Epiphany

z55cr_d0ayg-andrew-neel

God has placed in my heart last 2016 that there will be “Greater Abundance” and it was so…

2017, is an Epiphany (a moment in which you suddenly see or understand something in a new or very clear way) of “Growing up Spiritually” starting from myself, to my family, and people I connect with…

This is a year of #ExponentialGrowth.

The next 7 years is a preparation time, and I will be 36 years old by that time. I don’t know what is ahead, all I know right now God wants me to be wise. A woman of wisdom who walks by faith… Who sings praise and adoration to the God of the bible.

God wants His children to be sensitive into hearing His voice and obedient to what He commands.

KR, trials happen everyday, when you face a situation and you’ll tell yourself “Why did God allow this thing to happen? I wasn’t prepared for this…” or “This is a test from God, of how much I can trust in Him…” get over it! You cannot question God on the 8th year “why?” He did not left you unprepared, you had His instructions. Look back on the last 7 years of your life. It shouldn’t be regret but a preparation time that you missed.As I look back on the last 7 years of my life which started in 2009-11 was hell. 2012 I made a decision to follow Jesus and it wasn’t easy to let go of things until I had the understanding of God’s grace. 2013 Papa’s health was the biggest situation my family faced, and I was surprised how God made us breakthrough from that financially and emotionally. My faith was as big as the mustard seed, and from that seed unconsciously God has placed in my spirit a big God who’s name is Jesus. 2014 my parents received Jesus to be their Lord and Savior, got born again. 2015 Evangelism is a lifestyle. I learned to pray. 2016 was supernaturally miraculous. I will never forget the people who partnered with me in my mission to Nepal, I raised $1800+ and made also paid my tuition fee balance at the Bible Training School from that fund raising. I graduated NLTC. 2017 is my 1st year in the ministry.

Dear Mission & Prayer Partners,

Good Evening and Good Morning! I’m not yet done in giving thanks to all of you. Before I start, I just want to acknowledge God in this letter if not because of Him, the mission fund will not be raised or even the t-shirt campaign will never be launched, the idea or the wisdom came from Him in the first place. Glory to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

This year is indeed a Supernaturally Miraculous 2016 for me, the 1st quarter of the year is… Like what have been prophesied by my pastor… Something miraculous in the spiritual realm happened I believe during our weekly prayer services every Thursday 7pm in New Life Calamba when the year 2016 started. I knew because the move of the Holy Spirit is tangible. Pastor have been speaking wisdom to flow and I receive every prayer.

I have no intention joining the NLTC mission exposure to Nepal, my family is not capable to support me and even I don’t have the savings either. But 3 years ago, I told God if I will be going on a mission trip that will be Nepal. What I did, I begun to thank God and declare that He will provide– but at the back of my head I don’t see that it will gonna’ happen. In my prayer I declare positively because that’s what I want to happen. We happen to be unbelieving believers when impossible situations faces us. When someone pledged for my mission I cried and prayed to God, after I received the money that was pledged that was ₱5,000. I cried again upon receiving the money because I am still doubting. The money that I need for the mission is ₱ 65,000… ₱ 5,000 peso become smaller when I see the number. It came to me to return it back… But God told me that these are just numbers and I am going to lessen that number…

God spoke to me in the spirit, use the influence and the skill you have. I asked God, how? I am not influential and never had a good track record. I struggle in design and I’m not really good at it. God reminded me, the Holy Spirit is here to help me… Design a t-shirt and do a fund raising, use the social media.

The t-shirt project is supposed to be only for myself and not for the batch. But God revealed me that this wisdom I gave you is meant to be shared to your batch, they needed to be blessed also. All of you are going and none from your batch will be left behind to your international mission to Nepal. I proposed with the batch and they agreed. Then God told me, you will need to get it advertised to the church.

It was also prophesied by pastor that this year, you will also make a mistake… We have launched early the t-shirt campaign without the approval of our senior pastors. So the campaign was put on hold for a week from the day it was launched. We have crossed the line from launching without the approval of our leaders. I haven’t proposed to them yet which was a mistake really on my part. We get too excited. The design was rejected also, so if some of you were asking why it was re-designed, that was the reason.

We didn’t get a “yes” from the same day the project was proposed. It’s not easy to stand and propose a project in the office of our senior pastors. First question asked, “why now?” that should have been proposed earlier and fund raising is not practiced in New Life Sta.Rosa. I explained the terms and conditions and our senior pastors didn’t say No or Yes after that meeting. I understand that they were just being careful because money is involved. It was Tuesday, and that afternoon was intercessory meeting at 5pm. Before intercessory I prayed and asked God to give me a word… God did not disappointed me, He gave me Acts 4:33.

I asked God, if that wisdom came from Him. He will confirm it to our pastors, they will approve the proposal. I was put in the situation to entertain doubt I was crying while I was driving the motor bike thinking that maybe it was just me and not God… But I resisted and I stayed positive and my batch mates as well. I was scheduled to exhort the next afternoon and we were led to worship. Thank God there are praise and worship team in our batch, they are truly a blessing. If you ask them to sing or play instrument they will.

God confirmed and the proposal and was approved. Hallelujah! Now next, what will be the design of the t-shirt then? I prayed in tongues before re-doing it. I even asked Pastor Tom’s approval to use the “Supernaturally Miraculous” statement that Thursday night. He said yes and the next day I proposed the design to Pastor Elma and it was approved!

I got from Pastor Ferdie Valladores that if you connect your declaration to your senior pastor that anointing will flow. And it did, indeed the sales was Supernaturally Miraculous! That’s the reason why the t-shirt is Supernaturally Miraculous and at the same time it is our declaration.

The first miracle of NLTC batch 8 this 2016 is, that our t-shirt proposal was approved. Next was, all of us went to Nepal. The amount of fund that was raised from t-shirt sales is ₱55,800 that goes to the student beneficiaries, including me. What goes to NLTC is only ₱3,780.

I raised ₱26,360 from the Mission Partner t-shirts and most of my sales are outside the church. I received cash donations of ₱59,690. That’s an overall total of ₱86,050 ($1,870). This is beyond what I can imagine…

I was able to join the mission obviously and aside from that, you have also helped me pay my NLTC tuition in full. I am grateful to God with all of these blessings.

Not all of you who supported the campaign are my close friends we know that, some of you are friends of friends which was really surprising that you initiated to help. And most of you also, we haven’t talk or seen each other for years and yet you helped. I was really blessed by your heart to give– not by how much you gave or many t-shirts you bought but by the love you’ve shown. You could’ve doubted but yet you chose to trust and help. I believe that His great grace came upon you, that’s why you gave… That giving can be sacrificial for some of you, I tell you God will bless you more. Expect and receive your blessing in Jesus name.

I just want to acknowledge and thank Bro. Mateo Calaguan and Sis. Lutgarda Mendoza Calaguan who believed and prayed with me before everything else started.

To my senior pastors Dr. Tom Molina and Dr. Elma Molina thank you for allowing us…

My Parents Rey-Edith Gonzaga Alipala, My Lola Aurora Buisan and Tita Ruth Gonzaga Alipala, thank you for your support which was surprising despite the financial situation our family is dealing I love you.

To our teachers in NLTC, New Life Sta.Rosa Staff thank you for believing with NLTC batch 8 everyday in morning prayer.

To the Intercessory team who also was very supportive: Tita Tess P. Teoxon, Ate Sharon Carneo-Ramos, Tita Brenda Geluz, Tita Meliza Calalang and others…

My classmates in high school, college, nursing review thank you so much.

Our family friends in Muntinlupa Ate Mhiles Manahan, My relatives abroad and in the Philippines, my mountaineer friends, and all organizations I used to be part with, virtual friends, New Life Calamba, and Victoria’s thank you!

 I want to thank also Nikki Pava for being too considerate throughout the school year, when there’s so many reasons to fire me but she didn’t.

 I also want to thank Gangnam Davao Cafe & Restaurant for our 5 star hotel accommodation in Singapore. Thanks also to Bro. Gabriel Eng & Pastor Bernard for taking care of us while we were in KL. Thanks also to Dr. Fritz Cobrado and Dr. Rishi Rimal for taking us to Nepal.

I want thank also Ate GT Bocar for taking care of our flight bookings while we were in Nepal. The #LoveNepal team thank you for supporting Conquerors – NLTC Batch 8.

 Thanks also to the people who worked together with us in our first local mission in San Pedro New Life, the outreach volunteers and those that joined us in our 2nd local mission in Davao.

 Those that helped us in the graduation play, the production crew and media team thank you so much. Thanks also to the praise and worship ministry.

 If your name wasn’t mentioned wag’ kang mag-tampo please. I will get in touch with all of you, my mission partners and I hope you will respond.

 I am trying to shorten this letter…

 Lastly, I want to tell you that I am greatly blessed by the love you’ve shown. God is magnified by your actions. Thank you so much Mission Partners! I love you.

Thank you,

Papa’s Dream: Can Dreams Show A Glimpse of Heaven?

This happened midnight of November 3, 2014 between 12:00AM and 1:00AM.

Last night, I told about Mama testimonies of people going to Heaven. I also told her the summary of “Heaven is for Real” the movie, boy Colton who met Jesus in heaven and Akiane’s story that at the age of 8 she painted the picture of Jesus that is confirmed by Colton.

Oliver Tham

I told Mama I met Connie SweeConnie Swee and Oliver Tham at the sunday service earlier, they were awesome. Then I showed her Connie Swee’s interview with Dr Rodney Howard Browne in youtube back in 2011, where she testifies going to heaven. Mama asked, because she was wondering what does heaven looked like? Well they said it’s like what it is on earth, the place is so beautiful and it is so peaceful because of the presence of God.

As Mama and I talked, we are interrupted by Papa calling Mama to get inside the bedroom, he was shouting and was  having a leg cramps. So after it, Mama went back to me to hear these stories and Papa followed her. Papa does not have any idea what Mama and I were talking before he walked in… Then I stopped talking because Papa was interrupting again… But it caught my attention when he said he had a very nice a dream, that he went to a very beautiful island.

I asked him to go back to his room and tell me more about it. Here’s what he tells  me:

“In my dream I was in a beautiful island, it was so peaceful and all people are nice. I like them, they are honest.”

I asked how did he know that the people there are honest? He said:

“Because when I asked them if they have seen my money, they told me that they did not stole anything from me and the money that I’m looking for is on my left sleeve. So when I checked my sleeve it is there.”

So I asked what else did he saw…

“There was a boat that pick passengers, so I ride the boat because I wanted to go there. But the boat was shaky as we cross the water. We stop over to islands that we pass through to pick up some more passengers. The boat driver was a lady and she’s shouting to passengers to get on and I told her she was so good that she can drive a boat. The boat was so shaky… So we reached the beautiful island there’s so many people, it is so beautiful and I really love it there, they are nice and the atmosphere is peaceful and there’s no plastic people.”

I asked how was the weather, if it’s cold? he said:

“It’s not cold and not warm either… Just right. I saw a big tower it was really bright that looks like INC’s church and it looks blue, but no one comes there. People are just walking around it. I saw people playing softball…”

I asked again, if there was billiards or gambling on that place? He said…

“People there don’t gamble. There’s only one game, softball… They even asked me to play but I said no because they might lose from me coz’ I’m so good. Then I told them I’m going back home to my wife and daughter but I promised them that I will come back, I wanted to go back there because the place is so beautiful and then I ride the boat. I remember I ride the boat twice to go back home, but when I wanted to go back to the island I can’t. Then my leg cramps, I woke up. I didn’t know I slept for too long…”

I asked, “Does people there have a face? Are they tall? Was the dream blurry or clear?” Papa said:

“They have a face like you were in a crowd, they look like us . They are not tall, just like us and it was clear. I am curious about the bright tower that’s in the middle.”

I said: “Didn’t you went to heaven?” he replied: “I don’t know, but the place was so beautiful (gustong-gusto ko don’).”

I told Papa that for me his dream was a representation of his walk with Jesus. “The Boat” was Jesus, “it was shaky when they cross the water” I think it illustrates his faith, “the lady boat driver” I just realized that maybe it was Me and Mama, “other passengers” are the believers of Jesus Christ, “the light tower” must be the throne of God, “left sleeve full of money” was Papa’s left brachial fistula… I asked him if his fistula was there, he said “I don’t have a fistula, I didn’t see it but my money was in my left sleeve”. Well, most of our money go to that left arm, Papa is having dialysis twice a week. Maybe if that’s heaven? We can cash out money from his arm like ATM he he, also isn’t it rare to have a pocket on a sleeve? Papa seem to be smiling while he was telling us his dream. You know what’s good? My realization from his dream that even Papa went to a beautiful place like that he chose not to stay there and come back to us even if it’s a very nice place to live in and so much beauty.

Heaven or Not? I don’t know, but it’s pretty obvious that’s not hell.

Revelation 22:3-7 (NIV)
3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. 6 The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.”
Jesus Is Coming
7 “Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.”

It could be a glimpse to heaven or plainly a dream… But I’m happy to be told about this, I was dealing the past week if Papa will be going with us to Heaven he is grumpy all the time, or what if they go to heaven and I will be left here? (so much lies satan) Well, this dream is a confirmation that Jesus is taking Papa to his boat, he will be saved. Papa got angry with me when I told him he has unbelief that’s why the boat was shaky, he insisted that he believes and put his faith on Jesus. Mama and I were happy to hear that and then we laughed. I am confident Papa is saved.

Bro. Oliver Tham on yesterday’s sunday service preached about salvation. The simple steps to salvation are :

  1.  John 3:16 (NIV)
    16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life
  2.  Luke 4:41 (NKJV)
    41 And demons also came out of many, crying out and saying, “You are the Christ,[a] the Son of God!” And He, rebuking them, did not allow them to speak, for they knew that He was the Christ.
  3. Romans 10:9-10 (NKJV)
    9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

In Genesis, God created everything by his mouth… If you Confess in your mouth that Jesus is Lord and you Believe, you will be saved. That’s the key to salvation, it  is our contract to God and the shedding of blood at the cross was His offer for our salvation.

Gift of Faith: Gateway to Many Wonders

After the worship service this evening I went home driving the motorbike with Ate Pinky. The rain was pouring hard.

My heart was filled with praise and worship and I started to worship God in the spirit and I began to sing in the known language. I knew I started to sing prophetic worship. The lyrics come out of my mouth are words that I didn’t think and just flows out of my spirit and I just yielded with the flow. All throughout the drive I was praising and worshipping God. Now God revealed to me in the prophetic worship: “The Gift of Faith is the gateway to many wonders…” I was surprised to what I heard, how could I even think about that? It wasn’t me at all it’s God who reveals.

This evening Pastor Tom called for an altar call for the church who wanted to be used by God to move in healing and miracles and this evening it will be activated. I stood up, but I wasn’t praying for the gift of healing and miracles. I’m believing God for the Gift of Faith. Before I come in front of the altar I do not wait for the pastor to lay hands on me. I began receiving what I’m believing for and the presence of God started to fill me and His anointing is moving on the inside of me.

God spoke to me while I was kneeling on the floor laughing and crying, shouting. I heard God in my spirit: “KR I like what you did, you have that great faith in the inside of you, you were asking me for the Gift of Faith you were not sure if you can have it. But what you did, I like that you prayed for other people to receive the Gift of Faith that you yourself is asking, you didn’t have the gift yet but you began to impart and that is great faith. I will now activate the Gift of Faith that is in you. Your pastor will not lay his hands on you don’t wait for him. I Am He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.” I saw Jesus in my spirit He placed His hand over my head He said: “I will place my hand over your head and I’m not going to take it off I will anoint you” and I felt my body started to burn I heard God said “Receive the fire” I began to fold while kneeling down and fire all over me. I began to shout and cannot hold the flow of God within me. I stood up and sit on a chair and something is going on my body there was a vibration all over me.

I believe something has changed and I have to grow what I received this evening. Thank you, Lord! Grateful that God is using my pastor to demonstrate His power.

I got home and I immediately imparted to mama and papa the anointing I received this evening and prayed healing for papa. I’m so happy God demonstrated not just His power but His love.
