Thank you!




 Happy Thanksgiving! 

Thanking God is not base in what we received, but in How We Give Him back what is due to Him.

 In giving, it's the attitude of the Heart that matters!  

Giving with the right heart is always rewarded with the fullness of Joy! 

Give thanks to the Lord, for it is the will of God in Christ Jesus.

Christ is the Coming King on His Second Advent. Be watchful and vigilant!


 20But the fact is, Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. 21For since by a man death came, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 23But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, 24then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to our God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. 25For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 26The last enemy that will be abolished is death. 27For He has put all things in subjection under His feet. But when He says, “All things are put in subjection,” it is clear that this excludes the Father who put all things in subjection to Him. 28When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all.

Rose from the dead and the First fruits of those who died ..

He is the Resurrection and the life

There is and order and own order.

Then end of the age will take place.

A turned over of the kingdom to God the Father.after abolishing All rule and All authority

To reign until he put all His enemies on His feet.and all in subjection to Him.

When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all. 

The last enemy to be defeated is Death!

Something to consider, but will you ignore and refuse? " the bleating of the Sheep".

            The Judgement, Matthew 25: 31 46. (NASB)

31 "But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. 
32 "All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 
33 and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left. 
34 "Then the King will say to those on His right'Come, you who are blessed of My Fatherinherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 
35 'For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 
36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.' 
37 "Then the righteous will answer Him, 'Lordwhen did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 
38 'And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 
39 'When did we see You sickor in prison, and come to You?' 
40 "The King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent * that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.' 
41 "Then He will also say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 
42 for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 
43 I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.' 
44 "Then they themselves also will answer'Lordwhen did we see You hungryor thirstyor a strangeror nakedor sickor in prison, and did not take care of You?' 
45 "Then He will answer them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent * that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' 

46 "These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

An appeal to those who have a compassionate and sensitive hearts, to generously and freely, extend their hands to these lowly ones! 

The hands of Jesus Christ was not permanently nailed on the cross, but was resurrected, released and became an extend hands to help, heal embrace and bless! Let Christ hands be our hands to freely bless others,

A time to extend our little, but precious to the less fortunate ones to rise again from what was a great lost. 

Some will say, I have given in the past and NO need to give today. May I ask you, did God stop blessing you, if so then maybe there no intention to give, But the truth is, He never stop blessing you with more than enough even with super overflowing abundance, and with all due respect to Him who does not deprive you in giving less, but His very best. Then it's time to give your best!

Thank you for those who gave.

A reminder to keep ourselves calm by praying.


Sometimes what we want and pray, don't exactly happen the way we want it, and the opposite happens. 

Most of the time it's not the will of God. We need to submit to His will.  Isaiah 55 speaks loudly that His ways are higher that our ways His thoughts  are better and much deeper than of ours. 

Be still and know that He is God,  and don't pray against the will of God, but instead pray for His will be done. It will pacify and calm down every heart from agitation and frustration!

Prayer works and it will always be!


                             Sincere and fervent prayers never escape the attention of God. 

Psalm 91: 1-16 (KJV) 

My Refuge and My Fortress

1He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. 

It speaks of protection and safety.

Let us pray;

O God, merciful and compasionate, who art ever ready to hear the prayers  

who put their trust in thee; Graciuosly  hearken to us who call upon thee, 

and grant us to call upon thee, and grant us thy help in this our need through 

Christ our Lord. AMEN.

 (1928 Anglican prayer book)

Another storm is coming in to Philippines. We don't put our gears down but  rather stand in putting our offense in Prayer. 

There was one time, when Jesus calm down a surging storm on the sea by speaking to the storm and it calm down. Now we can calm down also by praying and speaking Jesus (God's) words by pressing hard on against any kind of storms. Mark 11: 23. 

 

Alarming!

Alarming! 

Yes, we can pray and pray, but it we don't act and do something about it will balloon to uncontrollable level. Please don't get us wrong we fervently praying.But prayer with faith must be coupled with corresponding action!

We are learning as a country and as a church. Our journey has just begun. Learning as an independent country and church. The road may be rough and hard and even much harder, but the grace of God fuel us to row more and more harder, persevere and run the race for victorious winning! God bless the Philippines!

Prayers that brings results in time like this.

 I was encouraged much with Christians setting aside some of their personal time for prayers, pleading, in bringing down the spread of this killing virus. One said 'kill the virus"  if you kill the virus, you kill the people that carries the virus. Surely those who will not be able to survive will end up to early death. We hope and believed that there will be vaccines that will neutralized the effect of this Pandemic.

I believed in the powerful effect of prayers. But our prayers should be aimed to specific target, intention and desire.

First people need to follow a specified health protocols to lessen the effect and reduce the fatalities and contamination.

In South East Asia the Philippines is ranking now to have the highest record of numbers of infected. Together let us reduce the effect by praying and putting our  actions accordingly.

Put muscle to violators who take for granted the law and allow them to pay the consequences. Why are there so much violation even rebellion because authorities are soft, tolerant and they themselves are the violators and this weakens the law. The law should be enforce strongly well.  Yung sa iba pangulat lang! But when it comes to implementation, zero!. Kala ko ba, kamay na bakal?! Eh Kamay na bakla yata! The effect of prayers is good action and a change for better and the best.

Another thing is Unity must be fueled by obedience in the community and that every constituent submits and must follow the rules. Correct instructions must be followed accordingly and firmly implemented.

I was wondering, if we are called really the Christian Nation in the Orient manifestation should always follows. There was this saying in the scriptures, that these signs and wonders will follows those who believed... In my name they cast out demons .... Because there was no wonders and signs, it is but obvious that there was no believing that happened at all. Cause and effect!

If  Christianity was the majority and  biggest religion here in the Philippines. It will be easy to call people to work together in Unity, because we are Christians! Please give attention to these;  " Endeavouring to keep the Unity of the spirit in the bond of Peace;  There is One body and One Spirit even as ye are called  in One Hope of your calling;" One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, One God and Father of All who is ABOVE All  and through All and in you All ". (Ephesians 4: 3-6 KJV)   The truth is we have a view of divided wounded Christianity and division weakens faith and unity and demotivates passions.

If denominations would only decide to set aside personal interest, greed, vainglory, and division, then we can accomplish and conquer more and reduce the monstrous effect of this calamity and evil in this world. The sad thing is that the more denominations we have, the more division increases, and we go far backward in accomplishing the very core and foundation of Christianity and that is to SAVE and PRESERVE this planet earth, till Jesus comes. The answers to prayers is within us, it must be properly address to God and believed and acted what word of God says, with the empowerment of the Holy Spirit then manifestation will be evident!

We never stop praying because God never stops listening to prayers, and the prayer of the righteous get much of His attention, quickly!
