Nuggets – Confidence in Christ Alone

Confidence in Christ Alone
“But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.” (Philippians 3:7-8)

During the three verses prior to the text for today, Paul had listed some of the rather spectacular credits he had obtained “in the flesh” (Philippians 3:4). His family lineage and achievements were both professionally stellar and legally blameless. He had every right to be proud of himself.

Yet, in strong language, Paul values these personal achievements as the excrement of animals when he compares the gain of being given “the righteousness which is of God by faith” (Philippians 3:9). A vivid contrast indeed!

Jesus taught that if anyone would become His disciple, then he must “deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me” (Mark 8:34). Further, such a disciple must “lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s” (Mark 8:35). Owning the whole world was worthless if it meant that the price would cause one to “lose his own soul” (Mark 8:36). Hard bargains indeed!

Paul sought, as each of us should also, “the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus” (today’s verse). Invoking all of the triune Godhead, Paul begged for comprehension of the “love of Christ, which passeth knowledge,” so that he can be “filled with all the fulness of God” (Ephesians 3:18-19). Such knowledge brings “full assurance of understanding” (Colossians 2:2). That is a good return indeed!

“Wherefore beloved,” Peter said, “be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless” (2 Peter 3:14). HMM III

Life-Saving Transplant

heart-1133761_1920What comes to mind when you hear the term ‘heart condition’?

Most of us in the United States would probably think of some form of high blood pressure, blocked arteries or the need for by-pass surgeries that have become almost commonplace today.

But that’s not the case for our friend Chris. His heart was failing. I don’t know all the specifics of his particular ailment, but he’s struggled with it the entire time I’ve known him. But as you might expect, his condition had an extreme impact on his livelihood and lifestyle. He couldn’t work or exert himself and had to be hooked up to portable machines for constant monitoring. But all that changed just a couple weeks ago, when he got the call to let him know that a donor match had been located and was given instructions report to the hospital immediately for a heart transplant.

TT62: Hindi laging may Bagyo (Storms are not for Always)


Sunud-sunod ang pagpasok ng malalakas na bagyo ngayon sa ating bansa at kahit na hindi namin ito direktang nararanasan sa Metro Manila, alam kong may mga lugar na kung saan maraming nagdurusa dahil dito.

Habang naglalakad ako sa labas pauwi galling sa aking trabaho, hindi ko maiwasang titigan ang mga dekorasyong pamasko na isinasabit ng mga naglalakihang Malls. Ang mga kumukutitap na mga ilaw ay nagpapaalala sa akin na sa kabila ng mga kalamidad tuloy pa rin ang maagang selebrasyon ng pasko para sa ating lahat.

At oo nga pala, nagpapaalala rin ang mga ilaw na ito ng mga masasayang pasko namin noon. Paskong sana ay ganoon pa rin ngayon kung kailan napakaraming unos na dumarating sa  aming buhay. Ang bawat isang unos ay pawang mas tumitindi sa bawat araw. Binubunot nito kahit na ang kahuli-hulihang ugat  ng aking pananampalataya na nakabaon sa kaila-ilaliman ng aking puso.

The moral blessing of true Christianity

Biblical morals are without compromise. The Law and commandments were great. Grace and the Holy Spirit now are even greater. If Christ cleanses your heart today you’ll live the way God wants you to because of the greater blessing. Biblical morality is right living because of the redeeming power of a crucified Christ that flows from Calvary into the human soul.

“Will there be an end times temple in Jerusalem?”

Question: “Will there be an end times temple in Jerusalem?”

Answer: The Bible mentions that some end-times events will occur in a temple in Jerusalem (Daniel 9:27; Matthew 24:15). Second Thessalonians 2:4, speaking of the Antichrist, tells us, “He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.” The Prophet Ezekiel described a temple that has as of yet never existed (Ezekiel chapters 40-48).Before the end times can occur, a temple must be present for these events to occur in.

There is still the “small” problem of the Islamic Dome of the Rock mosque being on the site where the Jewish temple is supposed to be. Muslims believe this is the place from which Mohammed ascended into heaven, making it the most sacred of Muslim shrines. For the Jews to take over this place and build a temple upon it would be unthinkable in today’s political climate. But during the tribulation, the building of the Temple will come about, protected by the Antichrist (Daniel 9:24-27).

When we see the Temple being constructed, we can be sure the end times are indeed upon us. The Antichrist will be reigning, the Church will already have been raptured, and the first half of the tribulation will have passed. But there will still be time for people to come to Christ for salvation.

Nuggets – The Wickedness of Unbelief

The Wickedness of Unbelief
“And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.” (Deuteronomy 13:10-11)

In context, this “wickedness” was the crime of rejecting and influencing others to reject the Lord. While this is not a capital crime in a Christian context, this passage does show how God feels about the sin of unbelief—especially trying to persuade others into unbelief—in the infinite love and sacrifice of Christ who suffered and died for their sins. “He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?” (Hebrews 10:28-29).

Unbelief in Christ is, in fact, the only sin which God cannot forgive, and thus is the most wicked sin of all. Christ died for all our sins, and thus will provide full forgiveness for all who will accept His gift of salvation. Christ Himself said: “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18).

One of the final words of the Bible warns: “But the fearful, and unbelieving . . . shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8). The Lord Jesus is speaking of those who have spurned His sacrificial love. It may seem a light thing in our modern society to ignore or reject Him, but it will eventually prove “a fearful thing” (Hebrews 10:31) to face Him in judgment. HMM
