Passion Manila 2010

For the second time I have been part of the crazy Passion Manila.

Passion Manila 2010
Araneta Coliseum [sold out]
May 25, 2010, Tuesday
Featuring Louie Giglio, Chris Tomlin, Kristian Stanfill, and the all-time star, JESUS.

People-ing before the conference-concert
Was with 29 other young people from my church. Left at 10:30am. Arrived at 3. Great time of sharing, fellowship, and some sleep with my cell on the road (I would like to tell more about this part on my future blogs).
On the way
Sisters’ date at Coffee Bean. Hung out at Cafe Bola ‘cause the heat on the streets surrounding the coliseum was unbearable (at least for me). Met with our childhood friends, Zion and Kim (plus a new friend, Karl). [photo]
Coffee Bean

Also, I finally met my dear Shing [photo] whom I got to know though Passion ’08 :-D
Entered the coliseum at around 6 PM. This time I got to spend time with the other students I was with.. UNTIL I left to buy a Passion Shirt.

From Upperbox to Patron
I was also with my girls (cell) when Vanj and I bought our Passion shirts. 
My girls and I and the Passion tarp

We were supposed to get foods and drinks when I “accidentally” entered into an upperbox B entrance/ door (not really on the fiddle--- was just checking out). We continued walking and checking out the place when I incidentally entered into a lowerbox entrance. The ushers were kind enough to have just let us pass.
Jumps. Shouts. High five’s.
From Upperbox B seats, we got ones beside the stage! Whoohoo! My cell kept on joking that really they should always follow their leader :-P
with KPStanfill at the back

Hang on in there.. something more interesting happened....
When the lights turned off while the opening video was being played on the large screens of the coliseum, someone gave us passes to the patron area (beside the stage)! Whoohoo!
So yes, my friends, patron! Later on we found ourselves in the front! As in front.
My cell and I are grateful for such a great favor and surprise from God!

Say, Say, Say. Sing, sing, sing.
Of course it was AWESOME to dance, sing, and shout in worship with 10000+ crazy Filipino young people! Pinoy’s are really loud and expressive when it comes to worshipping God through songs (my thought: may we also bring this boldness in winning souls and making disciples!).
Chris Tomlin and the Filipinos
Chris Tomlin again sang the Tagalog version of his well-know song “How Great is Our God”. On a slushy side, check what I’ve got after the event: Chris Tomlin’s own! :-D Yay!

All for His Fame
P1010193I have heard about that message from John 12 (death of a seed = fruit) for so many times, but it’s just amazing that because God’s Word is truly living and is dynamic, I have just died. again. I have reaffirmed my death on myself and that I am now living for Him alone, for His renown.

Maybe some of you, if you’ve been reading my blogs and know me, would say “but you are already doing that!”.. Well, I could say yes, but as I see it there can only always be a deeper, next, higher, greater level for the things we do for God, and well, this event made me praise God as I have seen my heart’s desire in the past (up to the present) to really take part and take the lead in leading this generation to knowing Jesus.

I don’t care if I’d be the biggest or smallest person in this world; I just want my life to be used in making God famous in this generation!

All-time. Epic. Jesus!

PS. on a totally random and silly thought: Chris Tomlin is seriously cute! :-D
It's shivering that he kept gazing at me when I was in front. Sinabi din ni Presh sa akin ito. Hindi ko nga lang sure if it’s because (on the credit side) I totally look good or because I was totally boisterous. But I’d like to think it’s because I am both :) HAHAHA. Okay, I have to stop typing now while my dignity’s still intact :-P Kinilig lang:-P Please let’s now all pretend I didn’t just publish this last part.haha. Yaiks! :-D
Will post more photos on my Facebook and/or Flickr

Anyway, on a more serious thought, grabe talaga. The message was simple yet moving.

"Shing. I'm again awakened and this is it. ^___^ Enough na. I died again and will live for Him. "
--I'm so glad to hear that from you. I will pray for you and the whole of YU2G (after I typed that I just did). Aabangan ko ang mga mangyayari pa sayo in the days ahead! :)

And about Chris, oo nga e, ang hirap ng long-distance relationship. HAHAHA. OMG. This is crazy! haha.

Coreen said...

Hi Jez, super long time! This is great! Oh and good job sa seats, haha. I think you guys deserve it kaya God made it happen. ;) I was actually supposed to go to this pero hindi natuloy. Sayang.

Oh well, IMY! God bless. :)

JP said...

HI Jez! I don't know where to email or message you kasi!! haha anyway, I just want to invite you on our latest End Time Conference, I really think God can use you guys to share about the end times sa iba pang tao, And I really think that Christians should grab each opportunity to know more about it and to share it. Alam ko malayo pa kayo, but lahat naman ng bagay may way, and I promise it's going to be worth it, maraming makikinabang di lang din kayo, So if you guys are interested you're welcome, To know more about it check out Register as soon as you can if you want to attend malapit na din kasi mapuno ung slots and limited lang ung seats. :) God Bless you!

Lique said...

The gods instructed Pharroh to give the Jews all that gold as temptation, and it worked.
So unlike Pharroh, but an effective corruptor which was responsible for the 40 years of warmongering under Joshua. This caused another host of problems to befall the Jewsish people as well.
What a bunch of dumb-ass kikes. The gods used them as "minor partners" with the Italians in the destruction of Planet Earth.

Even as peasant farmers we could be lulled::Good weather, bountiful harvests, etc. This is what old-world preachers were good for.
This stereotypical preacher had classic preaching styles:::Loud, damnation-fueled teachings. Contrast to today, preachers who are lulling the Damned into cruise control. The old-world style was important to snap people out of complacency. Unfortunately, in today's enviornment people consider this style insulting, and they lose a precious message designed for the favored of yesterday.

The Republicans got tired of being fingered for the corrupt trash they are and this time around timed the crisis so it would fall into the Democratic Administration's lap with the bailout scandal. Republican donors/friends enjoyed enrichment at the expense of the taxpayer, as we saw with the S&L Scandal in the 80s, but this time they dodged the scorn associated and tried to unload it on the opposing party.
The entire real estate scandal was different, but fools who do what they are told greased the wheels of this crisis. Now they have the information they need, been foreclosed on and evicted, and are left holding an empty bag labeled "immortality".
The gods played both sides of this event as they typically do, and those to whom they sold the real estate scam to in the 90s profiteered in the 2000s when the sub-prime machine flew into full gear during the peak of the market in 2005-2007. But we are all judged for our behavior, real or clone host, and despite perception of priveledge those who participated will suffer poetic justice, unless they have slipped into Damnation and are no longer eligible for punishment.
The gods position their theater like this for a reason::::This alienates the masses who flock to the party of evil liberalism while using the Republicans to prepare for god's will with governmental insolvency and the destruction of the true "evil empire".

The United States is a dumping ground for the disfavored. THis was how it was used during European immigration, this is how it is used today.
The Japanese Earthquake/Tsunami of 3/11/11 was actuslly a good sign for the people. Alarming because it came decades after their most recent admitted atrocities during WWII, at least they will experience corrective punishment, whereas the United States won't be as lucky.
Russia too enjoyed corrective punishment for the 1980 invasion of Afghanistan.
THere is something about this country. Interferring/injuring the Afghan people incurrs he god's wrath. It cost the SOviets their protection of communism. Now the gods have leveled the playing field among the last few white peoples who still enjoyed it on their way to a homogeneous global enviornment. If I am right about the United States we won't be as lucky. When we go down it will be for good, and there will be no recovery.
Yes, the clone host fake politicians have been planning for this for decades. Ronald Reagan turned a $1 trillion Federal debt into $6 trillion at the end of his Administration. Much like W in Iraq, this served to terminate the favor of a group of people. Reagan just didn't have to do it with violence as W did, but he did do it against white people, which says something.
I believe in killing, non-reincarnation:::The only way Planet Earth will achieve sustainability is if we "take out the trash" and the gods allow the most disfavored among us to be eliminated. The bouy is sinking, social decay is becoming ruinous and unless it begins to rise to the surface the gods will get their way and life will end on Planet Earth.
