Isaiah 44:21
“Remember these things, Jacob,
for you, Israel, are my servant.
I have made you, you are my servant;
Israel, I will not forget you.”

We are all addicted to something
Trade it to something better
Trade in your vice so you can have a better life

God wants you back
Your sin does not own you. God owns you

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

Genesis 25:29-32
Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!”
Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.”
“Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?”

All addiction will lie to you
Addiction will tell you, if you don’t act upon what you are
addicted on, you will die

Your cravings will die — not you — if you do not feed your cravings

Our problem is our lack of patience
Delay gratification

Focus on another pleasure

You cannot get rid your addiction
But you can trade it with another

Don’t focus on addiction
Focus on ambition

Hebrews 12:4
In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.

Often times we don’t fight temptation because we have no reason to fight
You will only fight temptation to the degree that you love yourself

Self rejection opens you to temptation

John 4:7
When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?”

John 4:11,13-14
“Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water?

Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

Our soul is thirsty for love
All addictions are pain killers

The reason why we have addiction is the lack of connection
The only way for you to be free of you addiction is the eternal love of God

True or False? Is Your Life Based on a Lie? – Information – Talk 3

Speaker: Bro George Gabriel

Exodus 32:1-4
When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain,
they gathered around Aaron and said, “Come, make us gods who will go before us.
As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know
what has happened to him.”
Aaron answered them, “Take off the gold earrings that your wives, your sons
and your daughters are wearing, and bring them to me.”
So all the people took off their earrings and brought them to Aaron.
He took what they handed him and made it into an idol cast in the shape of a calf,
fashioning it with a tool. Then they said, “These are your gods,Israel, who brought
you up out of Egypt.”

Exodus 32:21-24
He said to Aaron, “What did these people do to you, that you led them into such great sin?”
“Do not be angry, my lord,” Aaron answered. “You know how prone these people are to evil.
They said to me, ‘Make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses
who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.’
So I told them, ‘Whoever has any gold jewelry, take it off.’
Then they gave me the gold, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf!”

Lying comes from fear
Fear of getting embarrassed
We lie because we are not brave enough to tell the truth
When you lose truth, you lose freedom
You project a life that is not your own
You project a mask
We need to be honest with the people in our life
The truth will set you free

Truth and lies look the same in the outside

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

Big Message: REMOVE YOUR MASK

We don’t even know that we are wearing a mask

Some advertising are lies.  They make promises that are not true
Families can be filled with secrets
Families are as sick as their secrets that they keep
We pretend who we are not
We wear our mask too long
We don’t admit that we need help

Truth is so beautiful
Only truth can make life livable

Lie creates a fictional world
Lie is complicated
Live in the truth to make life simple

Sirach 1:29
Do not be a hypocrite before others, and keep watch over your lips.

Matthew 23:25
Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites!
You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed
and self-indulgence.

Lying about who you are
If your life is in a mess, stop pretending that your life is OK

Remove your mask, or else you will never be set free

Stop exaggeration

Sincerity is always powerful

Basis of relationship is trust
Trust comes from truth
Truth is beautiful
Lying is toxic
Learn to tell the truth more often

How can I tell the truth?

Ephesians 4:15
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect
the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.

Love is greater than emotional honesty
Truth must be a servant of love

4 things you need to do to stop lying

1. Silence – when you are tempted to lie,
stop and be silent – pray

2. Sincerity – when you are tempted to exaggerate

3. Share – find 2 or 3 friends who you can trust
and guide you

4. Sessions – family must have sessions to talk
about the truth in your family life

Speaker: Bro Odie Villaraza

James 2:14, 17
What good is it, my brothers and sisters,
if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds?
Can such faith save them?
In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

To fulfill your big task, you need faith.
But you also need fortitude or action.

Speaker: Bro Bo Sanchez

Big Message: Keep Walking

For us to be successful, we need HARD WORK.

People love this quote –>  Don’t work hard, work smart
But the key to success is to Work Smart and Work Hard

Work and love your work

Life is more exciting than the most exciting video game

Love your work

Your standard of work depends on the size of your dream

Work on your dream like crazy

You are swimming in an ocean of blessings

God already made the move.  It’s your turn to move

3 Sources of to know God’s will

1.  The Word — Bible, teachings of the church

2.  The Wise

Sirach 6:36
If you find someone with understanding,
    get up early to call on him;
    wear out his doorstep with your visits.

We need mentors that we can consult to

3.  The Why
Know your purpose

God give you the mission, he leaves the details to you
He gave you a brain to work out the details

4th Source: The Walk

Keep walking, experimenting, exploring

Keep struggling, and be willing to fail

Aim for progress, not perfection

Keep going

Speaker: Bro George Gabriel

You only appreciate the light wen you are in total darkness

When you are in total darkness and you hold a lamp,
you only see the things near you.  You need to take a step
to see the things further.

God shows you the next few steps

The only way that you will be able to see the next steps
is that you need to take a step forward.

The more you move forward, the more you see that his word is
in every step.

3 Steps

1. Plan for your dream

Proverbs 21:5
The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.

Proverbs 6:6-8
Go to the ant, you sluggard;

It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Idea — Plan — Action

Make your vision
Decades long vision
Long term perspective
How long term is your thinking?

Success – ability to sacrifice now for the future

Marry your vision

Schedule, budget

Proverbs 24:27

Exodus 13:17-18
When Pharaoh let the people go, God did not lead them on the road through the Philistine country,
though that was shorter. For God said, “If they face war, they might change their minds and return to Egypt.”
So God led the people around by the desert road toward the Red Sea.The Israelites went up out of Egypt ready for battle.”

Are you taking the longer route?
The shortest way may not be the best way
Trust in God’s wayze
Keep moving forward

2 Problems When you go from bondage to freedom

1. Detour
God is allowing it for you to be ready
God uses detours as doorways to your destiny
Just like a slingshot, you pull it back moving farther from your target
The greater pullback, the greater comeback.
Better things are coming

2. Despair
Exodus 14:11-12
They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die?
   What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt?”

When people are gripped by despair
They’ll chose the predictability of slavery than uncertainty of freedom
Solution –> keep on moving forward
Miracles will happen if you keep moving forward

Whole Again- Restoring God’s Original Design: Heart – Talk 3

Speaker: Bro George Gabriel

Proverbs 15:17
“Better a small serving of vegetables with love
 than a fattened calf with hatred.”

What your heart needs is love
Love is your food
Loving people are healthier
People in love has a strong immune system
Any kind of love will make you healthier
If you do not get love, you die
How much love do you have? Because that will spell your health.
Love just doesn’t happen. You have to make it happen.
Loving relationship is hard work
A loving relationship requires selfless sacrifice
Love is expensive.
You die to your comfort
What’s your priority?
Put love in your calendar
Your greatest source of love is God
Have a daily date with God

Speaker: Bro Didoy

Dr Forgiveness
Forgive everyday
If no forgiveness, there is a lot of bitterness
Unforgiveness is a poison
Your mind is connected to you body

Matthew 5:7
“Blessed are the merciful,
 for they will be shown mercy.”

You cannot be hateful and happy at the same time
Release to have peace
Get out of the pool of poison
Forgive first
Freedom

Titus 3:5
“he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done,
 but because of his mercy.”

We can show mercy because we have received Gods mercy

Matthew 6:15
“But if you do not forgive others their sins,
 your Father will not forgive your sins.”

Forgiveness is not an emotion. It’s a decision
You deserve peace and wellness
What else do you need to let go?

Matthew 5:4
“Blessed are those who mourn,
 for they will be comforted.”

It’s hard to pray. Just pray
Forgiveness and friendship are different
You can forgive but not necessarily be friends
Daily forgive
Forgiveness must be a lifestyle
We can do this
To err is human but to forgive is divine – Alexander
There is healing power in worship
It’s your time with God

Perfect 10-God’s Winning Strategies:Commandments– Talk 3

Posted on Updated on

Speaker: Bro Alvin Barcelona

Big Message : GO ALL IN

Don’t see things in portions
Look through it as a whole
Wholeness of the message
Understanding things in its totality

Deuteronomy 29:9
“Therefore keep the words of this covenant and do them,
 that you may prosper in all that you do.”

Commandment 5 to 7
5. You shall NOT kill.
6. You shall NOT commit adultery.
7. You shall NOT steal.

We go in the Spirit of the Law
In general, 10 commandments are 10 doors
You open a door and go inside

These commandments are the biggies.
Yet avoiding them is simply the minimum.
Nobody gets fully blessed by simply avoiding
the NOT-TO-DO Things.

You may say “I did not do anything wrong”
or “I did not hurt or stepped on anybody.”

But the question is, “Did you do something good?”
“Did you helped somebody?” or “Did you love someone?”

Matthew 22:36-40
(Mark 12:30-31 / Luke 10:27)
“Teacher, which law is the greatest commandment in the law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord you God with all your
heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’
This is the first and greatest commandment.  And
the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
On these two commandments depend all the law and
the prophets.”

Speaker: Bro JC Libiran

Commandment # 5: Do Not Kill

Is abortion murder?
Is suicide murder?
Letter of the Law: Don’t take life.
Spirit of the Law: Give life.
Hatred is murder.

Matthew 5:21-22 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago,
‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgement.’
But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or a sister,
will be subject to judgement. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister,
‘Raca’, is answerable to the court.  And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’
will be in danger of the fire of hell.”

Romans 12:19 “Do not take revenge, my dear friends,
but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written:
“It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.

Romans 12:20-21 “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap
burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil,
but overcome evil with good.

Love is the best revenge.

Commandment #6: Do not commit adultery

Matthew 5:27-28 “The law of Moses said ‘You shall not commit adultery.’
But I say: Anyone who even looks at a woman with lust in his eye
has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

Sex is not only physical, it’s spiritual

Letter of the law: Be sexually faithful to your spouse
Spirit of the law: Be sexually, spiritually, emotionally,
and mentally faithful to your spouse.
–> leads to great married sex

Sexual energy is just another form of physical energy
Transform your sexual energy into active service for humanity.

Speaker: Bro Alvin Barcelona

Commandment #7: Do not steal

You don’t get blessed by not doing things,you get blessed by doing things

Do more than what is expected of you

Walang taong naawardan dahil sa reklamo
(Nobody receives an award for complaining)

Lahat ng naging successful dumaan sa hirap
(Successful people went through difficulties)

Letter of the law: Do not steal.

A good work is
a. Results and not complaints
