The Feeding of the Five thousand.

The Feeding of the Five thousand.
God is able to do exceedingly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us. Never underestimate the matchless ability of God to provide and meet every human needs, if we approach Him by Faith. He always give to the overflow, not only these people were all filled, but more was the leftovers. Please think and reflect.

Pope Francis Rewrites Catholicism … and the Bible Tue, Aug 7, 2018 •










Last week, the Vatican announced that Pope Francis had changed the Catholic catechism. After 2,000 years of teaching that a moral use of capital punishment for murder is consistent with Catholic teaching, the pope announced that the catechism, the church fathers and St. Thomas Aquinas, among the other great Catholic theologians, were all wrong.
And God and the Bible? They’re wrong, too.
Pope Francis, the product of Latin American liberation theology — along with many other Catholic religious and lay leaders — is remaking Catholicism in the image of leftism, just as mainstream Protestant leaders have been rendering much of mainstream Protestantism a branch of leftism, and non-Orthodox Jewish clergy and lay leaders have been rendering most non-Orthodox synagogues and lay institutions left-wing organizations.
The notion that it is immoral to execute any murderer — no matter how heinous the murder, no matter how many innocents he has murdered, no matter how incontrovertible the proof of guilt — is an expression of emotion, not of reason or natural law or Christian theology or biblical theology.
Regarding the latter, the biblical commandment to put premeditated murderers to death is unique.
First, it is fundamental to biblical morality. The injunction of putting murderers to death is the only law found in each one of the first five books of the Bible (the Torah).
Second, all other sins involving the death penalty were only applicable to Jews (and for thousands of years, Jews regarded those death penalties not as literal but as pedagogic — to teach the seriousness of various offenses in an attempt to create a moral and holy nation).
But the Bible makes it clear capital punishment for murder is applicable to all of humanity. It is the first law God gives Noah after the flood, after commanding him to be fruitful and multiply. Putting murderers to death is therefore the first moral law God gives the world. Why this draconian penalty for murder? Because the penalty is a statement about the seriousness of a crime, and the God of the Bible deems the wrongful, deliberate taking of a human life the pinnacle of injustice. Allowing all murderers to keep their own lives diminishes the evil of murder and thereby cheapens the worth of the human being. In God’s words, “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image” (Genesis 9:6).
It is precisely to preserve the unique worth of the human being that the Bible mandates putting murderers to death.
In 2015, Pope Francis wrote, “today capital punishment is unacceptable, however serious the condemned’s crime may have been.”
Unacceptable? To whom? It is acceptable to about half of American Catholics and about half of the American people. But it is unacceptable to the elites of our time, the people who have the most contempt for Catholicism and every other Bible-based religion.
The death penalty, Francis wrote, “entails cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment.” These are all subjective opinions. I suspect most people do not think the death penalty as punishment for premeditated murder is necessarily cruel, inhumane or degrading. What are all of us missing? And why isn’t life imprisonment cruel, inhumane and degrading? (Indeed, opposition to life imprisonment is already the norm in many progressive countries like Norway, where someone murdered 77 people, mostly children, and received a 21-year prison sentence.)
The Pope also writes that no matter how serious the crime that has been committed, “the death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person.”
Most of us think it is the murderer, by committing murder, who has attacked his dignity and inviolability, not the society that puts him to death. We also think it is the dignity of the murder victim that is attacked by rewarding the murderer with room and board, TV, books, exercise rooms and visits from family members and girlfriends.
Furthermore, why isn’t keeping a murderer in prison one day longer than is necessary to protect society an “attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person”? For that matter, isn’t every punishment an attack on the dignity of the punished? Of course it is, which is why progressives ultimately oppose all punishment, equating it with vengeance.
In the middle of the night on July 23, 2007, two men entered the Cheshire, Connecticut, home of Dr. William Petit Jr. and his family. They nearly beat Dr. Petit to death with a baseball bat. Then, one of the men raped his wife, Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and the other man sexually assaulted her 11-year-old daughter, Michaela — an assault he photographed with his cellphone. Dr. Petit managed to escape, but Hawke-Petit was strangled to death; Michaela and Hawke-Petit’s other daughter, Hayley, were tied to their beds; and the house was doused with gasoline and set on fire.
In a 4-3 decision, the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled that capital punishment violated the Connecticut Constitution, thereby preventing the execution of the murderers and assaulters of Dr. Petit’s family.
This was Dr. Petit’s reaction: “I think when people willfully, wantingly, without any remorse take someone else’s life, they forfeit their right to be among us.”
For those who believe in the Bible, Dr. William Petit of Cheshire, Connecticut, echoes God’s view. Pope Francis of the Vatican does not.

Do you see and still believe in Miracles today?



On this post Christian age more and more, people  are convinced that miracles are done and had passed away since the death of the last apostle and miracles were buried with them.

But in the time of Christ miracles took place left and right everywhere were Christ is; the lame are walking, the blind see, the deaf can hear and to the poor the Gospel is preached. 

Never in the history of Christianity, a generation experienced such glorious event in seeing this with their naked eyes. Today churches are though more on prosperity, discipleship, salvation and church growth the bigger the church  the greater the anointing is with it. We measure success by our own standard and forget the ways and standard of God. Please don't get me wrong with these.

Without  the power of miracle there would be no resurrection, victory over the power of dankness and healing. Churches are handicapped of the power to overcome and to subdue evil and darkness. Most common word within Christian world is the word Mega church, instant fixed solution for every problems and convenience. Most refuses to hear teachings on how to overcome hardships, sufferings and sacrifices. (If you are a clergy or a Pastor teaching this kind of confrontational approach, I tell you you'll get the least numbers in your congregation or even not see them next Sunday and accused you that your message are offending. If you are doing wrong and practicing evil correction will really be offending, but it will be good for you if you listen!) This was the state of mind of those people during the time of Noah before the flood, their refusal to hear and listen, they want only what they want to hear and do.

If miracles are gone then God is dead and gone. Everything will come to an end since God Is the author of life. But how come that we seldom see these today. The removal of Godly and sounds teaching weakens Churches and most are driven on relying on the strength of the flesh instead of depending on the power of the Holy Spirit. The Evil one who successfully  working through the years in making believed that Man is GOD. You will be like God knowing good and evil. But man can’t handle it alone because he is not GOD  and he needed God, then why? He was not design to take evil within himself because man was created for good after the image and likeness of God alone! 

The missing link to see a miracle is the miracle itself, it’s God!

New sex abuse allegations levied against prominent cardinal

 SARAH RANKIN,Associated Press Sat, 21 Jul 6:59 AM GMT+8 


Prayer request forwarded by my batch mate Sr. Joy V. Briones


Definitely, I will prayer and plead for God's divine intervention on this possible calamity, that is about to come. This is a wake up call for us as a church to start interceding and praying on behalf of our country the Philippines.

Flooding our altars with people fervently praying and interceding for the deliverance of our country day and night. This cannot be done by 3 minutes or 10 minutes half hearted prayers, but beyond this kind of limitation are required.
 
What really attracts calamities and destructions are SINS, ACTS WICKEDNESS, and abominable ways of the Land.
 As SIN escalates and ignored, it provokes the Anger, patience  and righteousness of God, then destructions will strike anytime.

A classic example of this
is in the Old testament every time the children of Israel OBEY  GOD they enjoy peace, prosperity and tranquility in the Land, but once the rebel, disobey, act wickedly and worship other gods calamity, plagues comes in an unimaginable degree and they fell into the hands of their enemies that slaves them.

Learning  from these scriptures that have been tough and heard in churches every now and then does not excuse us anymore, but it's an attitude problem that we have not took it in heart.

  To the Churches, this kind of urgency can not be just taken for granted, but must attentively and seriously given the priority. The book of the Prophet Joel had blown the trumpet to  extend it to the church today to call and gather the assembly consecrate a Fast and kneel, pray, repent and plead God, to spare our land! Please take time to read the Book of Joel chapters 1 to 3.

 God is calling our attention to be attentive to Him.

A reminder again, This scripture was posted several times on this webpage.
If my people who called by my Name will HUMBLE themselves and PRAY and SEEK my face, and turn from their WICKED WAYS, then I will hear from heaven and will FORGIVE their SIN and HEAL their LAND. 
2nd Chronicles 7: 14 (New King James version)

If you are a Filipino in foreign land, we ask you to please participate and help us by joining us in prayer for our country, your native land the Philippines!

Hope this will not land on deaf ears.


Salamat po doon sa nakiisa at patuloy na nanalangin wag po sana kayong magsasawa sa pananalagin.

Who is this stupid God?

As responses and comments are  flooding our society about the president calling, Who is this stupid God?  Each gave a different views and responses that became an eye opener for seekers of truth. Things and events happen with purpose.

In response to the comments coming from several religious and theologians about the word of President Rodrigo Roa Dueterte " who is this stupid God ?" First is to know to whom he was addressing this. It was to the Roman Catholic Church where he was brought up and groomed as a catholic in his younger years. He mentioned that he undergone catechism in the Roman Church and mentioned the schools he went to. But what kind of teachings and understanding he learned. Our belief is reflected and defined by what we understand and learn specially about God in the Bible. Did he really received a sound teaching from his catholic mentors, instructors and catechist? His way of reasoning is different from what the scriptures says. He said that " how can this God who created a being making them perfect temps them to destroy the quality of His work? He can't probably reconciled that though about this God.

God created man in His own image and likeness, so man must be perfect and holy BEFORE the transgression. The role of the tempter was missing which is the serpent represented by Satan who tempted Eve and gave same fruit to Adam then malice was born. Man was given the freedom to chose, it is called free will. There are three beings given this kind of freedom, God, Angels and Man. I would challenge every reader to read the whole context of Genesis 1 to 3 chapters to understand, to get my point. 

Another thing was his past wounds and scars from being MOLESTED by a HOMOSEXUAL clergy (Priest) who supposed to be a representative and example of God before his people in showing respect, holiness and manliness to young boys. Sometimes people do not consider much or being passive about the devastating effect to a person once molested, raped and abused. The pain and unforgettable, damaging and condemning effect to self  and to the victim which is ONLY GOD can heal and delete it from their souls. (Some who can't take it commit suicide and loose their minds)  It is easy to say forget about it because maybe your the one who did it, but how about the VICTIM? Who had the molestation, been abused, violated of his or her right now and that pain imprinted and invaded  his or her soul? 
This Homosexual priest who represented his GOD, the God who MOLEST, ABUSES and LIES to innocent young boys (mostly are altar boys) is a stupid God and because of his mis representation of God in making and showing God as a stupid god, and  God became stupid in the eyes of his victim. He made God stupid by his stupidity. 

Violation of the second commandment which says" thou shall not make to thyself any graven image, nor the likeness of anything in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, or in the water under the earth, thou  shall not bow down to them nor worship them......Thou shall not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain. Meaning picturing, portraying and wrong modeling of God by saying, telling and doing it to others have a devastating effect in the soul the victim not easy to forget!!!. And this act is  diabolic and demonic in it's nature and abominable before God.

My prayers is to have peace reign in both sides. It's time for the churches to look and investigate what baggage we are carrying. The scriptures speaks loudly that judgment starts in the House holds of Faith. It's our wake up call and time for cleansing and purifying ourselves before God and man. Baka nakakatisud narin po tayo. God bless!

Scriptures in Exodus quoted from the 1928 Prayer book and the King James version of the bible. 

You know where the pains of both sides are coming.
