"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.
