"There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit." (John 3:1-8).

The second one below are pictures of my workplace, Newark Liberty International Airport.

These ones below are the EL AL Airlines.

June 17, 2015 (Wednesday) - Sobering news -- One of my co-workers died suddenly. It was heart-breaking (death is never good news except... and unexpected). The WORD of the LORD speaks of it. Our good LORD does not want that any should perish, but that all should come unto repentance!

July 1, 2015 (Wednesday) - The LORD's blessings from then to now. Back in June 2013 when we were selling Dad's house at downtown Jersey City (see picture below), I was staying at the basement and then at the 1st floor. I didn't have a bed. Just a couch (futton) to sleep on. Then when the house got sold, I didn't know where I was going to go. And I was in the process of looking for a job. I was unemployed and collecting welfare so I can help Dad with the care of the house while he was still around. GOD helped me at the right time! I got a job at ASIG at Newark Liberty International Airport around June 2013 when the house got sold. Then the LORD provided a place for me to stay (at my sister's apartment).GOD is faithful! So, I moved to my new apartment in the basement. Big change (for the better)! See 2nd picture below. Later, my nephew moved in and took my room and I had to sleep in the couch. Then just recently (June 2015), we had to move upstairs to the 3rd floor. See 3rd picture. And again GOD was good to me! I got a room to myself... and a nice comfortable bed!

July 3, 2015 (Friday) - Below are more pictures of Dad's former residence where I used to stay (at the basement). Left to right, front porch, basement towards front of house.

July 20, 2015 (Monday) - More blessings from the good LORD. Yesterday at work, my supervisor asked me to help him with a charter flight while I was working in the bag room. Then he told me that I was going into the pit. So I was thinking depression city. But then when we got to the Signature buidling, the people there had food for us! And when I got back, one of my co-worker lent me $20 after I share to her that I was flat financially penniless. I was left with $ 0.22. Plus the good LORD sent another believer at work!

July 27, 2015 (Monday) - Good news (somewhat) on my brother-in-law's condition. He had a severe internal infection and kidney failure. And he was hospitalized and taken to ICU (Intensive Care Unit). He was given IVs (intravenous) and breathing tube. Then I asked my cousin to pray for him. And the LORD heard and made him a bit better. Last I heard was that he wasn't using the breathing tube anymore!

August 16, 2015 (Sunday) - By the LORD grace, I am still alive. And the tracts arrived yesterday! Just in time. I was running out of new tracts. Also, a "Quiet Room" was built next to the guard post (at work) where I can spend time reading the WORD of the LORD.

August 17, 2015 (Monday) - By GOD's grace I am able to read the Bible everyday. From Genesis to Numbers. UPDATE: 8:36PM - I thank the good LORD for providing for good things for me once again. My nephew who has the internet decided to move out and take the internet with him. So it was kind of depressing because I use it for listening and watching TCBN (The Christian Broadcasting Network) and other clean programs (In Touch Ministry, Voice of the Martyrs, and others). Then I was saying to myself and to the LORD that whatever HE wants is what I will be abiding to. We were without the internet yesterday. Then just this afternoon, my nephew went back here and re-installed the internet!

TIME: 9:27PM - BIBLE READING: "And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of the congregation, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying," (Numbers 1:1). Since they didn't have any form of fast moving vehicles back then, their travel is by means of walking.Thus, the book of Numbers dates the people of Israel's journey from Egypt as the first day of the second month, and the second year. It took the people of Israel 2 full years to travel from Egypt to Mount Sinai. It was 2 years after they left Egypt with the many wondrous works (miracles) that the LORD GOD did in their midst and the Egyptians; 2 years after they left and were freed from slavery, "And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up." (Exodus 40:17)

August 18, 2015 (Tuesday) - BIBLE READING: The LORD GOD chose Moses to bring HIS people (Abraham's seed) out of Egypt and into the land that HE promised to them (Canaan). "Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I." (Exodus 3:1-4).

GOD's institution of the Jewish calendar (the first month of the year), "And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you." (Exodus 12:1-2). And on the 10th day of this month the LORD GOD instituted the first Passover, "Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof. And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD'S passover." (Exodus 12:3-11).

DATE: September 8, 2015 (Tuesday) - My YouTube video above.

TIME: 5:16PM - The YouTube video above is one of the several that I made based on the WORD of the LORD. And right besides it is Hal Lindsey Report.

DATE: September 10, 2015 (Thursday) - Another video above is from Andrew Wommack Ministries on his Asian Trip 2011.

DATE: September 14, 2015 (Monday) - Been reading the book of Deuteronomy. Moses has been re-emphasizing what the LORD has done to and for Israel. In the book of Deuteronomy, he has further explained the things (statues, commandments, blessings, and judgments) that was given to them. Moses has given more details of Israel's whereabouts from when they left Egypt and when they journeyed through the desert. "For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee." (Deuteronomy 15:6)

DATE: September 19, 2015 (Friday) - The good LORD has contantly give me grace to read HIS perfect WORD! I am reading the book of Deuteronomy (by GOD's grace), and am into chapter 28. The LORD lets the people of Israel hear the end results of their reaction to GOD's commands. There will be blessings abundantly when they obey HIS commandments, and cursings (leading to destruction and misery) when they disobey. And all of GOD's commands are only for the good!

NOTE: September 19, 2019 (Thursday) -- I made changes in this page. I re-aligned the images to be in center.

DATE: September 21, 2015 (Monday) - By the LORD's infinite grace, the reading of HIS WORD is continually regular. I'm now at chapter 13 of Matthew. I'm reading the Holy Spirit inspired account of the SAVIOUR through the eyes of one of HIS disciples, namely Matthew the tax collector. Matthew records in details the family history of the LORD. "The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham." (Matthew 1:1).

DATE: September 22, 2015 (Tuesday) - "In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea," (Matthew 3:1). Matthew preludes the SAVIOUR's appearance with John the Baptist. The LORD gives us ample notice of what HE is about to do. HE doesn't leave us wondering completely. And HE tells us through HIS servants (the prophets) way ahead. Matthew presents John as the precursor of the SAVIOUR, preaching in the wilderness of Judea.

DATE: September 27, 2015 (Sunday) - BIBLE READING NOTES: The good LORD's grace continues to enable me to read HIS blessed WORD. I am now at the book of Joshua. "Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying, Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel." (Joshua 1:1-2). The eternal, ever living GOD, the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, now continues to guide HIS people on their journey to the promised land, the land that HE promised Abraham and his descendants.

DATE: September 29, 2015 (Tuesday) - I have been reading the good LORD's WORD (by HIS grace alone), and through the inspirations of great men of GOD like Gene Neill, and Bill Bright (whom I saw at TBN), up to the book of Joshua, chapter 11. However, I just want to recap (recapitulate) from the start. Genesis is about how the LORD created the world, and man. Then Exodus is when the LORD delivered HIS people out of bondage. Leviticus is when the LORD gave the people of Israel the commandments, statutes, and the 10 commandments. Numbers is when the LORD had Moses take account of the people by tribes. Deuteronomy is when the people of Israel left Egypt and were wandering in the desert (wilderness). Then Joshua is when Moses passed away and had Joshua lead the people to the promised land, Canaan. I am now at the part where the Israelites are approaching the promised land, Canaan. And it wasn't unoccupied! They had to fight their way through the entire land with their inhabitants, more than a dozen kingdoms!

DATE: October 1, 2015 (Thursday) - The LORD power is the only thing that kept the people of Israel going in their conquest of the land of Canaan. They had to fight against so many armies and kings! And they (the inhabitants of Canaan) were "And they went out, they and all their hosts with them, much people, even as the sand that is upon the sea shore in multitude, with horses and chariots very many" (Joshua 11:4). The inhabitants of Canaan were as the sand of the sea! The people of Israel had to go against these vast numbers of soldiers!

DATE: October 6, 2015 (Tuesday) - "No pit is so deep that GOD is deeper still" (Betsie Ten Boom).

TIME: 7:54AM - CONTINUATION BIBLE READING: I'm at the book of Joshua chapter 21. "Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast." (Joshua 1:3-4). The good LORD has detailed to the people the exact area that HE has given them for their inheritance (heritage, possesion, birthright). Here is the measurements of the land that the LORD gave Israel - wilderness, Lebanon to the Euphrates river, land of the Hittites, from the great sea to the going down of the sun. "There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee." (Joshua 1:5). And here is the LORD GOD's promise to Joshua - No one can stand before him while he is still alive. The LORD GOD will be with him. GOD will not fail him or forsake him! "Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest." (Joshua 1:6-7) Here the LORD is encouraging Joshua. Be strong. Be courageous.GOD is with you. And you have a task ahead of you. Be strong so you can keep the commandments of the LORD! And this is the secret of success for his life.

"This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." (Joshua 1:8). This is how IMPORTANT the scriptures is in the life of Joshua.

DATE: October 10, 2015 (Saturday) - "The kingdom of heaven" - This is what our LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS keeps telling us about. HE came into this world to show us what kingdom life is about. Not an earthly kingdom which most of those who live in Israel were thinking of in our SAVIOUR's lifetime, but the heavenly kingdom, that is the kingdom of GOD. GOD the FATHER promised HIS people a messiah, one who will establish HIS kingdom here on earth. But the promised messiah is GOD HIMSELF, GOD the SON, even the LORD JESUS. "In thy seed shall all the nations be blessed" is what GOD promised Abraham. And the LORD JESUS fulfilled that promise. GOD the FATHER had this in mind through HIS people Israel. That through the example of the people of Israel, all the nations will see GOD's glory.

DATE: October 12, 2015 (Monday) - "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy." (Daniel 9:24). The prophet Daniel was given by the LORD a certain window to the future. Click here (The 70 Weeks of Daniel) for more details.

DATE: October 14, 2015 (Wednesday) - I was just listening to Doug Batchelor of Amazing Facts expound on Joshua. He surmised that Joshua must have known Moses and was with Moses when Moses confronted the Pharoah in Egypt. And that Joshua has a servant heart (a picture of the SAVIOUR, the LORD JESUS), and he bears the name that means GOD is SALVATION. And that he possess the one character that makes for a great general, trust in GOD and use of his military skills.

DATE: October 19, 2015 (Monday) - BIBLE READING: As always, it is by the LORD's grace that yours truly is able to continue reading the scriptures (GOD's WORD). I am now reading the book of Judges. From the patriarch Abraham, to Isaac, then Jacob, and finally the 12 tribes of Israel. Moses was the main character (under GOD) in the first 5 books. After Moses's leadership, Joshua took over the responsibility of guiding the people of Israel. However, there was no one to take over Joshua.

TIME: 6:43AM - But the people of Israel did the right thing. They consulted the LORD GOD. "Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass, that the children of Israel asked the LORD, saying, Who shall go up for us against the Canaanites first, to fight against them?" (Judges 1:1). The Israelites beat the odds in conquering the land. They had to deal with (fight with) several kings and their armies who were more fierce than they. And kings and armies that are more experienced than they (with weapons and military transport - chariots, more advanced). "And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron." (Judges 1:19). However, advanced weaponries aren't the problem. Success in their endeavors depended not on might, but on GOD's power. It was the disobedience that kept the Israelites from enjoying full success. "And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you. And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this? Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you." (Judges 2:1-3).

DATE: October 20, 2015 (Tuesday) - BIBLE READING: "And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD, that he did for Israel. And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten years old. And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathheres, in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of the hill Gaash. And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel. And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim:" (Judges 2:7-11). Problems after problems confronts the people of Israel. Just like us. After the LORD delivers us from sin (our Egypt), we still grumble, complain, and sin. Several of the people of Israel grumbled, complained and went against Moses and Joshua at the wilderness. And they died.

"And when the inhabitants of Gibeon heard what Joshua had done unto Jericho and to Ai, They did work wilily, and went and made as if they had been ambassadors, and took old sacks upon their asses, and wine bottles, old, and rent, and bound up; And old shoes and clouted upon their feet, and old garments upon them; and all the bread of their provision was dry and mouldy." (Joshua 9:3-5). GOD was giving Joshua success. Then came the incident where a group of people (the Gibeonites) feared the LORD and HIS might that they disguised themselves to have the Israelites spare them.

Things were going right with Israel while Joshua and those ones who were alive when the LORD GOD did wonders for Israel. Things, however, didn't stayed that way. A generation after Joshua grew up not knowing the LORD. And eventually sinned against the LORD. Just as what the LORD had said that these people around them will be a snare to them, they enticed the children of Israel to worship other gods.

DATE: October 21, 2015 (Wednesday) - The good LORD has graciously given me another day. I'm at the book of Judges. The children of Israel has now acquired the promised land. Just as GOD promised to give them. You'd think that the Israelites would be extremely grateful for the land that GOD gave them, but instead, they followed after other gods. Human nature. There is none that seeketh after GOD. It says in the Bible that They knew not the LORD, and the works that He has done in their midst! The knowledge of the LORD is the what saves us, and the fear of the LORD is what keeps us.

DATE: October 23, 2015 (Friday) - BIBLE READING: The LORD's grace is ever so amazing! The children of Israel keeps sinning against the LORD, and the LORD keeps helping them in their times of trouble (by sending them judges).

DATE: October 24, 2015 (Saturday) - BIBLE READING: (By GOD's grace alone). Finished the book of Judges and now am into the book of Ruth. I was thinking of the different phases that the LORD's people were going through after they left Egypt. The LORD gave them Moses to lead them in their deliverance. Then the LORD gave them Joshua to lead them to the promised land (Canaan). And when they conquered the land, the LORD gave them judges to help them along, and deliver them from their surrounding enemies (becuase they forgot the LORD and served other gods).

DATE: October 26, 2015 (Sunday) - BIBLE READING: (By GOD's grace alone). The good LORD has allowed me once again to continue reading HIS WORD. And I am now at 1 Samuel. The children of Israel is now enjoying having the promised land as their own. And they were enjoying GOD's mighty protection as a hedge around them. Then they forget the LORD and sin against HIM. And the nations around them oppress them. Then GOD shows them mercy and delivers them through the judges that HE sends them. And in the midst of this events in the promised land, GOD fulfills HIS promise of a Messiah, "And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;" (Genesis 22:18). The book of Ruth.

DATE: October 27, 2015 (Monday) - BIBLE READING: (By GOD's grace alone). I am now at 1 Samuel, and have read the book of Ruth (where the LORD has fulfilled HIS covenant even in the middle of Israel's flip-flops). The LORD singled out a woman (Ruth) to bring to fruition HIS promise of the messiah who will deliver the world from their sins. "Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehemjudah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons. And the name of the man was Elimelech, and the name of his wife Naomi, and the name of his two sons Mahlon and Chilion, Ephrathites of Bethlehemjudah. And they came into the country of Moab, and continued there." (Ruth 1:1-2). In the midst of the time of the judges, the LORD uses the famine to move Elimelech to Moab. The LORD's sovereignty is at work. And there in Moab, Ruth was introduced in the lineage of the MESSIAH.

DATE: November 8, 2015 (Sunday) - Here is the video below is a vivid reminder of HOW gracious the LORD is to us, "For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing." (Deuteronomy 2:7). The YouTube clip is about the slums in the place called Tondo. The bio-documentary shows the lives of the people who live in the shanties at Tondo eeking out a living scavenging. And they live on cramped up spaces they call home. While we here at the US enjoy the many blessings of the LORD like spacious rooms (our own personal space - bedroom), toiletries, own shower, clean water, good and plenteous food, and even our transportation!

DATE: November 17, 2015 (Tuesday) - Old age (which is what I have and am) is creeping up everyday. But the LORD keeps me by HIS grace. The year 2013 was when Paul Crouch, the founder of TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) passed away. And my hair started turning white from old age. Noticed my skin getting wrinkly. And am getting joint pains all over. "As it is appointed unto men once to die" the Bible says. And that our outer shell (human body) is subjected to decay (as a consequence of Adam's sin). I am getting oldest! Just as what the Bible says, "For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body." (Romans 8:20-23).

DATE: December 12, 2015 (Saturday) - The LORD GOD is ever faithful to HIS people in seeing them through. 1 Kings 2 tells of Solomon's reign after David.Why does the LORD have people do the things that HE could have done HIMSELF in fulfilling HIS GOOD WILL to all of mankind? Because HE wanted us to share HIS goodness. "And Solomon's authority over the kingdom was complete." (1 Kings 2:46).

"In Gibeon, Solomon had a vision of the Lord in a dream by night; and God said to him, Say what I am to give you. And Solomon said, Great was your mercy to David my father, as his life before you was true and upright and his heart was true to you; and you have kept for him this greatest mercy, a son to take his place this day. And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in the place of David my father; and I am only a young boy, with no knowledge of how to go out or come in. And your servant has round him the people of your selection, a people so great that they may not be numbered, and no account of them may be given. Give your servant, then, a wise heart for judging your people, able to see what is good and what evil; for who is able to be the judge of this great people? Now these words and Solomon's request were pleasing to the Lord." (1 Kings 3:5-10).

The good LORD has given grace to Solomon for David's sake to have him acknowledge the LORD. And Solomon realized how grave his responsibility was as the example/caretaker of GOD's people! Solomon also realizes the peace that the LORD has given him, and the high privelege of building the temple of the LORD GOD in this land that the LORD gave them after the LORD freed them from slavery in Egypt. From having several judges to help/save them from their neighboring enemies to having David as their king.

DATE: December 15, 2015 (Tuesday) - Above are pictures of the car radiator (left) and the Christmas tracts that the good LORD has given me. Thank you, O blessed LORD. I got those items (the radiator I ordered from E-Bay, and the tracts from Moments With The Book) this afternoon.

DATE: December 20, 2015 (Sunday) - I am not sure if and when this personal web site will remain, but I will keep updating it. I am glad and am deeply grateful to the good LORD for HIS great and infinite mercy and grace towards me in having me behold HIS eternal goodness, holiness, and sovereignty! I have been reading the gospel according to Mark, and there the LORD has revealed HIMSELF through HIS SON, the LORD JESUS when HE was here on earth. And HE told of the parable of the sower (Mark 4) - "And he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land. And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine, Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred. And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear." (Mark 4:1-9). The LORD JESUS (GOD incarnate) tells us what the kingdom of heaven is like. The LORD GOD has taken upon HIMSELF to give us the mysteries of heaven - even the gospel, the good news of GOD bringing heaven here on earth. GOD made heaven (in all of its glory) available to us sinful creatures. And the LORD JESUS tells us the way it is - the different responses to the good news.

TIME: 8:15AM - Mark's account of the SAVIOUR's life (biography) ended in hope, heavenly hope, and glory in the LORD's conquer over death, namely HIS resurrection (Mark 16)!

DATE: December 21, 2015 (Monday) - The pictures below are the upgraded "office" that the good LORD gave me so that I can listen to WMCA 570 preachings and messages from HIS people, and to read HIS WORD. It has free internet too, and warmth during the cold months, and air-conditioning during the warm months!

TIME: 10:56PM - And the short video below is the same (my "office" at work) that the LORD ALMIGHTY gave me.

DATE: December 23, 2015 (Wednesday) - It's just 2 days shy of Christmas, and already the good LORD's blessings are over-flowing. From Max Lucado's heart-warming message, "To Be With the Ones He Loves", Dr. William Wilson's (Oral Roberts University president) message on Mary's humble submission (acknowledgment of GOD's good purposes) reaction to the announcement of becoming the SAVIOUR's mother, completely changed the world, and TBN's "Perfect Gift" movie, to Jay Sekulow's Christmas songs. The nativity scene below is courtesy of BGEA (Billy Graham Evangelistic Association).

TIME: 1:45AM - What is the greatest gift? (It ain't a tie!) The greatest gift is the CHRIST child. "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6).

DATE: December 24, 2015 (Thursday) - It's Christmas Eve, and am on vacation (thank you LORD). Got 40 hours of personal paid holiday hours from work, and I was told that if I don't use it, I lose it. The picture below is the car that the good LORD gave me, and it is still holding me in good stead! The good LORD blesses me everyday! And that small gadget in the window of the car is the Acer tablet that I got from my supervisor at work. That Acer tablet is used for BGEA videos that yours truly transferred from YouTube which your truly use for viewing outside.

TIME: 11:22AM - That picture above was yesterday's. Yours truly (meh) was outside again. Passing out the nativity card. By the good LORD's grace alone. The LORD GOD is soveriegn.

TIME: 5:27PM - Watched TBN's Drive Thru History: The Gospels (see below): The story of our SAVIOUR's birth. "No fanfare!" "No fancy celebration!" Just a quiet night in a lowly manger. And those that the LORD saw fit to participate in the splendid announcement of the heavenly hosts were lowly shepherds.

DATE: December 26, 2015 (Saturday) - "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows." (Matthew 10:29-31). And verses from "HIS Eye Is On The Sparrow", "Why should I feel discouraged Why should the shadows come Why should my heart feel lonely And long for heaven and home When Jesus is my portion A constant friend is he His eye is on the sparrow And I know he watches over me His eye is on the sparrow And I know he watches me". There was a time (believe it or not) when I was doing my grocery shopping at a supermarket. I headed to the supermarket right after work. Then soon after doing the shopping, I headed yo my car and realized that I dropped my ID I had hanging on my neck. It came of the clip. And yours truly started panicking. I was thinking all sorts of things. How I can get to work without it. And how I can go to the parking lot (I had my parking card in the packet along with my work ID. So I prayed to the good LORD to help me. Then I locked the car door, and tried to back track. And guess what!??? I found my ID at the bottom of the main entrance automatic door, stuck in the bottom! (It wasn't going anywhere)! The good LORD came through once again! The good LORD watches over us. NOTE: The PICTURE below is my work ID.

TIME: 11:55PM - The woman at the well who was changed (saved) by the LORD JESUS, became the evangelist in her town! (See video below). And the 2 pictures are the location of after Christmas gospel tract venture.

DATE: December 27, 2015 (Sunday) - BIBLE READING: Solomon's temple was built with the help of Hiram (Huram) of Tyre. Hiram is a renowned craftsman of bronze metals. Hiram was the one who made and designed the pillars in front of the temple entrance, the carts and the huge water-vessel (molten sea), 1 Kings 7.

DATE: December 27, 2015 (Sunday) - BIBLE READING: 1 Kings 6-8. Here is the details that the good LORD would have us to know, of Solomon's building of the first great temple of the LORD in all of its splendor! And the bonus of building his (Solomon's) house (palace) and his other additions. The great and splendid temple of the LORD (1 Kings 6). Solomon's palace (1 Kings7). Israel is at the height of her glory. From leaving (being delivered) out of the hands of pharoah to establishing her kingdom in Canaan (the promised land), to now with Solomon building the house of the LORD. "Now it came about in the four hundred and eightieth year after the Israelites came out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomonís reign over Israel, in the month of Ziv (April-May) which is the second month, that he began to build the Lordís house (temple)." 1 Kings 6:1). And Solomon finished the building of the temple (by GOD's blessings), "In the fourth year [of King Solomonís reign] the foundation of the Lordís house was laid, in the [second] month, Ziv (April-May). In the eleventh year [of King Solomonís reign] in the month of Bul (October-November), that is, the eighth month, the house was finished throughout all its parts and in accordance with all its specifications. So he built it in seven years." (1 Kings 6:37-38 AMP).

TIME: 8:21AM - BIBLE READING: (1 Kings 6). It took Solomon 7 years to build the LORD's temple. And most of the sections of the temple is overlaid with precious gold! And rightly so did Solomon decorated the LORD house. The GOD of all glory deserves only the perfect of all. Solomon lavishly used only the very best of lumber, metals, and other items for the LORD's abode.

TIME: 2:43PM - NEW YEAR (2016): The year (2015) is almost ending, and the new year (2016) is fast approaching. I hate to sound morbid, however, life dictates that I face up to reality. I'm getting much older. It is the good LORD who keeps sustaining me throughout the years.

DATE: December 28, 2015 (Monday) - 3rd day: Below is the spot where tracts were passed out (by HIS grace alone) during the holidays. And the good LORD has given me another day by HIS grace alone. Yours truly did his laundry today - laundromat is picture below: Plus I get to read the LORD's WORD!

DATE: December 29, 2015 (Tuesday) - BIBLE READING: The gospels of Matthew and Mark. Matthew, the tax collector and disciple of the LORD JESUS, wrote with his fellow Hebrews in mind. Matthew credited the LORD JESUS of the lineage going all the way back from Abraham. Mark however emphasizes the LORD JESUS' ministry from the very start. But first, I want to keep thanking the good LORD for letting me read HIS WORD. Studied 1 Kings 6-7 at the laundromat.

TIME: 11:51AM - BIBLE READING: By the good LORD's grace alone, yours truly has been reading the New Testament gospels. Started at Matthew, then Mark, and about to start Luke. One notable difference between Matthew and Mark is the introduction of our SAVIOUR. Matthew goes to the detail of our SAVIOUR's genealogy, as a descendant of Abraham, and of David. While Mark goes directly to John the Baptist's wilderness proclamation of our SAVIOUR, "The beginning of the [facts regarding the] good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written and forever remains in the [writings of the] prophet Isaiah: 'Behold, I send My messenger ahead of You, Who will prepare Your wayóA voice of one shouting in the wilderness, Prepare the way of the Lord, Make His paths straight!' John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins [that is, requiring a change of oneís old way of thinking, turning away from sin and seeking God and His righteousness]. And all the country of Judea and all the people of Jerusalem were continually going out to him; and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, as they confessed their sins. John wore clothing made of camelís hair and had a [wide] leather [d]band around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. And he was preaching, saying, ďAfter me comes He who is mightier [more powerful, more noble] than I, and I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the straps of His sandals [even as His slave]. As for me, I baptized you [who came to me] with water [only]; but He will baptize you [who truly repent] with the Holy Spirit." (Mark:1-18 AMP). Then Mark introduces us to the SAVIOUR coming from Nazareth to be baptized by John, "In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. Immediately coming up out of the water, he (John) saw the heavens torn open, and the Spirit like a dove descending on Him (Jesus); and a voice came out of heaven saying: 'You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased and delighted!'" (Mark 1:9-11 AMP). Then Mark points out the LORD as fulfilling HIS role as our representative, the second Adam, sent out to be tempted by the ruler of this world, Satan, which HE passed with flying colors (because HE is obedient to the FATHER), "Immediately the [Holy] Spirit forced Him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted [to do evil] by Satan; and He was with the wild animals, and the angels ministered continually to Him." (Mark 1:12-13 AMP).

TIME: 11:47PM - BIBLE READING: One other thing too that I noticed about Mark is that he tells us of our LORD's life as a grown-up. The LORD JESUS is already grown-up. Matthew mentions the LORD JESUS birth and childhood. I think Mark wants to show us of the LORD's life when HE was ministering, when HE was baptized to HIS death, and resusrrection. Mark shows the complete innocence of our SAVIOUR when HE was being tried by the high court, "Early in the morning the chief priests, with the elders and scribes and the whole Council (Sanhedrin, Jewish High Court), immediately consulted together; and they bound Jesus, they took Him away [violently] and handed Him over to Pilate. Pilate questioned Him, 'Are You the King of the Jews?' And He replied to him, 'It is as you say.' The chief priests began accusing Him of many things. Then Pilate again asked Him, 'Have You no answer [to give]? See how many charges they are bringing against You!' But Jesus gave no further answer; so Pilate was perplexed." (Mark 15:1-5). The SAVIOUR had to drink this cup of humiliation, terrible treatment in the hands of even the religious people of HIS day, of HIS own people. "But Pilate asked them, 'Why, what has He done that is evil?' But they screamed all the more, 'Crucify Him!'" (Mark 15:14 AMP). Unbelievers mistreat the goodness of the SAVIOUR, they mistreat the SAVIOUR HIMSELF. Sinners (us) use HIS name in vain. Sinners (that's the whole world) even use the FATHER's name in vain. And even then, the FATHER and the LORD JESUS takes the first step to bring us to HIMSELF by HIS death on the cross. Our evilness, our sinfulness is used by the LORD to reconcile us to HIMSELF. HIS sovereign love for us. "The soldiers led Him away into the palace (that is, the Praetorium), and they called together the entire [Roman] battalion [of 600 soldiers]. They dressed Him up in [a ranking Roman officerís robe of] purple, and after twisting [together] a crown of thorns, they placed it on Him; and they began saluting and mocking Him: 'Hail, King of the Jews!' They kept beating Him on the head with a reed and spitting on Him, and kneeling and bowing in [mock] homage to Him. After they had mocked Him, they took off the purple robe and put His own clothes on Him. And they led Him out [of the city] to crucify Him." (Mark 15:16-20 AMP).

DATE: December 30, 2015 (Wednesday) - First and foremost, I thank the good LORD for giving me one more day graciously. Old age is getting to me. Somehow yours truly doesn't look forward to the new year as I used to. For me, it's like going backwards now. But I guess I need to go back to the beginning of this year and review the events that happened. Just like what Dr. Jeremiah does. He list the events that happened througout the year and he stops to review them - to see and thank the good LORD for all of HIS blessings that HE gives him. So, here goes: January 2015, I was here but I think I was living in the basement. And the LORD helped me with the lease by having my nephew moved in. Plus the good LORD helps me with the car that HE gave me earlier. I know that the good LORD granted me the full-time as in contrast to part-time at my job when I started work, June 2013, and the apartment that I still have til now by HIS grace alone. Also, I have to mention material things, like the tablet (which I use for watching BGEA, and listening to WMCA), the camera I got from E-Bay. iPhone 4 from my brother that the LORD graciously gave me, and the XBox360 that I got from my co-worker along with the discs play that came with it, the CronusMAX dongle I use or keyboard and mouse cross-over in the XBox360, the extra XBox360 console, and of course the groceries, and the foods that is given me once in a while. And the special gift of everyday life, breath, health, and more.

TIME: 7:24AM - Yours truly is also very thankful for the tracts that this guy can buy from different believer stores (even online) like Gospel Tracts and Bible Society, and MWTB (Moments With The Book).

DATE: December 31, 2015 (Thursday) - It's New Year's eve. And it 2016 is fast approaching! Next year's pages will be on the next page (Page 2). The good LORD has given me another day of HIS infinite grace. The pictures below is today with the many food from the good LORD. And for the family and their friends (to pray for that they may know the SAVIOUR).
