"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.

Sibbecai - the Lord sustain.
One talent is equivalent to 34 kgs.

"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?

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:

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

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.
