True Happiness According to the Scriptures

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA

True Happiness According to the Scriptures

    Happy is the man who finds, and the man who gains understanding . . . . her ways are the ways of pleasantness, and all her ways are peace . . . .and happy are all who retain her(see Proverbs 3: 13-18, NKJV.)

HAPPY NEW YEAR! But how do we make this really happen? Is there fail-proof formula? By what metric do we measure this specific happiness’ index? In what meaningful sense will 2018 really be new? How did we start it beginning New Year’s Eve, i.e., by sunset of January 31 of the 1017?

Was it “peaceful and quiet with family members,” as the pleasant pharmacy tech at Loma Linda Community Pharmacy told me yesterday or like the world celebrates with a super-boosted adrenaline trip from a sugar high and other popular boosters through to past midnight, winding up with a nasty headache and a downer “rainy days and Mondays” feeling —into the very first day of the New Year?  “A journey of a thousand miles [or a year] begins with the first step.” Read more

Thanksgiving Thoughts Even As The Tumultuous Year 2017 Wears Away

 THANKSGIVING THOUGHTS EVEN AS THE TUMULTUOUS YEAR 2017 WEARS AWAY

The God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him: the eye of your understanding be enlightened. Ephesians 1: 17, 18, KJV. [This is my earnest wish and prayer for you!]

I missed preparing and sending to “Kuya” Charles Fegarido for (possible) posting on the Cyberlink the FMM for the 17th of this month due to human incapacitation. I apologize even for that failure.

David reminds all—both high and mighty as we sadly read about their graphic downfall and humiliation in today’s overloaded information systems, and to all “small and great, rich or poor, free and slave”:  “As a farther pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him, for He knows out frame; He remembers that we are dust. As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children’s children, to such as keep His covenant, and to those who remember to do them.” Psalms 103: 13-18.

The Mysteries of the Seven Churches, Stars, and Golden Candlesticks

 Biblical Numerology: NUMBER SEVEN – Part 9 
The Mysteries of the Seven Churches, Stars, and Golden Candlesticks
 
    Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this. The mystery of the seven starts which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lamp stands (candlesticks, KJV). The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lamp stands which you saw are the seven churches. Revelation 1: 19, 20 N.K.J.V.
 
By nature, whether in the prelapsarian (see Eve’s curiosity for the forbidden mysterious tree and its fruit) but definitely much more in the postlapsarian nature, human beings are magnetized and even mesmerized by things and occurrences that appear strange and sound mystical. “It’s magic,” as they say. As kids we loved to be regaled with fairy tales and spooky stories whether folklore, embellished local yarns or imported ones like Cinderella, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, etc. We never seemed to outgrow it, sad to say. Technology advances has rendered old spiritualistic ideas and mediums even more hypnotically alluring, as in a fatal attraction, because they are ridiculously lucrative as well.

Four Angels still Holding Back the Four Winds: How long?

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER FOUR & FORTY– Part XII

Four Angels still Holding Back the Four Winds: How long?

 

     I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, . . . .saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. Revelation 7: 2, 3, Authorized Version.

     “Four mighty angels are still holding the four winds of the earth. Terrible destruction is forbidden to come in full. The accidents by land and by sea; the loss of life, steadily increasing, by storm, by tempest, by railroad disaster, by conflagration; the terrible floods, the earthquakes, and the winds will be the stirring up of nations to one deadly combat, while the angels hold the four winds, forbidding the terrible power of Satan to be exercised in its fury until the servants of God are sealed in their foreheads.” – Ellen G.  White, Review & Herald (RH), June 7, 1887.

Biblical Numerology: NUMBER TWO – Part XXI

THE TWO WITNESSES OF REVELATION CHAPTER 11- Part II

This writer’s attention was called by Professor Manuel Fauni to last week’s FMM (January 23 issue) wherein I wrote in the last sentence: “The seven last plagues (Rev. 15: 1, 8, 16: 1-21), are also called ‘the four winds of the earth,’ Rev. 7: 1-3, ‘the wine of the wrath of God unmingled with mercy,’ (Rev. 14: 9) ‘the wrath of Him who sits on the throne and of the Lamb ’(Rev. 6: 16, 17).”

Thank you. I stand corrected as it was prematurely added to the mix. Following sacred chronology of yet-unfulfilled prophecy no longer fixed by prophetic time after 1844, the 7 last plagues are God’s “righteous judgments” upon the finally impenitent (Rev. 15: 4), administered by the 7 angels John saw coming out of the temple of God in heaven. (chs. 15: 5, 5, 6: 16: 1). Read more
