I am a Filipino, Thank GOD!

Philippines is a country known for many things. Filipinos are known to be one of the hardworking, hospitable races in many places.

Philippines is a country that is rich in natural resources and has many beautiful places and tourist spots.

Being a Filipino, there are many reasons to be proud of. But personally, I only have one, and one reason only to be proud about being a Filipino.

With the mercy and love from GOD, I am glad that I have seen the day that I discovered Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) the longest running religious program on Philippine tv.

Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) is not a religion but a religious program on tv and on radio. It is being hosted by Bro. Eli Soriano.

Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) is now on its 34th year and still counting with GOD’s help.

On the very first day, for the very first time that I watched Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) I started knowing the pure gospel of the LORD that eventually led to my decision to change join the true Church written in the Bible.

I am only proud to be a Filipino only because of my faith, and my faith only. I am a proud Member of the Church of GOD International.

Bro. Eli Soriano is a Filipino and I am a Filipino and for that, I praise and thank GOD eternally.

To GOD be the glory!

Life is hard, but we have GOD

Believing and trusting the LORD is beneficial to one soul, body and mind. Whatever happens, never, ever doubt the love and care that GOD has for you, you just need to believe and have faith.

Remember, GOD is not stone hearted to let you suffer in times that you need HIS help. GOD is not forgetful to forget the good things that you are doing with HIS help and will. GOD is graceful to shower you with gifts and blessings, more than you can ask for.

We may not completely understand the things that are happening to us, but regardless, you should have faith and trust in GOD that everything will fall into place.

That all sadness would turn into joy. All tears will be wept away and eventually there will be no more. That sacrifices and hardships will all be gone.

And most importantly, the longing and wishing to see the glorious moment to finally meet the Creator will soon be over.

Believe, believe just believe. Trust in GOD.

Great Reason To Be Awaken

There was this Sunday night on September 21, when I was at my room “chillaxing”, I felt sleepy and eventually fell asleep. I woke up suddenly, at around 1:00 in the morning. I woke up from a terrible and scary nightmare, almost unable to move my body then I tried to sleep again. I have tried at least twice or thrice to go back to sleep but ended up trying to awake myself again because every time I try to go back to sleep the nightmare continues, like a movie when you pause then play.

I have read some about the thing that they call night terror. I think that a little of it i experienced that Sunday night. I forced myself to move my entire body.

When I regained my consciousness, I remembered that, first, I have not yet prayed that night and, a debate is happening that night that I would not want to miss.

So I opened my laptop and tuned in to O Caminho Antigo Youtube channel of the Members Church of God International (MCGI) to watch the debate online, live!

The debate happened was between Bro. Eli Soriano and Pastor Rubens Sodré. The debate was peaceful and exciting. In the end, and many truths were prevailed.

I am so happy that I had terrible nightmare that moment, maybe it is a way to awake me and enable to watch the debate and yes, I was able to pray before I went to sleep again.

Indeed, another victorious debate for Bro. Eli Soriano in the name of truth and wisdom.

To GOD be the Glory!

Corruption in News Media and the Charge of Power-grab

Less Traveled Road

By Jane Abao

Manila, Philippines (9/24/2014) – Arrogance is defined in the dictionary as revealing an exaggerated sense of one’s own importance. It can also mean displaying a sense of overbearing self-worth or ability. When media does this or when one ascribes to media such power or importance, then its performance of its supposed social function of being watchdog is being judged amiss. Indeed, is media incorruptible?

The Column

On September 9, 2014, an Efren N. Padilla wrote an opinion blog titled, “VP Jejomar Binay and the third commandment.” He wrote this in an online site, gmanetwork.com

The columnist began with a public pet peeve: that of Binay being of ill repute. Vice President Jejomar Binay was said to deny the testimony of his former vice mayor in Makati at a Senate blue ribbon committee investigation – that he received kickbacks from the construction of the Makati City Hall’s overpriced P2.3-billion building.  He swore…

Typhoon Yolanda Survivor of Last Year, a Filipino CPA Examination Topnotcher Today

Out of 5,540 CPA hopefuls who took the CPA Licensure Examinations only 1, 107 made it and of course, 1 has emerged on the top place.

Rommel Rhino Edusma, 25, a graduate of Asian Development Foundation College has 94.7% rating placing him on the topnotch.

What is more interesting with this man is that, aside from him being able to ace the CPA examination, he has survived the wrath of nature as well. He is one of those who survived typhoon Yolanda or typhoon Haiyan which is one of the strongest typhoons ver recorded in the histyory of humankind.

Yes, the calamity that typhoon Yolanda may have brought and caused turmoil to the lives of the people of Tacloban, but many has also been enlightened on the realizations that after losing the things that we have and hold on to, there is hope.

So guess the saying There’s a rainbow after the rain is indeed true afterall.

Thanks to GOD Almighty!

#NotoSofitel and #BoycottSofitelPH Hashtags Dominate Twitter for Days

#NotoSofitel and #BoycottSofitelPH as you may have noticed, these two hashtags have been consistently at the top trending list in twitter.

Well, consider this a battle cry against discrimination. Here’s the story –

A Sofitel, one of the luxurious hotels in the Philippines have decided to remove UNTV channel on the list of existing TV channels available on their hotel where guests can view and enjoy its highly educational shows. While other channels, they did not delete.

Clearly, hotel Sofitel has singled out UNTV channel, as in, “out” literally.

Historically, UNTV has done nothing bad against the hotel and there is no valid reason for them to do such a thing.

As a result, the supporters of the UNTV, that is also known as the public service channel decided to unite to fight against discriminations. Any people should not be deprived of their freedom to watch and stay tune in any channels on TV and to watch what they want to watch.

A Typhoon That is O, So Strong

Last week, a strong typhoon hit our country. Of all the typhoons that came and left, this is one of the typhoons that brought massive destruction to our place.

Like a typhoon I normally encounter, it was raining at first. I thought that it would only be like one of the typhoons that we usually encounter. But no, I am wrong, very wrong.

I woke up in the morning, earlier than the usual. There was no longer supply of electricity at home and to other nearby places. I took a peek outside and the wind was strong very, very strong.

I came back in my room and the wind gets stronger and stronger. There was this time that I found myself unable to move because of the fear that I have during the strong blowing of the winds. When I hear steel roofs making some noise, I hope that it is not our house’s.

I also thought of the strongest storm that hit our country just last year, Yolanda with an international name, Haiyan. I thought of the place and the people that it struck. I somehow felt what they did during the typhoon.

Instead of me letting myself dwell in worries and fears during that time, I knelt down and prayed to GOD to keep us safe, and thank GOD that HE protected us and kept us safe during the entire ordeal.

The following day, when I traveled I saw many electric posts that have fallen down even some telecommunication posts. Many trees and plants have fallen on the ground and on the streets, even houses, devastated.

Recently, electricity has been restored in our place as well as communication and internet, well, surprisingly and thankfully considering the destructions after the typhoon.

I hope that things will soon get better to people who were greatly affected by the typhoon.

Yes, the typhoon has shaken many but not my faith.

Thanks and glory to the greatest and kindest GOD who never failed to protect and care for us always.
