A common question nowadays… How can we answer that?
Let’s have some theories:

•Therefore, he/she is a Christian?

He/She is a Bible-believing person.

•Therefore, he/she is a Christian?

He/She is a Protestant/Baptist/Etc.

•Therefore, he/she is a Christian?

He/She is a believes in God.

•Therefore, he/she is a Christian

He/She has a personal relationship with Jesus.

•Therefore, he/she is a Christian?

Now, is there any theory here that you can consider a Law already? 🙂
You know the answer already 🙂

BHKJOURNAL_2017_00001: Thank You 2016; Welcome 2017!

In my traditional yearly counting of blessings, 2016 scores 10,489 total blessings.

173 of the total 10,489 (1.6%) are specific “YES” answers to my Prayer Requests.

To start 2017, I alreay counted 15 blessings (6 were specifics, that’s 40% ot the total, 60% were surprises).

This might be good numbers but more than the blessings, let us look at the Ultimate Blessor.

All glory, honor and praise belong to GOD.

BHKJOURNAL_2016_00009: 18 Years Ago

18 years ago, a group of friends (my classmates), asked me this question, “If you were to die today, do you know where would you go?”

I answered quickly, “in heaven!” Because I have read already in the Bible that “whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” But reality sank when they asked me a follow-up question, “Are you sure?” From that moment, I give in, I am not really sure, I just read it and put the idea in my mind without taking it to the heart.

The moment I surrender my “intellectual thinking” of eternity, the moment God reigns in my life. He became the center of everything. The intellectual became spiritual and the happiness became joy.

Today, it marks the 18th year anniversary of the moment I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. The moment I realized that more than putting eternity in an intellectual mode, it should be more of spiritual. Less of me, more of God. I am nothing but Christ gave up everything for me to have a real meaning.

18 years have passed, ups and downs surpassed, unfaithfulness even ruin some of the great plans and dreams, unfaithfulness I know hurt the Holy One but 18 years and counting, He is still faithful and just even if I am not.

Lord, thank you for being You.

All honor glory and praise belong to You.

Today, let me also lead you to a prayer similarly to the one I utter 18 years ago…

Heavenly Father . . . I acknowledge that the separation between us . . . is because of my sin . . . I confess that I have sinned . . . and have fallen far short of Your glory . . . I thank You that You sent Your Son, Jesus . . . to pay the penalty for my sin . . . I believe that He died on the cross for me . . . I believe that You raised Him from the dead . . . I am sorry for my sins . . . and I ask You to forgive and cleanse me . . . I want to turn away from everything the Bible calls sin . . . and receive You as my Lord, Master, and Savior . . . help me to love, serve, and obey You . . . for the rest of my life . . . in Jesus’ name . . . Amen!

“If you have sincerely prayed that prayer, the Bible promises that the old has gone and the new has come!”

Smile, smile, where art thou?

Everywhere! Answered by Thee;

Yes it is, but genuineness, where art?

A whisper said on mountaintop maybe.

 

How many more days that can be endured?

Before real smile come back unto yours truly;

Rest they say is just needed in a small spree

But more than that is necessary to truly be set free.

 

Looking for progression to see a genuine smile,

It’s hard to have it when there’s suppression inside;

Where art thou, o where art thou?

Only one release can answer all thy questions.

 

Longing for that blessing of release since the year started,

Still the answer: patience is a virtue and love is the greatest of them all;

But there is an end in every indescribable tunnel,

Especially when years passed by and the funnel is still at the lowest level.

 

In the process of losing the smile once again,

Differences are not the ones who blind the eyes nor to see it clear;

Hypocrisy, people-pleasing attitude and two-faced character with self-righteousness maybe,

One thing for sure, special release is needed not to give up thy integrity.

 

Fresh air and relaxation on mountaintop, please give back thy lost smile

To a person who’s longing for it for quite some time;

The one looking for that genuineness has experienced his longest drought,

Greatest comeback in history is about to unleash in that seeking time.

 

Smile, smile, smile… please come back to thy home of yours,

Freedom, freedom, freedom… expressed the heart that is suppressed;

The bravery inside the kid’s heart cannot wait any longer

For the best release that is needed in unleashing the smile of forever.

BHKJOURNAL_2015_0002: A Controversial Blog…

Warning: The contents of this blog are controversial. If you are into it, then prepare your hearts because this will either shake your beliefs or open your eyes and hearts to a better understanding.

Controversy

Let us start with this statement of mine:

I would rather worship the GOD whom I cannot see but I can feel in my life and hear His still small voice whenever I call on to Him, and the One who gives me victory in all my battles all throughout despite my perfect imperfections than join the rampage of running after a god that can’t even lift a finger to move itself while deceiving many people with its so-called “healing powers.”

People run after that god yet their lives have never been transformed by this man-made carved material and most of the times, many devotees instead of being healed, they end up being hurt and sadly some of them end up in jeopardy.

GOD doesn’t need our penance! He wants our repentance!

 JESUS already paid all our debts when he died on the cross more than 2000 years ago yet He didn’t remain DEAD. He rose again (resurrected) so we could enjoy the benefits of being free.

PAID IN FULL! Just accept His greatest gift. We don’t have to pay it anymore. Accept the gift, enjoy it and say our gratitude to Him by obeying His commands.

GOD is everywhere (omnipresent)! He is not just in Quiapo or in the temple courts. GOD is always with us. He is always knocking in the doors of our hearts, all we have to do is open it, let Him in and reign over our lives.

Let me clear things out… I was once a believer of other gods that I thought was the real one yet my life was not transformed until I find the truth on why JESUS came on earth and gave us the greatest gift of our lives.

Romans 8:1-2

1Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you[a] free from the law of sin and death.

Be BOLD! Do not be ashamed of the Gospel! Share the Good News!

Romans 1:16-17

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. 17For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”

WORSHIP the LIVING the GOD! GOD is not DEAD!

Romans 12:1-2

1Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

BHKJOURNAL_2014_0013: 16th year with the LORD…

Today, I celebrate the faithfulness of God in my life since I came to know Him personally exactly 16 years ago.

As I have told you before, I was a religious and “righteous” kid back then when some of my friends invited me to join their Bible study group. I was hesitant at first thinking that they might recruit me into a new religion. I make excuses the first time they invited me, I just told them that I am busy cleaning the classroom and that I will just join them the next time they asked me to be with them.

When they had another gathering, I was there again, cleaning our classroom and once again they asked me to join them. Being a man of my word, I fulfilled my promise that I’ll join them that time. As I joined the group, I tried to use my intelligence in answering some of the questions that they have asked. In the end, I was humbled by the very word of the Lord. I realized that my intelligence was not enough to know and reach God in a personal way.

At exactly 5:45PM of December 7, 1998 at the left back corner of our classromm (IV-Galileo of CCSHS Batch 1999) and the sun was about to set, I accepted JESUS as my personal Lord and Savior.

My life has never been the same after that encounter. The former shy-type guy started to discover his leadership potential. In fact, some of the leaders that led me to know Christ have gone astray but I am not giving up on them as they have not given up on me before. If God has not given up on me, He will also do the same with them.

In the early years of walking with HIM, I have not been faithful to God and I even had an experience of running away from Him in some point in time but GOD has been faithful and He will remain faithful until the very end.

In the past few month, more clouds entered in the picture and somewhat I lost track of HIS plans but HE is faithful enough. HE even turned the lights on once again when all I can see is darkness. Thankfully, GOD is faithful and truly he is the LIGHT of this world.

Right now, I just want to honor my GOD during my 16th Spiritual birthday but renewing my commitment with HIM as I celebrate and highlight the goodness and faithfulness of God in my life!

I am also hoping and praying that as I re-commit my life with HIM, the energy, fire and zealousness will be back to the highest level.

I am also believing that the LORD will help bring back the best “Brave Heart Kid” who will give his all in all in honoring GOD and making disciples.

As I end another chapter and start a new one, I want to ask some of you… If you don’t have a personal relationship with God and you felt like your in total darkness or you can not feel His presence because you only know Him in your minds not in your heart. I am challenging you today to repent of your sins, allow GOD to be the Master of your life… Accept the gift of salvation He is offering you since He resurrected from the dead… And I assure you this… You will also feel the security that I have received exactly 16 years ago…

If you are up to the challenge… I can help you about it, just leave a message.

God bless us all!

All glory and honor belong to the LORD! =)
