Worshipping God

This morning , our Bible Study was about how David danced and leaped to the sound of shouts and trumpets in worshipping and praising the Lord as the Ark enters the city of David. When Mical saw this- daughter of Saul who was his first wife, she felt humiliated and despised David for what he did. You know what, Mical did not bore any child until her death.

I was in awe as I listened,  because it was the last part that I read the other day about David’s life. I always asked God what He wants me to share to people…. I said to myself, this is it. So, I’m sharing it to  you.

If you know the nature of God, you would really love to dance and shout and sing joyfully to the Lord. Despite lowest times in our life, we should always feel joyful and honor our Lord for His Graces, Love and Blessings that we always receive. Give your best to our God: fruits of your labor, talents, etc.

What more if He answers your prayer, you will cry with tears of joy or shout to the world for what God has done to you. Perhaps, you will also dance with all your might before the Lord for thanking Him.

Jesus said, ” Love God with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your might”.

A Song for my Savior

He is the Lord, the Holy God of Mount Zion
I come to praise You and worship You
You are my God, Immortal Living Holy God
The one and only true God, who is forevermore

I come to praise You , I come to worship You
I come to extol Your name and lift my hand up high to YOU
My heart will praise You forevermore
My heart longs to see You and be with You

You are the God, the Holy God of Israel
I come to praise You and worship You
You are the shield around me and my victory
You’re God my Creator, I’m yours forevermore

You are Lord Jesus, son of Abba Father
From You comes salvation, I lift my hand up high to YOU
You are my Healer, You’re my protector.
You’re my Redeemer, You are my Lord.

Jesus, the name above all name, higher than anything, higher than everything. I’ll praise Your name forever, I’ll praise Your name forever…Allelujah, Jesus…Allelujah Jesus.

OUR WORLD TODAY

Sometimes I would think I was given the Power of Discernment. About 15 years ago, I went to a popular book store. It was Valentine’s week and there were valentine’s decorations all over malls: small and big. In that bookstore, there were decorations of 2 cupids facing a heart at the middle, of course, in red color-if you look at it with the naked eye. However, I can’t seem to understand why it looks like a skull for me. I closed my eyes and stared at it again and still saw the same thing. Same thing happened when I and my friends visited the Lady of Manaoag in Pangasinan. We bought some stuff, like pictures, frames, rosaries, oil and the like. As soon as I arrived home, I checked the frame with the image of the Lady of Manaoag, which I bought. To my surprised, when I looked at the crown at a different angle, I was seeing a skull. In fact, I showed it to one of my friend and she saw the same thing. Don’t you think that signs and symbols in our environment have an effect on one’s personality or character? I can say “YES”. I was born in the 50’s and I noticed that each passing decade a new trend comes up which makes people’s attitude to become worst. You will notice changes in music, languages, fashion, electronics, etc. and the environment as a whole. A lot of teenagers today are proud to wear shirts with pictures of skull, demon like faces or with nasty, cocky words. They use sign languages which they think are “in “however are signs and symbols of the devil. Look at the famous and popular performers specially group musicians: they create songs that are lewd, worldly songs (talks about power of money, beauty, fame, frustrations, depression, sorrows, etc.), used a lot of heavy metals, they shout, take out their shirts while performing. Many people specially teenagers, follow them and admire them. If you just notice most young people of today are impolite and are very gross in manners of speaking. One of the most wickedness of man today which has been widespread is same sex relation. Same sex relation is spread all over the world. This is a lie and a deception from the devil, because God did not create them. Look at these words of God in:

Romans 1:27 in the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

However, some people would give justifications on their situations. It might be unfair for these people, but God has the power to change people. Is there anything hard for God? If you are a believer, hard thing for God does not exist at all. He is an all powerful being whose power is unimaginable, limitless.

The devil loves destruction, noise, ugliness, lewdness and everything that gives pleasure in this world. Don’t you think they are representing the evil unwittingly?  I think so, because have they read the words of God, they would have the fear to do it, and will aspire for transformation. I therefore conclude, that with the worldwide spread of signs and symbols of Satan (which includes the images of idols), man has become nearer and more like the devil and the reason man has disregarded the words of  God and has turned away from God. Look at these words from the Bible:

2 Timothy 3 There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. but they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.

There are a lot of religion all over the world that did not come from God. Filipinos claimed to be Christian; however their practices and beliefs are of the pagans. It is very important that you read the Words of God-Bible.

HOW I CAME TO KNOW GOD

When I lost my job, I felt with dismay, however it was only temporary. Still, I don’t have a job, but I believe in God’s promises. According to His word “My Strength is perfect in your Weakness”. I felt some kind of relief when I realized that God is using me for His purpose. I tried to know Him deeper and the first step was to read His word -The Bible. Not everybody understands the Bible(remember Satan does not understand the Scripture), but God gave me wisdom to understand it.Understanding the Bible was not easy. You have to read and reread. To enhance your knowledge about it , you should be filled with Holy Spirit. This can be done through powerful meditation on His Words. Singing hymn to the Lord helps you , too, empower your holy spirit. Reading the Bible comes with  responsibility. Remember the Lord said” Go, and make disciples of nations”. Matthew 13:8 -Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop–a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown., which means once we heard of the good news(words of God and salvation) we have to spread it to other people so they, too would be saved. You can do this if you are also an epitome of the words of God. I think this is the reason why a lot of people go on the streets, televisions, on transportation to spread the words of the Lord, because once you know the words of God it comes with responsibility. That’s what I’m doing now.

I remember ( when I don’t know God yet), I prayed every now and then. It may be just habit that I formed for long time. I still recall, I was saved twice from a near accident along the road while on a passenger transport. The only words I uttered on those 2 accidents was ” Jesus save us”. I used to be a great sinner and still sin today. Sometimes, It’s hard to follow God, because we have attitudes that has grown with us since our childhood which was hard to change. I believe one day, I’ll be fully transformed. Knowing God not only means, praying , going to church every Sunday or some people would say ” as long as we do not oppress, offend or treat others unfairly”. Those things are not enough to become God’s disciple. You will come to know Him by reading the Scriptures. Reading the Scriptures will also tells you the truth about beliefs and practices of people. You have to read from cover to cover to fully understand it.

My great thanks and gratitude to Lord God, for giving me a good home, a family, a son ( I didn’t expect), talents, job, keeping me and my family in good health , a good appearance, sustaining me and my son even in times that I am jobless,  and of course real friends who I can trust in times of needs and who embraced my weaknesses.

LIFE WITH GOD

HOW I CAME TO KNOW GOD Losing a job is not easy especially for a single mother like me. However, losing my job was the only way for me to get closer to God. Have I not lose my job, I would not be able to know God up close and personal. Some people actually resigned from their job to serve Him. Sometimes I would think that I was chosen by God and it’s my destiny to serve Him. We can also serve Him everyday, however we would not be able to know Him better, if we do not have time to read the Bible. Before, reading the Bible was a burden for me and I know most people have the same feeling as I was before. Remember Satan does not understand the Scripture. Therefore, if you are still not interested in reading the words of God, you are still of the world. Satan is of this world and is deceiving people since he was cast down to earth so he can bring these people to his eternal damnation where he belongs -Hell. If you read the Bible and understand it, it will transform you: your belief and outlook in life as a whole

THE AMAZING THINGS GOD DID FOR ME

I was inspired to write this as a gratitude to my Lord , Jesus, my God and to show the whole world, how He comforted my life. Jesus is not only my comforter, but that is the one thing that I can describe how He is in my life. He too, is  my provider, protector, defender, healer, redeemer and deliverer. If only people search for God, they will come to know Him and will see for themselves the veracity of my claims.

I remember how many times He tried to introduce Himself to me, but my ear was deaf and continue to do my way of worldly life.  I never gave a damn to these people who were very persistent and running after me, just to introduce Jesus to me. However,  God bring me to a situation when I, myself had voluntarily looked for Him.

I started to question about life, about God, about me. What is the reason for our existence? Why things happen? What is my purpose? Have these questions come into your mind? Perhaps, some people do not care about it and some others would be much have  deeper meaning of life for  them. I’m one of the latter.

You know how hard for some people to look for a job, spending a lot of money and time. I saw some families that cannot even rear their children to school. At a young age, the children are already engaged in child labor. There are some children who would work for their families because the parents are not capable of rearing them. It is so appalling to see this kind of situation. I would cry of pity to these children who are experiencing this kind of situation.

I said my God is my comforter. Among my siblings, I was the only one who graduated college with my parents support. One of my sister graduated half with her effort, She was a semi scholar in one of the government school in Manila. My other sisters only took vocational course because my parents cannot afford to bring us all to a university or college. Not even my younger brothers who were forced to stop schooling. I had my first job spending few months in a shirt factory and in a law office. I also had the chance to take education units which could make me eligible for a teacher profession.

I had my first loved job. I said “loved job”, because it was the job of my dream-to work in a hotel or consulate. I want to work where I can deal with  different nationalities and hotel industry is one job that would give me this opportunity. I got this job in a hotel without much ado.

I wasn’t expecting a child since I have problem with my uterus. This was one of the surprise of God to me. When I got pregnant with my child, I was on cesarean operation. The amazing thing that happened to me was, I was accepted to this hospital -Fabella Maternity Hospital. This is a free service hospital to all mothers who cannot afford to pay for the children’s birth, specially cesarean operation which cost you a lot of money. You know the policy here, you cannot have their service if one time or another you have come to them for prenatal check up. I have not come to this hospital, not even once because of the distant. I need to be operated because my son was on a traverse lie position. Voila, God was really good to me! I was indeed accepted for cesarean operation in this hospital. The only meant of payment was to have a blood donor. Amazingly, there was right away a person who gave his blood donation for me.

One day after a month of giving birth and I was still on Maternity Leave, I received some kind of money which was not due for me. We received service charge from the hotel each month. I was on maternity leave for a month already. The policy is to receive each employee Service Charge, but must be present for the whole month.  I had my maternity leave started the first week of November, so I’m not supposed to receive Service Charge for the month of November. I was surprised when I received P9,000 on  my atm. I informed the accounting about it, but said it’s not a mistake. There it was, I have some money to spend for my son’s baptism and spend some for the household needs. That was so amazing for me.

During the time of my mother’s death, nobody has a job among us in the family. However, every expenses was paid: burial, helpers, electricity and water bill which were huge because it was a  week wake. The amazing things was that, it was a period of more than 3 months that nobody among us had a job, but we had food to eat. That was really fantastic work of God to us.

One time, I and my son was invited to a birthday celebration in a hotel, there was a heavy traffic along the road because of unexpected event. Many passengers were running to and fro to get a public vehicle to lift them up. I saw the long line of passengers. I was kind of worried, too because it was already late for us(I and my son). To my surprise, there was one private car who stopped in front of us and was inviting for passengers going to MOA. We immediately took the first seat and we were dropped in front of the hotel and which we only paid P20. God was awesome! I had only P300 in my wallet and I was to go to work after the event, while my son goes home. Before we went apart, I got money in my hand which was more than we can spend for a week. I got really, an awesome God.

Heavy rains gave to a floody roads on my way to work one time, last year. I plead to God not to have my feet touch the flood. Amazingly, it happened. Many passengers, again running to and fro to get a public vehicle to pick them up, but there was very very few vehicles passing by. Luckily, I got one -a pedicab that brought me to Magallanes from where I was. My feet did not touch the flood. God is really amazing! This did not happened only once , but twice already.

I have so many stories to tell about how God comforted my life everyday, everyway. My amazing God in Jesus name.  A mighty God who is with me in times of trouble and in needs. So, I’m giving back all the Glory, Majesty, Power, Honor  and Authority to  my Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN.

What about you? Wouldn’t you come to Jesus now and make Him your Lord and Savior and experienced amazing things in your life

The Reasons for Increasing LGBT

BOOK OF ROMANS 1:1-32 -This book clearly explains the reason for growing numbers of LGBT and why wickedness flourishes.

Lev 18:22 You must not have sexual intercourse with a male as one has sexual intercourse with a woman; it is a detestable act.  

I have nothing against the third sex and we do not condemn them. For we are all condemned under sins and if we condemn people, we are also condemning ourselves. We do love them as they are also our friends. If you love your friends, you would care for their souls and salvations. Please share them the grace of salvation which is given freely through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Words of God from the Book of Romans through the Apostle Paul:

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the Truth by their wickedness, –the truth that God created only man and woman as Adam and Eve which was God’s original plan and design. That plan and design has been warped and twisted by our sinfulness and hardness of heart in almost every possible manner. 
19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them-they have not search  God to know who God is and so the truth about God would be revealed to them
 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuseGod has revealed Himself and His  words through the prophets from the beginning and was passed down from generation to generation. However, despite warnings through hearing the words of God revealed to them through the prophets and people who care for their salvation, they just shrugged it off and continue their wickedness.
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened-and because they deviate from beliefs of the only one God in Jesus name, they’re hearts were blinded.
22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools-their thought that it’s okay for them to be in that situation, that they too, has the right to be sons and daughters of God. They claimed the  reasons that everybody is equal in the eyes of God. 
23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles-again, because of IDOLATRY, the main reason that cause this generational curse to families who deviated from the truth that Jesus is the only Way to the Father.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another-therefore, the result of above disobedience are these LGBTs. These does not only includes LGBT, but all things that are not compatible with the Kingdom of God : The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals, (10) thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive, and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God(1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones-so women attracted to women.
27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error-same with men attracted to men.
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done-and since, they did not search for God and discover the truth, the truth was depraved of them and  hearts were blinded. 
29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips
30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents  31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy–and  because of idolatry they are now ruled by the king of this world which is Satan and are full of evilness and is always deviated from righteousness and truth.
32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
Imagined not only those who are LGBT that will be judged , but also those who approved of it, and Death is the punishment. Death which is Hell. Again, I would like to reiterate, hell is a horrible place you would never ever wanted to be. Hell is real thing.
Third sex continuous to increase in numbers and are outwardly , outrageously, pridefully declaring their identities. Even the church of  God have been invaded by the third sex group.  They even put up their own church and considered themselves Christian which means a follower of Christ. They might be thinking that if they put up their church they would be saved. Have they  known God  by reading His words, they would not do this. What their doing is a blasphemy to God and an honor of Satan.
Let’s help our LGBT friends to get away with their situation. We are all sinners and because the grace of God is amazing and abounds us, we can be renewed in spirit. I used to be one of  sexually immoral, however, the grace of God had changed me , and I am now a new person: the old has gone.
God’s grace brings new life and help you change every step of the way. As John said in his book:
John 3:16-21 For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (17) For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world should be saved through him. (18) The one who believes in him is not condemned. The one who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God. (19) Now this is the basis for judging: that the light has come into the world and people loved the darkness rather than the light, because their deeds were evil. (20) For everyone who does evil deeds hates the light and does not come to the light, so that their deeds will not be exposed. (21) But the one who practices the truth comes to the light, so that it may be plainly evident that his deeds have been done in God.

TESTIMONIES : Anthony Roquel of Tonette Macho of Iskul Bukol”Nabilanggo ako ng 32 taon sa isang kasalanang hindi ko ginusto. Ang kasinungalingan na ipinanganak akong bakla at mamamatay akong bakla,” he added.Roquel has since changed lifestyle. From being a homosexual, he is now a straight man who follows the Lord.

Ezra band, Kaye admits being a “Tomboy”, but since she is a Christian, she tried to obey the Lord of not having any relationship with same sex as she is and, she does not approved of same sex marriage.

With these testimonies, kayo din po ay kayang baguhin ng Dios. Our God is the impossible and can changed people. Kung Siya’y iyong hahanapin at sisikaping sundin, ikaw ay magtatagumpay at sigurado ang yong kaligtasan.

LGBT and others who have not accepted Jesus in their life as their Lord and Savior, this is the time. You heard the Words, please act on it now or tomorrow might be already late for you.
To God be the Glory in Jesus Mighty name. AMEN.
