How I Came to Know God-Part 2

When I lost my job, I felt with dismay, however it was only temporary. Still, I don't have a job, but I believe in God's promises. According to His word "My Strength is perfect in your Weakness". I felt some kind of relief when I realized that God is using me for His purpose. I tried to know Him deeper and the first step was to read His word -The Bible. Not everybody understands the Bible(remember Satan does not understand the Scripture), but God gave me wisdom to understand it.Understanding the Bible was not easy. You have to read and reread. To enhance your knowledge about it , you should be filled with Holy Spirit. This can be done through powerful meditation on His Words. Singing hymn to the Lord helps you , too, empower your holy spirit. Reading the Bible comes with  responsibility. Remember the Lord said" Go, and make disciples of nations". Matthew 13:8 -Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop--a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown., which means once we heard of the good news(words of God and salvation) we have to spread it to other people so they, too would be saved. You can do this if you are also an epitome of the words of God. I think this is the reason why a lot of people go on the streets, televisions, on transportation to spread the words of the Lord, because once you know the words of God it comes with responsibility. That's what I'm doing now.

I remember ( when I don't know God yet), I prayed every now and then. It may be just habit that I formed for long time. I still recall, I was saved twice from a near accident along the road while on a passenger transport. The only words I uttered on those 2 accidents was " Jesus save us". I used to be a great sinner and still sin today. Sometimes, It's hard to follow God, because we have attitudes that has grown with us since our childhood which was hard to change. I believe one day, I'll be fully transformed. Knowing God not only means, praying , going to church every Sunday or some people would say " as long as we do not oppress, offend or treat others unfairly". Those things are not enough to become God's disciple. You will come to know Him by reading the Scriptures. Reading the Scriptures will also tells you the truth about beliefs and practices of people. You have to read from cover to cover to fully understand it.

My great thanks and gratitude to Lord God, for giving me a good home, a family, a son ( I didn't expect), talents, job, keeping me and my family in good health , a good appearance, sustaining me and my son even in times that I am jobless,  and of course real friends who I can trust in times of needs and who embraced my weaknesses.

Origin of Christmas-The Shocking Truth

Christmas is the most celebrated season of the year in the whole wide world. Do you know where did Christmas originated? Christmas originally came from the Roman who associated Christmas celebration with their celebration of Saturnalia-an ancient Roman festivity in honor of the deity Saturn. Did you know that Saturn is associated with Osiris or Devil in the tarot and is a symbol of Satan. Check this out:
A shocking truth will be unfold about Saturn and how it is related to Satan.

Saturnalia festivities is a long celebration and starts December 17 and ends December 25 which involves offering of human sacrifice, sex, drinks and all things forbidden by Almighty Father. However, we have embraced Christmas celebration  because of  the festivities and joy the season brings. For us Christians, it may not be the exact date of the birth of Jesus, but we all join together in celebrating His birth. However, can we worship and honor God by involving ourselves with customs and traditions, which God Himself forbade as idolatry?. In fact those symbols of Christmas such as trees, mistletoe, wreath are actually pagan heathens. As the Bible clearly states in Jeremiah 10:2-4, "Thus saith the Lord, learn not the way of the heathen; and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven. For the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain. For one cutteth a tree out of the forest. The work of the hands of the workman with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold. They fasten it with nails and with hammers that it move not. "Here is another one Mark 7:7-8
They worship me in vain;  their teachings are merely human ruleYou have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.”

According to some, Christmas means Christ and Mass -means pass over or death. Remember when all first born son of Egypt died and putting blood on the door would the angels passed over so that first son of Hebrews would not die. Others says, Mass means religious usage means Death or Sacrifice. Therefore, it means many death of Christ This is not how Christmas means to us , Christians.

It was really a shocking truth about Christmas. Since, it was originally from the Romans, then it must be for the Roman Catholic. Everybody enjoy celebrating it. I , myself enjoy Christmas celebration, because my mind was set to the birth of Jesus Christ who was a gift of  Almighty Father for our salvation. Although , sometimes I would rather think of celebrating His Resurrection should be the most celebrated season since God had won victory over death and which means salvation for us is available through His death .Not even the Jews celebrated December 25 as birth of Jesus. The celebration can not be changed as it was embraced both the pagan Romans and of course of the whole wide world. Remember , we people do what we want to do that  makes us enjoyable and happy , disregarding God's word. Celebrating Christmas therefore, is a lie to true Christian people who knows the true God.

Right Relationship with God 2-catholic and paganism

According to many people , Catholic started it's way back during the time of the apostles and it was founded by Peter. The declaration of the origin of catholic wasn't clear. As far as I know Catholic originated during the time of  the reign of Constantinople. At first he purge Christianity, but when he requested for a divine assistance, he saw a vision of Cross in his dream, so he made a cross and put it in front of his battleship. He was victorious in that fight and thereby declaring Christianity based on his original belief which is paganism. So, he both combined Christianity and Paganism. In the New Testament, there is no mention of the papacy, worship or adoration of Mary (or the immaculate conception of Mary, the perpetual virginity of Mary, the assumption of Mary, or Mary ), petitioning saints in heaven for their prayers, apostolic succession, the ordinances of the church functioning as sacraments, infant baptism, confession of sin to a priest, purgatory, indulgences, or the equal authority of church tradition and Scripture. So, if the origin of the Catholic Church is not in the teachings of Jesus and His apostles, as recorded in the New Testament, what is the true origin of the Catholic Church?

Haven't you noticed that all these saints suffered physical death. Even, Mother Mary's death wasn't clear. Some says she was assumed to heaven, while others says she suffered physical death.. I found Elijah who was a  prophet that was assumed to heaven- Kings 2:11 says: "As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind" and Enoch who was taken into Heaven by the Father(Gen 5:24), (Ecc 44:16) Catholic practiced prayer petitioned to saints who suffered physical death. Why do we go to these saints for petition on our prayers when we can go directly to Jesus or to our Father , in Jesus name. It was very clear in the Bible , when Jesus said " I am the Way, the Truth and the Life", No one comes to the Father , except through Me. In ACT 17:23-29 clearly states that God doesn't not stay in those images, because He is everywhere. From the very beginning God hates these false gods. Those images created by man even if they think of it as a representation of our God are also false gods.

Constantine was actually an original pagan believers. When he found that  the Roman Empire was  so vast, expansive, and diverse, not everyone would agree to forsake his or her religious beliefs to embrace Christianity. So, Constantine allowed, and even promoted, the “Christianization” of pagan beliefs. Completely pagan and unbiblical beliefs were given new “Christian” identities. Some clear examples of this are as follows:
3) We do believe and it was a fact that Romans has many gods and goddesses. We have this book of Greek Mythology which is almost the same as the Romans. Ex : Aphrodite for Greek and Venus for Romans,etc.Thus, it has those pantheon of saints.

4) The supremacy of the Roman bishop (the papacy) was created with the support of the Roman emperors. With the city of Rome being the center of government for the Roman Empire, and with the Roman emperors living in Rome, the city of Rome rose to prominence in all facets of life. Constantine and his successors gave their support to the bishop of Rome as the supreme ruler of the church. Of course, it is best for the unity of the Roman Empire that the government and state religion be centered in the same location. While most other bishops (and Christians) resisted the idea of the Roman bishop being supreme, the Roman bishop eventually rose to supremacy, due to the power and influence of the Roman emperors. When the Roman Empire collapsed, the popes took on the title that had previously belonged to the Roman emperors – Pontificus Maximus.

The origin of the Catholic Church is the tragic compromise of Christianity with the pagan religions that surrounded it. Instead of proclaiming the gospel and converting the pagans, the Catholic Church “Christianized” the pagan religions, and “paganized” Christianity.

So, let's open our hearts and mind to God, so He will lead us the right way to Him. Accept Jesus to be your Savior and do not be led astray by going to God through those  images. As I always said, these has been used by Satan to deceive people.

Right Relationship with God (tagalog)

Sa simula pa lamang mahigpit na ipinagbabawal ng Dios ang pagsamba sa mga imaheng ginawa ng tao kahit itoy maging representation Niya, sapagkat sya ay buhay. On my opinion God doesn’t want us to go through this images to pray for reasons stated below. Although kung magpray tayo ay hindi sa images, but to Him. May isang kwento sa new testament tungkol sa mga tao na gumawa ng image at nakalagay-Sa Dios na hindi nakikilala(I forgot if it’s Athens or if it’s Paul or Peter and nakapuna nun)Defintely dahil hindi nila nakikita ang Dios and they believe sa  makapangyarihang Dios kaya gumawa sila ng images. On my own opinion these images ay ginagamit ni Satanas para dayain ang tao. Ito marahil ang dahilan kaya ayaw ng Dios na si Ywhwh na gumamit tayo ng mga images or larawan .Hindi ba pag nanalangin si Jesus , tumitingala Sya sa langit. Si Pedro ay umakyat sa bubong para manalangin (Act 10:9).Although sinasabi ni Jesus na pag nanalangin ka huwag pumaris sa mga mapagpaimbabaw tulad ng mga Pharises. Kasi ang mga parisees ay  mga pakitang tao. Sabi  pumasok ka sa silid at manalangin ng taimtim. Sinasabi ko na ginagamit ni Satan ang mga images dahil  ito ang paraan nya paraan nya para lituhin ang tao para makuha nya. Kumalat na ang simbolo nya  sa mundo, kaya ang tao naging worldly lovers and not God lovers, dahil it is  where satan is. Ang taong nagbabasa ng Bible at ikaw ay catholic, sinisigurado kong magbabago ka rin ng paniniwala-because catholic do like the pagans do.Kung hindi mo maintindihan ang Bibliya at tinatamad kang basahin si satanas ay nasa sa iyo pa because Satan cannot understand the scriptures. Pag nawala na sya sa iyo bibigyan ka ng Dios ng pangunawa at karunungan. Malalaman mo na wala na si satanas sayo pag palagi kang nagbabasa o nakikinig ng  mga bagay na ukol sa Dios, palagi kang aawit ng mga awiting papuri at ang bawat sasabihin at magigigng desisyon  mo ay lagi mo syang nasa sa isip at sa oras oras palagi mong babantayan kung ikaw ay nagkakasala. Although tao pa rin tayo na nagkakasala. Ang ating katauhan ay bumubuo ng 2 bahagi: katawang lupa at katawang espiritu. Ang katawang lupa ay pinaghaharian ng mga bagay na pang mundo at ang espiritu ay para sa Dios. Ang mahalaga ay pagyamanin natin ang ating katawang espiritu(mababasa mo ito sa Book of Rome na ipinahayag ni Paul)

Nasakop na ni satanas ang mundo dahil sa mga symbols nya na kumalat sa lahat ng dako. Example yung dating Christmas na parol . dati ito ay 4 sided pero lumaon naging 5 sided at may circle which is a satanic symbol. Ang Christmas ginawang X,mas –which means death of the birth of the Savior which is Christ. See how we celebrate Christmas. We are excited for the worldly and material joy it brings to us( dahil ang Christmas ay originally a pagan tradition) Ngayon namayagpag na rin ang Freemasons which uses the symbol of David( 2 opposite triangle)kaya lang ang sa freemasons ay may locked sa bawat sides. Sa aking palagay ito ang dahilan kaya dumami ang mga bakla at tomboy( these transgender is deception of the devil)Read Matthew 1:26-27. Pero sa isipan ng tao-sinasabi dapat natin silang unawain dahil hindi nila kasalanan na maging ganun at tao rin sila, which is a wrong reasons kung mauunawaan mo ang babala sa Bibliya. Nung ng concert dito si Lady Gaga, maraming nagprotest na Christians pero ang sabi ng mga supporters., Lady gaga is only an art yung kanta at yung porma nya.Sabi nga ng kasama ko mga bobo daw ang nagpoprotesta kay Lady Gaga –pinoportray lang daw nito ay art.  Hindi alam ng tao ginagamit ito ni Satanas , pati na ang maraming music ngayon at mga palabas sa TV or sa Sine.

You know after reading the Bible, both new and old, parang ang pinakabuod ay gusto ng Dios na Siya ang ating unahin sa lahat ng bagay dahil tayo ay pagaari nya . Kung baga Siya ang pinakahari at dapat lamang na lagi Siyang bigyan ng pansin, purihin at unahin katulad ng mga may kaharian sa mundo. Iginagalang , sinusunod at pinupuri ang kanilang hari. Pinababa Nya (Ywheh) si  Jesus para patunayan sa tao na mayroong pangalawang buhay at dapat na magtiwala sa Dios na lumikha dahil may kaparusahan ang kasalanan. He gave all powers to Jesus to rule over the world and it’s people kaya dapat tayo ay manalig sa ating Panginoong Jesus. Sa pangalan lamang Nya (Jesus-Phillipians 2:10) ay makapangyarihan na kaya nga sinasabing A Name above every names(in the book of Peter). Kaya dapat pag nanalangin palaging sa pangalan ni Jesus. When we are praying we can talk directly to the Father almighty(Ywheh) , but in Jesus name or to Jesus only.
Ang mga sinasabing idolatry ay hindi lamang sa mga images kungdi pati na rin sa mga bagay na inuuna natin kaysa sa ating Dios tulad ng mga bagay na ukol sa relasyun, trabaho, pera, kaibigan atpb. Alam mo pag ang Dios ay sumaatin parang hindi ka dapat magisip ng problema at Siya na ang bahala. Kaso sa simula pa lamang hindi ganun ang ginagawa ng tao. Siguro kung sinunod lang natin ang Dios para na rin tayong nasa langit : walang gutom, walang paghihikahos, walang problema at ang lahat ay Masaya. Halimbawa sa isang pamilya or mag­­-asawa:kapag pareho kayong sumasainyo ang Dios wala na kayong magiging probleman or kung magkaproblema man (kasi  nga nasa katawang  lupa ang isang bahagi natin  na pinaghaharian ng worldly matters),  Dios ang bahala ayon sa ating pagtitiwala. Kaya palagi ding may lungkot at kabiguan because of that flesh in our body, but if you strengthen your Holy Spirit magiging complacent or kampante  ka because we depend on God….at gusto Nya na sa lahat ng bagay ay sa Kanya mo iniaasa. Di ba sabi ni Jesus , mapalad ang umaasa at nagtitiwala sa Dios. Kung ang lahat ng tao ay ganun ang pananaw , sabi ko nga para na rin tayong na sa langit. Pag nagkaganun pati an gating anak at asawa ay parang mga kapatid natin. Kaso hindi lahat ng tao sa mundo ay may ganung paniniwala at kapus sa kaalaman tungkol sa Dios.
Marami akong gustong ibahagi . Kung gusto niyong madagdagan ang kaalaman at tamang relasyun sa ating Panginoon manood sa mga palabas sa TV na magpapalawak ng kaalaman tulad ng PTV 4 everyday till Fri. 11pm and Channel 11 /700 club or every Sunday sa Light TV 33 every 9pm. Magagaling ang mga nagtuturo sa TV33  pero ang power ng Holy spirit ay madarama mo sa PTV 4 every 11pm para lumakas ang Holy Spirit sa ting katauhan.
Makakdagdag din ang pag basa  nito sa mga website at magsaliksik pa ng mga bagay na nauukol sa Dios.
Look at this websites so you’ll  be wary of those signs and symbols of satan :

 Watch this video of Angelica Zambrano-you might say na gawa gawa lang ito, marami pang mga ganito na pwede mong malaman. She is an evangelist….kaya hindi ito alam ng marami. I can be an evangelist kasi  tungkol sa Bible ang pinagaaralan nila. I can be a Christian because I believe in Christ and a follower of Christ.

Living with God -part V

 Jesus said in Luke 12:54 , that we should be aware of the time.  You can sense that anytime He is on His way to come to redeem His people and to judge the wickedness into the fires of hell. Although, Jesus said, nobody knows, not even the Father who is in Heaven. Being closer to God, you can also sense the heaviness and gravity  of the world sins. To my friends, brothers and sisters. This is for you. I want to spread the news of salvation. while it still not too late. Please turn away from idolatry: venerating images, which was created by man, doing things your own way (this is also considered idolatry). Our focus in life should be with God only. Everything   we do should always be for His Glory. Before making a decision , think first if this is pleasing to God. In that way , we are placing God first and giving Him the glory. God, always wants to be glorify which is just right and proper. Let not venerate images, as this is used by Satan to deceive God's people. God is alive and those images experienced death while Jesus conquered death and is alive. If we do venerate those dead people through images and sculpture, then we should also do that to all the prophets who was chosen by God . There was a family of 7 children and a mother , because of their trust and commitment to God did not eat the forbidden meat which was served by the Assyrian, caused them horrible death. They, too should be venerated? It was very clear in the Bible when Jesus said in John 14:6"no one comes to the Father except through Me.The Bible is the best and only way that your life would change to be closer to God.
