Genesis 12:1-3

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and

your father’s household to the land I will show you.

“I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”

Big Message: All peoples will be blessed thru you.

What is the purpose of a blessing?

God wants you to have more.

It only becomes bad to have more, when you do it to
the expense of what is good.

The purpose of every blessing is for you to be
a blessing to others.

God wants you to be a channel of abundance.

It was Jesus who did that.

God will never give up on you.

Bless 1 person a day.

Kindness is contagious.

Pray to God, Lord who do you want me to bless today?

Make the most of everything that you have.

Share that blessing.

There is blessing in receiving,
and there is also a blessing in giving.

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

God wants you to have abundance.

Abundance Giving
Abundance Earning

You need to give, because we declare
to God that everything belongs to Him.

The reason why there is abundance in our
lives because God is generous.

Jesus says do not worry.

God is generous, so you need to be generous.

3 pipelines

1. Job
2. Investments
3. Business

Be unstoppable.

Generous people are happy people.

Earn more — Learn more.

Keep on learning.

Abundance is not about money. It’s about joy, love
and peace. It’s about Jesus.

Genesis 3:17-19

To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife
and ate fruit from the tree
about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’

“Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat food from it
all the days of your life.
It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.
By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
and to dust you will return.”

Genesis 2:15

The Lord God took the man and put him
in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

Work is not a punishment, it is a privilege
to be the hands of God.

God will prosper the works of your hands.

2 Kinds of Work

1. Before the fall (Genesis 2)
– you are working with the owner of the garden

2. After the fall (Genesis 3)
– happened outside the Garden of Eden
– you are working separated from God

Big Message: I’m God’s co-worker.

It’s your choice what kind of work that you do.

If you work with God, you are building a miniature
of Garden of Eden.

God wants you to be a billboard of His Kingdom.

Speaker: Alvin Barcelona

Sanctity and the need to work.

Psalms 128:2

You will eat the fruit of your labor;
blessings and prosperity will be yours.

Proverbs 12:11

Those who work their land will have abundant food,
but those who chase fantasies have no sense.

Proverbs 14:23

All hard work brings a profit,
but mere talk leads only to poverty.

Proverbs 16:3

Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
and he will establish your plans.

Proverbs 22:29

Do you see someone skilled in their work?
They will serve before kings;
they will not serve before officials of low rank.

Work skillfully

Colossians 3:24

since you know that you will
receive an inheritance
from the Lord as a reward.
It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Ephesians 4:28

Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer,
but must work, doing something useful with their own hands,
that they may have something to share with those in need.

Work is not just a means of living, but above
all, it is a means of loving.

Most of the time God gives you seeds, not fruits.

Homily by Fr. Titus Mananzan

The best preparation for Christmas is repentance.

Speaker: Bro Audie Villaraza

Start believing in the promise even before you see the proof.

Walk by faith and not by sight.

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

Luke 12:22-28

Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?
“Consider how the wild flowers grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith!

Big Message: You already have what you need.

The universe is God’s house and He’s the owner
of the house and you’re the guest. And God is the host.

God wants to remind you of how abundant is the universe.

Psalm 8:3

When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,

This is an abundant universe.

Psalm 104:27-28

All creatures look to you
to give them their food at the proper time.
When you give it to them,
they gather it up;
when you open your hand,
they are satisfied with good things.

God provides

Do not worry

Because God is a generous God

You worry because you don’t believe that
God is a generous God.

God will provide

Blessings of God in God’s house does not run out.

In your mind, where do you live?

Are you living in a house of scarcity or

You worship a generous God.
And there is nothing to worry.
I know I am in an all win situation.
God will provide!

Speaker: Bro Audie Villaraza

1. Stop worrying, start worshiping

Luke 12:31

Seek first the kingdom of God above all else
and He will give you what you need.

We spend so much time on our worry.
We focus on worrying too much.

Pour out your energy and time into seeking
God first.

All is well, God is in control

2. Stop worrying, start working.
You gotta work on it.
Participate on what God is doing.

3. Stop worrying, start waiting.
There’s so much pressure to always be in a hurry.
More long term.

4. Stop worrying, start welcoming.
God will find a way to fill your need.
There is no demand that God cannot deliver.

We often think that we’re gonna run out.

In God’s house you already have what you need.

Genesis 2:8-9, 16-17

Now the Lord God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and
there he put the man he had formed. The Lord God made all kinds of
trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye
and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of
life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any
tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will
certainly die.”

Big Message: God wants you to have abundance.

The forbidden fruit symbolizes what is defined as good and evil
apart from God.

3 Hidden Message Of Temptation

1. Your temptation will tell you there’s scarcity in your life

Genesis 3:1

…“Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the

Every temptation is a lie.

You’re already blessed.

2. Because there is scarcity, grab for yourself only

Always prioritize people than money

Life will find a way to reward you.
Do the right thing.

3. Take matters into your own hands. God cannot be trusted

There is abundance when you follow God

God can be trusted. When He says it’s wrong, it’s because
you will be destroyed.

Your perception creates your reality
It’s a head problem
It’s how we look at ourselves
How we perceive our jobs
How we perceive our growth
How we perceive God

Romans 12:2

Do 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.

2 Extreme definition of Abundance

1. Abundance = Money

Money is only a part of what God wants you to be abundant in

There are a lot of happy people that have less money

Money is important, but it is not the only important thing in the

Abundance is not measured by money
Abundance is measured by gratitude

2. Money can never be part of God’s abundance

Deuteronomy 8:18

But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the
ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he
swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

What is abundance?
Abundance is God’s love.

Not for your own, but also for others.

Matthew 12:48-50

He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?”
Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my
brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my
brother and sister and mother.”

Homily by Fr. Steve Tynan

Sit and listen to the Lord
The power of prayer
Prayer is the heartbeat of our relationship with God.
Commitment to prayer.
I need God.
Your relationship to God is much more important.
Prayer is the most important part of everyday.

Speaker: Bro Audee Villaraza

Jesus came so that we will have life to the full.

It’s not the absence of your problem that will
make your life full, it’s the presence of
Jesus amidst your problems that will make your
life full.

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

Luke 1:26-29

In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.

Theotokos – one who gives birth to God

Declared in the Council of Ephesus declaring
Mary to be the Mother of God

Colossians 1:27

…Christ lives in you.

Jesus lives in me.

You are a God carrier.

Favor of God.
He wants you to bless the world.
Give birth to God to the people arround you.
And it will mess you up.

There are times the favor of God, He will
disturb you.

God has a plan for you.

Give your situation to God.
Letting God take over.
Give your worries, stress, anxiety, mess to God.

Philippians 2:6-7

who, though he was in the form of God,
did not regard equality with God
as something to be exploited,
but emptied himself,
taking the form of a slave,
being born in human likeness.
And being found in human form,

Big Message: God will fill you up with better things.

Saints are filled with God’s presence.

How do we get filled with God’s presence?

If you want to receive blessing, you need to make
room for it.

What do you need to remove in your life so that
God can replace it with something better.
Empty yourself.

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

Better things is God himself.

Empty yourself for Jesus.
You will be filled with Jesus.

Philippians 2:7

but emptied himself,
taking the form of a slave,

If you follow Jesus,
everyone is family.

Be a servant.

Be selfless.

To do something to someone without expecting anything
in return.

I’m already blessed.

Your problems are the biggest blessings.

There are people in your life that you need to serve.

Empty myself of anything in my life that does not
come from you.

Give your life to God.

Speaker: Bro JC Libiran

Big Message: You’re already a saint

All of us make mistakes

Saints became Saints because they relied on God’s unending grace
Not by our own efforts but by the grace of God

Genesis 1:27

So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;

We are God’s image

You are His ambassador.
You are His representative
You are God’s Tselem

Tselem – Image – Statue
– symbolic representative of the king’s presence

Exodus 20:4

“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything
in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.

Matthew 28:19-20

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.
And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Wherever you go, God is there.

To be God’s face, you need to go face-to-face

Ask God — Lord how do you want me to be your tselem?

Speaker: Bro Audee Villaraza

Sometimes we poorly represent God

Genesis 1:31

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.

When He created you, you are already a saint
But sin happened

Genesis 27:22-26

So Jacob went up to his father Isaac, who felt him and said,
“The voice is Jacob’s voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.”
He did not recognize him, because his hands were hairy like his brother Esau’s hands;
so he blessed him. He said, “Are you really my son Esau?” He answered, “I am.”
Then he said, “Bring it to me, that I may eat of my son’s game and bless you.”
So he brought it to him, and he ate; and he brought him wine, and he drank.
Then his father Isaac said to him, “Come near and kiss me, my son.”
So he came near and kissed him; and he smelled the smell of his garments,
and blessed him

God cannot bless who you pretend to be
God knows who you look like

Saints are sinners who are forgiven by God

Psalm 51:1-2,7

Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

Genesis 33:1-4

Jacob looked up and there was Esau, coming with his four hundred men;
so he divided the children among Leah, Rachel and the two female servants.
He put the female servants and their children in front, Leah and her children next,
and Rachel and Joseph in the rear. He himself went on ahead and bowed down
to the ground seven times as he approached his brother.
But Esau ran to meet Jacob and embraced him;
he threw his arms around his neck and kissed him. And they wept.

God cannot heal what you continue to conceal
God can only heal when you are willing to reveal
Stop running away from your issues
That’s not who you are
You are forgiven
You are loved
You are worthy
You’re my child
