JE # 123 – Para sa’yo ano ba ang Pasko?

Disyembre 19, 2008

By LJ Salceda / DZAS


Paano kung walang Christmas tree at ‘di malamig ang simoy ng hangin?
Walang parol, belen at iba pang dekorasyong nakabitin?
Walang mga regalong bubuksan o grocery bags mula sa iyong bossing?
Walang cantata, Christmas carols at mga nangangaroling?

Paano kung wala si Frosty, si Rudolph at si Santa?
Wala ang mga pantas at ang bituing gabay nila?
Walang Christmas cards o package na ipadadala?
Walang hamon, puto bumbong, pati keso de bola?

Paano kung walang paputok at fireworks display?
Wala ka pang bonus at 13th month pay?
Walang Christmas parties at iba pang mga programa?
Malayo sa’yong bayan at wala pang kasama?

Paano kung walang December 25 sa isang taon?
Wala simbang-gabi, Noche Buena sa ating panahon?
Paano kung walang mangyari sa iyong mga hinihiling?
Pasko pa rin ba itong maituturing?

Pag-isipan mo…
Ano nga ba talaga ang Pasko?
O baka naman napalitan na ito ng mga simbolo?

JE # 122 – Feel Mo na ba ang Pasko?

Disyembre 17, 2008

Malamig na ang simoy ng hangin. May mga Christmas sale. Naglipana na rin ang mga snatcher at holdaper.

Feel mo na ba ang pasko?

Makulay ang paligid, excited ang lahat. Pero ang pasko ba ay nasa kulay, petsa, pera o pagsasaya?

Meron akong nakausap nung isang araw na ayaw daw ng Dios na magsaya ang mga tao kaya di sila nagdiriwang ng Pasko. Ang babaw naman. Ayaw pa ng Dios na magsaya tayo? Well, magsasaya tayo ng di nagkakasala. Pero may wisdom din yung sinabi nia. Marami sa mga ginagawa mga Kristiyano tuwing Pasko ay malayong-malayo na sa orihinal na unang Pasko.

Ang mga tao ay nagiging greedy at materialistic sa panahong ito. Bakit kaya? Pag pasko, natanim na sa isip ng tao na dapat meron sya nito, meron sya nun. Magrereklamo kung maliit ang 13th month pay. Magrereklamo kung walang bonus. May Kris Kringle na pahirapan pang maghanap ng kung anong mga something-something. May exchange gift na minsan ayaw pa ang regalong natanggap. Parusa! Eh di magkanya-kanya na lang ng bili para sa sarili ng walang reklamo. Remember, during the first Christmas, the wise men, Mary and Joseph did not exchange gifts. The wise men gave gifts without expecting something in return. Well, if you’re generous enough, give without expecting something. Naimbento lang nman ang exchange gifts na yan para walang lugi, lahat makatanggap. Naalala ko dati, may nagregalo ng bulok na saging. Galit na galit ngaun ang nkatanggap. Nasan kaya ang Christmas dun?

Aktibo na rin ang mga holdaper at snatcher. Sympre, hndi rin pahuhuli ang mga yan. Parang hndi kumpleto pag wala silang handa o kung anumang bagong material na bagay pagsapit ng Pasko.

Ang iba eh malungkot dahil malamig ang Pasko kasi wlang boyfriend/girlfriend. And nakakalungkot inispend ng iba ang Pasko sa motel para gumawa ng kasalanan.

Sa panahong to ang dami ring nanghihingi. Minsan nakakainis na. Makikita mo ang isang grupo na ito na may Christian sa pangalan na humihingi ng donation. Sa isang araw eh tatlong beses ko atang nakakasalamuha ang mga ito. Idagdag mo pa ang ilang kababayan nating Badjao na pag hndi mo nabigyan eh mumurahin ka pa. Ganito ba ang Pasko?

Feel mo ba ang Pasko?

Nag-evolve na nga ang Pasko. Ano ba ang gusto kong iparating? Ang Pasko ay hindi panlabas. Ang Pasko ay hindi nakikita sa abundance ng pera o ng regalo. Ang pera ay inimbento para gastahin. Pero hindi para sa mga walang kwentang bagay. Gastahin sa tamang paraan. Treasure must be enjoyed. Sabi sa Ecclesiastes 2:24

There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God. Ecclesiastes 2:24 (King James Version)

Gusto ng Dios na tayo’y nag-eenjoy. Nag-eenjoy na hindi nagkakasala.Nag-eenjoy sa tamang paraan at sa pamamaraan ng Dios.

Mahalagang iconsider natin ang Pasko bilang panloob na bagay. Bakit may Pasko? Dahil may Jesus na dumating sa mundo at nakasama natin.

John 1:14

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Siya ang dahilan kung bakit may Pasko na madalas ay nakakaligtaan ng marami dahil naging busy sa kung anu-anong party. Nabusy sa pagbabalot ng mga regalo. Busy sa paghahanap ng taong magpapainit ng kanilang Pasko. Walang masama sa pagsasaya. Aalalahanin lang natin ang dahilan kung bakit natin ipinagdiriwang ang season na ito.

Real Christmas is the dwelling of Christ within us. Yun lang naman eh. Ibabalik ko ulit ang tanong “Feel mo na ba ang Pasko?” Si Kristo ba ay nasa puso mo na at nananahan diyan sa buhay mo? Nagliliwanag ba Siya at nakikita ng iba sa yo? Kung oo, feel na feel mo ang Pasko!

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: John 1:12 (King James Version)

Once you receive the Lord Jesus as your Lord and Savior, ikaw ay may tunay na Pasko. Having Jesus everyday is experiencing Christmas day by day. Feel na feel mo ang pasko araw-araw! Sana ganito tayo araw-araw. Marami ang naglo-long na sana araw-araw Pasko. Hindi dahil gusto nilang maexperience ang Savior everyday but because of the material things they receive on Christmas season.

This season, mag-isip-isip kung ano ang mas mahalagang pagtuunan ng pansin sa buhay. Huwag sayangin ang buhay sa mga walang kwentang bagay. Life is a gift. Enjoy and treasure each day by living it for Jesus.

Colossians 1:16

For by him all things were created, in the heavens and on the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and for him.

I don’t demonize Christmas celebration. Gawin lang natin ng tama. Remember: Christmas is all about Jesus!

JE # 121 – The Dark Side of Christmas

Disyembre 9, 2008

We see Christmas as a joyful event. A season that everyone is happy. And it is the most colorful holiday of the year. But did you know that Christmas has its dark side too?

Christmas has evolved and it’s good to look at how or why we celebrate Christmas for we have a lot of practices that may not conform to the Word of God. . Listen and be transformed.

JE # 120 – The Hope of Transformation

Disyembre 8, 2008
By: Pastor Renchi

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln0’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln1’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

Christmas, easily, wins first prize for the most amazing, wonderful time of the year, and at the heart of this wonder is transformation. Everything transforms around Christmas time. Just look at our homes and the malls. Streets that glitter with Christmas lights. “People making lists, buying special gifts, taking time (for once) to be kind to one and all.”

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln2’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln3’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

No other holiday transforms the country like Christmas. And how fitting. Christmas is our celebration of Christ’s coming to earth—transforming into a man in order that men might be transformed.

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln4’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln5’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

What could be more wonderful and awe-inspiring than the fact that God became a man? (Joan Osborne asked, “What if God was one of us?” But there’s no “what if” about it. He did become one of us.) He left the perfect comfort and glory of heaven to live in this broken, painful world, where He would be rejected, hated, and ultimately murdered. He came to experience all the loss, frustration, confusion, hurt, loneliness, and temptation that we face. After this miracle of transformation, we could never accuse Him of not being able to understand. We could never complain that He was distant. It is mind-blowing. It is nothing short of amazing.

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln6’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln7’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

The story of Christ’s birth has a number of absolutely amazing elements. Four in particular are Joseph’s faith, Jesus’ bloodline (family background), the Magi’s arrival, and the advent/arrival of Jesus Himself.

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln8’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln9’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

JOSEPH’S FAITH

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln10’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

Mary gets a lot of due credit for being Jesus’ mother because of her exceptional purity and submission. Let’s not forget, however, what a major figure Joseph, Jesus’ adopted father, was. Think about everything he had to deal with. His fiancée comes up to him and announces that she’s pregnant with God’s son. A likely story? No. Virgin birth, you might recall, has never happened before, nor has it happened since. You really can’t blame Joseph for being skeptical at first and planning to “divorce her quietly.” Then he has a dream telling him it’s true, and he believes. It’s one thing for Mary to have perfect faith that she’s carrying God’s baby knowing from experience she’s been a good girl. But Joseph has faith without any proof.

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln11’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln12’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

Then they get married, and we’re told that Joseph “had no union with her” until after Jesus was born. He was so in awe of the miraculous thing happening in his wife that he respectfully waited. Considering Joseph was most likely your typical teenage guy with typical teenage hormones, this was a pretty substantial sacrifice for him to make.

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln13’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln14’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

So then Joseph has another dream telling him to go to Egypt because King Herod wants Jesus dead. Joseph believes. He obeys. He leaves everything familiar and comfortable without any recorded complaining. He had no idea how long he and his little family would have to hide out there or when the next directional dream would come. But he had faith, and because of his faith, prophecies were fulfilled and Jesus was protected. We just have no clue what simple faith and obedience can do.

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln15’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln16’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

JESUS’ BLOODLINE

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln17’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

Jesus’ lineage is a remarkable one. Matthew 1:17 says, “There were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ.” That is so interesting, and here’s why. Jesus was the 42nd generation, which is a multiple of seven, which is understood as one of God’s special numbers. God created the earth in seven days. Loads of Old Testament instructions for worship in the temple involved seven repetitions, and in Revelation, we find seven seals, seven lamp stands, seven stars and so on.

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln18’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln19’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

What’s so fascinating about this is that God is not random. He obviously had a plan for exactly when he wanted His Son to arrive since at least way back in Abraham’s time. And He told Abraham that all nations would be blessed through him. Abraham could have had no idea how far-reaching that blessing would be—that through his bloodline, God Himself would become flesh.

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln20’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln21’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

Another aspect of Jesus’ lineage worth noting is that it contains a prostitute, a Gentile, and a king. Rahab, a prostitute, helped protect the spies who came to scope out the Promised Land, and God rewarded her faith by making her a part of Jesus’ bloodline, proving that He can use those with even the most shameful pasts. Ruth, a Gentile (Moabite), married Rahab’s son, making her a great, great, great, great…grandmother of Jesus as well, early proof that Jesus came to rescue or reclaim everyone—not just the “Chosen People.” And David was Israel’s most known and beloved king. Although Jesus’ actual birth was humble and anything but noble, he was part of a royal bloodline. He was King.

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln22’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln23’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

THE MAGI’S ARRIVAL

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln24’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

These fellows were probably the most unlikely visitors to come see Jesus. They were pagans and foreigners and were coming from outrageously far away. Their entourage was big enough to catch the notice of the king, and their journey probably took them years. One commentary (Bible Gateway) says, “Magi were astrologers from the royal court of the king of Persia (now Iran)…Kings would often send congratulations to new rulers in other realms (empires).”

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln25’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln26’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

Clearly the Magi were expecting to find an earthly king, surrounded by splendor. They went to Herod’s place first to find Jesus. You’d think that when they found Jesus not in a palace but in a humble house, they would have split. But we’re told they bowed down, worshiped Him, and presented Him with expensive gifts. These powerful and wise pagans, who actually practiced a form of divination (fortune-telling) condemned by God, fell down to worship a Jewish baby in a common house in a small town. That is incredible. God demonstrates how nothing is impossible for Him by reaching the most improbable people and using them to demonstrate His Kingship.

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln27’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln28’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

JESUS’ ADVENT/ARRIVAL

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln29’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

Just picture the baby Jesus wrapped up tight and lying in a feeding trough. It smells. It’s saliva-filled. It’s dirty. The chill of night has fallen. Mary and Joseph are far from home, tired and alone. Mary is in a great deal of pain. No family and friends are there to welcome their new child. The God of the universe has been transformed into a helpless, fussing baby. God came to earth. That is most amazing!

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln30’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

var curDiv = document.getElementById(‘ln31’);
curDiv.innerHTML = convert2url(curDiv.innerHTML);
var links = curDiv.getElementsByTagName(‘a’);
for(var i = links.length; i >= 0; –i) {
if(links[i]) links[i].innerHTML = links[i].innerHTML.substr(0,30) + “…”;
}

Let us continue to be amazed, be filled with wonder, and worship Him. And in the process be transformed…

JE # 119 – Si Marky Cielo(1988-2008) at Ang Buhay-Kabataan

Disyembre 8, 2008

By Kuya Ronald

Kasabay ng pagdiriwang sa tagumpay ni Manny Pacquiao sa kaniyang laban kay De La Hoya, ginulantang rin ni Marky ang lahat sa kaniyang hindi inaasahang pagpanaw. Natagpuan siyang patay ng kaniyang ina sa kaniyang kuwarto sa kanilang tahanan sa Antipolo, alas-6 ng umaga ng December 7.

Pinahanga ni Marky ang buong sambayanan sa pagkapanalo niya bilang unang Igorot na sumali sa StarStruck na naging Ultimate Sole Survivor pa ng StarStruck Batch 3! Bagaman sinasabi ng iba na hindi siya kasing-guwapo ng mga tipikal na teenage heartthrobs, pinabilib niya ang lahat sa kaniyang talento sa pagsayaw. Lumutang rin ang kaniyang talento sa drama nang gumanap siya ng iba’t ibang papel sa mga telenovela at fantaserye ng GMA-7 katulad ng  Encantadia, Fantastikids, Bakekang, Asian Treasures, Boys Next Door, Kaputol ng Isang Awit, and Codename: Asero. Ngunit mas nakilala siya sa kaniyang pagganap bilang si Green Zaido sa fantaserye na Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan. Naiwan niya ang isang programa na La Lola at ang kaniyang trabaho bilang main-stay sa variety show na SOP.

Ang pagpanaw ni Marky ay nagpapaalala sa atin na ang ating buhay sa daigdig ay pansamantala lamang (James 4:14, Psalm 90:5). Young  people should never boast of their energy and youthfulness. Death can come anytime. Ang tanong: Handa ba tayong harapin ang kamatayan?

The Bible declares that we must start to remember our Creator in the days of our youth (Ecclesiastes 12:1). Huwag na nating hintayin pa na tayo ay tubuan ng puting buhok bago natin ialay ang ating buhay sa Panginoon. It is appointed unto all men to die once, and then God’s judgment begins (Hebrew 9:27). Never leave this world without repenting of your sins and accepting Christ in your heart. Ito ang pinakadakilang mensahe na kailanganh seryosohin ng lahat ng kabataan.
