“God Exalts the Humble and Opposes the Proud.”
The Pride Of Faith:
As I have been saying, my vote was for Miriam Santiago even if obviously she will lose. In prayers, I asked God why Duterte.
I only started supporting Duterte when he became president because it is God’s command to submit, for all leadership is ordained by God, and whoever resisting is resisting God (Romans 13:1) What more, it is His revelation to me.
Before i close my eyes here on the other part of the world, I happened to be in an “intellectual intercourse trapping” I allowed myself to be a victim of interrogations, with their pretending to simply and honestly just wanting to know my piece of mind. That when my logic was not in line to their feel of biblical mastery they started to mock me perhaps in the name of their god.
I always talk about life most of the time before i jump into sharing my belief and understanding because memorized verses are better understood if life is brought in every situation.
Was Christ Jesus, the Son of Man, really has no place to lay His head? Why would Jesus say it is easier for the camel to enter the eye of the needle than a rich man to enter heaven? Jesus talks about a lot of parables.
Sometimes, and most of the time, we enter the battle of the wit no longer for God’s glory but to glorify our own selves. Shouting to the world how good we are. “Praying, thank you for I am not that kind of person…” While the that kind of person will simply say, “Forgive me Lord, a sinner.” And, the publican went home justified.
PRIDE is the sin of Satan. He corrupted his wisdom because of his splendor. Let us not forget that the Fear of the Lord is the begining of true wisdom. Sin of pride starts in the mind when we start believing only us has the monopoly of knowledge, holier than thou, we are so good believing to know everything, forgetting that it is all about Him.
When a pastor would come down from a pulpit and one would say that it was a very good preaching the pastor should be in a silent pray and say Glory to God for apart from Him he can do nothing.
THERE IS A WAR IN DRUGS. I talk about my experience because i know what it is being there, as a mere observer. And if a law enforcer will play, sincerely, just talk, surely he or they will just drop dead. Hard core are ready even to kiss the sole of your shoes, the hole of your dirty ass when they are cornerred but just give them a small space and again the opportunity of dying men in uniform will occur. “Its a question of them or the law enforcer.” Someone may surely die in every true encounter even to innocent bystanders or just a “meron.”
Who would you want to fall?
Abuses of the men in uniform is obvious but not all. And because you belong to holier than thou Christians, you find the group of Christians who support Duterte as the “Bad Christians” perhaps, not even christians, for you already judged that you alone has the monopoly of understanding God, the God, whose thoughts are not our thoughts and whose ways are not our ways.
John 21:22, Jesus speaking, “If I want him (referring to John) to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? As for you, follow me.”
As Christians,our eyes should be fixed only to Christ Jesus for God’s revelation to other believers might be different from you. Jesus is saying to Peter, “As for you, follow me.” Let God be God. The position of being God is taken. so, just follow Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.
Over the ordinary citizens, I prefer the criminals being killed, than the ordinary citizens. Over the “victims” of the riding in tandem, i prefer the riding in tandem criminals being killed. I prefer the drug lords be killed than them spread more death and family destruction.
“The election of Duterte as president, happens under the providence of God. HOWEVER, God’s sovereignty does not give us license for sinful choices.”
ON THE OTHER HAND, “For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer” (Romans 13:4).
LET US ALL PRAY FOR PRESIDENT RODRIGO DUTERTE. Instead, of Christians who are near Duterte criticizing him for every opportunity. Why not rather find a way to share God’s love to the ruling president? Likewise, i thank God for keeping me not going down to the level of these intellectual foolishness to God’s sight. Vengeance Is Mine says the Lord
