Angels

THIS STORY IS BASED FROM MY TRUE EXPERIENCE.

The question some may ask, are Angels real?

The answer is yes they do exist, I know by experience. When I was about 6 years old
my father had an old footlocker in the garage. He told all of us kids to stay out. Well, I am the
type of person if someone tells me not or I can"t do something I will do it or die. I went out in the garage climbed into that footlocker and the lid shut and locked with me in side. I screamed and yelled but no one could hear me. I was soon crying and so scared that I may die there inside and no one will know where I was. I was inside that footlocker, locked in for how long I don"t know but it seemed like eternity. Then the lid opened and it was just like when your mother would pick you up when you were hurt. It was that way then but no one that I could see was there. It was my gurdian angel watching over me that day, the one the good Lord had sent. From that day on I have believed in angels. I think some time some of them ufo spotting are angel activity moving about watching. That is one of the ways God has of protecting and watching over us.

"For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear they up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone." (Psalm 91: 11-12)

It's The Day Of The Lord!

We had a beautiful day today! It's Sunday and what a great time to be in the house of the Lord to worship Him and listen to the message of our pastor. He delivered a good message this morning and his text verse is found in Psalms 9:17 which says, "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." America is now going down. One reason is that it's people are turning their back on God. They removed the prayers and Bibles in the school and they removed the word Christmas and replaced it with Holidays. This nation which had been so blessed is now going down and that's the main reason. I remember that when I was still in the Philippines, I attended an end-times seminar and one of the prophecy is that America will become a weak nation and it's coming true. The US dollar is becoming weaker and there are lots of natural disasters and calamities here like fires, hurricanes, falling bridge and who can forget the 9/11. The prophecy is coming true. Unless this nation will acknowledge God and go back to Him, America will become a waste nation.

Faith, What Is It?

Faith is the disposition of the mind that moves you forward in life. It is a conviction that guides your steps, even when you are confronted with obstacles. Faith keeps its eye on the finish line rather on the hurdles. That's why the apostle Paul can boldly declare, "We walk by Faith, not by sight" (2 Corinthian 5:7)

"Faith" shows you the end result, the prize to be won. "Sight" shows you everything that stands in your way. It isn't a question of mind over matter or of a positive mental attitude. It's not even an issue of "powering through" the bad so you can get to the good. Faith is about a total focus of the mind and spirit on something specific--- in this case, God. In faith, you simply walk toward the goal. When you reach an obstacle, it doesn't have to send you backward. In fact, it just may be a training exercise that God will use to strengthen you for your journey onward.

( 2 Corinthians 5: 6-8)
(6)-Therefore we are always confident, knowing that whilst we are at home
in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
(7)- (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
(8)- We are confident, I say and willing rather to be absent from the body,
and to be present with the Lord.

Great Is Our God

Did you ever marvel of how great and awesome our God is? Everyday of my life I can’t thank Him enough for all the things that He has done and all the things He’s going to do in my life. As I look back in the past, I remember my life before I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I had big dreams, like I wanted to finish my studies, find a good job to help my family and also get married and have a family of my own. I also wanted to get rich, have a nice house and go abroad. My parents have no riches to give us except our education. My mom passed away before I graduated in high school and my dad had no stable job but I thank God that we had a grandma who was so loving, generous and willing to support my education and also my siblings. I can say that I really did good in my studies because from elementary up to my high school years I was a consistent honor student. I wanted to prove something that even though I came from a poor family that I can be recognized in the school because of my achievements. Then when I was in my college years, the Lord had began to deal with me. My great aunt had been inviting me to go to church with her but I always had an alibi not to go. Then I asked her to sew a blouse and dress for me because she was a dressmaker. She didn’t want to charge me but she just wanted me to go to church with her on Sunday so I went with her. I remember that I was even ashamed to carry my Bible. I went there a few times but my heart was hardened and not yet ready at that time to receive Jesus in my life. I just went there just to return the favor that my great aunt did for me. It was a few years that I went there on and off. Then they had this revival and I attended it and that was December 1987. I was touched by the message of the preacher and during the invitation, the Holy Spirit convicted me to go to the altar. My heart was pounding, then I walked my way in front of the altar. I kneeled down and right there and then, I repented of my sins and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. It was there at that moment that I realized that even though I have all the talent, intelligence, education and achievements in life, they are all void and meaningless if I don’t have Jesus in my heart. I realized that everything here on earth is just temporal and life without Jesus is void and empty. I thank God for He has waited on me. I was lost and He found me. There has been a lot of trials and temptations in my life but I thank God because He used those trials to transform me from being a baby Christian to a mature Christian with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Being a Christian doesn’t mean that I will be free from all these things. The Scriptures tell us in 1 Cor. 10:13 that God is faithful who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation, will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. Looking back now with all the trials I’ve been through, I’m amazed that God has been so faithful to carry me through. His grace is sufficient for me, because it’s when I am weak that I am strong because He is my strength. There were also times that I committed mistakes and sinned because as long as we are in this human flesh we tend to commit sin but I went to God and ask His forgiveness. The Bible says in 1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Our God is a loving God but he hates S-I-N. I thank God for He has given Jesus to die on the cross for my sins so I will be reconciled with Him. I thank God for all the trials in my life because it increased my faith in Him. I thank God for He has changed me, my outlook and priorities in life. I thank God for the joy of my salvation. I thank God for I know that I’ll be with Him in heaven someday where there will be no more trials, no more sickness and no more tears. The Lord ain’t done with me yet. I believe He has more plans in my life and I asked Him to use me and my hubby to share the gospel to the lost. The Lord knows our hearts’ desire. We want to magnify the name of the Lord and serve Him all the days of our lives. Nothing can compare with the joy and peace that comes in serving God. God is awesome! God is great! No one else is like Him.

A Few Thoughts

If you have joy in your Heart it will be known by the look on your face.

The object of Love is to serve not win.

I have held many things in my hand, and I have lost them; but whatever I have placed in Gods hands, That I Still Have.

When God measure a person He puts the tape around the Heart and not the head.

The secret of life is that it is GOD given.

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can not heal.

True Prayer is the longing of the heart.



The Cross: Where the Wrath and Love of God Meet

The cross is the most important doctrine in the Bible. Why?

All have sinned not one person but every person on this planet earth, have sinned against God (Rom. 3:23). It started with Adam & Eve and has carried down through the centuries up to this very day. God said we all are as filthy rags.

The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). By this it meant we are separated from God, until we come to Repentance and ask forgiveness of our sins against our Lord God. True repentance is having a Godly sorrow not sorry because you got caught but sorry for committing a sin against God.

We will give and account of ourself to God for all the wrong we have done. Today people are not accountable, always trying to justify their actions by blaming it on the circumstance like the environment they grew up in, if that is true what about Adam & Eve they were in the perfect surrounding , the perfect atmosphere. But they still disobeyed and sin against God. WE HAVE OUR OWN FREE WILL. NO ONE MAKES YOU DO WRONG. YOU CHOSE TO SIN YOURSELF. SATAN WILL NOT MAKE YOU, and even God won't make you do anything.

Salvation comes only through Jesus Christ through the Cross. Without it we are lost

If we want to see how seriously God takes sin we need only look to the cross.
We can not understand the measures of God"s love without recognizing God"s wrath (John 3:36)

God"s wrath is God"s intense hatred for sin not the sinner, (Romans 1:18 ). For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold the truth in unrighteousness; God hates sin because it destroys, while He gives life.

God directs His wrath toward not just the cross but toward Jesus. You say why Jesus? When Jesus hung on that Cross that day in agony, humiliation nail driven into His hand and feet hung on that cross in great pain being mocked by all the people, God put the sins of the world upon Him. The wrath of God, then His LOVE. God gave His Son to die on the cross so you and I could have Life eternity if we only believe. What matter of love is that one lays his life down for we humans.

Because of Jesus, God can satisfy both justice and mercy, wrath and love:

Justice by giving everyone a chance to repent from their sins if you chose not to the wrath is upon you to live eternity in a burning hell. Yes Hell is real. If you repent and ask forgiveness of your sins, the mercy of God will be given you to live eternity in heaven:

Justification God declares us righteous because of CHRIST JESUS righteousness (Romans 3:24-26)
Verse( 24 ) - Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
( 25 ) - Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His
righteousness for the remission of sin that are past through the forbearance of God:
( 26) - To declare, I say at time His righteousness, that He might be just, and the justifier of Him which believeth in Jesus.

The cross is "foolishness" to some, but life to anyone who places their trust in Jesus Christ.

( John 3:16-17)- (16)- For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
(17)- For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but the world through Him might be saved.

The Price Of Prayerlessness

Psalm 55:22 "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved."

Imagine walking through a crowded airport. You can't move without bumping into someone. You're late for your flight, and a wheel just broke on your over-packed suitcase.
With no other option, you're forced to carry the luggage and slowly maneuver through the congested lobby toward the ticketing area. Almost immediately, a young gentleman offers to carry your bags, but you refuse. When you realize the ticket counter is two levels up, you make your way to the stairs. Someone asks you if it would be easier to take the elevator. But you are determined to carry your bags.


As you finally make it to the top of the steps, your arms feel numb from the pressure of your luggage. Your legs are starting to buckle from the weight. Your back is aching from supporting the heavy load. Then, you spot a collection of unused luggage carts. But you ignore them, sure that you can handle the bags yourself.

Isn't this a silly story? Who would choose to carry such a heavy burden and ignore every opportunity to lay it down? Yet, many believers do just that. Our Father has called us to lay our cares at His feet. But when we fail to come to God in prayer, we're just as foolish as the person, weighed down by heavy baggage, staggering through the airport.

Are you trying to carry a burden greater than you can bear? Don't ignore God's offer to help. The truth is, we really can't "do it ourselves," and God never wanted us to try.

Love Casts Out Fear

I believe fear is conquered through love. “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear” (1 Jn. 4:18). We cannot fear that which we love.

If you are afraid of something or someone, turn your attention to what you love rather than holding on to the thought of fear. The following meditations can help you in the stillness of prayer:

I let love cast out fear of disease or ill health.

I love the life idea. I fall in love with life. I think life and talk life. I see myself filled with life, the very life of God.I love, praise, and give thanks for the life of God that is my life—the life of God which heals, restores, and renews me.With thoughts and feelings of love—love of life, love of the healing idea—I release my thoughts of ill health, disease, and fear. I am in love with life, and I express the life of God, radiantly, wonderfully, powerfully.

I let love cast out fear of being alone.

I love my life. I love the place that I call home. I love knowing that I am never alone, that God is always with me. I give love, and I feel surrounded and enfolded by the love of God.I may be alone but I am never lonely. I think lovingly of my dear ones near and far. I pray with love for the people I feel close to and for the world. I feel a part of the great and wonderful family of God. Love makes me one with God and one with all God’s children.

I let love cast out fear of lack.

Love replaces poverty thoughts. I love the realization that I am a rich child of a rich God. I love the work that is mine to do. I love and praise God as my dependable, unfailing resource. I love the flow of supply that is without limitation. I love, use, and express the talents and abilities with which I have been endowed. I love the feeling of success and satisfaction that I have because my trust is in God. I love the thought that my daily needs are met and that my future needs will be met as well. I express love and release thoughts of lack. I express love—God’s prospering love—as I let myself share willingly and freely with others.

I let love cast out fear of failure.

I love the opportunities that are mine. I love the challenges that stir me to deeper thought and greater effort. I love the spirit of faith and courage that refuses to let fear dominate me. I love the feeling of spiritual power—the power of the Christ within me—that is mine when I act courageously and dare to step out in faith. I love the feeling of reassurance which comes when I listen to the “still small voice” within telling me that I can succeed.

I let love cast out fear of people.I express love toward all, and I attract love from all.Love—divine love—is never mistrusted, never mistrusts. Love—divine love—never mistreats and is never mistreated. Love is always harmonious. Love breaks down barriers of timidity or lack of understanding. Love is not overpowered by personality. Love meets in agreement with the best in others and reveals it.I meet life and people in a loving spirit, and life and people respond to me with warmth, friendliness, and love.

I let love cast out fear of change.

I think about change, and I hold this positive thought: I love the thought of change! Love assures me that through every change God is with me. In every changing condition or circumstance, love reveals something new and rewarding. I meet change with love, and I am blessed, enriched, and made happier.

I let love cast out fear of fear.

Love casts out unreasonable fear. Love casts out fear of fear itself! I remember that God loves me. What is there to fear? God is love, and God loves me.

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor pricipalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom. 8:38-39).

Fearlessly I meet life and love God, knowing that God loves me and that nothing and no one can separate me from the love of God. “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.”

God's Want Ad

What if God decided to place a personal ad? How do you think it would read? I have a feeling it would go something like this:

One LG (Loving God) seeks intimacy and fellowship with AFF (A Faithful Friend). This special person should be a loving companion, one who enjoys long strolls on a forgotten beach, lighthearted laughter over silly things, an abiding affection for those who are hurting, and a burning desire to proclaim the good news to a lost and dying world.

Most importantly, this special someone must be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit and be willing to unselfishly lay down his or her life for another. For in doing these things, there is no greater love.

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).
This LG (Loving God) wishes to extend His mercy and kindness to a WS (Willing Servant), one who loves sharing the gospel and doesn’t mind getting caught in the rain while witnessing to a hurting generation.
This person must also have a THFI (tender heart for intercession), an ability to forgive easily, and a will that is forged in steel, fixed and immovable.


This Loving God longs to share His unconditional love to anyone with an open heart to receive it!
If you think you would be interested in a long-term relationship, give Me a call. It’s best to reach Me in the early morning hours. You more than likely already have My number. If not, leave a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you ASAAP (Assuredly Sending An Answered Prayer)!

Signed,

Your Heavenly Matchmaker


Crave God's Presence

"With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgements are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness." ISAIAH 26:9

If we are hungry enough, we will get something to eat. And if we can't eat before we leave home, we will go to a drive-thru at a fast-food restaurant. Or we will call a place that delivers food to bring us something to eat.
If we are hungry enough for God, we will find a way into His presence. We should be so hungry for the presence of God that we absolutely will not go out of our house or tackle any kind of project until we have spent some time with Him.
