“How can you explain God’s existence in this world when you cannot even see Him?”

“Ooopps! No so fast my friend.  Look again on a very powerful microscope and check what protein molecule binds us together?”

Wow!  ‘Laminin,’ believe it or not, in the form of a cross, is the protein molecule that binds our cells and tissues together, as further explained by Louie Giglio on above YouTube video link. Inspired by this truth on ‘Laminin’s’ connection to Jesus with the ‘crucified Christ’ in us, the binding cross that acts as an adhesive for all cells and tissues in our body, everything seen in ‘Laminin,’ is the truth in God’s words, as you may let the Holy Spirit guide to this phenomenon, and while you may read this kindle e-book, as you may open your hearts and souls, may you see ‘God’s kingdom in you’ (one of three ‘Let’s KJOH’ ebooks series thus far) , “‘Laminin,’ Binding Truth of the Cross and Creation, Avoiding Hell, Purgatory and Generational Sins.”  

Praise be the Lord Alleluia! How to avoid Hell, Purgatory and generational sins and curses with the crucified Christ in us in ‘Laminin,’ is further explained on same ebook, with a powerful prayer in it shared to help free us and our ancestors from the bondage of generational sins and curses. [Read on hubpages support post: Supporting Videos and Links for ebook:  “‘Laminin,’ Binding Truth of the Cross and Creation, Avoiding Hell, Purgatory and Generational Sins”] ImageAbove photo of the crucified Christ was taken at Saint Augustine Church, Culver CIty, CA on March 2013.

Have anyone notice, each time we come short of abiding in Jesus, there are signs that seem to remind us we need to go back to Him?

If not, do we not see how we may feel guilty in our hurts and pains as we listen more to our pride with malice in our hearts? Read this e-book and see how you may see ‘God’s kingdom in you.”

As in Matthew 10:34, Jesus said addressed to those who refuse to believe in His words, “Do not suppose that I come to bring peace to the earth.  I do not come to bring peace but a sword.”

A daunting challenge to us all that in His words come greater power, and anyone who refuse to abide and believe, may not find peace in himself, in his household, in his community or in his nation, rather, more self inflicted pain and stress.

May humility and obedience to God in Jesus, believing and following the truth in His words and commands, guide us in our everyday life, as in the humbling examples of our new pope in Pope Francis, and that of Saint Francis himself, may we become stronger in our faith in giving honor to Him as our Lord, Savior and True Master, that in Him, truth and peace may reign.

Image“Alkaline from lemon? Impossible.”

That is what I thought it was too, impossible.  And yes, despite being a citrus fruit and drink, juice from lemon turns into alkaline as it gets absorbed in your body.

Can it then help heal arthritis?  Yes is the answer as you may read on this link from Yahoo Voices, ‘Five Health Problems you can treat with Lemon Juice,’ including kidney stones and stomach problems.

That is why many call it a ‘wonder fruit’ as it has many healthy uses aside from strengthening our dynamic, God-given, immune system.  Its cleansing, anti-viral and anti-bacterial elements makes it a low cost therapy.

Effective on Warts?

I have seen it effective on warts.  Lemon, with its anti-viral properties, can help destroy the warts virus.

Consistently rubbing on the affected area of the skin with lemon when you wake up in the morning and before bedtime, using a cotton swab, until it reddens or a trickle of blood comes out of it, after washing with warm water and re-applying lemon juice on it to help neutralize the remaining virus, can produce surprising positive results in a few days.

How do I know?  I do it on my face, and I can see great results as it helps cleanse and smoothen my face.

No wonder I see lemon as part of the ingredients in some facial cleansing lotions or cream.

Sometimes I just apply a freshly cut lemon fruit portion and rub it on my face, let it dry as you take out the remaining pulp bits from your face, and voila, you have a lemon cleansed face.  You may want to rinse your face after about half an hour before bedtime with your spouse to remove any sour tasting remnant on your face, lol.

Duct taping a bigger wart after a lemon application may help contain and hasten the healing process.

Helps Heal Diabetes too? 

Yes, Virginia, many posts on the web support this.

I found this link from, “Benefits of Lemon and Diabetes,” by Elizabeth Woolley, quite informative and suits my research, choosing from among four interesting sources.

It tells us of lemon being an effective supplement in helping  heal diabetes among others including “sluggish digestion, constipation, some allergies, sinus problems” and more.

The effects of natural supplements as remedies for certain illnesses may differ from one individual to another though.

I seem to have noticed the more you believe in its healing benefits, the more it may work.

In other words, faith, for me, is a vital element in every healing process and since we were all created by God, in Jesus, comes our true healer.

If many illnesses have been healed by faith, some of these illnesses attributed to things of evil in the olden days, it is in believing in Jesus and abiding in Him that we may see the fullness of healing.  Do you believe this?

As in Act 5:12-16, “Many signs were done among the people at the hands of the apostles.  They were all together in Solomon’s portico. None of the others dared to join them, but the others esteemed them. Yet, more than ever, believers in the Lord, great numbers of men and women, were added to them.  Thus, they even carried the sick out in the streets and laid them on cots and mats so that when Peter came by, at least a shadow may fall on one or another of them. A large number of people from the towns in the vicinity of Jerusalem also gathered, bringing the sick and those disturbed by unclean spirits, and they were all cured.”

15 Hidden Health Secrets of Lemon

Reading further on another helpful link,, it tells us of 15 other health hidden secrets of lemon.

Now I know lemon can help heal acne.

How about fatigue, exhaustion, dizziness, nervousness, anxiety and the like, that can be caused by stress?  I never knew drinking lemon juice can help heal too.  And so does a lemon room freshener for employees working in an office, it is found to cause relief and helps make them efficient.

For canker sore, and to help protect tooth enamel, chewing lemon and waiting for about an hour before brushing your teeth is reportedly effective.

Check it out on said link on and feel more confident using lemon as a versatile natural remedy, including skin remedies for corns and calluses, eczema, for fever, cold or flu, for halitosis, for hypertension together with garlic, honey and onions, to help lower your bad cholesterol level, as an insect repellent, as a bug bite therapy, as a sleep inducing element especially when mixed with insomnia healing herbs like chamomile, hops and valerian, helps in stomach health, helps relieve pain once rubbed on affected areas of the body and it helps fight varicose and spider veins with vein strengthening properties.

I once had allergies on my arms and some parts of my body, and I presumed it was from the micro-fiber material wrapped around a reclining computer armchair we had.  I applied lemon juice on it until it gradually disappeared.

You may have micro-fiber dust flying inside your room with furniture wrapped with it, be wary if you find allergy spots on your skin, it may be causing the allergy.

I have come across lemon’s fat dissolving ways too that helps lower down weight.

Wow!  Is that not amazing?  I won’t be surprised if you would discover a lot more remedies learning from this resource.

Sharing these secrets with others can be helpful but be wary of possible ‘don’t do’s’ that same link may further help educate you to know.

Our body is equipped with an immune system.  It is a part of God’s creation in our body.

Once the immune system is neutralized or weakens, unfortunately, by some medication, by certain foods we may have consumed or by certain virus or bacteria transferred into the human body by contact,  it may be important to keep it back in shape again or revitalized for renewed strength.

Believing in natural healing and in the power of our faith in Jesus, I have learned to live in the essence of my faith, using natural remedies being at best, effective, as we learn to humble ourselves more to God’s commands, that we may better minimize stress in our lives, living by His words of love and forgiveness.

I firmly believe that spiritual health helps bring about a sustainable physical health.

Thank God I have seen His goodness, using only natural supplements to keep me in good health.

I have read from reliable sources how some medications can harm our immune system, and this finding I have come to believe especially so when I regained back my health doing natural means, totally stopped by reliance on prescribed medication, and trusting more on God’s words, relying more on my faith.

Will it work on you?  Only if you do believe.

“I hate you!  You never loved me!  I don’t want to see your face again, ever!”

“You never listened to me and you never tried to understand me.  You’re such a bore and I hate being with you.”

“I have always been right and you know it.  You have been wrong all the time.  Anyone who does not agree with me is no better than dead.”

“I know that I can do anything as long as I believe I can do it.  I do not have to believe in Jesus or in anyone to achieve my goals.  By believing in myself alone, I can do it.”

“I believe I can live forever as long as I do so believe I can.  I do not have to believe in Jesus.  Nobody can make me believe in him.”

Are these words in any way familiar to you?  Are these of God or from the evil one?

While it is true that we may believe what we may want to believe, and this is from our own ‘free will,’ may not our emotions or our past negative or traumatic experiences hinder us from believing in what is true in God’s words, and from believing what is true in Jesus.

[Read this post as we may seek the truth about God:   God or Mammon – to Serve only One Master]

In John 14:6, Jesus answered, “I am the truth, the way and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

How many times have we been carried away by our emotions?   And how many times have we come into trouble because of this?

Recently, another senseless killing and violence in Aurora, Colorado was all over the news.  The suspect, a young 24 year old PhD student from San Diego, California, James Holmes,  reportedly peppered bullets while inside a movie theater among a big crowd of Batman moviegoers, all wanting to see the popular “The Dark Knight Rises.”

[Read more on YahooNews:  Witnesses: Chaos and Confusion Inside a Colorado Movie Theater Shooting]

Influenced by the famed Batman’s great nemesis in ‘Joker’ or not, as others may have creatively surmised after seeing him fancily appearing in court for the first time sporting an ‘orange’ dyed hair – as on this related link on YahooNews – we are once again challenged in our faith as we may begin to reflect on the true purpose of our being in this life.

Would we rather face life as a ‘joke’ with all the lures of materialism around us or would we face it in truth, that no material thing in this life will ever give us true contentment, true peace or true happiness in this life because ‘everything in the world is just passing,’ and ‘whether we like it or not, everything material will never last, including our life.’

Now, if we see in Lucifer the ever cunning and intelligent master of evil gets into our hearts and soul, would we not rather be set free from all these and return to our True Master in Jesus?

And again, is it not our foolish pride, selfishness and malice in our hearts, the lack of love and understanding, and the lack of forgiveness as we let material things rule our mind, has this not caused division among all peoples in the world?

Is it not evil around us that tells us not to believe in God, in Jesus, that we may remain confused and lost as we may learn to trust more what is deceiving and live in darkness?

How many have we already seen, senseless killings and all, here in the US and around the world, with mostly innocent men and women, many times including children, as hapless and defenseless victims.  Is it not in Jesus’ words that he said not to deny him, lest we do not want to have peace  in our lives, as in Matthew 10:34?

How many more will we have to watch and see, while we sit on in the comfort of our homes, in awe, in sadness, yet powerless against all that is evil around us.

It is not the ‘absence of God’ in our lives that has helped encourage all these?

[Read on related post:  The Evil Virus Spread by our Ego]

Remember my friends, God in Jesus has always been there in our spirit carrying us in our hurts, despair and disappointments in life.  Our ever forgiving and ever righteous God wants us back in his flock.  He does not want us to stay in darkness and be lost in evil.  He wants us to follow him and remain in his flock.

Jesus is our hope for ‘in him and in him alone is our salvation,’ make no mistake about that, and never entertain any doubt, lest we want the evil one become our master, and see our spirit perish with him?

Looking back at the time of our great fore parents in Adam and Eve, they have fallen short of God’s grace as they fell prey to the deceitful ways of Satan, embodied by the serpent, promising them wisdom and knowledge if they only believed in him and take of and eat the forbidden fruit.  Hence, just like Satan and the fallen angels having been outcast from heaven, they have to be outcast from Paradise, to live and endure mortal trials and suffering as penalty for their disobedience and yes, always wary of Satan’s unending volleys of temptation thrown onto their path along with the pressures as they face the realities of their shortened life where death is inevitable from their sin, that all of us, their descendants, have to live with, until our True Messiah in Jesus came to save us from this ‘original’ sin.

And in that basic community blessed by marriage, where man and woman share their life together, and if so blessed with children as husband and wife, the husband becomes the head, as Christ is the head of the church, as the true bearer of God’s truth in his words, to help guide and enlighten his wife and family ‘as Christ loves his church,’ as in Ephesians 5:25,  and the wife, to ‘submit to your husband as to the Lord,’ as in Ephesians 5:22.

While Eve was created from the rib of Adam, that Adam may feel the joy as he sees himself gifted and blessed by God with a partner, one taken from his own flesh, and thus be freed from loneliness, is it not the message of love, honor, respect and unity of purpose in God seen here as the main focus, not superiority of position out of selfishness, material pride or any form of malice?

No form of manipulation or retaliation to gain advantage over the other must ever rule, otherwise, would there be love?  Giving and forgiving is the key to a lasting relationship, and as husband and wife may live in the flesh, they may share the joys of living in love, united in passion for each other, as they may remain in one flesh and one body in Christ Jesus, ‘through him all things were made’ as in John 1:3, and may see eternal life in them, together with their children as one family, with love and forgiveness in their hearts and in their endless faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

If God created us out of ‘love’ and continues to do so that he gave us His only begotten Son in Jesus, to sacrifice and die for us on the cross, purchasing us from our sins, and through the power in his resurrection and the power of his mercy – I pray that we be enlightened by this truth, and strongly encourage everyone to read the bible starting with the Acts of the Apostles, and see how the power of the Holy Spirit has guided the apostles, that we too may find strength while we seek the truth in this life, the true purpose of our being and see the glory of God in Christ Jesus reign in our mind, in our hearts and spirit, forever, as we may have eternal life in us.

Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, our True Master

As in John 1:3, “Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.”

Standing alone ‘majestic’ and ‘imposing’ on a hilltop overlooking the awesome Mike Sharpe’s Ranch.

“The Tree of Hope,” that’s what I call it, unmindful of what Mike Sharpe or others may call it.

This thing of beauty may have a few leaves on it but its massive trunk and many branches tells us so many things about life.

“Life is what you make it,” and so does the old saying goes.  But if there is hope, that dream remains alive in every person.

And one’s positive outlook in life help much guide one to the life ahead.

What more can be positive when one realizes that while life has a beginning, it may never end after all?  Or will it?

It depends on your perspective, or your outlook in life, perhaps?

Yes, it depends largely on what you believe in.

Whoever or however you may think made this world, and how it came into being what it is and how we see it today, would it ever matter much to you if you have not entertained the question that asks us, “where do we go when we die?”

Atheists may say, “I care less, for I know there is no God, but I do believe in science because it’s what I see and it has made my life better and worth living.”

No matter how I look at this statement, don’t you see it selfish and entertains hopelessness?

Is it rather evil in our ego that makes us think this way, or is it God?

[Read on hubpages:  The Evil Virus Spread by Our Ego]

If we believe in God, and through Jesus, he created us all and all other things in this world since the beginning, as in John 1:3, don’t you think he has the rightful control over us in our reaction and response to all things, including the gift talents, of science and technology?

From us comes our own ‘free will’ to react, but God triggers a response to every reaction we may create.  Our body sends vivid signals to him and quickly or in no time, a fitting response comes, and every time, he asks us quietly like a voice from inside us, “Who is your master, is it Me in Jesus, or is it Mammon or evil?

Just gazing at the ‘Tree of Hope,” as it greets all visitors to Mike Sharpe’s Ranch, I can see why faith in Jesus can give us hope, as we may see beyond what life presents in our day to day trials in our life long journey towards the truth, the same way that Mike Sharpe may have found hope while given that great opportunity to grow his business as a partner in a company that shares in that truth of our being, in that truth of sharing our talents and pooling our efforts and resources together onto a great mission, where we may express our love for our Creator by unselfishly helping others win with their love ones in this life and the next, and by doing so, may be blessed from their efforts, be it in kind or in spirit, irregardless, it is something that you may gain rewarded in your living sacrifice, that others may prosper.

With man, this may be impossible, but “with God all things are possible,” as in Matthew 19:26.

In his 30 fruitful years partnering with the company and helping many achieve financial freedom and independence, Mike Sharpe has remained humble, for he knows that in one’s humility comes greatness, and in a humble man comes honor and respect.

Enjoy my shared pictures and videos during the trip and feel a part of God’s greatness as we reflect in his words and the beauty of his goodness as he blesses, to always humble ourselves before him as part of his creation:

From A Day of Beauty at Mike Sharpe Ranch June 30 2012

from edwin camera 687Happy and humble, Manny Pacquiao, his power comes from what the Holy Spirit wants the poor to strive for greatness, giving back to Him for His greater glory, and where ‘with God all things are possible,’ as in Matthew 19:26.

“Manny Pacquiao won over Timothy Bradley, it was very clear, yet he lost by split decision.  Why so?”

See the humble Manny Pacquiao, unperturbed, he keeps his meekness intact, with faith in The Lord, he has won in many ways.

“It’s a rip-off.”  “The fight was fixed,”  “Bob Arum is the true winner.”  “How about those who bet on Pacquiao and lost?  Do they deserve a refund?  How about those who paid for their tickets to see the bout?  How about the watching public?”

“Was Pacquiao and his team aware of this plan?  How about Bradley’s team?”

“Did the Mafia have a hand on this?  Or were the two judges who ruled the fight against Pacquiao in anyway gay or supporters?”

Oh what chaos?  Everybody is affected by wrong decisions on that fateful night of June 9, 2012.  It’s malice against malice.  It never ends.

Unless there is love, truth, justice and peace in one’s heart, evil may always prevail.

Did Manny Pacquiao handle the outcome professionally?  I think he did, and with ‘class.’

He knew he won the fight.  There was no doubt about it. He did not blame the judges.  But when worldly things work, and man allows it to flourish or prosper, then is man not the real loser?

As in 1 John 2:15-17, Jesus said, “Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love of the Father is not in them.  For anything in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life – comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.”

Did you think ‘boxing’ won, are was it really Arum who won being the promoter?  How about Manny Pacquiao or Tim Bradley?

When fairness, justice and truth is lost, is not everything lost?  What are we teaching our kids and the new generation … to ‘love the world’ and not God who created us all and without him we are nothing?

I hate to say this but despite our God given wisdom, gifts and talents, we still forget God’s power, God’s wisdom, and God’s control over us.

[Read on hubpages related post link:  Even in Death Our Spirit Lives as we May Die in Christ, by Faith in God’s Will We Live]

Are the signs that we see around us reminding us to return to God in Jesus, not at all clear that we have to love the world more than our need to love God and his commands?  How many more people have to suffer because of man’s worldliness?

Are we not supposed to think more like matured adults, noble and true to one another, instead of thinking like confused, directionless, self-propagating incorrigible who have forgotten the truth about our living spirit that may only perish in hell if God so wills it, especially so when malice, pride, selfishness and love for material things so rule us instead of our love for God and of others?

Dissecting the Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley Fight

See these three sets of videos from YouTube with my own views incorporated on given annotations as you may want to compare it with your own findings and analysis of the fight, and we will start with the first four rounds set:

Manny Pcaquiao clearly dominates over Bradley from Round 1 to Round 4, Bradley feeling the powerful combination punches coming from Manny and this has made him hesitant into attacking Manny.

For the first time, we see a very cautious fighter in Bradley, yet, very hungry for the kill, which, unfortunately, has become more and more difficult with Manny’s remarkable boxing talents and skills.

With lesser boxers he may have perfected his attacks, but with Manny, he appears like a mesmerized hunter now a prey.  See the power, the quickness and the boxing skills of both boxers and I see Manny way ahead on points on each round, where on the latter part of Round 4, Bradley is seen quite groggy over Manny’s more accurate, heavy strikes and relentless attacks.

  1. 1st Round:  1st part of 8, 7th and 8th part of 8 (ie., in 8 full sections of video) Manny connects to the body  head of Bradley.  Pretty powerful punches – overwhelmingly fast and furious, it’s Manny’s round;
  2. Round 2:  Manny connects on Bradley on 1, 4, 8 and 9 (ie., in sections of 9 parts of round 2) with a near head butt on 8.  Bradley clips and does half punches on Manny’s side on 2. Overwhelmingly, it’s Manny’s round;
  3. Round 3:  Manny connects on 1(body punch), 3, 4 and 5(hard combinations punches) 7(power head punch), 8 and 9 with hard combination punches that confuse Bradley.  Bradley again clips and do side body punches on Manny on 2. Not a doubt, Manny’s round;
  4. Round 4:  Manny connects telling punches on Bradley 2, 3(hard head punches), 7, 8 and 9(power combination head punches); Bradley connects on 2(head punch). Definitely Manny’s round.

The second video set, from Rounds 5 to 8 comes next:

Timothy Bradley starts to back-up more often from Round 5 onwards as he starts feeling Manny’s powerful punches and rightfully, earns Bradley’s respect, and yes, would he not want to avoid a possible knockdown from a rushing power puncher, otherwise, his unblemished ‘no loss’ and ‘no knowdown’ record may come to naught?

He appears dazed in the latter parts of Rounds 5, 6 and 7, while on 8 he slowly recovers as Manny slows down a bit. Is it over confidence on Manny’s part knowing he’s way ahead on points?

  1. Round 5:  Manny connects on Bradley on sections 3, 7, 8 and 9 of said round; Bradley connects on Manny on 1 but starts backing up on 3 onwards having felt Pacquiao’s power punches;  Bradley appears dazed on 8 and 9. Manny seen still very dominant on this round;
  2. Round 6:  Manny connects on Bradley on 2 (power jab), 3, 4 (power jab), 6, 7, 8 and 9;  Bradley connects on Manny on 1;  Bradley appears dazed from 6 to 9. Another overwhelming Pacquiao round;
  3. Round 7:  Manny connects on Bradley on 2 (body punch), 4 (power jab), 6(combination), 7(power combination) and 8(power punch);  Bradley connects on Manny on 1(clips with soft punches to Manny’s body side), 2 and 6(body punches); Bradley dazed on 8 and 9. Another Pacquiao round as Bradley backs up again;
  4. Round 8:  Manny connects on Bradley on 4(body punch) and 9 (power combination); Bradley connects on Manny on 1(body punch) and 4(jab); exchange of punches on 6 and 8. Jinky Pacquiao seen stooping to pray at 9?  It’s Manny’s round – with more combination and power punches although he has slowed his tempo a bit, perhaps, because he knows he is leading by a wide margin?

And the third set, but not the least, are taken from Rounds 9 to 12:

On Rounds 9, 11 and 12, I see Pacquiao still on the upperhand despite a more aggressive Bradley.  On the first four rounds, Bradley had difficulty connecting, while in the middle rounds, Bradley was feeling Manny’s power punches that nearly floored him. On Round 10 though, I see a DRAW on the exchange.  I saw, nevertheless, Pacquiao’s punches delivering the more telling blows on Bradley.

The fight was not even close as all seen on the collected video footage, on the manner Pacquiao relentlessly threw his punches, he was mostly on the attack, he was the more aggressive fighter.

Why the judges had almost the same score at 115 to 113, is this not a great mystery that Sherlock Holmes may need to unravel?

Further, two judges surprisingly favored Bradley, they were Duane Ford (74) and C.J.Ross, and only one, Jerry Roth (71), favoring Pacquiao despite the clear win in most, if not on all, rounds in Pacquiao’s favor?  Now, you be the judge.

  1. Round 9:  Manny connects on Bradley on 1, 2(power body and head punches putting Bradley off balanced), 3 and 4(body and head punches), 5(body and head punches), 6(head punch) and 9(powerful combination punches);  Bradley connects on Manny on 2 and 4(body punch) and 7(combination punches);  exchanges on 9. Clearly Manny’s round with more power combination punches thrown,  and not Bradley’s as concluded by many others although he was seen on a rare surprising and daring attack mode during rounds 8 and 9;
  2. Round 10:  Manny connects on Bradley on 4(power combi punches), 8 and 9(combi punches);  Bradley connects on Manny on 2, and 6(head combi punches) and 8(head punches);  Bradley backing on 3 and 5 to avoid Manny’s punches, counter exchanges on 5 and 7, and gets off balanced on 8 after Manny’s power jab.  A DRAW, although clearly, Pacquiao delivered more power punches.  I would have to give Bradley some credit for his determination and fighting heart.  Honestly, I still see Pacquiao ahead on this round, however slower he might have been since round 7;
  3. Round 11:  Manny connects on Bradley on 4, 6 and 7(power head punches), and on 8 and 9(head combination punches);  Bradley connects on Manny on 2(jab), 3(body punch) and 8(head punch).  More powerful combination punches – Manny clearly won this round;
  4. Round 12:  Manny connects on Bradley on 2, 3 and 9(power head punches); Bradley connects on Manny on 1(combination head punches) and 2(body punch). Exchanges seen on 4 and 6 with Bradley always backing up. Aggressive and power punching, it’s Manny’s round.

Was Timothy Bradley honest enough to accept the Championship Belt?   If he feels comfortable wearing it, will this not be fine?  The official judges for the fight gave it to him, is it not?

It is interesting to note that a few weeks before the fight, another boxing promoter, Murad Muhammad, did he not mention about Arum’s possible plan ‘or was it a plot’ for a rematch, in November 2012, which Timothy Bradley even seconded about a couple of weeks before the fight?

And when a call for an investigation came out, was Bob Arum not washing his hands when he himself was reportedly encouraging an investigation even after 5 independent WBO judges concluded the fight to have been won by Pacquiao?

Duane Ford felt “Bradley gave Pacquiao a ‘boxing lesson’ in the second half of the fight.”  Was that being honest to himself?  My mom at 80 and the other older or regular fans of Pacquiao, are they better judges than Ford?

Watch this YouTube video on Manny Pacquiao’s, Timothy Bradley’s (on wheelchair) and Freddie Roach views on the controversial fight:

"In whatever we do let the 'Light of the World' shine as you gain strength in Him, in Jesus, in the guidance of the Holy Spirit, every single day of your life."

“In whatever we do let the ‘Light of the World’ shine as we gain strength in Him, in Jesus, in the guidance of the Holy Spirit, every single day of our life.”

Good point on conquering ourselves Cindy and Win.

Nice to be a winner indeed.   But for how long?

As you’ve said Cindy, life is short.   What could be better, would it not be a plan for eternity?   If we were with wise men we would be wise as in Proverbs 13:20?   How does being wise compare with the wisdom of God?

Will you not agree with me that being wise here means being as wise as those who follow God’s words?

I know that some people may find my views boring, many times, though, do we realize that we can get confused and get lost focusing our efforts more on material things in this life which may just be reduced to nothingness?  And this may all become meaningless as we come to pass?

St. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 3:16-23,

“Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple.

“Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a “fool” so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight.”

And in Romans 8:36-39, Saint Paul makes it clear how we, as believers, become more than conquerors,

“As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, no any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

With above verses I have learned to understand that truly, ‘man cannot live by bread alone’ as in Matthew 4:4, and it takes more than anything in this world to make man truly happy, and that is believing and living the words of God in Christ Jesus.

And in 1 Corinthians 1:19, Saint Paul in Christ,

“For it is written:

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”

For is not God’s wisdom greater than human wisdom?

If we have to die today, what will we ask our Creator to justify an extension of our life?

But how can we ever ask for an extension when we have not truly believed in Him or have just put Him on the sidelines while we have tried to satisfy our own cravings?

Is this not similar to denying Him?  Is it not better to invest on the long term than on a short term?  Even a true businessman knows this, the only difference being, seeing things beyond this life, which is spiritual.

Did God not say love one another as He has loved us?   Or was it love ourselves first before we love others?

I have tried doing this before and loving my ego for it but what did I get, I was humbled with a mild heart attack, and after 8 years, had a mild stroke, perhaps, as a reminder that I need to refocus my life on Him and share the light of Christ Jesus, His Son, through his love, mercy and forgiveness with others.

While God wants us to be happy in this life, He simply asks us, as we have been gifted with a free will, to put Him at the center of our life that we may better live this life in true peace and happiness, as we live in harmony with His Spirit.

Try to do otherwise, and disregard love for others – a love that is true and responsible – do we not suffer more in pain and put ourselves more into trouble?  We may for a time be happy with our material possessions, but will this really last, or, are pressures from material things creating a hell out of our lives?

Is the evil one just fooling us by veering us away from the truth in Christ’s words and the true meaning of love which is for one another?

When we enjoy life out of the love of others, do we not feel a more profound happiness that lasts with fulfillment in our hearts and spirit?

The beauty that we see with our own eyes may better be pleasing and more enhanced with the beauty that we see from within our spirit.

And God being spirit, can we not better relate to Him also with our hearts and spirit, and in our love and concern for others?

Others may say this is Communism, but does communism really paint a picture of love where there is lack of freedom and the absence of God in our midst?

I remember the words of Jesus to Saint Peter when Peter cut one ear one of Jesus’s captors (but later picked it up and miraculously restored it back), in Matthew 26:52, he said, “Put your sword back in its place, for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.”

Are not the swords of too much materialism, envy and malice towards others causing us to suffer because that is what we have chosen to invest upon?

And in Hebrews 4:12 KJV, it states, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

Praying through the Holy Spirit for discernment may guide us better as we live this life.

Thank you for this opportunity to share in Christ on your post Cindy, Godspeed to all.
