When God orders, even the Devil obeys! - [ BRoME ]

"So is My word that goes out from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."  Isaiah 55:11 NIV Does the Devil obey God?  By his nature, the Devil is a rebel, the disobedient one.  But can He do the...

Giving is Living - Bro Terry J.

A Jewish leader asked Jesus,”good teacher, what must i do to receive eternal life?” “Why do you call me good?” Jesus asked him.”No one is good except god alone. You know the commandments:’do not commit adultery;do not commit murder;do not steal;do not accuse anyone falsely; respect your father...

Do Not Worry - Bro Terry J.

Then Jesus said to the disciples,"And so I tell you not to worry about the food you need to stay to alive or about the clothes you need for your body."  Luke 12:22     Each time I read this passage I get a great big whack in the back of my head, just like DiNozzo gets from Jethro...

Beloved, we are God's children now; what we shall be has not yet been revealed. We do know that when it is revealed  we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.  1 John 3:2 We are confused many times.  Confused about who we are. Confused about the people next to...

Prayer: It does work - Bro Terry J.

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed.  Mark 1-35   How many times have you heard your preacher tell you to pray? Plenty.  How many times do we say, 'Oh yeah! it might work for you but I'm...

There ain't no Commonwealth Bank in Heaven - Bro Terry J.

But in those days,after that suffering, the sun will be darkened,and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from heaven,and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.    Mark 13:24-25. My first thought after reading these passages was "Man, how many times...

Spilt Milk - [ BRoME ]

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. Psalm 27:14   No  crying over spilt milk. This thought evokes the Christian character of inner strength and of hope. This means being positive, enduring, and at the same...

We Need Each Other - Bro Terry J

They responded, “Let’s start rebuilding!” And they got ready to start the work. Nehemiah 2: 18   While I was reading about Nehemiah the other day I couldn’t help but think about the necessity to help one another in rebuilding our communities. When you ponder on Nehemiah you see that...

Perseverance in NZ Chapter - Bro Ed P.

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us—they help us learn to endure.  And endurance develops strength of character in us, and character strengthens our confident expectation of salvation.  And this expectation will not...

Beautiful in his time - [ BRoME ]

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men.  Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV What memory from childhood days that still pops its ugly head every now and then is that of a boy called Atong.  He was sometimes called mockingly as Atong Bulutong. He...

Fullness in Life - Bro Tom M.

  John 10:10  “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (NIV) Truly God wants us to have a happy, healthy, to live life to the fullness and abundance. But abundance does not only mean the material or financial things that we have. I believe that fullness in life...

Thank the Lord more often - Bro Terry J

When you pray, do not use a lot of meaningless words, as the pagans do, who think that their gods will hear them because their prayers are long. Do not be like them. your Father already knows what you need before you ask Him.  Math. 6 v.7-8. As I was reflecting on the above words, I was...

Iba yung power ng listening - Fr Larry Faraon

 Brothers and sisters, kita ninyo, that living in the spirit is a living of listening.  Pakikinig.  I prefer listening rather than reading.  Sa mga churches dito alam nyo naman, ang mga churches dito very modern. Sa Pilipinas din, may mga projector, yung mga first reading na...

One Little Candle - [ BRoME ]

Then God said, "Let there be light".  Gen 1:3 It is better to light just one little candle, Than to stumble in the dark! Better far that you light just one little candle, All you need’s a tiny spark! The song "One Little Candle" saw the light of day in 1952 before I was born.  I...
