Reminders for Holy Week 2017

PDFPrintE-mail

LIFE INSPIRATIONS: “… For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy…” (Hebrews 10:14, the Holy Bible).

REMINDERS FOR HOLY WEEK 2017: Here is a significant reminder to all those who are professing they are Christians and are even now in the thick of many activities to commemorate Holy Week 2017: the Bible is clear that annual sacrifices and other usual religious practices offered for Holy Week and other supposedly spiritual events will not really cleanse the sins of sinners, but are instead an annual reminder of sins.

In other words, what God’s Holy Book is telling believers worldwide is that, we must all be careful in undertaking commemorative activities for religious or spiritual purposes, like the activities for Holy Week, because they only underscore the continuing sinfulness of all people. In fact, we are asked: “Otherwise, would they not have stopped being offered?”

Good question. The Bible itself hurries to give an answer. It says: “For the worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins.  But those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins…” For those who are truly interested, these verses could be found at Hebrews 10 of the Bible.

FOR HOLY WEEK, IT IS BETTER TO READ, STUDY, THE BIBLE:What then must true believers engage themselves in during Holy Week 2017 so their commemoration of Holy Wek would truly be spiritually beneficial or worthwhile? There would be many answers to this question, but as far as the Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo (or AND KNK, the Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ) Church is concerned, the best would be a further reading and studying of the Bible.

The AND KNK is the Church that Jesus Himself established, as He said in Matthew 16:18, in the “east” or the “far off land”, which is the Philippines (as the Second World War proved quite eloquently), to fulfill His endtime purpose (Isaiah 46:11) of proclaiming the truth that saves (Matthew 24:14)—which is that Jesus is God and Savior, and is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

For the AND KNK preachers, pastors, and teachers, there would be a three-day seminar at Mater Dei, MacArthur Highway, Capas, Tarlac, from April 11 to April 13, 2017. The seminar seeks to immerse these preachers some more on the teachings and the basic doctrine of the Church, to make them more effective defenders of Jesus as God and Savior and as God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

DEEPENING UNDERSTANDING OF WHO JESUS REALLY IS:For all other AND KNK members, the directive is for them to pursue in earnest Bible reading and studies. Of course, they have already been doing Bible studies on a daily basis, as far as practicable, as a pre-requisite to their continued membership with the AND KNK. For this particular Holy Week, however, they are also enjoined to read and meditate some more.

The objective, of course, is to deepen their understanding of the Biblical proofs that Jesus is God and Savior, and is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. There has to be a more thorough appreciation of the fact that they must know these proofs, because each and every AND KNK member assumes the role of a defender of Jesus as God and Savior once they are baptized into the Church.

Perhaps, at this point, those who are already fed up and literally nauseated by the repetitive activities that mark their usual Holy Week celebrations can join the seminar the AND KNK is going to hold on April 11, 12, and 13, 2017, either personally in Capas, Tarlac, or through its Facebook Live broadcast of the salient points of that seminar.
