Having mixed feelings of excitement, heartbeat skip, little frightened, joyful and grateful to the Lord in providing for my desire to know Him and what places His name in the spotlight as His every plan is revealed and every design is manifested.
Even if I combine these with those in my shelf, I don’t think I can complete a library though, a bigger shelf maybe. But I delight in these that help me grow and know about my greatest Lover and Love. I’m such a slow reader as I try to savor every thought in a book. (I’m trying my best to be faster.) ^____^
Fixing my desk books and the new ones in a pile tell me to slow down in purchasing more. I think of them as investments though. Something that I can impart to others and something I can ponder in my own heart with my Lord until my last moments.
The book in front is what I read and study in my classes for a degree from the International Bible Institute(IBI), London. My batch is already in NT101. Praise God!
Please pray for us, that we won’t approach and pursue our classes as scholars but as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, adoring Him ever deeper as He reveals Himself to us all the more.
May the Creator Savior-Lord bless you through and through!
with Christ’s love, dear reader!
9 likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, 10 but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works. 11 Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. 15 Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.
- 1 Timothy 2:9-15
Belief in Triune God, truthfulness of Holy Bible, existence of Heaven and Hell, resurrection and ascension of Jesus, forgiveness and cleansing of sin through His blood are all IMPOSSIBLE FOR MEN without proof. BUT with God, this IS possible (Luke 18:27). Christ says,”Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed”(John 20:29). Why are they blessed? Because belief in these things is a gift of God. It is “by grace you have been saved, THROUGH FAITH—and this is NOT from yourselves, it is THE gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8, emphasis mine) That’s why it’s called FAITH - it’s “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)
IF YOU BELIEVE these then be grateful, it means that God had worked in your heart enough to give you the gift of ability to have faith in these when many cannot.
IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE in these and you ‘genuinely’ want to, then ask this gift from the only One who can give it to you.
My Lord Jesus be with you bless your heart, as He increases your desire to seek Him! ♥
with Christ’s love,
God is not your genie/ATM where you just come to Him when you need to get something. Or thank Him only when you got what you wanted. Or probably say you love Him if you’re happy. He doesn’t have an obligation to bless you in any way because everybody is guilty in rebelling against Him. But if you feel that you receive even just one good thing in your life, that’s His kindness towards you. The Creator of the universe, who has no need of you and I, is not your slave that you can just order around to obey your every wish.
May 13, 2013, to Filipinos:
please VOTE WISELY! Don’t ever think that if you don’t vote, you are not responsible. You are just as equally responsible for the results as the ones who will vote. PLEASE VOTE!! Your vote..it counts. Vote anyway!
Voting is a God-given privilege, Don’t waste your votes by not voting or by giving away our future to those who we know already corrupts the government. God bless and guide you, dear reader!
When we die and face the Creator of our bodies, He will never ask about how much money we made nor how successful our careers had been.. nor how well we related with people He placed in our lives.. He wouldn’t even ask if we had been a “good” person.. nor how helpful we had been to the needy.. nor if we go to church, nor pray, not even how often we read His Holy Word… He will only ask if we accepted His beloved Son Jesus in our hearts as our Savior from eternal death, and, if we have truly followed Him as Lord of our life after that acceptance. Case closed.
“86% of Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists do not personally know a Christian”
Where have all the Bible-believing Christians gone? :(
We are probably just focusing on our own little lives, enjoying our personal salvation, and forgetting the lost.. </3
Let’s pray together, that we, Bible-believing Christians, would have the heart of Christ in loving the lost.. Christ didn’t die for us just for us to keep it and be content with it. He has a greater purpose in our lives. Let’s not miss out on this.
Be strong and of good courage!
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
There you go. It’s not a
suggestion, it’s a command. And I say this to myself and myself alone. But if this encourages you, dear Bible-believing Christian reader, then all is well, let’s both look to Christ for strength and new mercies daily as promised. His grace is sufficient for us. :)
One year had passed since April 1, 2012 - the fullest, most life changing year of my life so far. The Lord severely changed my heart in ways impossible for me to count. Major and minor. He greatly fulfilled His promises to me then: that He will never leave me nor forsake me, and that great joy comes after repentance.. The Shepherd broke the leg of His sheep who chose to go astray, just to keep her close to Him and heal her with much love. Ever carried in His arms. ♥
Q:Hello again! So I had my RareJob interview earlier, before even reading your response to my question. Well actually, the interview did not go alike how it was done before, it was just pretty much a casual conversation, no grammers or idioms were included. And yes, I kept of praying to the Lord, and I hope I would pass. Thank you! :) Share lang po.
Wow! That sounds really nice, I really hope that you passed. :) Thank you for sharing ha. It made me feel really nice even though you appear as an anon here. :D I think I was not much of a help, but I really do hope the results would be favorable. God bless your endeavors. ^___^
Q:Hello! So I see you are a RareJob tutor. I'm having my interview and I'm kinda terrified, would you please share to me what the questions would probably be?
Hi Anon! You’ll just be asked to introduce yourself a little bit then probably differentiate 2 terms or explain a phrase.. I’m not sure if this is still the system now. Don’t be nervous. Be friendly and speak clearly. Pray to Christ for strength. I’ll pray for you, too. God bless your endeavor! :)
There is nothing in the world that costs a saint so dear as doubt. If he disbelieve his God, he most assuredly robs himself of comfort, deprives himself of strength, and does himself a real injury.
“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).

Prayer is the mightiest engine God has placed in our hands.It is the best weapon to use in every difficulty, and the surest remedy in every trouble. It is the key that unlocks the treasury of promises, and the hand that draws forth grace and help in time of need. Show me a growing Christian, a goingforward Christian, a flourishing Christian, and sure am I, he is one that speaks often with his Lord. He tells Jesus everything.
