On Angels and Demons

New Things To Us

fearof

The world has instilled fear and gave a boxed explanation for each one. In truth, things are not as obvious to the naked eye. However, there are those who, after receiving Jesus Christ and accepting Him in his life, and making Jesus as King and Sovereign Lord, have received the Holy Spirit – and the Holy Spirit gifted with the eyes to see the Spirit realm. Such people can see anything and everything spiritual. This would include the following, but may or may not be limited at all:

  • angels
  • demons and evil spirits
  • works of the demons
  • movement of demons and evil spirits
  • weapons of the warrior angels
  • what they are wearing
  • the color of what they are wearing
  • the Lord of all!
  • God’s mighty hand
  • God’s throne
  • paradise
  • heaven’s gate
  • golden stairs, golden lampstand, golden cup, golden book, golden pen
  • silver things – swords, shields, etc.
  • waters – all forms
  • other many things…
    • people
    • their location
    • what is happening to them
    • attacks on them
    • spirits around them
    • disgusting faces of the evil spirits
    • horrible sight of the demons
    • witches and their doings

Now let us explore this, and clarify things:

  1. You are unbeliever like me before. Sinner. Disobedient. Unforgiving.
  2. You encountered the Lord – you received Him and make Him King and Savior!
  3. You got saved. You were given more knowledge – to know what is right and wrong
  4. You desired to know the Lord more, and in the process He revealed the Father – by the power of the Holy Spirit. More likely, you became prayerful, and a reader of His Word – the Bible.
  5. The Holy Spirit enabled you to change, and be holy and righteous – to be able to enter the Lord’s presence. More likely, you were delivered from filth and you repented of your sins.
  6. The Holy Spirit enabled you by giving you a gift. And there are many gifts.
  7. You received the ability to see the Spirit realm.

Now that you are a believer who received the Holy Spirit, you are now empowered.

Mark 16:17 New Living Translation
These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.

Believers of Jesus Christ. Can speak tongues (an oxymoron). It’s actually a spiritual thing – speaking something no one can understood except the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the living God – our Sovereign Lord. If the few words before this sentence doesn’t make any sense to you, this writing is not for you. Note that you can only cast out demons in the name of our Lord Jesus – no other name is given.

Bear with me. Know the following scriptures, for your own sake. :

Acts 4:12 New Living Translation
There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”

1 Timothy 2:5 New Living Translation
For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity–the man Christ Jesus.

1 Corinthians 8:6 New Living Translation
But we know that there is only one God, the Father, who created everything, and we live for him. And there is only one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom God made everything and through whom we have been given life.

Matthew 11:27 New Living Translation
“My Father has entrusted everything to me. No one truly knows the Son except the Father, and no one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”

Matthew 28:18-19 New Living Translation
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Mark 16:15-16 New Living Translation
And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.”

Ok. Let’s munch on this:

  1. One Savior
  2. One God, and One Mediator
  3. One Lord
  4. One Lord with all the authority in heaven and on earth
  5. One Lord who instructs all to :
    1. Make disciples of all nations
    2. Baptize the disciples
  6. One Lord who ordered to preach the good news around the world

Now, we are an empowered believer of Christ Jesus – a disciple baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

What happens now?

Our lives change. We are living daily for Christ. We are in constant fellowship with the Holy Spirit – the mighty Spirit of the living God, our Sovereign Lord! Going back – the Holy Spirit gave us gift to enable us to do things – for the glory of God!

Acts 1:8 New Living Translation
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere–in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

The tongues is a very powerful gift. And there are many gifts. Prophesying is another one.

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.

gifts

Luke 11:13 New Living Translation
So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him.”

Now this is worth noting. Ask for the Holy Spirit and our heavenly Father will give. But we are past that. We are already empowered believer (Christian) of Christ – able to do things by God’s grace.

gods-children

Romans 8:15 Berean Study Bible
For you did not receive a spirit of slavery that returns you to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

And yes, to our great joy, we are adopted sons of God! We can always call to our Father any given time. He always watch us. He never leaves us. He protects and shields us from the enemy – and there are many!

How do we know we are God’s children?

Romans 8:16 New Living Translation
For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.

Beware of worshipping the angels. Only God is to be worshipped!

Jesus replied, “The Scriptures say, ‘You must worship the LORD your God and serve only him.’

Colossians 2:17 New Living Translation
For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ himself is that reality. Don’t let anyone condemn you by insisting on pious self-denial or the worship of angels, saying they have had visions about these things. Their sinful minds have made them proud, and they are not connected to Christ, the head of the body. For he holds the whole body together with its joints and ligaments, and it grows as God nourishes it.

We are already in the last days. Expect the unexpected! The knowledge of God increases! He reveals new things about Him and His power. We ought to seek Him more now for His revelations. He alone can enable us to endure. He alone can rescue us in the coming tempest – for He alone knows everything.

Acts 2:17 Berean Study Bible
In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people; your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on My servants, both men and women, I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and clouds of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.

All glory to God, our loving Father – our Abba Father!

OTHER IMPORTANT SCRIPTURES:

Hebrews 2:1-4 New Living Translation
So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. For the message God delivered through angels has always stood firm, and every violation of the law and every act of disobedience was punished. So what makes us think we can escape if we ignore this great salvation that was first announced by the Lord Jesus himself and then delivered to us by those who heard him speak? And God confirmed the message by giving signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit whenever he chose.

Romans 12:6 New Living Translation
In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you.

1 Corinthians 10:18-21 New Living Translation
Think about the people of Israel. Weren’t they united by eating the sacrifices at the altar? What am I trying to say? Am I saying that food offered to idols has some significance, or that idols are real gods? No, not at all. I am saying that these sacrifices are offered to demons, not to God. And I don’t want you to participate with demons. You cannot drink from the cup of the Lord and from the cup of demons, too. You cannot eat at the Lord’s Table and at the table of demons, too.

2 Corinthians 6:15-18 New Living Translation
What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said: “I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the LORD. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you. And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty.”

Loved and Forgiven

Note: NLT = New Living Translation is used on all the scriptures unless otherwise indicated.

God loved us first…then He forgave our sins to bring us back to Him through His only Son, our Lord Jesus!

Such an amazing grace. Even when we are sinners, Christ died for us!

From Sinner to Saved to Changed to Delivered to adopted Son of God!

Sinners Saved

Romans 5:8 New Living Translation
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

1 John 4:9-10 New Living Translation
God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love–not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.

We are doomed to death but He saved us. We are condemned from the start. But thank God! By the hearing of His message, the Word, by moving us to accepting His Son, we are redeemed!

Romans 10:17 New Living Translation
So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.

Mark 16:16 New Living Translation
Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned.

Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

No repentance, No turning to God, No baptism, No forgiveness of sin = No gifts from the Holy Spirit.

Acts 16:31 New Living Translation
They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.”

Those who obey God’s commandments remain in fellowship with him, and he with them. And we know he lives in us because the Spirit he gave us lives in us.

1 John 4:15-21 New Living Translation
All who confess that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God. We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world. Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love. We love each other because he loved us first. If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is a liar; for if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see? And he has given us this command: Those who love God must also love their Christian brothers and sisters.

1 John 5:11 New Living Translation
And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life. I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.

Towards the Family

Ephesians 5:25-28 New Living Translation
For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself.

1 Peter 3:7 New Living Translation
In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.

And have you forgotten the encouraging words God spoke to you as his children? He said, “My child, don’t make light of the LORD’s discipline, and don’t give up when he corrects you. For the LORD disciplines those he loves, and he punishes each one he accepts as his child.”

No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening–it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.

Everything We Have is a Gift

The Love of the Father

This is an entirely big topic to talk about. However, you may not experience or comprehend His love unless you open your mind and heart, and your whole being to Him, and let the Holy Spirit of the living God fill you, and the Lord Jesus to reign in every aspect of your life.

John 14:23 New Living Translation
Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.

John 15:9-13 New Living Translation
“I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

John 16:26-27 New Living Translation
Then you will ask in my name. I’m not saying I will ask the Father on your behalf, for the Father himself loves you dearly because you love me and believe that I came from God.

Romans 5:5 New Living Translation
And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

2 Thessalonians 2:13 New Living Translation
As for us, we can’t help but thank God for you, dear brothers and sisters loved by the Lord. We are always thankful that God chose you to be among the first to experience salvation–a salvation that came through the Spirit who makes you holy and through your belief in the truth.

warning

Romans 12:3 New Living Translation
Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.

Romans 1:21 New Living Translation
Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused.

Hebrews 6:4 New Living Translation
For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened–those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come–and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding him up to public shame.

2 Peter 2:20-21 New Living Translation
And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before. It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life.

Luke 11:26 New Living Translation
Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there. And so that person is worse off than before.”

Now get to your feet! For I have appeared to you to appoint you as my servant and witness. You are to tell the world what you have seen and what I will show you in the future. And I will rescue you from both your own people and the Gentiles.

The 1st Shabbat Night of 2017

We are still in awe of the last Shabbat of 2016. It was full of new experiences to the majority of the members of CLSF Paco House of Prayer. See the old post here.

This night is expected to be exciting.

Ate Yollie wrote something for reading. It was given to her by Ate Eda.

“Äko may sakit ang pakiramdam ko, attack lang ng enemy…pero alam ko na makakareceive ako ng healing as we do our shabbat night”

“Ito yung purpose natin bakit tayo nagsha-shabbat”

After the Tzedakah, an opening prayer by Ate Yollie:

‘Lord, we thank you. We thank you so much as we start this year 2017. Salamat Panginoon na we can celebrate shabbat. We honor you at this time, father God. We thank you for the benefits of shabbat. We thank you na hindi lamang nare-recharge ang aming spiritual batteries but also you strengthen our divine connection with you. And thank you for that benefit that we will have a taste of paradise as we do this shabbat this day. We welcome you, Holy Spirit. Be the one who direct and inspire us tonight…even the songs that we will sing kayo po ang magbibigay sa amin ng direction. And pati po yung aming sharing time kayo po ang magdirect nito, Holy Spirit. We give this time unto you, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.”

Kuya Eli and Ate Au lead the Shabbat Prayers.

Ate Yollie: “Lord, we thank you this offerings. Let this be the fund for the needs of the center….kayo po ang magmultiply ng blessing sa lahat…in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.”

Ate Yollie while blessing the Children: “…lalong-lalo na po ang malalim na relasyon nila sa inyo, lalo nyo pa pong palalimin, iinspire, ienergize na gawin po ang lahat ng mga nararapat upang mas makilala po nila kayo. Lord, we just speak blessing Lord, dito po sa last year ng kanilang semester. We pray Lord, that you will bless them sa kanilang thesis, bigyan po sila ng guidance, and that you will be glorified in each one of them. We give you back all the glory in Jesus’name.”

Proverbs 31:10 declared by the students for the wives and their mothers.

Psalm 128 was declared to the Husbands and Fathers – including spiritual fathers.

Ate Yollie: “Sa monday merong Nazareno. Sabi may threat. Pagpray natin kasi ang daming tao nyan. Yung possibility na may mangyari. Kaya Lord, kaya sabi ‘may you see manila prosper, and be kept safe, especially on Monday – the day po ng Nazareno. Hindi lang sila maawaken spiritually, but also keep them safe. At tsaka wala pong mangyaring terrorists attack. Lord, we charge your angels. Yan ang pinakamahalaga. Open their eyes and spiritual understanding, to the truth na mali ang kanilang ginagawa at kailangang madirect….In Jesus’name we pray. Amen.”

We then proceeded to singing of songs -in worship:

We do not have a guitar this day.

These are the numerous songs we sung:

  1. Times of refreshing Here in your presence 🎵 No greater blessing Than being with you 🎵 My soul is restored 🎵 My mind is renewed 🎵 There’s no greater joy, Lord 🎵 Than being with you – Lead by Ate Au. She just prayed for the group afterwards.
  2. 🎶 You are beautiful beyond description, Too marvelous for words 🎵 Too wonderful for comprehension..- Started by Ate Eda
  3. I’ll stand with arms high and heart abandoned 🎵 In awe of the one who gave it all .🎵 I’ll stand, my soul, Lord to you surrendered all I am is yours…🎶
  4. 🎵 I love you, Lord 🎵 And I lift my voice 🎵 To worship you, O my soul rejoice. 🎵 Take joy my King 🎵 In what you hear 🎵 May it be a sweet, sweet sound in your ear. 🎶
  5. Come Holy Spirit, fall on my now 🎵 I need your anointing 🎵 come in your power 🎵 I love you, Holy Spirit, you’re captivating my soul 🎵 and everyday I grow to love you more 🎵🎵 I’m reaching for your heart 🎵 You hold my life in your hands 🎵 drawing me closer to you 🎵 I feel your power renewed 🎵 Nothing compares to this place 🎵 Where i can see you face to face 🎵 I worship you in spirit and in truth…- Lead by Elijah
  6. Holy Spirit you are welcome here 🎵 Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere 🎵 Your glory God is what our hearts long for 🎵 To be overcome by your presence, Lord 🎶 – Lead by Ate Cora
  7. The more I seek you 🎵 The more I find you 🎶 The more I find you 🎵 The more I love you 🎶 I wanna sit at your feet 🎵 Drink from the cup in your hand 🎵 Lay back against you and breathe 🎵 Feel your heartbeat 🎵 This love is so deep 🎵 It’s more than i can stand 🎵 I melt in your peace 🎵 It’s overwhelming 🎶 – Lead by Khaye Anne
  8. 🎵 All I want is just to know your heart and would you keep me here until were one…🎶
  9. My soul sings 🎵 My soul sings 🎵 My soul sings 🎵 How I love you 🎶

Ate Myles prayed a short prayer, then we greeted each other:

” God loves you! May the peace of God be with you always! Shabbat Shalom!” 

What happened next is an anointing. We all lined-up, as instructed by the Holy Spirit. Elders first. Diego was first among the students and Cyril was last.

Ate Myles prayed for Ate Yollie and Kuya Joe:

” Lord, we release your blessing. Let there be…wisdom, double-portion of anointing. Let there be rejoicing in their spirit, and may they see the harvest, the fruit of their hands. So Lord, continually bless them O God, in all the things that they need physically, spiritually O Father. Thank you so much that you have given us leaders O God. Lord, thank you for Kuya Joe. for Ate Yollie, even for TJ and Joshua and Elijah. Thank you, Lord for this family. Lord, embrace them O God with a full blast of blessing that is coming from your throne o Father. Thank you, in Jesus’ name. Amen!” 

Ate Yollie: One last song of rejoicing sa Lord!

Ate Au lead: Shout to the Lord all the earth let us sing 🎵 Power and majesty praise to the King! 🎵 Mountains bow down and the sea will roar at the sound of your name. 🎵 I sing for joy at the work of your hand 🎵 Forever, I love you! Forever I’ll stand🎵 Nothing conpares to the promise I have in you 🎶

Ate Myles prayed: “Lord, we seal all the prayers, and all pronounced blessings, the giftings, the promises you have given to each one of us. Let it not be taken by the enemy but by the blood of Jesus, seal it O Father. Father, we rejoice in your goodness, we claim all of this, claim it O God, and it will come to pass. I even pray Lord, dun sa food na kakainin. Maging strength po ito ng katawan namin, at pagpalain mo po ng todo todo ang nagprepare nito. We give you glory. We give you praise, O God. Thank you for your presence. In Jesus’ name, Amen”

We then partake of the meal. Ate Yollie ordered a pizza. I did prepare a rice meal.

Sharing started as soon as everyone is settled.

I started the sharing, followed by Diego. He mentioned John 15 about bearing fruit – the fruits of the Holy Spirit. My wife, for the first time, sang songs for the glory of the Lord! Scripture Song Isaiah 43:1-3. She also mentioned Luke 13 about a woman who was set free from her infirmity. Diego mentioned Galatians 5:22. Ate Au shared the healing on her leg pain. Jthan mentioned something about new things – about looking forward to every shabbat now. Ate Yollie mentioned something about the Taste of Paradise. I related how I saw everybody looked like a candle with the flame for our head. Ate Cora shared something about Cyril’s gift, a small harp! Ate Yollie talked about the youth being unleashed during the last CLSF Worker’s Camp. Diane shared a verse from her quiet time: 1 John 3:10 and John 1:39. Kim shared about his struggle on his quiet time. He also said that we Should establish ourselves in the Word of the Lord. Kuya Joe closed the shabbat with a prayer.

All glory to God, the Almighty!

Shabbat Night To Remember

It was an extraordinary Friday night.

I would normally get home past 6:30pm coming from work at 5:00pm. This night, I am already home more than 10 minutes before 6:00pm. The road seemed to open up. I already knew the direction of this night since morning. I have a very nice expectation. But then the Lord’s ways is very much above our ways. I had to make sure the floor is very clean. I had to send an instruction to leave the shoes near the door.

By past 7:00pm, the Shabbat Dinner meal started. It’s a series of spoken prayers and blessings to all present. I made an entry during the blessings of the children. What we have in this group are spiritual children of the Leaders.

The Lord gave His direction. His very own Word.

Numbers 11:23 New American Standard 1977

And the LORD said to Moses, “Is the LORD’S power limited? Now you shall see whether My word will come true for you or not.”

The version I used is worded as follows: The Living Bible

“When did I become weak?”

I asked the group as the Lord would. The Lord is asking them: “Meron bang mahirap sa akin? Mayroon ba akong hindi magagawa?

After these very powerful words from the Lord, Ate Yollie told a story about Father’s love…and then an outpouring of God’s love for each other as we greet ‘Shabbat Shalom – may the peace of God be with you always’.

It was a totally different greeting of peace…

Then, the flow moved to worship, instead of the meal.

(one of the few chances I was lead to take a picture)

The given song was from Ate Yollie. O Come All Ye Faithful. Form there, we flowed…sensitive to what the Holy Spirit is guiding us to sing.

There was even some pure revelation on the meaning of the words of a song.

Then, the Lord’s presence engulfed us. The mighty move of God is very much apparent. It was a free-flowing worship to our God. And the Lord’s glory manifests…

I saw the covering wall of fire interconnecting each person in the room – and a candle-like fire on each head. We were simply flowing in the worship of our God. Freely expressing our love to Him who graced us with His Holy presence.

  • 2 Corinthians 3:17 New Living Translation
    For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

It was really an extraordinary Friday. We normally end a Shabbat Dinner – including the worship – in an hour or even less. But this one, took a very special long time. Not that it concerns us. What is really more important is the soaking in the Lord’s presence. We ended the worship a few minutes before 9:30pm and the meal after at 10:30pm. There was an spontaneous sharing of experiences. God be glorified!

  • Psalm 89:15 New Living Translation
    Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of your presence, LORD.

Indeed, these people present were called – and responded to the call.

  • Bernard shared that we are reminded to pray…pray…pray. He related the experience they had on the 1st Tindig.Na ‘panghawakan nyo yung experience nyo sa GIA
  • I followed. I have to tell them what I saw that they may be edified. We were all covered in huge blinding light. Surrounding all of us, is a wall of fire – inter-connecting on each head, and showing a candle-like fire on each head. It was an awesome sight. It was a glorious presence. The King of glory entered and we were all covered in His glory.
  • My wife Cora shared a touching story from a book.That God is a sovereign Lord…He is in control. She also saw Arrows. Nagbabagang arrows. She also told the group ‘na.dedelight ang Lord sa pagworship nyo
  • Khaye Anne started. She related how the Word of Number 11:23 made an impact to her. She also shared about the first time she felt ‘nawala kayong lahat’. Her message was to “Fix our eyes on the Lord”...that whatever situation we are to face we are untouchable in the presence of God.She reference Exodus 13:25
  • Kim, for the first time, had a vision. 2 visions! He said that “we are really in the process” referring to their group. “Continue what we have started.” He also referenced 2 Tim 2:21
  • I interjected: Hindi pare-pareho ang gifts ni Lord sa bawat tao.
  • Kuya Eli: We are one body of many parts. Di ka dapat maintimidate. We are created in His image. Pursue natin ang gifts sa atin.
  • I interjected: God is a God of Order. Our worship – we are a sweet smelling aroma.Nilalanghap nya ang aroma na ito ng worship. The Bible is the Word, and the Word is God. See John 1:1
  • Ate Yollie: Re the vision that Ate Cora saw – a jar of water being poured on us. “Love is like a liquid that is being poured on us on our head…and that love is melting everything inside us“.
  • Ate Cora: A broken spirit, and a contrite heart, you will not despise.”Minsan down ka, open mo heart mo kay Lord. Na anuman ang every black or dark spot sa heart mo, tunawin ito. The Lord is good. He respond kung ano man ang situation mo.”
  • Ate Yollie: With regards sa gift, alam mo bang di ako nakakakita ng vision? impression lang tsaka nakakarinig. Pero walang vision. Bihirang bihira. Yang gifts, depende yan sa Lord. Kung ano binigay sayo, dun ka mag.excel. It will not make you a less of a Christian kung di ka nakakakita o di ka nakakarinig.
  • Kuya Eli mentioned 1 Corinthians 13.
  • Ate Yollie: “Ang gifts magpupush yan ng yabang sayo kung di mo sasabayan ng character development – dun papasok ang love na nadedevelop sayo.” Kailangan balanse ka ng love at tsaka ng gifts.
  • Richard shared being taken to outer space. He even saw the stars. But the message to him is that his worries are but specks of dust compared to God’s plan in his life. He also saw the group in the throne-room. He saw the light in the hearts of each one. That the light glows more as the worship continue. He was reminded to see all that happened in his life – all that was given by God as a blessing to him.
  • Elijah felt the heat of the fire. He shared Romans 8:1 as a reference when it comes to chains or strongholds that binds us. “Re unholy alliances – cut it off
  • Ate Yollie interjected: wag magpapa-late sa worship
  • Diego shared what he felt. He said that the warmth or the heat from the wall of fire is from the Lord’s embrace. When the Lord came, He embraced each of those present during worship. “Isa-isang binigay para mabuo ang wall of fire”. “He released the glory to all of us. As he released His glory, yung spirit of wickedness, hardness of heart, dark clouds, evil spirit – natunaw.” He also mentioned how the words of Numbers 11:23 reminded him na walang impossible sa Lord. “Hindi dapat ma.break itong bond na ito kasi yung nabuo na wall dapat magsamasama pa rin…sa lahat ng na.eencounter natin. One thing, we should not take this for granted – itong annointing of love. Dapat bukas ganun pa din ang level ng love natin”. Stay on the path of light.
  • Ate Yollie: Love casts out all fear. Love covers a multitude of sins!
  • Jthan shared about the heat. ” mainit, promise!” He wanted to join the group on the floor (when everybody kneeled and prostrated) but he can’t jut stop playing the guitar. But when he did let go of the guitar – the worship moved to an even higher worship – in spirit. He shared how they as a group, leveled-up the way they worship. 
  • Kuya Eli: Keep the fire burning.
  • Bernard: Sobrang sarap sa presence ng Lord
  • Glyzel: During the worship song ‘You are Worthy of it all’ – She felt ‘na ako ang gagamitin nyang instrument para ma.save buong family ko’
  • Cecille: “Ang blessed ng batch namin – naging part kami ng Tindig.Umabot ako sa part na ito dahil sa pagsave sa akin ni Lord” Anywhere pala, pwede mangyari ang open-heaven.
  • Justine:”Buong worship, my heart was filled with an attitude of gratitude.” He related how great our God is for using Ate Au. “God has been so good to me that He surrounds me with His love
  • Psalm 16:11 TEV. You will show me the path that leads to life; your presence fills me with joy and brings me pleasure forever.
  • Psalm 90:8 TEV. You place our sins before you, our secret sins where you can see them.
  •  Acts 2:28 TEV. You have shown me the paths that lead to life, and your presence will fill me with joy.

The sharing was so freely moving that after each sharing, the elders would give some words. This is important for better understanding. This is where the experience of the elders come handy. This is where the new ones learn something new!

A few days after, my wife Cora confirmed the exact look of the wall of fire, the candle-like fire on each head, and the position of the people present. Wow! How wonderful and awesome is our God? This is a mighty work of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit allowed my wife to see exactly what I saw.

I closed  the shabbat with a few words and a prayer.

Dinner Meal is well deserved at this time of the night – after a couple of hours in the presence of the living God.

  • Galatians 5:13 New Living Translation
    For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.

Indeed, all glory to God who loves us all with a great love! There is none like the Lord in all the earth. He is God. He is Lord. Let us allow Him to rule and reign in our hearts, our mind, and our lives.
