Still a blessing!

Epistles of Christ

Hi dearly beloveds!

I am most glad to see that this blog is still a blessing to many. I'm still getting emails and responses from the entries here. It is wonderful to see how Jesus can impact many, even in something as humble as this blog.

We are all the bearers of THE Good News, the Letters of Christ Himself. It's whether you know it or not. But i choose to be aware of it most of the time. I do forget, yes. But for the most part, i'm most glad that i've been imparted with the knowledge of this verse shared by Pastor some time back.

2 Corinthians 3:3 clearly you are an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart.

So, go out there, Shine, be a Blessing, walk with this knowledge that you ARE the Letters of Christ Himself!

Peace, Love & Joy.

Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

I've been reading some of the caustic comments on this blog and also another which I have somewhere on the internet. It's interesting to see the spirit of the person writing such caustic and sometimes even hateful comments. It's a reflection of the spirit residing inside.

Who is in us? Who is in me? I'm glad to say I have Jesus in me. HE has given me Peace, Joy and most of all LOVE. We love our neighbors in thought, deed and word. And the measure of it all? It is how our neighbors see us and perceive us and experience Jesus' love through us. People can always tell when you're faking it. Allow Jesus to work through you to manifest His love for your fellow neighbor.

I hope this can be food for thought and spirit.

God bless everyone!

First Fellowship session at my place.

Hi everyone!

It's been a very long time since i posted anything. But today has been an exceptional Jesus day! Finally i have followed through with a calling God has put in my heart for a few months already. A small group of friends came over to my place and we had a wonderful time of testimony, sharing the Word and prayer.

Praise God. Thank you Jesus!

Let's make it happen more and more!

God bless everyone here.

Hope, Thanksgiving & Receiving.

Hi Blessed Folks!

It has been a while... About 6 months since i posted anything. Been busy with work, been putting the faith march on the sidelines lately... Prompted to reactivate this blog cos i know it's been a blessing to many already. : )

What else then do we have on this earth? It seems, day to day, the world we live in is growing bleaker, darker and reeling into chaos. How do we as believers reign in this life on earth?

One word...


As a Christian believer, the primary driving force in our faith IS Hope.

In the Greek text of the New Testament "Hope" in the original language is "Elpis".

And Elpis is defined by Strong's concordance as:
1) From ἔλπω elpō which is a primary word (to anticipate, usually with pleasure); expectation (abstract or concrete) or confidence: - faith, hope.

And defined in Thayer's Greek Definition as:
2) expectation of good, hope

We can concur and put both definitions together in the spirit of the Good News as:
= Elpis = A confident expectation of good!

What more can we ask for then? Knowing that we are the beloved one of God and now we can confidently hope for good things to happen in our lives!

Next best thing to do?

Give thanks for what we have in our hands and confidently expect good things to happen, confidently expect the miracles to happen, confidently expect supernatural abundance!

*Best results shown here:
Mark 6:36-44
36 Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.
37 He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?
38 He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.
39 And he commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.
40 And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.
42 And they did all eat, and were filled.
43 And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
44 And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.

The above illustration showed the magnitude of the miracle and abundance, with the very little Jesus had in His hands.

But where's the key then?

Here it is!...
John 6:11
And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.

Go to the One in Heaven and give thanks with what you have now in your hands and He will give what you do not have in your hands! : )

What's the last bit then?

Enjoy the fish and bread given! Receive it! Eat it! What's the point of a miracle or blessing coming your way and you don't receive it and enjoy it?

Start telling Him that you've received your blessing already!

Mark 11:24
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

I hope you have been blessed!

I pray to all that read this, to have a Shalom 2010! A year of Abundance, Favor & Rest!

Shalom & God bless you all,
Emmanuel : )

Why & How do we Love?

Something really simple but profound...

1John 4:19-21
21 We love Him because He first loved us.
20 If anyone says, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a liar. For if he does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
21 And we have this commandment from Him, that he who loves God should love his brother also.

Is the love we receive from God conditional on our good works/deeds/prayers?
NO. He FIRST loved us. Even before we've done anything for Him, He first loved us. Can we then mete out the same measure of love, as we have been given by God by His abundance of Grace, to our fellow man? Be it friend or foe.

I hope we can all dwell & chew/meditate on this thought for the rest of the week. : )

Shalom Shalom,

I am Blessed!

Hi All!

I've been asked several times at work today, the usual, "How's your day?" or "How are you doing?" kind of question.

What would the usual response be usually? "Oh ok." or "Not too bad." or something to that effect. But today i decided to catch myself before i said these things and quickly shouted out, "I'm good! Great! Hallelujah!"

I've decided that whatever that the day has in store for me, nothing can beat how God has given His very best to me. His beloved One, Jesus Christ! How terribly bad can my day be when God has given me His best already?

Christ consciousness. The consciousness of how much God loves me. That's what brings me through the whole day. And with that, i can really count my blessings. From the simple breakfast that i have at home, till the time i reach home and greeted by my wonderful family.

I hope we all can meditate and dwell on this consciousness that it doesn't really matter what happens to us, we have all already been blessed in advance!

Shalom & be Blessed,
