On April 1, 2012 at Sun Life Stadium of Miami, Florida… an era has ended in Wrestlemania 28… Three iconic WWE Superstars went out of the ramp hand in hand after a brutal match of Triple H and The Undertaker in the most demonic structure in WWE, Hell in a Cell.
After the hard fought match, when the world saw the three of them standing together hand in hand with the 20-0 icon (that symbolizes the Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania) at the back of them, it only symbolizes one thing… it’s the END of an ERA!
Speaking of end, I have received reports in two weeks by the passing away of some people that includes one of my lolo’s. The Philippine media world also mourn by the loss of one of the icons in Philippine broadcasting, Angelo Castro Jr. (anchor of the news program “The World Tonight”). He was known for his gentleman way of broadcasting – a thing that we often find nowadays. It just means another thing… Another END of an ERA!
Then, the most shocking part was when I checked our Mediatrix Society group on facebook, I found out that one of my former colleagues and our Governor in the society has passed away already. I was just saddened that I never had a chance to take to him about the gospel but I am hoping that through my blogs, the word of the Lord has been planted to him already. So Gimbelle! Thank you and we will surely miss you… Your ERA might have come to an end but your impact will never!
Then, last night… for the first time ever in Cabantuan history, different congregations from the whole of Nueva Ecija and some guest from other part of the country gathered together at Nueva Ecija High School Oval to know and rediscover the power of the CROSS!
Testimonies after testimonies were shared by simple people, politicians, actors and actresses, pastors and a lot more. Their testimonies were so moving as they shared what God has done in their lives. There were also singing, shouting, jumping and celebrating shouts of praise to bring glory to the One who died on the Cross two millenniums ago.
Yes, there were celebrities who participated in the said event and their testimonies were great BUT those things were not the main event. The highlight of the evening is the power that has come on the CROSS when JESUS died and rose again after three days, paid the penalty for our sins, became a ransom for many and exchange His righteousness just for us to be saved from eternal fire because HE loves us so much. HE ended an era!
Then, when I saw the thousands of people worshiping God in that place, I saw what kind of an era has ended. The era of poverty, rejection, division and darkness – they all come to an END!
It’s the beginning of a new era! An era of prosperity, success, unity and lightness has come to Cabanatuan and to the whole world because people will know the power behind the CROSS when the Lord Jesus died on that place to save mankind from all oppression. Their hearts will be opened this time as the LORD will intrude in every single person of this world.
The CROSS of JESUS ends an ERA of the dark world and HE has started an ERA of greatness for HIS children!
