December

I was in Church last Saturday and during the opening mass, the priest mentioned that it was the first Sunday of Advent and that's when you realised, that time has come again...where you kinda need to re-evaluate all the things that you've done in the past one year, the things that you should've done, the things that you wanted to do...etc. I was thinking to myself, dang...it means I gotta add more oil so that I am able to submit my major study proposal before Christmas. To be honest, I haven't been putting my focus on my studies since the new semester starts in September. It's like I put like 80% effort on my work and classes here and only 20% or less for my own studies. The past few months has been...very challenging to me, like it truly challenges me mentally and emotionally in different aspects in my life...sounds so serious lol but yeah, it truly is. Which is why, blogging was put aside in the past few months too. Well, to be honest there wasn't much happening to me anyway unless you wanna read about all the new Korean hip hop songs that I like recently or how much I actually like Justin Bieber and One Direction's new album haha. *Totally recommending their albums!

What a whirlwind of roller-coaster ride I've been into but, I am just thankful enough to survive up until now. I am again, putting way too much emotions on little things, over-thinking like there's no tomorrow and the worst part now is how I over caring I can be over things. I don't know how to stop...to be honest, it felt like these things have embedded in my body and will never leave like, ever. I just...really don't know. But that aside, I am still doing fine...or at least I like to think that way haha. I just can be a little confused with my emotions sometimes. Anyway, December is gonna be another helluva crazy month. Starting from all the gradings that I have to do once the semester ends, then on to preparing my written proposal and a presentation slide for my major study, working as a counselor for the education fair (cos I work hard for the money LOL) and continue to read/research on Discourse & Reflection subject. Oh....and STAR WARS too! Well, not that I am like a Star Wars geek but I did watched all the Star Wars episodes so this new Star Wars movie is a must-watch for me :) It's out on my birthday by the way haha. 

I also have decided not to spend Christmas in Penampang this year due to work and study. Initially I planned not to go back for the holidays and only will be back next year during Chinese New Year but, my mum called me last night and told me that she was willing to sponsor my flight home even though I did not asked her too :) Mum's the best haha. So, I will only be back few days after Christmas and will celebrate New Year's back home. Just hoping that everything will go well in the month of December. God bless!

THE PRIESTHOOD BY STEVE FINNELL

Are all Christians priests? Is it possible for all believers in Christ to approach God the father with only Jesus Christ as a mediator? Yes. Jesus is our high priest. There is the priesthood of all believers. There is Jesus the high priest. There is no mention of the office of priest in the New Testament church, that is a man-made tradition. There is no office of "priest" that is the authority in the local church or the mediator between man and God.

PRIESTHOOD OF ALL BELIEVERS

1 Peter 2:5-9 you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ..........9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;

All Christians are part of the priesthood.

Revelation 1:5-6 and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood---6 and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father--- to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

All who have been washed by the blood of Jesus have been made priests to God the Father by Jesus. THERE IS NOT AN OFFICE OF PRIEST; all Christians are priests.

THE HIGH PRIEST

Hebrews 4:14-15 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weakness, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.

Jesus is our one and only high priest. He is the only priest we need.

JESUS IS OUR MEDIATOR

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator also between God and men, the man Jesus Christ.

Jesus is the only mediator between God and men. The Virgin Mary is not a mediator. There are not man-made priests that are mediators between God and men.

ALL CHRISTIANS ARE PRIESTS!
