The Eternal Gospel

The story of Jesus and Nicodemus may be found through John 3:1-21. Nicodemus was said to be a ruler of the Jews. No, Nicodemus was neither a king or any kind of officer over the Jews but a teacher of Israel (John 3:10). Nicodemus was a Pharisee, therefore an expert of the Law. He wasContinue reading “The Eternal Gospel”

The Eschatological Divide

The Hastings’ Dictionary of the Bible defined “eschatology” as The department of theology which is concerned with the “last things,” that is, with the state of individuals after death, and with the course of human history when the present order of things has been brought to a close. It includes such matters as the consummationContinue reading “The Eschatological Divide”

Life Comes After Death

In the last decade or more, the call for discipleship has become the norm for many Christian congregations. This has become the trend in the hope of increasing their numbers, which they believe is the byproduct of successful discipleship program. The Bible spoke of the disciples of John the Baptist (Matthew 9:14), the disciples ofContinue reading “Life Comes After Death”

The Runaway Bridegroom

I went into a writing hiatus due to the ongoing festivity. Also it is a good time to take the backseat, relax, and recharge, Lord willing, for another year of blogging. The last blog I had written, “Scripture vs. Tradition,” got a good number of viewing and response. To think that I haven’t even sharedContinue reading “The Runaway Bridegroom”

Scripture vs. Tradition

It is traditionally believed that Jesus Christ’s Second Coming is yet to happen. Many claim the fulfillment of the Savior’s return is imminent – about to happen. Not surprising, for Jesus Christ did say, “I am coming soon,” four times actually in the Book of Revelation. See Revelation 3:11; “I am coming soon. Hold fastContinue reading “Scripture vs. Tradition”

The Dilemma of Tradition

Everyone is born into a tradition one way or the other. The practice of tradition was to keep the status quo. Paul, the apostle of Jesus Christ, spoke of tradition. See 2 Thessalonians 2:13-15. But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you asContinue reading “The Dilemma of Tradition”

The Irony of Disobedience

The Bible in Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 said, What exists now is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; there is nothing truly new on earth. Is there anything about which someone can say, “Look at this! It is new!”? It was already done long ago, before our time. ÜTruly thereContinue reading “The Irony of Disobedience”

Jonah to Nahum, A Story about God

Without a doubt, the story of Jonah is better known than that of Nahum, though both books spoke of God’s judgment against Assyria. In traditional Sunday school setting, perhaps the focus of Jonah’s story would often be that of his adventure – he was swallowed by the great fish for three days and three nightsContinue reading “Jonah to Nahum, A Story about God”

Death Is Not the End

One undeniable truth about life is that our physical existence has an end. Nobody should be surprised by it. It’s a known fact since the beginning of humanity. Perhaps we may say medical science has progress so much that the years of life have been prolonged. But I rather believe that medical science has helpedContinue reading “Death Is Not the End”

Psalms 34 & 35, the Messianic Psalm of Jesus Christ

John chapters 13-17 covers the story of Jesus Christ with His disciples. The story begins with Jesus and His disciples taking the Passover Meal, so it’s the 14th of Nissan – the beginning of the Jewish Spring Festival. The Jewish day begins at sundown (6pm) to sundown (6pm) – the following day to us. ItContinue reading “Psalms 34 & 35, the Messianic Psalm of Jesus Christ”
