Christianity 101 (From the story of Othniel)

Had Bible study last night. We studied Judges 3:1-11. Othniel, son of Caleb’s younger brother, was sent by the LORD to rescue Israel but ONLY after they had cried out to Him. So Israel experienced rest for forty years under the guidance of Othniel, the first Judge sent by the LORD. Christians, likewise chosen byContinue reading “Christianity 101 (From the story of Othniel)”

God Is Above All Circumstances

Our recent circumstances may not look good – high inflation, high peso-dollar exchange rate, high fuel cost, high borrowing rates. All these and many others are contributing factors to low purchasing power, scarce job opportunities, limited business expansion, activities and etc. Without a doubt, no one is spared. Everyone is affected by the current financialContinue reading “God Is Above All Circumstances”

Dissecting Jeremiah 29:11

The LORD of host, the God of Israel said in Scripture: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope,” Jeremiah 29:11. I recall this was the exact passage assigned to me to exegete in one ofContinue reading “Dissecting Jeremiah 29:11”

Truth Matters

That is the declaration of Jesus Christ about Himself and His Word, see John 14:6. “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’” In Hebrews 9:28, the Bible said: “So also the Messiah (Jesus Christ), having been offered once toContinue reading “Truth Matters”

Look Up, Not Down

Sometimes even Christians feel and look defeated. If so, read Psalm 37. The first two verses said, “Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers. For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb.” Then in verses 7-9, the Psalmist continued, “Be still before the LORD andContinue reading “Look Up, Not Down”

Good News or Fake News?

It has been more than a month since we were hit by Typhoon Rai. Practically all our basic utilities were rendered unavailable. No power, no water and no internet. Both power and water are now back in our area, but a lot of areas remain powerless and have no water. Until now, our internet remainsContinue reading “Good News or Fake News?”

End Times Brouhaha

This morning I saw on my Facebook a website entitled “The Endtimes Insider”; well, I didn’t even bother to read. Why? ‘Cause the Bible never spoke of the END TIMES but the TIME OF THE END. Daniel 12:4 “But you, Daniel, SHUT UP THE WORDS AND SEAL THE BOOK, UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END.Continue reading “End Times Brouhaha”

Parousia Myths

Despite clear utterance from the Lord Jesus Christ that His return or parousia would be during the lifetime of the apostles, it has been rejected and denied by the futurists – actually, that includes majority of professing Christians. See my blog “Confused Christianity” on Jesus’ assurance concerning His return. One of the most often usedContinue reading “Parousia Myths”

Hallucinations of a Rapture

One of the major doctrines of the futurist camp has to do with the belief of a rapture. Futurists are those who supposed the Return of Jesus Christ is yet to happen. See my blog “Confused Christianity” for the futurist perspective. Again, as I have said in my previous blog (Delusions of Rebuilding the Temple)Continue reading “Hallucinations of a Rapture”
