The power of hair dye & the blood of Jesus Christ

The power of hair dye and the blood of Jesus Christ

I just came back from a 50th year reunion since our HS graduation, where i used the power of hair dye to make myself look younger. But this blog is not really about hair dye but about the blood of Jesus Christ which was shed on the cross.

The blood of Jesus is able to cleanse us from all unrighteousness when we confess our sins and ask for forgiveness. Whereas the hair dye only covers what is outside, gray hair soon appears as hair grow. Not so with the blood of our Lord it never loses its power.

So do not forget there is power in the blood, power in the blood.

Thank you Lord Jesus for giving us forgiveness through the blood, so we can forgive those who trespass against us.

The flesh, the Spirit and the Savior

The flesh, the Spirit and the Savior

As i understand from the Bible, all human beings came from Adam and Eve. Since Adam and Eve sinned , sin came into the world. Since penalty of sin is death, in Adam we all died. When man was destroyed in the flood, with the exception of Noah and his family, we can claim to have came from Noah, but not even his righteousness was able to save us from death. Man in unsaved stage is called flesh.

But God loves his creation so much that He provided a way of salvation through  Jesus Christ and His Spirit to work in us.

God announced the coming of the Messiah (the Savior) through the animal sacrifice even at the time of Abel Adam's second son, and through Abraham, through the law by means of Moses, and through the prophets through the Israelites.

How Jesus Christ is to be our Savior has to be explained in and by. all Christian churches. But before man could receive Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit has to work in man. One  way of explaining this is why Jesus Christ is called the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

I wish i could talk to you in person about these but you may ask your priest, pastor or your spiritual mentor. If you have none of those, then pray to God that He send someone to help you.

What do Henry Blackaby, John MacArthur and Rick Warren have in common ?

What do Henry Blackaby, John MacArthur and Rick Warren have in common ?

Henry Blackaby is well known for his book Experiencing God. What better way to experience God than to experience Jesus Christ.

John MacArthur is known for his Grace to you ministry. What better way to experience grace to you than to experience Jesus Christ in whom grace and truth came from.

Rick Warren is known for Purpose Driven Life. What better way to have purpose driven life than to have our purpose in Jesus Christ.

I hope you agree, don't you ?

Learning to pace myself, how about you ?

Learning to pace myself, how about you ?

After 15 years of school, 4 years work in the Phil., 30 years work in the US, and almost 9 years retired, i finally realizing how to pace myself. What does it mean ?I was still driven by achievement, performance, trying to please people , i forgot about relaxing, be content, enjoy the blessings of God, appreciate the simple things of life, even enjoy my handicap.

Enjoying is not on things we own but waiting(trusting) on God who loves us.Finally i am waking up.

How about you ?

What we can not afford to forget :

What we can not afford to forget:

I believe we all know what happens when we forgot something or someone forgets us. The consequences ranges from low to serious sometime in multiple ranges. There are many examples of those but....

Let us go direct to the point , what can we not afford to forget ?

The answer is there is a need for us to get right with God, another term is getting saved or being born again or having our name written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

If these terms are new to you, you may need to ask somebody who knew those. Or if you knew them but keep ignoring then you could run into irreversible problem, but it is up to you.

Friend i hope you took time to settle with God. If not pray that God will send someone to you to show you the truth or way of salvation or that you may know the truth and to act upon it.

So long for now and may God bless you.

When we missed church..(fellowship)

When we missed church..(fellowship)

When we missed church, for some reason like sickness etc all is not lost.We can still make our time count for the Lord. We can be alone in a room and confess to the Lord, have some soul searching, watch religious program on TV. We can still open our Bible, read and pray.

Other times we could be stuck on traffic or waiting for someone or something, pray, give thanks,etc.But always pay attention if you are driving.

Ask the Lord what He wants you to do for Him. You could also pray for someone. There are still many  things we can do.

Plan to attend or go to your church next time. God bless you.

The Lamb of God and Son of God

The Lamb of God and Son of God

According to the Bible through the prophet Isaiah someone will prepare the way of the Lord.

This was fulfilled by John the Baptist. According to  John 1:23 John the Baptist said I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord.

Further in John 1:29 The next day John saw Jesus coming unto him and said, Behold the Lamb of God which take away the sin of the world.

Also in John 1:34 John said and I saw and bare record that this is the Son of God.

So Jesus is both Lamb of God and Son of God.

Miracles of Jesus

Miracles of Jesus

Most of my blogs are about Jesus. Do i ever got tired of them ? No why should i ? John wrote if all the works of Jesus will be written  every one, John suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

Let us say there is a contest between a believer and unbeliever. Believer says Jesus turns water into wine the unbeliever says man turns water into soda. The believer says Jesus multiplies bread, the unbeliever says man makes cars. The believer says Jesus walks on water the unbeliever says man skies on water.

But seriously what can Jesus do that man can not do ?

And the answer is only Jesus can raise man from the dead.  So the believer says Jesus says he who believes in Him will live again and the unbeliever says all other human beings beside Jesus dies and remains in the grave.

If you are an unbeliever what will you do ? Take a chance ? with Jesus or without Jesus ?

Can photography do this ?

Can photography do this ?

I remember when i was a little boy around 1960. My aunt used to show me her picture in Baguio City. The picture was only one but we seem not to get tired of it.

Then photography developed as motion pictures, instant photo,videotaping, cam corders, digital photography.But here is what photography can not do.Yes it can recreate memories but it can not recreate a human being. We call that resurrection.

How can we explain resurrection ? from dust, dead cells, dry bones, broken bones, from scattered cremated bodies to living beings again.wow.

As human beings what is our best chance for resurrection ?

Mine is to believe in Jesus Christ, what is yours ?

Reflecting God's glory

Reflecting God's glory

When man tries to shine or seek his or her own glory, what happens ? either his own glory is dim , short lived, and he or she is competing with billions of people in the planet. Eventually man will burnt out.

What happens when man reflects God's glory ? The principle is like the sun and the moon. The moon gets its light from the sun.

Man like the moon reflects the light from the source. For man the source is God. God shines through Jesus and the Holy Spirit and man receives or reflects God's glory.

But how can man do that ? Man is to spend some time with God through the Bible, churches, and mature Christians, prayers etc.

We reflect God's glory when we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Have we done that ?
