Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day

Who is the first Father ?As i understand there are two school of thought, one is/ are the Creationists and the other is/are the evolutionists. Briefly Creationists believe God created the first man and woman while evolutionists believe man sort of developed on its own after billions of years.

In the Holy Bible, God is first called Father by Jesus Christ. Jesus came from the bosom or chest of the Father or probably heart of the Father and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Father.

God is our Creator/ Father through Adam and Eve but satan stole us by enticing Adam and Eve to sin or disobey God, satan became then our father. Jesus came to restore us to our original Father.

According to the Bible if we turn from our sins or repent of our sins and believe in Jesus Christ God will give us the power to call Him Father, and so if we have not done that we have another father.

Now to the Father's day we celebrate at the present time, i am not sure when and where that started. I am planning to celebrate it but let's first worship and thank our Father who is in heaven. The Bible also tells us to honor our father and mother.

Caution no spare parts available

Caution no spare parts available

We live in a world where spare parts are needed like spare tires.Most of our body parts came in two's almost one is the spare of another.

Because your time is precious I will go straight to the point. We have something where we got no spare or no spare parts available. That one is our soul,  each one is given one soul. Our soul is so precious that God said as recorded in the Bible that what shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and loses his soul.

Because of sin our soul is destined to hell unless we can save it. The Bible declares that only through Jesus can we be saved.

Is your soul safe or in Jesus' safekeeping ? Sorry for the pressure but since we do not have spare for our soul, we have to make sure we know who we entrust it to. Jesus holds mine i believe, who holds yours ?

A time to weep, and a time to laugh

A time to weep, and a time to laugh

The title was taken from Ecclesiastes 3:4.After some days of rejoicing, i experienced some low energy, no power, weak days, that i thought i am being forsaken, but i am aware that God will not forsake us because of what our Lord did on the cross and because of His love.

Through prayers God showed me three things that i did wrong or lack.I often remind myself that God's love is wide, deep , and high but i had to be reminded that God's love is eternal (Psalm 136). I was asking some things from God but i also wanted some from the world. The third one was i let some ungodly thoughts enter through my eyes and did not rebuke it or them.

God restores the joy of our salvation (Psalm 51) but yes i had to repent of my shortcomings.

Renewing of our minds

Renewing of our minds

I was talking to a family friend who i knew 50 years ago and i was trying to recollect things and i realize that was the time before i became a Christian. According to the Bible, to those who believe in Jesus Christ , God gave them the power to be called children of God (John 1:12).

If you and i truly believe and receive  Jesus Christ according to John1:12 we are children of God. God has a kingdom therefore He is a King and His children are royalty.

Fellow Christians can you grasp this ? you and i are royalty. But this is too much for us for now. What is a royal mind ? A mind that thinks like Jesus.

May our minds be renewed to be like Jesus'.

God's faithfulness in Tagalog language

God's faithfulness in Tagalog language

I attended prayer meeting today and the group sung about God's faithfulness. I would like to share the lyrics to those who know the language.

Katapatan mo O Diyos tunay at Dakila

Ang pag-ibig mo'y wagas at walang kapantay

sa aming puso, sa aming buhay

Papuri't pagsamba'y iaalay

bukas, noon, ngayon, magpakailanman

luwalhatiin Ka

      Panginoon, kay buti mo sa akin

      Ikaw lamang ang tangi kong sasambahin

      Aawitan Kita at pupurihin

      Panginoon, kaybuti mo sa akin.

note: we do not know the author of this song, i do love the lyrics for the Lord.

Ang pagpunta sa langit

Ang pagpunta sa langit

Pangarap o naiisip ng sinuman na pumunta sa langit sa pagdating ng panahon. Ano nga ba ang kailangan para makapunta sa langit ? Ito ba ay sa pamamagitan ng pagiging mabuting tao o maraming " good works " ? Ito ang paniwala ko noon. Sa aking pagsasaliksik sa Bibliya ay sinasabi doon na manalig , maniwala, umasa, sundin si Jesus Christ o Hesukristo.

Hindi ba ang pagsunod kay Jesus Christ ay paggawa ng mabuti ? Opo ngunit si Jesus ang nagdadala. Para bang sa paggawa ng sariling gawa ay kahintulad sa paglalakad natin at ang maniwala kay Jesus Christ ay pagsakay sa eroplano o bapor. Nakita po ba ninyo ang kaibahan ?

Sinabi ng Panginoong Hesus sa Juan 14:6 na Siya ang daan, ang katotohanan at ang buhay. Walang makapupunta sa Ama maliban sa pamamagitan Niya.

Namatay ang Panginoong Hesus dahil sa ating mga kasalanan at dahil sa nabuhay Siyang mag-uli tayo man na naniniwala sa Kanya ay magkakaroon din ng buhay na walang hanggan.

Sana po ay ito ay nakatulong sa inyong pang-unawa patungkol sa pagpunta sa langit o sa tinatawag na kaligtasan.

Teachings of Jesus: Least of His commandments

Teachings of Jesus: Least of His commandments

Matthew 5:19 Our Lord Jesus said: Whosoever therefore shall  break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven; but whosoever shall do and teach then, the same shall be great in the kingdom of heaven.

Let's repeat that:

Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments.

and shall teach men so

he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven

but whosoever shall do and teach them

the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Teachings of Jesus: If a man love Jesus

Teachings of Jesus: If a man love Jesus

Our Lord Jesus said in John 14:23 if a man love me, he will keep my word:and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

Let us look at that again:

If a man love me

he will keep my word

and my Father will love him

and we will come unto him

and make our abode with him.

When is the best time to call on God ?

When is the best time to call on God ?

I believe the answer is all the time and any time but the problem is man is busy most of the time. Man is always on the go and busy on his and her personal business. Most of the time we give God our left over time or desperate time.

It is easy for man to be preoccupied with something other than God. But i believe less time with God gives us more headache, stress, pressure, financial woes, mood swings.

If we give God first place in our lives and do His business then He helps us with our business.

How much time we spent in prayer tells how important He is in our lives.

Christian's completeness is in Jesus

Christian's completeness is in Jesus

Another way of describing this or explaining this is by asking who is ruling our life. Before a person becomes a Christian he or she is full or ruled by himself or herself.When a person is saved or become a Christian or become born again, Jesus enters or is admitted in his or her life and we call this the new man or new nature. Our old self do not like the new self  so the  old self bullies our new nature.

Basically this struggle between the old and new nature  defines our Christian life. I believe this is a daily battle.

To win most of our battle we have to depend on Jesus and fill our lives with God's words and pray that the Holy Spirit prevails in our lives. One of the things i observed is when we have spiritual victories through the Spirit the old nature tries to get credit and if we fall for it, we then experience defeat and that starts a cycle.

Our old nature works through the flesh or physical while the new nature works on the spiritual or strengthened by the Spirit.

The more of Jesus we have the more our victories. Let this sink in in us for this time.
