Graduation Speech – Sis. Lorelie Ceniza

IT WAS IN JANUARY 2009 THAT I FIRST STEP IN MY CLASS FOR THE STUDY OF PENTATEUCH AND THE BEGINNING OF MY JOURNEY OF GOD’S AMAZING POWER AND HIS SOVEREIGNTY. I ENJOYED THE THRILL OF HIS CREATION IN GENESIS BY THE POWER & UTTERANCE OF HIS WORD ALONE.

Sis Lilay CenizaMY HEARTBEAT STEPPED UP A BIT WHEN I READ 1 & 2 KINGS IN THE MIDST OF KINGDOM WARS, THE BATTLE OF GOD AGAINST THE PAGAN KINGDOM. AND I ASKED MYSELF WHY I DIDN’T READ AND FIND INTERESTING IN THESE THINGS BEFORE? THEN CAME THE HEART WRENCHING BOOKS OF JOB, JEREMIAH, LAMENTATIONS WHERE I UNDERTAND THAT NOBOBDY WANTS TO DWELL LONG IN THOSE BOOKS BUT IT TOUCH MY HEART SO MUCH THAT GOD GAVE ME THE PRIVILEGE TO FACILITATE THE BOOK OF LAMENTATIONS WITH PASSION AND ZEAL… AND LO BEHOLD! THE ULTIMATE COMPLETION OF THE FORESHADOWED ERA IN THE OLD TESTAMENT OF THE COMING KING AND MESSIAH,  JESUS CHRIST IN THE NEW TESTAMENT (THE ERA OF GRACE), WHO IS THE BEGINNING AND THE  END, THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA!

THEN I STARTED SHARING THIS ENTHUSIASM WITH THE BRETHEREN AND CONVINCED THEM TO ENROLL LIKE SIS SALVE WHO GRADUATED WITH US ALSO TODAY, SIS ANA DUALOS TO NAME A FEW AND AMAZINGLY MY BROTHER WHO WAS CHALLENGED BY MY TESTIMONY IN EVERY FAMILY GATHERING THAT I SHARE MY IBI EXPERIENCE. UP UNTIL THIS TIME I TRY TO CONVINCE PEOPLE TO ENROLL WITH IBI.

THE JOURNEY IS GREAT, INSPIRING & SPIRIT MOVING,  ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU COME TO CHURCH HISTORY WHERE YOU SEE PEOPLE GIVING THEIR LIVES TO DEFEND THEIR CHRISTIAN FAITH. NOW I UNDERSTAND WHAT THE COST TO PAY TO FOLLOW JESUS AND PARTAKE IN HIS SUFFERINGS. AS PAUL HAS SAID,”I HAVE FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT, I HAVE FINISHED THE RACE, I HAVE KEPT THE FAITH. NOW THERE IS IN STORE FOR ME THE CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, WHICH THE LORD, THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, WILL AWARD TO ME ON THAT DAY—AND NOT ONLY TO ME, BUT ALSO TO ALL WHO HAVE LONGED FOR HIS APPEARING.” (2 TIMOTHY 4:7-8)

THIS IS WHAT IBI HAS ACCOMPLISHED IN MY JOURNEY TO ENDURE AND TO HOPE IN THE ETERNAL GLORY  OF MY LORD JESUS CHRIST.
