        1. Ok ha, dili lang ka-isko, Bisaya pud pareho! Haha, I’ve been to Kent County in a day tour, particulary Maidstone, Dover and the famous church and district. Akong ngalan si Moses Kent ug ang Gersom (Moses’ firstborn) Clark (Superman’s first name) pseudonym ra nako na. Karon, ako na pud mangutana sa imong ngalan. Cheers kabayan!

        2. CF na lang, if you don’t mind (on purpose ‘ni, para gamay ra personal details ginahatag sa Beast). Wala gani ko social media, lol. But delighted to know parehas kita ginikanan, more so mag-eyeball kita sa Gingharian sa Ginoo. (Often nagsagul-sagol sa utuk ko ang Bisaya/Ilonggo, so you must pardon me, lol). Magluto sa ko! Wala pa mi nakapaniudto, lol. – Manang CF, lol. ๐Ÿ™

        3. CF then, my fellow UP Diliman iskolar ng Bayan! Ag mga trolls na? Kahibawo na ka, ako pud focus lang ko for CHRIST and akong gi balhin sa WordPress ang time nga ako gi budget for Facebook. As in, dili na ko active sa ubang accounts. Magkita ra unta ta sa Gingharian sa atong Ginoo. Ako pud sagul sagul ug Bisaya/Cebuano with English and Tagalog/Filipino. Nice to know your name CF. 99% of those who knew me calls me Kent and 1% of the “pasaway,” calls me Moses.

        4. Ok, Kent (dili nako kalimti ang preference), lol. Tinuod, kinahanglan i-prioritise ang pag-evangelise kay hapit na mag-abot balik ang Ginoo.

          Praying for your ministry, and good health for you and your loved ones. ๐Ÿ™โ˜˜๏ธ

        5. Manang CF, thank you kaayo sa pag ampo. Ampo pud ta mo nga maayo inyong panlawas ug protektahan mo kanunay sa atong GINOO. Kaning tanan signs ni nga maabot na si HESUS pero wa pa ta kahibawo kung kanus-a dyud. Hopefully sa atong lifetime. Pero mangandam lang ta ani perme. Blessings to you and your family!

    1. True, Dora! We all need GOD the SON’s peace in an uncertain 2021 that is still fresh from the shocks of the pandemic and its effects on the socio-economic and (probably) security fields. May GOD’s peace and blessing be upon you this new year!

    1. Happy New Year, Mandy! Let us not be anxious about what this new year stores for all of us. Rather, we strengthen further our faith in JESUS CHRIST. Only He can give peace that surprises us. A peace where in an instant, we forgot the troubles, pain, and distresses but feel the calmness and light.

    1. Happy New Year Ely! ๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ‡โœจ We will face 2021 with a bright hope and the peace from GOD despite its uncertainties! Let us not be anxious but in faith surrender it to JESUS for He is in control. That act gives us the peace like no other. May CHRIST bless you and always be with you in this new year!

    1. I agree with you, Jim! We can have that peace by GOD the FATHER’s grace alone, through faith alone, in CHRIST alone. When we believe in faith in JESUS, He will not abandon us especially in our lowest moments. Dispite life’s distresses, we will be amazed to realized that GOD comforted us, giving us peace like no other. As He did. Happy New Year to you, Nancy, and your kids!

        1. Thank you for the blessings, pastor! Yes, GOD will not abandon His elect whoever they are. We can only see signs in ones life and transformation of ones heart. We will start the subseries on election, Jim, on January 3, 2021 GMT.

    1. True, Crissy! A timely one because the preceeding year is 2020 with all its troubles during the year that is still felt globally. When we have the peace that JESUS can give, we can navigate the new year with a calmed and assured heart whatever 2021 brings. Remember the song, “when CHRIST is in my vessel I can smile at the storm…” Peace! Be still! Blessings to you, your family, and your ministry team!

    1. Thank you too, Tom! We begin this year with still unresolved global problems, pandemic included, that might lead to other problems or fall-out like that of the economy. These uncertainties and new norms/approaches adds up the stresses in life. We who believe in faith alone in GOD’s grace alone through JESUS CHRIST alone knew that this is just a temporal place, as in post, and salvation is assured. With that knowledge, we have peace. JESUS also gives us peace when we needed it most in our life. So, whatever this 2021 brings, we can count on our Savior thatbwe may have peace. Blessings to you and Corinne, Tom!

      1. TY, Kent!
        The world is definitely experiencing great uncertainty with the pandemic and economic fallout. We know that any security the world offers is a mirage. Blessings to you and yours.

        p.s. I was telling Pastor Jimmy that I was looking forward to purchasing the next issue of LSH this past Wednesday but the release date was pushed out to Jan.19 and there’s rumors that the title may be shelved after that because of DC’s troubles, another example of how the things of this temporal world are transitory.

        1. You are right with the analogy, Tom! The stories are dependent on the writers, profitability of the comic title/line, and the financial state of the company that results to the timeline becoming chaotic/fluctuate constantly/rebooted at times. Thus, makes the story temporal. Art imitates life (i.e. the state of one’s life here on earth). Heaven is the permanent home.

    1. Totoo po yon, Ed, the fruit of the Spirit isย love, joy, peace, patience,ย kindness, goodness, faithfulness,ย gentleness,ย self-control (ESV). Ang kapayapaan ay bigay ng Triune GOD/Isang DIYOS Tatlong Personas, at kabilang dito si HESU KRISTO, sa tao. At ito ay iiba sa kapayapaan na alam natin sa mundo. Tanging ang DIYOS lang makapagbigay ng kapayapaang tunay at walang hangganan. Amen?

    1. Amen! You are right, Beth! Sweet peace in our Lord GOD and Savior JESUS CHRIST. No matter what troubles this year brings to us, when we are firmed in our faith in the SON of GOD, we will have sweet peace when we needed it, especially the most. What an assurance from JESUS indeed. Let us face this year with gladness and assured heart. Blessings to you and your family! Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you for your wish Donna! May GOD plant in our hearts the hunger for Him, the reliance on His grace and faithfulness, and the peace He brings. Regardless of what this new year brings, we have an assurance in GOD that minimizes the stress (and susceptibility with this virus). Blessings to you and your loved ones!
