The Story of Psalm 23

We do not know when David wrote Psalm 23. Perhaps it was when his son Absalom tried to become king. David ran away. He went down to the River Jordan. He crossed it by the ford that we call Jabbok. He went on into a land that we call Gilead. There he met Barzillai. Barzillai was a shepherd. He kept sheep. Sheep are animals about 1 metre high. They give wool for making clothes, milk and meat for food. Barzillai gave David food and shelter. Shelter means a place to hide from the weather. All this made David think. God was like a shepherd. God was like a guide. God was a good friend. David put these ideas into Psalm 23. Many people know this psalm better than they know than any other psalm. It has given help to millions of people. This is because Jesus said that he was the shepherd in the psalm. If we believe in Jesus, we become one of his sheep. We can say, "The LORD is MY shepherd."

What Psalm 23 means

Verses 1–2: God is like a shepherd. In Israel, sheep followed their shepherd. The man that wrote Psalm 23 said:

he makes me to lie down in green fields: these were fields where the grass was new. Grass is a plant that grows in fields. Cows and sheep eat grass. Green fields means that the sheep would find plenty to eat. And they would sleep easily.
he leads me to waters where I can rest: this was the best water. It was probably a well, not a river.
The shepherd leads the sheep to all that they need: food, rest and water. Jesus leads his people to all that they need. Remember - what we NEED is not always what we WANT.

Verses 3–4: God is like a guide. We do not know who led David to Barzillai. There was a guide. Just as the old shepherd Barzillai made David think about God, so the guide made David think about God. Some Christians think verses 3 and 4 are also about the shepherd and his sheep. Others think that it is about a guide. That guide led David through the wild places to where Barzillai lived. The two ideas are true. GOD IS LIKE A GUIDE. GOD IS ALSO LIKE A SHEPHERD. The valley of the River Jabbok was very dark. But with God as guide and shepherd, David was safe. God brought David through the shadow of death. He will do the same for us - if we believe in Jesus. We must all die. It is a great help to know that:

Jesus died and God raised him from the dead
if we believe in Jesus God will raise us from the dead
Verses 5–6: God is like a friend. Psalm 23:1-4 is about life on earth. Psalm 23:5-6 is about life in heaven. Heaven is the home of God. People that believe in Jesus go there. They go there after they die. In the psalm, Barzillai made a great dinner for David. He poured oil, from plants, on David's head. This was usual in those days. He gave David wine to drink. You can make wine from a fruit that we call the grape. It made David feel very happy. But it also made David think this: I WILL ALWAYS LIVE WITH GOD. It is the same for us. If we believe in Jesus we can say, "I will always live in the house of the LORD." The house of the LORD is in heaven.

Something to do

The Bible is in 2 parts. The Old Testament is the first part. It tells us about the time before Jesus came to the earth. The New Testament tells us what happened after he came to the earth. Below are some words from the Bible. Which bit of Psalm 23 do they make you think about?

1. Genesis 48:15 "God has been my shepherd all my life." Jacob said those words just before he died.

2. Samuel 17:20 "They brought honey and butter and meat and cheese for David, and for the people that were with him, to eat. They said, 'They are hungry'." People said those words when David came to Barzillai.

3. Psalm 80:1 Listen, Shepherd of Israel. You led Joseph like a group of sheep. (Joseph is another name for Israel.)

4. Micah 7:14 Feed your sheep with your rod.

5. Luke 15:4-6 Jesus said, "You may have 100 sheep and you lose one. What will you do? You will leave 99 sheep where they are. You will go from the wild country where they are. You will look for the lost one. When you find it, you will be very happy. You will carry it on your shoulders. You will be very happy. You will take it home."

6. John 10:11 Jesus said, "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd will die for the sheep."

7. John 10:27 Jesus said, "My sheep follow me".

8. Jeremiah 2:6 Where is the LORD? He brought us from Egypt. He led us through the wild country. He led us through the shadow of death.

Philippine Government / Relief Goods Free Transportation Act
« on: November 20, 2019, 02:23:44 PM »
MANILA -- The House of Representatives approved on Tuesday on second reading the proposed Relief Goods Free Transportation Act that seeks to facilitate the quick delivery of relief goods and donations to calamity-stricken areas.

HB 5070 aims to bring immediate relief to victims of natural or man-made disasters when government resources are not available or are insufficient to address the needs of the emergency.

It mandates the Logistics Cluster of the Office of Civil Defense, in coordination with the Philippine Postal Corporation (PPC) and all freight companies, common carriers, private carriers, freight forwarders, other companies providing logistic services in the Philippines to provide free freight services to duly registered relief organizations in the transportation of emergency relief goods and donated articles to areas declared to be in a state of calamity.

These common carriers, freight forwarders and other entities are mandated to deliver goods and services free of charge to areas where they operate.

If the calamity-hit area is not accessible, the relief goods shall be delivered to the nearest local government unit and shall be consigned to the concerned local chief executive.

HB 5070 also mandates that certain shipping auxiliary cost, such as those for arrastre services, pilotage and other port charges that are routinely passed on to customers shall be borne by the concerned arrastre, pilotage and port authorities, provided, that container van costs, turnaround time and volume of cargo being shipped for free shall be considered to minimize the loss of profits of the private sector.

The measure also directs the Law and Order Cluster of the National Disaster Risk Reduction Council to provide security and traffic management assistance to facilitate the speedy movement of people, goods and equipment to the affected population and responding agencies. (PNA)

Philippine Daily News / Group advocating children’s rights and welfare
« on: November 20, 2019, 02:22:31 PM »
MANILA – A group advocating children’s rights and welfare has called for the protection of children, who are facing discrimination and social exclusion due to poverty and gender identity, in observance of the World Children's Day on Wednesday.

The Save the Children Philippines (SCP) reported that children with disabilities, as well as teenagers who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) and young teens diagnosed with HIV, continue to face discrimination in schools and communities.

“Rights are denied to children based on many intersecting factors, including economic situation, their gender, their ethnicity or disability,” SCP chief executive officer Albert Muyot said in a statement.

To date, the group implements programs to push for rights of children with disabilities to have access to regular classes through partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd).

Its Global Fund HIV/AIDS project also helps provide vulnerable people to get HIV tests and treatment in 38 high prevalence sites in nine regions in the country, targeting teenagers aged 14 to 19 years old.

In his statement, Muyot also expressed support for the enactment of the Inclusive Education bill which would provide for the implementation of concrete programs and allocate budget to support education of children with disabilities especially those from deprived families and children living in remote provinces.

Citing government figures, SCP said there are an estimated 1.3 million children with disabilities in the Philippines and most of them do not have access to education due to poverty.

“We call on our partners in the government to use full extent of authority and resources to fulfill children’s rights to be healthy, educated and protected from all forms of violence in all settings,” Muyot said.

November 20 marks World Children’s Day and the 30th year of ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Save the Children founder Eglantyne Jebb wrote the Declaration of the Rights of the Child in 1923 and was adopted by the League of Nations, the forerunner of the United Nations.

The document became the basis of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child. (PNA)

Philippine Government / MOOE until December 2020
« on: November 20, 2019, 02:21:03 PM »
MANILA -- The Senate on Wednesday approved on second reading the measure extending the availability of the funds for maintenance and other operating expenses (MOOE) and capital outlays (CO) under the 2019 budget until Dec. 31, 2020.

Senate Bill 1153, which amends Section 65 of the Republic Act 11260, or the General Appropriations Act of 2019, was approved in plenary following Senator Sonny Angara’s sponsorship of the measure.

In his sponsorship speech, Angara said the approval of the measure is necessary as all appropriations that were not released, obligated or paid by the end of Dec. 31, 2019 shall lapse and revert to the national Treasury, as provided under RA 11260 and Executive Order No. 91 on the implementation of the cash budgeting system.

“In other words, without the approval of this measure, precious funds might not be spent and our people will experience even more delays in the projects and social services promised to them,” he said.

The chair of the Senate Committee on Finance said extending the validity of these funds would enable government agencies to implement their projects and provide their services to the people.

“Through this measure, we would be extending a big helping hand to the Executive branch which has had to operate in the first few months of this year on a reenacted budget, and the rest (of the year) under pressure to spend up to PHP3.687 trillion of total available appropriations in a span of approximately seven to eight months amidst an election ban on government projects this year,” he said.

“The Senate is not oblivious to the travails of the Executive branch and we must help them. We must act to see to it that the national budget we had approved for 2019 benefits our people in terms of better services and more efficient public spending. I hope we act on this measure the soonest,” Angara said.

The House of Representatives earlier passed on final reading its own version of the measure.

House Bill 5437 was approved Monday with 192 affirmative votes, with no negative votes or abstention. (PNA)

Bohol Latest News / Bohol governor awaits suspension order
« on: November 19, 2019, 03:55:46 PM »
By Ven C Arigo

SOME have again asked if the reported preventive suspension for Gov. Arthur Yap may have been served already.

The governor had already said several weeks ago that he would serve the 90-day suspension once it would be served. He would comply with the mandated process while the Sandiganbayan trial would go. 

Preventive suspension does not mean someone is guilty of an allegation---much less a punishment because it is, in fact, also not. It is rather mandated by law to avoid a government official or  public figure to use his office to influence over the process of the hearing or trial of the case as alleged.

Daghan na sa Bohol ang mga opisyal ug politiko who were preventively suspended, but the complaints against them just got dismissed in the ultimate.

At the Bohol capitol itself, then Vice Gov. Dionisio Balite led the provincial officials who were suspended by the Sandiganbayan for even nine months. Kadto nagsukad sa reklamo ngadto sa Ombudsman kalabot sa transaksyon sa probinsiya tali sa supplier. Si Balite usa pa ka board member atol sa maong transaksyon sa administrasyon ni then Gov. Erico Aumentado. Igo lang si Balite ug kaubanan sa Sangguniang Panlalawigan niadtong higayona nga nitangdo sa gusto ni Aumentado nga i-authorize ang gobernador nga mo-transact sa bangko to open a letter of credit to pay the supplier by hundreds of millions of pesos.  Bise gobernador na’s Balite sa dihang gi-serve ang preventive suspension. Apan wa kadto nagpasabot nga sad-an o nangawat sila’s Balite.  Gani, posibleng si Aumentado maoy unang gobernador---o kanhi gobernador---nga masuspindir niadtong tungora kon buhi pa siya sa paggawas sa suspension.  Aumentado died before Balite was to become vice governor.

The incumbent governor, Yap, has appeared not unfazed by his reported suspension. Dugay ra siyang nisulti ngadto sa mga Bol-anon pinaagi sa media nga iya lang huwaton kon kanus-a kini i-serve sa Sandiganbayan pinaagi sa DILG.  Di man siya maka-function officially samtang gipatuman ang suspension, apan sa gihapon magpabilin siya nga piniling gobernador sa Bohol---hangtud nga opisyal nga mobalik human sa 90 ka adlaw o tulo ka buwan.  Si Bise Gob. Rene Relampagos maoy magsilbeng acting governor.

Yap has just been awaiting the order to be served. He is ready to comply with the mandated process.

Pabilin siyang makalambigit sa katawhang Bol-anon  isip ilang piniling gobernador bisan sa temporaryong suspensyon sa iyang opisyal nga gimbuhaton.

Puwede siyang mogahin og igo gyod hinuon nga panahon sa pagtanum og mga kahoy, ilabina na fruit trees, kay kini apil sa mga adbokasiya nga nagturok na sa dughan sa iyang administrasyon...

NIPAHIMANGNO ang kapitolyo ngadto sa mga Bol-anon sa pagtamud sa lagda sa Land Transportation Office (LTO) batok sa gidaghanon sa pasahero nga lapas na sa kapasidad sa sakyanan.

Health and Food / Dementia as brain disease
« on: November 18, 2019, 02:39:50 PM »
Dementia is a broad category of brain diseases that cause a long-term and often gradual decrease in the ability to think and remember that is great enough to affect a person's daily functioning. Other common symptoms include emotional problems, difficulties with language, and a decrease in motivation. A person's consciousness is usually not affected. A dementia diagnosis requires a change from a person's usual mental functioning and a greater decline than one would expect due to aging. These diseases also have a significant effect on a person's caregivers.

Philippine Business News / Pork Products from Luzon Seized in Dumaguete
« on: November 18, 2019, 01:23:50 PM »
DUMAGUETE CITY -- Authorities in Negros Oriental have seized more raw pork products from Luzon as it continues its intensified watch against the entry of the African swine fever (ASF) virus in the province.

Dr. Alfonso Tundag, quarantine officer of the provincial office of the Bureau of Animal Industry, said on Friday that one-and-a-half kilograms of fresh chorizo and sausage were intercepted at the Dumaguete-Sibulan airport on Thursday afternoon.

Veterinary quarantine inspector Joseph Oderf Orillano confiscated the items, placed inside a styro box, from a passenger of a commercial flight from Manila that landed at the airport here at about 3:05 p.m.

The items were disinfected and buried immediately, Orillano said.

The passenger was cooperative when informed that the confiscated pork products did not have the necessary documents, such as a certificate of meat inspection and a shipping permit, he added.

Tundag said the frozen pork products were manufactured in Cavite, one of the areas with an ASF outbreak.

The Visayas and Mindanao remain ASF-free, and provincial and local governments are scrambling to prevent the entry of the virus, which affects pigs but has no health implication on humans.

Some parts of the region have ordered a total ban on raw pork meat and by-products from Luzon although Negros Oriental still allows entry upon presentation of the necessary documents, Tundag said.

Bringing out of pork and its by-products from here is not allowed as Dumaguete does not have a Double AA slaughterhouse that is accredited by the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS), he added.  Only abattoirs with such ratings are allowed to butcher animals to avoid illegal slaughter in the community and prevent any kind of animal disease.

Tundag said a person who applied for a permit from his office to bring 5 kg. of pork to Bohol for personal consumption had been denied.

The city government has poured in more than PHP4 million to upgrade the slaughterhouse so that in a few months, it could apply for NMIS accreditation, he added. (PNA)

Bible Study / Jesus Christ died on the cross
« on: April 08, 2019, 08:22:00 AM »
By Wesley Negron

Yes, 100%. You have to know a little history and linguistics though.

It was universally accepted for centuries, by both believers and secular historians that Jesus was crucified (on a cross). Then along came the Jehovah’s Witnesses in the 1870’s and they “discovered” that everyone had it all wrong all this time. And they’ve made it a focal point of their doctrine.

They make a lot of noise about the Greek word—STAUROS—that is translated CROSS in our English Bibles. STAUROS did originally mean POLE or STAKE in the centuries leading up to Christ’s birth.

The Greeks, during those times, didn’t have a word for CROSS, because they didn’t use CROSSES for execution. That was instituted by the Romans when conquering that region.

The Greeks had to adapt their language to come up with a word to describe this new method of execution. Instead of inventing a new word or taking a word from another language, they employed an existing word and gave it a new meaning. So STAUROS was used to refer to a CROSS, thus giving it a new meaning.

Scientists who study languages call this the DIACHRONIC development of languages.

So today, the Greek word STAUROS means CROSS.

That’s why if you look at any GREEK Church building, on top you will not see a stake. You’ll see what?

BSP Conducts Succesful Operation Against Currency Mutilation

The operatives of the Currency Management Sector of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (CMS-BSP) recently conducted a successful operation against currency mutilation in Real, Quezon which led to the arrest of two suspects.

On 14 March 2019, joint operatives of the CMS-BSP and the National Bureau of Investigation Lucena District Office (NBI-LUCDO) arrested suspect Ronnie Espiritu while in the act of committing the crime of defacing and removing the core metal of the 10-Piso coin, which is part of the 2001 BSP Coin Series. His companion, suspect Rodolfo Corral who was present during the actual operation, was also arrested. Mr. Corral had previous knowledge of the criminal acts of Mr. Espiritu and even uploaded a coin mutilation video in his social media account last January. The video went viral and attracted the attention of authorities. Several mutilated Philippine coins and implements used by the suspects were found in plain view and subsequently seized by the CMS-BSP and the NBI-LUCDO.

Under Section 50 of Republic Act No. 7653, otherwise known as “The New Central Bank Act”, the BSP is vested with police authority to investigate, make arrests, and conduct searches and seizures in accordance with law for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of the currency.

Charges were filed against the suspects before the Office of the Provincial Prosecutor, Lucena City for violation of Presidential Decree No. 247 (Prohibiting and Penalizing Defacement, Mutilation, Tearing, Burning or Destruction of Central Bank Notes and Coins) and Republic Act No. 10175 (An Act Defining Cybercrime, Providing for the Prevention, Investigation, Suppression and the Imposition of Penalties Therefor and for Other Purposes). The suspects are currently under the custody of the NBI-LUCDO.

On 19 February 2019, the BSP issued a statement warning the public that willful defacement, mutilation, tearing, burning or destruction of Philippine banknotes and coins are punishable by a fine of not more than PHP20,000.00 and/or imprisonment of not more than five years under Presidential Decree No. 247.

The BSP encourages the public to report any information on mutilation of Philippine currency to the nearest police station or law enforcement agency for appropriate action or contact the CMS-BSP for assistance at Tel. Nos. 988-4833 and 926-5092.
