I Rejoiced in the Lord Greatly!

“But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:10-13 KJV.

This is the 272nd blog since my testimony came out. It has been 9 months since I publicly declared my love for the Father and His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ and their Holy Spirit. And my love for them continues to grow stronger. I am settled in the knowledge that the only true God is love and that He has indeed given His Son.

I rejoiced greatly because God has provided through these perilous times. His Spirit has comforted me through the light of His Word. His Wisdom had penetrated the dark corners of my thoughts to fully trust and obey His way and will.

I rejoiced greatly because my family is healthy and with me. I learned that time with them is always priceless and precious more than anything else in the world. I am grateful that I can be with them in these closing hours of the world.

I rejoiced greatly because of you and your continued trust and confidence in the work God has placed in my heart. Words are not enough to give thanks. But I will say thank you so much. I will give my utmost for this message and my all for the glory of our Father through Jesus Christ.

There was a suggestion and I noted to share with you now that for our regular Zoom Sabbath meeting at 11am starting next week will divide our hours into two: namely the first hour will be for Sabbath Study of Revelation, which I pray someone can help me lead and the second hour will be for the preaching of the Word.

I rejoiced greatly because I was able to do the vocation that I love and that is to preach the Word. I stand in awe that God had allowed me to continue my ministry through these unprecedented times.

It is cloudy outside from where I am writing this blog and I could hear the birds tweeting. Our Father took care of them and I am sure He will take care of us.

The attitude of Paul is worth emulating and imitating. He was contented in whatever circumstances. Content in a sense of peace that Christ is the Son of God. That Christ is sufficient. That Christ is real. Our Father’s love is in His Son. And that Christ will do and fill our lack if we ask Him. Having exercised faith which leads us to be content. Thus, joy unseen by others but readily felt is experienced.

I will continue to carry on my task with or without. I must not falter nor be discouraged. I should not depend on what man can do but what God our Father has done. I will give my utmost for the glory of the Father and His Son and their Holy Spirit.

These things can be done only through Christ. Knowing Christ. Loving Christ. Experiencing Christ. Changed by Him. Loved by Him and Strengthened by Him.

Then we can rejoice greatly. It is worth sharing1

I have Zoom meetings tonight with our Australian group and Philippines group. I will see you tomorrow via Zoom at 11am US Eastern Daylight Saving Time. Then another Zoom meeting by 7:00pm. Do not forget our prayer meeting every Wednesday too.

Starting tomorrow night 7:00-9:00pm I will be on Zoom for a “Camp Meeting.” It will run for a week.

Have a wonderful preparation day.


EG White and the SDA pioneers rejected the trinity doctrine, Sunday sacredness, and other unscriptural teachings. They believed in the One True God and His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ and their Holy Spirit. They published this truth in their Fundamental Principles of 1872 and 1889. They have no creed except the Scriptures alone. EG White never changed this Biblical SDA faith. She died in 1915.


I fully appreciate your support and prayers for this Ministry. Thank you so much.

Sincerely in the Blessed Hope.
