Something You Need to Know About the Pope and the Vatican

Image result for pope tiara with inscription images Just to share a piece of information about Pope and the Vatican -the seat of the Roman Catholic.

The pope was designated as Vicarius Filii Dei or Vicar of Christ meaning a representative of God or tantamount as representation of Christ which is a blasphemy of God. Nobody can substitute God, but Christ and nobody can substitute Christ. God said, His glory is His and His alone.

In Revelation 13:1 1 And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name.

There are too much to explain on the Book of Revelation about the Vatican and it’s leaders, but it would be too deep to understand at the moment for those who has not learned the words of God. I gave a simple example of one of them which can be easily understood.

The pope has what we called Tiara on his head bearing these words:
IESV CHRISTI VICARIO INFALLIBILI- infallible vicar of Jesus Christ
ORBIS SVPREMO IN TERRA RECTORI – to the supreme governor of the world of earth .
REGVM ATQVE POPVLORVM PATRI – to the father of nations and kings.

When we say infallible, it is without sin or error. According to the Scripture, God
said that all had sinned and fall short to the Glory of God. It’s only God Himself
that is without sin. Those tittles cannot be given to a man whom created by God,
but to God Himself only. Therefore, that alone is a big lie of satan to deceive people.

How did the Vatican and the pope started had a lot of complicated stories. It is
the seat of the throne of the Papa who is the head of the Catholic church all over
the world. In History you can remember that Constantinopole was the first Christian emperor. He was the one who declared Christianity through the Edict of Milan(remember History) as the main religion of the land after he won the battle of Mildivian for putting the sign of the Cross on their battleship. Rome was a pagan country remember, so when he declared Christianity, he combined pagans practices with Christian religion.

They claimed that Peter was the first pope. If you read the Bible , there’s nowhere in the Bible that supports their claimed. When Paul thanks the people who assisted him in bringing up Jesus to the Romans, he never mentioned Peter, which simply means that Peter was not in Rome. It was also said in the Bible that Peter was the apostle for the Jews or the circumcised and Paul for the gentile or the uncircumcised. It only means that Peter did not even set his foot in Rome.

If you would check and read the Bible, the doctrines that the Catholic doctrine
is none existing in the scripture. If that would be originated from the teachings
of the apostle Peter, it would have been the same as the scripture which is the
same before and is still the same today. In the scripture, there was no teachings
about indulgence, to do penance for sins, confessions to a priest, praying the
rosary, venerating Mary and saints, the process of baptism, the ceremonial mass.
In fact, they actually are in  contradictions  to the teachings of the Bible.

There were lots of secrets in the Vatican, but as God said, there is no hidden things that will not come out to light. There were news about sexual abuse among members of the choirs which are boys. It started to come out in 2010 and there was investigations, but nothing happened until now.

If you read history about Reformation or Protestant Reformation, it was the darkest period of Christianity. In the St Bathomew Massacre, there were millions of Huguenotes(these were French protestants who was regarded as heretics by the Catholic leaders of that time) who died. Book of Revelations supports all what had happened in the history of Christian church.

I’m sharing these information for you to open your eyes to what is the truth. I reiterated for you to read The Bible.

Jeremiah 33:3,”  3 Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.

LOOK AT YOUR CHILDREN

There are a lot of things to worry about our youth of today. To our beloved parents, be wary of what’s going on with your kid. According to Psychology, the critical age of a child is from 2-6 years old while others says 8. This years is the year that lays down the foundation of a child. Therefore, whatever he learns in those critical years will be his foundation which will mold a child. Therefore, as early as those age, let’s make sure that we introduce Jesus to them. Teach them about the life of Jesus. There are bibles for kids with wonderful colored pictures for their easy understanding and appreciation.

Let’s not introduce the modern gadgets such as cellphones and internets. Even if they know about these stuff, do not allow them to use it at such an early age. Limit their watch on movies and guide them in watching. Do not allow them to watch movies or shows that would infest their mind with worldly matters such as  MTVs, (MTV presents music that are worldly and remember that young people of today are conquered by the evil through music). Horror, lewd or sensual, fantasy with violent or sensual touch and drastic or violent movies should be taboo for them. Parents let’s watch them closely as they grow.

Our young kids are already involved in music. Everybody loves music and since this is a portal for evil to come to human, let’s make sure that our kids does not listen to music that implies sensual or sex, destructions, vulgar words , love of money, hatred, vengeance, and depressions. There are a lot of band groups and famous celebrity performers specially from Hollywood that is most admired by young kids of today ex: Britney spears, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Miley Cyrus, Beyonce, etc. There are a lot of them or perhaps almost all of these famous personality in music industry. You may play gospel songs in your house to invite good spirit and for your kids to remember and sing along with it.

Remember that our youth today holds the future.

A story of God’s Miracle in Elijah

We used to see God’s miracle during the time of Moses. Here in the Book of 1 Kings, God has again show His miracles to the people  of Israel.
During that time the Israelites turned away from God , and instead give honor to their god Baal.  One time, Elijah, one of the prophets of whom God was pleased, told the prophets of Baal to meet them at Mount Carmel to have a Faced-Off, and to give proof who’s god is really God. So, all  four hundred fifty Baal prophets went and joined together to prove to the people that their god Baal is god. They have to offer  a bull, cut into pieces and whose offer will be burned without setting fire on it, is the true God. The 450 prophets of Baal were the first to perform. They shouted to Baal, offered dance from morning till noon, till they slashed with swords and spears their body till blood flowed from them.  When the evening comes and no answered from Baal came, to burn their offerings, Elijah told them to come and he will have his turn. So he prepared the  altar putting 12 stones representing the 12 tribes of Israel. He dig a ditch around the woods and  pour water on it. He put the cut bull at the middle of the woods , and he began to pray.
1 Kings 18,3:36-37, “LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. 37 Answer me, LORD, answer me, so these people will know that you, LORD, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.”
38 Then the fire of the LORD fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench. 39 When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, “The LORD—he is God! The LORD—he is God!” Everybody cried out with surprise.
You see , Elijah just simply pray to the Lord  and he was answered. Do you know how to pray? Why was Elijah’s prayer answered right away?
In Matthew 6:9-13, Jesus taught His disciples how to pray. ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, 10 your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us today our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from the evil one.’ 14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
The prayer is just a pattern of how we should pray to our Almighty Father and not really to say it word for word. First ,(HALLOWED BE THEY NAME) we have to Honor the name of Our Father(God loves to be Honored). As God Almighty has many names,we can say, the Almighty, omnipotent, everlasting God,The God of Miracle, The Healing  God, The Alpha and Omega, God Creator of Heaven and earth, The God of Prophets, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Jehovah Jireh,  Jehovah Rafa, The Healing God, God of Light, God of Love, Abba Father, Our King Most High, our One True God , The Infinite God, etc. There are so many things, good adjectives that will describe Our Father. The first part of the prayer is very important. We have to  acknowledge and honor God, then you can say your request(that will be in line with His Will) We have to ask forgiveness and to forgive people who has offended us. We have to end it by giving thanks through our Lord Jesus Christ.
In Matthew 16:23-24, 23 In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete
Why was the prayer of Elijah was right away answered by God. First, the request was in line with the Will of the Father-for people to know that He is God. God was pleased with Elijah who  has great intimacy with Lord. I think, I have already mentioned about INTIMACY with the Lord. How do we do this? By constant prayer, reading His words, declaring His goodness in your life, and feel His love. Some people would pray  4 hours just like the Korean Christians. I also mentioned before on my previous email, my sister’s friend who put up a ministry inside the ship they worked for. She has great intimacy with Lord God and so her desire’s and prayers was right away granted.

Blinded Mind by Satan

2Corinthians 4:4-5

4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.

The god of this age is Satan. Mahirap ituro ang daan ng Dios to people who are blinded by Satan. Ask yourself, does my church raised up Jesus as the center of our church.? Does my church believe that Jesus is God Himself in the trinity of Son. Does my church believe in the total submission to the teachings of the Bible  that stands for :

B-basic/biblical

I-instruction/information/insights

B-before/basic

L-leaving/living

E-earth/everyday

and not the teacings of the church. Some church have changed or added  doctrines that is out of the teachings of the Bible. Kaya napakahalaga po ng bible sa bawat isa sa tin ay magbasa ng Bible. Tagalog na po ito, sana  po maintindihan natin. Hindi po madali sa kin ang magsaliksik ng bawat isusulat at iumento, ngunit dahil mahal ko ang Panginoong Dios na nagligtas sa kin sa pamamgitan ni Jesus, sumusunod lamang ako sa Kanyang pinagutos to,“disciple my nations” Jesus owns us, He gave Himself to the Cross to save us. The Father has given Him power over earth and He is the Light of mankind, Lord of Lords and King of Kings and people are saved  through Him.

Some people say that a Born Again Christians is a kind of cult. Born Again Christians is a fellowship with God with Jesus Christ as the center, and therefore is not a religion.

We were born again, because we were baptized in Jesus Christ and with Holy Spirit to empower our lives to fight the evil of the earth. Di ba sabi ni Jesus you have to be Born Again-this is to remove the original sins that we adopted from birth, the sins of Adam and Eve. The baptism of the Holy Spirit which is a gift of God, empowers us to fight against  evil who is of the earth . Di ba sabi nga ni God  that we should not conform to  the pattern of this world.Di ba mahirap if you do not conform to the pattern of this world. Imagine mo hwag kang sumunod sa mga uso tulad ng mga music, mga movies, fashions, at kung ano ang kalakaran ng mundo. Yung mga pagiinom, pagsasayang walang kabuluhan, sexual immorality, idolatry, etc,,napakadami po and lahat po that will give you:lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and pride of life.How can you do that if most of the people around you and your peers are of this world. Hindi ba mahahawa ka, Satan is very strong here on earth because he was dumped here. Sabi ng Satanism, he is used for God’s purpose. He might be used for God’s purpose, but Satan cannot overpower his Creator-our Almighty Father. God was the one who created us and every good thing you see around you and the ugly  side of things that you see around  was created and brought by Satan-if you only knew how does Satan works on people, to get their souls, to blind people.

To the parents, please introduce Jesus Christ to them. Buy them Bibles for kids, lead them in reading and understanding it. Make a daily prayer to communicate with God with your children. Don’t miss to go to a church for common belief about God or to go and have fellowship where you pray, praise, thanks  and hear the Words of God.

The world of today is very dangerous. Look at what’s going on around you. Everyone of us needs the help of our God in Jesus name for protection.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY NOW AND FOREVER.AMEN

Youth of Today

Just to remind you once again about the coming of God for you to be prepared. Alam naman natin ito. We heard a lot about this, and which most people either couldn’t care less or in disbelief.

2 Timothy3: 1-7

1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. 6 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, 7 always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. 

The future seems to be very dangerous as the foundation of it, is taking place on our young people of today. They are very smart, very intelligent and very skilled specially in new technologies. They may have lots of knowledge, but they  lack the wisdom. Wisdom comes from God and it was said that the ‘Fear of God is the beginning of wisdom’. What’s going on today in our world is just a prelude. 

THE KIDS OF TODAY

Most kids of today are becoming disinterested in school. They rather play with games on the phones. Pag gising palang sa umaga , cellphone na ang hawak . Maging sa sasakyan pansin ko ang mga bata na humahawak ng phone at mahusay ng pumindot nito. I also observed from among kids today age 2 and above are prone to tantrums. Parents have so much struggle with these attitudeon their kids which you will also see on public places.

EFFECT OF HIGH TECHNOLOGY DEVICE

Those high technology devices has changed man to the attitude of dependency, laziness, brutality, addiction, ungodliness, etc.  Television, movies, internet,  are good source of information, however without proper guidance and control, it can be very dangerous specially for young people. These  media devices are mediums that  makes a huge impact on man’s life. Most of the viewer’s imitate what they see on these. There’s a big impact on health, too.  Every thing expose through these devices greatly affects and has effect on man.

YOUNG PEOPLE OF TODAY

Young people are addicted to  social media such as: Instagram, Tweeter,  Facebook ,etc. Napupuyat ang marami dito. This is an unhealthy practices of most young people kasi di na sila nakakapagexercise, napupuyat sila and they miss to do important things like eating on time and many others. Anime movies are becoming more violent and showing powerful works of the devil, which most young men and even middle aged men watch ex. Naruto. Same with movies such as Death game movies and many others of same kind. Young people are engaged in premarital sex which resulted to unwanted pregnancies which bring about broken homes. Third sex and sexual immorality are becoming globally dominant due also to these technology devices. We all know that.

Remember what happen in the Close Up Concert in MOA where 5 young people died because of drugs. One testimony said of how these young people behaved differently. They wore sunglasses in the evening, kept on chewing a gum, dancing in an hour,hugging and kissing their partner. These young people were aged 17 to 22. Loving parents, how is your relationship with your children? I’m sure many parents does not know what’s going on with their children specially yung mga busy parents, and the kids are left alone to their yayas. It’s really sad to think what’s happening with our young generation. Yung iba naman walang ginawa sa pera nila kungdi magpaganda. They become very conceited and lovers of self.

The mother of our pastor just gone from their province in Davao. She told a story about a very rich woman in their place who owns a house building. Imagined mo nageelevator daw sa bahay kasi building ang house. The woman has lots of business sa casino. This woman spent a lot of money for beautification. Know what happened? Yun ang kinamatay niya. Nagkaroon ng effect sa katawan niya ang mga ginagamit niyang pampaganda. Just imagine that tsk…tsk…tsk. Poor woman, nakakaawa talaga siya. Siguro kung nakilala lamang niya si God, she will never died that young age and God will show her how to manage her wealth in a way that would benefit people . The sad part her soul in hell. She loved herself too much.

People are also becoming lovers of self. Observed a passenger bus , no young man would ever offer a seat to an older women. Nagtutulugtulugan sila at kahit makita nilang maraming dalahin ang isang ale, “pakilam ko”. Kahit sa jeep, ayaw masiksik pag may darating na bagong pasahero, hindi pa rin uurong kahit hirap umupo ang bagong pasahero. Kailangan pang ipagsiksikan ng bagong dating na pasahero ang kanyang sarili para umusog ang nakaupo na.  Ikaw ba ay ganito? Pag may magaabot ng pera at ikaw ang malapit sa driver, nakasimangot ka ba? Some people don’t mind how are some people suffering, basta sila ay comfortable and happy with their situation.

Sabi nga, youth is the foundation of future generation. With these kind of youth, how will you think our next generation will be? I’m sure it will be very high when it comes to technology and knowldge of earthly things, but what about morality and spiritual things?

Remember what happened to Noah’s time and in Lot’s time in Sodom and Gomorrah. People were drinking, merrymaking, eating, just like today. It will be the same as in the times of Noah and Lot. Kung kelan naging mapayapa  at akala mo wala ng bagabag saka darating ang wakas.

Luke 12:39-40

39 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.   40 You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

 Luke 17:26-27

26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man.  27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.  28 “It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building.  29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all 

Just like yesterday’s event in Noah and Lot’s time, people are drinking, eating, merrymaking, building, selling or whatever they do, then God will come. So many people go to mall to eat, to buy to drink. Many are merrymaking-walang patumanggang inuman, laughing, and is doing the usual routine activity and it’a quiet time. The the end will come.BE WARY!

 Hebrews 4:7(b), “TODAY if ye will hear His voice, harden not your hearts.”

 

 

 

A Song of Psalm 21

A Song of Ascents. PSALM 121 –King David and Tune by Josey Miller
                                       4 BEAT (INTRO)

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
He will not let my foot be moved; He who keeps me will not slumber
Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
REFRAIN
The Lord is my keeper; the Lord is my shade on my right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep me from all evil; He will keep my life
The Lord will keep me going out and coming in from this time forth and forevermore
REPEAT REFRAIN
