God’s Word Proves Faith in Christ Versus Bible Ignorance

God's Word proves faith christ

God’s Word proves that real faith in Christ only happens after a hugging conviction of the Bible’s truthfulness and dependability. Wrote the apostle Paul that “faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.” (Rom. 10:17)

Where is the Arrogance About Life When God Owns Everything?

At the prime of his life, age 36, a friend of mine died of heart attack. Very healthy and robust, but his heart failed him one day during a party. Yes, the first symptom of a heart attack is death, the number one killer disease. Everyone attending the party was shocked, couldn’t accept seeing a healthy young man killed by a cardiac failure. From such episode of life, we saw how God owns everything. At His command, we may live or die. For in “his hand,” stated Job 12:10, “is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.”

Facing Trials in the Power of Abraham’s Faith

We are facing trials every once in a while as part of our unsinkable imperfections in this life. Earth is not the dreamland; suicide, therefore, is abnormal and committed by those experiencing mental illness known as depression.

Facing trials head-on, like struggling with cancer or kidney disorder, is the only rational option available to each one of us. But we can only resist the fear associated with any form of adversity by faith in the promises of God.

God’s Way Leads Us to the Right and Safe Path

God’s way leads us to the right and safe path. Our life, being God-given, must always string along the right route for it was not designed for cut and try or hit and miss existence.

Understanding Physical Death and the Life Beyond

A few months after her public announcement of her illness, Senator Miriam Santiago of the Philippines, said: “I licked cancer in three months.” She ran for president in May 2016 election and less that five months after, she died. Death is a cruel master. He has the power to kill a janitor or a senator. Understanding physical death from the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Holy Scriptures is, therefore, second to none in significance.

From the biblical perspective, the Filipino people, just like the Syrians, the Americans, or the Chinese, are experiencing today a sense of a political climate that is primarily influenced by what the Bible calls as the “powers. . .of this darkness.” (Eph. 6:12 NASB) But how do we know that the forces of this darkness are now in perfect control of the Filipino nation?
