The problems we are facing are indeed real. But as real as these problems is the Word of God – Bro. Eddie Villanueva
Every day, we are faced with the aggravating condition of the world and of humanity. We can see in the news the horrible deeds that people do just to satisfy their corrupt desires, even to the point of trampling other people’s rights and dignity or using other people for their own personal agenda. Aside from this moral degeneration, let us also not discount the tangible and undeniable sufferings of practically every person living on this planet because of the COVID-19 pandemic and its resulting effects on businesses and world economies.
The problems we are facing are indeed real. But as real as these problems is the Word of God. And as people enlightened and changed by the Word of God, it is our moral duty to share His Word to the world. Let us be bold in sharing the life-giving and life-changing words of the Lord. We cannot just complain of the evils of the world if we are not sharing the Good News of salvation to them. And we also ought to be beacons of hope to everyone who is disheartened and discouraged by this pandemic.
The Lord is good and faithful. As we share His Word, we can be assured that we will be the first to be changed and encouraged by the message that we preach. “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12, NKJV)
So receive the blessings and bounties of God’s Word! Receive His fresh revelations and impartations! Receive the refreshing and restoring power of God! Shalom! Shalom!

God’s Word indeed restores, but we need to read. We need to listen. We need to heed His Word. Revival is re-Bible – Ptr. Bobot Bernardo
We are hard pressed on every side. From the outside, there is a pandemic that has been threatening our health, depleting our finances, jeopardizing our mental and emotional well-being, and disrupting our way of life. From the inside, we have our personal battles: some of us may have fears and worries and stresses… others, loneliness and the pursuit of joy and peace… still others, a gnawing guilt, shame.
The answer to all those? God’s Word. Let us devour God’s unchanging promises—of protection, of provisions, of deliverance, of hope, of peace, of joy. Then let us allow God’s revelation of who He is drown us—He is Mighty Creator, Great Deliverer, Dependable Defender… He stills storms, moves mountains, and breaks bondages… and He cares for us, looks after us, even reaches out to us because He loves us.
That’s just a sampling of what we’ll uncover as we read God’s Word. So this National Bible Week, let us dive in and read. God’s Word indeed restores, but we need to read. We need to listen. We need to heed His Word. Revival is re-Bible. Blessings to us all!
Ptr. Bobot V. Bernardo
