The best teacher!

The teaching of Jesus—the richest food and the tastiest.

Today, I remembered My first love.
He said, “Return to me you who hide in the cleft of the rock. Come up my bride.”
Lord Jesus, if my heart is not right with you then tell me.

How wonderful and sweet it is to talk with my Father!

I was reminded of my humble beginning…
Those we’re the days when I was so depressed and sick and wanted to die, days, weeks and months…perplexed, bewildered …and there He rescued me. I was left with videos of Jesus stories (animated version)…simple yet so helpful. Repeatedly, that CD plays as if it never stops from sunrise to sunset till I kiss my pillow to sleep. Each day I was dying, but every day I listened to it, as I watched it and as it slowly envelops my being, captivating my soul,then I was relive, revive or born again. Thank you for your teaching Lord. I could have been lost, but now I’m found.
#Jesus my healer.

Gossip and Slander

A very powerful message today in the church:

Libel-and-Slander

Gossip – libak, chismis
Slander – backbite, backfight, backstab
– #1 cause of disunity, division and fight

It’s easy to become a shooter or a murderer by gossiping or slandering someone. Ginapugutan mo na ug ulo ang tao na galakaw sa street by talking bad about him behind his back. Wala xa kblo galakaw n diay xa na wala nay ulo kay gi-slander nman xa.

If you are a hearer/listener or receiver of gossips, you are giving Satan the foothold on you.

Foothold–legal right to control or support someone or something

If you are doer of gossips or ikaw mismo ga-talk sa gossip, ug ishare nimo sa uban, you become Satan’s spokesman.

React: So if someone who’s bringing gossips about someone or something, as believers, let’s just say, “Ipray nlng nato na…anyway, basura mn na na issue gud…dili mn ko basurahan para mudawat ana.” Then change topic.

If we share something, let’s make sure it edifies, encourage the body, the church, an individual, a neighbor, a brother or a sister.

All of us are indeed victims of the spirit of gossips yet, it’s easier for a murderer or a rapist to admit his crime than for a gossiper to admit that he is a gossiper, agree?

Sa tanan nkong na-libak or na-slander either directly or indirectly dri sakong FB friendslist or even na share-an ug gossip, I ask for your forgiveness.

Ug tungod kay dili mn ta ganahan i-backstab ta, so dili pd nato buhaton sa uban knowing how it feels, it hurts.

Ana sila, lisod mn na…na dili jud ta maka-libak, dili jud na maiwasan.
No! Gossip is from hell. It must not dwell in the lives of Christian believers.

How to be delivered from this?

“Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.”

If naa tay dubok na ginatagoan satung heart sa dugay nang panahon, ato ning irelease. Like volcanoes, it will erupt if magkadugay, ma-intensify… ang result: all the people around you will be affected.

So it starts from the heart. If there are lots of hatred, bitterness, unforgiveness satung heart na wala nato na-release, let’s start to release it now. We need first an inner healing.

‪#‎Luke‬ 6:45 says, “A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”

‪#‎Romans‬ 12
‪#‎James‬ 3:1-12

‪#‎Matthew‬ 12:36
“But I say to you that for every idle (basura/thrash/ bad/ dirty/ detestable/ hateful/ damnable word) men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.”

To God be the glory!

There’s no other way

 

Jesus is the way, the only way, the truth and the life.
It’s not about us to purchase or receive the gift of healing or to be spiritual to heal or to complicate things by learning a lot of doctrines on how to heal. It’s so simple = it’s because of the stripped of Jesus’ back, the nails on His hands and the shedding of His blood that set us free and healed us. So when you pray to the sick, don’t center on yourself by asking, “Am I spiritual today?” or “…do I have this gift of healing to heal the sick?” But only say, “It’s because Jesus love to heal sick people.” so put your FAITH in Jesus and be healed.

Sabbath (Hebrew); Sabado (Spanish); Saturday (English) =the 7th day, holy day to the Lord

Sabbath day = Sabado (Spanish); Saturday (English) = 7th day is the real holy day of the Lord Jesus.
Sun-day worship is a pagan worship to the Sun god which was introduced by Constantine that’s why he changed the original Sabbath day which is Saturday into Sunday to worship his Sun-god and called it Sun-day worship as we are all following now (even Christians) after he (Constantine) succeeded in uniting the church and the state.
