THE VOICE

“I am scared, is anyone there? I’m here in hell, is anyone there? I scream and yell but no one opens the door. Is anyone there? Please listen to our moans and listen to our pain. Is anyone there? People are dying, my friend is dying. I call out again and again but why don’t you answer. Is anyone there?”

The above statement is not a common statement re-posted on Facebook nor re-tweeted in Twitter, but a fragment of the poem written by a former north Korean defector, Ji Hyeon A.

I take this opportunity to ask you for a moment or more to pray for North Korea especially to North Koreans who are imprisoned in their own terrifying country facing human rights’ violations such as forced abortion, forced hard labor, rape, starvation, summary executions and many others–these are conditions that amount to crimes against humanity.

If you’d say, “We have enough crisis on our own countries..so why do we care about theirs?”, don’t you think you’d be happy to hear these same statements from them if we’d swap situations…if we become north Koreans and them become like us….enjoying democracy?

My heart is pained when instead of us, of course including myself, could have think of caring, helping, praying or even pausing to silently or to the least of secretly sympathizing to the destitutes or humanly violated creatures, have gone along with our usual days pitying ourselves on how people care about how we looked like in the outside, on about how quick and frequent we could post on social medias our recent life’s status and even our private lives as if the world care about knowing ’em. When in fact, we can save those wasted time to learn more about other creatures out there that the medias didn’t covered on their news. That there are Christians killed every day in an underground church and prison camps in China, Russia, Pakistan, India, Iraq…while we are not even true to our faith here in our country even though we are enjoying the freedom of worship or religion. That there are hungry and starving out there and we are enjoying here our comfort zones, not even sharing our blessings to the nearest beggar that pull the end of our trousers just to get our attentions. That instead of thanking the cook for a well-presented food on the platter, we never realized what type of food the prisoners are munching, if those are even food for humans or for dogs.

There’s so much to say…but expressing my concern wouldn’t even help solve these problems, but you can make a difference. You can help. You are a warrior, not a worrier. You are whole, healed and delivered.

Last night, I was reading the book of 1 Samuel (from the Bible) about the story of David and Goliath. Although I have read it couple of times, running my eyes through the pages still have an impression of new experience, since every day we face our giants–such as worries, anxities, doubts, fears, losing hope, persecutions, poverty, sickness, unforgiveness, hurts, guilts, self-pity, vanity, setbacks, and many others.

Do you know that WORDS have the POWER over a giant?

 

READ: 1 Samuel 17:45-47 King James Version (KJV)

45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

46 This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

47 And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands.”

Believing on the Words, the very words that he uttered, David fought a good fight and won the battle since the battle is not his but the LORD’s.

North Korea has been a threat to us not just to the north Koreans themselves with their mad dictator Kim Jong-un, unsurprisingly unpredictable, but to the neighboring countries in the east Asia and to the rest of the world. Nevertheless, who could stand against the allies of righteous forces that prays day and night with prayers and supplications before our BIG GOD, the creator of the universe and mankind!

To God be the glory!

Miracle explosion–you gotta receive your miracle of healing, too!

 

This live video was aired 2 years ago, but miracles is not a respecter of time…today while I was watching this, I have agreed with the prayer declarations, and instantly I received my miracle. How awesome is God! When we are in a verge of frustrations, wanting to really be healed and received from God, we would really expect that something will happen, then boom!!! Miracles take place… I’m so glad…this I testify with the Holy Spirit as my witness. I saw in the realm of the spirit that all aspects like health, relationships, finances, career, ministry, and others in my life are healed. Thank you Lord! To God be the glory!

You gotta declare and hear these from your own mouth and believe what you declared.
“I am healed. I am whole. I am rich.”

My Visit to Heaven

 

I’m sharing this video testimony of Apostle Pierre Ngnangock about his heaven experience and warnings for churches in this last days. I’m so blessed by this. Hope you’ll check this out.

To God be the glory!

Joshua 1:8

In the workplace, my workmate once asked me as she saw me studying the bible with my notes, “Have you completed reading the whole bible?” I was reluctant to answer, yet instead said, “Yes, it’s important to read it every day.”

Then I pondered, there are days when I read the bible not because I’m hungry or thirsty of God’s Word but because I’m afraid of God. Like, if I would not read His Word, I might displease Him. I realized by thinking like this, I’m becoming religious.

Today, while I was reviewing my notes, I happened to read Joshua 1:8,

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe t do according to all that is written in it. For then, you will make your way prosperous, and then will have a good success.”

While I’m meditating on this verse, a memory from the past resurface of how I first time read the Word of God due to hunger and thirst of God…that as a result I was able to complete the whole bible for more or less two weeks. And, I experienced Jesus, met Him, gave my life to Him and baptized by the Holy Spirit by just reading the Word of God.

I was humbled when in those times of dark moments, of depression, frustration, brokenness and I was seeking God, He rescued me. He used someone, from long distance, who phoned to encourage me to start reading the bible cover to cover—which had changed my life drastically.

If I could look back on those dark chapters of my life—me as with no direction, no purpose in life, without joy though got the luxuries of life. . .like “What is it for man if he gains the whole world yet losses his soul?”, it brings assurance to me that my GOD watches us. Unlike earthly fathers who may abandon their children, God, our Heavenly Father, would never forsake us.

Those dark moments were also the times when I was so eager to find Christ, to know Him and to have a relationship with Him. It was so good to reminisce when Jesus was present at every storm of your life, that He became the light when the world gets dark, and darker…yet He is more real. His presence was more real than the things around you. That you can’t think of anything but Him. That your focus was on Jesus because you were madly in love with Him.

However, how about now? Everything is smooth. How’s my love to Him? I’m checking my heartbeat. I believe He is giving me rest. I run here and there, trying to do, do and do, and forgot that He wants me to be, be and be.

 

PRAYER: Lord Jesus, create in me a pure heart. Renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Forgive me in times I neglect Your voice.

Forgive me in times I try to control my situations.

Forgive me in times I do my own thing without asking your help or guidance.

Forgive me in times I worry, forgetting that worry is a sin—thus doubting that you are ABLE, GREAT, MIGHTY TO SAVE.

Forgive me in times I’m impatient, thus manipulating Your timing.

I realize that waiting benefits us so much! That is cleans, purifies, purges, renews, strengthens and transforms us to be like You. Thank you Lord Jesus for your great LOVE.

 

When You Feel Nobody Is Beside You

Just sharing this beautiful thoughts from Rick Warren…
1. It’s easy to fill a schedule than to fulfill it.

2. To grow, I must say “No”.

3. If you try to run somebody else’s race, you’ll gonna fail, you’re going to lose, you’re not going to make it to the finish line, you’ll gonna get tired and give up. Because God doesn’t give you the strength to run other people’s race, you are to run the race God meant for you to run.

4. You have to stop caring about the approval of others nor living for their approval. You got to be who God made you to be.

5. We must focus on Jesus, not on our circumstances. You must not look at your problem, you got to look at the problem-solver

6. Don’t look at yourself as a victim, you got to look at the Victor (Jesus).

7.If you look at Christ, you’ll be at rest.

Flying with my father…

7

Today, I woke up in the morning from a dream.
Here is my dream: I and my dad were together somewhere. Suddenly, there was a former acquaintance of him who approached us, asking my dad’s whatabouts. When he knew that my dad is in the right course, (in the right path) he tried to tempt my dad to do bad things.

I overheard it so I was mad and interrupted at their conversation. I corrected my dad and told him, “You are what you say, don’t declare negative things about yourself. I cancel what you say, you have just agreed with him and the devil.” So I let him repeat after me, I declare good things..and urge him to agree with me. Then I disputed with his former acquaintance.

Soon, we won. That man started to look like evil since he didn’t win over my dad. Instantly, five men were approaching towards us which we knew was his team and right then we had the knowledge (from God) that they’re going to harm us.

So, I prayed to God outrageously to be our aid as I saw some of them picking stones. ‘Lord help us!’
And right then, in an instant, there was a blowing wind from the north approaching us, and our foot levitate from the ground and the next thing I knew was we’re literally flying…up on high, above the ground…our speed was overwhelming like jet-planes!

REACT: Our God is our banner! He is our Jehovah Sabaoth, the Lord of Hosts! He aids us against our enemies! Glory to God!

This dream tells us that we have role / responsibilities to our relatives/ loved ones especially to our immediate family. If we see that some of our family member are falling away, should we be not available to bring them back to God, or encourage them to continue fighting the good fight of faith., thus saving them from the pit!

This week, I have had  a lot of struggles and frustrations. Every night before I go to bed, I read God’s Word. I was directed to this passage and was revived by His words!
