Message To You

Now that this page got your attention.. please take your time to read the following message. It won't take that long. Thanks!


Message To You:

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
God’s Word says that we are ALL sinners

THE GOOD NEWS
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

THE TWO SIDES OF THE QUESTION
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

HERE’S HOW TO BE SAVED AND SURE OF HEAVEN
Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto Salvation.

Right now, right where you are, settle this most important matter, you can quietly pray…
I realize that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross to take the punishment I deserve, please forgive me. I believe that He rose from the dead. I now ask you, Lord Jesus Christ, to save me from my sins and to be the Lord in my life. Thank you for your gift of eternal life, in Jesus Name, Amen.

If you meant it God will do His part and save you NOW!

Philippine National Basketball Team Records in Official Basketball Tournaments

Few years back, I made two entries about the Azkals and the Volcanoes’ win-loss records in official tournaments and this entry is the Philippine National Basketball Team records in official tournaments.

The records are the team's results in official tournaments. It only includes major tournaments and official tournaments such as the FIBA World Championships, the Olympic Games, FIBA Asia Championships, Asian Games, the SEA Games, SEABA and the William Jones Cup. The Far Eastern Games would have been included but I cannot find any game results during that era (only the medal result and nothing else).
