GOD’S LOVE and MAN’S LOVE

GOD’S LOVE and MAN’S LOVE

Can love materialize with only one person?

A. KEY BIBLE VERSES

Rom 8:28-30 ISV 28 And we know that FOR THOSE WHO LOVE GOD, that is, for those who are called according to his purpose, all things are working together for good. 29 For those whom he FOREKNEW he also PREDESTINED to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that the Son might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also CALLED; and those whom he called, he also JUSTIFIED; and those whom he justified he also GLORIFIED.

B. KEY POINTS TO PONDER

1. Love is a 2-way process and it involves 2 parties.

2. Love is not dictated, coerced or forced – it’s based on one’s free will. When the first party proposed, the other party must say, ” I Do.”, for the love/marriage to materialize.

3. God loves us first – even if we and when we are still sinners.

Rom 5:8 ISV But GOD demonstrates his LOVE for US by the fact that the Messiah died for us while we were still sinners.

Joh 3:16 KJV 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.

4. When you and I love God – by believing in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord – then, our love relationship with God is established (FORKNEW).

C. CONCLUSION

1. God loves the world – all people – first.

2. When you love God back or For those who love God (those who repent and believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord) …

a. God foreknew us. (Knowlege beforehand; And it also pertains to the intimate love/sexual relationship between husband and wife.)

b. He predestined us. (To be Christ-like with Heaven as the ultimate eternal destiny of Believers.)

c. He called us. (Believers are called adopted sons and daughters of God.)

d. He justified us. (Declared Not Guilty by Father God or No more Penalty for Sins of Believers.)

e. God glorified us. (Believers will be provided with resurrected/glorified bodies designed for eternal life in Heaven where there’s No Presence of Sin.)

NOTE: All the verbs mentioned above are in the past tense. Why? Because, as far as All-knowing God is concerned, salvation from Hell or the Believer going to Heaven for all eternity is a done deal. It is finished!

To GOD Be All Glory!

ETERNAL LIFE

ETERNAL LIFE

AM I 100% SURE OF MY ETERNAL LIFE WITH JESUS

A. KEY BIBLE VERSE

“These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may KNOW that you have ETERNAL LIFE.”
–(1 John 5:13, NASB)

B. REFLECTION:

Do I know for sure that I have eternal life in JESUS?

If I am certain that God hears my prayers, how should I be living my life? Do I still need to worry?

What uncertainties do I fear should be replaced with the certainty in JESUS?

C. ACTION POINT:

If I am a believer of JESUS
— His person and His work
— and I place my full trust
in Him, eternal life is indeed CERTAIN.

The verse is not telling me that it wishes or desires that I can have one, BUT it is telling me that I must know that I certainly have it — meaning it is for sure, GUARANTEED!

And that is why I need to focus more on what is eternal rather than what is temporal, because eternity is so vast, it’s everlasting compared to my time here on earth.

I shall focus on the beautiful things that are for me in eternity in Christ JESUS, rather than on my temporary uncertainties here on earth.

JESUS is in charge. He is, in fact, holding all things together. “All things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” (Colossians 1:16-17)

JESUS holds all things and is in charge from eternity past to eternity future. I need not be afraid of the uncertainties of this temporal world, for in JESUS, I have the CERTAINTY… of ETERNAL LIFE! 🙏

To GOD Be All Glory!

CTTO: TWO MINUTE DAILY SPIRITUAL DEVOTION

The Theory of Biological Evolution

When origins of life are discussed, there are 2 types of science (knowledge) involved: Historical science (one’s belief of the past) and Observational science (knowledge gained by observation or repeated tests).

Please note that available human historical written records are only about 4,000 years old. Thus, when a geologist classifies rocks as igneous, sedimentary or metamorphic, this is observational science. However, when same geologist then claims that the rocks are millions of years old, this is historical science. Remember: He was not there!

Mind you, there is no living scientist or human witness who was there to observe the formation of the universe via the Big Bang 15 billion years ago, nor the formation of the earth 5 billion years ago, nor the formation of 1 living cell from chemicals a long, long time ago. These are all non-repeatable events  (such that no woman or man can make a valid conclusion) and are all part of historical (belief or religion) science.

So, someone summarized THE THEORY OF BIOLOGICAL EVOLUTION for us as follows:

“Once, I was a tadpole when I began to begin

Then, I was a frog with my tail tucked in.

Next I, was a monkey on a coconut tree

Now, I am a doctor with a Ph D.”

And  Dr. Louis Bonoure, a noted French scientist, branded this theory of evolution as a “fairy tale for grown-ups”.  Many scientists now called it a hoax, a fraud, a myth or a speculation. Here’s why?

The source of life is the “Achilles Heel” of THE THEORY OF BIOLOGICAL EVOLUTION. It claims that a long, long time ago – by chance or random processes and  under ideal conditions – non-living chemicals combined to form a living cell. And this single living cell replicate itself to evolve into an amoeba, to an alligator, to an albatross, to an ape and finally, to an astronaut.

However, the always nagging questions in this theory are: Who created those chemicals? Can life really evolve from non-living things? Casual scientific observations will tell us that time and chance don’t build up things, but tear them down (e.g., soil erosion, deserts, houses, etc.).

Did you know that according to a distinguished British astronomer, Sir Fred Hoyle, the probability that non-living chemicals combining to form a living cell is far, far lesser than the probability that a tornado whirling into a big junkyard (containing various aircraft parts, fuel, wirings, programs, and controls) will accidentally assemble a functional Boeing 747 jumbo plane ready for take-off?

A molecular scientist revealed that each human cell contains more information than the 30 volumes of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. (A living cell can process energy, store vast amount of information and  can replicate itself. Non-living things can’t do these.) If the encyclopaedia was not an offshoot of random chance or unguided natural processes, but the design of an author, therefore by inference or logic, our living cells are a signature of an Intelligent Designer, isn’t it?

The double helix of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid, a highly sophisticated system and the building block of life that has vast amount of information in the right sequence with the right connections) is too intricate and complex to form by chance. In fact, no scientist can synthesize basic chemical elements like carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, and others to form  a DNA. And then, inject a “living soul” in it who will eventually know what is right from wrong. The DNA clearly  points to an Intelligent Designer – GOD. (Just like the iPhone you might be holding  in your hand, it just didn’t pop up by chance, it has a designer too, isn’t it?)

Fossils that are supposed to provide the missing links (e.g., from ape to man) and intermediate species (e.g., cogs or dats) are still missing up to now despite more than a hundred years of digging. Why? Because there is no such thing as vertical or macro-evolution from one specie to another specie.

In schools, only man-made drawings  (various ape-like creatures that morph into a man) are provided to biology students as proofs. But here are the facts: The bones of the original Java Man, one of the so-called missing links, belongs to 2 different creatures – the skull is from a gibbon, the femur to a man. And the Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon tribes were not ape-men but were true men. Haeckel’s drawings that depict the embryos of a fish, salamander, tortoise, chicken, pig, calf, rabbit, and man side-by-side at 3 stages of development – to portray similarities in animal development or evolution – are fake or doctored drawings.

Finally, in year 2,000, genetic scientists of The Human Genome Project (HGP) concluded that all men and women came from just one (1) race – the human race. This finding is in line with the Bible, the Word of GOD, which declares that all human beings (you and I) came from Adam and Eve – who  were both created by the All-knowing and All-powerful GOD.

The head of the HGP was Francis S. Collins, a medical doctor with a doctorate in chemistry. He was formerly an atheist who looked at Jesus Christ as “a myth, a fairy tale, a superhero in a bedtime story.” But because of the faith of his desperately ill patients, he chose to investigate and found compelling  evidences on the life, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Eventually, he became a Believer.

To date, it takes more faith to believe that you came from the monkeys than to believe in GOD who created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1: 1).

Which one is God’s Word: The KORAN or The BIBLE?

The Answer: Koran or Bible, only one word is needed to prove which one is the true God’s Word: ISRAEL.

If Israel is true (or it exists), then the Bible is true while the Koran is false. Or else, if Israel is false (or it does not exist), then the Bible is false while the Koran is true.

The Koran’s Word on Israel/Jews

  1. The Jew’s are the only chosen people of Allah. (This was revealed by Allah when Mohammad was still enticing the Jews in Arabia to join him in his new religion – Islam. During this period, around 600 AD, the Jews were already scattered in various parts of the world.)

“O Children of Israel! Remember my Favour which I bestowed upon you and that I preferred you to the “Alamin (mankind and jinn (of your time period, in the past)).”” (Surah 2: 47, 122).

  1. The Jews asked Mohammad to perform a miracle/sign to prove that he is a true Prophet or he is God-sent. Despite intense pleadings to Allah, Mohammad couldn’t produce a miracle. Mohammad was deeply embarrassed and he lost face. He only got this word from Allah as an excuse:

“Say: “The signs are only with Allah, and I am only a plain warner. It is not sufficient for them that We have sent down to you the Book (the Koran) which is recited to them?” (Surah 29: 50-51).

  1. Since Mohammad was not able to perform any miracle to prove that he is God-sent, the Jews in Arabia rejected and branded him as a false Prophet. Mohammad really got mad and he began a program to exterminate the Jews (which his followers are still implementing up to now in order to obliterate Israel and to prove Allah is the true God).

For example, in the Battle against the Qurayzah tribe in AD 627, Mohammad ordered the beheading/massacre of 900 Jewish men who have already surrendered. And Mohammad got 20% of the spoils of war – money, women and children to be sold as slaves – and the rest was divided among his soldiers, as per Allah’s decree. (Please note that one of the 114 chapters of the Koran is entitled, “Spoils of War”, while no chapter is entitled, “Peace”.)

And here are some of the Koran’s final words on the Jews:

  1. “Allah has cursed them for their disbelief, so they believe not except a few.” (Surah 4: 46, 26: 196-197).
  2. “Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, and those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines …” (Surah 5: 60).
  3. “Kill the Mushrikun (unbelievers) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush. But if they repent and perform As-Salat (the five ritual prayers per day), and give Zakat (alms) then leave their way free. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Surah 9: 5).

The last mentioned verse, Surah 9: 5, is known as the Verse of the Sword – the Koran’s final or ultimate declaration of war against Jews, Christians, and other unbelievers of Islam. This single verse nullify, abrogate or override all of the previous peace-related verses of the Koran (as per Naskh or the system of interpreting conflicting or contradicting verses in the Koran, later developed by Mohammad’s followers).

The Bible’s Word on Israel/Jews

  1. This is the prophecy for Israel revealed around 750 BC through Prophet Amos (which was literally fulfilled starting in 1948 AD):

“I will bring back my exiled people Israel; they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them.

They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit.

I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them,” says the Lord your God.  (Amos 9: 14-15).

  1. And this is the promise of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to Israel:

“I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on the earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12: 3).

NOTE: If you’ve been using your smart phone to text or communicate with your loved ones and friends, then you’ve been blessed through Israel because a Jew invented texting.

Now, when you want to get the ultimate blessing through a JEW – to surely be with God in the Bible’s Heaven (not the Koran’s Paradise) someday – then, come and see @ www.youinheaven.com.

You’ll be very glad you did!

Rapture

Rapture

Are YOU RAPTURE – READY?

Yes, someday you can fly! Will you?

I felt I would be remiss if I won’t *share with you 1 of the most important prophecies of the Bible which shall surely be fulfilled in the near future: The RAPTURE.

First, this question: When the flesh and bones of your dead loved one are buried 6 feet deep under the earth, how can she completely be in HEAVEN now and forever?

Many believe that GOD provides temporary bodies to all people when they die. In the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ, the rich man who died has eyes to look up, has a tongue to speak up and a body to feel his torment and agony in HELL’s fire. Likewise, the beggar Lazarus, who died at the same time, was seen standing side by side with Abraham in Paradise. (Luke 16: 19-31).

While still living here on earth, Jesus Christ promised this to His Disciples, “In my Father’s house (HEAVEN) …. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” (John 14: 2-3).

Furthermore, Jesus Christ declared and foretold, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” (John 11: 25-26). Thus, someday, many people will never physically die!

With the proliferation of the images of Jesus Christ (black or white, babe, child or man, clean or bloodied), when He comes back, how do we know for sure if He’s the real Jesus Christ? For all you know, even with nail-scarred hands, he might just be an impostor to deceive many – say, a Jew-looking penitent who was crucified in Cutud, San Fernando, Pampanga.

Did you know that GOD, by His supernatural power, has installed a split-second, fail-safe mechanism (that even Satan can’t copy or replicate) so that Believers will know for sure the real Jesus Christ when He comes back? Please read on, you’ve much to gain.

This promised and prophetic event of Jesus Christ coming back to fetch BELIEVERS is known as the RAPTURE or “to snatch away”. It’s described for us in the Bible as follows:

“Listen, I tell you a mystery. We will not all sleep (die), but we will all be changed – in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.” (1 Corinthians 15: 51-53). And,

“We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him…. For the Lord himself will come down from Heaven, with a loud command, …. and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4: 14-18).

So, someday, here’s when BELIEVERS will fly – the RAPTURE!

In sum, at the RAPTURE (an imminent, instantaneous event), the earthly bodies of the dead and living BELIEVERS will be resurrected or transformed into glorified ones. And their resurrected bodies will combine with their souls and spirits – in a twinkling of an eye. Then, they will fly and meet Jesus Christ in the air – to be with Him, forever and ever. And so, at this future moment, any BELIEVER – dead or alive – will experience victory over the world, the flesh, death, grave, Hell, and Satan.

BELIEVERS also call the RAPTURE the Blessed Hope – the glorious appearing of our great GOD and Savior, Jesus Christ. (Titus 2: 13).

Noah and his family being saved by GOD from the worldwide catastrophic flood (Genesis 6-8) and Lot being “snatched” by GOD prior to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by fire (Genesis 19) are proven historical events attested by archaeology. These are our models for the forthcoming RAPTURE. We ought to know and take lessons from these 2 key events: Be saved or Experience the wrath of GOD!

Therefore, are you RAPTURE – ready NOW? (Be sure to be so or else someday, you’ll be left behind to have the pain of regret and wrath that will last for all eternity.)

When you absolutely, positively want to be RAPTURE – ready, even NOW, then this eBook, “How to get to HEAVEN someday, Forever “, is for you. Come, grab it now by clicking any of the following sources or links:

Who was the First PERSON to be BORN AGAIN?

Who was the First PERSON to be BORN AGAIN?

Did you know that the Son of God became the Son of Man, so that sons (daughters) of men may become sons (daughters) of God?

  • Jesus Christ who was born (begotten) of God was born again of man, so that we who were born of men can be born again of God.
  • Jesus Christ who was born of Heaven was born again of earth, so that we who were born on earth could be born again of Heaven.
  • And Jesus Christ who was born of Spirit was born again of the flesh, so that we who were born of the flesh could be born again of the Spirit.

Please remember, Jesus Christ declared, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again (reborn from above).” (John 3: 3).

So, right now, have you been born again (reborn from above) to surely get to Heaven someday? If so, how do you know?

If not yet, what can you do about this?

Let us help you do it. Kindly, come and see @ www.youinheaven.com .
