If not because of the countless lives spend just for this day June 12 there wouldn’t be Independence day in the Philippines. Thank you for such brave individuals full of courage, Men of valor looking forward to this day where the Philippines would enjoy freedom.
I’m curious, what freedom really is? Is she that great? that anyone, anybody would be will to die just to have her.
I could name just a few of the priceless lives of Heroes in the Philippine. Our National Hero Jose Rizal, Andres Bonifacio ofounder of KKK, Emilio Aguinaldo the 1st President of Philippines, Gabriela Silang the woman with such bravery and many many more!
But don’t you know the greatest of all the greatest hero on earth was Jesus Christ? He come here on earth not just to save us from the slavery of this physical world but also unto the Spiritual slavery Satan w/c is the prince of this world.
John 14:30 “Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”
John 12:31 “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”
Jesus have overcome the World. John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
When Jesus died on the Cross of Calvary for the remission of Sins. Satan (Death and Sin) was defeated. Jesus have given the (free) gift of Eternal Life and all we have to do have Eternal Life (freedom from Death and Sin)not in this world but in Heaven with God is to accept it. We can do anything to save ourselves.
Ephesians 2:8-9 <strong"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
So, the only thing we should do is not to do good in order to go to heaven but to trust unto Jesus who have the gift of Eternal Life for us and accept it. It is gift! Do you need to pay for the gift? then it isn’t a gift anymore it is buying. Do you need to work for that gift? then it isn’t a gift anymore. It is a salary/wage.
Romans 10:9 “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
