My thoughts and words in plain truth, metaphors, for personal reminder and public sharing..

PLPT 2014

I am blessed and grateful for being allowed or endorsed to join the (first?) Prophetic Leaders and Pastors Training in AFP Theatre at Camp Aguinaldo last April 15 and 16. Disclaimer: I am not a pastor. As for being a leader, aren’t we called to become one? Moreover, I am thankful for being allowed to take a two-day leave albeit the demands from work.

The training was, for me personally, a follow-up of what we had last year at CCT in Tagaytay City. Oh how I miss those days! It was good to see and hear Ptr. Joe Sweet again. He was also in Tagaytay and he’s indeed sweet.

The PLPT was very important because its first day was also the first day of this year’s Passover (Pesach) Holiday. More importantly, it was held on the same day that the first of the Blood Moon Tetrad occurred.

This is Ptr. Neville Johnson during the occurrence of the first Blood Moon tetrad.

No one in the AFP Theatre was superstitious but we are to watch the times and seasons as they mark significant events. Based on history, the first Blood Moon appeared when Jesus Christ was hang on the cross. The second time was during the Inquisition, which according to either Ptr. Neville or Ptr. Joe would put the Nazi to shame. The third Blood Moon tetrad occurred in 1948, the year the State of Israel was born. The next and latest before this year was in 1967, the same year Israel went into Six Day War.

According to Joel 2:31…
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the LORD.

The Blood Moon catches our attention on what is to come. Yes, something great will definitely take place.

It sounds serious and could be grave, but no worries. We just have to trust God. And enjoy a good fellowship.

With friends from Manila and Cotabato, making our dream – having a picture in the middle of the street – come true.

Nepal vs Philippines night

I almost stayed in a bar alone. I went there alone, but happened to meet my Madridista friend Shai and her boyfriend Marqui. That was last Saturday as we watched the friendly match between Nepal and the Philippines. The match was held in Doha, Qatar though.

I’m glad I decided to go. I was having second thoughts because I was tired and feeling awful. Terrible too if I may add. It’s one of those random and rare occasions when I reckoned sulking in a bar. I haven’t actually done that yet. There was just too much going on. But there was also a game. Thought I’d sulk and watch Football at the same time. Glad that it didn’t happen. Just the latter.

My company that night was great. Got to meet a friend again and made a new one. And the Philippines won, 3-0! Would love to meet them again and watch another away game. Come the 26th, when we play against Malaysia. Unless they’re flying to Cebu, because I can’t. Booh! It’s been a while since the last time I’ve been to Cebu.

Wednesday Brooding

I don’t know how to get started with this entry. I don’t even know how and when it exactly started. Nor do I know what to call it. Perhaps, I do know. I’m just short of admitting it.

If I were to trace back, I think it started when I found out about something. It was sort of an unsurprising blow. Still a blow nonetheless. And as I thought ahead, back then, it was “draining,” so to speak.

Then came another, something of the same kind. The previous one hasn’t even been completed in process yet another came. My head feels like swirling right now. It feels terrible.

As I thought about it, since the “second one” followed through, I’ve been wondering if my passion has been spent. Perhaps there still is some left, but the continuous draining events just caught up too much and quite hard to handle given the turn of events and the current situation I am in.

This is no whining for heaven’s sake.

But I am trying to look for that “reason” that kept me going back then. I thought what I had could not be consumed. I thought wrong. But I want it back. I want that relentless energy and passion back.

Going back.. If I were to sum up the feeling I’ve been holding, I’d be pegging  Queen Elsa.

Conceal. Don’t feel. Don’t let them know.

Well, now they know.

Or Mulan. (cue: Reflection)
