How Should We Relate with One Another as Believers?

by: Pastor Isaias T. Songcuan Jr.

In Ephesians 4: 32 states, “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you (ESV).” Meaning, be quick to forgive. CHRIST’s forgiveness should always be the basis of our forgiveness to others. The way and manner we relate with one another as members of the body of CHRIST should  reflect the character and nature of our SAVIOUR and MASTER, JESUS CHRIST. This is expected from all believers for we are now partakers of His Divine Nature. Having escaped the corruption that is in the world through “Desire and Appetite.”

Our relationships must be based on Love as JESUS “Commanded” us to Love one another. This is the new Commandment He Has Given unto us (John 13:34-35). All other actions in our relationship with others tied up in love which is the bond of “Perfectness.” When we have genuine love for each other it can prove to the world that we are CHRIST disciples. We must bear one another’s burden to fulfill the law of CHRIST. Let us do good to all men, especially to those in the household of faith.

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another (John 13:34-35, ESV).”

Another Major way of relating with one another is to uphold ourselves in prayers and encourage one another in the LORD, and urge one another to love and to good works. We must see to it that we assist the “Spiritually” weak, by “Strengthening” them in the LORD.  Each of you should look not only to your own interest, but also to the interest of others (Philippians 2:4). Meaning, don’t look to only one’s own thing, but also in the affairs of others. In Matthew 20:25-27, JESUS stressed about Worldly greatness which is opposite of “Spiritual Greatness.” The believer is not to pursue or crave worldly greatness. Jesus emphasized more about this in verse 27, stating, “and whoever would be first among you must be your slave (ESV).” It means, one  is giving himself entirely to another’s desire. We see from the Scriptures that leaders should be Servants, not Masters. They should be conscious of this fact in their relationships with members of their Various groups and units. They must also realize that their leadership role is merely a service they are providing unto the LORD. It is not supposed to be an “Entrance” for abusing (take advantage) to the Flock they are to oversee.

The leaders must never show partiality in their interaction with those they are leading. They must treat all with fairness and non-partisanship, not preferring one to the other. JESUS treated all his disciples and the people around him equally during His earthly ministry. HE associated freely with the High, Low, the great, the Small, the Rich, and the poor alike. We must realize that before CHRIST, we are the same for we are all “Redeemed” by HIS Precious Blood.

As members of the body of CHRIST, there is a need for us to relate warmly with one another. The basis of our relationship must be LOVE. There must be Unity in the body of Christ as we fellowship with GOD and with one another. We are properly joined together for we are one in CHRIST. Therefore, let us consider one another to instigate unto love and to good deeds. It is only through this means that we attract  unbelievers to come and accept JESUS as LORD and Personal Savior. In Christ, genuine love exist, there is mutual respect for each other, we are bound in Peace, Harmony, and Progress in the Group. The HOLY SPIRIT will surely move among the believers. Surely, there will be manifestation of gifts of the SPIRIT in a church as well. Moreover, GOD will “Command”  HIS Blessings over His Faithful Children. To  GOD  Be The Glory!

Is It Possible to Have a Holy Life?

by: Pastor Isaias T. Songcuan Jr.

Is it possible to live a Holy life in today’ s world? Every period of  time and civilization in world History has always its temptation. In fact, temptation already begun in the time of Adam and Eve. However, each  period there’s always a record of  people who chose to be different by living for God. 

One of these people who chose Godly living was Noah. During those time people practice wickedness and they did what is evil continually in the eyes of  the Lord (Genesis 6 :11-12 ). In contrast with their actions, Noah chose to be different. He found grace and favor in the eyes of God. In  Lot days, the nephew of  Abraham (Genesis 11:27). The immorality had  reached its  peak with the general acceptance of  homosexuality as a way of  life (Sodom and Gomorrah, Genesis 19).  However, Lot chose to be different. His soul was troubled daily with the deeds of the people. 

The issue of the society being difficult to analyzed or understand today. It seems this is an excuse for continuing to sin, because these sins are being justified by the sinners They have always some alibis, grounds, and defense of continue living in sin. It is clear that in the History of  mankind,  there were attempts by man even today to call sin different names. In contents and practices,  sin has not change. Sin is sin. Modern man in his complex society,  may describe immorality as fun. Cheating as making some runs,    Stealing as doing  business, acts of fornication, adultery, covetousness,  and greed.

Is it  still possible to live for God in today’s  world? Every believer should bear and  keeps inside the mind that God’s standard, and goal in life are different from the society. Our decisions, actions, and reactions in any situations should be guided by the word of God. Not by the ideas of  people no matter  how  well- placed such person is or political circles. The  Lord remains our perfect example. He is the one we must decide to follow and listen to. God’s grace will always be available to us as we are determined to obey Him in all circumstances of life. 

The  list of activities that can contaminate and destroy a believer’s life is plenty and superabundant. However, the believer of Jesus Christ can avoid or stay away from such things by-making up his mind to stay away from all  appearance of evil. Take time to meditate these Bible verses: 1 Thessalonians 5:22, and 1 Corinthians 15:33, “Do not be deceived: Bad company ruins good morals (ESV).” Keeping company with evil inclined person breeds evil behavior.  

These are 6 factors that will help us maintain holiness as the Lord’s  representative and ambassadors in this world  includes ;

 1). Regular prayer life.  

The believer must have a regular and  personal prayer life .  He must develop a habit of  praying . The  Lord  teaches that men ought to pray  and not to faint.

“Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17, ESV).”

2). Studying  the word of  God. 

Many  believers are lazy when it comes to reading and studying scriptures.  Read your Bible, and pray everyday if you  want to grow.

“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way (Joshua 1:8, ESV).”

3). Submit yourself to God.

We  must bear and  keep in mind our God is supreme and ultimate power,  and so He must be allowed to work out His plans and purposes in our lives as our  sovereign  God.

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7, ESV).”

4). Surrender everything to God.

The devil often brings temptations and trials to the believer. We should be grateful to God that we entered into His warfare against the enemy from the standpoint of  victory. Let us remember that our master is Jesus Christ who conquered satan long ago.

“He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him (Colossians 2: 15, ESV).”

5). Maintain a Heavenly Focus.  

It is important for us believers to always remember that our ultimate in life is to make it to heaven. 

“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory (Colossians 3:2-4, ESV).”

6).  Let the Lord  Jesus remain the  Perfect example . 

In all issues in faith and life, the Lord Jesus remains our perfect example.  We should not make human beings our standard and reference point. 

“looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God

(Hebrews 12:2, ESV).”

Another  characteristic  of a holy life is Contentment. The believer is content each day while He or she trust God for a better tomorrow. The benefits of living a holy life are numerous. Our Lord Jesus Christ gives us peace with God, and living in holiness guarantees peace of mind with our fellowmen. Most specially Holy living attracts God’s blessings (Deuteronomy 28:1-14). 

Finally, We are called to Holy living. A Holy lifestyle which includes loving God and loving one another, personal discipline, controlling our bodies, speaking truthfully, and humility. Every believer must accept holy living as a personal lifestyle for therein lies the secret of experiencing and seeing the Lord. To God  Be  The  Glory!

How Not To Have A Miserable Life?

by: Pastor Isaias T. Songcuan Jr.

Our message for today is Found in the Book of  John Chapter 4:1-25. This is about a Samaritan woman who met Jesus Christ on Jacob’s Well. During those time the Jews and the Samaritans were not friends. She had no idea who Jesus was but that moment when she reached the well to draw water   would prove the Greatest moment of her Life.

This woman is going to fetch water around noon. The hottest time of the day. Those days the Women gathered at the town’s well to collect water in the morning and on sunset hours. For it’s not hot during those time of the day. At the time the woman was about to fetch from the well. Jesus asked for a water to drink. To her surprised Jesus offered her “the Living Water” (John 4:10). The Samaritan woman  wonder on how Jesus can provide this Living water? Since He has no means to draw water from the well. In verse 11, she asked Jesus on where to get this Living Water? She finds the phrase “Living Water” to be fascinating,  and she’s becoming interested on where to get it. Usually, this behavior are common most especially to those who don’t know Jesus yet. Her attention had always been on Jacob, as was the significance of all Samaritans. Jesus will have to draw her away from that impressiveness without defaming Jacob. In Verses 13-14, “Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life (NKJV).” The bottom line, the things of this World can never satisfy the human heart, and life.  Discounting  as to how much is acquired or obtained of this world.

“Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

(John 4:13-14NKJV)

The woman misunderstood Jesus. She was thinking that if  she could get this water, she would not have to spend anymore time struggling to get water daily from the well. At this point, she’s thinking about some kind of  magical water that would meet her Physical needs. In verse 15, it  demonstrates  that she now has some understanding. She knows now that  the water of which Jesus speaking cannot be drawn or cannot be taken from Jacob’s well. In verse 16, Jesus could see the pain in her heart. He  could see the Dried places of her soul. She unsuccessfully tried to be Perfect. Jesus could see her trying to fill her “heart bucket” or “heart’s desire” with men, love, and approval.  Jesus search and seek into the details of her life. She bolted and jumped with some interested talk of worship.

In verse 18, Jesus mentioned that she had five husbands, and the man she  was now living with was not her husband. In short, not one of these five  men is her husband. We may conclude that she ‘s avoiding the townspeople for she gathers water at the most miserable time of  the day. She’s not going to get her water early in the morning and late afternoon because everybody will be on that well, and gossip about her.  Jesus pointed out on the area of sin and shame in this woman’s life. The water that Jesus speaks is not to quench and satisfy a physical  thirst, but a spiritual thirstiness. This Thirst that was manifested in this woman’s  life was through a series and chain of  broken and sinful relationships. 

This sinful  Woman was unwanted and ignored. The Samaritan woman was marked as an immoral who was unmarried and living openly with a series of men. The Story of the woman of the well teaches us that God loves us in spite of our empty lives. God value us. As a result of Jesus Conversation with her, she immediately dropped her water jug to gather the town people (Verse 28) telling them about Jesus. The woman became the evangelist of Jesus Words to her townsman. For the Samaritan Woman agreed to Jesus Words. Sometimes  we challenge the Lord’s Holy Word. Sometimes we even disagree and disregard it. When we reject His word,  we reject the truth. Sometimes we let a spiritual truth sit-out in front of us and don’t take it into our hearts. This woman took  Jesus Words and drank the living water by accepting Jesus Christ in her life. The scripture sits at our  fingertips, and we are challenged daily to take it up and drink it in.

I hope and  I pray that the Lord  would meet you at your well today. To  God  Be the  Glory!!!

On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

John 7:37-38

God is Greater than our Enemy

by Pastor Isaias T. Songcuan Jr.

There are some ways satan seeks your Destructions. In 1 Peter 5:8, “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour (NIV).” Meaning, we have to be mentally self-controlled, awake and watchful because we are faced with a powerful adversary. We must be constantly alert to the fact that satan is working overtime to see our downfall or weakening.  He will never stop until you are completely depleted, or completely drained out.

He will tempt us with many things. In 1 Corinthians 7:5, “Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control (NIV).” He will try to divert your attention with worldly things.  In 1 John 2:15-16, “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world (NIV).”  The cravings of nature of man are the lust of the eye, and boasting of accomplishments does not comes from the Father, but from the world. There is Nothing in the “system of this world” that is of God, nothing! The “Lust of the eyes” are desires of what it sees, and the “pride of life” is trusting on its own power, resources that shamefully despises and violates divine laws and human rights. These things have the system of the world as their source, and not acknowledging our Heavenly Father.       

 We are a people who are easily distracted especially by new, shinny and exciting things. Therefore, satan will use the beautiful things even good things to draw our attention and devotion away from Jesus.

Satan can never take away our salvation. God is greater and will lose none who belong to Him. However, satan can do a lot of damage and cripple or disable us in our quest for togetherness with God, and personal holiness. Therefore, we must be alert and vigilant because satan will attack when we are not ready.   In 2 Corinthians 2:11, “For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God (NIV).” If we obey the Holy Word of God, satan will have no advantage. God has not left or abandoned us defenseless.  He has given us an armor that we must know and wear at all times.  In Ephesians 6:1, “For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God (NIV).”

Someday, we will be able to trade in our armor for a royal robe, and a crown. The battles will be a part of the past will never ever be remembered our future will hold nothing but Peace and  Joy. Until then, we must encourage each other not to give up in the fight or to run in fear which will not last for a long period of time. We have the most powerful God in our side. we have nothing to fear for God said in 1 John 4:4, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world (NIV).”

As our conclusion, in Isaiah 41:10, “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand (NIV).”

To God be the Glory!

The Three Components of Mankind

by: Pastor Isaias T. Songcuan Jr.

Each man and woman born into this world is a human being and we are made of three Three specific components:

1). The body

This is our physical  component of being. It is flesh made from a collection of common mineral elements, and is mostly water and is in harmony with the nature and spirit of this world. It grows, matures then begins to deteriorate. Eventually dies then it decomposed back to its component and remains a part of dust of the world. The body is a part of you, but its Not All of what defines Who you are .

2). The soul

This is who we are. It is a part of our Spiritual Component.  This is our Individuality. When our flesh dies our soul goes on living forever. Our soul will leave the body. 

3) . The Spirit

This is a little more complex to explain. Every man, woman even a baby is born with a sinful nature. Adam’s transgression and by the virtue of his disobedience. We inherited his sin nature. In order to be saved our Spirit must be “Reborn.” The unsaved man or woman who have only the “First Birth (Borne from the biological mother) are in eternal danger.  Since the body and soul of the unsaved man or woman are attached or connected to the dead spirit of this present world .

 When this world’s physical elements and Spiritual components (including death ) are cast into the Lake of fire (Revelation 20:13 -15) those eternal souls, living or already dead will perish with them. We can’t change ourselves from this nature, But God can change us. If  we accept His gift of Salvation by His grace.  The key word is “Believe,” that Jesus is the Son of God, receive His forgiveness for being a sinner, and accept His “free” gift of eternal life.  God’s plan of Salvation also requires faith in Him.

So what exactly is the difference between the relationship  of unsaved soul saved soul ? What does being Born-again actually mean?   The answer is when we accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior. This Operation is a Spiritual Circumcision. Your Flesh is Cut away from your soul, and you are given God’s Spirit by the Transforming power of the Holy Spirit. After you have accepted  the free gift of Salvation through faith  in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and as you  grow and mature. You will begin to notice some changes in  how you think. You will find that your heart or soul grows  more and more in agreement with God and His Law. However, your Flesh will still want to go the way of the world. No Christian is perfect in the flesh. As you go through this life you will sometimes give-in to those feelings and will sin. The flesh  of Christian people still commit to sin after they are saved. In 1 John 1:8 says, “If we claim to be without sin ,we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us (NIV).” Meaning, it indicates to the sin nature, and it mentioned to self-deception. After you are saved , and as your heart understanding about God’s Love grows in your Christian walk, you will begin understanding the effects of sin and lawlessness on yourself, and others. As you begin to love others as you have love yourself , you will find that you are changing. That change comes from the heart by the indwelling Holy Spirit and the grace of God by faith in Jesus. 

Physical circumcision is Permanent and cannot be reversed. Once that flesh is cut away ,it is gone forever. The same analogy applies to circumcision of the heart. Once that body of flesh is cut away your soul can not be reattached to it.  Salvation is the free Gift of God and eternal. It is not earn by good works. In Galatians 2:16, know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no one will be justified (NIV).” Once you have given your soul to God it is forever. If you have accepted Jesus Christ then you are Loved of God. You don’t have to worry about holding onto God because He will hold unto you.   In Romans 8:38-39 states, “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (NIV).”  It means, that this love of God extended to us is made possible only by Christ Jesus, and what He has done for us in the Cross. Once again this is God’s love for us which never hesitate because we are in Christ Jesus.

In John 3:18, “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son (NIV).” In short, in order to redeem humanity that Salvation is never by works, but greatly by grace through faith in Jesus Christ with the Cross ever the object of that Faith.

To God Be the Glory!!!.

Will Richness Bring True Happiness?

by: Pastor Isaias T. Songcuan Jr.

 In Ecclesiastes 5:8-20, King Solomon argued that a covetous person never obtain enjoyment from his wealth. The more his wealth increases, and so his anxiety will also increase. In verse 12, The rich are constantly concerned or always worried about their plenty. So, they usually never sleep at night, and also during the day. For they have to be constantly on guard in protecting their riches from the ever-growing bad people who would try to take away from them. Their worst imagination is when they might also lose their one and only life.

Great power comes great responsibilities. In this case, the more you have, the more you worry about what you have, and the more you want to protect what is yours. It can easily deplete and dissipate you  This passage represents someone without Christ.

Looking at the verses of Ecclesiastes 5:13-14, Solomon states how senseless and empty it is to gain or garner riches. King Solomon had seen how the acquisition of money had brought misery. Striving after money is evil Money and possession became his idols to serve. Eventually, these desires of money and riches will only destroy. Solomon emphasized this by  referring to a person who had carefully treasured up and hoarded his wealth and then lost it all, through some tragedy or disaster. 

 Jesus resounded this standpoint in Luke 12:16-21. Riches, if  rightly acquired should be thought of as Blessings from the Lord, and these blessings have been given to him, and it should be used properly and correctly. However, the rich young fool piled them up unto himself.  Woefully,  most people follow this behavior. He was meant to use these blessings for the glory of God. The truth was, his soul was empty. It’s zero. This man had provided for the flesh but he hadn’t provided for the soul ,     How many rich Christians sadly fall into the same category? 

In Luke 12:20 states,  “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself? (NIV)’ The Lord is saying the same to all who follow in the train of covetousness.

In verse 15, Solomon Asserted that even if wealth were not lost. He could not take his richness with him even a very tiny piece of it when death approached him. Psalms 49:17 states, “For when he dies he shall carry nothing away; His glory shall not descend after him (NKJV).” This means that riches, fame, power, and glory, count as nothing, because from dust he came, and to dust he  will  return (Genesis 3:19b ). 

Everyone  of  us enters the world with nothing,  and leave the world with nothing. This is the reason that Jesus said to lay up treasures in Heaven (Matthew 6:19-20). God means for man to enjoy life but only if men will seek after the Lord, obey His words, and seek His will. The enjoyment will surely comes because of what God put in his heart.

 In verse 19, is a passage that God does in fact give some people riches so they can help others. God gave us the ability to breathe, work and enjoy life. It is prideful who take credit for which God has given. In verse 20,   the only things of this life that will be worth  remembering are those things that are done to God.  

As we come to a conclusion in this passage. King Solomon (The preacher ) recommends the adoption of a perspective that will allow a person to enjoy the simple things in life. The key words of this message are; God and Gift. All of us must view or look all of the possessions as a Gift from God.   Although they are NOT the source of Joy. We should focus more on the Giver which is the Lord than the gift.

686422: Parables Workbook Parables Workbook
By John MacArthur / Thomas Nelson

Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables He told were ingeniously simple word pictures. Some of them were no more than fleeting remarks about commonplace incidents, objects, or persons. In fact, the most compact of all Jesus’ short stories does not even fill a complete verse of Scripture. Yet the all were filled with profound spiritual lessons that He wanted His listeners to hear and understand. Jesus told these parables so they would clearly comprehend His message about the kingdom of God and the reason He had come to earth.

2 Ways to Comfort our Hearts

by: Minister Melissa Morales

There is a saying that “No Man Is an Island.” Well, that is definitely true. Our family, friends and even our co-workers could give us some comfort or help especially when we are in need. However, there are also times that we want to be alone. Sometimes it is also helpful to deal things on our own. I am not saying to handle every situation away from God. This action is a huge NO, NO! In short, IT IS A MISTAKE WITHOUT GOD. In moments like this it is ALWAYS better to approach God at ALL times.

To have an “Alone Time” is not bad at all because ALL Christ followers should wisely used this feeling to draw closer to Jesus Christ. The question is How? How are we suppose to comfort our hearts in amidst of chaos or troubles? In this blog, we are going to share the 2 Easy Ways to comfort our own Hearts.

First, we should comfort our heavy hearts with the Word of God. It is written in Matthew 24:35. “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away (NIV).” This Bible verse alone gives us an assurance that everything on earth has limits and expiration date including you and me, but the Word of God will still Stand FOREVER. The Best way is to meditate the Word of God. Let us soak our mind with His Holy Word because “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16, NIV).” For this reason we have to HONOR God’s word more than any professional advice, more than other peoples’ suggestion and more than our own will. Comforting ourselves with God’s Word is not always bed of roses but it is also filled of rebuke that we probably also need to hear. It is really a mistake when we choose to ignore God’s correction. We have to remember that God discipline His children (Hebrews 12:4-12). How can the Holy Spirit comfort us if we reject the Truth? The truth really hurts but it sets us free (John 8:32).

Secondly, we can comfort our heart by claiming God’s promises. The Holy Bible is filled with His Mighty Oath that God has given to those who truly loves Him. Sometimes it’s hard to read, meditate or even shout God’s promises but let us remember that Jesus Christ is NOT dead (Luke 8:52). Let us put our Trust in the Lord for “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? (Numbers 23:19, KJV).” So, never entertain doubts for our God is Almighty.

The Word of God and His promises are the best way to comfort our heavy hearts. Whether we have companies or not, we all need to seek God first at all times. So, we can live a life victoriously and with God’s peace.

Why Should I Accept Jesus Christ as my Lord & Savior?

by: Pastor Isaias T. Songcuan Jr.

It is aggressively revealed in the scripture that only those who are born again signifies the sheep of our Lord Jesus (John 10:1-18). These are the ones who hears His Voice, and will not follow the voice of strangers (John 10:5 ). Their ears and their feet are trained to hear and obey the voice of the shepherd. They are also trained to walk in His footsteps. There are numerous blessings and benefits that are promised in the Scripture for anyone who makes Jesus his or her shepherd in their lives. These are 7 blessings and benefits if Jesus Christ is your Shepherd:

1) Salvation:

In Hebrews 7:25 says, “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them (NKJV).” In other words, Jesus will lead all those who follow Him into the Kingdom of God.

2.) Eternal Life:

The Holy Bible says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (NIV).” In short, anyone who receives Jesus Christ in their life to be their Lord and Savior has Eternal Life in Heaven where no more pain, sorrows and death (Revelation 21:4).

3). Abundant life:

It is written in John 10:10, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly (NKJV).” The beginning of abundant life experience in Christ is Salvation. For instance, anyone who believes in Him is saved from sicknesses, diseases, saved from poverty, and in spiritual life (3 John 1:2 ). The Holy Scriptures states, “as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue (2 Peter 1:3, NKJV).” Moreover , in Psalms 23:5, “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over (NKJV).” Jesus is able to prepare a table for His sheep, even in the presence of their enemies. Let us see Psalms 23:6, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever (NKJV).” This is the assurance of God’s sheep that He will not refuse or deny any good things from his sheep.

4). Divine Guidance:

Jesus is Omniscient, meaning He knows everything. In Proverbs 15:3 says, “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the evil and the good (KJV).” Therefore, God is able to lead and guide his sheep. He knows the end from the beginning, He knows before hand or in advance to the outcome of any plan or project that His sheep will undertake. He is very much aware of the road that apparently seems promising and encouraging at the beginning, but which may later pose serious danger to His sheep. Jesus has the ability to prevent and stop the danger, and lead the sheep in the paths of righteousness and safety. Jesus is eager to lead His sheep to the paths that will guarantee success, happiness, joy, peace, and everlasting satisfaction.

5) . Divine Protection:

The good Shepherd offers divine protection to the sheep . Jesus laid down His life to protect the sheep from satan, whose whole aim is to destroy the sheep. However, Jesus guarantees the protection for His sheep from all forces of evil , such as native doctors (Quack-quack doctors), witches, wizards, and the occultist power. There is no limitation as regards the extent to which Jesus protects His sheep. He is omnipotent. In other words, He is all powerful. Therefore the protection of the sheep is guaranteed in full. In Isaiah 54:17, “But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you (NLT).” These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord.

6). Peace:

In Isaiah 9:6b says, “He is the Prince of peace.” Jesus said in John 14:27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid (NLT).” In all situations of life , we have the peace of Jesus .

7). Victory:

The temptations, trials, and difficulties of life can only be overcome through the leading of the Good shepherd, Jesus Christ. In Him and in Him alone, we are more than conquerors in every situations in life. The scripture is full of all God’s promises for His sheep. The sheep must bear in mind that these blessings are not based upon the prevailing economic circumstances, and that no power or force of the enemy can prevent or stop any of God’s blessing coming upon the sheep. Every sheep must steady His or Her heart on Jesus .

There are some serious consequences of not paying attention and following the Good Shepherd’s voice. The refusal of the sheep to obey the voice of the master (Jesus Christ) will result in grave consequences. When a sheep does not honoring the voice of the shepherd it gets lost , and exposing itself to danger. In our spiritual life, the believers is expected to obey His voice. When the voice of Good shepherd is not obeyed or followed the believer will be astray, and exposes their-selves to danger. Open to be attack by the enemy. The enemy uses such opportunity or chance to afflict the believer with sicknesses, diseases, failures, troubles and heartaches. However, it is encouraging to know that even in such situations the Good Shepherd, Jesus still goes in to search for the lost sheep. Calling on Jesus to repent and return to Him . It is never God’s expectation that we go astray from Him.

The Lord Jesus is the Good Shepherd. He is the only one who cares for you, who nourishes, preserves, protects, leads, guides and provides for the fullness of the sheep. There are numerous blessings God Bestows upon His sheep. These blessings can only be utilize by the obedient sheep. Jesus said in His word, “I know my sheep” ( John 10: 27b). He knows our strength as well as our weak points. He is aware of difficulties you are facing at your work , business, family or at your own home. Jesus knows the need of your Spirit your soul, and your body. Remember always that having Our Lord Jesus as the Good shepherd implies adequate care for you.

Is the Holy Bible a Fairy Tale?

by: Minister Melissa Morales

If the Word of God is a fairy tale written by human beings then why it is the most demanding book throughout history in the world? Do you think that the Holy Bible makes anyone a gullible that gives them a drive to love God more, and gives a person to live better so, they can be blessing to others by showing love and kindness? Are these behavior inspired by a fairy tale? I don’t think so. Many books can inspire but the Word of God transformed lives. Do you not know that there were and are scientist who debunk or refute their own theory that God is not real? For it is written in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works (KJV).” This is the reason whether a person is rich or poor, educated or not cannot withstand against God’s Word. No one and nothing can stop the Truth.

To answer the question if the Holy Bible is a Fairy Tale? No, the Holy Scripture is NOT a fairy tale. The Holy Bible cannot be tame by anything or anyone because it will NEVER PERISH unlike you and me. The evidence speaks louder that the Holy Bible will always be the NUMBER ONE SOLD OUT and ALWAYS BE ON DEMAND BOOK through out history, and throughout the world. For it is consistent about God’s love, His Nature and it is filled with true to life stories that even the history agrees with it. God used His faithful followers to write the manuscript but they were all LEAD BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. Think about this, during those times there were No ready made Bible Book, No internet available, No cellphone not even a telegram for the writers to communicate and agree to each other what to write. In addition, all of them didn’t wrote the Scriptures at the same time. They didn’t have easy access on the manuscript. If we believe the Holy Bible was written by any other like-authors out there. It will NEVER be holy because the book will ONLY be based on human reasoning and knowledge. It will definitely need a revise edition every now and then.

The Holy Bible is unique from all the book that has been written, and about to be publish because it gives life, hope and it tells the TRUTH that set everyone FREE “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12, KJV).”

Will God Love Me?

by: Pastor Isaias T. Songcuan Jr.

In the book of Luke Chapter 15 verses 11-31 from the Holy Bible. Talks about the “Prodigal Son.” This Parable makes it obvious that GOD was at work. The Father is watching for his lost son, waiting for him, longing for him. While the father wait for his son’s return, he was able to see the younger son when he was still a long way off. Then the father runs toward his son. The father embraced him, he dearly loves him, and the father give him gifts. The Father was fully aware of his son’s behavior and lifestyle. The son disrespected Him, acted outrageously and in the end, his son lost everything. In spite of all, the father lavishes on his son’s return by celebrating extravagantly.

This is a Wonderful picture of the great love of GOD toward us. When we come to Him, Jesus Christ washes away all our evil deeds and not holding them against us. As it is written in Micah 7:19, “He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea (KJV).

The Parable of the prodigal son also shows the attitude of self-righteous. This sin was pictured by the older son. He quarreled with his Father that the younger son had messed up and yet the Father prepared for him the “fattened calf. ” The older brother considered himself better than his younger brother. He could not share with his Father’s joy. The older son’s hardness of heart made him unaware of the riches available to him in his Father’s house. He had no more love for the Father. The eldest son forgotten of all the good things the Father freely provided for him at all times.

Both sin and self-righteousness separate us from GOD . We all acquire GOD’s grace; His “unearned, unmerited” Love for us. HE always continues to seek after us, regardless of state that we are in. We all have sinned and deserves GOD’s Judgement. GOD the Father sent His Son Jesus Christ to satisfy that Judgement. Jesus Christ, the eternal son of GOD who lived a sinless life. He Loves us so much that he died for our sins; taking the punishment that we deserve. He was buried, and rose from the dead according to the scriptures (Mark 16:6). IF you truly believe and receive Jesus Christ alone as your Savior; declaring “JESUS IS LORD” in your life then you will be saved from judgement and spend Eternity with GOD in heaven. This is how much God loves us. Jesus love is available for everyone who truly seek Him.
