Message of the Day: Diligence is Needed, All Must Strive!

“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.“ (Matthew 7:13-14, NKJV)

The Battle of Bangkusay, June 3, 1571

Today in Philippine History On June 3, 1571, Muslim warriors from Macabebe and Hagonoy, ancient communities north of Manila Bay controlling the mouth of Pampanga River (now part of the Provinces of Pampanga and Bulacan), riding in 40 ancient Southeast Asian colossal warboats called caracoas, fought the newly arrived Spanish invaders in Luzon led by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. Rajah Sulayman, Rajah Matanda, and Lakan Dula already sided with the Spaniards but were waiting for the result of the battle. Hundreds of Visayan tattooed warriors aided the Spaniards in this naval battle by the Manila Bay. A fierce battle ensued; unfortunately, the native forces did not withstand the Spanish Army’s might and owing to advanced firearms, the Spaniards emerged victorious.

Message of the Day: A Restored Relationship between God and Humankind

Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” (Rev. 21:2-4, NKJV)

Message of the Day: The Rapture: Our Glorious Hope!

"For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord." (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, NKJV)
