Hebrews 1 Jesus is not an angel

This morning as i was doing an assignment, last Sunday our Pastor asked us to read Hebrews. I started reading but I got stuck on chapter 1:1-2. (Im such a slacker)
Before going any further.. I looked up on the internet the purpose of this Epistle (wiki) "The primary purpose of the Letter to the Hebrews is to exhort Christians to persevere in the face of persecution. The central thought of the entire Epistle is the doctrine of the Person of Christ and his role as mediator between God and humanity."

Since i got stuck in chapter 1:1-2 I'l talk about it ... actually i will focus on verse 2.
 1 Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. 2 And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe.
1:1
Before GOD spoke the ff ways (to name a few):
1. Angels (eg. Genesis 19:11)
2. A donkey (Numbers 22:28-30)
3. Prophets (Moses, Jeremiah, Elijah, Isaiah,etc)
1:2a
Now GOD speaks to us through Jesus. (period) in lay mans term.. if we have a relationship with Jesus GOD speaks to us... thus the meaning of THROUGH..
  • God speaks to me
  • God puts His law in my heart
  • As i seek Him with all my heart I will find Him
Also GOD promised everything to the Son (Jesus) as an inheritance
What does this mean to us?? If everything is given to Jesus .... fill in your own revelation!

through the Son he created the universe...
  • Through Jesus He creates in me a clean heart
  • Through Jesus I love His creation and I will take care of it
  • Through His Son I will shepherd His flock as He Shepherds me
short and sweet.. deep and meaningful i love HIM! :) I go back to the purpose of this Epistle to encourage us saints to persevere in facing your trials, Jesus is our mediator. Hope you are encouraged~

Law of Attraction

Law of Attraction-
There are many who are starting to get attracted to the Law of Attraction. With the top rating multi-million sales of the Secret and the many Self- help seminars like the Landmark Forum. I want to share my experience regarding this.

Here's a quote from...
Abraham: You did not come into this environment to create through action. Instead, your action is meant to be a way in which you enjoy what you have created through thought.
Esther Hicks

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he..proverbs 23:7

Ever since I remember I have always wanted a perfect life and I strive for perfection. I looked inside me and tried to change my heart from within.. I even attended self-help seminars and bought so many books. But my longing was deep.. so deep that people, knowledge and philosophies, etc cannot fill..

So I got outside help to fill the gap.. relationships, alcohol and even drugs to dull the deep need for significance and p…

Guam Trip

Guam was like a family reunion for me.. i have loads of cousins and little newphews and nieces who live in guam.. I also have a very good japanese dive instructor who happens to own Papalagi dive shop in guam and a chain of dive shops in tokyo (he was in tokyo when we were in guam.) Anyways the trip was special because of family. Il post family pictures as soon as i get copies.

The metro pacific group (producers of the show) treated us like family too!! It was cute to see the group which is composed of married men, be the leaders of the whole project. The wives really supported thier husbands. Truly, the show was a sucess because there was a flow of authority and unity within the group.

Here are some pictures..
