“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable…do not run aimlessly…do not box as one beating the air…But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.” 1Corinthians 9:24-27 ESV
Next week…classes begins, February 5, 2020!
These are the classes…
This class is a verse-by-verse study of the Gospel of Matthew with specific emphasis on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and His claim to be the Messiah. Because this Gospel is directed towards the Jews, Matthew uses numerous Old Testament references to the Messiah, Jesus Christ.
A verse-by-verse study of the entire gospel with emphasis on the theology of the Gospel of John and an in-depth look at the work and person of Jesus Christ, focusing on His deity and humanity. In addition to learning the contextual meaning of the book of John, students will address the place Christ holds in their own hearts specifically and the rest of the world.
1 & 2 Samuel (Life of David)
King David holds the unique title in scripture by God of “A man after God’s own heart.” He was a shepherd, a type of Christ, a prophet, a warrior, a musician, a hymn writer, a notorious sinner, a lousy father, and yet one of the greatest leaders in the history of Israel.
In this class we take an in-depth look at the man with this unique title and learn what we can discover about God, about leadership, and about what it means be a man after God’s own heart. This will be an interactive class, combining lecture with spirited class discussion.
This is a verse-by-verse exposition on the book of Ecclesiastes. Attention will be placed on helping the student understand the book’s place in Scripture, discussing its author, the moral issues revolving around the meaning and actions of life, discovering and applying God’s greatest good to our lives.
The goal of this class is to deepen the student’s relationships with Christ while gaining an academic and devotional understanding through Isaiah, getting familiar with the form and structure of the book. The student gets to learn about the basic theology, purpose, authorship, and various historical accounts related to Isaiah.
Though Isaiah relates God’s judgment upon those who reject Him, some of the most beautiful and profound prophecies of the Messiah are found in this powerful book. This is a chapter- by-chapter, expositional study.
This class is designed to help bilingual native readers /speakers have a better understanding of the English language and help improve their ability to communicate and express themselves confidently. We will focus on developing conversational and writing skills through the study of English language fundamentals, primarily through grammar and syntax (language rules).
This class is a time of fellowship for couples and singles where subjects concerning the marriage relationship are discussed. Letting scripture reveal how a Christ-centered marriage is foremost in a covenantal union between a man and a woman, the course will include a biblical understanding of men and women and discuss matters related to courtship, engagement, and areas that make marriage according to God’s plan for the family.

“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known. But now faith, hope, love, abide these three…”
Happy Monthsary! A common practice in the Filipino culture is the celebration of life in its beginning. It could be a birthday, a wedding anniversary, or any occasion one finds important to mark as a monthly reminder of the first year.
A beginning….that is continually celebrated, just as we celebrate our life in Christ Jesus. It can last a lifetime, or till the end of one’s faith in the life or occasion being memorialized. May that not be so!
“…but the greatest of these is love.”
I am celebrating with my Savior our 1st Monthsary in Dasmariñas. It is a temporary holding place He set up for me, and Stephen (a.k.a Rizty) whom He chose to detain until such time He deems perfect to re-unite us.
Today He takes my feet to Robinson’s Galeria, and I await the doors to open. The ” mallers”, “coolers”, and the true shoppers, walk into a Jollibee fast food outlet. World (as in world of Pinoys) famous for its “Chicken Joy”, it surprised me to see the people traffic wanting to be fed breakfast or brunch so early in the day. Lunch maybe? Or like me, waiting for the doors to open.
What is the purpose in every one’s heart as they sit and wait? What might they be attempting to remember, or perhaps forget?
What do you consider worth remembering while you live this life on earth (eretz)?
“I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor, it is the gift of God.”
Do you know where you are going when your transitory life is over?
“I know that whatever God does, It shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, And nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him.”
What the author of Ecclesiastes is reminding us is that it is God who does it, and is doing it everyday. Why? John 3:16
If you hear His voice, do not ignore Him because the Bible tells us,”For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” How? I’m glad you asked, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
That’s right, when you receive the gift of salvation from God through Jesus Christ, you become a child of the King of Kings!!!
Who you are…
