"Be Close to Jesus" from 2 Kings 11

The life of Martin Luther is one of the most fascinating stories in the history of Christianity. It has all the stuff of a good novel: parental conflict, spiritual agony, life-changing moments, near-misses, princes, popes, emperors, castles, kidnapping, mobs, revolution, massacres, politics, courage, controversy, disguises, daring escapes, humor and romance. And not only is it a good story, it marks a major turning point in western history and in Christianity.

Luther was struck by the power of the simple phrase. He meditated on its meaning for several days, and the full significance of the passage changed his life. No longer terrified of God or enslaved by the system of religious merits, Luther was finally able to rest in the knowledge that faith was all that was necessary to save him. The new perspective became evident in his lectures and conversations with other faculty, and before long his ideas became prominent at the University of Wittenburg.

The kindness of God will lead us to repentance.
We need to humble ourselves before God as He is not looking for those who are in higher position.

Athaliah wants to be the queen of Judea. Thou she became one it was not for long.
God drop those who boast. When we come to God He is our refuge. We live by faith not by sight.

Satan will try to cut off the decendants of the Mesiah.

Jesus will spit us out of His mouth when we are luke warm - those who do not heed God's word, people who are getting worse.
The next we should know to be close to Jesus is that God will rescue us. Rejoicing that God is faithful and we should not complain.
If we are so relax we sometimes forget the Lord. Whenever we are healthy and strong we enjoyed our life so much and forget the Lord.

Even thou we are not faithful Jesus died for us. If we want to be close to God, He wants to occupy our hearts, focus our mind and hearts to God, give Him time and honour. Don't treat God like a mall with shopping list that you want Him to be done. We need to talk to God. And Let Him be above all things.

To be with God expect Him to speak to you and let help Him you with all your trials.

"Watch and Learn" from Jude 12

Watchful against the false teachers, defending our faith is not by debate but sticking to the word of God. To encourage us and continue with our faith. And abiding ourself in God's Love.

To watch and learn - we need to be on guard not to judge others. It is not about being perfect.
We need to be humble not to attract attention to yourself. They atonish for some time but it shattered in the darkness.

Proverbs 19:2 It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.


We need to have the personal relationship with the Lord. Approach God directly. You are considered unGODLY if you don't have any relationship with God, as God knows our heart.

1 Timothy 6:5 and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.


Romans 10:17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.


To build ourselves in the most Holy Faith. Pray in the spirit in all occassions, we can do it by directing and be lead by the Holy Spirit.

Pastor's Message
Psalm 36:7 "How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings"


We connot buy God's love, it is beyond price. No matter how rich you are, you can't still pay for it. But we can experience God's love because it is free for all of us. He is the God of love and He loves every single person in this world no matter who we are. O, how awesome and how great is the Love of God for us.

"Happy Valentines" from Romans 8:38

"Happy Valentines" from Romans 8:11-38
By Pastor Ken Pascua

What is the five letter word that represent Valentines?

God is for us who can be against us?
God is more powerful than anything on this Earth, God made everything. God didn't created a devil but He created a beautiful Angel who has a free will and that angel chose to go against God - become Satan.
We shouldn't be worry in our everyday needs as God is for us He already won the battle.

Jesus Christ lay down Is life for us. And when HE was on that cross HE was thinking of us. To give us Hope for eternal life.

Psalm 37:4 NIV
Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

God's will to accomplish in our lives as HE has better things and plans for us.
We need to be reminded the wages of sin is death - Jesus took the it for us. It is finish. We are righteous in the eyes of God as He has loving and compassion, gracious God. Remember the story of The Prodigal Son?

Jesus is praying for us.

Jesus Prays for All Believers
John 17:20 "My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,

Maybe you have problems with your relationship but never give up.

When we became a Christian we sign in for "persecution". Jesus goes in persecution. What will happen if we have no persecution? We grew weaker. We get more stronger when we have persecution. Jesus took the punishment but there are consequences in sin we make.
He gives us the Holy Spirit to overcome everything because this life is temporary. There's no garanty how long we are going to live.

For us we might not experienced we are murdered like Jesus, but we are all experience gossip and lies about us - we shouldn't be worrying about.
If you fully surrender to HIM we are conquerors. God has everlasting life for us. As Christian we should think that our body is moving to the more glorified body.

We don't need to fear death nor if our body will go old and weary. We see the book of Romans on how He sanctifies, justifies, and glorifies.

He who start the work in you will finish the work in you.

How do you see God's love in you?

We don't see direct love of God for you in creation.
God shows that in His word. We should not read the Bible like a text book. We don't want to filled with knowledge but read it with Love when we communicate it directly to God. Ask Lord how can I apply this to my life, listen to the Holy Spirit speaking in that verse.

Now, how can experience God's Love?

When we are talking to God and communicate fall in love in prayer. Talk with God every moment. Fall in love know and experience God's love for you.

Pastor's Message
Psalm 32:1 "Blessed is he whose transgression are forgiven, whose sin are covered."

This is the story behind this Psalm of David: He committed this terrible sin - sexual immorarily (adultery) & murder and he tried to hide it from God. But the Prophet Nathan rebuked him, he repented and asked God to forgive him. God listened to David, that's why he is able to speak out, "I am so blessed even if I crossed the line (transgressions)".
Let us be assured that we are forgiven and our sins are covered by the blood of Jesus Christ. God doesn't keep a list of charge against us, we only have to repent quickly when we sin.

"Deal with Your Heart" from 2 Kings 10

In the city today we can see a lot of campaign banner for election, it is so important to know their motives.

Thou we are not perfect let us be molded from God. The first thing we need to deal with our heart.

We must live a blameless life, the word "blameless" means "not perfect" but when we made mistake, we must repent quickly, just like King David he may fail in some areas but he repented and lived a blameless life.

And in dealing with our own hearts; we need to die in our flesh, for us flesh is against the spirit as our flesh want to win, and you will reap what you sow.

In our Christian walk we always have enemy and one of our enemy is pride.

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

In anything you do, do it for God glory, and not show off to be seen by man.

When you pray don't be like a hypocrite = means pray with a right heart. So that it will be answered.

Make sure when you serve God don't forget yourself, don't forget your family because our first ministry is our family. Sometimes we do our ministry outside but it is hard for us to minister our own family, be an example to our family.

Search our own hearts and let God fill you with His Holy Spirit. I need you Lord to change and transform me. Devotion must be highlight in our Christian life, we must be sincere with the Lord.
What counts is our relationship today with our Lord and not what happens yesterday.

"Defend Our Faith" from Jude 1-11

The Book of Jude is all about defending our faith.
We may always say have faith but when trials come our faith fades.
Jude consider himself a servant of Jesus Christ even thou he is a half brother of Jesus, we need to be humble when we want to grow our faith. As by nature people want to be served and not humble. Be humble physically and most of all inside our heart because the reality - we are nothing, we are saved by grace.

To be able to please God and grow we need to depend on Him and to be fruitful, to know what being humble is all about.

In order to defend our faith we need to grow, have peace and Love. Continue to be grounded and dependent on His word.

How do we protect our faith when we are being target as hypocrite?

Hypocrisy is when you act not to sin but inside your heart you are thinking bad.
But if you obey God's word and you fail sometimes then we are not a hypocrite because we are trying our best to change our ways. Acknowledge our sins and repent.
Nobody's perfect, look only to God for perfections - not to Christians.

When we obey God's word we don't pleases man, keep in mind we are not a pleaser of man but to God only. All of us needs to contend our faith.

Pastor's Message
Psalm 27:14 "Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord."

I can remember the song entitled "While I'm Waiting".
The song says
"I will serve you while I'm waiting. I will worship while I'm waiting.. . I'll be running the race even while I wait."
We really need to continue on with our walk with the Lord. We must be strong in Him, while waiting for His coming, so that we can finish the race!
I encourage you to press on and do not give up as you wait for the LORD.
