KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… All Scripture is inspired by God…” (2 Timothy 3:16, the Holy Bible).

MANY FILIPINOS DO NOT KNOW HOW TO PRAY: I consider funny and hilarious, but at the same time totally sad and pathetic, all Facebook posts saying there is a need for Filipinos to pray so that their leaders would turn righteous and upright.

The fact is, it is clear many Filipinos do not understand what it takes for a prayer to be answered, and why Filipino politicians and officials in top government positions turn out to be corrupt and plunderous.

This is sad and totally pathetic, considering that we have been priding ourselves, for as long as I can remember now, that the Philippines is the only Christian nation in the Far East whose citizens believe in God. If we are so deep with Christianity, how come the promises of the Bible about power, wealth, victory and success, have clearly escaped or avoided us?

CHRISTIANS “ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE”: The truth hurts, really, but it is still the truth. Ask any ordinary believer on the streets of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao: what is the prayer that God answers favorably? Almost always, perhaps 99.99% of the time, no one, though they profess to be Christians, can answer that.

Almost always, perhaps 99.99% of the time again, no Filipino Christian will remember the ringing words of Jesus in Matthew 7:21: “Not all who call on me, `Lord’, `Lord’ will enter the kingdom of heaven…” Not one will remember that not all who says “My God”, “My God” will be listened to by God.

Why is this happening? The Bible itself answers this, in Hosea 4:6 which says, quite emphatically: “… my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” Indeed, when people who believe in God do not know what Jesus said in Matthew 7:21, and do not know as well what Jesus said was the condition so those who call on Him, “My God”, “My God”, would have their prayers favorably answered, then destruction awaits them.

BIBLE: PRACTICAL INSTRUMENT TO ACQUIRE POWER: This is the reason why we at the Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo (AND KNK, or Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ) Church, a Christian church established in the Philippines by God to do His work during the end times, endeavor to acquire knowledge that is found in the Word of God, the Bible, through furious Bible studies and prayer meetings among our members.

We believe that the Bible contains the very “breath” of God, the verses written therein having been inspired by God to be written, not only to serve as unreachable commands, but as practical instruments to acquire power to prevail in our daily lives here on earth, and to assure ourselves of salvation in Paradise in eternal life.

The Bible alone contains promises about best health, lengthy life, victorious endeavors, and upright and righteous conduct. When we read the Bible, we in reality are conversing with God, because the Bible itself assures us that the Word is God Himself. Let us therefore read and study the Bible, and then carefully obey its every command, so that when we pray God will favorably listen to us.
