All For Jesus or All for Nothing
2-2. THE TERM AND/OR EXTENT FOR THE REAL ENTIRE SELF- COMMITMENT OF EVERY PERSONAL LIFE IS ALL FOR JESUS OR ALL FOR NOTHING BUT ENDLESS TORMENT IN HELL AND THE LAKE OF FIRE.
If you are ALL FOR JESUS, then you must be a consistent adherent of ALL THE TRUTH of ( from, on, in, through, with, to and for ) Jesus. But if you are not ALL FOR JESUS, then you belong to the satanic family, tribe and armies of ALL LIARS. There is no neutral ground between the consistent adherents of ALL THE TRUTH of Jesus and those who belong to the satanic family, tribe and armies of ALL LIARS. They are absolutely, totally and non- negotiably mutually exclusive. Since the entire Bible is the TESTIMONY of ( from, on, in, through, with, to and for ) Jesus, therefore, if you do injustice to the entire Bible then you are totally disoriented regarding Jesus, and, if you are disoriented regarding the Bible, then, you are doing injustice and playing false to Jesus. However, you can only be true, do justice and be pleasing to Jesus by submitting, committing, subjecting, conforming, devoting and subserving your all directly, exclusively and permanently to Him. Otherwise, you belong to the vast armies of ALL LIARS who are going to the everlasting torment of hell and of the lake of fire. The RULE OF JESUS orders that no one serves two Masters at the same time ( Matthew 6:24 ). Jesus is the SINGULAR, PERSONAL and DIRECTLY SELF- REVEALING ABSOLUTE way ( John 14:6 ) of those who are following His order ( Colossians 2:6-10 ). Jesus is the Righteous Way and He is the Way of the righteous. All of those who take and/or traverse and/or pursue any other way are not in TOTAL, ABSOLUTE, EXCLUSIVE, DIRECT and PERMANENT conformity with Jesus but they are in the way of the wicked/lawless/unjust. So the commitment of every personal life is either ALL FOR JESUS or ALL FOR NOTHING but hell and the lake of fire. Either you are from, on, in, through, with, to and for ALL THE TRUTH of Jesus or you are from, on, in, through, with, to and for ALL LIARS.
2-2A. The way of those who are NOT ALL FOR JESUS may seem or appear right to them but their end is everlasting damnation. They may for some times cling to the favors, pleasures and diversions- deceptions of this sin- corrupted world but eventually all this will change, pass away and perish. So the best, most logical and infinitely profitable choice is just be, do and have ALL FOR JESUS. Consequently on the first week of December 1955, I have once and for all resolved, in accordance with the Biblical will of God the Father and in conformity with the Biblical ALL FOR JESUS witness of God the Holy Spirit, to give my all to Jesus and to take Jesus HIMSELF ALONE not only as my SALVATION, ETERNAL LIFE and EVERLASTING GLORY but also as my ALL in all. Then between 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. of February 28, 1956 and at our house in 31- A Rizal Avenue, Taytay, Rizal, Philippines, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself, for the first time, appeared to me; He called me “My son” and baptized me in the Holy Spirit. I did not immediately, fully appreciate the Biblical teaching that to be a true son or child of Jesus, one must believe INTO His Name, accept Him in All His fullness ( John 1:12-13; Matthew 9:1-10 ) and overcome the world [ Revelation 21:1-7 ] by the faith of Jesus ( I John 5:4-5; Revelation 14:12 ). However, the impact of the baptism in the Holy Spirit on me was immediate, very crucial and significant. Undoubtedly, my baptism in the Holy Spirit is like that which the apostles experienced in Acts 2:4. For during that first personal appearance of Jesus to me, as I looked on Him, His glory engulfed me and the fire of His absolutely holy love, like waves after waves after waves of cleansing, sanctifying and enlivening glorious power penetrated, filled and flooded my entire being and I was so humbled by His majestic appearance, the look and reality of eternity in His eyes and His very powerful but sweet loving voice that all I can say repeatedly to Jesus was “I am not worthy Lord ! I am not worthy Lord ! I am not worthy Lord !” until I began to speak in other tongues as the Holy Spirit gave me utterance. This direct personal self- revelation of Jesus to me made Him preciously, unforgettably and awesomely real in my whole life. My entire being was LIGHTED, LIGHTENED and ENVIGORATED by Jesus. Subsequently, I realized that Jesus healed me of migraine, recurring sore throat and swelling of my tonsils. Moreover, this first Personal manifestation of Jesus to me has sharply defined the direction, the shape or configuration and the tasks of my lifework. It is also at this point that in spite of all my individual imperfections, limitations and frailties, I voluntarily decided to lovingly, expectantly and faithfully give my all to Jesus not just to know, to have and to appropriate Him as my SALVATION, ETERNAL LIFE, EVERLASTING GLORY and ALL IN ALL but also so that with all that I am, with all that I have and with all that I do, I can please, glorify and magnify Him; and from then on, all within the entire sphere of my capabilities, opportunities and responsibilities are submitted, committed, subjected, conformed, devoted and subservient directly, exclusively and permanently to this Christ Jesus, the SINGULAR, PERSONAL and DIRECTLY SELF- REVEALING LORD ( YAHWEH, Adon, Kyrios ) God ( Elohim ) the Son who being the LORD ( YAHWEH, Adon, Kyrios ) God ( El ) Almighty ( Shaddai ) HIMSELF is always or ever functioning as ALL IN ALL even in His incarnation and Perfect Manhood.
2-2B. Thus the entire purpose, conscious self- determination and works of my whole life is just to address ( by submitting, committing, subjecting, conforming and devoting ) all directly, exclusively and permanently to Jesus Himself not only because anything less than this is doing injustice and playing false to His being the SINGULAR, PERSONAL and DIRECTLY SELF- REVEALING LORD ( YAHWEH, Adon, Kyrios ) God ( Elohim ) the Son who being the LORD ( YAHWEH, Adon, Kyrios ) God ( El ) Almighty ( Shaddai ) is always functioning as ALL in all even in His incarnation and Perfect Manhood, but also because to address all of each one and all of everyone and all of all to Jesus is Biblically willed by God the Father and Christologically confirmed by the witness of God the Holy Spirit. For the true Biblical Godliness and/or Christianity is nothing but the submission, commitment, subjection, conformity and devotion of all directly, exclusively and permanently from, on, in, through, with, to and for Jesus. This means that all of all is addressed to Him, dwelling in Him, aimed at and focused on Him as well as entirely subservient to Him. Jesus is the all- drawing personal focal point ( Romans 11:36; Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 12:2 ), the all- accommodating dwelling place ( Acts 17:28 ) and the all- welcoming or the all- accepting addressee- destination of all that is truly of God ( Colossians 1:19; John 6:37-46; Matthew 11:27-29; Revelation 1:8, 17-18 ). So all of those who have not directly, exclusively and permanently addressed their all to Jesus are sinning against Him because they are swerving/deviating/departing from Him. Those who are not going straight to Jesus are definitely going away from Him. Those who are truly going straight to Jesus are thereby proceeding through the only absolutely right life- course since the entire course of their life is traversing only that which is derived from, based on, staying in, coursed or channeled through, going along with, aimed at, proceeding into and functioning exclusively for Jesus.
2-2C. One of the happiest, most exhilarating and very edifying moments in the writer’s life is when he realized that the only absolutely right life course for himself and for everyone in all of reality is unidirectionally from, on, in, through, with, to and for Jesus. I am totally absorbed with the wonderfully blessed revelation, appropriation and realization of the following Biblical assurances: that all to me came FROM Jesus; that all to me is based ON Jesus; that all to me is located IN Jesus; that all to me is channeled THROUGH Jesus; that all to me is going along WITH Jesus; that all to me is addressed TO Jesus and that all to me is just FOR the sake of Jesus. Whatever is not Biblically entirely from, on, in, through, with, to and for Christ Jesus is not Godliness neither Christianity but anti- Jesus satanism ( a system adverse to and opposing Jesus ) that deserves hell and the lake of fire. For, according to the Biblical will of God the Father and as Christologically confirmed by God the Holy Spirit, the only absolutely right life course is UNIDIRECTIONALLY from, on, in, through, with, to and for Jesus.
