A Happy life inside the Church now on its Silk Anniversary

It is exactly 3 days before my spiritual and I cannot be more happy,yey!

When I was in elementary, there are many things that I learned about religion because here in our country, there are subjects (even in college) that teach religion.

I became really interested on the things that my religious teachers are teaching me. I used to ace the examinations that we had during those days, and in college, I also become as industrious and attentive to the religion class as I used to be when I was in elementary. But the difference is, when I was in elementary I am attentive on the class because I want to absorb the lessons being taught to us and eventually, apply the leanings on my day to day living, on the other hand, mostly in college, I am very attentive on the religious class because I was scrutinizing the teachings and things that our teacher are teaching us. I then became a critic against the religious teachings that I used to love and respect.

It may seem that I turned atheist when I was in college, but no, it is otherwise instead.

When I was in highschool, I am fond of watching tv (since my interest in writing and reading have not yet emerged) from noon (after class) up until the wee hours of the night. As I was watching tv, I came across a religious tv program, Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) no matter how I try to remember when exactly I started watching it, I can’t all I know is that I became addicted to it I won’t last a day without watching it. Everyday, as I’m watching it, the more I learn about the truth in the Bible, I came to know GOD, Jesus Christ and the true Church of GOD, the real religion. Not only that, I came to know the things that I should be doing while living.

After graduating from highschool I stop going to church to hear mass and eventually, disregard the religious teachings that u have learned from my previous religion, entirely.

After first semester in college, during break I was baptized and accepted the absolute truth, that the Church of GOD in he Bible is “the” one and only true religion ever existed (and still existing).

October 26, 2001 to be exact. From that day on, I live and breathe the heavenly teachings that I have learned (and learning) inside the Church of GOD.

Life is not easy as a Christian. There are many tribulations and hardships it is because of GOD’s love and mercy that I am still inside the Church.

To GOD I owe all things that I have (and I don’t). Thanks to Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

and ultimately, of course …

Thanks and glory to GOD.

Heavenly guardians on earth

I grew up believing that there is GOD Almighty who created the heaven and the earth. I also believe in Jesus Christ as well as the existence of the Holy Spirit and angels.

Even though many people are skeptical about their existence, even though that I have never seen them yet with my eyes, I know deep inside my heart that they really exist. As a Christian, the basis of what I believe in is written on the Holy Scriptures.

 

There are many false preachers and leaders that spring up rapidly all over the place. Currently, a lot of religious hoax and lies can be read, seen and heard from the people who appointed themselves as pastors, leaders and evangelists. Luckily, there are real leaders and preachers who are really sent by GOD to the world. The Bible says about Paul and Timothy being the ministers of true Church of GOD.

In the our dispensation, there is Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon who are truly the men sent by GOD to administer the members of the Church of GOD International. Through the leadership of Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon, there are also people who help them to spread the words of GOD for it to be known to many people in many places across the globe.

In the false religions, they are called pastors, priest, etc. but in the true Church of GODthey are called workers. Inside the true Church of GODthey are simply addressed as brothers and sisters.

Through the leadership of Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon, they are also duty bound to look after the welfare of the members of theChurchofGOD. Some of them are professionals, some of them have attained high degree in academics and some of them do not have any educational achievements.  But regardless of their status, with GOD’s help they work to achieve their goals and to fulfill their noble duties that are given to them in accordance to GOD’s will.

Admittedly, sometimes some of them fall short on the expectations and they have shortcomings, sometimes they commit mistakes. However, they still deserve to be loved, respected, understood and treated accordingly. Bro. Eli taught us how they should be treated in accordance to the Bible. In 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13, it says;

12And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

13And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.

I am grateful to GOD that before, HE sent Jesus Christ on earth to preach the gospel and now, Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel in the midst of us. All glory and thanks are to GOD
