[07/21/20]   Gospel Reminder;
If You are a Preacher like me, or conducting a Bible Study Sessions, and God has given You the revelation and understanding of the Truth about Him, for You to Preach and Teach in front of many, yet You prefer to ignore and silent the Truth, because of ‘fear’ of losing Your financial support or popularity, and because it doesn't agree with the doctrine of your religion, listen to these warning!
1. You are missing the mark!
2. You are covering the Light to Shine!
3. You will be asked on the judgment day, ‘what have You done?’

[07/14/20]   Title: You are Everything But One

Father, You are unfathomable.

Your ways are great and your glory is far-reaching.

By Your power, You have made something out from nothing.

Only You are the Creator.

Everything was perfect until the fall of man

Out from this fallen state, You have reached us out.

You are God yet You are also a Father.

From being a Father in all your glory, you entered into the state of a Son.

As a Son -- only You are the Begotten.

The Son is the Only Person whom You as a Spirit God allowed Yourself to perform as God on Earth.

We have not seen the Father but because of the Son who came from the Father, we beheld Your glory

We have experienced You on a deeper level because of the Son;

Who will later become the sacrificed body to redeem us from our fallen nature

There is only one Person who has been with men.

Talked with men. Walked with men. Eat with men.

Yet Your Spirit is with this Person, there is no distinction. No not one.

This Son has forgiven sins, healed the sick, casts out demons

Which made them wonder, “who is this Person, really?”

Indeed, You are everything but One.

You must KNOW, BELIEVE and RECEIVE IT before the judgment day!
Ptr Dutch

[07/13/19]   Early meditations on the beauty of God's Grace:
As long as you are trying to earn the Grace of God, you cannot receive it. God cannot give you His grace on the basis of what you do.
If God gave Grace to you based on what you did, you would have a false picture of yourself, of God, and of everything that is involved in His relationship with us!
(excerpt from Grace alone book)
Good morning everyone!

We thank God for the opportunity to share the Word of God to our growing new ministry in Palawan and to be able to impart some spiritual and practical inputs during the leadership meeting in the afternoon. Truly God is amazing!

The church is just new but it is growing because its foundation is not built upon man but upon Jesus Christ. We do not despise this humble beginnings; all the more we celebrate it because we know that one day as we look back to these days, we can testify how God cause it to grow even more. We thank God for our humble church workers here, Pastora Vivian and Pastora Shiony who through their lives, have gradually affect the neighbouring communities. The strength and wisdom that God has provided to them surpasses what their human strength cannot do.

To God be all the glory!

April 18: Strengthening Our Spiritual Foundation in Christ

The day came when we got to see some more young people attending the 2nd day of the Discipleship Training / DVBS ( Daily Vacation Bible School). Teaching them was only one part but making them disciples of Jesus was the next big part that needed our focus and attention. I admit I was overwhelmed by the gravity of this command. Sometimes we learned it the hard way in order for us not to loose our focus-DISCIPLESHIP.
Just when we thought that's it, we have to re-assessed ourselves as to why we are here. Truly "Our labor in the Lord is not in vain" but there was something missing. And that made me realize even more that doing the work for the ministry brings inner joy. This means our own pleasure is not included because the measurement of true ministry work is not for your own pleasure but for the pleasure of our Lord Jesus Christ. Praise God for the success, yet we move forward to a lesson that should resonate to the next generation of leaders.

Day 1 April 17: Strengthening our spiritual foundation in Christ.

It was a joy seeing for the first time the younger generation all together for the purpose of bringing them closer to Jesus. Our national hero Jose Rizal might have read the Bible as he loves to read different books. His statement " Ang kabataan ang pag-asa ng bayan" gives me a new view about telling this generation that our hope anchors to the hope of all hopes, who is our Lord Jesus Christ. When you start opening your life during your younger years to Jesus, you will experience Him with such joy and love that encompasses all time.
GNCF Palawan ministry will help usher this younger generation not only to become hearers to God's Word but doers of God's Word ( James 1:22). The Great Commission is at work and training them to become disciples of Jesus is the goal of the Church.

April 16: Arrival in Palawan
Praise God for the safety all the time!
I took some photos of our arrival and how we were welcomed by VaNz Adia and Jen, young couple who are also helping the ministry here in Palawan. They welcomed us with a necklace made of seashells and capiz, much like a tourist welcomed by the locals. We weren't expecting that! Shout out to them for doing that. We felt special. 😊 En route to GNCF Palawan Fellowship Center, I was amazed of the writings of the signboard, " Ang Siodad i ang Dios nga boi " which means The City of the Living God. Truly this city has identified itself as a place where their core values start with the One who created them in the first place-GOD. I'm excited to what God will do to our GNCF Palawan Ministry, for it is in the right place all along.
And today, we will impart to the younger generation of this Ministry, what we have learned and experienced from our Father's House, in GNCF Cabreros, Cebu City. The 5 of us are not only here to enjoy the sceneries of Puerto Princesa but to bring to them the reason why we are here-To make disciples for our Lord Jesus Christ.
Glory to God for all these things!

[10/19/17]   Morning Reading:
Matthew 5:10-12

(10) Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (11) "Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. (12) Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

[10/12/17]   Jesus never taught His disciples how to preach, only how to pray…

[10/12/17]   Surround yourself with people who feed your soul, not your ego.

Pastor's Corner;
(Excerpt from "Better Preaching Update")

We’re always decrying the rise of the consumer culture within the church. But how should we expect people to act when pastors act like CEOs marketing Jesus as a product?

The Bible uses many colorful words to describe the church. It’s a family, a body, a fellowship, a holy people, a flock, and more.

But not a business.

To adopt the culture of secular business into a ministry, it will lost the very essence of its function.

Why It's A Bad Idea To Run A Church Like A Business
Anyone can own and run a business. But Jesus owns the church. So He gets to say how it should be run.

Churches cannot and should not be run like businesses.

Stewardship Isn’t Ownership

I didn't start the church. I don't own it. I don't run it. And I don't make all the decisions for it.

A church doesn’t belong to the pastor. Or the church members. Or the denominational officials. It belongs to Jesus.
Certainly, a church has business aspects to it. Like paying bills, organizing events and managing resources well. So does a family.
Yet no one thinks we should run our families like businesses. So why do we think it’s okay in the church?

[10/02/17]   Amos 7:7

7 Thus He showed me: Behold, the Lord stood on a wall made with a plumb line, with a plumb line in His hand.

Amos was a faithful messenger who delivered God’s words to His people. The message God gave was that judgment was coming to Israel unless they repented — unless they changed.

While demonstrating that He was a God of mercy, He also needed Israel to understand that some things could not be negotiated. He had eternal standards that always were true. He showed this principle by using the plumb line. This was a cord with a weight that was used to keep a wall perfectly perpendicular.

Like the Ostrich

“Even jackals offer the breast, they nurse their young; but the daughter of my people has become cruel like ostriches in the wilderness.” Lamentations 4:3

The Bible uses the ostrich as a model for resourcefulness. Although they cannot fly, these creatures have other traits that more than make up for this apparent deficiency.

The largest of birds, ostriches are designed for maximum efficiency. While other birds have three or four toes, ostriches have only two toes on each foot. This enables them to run with great speed, and outrun most attackers. They also kick with deadly impact. Their wings act as a kind of rudder, aiding in their running abilities.

The ostrich also provides an example of cruelty. The Bible describes how they treat their young cruelly, as if they were not their own. Unconcerned, they abandon their eggs in the ground, and forget “that a foot may crush them, or that a wild beast may trample them” (Job 39:13-18).

As a result, the ostrich is an example of being self-centered. Using resources for personal advantages, without regard for the impact on others.

God used the ostrich to describe the attitude of His people. They might have thought of themselves as being as resourceful as the ostrich. But God felt that they, like the ostrich, were self-centered. They focused on short-term gains. Things that would provide immediate satisfaction and address their immediate needs. But they did not consider the impact on others. They even were willing to be cruel.

How easily we, too, can be like the ostrich. This is why we need to allow God to examine our lives. To seek His perspective. To be careful not just to think about ourselves but seek to serve others. To be filled with His Spirit. Motivated by love, to have a passion for souls. To realize that God has blessed us that we might be a blessing to others

[10/20/16]   First-Hand Experience
Midnight Meditation-Inspiration Ministries

"We have heard with our ears, our fathers have told us the work that You did in their days ... For by their own sword they did not possess the land, and their own arm did not save them, but Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your presence."
Psalm 44:1-3 NASB

The psalmist knew that his people needed God's help to be victorious: It was only through His name that they could "trample down those who rise up against us." They could not trust in themselves or their own strength or resources; God alone could help them.
Yet the psalmist still felt that something was lacking: They knew these things but needed a first-hand experience of God's power in their lives.
It was important to know what God had done in the lives of other people, in their time and throughout history. But his needs could not be met from a history book or second-hand reports. These accounts could provide encouragement, but he still needed to experience God's deliverance for himself.

This is true in our lives as well. We can learn from history, remembering that the Bible is filled with examples given for us (1 Corinthians 10:6). But we all need first-hand experiences. We all need to know these truths for ourselves.

[10/16/16]   Pastor's Corner;
Frm:inspiration ministries
"To You, O LORD, I call; my Rock, do not be deaf to me, for if You are silent to me, I will become like those who go down to the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to You for help, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary."
Psalm 28:1-2 NASB
In his mind, David could look back on his history and remember God's promise that He was with him. Yet, as he walked through the challenges of life, he still had moments of doubt. There even were times when it seemed that God was ignoring his prayers. That He was silent when David needed His help.

But rather than bury these feelings, he brought them to God: "Do not drag me away with the wicked and with those who work iniquity, who speak peace with their neighbors, while evil is in their hearts." He asked God to remember how his adversaries "do not regard the works of the LORD nor the deeds of His hands."

As he prayed and worked through these problems, David became confident that God heard him: "Blessed be the LORD, because He has heard the voice of my supplication." He had renewed knowledge that God was His strength and shield. Instead of giving in to discouragement, his heart was filled with praise. He could be joyful and sing songs of thanks.
