification exam and there’s a particular topic you would like a “training” session on, then this article is for you.

So this is how it will work: Using the Comment section, list the topic(s) you’d like more insight into. Then, the topic that gets the most “votes” would be the winner.

I’m thinking we can have a live Google hangout session, say 45 mins to 1 hour, where I’d share my screen and we’d break this topic down to the bone! Being live, you’d have the opportunity to ask questions so I guess that’s cool.

Oh no, “I can’t charge you” *in Mr Frank Donga’s voice* so it’s FREE 😀 Tapping into my good will. Lol.

Let me know. Spread the word.

Powerful Words

I recently downloaded this Bible App which allows me to read the KJV version with the concordance numbers. I can also check up the meaning of words. It looks something like this:

Bible App: MySword for Android

Bible App: MySword for Android

You may be familiar with a similar software on PCs: e-Sword.

Anyways, I was reading the Book of Luke and I got to the point of Mary’s encounter with Angel Gabriel. The angel speaking to Mary said in Luke 1:37:

“For with God nothing shall be impossible.”

When you look at the concordance, the word translated “nothing” is actually from 3 Greek words:

  • G3756: ou, which means no or not
  • G3956: pas, which means any, all, every, whole, etc
  • G4487: rhema, which means an utterance, thing spoken, word

Also, the word “impossible” is from the Greek word adunateo which means “to be unable”, “not to have strength, power, or ability, to be weak”. You know what this means? It blew my mind. Continue reading

For Jesus so loved the world that He came…

Some times, when I think about the relationship between the Persons of the Trinity, I’m in awe; of course, apart from the fact that my mind cannot fully comprehend it, but even the one I can grasp is mind blowing.

John 3:16, a Scripture many of us are familiar with, reads:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The Bible explicitly establishes that God [the Father] so loved the world that He gave His Son. But I stopped to think a few days back: what if Jesus did not come? What if He didn’t agree to come? And we know He wasn’t forced because He said in John 10:17-18 that:

“Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.”

Wow! Isn’t that wonderful? That not only does the ‘Father’ Person of the Trinity love us which made Him give, the ‘Son’ also loves us which made Him come, and finally, the Holy Spirit also loves us, which makes Him abide [in us].

Food for thought:

Of course, it is three Persons in the Trinity, yet One God but I’m glad that all the “Personalities” of God love me.

Life nugget:

Romans 8:34-37 “Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
