Fill Us With Thy Holy Spirit




The anniversary theme of CAA Seventh-day Adventist Church on May 21, 2011 is "Fill Us with Thy Holy Spririt". It is related to the theme "Revival and Reformation" of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventist Church headed by Pastor Ted Wilson.

The Church was founded on May 20, 1973 in once a large rice field and near salt field in CAA, Las Pinas City.  Few people pioneered the church but now it has more than 500 registered members as it reached its 38th year.

Several members and visitors from different places have come early before the start of the Sabbath School service.  The special feature of this program is the same title of the theme "Fill us with Thy Holy Spirit".  It describes the different natural characters of a human and a sinner before asking to receive the Holy Spirit. 

Before the Divine Service, the new baptized members of the church are welcomed by the congregation.  The speaker for the Divine Service is Pastor June Canosa who is the present Legal Dept. head of Central Luzon Conference of Seventh-day Adventist and also the former Las Pinas Adventist District Pastor.

During the Sabbath Afternoon Service, the Dorcas Department led the School Supplies giving program for the 84 indigenous children of the church and neighborhood who are enrolled for this school year 2011-2012.  After that, the Children's Dept members share their talents and their experiences regarding the 1st Central Luzon Conference's Children Camping at Southern Asia Pacific Division compound in Cavite.


Below are the videos of the Anniversary Celebration.

Theme: Propesiya Tungo Sa Kaligtasan 
          (Prophecy Towards Salvation)

John 3:5 (Amplified Bible)
Jesus answered, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, unless a man is born of water and [even] the Spirit, he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God.

John 16:7 (Amplified Bible)
However, I am telling you nothing but the truth when I say it is profitable (good, expedient, advantageous) for you that I go away. Because if I do not go away, the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you [into close fellowship with you]; but if I go away, I will send Him to you [to be in close fellowship with you].

John 14:16 (Amplified Bible)
And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby), that He may remain with you forever--

Joel 2:28 (Amplified Bible)
And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.

How  can  we  know that  we  have  received the  Holy  Spirit?

The “Fiftieth” Experience

PENTECOST - meaning the “fiftieth”
           - also known as the “Feast of  Weeks” or “Feast of the First fruits/Harvest”
           - it commemorates the giving the law after their departure from Egypt.

Feast of the Passover-Good Friday
Feast of the Unleavened Bread-Black Saturday
Feast of the Harvest (1st day)-Easter Sunday


Feast of Weeks(7 full weeks feast)
Last day(50th Day)

 The  Pentecost  in Acts  2   is  the  most special  Pentecost!

They gathered in one place. (Acts 1:12; 2:1)
They earnestly prayed for ten days.
The Holy Spirit came in the form of a wind and a tongue of fire.
They started to speak in tongues.
Peter preached to the crowd.
Then, many new converts had been added to their number.


New  Total  Experience!

What could have they experienced with God at that time?
  • His PRESENCE
“And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.”
-ACTS 2:2,3


“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?”
- 1Corinthians 6:19

Galatians 5:22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

  • His POWER
“And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:”
-ACTS 2:17,18

“God calls not for the able, but for the available”


2 Timothy 1:7
NIV
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self- discipline.

How much TIME do you give for God’s service?

“Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.”
-ROMANS 13:11 ESV
  •  Telling an
  •  Infinite
  •  Message of
  •  Eternity

  • His PLAN
“When they heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the apostles, ‘Brothers, what shall we do?
-ACTS 2:17,18

Ephesians 1:5 NIV
He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will—

Ephesians 1:6 NIV
 to the praise of His  glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One He loves.

John 14:17 KJV
Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

          (Prophecy Towards Salvation)

Revelation 21:10 (Amplified Bible)
Then in the Spirit He conveyed me away to a vast and lofty mountain and exhibited to me the holy (hallowed, consecrated) city of Jerusalem descending out of heaven from God,

John 14:1-3 (Amplified Bible)
DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me.
In My Father's house there are many dwelling places (homes). If it were not so, I would have told you; for I am going away to prepare a place for you.
And when (if) I go and make ready a place for you, I will come back again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you may be also.

Gaano  ba  kaganda ang  inihandang tahanan  ng  Dios  sa atin?
(How beautiful will be our home prepared by God?)
1 Corinthians 2:9 (Amplified Bible)
But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed].

Revelation 21:11
Clothed in God's glory [in all its splendor and radiance]. The luster of it resembled a rare and most precious jewel, like jasper, shining clear as crystal.

Revelation 21:16
The city lies in a square, its length being the same as its width. And he measured the city with his reed--12,000 stadia (about 1,500 miles); its length and width and height are the same.

Revelation 21:18-19
The wall was built of jasper, while the city [itself was of] pure gold, clear and transparent like glass.
The foundation [stones] of the wall of the city were ornamented with all of the precious stones. The first foundation [stone] was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony (or white agate), the fourth emerald,

Revelation 21:21 (Amplified Bible)
And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each separate gate being built of one solid pearl. And the main street (the broadway) of the city was of gold as pure and translucent as glass.

Revelation 22:1 (Amplified Bible)
THEN HE showed me the river whose waters give life, sparkling like crystal, flowing out from the throne of God and of the Lamb

Ano  ang  nasa  gitna ng  Banal  na  Bayan?
(What is in the middle of the Holy City?)
Revelation 22:2 (Amplified Bible)
Through the middle of the broadway of the city; also, on either side of the river was the tree of life with its twelve varieties of fruit, yielding each month its fresh crop; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing and the restoration of the nations.

Anong  klaseng  mga hayop  ang  ating matatagpuan  sa  Langit?
(What kind of animals are there in heaven?)

Isaiah 11:6
And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion and the fatted domestic animal together; and a little child shall lead them.

Isaiah 11:9
They shall not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

Ano  ang  mangyayari  sa mga  may  kapansanan at  sakit?
(What will happen to disabled and sick people?)

Isaiah 35:5-6 (Amplified Bible)
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
Then shall the lame man leap like a hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing for joy. For waters shall break forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.

Isaiah 33:24 (Amplified Bible)
And no inhabitant [of Zion] will say, I am sick; the people who dwell there will be forgiven their iniquity and guilt.

Ano  ang  isa  pa  sa  hindi  na  natin mararanasan  sa bayang  iyon?
(What's one more thing that we won't experience in that city?)
Revelation 21:4 (Amplified Bible)
God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more, neither shall there be anguish (sorrow and mourning) nor grief nor pain any more, for the old conditions and the former order of things have passed away.

Ano  ang pinakamagandang bagay  na  mararanasan natin  roon?
(What's the best thing that we will experience there?)
Revelation 21:3 (Amplified Bible)
Then I heard a mighty voice from the throne and I perceived its distinct words, saying, See! The abode of God is with men, and He will live (encamp, tent) among them; and they shall be His people, and God shall personally be with them and be their God.

Revelation 21:2 (Amplified Bible)
And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified and adorned for her husband;


Ano  ang  kailangan  na gawin  ng  isang  tao para makapasok  sa  bayangito?
(What is needed by someone to enter to this city?)

John 3:3-5 (Amplified Bible)
Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a person is born again (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience) the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter his mother's womb again and be born?
Jesus answered, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, unless a man is born of water and [even] the Spirit, he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God.

Ano  ang  iniwang  utos ni  Jesus  sa  mga  alagad bago  Siya  umakyat  sa langit?
(What is the command left bu Jesus to his disciples before He ascended into heaven?)

Matthew 28:19-20 (Amplified Bible)
Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be).

Ano  ba  ang  tamang paraan  ng pagbabautismo?
(What is the correct way of baptism?)

BAPTISM
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF IT?


Ang salitang Griego na "baptizo" ay nangangahulugang "ilublob" o "ilubog" o "ibaon" sa ilalim ng tubig.
(The Greek word "baptizo"means "plunge" or "immerse" or "bury" under water.)


John 3:23 (Amplified Bible)
But John also was baptizing at Aenon near Salim, for there was an abundance of water there, and the people kept coming and being baptized.

Mark 1:9-11 (Amplified Bible)
In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
And when He came up out of the water, at once he [John] saw the heavens torn open and the [Holy] Spirit like a dove coming down [to enter] into Him.
And there came a voice out from within heaven, You are My Beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.

Acts 8:36
And as they continued along on the way, they came to some water, and the eunuch exclaimed, See, [here is] water! What is to hinder my being baptized?

Acts 8:38-39
And he ordered that the chariot be stopped; and both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and [Philip] baptized him.
And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord [[a]suddenly] caught away Philip; and the eunuch saw him no more, and he went on his way rejoicing.

Ang mga sinaunang iglesia ay naghahayag ng paraang ginamit sa bautismo.
(The ancient church reveals the method used in baptism- through immersion.)

-Cappadocia, Turkey
-Ephesus, Turkey
-Iglesia ng Unang Siglo sa Filipos
-St. John of Lateran
-St. Vladimir's Cathedral

Hindi hanggang sa Konsilo ng Ravenna noong 1311 A.D. na opisyal na tinanggap ang pagwisik at pagbuhos bilang katumbas sa paglubog sa ritual ng bautismo.
(Not until the Council of Ravenna in 1311 AD officially accepted spraying and pouring as equivalent to dipping in baptism.)

Ano  ang  isa  sa mga  dahilan  ng pagpapabautismo?
(What is one of the reasons in being baptized?)

Matthew 3:15 (Amplified Bible)
But Jesus replied to him, Permit it just now; for this is the fitting way for [both of] us to fulfill all righteousness [that is, to perform completely whatever is right]. Then he permitted Him.

Ano  ang  sumisimbolo sa  Bautismo? (What symbolizes baptism?)
Romans 6:3-4 (Amplified Bible)
Are you ignorant of the fact that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?
We were buried therefore with Him by the baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious [power] of the Father, so we too might [habitually] live and behave in newness of life.

Kamatayan sa ating lumang makasalanang landas ng buhay.
(Death to our old sinful way of life.)

Paglilibing ng ating mga kasalanan sa libingang tubig ng bautismo.
(Bury our sins in the tomb waters of baptism.)

Pagkabuhay na muli sa isang bagong buhay kay Kristo.
(Resurrection to a new life in Christ.)


Ano  ang  kailangan nating  gawin  upang mabautismuhan?
(What do we need to do to be baptized?)

Step 1:
Magsisi (Repent)


Acts 2:38 (Amplified Bible)
And Peter answered them, Repent (change your views and purpose to accept the will of God in your inner selves instead of rejecting it) and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of and release from your sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Step 2:
Maniwala (Believe)


Mark 16:16 (Amplified Bible)
He who believes [who adheres to and trusts in and relies on the Gospel and Him Whom it sets forth] and is baptized will be saved [from the penalty of eternal death]; but he who does not believe [who does not adhere to and trust in and rely on the Gospel and Him Whom it sets forth] will be condemned.

Step 3:
Matuto (Learn)


Matthew 28:19-20 (Amplified Bible)
Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be).

Mga Hakbang Tungo sa Bautismo (Steps toward Baptism)

1. Repent- a true sorrow for sin.
2. Believe- accepting Jesus as Savior and Lord.
3. Learning- learning the essentials of the faith in the Bible.

Nangangahulugan  ba na  ang  bautismo  ay magpapabilang  sa  iyo sa  Iglesia  ni  Jesus?
(Does Baptism makes you belong to Jesus's Church?)

Acts 2:47 (Amplified Bible)
Constantly praising God and being in favor and goodwill with all the people; and the Lord kept adding [to their number] daily those who were being saved [from spiritual death].

1 Corinthians 12:13 (Amplified Bible)
For by [means of the personal agency of] one [Holy] Spirit we were all, whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free, baptized [and by baptism united together] into one body, and all made to drink of one [Holy] Spirit.

Ephesians 4:5 (Amplified Bible)
[There is] one Lord, one faith, one baptism,

Acts 22:16 (Amplified Bible)
And now, why do you delay? Rise and be baptized, and by calling upon His name, wash away your sins.

2 Corinthians 6:2 (Amplified Bible)
For He says, In the time of favor (of an assured welcome) I have listened to and heeded your call, and I have helped you on the day of deliverance (the day of salvation). Behold, now is truly the time for a gracious welcome and acceptance [of you from God]; behold, now is the day of salvation!

Because He has fixed a day when He will judge the world righteously (justly) by a Man Whom He has destined and appointed for that task, and He has made this credible and given conviction and assurance and evidence to everyone by raising Him from the dead.

Revelation 14:6-7 (Amplified Bible)
Then I saw another angel flying in midair, with an eternal Gospel (good news) to tell to the inhabitants of the earth, to every race and tribe and language and people.
And he cried with a mighty voice, Revere God and give Him glory (honor and praise in worship), for the hour of His judgment has arrived. Fall down before Him; pay Him homage and adoration and worship Him Who created heaven and earth, the sea and the springs (fountains) of water.

 Daniel 7:9-10 (Amplified Bible)
I kept looking until thrones were placed [for the assessors with the Judge], and the Ancient of Days [God, the eternal Father] took His seat, Whose garment was white as snow and the hair of His head like pure wool. His throne was like the fiery flame; its wheels were burning fire.
A stream of fire came forth from before Him; a thousand thousands ministered to Him and ten thousand times ten thousand rose up and stood before Him; the Judge was seated [the court was in session] and the books were opened.

Anu- ano  ang  mga aklat  na  nangabuksan?
(What books were opened?)

Malachi 3:16 (Amplified Bible)
Then those who feared the Lord talked often one to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared the Lord and who thought on His name.

Then I heard a strong (loud) voice in heaven, saying, Now it has come--the salvation and the power and the kingdom (the dominion, the reign) of our God, and the power (the sovereignty, the authority) of His Christ (the Messiah); for the accuser of our brethren, he who keeps bringing before our God charges against them day and night, has been cast out!

Revelation 12:9 (Amplified Bible)
And the huge dragon was cast down and out--that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels were flung out along with him.

And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

Even the Father judges no one, for He has given all judgment (the last judgment and the whole business of judging) entirely into the hands of the Son,

Proverbs 23:31-33 (Amplified Bible)
Do not look at wine when it is red, when it sparkles in the wineglass, when it goes down smoothly.

You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.

Romans 5:12 (Amplified Bible)
Therefore, as sin came into the world through one man, and death as the result of sin, so death spread to all men, [no one being able to stop it or to escape its power] because all men sinned.

Romans 6:23 (Amplified Bible)
For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord.

Revelation 1:18 (Amplified Bible)
And the Ever-living One [I am living in the eternity of the eternities]. I died, but see, I am alive forevermore; and I possess the keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead).

Paano  ba  ginawa  ng Dios  ang  tao?
(How did God make the man?)

Genesis 2:7 (Amplified Bible)
Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath or spirit of life, and man became a living being.

body + breath of life= living soul
living soul- breath of life= dead soul

Saan  mapupunta  ang alabok  at  espiritu  ng taong  namatay?
(Where do the dust and the spirit of the dead goeth?)
Ecclesiastes 12:7 (Amplified Bible)
Then shall the dust [out of which God made man's body] return to the earth as it was, and the spirit shall return to God Who gave it.

May  alam  pa  ba  ang mga  patay?
(Does the dead still knows anything?)

Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 (Amplified Bible)
For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; and they have no more reward [here], for the memory of them is forgotten.
Their love and their hatred and their envy have already perished; neither have they any more a share in anything that is done under the sun.

Dadalawin  ka  pa  ba ng  mga  taong namatay?
(Will the dead people still visit you?)
Job 7:9-10 (Amplified Bible)
As the cloud is consumed and vanishes away, so he who goes down to Sheol (the place of the dead) shall come up no more.
He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more.

Sino  pala  iyong  mga nagpapakita  na  mga multo?
(Who are the ghosts that shows?)
Revelation 16:14 (Amplified Bible)
For really they are the spirits of demons that perform signs (wonders, miracles). And they go forth to the rulers and leaders all over the world, to gather them together for war on the great day of God the Almighty.


Saan  inihambing  ng Bibliya  ang kamatayan?
(Where does the bible compared death?)
Psalm 13:3 (Amplified Bible)
Consider and answer me, O Lord my God; lighten the eyes [of my faith to behold Your face in the pitchlike darkness], lest I sleep the sleep of death,

John 11:11-13 (Amplified Bible)
He said these things, and then added, Our friend Lazarus is at rest and sleeping; but I am going there that I may awaken him out of his sleep.
The disciples answered, Lord, if he is sleeping, he will recover.
However, Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that He referred to falling into a refreshing and natural sleep.

Anong  pag-asa  ang ibinibigay  ng  Dios sa  kabila  ng  kamatayang ito?
(What hope will God gives despite death?)


1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (Amplified Bible)
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud cry of summons, with the shout of an archangel, and with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first.
Then we, the living ones who remain [on the earth], shall simultaneously be caught up along with [the resurrected dead] in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so always (through the eternity of the eternities) we shall be with the Lord!

1 Corinthians 15:52-54
(Amplified Bible)
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [sound of the] last trumpet call. For a trumpet will sound, and the dead [in Christ] will be raised imperishable (free and immune from decay), and we shall be changed (transformed).
For this perishable [part of us] must put on the imperishable [nature], and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death).
And when this perishable puts on the imperishable and this that was capable of dying puts on freedom from death, then shall be fulfilled the Scripture that says, Death is swallowed up (utterly vanquished [a]forever) in and unto victory.


Ang  PROPESIYA  ay nagsasabi  na mayroong  pagkabuhay sa  likod  ng  kamatayan  at kaloob  na  Buhay  na Walang  Hanggan.
(The Prophecy says that there's life behind death and it's the gift of Eternal life.)

sabbath day is forgotten by the world
Daniel 7:25 (Contemporary English Version)
"This king will speak evil of God Most High, and he will be cruel to God's chosen ones. He will try to change God's Law and the sacred seasons. And he will be able to do this for a time, two times, and half a time."
Alin  sa  Sampung Utos  ang may  panahon?
(Which of the Ten Commandments tells time?)

TANGING  ANG  IKA-APAT  LAMANG
(ONLY THE FOURTH COMMAND)
Exodus 20:8 (Amplified Bible)
[Earnestly] remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy (withdrawn from common employment and dedicated to God).

Ating  alamin  mula  sa kasaysayan  kung  paano nagsimulang  ipangilin ng  karamihang  mga Kristiyano  ang  Linggo.
(Let us learn from how history began to keep Sunday by the most Christians .)

Saan  ba  nagsimula ang  salitang “Sunday”?
(Where the word "Sunday" started?)

  • Webster New encyclopedia International, Comprehensve Edition, "Sunday"
"Sunday, that is the day of the sun, Sundag: so called because this day was anciently dedicated to the sun or its worship. The first day of the week."
Government of Rome + Church = unity
  • Lectures on History of the Eastern Chucrh, by Dean Arthur F. Stanley, p.184.
"Ang pananatili ng dating paganong pangalan na "Dies Solis" o Linggo para sa lingguhang pistang Kristiyano ay malaking hakbang sa pag-iisa ng sentimyentong pagao at Kristiyano, na inirekomenda ni Constantine sa kanyang nasasakupang mga pagano, at Kristiyano, bilang "Kagalang-galang na araw ng Araw..." Ito ang kanyang naging paraan sa pag-iisa ng nagsasalu-salungat na mga relihiyon sa kanyang imperio sa isang institusyon..."
"The persistence of old pagan name" Dies Solis "or Sunday for the weekly Christian festival is a big step in the amalgamation of pagan and Christian sentiment, recommended by Constantine to his pagan jurisdiction, and Christians, as" Reverend Day of the Sun ... "It became his way into the seclusion of religious conflict in his Empire in an institution ..."
  • First Civil Sunday Law Passed: March 7, 321 A.D.
History of the Christian Church ed. 1902, v.3, p.380
"Sa marangal na 'Araw ng Araw' ang mga mahistrado at mga taong naninirahan sa mga siyudad ay pinagpahinga, at ang lahat ng mga pook pagawaan ay pinasasara.
"On the venerable Day of the Sun let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed"
7th day of the week= holy day
1st day of the week= holiday

Kung  ang  Iglesia Katolika  ang  tatanungin, ano  ang  masasabi  nila?
(If the Church of Catholic is asked, what they can say?)

  • The Convert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, p.50, by Peter Geiermann, London, 1934. Sanctioned by the Vatican, Jan. 25, 1910
Q: Which is the Sabbath day?
A: Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q: Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A: We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday.

Meron  ba  tayong mababasa  sa  Bibliya na  pinapahintulutang baguhin  ang  araw  ng Pangilin?
(Is there a passage from the Bible that allows the change of worship day?)

  • The faith of our Fathers, pp. 111, 112, Catholic Cardinal James Gibbons
"Mababasa mo ang Biblia mula Genesis hanggang Apocalipsis, at hindi mo makikita ang isang linya na nagpapahintulot sa pagiging sagrado ng Linggo. Pinag-uutos ng mga Kasulatan ang debotong pangilin ng Sabado."
"You may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday."
  • Ten Rules for Living, p. 61, Clovis G. Chappel
"Ang kadahilanan ng ating pangingilin ng unang uraw sa halip na ika-pito ay nakabatay sa hindi positibong kautusan. Sinoman ay makapagsasaliksik sa mga Kasulatan ngunit walang matatagpuang kapangyarihang naglilipat ng ika-pitong araw sa unang araw."
"The reason of our observance of the first day instead of seventh is not based on positive law. Anyone can search the Scriptures but found no power to move the seventh day to the first day. "
  • Catholic Record, Sept. 17, 1833
"Ang Linggo ay natatag di dahil sa kautusan kundi dahil sa tradisyon at institusyong Katolika."
"The Sunday is established not bec. of the law but because of tradition and institution of Catholic Church."
  • Canon and tradition p. 263
"Ang autoridad kung gayon ng Iglesya ay di maaring talian ng autoridad ng kasulatan sapagkat ang iglesya ay binago ang Sabbath tungo sa Linggo, hindi  sa utos ni Kristo kundi sa sariling autoridad nito."
“The authority of the church could therefore not be bound to the authority of the Scriptures, because the Church had changed...the Sabbath into Sunday, not by command of Christ, but by its own authority.
Walang Bibical base
(No Bibical base)
Bakit  nila  binago ang  araw  ng  Sabado patungo  sa  Linggo?
(Why they changed Sabbath days towards Sundays?)

  • Catholicism and Fundamentalism, Karl Keating 1988, p.38
"Ang iglesya katolica ang siyang nagpasya na ang Linggo ay dapat araw ng pagsamba para sa mga Kristiyano, sa paggalang sa pagkabuhay na mag-uli."
"The catholic church decided that Sunday should be the day of worship for Christians, to respect the resurrection day."

Sa  paglipas  ng  mga panahon  nakaligtaan  na ng  mga  tao  ang  araw  na inuutos  na  alalahanin. Ito  ay  napalitan  ng tradisyon.
(Over a period of time, the people forgot the day that the command tells to remember. It was changed by tradition.)
Matthew 15:3 (Amplified Bible)
He replied to them, And why also do you transgress and violate the commandment of God for the sake of the rules handed down to you by your forefathers (the elders)?

Matthew 15:9 (Contemporary English Version)
It is useless for you to worship me,
when you teach rules made up by humans."

What is your guide? Tradition or Bible?
Ano  naman  kaya  ang masasabi  ng  ibang Protestante  hinggil dito?
(What does other Protestant tell about it?)
  • Dr. Edward Hiscox, The Baptist Manual, Nov. 13, 1893
“Mayroon noon at ngayong utos na ipangiling banal ang araw ng Sabbath, ngunit ang  Sabbath na  iyon ay hindi ang Linggo.
Maaaring sabihin, tila mula sa palabas ng pananagumpay,na ang Sabbath ay nailipat mula sa ikapito tungo sa unang araw ng isang
linggo.
Saan matatagpuan ang tala ng ganitong transaksyon? Hindi sa Bagong Tipan— tunay na hindi.
Walang ebidensiya sa Kasulutan ng pagbabago ng institusyon ng Sabbath mula sa ikapito hanggang sa unang araw ng sanlinggo.”
—Mula sa papel na binasa sa New York, Minister’s Conference
("There was and is a commandment to keep holy the Sabbath day, but that Sabbath day was not Sunday. ... It will be said, however, and with some show of triumph, that the Sabbath was transferred from the seventh to the first day of the week. ... Where can the record of such a transaction be found? Not in the New Testament--absolutely not. There is no scriptural evidence of the change of the Sabbath institution from the seventh to the first day of the week.")
  • The  Pentecostal  Evangel, Aug. 9, 1959, No. 2361 p. 3
“ ‘Bakit  tayo  nagsasamba  ng  Linggo? Hindi baga  tinuturo  sa  atin  ng  Bibliya  na  Sabado  ang  Araw  ng  Panginoon?’ … Lumalabas  na  kailangan  nating  maghanap ng  kasagutan  sa  labas  ng  Bagong  Tipan.”
                - David A. Womack
"'Why do we worship on Sunday? Doesn't the Bible teach us that Saturday should be the Lord's Day?' ... Apparently we will have to seek the answer from some other source than the New Testament."
  • Christian   Advocate, July 2, 1942
“Walang  mga  indikasyon  sa  Bagong  Tipan kung  paanong  ang  iglesia  ay  nagsimulang mangilin  ng  unang  araw  ng  sanlinggo  bilang araw  ng  pagsamba  nito,  ngunit  walang  tala  na  nagsasabi  sa  mga  Kristiyano  na  ipangilin ang  araw  na  iyon, o  ilipat  ang  Sabbath  ng  mga  Judio  tungo  sa  araw  na  iyon.”
"Take the matter of Sunday. There are indications in the New Testament as to how the church came to keep the first day of the week as its day of worship, but there is no passage telling Christians to keep that day, or to transfer the Jewish Sabbath to that day." --Harris Franklin Rall,


Saint  Catherine  Catholic, Church  Sentinel, May 21, 1995
“Marahil  ang  pinakamapusok  na  bagay, ang  pinakamarebolusyong  pagbago  na  nangyari  ay  nagawa  ng  iglesia  noong  unang  siglo. Ang  banal  na  araw, ang  Sabbath, ay  inilipat  mula  sa  Sabado  tungo  sa  Linggo… hindi  sa  anumang mga  tagubiling  nasa  Kasulatan, kundi  sa  pagkadama  ng  iglesia  ng  sariling  kapangyarihan  nito… Ang  mga  taong  nag-iisip  na  ang  mga  Kasulatan  ang  siyang  tanging  makapangyarihan  ay  nararapat  na  maging  Seventh-day  Adventist,  at  ipangingiling  banal  ang  araw  ng  Sabado.
"Perhaps the boldest thing, the most revolutionary change the Church ever did, happened in the first century. The holy day, the Sabbath, was changed from Saturday to Sunday. "The Day of the Lord" (dies Dominica) was chosen, not from any directions noted in the Scriptures, but from the Church's sense of its own power. The day of resurrection, the day of Pentecost, fifty days later, came on the first day of the week. So this would be the new Sabbath. People who think that the Scriptures should be the sole authority, should logically become SEVENTH- DAY ADVENTISTS, and keep Saturday holy."
1 John 5:3 (Contemporary English Version)
We show our love for God by obeying his commandments, and they are not hard to follow.
Ang  PROPESIYA  ay nagbibigay  babala  na  huwag  tayong  sumunod  sa binagong  utos  o  tradisyon. Tayo  ay  sumunod  sa  utos ni  Jesus.
(The PROPHECY gives us warning to not follow the revised mandate or tradition. We should obey Jesus' laws.)

1-2After this I saw four angels. Each one was standing on one of the earth's four corners. The angels held back the four winds, so that no wind would blow on the earth or on the sea or on any tree. These angels had also been given the power to harm the earth and the sea. Then I saw another angel come up from where the sun rises in the east, and he was ready to put the mark of the living God on people.
