[01/31/18] If you are always spending your time checking up on others, to see if they are doing right and believing right – maybe it is time to look to yourself! Yes, look to yourself – and see that you are in faith! Faith for righteousness! Even though you will have critics, and all kinds of people who may give you various religious judgments and opinions, just keep your eyes and focus on Jesus, and what He has done for you! Your faith in Him secures you now and forever! For He is your wisdom, your righteousness, your sanctification and your redemption!
"Life is what happens to you while you’re making plans to do something else."
Romans 13:11-12 says, " And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. 12The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. "
For to us a child is born, unto us a son is given, dedicated, granted, given in exchange for or to pay a wage and the government dominion shall be up on His shoulder and His name, reputation, fame and glory
shall be called, recited, cried out, and proclaimed to be
Wonderful, extraordinary, a hard to understand thing, a marvel of God Counselor, one who advises, consults, counsels, gives purpose, devises, plans
Mighty strong, chief, valiant God
Everlasting ancient of past time and forever of future time
Father, the head or founder of a family or clan, the first of all fathers
Prince, ruler, leader, chief of Peace, wholeness, completeness, soundness, welfare, quiet, tranquility, contentment, complete health.
That would be enough right there, but then it continues to in verse 7.
And of the increase abundance of his government dominion and peace wholeness, completeness, soundness, welfare, quiet, tranquility, contentment, complete health there shall be no end.
Through Jesus, God has offered us a great exchange through the only One with enough dominion, power, strength, and wisdom to pay our debt of sin in full so that we might know Him who is our Father, Ruler, Leader of wholeness, completeness, soundness, tranquility, contentment, and peace. And He is those things to us in abundance that never runs out.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year from the Word of Life Cornerstone Glory Church!
[12/10/17] There is nothing better to give this Christmas than a better way of thinking. Your mind has incredible power over your success or failure. As a child of the Most High God, you are equipped to handle anything that comes your way. To claim your destiny, start thinking about yourself the way God does and delete the thoughts that tear down your confidence. When you train yourself to tune out the negativity and tune into your calling, you’ll begin to live the wonderful plans God has made for you.
As you prepare to turn the calendar from one year to the next, I hope you'll receive these words down in your spirit:
You are who God says you are... highly favored, greatly loved, an overcomer, more than a conqueror.
You are going to see new open doors, bigger opportunities, deeper and more meaningful friendships, promotion, breakthroughs, and the fulfillment of your God-given dreams!
Let there be no doubt in your mind...
No matter what you have been through this year,
God has even BIGGER and BETTER things in store!
The Scriptures says, "the path of the righteous gets brighter and brighter." (see Proverbs 4:18).
That is God's promise for you, that your life will get brighter–more light, more love, more influence, more favor!
Word of Life for you Today:
We all go through a dark time that we don't understand; a difficulty with a friend, an unfair situation at work, an unexpected illness, or the loss of a loved one. But when we find ourselves in that place, it's important that we keep the right perspective. Stay in faith and keep a good attitude when we go through the challenge, not only will we grow through it but we will see how all things are working for our good.
"Gideon built an altar to the Lord there and called it The Lord is Peace" (Judges 6:24). "I will listen to what God the Lord says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants" (Ps. 85:8). "For he himself is our peace" (Eph. 2:14).
Jehovah-shalom is one of the covenant names by which God has bound Himself to us. Shalom means completeness, harmony, and fulfillment. Be blessed with full assurance that everything is all right because God has everything under His care. Jesus in you, your Prince of peace, means that you are settled and at rest in unworried blessedness even in the midst of life's storms.
Be blessed to know the healing power of His presence and His restoration of every broken place. His mighty power gives you victory over every enemy. Be blessed with unshakable faith to believe His sufficiency meets every need that you face through
His limitless resources.
God's covenant of peace is more than just the absence of struggle and fear. His peace is for your security and well-being. Receive the blessing of shalom from your covenant-keeping God. He is the government of peace in your life. His peace gives you safety, joy, and wholeness of your spirit, soul, and body.
Be blessed in Him, your true shalom. He alone is your complete and total fulfillment. Be blessed with God's unshakable peace from the inside out. Be blessed with harmony of spirit, soul, and body. Be blessed with the benefits of His covenant of peace in harmony with yourself, with God, and with others. In His peace your heart knows Him in His fullness.
The world is a scary place. Every time you listen to the news there are more attacks, more shootings, more darkness, more uncertainty. It is enough to make you want to stay at home and hide. In times like this it is easy to get fixated on the darkness. When we do we lose sight of our True Foundation. It is like looking at a large map trying to find your way without those very helpful words "You Are Here."
Knowing who God is and who you are in Him is the "You Are Here" for all our circumstances. Regardless of how dark or uncertain it may feel, God is ever constant and your identity is secure in Him.
Philippians 4:7 promises if we bring everything to God, His peace which passes all understanding will guard our heart and mind through Christ Jesus. That word guard is a very strong word, much stronger than our English language expresses. In the Greek it means "to protect by a military guard, either to prevent hostile invasion, or to keep the inhabitants of a besieged city from flight."
God's peace not only keeps invaders out, but keeps us from running away in fear. So how do we live in that peace? In The Message translation the same verse ends with this phrase "It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."
It is time to choose to guard our hearts and minds with the truth of who God is and who we are in Him, allowing who He is to displace all worry and guard us from attack and from our fear.
"I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order
that you may know ... his incomparably great power for us who
believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which
he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated
him at his right hand in the heavenly realms" (Eph. 1:18-20).
You are identified with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
You live in the risen and ascended Christ every day because God
raised you up with Him. He is your life in all His resurrection
power (Phil. 3:10).
Because of what Christ did, you are hidden in God and sealed
by the power of the Holy Spirit. Choose to live from the reality
of the finished work of Christ's resurrection and ascension. All
authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Jesus, and you
are seated with Him at the right hand of the Father, established in
His authority (Eph. 2:6). You live in His power and dominion over
spiritual forces of darkness. You reign in life through Christ.
Be blessed to understand your true position in Christ. The Spirit of
Christ Jesus is present every day in you so that you can live always
from your spirit, not allowing the soul or body to take over.
You are a covenant child of God Most High. He is the God of all
grace, God of the impossible. You have the privilege of coming
into agreement with Him in your spirit, soul, and body. You are
intended to live in honor and authority in Jesus' name. You are on
kingdom business. Be blessed to represent your King everywhere
7th Church Anniversary Fatima Branch
"Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures forever!"
As a kid, did you ever make a trade, "no trades back"? I'd always drawback, thinking, "Now wait a minute. What does he know that I don't? I may decide that what I had was better and want it back!" In every need, Jesus invites us to exchange our insufficiency for His all-sufficiency, no trades back. He longs for us to substitute our "I don't have" for "I have all I need in Jesus." We take great hope that more than what God does, it is who He is that really makes the difference.
Who He is to us is so much more than what He does for us. His person is inseparable from all His power and presence. Your momma may have told you "Be a brave boy" or "Be a brave girl," but Jesus tells us not to worry about feeling brave or putting on a happy face: just let Him be for us who He is for every need.
His strength shines best in our weakness. Jesus said, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness." Like Paul, we can say, "I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong" (2 Cor. 12:9-10).
Aren't you glad? It's called grace--God's enabling presence. "And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work" (2 Cor. 9:8).

Obligations are something that most of us take very seriously. Most people feel that once they’ve committed themselves to something, such as a monthly payment or a promise of another kind, they should do everything in their power to fulfill that commitment. Fulfilling one’s responsibilities is simply a matter of positive personal pride on the part of most people. And so it should be.
We as Christians not only have our secular obligations, but also spiritual obligations. One of those obligations is obedience to Christ. Though we are commanded to live in obedience to Christ, that obedience should be the result of more than just a command to do so. I believe we are doubly obligated to obey Christ because of what He has done for us. If for no other reason, we should serve Him obediently out of gratitude for His mercy and grace demonstrated in salvation. However, gratitude alone will not enable us to obey Christ; only depending on His power daily, by faith, will accomplish that. But obedience is our Christian obligation just the same.
Leading a church without prayer is like walking in the Grand Canyon in the dead of night without a flashlight or a backpack. It just should not be done. To move your church and your life to the next level, it is imperative to create a culture and habit of prayer intercession for the city, starting with you.
You wouldn't hike a desert without water. Make sure you aren't leading without prayer.
When the soul of every individual is enlarged through prayer and passion of the heart is inflamed to pray, the group called “church” is mobilized to break through barriers and impact a city. Hosea 10:12 lays out a great call to believers:
“Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the LORD, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.”
Our 47 years old Pastor in Pangyan, Glan, Pastor Marcelino Cabca is in an E.R. in Emergency Hospital of Glan, Sarangani waiting for tests results before he is probably admitted into. However, he has fallen 5 times in the last 36 hours, is not taking his medicines, is confused, has not been eating, is afraid to stand up, and his feet and ankles are swelling.
Please pray the Lord guides the hospital staff to figure out what is happening and to adjust his medicines for a quick recovery!!
We are so amazed at what God has done in 2015. He has taken this ministry to heights we never thought possible. We want to personally thank you for your commitment through prayers and support.
I believe that we are getting ready to step into one of the greatest seasons for the ministry as we share hope to the world around us. God is opening doors, multiplying opportunities, and pouring out his favor in our ministry and in your own life and family as well.
God bless you and give you a wonderful year in 2016 as by His grace we seek to serve our Lord Jesus together.
God bless you so much, with our love in Christ.
During this festive season, meditate on the Lord's love for you. Whatever your challenge now, let His grace and strength bring you through.
Let's take some time to remember that our Lord Jesus came to be with us. His name is "Immanuel," which means "God with us."
He is a God who never leaves us nor forsakes us (Heb 13:5–6).
MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY BLESSED NEW YEAR!!!
May the good times and treasures of the present
become the golden memories of tomorrow.
Wishing you lots of love, joy and happiness.
Merry Christmas! From Ptrs John & Jo de Vila
When activities become routine, it can be easy to overlook their significance and simply run on autopilot. This can happen in many areas of life—including church. We can become so familiar with our traditions that we never stop to consider what the church is and why it exists. In fact, we may even forget whose it is and start to think it’s “our” church.
The first mention of the church in the New Testament is in Matthew 16:18, where Jesus said, “I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.” This clearly shows us that the church belongs to Christ, and there will always be conflict involved in the growth. However, victory is assured because it is God’s power at work in the building process.
Although the Lord is the one forming His church, He’s enlisted us to participate in the work. That’s why, before He ascended to heaven, Jesus’ parting words to His disciples were, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth” (Acts 1:8). This is the unfinished task of the church, and it is still being accomplished to this very day.
[12/14/15] No matter what your present circumstances look like, God has wonderful things lined up for you. He has more favor, divine opportunities, and increased blessings. Because of God’s goodness, you can live with expectation in your life today!
We are grateful for God's abundant blessings and the unity we share in Christ!

I’d like to encourage you to let Thanksgiving Day remind you to cultivate a grateful heart all year long. There will be times when thanking and praising God comes easily because His blessings are so abundant and obvious. But on other occasions, it will be a sacrifice of praise because thanking Him will be the last thing you feel like doing. I know it’s not easy, but I can assure you that it’s the best option. If you’ll focus on the Lord with a heart of gratitude, your anxiety and fretting will be replaced with trust, and you’ll experience Christ’s peace and joy, which are beyond all human understanding.

The Beatitudes are the radical new order of blessedness initiated by the new covenant signed in the blood of Jesus. They are not the Scriptural equivalent of your mama's admonition to "be sweet." They outline the new way of the kingdom that Jesus said we should seek above all else (Matt. 6:33). It is a tall order to be like Jesus, like His compassion, His humility, His longing for the Father's glory.
The Beatitudes are conditional promises of blessing. Letting Jesus work His character in us is the condition; blessing is the promise. Pray for yourself, that you will enjoy the blessing of being the person God wants you to be, as God molds you in the character of His beloved and well-pleasing Son.
Blessed are the poor in spirit. Matthew 5:3
Heavenly Father, let me honestly face myself with courage to admit that I am utterly helpless and destitute to receive more of heaven's kingdom. I want the humility not to be impressed with myself and my accomplishments. Increase in me (John 3:30). More of You, God, none of me. I am overwhelmed with the sense of my spiritual need. I recognize my true spiritual condition of pride and self-sufficiency, and I am broken over my need to cast myself upon Your mercy. But I am covered by the blood of Jesus!
Blessed are those who mourn. Matthew 5:4
God, break my heart with what breaks Your heart. Let me embrace the true grief of the Man of sorrows. I die to unholy grief (self-pity). Let me receive Your holy comfort in my losses (Isa. 61:2). Wipe away my tears in Your tender mercy.
Blessed are the meek. Matthew 5:5
Work in me the grace of spirit and soul to receive Your restraints for my strengths. My Lord Jesus was meek, lowly, and gentle of heart (not to be confused with weakness). He knew He had all the infinite resources of God at His command. Rein me in, so that I will be gentle in Your strength. I accept all Your dealings with me as good. Help me get angry at the right time, in the right measure, only for the right reason. Replace my self-assertiveness and demanding my rights with Your holy long-suffering and humility. More than anything, I want to respond to Your invitation, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Matt. 11:26-30).
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. Matthew 5:6
I want to fast of being satisfied with my own self-righteousness. I intensely long for more of You with unquenchable thirst. My spirit and my soul will be completely satisfied only in the living water of Your presence. I won't try to satisfy my soul's appetite at the world's table. I'll taste and see that You are good. I ardently desire You as much as I need food to sustain life (Ps. 36:8-9, 42:1-2, 63:1,5; Isa. 55:1-2).
I look to the promises... for theirs is the kingdom of heaven, for they will be comforted, for they will inherit the earth, for they will be filled. Give me the Beatitude kind of satisfaction in You. Thank You for these promises of blessing, more of heaven's reign here on earth, the comfort of the Comforter, inheritance in Christ, and full satisfaction in Your righteousness.
