"Repentance Should Be Genuine" from Matthew 3:1-17

NIV Large Print Reference BibleRepentance - turning away from sin; making a U turn. Reflection everyday.

He who conceal his sins will not prosper

Matthew 5:3 "Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
For true repentance; There will be a change in our lifestyle. Change in our behavior and actions. Be slow to speak and quick to listen.
Remember that New years' resolution can not change you.

The meaning:
Baptism of fire is the cleansing process - of purification through the Holy Spirit.

Why was Jesus baptize?

He approved to John ministry. To fulfill all righteousness. Jesus is modelling (or doing) what needs to done, in short He is giving an example.

Baptism is not a religion or way for us to be saved. It is the act of obedience and repentance of sins.

Jesus lived on this Earth as 100% man though He was God.

The Dove - symbolism of the Holy Spirit; purity and peace.
We never pray or make the dove an altar.

Pastor's Message
Hebrews 12:1-2 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

As we face the new year 2011 let us marked some essential words here:
1. Let us throw off/cast "everything" that hinders and sin which can easily entangles/trap us.
2. Let us run with perseverance and endurance.
3. Let us fix our eyes to Jesus / focus on Him.
4. For He is the author (Alpha) and perfect (Omega) He is the Beginning and End.

"Be Sensitive To His Voice" from Matthew 2:13-23

Discerning the Voice of God: How to Recognize When God SpeaksGod spoke to Joseph (fiance of Mary) through dreams. If we want to hear His voice we must not harden our hearts.

Revelation 12:4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.
Here is the plan of Satan as he wants to destroy our Savior.

Be obedient to the guidance we have from God and God will speak more to you.

Joseph was sensitive to God's guidance and willing to do God's will no matter what it takes.

Spend your time with God just like how you spend time with your family, friends, spouse and etc.

Trust in God's plan to follow the example of Joseph.

Nazareth has a constant communication to the world. They have polluted morality. The humility of the King is something we have to admire.

Pastor's Message
As we look at this year 2010, we can say that God has been so faithful to us in His church. First and foremost - God gave us Salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. He also sustains us and meet our needs not just physically but spiritually too and a lot more!
And I also thank the Lord for you my brothers and sisters for your prayers and support. May the Lord bless you and give you a wonderful and spirit-filled Christmas. Let's just continue to hang-on and press on in our journey with the Lord.

Don't forget to invite Jesus as you celebrate Christmas! Feliz Navidad! Noel... Noel!

"Be A Good Leader" from 1 Chronicles 27

The Leadership Training Activity Book: 50 Exercises for Building Effective LeadersActions speaks louder than words as a good leader we must "do as I do" not "do as I say". In short "Be the example".

To be a good leader we must be brave enough to face trials. Paul said to Timothy "for God did not gave us spirit of timidity but the spirit of power."

Even though "we did it" we must not say it is because of our talents.

Keep in mind that "we are not super saints or super Christians".

We must recognize its God who sustains us. Most of the times we only looked upon ourselves but we must recognize that God is the source of all things. As a leader we need to be influencer and NOT to follow the example of the world.

1 John 1:16-17
For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

To be a good example you must get rid of yourself.

A good leader is a servant of all to be faithful in little things - God will give you the big things (important responsibilities).

We must be above the criticism.

Proverbs 18:24 One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin,
but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Let your light shine before men so they will praise your Father in Heaven.

"Jesus Is The Gift" from Matthew 1:18-25 and 2:1-12

The Original Christmas Classics (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer/Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town/Frosty the Snowman/Frosty Returns/Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol/Little Drummer Boy/Cricket on the Hearth)Jesus - Jehovah is salvation or Joshua, in greek "the Messiah".

Fellowship is very important for us in order to grow spiritualy. We shouldn't be (present just on special day) CEO (Christians) - Christmas and Easter Only.

During these special days we are busy and too occupied, and the meaning of Christmas is not just giving gifts but it's about your relationship with Jesus Christ.

Reading God's word is important and receiving His word gladly in our hearts. Have the true meaning and relationship with Jesus Christ.

Christmas is all about glory and grace. God reach out to man for you and me - all we need to think about is Christ. And to Celebrate Christmas with God.

We must be glad as the song goes "Joy to the World".

Recognize God that He is our King. Walk with Him and continue your fellowship with Him.

What can break our fellowship with God?
Our sins. And If we have bitterness and don't have forgiveness, we encourage you to forgive those who sins against you and be compassionate. As God forgave you.

Remember while we are sinners Christ died for our sins. This is the reason of the birth of Jesus Christ - the "Star is Born". And let's keep in mind the meaning of Christmas.

Pastor's Message
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

God reach out to man, by giving us His one and only son Jesus the Messiah. The Wonderful Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father and The Prince of Peace. And this is the MESSAGE of Christmas. It's all about Jesus! And the best gift that you could ever had this Christmas season is Jesus and the eternal life He offers if we believe in Him. May we continue to remind ourselves that the reason of CHRISTmas is JESUS! May we have spirit-filled Christmas and New Year. Let's enjoy and invite Jesus in our parties!

"Jesus Became Man" from Matthew 1:1-14

When Jesus Became God: The Struggle to Define Christianity during the Last Days of RomeIsrael - govern by God

Both Mary and Joseph came from the tribe of Judah.

The theme of the Book of Matthew - To prove Jesus is the King and the Messiah. He is the Christ. We need to rejoice that we are included in His family.



Pastor's Message
Malachi 3:14 You have said, 'It is futile to serve God. What did we gain by carrying out his requirements and going about like mourners before the LORD Almighty?'

God has rebuke the priest and Judah's people because they are unfaithful to God in their offerings, tithes and etc. So God told them to return to Him for If is the God the LORD who does not change! But in this particular verse they said: IT IS FUTILE/USELESS TO SERVE GOD! And this statement was normally used by the people today. Some will say, "you connot earn possessios or riches in serving God". But as for us, we will Serve Him faithfully! For our labor in the Lord is not in vain and it will surely be rewarded.

"Knowing God From The Heart" from 1 Chronicles 25

Experiencing the Heart of Jesus: Knowing His Heart, Feeling His LoveProphesy are accompanied by harps like the book of Psalms specifically in Psalm 22 where Jesus was prophesied.

Music can revive and inspire us in many ways. The bad habit sometimes is that instead of worshipping God - we glorified the pastors, worship leader, the singers etc. . . These are the things we need to avoid. The positive thing - one of the best ways to minister is through music.



When a person develope the talent for example in the worship team they tend to leave the church and make their own band. Our talents came from God so we need to use it for God.

Zaccur - mindful
Jeshaiah - Salvation from Jehova

1 Colosians 3:16-17
Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

"Be Ready" from Revelation 22:12-21

We must be ready for the reward with Jesus

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

All our labors are not in vain. Salvation is free gift. Jesus will give rewards according to what we have done. Remember the parable of Jesus "the faithful servant" in the book of Matthew. God will give us responsibilities in Heaven. As we wait for God serve Him whole heartedly.

Matthew 6:1 "Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven."

When you serve God do it out of love not because others is watching you. Serving Him without hypocrisy. Do not let your right know what your left hand is doing. If you give your tithes to God don't let anyone know. All our efforts will be rewarded by God.

Isaiah 44:6 “This is what the LORD says—
Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty:
I am the first and I am the last;
apart from me there is no God.
As we wait for His coming God will finish what He has started. Therefore as we wait we must be ready.


We are justified. The robe of righteousness must be clean. As we wait for Him go to His word. He is faithful and purify us from all sins.

Being blameless is not being perfect. It is having a heart to repent quickly and do what is right. Blessed is the man who's ways is blameless.

It is so important to do and obey His word - to go back to His commandments.

Avoid the area that will cause us to sin.

Pastor's Message

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Did you ever forget that God is omnipresent? That If is present everywhere? To tell you the truth, sometimes I fail to remember! Because I looked to myself!
But if we go back to what His word says He ASSURED us that God is consistent and faithful to us even in our time of trouble.
So be confident that He constantly puts us in a place of safety / protection. TAKE HEART AND CLING TO HIM! HE IS OUR STRONG TOWER WHEREIN WE CAN HAVE SAFETY.

"He Is Everything That We Need" from Revelation 22:1-11

Revelation (Interpretation Bible Studies)God promise us we will have eternal life and will live forever with our glorified body.
Our curse begin when we gave in to sins that separate us from God. Why are we here if we are cursed?
God didn't make us (human) to be a robot, HE gave us freedom of will and to choose between HIM and Satan, if we want to be restored from our sins or not.

Whenever we are tired remember:
T-tell it to God
I-increase your faith.
R-refresh your spirit, pray.
E-endure, and press on.
D-do it with God, don't do it on your own.

If you're faithful in little things God will give you bigger things - that is bond servant - servant for life.
Servant for life without end that is our relationship with God.

Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

Hebrews 12:14 Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.

1 John 3:2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when he appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

Isaiah 60:19-20
The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end.

God assure us that all these things will happen.

2 Peter 3:8-9
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

In
Revelation 22:8 I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I had heard and seen them, I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who had been showing them to me.
God told us never worship the creation. And John made another mistake.

Five reasons to Worship God:
1) worship God for He is God.
2) Source of all things
3) Judge of Good and evil
4) He holds the power of Life and death
5) It is for our own Good

We must be willing to change. God wants us to wait and be transformed to enter HIS kingdom.

Pastor's Message
Micah 6:13 "Therefore, I have begun to destroy you, to ruin you because of your sins."
The result or consequence of SIN always leads to death and destruction. In this verse, God will deal with sin, he will not ignore and tolerate sin to reign in our lives. Therefore, we need to listen to our conscience, even more so to the Holy Spirit's conviction. Let's remember; "compromise kills!" so let us cut off and clean up our mess, for God is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all righteousness. -1 John 1:9

"Heaven Is Beautiful" from Revelation 21:9-27

In heaven there will be no more sin. All people will never have to fear of any kind of enemy.

Isaiah 60:18 No longer will violence be heard in your land,
nor ruin or destruction within your borders,
but you will call your walls Salvation
and your gates Praise.

God has proven Himself to be always faithful.

The Heaven is indescribable by man if we are going to interpret it from Revelation.

Blue - God
Red - blood of Christ
Green - growing in Spirit
Purple - the royal crown of Jesus

Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

God's people are the temple that is why we need to take good care of our body.

The story of Billy Graham when He describe heaven: Heaven is a home beyond imagination. It is the God's house happy home.

We will sing worship forever in Heaven. No more will there be teachings of God's word because the only reason we are learning the Bible in order for us to go to Heaven so when we are already there all we need to do is worship God.

There will be no night in Heaven.

Isaiah 60:7 All Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to you,
the rams of Nebaioth will serve you;
they will be accepted as offerings on my altar,
and I will adorn my glorious temple.

Isaiah 60:20 Your sun will never set again,
and your moon will wane no more;
the LORD will be your everlasting light,
and your days of sorrow will end.

Ephesians 5:5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a person is an idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.


Pastor's Message

Psalm 37:34a Wait for the Lord and keep His way.
Waiting is one of the hardest thing to do in life because we, man by nature is impatient and quick to follow his own way. But it is so important to WAIT upon the LORD and to persevere and continue to follow His leading until the coming of our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. For God’s timing and HIS ways are far more better than ours.
So let us always remember God said: “BE STILL and KNOW that I AM GOD”.

"Give Your Best" from 1 Chronicles 22

We need to really press on in our relationship with our Lord. To surrender wholly to Him as God set us in His family.

To give our best in serving God 110% as we are not serving men but God.
Serving Christ is a lifetime commitment.

First we experience grace from God to experience the fruit of the Holy Spirit i.e. peace. God is our refuge, strong tower and shield we must realize to always give God our best.


Psalm 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
Hide God's word in our heart in order to guard our heart. As emotions can be deceitful.
Joshua 1:7-8
Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Be strong in the Lord and Don't loose heart never drop the race.

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
2 Timothy 2:1 You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Devote and Seek God then serve. Whatever we do we do it for the Glory of God. Give your best To God.

"All Things Are New" from Revelation 21:1-8

Revelation: Four Views: A Parallel CommentaryRevival starts in our hearts and mind. In the future all things are new and we will experience the new Heaven and new Earth.

John 14:23 Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.
We need to treat our body as the Temple of The Holy Spirit. As our body belong to Christ, the body we live in now is not for ourselves. Offer your body as an instrument of righteousness and not wickedness.



Though we have sickness remember our body is just temporary and this world is not our place. And also God will use certain problems in our life to help us to grow in knowledge in our savior Jesus Christ. In heaven there will be no more death but we will have an everlasting life. All things in the past will be completely erased. We will never say "we experience this and that in the Earth...".

2 Corinthians 5:17 If anyone in Christ, he is a new creation the old has gone the new has come.

The second death is the eternal separation from God. Those who are unbelieving people will be put in the fiery lake of burning sulfur - this is the second death.

We need to refocus our priorities in our life - ask ourselves - God or the things of this world?

Pastor's Message

Psalm 34:19 A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all.
In this verse we notice here that a righteous man not a wicked man has many troubles, for it i not guarantee that when you do good things or become righteous you are free from troubles (ex. Trials, sickness, problems, mourning, persecution and so forth). Our Lord Jesus said: In this world you will have troubles/tribulation not great tribulation, but TAKE HEART! I have overcome the world.
And we can find comfort and assurance as we read the last past of the verse. For is not ourselves, neither our friends nor any other person can rescue us from all our troubles BUT THE LORD. So, be confident that God is able to help you in your time of need! Just take heart and hold on to Christ

"Don't Depend On The Arm of The Flesh" from 1 Chronicles 21

David at this moment is slowly not trusting God, but trusting in his armies.

Don't depend on the arms of the flesh and have a complete trust on God. Don't listen to the voice of Satan.

When David desire to number or count the Israelites to know how great or many his armies, this is the beginning of his pride. Sometimes if we begin to have pride in our heart this also opens the door to Satan's voice

Most of the times people want to please man rather than God.

Intelligence is like the river the deeper it is the less noise.

In 1 Chronicles 21:6-7 But Joab did not include Levi and Benjamin in the numbering, because the king's command was repulsive to him. This command was also evil in the sight of God; so he punished Israel.

God punished the Israelites.

Pride goes before destruction.

Proverbs 19:22 What a man desires is unfailing love; better to be poor than a liar.

People around you will be affected by your sin. We can't say that when we sin "nobody will get affected" as Christians we need to have that genuine faith. Remember the story of Jesus about the pharasees as he prayed "Lord, I am not like the other people as I fast twice a week and read the Bible everyday . . ."
but the tax collector prayed "God have mercy on me a sinner."

Though how many times we prayed and God enero't answer you prayer maybe God is telling you to be humble. As Christians remember we are saved by grace and grace alone.

Without praying it is our pride speaking. God commandment was to pray without ceasing.

Deuteronomy 16:17 Each of you must bring a gift in proportion to the way the Lord your God has blessed you.

The attitude of David as he realize his sins and he listen to God and finally repented.

"Are You In The Book Of Life?" from Revelation 20:11-15

The Book of Life -- 8 vol -- Vol 1-Bible Treasures, Vol 2-Bible Heroes Pioneers, Vol 3- Bible Kings Captains, Vol 4-Bible Prophets Statesmen, Vol 5-Bible Poetry, Vol 6-Life of the Master, Vol-7 Paul Life Letters, Vol 8-Bible Educator Index by Newton Marshall Hall and Irving Francis WoodIf we belong to a certain religion, does that mean we are automatically in the Book of Life?

It's not about what religion you belong, or if you have the right religion, but it's all about having that true relationship with God.


2 Peter 3:7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.

2 Peter 3:10-11 10But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.
11Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives

To be in the center of God's word, and if we are serious and joyful. If we don't have relationship with God then we will experience the second death - our spirit will be thrown in the lake of fire.

Second death is eternal separation from God.

Examine your heart do you think you are worthy to be written in the Book of Life?

Make sure your name is written in the Book of Life, reflect and repent daily. Follow David's prayers "search my heart oh Lord".
To have faith and believe in Jesus Christ

John 3:18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.

1 John 5:11-12 11And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.

The issue is not in the future, but the issue is today and how you live your life, do you have a relationship with God? And if God will judge you, Do you think your name is in the Book of Life?

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Hold on to your faith.

Pastor's Message
Psalm 30:12c I will give you thanks forever.
God's word exhort and urge us to GIVE THANKS! There are a lot of reason why we need to give thanks to God for If created us to give Him pleasure. Second, for If is worthy and is the source of everything. Third, we should give thanks to the Lord for His love endures forever! And we should also give thanks to Him in all circumstances, for this God's will for us in Christ Jesus. Therefore, we should never cease to give Him PRAISE and THANKSGIVING.

"Our Battle is Constant" from 1 Chronicles 20

Casting Crowns Gift Edition (W/Dvd)The enemy is constantly attacking us every single day and always there around us to destroy us.

We need to be watchful and be aware that we are in constant battle as the enemy are always active.
In the book of Philippians we can do all things with God so we don't need to put it all in our hands.

Sometimes if we are harsh and quickly judge people. It could only mean that we are doing sins in our life and we tend to be judgmental - to quickly jump into conclusion.

If we fall into sins, the most important step to do is to get up and be careful.

Overcome the giants in our life - it could be the problems, etc...

God is much bigger than our problems. As we trust in the Lord, even in our trials the enemy will be defeated. It was all about the grace of God that we can overcome all our problems.

We need to listen to the voice of truth.

"You/We Are In Waiting Side" from Revelation 20:1-10

Waiting for God: The Complete SeriesSatan cannot deceive His people. We are in the waiting.

We can over come Satan not from our won strength but by strength of God as we don't have any power to overcome the enemy by our own self.
Satan can use Bible verses. Condemnation is from Satan and not from God. Conviction is from God.

Matthew 24:24 For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.

Revelation 20:8 and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.
=>talking about the Church

If we hold on to the truth we are in winning side. We are in victory with Christ. Wear the armor of God. And hold on to the word of God, to abide in God so we will bear much fruit. The fruits are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and faithfulness.

We should not be easily angered...
Pray for your enemy.

Romans 8:17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

If we all hold in the promise of Jesus we will live - though our body will die.

The first death is physical and the second death is spiritual. If we don't abide in God our spirit will die and go to hell.
Resurrection - standing up again and rise from the dead.


1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

Jesus was the perfect sacrifice for our sins to enjoy our blessings, all we need to do is to cry out to Jesus - He is the way the truth and the Life.

Be vigilant and self control as Satan will devour us up and will destroy our family, ministry, and everything - if you let Satan.

Psalm 76:6-8
6 At your rebuke, O God of Jacob,
both horse and chariot lie still.

7 You alone are to be feared.
Who can stand before you when you are angry?

8 From heaven you pronounced judgment,
and the land feared and was quiet-


Psalm 25:10 All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful
for those who keep the demands of his covenant.

Angel - means messenger of God.

Pastor's Message
Matthew 20:28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
In the context of this verse, the mother of John and James came to Jesus to ask a favor that her sons should sit at the right and left side of Jesus. In other words, she want her sons to be elevated, well known and to have a high position in the kingdom. In contrast, Jesus said: "I did not come to be served, I made myself emptied."
For us we need to follow the footstep of Jesus, taking the very nature of a servant. He said, if you want to be great in God's kingdom learn to be a servant of all. SERVE HIM BELOVED.

"He Will Come Again" from Revelation 19:11-21

Christ Will Come Again: Hope for the Second Coming of JesusHe will come again or Jesus will come again. Do you remember how some people believed or predicted the coming of Christ?
Just like last week was Oct. 10 2010 (10-10-10) many people believed that Jesus will come on that date. But where is He now?

Jesus said "I will come like the thief in the night..."

To explain; a thief will never tell you when and what time he will come. Nobody will know the exact time and place.
Jesus is faithful as He will go back to the Earth and in the book of John, He said "I am the way the truth and the life. . ."

Hebrews 11:1-2 1Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. 2This is what the ancients were commended for.

Revelation 19:12 His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.
means - This is the rightful judgement.

Luke 10:22 "All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."

Revelation 19:13 We must be reminded that Jesus sacrifce Himself that by this blood our sins was forgiven. This sacrifice is never our own effort He only paid for remissions of our sins.

We have to know Jesus Better not bitter.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
who was the word?
Jesus

A lot of people will say today that the Bible is not true. But God's word are complete all you questions in life example financial, personal, love-life, etc... all the answers can be found in the Bible.

God can talk to us if you read your Bible. For us, we need to spend time with God daily.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.

As human we are sinners and without the power of the Holy Spirit we are nothing. Jesus is our Savior and also our Lord as God become flesh through Jesus Christ.

Revelation 19:16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

The nature in our society is blaming God.

If you receive the mark of the beast you will not go to heaven. And if you have no relationship with the Lord today, you have no space in heaven and are bound to experience the 7-years of Great Tribulations.

We need to consider our personal relationship with God today and repent from our sins. We also need to respond to God and knowing His word and praying.

(Reference in Revelation:
The Beast = The Anti-Christ)


Pastor's Message
For the king trusts in the LORD;
through the unfailing love of the Most High
he will not be shaken.
David's example as a king is terrific - he trusted in the Lord and cling to His unfailing LOVE, not leaning in his own strength and position in life. And not only that, he also understand and distinguish in the first place that it's not because of his whole commitment that he will not be shaken but because of God's unwavering/steady love.
Therefore, as His disciples let's continue to do these basic things: TO TRUST and grip to His lasting LOVE. WE NEED HIS LOVE ALL THE TIME.

"God Will Give Victory" from 1 Chronicles 18

Jesus and the Victory of God (Christian Origins and the Question of God, Volume 2)David brought down the enemy - our flesh and Demon.

(Remember Jesus, He prayed and fast for 40 days and nights.)

Moabites - are the decendant of Lot.
Lot - nephew of Abraham (Genesis 12:5) they lived in Sodom (Genesis 13) and Genesis 19:1-29

Always be on guard from the scheme of the enemy. God wants us to be dependent on Him. God words are real and genuine. The Lord gave David the victory as God promised.

As Christians God will preserve and protect us.

Psalm 23
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,

3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.

4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever.

God is enough for us, and in Him we ca find victory. Even if we have plenty of blessings we must keep God in our heart and ask for Him everyday - dedicate everything (success and victory) to God.

James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

Don't take the credit for what God has done.

Psalm 121:7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;

Jeremiah 23:5-6
5 "The days are coming," declares the LORD,
"when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch,
a King who will reign wisely
and do what is just and right in the land.

6 In his days Judah will be saved
and Israel will live in safety.
This is the name by which he will be called:
The LORD Our Righteousness.

David was the great King and in his blood line - Jesus came from David branch.

Enemy - are the world and flesh.

If you want to overcome the world, you only need to believe in Jesus as the Son of God. Surrendering to God is victory.

"Hallelujah" from Revelation 19:1-10

TidingsHallelujah - jah = Yaweh or Elijah

Worship is in your heart not about your gestures and not on how good you sing. You have to focus your attention to the Lord.

Glory - doxa

Deuteronomy 32:4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect,
and all his ways are just.
A faithful God who does no wrong,
upright and just is he.

Even in our trials and problems we need to worship God.

24 Elders are the 12 tribes of Israel and 12 Apostles also include creatures = Lion - Jesus the Messaiah in the cool of Matthew, Ox - servant, facad like man or son of man, from the book of John the flying eagle

1 Chronicles 16:36 Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.
Then all the people said "Amen" and "Praise the LORD."

A servant of God are those who have relationship with God not just the Pastors or workers at the Church.

We worship God in so many ways like using your voice, using instruments, even working for God. Praising Him for His goodness.

Psalm 150:6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.

Omnipotent - all powerful God.

Sometimes people are doubting the power of God. You need to meditate God's word day and night.

Praising the Lord is not just when you are happy it may be hard but we need to worship God in our sadness.

Worshiping God is being wise. Not in the legalistic way. As He is omnipotent and all powerful.

When you forget your First Love:
Remember - God
Repent - change your ways from being a sinner to righteousness.
Repeat - refresh our relation with God.

Romans 3:22-24 22This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, 23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

Worshiping God is an overwhelming experience.

Pastor's Message
Psalm 14:1 "The fool says in his heart, THERE IS NO GOD."
Many people today believe that there’s no such thing as "God" just like the Atheists. But in this verse the psalmist says "only the fool would say there is no God" because his heart is not open to the truth about God. As Christians we believe and we are convinced that there is God, for His creation revealed His majesty. And it is only the God of heavens who can make human beings and give us life. Therefore, let us continue to worship our Lord, our Creator, the Maker of us all.

"God is Faithful" From 1 Chronicles 17

God Is FaithfulDavid was a man of war this was the reason why God didn't allow him to build a temple.
God is our defender and He is always faithful.
Know that Love and faith will sparks activities. God has given us His word in order for us to do something for Him.
David was willing to note according to God's timing. A man always seeking advice of God through prayers.


God promises are Yes and Amen. We need to realize and acknowledge the faithfulness of God. There is no one like our God.

We need to remember God's love when He rescue us from Hell. We need to be thankful. And follow the example of David - not to complain and always pray for everything.

"The Enemy Will Never Raise Again" from Revelation 18:1-24

Revelation SongWhen Paul wrote the book of Revelation they were under the Roman empire.

The main points of the verses in Revelation 18 are for us to come out of the sin and not to stay on the mud.

You know that it is a sin yet you continue to do it, that is the influence of anti-Christ.

God is going to judge us.

For we should keep ourselves pure and to be clean and not contaminated.

We need to go back to Jesus you can't serve both God and sin.

Wisdom from the Devil are being arrogant always stating "me myself and I and wants honors and rewards" but wisdom from God are being humble, loving and making yourself available to God.

Therefore, we need to fully dedicate our life to God as our labors for Him are never in vain.

All the riches of this world are temporary. And in the end times people will be lovers of themselves.

As Christians we need to be reminded that we are citizens of heaven. If you're living for heaven then focus your mind to God. In heaven Satan will never raise.

Forgetting what lies behind. And focus to Jesus.

Pastor's Message
Psalm 14:1 "The fool says in his heart, THERE IS NO GOD."

Many people today believe that there's no such thing as "God" just like the Atheists. But in this verse the psalmist says "only the fool would say there is no God" because his heart is not open to the truth about God. As Christians we believe and we are convinced that there is God, for His creation revealed His majesty. And it is only the God of heavens who can make human beings and give us life. Therefore, let us continue to worship our Lord, our Creator, the Maker of us all.
