The Departure

Bye Bye! The Past is BEHIND! If you remind me, I dont Mind!


Do you recognise yourself as part of the children of God?
Departure from circumstances is never easy, especially when you get comfortable with thw situations you are in. No matter how much wrong you knew it was, still it would bother hou a bit to leave that circumstances to face a new challenge and to face the unknowable future. Although you might know that freedom awaits you on the other side, all the experiences you have performed this years had become an instilled learning for you. It becomes important. But as God leads you and want to pluck you out because He have seen your hardships amd He have heard the prayers.. The time has come He sends a messenger, He raises up someone to lead and to teach.. Thats when the comfort zone you got used to becomes a new challenge. Thats when Moshe came. To lead and set free his people from Egypt. Thats when Yeshua had become the new Adam to redeem us from Slavery.

As the Israelites were led by Moshe Rabbenu, they were leaving Egypt..with haste they carried a dough unleavened and with all their families and possessions as they run away from enemy.
They were set to freedom yet the enemy is behind chasing them. As they survived the departure from slavery, they face circumstances in the wilderness.. Not for a thought you would focus only on the miracles of the cloud and in the day and fire in the night. But to think how God provided in 40years and how God brought them to Kenan. Those things happens in the mountains and how God disciplined the children He loves.
So He sees you.

As Yeshua entered the world, so was Moshe Rabbenu. There was no special treatment in his arrival. Yet the purpose of his entrance to the world is to redeem us from slavery of sin. Not just that we had performed them but because God wants to uproot us from the sin instilled in us from the very beginning. Remember this day for the Lord says, this is the day you shall perform a festival for me. For with the strong hand I carried you, with a Mighty hand I rescued you.
With Wonders I showed you the blood of the river.
With visions I led you with my Spirit to win wars over the Kings that stood against your ways. . And with Signs I looked after  you with Clouds in the day and fire in the night
All of this God performed in the eyes of our forefathers… Remember
How the day of Yeshua was. A picture of Moshe was instilled in Yeshua, A redeemer, the pesach sacrifice and the messias that restored our lives to God.

Remember who you are now! That is your identity! People might remind you of you were! but that is the only thing they knew and see about you! The have not witness the process of your change. The have not seen the steps you took towards transformations. The decisions that took place and the strength you found to LIVE BEYOND THE NORM!
GOD IS WITH YOU if YOU ARE WITH HIM!

Passover Meaning

Passover Meaning

Today marks the evening. The beginning of Passover. The NIGHT The Lord ordered Israel to eat the Passover lamb. Same night the Lord passed throughout Egypt to see the blood marks on the doorsposts and took the Egyptians firstborn.

This marks that Yeshua our Messiah has been prepared while the temple prepares its passover Lamb. That same night Yeshua was given over to the hands of evil to redeem the world and reconcile towards God.

Same night when the Messiah took a meal with his Talmidim(disciples) to speak of what will happen afterwards. It was not the questions of why one would betray him, it was somehow a preparation that a sacrifice must be done despite of relationship with the person whom he had taught all those years.He knew the time drew near and what matters is that the disciple himself would also fulfill his purpose of what God had set him to so that Yeshua would come to the peak of his father’s greatness.

Day AFTER THE PASSOVER was the FREEDOM. it was the freedom from SLAVERY in EGYPT. The day when God freed the Israelites from the hands of ruthless masters. A day when the years of suffering ended.

Day after the PASSOVER was the day when all the comfort zone is to be left. When all that we thibk were okay and right has to be exposed wrong. As we thought that living under a difficult circumstances can also give comfort, this time after the Passover, we will be led to understand Gods leadership. Not to be controlled anymore by ruthlessl masters but to be brought into the promised Land.

The day after the Passover, Yeshua was hanged on a stake. Both his followers and students scattered in confusion and heartbreak. But as the evening approached.. It was the beginning of the FREEDOM OF MANKIND FROM SIN. Given Free from heaven.

Let us remember this day…
Yeshua is ALIVE!

Being a Victim

Being a Victim

We mostly get tired of people whom are victims of abuse. And in our terms, our wish is that they would be set free. We do our best to take them out if it. Yet often we see then returning.

Of course we get distracted and disappointed because we dont understand what is happening in their minds. We think sometimes that our efforts were neglected and that our relationship with them somehow starts to be out of hand. Until the day, we want to give up forgetting that once we had the days when we also were victims.

We must understand it is a difficult situation for that person and it is a personal attachment. The only thing u can do is to allow the person see the wrong thing in the event. Although you have given your advice it is still very difficult for the person to be influenced by your thoughts because the person itself face the fear and has very low self esteem. You must remember that the abuser had stolen their identity and trampled their lives. In that manner the abuser was using its power to make use of the victims positive mind from the beginning. I believe that the abuser itself is a broken soul and it feeds to break another to feel a little better. To damp the brokenness inside. we must never forget to understand those who are in weak situations and we shall not look down on them i was once a victim and it took me so long before i got out if it. I was looked down by people who think that i get returning back to the abuser but the thing is, i wasn’t strong enough because the people that tried to pull me out of it are the ones who speaks about mistakes. Points out how i shall be and how i should think. It created confusion in me because I didnt know what to think for myself and the hopelessness grew… One day there was a person who found my strength by suggesting ne solutions and that friend never imposed aby ideas but stayed with me and told me. “You are strong enough” “do you think this things happening to you arecorrect?” “i will always listen to you sentiments until you get free from it because I am hoping you soon be free”
These were always her words whenever she got tired of my repetitive conversation. Until the day i stood for victory.

The idea of hurting others indeed comes from the inner source of the soul in hebrew called ‘jetser hara’ – long for evil. It is in the inner part of the soul connecting from the sinful nature of man. Yet the idea of doing good is the longing for good – jetser ha tov in hebrew.
These has been implanted in our soul therefore many of us either become aware of being abused or not aware of abusive behaviour.

Each of us.. No one can deny that even though we are born again has sometimes the attitude of abuse. Which in term of Paul, we can always discipline ourselves to not obey the jetser hara.

Please have kindness at heart and an understanding attitude towards the person you are facibg difficulties. We might not know what we say might lift then up or might bring them down. ❤️😘 I speak according to my experience.
Yeshua always look upon the broken hearted and has a contrite spirit. A broken soul is the one who needs guidance and has a restless mind. A contrite spirit has the sleepless thoughts and worries, an anxiety of the heart caused by other people who are abusing them and using them for their own benefits.

Yeshua had cared for these people and showed meekness and kindness to them. He was not exempted even to the humiliating events that we also experience in life. That is why He said,

I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty
John 6:35

Take it as an example.
Until then if the person want to stay where they are.. Then thats their matter.. We cant do nothing.. But to respect the decision.

Debunking Matrix – Never a Biblical Movie

Debunking Matrix – Never a Biblical Movie

The MATRIX idea is not biblical..

I will tell you why:

Christianity makes use of many stories and ideas which have been part of human culture and secular traditions for many years. And for a long time, many Christian leaders do create sermons out of their own minds and created fables to make a standard of being intelligently knowledgeable without knowing or without reading the facts, history or source of the origin of the bible, or at least knowing the status of its source. Many times, because they are leaders of a certain flock, church, organisation or institutions, we mostly regard them as our eldest siblings or teachers or sometimes idolise them.  Many of the sermons we hear may actually be sedative to infuse in our minds and in our hearts. And these sermons, although we find out later on that they are wrong, we mostly are compromising because they have become our friends…But that should not be an excuse. We all are here to learn from each other, right?

My intention is not to destroy but to raise some insight and maybe a bit of push so you also can read your bible and even to make a research for yourself.

Many entertainment movies nowadays just ride along, and for your sake you can also be deceived because it looks cool, or either it is very cozy to spend time with friends having “common” belief because actually “there is nothing wrong in watching the film coz we sometimes think it is” biblical” thinking that it has a Biblical title. Mostly, why would “pastor makes a sermon out oof it” he sounded so wise.. So we think “it will be fine” Or maybe its time to read some history again. or maybe, let us start reading the scriptures carefully… 🤣 What do you think?

Now, talking about the Favorite of many! MATRIX The film contains numerous allusions to philosophical and religious ideas, including existentialism, Marxism, feminism, Buddhism, nihilism, and postmodernism.While some critics have praised the film for its handling of difficult subjects, others characterize the film’s themes as being largely overshadowed by its action scenes. (karate? Teakwondo? Judo?  Jackie Chan(he was actually more funnier) Hmm very large!)

“Hints..

Rene Descartes = french philosopher and mathematician. 17th century – philosophical questions * intellectual autonomy and that the experiences did not always match reality.

Written in his book : MEDITATIONS ON FIRST PHILOSOPHY “

Matrix movie: Neo discovers that what we all think is the real world is actually an illusion, a virtual reality created by artificial intelligence that has conquered the human race and turned it into an energy source for machines.

Yeshua never taught that the world we live and suffer in is fake; Yeshua never taught us to think all is illusion. Yeshua came to confirm that the heavenly realm or the unseen world can be impacted by the restoration of his offering to restore the spiritual relationship between God and mankind. he came to save people from sin and pain, not to claim that sin and pain aren’t real. If there’s a Buddhist-Christian connection here, it’s tenuous.

One thing..

The red and blue pill may also represent the red and blue lodges of Freemasonry, the Blue Lodge being of the first three degrees which are technically the only true Masonic degrees, and the Red Lodge being the extra degrees such as is found in Scottish Rite or York Rite Masonry.

Exodus: Gods and the Kings: transforming Moses into a terrorist-type character rather than God’s prophet, and was generally regarded to have departed from scripture altogether.

Noah:Noah’s sons weren’t without wives on the ark. In Aronofsky’s fanciful version, only one of Noah’s sons, Shem, has a wife (played by Emma Watson)—and she ends up pregnant with twin girls who, we assume, will eventually become wives for Noah’s other two sons. Huh? In the Genesis account, God tells Noah: “You shall enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife, and your sons’ wives with you” (Gen. 6:18).

The Shack: When the man arrives at the shack, Mack meets the three divine Persons of the Trinity in the forms of a black woman (the Father, “Papa”), a Jewish man (the Son, Jesus), and an Asian woman (the Holy Spirit, whose name “Sarayu” is a Sanskrit word that means “wind”).

What should we say about this representation of the God? First, Yeshua taught His disciples to refer to the Almighty as “Our Father” (Matthew 6:9). Yet, the Father is not human and does not have a human sex or gender.  God in a simple way have to show himself in a form where we can understand. For instance, Jacob wrestled with an angel,  or a donkey that speaks, a whale that took Jonah to his right place. These are the ways of God to show us a simple message that we can easily understand but He himself will not show his face. (referring to Moses up the mountain and Moses saw only the back of God) thus God is omnipotent and can express himself in the manners that we can perceive Him.

Remember we are finite-we have a calculation of living one earth – we are born at certain time and we die  (hopefully like Avraham).  God is INFINTE-immeasureable or endless, never-ending (same same forever)

The Bible clearly teaches that God’s image is reflected by male and female alike (Genesis 1:27) and that His children come “from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages” (Revelation 7:9, ESV).

conclusions

When a certain film covers up a bible verse or a quotation from Our Ancient teachers like Moses and Jesus, does not mean it is reliable or it does not also means it is pure and clean and edible for the soul to chew. We have to dig deep the truth coz we as believers and students of Yeshua are easily ensnared by the tales and fables of the human entertainment. Many can claim that some films are biblically based yet whenever a film does not confirm its full purpose, it is a lie. There are films that are indeed true to its message, and when you find them they consists of moral teachings without mixture of other religious activities, symbols and rituals.  Aside from films that are clear to their message like movies that mocks the believers, it is very certain among our brethrens that we are filled with ignorance most of the time. Because many of the films created, as long it is titled with biblical theme, for some it is very tempting and seductive to watch that even the whole congregation sermon can be a marketing stage and recommendations that they can be watched. Personally, I watch movies rarely, i usually look at documentaries or history related films, or sometimes watch some children movies but allows my children to recognise which is right and wrong information. Mostly, we notice the wrong things whenever we read and are well informed of our history or by searching the facts biblically. But, it may differ from different sources. I sually read articles from certified historians.

Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

  There is a scripture that writes : Psa 101:3  I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. 

Speaking of movies, I am very supportive on reality based movies. There are lots of them where you can see how a person was changed through time and how faith had inspired and motivated them to be a whole new creation.  It takes an observant to question a movie wether it is legitimate to use or even laid on by the eyes. So it is your decision of course to see what you like, but it is for you to know what is legible and if you see the truth of course you have the responsibility to also warn others.

I do not write these to become overly reactive but to give you an insight to also become aware of what you see and hear from others. You must always test the things you hear by finding them in the scriptures never forgetting where it all began or whom and which nation and tribe it all started.

Beware! Such thing can draw us into idolatry. Worse it can be a strange service.

Much Love

WHO is ABLE?!

WHO is ABLE?!

Who can wear your shoes and understand it?
Who can listen to your story and tell it?
Who can wear your shoes and dare to judge you?
Who can able to hear you cry and dare to wipe your tears
Who can understand you and patiently lead you in life?
Who can teach you a lesson without killing you inside?
Who can speak with you without intimidation
Who can allow you to grow without setting a hindrance?
Who can stand for your integrity without partiality
Who can give you strength in weakness
Who can love you without hidden mask
Who can show you wonderful things without a pay
Who would help you without blowing a trumpet

O yes, when we look at mankind, our own image and alike!
No one would dare to take a stand
And yet promises are spoken to become a helping hand
The sudden times expose that there’s no one
And at your failures you face the test
So many measures at your mistakes
And at your weakness you have no friends
One by one they see you as a pest
Maybe God had punished her in the end
All the empty words fly like withered leaves
Yet the wind carries the whispers through the chills
And the lips will never stop hurting
As the eyes will never stop judging
Still in the image of divinity there’s a propaganda
You will know WHO you shall turn yourself into.

And Who is like God? Who is like Hashem?
The One Who loves with pure intentions
The One who sees your purpose
The One whom you can depend on
The One who wont desert you
The One who understands
The One who forgives
The One who knows your limitations
The One who nurtures your growth
The One who restores you
The One who leads you into The right way
The One who teaches you in your misconceptions
The One who heals you in brokenness
The One who fills you in Hopelessness
The One who assures you have a friend
The One who opens the gates in your return
The One who gives peace under the storm
The One who feeds in hunger
The One who pours water in thirst
The One who shows wonders and signs
The One who helps with a mighty hand
The One who redeem a lost heart
The One who sends a saviour to never get lost
The One who will always be the FOREVER LIVING GOD

Happens for a Reason

Happens for a Reason

I am upset at myself, I’m angry at the world, and I’m not on speaking terms with G‑d for a while.

Then they line up, the friends who want to cheer me up, the spiritual leaders who know better: You know what my friend… No need to be upset… No need to be depressed… Everything happens for A reason!!!

The first thought that crosses my mind is, Where is your compassion? Where is your sympathy? Do you think I need to hear that I’m suffering for a reason? I’m Suffering! Is that suppose to happen for a reason?

The second thought that jumps up my brain is: Oh, yeah. Obviously everything happens for a reason. The reason I got into multiple sexual abuse from relatives and it made me become afraid to trust people. The reason I became a rape victim that made me having issues with relationships, that caused me to feel distressed and afraid of society. The reason it ruins my daily life. The reason I got into a violent marriage that brought me depressive episodes and anxieties. The reason I got divorce twice and caused me to feel miserable. And still I would hear.. Everything happens for a reason. How does friends and spiritual leaders console me by their words.

They say, things happen for a reason. And that things that happens we deserve. I refute this words because they are too extreme for me to believe.

I believe that God has plans and purpose for everyone and I understand His thoughts in the beginning of creation. That every creature both great and small, from the ones that walks to the smallest that creep has its very assigned purpose to complete each other fulfilling its task to become a lively event in daily occasion. And that every living creature has its fulfilling purpose upon the earth.

Whoever has faith in individual Divine Providence knows that “Man’s steps are established by G‑d,” that this particular soul must purify and improve something specific in a particular place. For centuries, or even since the world’s creation, that which needs purification or improvement waits for this soul to come and purify or improve it. The soul too, has been waiting – ever since it came into being – for its time to descend, so that it can discharge the tasks of purification and improvement assigned to it. Hayom Yom 3 Elul

Now we are talking business. Everything happens for thereason, not just A reason. And the reason is G‑d’s master plan for his universe

When I look back upon the things I went through in life, it is easy to see the negative things and think that I deserved the hurt and pain. And according to others opinion, it is happening for a reason. But when I looked at what I became after that, I realised that it was needed for me to go through so I may learn. And under the process I had the choice to either do not care or to just be afraid or either defend myself. I refute that it is not the purpose of my life, neither God had planned my life course to be in that manner. I believe that this things happened had came across without a warning because there is a desire in every individual, it can be for good or for evil.

Unfortunately, some of the unhappy things that happened to me was the result of my fear to fight and defend myself. Which I believe was not happening for a reason.

There is a case that makes me think just that sentence. When I faced a violent tragedy many years ago, I was devastated and confused about my lifes purpose. I heard someone said to me, “everything happened for a reason” and it strucked me. Because they did not knew I was a rape victim. And they did not knew I was abused as a child, and they did not knew that I was also abused as a wife. And telling me everything happened for a reason makes me think, that reason must be absurd and out of mind concept..

Everything does not happened for a reason. Things has purpose but it was not purpose for evil but for good.

We have the power to experience people, places and things in a G‑dly way, thus changing their composition from merely physical to a new spiritual dimension. The only reason weird things happen to us, is because we are challenged to elevate that situation from the annoying (to humans) to the pleasurable (to G‑d).

In other words “Everything happens for a reason” are not words of consolation, but a call to action..

Home

Home
When I am sad
The Lord lift my head high
And when the tears fall down
He catches them with His bare hands
When I feel alone
And my soul mourn
The Lord shows me Im home
And his love keeps me going
To where I should go…. along
His light leads the way
As the truth be known
Because I know… im hommmeee
I’m home in His arms
He cares for me thats true
Everyday my strength is new
He never leaves
He wont forsake you
And leads you home….
When the road seemed
Too narrow to walk
And the hills seems to
Fall over my head
His presence cover me
He holds me in His hands
His wings become my shelter
And when I look above the sky
The Lord tells me Im home…
Im home in the arms of a King
A gentle voice like waters in my ears
Im strong in the arms of a King
With a power of thunder and lighting
When I feel i am to falter
He raise me up with thousand angels
To show me I dont need to look away…
Im already home…

The Mysterious Pontius Pilate

Pontius Pilate

Pontius Pilate was the Roman official who gave the final order for the crucifixion. According to the gospels, he actually believed that Jesus was innocent, and wanted to save him, but was pressured into ordering his death by the Jewish religious leaders and a disorderly crowd of spectators.
Why did Pilate give in to the pressure even though he believed that Jesus was innocent?

To try to answer this question, we first need to examine his previous life and how it may have affected his attitudes and his character.

Some evidence suggests that Pilate had served as an officer in the Roman army before he was sent to Judea. If so, he probably came from the equestrian (knightly) class of Romans, one step down from the senatorial class. But he may have gained some additional status through marriage, because one source says that his wife, Claudia Procula, was a niece of Emperor Tiberius.
He was appointed to his position in Judea in 26 AD, and held it for about ten years. His official title, Praefect, is usually translated as “governor”. His two main duties were to keep order in the country and to make sure that all imperial tax revenues were collected and sent to Rome.

Here is a list of some possible other factors:
— As an upper-class Roman, Pilate wouldn’t have put much value on the life of a lower-class Jew like Jesus.
— The question of guilt or innocence was probably of little importance to Pilate. During his time as governor, he must have sent many innocent people to their deaths. Jesus would just be one more.
— Because of previous difficulties with riots and uprisings, Pilate would have been predisposed to take strong action against anyone who might be a potential threat to the stability of the country. A man like Jesus, who had a large number of followers, could have appeared to be such a threat.
— Pilate sometimes needed the collaboration of the Jewish leaders on other matters. To try to stay on good terms with them, he would have paid attention to their wishes in this case

Some scholars think that the gospel writers didn’t mention these other factors because they wanted to put all the blame for the crucifixion on the Jewish leaders. Of course the Jewish leaders did play an essential role. They were clearly the main instigators, and the pressure they applied clearly had a strong influence. Thus they obviously do deserve a lot of the blame.
Yet surely some blame also has to go to Pilate. After all, he did make the final decision. And he probably knew that he was condemning an innocent man to death.
But because of what the gospels say, many people have believed that Pilate really wanted to save Jesus, and would have done so if he could. In fact a fourth-century book called The Acts of Pilate even suggested that the governor was a secret Christian. And in the sixth century he was declared a saint by the Coptic and Ethiopian Churches.

There are conflicting stories about how he finally died. The early church historian Eusebius wrote that he committed suicide in 39 AD. But according to a legend, he lived until the reign of Nero and then died a horrible death in France, his body being eaten by worms.

Today’s Wonder – Baguio City – April Kickstart Day 1

Praise God for His righteousness and Holiness. HIS Kingdom is as pure and His love endures forever! Praise Jesus for the strength and boldness….

Today was a great day!
I met people and I’ve shared the Gospel to them. Many people in my city are very religious and thought that Jesus is religion. And that they could believe whatever they wanted.
I am amazed by God’s Spirit that guides me, for I have preached radically and spoke that if people then claim they believe in Jesus but still can do what they want, they are liars and deceives themselves. Some young people got scared of what I’ve spoken because I shared them the Holiness and Righteousness of God. But the adversary came to their mind and told me to bid them goodbye. So I left.

There were certain people whom are able to hear, there was a young lady whom have been touched by the Holy Spirit and have been into a Catholic church system. When I spoke to her, I asked, “why do you believe?” And she was quiet. she have never heard the truth of the Gospel and I’ve got the chance to share my witness. She received it and will think about the true meaning of her faith in Jesus.

There was a woman from a Jehovas witness and she was very open to the Gospel and was curious. But she was not able to resist the word I shared because she felt it is true but also bid me goodbye.

Later, I prayed for a woman who had a pain in her bladder, I prayed for her and she got healed.
Another man got healed from a constant pain also.

My little sister arrived and there was a man that God had blessed as we cross the street. The Spirit spoke through this old man. He spoke ” if you know you are right, you don’t have to be afraid! You just have to go and walk straight” and I could discern that the Spirit indeed was guiding  me for I was dismayed after all the rejection that my people in my city could not receive the true Gospel.
Then I asked the man if he has pain. He has a constant pain that also makes him imbalance and would make him fall whenever he would walk up the stairs. So I prayed for him and he explains the pain went and the feeling was lighter. So I told my sister to pray for the man. And he got healed.

My sister by the way couldn’t believe her eyes, although it was her first time to pray and experience the power of God in Jesus name, she doubted. When I was about to speak, the old man came and was in cheerful joy. He said, ” how could this be? I’m healed, and the pain is gone” then I got the chance to share the Gospel and my sister was in awe and speechless.. for me! This is daily life as a disciple..
We thank the Lord for this miracles and wonders..
