Imprisoned by SELF

Imprisoned by self

This phenomenon requirement of immense understanding of how and why people who had said prayer to accept Jesus Christ and had walked the life of a Christian and yet are being trapped by their Own imprisonment without Knowing. Outwardly they seems alright but most of the time, without knowing, it is the self convincing and self consoling of being okay that make them a Whitewashed wall Christian. Only through conviction and the grace of Lord Jesus that one may be broken down and only if out of the emptiness one could realized the needs to be wholly filled by the goodness of the Holy spirit, then they will be released Completely from the bondage to the Self and worldliness by the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ. We will be using the 2 different lives, a big contrast between Lot and Job.

LOT, imprisoned by selfishness all his life.

Genesis 13:5-12 “And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and tents. And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell together. And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram’s cattle and the herdmen of Lot’s cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite dwelled then in the land. And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen; for we be brethren. Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee, from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar. Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other. Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.”

LOT was Abram’s cousin. God blessed Abram so much that the land is not able to hold Abram and Lot’s family. There were strift between them so Abram suggested that they stay separate. But Lot was very SELFISH, without showing gratitude to what Abram had done for him. He chooses the best land for himself. This action of Selfishness of Lot later birth to Lot being in league with cursed Cities where Sodom and Gomorrah becomes very evil and God had the Angels destroyed them. Thus the cities represent SELF and Ground (Worldliness).

LOT, imprisoned by his doubts.

Genesis 19:17-38 “And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed. And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord. Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die. Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live. And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken. Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters. And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our Father. And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose. Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father. And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day. And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.”

So Lot had requested the Lord (Angels) to dwell in City called Zoar so that he and his daughters can dwell there. Unfortunately, he let his thoughts, (which is the Evil of all things) take control of him and he becomes DOUBTFUL and thus leading him into the Mountain where sin of incest was committed between him and his daughters. The offspring of the SIN (as a result of doubts) thus give birth to Enemies of GOD, the Moabites and Ammonites. In another words, doubts cost Lot to lost his Spiritual Life. The blessings from God which Lot had requested (a new place), he did not received it gracefully leads him to another place of curse since he moved further away from God’s blessing.

So, for us Christian, we really have to examine ourselves. Did we make request from God our Lord Jesus for things and then discard it just because our thoughts is that it come too easily and we decided to lusts for something better and better? Be careful, my Friends the “better” things that perceive could be a curse or in fact it is the temptation of the Shadow of Darkness.

Lot had never get out as a FREE unselfish man to serve God but instead he was imprisoned by his SELFISHNESS. (Where it is the SELF CENTRED thought that creates doubts in God’s given Vision) For it is selfishness that makes him think that he is more righteous than others, doubting all the time. What he wanted is the best for himself. His life is spent on sins.

Job, the unselfish FREE man.

Job 1:21-22 “And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

God allowed Satan to test Job. He lost everything and yet he didn’t blame God. Instead he still blessed the name of the LORD. His profound declaration that everything is provided and given by God, and the LORD has every right to take it away from him.

His three good friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar sat them with Job for seven days and seven nights to mourn with him without saying a word. What a great friends! In our modern society who can sit down with a friend for even 3 days without talking? But all three of them break their silent and trying to say that Job suffered because he had sinned and ask him to repent. But Job in his unselfish righteousness found no comfort from his friend. In the end, Job passed the test and he the LORD restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends.

Job 42:7-10 “And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath. Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job. So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite went, and did according as the LORD commanded them: the LORD also accepted Job.
And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.”

So it is true, all Children of God, being Christian are subject to test. A great man like Job is unselfish is a FREE man serving God. While those who are selfish would not be able to understand God’s work.

Both punishment by God (because of sins and curse) and testing by Satan (as authorised by God) may result in the same way, lost of love one, possession, strike with sickness and other adversity.

There are differences between those Christians under punishment and those Christians under test. Those under punishment has NO direct communication with God and the danger for these group of people is that they aren’t aware and thought that they are under test. All these punishments are a result of bondage to one’s SELFISHNESS.

Where Selfishness is the root of all sins.

While Christian under Test may suffer the same thing but they still has direct communication with God. God will continue to chasten them, guide them and eventually lift them out of adversity and rewards them abundantly.

Christian under punishment needs someone of good faith to intercede on their behalf for forgiveness, just like Job intercede for his three friends Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar. If they turn around and repent they will be forgiven, but if they stayed as rebellious and being stubborn. They will never get out of the imprisonment. Forever imprisoned by Self.

FREEDOM in Prison

FREEDOM in prison

No, I am not talking about how to escape from Prison. I am sharing a testimony of a real experience of an ex-convict.
Those olden days.
I remember those days, when we see policemen in shorts. You know, those days, where our means of communication was the chunky Telephone system where lamp poles lined the streets. And the telephone lines were strung across the whole Singapore Island, inches away from the power lines. Kites hung perilously on these wires, breaking the hearts of those boys or girls who had lost them. The phone in those day use the rotary dial with the pulsing sound of “Click” “Click” as it goes through numbers by numbers.
Chye Kay Village
Every morning when I woke up, I saw the streets littered with broken glass bottles from the previous night’s gang fights. Our home was however very safe from these gangster. Perhaps, mainly because we were a good friend to one of the gangster leader, where everyone called him “Toa Eee” which in Hokkien means “Big Baby”. I guess my eldest Sister was really pretty at that time. The Village we lived in was called Chye Kay Village. Oh yes, I remembered the roadway was of hardened red soil, back in the 1960s. Each time after rain, the road was slippery and school girls and boys who had fallen went to school with soiled clothing.
We knew the Gangster leader
“Big Baby” came to our home once every week. For most of the visits, my sister had to help him with medication to treat his bruised and at times bleeding knuckles due to fights. My sisters had advised him to get out of his gang but he said that he can’t. I’m not sure which gang he was from. At that time we had “Kee Leng Tong” “Ang Soon Tong”. So we will make him coffee. And after two hours or so, he would go off. He never stayed more than 4 hours. His family operates a Grocery Shop. It is less than 3 mins from the main Sembawang Road.
Then, Chye Kay Village had the road ungraded to asphalt. Though we no longer have a slippery road after the rain we still had even more broken bottles from gangster fights. Maybe the gangsters took advantage of the new hardened ground to smash more glass bottles to show off their ferocity. My house was a zinc roofed Bungalow with 5 Rambutans Trees and two durian trees at our backyard. Opposite my house was the Chinese cemetery. Many gang fights occurred there. The different gangs wanted to establish territorial control. Once, “Big Baby” gangsters chased a rival gangster into our house, and he ran straight to the kitchen, hiding behind the cabinet. In fear, he lost his weapon. All the 3 to 5 gangsters were armed with knives and wooden clubs. Then “Big Baby” came in and scolded his gangsters for coming into our house. We pleaded for mercy for the gangster hiding in the kitchen. Immediately, “Big Baby” ordered his gangsters to leave our house. And they all left without pursuing the rival gangster who ran away through our kitchen’s back door. This is not the first time we had pleaded for someone’s mercy. I remember, once during the “Kai Yam” (curfew), when the Malay and Chinese were fighting and killing one another, one 4 mths pregnant Malay lady ran into our grass compound. She fell and pleaded for mercy and we saw a group of 3 Chinese village people about to jab the sawed off sharpened 1/2″ pipe into her belly. However we managed to plead for mercy for her in time and her life was spared.
“Big Baby” escaped from jail.
For almost one year we had not seen “Big Baby”. One day, “Big Baby” suddenly appeared in our house and my sister asked him why we didn’t see him for a long time. He said he had just escaped from the prison and that he was put behind bars after injuring someone seriously. After talking awhile without even having time for coffee, he left hastily. Then, 3 days later, we heard from some village friends that he was captured by the police again. 6 months later, surprisingly, he came to our house. He said that he managed to escaped from jail again. Then he left in a hurry. We didn’t know where he had gone to. As time went by, technology began to improve and we had a black and white TV at our Community Centre. I think it was the Nee Soon Community Centre. Our favorite TV show was Ultraman. My father was the bread winner at that time driving the Tay Kor Yak bus. My 2 sisters, the 2nd and 3rd, worked for the “Ang Mo” expat as maids while my eldest sister worked at home making clothes for people. Then my father proudly bought a black and white TV and he was very proud because my uncles and neighbours do not have one. Everybody came to our house to watch TV in the hall. For many years, we did not see” Big Baby” and forgot about him.
Someone familiar.
After almost 3 years plus, a tall clean shaven male visitor came to our house. He wore neat long pants with a gray long sleeved shirt holding a Holy Bible in his hand written in Chinese. He sat on the sofa only after my sister had invited him. Who was this couteous man, I wondered. I overheard my sister say with a surprised tone that he was “Big Baby”. He continued to speak to my sister after flipping some pages of the scriptures. And then he decided to move on. This time, he said ?Good bye? to everyone, something which he had never done before. The Lord Jesus Christ had set him free whilst he was kept captive in prison. He was set FREE from bondage to this Self and Worldliness. His mind was at peace and there was no need to escape from prison. I was maybe 6 to 7 years old at that time. So, I didn’t know much. My elder sister said that he accepted Jesus Christ after being counseled by a Pastor and he preached the Gospel to many inmates during those years that he was in prison. After “Big Baby” left us, we did not see him anymore even up till today.

My Friends, let the Lord Jesus Christ be your savior today. Even a gangster with a heart of iron can be touched and softened by God. I don’t see why you should not give yourself a chance today. It is not about religion or any commitment to join a Church, it is about connecting back to the Grace and Glory of God. There is nothing to lose. Whatever is physical will perish but the life that God gives is everlasting.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Releasing from Bondage to SELF and WORLDLINESS.

Genesis19:17 “so it came to pass, when they (the Angels) had brought them (Lot, 2 daughters and wife) outside ‘that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.”

Genesis 19:24 “Then the LORD rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the LORD out of the Heaven.”

Genesis 19:24 “But his wife looked back behind him, and she become a pillar of salt.”

Interesting story, the 2 cities Sodom and Gomorrah represents “SELF and WORLDLINESS” It doesn’t matter which one represent which. Reborn Christian choosing to look back, (in the other words, lusting for Worldliness and Self; things such as past achievements or something or someone who was so dear to him or her that they cannot let go) they will face SPIRITUAL DEATH!” You need the Power of the Holy Spirit, in the name of LORD Jesus to help to release from the Bondage to the “SELF and WORLDLINESS”.

Answer is Jonah.
Because Jonah disobeyed God, he ran away from his mission to speak to the people in Nineveh and to warn them of their wickedness.
Jonah 1:17 “Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights”.

This is the Biggest Prison of all time, just for one person, Jonah. He was IN THE BELLY OF a whale – the dark, stinky stomach of the fish where there are dead bodies and filthy things inside. We are fortunate that we don’t have to be like Jonah. But we can consider that Jonah was fortunate, as at least he had direct communication with GOD. Worse off are those who have carefree and peaceful live but they aren’t sure if they are saved or NOT.
Then Jonah repented.
Jonah 1:9-10 “But I will sacrifice to you with the voice of thanksgiving. I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD. So the LORD spoke to the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land”.
So Jonah carried out his mission but he was angry with God because he knew with his wisdom that God will forgive the people of Nineveh. He was very concerned about his own FACE. Click here to read about “Which Face you want to show.” God taught Jonah a lesson by making things happen. PLEASE READ BOOK OF JONAH FOR COMPLETE STORY.

End Notes:

Unfortunately, we do not have contact with “Big Baby” He is probably at the age of 62 plus years old by now. My old home Town, Chye Kay Village was Gazetted by Government. Grave yard exhumed, rubber tree plantations removed and ground leveled. Chye Kay Village was also called Nee Soon twelve and half mile. I remembered each Rambutan tree was compensated for only S$200 plus. Each year we can sell 3 times the compensated amount. Now, it is part of Yishun Estate and we all moved to AMK. And Chye Kay Village is in history. Added Notes: 19/05/2009 by Stanley Tan Praise the Lord, the route to completion of this faith. For Lord Jesus had said “I am the creator of all faith and the finisher.” 24/8/08 ==>Sharing by Fuyuki Kato (Inspired me to write a gangster true story) 19/9/08==>Prayer by E388, our Holy Spirit lead me to write this story. (have wish to know the accuracy of story, because it was writtened based on faith and at that time, I was too young to know much thing, only 6 to 7 years old) 23/12/08==>My Hope Singapore (arranged by E388, our Holy Spirit revealed that Pastor Neiville could be the person I was looking for) 18/05/09==>Today met Pastor Neiville Tan. Iron Man - Neiville Tan Pastor Neiville Tan confirmed that the story I wrote was quite accurate. He said that he had met “Toa Ee” while he was in Prison. Pastor Neiville Tan was release from prison in 1972. He told that “Toa Ee” was still serving jail term at that time. Today, Pastor Neiville said that “Toa Ee” or Bobby is being blessed, wealthy and is now staying in Canada. His age is now 60. If it is God’s will, my wish to met hime will be fulfilled. Amen Love you Lord Jesus.

THE NUMBERS ARE NEARING, WHERE IS THY PLACE OF WORSHIP?

The Vision is clear, our place of worship shall have massive structures

Many rows of seats that looked like staircases

The altar shall be at the center place of focus, opening to the sky

The children of God is nearing prophesied numbers

The pledge of fund is fulfilling soon

Grief is that the location is not correctly known yet

I saw Angels trails dancing and flying above the Seats

One is in deep Red, the other is in Gold

The Red is not with fiery flame as it should be

The Gold is not with glittering Gold as it should be

Our Angels of God is not joyful flying in circle

The place is to be, is where the Angels must rejoice

Our Angels must be able to burn with glorious flame and glittering Gold

Then the Red Angel trail Opened a box and inside it looked like Bun with sausage in between

The place is to be where our Angels can fly right out to the sea for a Victorious return (1)

For our almighty God of armies shall win countless battle against the pair of rising horns (2)

Many lost souls will be redeemed into God’s kingdom with our stretched out hands

The house of God shall have immediate openned arms to welcome redeemed souls brought home by our angels

The power of Prayer from Servants of God will have stretching hands pointing against the horns, defeating its evil power

The place is to be is where the sea breeze can blow right into the House of God (1)

For the market place shall be NOT built by mankind (2)

But it will be built by our God Almighty, Lord Jesus

A venue that has not been touch by man but built by our Lord Jesus

A brand new market place, created and name after the house of God (3)

There will be no obstacles to disrupt transportation of Servants to worship God, even the waterway can be the direct assess to our place of worship. (4)

The place is to be is where the fund can fulfill sooner than expected (5)

For the House of God must be ready before the number of is reached.

Let this be understood by the choosen wise man of God

Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

WOULD YOU CUT THE ROPE?

Cutting the rope, the father’s life is being sacrificed for the survival of his son and daughter. Not cutting the rope, everybody’s life is at stake.
The son definitely was in very difficult position. He had to decide fast enough whether to cut the rope or not. Cutting the rope, he definely sent his father to his death. Not cutting the rope, all will die together because the rope anchor point was loosening up. But the constant beckoning by his father that he should not let his sister die, he finally cut the rope. The love for the sister is great too.

If the father has the knife, he would had cut the rope without hesitation; such is the love of the father for his children. Food for thought. If you are the person below, pulling others down and you have the knife and yet totally unrelated to the people hanging above you, would you sacrifice your life by cutting the rope so that others can live? Or would you hold on to the rope and has this selfish thought “Since I had fallen, I will hold on to the rope and all should die together?”
Let us examine the sequence of event leading to this tragedy. Someone had lost the grip of the bag and dropped due to careless mistake. It is not heavy, just contained some tools, inside the bag, worth some money. But this weight due to velocity of fall accumulated such great forces that pulled 2 men off the anchors. What happened next is the daughter, son and father was hanging by the rope with their safety jeopardized by the two men below them. The father had to release the 2 men because they were selfishly struggling, kicking and violently shaking the rope. It was a very important decision the father had to make, that is to let them go and fell to their death. THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS THIS.
In Christian life, sometimes an individual (represented by the person who dropped the bag) may had done or committed something wrong that they may think is insignificant. They didn’t realized that this “Small error” would accumulate to such a great force of problem that, like the dropped bag,  accumulates velocity such that the force is so great that it pulled the men off their anchor. The person on top maybe asked to lead by the leader (represented by the father of the daughter and the son). That careless mistake by people on top leads everyone to fall and all hung perilously by the rope. The father had to disconnect the fallen men below because they would not listen to instructions but kept making lots of noise and worsening the situation. The moral of the story, he or she who is the leader, may selfishly continuing holding on to the rope even though knowing that they had make the mistake and endangering others’ lives. It was a mistake to engage careless people on top. Would the fallen he or she cut the rope? Is cutting the rope is the only solution to save others?

Or if cutting the Rope, God, our Lord Jesus would engage the Angels to prepared soft ground so that you didn’t die but suffered some bruise from hitting soft ground. Today, none of us have to cut the rope because Jesus Christ is above us, with his Angels, holding onto the rope and helping us climbing up the mountain inch by inch till we reach the top with him. We will not fall. Hellelujah, Praise the Lord!

Heaven, is it significant?

Heaven? Is significant? Greeting to all my friends and Gift of Faith be with you.

In this part of the testimony, I would like to share my innermost thought which I did not pen down in my earlier testimony. I can’t remember when I backslide. I married my Non-Christian wife on 8th May 1986, so it must be early 1985. We had courtship for about a year plus, went on tour, outing, shopping and watched movies and get married. It doesn’t matter when the date is I backslide anyway. Why I waited until now to write this article? Well, I have to confess that it is because I wasn’t very sure of how to testify for Our Lord Jesus. After having read about the different between Spirit and Soul, the inspiration somehow kick starts me to write today. In those day when I was backslide, I told myself that there is nothing much about Heaven, I can’t visualize nor feel about it. I can just forgo Heaven. After all, I can live this part of my life and when the day comes for me to Rest in Peace, well, hopefully I already been successful and had provided sufficiently for my family to carry on with their life, my life would just past away; it just doesn’t bother me thereafter where my soul goes, I can never forget what my mindset at that point of time was, Heaven is insignificant to me. So, I’ll just go about my life doing what many people is still doing today, that is, living and struggling for the right to stay alive in this part of the world. It is good that I still have good conscience in me. The improved intelligent that was once conditioned by THE WISDOM, I used it for good purpose.

Many Christian friends, 5 of them (including a very good RSAF friend, who is now a Pastor in a well known Church) could not bring me back to the Kingdom of God. My path back to Kingdom of God has to be prepared by someone whom we respect and loved. The someone who has been faithful, humble and in constant fasting and prayer. She brought me to Church and I was rebuked 3 times by Our Lord Jesus. He had proven far beyond my human intelligent that he is my BEST businessman and the Only Solution to ALL PROBLEMS faced by mankind.

To be honest, after being reborn on 2nd December 2007. I still don’t really grasp the Heaven’s reality, can’t Visualize nor feel it. But my good friend had come back to me, The Gift of Wisdom by our Helper, the Holy Spirit. Yes, the Intelligent is getting nourished and reconditioned again to help me see the light of God, our Lord Jesus. And the words I spoke and wrote is thus seasoned by the Salt again, gaining favors. I wanted to tell people about this promotion to higher Spiritual Level as compared to more than 20 years back but somehow I decided to hold back because of concern that people may not take it positively. Then, on 19th April 2008, our Church had a service by invited speaker, Rev Dr Kim SungHae, she said earnestly that WISDOM helped her to be a Professional Shopper. This spur me to boldly declare the Spiritual Gifts that my Partner, our Holy Spirit had brought into me, giving glory to our Lord Jesus Christ. I did this on 24th May 2008 at the first chapter of 9 Gifts Of The Holy Spirit by Rev. Richard Roberts 2 Apr 2006 Of course when I did this by telling some Christian about it, they had these unhealthy worldly thinking that I am trying to show off or that I think too highly of myself. In fact, I had someone who told me off that I think too highly of myself. Well, should I be angry with the person or feel sad about it? Why bother? I am doing God’s Will, I rejoiced every moment doing God’s will, why care about those down to earth human thought? During one of the Church service in the Month of May 2008, Rev Dr Kong Hee said “Just like you’re celebrating your friends’ birthday, your friend appreciates your gift. In the same way our Father in Heaven will give us Spiritual Gift by manifestation of Holy Spirit, we should also boldly declare and gives thanks to our Heavenly Father too.” Hallelujah! That message really comes as a Gift of Faith for me, because the message gives me the assurance that I am doing the right thing by boldly declared the Spiritual Gifts that my Partner, Our Holy Spirit had brought into me.

It is this intimacy of closer walk with our Lord Jesus with the help of Holy Spirit that I started to feel the important of Heaven, though I can’t feel nor visualize it yet. Slightly more than 20 years back, I was a strong Christian. Back then, I was only able to interpret Biblical symbols and wrote some poems. Today, I am able to write parables, create web site, breaking and tweaking php codes, know how to run the web hosting business and receive Vision and write more articles. Please read the rest of the articles; there are testimony of how my prayers were answered and a few occasions, even though I did not pray for certain thing to happen our Lord Jesus knows my heart well; he had overwhelmingly satisfied my desire without me asking for it in prayer; two blessed happenings. I did not write in any article as yet. One Friday morning, I was reading the Book of Leviticus 10:9, I wanted to know the meaning of Tabernacle but somehow I forgot to check on the Dictionary. The same night, CG meeting us had a lesson on the Tabernacle. When I am hungry for knowledge, our Lord Jesus just arranged it for me. Same for any brother and sister, if you are hungry for knowledge and spiritual growth, Our Lord Jesus will provide for you. The other happened on one Sunday morning service; a brother bought me a book titled “Undercover”. I wanted so much to know how to reveal messages to certain senior and yet not to let them feel as though I am going against THE AUTHORITY. This book that was supernaturally bought by one of my brother thus taught and showed me how to do it. That is, reveal whatever I see and hear to senior in the same way a prophet was telling the King about certain warning and prophecy with respect. Well, my work has been completed at this ground and by the grace of Our Lord Jesus; I was brought to another new ground now.

So, it is these closers walk with our Lord Jesus with the help of Holy Spirit, that my life becomes more complete and meaningful. I can never be alone anymore, because, my partner, Our Holy Spirit is always with me. What he excite or tell me to do, I cannot refuse. It is this intimacy with God, Our Lord Jesus that I feel, joyful, secure, work wiser and has the capacity to do more things. Provisions after provisions of my needs without fail. Finally, a breakthrough, my Sister Laura wrote a Review on “Heaven is So Real.” and she lend me the book. After reading this book, I can Visualize and feel that Heaven is Real! Hallelujah. You can see my review by clicking this link Title Personal review of Choo Thomas’s book “Heaven is so real” Perhaps, that is the reason why our Lord Jesus had to use Sister Choo Thomas to write this book, as there are many Christian like myself, can’t feel nor visualize Heaven. I strongly encourage all backslided Christian to come back to our Lord Jesus, maybe you are in the same shoe as me, you felt the same way as me “Heaven is insignificant, I’ll just live this part of my life.” Give yourself a chance to have closer walk with the Holy Spirit and not only that you will feel as being loved as the Son of Heavenly Father but also you are able to visualized and feel that Heaven is Real. Non-believer too, if our natural father can do good things for us. Our Heavenly father can do even much greater things for you!

BLESSED FRUIT TREE NEED NOT CHANGE GROUND

broken branches
From the start, the Lord had said, this tree shall be blessed and bear fruit
It started to yield good fruits but there is some kind sickness at its roots
It begins to rot, causing some branches to bear bad fruits
The Lord had decided that good ground is for good tree only
Thus, the Lord had make the tree that bear bad fruit to uproot itself and
Move to other Ground, how many ground has it got to move to?
Every uprooting and replanting had caused some branches to lost its hold
Yet, this tree doesn’t care much about loosing its branches
There are eyes that can see and advised that bad branches should be cut away
So that the whole tree can be renewed and bear good fruits again
So that the root may be healed of its rots and be healthy again
Trumpet has sounded many times
And yet the tree still don’t heed the trumpet sound
Weaken it will become and no good ground shall be prepared for it to grow again.
It shall remains as a cursed tree forever and slowly it will wither away
This Tree can’t complain nor blame anyone else because it bring the curse upon itself.
For the lord had said that good tree producing good fruit shall remains on fertile ground.

Thus, the people of Israel had united and had held the Sword and struck.

For the Bible said :-

Luke 12:51-53 “Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

So, many times there are disagreement amongst Christian regarding certain things. It could be the truth being revealed and the loving Sister or brother tried to correct the situation but the dispirited mind is just very stubborn and divided and creates a storm. I really love the message by Rev Dr Kim SungHae. She said during the sermon “Sometimes in Church, the elders don’t agreed on certain things. So I arranged for all of them to have a wonderful dinner together. The dinner was good, everyone was happy and the NO becomes YES.” Have we thought of having a wonderful dinner first, let our stomach and heart be contended first before we speak? How about this other message from her “When I am in Spirit, I am like walking on the Air, and always there are storm being stirred up by people on the ground. And always there is Lord Jesus in the middle of the storm to help to calm down the storm to bring peace. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!” I love this message very much. Those who are not in spirit are very rooted to the earth, worldly thinking. Can’t really see nor understand the Will of God and what they perceived as correct according to their thinking can create lots of trouble. Just like when Peter try to show that he love Jesus more than others by saying to Jesus that he don’t allow him to be crucified. Many would have this Human thinking that Peter really loves Jesus but not knowing that it was the work of Satan going against the Will of God. If you really love someone, would you want to see the person going for death? Definitely not! But the prophecy must be fulfilled and only those who are in faith know the Will of God and will not say anything against it. PRIDE causes the Fall of Lucifer to become Satan. PRIDE causes Christian to fall and slowly but surely not able to receive answer from God, Our Lord Jesus. He or she will turn to the Dark Shadow for answer and most of the time without realizing it. So it is Peter’s PRIDE had caused him to say something against the Son of Man, the Will of God.

Luke 5:36 “No one puts a piece from a new garment on an old one; otherwise the new makes a tear, and also the piece that was taken out of the new does not match the old”.

Mattew 18:8 “If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire.”

Surely, I said “The SWORD is the WORD and the TRUTH, for those who are spirit filled and are humble shall suffered no pain as the Helper, Our Holy Spirit had prepared the bad part to be departed without pains. For those who resist the help from our Helper, they shall suffer great pains when the sword is struck. Worst are those who stubbornly refused to having their bad part cut away and they shall suffer unbearable pains and be thrown into the everlasting fire.”

Division between own people?

Very sad isn’t it? Why set division? I thought we are supposed to be united and love one another?

My only explanation is this, it is about division between people who hold the SWORD of God versus those who don’t. The truth set people apart. And those who love the WORD and acquired TRUTH from Kingdom of Heaven will win the Spiritual Warfare and they will be united by the Faith of LOVE. While those loving the WORLD is being used by the Shadow of Darkness (the King of all lies) will be broken up not only by army of God and but also by their own kind because there is no unity of LOVE but hatred amongst themselves.

End Notes:

Word of Knowledge/Wisdom came upon me nearing the end of meeting on 29/6/08 at around 1.45pm. The raw message was “How could a Tree uprooted and planted again many times, not loosing its branches.” I give prayer and very often, my Helper instruct me to write it down, so this story is the completed end product.
On the Same day about same time, a miracle happened. My spiritual daughter Cichi from Surabaya, 853 miles away. SMS me “In ur journey 2 life, the Word of GOD is ur map & HIS Wisdom is ur compass. And when U face battles, let love be ur armor & let GOD be ur shelter! Hv a nice SunDay.” Praise the Lord, Hellujah! I am very thrilled with this Gift of Faith from our Lord Jesus and I forward this SMS to 4 persons. This UNION OF THE HOLY MESSAGE is the same as what Pastor Tan said while in Prayer, he mentioned about Wisdom, Spiritual Battle, the armor, etc

SMS from Cichi Surabaya 1.52pm 29/06/08

Addon Notes 04/07/08. As I read the SMS again for the 3rd time. I understood the message very clearly. Whatever action we take to correct a situation. It must be done with LOVE. Without love, all works amounts to NOTHING.

Added note 30/07/08. The Map of God show you places to go and things to do. Vision, which need Wisdom to interpret and understand will give you the direction of where is your first priority of Heading. And since you’re doing God’s work, there will be Spiritual battle, and you are protected. The 2 angels who has been since beginning till end day will protect you.” Praise our Lord Jesus. Hallelujah!

A fool and his wisdom is soon parted


While in prayer yesterday morning, this word of wisdom/knowledge came upon me and I had to write it down

A fool continuing doing foolish things,
Will have his Wisdom running away from him.
He will end up being a complete fool.
A man, with Wisdom of God will always do God’s Will
He will gain more Wisdom and knowledge.
And he will inherit the treasure from Kingdom of Heaven
Because he places his heart where the Heavenly treasure is.
A wise man knows when and where to cast his net
He will catch a multitude of fishes.
While a fool catches nothing because he cast his net at
the wrong place and at the wrong time always.

Notes: That is to say in God’s eyes, people not doing God’s will are foolishly risking their life. Many dormant Christian do not have close walk with the Holy Spirit daily (Our Helper), thus are not connected to God. I love Rev Dr Kong Hee’s preaching about SMS. Without the Charged-up by the Holy Spirit (ie, communion with the Holy Spirit), the battery is too weak and you could not get connected to God and you can never hear God, thus not able to do God’s will. So the individual has been doing what he or she think is God’s Will, but unfortunately, these are all false Garments that God, Our Lord Jesus sees as improper OUTFIT !!! And the person’s Nakedness of Shame will be exposed.
Revelations 16:15 “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”

Matt 22:10: So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
Matt 22:11: And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
Matt 22:12: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
Matt 22:13: Then the King said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

For the Second Coming of Christ is Not far away, this is prophentic message had been mentioned by many servants of God again and again.
The Bride (those who had been serving faithfully and truly doing God’s work) will be waiting patiently for the Bridegroom, fully dressed up for the occasion.
For the quests (those who are relatively new and who are saved with evident of spiritual fruit; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Also doer of fellowshiping, paying tithe, doing God’s will) they too have proper wedding garment can enjoy the Wedding feasts with the King.
But for those without proper Garment, they will be bound and cast into outer darkness.

Likewise without Gift of Wisdom, you cannot receive Vision.
Vision is a Hope , a destiny revelation for all Christian.
Without Vision, a Christian will find his or her life miserably dry.
Why people committed Suicide? That is because they became hopeless when they lost something that they are hopeful for. It could be someone he or she love so much that without the person, he or she is completely hopeless. Or something tangible that they are hopeful for is being lost. They become hopeless and committed suicide. So, Christian without Vision will face the danger of Spiritual Suicide, they will lose their faith rapidly like the cursed Fig Tree.

DON’T BE LIKE A WHITEWASHED WALL CHRISTIAN, modern day Pharasee.

Happy Reading, God Bless You

Holy Spirit is like electricity in our live. We are like an electrical instrument. One can be an Electric Guitar, one can be a Coffee maker, one can be an Electric saw, without electricity being plugged in, and we are USELESS piece of equipment! In another word, you need Holy Spirit to be the main power source to your life and you will operate for the Kingdom of God in the way you are being molded for by GOD, our Lord Jesus.

Personal review of Choo Thomas’s book “Heaven is so real”

A. Weird feeling at first

When I read the first few chapters. I kind of feeling weird, cannot comprehend the way events are happening. Then I gave prayer and while in Spirit, like “Walking on the Air” I began to Visualise that Heaven is Real and revelations upon revelations kept coming into my mind.

B. Similar situation and revelations

1. The Cloud
– While young, I had a wonderful dream of a lion and Calf being formed by little clouds that came down from the sky. I felt very happy at that time playing with them and then the lion and calf, slowly disappeared. I felt very sad when I woke up. Now, after reading this book that Choo Thomas had encountered with cloud during her youthful day, it revealed that I had encounterd God without realising it. Book of revelation talk about the lion, calf, eagle and the human face. I supposely, the eagle was flying in the air at that time and the Human face is myself.

Rev 4:7 “And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.”

Which face you want to show, Gives you insight of the meaning.

2. My spouse (not saved yet) once said she dreamed of being at the seaside, she said that the seawater washed ashore was foaming with dirty blood, and she was very frightened. This book had mentioned about Jesus saying that this is his blood that cleanse our sins, that’s why it is dirty. I asked my spouse if she could remember the dream, she couldn’t remember. Well, I guess it is the revelation that my family will be saved. Praise the Lord.

3. Beginning, Choo Thomas was very careful about mentioning OBE. I too have had this experience before but I would not relate all of them here. Only this one where I was brought to The place of Sanctuary (worship Lord Jesus Christ)

4. Many times, I too was waken up at 3am to 4am to do God’s work. Most of the time I was moved to write articles and sometimes pray for someone. Not sure why it must be at this hour, maybe it is the best time as everybody is asleep and nobody can disturb or distract me.

B. Understanding why the body moment is necessarily.

In my own personal understanding. It is really a blessing to all of us that we have Sister-in-Christ who is willing to risk her life by doing the work of God, our Lord Jesus. Having done some research on OBE before. It is mentioned that people who do OBE for more than 2 mins would suffered brain damage. Based on events that was written, it is definitely necessary for the body to do the moment work. Some part of the book, she mentioned that she saw her body turn dark and many occasions, her face hit the stair. When the blood is deprived of oxygen, it turns dark and that shows on the body. And when the soul traveled out of body, the physical body stop functioning temporary. Thus, the body moment work is absolutely necessary to ensure blood circulation. Yes, people had talked about the operation of OBE to do evil, they tends to call it Sorcery. Also, books were writtened on teaching people how to do it. So, this is a very dangerous fine line between the sorcery and doing God’s work. Since the OBE is guided by Our Lord himself. It is prefectly safe. Thus, we are not encouraging believer to do OBE.

Bearing in mind that doing the WILL of GOD received blessings and everlasting eternal life.

Those who use OBE to practice sorcery, using the power of the Dark Shadow will lost their life. Moreover, it is known fact that The EVIL one takes away number of years off a person’s life for every task that is done, some even sold their soul to him.

The Whitewashed wall

Acts 23:3 “God will strike you, you whitewashed wall! For you sit to judge me according to the law, and do you command me to be struck contrary to the law?”

Acts 23:8-9 “For Sadducees say that there is no resurrection – and no angel or spirit; but the Pharisees confess both. Then there arose a loud outcry. And the scribes of the Pharisees’ party arose and protested, saying, “We find no evil in this man; but if a spirit or an angel has spoken to him, let us not fight against God.”

Someone wants to know “a Vision of whitewashed wall.”

I did a search on Bible based on Whitewashed Wall. Whoever received a Vision must bear responsibility to ask in prayer for the full meaning of it and ask in Jesus’ name on what to do with the Vision. He must ask in prayer for more revelations and confirmations so that with the help of the Holy Spirit, he can build up a complete Vision and thus doing the Will of God, and will be blessed, those not doing or going against the Will of God will be cursed (lest they recognized their mistakes and asked for forgiveness.) God, Our Lord Jesus will rarely give a “cheap Vision” just to confirm where you’re going. If it is comprise of the confirmation of a place, there has to be instructions or tasking for meaningful fulfillment of the THE VISION trip. A Vision given is a hope, a , revelations of a situation that needed to be rectified or an assignment or mission needed to be completed at once or in stages. How do we receive further revelations and confirmations of a Vision to have a complete picture? One man’s Vision is another man’s illusion. Click this link for answer.

Would God, Our Lord Jesus give irresponsible Christian anymore Vision? Would God, Our Lord Jesus give further revelations and confirmations to Christian who are spiritually blind and deaf and indirectly refused healing when being told? These Christian will be like the Pharisees, doing his own will according to his own believe! With the help of the Holy Spirit, I had written an article on Two Nakedness mentioned in Bible. Click this link.

This article talks about how these AC Christian (Academic Christian) enclothed themselves with Garment thinking that they had done God’s will but had not.
Also read this article for more meaning of AC and DC Christian. The Magician. Click this link

This depicts how these Academic Christian whose mind is like A.C. current. They can’t do God’s will. They are of two minds, reciprocating all the while. Easily influence by other people or surrounding situation. They can’t do the will of God, as they can’t receive direct instruction from God, Our Lord Jesus. They are Ambivalence and worse off, tends to procrastinate on a lot of things because they aren’t sure of what to do and just leave things as it is and pretending that it wasn’t not there, dare not face the truth. They lust for authority, full of pride. Turning to the right or left, they only think of CONTROLING people. There is no element of LOVE nor CONCERN for people. They are arrogant, easily angered and hold grudges against people who pointed out mistakes to them. They think they are very forgiving but aren’t. Preached but never put to practice what they preached. Worst off at times preached things contrary to Church’s sermon.

That’s why Paul said in Acts 28:25 – 27

So when they did not agree among themselves, they departed after Paul had said one word: “The Holy Spirit spoke rightly through Isaiah the prophet to our fathers, “saying, Go to this people and say “Hearing you will hear, and shall not understand; And seeing you will see, and not perceive; For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Theirs ears are hard of hearing, and their eyes they have closed. Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, SO that I should heal them.”

Acts 23:3 “whitewashed wall” Have anyone seen the Great Wall of China? It is one of the world’s wonder and it can even be seen from the Moon. What about the wall for Berlin? It is being torn down. Praise the Lord for the Grace and glory. The wall are meant to separate people, in other words creates division between people from one side of the wall and the other side of the wall. Thus, those outside the wall cannot get in and those within inside cannot get out unless there are doors opened to them. The symbolic meaning of the Wall represents rules or laws that prevent Christian from doing certain things or command them to do certain things.
Jesus had said very clearly, Matt 5:17 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.”
All reborn believer knew that the first commandment from Christ is to Spread the Gospel. And yet these Christian are creating walls that create divisions and preventing faithful Christian from reaching out to others. The “whitewashed wall” is like a page from book without writing. Unwritten laws were set and they like to pass judgment onto the individual and penalized them according to their “Invisible Law”. They hypocritically preached, “Let there be No wall or divisions amongst ourselves” But they don’t practice what they preached. They are not fast enough to feed the younger Christians with nourished bread to help them grow faster and yet they create these “whitewashed wall” to prevent others from reaching them. They like to judge others and pass judgment. They are spiritually blind and deaf. While these little one who are pure in their heart had their spiritual eyes and ears healed by the Lord, pointed out their mistakes and shortfall, and yet instead of repenting or rectification, they penalized the little one. I have got news for them. God, Our Lord Jesus chose to speak to those who are like little child and even to people whom they dislike most. This should be THE TEST for their faith. They see this as insubordination to their authority just because they felt that they had broken their unwritten rules “The Whitewashed wall”. Also they like to distance themselves, very concern with their image, as they don’t want to get “Too Familiar” with their subordinates. While they hypocritically preached “Fellowship is important. Let no wall separates us and all must serve one another as servant like Jesus had washed the feet of his disciples.”
I was told that the person had been advised by member to write down in black and white for those unknown rules and regulation, so that people cannot deny breaking them. But the advice wasn’t heeded, instead, giving his own reasoning such as he don’t want to be too rigid on rules, don’t want to treat everyone like children. Well, we could only pray for this “whitewashed wall” He can’t pass judgment onto anyone breaking “His Rules” because it is not make known and it is not in accordance with the Bible teaching. Maybe the reason for not putting in black and white is that he can conveniently change the rules anytime he like to FIT HIS RIGHTs, thus abusing of Authority accorded to him. This is the case of SILLY practice, where subordinates don’t know what regulations to follow and yet being punished for what they do not know. Even our Lord Jesus had commanded that Vision that is to be make known to people must be written in plain language so that everyone can read and understand.
Hab 2:2 “And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.”
Trumpet had sounded. The “whitewashed wall” also like to preached about how to Cupped the hands and offered our sins for forgiveness in Prayer. But God, Our Lord Jesus had shown that this person teaches people how to cupped their hands, but he himself can’t even form a perfect cupping of hand. Lord Jesus told me that when he poured sands onto his cupped hand, it leaks and he can’t hold much grain of sand because it had many holes at the bottom. Thus, Lord Jesus will not be pouring Sands onto Leaking cupped hands, anymore! Immediately, I understood and related to a message in Bible, It is like a cursed fig tree now.

Matt 21:19: “And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away”.
The heart of these people is starting to be surrounded by darkness. Since God, Our Lord Jesus is not answering their prayer, chances is that they may find an easy way out that is, getting results from the dark Shadow. I was told someone mentioned in prayer that she saw a shadow passed by. The person mentioned that the shadow is GOD and we should open our door wide for him to enter.”. That is the evident of “the weed” in the Courtyard. God will NEVER come in shadow! God come in Glorious Light and Brightness! We really have to pray for these group of people and grieve for them.
That’s why Paul said in Acts 28:25 – 27
“Hearing you will hear, and shall not understand; And seeing you will see, and not perceive; For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Theirs ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed.”
Another law of Christ, they don’t diligently follow is this
Ga 6:2 “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
I had heard Joyce Mayer’s audio on one part where she said, she once walked over a penny coin and Lord Jesus asked her to pick it up. From there, in spirit, she understands the significant meaning of it. She said we should humble ourselves, doing little insignificant things for one another, just like the penny, it is so insignificant. And people will really appreciate of those little things you do for them and you will be blessed. So, my sincere hope is that all Cell Group shall operate like a Customer Service Center where every member is being treated with respect like customers and we will provide the best service for them. All rules should be written in black and white and fully explained. The blessed connection or links (new or reborn Christian) brought by the person shall continue and be unbroken and shall improve in the faith of LOVE rather then throwing to “The System” and become COLD. It shall be an open concept, where there is no wall between the members and everyone enjoy and know the important of Servant hood. God, Our Lord Jesus had said that he did not come to this world to be served but to serves.

Mark 10:45 “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”
Sometime we do come across people who may turn down your offer to help because they may said that they don’t like to owe people favor. Of course, individual has the right to accept or reject another person’s help. Based on this, it is a self-centered thought, or perhaps there is certain preference of choices of people whom can help them, this too come under the category of self-center ness. Some maybe have too much PRIDE in them, because they have this ground to earth thought that they are in higher level or position, so they don’t need other people’s help. Or maybe they are too worried or fearful that other people may mess up instead of helping. For such case, we just have to put aside all the negativity and pray in faith that everything will be under God’s hand; the worried and fears will be removed. Surely by God’s grace, Lord Jesus may speak or sent an Angel to instruct someone to help another person and the person being in spirit; obeyed and went forth to offers help. But those “Self-Centred” will reject offers to help because they do not have God’s grace to receive them, and is like indirectly asking the helpers to disobey God’s instruction. It is a tragedy, isn’t it?
The law of Christ in Ga 6:2 “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Why should God, Our Lord Jesus want to have this Law? Why not ease or remove the other person’s burden so that they don’t have to rely on others? Daily encounter with My Partner, The Holy Spirit had helped me to understand the purpose. The purpose is for us to have fellowship with one another and also to appreciate one another’s help so that the bond gets stronger and the wearied and weaken get stronger. This also helped to us foster closer teamwork as being part of the complete Body of Christ. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

9 Gifts Of The Holy Spirit by Rev. Richard Roberts 2 Apr 2006

Chapter 1 – Revelation Gift

This is Transcript from Audio Sermon by Richard Roberts (Guest Speaker) for City Harvest Church. We try our best to accurately record down whatever that is spoken. Certain message has been left out.

Based on 1Cor 12:3-13
Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.”

There has been much confusion over the Spiritual Gifts concerning the holy spiritual. Today we’ll talk about the 9 Spiritual Gifts of the Holy Spirit. As a matter of fact, I knew 7 of the Spiritual Gifts had operated in me. However these Spiritual Gifts may had already operated in you and you are not aware of it. The Gifts don’t have to be operated one at time. Sometimes, multiple Gifts can operate together at the same time. Last night Gift of Knowledge came to me and 3 who are deaf are being healed, this morning the same is going to be happened. Some people said to me that I have spiritual gifts. No, that is not correct! We have to be get this terminology correct, Spiritual Gifts belongs to God, it don’t belong to Man. It is the Holy Spirit who have the Spiritual gifts that operated in me. There are 3 categories of the Spiritual Gifts, THE REVELATION GIFT, THE POWER GIFT AND VOCAL GIFT, now we start with Revelation Gift, go to Chapter 2 for Power Gift and Chapter 3 for Vocal Gift.

1. Words of Wisdom

Have you come across where at certain situation, you don’t know what to say or do? Then what of sudden, out of nowhere, you said or do something that solved the problem. You said to yourself “Wow, where did that come from?” Human intelligent could not apprehend the situation and is not aware that it came from the word of Wisdom from the Holy Spirit.
Elijah fed by the ravens
1King 17:2-7 “And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook. And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.”

This provision of food brought by ravens is supernatural. Then Elijah, the prophet went on to met the Widow.

Elijah and the widow of Zarephath 1King 17:8-16 “And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand. And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die. And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth. And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.
The word of Wisdom operated through Elijah, even though he knew that she and her son is going to die by consuming the food, he still ask for it. Then what happened next is that the flour was not used up nor did the jar of oil run dries. And she can prepare thousands of meal, all because she is willing to listen and obey Elijah.

Last time when my Father went to India for his ministry. He is 88 yrs old now. One of the Church member’s son had died. And this pastor said that he don’t believe in Healing. But the father trust the son to him and he becomes alive after prayer. Then the pastor wondered if he is doing the right thing. Then quick as a flash, word of wisdom came to my father and he said why don’t you ask the child whether you are doing the right thing?
Another example is in John Chapter 8, you all know the story of a woman caught in adultery. John 8:3: And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, John 8:4-11 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
The Word of Wisdom came to Jesus “He that is without sin among you, let hime first cast a stone at her.” This word of wisdom set the Woman free, when Jesus said that he “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”

2. A word of knowledge

A word of knowledge is supernatural information that is not available to human mind about certain condition of a situation.

2 King Chapter 6 2nd King has the best example of the word of knowledge. Well, you said that is old testament. Yes, that is true but it is the same Holy Spirit who has been active not just in new testament day but also in Old testament days. Let me said a strong word today for a man who has been administrating for the past 30 over years. There are many people around the world today who would said that they don’t need Old testament anymore. That is a lie. No one has cut the old testament out of the Bible. Well, there are people who say that new testament came to replace the old testament and that is not true eitheir. New testament as a matter of fact came to fulfill the old testament. Are you all getting into the spirit this morning? Because there are grievous wolf who will come and they are around now. They are around now in this part of the world and also on my part of the world. They would say grievous thing that will discourage the elate and persuaded that what they believe is not true because they are trying to take the blood of Jesus away. You know as I pray today, I talked about the blood of Jesus. There are many denominations that are taking out the mention of the blood of Jesus because they don’t want the people to be offended. But I’ve got news for you, without the shedding of blood of Jesus, there will be no redemption. Without the shed blood of Jesus, you will not be Christian. Thank God for the shed blood of Jesus. Don’t allow any false prophet speak into your life. Don’t walk away from them. Run away from them. We as a Christian must stand up for the Bible.
Lift up your Bible and say
“This is my Bible.
I am what it say I am.
I have what it say I have.
I can do what it say I can do.
From Genesis to Revelation, every word is inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Now everyone give a shout for the Lord. Wow”

2King 6:10-12 And the king of Israel sent to the place which the man of God told him and warned him of, and saved himself there, not once nor twice. Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was sore troubled for this thing; and he called his servants, and said unto them, Will ye not shew me which of us is for the king of Israel? And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber.”

Every battle plan of Syria is being make known to Elisha. And the Syria King was very angry and he thought that there is spy within his camp.

John 4:7-19 “There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink. (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water. The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water? Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly. The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.”
Thus the word of knowledge was given to Jesus when he told the Samaria woman that she have 5 husbands and the one that she currently have is not her husband. Samaria woman is half-breed during that time, there is racial barrier. The Jews look down on Samaria and yet Jesus asked water from her and tell her that if she had known him, she would have asked water from him because whoever drink the water from him will never thirst again and shall have everlasting life. There is so many Racial barrier in our modern day but yet, Our Lord Jesus had already broken that barrier long time ago when he talk to Samaria woman. Immediately, she proclaim that Jesus is the Prophet.

While preaching in Africa. I received a phone call from President of Zambia, he invited me to his country. I met him at the Palace and since he is a Christian, we all bend down our knee and pray. The President invited me to Hold a National Healing crusade. I was very thrill when God give a word of knowledge which I didn’t understand and don’t want to receive. Tell the president’s wife that she had stomach condition which God want to heal. Are you sure God, I just got invited for National Healing crusade, I don’t want to jeopardized my invitation to the National Healing Crusade. What if whatever I said is not correct? I asked God if he really want me to tell this to President’s wife. Sometime we don’t understand the word of knowledge given to us and we just have to obey the Holy Spirit. So I told her and she was completely amazed with tears in her eyes that how is it possible that she had stomach condition for 3 years, and been hospitalized, had surgery and just won’t heal the stomach problem, and how is it that I knew her condition. That day I prayed for her and she was immediately cured. Now, that is the operation of the word of knowledge.

3. Discerning Spirits

Now, what I said is discerning spirits. Not discerning of faults. Have you come across people who likes to point out other people’s faults? What I am talking about is the discerning of spirits. Have you ever experience when you stepped into a room, suddenly the room felt cold or when you shake hand with someone and just want to let go the hand as soon as possible because you felt something is wrong with this person? Now, that is the operation of the discerning of spirits.

Acts 16:13-18 “And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither. And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshiped God, heard us: And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us. And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.

Paul been passing the place many times and this woman been said “These man are the servants of the Most high God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation” She did it for many day until Paul was greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour.”
There is a man speaking false tongue barking like a dog. His mouth is foaming. Then I commanded in Jesus name to the spirit to come out. Immediately, the bad spirit left the man and fell back. Then when he comes around, he ask for altar call. Then, I said to Lord Jesus that I had not conduct my preaching yet, how could I do altar call. But the Holy Spirit within me asked me to do altar call. So I did, on that day a thousand people received salvation. They responded because they see the spirit come out of the man.

Now that is the operation of the discerning of spirit. And that will happened to believer and when that happened you have to ask God what you trying to say to me and what you want me to do about it? And I can assure you that God will show you how to deal with the situation.

 Chapter 2 – Power Gift

1. Gifts of Healing

There are various types of Gifts Healing
Laying of Hands
Anointing of oil
Using of Prayer Cross
Good work for Healing of lord

Acts 19:11- 12 And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul. So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.
Acts 3:3 -12 Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God: And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him. And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering. And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?

I remembered during a healing session, a man had back problem for 25 years. And I laid my hand on him and I felt the spirit come on him. But I knew he was sick for a long time, it would be difficult for him to do what I said. Because when you got sick, sickness seems to pull you down. And it is hard for the man to pull himself up. That’s why Peter and John lifted the man up. And then I said to the man to bend over but he said he cannot, that’s why he came for prayer. Then I told him would you stop saying you cannot bend over and start somewhere. Healing , sometimes is not instantaneous, it takes over a period of time. So he bend over a few times, a big smile come to his face. Healing is a process and each time it get better and better. Those are the operation of the Gifts of healing.
I was telling pastors about the story. I must tell you the story because I am going to Taiwan soon, to tell the same story. Many years ago when Taiwan was known as Formosa, sometime in 1950, Chan Kai Shek was the leader of the country at that time, I am sure this will ring the bell to many of you. And they are having a crusade in the indoor stadium, my father method was always laying on hands, God manifested the word of knowledge to me but use his hand and still does and there were not many Miracles happening, and the government had put a ring of soldiers around to protect the crusade and crowd and not many miracle happened. So my father kept asking why. The minister said to my father that Chinese do not like to be touched. Then a woman came with a large growth at the neck as big as a man’s fist, my father give it a touch and it instantly disappear right in front of their eyes. It changed everything, You want to know who is next in line for prayer? All the two hundred soldiers. Because they saw the miracle of the operation of the Gifts of healing. Last night, I have people turn and face each other and I reminded them that it is written in the bible scripture mentioned that they shall lay hand on the sick and they shall recover, that is the operation of the Gift of healing.

2. Working of Miracles

Working of miracle is supernatural intervention by the Holy Spirit to change or alter a situation. Look at Moses in the book of Exodus, bringing ten plaques on the Egyptians, look at Joshua in Chapter 10 when Israel is loosing the Battle and they need more daylight and Joshua spoke to the Sun and commanded it to stay still and it did, that was the working of the miracles.
I’ll tell you the modern day working of miracles. It is this church. You start working with 20 people and now 20,000 without the working of Miracles this won’t happened. Talk about the working of the Miracle, you have seen it this morning, and it is growing and growing and why? Singapore is strategically and Geographically located in the right place to be a door opener to Asia. And God is going to use you, he is going to use this Church because time is running short. There is a great evangelism of the soul that is coming to the Kingdom and this church is right where it already is, right in the middle of the Asia. That’s why God had manifested in this man and through those who gathers around him because in the natural, you can’t start with 20 people and now you have 20,000. It doesn’t happen except by the working of the Miracles, Let’s give the Praise to the Lord by clapping.

3. Gift of faith

The Gift is something supernatural that takes over when your faith has run its course. When you seems not to be able to believe anymore, God will switch in the operation of Gift of faith so that you can believe. Like a supercharger of a racer car or the afterburner of a fighter jet. When the supercharger or afterburner kicks in, a magnificent increase in speed. It is the same with the Gift of Faith. How many of you had faced the same situation where your faith seemingly cannot believe anymore and suddenly a surge come into your heart and you said Oh yes I can believe this, Oh yes, it can happen, Oh yes it will happen. I didn’t believe that it will happen but now I know that it will happen. After that you wonder where did that came from? That is from the Holy Spirit.
One example is Abraham, when he takes his own son Isaac in the book of Genesis, where he tie him up and wanted to kill him. You can imagine what would your faith be if God were to tell you to kill your first born, and you can imagine what Abraham would have felt. A Gift of faith begins to manifest in him as he said when he got to the mountain because he said, “We are going up and we are coming down.” In the Human situation he would have said “We are going up and I am coming down.” That is the operation of the Gift of Faith. When the manifestation of the Gift of faith is in the live of a Christian, it is dangerous to the Devil who is sitting here this morning. You came here not to have a pad on your shoulder but you came here for the manifestation of the word of God. There is hell out in the street and in this country and God had raised you up at this moment, at this hour and at this time. God will deliver the Gift of faith to his believer in his timing, not yours. I have told God when to do it, I have told God how to do it, I have told God where to do it, I have told God who to do it too and he has never do it the way I want it done. He does it his way. His way is the Best. God’s way is better than your way.

 Chapter 3 – Vocal Gift

1. Gift of Prophecy

The Gift of Prophecy is hearing what God is saying and deliver it. Prophecy points the way, Prophecy gives direction, for edification and comfort. It literally points the way. 1977 a word of Prophecy come me that I will be in the Healing ministry. No one knew that I would have dream of the Healing ministiry. No one knew that I will be in the healing ministry. I have not told anyone and the word of prophecy has to come from a woman whom I didn’t like. I had to apologized to God and I had to apologized to her. A woman is prophesying that God is going to use me in the healing ministry. She said that God will manifest a word of knowledge to you. I didn’t know what the word of knowledge means. But God did and God had told her and she told me. And every word that she prophesied came to pass in my life. This is a pathetic Church because God is speaking to you a direction for Asia. Every week when you gather together, God is giving you new information, new direction, he is giving you new battle plan, a new outlook on this side of the world. And then to spring forward to other nation after that. It is pathetic church, a pathetic work. Why? Because we’re living in the last days. God is wrapping this age up. Some of us maybe well be alive when the rapture of the church occurs. And my friend, I believe in the rapture of the church. I know there are those who don’t believe it but I believe in what the Bible said. I’ll stick my life on the Bible, the bible said there will be a glorious appearance, the Church will be rapture and the dead in Christ will raise first. We said how is he going to handle that? To those who has been buried , those who has been cremated and those who had their body done with all sort of things that we have to build something else and how is he going to handle that? Well, I’ve got news for you, he is God and he can do whatever he wants. I’ve got news for you, write this down. This is worth the entire trip to church this morning. Write this down, it is very important. If you had missed everything that I had said don’t miss this, this is the most important. Are you ready to write it down? Here it is. GOD IS IN CHARGE AND I AM NOT! write it down. When God said jump, you and I have to say hi hi all the way up. He is in charge, this is his Church. We are simply a steward in it. Yes I am a President of a major university with over 5,000 students and it is credited on every level. Yes, I am a cheap Executive Officer. Yes I have power. But it is not my University, it is God’s University. I am just a cheap steward. I am just the local pastor of that University. God is in charge, he makes the agenda, he sets the battle plan and he tells me what to do. And I say, Yes Sir, I’ll do it. Don’t you ever messed. Yes, I messed up all the time because I am a human being, I make mistakes. I am glad the newspaper didn’t know anything about me that I know. Have ever make a mistake put you your hand up, Have you ever make more than two mistake put up both hand. Don’t worry, I am not going to ask you to put up both legs. We’re human being, we make mistakes. But the Bible said, we have this treasure in this earthen vessel. And God works through people. Short, tall, thin, fat, good looking, not so good looking. God works through people. He loves people, he gives his son to die for people for the lost.

2. Gift of tongue and 3. Interpretation of tongue

This will help you to help Christian who do not have the daily life of dealing with the Holy Spirit. They love the Lord, they gave their life to Christ but they are not what we call Charismatic. I am not trying to be critical this morning but I am trying to help you. I am giving this message to you this morning and all the minister all over the world that God prophesied over me that I will be the bridge builder between denominational group who believe in the Holy Spirit activity and others who do not believe and yet they still love God. God is using me as an eye opener for them.
Now we shall deal with Gift of tongue and interpretation of tongue. This two must be deal with togther because when one manifested in you, the other will too. The Gift of tongue and interpretation of tongue is sovereign. It is different from your daily devotional prayer language. Right in the middle of prayer and worship, the musicians stopped pray out aloud in tongue and all of Pastor Kong stewards and all stewards began to pray in tongue. Every born again believer has the right to pray in tongue. Why ? Because when you’ve got saved, the Holy Spirit came in, the bible said and borne witness with your spirit that you are born again. Every born again believer has the Gift of tongue, you cannot get saved without the Holy Spirit. So when the believe get saved, the Holy Spirit comes into your heart and every born again believer has the right to pray in tongue. That is NOT the Gift of tongue and Interpretation of tongue. What we did this morning is to pray congressionally in tongue.

Roman 8:26 – 27 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
We can all pray in tongue at will. And we can pray in tongue then in English and the Devil has no Idea of what is being prayed.
I remembered I prayed for a man who was in a coma, there were tubes and wires running in and out of his body, his family grab on me like I was a life preserver in the pacific ocean. There is the man, and I didn’t know what to do. I look at him and start to pray in tongue, then I stopped and then when I prayed in English, and as I prayed in English God showed me where I was to lay my hand on him and how I was to pray and say in english. When I pray in english God gives me direction, he awaken and was no longer in coma. That was the benefit in praying in tongue. I did not pray in tongue because I can pray better than anyone else. I prayed in tongue because I need help. I don’t know what to pray for as I always asked. Paul told us that “Out of my Valley, Jesus say shall flow river of living water. He was speaking of the Holy Spirit and every born again believer has the right to pray in tongue and that is not the operation of the Gift of tongue. That is just a devotional daily prayer. Did you received something from the Lord. You’ll find that from time to time, God will manifest different gifts to you. It may seem strange and unusual to you. Here is what you’ll do, ask “What are you trying to show me and what do you want me to do in Jesus name.” I enjoyed teaching of the Gifts of the Spirit. I was raised to be rebellious. Not to be offer attention, not to be offer some different kind of doctrine that separate from the Bible. And that is what you want to be. You don’t want to be impressed by separate doctrine. I know there are those who live on the edge all the time. I don’t want to be on the edge, I want to be right down in the middle. Before I pray for you, I want to tell you a story and I think it is appropriate.
Back in 1800, Well Fargo was looking for drivers for their state coach. They have to drive above 12,000 ft to reach another states. And the drivers brat to each other, saying how close they can get to the edge of the road. One young man wanted to withdraw his application. And being asked why, he said he want to drive only on the middle. He don’t want to risk his life at the edge. Then Well Fargo man hired him saying that this is the type of driver he want. Many lives were lost because people are driving to the edge. So the message is “Don’t live at the Edge of your life!” But walk in the middle where God is in control. Now all just pray, Praise the LORD, Hellelujah !

The Journey to Kingdom of Heaven

To some the Journey to Kingdom of Heaven is long.
To some the Journey to Kingdom of Heaven is Short but difficult.
Blessed are those who have the mindset to know that the journey is short and he shall not Procrastinate on doing the Will of God, Our Lord Jesus, because he who is in union with the message of the Holy Spirit would know that the Second Coming Christ is not Far away.

Rev. Dr Kim Sunghae spoke about the Journey. And we really love her assuring words. She said that the Hardship is short and temporary. You need to be mindful of the distance, time and cost. When we arrived at the destination, it is like on Top of the Mountain, we can smell fresh air, nice scenery.
The world we live is fantastic, modern technology, shops but it is not for Eternality. You need to purchase ticket to take train to go to places, but to go to Kingdom of Heaven you need to have the ticket too. And this eternal ticket, you can’t buy with money or benefits. It is only provided by Lord Jesus through his forgiveness by sacrificing his life on the Cross and shed the blood to cleanse our sin. We must know the destination God had planned for each and everyone of us.
You must be equipped with Armour of God for this journey.
Eph 6:13-20 “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints -“
Do not be discouraged as you embarked on this difficult journey. For it is stated in

Roman 8:37 “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors though Him who loved us.” We must not be afraid of problems, be brave to face them as God, our Lord Jesus is always with you and protect you. Be a conqueror to these problems and it will help to make you stronger. “
Roman 8:28 “For He will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness.”

Open your mouth BIG and ask Lord Jesus for help and he will turn things around for you to enjoy a Happy Journey. As stated in Bible:-
Matt 7:8 “For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
Matt 7:9 “Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?”
Matt 7:10 “Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?”
Sixty years ago, I prayed in the Tent Church with holes on its roof. You know what it is like when it rains. We have to put water buckets everywhere to contain the rainwater. We have only 5 members compared to City Harvest who started with 20 members. Today we have 750,000 members, Praise the Lord! Hallelujah! The sound of raindrops hitting the bucket of water is like nice rhythm of worshipping God. So I started prayer from 4.30am and then go to school. I have the Dream and Vision to become a teacher. But at that time, I suffered from tuberculosis. Seen doctors but medicine couldn’t cure me. But I prayed to God, Our Lord Jesus. Within 2 years I am completely cured of this disease. Sometimes we are “Walking in the Air” and the huge storm threatened to devour us but Jesus is always in the midst of the storm to help us. Hallelujah! I have been to many Universities but I am not qualified and also have got no confident. I prayed to God, our Lord Jesus and a voice spoken within me “You are worried and fearful because you are trying to do things by yourself!”
Trusting our Lord Jesus, I prayed and he takes my burden and fear away. I succeeded Sometimes, we have problems in the Church. There are certain disagreements in decisions. So I arrange for everyone to have good time together, go to a place to have Good meal together, fellowship together. Like Jesus having fellowship with disciples having good meal together. So when the good food filled the stomach, everyone is happy and everything is okay in agreement. We must learn how to forgive each other with God’s Love. And along the journey, don’t forget to greet and welcome all the other people in the journey. If you see them carrying heavy burden, offer them your help for it is mentioned in the Bible:-
Gal 6:2 “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”

19/4/08 – Theme of the Message was “The short journey to Kingdom of Heaven.

20/4/08 – The four power of Holy Spirit.

After the service, I shared with a Brother about the different between Preaching of Biblical Message during yesteryear as compared to today. Twenty years back then, was Evangelism by Billy Graham. Those days, more emphasis was on the teaching of Christianity doctrine. While today, more is emphasized on the important of Holy Spirit, Our Helper, and stronger prayer to GOD, Our Lord Jesus. The conversation somehow cut short, as he is usually very busy.

**ADDED NOTES 05/05/08

What did Billy Graham preach more than thirty years ago, I think 1978. I had totally forgotten what was preached. But I really Praise God, Our Lord Jesus for The Holy Spirit helping me record accurately. Sunday Service, 04/05/08 received a copy of Harvest Times, Issue 34 Pg 26 2nd last Para, “Billy Graham came to me and said, Dr. Cho, I really appreciated that message on the Holy Spirit. In my preaching, I should stress more about the importance of the person of Holy Spirit. I have been praying in my daily life, but I have never set aside a definite hour to pray. Now I am going to make definite time to pray.”

27/4/08 – Service by Our Pastor Kong Hee

Prior to the start of Service, I was sharing with 2 of my Brother in Christ. I asked them if they had pondered upon Why Rev. Dr Kim Sunghae said that the JOURNEY TO KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS A SHORT JOURNEY? Well, both of them shaked their head to acknowledge that they do not think of it.

I answered them. Remember Our Pastor Tan teaching of 2 big words?

Service on 30/03/08

Ambivalence – Simultaneous contradictory attitudes or feelings

Bible reference James 4:17 “Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.

Psalm 119:113 “I hate the double-minded, But I love you?re law.

People with 2 minds is not capable of doing God’s work

Procrastination – Maybe do it tomorrow.

So I said to my two brothers. If we perceived that Journey to Kingdom of Heaven is long, then we will procrastinate on a lot of things, especially doing the will of God, Our Lord Jesus. We should have correct mindset to think that Journey to Kingdom of Heaven is Short. We don’t have much time. By knowing the urgently due to lack of time, we will then do many things that God, our Lord Jesus wants us to do. As a matter of fact, the second coming of Christ is near. See many events happening. Now we even have a Person claiming to replaced Jesus, calling himself building the New Kingdom of God. But I inform my 2 brothers that, this person is not the one, the Bible talked about. I had examined his message, claiming to be Instruction from God. My discernment tells me that message was simply converted from Bible passage and yet so many people can believe in him. Rest assured that his Nakedness of Shame will be revealed soon and he will run away with the money. In fact it is a BIG harvest field but laborers are few unfortunately. Then the Sunday Service started, Pastor Kong Hee preached about Prayer and the second reason for Prayer in Tongue “Praise”, he said that he went to Philiphines and one of the native there said that he spoke fluently in their language unknowingly. He was saying ” The Second coming of Christ is near” My personal revelation is this “Only those who have the Holy Spirit, Wisdom with discernment can differential the One that will come before the Second coming of Christ.” Practice Faith Now; let the Holy Spirit take full control!

Now, Brothers and Sisters, that was the same message I said before the Church service start, and in fact last week I would have shared with brother about this Revelation of Second coming of Christ. Praised the Lord, Jesus. Hallelujah !!! I really thank him for sending the Holy Spirit, The Helper unto me, so that I can be messenger for God. In fact, we are all Messenger for God, Our Lord Jesus. The day we accepted Christ as our Savior. We received our 1st commandment, which is to spread the Gospel. Many tend to procrastinate on the spreading of Gospel. Unfortunate, some are being advised not to do it because senior Christian thinks that they are still young in Christ. This is definitely, not in accordance with commandment. I personally advised my 2 new Christians that though they might not have attended Bible Class. They can always tell people this “My life is now more meaningful, I attended regular Cell Group meeting every Friday like extended family, learning new things and also every Sunday Morning attend Church Service.” I advice them to invite friends to Sunday Service if they want to know more about Salvation. So there is no need to quote Bible Phrase?

If really must share Bible Script then can use this: –

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

If the friends want to know more, just invite them to the Sunday Service where Pastor and senior Christian can teach more in-depth knowledge. And yet, we have people worry that they can’t spread the Gospel. Preventing them from doing God’s work. Worry or fears don’t come from God.

Praise our Lord Jesus, I really felt very Blessed with this union of Holy Message. Then, Pastor Kong Hee also mentioned exact word by word of something, which I wrote on 18th December 2007. http://www.esharingportal.com/eshare/viewstory.php?sid=20 “Plant your Vision in your Mind, so that your heart and Soul can works towards achieving it”

by Stanley 18th Dec 2007″ This is in relation to the 5th reason for speaking in tongue, REVELATION

Here is the Sunday Sermon.

THE IMPORTANT OF PRAYER.

Pastor Kong Hee talked about Rev. Dr Kim Sunghae’s sharing of how prayer had helped her in the early days and today, the biggest church in the world with 750,000 member contributing 4% of Whole Korean’s GDP.

The Sermon: –

Book of 1 Chronicles 4:19

Two names mentioned, Jabez and David. Jabez’s prayer: –

1. Blessing from God.

2. Enlarge his Territory.

3. Hand of God.

4. God to keep him from Evil.

God answered his Prayer.

Mark 16: 15 “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”

When we prayed in tongue, at least that is the confirmation of Holy Spirit dwelling in us. Here are the 5 reasons for Prayer in tongue: –

1. Edification – 1 Cor 14:4 , Charging up to connect to God

2. Praise God – Acts 2:11 “Went to Philiphine, the Native said that he spoke their Language fluently, Praising about the Second Coming of Christ.”

3. Intercession – Rom 8:20 , Holy Spirit connect us to God.

4. Spiritual Warfare – Eph 6:18, Full Armour of God.

**5. Revelations – 1 Cor 14:15 Most Important ACTs 2:1-4, 16.

Mentions about getting Visions, received Revelations. Encourage Individual to plant their Vision in their mind so that their Heart and Soul will work towards achieving it.

** This part of the message union with what I wrote on 18th Dec 2007. Not only that you need to have Revelations upon revelations and confirmations upon confirmations because Vision are not complete till more revelation comes along.

PERFECT NUMBER MATCH, IS IT FROM GOD?


PERFECT NUMBER MATCH, IS IT FROM GOD?
(Revelations from Our Lord 11/02/08 5.30am)

While in prayer, I have this revelation “Don’t be deceived by perfect number match!”
As I Probe further for the exact meaning, answers start sprouting out within me

The Satan will try to lure the Children of God away by temptation of winning lottery.
“Come, come, I gave you perfect number match, 4D number you can buy to get rich”
Some may think that this is a one time opportunity, only one time sin.
But unfortunately, the indulgence in this sin is opening oneself to gain more greed.
Greed, don’t come from God, it is from Satan, bringing downfall of man to the shadow of darkness.
As the fallen individual may have won lottery, he would want more, worshipping the Devil even more
The light in the the person is being extinguished in no time, walking the path of darkness.

I am glad and grateful to our Lord Jesus for his Salvation, that HE helped me passed the test
Wednesday, 20th Feb 2008. A colleague called me in the middle of night to said my Station number won lottery.
But I have absolutely no feeling of regreting not participating in this lottery greed
Praise the Lord for having cleansed my Soul and Mind, I have no greed for such materialistic gain.

As I ponder further in my prayer, the other number match that the Devil is good at deceiving is remuneration.
“Come, come, this is what you Prayed for, I can provide you the pay that you asked for”
Beware, brothers and sisters. God, our Lord Jesus always provide more than what you asked for, especially remuneration
Number matching in remuneration is like the matching of 4D. The Satan is a good deceitor, a liar.
So brothers and sisters, don’t be fooled by this temptation of Number match claiming to be from God
God, our Lord love His Children, He will provides more than what you asked for in prayer.
Of course, some of us may not be convinced of what is being writtened here, you can ask yourself some questions

Q1. When did you first come into contact with the matching number?
Q2. Does the matching number come to you when you were emotionally down, envy, jealous, greed or vengence?
Q3. Does this job switch stop you from continuing God’s work in current workplace?
Q4. Does this new job brings you away from being with God, worshipping Him?
Q5. Does this new job requires you to do more immorality?
Q6. Does this new job help you to be more smooth flow in your spiritual life routine?

If you can answer Q1, you can find out the root cause of problem.
Any of the human decision in Q2 is at risk because the Devil is able to attack the weakness of the individual.
Obviously, Q3, stopping God’s work is forbidden. God, our Lord is not being Edified. His work has to be continued.
If yes to Q4, obviously, the evil one is bringing you further away from God, our Lord Jesus. Otherwise if the new job gives you more time to worship God, then it is alright.
If yes to Q5, Obviously committing sins is not pleasing to the eyes of God, Our Lord Jesus
If there is disruptions, many obstacles, your prayer to ease this burden is not being answered, you falls sick easily, it seems that you are not protected by God, our Lord Jesus, then it is time to quit this JOB! This is Q6.
Some may argue that, these temptation, disruptions, obstacles is the test from GOD. I could only pray for Brothers and Sistes who feels this way,
I pray that whoever it is shall have the Gift of Discernment and Wisdom to help the individual make wise decision.

The following are SAFE number match from God, our Lord Jesus
Date of an Event.
Birth date of a person.
Mostly date.
Mobile, telephone number.
Building, unit number.
Other items and event that must be of definite number match.

One man’s Vision is another man’s illusion

One man’s Vision is another man’s illusion

Introduction

Vision from God, Our Lord Jesus is Sacred, DO NOT share with anyone unless the person is Spiritually connected or Right with you, who will doeth the Vision together with you. Be careful with God, Our Lord Jesus given Vision. We have great Spiritual Responsibilities!!

Pastor Kong Hee once mentioned in the sermon “Do not share your vision with anyone else because it is very personal with God unless they are meant to be part of the vision. It is given by God to you so that you can accomplished the Vision in Jesus name. The reason why you can’t share vision with other people is because they will say thing to discourage you and worst they may carry out actions to prevent you from completing the vision. Another problem is that people may steal your Vision.”
Also if the Vision is meant for more than one person to accomplish together, God, our Lord Jesus will reveal to all the choosen people and they will all agreed to whatever decision arise from the COMMON VISION.
In this writeup, we’re using the Christmas Challenge to illustrate how a Vision is being perceived and eventually emerged as a reality, though not a perfect example but lesson can be learned from here.

Chapter 1 – Shaping up a Vision Last Christmas, ie. 2007.

My work place ABN AMBRO BANK throw a Christmas challenge to all department. Immediately I had a Vision that our department will win this challenge. Yes, a tall Christmas Tree using recycle material, reaching up to touch the ceiling of our department (Insurance). With limited time, of less then 2 weeks, I really have to get permission to get it started. There was some delay in authorising the starting of this work. Perhaps at that time our management aren’t clear about the Vision or very engrossed in their planning. Then barely a week to go, our management finally authorised me to carry out the work, the Christmas Tree. Many of my colleague were completely blurred about this Vision that I am talking about. Once during the morning briefing, I told boldly in front of them “The Vision is clear we will win this Christmas Challenge. The $500 Gift Hamper will be Ours!” Everyone was so excited and clapped hand but the excitement died down so soon on the next day. I drove my car and move everything that I can find in my store. Most important item is the IKEA iron Rod that was meant for hanging of Bicycles. I couldn’t get much help from my colleagues because they could not visualise the Vision. So I must find way and means to tranfer whatever I perceived in my mind into something tangible. This is what I must do :-
1. Establish the main backbone of the Vision, set up the IKEA Rod.
2. Create the outline of the Vision. Using nylon string and Christmas cards to form the outline of the tree.
3. Add in some sample content of the Vision. Use the discarded keyboard, aluminium cans, beer bottles.
Once Physical Visualisation has been set, my colleagues started to pour in all the helps.
Although the Christmas is 75% complete due to lack of time, we still managed to WIN!! Unfinished work such as rolling used newspaper as Big Balls to fatten the Christmas Tree and adding spikes of Christmas Tree Leaves wasn’t done. LOLz.
HelleluJah! Praise the Lord!!

There is some lesson to learn from here. Only if other people had recieved the same Vision from God, our Lord Jesus, then the work can be easily carry out together, all in one mind. If not, you’ll have to identify the main backbone of the Vision to get it started. You’ll have to select the person who is able to visualised the Vision based on the backbone, if not, at least the outline of the vision. If these 2 steps has been done and yet the selected person cannot visualised, eitheir you are not good in illustrating ideas or that you have the chose the wrong person. Well, maybe your vision is too complex, you would have to fill in the content by writing so that the person or people helping you can carry out the specific instructions accordingly and complete the vision.

“Plant your Vision in your Mind, so that your heart and Soul can works towards achieving it”

End notes:

“I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.” (Acts 2:17). Would you rather have Visions or Dreams? Lateral meaning, only young man shall see Visions. Really? Old man can only dream dreams? Here is the secret to what keeps a person spiritually young. Visons are more intense with lots of God’s secrecy wisdom words and needs the young energetic spirit to run. Think of Caleb, the Vision of defeating Giants had kept him young because the Vision is full of young spirit energy and of great hope. Even at the age of 85, Caleb fought as a young lion and killed the giants. Have Vision, don’t be an old man. You maybe younger but if you have an old man spirit in you, you are not going to get any vision from God. Only those with Wisdom of God can interprete dreams and Vision, see next chapter.

Chapter 2 – Why we cannot share vision openly?

1. Vision is personal with God.

It has to be sacred in order to accomplish one’s destiny by doing God’s will. God understand and can read each and everyone mind. He is our loving father. He will give his son for things that he ask.

Matt 7:8 “For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”

Matt 7:9 “Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?”

Matt 7:10 “Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?”

Friends, more than 20 yrs ago. Without going to Bible study class nor attend any cell group. I was able to interprete symbolic Biblical meaning, wrote Poems and proverbs of revelation for the Words of God.
Also conducted Bible study for small group of people as well as individual. All glory belongs to God, our Lord Jesus. Without him, I am nothing. During those younger day, I do not know how to ask the RIGHT thing from God. But instead of given item A that I asked for, I received item B. Praise the Lord, God loves each and everyone of us like his children. He will give the best to us even though we had asked for the wrong thing!

But today, having been reborn and come back to the Kingdom of God. I doeth closer walk with our Lord Jesus with the help of Holy Spirit, the Helper. I am able to ask for the Right thing that is pleasing to God and it was given. Hallelujah! True event happened! Prayre being answered.
Case 1. 18/12/2007 I already planned for my trip. The next day (Sat) I supposed to take the flight to Surabaya and yet there are uncertainties that worried me. Cichi (she called me Papa) supposed to call me with regard to meeting up at Airport and accomodation and yet no news. Then 3 of us gathered together to pray. That was about 10.20pm. Then I went home. Next morning, I decided to look at my phone and found the SMS from Cichi (Just after 1am), saying that she will arrange her BF to pick me up at Airport and then look for accomodation, no problem. Praise God, our Lord Jesus for answering my prayer, within 4 hours. Read My Blessed trip to Surabaya.
Case 2. I asked for the address of someone in prayer so that I can buy BD gift and despatch to the recipient’s house, and my prayer was answered in a much better way. I was invited to the recipient house for dinner many days before the BD, which is better than just the answer for the address. I’ve got to know the address physically.
Case 3. I am very eager to sell away my Guillotine Paper Cutter, unfortunately I lost the Mobile Number of the reseller, which I recorded on a paper. I prayed in the morning on one Saturday, asking in Jesus Name to have the person call me. My Prayer was answer in the afternoon. The person called me, his name is Raymond. Though I did not sell to him because the price is too low. I just want to thank Lord Jesus for helping me even though it is a very small task. Praise the Lord!

So if you ask in prayer for Vision to be revealed to you, then God, our Lord Jesus will reveal to you. If it is Very personal for your goodself only. DO NOT share with anyone else but pray to God for more revelations and confirmation. REMEMBER, in prayer, ask in Jesus name on what to do with the given Vision. More revelations and confirmations will come. And you will be able to have a complete Vision to accomplished it. Share it in this Esharing Portal once your Vision has been fulfilled. In other words, sharing the blessing.

2. Normally vision is not complete.

For individual, most of the time the Vision is not completely clear. There has to be revelations upon revelations and confirmation upon confirmation to finally built up a complete Vision.

For this reason, you can’t share with anyone else because incomplete vision would leads to doubts, disbelief, hurts and worst off, killing of a Vision. Only if you had grab hold of the complete Vision, then you can focus and do the will of God, Our Lord Jesus.

Habakkuk 2:3: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Patience my friend. Sometime, Vision (partial) are given to you way ahead of time. So that you can prepare yourself for the Vision. God, our Lord Jesus wants you to pray for more revelations and confirmations. It also gives you more time to gather material and also identify people who can help you in prayer. At appointment time, it will be revealed to you completely so that you can accomplished the task.

Matt 17:9 “And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.”

Perhaps what the disciple has seen on the Mountain is the Image of Jesus being Resurrected and all of them are commanded not to tell this vision untill he has risen again from the dead?
Why? Maybe if this Secret Vision has been foretold, the prophesy may not had happened or dire consequence may occured. Or people may ridicule, make fun of and hurt the disciple. Jesus loves all his disciples, he do not want them to be in the harm way perhaps.

Luke 24:23: “And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.”

So it is from the Vision of angels, that people were being moved to believe that Jesus had resurrected. This happened because there are many people who do not believed that Jesus had indeed resurrected. And Jesus’s body wasn’t found thus proven that he had indeed resurrected. “A dead man who comes back alive can’t walk alone with his Soul only!! For HE who is indeed Alive, walked with his Body and Soul!” (this phrase by Stanley).

3. Avoid being stolen.
How many time we had seen in the Real world, ideas being stolen. Likewise, Vision can be stolen too.

Our Pastor Kong Hee, ever mentioned in his sermon that we have to be very careful with Vision given by God, Our Lord Jesus. Tell only people who are involved or are part of the Vision. If not the individual who is not right with God may steal the Vision and said that it is from him. Only when the Vision is accomplished, the individual or groups can review to the whole world.

4. Many time it is coded, so that normal people cannot understand.

Matt 13:10: “And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?”

Matt 13:13 “Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.”

This is to ensure that only true disciple of God, that is those who had acquired the Gift of Heavenly Wisdom can interprete and understand these Visions.

5. Protect the vision that is sacred from God, Our Lord Jesus. Prevent it from being spit at.

Mattew 7:6: “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and tear you in pieces.”

This is a very serious matter. Since Vision is conveyed to the individual directly from God, Our Lord Jesus. The individual must protect it from being abuse, ridicule or spit at. Reveal or share only with people who are involved in the Vision. Do not share with wrong people. Vision from God, Our Lord Jesus is Sacred, DO NOT share with anyone unless the person is Spiritually connected or Right with you, who will doeth the Vision together with you. Sharing Vision with wrong people will be like giving to dogs who will spit at it and trample them and tear your heart in pieces due to disbelief and saying things or carry out action that will hurt you deeply. So Brothers and Sisters, be careful with God, Our Lord Jesus given Vision. You have great Spiritual Responsibilities!!

Chapter 3 – How to acquire God’s Vision for me?

In the Sermon by Rev. Dr Kim Sunghae, She mentioned that the Holy Spirit will give us four power :- Power 2 provided the answer to the above question.

“Power 2 – Holy Spirit gives us Heavenly Wisdom.
Solomon has mighty Wisdom that comes with Goodness and Christian with anointment of Wisdom will have Visions and dreams”

Why only Christian with Wisdom can have Visions and dreams?

My personal answer is this. Since Visions and Dreams is from God, our Lord Jesus, most of the time it is coded in parables or symbolic representation. (Latest update 14/05/2008, The different between Vision and Dream is that the formal mostly come as a still picture, series of pictures depicting events, signs, symbol or parable whereas dream is always like a movie trailer showing an event or story of the past, present or future, mostly actual happening. Also dream mostly relate you to real life experience could be generated from your sub-conscious mind. Vision is more of a supernatural or prophetic appparition.)Thus normal intelligent will not be able to understand nor interprete accurately. When you have a Vision, do not dismiss it! Ask God, our Lord Jesus “What to do with the Vision” More revelations and confirmations will come and you will be more equipped to complete the Vision. Be a responsible children of God or else why a Vision should be given to you?

Remember, Christian with great wisdom have great spiritual responsibiliy, they are God fearing individual who can cast aside any worldly desire in order to do God’s will. They are humble slave and servant of God, our Lord Jesus. Those who chose to fear MAN will be slave to MAN forever untill they learned how to fear God by giving up SELF and accept Jesus Christ, our saviour completely.

How to ask for Wisdom?

The answer is already been published before. Click this link for the topic. Man Seeking Wisdom
Read and understand:-
Mattew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.”

End notes:

“I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.” (Acts 2:17).

Would you rather have Visions or Dreams? Lateral meaning, only young man shall see Visions. Really? Old man can only dream dreams? Here is the secret to what keeps a person spiritually young. Visons are more intense with lots of God’s secrecy wisdom words and needs the young energetic spirit to run. Think of Caleb, the Vision of defeating Giants had kept him young because the Vision is full of young spirits energy and of great hope. Even at the age of 85, Caleb fought as a young lion and killed the giants. Have Vision, don’t be an old man. You maybe younger but if you have an old man spirit in you, you are not going to get any vision from God. Only those with Wisdom of God can interprete dreams and Vision, see next chapter.

 

The Magician

The Magician

There is a magician who visit town by town.

There in one of the town, there are two groups of people.

First Group is AC, Academic Christian.

Second Group is DC, Disciple Christian.

Now the magician approaches the first group and ask if they would like to see his Magic show. There are talks amongst themselves saying that this magician don’t look like one by the way he dress. With much doubts in their head, they reluctantly decide to pay a price for the show. Then the magician approach the Second group. Even before he reaches the second group, many of them are exclaiming “Look, here comes the Great Magician!” Humbly the Magician asked the second Group if they would like to see his Magic show. Many of them said “Oh, please, our great Magician. Show us now!”

Which group do you think the Magician would be more happy to perform the Magic Show?

Of course, he would perform for the second group because they have faith and trust in him. And most importantly, they KNOW HIM. The Magician thus performed the Magic for the Second Group without charging a single cent !!!

So Brothers and Sisters, if you have faith in God, our Lord Jesus, you will dream dreams, withness miracles and see Visions. As it is mentioned in the Bible.

Mattew 17:20 “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”

Mattew 13:13 “Therefor I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.”

Mattew 13:58 “Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.”

Hear well, my friend. God our Lord Jesus, chose to give Visions and use these little one as God’s Messenger, whom many considered them as little one. And yet, when these little one speak of the Visions and able to be Christ like and speak of parables, they Spit at IT!
The Trumpet is blowing as it is mentioned in the Bible:-

Mattew 12:31 “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven him; but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.”

End notes:
Academic Christian (AC) = Christian who thought that they are Christian or already been saved by gathering knowledge, prayed for Salvation but did not wholly give out SELF, thus wasn’t saved. Thus Enclothing themselve with righteosness or even proclaim work they done is from God, our Lord Jesus. These are the Group of people who can’t hear nor reach God our Lord Jesus. There appears to have a “Gulf Fix” between them and God. No one can cross over unless he or she repent and be reborn again. READ Two Nakedness mentioned in Bible

Disciple Christian (DC)= Christian who are really Saved. They offered their ‘SELF’ as a burning sacrifice in the fire which gives out the aroma that is pleasing to God, our Lord Jesus. Their “Self” is completely renewed and filled by The Holy Spirit. These Group of Christian are cloth with righteous Garment that is recognise by God, our Lord Jesus as Proper Outfit. Blessed are these for they can hear and communicate with God, Our Lord Jesus.

AC also means Alternating Current, meaning the mindset of these people are not focus, alternating different direction always, THEY CANNOT DO GREATER WORK!

DC also means Direct Current, meaning the mindset of these people are very Focus, they go in one direction. These are the people who do things with the Helper, Holy Spirit complete guidance. These are the one who can do much GREATER THINGS and their work is recorded in the kingdom of Heaven.

Which face you want to show?

Which face should I show?

In this part of the world, especially Chinese culture, Face is so Important!!!
We heard of Chinese saying “Give me face” Meaning “Give me the respect I entitled by giving in to me”
We also heard of another Chinese saying “I don’t want to lost face” Meaning “I don’t want to be embarrassed or lost respect”

Added Notes: 19/05/2009 by Stanley
Even Jonah, the prophet care very much of HIS FACE, because God sent him to prophesied to Nineveh “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!” So the people of Nineveh, even the King himself put on sackcloth and repented. Jonah 3:10 “So God relented from the disaster that He had said He would bring upon them, and He did not do it.”
So Jonah “lost face” because what he prohesied did not happened, and he was angry with God. Jonah 4:1-2 “So he prayed to the LORD, and said, “Ah, LORD, was not this what I said when I was still in my country? Therefore I fled previously to Tarshish; for I know that YOu are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness, One who relents from doing harm.”
Jonah even wanted to die because he had “Lost his face”
Jonah 4:3 “Therefore now, O LORD, please take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live!” Very childish isn’t it? But God still love him as his child, he taught him a lesson.

What about Christian, which face should we show all the time to be a good testimony for Our Lord Jesus Christ?

Rev 4:7 “And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.”
This revelation was shared by Mrs Ang (Wife of Pastor Ang in Nee Soon), almost 30 yrs back, a Pentecostal Church.

Mrs Ang explained,
The four beasts represent the character of a gifted loyal Christian and Lord Jesus have the face of Humanity all the times. (With the help of our Holy Spirit, I further interprete the meaning of this passage, which was almost 30 years ago).
Face of a Lion, you must be brave and ferocious as a lion, able to charge forward and attack and kill the unholy.
Face of a Calf, you must be willing to be a slave, you slave for long hours, even with tear in your eyes, you still slave on
Face of a Man, you must possess humanity, this should be the face in the front ALL THE TIME, showing love, grace and Kindness.
Face of an Eagle, you must be able to see things from high above, with sharp eyes and quick to pick up and discern between the Good and Evil with pinpoint accuracy which is the ability to see supernatural. No one can see this spiritual character.

Brother and Sister, being children of God. What character face do we have and what face do we show most of the time? Do we show Humanity all the time or the other faces?
Addon notes 14/05/2009, testimony by Doufang Billy on 26th April 2009 “Do we have to show to people our suffering face? If I am sick, do I have to show to people my sickly face all the time so that people will take pity on me. NO! I will still show the loving face of Lord Jesus, radiant with brightness.”
And yet sometimes, we have to roar like a Lion, showing God’s wrath.

Mattew 21:12 “And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves”

Is chasing out people in the temple peaceful? Turning over tables, very gentle? Definitely NOT! If you were there at that time, you’d witnessed Our Lord Jesus’ ferocious anger, he must had roared like a lion and attack and overturned the table violently as it was mentioned in the Bible. Our Lord Jesus does showed anger, but very very seldom. What we have all the time is his Face Of Humanity, Loving, caring and Teaching people all the time!

Do not be despair, my friends, if you don’t have all the characters that are required of a Christian. You just have to be constantly be doing God’s work, praying and asking for spiritual gifts, for it is mentioned in the Bible.
James 2:26 “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”
So not only you must have faith in God but also be a doer of God’s work. As you sharpen your skill, you are also enlarging your ability, our Holy Spirit will bring in more spirit gifts into you for HIM to administers. But if you do not want to do more work, just be contended with doing some tasks, thereby limiting yourself. Then, how can you do more work for God? A good steward for Lord Jesus is one who is without four walls but willing to increase his capacity at anytime. Now, that is the Good steward of God.

Mattew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.”
So, you have to be constantly asking for more of Lord Jesus and it will be given. In fact once you had progressed to the level of sonship, your wish that is according to God’s will will be fulfill. Listen to my Second Audio speech for this Revelation.

Spreading kindled fire

During one Sunday morning sermon,
While in prayer, my hands clapped with constant rhythm
Then, our pastor was mentioning “let the fire burn, let it spread”
As I closed my pair of eyes, I seems to be holding a pair of flintstones.
Then I opened my pair of eyes, I see the same thing.
Here is what my partner inspired me to write:-

The pair of flintstones firmly I held, one on my left hand and the other on the right hand
As I clapped them together, the jagged edges doesn’t seems to produce good sound,
But it does helped to produce good fire sparks as it breaks away upon impact.
Yes, the breakaway flint sparks managed to spread fire to my immediate neighbouring friends.
The fire is burning in the mid-air, with many of us holding the flintstone clapping together in rhythm.
Yes, the fire is burning strongly, warming the House of God.
Each and everyone of us are burning with desires.
Now I know, as the jagged flints break away to light up more fire, the stone becomes more smooth.
As I clapped these reshaped stone, it produced better sound, a wonderful rhythm of celebration.
Yes, let the kindled fire burn, let it burn, burn, burn
Yes, let clapping stone sounds louder, louder and louder.
Praise the Lord. Hallelujah!
We are celebrating Victory upon victory
Our Angels are dancing in circle to celebrate the Victory too.
This kindled fire is forever burning, now till eternality.
The sounds of celebration will never stop.
Clap, clap, clap, burn, burn, burn
Celebrations, celebrations, rejoicing, rejoicing in the Name of our Lord Jesus.
Hallelujah!
Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.”

Revealing the meaning.
Fire = The Helper Our, Holy Spirit
The Stone = Brothers and Sisters
Hands = Hand of Unity, the Power of Prayer
Flints = Unwanted part of Individual, turned into useful Sparks. Some may think that they are not equiped to share the Gospel. But let’s give this in prayer, for upon received Salvation, this is the 1st commandment, SHARE THE GOSPEL and disciple nations! The Helper who was given to you will help you to speak wisely.
Sound of Clapping stone = Sound of Celebration together in Unity
Reshaped stone = Transforming an individual to a better person.

Interesting fact!

Even olden day, the Indians know the important of communal Fellowship.

A weeping woman

Weeping Woman

A weeping woman

Humbled and rebuked by the Lord I was.
Salvation at the altar call I received
Praise the lord, I was reborn
Married to the Church I am
Rules set wasn’t make known and explained
Stranded, was I
Silently I weep for the diminishing love
Basic responsibility of spreading Gospel, I want to give
But sadness was I; it is stopped by The Walls
Sharing of blessing too, has been stopped by The Walls
Grieved and sad was I, I could not do more blessing
Hierarchy and ranking is required for the right to share nourished bread
Where is the equalness of love and sharing of burden?
Where is the right to show the basic responsibility of spreading Gospel?
Fears of disciples inability to spread Gospel is Not from God, but from human thought
I weep for this drunkenness of the fearful thoughts
Was the Wall built for educating but yet denying Basic God’s work, spreading Gospel?
Woe to those who have fear in their mind
I have daily-nourished bread to share with the hungry one
And yet I was stopped by The Wall
I weep for the hungry one who needed bread to grow
There is no perfect House of God on earth
Bad branches must be prune away to allow new branches to grow and bear fruits
Unfortunately, one administrator of the Group, can’t handle many requests
Where is the teaching of one’s faith?
Spoiling of a child by not giving them FREEDOM to use Faith?
I weep for the hungry one who needs nourishing from daily bread.
Why, oh my Lord, why must there be Wall to deny your work?
The young one would grow faster with nourished bread
And yet it has to be stopped by the Wall?
When will the Group learn their wrongs?
I weep for them, daily, kneeling down and wiped my eyes onto tears soaked skirt
Only those with God’s Wisdom and discernment can rectify this

Praise the Lord for His encouraging words:-
Jeremiah 31:13 “Then the virgin rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old, together; For I will turn their mourning into joy, will comfort them and make them rejoice rather than sorrow.”

End Notes:

Sometimes within ourselves we built walls around to isolate or prevent people from coming in. Even as in certain group. They built wall around them, isolating others from coming in. Elf Hekman said in Asia Conference 2008, “If you have the Holy Spirit in you, you will do things inclusive of others.”

Two Nakedness mentioned in Bible

Two Nakedness mentioned in the Bible
In Old Testament, in Book of Genesis, there is this Nakedness of purity in Adam and Eve before they ate the apple. In the book of Revelation, there is this Nakedness of Shame. So what does these messages mean?
Genesis 2:25 “And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”
Genesis 3:7 “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.”
In the beginning man are trusting and submissive to God until they acquired knowledge and first thing they realized is that they are naked, and they are more self focus and sewed fig leaves and made themselves aprons to cover up. Man start to questions, complains, doubts and disobeying God. In the other word, man needs to be on guard against temptation of woman to commit sins, the work of Satan. Even today, this is no new trick for Satan, woman were still used by the Satan to fell man with sex. Politician had fallen, celebrities had fallen. This is one weakness of man, to fall into temptation of woman for lust. So God had sent Lord Jesus to die for our sin so that we can be Naked again, naked of all sins and be faithful to God again.
Revelations 16:15 “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.”
All servant of God, Our Lord Jesus, should be enclothed by doing things that is righteous and pleasing to God. But those who is not doing the Work of GOD, ie, Off-Guard from doing work in the righteous way, his unrighteous Garment will be taken away by the “Thief” and his nakedness of sins, wrong doing is being exposed, this man needs to constantly “covered himself” up to cover his Nakedness of Shame. Unknowingly, many so call “Christian” are like Pharisees, constantly doing good deeds and telling to the world what goodness they have done, thus enclothing themselves with “Garment” and worst off, they even chided other Christians for not doing what they are doing. Many times, they glorify themselves by boosting what goodness they had done.
Friends, don’t get me wrong that Christians should not be doing Good Deeds. What I am trying to say is that we should be doing deeds in God’s will guided by THE HELPER, the Holy Spirit that God, Our Lord Jesus had sent unto us. Only then these “Garments” is deemed as proper outfit by God, our Lord Jesus because it is done to Glorify God, NOT individual and it WILL NOT be taken away by Our Lord Jesus. All works done with the help of THE HOLY SPIRIT is blameless and it will be recorded in Kingdom of Heaven. For those “Pharisees” Christians, their Garments will be removed by God, our Lord Jesus, Who will come as thief. Their Nakedness of Shame will be revealed. So Friends, be Humble as a child. Don’t let self-righteousness and pride brings you down like the Pharisees. Let THE HELPER, Holy Spirit, guide you in this Spiritual Walk, true blessing to righteous Christian Life. For how much an individual can be guided by The Holy spirit is dependent on how much is willingness let go “Self” and forgoing worldly possessions.

MOUNTAIN CAN BE MOVED IN PRAYER

MOUNTAIN CAN BE MOVED IN PRAYER?

A prayer:

“Oh Lord Jesus, thank you for your salvation.

Lord as we walked this straight path of righteousness

There are obstacles that stood in our way

We pray that Lord, you will clear the path for us

So that we can walk straight path in your light

There are obstacles that seems to be as huge as mountain

Mountain of doubts, uncertainty, problems and all difficulties

We pray that Lord, you can help us clear these mountain in prayer

For it is mentioned in the Bible that Mountain can be remove in prayer

In Jesus name, we pray, Amen”

The brethren asked me “What mountain you’re talking about?”

From this question, I gathered that he don’t understand the meaning of Mountain mentioned

in the BIBLE.

Mattew 17:20 “if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”

Mattew 21:21 “Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.”

Supposely, we gathered all the most faithful Christian together, fast for 40 days and pray for Mt Himalaya to be cast into the sea. Do you think that the mountain will be cast into the Sea? Never ! If it really happened, many people would died of massive flooding and disasters.

The mountain that is being mentioned is about problems, shortcoming etc or it can even be a person that stood in your way.

It is something or somebody that blocked your way, preventing you from moving forward, where you imagine it is like a Huge mountain standing in you way, so huge that you can’t see your vision and you can’t see far. So perhaps, only prayer and some action is required to remove away these mountains. For some very sturborn mountain, only prayer with fasting can remove them.

Important message for Singles and those in romance:

Facts, there are those who are married wanted out because of problem in their marriage, while many singles wanted to have a partner to get married. It is really an opposite world. We really have to thanks Pastor Kong Hee for giving us the sermon on relationship series. With God’s love everything is possible. In the beginning, in book of Genesis, god created Eve to be Adam’s mate. God patiently crafted Eve out of Adam’s rib. So, this has been and will always be the symbolic meaning that a man’s wife should be arranged and crafted by God. Then, if we look at old testament, God played quite a role in arranging marriages. But human became more sinful as they progress through industrialisation. Then, parents became the match-maker for their children’s marriages, almost across all cultures. Those olden days, you seldom see divorces. A wife being married to a chinese man, only knew the role of doing household chores and produce childrens. Can you imagine some family is as big as one football team plus reserves in those days? Then, due to technology advancement and we started to see woman working, taking over man’s role. In politics, CEO and so on. So, the value of the role of woman has been eroded away. In the beginning, it wasn’t intended this way. Now, people being connected back to God through our Lord Jesus have to look up to god for match-making again. Who else can arrange the best mate for him or her? Who else knows the individual from inside out better than our Holy Spirit who dwells in each and everyone of us?

I think it would easier for me to put in Q and A to provide some answer.

Q. Should single set a target date to get married?
A. No, single should not set a target date because you are imposing an ultimate date for God to get a life partner for you. Asking in prayer for a mate should be humble, not to tell God what to do, where, who, when or how he should fulfill it. Yes, our Pastor once said that single should set target date for marriage. Yes, but must be in accordance to God’s will. It would be a dire consequences for individual if the target date came and (especially lady, example set up 30, 32 or 35) nothing happened. This target would become an oppression and the worst off situation is that the individual may rush into marriage decision giving in to concession, even to the extend of thinking that he or she can accommodate the mismatch and then hope to change the person later. It could be the worst mistake and that ended in divorce as the other party would not change and expected the spouse to accept what they are.
Habakkuk 2:3: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Thus your vision of ideal mate will be revealed to you on an appointed time. Pray this way, “Abba Father Jesus, if it is your will that I should be married, reveal to me my life partner in the way of revelations through dreams, vision or even someone that you would sent to tell me. Thank you Lord Jesus for answering my prayer.”

Q. What should I do in order to find my love one?
A. You should not be focusing on finding your life partner. What Lord Jesus has revealed to us is that we must focus on him, that is vertically love God and horizontally loving people fervently. I once said to singles, I think up to date about half dozen of them; that they should continue to focus on doing God’s will (in accordance with his will) by showing love and care for people and in so doing, The Love will come to you. What I mean is that, the person whom God had arranged for you will show up because of your great love for people, she or he will be attracted to you, probably sharing the same interest.

Q. I have been praying for many years until now still singles?
A. There is no fixed answer. Just like there are people who prayed for healing but wasn’t healed? Was it the faith that is in question? I have a spiritual daughter in Surabaya, she requested me to pray for her to have a soul mate, sometime July 2008. So I prayed for her. Then, mid Sept 2008, I happened to chat with her and she thanked me saying that God had arranged a soul mate for her. The man she did not know but met at the Church, he received salvation and Meyna told me that many evil spirits got out of him when he was baptized by the Holy Spirit because he studied black magic. They plan to get married this year. Or you are destined to be single, read 1Cort 7:32 – 35. Apostle Paul wasn’t married. Was the “Thorn in the flesh” is his desire to married someone he loved?.

Q What if I already ROM to a non-believer?
A. If you already ROM with a non-believer than you have to pray for rectification in your this relationship. Or else, many activities both of you cannot do together. Worst is to have the mindset that by getting married, you can influence the person to accept Lord Jesus as their savior. Remember, Lord Jesus gives everyone the freedom to choose salvation or not. This is the same situation as those who was not a Christian and then one of them became a Christian. They too can pray for rectification and for the family’s salvation. What if rectification doesn’t happen or things don’t work out? Listen to what our Holy Spirit is telling you and obey.

Lastly, as mentioned in the Bible. It would be also good if one can remained as single. 1Cort 7:32 – 35 “But I want you to be without care. He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord – how he may please the Lord. But he who is married cares about thing of the world – how he may please his wife. There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in the body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world – how she may please her husband.”

Want to have a covenant marriage by God? You must first have Covenant Love approved by God, Our Lord Jesus.

With this blessed love arranged my God, the two will become one without any frictions. The rib will fit nicely into the chest of the Man, guarding his heart. Thus fufilling the will of God and divorce is remote because covenant love beget covenant marriage. Matt 19:4 “He who made them at the beginning.”

Of course, there are isolate cases of Christian where wrong marriages ended in divorce but later they found renewed blessed new mate. This is taken from Harvest Time No283/07/2007 by Rev Dr. Larry Keefauver “In 21st century culture, divorce isn’t a curse or tragedy, it’s simply a transition from a good marriage gone sour into the exciting adventure of finding a new mate.
Of course we do have 2 groups of people, one group saying critically that any divorce is sinful and while the other group said that it is alright to divorce as long as not due to fornification or due to lust for worldly gain.
I will be writing a book on this issue. Having received revelations concerning this subject. Christians should not be prejudiced nor be judgemental on divorced people or people going into divorce. Due to the change in society, we have to reach out to more divorcees than before.

(Notes added 1/3/2009) Covenant love leading to marriage must be arranged by God, Our Lord Jesus. Do not put target date on your marriage or it will be oppressive to your live if time draws near and nothing happened. Neitheir should you go all out to seek your lifetime partner, you may have to go through the painful rectification process. Let God, Our Lord Jesus be your match-maker, he is our Abba Father.

Unlimited Commitment to GOD

The beginning of Love story…. at the end, the love story never ends …………

In the book of Genesis, in the Garden of Eden para 7 “And the LORD GOD formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.”

In the beginning God love man so much that he created man in His own image (Genesis 1:27) and visited Adam very often.
Those were the day when man had UNLIMITED commitment to LORD GOD, untill Eve who was created from the rib of Adam, and it is this rib that caused the fall of man by eating the forbidden fruit. Adam could have stop it but fall into temptation instead.
Man thus starts to question God of his Wisdom and even try to equal God to such an extent that he don’t need God because he feels that he has the power and knowledge to rule the world. Man had sinned and start to commit lesser time to God. Thus man’s love for God is diminishing, but God’s love for man never change. In the realm of this modern world with modern technology, man has absolutely no time for God. In the Cell Group Gathering, in the midst of brothers and sisters, someone asked “How to have unlimited commitment to GOD?”

Only in Spirit where there is no boundary of universe nor boundary of time limit, then, can we have unlimited commitment to God. We are all born of flesh and even though the Spirit is willing, the flesh is weak. The Flesh can’t work 24 hours, non stop. Man, as being created by the dust is deeply attached to the earth, attached to work commitment, attached to classes schedules, attached to family time, attached to meeting friends, attached to attending business meeting etc. We are all so limited by the physical restriction such as time and location. We have restricted time slot for Cell Group Meeting and the location has limited capacity too which allowed only this number of people. So, it is pretty obvious that in whatever way, we are limited by the physical. Shall we blame Adam and Eve for having eaten the forbidden fruit of knowledge? Unfortunately, we can’t roll back the time, we are the PRESENT living for tomorrow and the future. Being the “Present”, we are a living testimony for our Lord Jesus Christ and we have to move forward doing God’s will and gearing towards the destiny that God our Lord had set for each and everyone of 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.”

That is the timeless unlimited commitment God gave to each and everyone of us for salvation again and again without limit regardless of who you are!

Sometimes we ought to feel bad that we can’t even commit ourselves wholehearted to attend Church Service and Cell Group Meeting. We are all so attached to this earth as we are created from it, that we can’t gives up the worldly possessions. Only if Lord God decides to take mercy on someone so that he shall suffer no more because of his work, then whoever it is, will have unlimited commitment to GOD.

So, should we be mourn for a friend’s departure from this world? Do not be despair my friend, he is giving unlimited commitment to LORD GOD in his eternal life. Sadly, sadly I cried, “Must it be this way Lord Jesus Christ, must all of us have the Spirit departed from the flesh, then we can have unlimited commitment to LORD GOD?”

A voice came from above “Use Time frame” That is right, how wise and how brilliant! Everyone can set aside certain time frame and within this time frame, less he is distracted, he can gives Unlimited commitment to Our Lord Jesus Christ. The individual can choose his own place of solitude He can choose his own time frame, be it 15 minutes or many hours or even days. Bottomline is that the individual want unlimited commitment to GOD and it can be done by allocating time frame!
Hallelujah, Praise the Lord. Amen

End Notes:

The beginning of Love story…. at the end, the love story never ends …………

Have you start the love story with God yet? Don’t wait. I had wasted my youth for not serving God for almost 30 years. While you have the chance to start young.

How many times, I have been broken down, at times hopeless … wish something or some action can takes my life away. But I have someone in my heart that gives me hope all the time regardless of whatever situation that I am in. HE is always around within me to give me HOPE and everlasting Love. Thank you Lord Jesus. …. THE LOVE STORY NEVER ENDS ……..

The place of Sanctuary worship Lord Jesus Christ

Friends, this wonderful experience has been kept in my mind for the past, almost 30 years.
Back then, just as I was on the brink of not being able to take the test anymore,
our gracious Lord Jesus let his angels bring me to a place of sanctuary when my flesh has fallen into deep sleep.

Throughout the years, I will never forget this wonderful feeling of the peaceful flight, the serene environment, the love and great feeling of being away from the worldliness. For Our Lord had said in the Bible :-

1Cor 10:13:”There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”

Act 15:10: “Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?”

Here is the testimony of the great flight to Secret place of sanctuary. See note end for revelations.

The angels had lifted my soul into a journey

So peaceful, silent and smooth is the journey

My hair is being combed gentling through the thin air

There, we landed onto the land of the Prairie

I knew 2 Angels has been guiding me

I see not their faces nor body nor hear their voice

On the huge land, where there are no buildings

I can see green, green grass with yellow flowers everywhere

I see warm daylight; it is neither morning nor afternoon

The bright daylight wasn’t too hot to cause me to perspires

It is like warm love given to me, just like a mother hugging a child

Such is the sense of peace, quietness and serenity where many desire to visit and experience

Behold, not far away at a distance I see a huge tree, there is no one under it

I am enjoying peace; warm love and I don’t find the need to go under the tree

Oh Lord Jesus, thank you for bringing me here

I longed to visit this place again, where there is no worldliness to worry about.

Added note 28th Oct 2008

Psalms 23:2 “He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.” Praise the Lord, this message revealed to me by Spiritual Daughter. Thus, this place of green pastures and still water does run behind the tree in backyard of Heaven. Hallelujah!

Revelations

In any church service or Cell Group Meeting, there ought to have people going there for the wrong purpose. Some go there for the sake of recording attendant. Some go there for the purpose of getting to know girl. Both cases are going there for the WRONG selfish purposes. It is better for the person to stay at home and gives prayer to our Lord Jesus for forgiveness. Going to Church Service or Cell Group meeting should be for oneself commitment to Our Lord Jesus for Prayer, learning and Fellowshipping.

Why it is wrong to go after a Girl in Church Service or Cell Group Meeting?

Mattew 5:27 “Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery”

Mattew 5:28 “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”

Some people may say that this is a preventive measure. For all that we already knew, many adultery cases started from the thought within the offender. He lusts for the woman. He has desire for her. And while this desire dwell within a
person’s mind, the wildest and lustful imagination starts from within his sinful mind and eventually it build up to the level where the individual takes action to take advantage of the woman he likes. In the first place, if there was no lust, ie. there

was no looking at a woman and lust after her, then wrongful intention to possess her, adultery, molest or rape would not have taken place. So, the individual who is to attend Church or Cell Group meeting for the purpose of finding love mate is putting SELF on top of our Lord Jesus and this person will not be focusing on Biblical learning value. He is completely distracted in trying to achieve his purpose of coming to the meeting. He will be Jealous, Disappointed, Bittered and even resort to doing things that is not in accordance with Christian Cultural value to try to get his wants.

So friends, come to the Church Service or Cell Group Meeting with a Pure Clean Mind, ie for only one Purpose: –

“To worship God, our Lord Jesus only!” Focus on Lord Jesus Christ only and all Good things will cometh unto you.

Pray that your state of Mind, your Soul will be brought to the place of Sanctuary, where everyone is equal, everyone is neither marry nor are given in marriage, but like angels in heaven, all come together for the sole purpose of worshipping God our Lord Jesus. Amen, Hallelujah !

Mark 12:25 “For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.”

Note: “For those with lustful thoughts, they should pray for removal of these “lusts” by confession to Our Lord Jesus, even days before attending Church or Cell Group Meeting.”

Mark 10:14 “But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.”

Mark 10:15 “Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.”

Unless onself is as humble as little children, he cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. On the same token, this lustful thoughts is definitely from the Selfish SELF, unless the individual can humble himself down to the level of little children, he can never hear the Voice from God, our Lord Jesus. He is so “NOISY” within himself, complaining and Self-pitying. The humble child has great desire to learn and to grow spiritually, has no interest in Selfish worldly desires. He has his heart wholly obedient and listen intently to his Father, God, Our Lord Jesus.

I asked in prayer:
“Father, God, Our Lord Jesus. Why use the Adultery example in Matt 5:27, as it does not apply to other wrong reasons that christian attend church or cell group meeting?” Thus our Lord replied me patiently, “Understand the Symbolic meaning of THE WOMAN”
From here I had communion with the Holy Spirit and here is the answer birthed by my Wonderful Partner:-
Woman represents:-
– lust of fornication
– lust to commit sins
– lust for Authority (Current world, more woman are in Power, President, etc)
– distraction away from Jesus
– Weakening
– Falsification of truth (Applying heavy makeup to cover true self)
– Lust for making money (Materialism)

Empty Vases Makes the most noise

“Empty Vase makes the most noise”

That is some old saying, when you hit the vase that is empty, it will makes more noise than those that is filled with water. That applys to us, meaning that people who are empty minded tends to makes most noise, be boastful as though they knew a lot of things, just as it is, if you filled up this vase. The noise is lesser, because the more intelligent,cunning kind will kept quiet and speak out loud when it is more profitable for them.

Well, for Biblical application, we can look at it in another way, that the vase represents the human heart. When oneself is empty of the goodness of the Holy Spirit. He tends to makes a lot of noise out of Jealousy, anger, vengeful, discontented, and no goodness will come out of the mouth. So for a human heart that is empty of the Holy Spirit, it is slowly, but surely will be filled with worldly desire, materialism and this person may not makes much noise but harbors ill intentions.
So who is a more dangerous person? The one that complains a lot or the one who is very quiet, but harbors evil thoughts?
Another old saying “A barking dog doesn’t bite!” That is right; the dog that doesn’t bark will bite you viciously. The Bible also advised us to stay away from such people. So how can the person hear God’s calling? Especially where our Lord Jesus said
Re:3:20: “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
How can a person, being noisy internally able to hear our Lords calling? I remembered bumping into my colleagues a few time while on the way to office and I greeted them “Good Morning” but they did not return the greetings. Why are they so unfriendly? Now I found out, this is because they have earpiece plugged to their ear, listening to Songs from Mobile phone or MP3. No wonder they didn’t return my greetings. Their pair of ears and mind is full of music noise, so whatever good greeting from outside. They CAN’T hear. That proved the point.
If we are noisy inside us, we can’t hear nor pay attention to other people, especially our Lord’s calling. This applies to Christian also, sometimes, we lost focus on our Lord Jesus, Our SELF takes control of our action, that SELF CONTROL without the Holy Spirit (The Helper) becomes NOISE and we can’t hear instructions from Our Lord Jesus, thus not being able to do God’s will. Not doing God’s will, will be met with lots of obstacle, unclear direction and also causing problems not to own self but to others people.
So, where do we go from here? Either you are filled by the Holy Spirit in your Heart, which will gives you all the Goodness such as Love, faith, grace, humble, etc or be filled with worldly desires, mixture of good and bad, anger, jealousy, evil thought, vengeful, etc. So make your choice today my friend, you can either be Empty Vase making the most noise or be filled with Holy Spirit, THE HELPER ie. Receiving Salvation from Lord Jesus so that all goodness will come out of you, sharing blessing and Gospel like spreading light in the darkness, like kindled fire warming every cold corner of the earth. Mark 10:14 “But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.”
Mark 10:15 “Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter herein.”
Unless one is as humble as little children, he cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. On the same token, he can’t hear the voice of Our Lord Jesus because he is far away from GOD.
He needs the Holy Spirit to come into him to help him suppress the “Noisy Self” and remove the worldliness completely not once but constantly through prayer and cleansing with our Lord Jesus’ Blood.

Fellowship Saved me from Trouble

15 Dec 2007 – BBQ at Pasir Ris Park organize by Vv Lim
15 Dec 2007 – 2pm

It was raining heavily at Jurong. At 2pm I suppose to pickup Lee at Blk 636. Then I will have to proceed to Jurong East Blk 248 for Saeedah, follow by Woodland Blk 717 for Farina and her son. I arrived late to pickup Lee. Then at Saeedah’s place, slightly late at about 3.05pm but on time for Farina and her son. It was really heavy rain and I have to slow down a lot. Then my no.1 called me at 3.30pm but I decided not to pick up her call, she been very negative about me having fellowship with brother and sister.

We arrived at White Sand Shopping Center Pasir Ris to meet up Cindy, and then we went to wrong location, NTUC Resort.

15 Dec 2007 – 4pm

Finally make it at PA Pasir Ris Park at around 4pm. Saw Danny and Joreen there in red T-shirt. We all move to the BBQ area. Then all of us were advised to move to sheltered area as it is going to rain. One by one we moved to the shelter and settle down, anticipating rain fall together.

15 Dec 2007 – 5.20pm

Then I received 2 missed calls. My caller ID showed that it is from Mr Lim, my Developer for Holland Apartment. So decided to excused myself and make a return call. Mr Lim answered my call; saying “Stanley, you better come down to Holland now, I am with the buyer now and we have some argument.” So I replied “What is it that they are not happy? I can’t go down now; I have a company function going on.” Mr Lim replied “No, no you better come down to clarify some issue; they said that you gave them wrong dimension for the unit they had bought. Maybe trying to say that you had misrepresented.” At this point of time, I am feeling very trouble. Note: In Real Estate misrepresentation is a very serious offence. Buyer can sue agent for their lost; tens or even hundred of thousand dollars. 5:40 Mr Lim Forwarded a SMS to me, proof of overstating the built up area. I have to make a decision whether to go down and settle everything or to stay behind to enjoy the BBQ. I prayed to our Lord Jesus for help and guidance. Then I decided, fellowshipping with brothers and sisters is more important and I called Mr Lim to say that I not going down today but tomorrow which is Sunday 16/12/2007 at 3pm at Holland Apartment. I went back to the sheltered area with my mind still thinking of how to settle the problem. Try my best to put up a smile but could not conceal my troubled face. Then I told Vv Lim, Ken that I need prayer for God’s Wisdom. Then John came to me and said that he can help me pray, so we went to further away and sit on the bench. So I showed to John the SMS which I read the following morning at cell meeting on Friday on how my Prayer has been answered within an hour from Cichi, my online daughter. This SMS solved my concern, “uncertainty of whether accommodation is book, or is Cichi going to meet me” I told John this “That is the problem with all Christian, our Lord Jesus perform miracles but the Evil one is around to create trouble. I received phone call from my Developer for Holland Apartment. He said that the Buyer is trying to say that I misrepresented and they forwarded a SMS claiming that it was sent by me. Misrepresentation in Real Estate can be sued for tens or even couple of hundred thousand dollars.” So I requested John to pray to our Lord Jesus Christ to give me wisdom so that I can speak wisely the following day when I meet them. So we started praying. After prayer we walked back to the shelter and game start

15 Dec 2007 – Near 6pm

The rain started to pour down mid-way through the game. We have just finished introducing ourselves. Then we played the slapping face game. God blessed us. Rain stopped after the game and we all moved to the BBQ pit. While our Heart helpers setup BBQ we played another game, this time we enjoyed most. Playing the attitude game, sad face or happy face. This game really brings about the Teamwork of getting the Items listed for happy face and sad face. My Team won!! Each one of us won a price of nice photo frame and we also sing praise to Lord Jesus, John shared the meaning of Christmas. All of us really enjoyed the wonderful BBQ organized by Vv Lim and Hearts. Then we all BBQ until almost 2200 hrs. I move off at 2205 sending Farina, her son and Saeedah home. I reached my home about mid-night.

16 Dec 2007 –  0130 hrs – Running through email correspondence for defense

I prayed to Lord Jesus for his help. I checked all my email in the Sent folder for evident that I had sent correct information to the Buyer through the Co-Broke agent. Not good, I remembered, all my out mail, I had deleted away. I begin to worry. Then 30 mins into searching, somehow miraculously the most important email wasn’t deleted, dated 26th August 2007. Praise the lord, remembered that I wasn’t reborn again Christian till 2nd Dec 2007 and this miracle has been done for me even before my reborn date. So I gather my presentation file, this printed email and go to Bed at 2.33am

16 Dec 2007 – 0930 hrs – Church Service

It was just after the service and very concerned Brother John walk to me and ask if I am alright and also if I am going to the meet up the Developer. Then I told John “No need, praise the Lord, I am staying behind for more fellowship and prayer. Because our Lord Jesus is victorious and he solved my problems.” We have scattered lunch together, I sat down with Lee and Bahrah. Then I was told that, all of them are going to Danny’s house for gathering in appreciation of their help on their Wedding. Well, I have nothing much to do, so I called Mr Lim to said that I will be meeting him at his Shop around 4pm. So I met Mr Lim and we have the common understanding that the c was a Fake one from the co-broke agent trying to frame me. Moreover, I advised Mr Lim that no Buyer in Good sense of mind will buy property based on SMS. Also I had emailed important information on 26th August 2007. The buyer put up Option to buy 1st day of September 2007. So they had seen the certified built-up before purchase. So I jokingly asked when my company can invoice the commission. Mr Lim said that I must wait for this matter to be solved first. Then I told him that I going to Surabaya from 19th to 22nd December 2007 .

Friends, Brothers and Sisters. Hallelujah, Praise the Lord, our Father, and Lord Jesus Christ. Had I chose to gone down on BBQ day. Things may turn out very bad for me. But I decided to have FOLLOWSHIP WITH ALL OUR BELOVED BROTHERS AND SISTERS instead.

End Notes:

Brothers and Sisters
It is because you’re close to God that you will have to carry the burden of witnessing and testifying for our Lord Jesus Christ. Thus many events, miracles shall happen before your eyes and that shall be your burden to carry to testified for our Lord Jesus Christ. You are able to witness all these happening because you are closer to God. Would a Magician perform magic for you if you have great doubts (no faith) in his ability? Of cause NOT! He would rather choose to perform to individual who believe him more. Latest! Praise the Lord. Commission realised. God, our Lord Jesus is Victorious!

Man Seeking Wisdom

Catch the wind
Picture from http://www.photosight.ru/photos/3242709/

Man Seeking Wisdom

God created earth and Wind,
The wind blows from North to South.
East to West as it pleases.
Man knows nothing about how the wind moves.
It comes and goes as it pleases.
Sometimes it cools the heated mother earth.
Sometimes it fans the wild raging forest fire.
Making the fire grow wilder, destroying homes and
lives in its path of wrath.
For mankind is powerless against it.
He can’t contain it nor chase after it.
Trying to find out where and when the wind blow,
Is like seeking wisdom from God.
Silly man will try to chase after the wind.
He would said “Here comes the wind!”
He said “I want to catch it by chasing”
North, he goes chasing after the wind.
South, he goes chasing after the wind.
East, he goes chasing after the wind.
West, he goes chasing after the wind.
But he becomes a broken down man all too soon!
Because he catches Nothing!
Wisdom from God is not for man to seek.
It is for man to ask from God in prayer and it will be given as gift.
Would you waste your time waiting for maple leaves to drop from the Tree?
Or would you collect maple leaves with proper planning?
For God had created the Seasons and time for everything.
Wiseman who had gotten wisdom from God will gathers maple leaves
during the correct season, the falls; abundantly!”

Added notes 1/4/2009 While our hearts go out and cry for the victims of Australia worst fire on 9th Feb 2009, there was nothing much that can be done against this natural disasters. No one knows why. But who can fight against the Wind that fan the fire? News BBC NEWS

How to ask for Wisdom? Read and understand:-
Mattew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.”
Was Uriah Heep song depicting a man’s acknowledgement of the only way, the only way to real wisdom is through Lord Jesus but as the song depicted people chosen the easy way in the end… very sad.
[wp_ad_camp_1]

[wp_ad_camp_2] I sat before the wise man In the autumn of my youth
And I told him all The things I had to know
He said you have the future If you need to find the truth
And in his eyes I saw that it was so
So I came right out And asked him The meaning of life
And has he smiled I saw a twinkle in his eyes
He said with all his years There’s still so much He has to learn
And I saw that it was so
Keep on living, loving Waiting your turn
It’s the only way to Ease your concern
If you want to find Your dream, be sure You don’t wake up too soon
Or you’ll find it easier Shooting for the moon
Wise man, wise man
Which way shall I run There’s so many roads
So many ways to turn
I am like a blind man Lost in the sun
I wanna be like you And be a wise man too
But I’m looking for An easy way to learn
Wise man, wise man
Which way shall I run
There’s so many roads So many ways to turn
I am like a blind man Lost in the sun
I wanna be like you And be a wise man too
But I’m looking for An easy way to learn
Oh, wise man Oh wise man
I wanna be like you And be a wise man too
I wanna be like you And be a wise man too
I wanna be like you And be a wise man too
Wise man, wise man too
Which way shall I run
There’s so many roads So many ways to turn
I am like a blind man Lost in the sun
I wanna be like you And be a wise man too
But I’m looking for An easy way to learn
Oh, wise man Oh wise man I wanna be like you
And be a wise man too I wanna be like you
And be a wise man too
I wanna be like you And be a wise man too
Which way shall I run
There’s so many roads So many ways to turn
I am like a blind man Lost in the sun
I wanna be like you And be a wise man too
But I’m looking for An easy way to learn

TESTIMONY BY STANLEY TAN REBORN CHRISTIAN ON 2ND DEC 2007

A) Deciding to join Church Service

I once passed by City Harvest Church at Jurong St.92, I was very impressed by sight of seeing coaches after coaches of Church goers. I set myself to think whether if these people are going there really to attend Church Service or just wanting to join the well known Church to enjoy the Stardom there? So I said to myself, “Wish I could there one day.”

Vivi Lim invited me to attend her church service at EXPO on 25th Nov 2007 saying there is a painting program. But I decided not to go because I thought that I should not go to a Church Service just because there is some special activity there but rather I would go there just for the sake of going to church. So I only planned to go to Church Service at EXPO, the following week.

On 30/11/07, I asked Vivi Lim about the timing for church service on Sunday. She told me that it is 9.30am. Okay, so I had decided to go to the The EXPO on 2nd Dec 2007. It doesn’t matter which church it is, so I thought. Vivi Lim had advised me to go there with an open heart. My mindset had already been fixed to think that City Harvest Church that I once wished to go in was only at Jurong West St 92, so this one which I am going must be another Church at Far away location, The EXPO.

B) Our Lord preparing me by clearing doubts and questions

As I was driving along AYE, I started asking myself questions. Why I backslide? Backslides? What is that? I don’t really comprehend the full meaning of it. History comes back to my mind one by one. Oh yes, what had I done to my very worn-out Bible? I threw it away and along with it my many pages of hand-written interpretation of Symbolic meanings. Yes, at that point of time, I remembered that I strongly believed in the passage Mattew 7:7 “Ask and It will be given, seek and you’ll found” Certain thing that I wanted in Prayer wasn’t answered, i.e. not given.
Driving passed Marine Parade on ECP
Deep inside my mind, these questions somehow started to find its own answers deep within my sub-conscious mind. Somehow I realized how self-centered I was, I wrote articles and poems to vent my frustration and also insist my Church Sister (Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church) in charge of Newsletter print out my article for my selfish purpose. I started to feel very sorry to have forced my way to have my article published. I was making my own decision to try to make things happened but it never did. So our Lord Jesus Christ had somehow make arrangement for me to be married to someone else. And at this point, I realized that I have a mission. I arrived at The Expo, 9.25am.

C) My wish Granted

It is amazing, I wasn’t expecting my wish to be granted so sudden and so unexpectedly. I am attending City Harvest Church Service! It is so funny, having been told many times by Vivi Lim and S.K. Lee that they are attending City Harvest Church service and yet I was so ignorant and silly because my mindset had fixed City Harvest Church at Jurong West St 92. Yes, now I recall, that is the place where I was once stopped by the Security/User to let pedestrian cross the road at Jurong West. Our Lord Jesus Christ really has his miraculous way of granting my wish.
Ken brought me in to the Church. Once I entered the EXPO arena. I hear loud music. What is this Music? So loud and sounds like rock music. Is it the music suitable for church service? I find it noisy. Why so many of them jumping like rabbits? Our Lord Jesus Christ somehow had spoken through messages. Ah yes, the answered is being revealed. Our lord is the Past, Present and the End. Somehow I began to understand how he is able use the modern music to attract youngster to come to Church service. Amen, how many souls had been saved from harm’s way through this musical? I begin to like the contemporary music and songs. Isn’t this proved that God our lord is ever living God who can move with time? It is really amazing how God had used our Sisters and brothers to use modern music to lure youngster away from trouble, as stated in the Bible.
Rev 21:13 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the End, the First and the last” What about the present? Oh yes, we brothers and sisters are the present, “The living Testimony of Lord Jesus Christ.”

D) Preparing me to go to the Altar

The message about Adam and Eve, eating the forbidden fruit, both finding shame of being naked, fear and have no faith in God. Somehow these start to break me down. I started to realized numerous times I had misused knowledge given to me, thereby hurting and making people angry. Then Rev Kong Hee mentioned about why human being had so much fear in failure, which is because God was not put front to steer the business. At this movement, tears started to flood my eyes; I had to remove my glasses couple of times to wipe away my tears. How silly I was, no wonder there was so much misunderstanding and doubts, although it was my Good intention to give other people opportunity make money. They have doubts suspicions in my proposal. My clouded mind begins to clear out; it is only with God’s help, which is full of Love, Grace, and faith that we can safely put our business without blame from people.
Next message was, businessman can be very successful in their business, but their business is limited. With God’s help and control, it is bounder less, and business can grow and grow without limit due to Global connections. We have a touching sharing by MACY Pte Ltd on how it becomes successful after putting the business into God’s hand. With God blessing the business, there is no suspicion, no fear of failure. This time I am silently crying, I think I have inner joy now. I am released from bondage to my OLD Self.
Praise the Lord for being so patient with me. For the past 20 years or so, I had not been attending church, nor pray to Lord Jesus Christ, yet is he so willing to forgive me. Rev 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him and him with me.”
For all these 20 years or so, I do not have a humble soul, there is so much complains in my mind; trouble, doubts, jealousy, anger, vengeance and all the worldly knowledge that makes me unhappy. I have no space for our Lord Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, God. How would I able to hear when my door was knocked? I am so noisy within me. Our Lord Jesus Christ has been knocking doors of everyone around the world. It is such a shame that I didn’t hear his knock and open my door for him. I had to be rebuked 3 times by our Lord Jesus Christ through the spoken message by Rev Kong Hee. (Please note that I do not know how I quantified 3 times, I will be writing a book on 1-2-3, I strongly feel that this is our Lord calling for me to write. The 1-2-3 has very significant meaning in our daily life). Before coming to church, I planned to say 3 things to Vivi Lim. First thing “(apology, I have to keep this one silent)”, Second thing “I will accept Lord Jesus Christ only next week. Third thing “Since I already been Baptized in Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church, I will serve in my first Church.”
How wrong was I. The lord has spoken to me “I am the best businessman of world, of the universe. No one can negotiate with me with his own terms and conditions”
John 21:6 “Cast the net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.”
So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish. This time Rev Kong Hee asked all to close their eyes so that for those who want to accept Jesus Christ can put up their hands. I put up my both hands real high up in the air. This time, my crying of joy really is very audible. I am crying like a baby. Rev Kong Hee asked all who had put up their hand to go the front stage “The Altar” to accept Jesus Christ.

E) Surrendering myself in front of the Altar

Without hesitation, I moved forward very quickly to The Altar, with Sister Vivi Lim and Brother Ken guiding me. (Added note: Actually, the Holy Spirit hurried me to the get the best location, both of them had hard time catching me up. Been at center of stage, I have opportunity to be welcome by Pastor Kong Hee and Rick) I said to Lord Jesus “You are the best Businessman; I completely surrender myself unto you. Oh Lord Jesus, I need your Guidance. I need you to steer my business. I pledge all my business into your hand, Oh lord. I want to be Naked again just like the beginning, Adam and Eve with no knowledge of this World. Take away everything worldly from me. Oh Lord. Make me blind again, so that I can’t see worldly possession because I believed in you and you can make see again in the light of righteousness. Make me crippled; so that I shall not walk sideway nor on the wrong path again, because I believe Lord Jesus Christ can c; so that I can walk the straight path of righteousness. Prune away every part of my body that is bad, so that I can grow new branches and bear fruits, Oh lord.”
John 15:2 “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”

F) Hallelujah, I am reborn again

Together with Vivi Lim, Kenneth and myself. We prayed. I prayed for Lord Jesus to forgive all my sins. Heard Vivi Lim’s Speak-in- tongue, immediately I felt very close and warm. This same Gift from God when Holy Spirit descended onto everyone here, I already had. I began to enjoy the Music even more. Yes, my path has been laid and I know Lord Jesus Christ had a mission in plan for me in this City Harvest Church, Hallelujah Amen.

Brothers and Sister, thank you for reading my testimony. Many miracles had happened before my eyes after being reborn. Be steadfast, have good faith in God, our Lord Jesus Christ. Because whenever our Lord Jesus is performing miracles, the evil one is always there to tempt you away from God.

Addon Notes:

Miracle on 14th Dec 2007 How our Lord Jesus had answered my Player of Uncertainty for my Trip to Surabaya in less than an hour. Fellowshipping with brothers and sisters kept me out of trouble We are having BBQ, and then I had an urgent phone call. My developer insists I go down to Holland Road. But I never did, because I know the important of Fellowshipping. It is amazing that how this decision had saved me from Potential damaging trouble.
