"Pleased God Not Man" from 2 Kings 16

Do we need to please man all the time?

Ahaz was the wicked king in Israel.


  • Don't call Lord, Lord! if you are not doing what He commanded you.

  • Do not pleased man and not doing what are right in the eyes of the Lord.

  • Pleased God before man.


Leviticus 18:21 Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molech, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the LORD.


Some of the people today want to have an abortion because they do not want responsibilities. Abortion is detestable in the Eyes of God.

Some of us have problems all the time be it physically, mentally, emotionaly or spiritually. If you need help the source is God.

We need to commit everything to God, as we remain faithless God will remain faithful.

Remember to obey is better than sacrifice.
God wants us to pleased Him, He doesn't require us to pleased man. Serve God but first be on the side of God. Search your heart and be right with the Lord you intentions of doing what is right. We are not saying to be perfect but we should be blameless and not continue to sin.
Obey God rather than man.

"Do Not Compromise" from Revelation 2:12-17

In order for any plant to grow healthy, the gardener should remove the weeds around it. As Christians we are all sinners but we must always try to "Remove the weeds" in our life. The weeds are our sins.

Divide ourself to those "whom" don't have any relationship with the Lord. Allow God's word penetrate our hearts.

Our faith came from Jesus not from us.
Antipas was the person that would not renounce his faith and he was fried to death.

For more information about Balaam look at Numbers 22:1-25
He was prophet of God who used a gift to earn money.

1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;


Do not let your body to be an instrument for sin but offer it as living sacrifice to God an instrument for righteousness.

Hidden Manna is from the book of Hebrew
It is the true bread of life.

White stone is the ticket or admission to feast, in other words our ticket to go to heaven is our faith. Also means you're not guilty but righteous.
Black stone opposite of white stone, if the person is guilty then he/she can not enter.

Keep your focus in the kingdom of God.

Pastor's Message
2 Timothy 1:6 NIV
For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.

I was reminded that when the Lord had given me his spiritual gifts, I need to use it and cultivate it. In other words, we should not allow it to be stagnant. So I encourage you to use your spiritual GIFT to build you up and the church. And specially use it for HIS glory.

"Be Excellent on What is Good" from 2 Kings 15

Being excellent is more than being improving. Salvation in our relationship in the Lord is needed and also truly embracing Jesus in our life.

What is the root of every evil?
For the love of money is the root of evil and disobeying the law of God.

James 4:1-3 1What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires that battle within you? 2You want something but don't get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God. 3When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.


Being prideful with our position is dangerous, thinking you have the power.
Murder is not just you kill a person physicaly but it can be done if you have hatred in your heart.

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things
and beyond cure.
Who can understand it?


Shallum - means Revenge
Azariah - the Lord is my help
Amaziah - The Lord is my Strength

"Endure Hardship" from Revelation 2:8

This chapter talks about persecution in our lives. Those who live a godly life will be persecuted, we must suffer persecution if we want to grow.

For us to endure hardship we must know Jesus Christ as He is eternal God the alpha and omega.

Jesus Christ gives us assurance to whatever things we are experiencing - Jesus already know it. If we look to Jesus at the cross it will remind us that our burdens are light. (Compare to our hardship today from the persecution before are extreme.)

If you try to please man then you are not a servant of God. Please God not man.

If you are a worker your peer pressure are your co-worker whenever you prioritize your work before them.

If you are a businessman your peer pressure will be your business partners, whenever they wanted you to cheat but you prioritize righteousness before them.

Some of the persecution of Christians today are calling us "hypocrite".
We are all sinners but when we correct the things we have done - we are not hypocrite by doing the right things.

In this world we will experience tribulations Jesus know everything even the people who persecute you. Leave room for Jesus to revenge for them and do not be afraid.

2 Corinthians 10

Jesus allows us to suffer gossip, slander and struggles to make us stronger.

How many times did the Bible mentioned "do not be afraid" and "do not fear"?

Matthew 10:28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.


Pastor’s Message
1 Timothy 4:8 "For physical training is of value, but godliness has value for all things..."

Do you want to be healthy and fit? Physical exercise is a good thing, it will make your body active and healthy. But spiritual exercise is much more important. For it will make our spiritual life healthy. And we need to exercise our spirit daily by reading God’s word, praying, memorizing scriptures and fellowship. Stay halthy inside and out! God Bless.


answer:
"Do not be afraid" was mentioned 65 times and
"Do not fear" was mentioned 18 times.

"Don't Puff Up" from 2 Kings 14

Amaziah did right in the eyes of the Lord but not as his father David had done. David did commit sins but he was in constant "repentance" - that is more important in our relationship with God, to keep asking God for His love and repentance. We can be good and may please God but for some, do not do it whole heartedly.

Be careful not to do the act of righteousness before man, you will not have treasure in heaven. We must be pleaser of God not of men as God sees what inside our heart.

Be careful with your blessings.

We should not take revenge, leave room for God to take revenge. Whenever we think of revenge it means we have pride in our heart which is wrong. In every relationship we must be careful with pride, and in our relationship with the Lord. Amaziah took revenge of his father.

Knowledge puff up but Love builts up.

Pride goes before fall.

Don't be over confident.
2 Chronicles 25:25-27 25 Amaziah son of Joash king of Judah lived for fifteen years after the death of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel. 26 As for the other events of Amaziah's reign, from beginning to end, are they not written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel? 27 From the time that Amaziah turned away from following the LORD, they conspired against him in Jerusalem and he fled to Lachish, but they sent men after him to Lachish and killed him there.

Abide in the Lord means to be sensitive to Him.

"Don't Neglect Jesus" from Revelation 2:1-7

Don't Neglect Our first priority our relationship with the Lord.

"To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:
These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands: 2I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. 3You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. 4Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. 5Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. 6But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.


The meaning of the angels in revelation are the messengers.

7 Stars - angels of 7 churches

The church of Ephesus:
They are hardworking, with perseverance and do not tolerate wicked man, but they don't have Jesus in their hearts.

Even if we do our ministry and our tasks in the church we must always remember "Do not forget our relationship with the Lord".

The source of everything is our love with Jesus Christ and we need that Love.

What is our first love?

It is our devotion with our Lord. Sometimes we pray but we don't mean it. Thou we say the right words but we don't mean it with our hearts then it's useless.

It doesn't matter how many years we serve the Lord, but the real concern of God is our Love for Him.

The meaning of 1st:
Love for you brothers.
Love for the second coming of Jesus.

Matthew 22:37 Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'


The best way to express love is time. Giving Jesus our time for devotion.

Revelation 3:19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.


We need to have a listening mind and heart to know what is God saying. Remain in the Love of God.

Pastor's Message
Psalm 55:22 "Cast your cares on the LORD
and he will sustain you;
he will never let the righteous fall."

Do you know that God is concern about you? Even if He seems so far away, the Lord showed us that He love and care for us through His word. It's written in Psalm that we need to cast or to "Throw" all our concerns and worries to Him. May we have the attitude of giving up all our problems to Him knowing that God will take care of it of help us with our problems. Let's "throw it ALL to Him!"

"Jesus is Great" from Revelation 1:9-20

Revelation 1:3 Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.


The book of revelation talks about judgement
revelation in greek word means apocalypse, it is the book for those who are seeking the truth.

James 5:7-8
7Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains. 8You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near.



For us to endure hardship we need the Holy Spirit and let us be overflow with the Holy Spirit to endure everything as all strength are found in Jesus.

When we are in the Spirit, it is easy for God to speak to us and hear God's voice.

The seven (7) churches in Revelation:



  1. Ephesus

  2. Smyrna

  3. Pergamum

  4. Thyatira

  5. Sardis

  6. Philadelphia

  7. Laodicea


Daniel 10:5-6
5I looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen, with a belt of the finest gold around his waist. 6 His body was like chrysolite, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude.


Bronze symbolizes judgement.
His sound is like rushing waters means His word has power and authority and must be heard - simply listen to the voice of God.

God's word can wash and transforms us. And it can go to the deepest part of our heart if we only allow it to penetrate.

Revelation 1:20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.


Pastor's Message
Psalm 44:21b He knows the secrets of the heart


Man can identify what's inside our hearts by what comes out of our mouths, for out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. The psalmist wrote that God knows the secrets of the heart. In other words, He knows what's going on inside our hearts, such as the hidden sins, our struggles, anger, unforgiveness, the sin we habitually do and others things. God is omniscient. We need to have integrity and be honest to Him.

"Keep Up the Good Work" from 2 Kings 12

If you are aiming for a higher position then you must keep up the good work. This is the same with our relationship with the Lord, He wants us to finish the race.

Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.
We need to please God with our own body like avoiding sexual immorality, and other things that can damage our body for example drugs, cigarettes, too much alcohol, etc.

Whether if your working in the ministry, office or at home, we need to please God and do everything in the glory of God. Complete honesty is required and be sincere with our work - work for God and not for people.

The best way to express your love is spend your time. Spend time with God.

Sometimes we are so relax and we don't have to sweat Spiritualy.

Do
Pray
Trust In the Lord with all your heart
Act with full confidence and be
Thankful.

God gives the power and we should serve Him the glory.
