New Birth Is By Death


3.1 Nicodemus, like us, is attracted to Jesus. This new teacher fascinates him. Nicodemus examines all the facts he can find. They convince him that God has sent Jesus, for no one can do such miracles unless God is with him. Every illness receives a complete cure – instantly! The crippled walk! The blind see! Reports from Galilee even tell of water turning into wine (John 2).

Yet the same reports disturb leaders like Nicodemus. John the Baptizer has introduced Jesus to the nation. John announces that Jesus is far greater. Though John baptizes in water, Jesus will baptize in the Holy Spirit. Though John is the older man, he claims that Jesus existed long before him. More than that, John likens Jesus to a lamb. “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” What can this mean? How can any human be a sacrifice to forgive sins?Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up…

Doubts and questions swirl in the mind of Nicodemus. His meeting with Jesus only seems to add more questions. For Jesus speaks of strange things — another birth, the mystery of wind, earthly things and heavenly things. Jesus then reminds Nicodemus of an ancient event:

“Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life” (John 3:14-15).

Why did Moses use a snake? What can this mean about Jesus?

3.2 – “Snakes” and “Sheep”
3.3 – Jesus Has No Doubt
3.4 – No Way But Death
3.5 – Like a Lamb to the Slaughter
3.6 – Look at the Cross!

Jesus, like the bronze snake, will be lifted up to save others.

Jesus begins, dear friend, to open a door to a great mystery. He reminds us that when Israelites rebelled, God punished them with snakes. Many people died. The rest cried out for relief. So God told Moses to make a bronze statue of a snake, and to place it on a pole. Any person with snakebite had only to look up at the bronze snake. All doing so were healed, and escaped death (Numbers 21). Now Jesus is like that bronze snake, about to be “lifted up” in order to save others.

How different the “snake” is from John’s picture, “the Lamb of God!” Yet this too recalls ancient stories. God told Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac. Abraham went to do it, confident that “God Himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering” (Genesis 22:8). God did, in fact, send a sheep, which was killed in Isaac’s place.

Later, at the first Passover, each Israelite family killed, roasted and ate a perfect young sheep or goat. They also put its blood over their doors. God said, “When I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt” (Exodus 12:13). Israelites remember every year, at a similar meal, how God once rescued them by lamb’s blood. In fact, perfect male lambs are killed daily at the temple (Numbers 28, 29). Scripture often speaks of sacrifice and blood removing sins.

“The law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness” (Hebrews 9:22).

Now John commands, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29). Is Jesus the perfect sacrifice, which brings us full forgiveness?


Again and again Jesus states His mission – to die! (Matthew 12:40; 16:21; 17:12, 22-23; 20:18-19; 26:32). Just before meeting Nicodemus, Jesus has challenged temple leaders: “Destroy this temple [My body], and I will raise it again in three days” (John 2:19). He soon upsets followers, claiming that His blood and flesh are food, which He “will give for the life of the world” (John 6:32-51). He must die to protect His sheep:

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. I am the good Shepherd. The good Shepherd lays down His life for the sheep” (John 10:10-11).

No one forces this death on Him. He freely chooses to give up life, and to regain it later (John 10:14-18). He foresees that enemies will lift Him up (John 8:28).

“‘…But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.’ He said this to show the kind of death He was going to die” (John 12:32-33).
Jesus’ death paid the ransom to set us free.

All flesh dies, but Jesus’ death is unique. It is the “ransom” paid to set us free (Matthew 20:28; 1 Timothy 2:6). Free from what? Jesus eats His last Passover with His followers. He gives them the bread made without yeast, saying, “This is My body given for you; do this in remembrance of Me” (Luke 22:19). Then all share the grape drink.

“This cup,” He says, “is the New Covenant in My blood” (Luke 22:20).

“It is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins” (Matthew 26:26-28).

Here is the answer: His ransom frees us from sins! God promised this long ago.

“I will make a New Covenant… For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more” (Jeremiah 31:31,34).

But why must God do it this way? Why “must” the Son of Man be lifted up like that bronze statue? Could there be any other way to free me from my sin?

After the last Passover, Jesus takes His followers to a garden called Gethsemane.

After the last Passover, Jesus takes His followers to a garden called Gethsemane. He prays three times to be released from the required suffering. Jesus has faced all death threats with calmness and courage. Yet this death holds much more terror than any other possible death.

Then He said to them,

“‘My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with Me.’ Going a little farther, He fell with His face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from Me. Yet not as I will, but as You will'” (Matthew 26:38-39).

An angel strengthens Him, but brings no message of relief. So Jesus prays “more earnestly, and His sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground” (Luke 22:44). Jesus then arises to meet the police, led by the betrayer, Judas. Peter strikes out to stop the arrest.

“‘Put your sword back in its place,’ Jesus said to him… ‘Do you think I cannot call on My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions [armies] of angels? But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?” (Matthew 26:52-54).


Jewish leaders already reject fair hearings. (They even refused to hear Nicodemus, John 7:50-52.) So Jesus’ disciples desert, scattering in fear. Peter denies that He ever knew Jesus. Jesus alone must endure the all-night show trials, the false witnesses, and the raging accusers.

“Then they spit in His face and struck Him with their fists. Others slapped Him and said, ‘Prophesy to us, Christ. Who hit You?'” (Matthew 26:67-68).
The Jewish leaders choose to release a known murderer, rather than this Rabbi Jesus.

Governor Pilate wants to free Jesus. “For he knew it was out of envy that they had handed Jesus over to him” (Matthew 27:18). The Jewish leaders choose to release a known murderer, rather than this “Rabbi” Jesus. They accuse Pilate of treason, and threaten to riot. So he finally has Jesus stripped and flogged with cutting whips. Guards beat and spit on Him. They mock Him with ‘royal’ clothes. They press a ‘crown’ of thorns into His head.

Then they load heavy wood onto His wounded body. He tries to carry it through Jerusalem. At the place called “Skull” soldiers nail Jesus’ hands and feet to the wood. Then, on this rough cross, they lift Him up! Roman troops, Jews, even two thieves crucified nearby, join in jeering at His shame. They laugh as His blood flows. At noon the sky changes.

“From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land. About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?’ which means, ‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:46).

Jesus cries out twice more:

“It is finished” (John 19:30).

“Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit” (Luke 23:46).

He gives up His life. Joseph of Arimathea, another council member, takes down the dead body. He and Nicodemus wrap the corpse in spices and cloth, then bury it inside a tomb of rock (John 19:38-42).

So Jesus’ words come true: in giving His life, He is lifted up! Jesus on His cross is like the bronze snake on its pole. Look more closely at the meaning. God could use many ways to save those rebellious Israelites. Yet He told Moses to make an image like the thing killing them, a deadly snake.


God pointed toward us and His Son. Our sins and crimes against God are our deadly snakes that poison us. The Son of God becomes the Son of Man, “being made in human likeness” (Philippians 2:7). In His trial and execution, He is treated like the worst criminal. He looks like us and our poisonous sins. His forsaken cry has all the pain we should feel in hell.

“[God sent] His own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so He condemned sin in sinful man” (Romans 8:3).


Look at the Lamb of God. Gaze at the Lifted One. What do you see there? God condemning sin – our sin – placed on His Son! The Lamb taking our guilt and our punishment!

“We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all… He was led like a lamb to the slaughter” (Isaiah 53:6-7).

Look again. Do you see how ugly and damaging our sins are? We have all played our part: we envy and hate, boast and betray, lie and deny, fear and fail. We who accuse deserve to be accused. We who judge deserve God’s judgment. Human hypocrisy and revolt is most clear at the cross. For God came to bring us back to His side, and we hated Him for it.

“Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness” (John 3:19).

“Now, however, they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates My Father as well” (John 15:22-23).

Even today some are, in a spiritual sense, “crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting Him to public disgrace” (Hebrews 6:6). Those who have “treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant,” and who have “insulted the Spirit of grace,” continue today to “trample the Son of God underfoot” (Hebrews 10:29).
Sin turns us against the very One who gives us life.

How sin twists the human heart. How it turns us against the very One who gives us life, the Creator to whom we owe all love. How our selfishness hurts our own lives, and leaves our families in ruins. How much suffering has spread through the world because we left the peaceful ways of God. How our rebellion breaks God’s heart with sorrow.

Dear friend, look at the cross. See the horror of your own sins. See how dearly He loves you. His arms are stretched out on the cross.

They are stretched out to reach you.

They are stretched out to welcome you home.

See the price He pays for you: suffering so that you can live, dying so that you can be born again.

Jesus’ death makes all things right between God and humans.
Jesus said that He would be “lifted up” in order to save lives. By this He meant that He would die on the cross in order to save us.

People used to kill animals in sacrifice to please God, but Jesus was the far better sacrifice. Though He was innocent, He came for the very purpose of dying. On His cross He carried all the wrong things we have done.

His death finally satisfies the full punishment for all sins, making all things right between God and humans.

Memory Verses
1) Exodus 12:13 – “…when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.”

2) John 12:32-33 – “‘…But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.’ He said this to show the kind of death He was going to die.”

3) Isaiah 53:6-7 – “We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all… He was led like a lamb to the slaughter.”

Our hearts are cut deeply by the death of Jesus.
God and Father of Jesus, our hearts are cut deeply by the death of Jesus. On the cross, we see the result and penalty of our own sins. You refuse to turn a blind eye to sin.

Yet, how infinite also is your love for us, the sinners! We truly thank and praise You for such awesome love.

We do not deserve what You did for us. But we truly appreciate it and we want to follow You in faith.

Extra Note: Questions of Responsibility

Jesus uproots falsehood in order to plant truth. Many Jews think that God cares only for their own nation. When Jesus corrects this old view, the people of His hometown try to kill Him (Luke 4). When Jesus heals a blind man, Jewish leaders reject the man’s testimony; they take his blindness as proof that he was “steeped in sin at birth” (John 9:34).

Unfortunately, false ideas grow deep roots. Even today many think that God’s love is limited and sin is a matter of blood and birth. We must pause here to address these matters since they directly affect one’s view of the new birth.

Some religions teach that God condemns people even if they are not personally responsible for sinning. One theory goes like this: Adam’s sin passes to every human conceived. Therefore all humans – even babies – are completely evil; and even as adults they have no ability to make good choices. God must do all the choosing. God selects which individuals will be saved, and which individuals will perish in hell. This means that Jesus died, not for all sinners, but for a limited few. Adam’s sin, they say, keeps even the select few from any ability to believe or obey. Again God must do everything. So, they say, God’s Spirit enters the chosen sinner and forces him to believe and be born again. The problem with these views is that they sound so different from Jesus.

They speak as if man has nothing to do with faith and receiving God’s gifts. Yet Jesus speaks as if Nicodemus has a part in believing and in receiving new birth.
They speak as if man has no real choice. Yet Jesus speaks as if people have both choice and personal responsibility.
They speak as if God’s love and salvation are available to just a few. Yet Jesus states that God’s great love and Gift are for “the world,” that “whoever” believes will be saved.
They speak as if God plays favorites in the way He chooses some individuals and rejects others. Scripture states the opposite. “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation…who fear him and do what is right” (Acts 10:34-35; see Matthew 22:16; Romans 2:11, Galatians 2:6; Ephesians 6:9; Colossians 3:25; 1 Peter 1:17).
They even use the term “limited atonement” for their doctrine. Yet 1 John 2:2 is specific on this point: “He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”
They speak as if children are totally evil. Yet, who does Jesus use to illustrate greatness in God’s kingdom? The little children!

>If their fruit is so different from Jesus’ teaching, we should go back and examine where the roots went wrong. One root has to do with the meaning of sin. They treat sin like a disease that is “hereditary” (passed on by flesh from generation to generation). This leads to the idea that we must sin, and have no power to change, not even to seek God’s help. After all, can you change a weakness – like bad eyesight – that you inherited from your parents? How terrible to think that you can not even try to find a doctor to provide glasses! We all sense how unfair it is to blame people for a bodily weakness they cannot prevent.

Yet this theory presents God as eternally condemning every human – including babies – for the original sin of Adam. The Bible treats sin, not as something inherited, but as Something done – the breaking of God’s law. Notice the active definition: “Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness…All wrong doing is sin” (1 John 3:4; 5:17). Since people are active and make choices, they are held responsible. “So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God” (Romans 14:12; like 2 Corinthians 5:10). This is quite different from being charged and sent to hell for Adam’s sin. God speaks plainly on this matter. We are not condemned for a parent’s sin.

The soul who sins is the one who will die. The son will not share the guilt of the father nor will the father share the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him (Ezekiel 18:20).

Why then is there so much sin and death in the world? There is no biblical teaching of sin spreading in a fleshly or hereditary way. There is clear teaching of sin and spiritual death spreading because people themselves sin.

“Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned…”(Romans 5:12).

People choose Satan’s way. Likewise, they can choose God’s way (Deuteronomy 30; Joshua 24; Proverbs 1; Isaiah 7; Luke 10; John 7). That is why Jesus presents the new birth as a command. God places before us a choice. If we choose to accept birth of water and Spirit, we will live. If we reject it, we will remain in spiritual death.

The Bible reminds us that some have not yet developed ability for moral choices. Isaiah 7:16 speaks of a time “before the boy knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right.” God describes “the little ones” as “your children who do not yet know good from bad” Deuteronomy 1:39. This sounds just like the innocence of Adam and Eve in Genesis 3. Can babies give an account of their own words, thoughts and actions? Obviously not. Yet such accounting is the basis for judgment (Matthew 12; 25; Hebrew 4; Revelation 20). It should be obvious then that children are not judged in the same way as responsible adults. This is confirmed by the fact that the New Testament offers no way for babies to be saved. Babies do not need to be saved because they are safe, as those not yet held responsible. Paul may be suggesting this by speaking of a matter of one’s choice and responsibility. In the same way, one’s response in receiving salvation is a matter of choice and responsible commitment. Scripture clearly shows that one must believe, humble himself, confess, repent and be baptized. Infants cannot respond in any of these ways.

They cannot even be baptized, for biblical baptism is a matter of personal faith and the firm decision to change. (See Mark 16; Acts 2, 8, 16, 22; Galatians 3; Colossians 3; 1 Peter 2.) Sadly, those who think they were baptized as babies went through a human ritual mistakenly called ‘baptism.’ As adults who believe they still need to receive true baptism. The final lessons in this course discuss biblical baptism as it relates to the new birth.


Sins, why are you here?

September 15, 2013ImageSIN.

What is sin? Sin is a mistake or fault unacceptable on Earth as well as in Heaven. And people have sin because it is the desire of our hearts….

I use ‘OUR’ because i am also human, and i make mistake and i am not exempted…

The disobedience of one man resulted for the sufferings of many people but the sufferings of one man result to the life of many people.

Romans 5:15-19


15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16 Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!

18 Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.



In early days of my life I always hear the story of Adan ad Eve, the serpent and the fruit. That they are the reason why people of the Earth are sinners. Yes, this is true because they did not obey God’s instruction not to eat that Fruit, but because the serpent tease Eve, she encourage Adan to eat the fruit as well (Read the book of Genesis 3 ). But on the new testament, Because of God’s love to His creations which is the Man, He has sent His Begotten Son to save us from our sins… (John 3:16) that’s why He said “I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.. John 14:6”

if we will relate the SIN’S topic, before we were born we are a sinner, punishment has been given and punishment has been serve up to now, remember the snake, He will bite by the Woman’s siblings right? and The Man will need to plant before he eats because man needs to cultivate the soil first for them to put the seeds…(Genesis 3)

But come to think of it, where does our Sins came from? Is it from the serpent? from Satan? or from ourselves?

Many will answer this from Satan, from serpent or from ourselves…

And according to our lesson’s earlier the sin came from the desire of our Heart.

It’s inside our heart. The sin is from heaven because Lucifer is an angel from heaven drop off to the land, but Sin is not created by God, but the sin is the negative burning desire of our hearts. We let the pain, negative thought stay in our hearts that results to the negative impact in our life that lead us to commit a mistake or a sins…. God given us a brain, heart and free will to know and elaborate the right and wrong, we are the highest form of His creations who can manipulate all the things He made according to His will and purpose but if we did not obey the rules then we do not follow Him.

I think Acceptance, Humility, Character is way to Good Relationship with Christ…accepting that as human we made mistake and work out to correct the mistakes of our own, be humble in everything we do, keep the faith and keep a good character…


Thank you Lord for the Word.

~P.S I am beginner, if any one can add about this topic i am free to accept whatever contributions you may include~

Thank you

Live by Faith

I cried while reading a lot of posts on my social networking site about God. Of course, lately i was really thinking some thing how can i showcase my talent and use it as my ministry. By means of blogging Im doing this sharing as part of my ministry, again this is not about my life but the Life of Jesus the Son of God, God and the Holy Spirit.

Hebrews 11:1 ESV

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

By believing that God died on the Cross for us, to save us from our sin is part of our Faith to live according to his purpose even we never see Him, we never feel Him but we know that God exists, he is not in the form of anything but in Spirit of Truth because our God lives in Heaven, He is Alive.

And part of my readings is a song from Filipino Artist Gary Valenciano entitle “Natutulog ba ang Diyos” (Is God sleep?)

I will try to translate it in English and I hope Gary V. don’t get mad on me, i just want to share this song to other people in other countries who doesn’t understand our native language..~

Be Happy with the Lord!!!

Today is my first time to attend a real Church Fellowship. Its nice, its fun, happy and I feel blessed though i wasn’t able to finish the awarding of certificate to kids who attended the camp. I get the message Pastor Helen read and share to us:
Philippians 4:4
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!292339_10151204504139665_1596912835_n[1]

* We should be happy actually very happy with the Lord. Always choose happiness over anything else. Some people differentiate happiness on the other way around (like gambling, drinking, partying etc.)but this is not only a simple happiness but REJOICE unto the Lord.Rejoice in the sense that we are happy even we do not have anything, we are happy even if we have problems, as long as God is the Center of our Life, have Faith and Believe that Jesus Christ is our Saviour. In which Pablo encourage the Philippians to rejoice because God is coming. Instead to feel dismay on the mistake of other people bring it up to the Lord and pray. For God listen and He knows what to do with your burdens, in that way you feel at ease in a way that you did not commit a mistake. When Pablo write this letter or message he is a prisoner but He never felt dismay or hopeless because he believe Jesus Christ is with Him that God guide him. In other words, like Pablo we choose happiness over misery even if we have big burdens in our Heart. It’s really difficult at first but we could learned it overtime, over and over and over I say it to you read your Bible. Pray and ask the guide of the Holy Spirit, in that way you can easily understand the meaning of every parables in there. Before I just read on it but a friend(Mons) of mine told me to pray first before reading every verses in the Bible and it really works that slowly I understand. Thanks to you…:) And with this I am happy to grow with what I have now, my Faith which I share to you readers. I am not fully change but I REJOICE and choose happiness, choose the good side over and over….

* Thank you to Myralyn for allowing me to visit their Church. May you continue to grow in Spirit and Blessed with the Lord through Jesus Christ. A real happiness that no need to purchase nor demand nor exchange is a happiness with the Lord Jesus Christ…

In Jesus Name!!! Amen!!!

What is our Purpose?

Ever since I love writing. And this is the reason I was able to create this blog site. But then after opening my hearts through Jesus Christ I understand what is the essence of writing. Before I could only write a blog when I feel lonely, when i feel sad if some one hurts me and I want to write something for them. But now that I found out that learning the acts of a good Christian is not by fighting through God words but a will to share the goodness of the Lord. Before anything else, I would like to seek God’s permission for this:

Dear God;

Heavenly Father, allow me to share your WORD to all my readers, may this blog site become a tool for them to know you better, not to study your life but to accept you in their life, open their hearts and live according to your purpose. May the Holy Spirit guides me in writing, and I could write according to your will and purpose. May you bless each reader and may this blog encourage them to read and open their Bible in that way, they could understand the manual of our Life. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Two nights ago, I browse the book written by Rick Warren titled The Purpose Driven Life, I discover something which is true, there are lots of inspirational and motivational books that out in the market that uses God’s word for self visualization but the purpose is not to create a good relationship to God. Of course I am not against on what they written it is up to the reader whom they believe because God gave us a power to understand each word written in every book. But come to think of it, if the motivational books, inspirational books has come from the Bible I mean excerpted from the Bible then it is GOOD and NICE to know and understand, how? if we read on our BIBLE….

* Wait, i don’t want my readers to feel confuse Rick Warren is one of my inspiration why I write this topic today.

The purpose of living on Earth is not by personal pleasure but for the purpose of God. We cannot understand what is God purpose if we do not read the Manual. The life that we have today is not ours, even this world is not ours. And our Manual is the BIBLE. This is our compass, our route map…

As of today I am still reading the Gospel of John,i do not have a lot to share so far but this: John 1:12.

12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—

~~~: Believe Jesus Christ as the son of God, not just plain believe but live like Jesus Christ. Accept him in your life and live according to God’s purpose. In a way, nobody knows what his purpose but make each day, each life dedicated to HIM. Always be humble…

Increase your Faith and make yourself Holy not in front of other people but in front of God, do not seek other’s approval in your life but only God’s approval. We do not know when He is coming but at least make our selves ready when He comes, because He will come like a theft in the night that nobody knows.

Remember this: Our life purpose is to please God and not anybody else.We may need money to live here on Earth but do not dwell with it too much. Learn to live a simple life and increase your treasure in Heaven. FOr in Heaven we can’t bring anything…

Learning ABC through Christ

Last night I learned the ABC through Christ through the help of my neighbor/friend Mona, SIs Bening, Nanay Norie, Nanay Dodeng. Since 1999 I’m searching, before I am not so sure what I am searching for,I feel empty,I thought my feeling of emptiness is just because of my family. My mother die when I was 10 and my father die when I was 18, the maturity living with out parents is too short and I feel incomplete. But years passed by, I meet people, I read a lot and I discover something different. Until finally last night, some of my question has answered.

Maybe I was destined to meet the people I mentioned above because God has a purpose for me and for my life. I learn the ABC with Christ, to Accept, to Belief and to Confess. The thought is simple yet very helpful… A- accept Jesus Christ with all your heart (John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name) B- Belief that God exist and C- confess all your mistakes.

Actually, there are other Bible verses that we discuss but I do not remember the exact verse except for John 1:12, maybe this gave impact to my life. And of course since I started reading John, partially i read it out before I do to Bible Study.

I know in my heart what I want to do, and I believe that this is happening to me because God knows my future, my past and my present, as what we know our body is the Temple of God, we only borrow this life and Body through Him live the best out of it. Be sacred and holy in the eyes of God.

I do not know how deep i can share but one thing I understand now is where I stand. I want to create a good relationship with God, i don’t care about your religion or where your Church is but as long as you teach and preach the Good way as the Father,as Jesus Christ. I also understand that preaching with His guidance, do not alter nor change what is written on the Holy Bible as this is Sacred.

For the meantime, this is what I can share, read the Book of John. And read your Bible daily as everything is written on the Bible. Like me I want everyone to learn the ABC because if the nation will do it, we can make WORLD PEACE.parang lang

Contenment and Faith

One thing I realize today is how to be contented on God’s blessing… oftenly people tend to ask God why is this happen and why this things are happening?

Basically the answer would be because, God always gave us a problem that he knows we can make it…. It’s part of the test of faith how long can you do it…In everything we do, honor him… Read the bible and focus…Trust HIM…

Earlier I attended a mass in Chapel on the Hill the homily is about Jesus who rise again since today is the 2nd week of Easter. Where Jesus appeared from Maria Magdalena…As the priests says we worship God and Honor him despite we did not actually see Him but our Faith is enough. Like what was being disscuss in the Bible.

Again, I am now in the process of learning the Bible and on my humble opinion we need to be faithfully incline in the WOrds of God, understand it and apply it in general because not everyone who calls God will enter in the Kingdom of God….
