Good lessons from an unexpected source...Tiktok :)

  God does work in mysterious ways.  He speaks to us even in Tiktok. And this is what my fave friars will be talking about below.  Enjoy.  

Welcome to the upside down world

Why is the world promoting PRIDE?  Why are they hijacking the rainbow and changing the meaning of what it is meant to be or what it stands for?

I guess the world does that sometimes.  I think the world always finds a way to promote their own agenda.  Most of the times it involves money.  Christmas day is supposed to be about the birth of Jesus Christ but the world has made it about Santa Claus.  They even justify this by saying the Santa Claus is St. Nicholas.  The world has also done the same to Easter. When it is supposed to be the day when Jesus Christ conquered sin and death by rising from the dead, and yet the world has made it about a bunny and its eggs.

Not anyone seems to be too keen in changing what Ramadan though.  When I was young and stupid, a few of my boys attempted to do so on our own small circle of friends.  Ramadan for us will be slightly different than what everyone else knows what it is about.

The world is now saying that pride is a virtue when it fact it is a deadly sin.  It is one of the seven deadly ones (pride, lust, anger, gluttony, wrath, sloth and envy) if you don't know. Nothing comes out good when we only attend to our own personal happiness.  When we only think about our very own selves and think that we are the center of the universe. Nothing.  It may seem great in the beginning but it always ends up in a bad way.  

Why are they using the rainbow to symbolize pride?  The rainbow was supposed to be the symbol that reminds us that God will not resort to killing humanity via the Great Flood which he did at the time of Noah.  Is it that they want to mock God?  Well nothing comes out good from mocking God either.  Luckily we have a merciful and patient God else expect something very severe very soon. Anyways, the world has gone crazy.  I would have never imagined that I would live in a time when mothers choose to kill their own children via abortion and call it choice.  I would have never imagined that Sodom and Gomorrah would repeat itself.  

These are times that I would wish and pray that Jesus would decide to come back and reclaim what is truly His.  I am tired of living in this upside down world that we now live in.  I long to be united to orderliness, peace and true love.  I long for God to reign once more and this time for eternity.  I am a little happy though that there seems to be some resurgence and I hope this lasts and eventually end up with Jesus' second coming.

Upon Friar Review: Glowing reviews for The Chosen

 I like the Youtube channel Upon Friar Review.  It's about two Franciscan friars reviewing movies and shows in this channel and I love the way how they deepen my understanding of my Christian faith with the movies and shows that they review. And I am very glad that they have reviewed one of my favourite shows today: The Chosen.  I also like the fact that I share most of their point-of-view about the shows and they teach me as well about it.  So below are the Youtube links as they review Seasons 1 and 2 of The Chosen.   Also, I've linked the headings below to related Amazon items that may interest you.

The 12 Apostles

  In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God. And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

The Book of Job: Synopsis and Lessons

  The Book of Job is a part of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. It is considered one of the most profound and challenging books in the Bible. The central character is Job, a wealthy and righteous man living in the land of Uz. He is known for his piety and devotion to God. Job's life takes a dramatic and tragic turn when Satan challenges his faithfulness. Satan suggests to God that Job's righteousness is a result of his prosperity and that he would curse God if he were to face suffering. God allows Satan to test Job's faith, but with the condition that he does not harm Job physically. Job's suffering begins with the loss of his wealth, his children, and his health. He is afflicted with painful sores and is left in misery. Throughout his ordeal, Job's friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, come to visit him and attempt to provide explanations for his suffering. They suggest that Job must have sinned grievously to warrant such punishment, u
