Of Faith, Understanding and Acceptance

I am 34 years old now in the flesh, Born on the 30th of November 1975, the 2nd child of my parents whom both belong to a poor families, back in our province Camarines Norte. My grandfathers is a farmer on a father side and a carpenter on my mother side. But my parents did not inherit any properties from both of them, except for a one carabao use for farming but eventually we sold it to put-up a small Sari-Sari Store ( A small grocery store within the barangay/village). I am on my primary 3 level that time the year is 1983, our small grocery is doing well we sell fruits, clothes, drinks and wines, rice, can goods etc. and it draw envious to some villagers.

My mother is very diligent and hardworking she takes care of everything including teaching us on our home works, the same goes with my father collecting rice share from different farmers. Until time that rumors spread to our community from a male mute claiming he saw my mother going out with another man through a sign language. And that incident triggers my fathers to jealousy and also marks the new chapter in our life. Our small grocery went on bankrupt to the point that we need to settle for another village. My father always argue with my mother even ending up of hurting her. This time my mother made a decision and leave my father to work abroad as a domestic helper in Hongkong for almost 15 years, all for her perseverance and sacrifice just to complete our education. I was 9 years old, living without our mother; we prepare our food, wash our clothes and do our home works by our self, our father is always tired doing almost anything for our living and in many times drunk.

Remembering my mother back then she was a very strict disciplinarian and also very religious. Every night we kneel down and pray with her sometimes reciting the rosary in front of our altar. She always remind us to call Jesus and Mother Mary when we encounter danger. Certainly theirs a lot of unforgettable memories living with our parents, and I love my mother so much. She remain as a Roman Catholic today it makes her feel very mad knowing we converted to Christianity at the start but with God grace witnessing the big changes in our life she accepted our religion.

What makes my mind to shift and embrace Christianity my answer is straight forward "nothing", nor anyone had ever convince me or influenced me. Some people on their search for the the only Church of God in the bible affiliated thyself to a different religion proclaiming they are Christians but the inner man inside them will lead them to discern that their doctrines cannot satisfy the feeling of completeness, happiness, contentment, acceptance, forgiving and the unexplainable feeling of belonging to a loving kindness, guidance, understanding and merciful God.

Psalms 136:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Romans 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I started hearing bro. Eli's preaching on SBN-21 a television network in the Philippines. He speak bravely and deliberate some regards him as boastful but I did not notice such, I just amaze how he answered any questions of faith and practically basing all his answer in the bible, my assumption is: its all scripted, just like a stage play but he proven himself true when I have attended to one of his bible exposition.

Today I'm working to one of the construction firm here in Singapore and I could not consider myself up to this certain moment in my life that I am rich. And thru His mercy I was able to cough-up to all the trials and needs of my everyday life. Through Bro. Eli Soriano God taught us to be thankful for everything even to the time of laughter and tears.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

This doctrine of Christ will prove the genuinity of the Church of God for theirs no other like it.
By this member in the church of God give thanks even we lost our job, our love one died, or suffer accident, sickness etc., it sounds foolishness to others but we know the reason behind.

Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?

This feeling of happiness hearing the words of God from our preacher is marvelous no amount of words can discribe it satisfies your soul, it pierces to your heart and you cannot resist or contest its truthfulness. When I have question at the back of mind, when I felt I have done or committed a sin, when I was lonely and feeling down. I just listen all over again to bro. Eli on the his internet broadcast. And every time he opened topics for our worship and thanksgiving service I feel God is answering me. Just put Him above all things in your life and you will learn the secrets of living without worrying of tomorrow.

Phillipians 4:12 I know how to be abased, and I know also how to abound: in everything and in all things have I learned the secret both to be filled and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in want.

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

Living in this world today having understood our Lord Jesus Christ teaching we members of the Church of God Internationale are not questioning the Mighty Creature why there is war, famine, earthquake, poverty natural calamities etc. for all this thing are signs that should happen, and we are waiting now for just one and last sign The Great Tribulation. (ask for more details). We know where the world is leading to,we know how to deal with it and more we walk not in vain.
Matthew 24:21 for then shall be great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be.

1 Corinthians 9:26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

Salvation and eternal life and the chance to behold the beauty the assurance of the Lord for those who will endure until the end, for Christian's will be given to tribulation and persecution but we afraid not of death and we should not fear death. Jesus Christ had overcome death

2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

1 Thessalonians 3:4 For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know

Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.

Romans 6:9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

As for my self writing this blog in English which I've found in many difficulties really takes times I'm a man o f many insecurities and very shy, and up to now I haven't get rid from my inferiority complex. I'm a very much private person, I don't enjoy socializing with other people, I always felt out of place, many times even I wanted to I just don't know how to relate and interact with people. Handling a conversation and a sense of humor is not on my capabilities. So what motivates me to spent hours writing a blog like this? It is by Faith, faith that somehow along the way this article will come across to anyone using the Internet and by doing so might have the chance to listen or watch our preachers web broadcast and be able to understand the whole doctrine of Christ; and if the Lord open their hearts a chance to become a member of Church of God in the bible.

Christians will not be judge according to their works but by duty on how they honestly fulfilled it.

Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

How the Christians should oath to behave having fulfilled their duties; the bible says:

Luke 17:10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.

There are still things and circumstances in my life that sometimes I admit that it's quite hard to understand until I actually realize the effect that it causes when its all done, most of the time all I just utter thanks be to God. And I do believe that what happen to our family back then was not purely coincidence.

Spirit is Life

I found this simple model over the net illustrating The four field of Intelligences.
Again be reminded that it only reflects four field of intelligences as they may be more than what on this figure can be found.

This illustration is from article of Cindy Wigglesworth "Spiritual Intelligence Why its Important?"

Defining Spiritual Intelligence:

Spiritual Intelligence as define by by Cindy Wigglesworth
President Conscious Pursuits, Inc. (CPI)“ is the ability to behave with Compassion and Wisdom while maintaining inner and outer peace (equanimity) regardless of the circumstances.” Compassion and Wisdom together form the manifestation of Love. “Behave” is important because it focuses on how well we maintain our center, stay calm, and actually treat others with compassion and wisdom. The statement of “regardless of the circumstances” shows that we can maintain our peaceful center and loving behaviors even under great stress. This is what we admire in our spiritual leaders.

Now considering the teaching of Christ in the bible What is the Importance of the Spirit

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Romans 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

I'm not worthy to further discuss and explain this verses for there are more appropriate verses that can be found in the bible. My only point is to transcribe the fundamental awareness to anyone who can read this article about the important of spirituality and that spirit really excess: even The Spirit God Has a Spirit , as we live in this present world we called Earth which shall wax old as described in

Isaiah 51:6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

Revelation 20 : 11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

Defining Emotional Intelligence Quotient (EQ)
Emotional Intelligence (EI), often measured as an Emotional Intelligence Quotient (EQ), describes an ability, capacity, or skill to perceive, assess, and manage the emotions of one's self, of others, and of groups. It is a relatively new area of psychological research.

Defining Intelligence Quotient(IQ)
A measure of a person's intelligence as indicated by an intelligence test; the ratio of a person's mental age to their chronological age (multiplied by 100)

Is this two field of intelligent which could be acquired by any man living in this world could last for a lifetime and would it guaranty them eternal life after death? The bible said, as it written in the following verses.

1 Corinthians 1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

1 Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

What I'm trying to perceive to other's mind is the fact that materials things in this world including our very own selves will come to and end our beauty, intelligence, wealth, glory and honor, including our memory, our promises will only up to the grave. Our body will turn back to dust but the spirit that within us will not die. And when the time comes that God will revive the our body and united it with the spirit to receive judgement

Ezekiel 37:6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Revelation 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

But death can be overcome as what our Lord Jesus Christ did and eternal life as what the humanity want to acquire even to the times of the Egyptian can be achieve thru following Christ and the first step might be the spiritual awareness in the words of God.

Luke 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

The Illustration above is correct Spiritual intelligence (EQ) especially spiritual awareness in the words of God is primary and should be above all things, Intelligence and wisdom of this word including wealth and power can lead you to eternal damnation; but with the subjection to God doctrine you can turn all this things to Holiness that would bring you to a sweet salvation.

1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Things which eye saw not, and ear heard not, And which entered not into the heart of man, Whatsoever things God prepared for them that love him.

Scape to Earth, Is There Another?

Notwithstanding the advent of the most powerful telescope that mankind ever created The Hubble Space Telescope which is one of the largest and most versatile, and is well-known as both a vital research tool and a public relations boon for astronomy. Astronomer still yet to discover possibilities within the solar system or even to another galaxy within the known universe which can sustain life other than the Earth.
In this present time there have been many warnings of the depletion of our natural resources including an article written on July 9, 2002 by Reuters’ reporter Robert Evans that projects by 2050 due to western society's high consumption levels, it adds that the extra planets (the equivalent size of Earth) will be required by the year 2050 as existing resources are exhausted.
But the biggest question under this present situation with our planet running out of room and resources:
Is There Another Earth?

In addition to alarming and escalating fear of mankind over the Earth present situation the NASA has on going annual design contest about Space Settlement. A space settlement is a home in orbit. Rather than live on the outside of a planet, settlers will live on the inside of gigantic spacecraft.

This is a interior view of spacecraft from an artist impression

"I know that humans will colonize the solar system and one day go beyond." This is a statement from Mike Griffin, a former NASA Administrator.

Some scientist in the past has displayed amount of recognition of the powerful Creator and how He created and design the universe like that of Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton and many more. Despite all this scientist magnificent credentials contributing to what life we have today, I still can't figure out why still some astrological studies that do not conform to the general principles that God created the universe as it manifested thru their belief like discovering another earth or putting a space settlement on its orbit by all this they are actually neglecting what was written in the Bible about the earth, the moon, the stars and the universe as a whole.

A proof from the bible is written in Psalm 19:1-3

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the expanse proclaims His handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor are there words; their voice is not heard.” Read More

And is the universe ever expanding? The book of Job 38:4, it says:

“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell if you have understanding! Who has set its measurements, for you know? Or who has stretched the line on it? On what are its bases sunk, or who cast its cornerstone…”

Two Famous scientist who believe In the Mighty Creator of the universe.

Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
Einstein is probably the best known and most highly revered scientist of the twentieth century, and is associated with major revolutions in our thinking about time, gravity, and the conversion of matter to energy (E=mc2). And he recognized the impossibility of a non-created universe.
A famous saying of his was "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."

Isaac Newton (1642-1727)
In optics, mechanics, and mathematics, Newton was a figure of undisputed genius and innovation. In all his science (including chemistry) he saw mathematics and numbers as central. In his system of
physics, God is essential to the nature and absoluteness of space. In Principia he stated, "The most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion on an intelligent and powerful Being."

Thus anyone in the earth including those inhabitants of heaven can be spare from the wrath of God?

Isaiah 13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

It is clearly said God will not only shake the earth but also the heavens, and if said so, is this dream of mankind to put up a space settlement rational, why they don't just applied that space technology here on earth? Can we claim that we are far more intelligent that God by this notion of requiring another earth in the future due to mankind excessive consumption, is that mean God with all His glory, power and wisdom miscalculated the size of the earth. Remember that God is an exact God.

Health Matter ( I Am What I Eat )

Let's live our life in a healthy way, the Christians way

3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

This blog about health is inspired by non other than our beloved Bro. Eli Soriano do visit his site

If you are a kind of person that takes into considerations sensible things whether of a fact, scientific findings, medical breakthrough or even just a belief
especially Christian beliefs to matter into not only of your own life but for those whom you loves as well then you found a stream of life's sensibility. This man I would definitely say is not speaking in vain whatsoever his doing he does it by faith and you will find yourself little by little interested to hear his voice preaching or reading his articles. He preaches not only the better life after death but even to this present dispensation more specifically about Heath and not only health he speaks also almost everything about general knowledge and his doing it exactly when its needed during the times his discussing or explaining about certain topics in the bible expositions, on the Internet broadcasting and most specially about salvation.
Please click on this link to learn more.
We sometimes overlook our self and simply reacting on the things were doing or what we feel base on what our body needed in order to continue our responsibilities in our works, in our family and to other activity as it purposes us to be in our day to day lives, and we paid not so much attention on what we are eating as long as it satisfied our stomach and our taste buds and were feeling strong and healthy that's it we can eat what we want. But is that what we are going to used to be? In the Bible is that what God's want us to be? In Medicine is that what we are supposed to be? I Remember this joke back in our country Philippines that if you eat lots of pork, fatty and oily foods you will never grew old, because you will die young .
This link provides the heath benefits of Fruit Juice fasting.

I remember when I was at primary level, studying from a primary school which is very far from our home and we used to just walk back and forth for there is no means of transportation back then. During breaktime 12:oo -1:00 pm instead of going back home we just climb to some starapple tree inside the campus and having it as a lunch, sometimes our kind classmates offer us to join them, they are quite lucky they have mother to prepare for their lunch pack. Living in a province which have a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables made me a fruit lover and I can say up to now If were be ask to choice between a cake or ice cream against a fresh and sweet guava I would prepare the fruit without hesitation. Knowing the benefits of alkaline in our body I even subjected myself for a one month Juice fasting I'm not fat or sick but i feel great after finishing it. Now I have a better control of what to eat and a much better moderation's on almost food regardless of how delicious and mouth watering they are. Remember you are what you eat, if you eat the same kind of foods a lot, and taken for granted the appropriate balance diet that should be needed.

I leave you by this quotation from Ben Franklin " An Ounce Of Prevention Is Better Than A Pound Of Cure"

How Aunthentic The Bible Is?

A page from the earliest surviving Bible, of which another fragment has been discovered in Egypt

Christians are the most intelligent inhabitant of this world spiritually speaking. Why and How?

Lets take a look and study the only basis and foundation of Christians belief and doctrines " The Bible" How authentic it is? Personally I didn't know much about the ways and details of how this book are been written. I have read and finish the whole books of the new testament, I was not a Christian then, I'm a member of Roman Catholic Church. I remember attending mass to different churches in different places back in my country and go back home with a sampaguita flowers for my Sto. Nino ( A graven image of child Jesus ).

That was a summer vacation then, and I have no place to go and practically doing nothing at home when I started reading the Bible's new testament. Since then I got interested in reading it just like a romantic novel of love, where some can't wait to read and finish it chapter by chapter and while on the course of reading it I haven't notice the tears flowing from my eyes I can't exactly explain why but since then I've stop attending to any catholic mass again ever.But many notwithstanding the facts and authenticity of it remains doubtful about the scripture

Bible: The Most Misused Book of all Time. ( Click to read more)

This link provide informations about The Sweet Evidence of the Authenticity of the Bible

The Bible: A brief history

Although earlier fragments of the Bible have survived the passage of time, the Codex Sinaiticus is so significant because it is by far the most complete. The full text that has been discovered so far contains virtually all of the New Testament and about half of the Old Testament.

But whenever an ancient version of the holy book is found, it often raises questions about the evolution of the Bible and how close what we read today is to the original words of Christ and his early followers.

The Old Testament was written largely in Hebrew (with the odd Aramaic exception) but it is by no means a homogenous entity. Protestant and more recent Catholic versions of the Bible tend to use the Masoretic Text, a variation of the Hebrew Old Testament that was copied, edited and distributed by Jewish Masorete scholars between the 7th and 11th centuries. Earlier Catholic translations and the Greek and Russian Orthodox churches use the Septuagint, an ancient Greek version of the Hebrew text that was translated between the 3rd and 1st centuries BC.

In studying the early history of the New Testament, historians have about 5,650 handwritten copies in Greek on which they can draw, many of which are distinctly different. As Christianity consolidated its power through the first millennia, the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John came to form the key elements of the New Testament.

You want to know who holds the power of God and the wisdom of God in the bible. and the wisdom you need to acquire to live in harmony with this world. It's just a question away

The Christians Way

Christians are the most intelligent inhabitant of this world.
That is true. In what aspects? I would say in terms of
Spirituality and awareness to the things of this present times.

Romans 12: 2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

And how they are able to acquire such awareness?
Members of Church of God International as it is written in the bible

are being taught about the complete doctrines of Christianity as it
was written in the bible nothing more nothing less that's what makes them
away beyond compare to the other organizations proclaiming to be Christians

I Timothy 3:151 if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God's household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth.

2 Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Majority of us believe in the existence of the almighty God even the Atheist they just denying to acknowledge it. And most of us are aware of heaven and hell, the life after death.

A non-Christian thought of the things of this world, his mind settings are primarily about almost anything in this present world can offers like wellness, and material wealth which would perish
I Corinthians 7:31 those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away.
Matthew 6:19 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.

A Christian thought and hope of the things that is to come in the new heaven and new earth

2 Corinthians 4:18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
1 Corinthians 2:9
However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him"
Revelation 21:1-4
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

It is wise to have hope and Christians hopes for eternal life, lets say for example that its not actually true that there is life after death in heaven, I would still definitely considered it as an intelligent choice, Why? Taking risk is better than just do nothing at all, its like a ship journey towards the middle of the ocean that didn't know where it is heading to.

To Learn more about Christianity and how blessed they are, learn it from the most sensible preacher in our time Bro Eli. Soriano

Levir Al vel Legis ( By Aleister Crowley )

Aleister Crowley (pronounced /ˈkroʊli/; 12 October 1875 – 1 December 1947), born Edward Alexander Crowley, and also known as both Frater Perdurabo and The Great Beast, was an influential English occultist, mystic and ceremonial magician, responsible for founding the religious philosophy of Thelema. He was a member of the esoteric Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, as well as a co-founder of the A∴A∴ and eventually a leader of Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.). He is known today for his magical writings, especially The Book of the Law, the central sacred text of Thelema, although he also wrote widely on other subjects, including a large amount of fiction and poetry

The writing
Crowley claimed to have written The Book of the Law on 8, 9 and 10 April 1904 (though his diaries and published accounts alternatively list April 1 and April 7, 8 and 9) between the hours of noon and 1:00 pm, in the flat where he and his new wife were staying for their honeymoon, which he described as being near the Boulak Museum in a fashionable European quarter of Cairo, let by the firm Congdon & Co. The apartment was on the ground floor, and the "temple" was the drawing room.

Crowley described the encounter in detail in The Equinox of the Gods, saying that as he sat at his desk in Cairo, the voice of Aiwass came from over his left shoulder in the furthest corner of the room. This voice is described as passionate and hurried, and was "of deep timbre, musical and expressive, its tones solemn, voluptuous, tender, fierce or aught else as suited the moods of the message. Not bass—perhaps a rich tenor or baritone." Further, the voice was devoid of "native or foreign accent".

Crowley also got a "strong impression" of the speaker's general appearance. Aiwass had a body composed of "fine matter," which had a gauze-like transparency. Further, he "seemed to be a tall, dark man in his thirties, well-knit, active and strong, with the face of a savage king, and eyes veiled lest their gaze should destroy what they saw. The dress was not Arab; it suggested Assyria or Persia, but very vaguely."

The Book of the Law is heavy on poetry, but light on theology. It generally encourages a libertine approach to life, the use of "strange drugs" and various obscure adjurations like "Let my servants be few & secret" and "Choose ye an island!"

Whether mystically transmitted or an act of creative excess, the Book of the Law is a remarkable document. In cryptic and poetic terms, the book lays out a kind of scriptural framework for a spiritual path called Thelema, the Greek word for "will." The most famous line in the book, while derivative of previous spiritual writings, would forever be associated with Crowley:

"Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law."

Aleister Crowley is surely the most famous Satanist and black magician of the twentieth-century.

In 1909, Crowley began publishing the Equinox to spread his ideas.
Aleister Crowley called himself "The Great Beast", a reference to The New Testament's description of the Anti-Christ. In his masses he used cocaine, opium and hash.

Crowley’s philosophy was as follows (which is the exact same philosophy of all Witches and Satanists today):

“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.”

“Lust, enjoy all things of sense and rapture. Fear not that any God shall deny thee for this.”

“I do not wish to argue that the doctrines of Jesus, they and they alone, have degraded the world to its present condition. I take it that Christianity is not only the cause but the symptom of slavery” (Crowley, The World’s Tragedy, p. xxxix).

“That religion they call Christianity; the devil they honor they call God. I accept these definitions, as a poet must do, if he is to be at all intelligible to his age, and it is their God and their religion that I hate and will destroy” (Crowley, The World’s Tragedy, p. xxx).

Crowley studied Buddhism and Hindu yoga, following in the footsteps of Helena Blavatsky, and did much to popularize these in the West.

Some of the bands/musicians influenced by Aleister Crowley

A number of rock musicians have been fascinated by the persona and ideas of Aleister Crowley, and several have made reference to him or his work in their own.

Popular music groups who have made passing references to Crowley include:

The Beatles, who placed him among dozens of other influential figures on the cover of their concept album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

David Bowie, whose song "Quicksand", featured on his album Hunky Dory, makes the reference "I'm closer to the Golden Dawn, immersed in Crowley's uniform of imagery..."

Numerous heavy metal rockers have incorporated Crowley in their lyrics, though their interpretations more often follow the tabloid "Satanist" image of Crowley and not his actual writings. Such lyrics dwell on Crowley's sometime use of Christian eschatological imagery such as the number 666.

Ozzy Osbourne in his solo album Blizzard of Ozz released the song Mr. Crowley which was about Crowley's struggles and beliefs.

Ministry have also referred to Crowley in lyrics and sampled his voice on the track "Golden Dawn" from their Land of Rape and Honey album. The band reiterated in their album Psalm 69, in the eponym song the last lines "The way to succeed or the way to suk eggs" are borrowed from the Book of lies.
Iron Maiden, also made references to Crowley in many of their songs (most obviously "Moonchild", on the "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son" album);
Celtic Frost released a (now classic) album named "To Mega Therion". Crowley had adopted this title, which means "the Great Beast".
Carcass (band) repeats "Hate is the law, love under will", a slight variation on the phrase from Liber AL vel Legis in the song "Firm Hand" on the album Swansong.
Behemoth: a record of theirs is entitled Thelema 6.

Tiamat, a Swedish metal group, in their album "Prey" with songs like "Light in Extension" (a direct quote from Crowley), and "The Pentagram" where Crowley was directly quoted from one of his recorded lectures.
Paradise Lost and Finnish band Babylon Whores. In his film House of 1000 Corpses, Rob Zombie used an actual recording of Crowley himself reading his poem "The Poet".
Perhaps most curiously, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page owned Crowley's Loch Ness estate, Boleskine House, from 1971 to 1992. It is also said that on some pressings of the Led Zeppelin III album, one or more Aleister Crowley quotes are inscribed into the runoff matrix of the vinyl (the space between the last groove and the label.) This may be a misinterpretation of the signatures left by master cutter George Peckham.
Page also composed the original music for Lucifer Rising, a film by Kenneth Anger heavily influenced by Crowley.
Mick Jagger composed the soundtrack to another Crowley inspired Kenneth Anger film, 'Invocation of my Demon Brother'.
Crowley is the old man pictured on the cover of Led Zeppelins fourth album (IV, Zoso, Runes etc).
Former Pantera frontman Philip Anselmo used the alias "Anton Crowley", (In reference to Anton LaVey from "Satanic Bible" fame, and Aleister Crowley), to avoid lawsuits while recording for his many side-projects.
John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers) is an admirer of Crowley, and the songs, '666' , 'I'm Around' , 'Emptiness' and 'Look On' (from his solo album, 'Inside of Emptiness') are all inspired by Crowley.

The following information is from WIKIPEDIA.COM...

Aleister Crowley is no doubt an occultist or in a more correct way a certified Cult leader who deceived his disciples thru malicious and inhumane ideology and perverted interpretation of the holy scripture. His philosophies never really made such an remarkable contribution in terms of integrity to humanity as a whole except for those of his kind who seek for theme self things more than they are able to think of and was victimized by the fruitfully poetic erroneous inherited or implanted teaching and beliefs like that of Scientology famous for its institutionalized mockery of God and Christ.

His influential and mystique appeal to the musicians and artist up to this present time is undeniably true, but certainly understandable musicians are by far always cling to an image of addiction to bad habits like smoking drinking, drugs and woman's, overwhelmed by success open resulted to self-centered belief, But even though that malicious and erroneous belief acquired to some other philosophies particularly that of Aleister Crowley inputted in a lyrical composition of an musicians or artist this thing never really matters most to the audience. As for myself lyrical composition is an important part of the song as a whole but melody plays the main part that makes people in love with it, and take not into mush consideration the lyrics intention. An exception maybe for the love song and ballads?
Its funny to learn this man proclaiming himself the "Great Beast" while on the Bible where he acquired this name the beast is actually is in symbolical form.

Book Of The Names Of The Dead (Necronomicon)

The Necronomicon is a fictional “prop,” invented by the American writer Howard Phillips Lovecraft
HOWARD PHILIPS LOVECRAFT (1890-1937) Was not an occultist of any kind, but just a writer of short horror stories who was unknown in his day.
As mentioned, far from being a believer in magic Lovecraft was, in fact, an atheist!

Lovecraft was often asked about the veracity of the Necronomicon, and always answered that it was completely his invention. In a letter to Willis Conover, Lovecraft elaborated upon his typical answer:
Now about the “terrible and forbidden books” — I am forced to say that most of them are purely imaginary. There never was any Abdul Alhazred or Necronomicon, for I invented these names myself. Robert Bloch devised the idea of Ludvig Prinn and his De Vermis Mysteriis, while the Book of Eibon is an invention of Clark Ashton Smith's. Robert E. Howard is responsible for Friedrich von Junzt and his Unaussprechlichen Kulten.... As for seriously-written books on dark, occult, and supernatural themes — in all truth they don’t amount to much. That is why it’s more fun to invent mythical works like the Necronomicon and Book of Eibon.

How Lovecraft conceived the name
"Necronomicon" is not clear — Lovecraft said that the title came to him in a dream. Although some have suggested that Lovecraft was influenced primarily by Robert W. Chambers' collection of short stories The King in Yellow, which centers on a mysterious and disturbing play in book form, Lovecraft is not believed to have read that work until 1927.
Lovecraft wrote that the title, as translated from the Greek language, meant "an image of the law of the dead": nekro νεκρός ("dead"), nomos - νόμος ("law"), eikon - εικών ("image"). Robert M. Price notes that the title has been variously translated by others as "Book of the names of the dead", "Book of the laws of the dead", "Book of dead names" and "Knower of the laws of the dead". S. T. Joshi states that Lovecraft's own etymology is "almost entirely unsound. The last portion of it is particularly erroneous, since -ikon is nothing more than a neuter adjectival suffix and has nothing to do with eikõn (image)." Joshi translates the title as "Book considering (or classifying) the dead."

Giger's most wonderful book of his artwork. his Necronomicon is an oversized and stunning collection of photographs, paintings, and sculptures, as well as interviews, essays, and autobiographical text.

Reinforcing the book's fictionalization, the name of the book's supposed author, Abdul Alhazred, is not even a grammatically correct Arabic name. The name "Abdul" simply means "the worshiper/slave of...". Standing alone, it would make no sense, as Alhazred is not a last name in the Western sense, but a reference to a person's place of birth.

Influence of this book to Music and even Games today
A number of musical pieces have been inspired by Cthulhu and the works in which it appears. Perhaps the most famous such work is Metallica's "The Call of Ktulu".The British black metal band, Cradle of Filth, released "Cthulhu Dawn" in their "Midian" album in 2000.
Morbid Angel
the band's original lyrical themes focused mostly on Satanism, Occultism and anti-Christian subject matter, but from Blessed Are the Sick onward, the lyrics slowly moved toward the ancient Sumerian gods. Much of this is a nod to the Simon Necronomicon, which was influenced by Sumerian mythology as well as the author H. P. Lovecraft

• The Chaosium game Call of Cthulhu features Cthulhu prominently, as might be expected.
• The Dungeons & Dragons sourcebook Deities & Demigods
• The PC/Xbox/PS2 game Max Payne lists Cthulhu as one of the beings invoked by Jack Lupino.
• Munchkin Cthulhu from Steve Jackson Games
• The online game Lost Souls includes Cthulhu as a semi-divine being.
• Cthulhu can be summoned in the Nintendo DS game Scribblenauts.
• In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night there is an enemy called Cthulhu.
• In the Gaia Online related Facebook application Ocean Party a special fish called "Cathulhu" can be earned.

Morbid Angel, A Death Metal band patronizing the book of Necronomicon

As what the creator of this book admittance that this is purely his inventions He actually reveal the truth about his creation and thereby proves any belief that this is written out of Satan's intention. As an atheist Misotheism is a recurrent theme in most of his fiction works. Many of Lovecraft's works are directly or indirectly adversarial to the belief in a loving, protective God
As an horror fiction writer what can you expect from a man who do not believe on the existence of the Almighty Creature instead turn his faith on Physical Science rather than those of the scripture. This book is again for the fools, stupid, and narrow-minded individuals who loves to believed to those teachings, belief and commandments of humans rather than the Creature

Romans 1:21-24

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

Titus 1:10-11
10For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
11Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.

Colossians 2:22
These are all destined to perish with use, because they are based on human commands and teachings

Leviathan ( A Book from Satanic Bible )

The biggest question about this book is " Is this book really inspired by the spirit of Satan? "

The Satanic bible is a collection of essays, composed and compiled in 1969 by Anton LaVey, detailing the basic, fundamental Satanic rituals and ideology. Its proponents regard the Satanic bible as the foundation of the Satanic paradigm, while maintaining that the book is not subject to revision nor interpretation and that no ritual or ideology contrary to what is depicted in the Satanic bible is compatible with Satanism. Note – the vast majority of Satanists do not even believe in the existence of a personal being named Satan. Rather, Satan is a symbol of struggle against a tyrannical God.
The Satanic bible is divided into four books, namely “The Book of Satan,” “The Book of Lucifer,” “The Book of Belial,” and finally “The Book of Leviathan.” It is generally believed that Lavey obtained this hierarchy from “The Book of the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage,” in which the above four demons are said to be the chiefs of hell. Each book addresses a different principle of Satanism, and serves a unique purpose within the book as a whole.

Where did Satan originated from? (The bible have the answer)

Isaiah 14:12-14
12How you have fallen from heaven,
O morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
you who once laid low the nations!
13 You said in your heart,
"I will ascend to heaven;
I will raise my throne
above the stars of God;
I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly,
on the utmost heights of the sacred mountain.
14 I will ascend above the tops of the clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High."

What are the characteristics of Satan, How we get to know his ways? Let the bible speak?

John 8:44 (New International Version)
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Some of the Death metal bands lyrical themes were mainly base on this books like the song leviathan of Sinister. We listen to this kind of music way back 14 years ago and Im still listen to it now and it never really have an impact to my views in life even that days when Im not a member of the Church yet

Death Metal
music this were we express our youthful aggression during our FEU days . Death Metal is one of the underground musical genre not ordinary people would love to hear. We were longhair then and love to hang or attend gig to a very rare Club supporting the underground scene like Club Nu and Yosh Café’. We are on a Band I played Bass Guitar our band name is Agitator we cover songs from Napalm Death, Cadaver and Benedection, we drink redhorse beer and smoke a lot of Ganja ( Marijuana).

Glen Benton Vocalist of the band Deicide

The lyrical themes of death metal often invoke slashed film-stylized violence, but may also extend to topics like Satanism, anti-religion, Occultism, mysticism, philosophy, social commentary. Most of the bands reflects symbolism of pentagram inverted cross and 666 in their albums artwork and even in the band name itself and they believe it is indeed an act of anti-Christ what they did’nt know is in fact they are barking on a wrong tree and they’re just displaying a screaming evidence of ignorance in the Bible and the teaching of Christianity

As a Christian and a Member of Church of God International we are bless and thankful
to the Almighty for giving us a true preacher who truly preach the whole doctrines and the word of God in its entirety as it is written in the bible we can say we are more knowledgeable than any other religious organization that exist today thanks be to God. Therefore I can say as I know Satan characteristics that this Satanic bible is not actually from Satan himself on the principles that he is a god of lies and deceit. He would not do something that will reveal his intentions to humans. Imagine a very frightening creature preaching saying I am Satan this my doctrine the satanic bible read it, believe and be condemned with me in hell. This is not the ways of deception,

this is one way of deceiving

Matthew 7:15 Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

This book is obviously not the best way to deceive people. This is for the stupid and crazy people
who wants to live in a world full of fictional imagination and want to experience the spiritual feeling of black magic, illusions and occultation rituals.

For those who wants to follow Satan and demons this is for you

James 2:19 (New International Version)
You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.

Understanding Human Overpopulation

Human Overpopulation

We are approaching a world population of 7 billion; 100 years ago the world population was barely over 1 billion. Considering the impact of human overpopulation as it relates to war, genocide, extinction of species, pollution, and rapidly diminishing natural resources, of immediate concern fresh water, isn't it time for serious steps to control world population?

Causes of Overpopulation

1. Decline in the Death Rate
2. Rise in the Birth Rate
3. Migration
4. Lack of Education

One of the cause of human overpopulation if not the primary are false religions; initially by attempting to castrate human sexuality, harnessing the pent energy for religious profit, and later by encouraging rampant replication for further religious profit, we need to cut off the head of the consumerism snake: organized false religions.

Given options, it's been statistically proven women with access to and education about family planning limit their offspring based on their economic status. In the modern, First World, urban environments (where populations are in fact trending) women have the option of struggling to survive with children or preventing pregnancy altogether and having a comfortable lifestyle with no progeny. Women from Sydney to Moscow to Tokyo have recognized that economically we've reached population critical mass and have stopped breeding. Global and multi-national organizations recognize that this trend will cause a decline in profits, a shift of power towards labor, and ultimately a complete restructuring of economics towards collectivism via the Internet.

Understanding God's Covenant With Noah

Genesis 9:1 Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.
Genesis 9:7 As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it."
Why these commandment is not intended for our dispensation
When we talk about religious matters there is only one describe as the the most sensible preacher in our time lets try to here it from
Bro. Eli Soriano

This man is no doubt speaks the truth as he base his answer in the Bible as he answer any questions regarding religious queries.

Reality of Religious Influence In A Nation

EU Presses for Immediate Passage of RH Bill in Philippines. A European Union top official in the Philippines, Ambassador Alistair MacDonald, asked Congress to immediately pass the controversial reproductive health bill, saying that the absence of an effective framework for reproductive health is "anti-poor, anti-women, anti-children, and anti-development." "The poor are paying the highest price, both individually and collectively." He said that the EU alls for the effective implementation of a comprehensive national family planning policy, which would promote access to family planning method. In the Philippine House of Representatives, Bill 5043 - or "An Act Providing for a National Policy on Reproductive Health, Responsible Parenthood and Population Development" - is currently pending. The Catholic Church has opposed the measure, saying it would promote abortion. May 14, 2009 GMA News TV

Mother Teresa's Crisis of Faith

The Missionaries of Charity feeds 500,000 families, treats 90,000 leprosy patients and educates 2,000 children each year in Kolkata alone. Mother Teresa's work on behalf of the poor in India and around the world earned her a Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. She died four years ago this week at the age of 87.

When I read about the doubts of mother Teresa on the Internet one thing immediately rose-up to my imagination with a spiritual feeling that i can't really express in words, and I'm not certain if it's mercy for her feeling; or on the situation she have gone thru all the days that she had felt and doubt the existence of Almighty God. And did you know what's that question is?

How could possibly anybody do such a great devotion of serving others thru charity without the real essence of it in their hearts? The fact that mother Teresa spent most of his time doing charity means it really lives in her heart, because you cannot endure for a long period time doing something you do not love or does not matter to you. And with the manifestation of great love on behalf of the poor in his country which I think is guided by or given by God then how could she probably doubt the existence of the Almighty.

My conclusion is, maybe his understanding of the true God in the bible is not so vast which is understandable because of his age and practically busy doing charity work and less time reading the bible and its fair to think of this way because we really never knew what is in his heart during that time, seeing a lot of children in famine and sickness might have been contributed to her thoughts. And there is a more appropriate and deep explanation at the back of my mind by I'm not on the rightful position to expound those thing for it concerns a more sensitive matters of faith in case you may want to enlighten more this site may help
please visit Truthcaster, The Old Path

If anyone know and understand how great is the love of God in the bible and why there is rich and poor, and in hunger and in abundance, why there is evil and good and why many things happens in this world that we live in that's seems to be unjust, but knowing His teachings, our understanding on all his creations, judgement and righteousness we will never, never doubt the existence of God.

Psalm 145:17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in his works

ABC PartyList (A must for Philippine local goverment)

Local Government
For administrative purposes the Philippine government is divided into regions, provinces, and chartered cities. Regions include the National Capital Region, encompassing the Manila metropolitan area; the Cordillera Administrative Region, a semiautonomous region of upland tribal groups in northern Luzon; and the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), encompassing four provinces in Mindanao. The ARMM is a quasi self-governing region that was formed in 1989. It has an elected legislative assembly and is headed by a governor with limited executive powers. Provinces are headed by governors, and chartered cities are headed by mayors.
Philippine provinces are subdivided into cities and municipalities. Unlike chartered cities, which are accountable to the national government, cities and municipalities are responsible to the government of the surrounding province. Each provincial city or municipality is headed by an elected mayor.
The smallest unit of local Philippine government is the barangay. In rural areas the barangay is a village, and in urban areas it is a neighborhood. Each city or municipality contains numerous barangays, and there are thousands of barangays in the Philippines. Each barangay is administered by a chief executive and a community council, whose members are elected by the residents of the barangay.

Why ABC party list…
There are vital and necessary legislation and political actions at the top levels of the government where Barangays need strong representation to advance the cause of development and good governance. While Barangays may have good initiatives, there is a need to support these good policies and laws, as well as ensured budgetary assistance. It is then imperative to attain progress to ensure the stability of the Barangay; from this grass root level we can then build a nation of success. --> -->

ABC Party List is committed to the total growth and development of Barangay and its constituencies. We believe that true, stable and sustainable Barangay development can be attained through collaboration, a process of working together, and of exploring and recognizing interdependent

Our Barangay (Pinagbirayan Malaki) on my personal assessment

Our province, where I grew up since birth until we move in to Metro Manila after I graduated from primary school, belongs to Region V, Camarines Norte is one of the provinces that is identified by local government as among the poorest. The main source of livelihood it produces is mainly copra, and rice.
And our town Paracale is famous for its richness in gold, but practically residents still rely on rice farming and coconut plantations, like our barangay Pinagbirayan Malaki the lack of livelihood opportunity in rural areas are really the major reasons for migration of people to all major cities in the Philippines particularly Metro Manila.

The problems or primary concerns in our barangay that needs local government attention are:

1. Barangay officials who seems to have political agenda in terms of development.
2. Absence of Kooperatiba ( Cooperative ) to support the funding and act as middleman. And develop alternative farming schemes.

3. Security of investors from revolutionary movements like New Peoples Army (NPA) who imposes a discouraging revolutionary taxes.

4. The mind setting of the people to earn a living is to work or migrate to crowded cities
leaving their land and farm instead of cultivating it.

5. The importance of education is not intensively taught or imputed the mind of the
parents and to their children.

Rice planting in the Philippines, with all neighbouring countries like Vietnam and Thailand development to increase their production it puts small farmer from the non major rice producing regions at stake. These needs defines the significant of an alliance to barangay concerns to strenghten and facilitate the development in the rural areas.

Conclusion and Recommendation

With all among Party list representatives running for a chance to have a voice in our congress only ABC Party list stand out with their vision, mission and strategy to really facilitate the concerns in barangay's across the nation there is not doubt that we should supports this party list and make our contribution for the alleviation of poverty in the smallest unit of local government in our country, and we can do that by giving ABC Party list a voice in congress, Say Yes to ABC Party list..... and lets vote to ABC Party list
