Merry Christmas 2016 everyone!!

#MerryChristmas #MerryChristmas2016


Merry Christmas 2016 everyone!!

As Christians around the world remembers the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Just a few more days to go :D

For all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God, and therefore sin separates us from the Living God and condemns us to hell... Because God is Good and Holy, He is righteous and just... He is not a Judge to turn a blind eye to sin and accepts one into Heaven (imagine Hitler entering to Heaven, that is not just). In the same way our sins must be judged as well by The Lord sitting on the Throne.

Imagine if you died today and you stand in front of God Almighty... would you dare say you have lived a perfect life without sin? The Scriptures has said men is once appointed to die and then the judgement (currently scientific studies proves that all human beings are going to die one day... 100%)


#Sin #SeperatedfromGod #Salvation


At the same time there is this disgusting vile and abhorred sin wicked, dirty and evil thoughts in the hearts and mind of men... Selfish and hopeless... Unfaithfulness... Adultery destroying marriages, murders and killings going on... God still is Sovereign, He is still God and He Loves you. So, He sent His only Begotten Son, Jesus unto the world as a baby. He grew up and and served the people... Lived a life in total obedience to God, The Father. Lived a perfect life and then... He was murdered on a cross, the most humiliating way to die in history during the times of the Roman Empire reigning over Jerusalem about 2000 years ago.

This was God's very own plan, because Jesus was perfect and without blame... He was holy and did not sin one bit in His life... So, why did He died? He proclaimed Himself to be God's Son... He Proclaimed Himself to be The Saviour... He Proclaimed Himself to be the Truth, the Bread of Life, The Good Shepherd and The Only Way to God. He died for our sins, being a propitiation for us... and God's Judgement upon sin was satisfied when Jesus became sin for us and died for our sins. Paying in FULL the punishment meant for our sins.

That whoever would believe in Him, trust Him, have Faith upon Him... CONFESS that Jesus Christ is Lord. REPENT of sin and turning to Jesus asking for forgiveness... One could get saved from the coming judgement and wrath against sin. And THAT is the hope we have. Having eternal life in the Hands of Him Who died for us, saving us... in Heaven.



#War #WW3 #Rumorsofwar #WWIII


Even though the world seems to be in chaos and never ending wars (including rumors of WWIII) are in place... We shall not forget Jesus Who is The Lord Jesus Christ will come again in His second coming... and He is coming again soon. This world is temporary... Jesus will be the one fixing up everything (hopefully He will be doing that very soon, this world is in a mess!) O How fearful it is to fall into the Hands of The Lord... May we all be on the right side when He do comes.

The Church has been waiting for the coming of Jesus for almost 2000 years!

As for now, let us celebrate once again the 1st coming of Jesus into the Earth!! Merry Christmas everybody :)

5 ways believing in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour has changed my L.I.F.E.

A simple life made more meaningful with Jesus in it


1. Having the assurance that I'm in for a better future beyond the grave

Understanding the Gospel that The Lord Jesus Christ has became sin and died on the cross for your sin, fully paying the price @ consequence @ satisfying the justice of God that when I have confessed my sins... asked for forgiveness turned to Jesus deciding in my life I would follow Him... believe in my heart @ cling on @ put my whole trust upon what Jesus Christ has done for me... confessing and making Him my Lord... Jesus has definitely changed my life from that point onward. I can not describe how the Good News has struck my heart that day... Being a Buddhist for years since I was a teenager I just had the revelation that Jesus is The Son of God and God Himself manifested in the flesh. I knew I found TRUTH when I made the decision to believe and receive Him into my life.


I had this heart full of joy after that and slowly having a better understanding and a greater assurance on Salvation. I began to look forward and responding to the conviction of The Holy Spirit regarding certain areas of my life and slowly throwing out hundreds of mini idol statues at home... throwing out all the books on the topic of Buddhism and just having a renewed mind about life having Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. I began to see this life is temporary and short... I began to have the understanding of what I have been saved from... Hell... and knowing the Grace and Mercy showed upon my life received in His Kingdom and on my way to heaven has brought me to be humbled in many many occasions... I say to myself "This is real". Although there were days of challenges, rainy days, disappointments and discouragements, at times the assurance of Salvation is strengthen and comfort and help comes to pick me up to continue the race.


2. I became passionate about my FAITH and began sharing to people what happened to me

I remember there was this one time I actually flew across the country to meet 2 friends and began sharing to them about what Jesus has done in my life in a restaurant during dinner. I was so on fire and enthusiastic that I was thinking "I have to tell people about Jesus." I was just recently converted and transformed at that time.

Years has passed since then and I have went through so many ups and downs trying to maneuver myself through the bushes and thick jungle (one the reason being I wasn't planted in a Church and didn't have a Pastor for the first 3 years of my Christian baby walk). But once in awhile, I would have the opportunity to share Jesus to random people, co-workers, friends of friends, close friends and so on. I knew Jesus Christ is Lord and the Son of The Living God... I had assurance and I have a testimony to share.

Some of them who knew me before I was a Christian saw the changed in me... and I want to encourage you too that your sharing about Jesus to friends and families does make a difference. Jesus has changed my life and others knows that too.

Some were annoyed, some took it in a whim, some tried to make their own conclusion of what happened to me (probably throughout the years I began to have some wisdom on how to share my Faith, I would have done things differently that time if I had the wisdom I have now)... But ultimately talking about Jesus is one of my passions and I really appreciate it when another brother or sister in Christ shares what Jesus has done in their life too.


3. I've learned how to pray

1st I was baptized in water

2nd I was baptized in The Holy Spirit

Then life wasn't the same in regards of prayer. I have to say praying in immersing in the comfort of The Father, having fellowship with The Son in His Holy Spirit has been one of the foundation that has helped me to stay a Christian when pressured and questioned about my Faith... When things goes wrong and when challenges comes by... Prayer has indeed helped me go through the hard times and answered prayers has come timely to provide me for protection and guidance.


4. I began to read AND understand the Bible

It wasn't long before I had this heart and thought that "Now I need to get myself a Bible and begin to read it." This happened a few days after I received Jesus (If I could remember correctly). I began to study the Word of God and make side notes and highlighted certain verses that has caught my attention or has blessed me.


Reading the Bible helped me to understand certain sermons better and has blessed me to understand the Gospel in a better way. Not mentioning the help I get in my prayer... In comfort... and so on...


But I also have to say. reading the Bible has saved my life by making me realize the wrong turns and wrong paths I was walking upon in life... Helped me to make wise decisions and blessed me turn away from destructive habits. Having said that, it also gave me revelation and wisdom to just continue running the race as a Christian. Letting the Word of God sinking in my life and putting into action what is demanded of The Lord our God... This gave me tremendous help as I am reminded of God's Word at times when I really needed it.


5. I began to love other not with an oogie gooie kind of love but care, being kind and having a heart to serve others

It was like I had a heart of stone before and was only thinking of myself, I and me all the time... When reality hits and I was converted... It was like I was given a heart of flesh that began pumping and placed others before me. I began to serve others... help others... and show kindness to people. Jesus just gave me so much love that I just began to love others too.

Began to happily open doors for people, began to try to actually make an effort to understand others, had the heart to make others comfortable... Although I am far than perfect, but there was this changed from within me that just wanted to share the Love of Christ that was shed in my heart.

Well, that's all I wanted to share today... The Lord Jesus Christ can really help you in your walk as a Christian... If you haven't had an encounter with Jesus yet... It's worth your time, effort and life to seek the TRUTH and sincerely finding out for yourself: Who is Jesus?

I choose to serve the Living God

To Serve The Lord

By Albrecht Patrick Raphael

All glory be to God, The Creator of Heaven and Earth...
Who since the Beginning has created All things...
For His Glory... For Him Only...
His Grace abounds still unto His creations...
Showing mercy and loving-kindness in this short life of mine...

O What have I done in my own strength to deserve your favor... Nothing
What good in me that has pleased the Lord that came from my own hands? Nothing
Was I grateful unto Him before I knew Christ? No...
Was I bowing down to Him before the Gospel was made known to me? No

It is a privilege to serve the Lord...
When I didn't chose Him first... He chose me
It is a privilege to serve the Lord...
My praises and thanksgiving goes to Him...
O it is a privilege to serve the Lord...
For I never had it in my mind to do so... He has gave me a new heart...
O it is a privilege to serve the Lord...
For it is not by my might but by His Holy Spirit...

All praises be unto you my Father God Who is in Heaven!
Who gave His Only Begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth unto this world...
How long O people will you close your ears towards the Gospel?
How long O people will you continue in blindness?
How long O people will you walk in darkness?

Give me strength O God to bring me through these times...
When there is no hope Jesus' Light shines through...
Give me wisdom O Lord to serve thy people...
When The Gospel is preach... One might listen and believe in The Lord Jesus...

For what is a man who gain the whole world but loses his own soul?
Bring another wind of revival my God! my Savior!
Sweep these lands one more time!
That people will turn to you once again...
That people would let go of the idolatrous ways...
That people would come to you and bow down...
Believing in their hearts and confessing with their mouths...
That Jesus Christ is Lord of all...

For what am I compared to you O Lord when I was without Christ...
O that the people would come back to you...
come back to their senses and discern well...
Having wisdom that life is so short...
Too short...
O... What a waste... to live this life...
not knowing the true purpose of one's existence...
O Lord have mercy...
Here I am O God... here I am...

Don't Kill Yourself Just Yet... God Loves you


God loves you that He sent His only Begotten Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for your sin... He is not willing that anyone should perish but all would come into the saving knowledge through The Lord Jesus Christ... Salvation for our soul... a reconciliation with the Creator of Heaven and Earth through the redeeming blood of Jesus...

Your sinful life can not last for long until it gives you an emptiness within your heart and an unsatisfied desire of seeking for something that could stop the burning lust that so makes you miserable in life... You can not stand to be alone... Because in those times the unbearable thoughts of past regrets... unfulfilled life... failures... disappointments... the depression and also the defeats... as well as the feeling of life is meaningless comes to your heart and mind... It torments you to make you stay up all night in tears and also in pain...

What if I told you... God loves you and He cares... and you yourself know that you can not blame God on the outcome of your life... Because up until today, the outcome of your life is based on your previous decisions... and you yourself know it...

You chose to bitter instead of forgiving yourself or others...
You chose to live in sin instead of sincerely and earnestly seeking God...

How can I forgive myself??
How can God forgive me from what I have done??
How could I forgive others from what they had done to me??

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
The Holy Bible
The Gospel of John
Chapter 3, verses 16 to 18

God loves you even when you hate yourself... He loves you that He was willing to die for you... became sin for you... taking full punishment of sin upon Himself... to satisfy the Justice of God. Because if you were to receive what you deserve... The punishment for the sins you have committed... the wicked and evil deeds you have done birthed from your heart... You would not dare to even justify yourself come judgement day when you stand in front of God in His Full Glory and Holiness and Power after you have died... You would not be spared if you were to receive what you deserve...

BUT

Praise be to GOD, our Father... Lord, God Most High...

That Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour has died on the Cross for your sins that you would be justified by Jesus' righteousness  and what He has done on the Cross for you having being a propitiation for you... That you would not be condemned but SAVED... believing in Him Whom had died for you... That you would not have to pay for the debt of your sins against God...
He died... was buried AND rose up from the dead... having victory upon death and sin...

  • Jesus can set you free from the bondage of sin that so makes you miserable and depressed...
  • He can give you an unimaginable PEACE within you having knowledge that know you are reconciled with God...
  • Jesus is able to heal the wounds in your heart... in your mind... in your soul...
  • And God, The Father can be your God, your Father...
  • Trust in Him... He Loves you... He really does...

Even if your problems would not disappear... But you can receive a peace in your heart to sail through the challenges and the troubles in this life... Having your eyes set in a better hope... a better life and a better future in The Lord Jesus Christ... in the afterlife...

I'm not here to do a theology class... or to debate about Christianity... But I'm here to tell you...

that...

JESUS CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IS REAL

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IS ALIVE

AND HE WILL COME BACK AGAIN

TO SET THINGS RIGHT IN THIS WORLD

Therefore, my hope is not in this world... But in Christ Jesus, my Lord...

R.E.P.E.N.T.

B.E.L.I.E.V.E.

F.O.L.L.O.W.

Cry out to Him... Call upon His Name... Ask for Him to save you

Have I Ever Told You Why...

Have I Ever Told You Why
by Albrecht P. Raphael

Have I ever told you why...
I guess I can't ever remember...
Whether I ever did or not...
So let me tell you...
That you might have peace...


It was all of a sudden...
I have changed.. I was not the person you knew before...
You were confused of the things I shared to you...
How my heart of stone was changed into a heart that is alive,,,
a heart that beats... a heart of flesh...

For the years you have known me...
You couldn't explain what has just happened...
My speech has changed...
The things I used to say... I say no more...
The dreams that we used to share... we share no more...

I couldn't tell you what I used to believe...
For indeed I myself was lost...
How could I have led the blind?
When I myself was blind?
But suddenly in a blink of an eye...
Here I speak to you...

That I have become a Christian...
That I have renounced the gods of my ancestors...
That I am a follower of Christ...
That I believe that Jesus Christ is Lord...
That I have made Him My Lord and My Savior...

Owh... I remember that day as if it was yesterday...
You cried and I kept silent...
I was out of words... I thought you would be happy...
Yet a decision has to be made...
I couldn't let go of my God... yet I couldn't hold on unto both...
I had to let you go...

You didn't know there was a tearing in my soul...
I felt something was gone...
It was somehow empty...
But it was filled with joy... Filled with expectation...
Was then filled with love... Was then filled with hope...

I've knelt and prayed for you...
I have sincerely come to my God...
Asking Him, that you might know Him too...
That you would also come to know He Who has died for us...
Who hung on a tree... being torn apart and crushed...
That we would realize we can not buy our way to heaven...
But that we would be saved by Faith and Faith alone...
Believing that One has died for our sins...
That we would not need to pay the debts on our own...
That we might be free from the chains that binds us...
That we would not need to live without hope...
That we might be healed and made whole...
regenerated and made right before our God...

If only you were to know Him...
To put your trust in Him...
To believe that indeed  He is The Son of God...
God, The Son... Not of man... But from above...
And His blood was enough... He has paid it all...
Taking the full punishment of sin upon Himself...
To satisfy the justice of His Father...
That we would not boast on our own merit...
But to trust the merit that is in Christ...
To confess that He is Lord... stirred by the nudge in your heart...
Believing sincerely from the deepest wells of your heart...
That you know... beyond this life... it is either heaven or hell...
Knowing no one comes to The Father... except through Jesus...

Owh... That you never knew...
How much I have prayed for you...
How much have I cried and shed my tears...
That you would be comforted...
That you would be saved...

When you have felt that emptiness in your heart...
When you question, what is the meaning of this life?
When you know something is missing within you...
When you see the world and the beauty of the hills and flowers...
When you have that joy happiness within you...

Remember... That there is a God who designed all that is good and well pleasing unto Him...
Remember... That His Grace has made us able to laugh and be happy for a season...
Remember... That He desires to live in you... and fill that empty heart of yours...
Remember... That all that was meant for this life...was all the time... with Him...

Owh... How much would I trade my arm to go back in time...
To made amends and tell you properly...
To share to you with Love... rather than with mean... harsh words...
The hope that one could have in Christ Jesus our Lord...
The reality of the afterlife... that there is a heaven and a hell...
The reality that God... is Love... and has sent His Only Begotten Son...

For now I stand up...
My knees are tired...
I close my prayers...
And put my Trust in The Lord...
