God's Highest Priority For Our Lives

Image
Romans 8:28

One of our greatest needs is to know that we are loved. Each one of us has to feel certain, deep down in our hearts, that someone loves us, care for us, and has our best interest at heart.

That is how God designed us. He wants us to know that He loves every one of us with a passionate intensity too deep for words. God created humans beings with fellowship in mind--first with Himself, then with others. But we cannot fully love one another until we have ourselves experienced the love of God. We experience His love when we willing surrender to His call to be our Savior, Lord and friend.

There are at least three reasons God seeks our surrender.

1. He loves us and desires our fellowship.

So long as we hold something back from God, we cannot know Him completely or fully Experience His love. when we surrender to Him, we get all of Him.

2. He wants our service for him to be effective and fruitful.

The more we get to know Him and love Jesus, the more effective our service will be. The cl…

A Voice From Beyond

In Memory Of A Soul

Come to be with us, We do not talk about our neighbors , for our voices are stilled, but we send out messages of warning to those who view our silent city----- the city in which others have placed us'

Oh how we would like to warn you not to cover your sins, but to confess and forsake them, that they may be blotted out of GOD's record. It is not all of life just to live; but to live again--- at peace with GOD and man. There is a great difference between those of us with Lazarus in Heaven and those of us with Dives in HELL. DO NOT wait until you come to be with us to repent BUT DO IT NOW; THERE IS NO BETTER TIME. Do it before you come here it will be to late then. we waited to long "O ETERNITY ! how long?" is our wail.

Oh take heed of GOD's messengers-- those who cease not to teach and preach JESUS CHRIST, GOD's only begotten Son, as crucified for our sins according to the scriptures, buried, but risen again from th…

GRACE OF GOD

Image
TIS NOT BY WORKS THAT I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED,
BUT BY HIS BLOOD ALONE I AM SET FREE,
ONCE AND FOR ALL REDEMPTION WORK WAS FINISHED
WHEN JESUS SHED HIS BLOOD ON CALVARY
NO OTHER WAY IS OFFERED FOR SALVATION,
MY ONLY HOPE IS IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS;
TIS BY THE BLOOD I HAVE HIS PEACE WITHIN.



"EVER LIFT THY FACE UPON ME
AS I WORK AND WAIT FOR THEE
RESTING NEATH THY SMILE LORD JESUS
EARTH DARK SHADOWS FLEE,
BRIGHTNESS OF MY FATHERS GLORY
SUNSHINE OF MY FATHERS FACE
KEEP ME EVER TRUSTING RESTING
FILL ME WITH THY GRACE"

THE WONDROUS GRACE OF GOD

Image
TEXT TITUS 2:11-14

(1) WHAT IS THE GRACE OF GOD? The grace of God is define as The favor God shown to the undeserving, what is grace in God,what is grace in Christ, and what is grace in the believer.

GRACE IN GOD IS GODLY MERCY, PITYING, GOD WISDOM PLANNING, GOD POWER PREPARING, AND GODS LOVE PROVIDING. GODS GRACE STRETCHING FROM EDEN TO CALVARY. GRACE IN CHRIST IS SAVING GRACE SUGGESTED BY JESUS, SANCTIFYING GRACE SUGGESTED BY CHRIST, SOVEREIGN GRACE IMPLIED BY THE LORD, AND SATISFYING GRACE BY THE LITTLE WORD OUR. PAUL WAS ABLE TO SAY THAT HE WAS WHAT HE WAS BY THE GRACE OF GOD ( 1COR. 15:10). ANOTHER DEFINATION OF GODS GRACE IS HIS ACTIVE FAVOR BESTOWING THE GREATEST GIFT UPON THOSE WHO HAVE DESERVED THE GREATEST PUNISHMENT.

(2) WHAT GRACE BROUGHT.
(A) SALVATION- ONLY BY THE GRACE OF GOD NOT BY THE LAW, NOT BY SCIENCE, NOT BY PSYCHOLOGY, NOT BY HUMANISM, NONE OF THESE CAN SAVE YOU BUT ONLY BY THE GRACE OF GOD, (EPH. 2:8-10).

Incredible What Love Has Done

THE (SCIENTIFIC) DEATH OF JESUS CHRIST

At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to the death penalty.

At the time crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals condemned to be crucified. Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion Jesus was to be nailed to the cross by His hands and feet.

Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long.

The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There's a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself so that He could breath.

Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs because of the pain so He was forced to alternate between arching His back then usi…

Satan's War On Prayer

Image
I was going through my files yesterday and I was sorting those papers when I happened to see this printed in a bond paper. I got this from my e-mail long time ago before I went to the US. I liked the message so I printed it. I'm glad I did so I can share it here. This was written by Father Harold Hammond.

All of us, from time to time, have had problems in our prayer time. Has this ever happened to you:

Sometimes when you begin to pray, you remember that there is something else you have to do. Perhaps make a phone call, do an errand. Sometimes when you pray, you become bored and say the words of prayer out of your head instead of your heart.

Sometimes when you pray, you become so sleepy that you can hardly keep your eyes open. Sometimes you become lazy and just don't want to pray. You want to do something else, anything else.

Sometimes when you pray, disturbing thoughts come to you such as , "Is this all true? Am I really doing anything worthwhile.I really don't feel any d…

How To Live A Victorious Life

Image
God wants all his children to live a victorious life. Here are 4 steps to guide you on how achieve it.

1. Accept who you are
Accept that you are a sinner and that you need help. If you let Jesus deal with your life, He can change everything and give you a meaningful, fruitful life.

2. Accept you need help
Just accept the fact that you need help. If you living in sin, Jesus can help you to throw the garbage (sin) be reconciled to God.

3. Accept you are willing to change
Just tell Jesus that you are willing to be changed. Only Jesus died for you and your sins. Therefore give him a chance. He will change your lifestyle.

4. Accept victory
You will be victorious in everything in life. When you invite Jesus in to your life, He will make you His daughter/son and you will have eternal life and you will never be rejected, but you will be forgiven. You become the daughter or son of the living God.

What Happens In Heaven

Image
This is one of the nicest e-mails I have seen, and it really puts
things into perspective..

I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We
walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels.My angel
guide stopped in front of the first section and said, 'This is the Receiving
Section.
Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.'

I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many
angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps
from people all over the world.

Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second
section..

The angel then said to me, 'This is the Packaging and Delivery
Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed
and delivered to the living persons who asked for them.. 'I noticed again
how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station,
since so many blessings had been requested and were being packa…

Updates...

Image
It's been a while since I updated this blog. I know I've been lagging behind regarding my updates here. As I've written before, we don't have a church building yet so we use our house in holding our services. We tried to rent a house to hold our services but there was a misunderstanding with the owner. The house have no electricity and the rent she was asking was a little high so we didn't push through. Last month, we bought a 70 x 70 inch projector screen, speakers and a microphone to be used for our film showing ministry. We've been checking out the prices of the screen here in our province before we bought and it was pricey. We ended up buying it in Manila and it was cheaper there.

We're planning again to show a gospel movie. Hubby and I have been checking out the Christian stores here to see what movies they got. They have some gospel movies that we want and we will have to buy it next time. We still have some gospel movies here that we haven't shown…

THE LORD'S TEST

Image
I woke up this morning
and knew that today,
The sun would not be shining
and the clouds would be gray.


As I stepped outside,
rain fell upon my head.
My car wouldn't start
so I walked to school instead.

I forgot all of my assignments
I failed all of my tests.
I dropped my head in disgust
and asked the Lord for
one request.


'Lord, why is it that
things won't go my way?'
He gently replied,
'Dear child;
it is because
you didn't thank me yesterday.


I woke you up and enabled
you to see the sun again.
I gave you shelter,
protected your family, and even let
you make a new friend.


I blessed you far
greater than I ever had before.
But you were too busy
to thank me once more.

You didn't feel sick
because I maintained your health.
You had money in your pocket
because I maintained your wealth.

You had shoes on you feet
and clothes to wear, too.
You had plenty of food to eat,
and what did you do?


You ignored me and went
about your tasks.
But when you wanted something
you never hesitated to ask.

Film Showing Of The Movie "Jesus"

Image
We had our 2nd film showing last Holy Thursday (April 9) in our carport of the movie "Jesus" from the book of Luke. There were more people who came and watched than the first time that we had a film showing. Our carport was so crowded. We were so glad that a lot of people came to watch. The movie was just in time for the Holy Week as they call it here in the Philippines. The said movie was translated in different languages and dialect so the people could understand it. It was a 2 hour movie and while the people were watching we gave them peanuts to munch. After the film showing, we feed the people with "arroz caldo", a Filipino delicacy. My sister was the one who cooked it. Most of the people who came said that they were blessed with the movie and they really appreciated it. Imagine, they got to watch a movie and had snacks all for free, he-he!

Then the next day which was Good Friday, we had a film showing in one of the villages here in our town where most of my rel…

Water Baptism

Image
There were 4 of them whom my hubby baptized in water at San Fabian Beach last April 5. My two nephews Mark and Kenneth, my brother Celso and a young girl named Jenny had repented of their sins and accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. So in obedience to the command and imitation of our Lord Jesus Christ, they were buried with Him in baptism and was raised like Him to live a new life. Thank you Lord for the souls being saved. After the water baptism, we had a picnic at the beach in celebration of the said event.

Film Showing Of The Movie "The Burning Hell"

Image
We had a film showing on Sunday night in our carport of the movie, The Burning Hell. Our friend Pastor Yanie had given us a copy of the movie when we went in their house last Valentine's Day. My brother-in-law has a projector that he bought and that's what we used to show the movie. We borrowed some monobloc chairs from our neighbor who owns a catering business because we only have 15 chairs. We also bought some snacks for all the people who will come to be served after the movie. My sister printed invitations for the film showing and she went house to house in our neighborhood with her son Sunday afternoon and invited the people to come and watch the movie at 8:00 PM. My hubby and I didn't expect a lot of people to come since my sister went inviting people at around 5:00 PM and the film showing was at 8:00 PM. To my surprise, there were more than 30 people who came not counting my family. My hubby gave a short message about hell before the movie started. He said that hell…

A Day Of Worship With The Family

Image
We had our worship service in our carport last Sunday and my siblings with their families were all present. My brother Albin had finished installing the electric outlets and switch. My sister Violy had asked her maid to put some curtains to make the carport presentable for our worship service. Albin was the song leader and my brother-in-law played the organ. My hubby gave the message and it was really great serving and worshiping the Lord. After our service, we all ate together our lunch in our carport. We had a potluck.

Our Ministry

Image
We've been here in the Philippines for more than a month already. I've been so glad to see my family whom I missed so much while I was in the US. It's so good to be home after more than 5 years of living in a foreign land. Texas became my homeland for the past five years and I learned to love the place and the people there. When hubby and I left our home in Wichita Falls I can't help myself but cry. It's been my home for 4 years and there were many memories there. But we have to do what the good Lord wants us to do and that is to go back in the Philippines and do missionary works. We've been praying about this for many months and the Lord had given us the means to go back to the Philippines. Hubby had to quit his job and left his family, friends and loved ones there. I know it's a sacrifice on his part but it's nothing compared to what Jesus Christ had done for us. He gave His life so we could be saved from our sins.

We've been having our services in…

The Pastor And His Son

Image
Every Sunday afternoon, after the morning service at the church, the Pastor and his eleven year old son would go out into their town and hand out Gospel Tracts.

This particular Sunday afternoon, as it came time for the Pastor and his son to go to the streets with their tracts, it was very cold outside, as well as pouring down rain. The boy bundled up in his warmest and driest clothes and said, "OK, dad, I'm ready."

His Pastor dad asked, "Ready for what?"

"Dad, it's time we gather our tracts together and go out."

Dad responds, "Son, it's very cold outside and it's pouring down rain."

The boy gives his dad a surpr…
