Dead bury own dead

This verse was spoken by Father Jesus in response to the refusal of an invited man to follow Him and become His disciple. He excused himself by reason that he has the duty to bury his dead father.

Jesus said, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.” He was responding to a request from one of His followers who asked to be excused from his responsibilities to “go and bury [his] father” (verse 21).

Especially in Chinese tradition, if you would not care about your father’s buried, it is a taboo, people will be quick to call you unfaithful, disrespectful or unfilial son or daughter. You see, my father-in-law passed away few months back, 30/7/16. I cannot exhibit the care less attitude by continuing working and say the same the thing to my wife and her family members, “let the dead bury their own dead.”

This would be a very arrogant demand, especially in a family-centered Middle Eastern culture. The only reason it’s not is if Jesus is actually deserving of more love than anyone and anything else, and is thus God Himself incarnate. (Which is of course, what Christians believe about Jesus).

Critics of the Bible have often considered these as “hard sayings” of Father Jesus seems to encouraged his disciples to BREAK the fifth commandment (honor your father and mother) by not giving their fathers a proper burial. Is this consistent with the laws of YEHOVAH God? Is the Messiah really demanding this?

When He said “Let the dead bury its own dead? Is He is teaching us to be a irresponsible person, infilial son or daughter? Or is he saying merely a miracle will really happen, that the dead will really get out of the coffin and bury themselves? There are many interpretation to this bible verse. You can google for search it.

Billy Graham explained “To us Jesus’ words to this man might sound harsh, but that is because we don’t understand what the man was really saying. When someone in Jesus’ day said they wanted to go bury their father, it didn’t necessarily mean he was already dead. Instead they really were saying that they wanted to stay with their father until he died, something that might be years away. This man was simply looking for an excuse to avoid becoming Jesus’ disciple.” Url Link https://billygraham.org/answer/what-did-jesus-mean-when-he-said-to-let-the-dead-bury-the-dead

Most commentators suggest that Yeshua meant “Leave the (spiritual) dead to bury the (physical) dead” — see The Anchor Bible: The Gospel According to Luke I-IX, by J. Fitzmyer, and Luke, The Expositor’s Bible Commentary, by W. Liefeld. This interpretation, though common and known as the “majority interpretation,” simply is NOT consistent with the text and with FIRST-CENTURY JEWISH BURIAL CUSTOMS! Taken from http://www.hope-of-israel.org/deadbury.htm

So many could justify that Father Jesus’ saying is correct, that the response to spiritual calling is more important important than our domestic (physical issue).

It is hard for many Christian to comprehend this, that you need to have agape love for Father Jesus. You must put aside everything personnal (fleshly associated) to follow Him, in order to be His disciple. Puting the love of Father Jesus side by side with family members, the comparison has to be so extreme, such that love for Father Jesus is so strong that everything else became hatred. Here are the supporting bible verses:

Matthew 10:37-38 (NIV) “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.”

Does this sayings of Father Jesus meant that you should not love your family members? That would contradict the 10 commandment isn’t? “Honor your father and your mother, that you may live a long time in the land the Lord your God is giving to you.” Father Jesus is not saying that you must not honor (love) your father and mother, what he meant is that your love for Him must be agape love such that your love for your parent, as a comparison, is like hatred. Why is it like hatred? Look at Peter and the rest of fishermen, they left their livinghood and family behind to follow Father Jesus, that seems like hatred action by his family members.

Luke 14:26 (NIV) “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, even their own life, such a person cannot be my disciple.” Here is the direct translation as Father Jesus mention as if to hate your father and mother. But explained earlier, your love for Father Jesus must be such extreme as agape love that seems hatred by the human emotion and logic.

Allow me to provide a clearer picture leading to Father Jesus saying “Let the dead bury its own dead.”

Instead, Christ told the man to focus on his calling. A better sense of Jesus’ statement would be, “Don’t neglect the high spiritual calling I’ve given you; let the spiritually dead attend to the routine tasks of life.” Certainly, Christ would not forbid the man from attending to the funeral arrangements for his father. Christ Himself went to visit the family of His friend Lazarus after Lazarus’ death, even at great risk of His life (John 11:1-16).

Certainly, this man may have wanted to fulfill the oldest son’s duty to bury the father, to be near the father in order to obtain an inheritance, or to remain near the body of his father for up to one year to rebury the bones, a practice of some Jews at the time. In any event, Jesus’ answer makes clear that this request would have involved putting tradition and/or the disciple’s own desires ahead of serving Jesus.

1Kings 19:19-21 “So he [Elijah] departed from there, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth. Then Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle on him. And he [Elisha] left the oxen and ran after Elijah, and said, ‘PLEASE LET ME KISS MY FATHER AND MY MOTHER, AND THEN I WILL FOLLOW YOU.’ And he [Elijah] said to him, ‘GO BACK AGAIN, FOR WHAT HAVE I DONE TO YOU?’ So Elisha TURNED BACK FROM HIM, and took a yoke of oxen and slaughtered them and boiled their flesh, using the oxen’s equipment, and gave it to the people, and they ate. THEN he arose and FOLLOWED ELIJAH AND SERVED HIM.”

Here we see Elijah allowing Elisha to return home to bid his parents good-bye BEFORE leaving to serve him. Elijah did NOT insist that Elisha drop everything, leave the oxen in the field and disappear off the face of the earth as far as his family was concerned! Was Elijah more righteous and compassionate than the Messiah?

My understanding for the reason why Father Jesus spoken in this manner to the disciple is that He knew the thought of the disciple. The reason was because the disciple wanted to make use of his Father’s buried as an excuse not to follow Father Jesus. When Father Jesus said to him “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.” Father Jesus is merely telling him not to make excuses for not following Him and be his disciple. In our normal carnal world, we tends to make excuses for not doing something for someone, esp more so for Jesus’ mission, and that of “ceremonial burial” for the dead father is a very legitimate reason. So, did Father Jesus really read the heart amd mind of the disciple who make the excuse? Let us take a look at the sequence of event that lead to Father Jesus saying thus to His disciple.

Matthew 8:18-22 (NIV)

The Cost of Discipleship

18 And when Jesus saw great multitudes about Him, He gave a command to depart to the other side. 19 Then a certain scribe came and said to Him, “Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go.” 20 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” 21 Then another of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” 22 But Jesus said to him, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”

Verse 18-19, Perhaps the scribe was very impressed with Father Jesus’s teaching and he wanted to follow Father Jesus wherever He go. Then Father Jesus told him that he will be traveling most of the time, and he has no fixed home where he can rest even His head.” (Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head). At this point, the scribe may not had followed Father Jesus as he was used to have good life and comfort at home. Father Jesus spoke into his heart. Then, Father Jesus, perhaps already knew the thinking of the disciple that he would be making excuses of not following Him. so as it was, the disciple used his father burial as the reason not to follow Father Jesus.

Yes, Father Jesus knows the heart of everyone. To the Pharisees, he spoke to their heart, Matthew 23:27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.”

Here was another instance where Father Jesus spoke into a person’s heart because He knew his thoughts. This case is The Rich Young Ruler Matthew 19:16-22 (ESV)

16 And behold, a man came up to him, saying, “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” 17 And he said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments.” 18 He said to him, “Which ones?” And Jesus said, “You shall not murder, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not steal, You shall not bear false witness, 19 Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 20 The young man said to him, “All these I have kept. What do I still lack?” 21 Jesus said to him, “If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” 22 When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.”

Sounds familiar? Do you have church member who had grown up in church, very successful, like a “Ruler” in control of everything, in his business and even church ministry. Here is the clue that biblically points to successful young man “All these I have kept. What do I still lack?” Father spoke into his heart, that he had used his effort to became “very law obeying in church” and be successfully rich. There is no lack for being a good church disciple and finacial. Father Jesus is not against blessing His disciples with richness. But what grabbed him is that his heart was so attached to his money (great possession), that he can’t let go and he forgo eternal life for his material gain. In today’s context, many of these successful “young ruler” would not be able to let go their “possession” to follow Father Jesus’s mission. They will find excuses, of having to attend to their business. The worst part is part is that these successful youth claimed that their success through their own effort is given by God. There will be a time when Father Jesus will test their faith, just like the Rich young man (or Ruler), whether they can let go of their wealth to help the poor in Father Jesus’s given vision. What excuses will they give? What if they are being rapture? Will they look back to their worldly possession on their way up to the cloud? Tell you what, thanks Father Jesus, I almost looked back for my family but praise the Lord, I carried “The anointing oil, Our Holy Spirit” is with me, HE cautioned me “Don’t look back!” I focused and zoomed upward towards the 3 clouds, I can felt the thin cloth adhere to my transformed body rocketing upwards. The air was so fresh. Then, within seconds, I was on my firm ground again, near the pedestrian bridge, crossing towards Hong Lim Complex. Well, did my such claim contrary to the Bible? Do you read bible? Father Jesus cautioned His disciples “Remember Lot’s wife”. She turned into pillar of salt when she looked back, refusing to let go her worldly lustful possession in the sinful cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
But as Father Jesus had spoken “let the dead bury their own dead”. What Father Jesus meant is that we worried over too many things and tends to give priority over personal affair than to make sacrifice for Kingdom of God. What He meant is that those problems will be solved by itself. Here is the assuring Bible verse that Father Jesus had spoken to His disciples, hope it is a blessing to all who read my notes.

Matthew 6:25-34 (NLT)

“That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life, whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God[a] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

I paricularly like the last verse “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” People who worry the tomorrow will never plan anything for the next day, and likely they will make excuses for not moving on to plan for the next spiritual calling.

Here is another example of worrying for the wrong thing. Remember Mary and Martha?

John 12:1, “which has the meeting take place at the house of Lazarus, who is not mentioned in Luke’s story). Her sister, Mary, sits at Jesus’ feet listening to him. Martha, “distracted by her many tasks,” asks Jesus to tell Mary to help her. Jesus replies: “Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her” (Luke 10:41-42). Here Martha is the symbolical equivalent to today’s Christian doing and focussing on church ministries, but they forgot about the soft voice calling of Father Jesus. While those Christian who seems not very involved in much church work may had spiritual calling to do other tasks that is not within the church. They are the one who, like Mary, sits at Jesus’ feet and do HIS visionary missions. Martha could easily used the need to do the tasks as the excuse not to attend to and listen to Father Jesus’ teaching like The Rich young man.”

For me, I am glad, I did not continue with my market place of work and said to my family member by saying arrogantly, “Let the dead bury its own dead.” But I applied urgent leave and had helped out in my Father-in-law funeral. I booked the HDB function hall because brother-in-law not allowed to book any premises for the funeral as he stayed in private property. I had paid my last respect by bowing and not involved myself in the Taoist praying ritual. I could have stained the Gospel of Christ if I did it.

Anyway, if really there was a spiritual calling for me, what would do you think my respond would be? Thanks Father Jesus for His Gift of Wisdom and Discernment. I know how to discern whether the calling is from Father Jesus or not. I interprets and understood the heavenly language of Dreams, Visions and Revelations. John 10:27 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”

To summarize, do not worry about what will happen next when received spiritual calling from Father Jesus. For you will not know tomorrow. You can plan everything by yourself but things may not happen your way. But if the mission is from Father Jesus, He will ensure that you will be blessed and rewarded. Do not give yourself excuses for not wanting to do God’s will. Also obeying human authority without getting direct visions, dreams and revelations from Father Jesus can tantamount to disobey God because they are doing man’s will. You can’t run away from God’s calling. Just like Jonah, what happened when he tried to run away from God’s calling? God caused a big whale to swallow him up. At least he repented while in the fish’s belly and did God’s will of warning the King and people of Nineveh.

I never procrastinate on Father Jesus’ calling. Father Jesus’ calling via my wife (who is still a non believer). She out of the blue suggested to me to apply for a job just across the street from my home. At that time, I was busy researching on internet for marketing strategy techniques. So I responded and applied for the job. I have my interview on the same day and 2 hours later received call that I was offered the job. Without hesistation, I took up the job. Today, I realized that Father Jesus had fulfilled my prayer that I had forgotten. I prayed for a job near to my home, not further than 15 minute of transportation and salary of $1,500 per month for my semi retire job.

So, my friends, when you have a calling. As a true disciple, you will be able to regconise the voice of the Sherpherd. What will be your response? Will you doubt and consult your Leader or act on faith? Father Jesus don’t have to say this to you “Let the dead bury its own dead.”

Here is another angle you can look at the phrase “Let the dead bury their own dead.” If you have any dead situation that you had tried with your effort or help from people but to no avail. Could be marriage, business or things that are dead, cannot work anymore. Let them in the past. Look up to Father Jesus, HE who resurrected from the dead will make your life anew. You will never know but Father Jesus will definitely give you something better. Here are the Bible verses that can encourage you.

Luke 11:5-13 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? So if you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

Put your burden and worry on Father Jesus.

Matthew 11:30 “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Why wait until now leave CHC (City Harvest Church)?

Why  wait until now leave CHC (City Harvest Church)?

I know it is hard to believe. The most important reason is that Father Jesus had given me permission to leave this church as my works over here had been completed. I told my CG members about this, during our Lou Hei CNY  celebration.

Last year 2015, I shared with Calvin about a strange dream that I had. I dreamed that I was  feeding two small eagles with meat. They were very smelly. Then they suddenly grew up to huge eagles with enormous wings. And next thing I know, they brought me to another place.  Then, I woke up and I do not know where I am going to. I did not understood the dream.  But amazingly during sharing session, revelations came upon me “That I will be brought to another Spiritual battle ground”.  But at that point of time I did not know where, when and what mission I would be involved.

28 Jan 2016 – CHC Special meeting.  I was barred from attending the meeting which I looked forward to, as I had raised a question concerning if church can recover the $21m from CEH who had bought into multi millions dollars of share into shares of Transcu, a SGX-listed company. LAWRENCE RIKIO KOMO, husband of well-known personality, Nanz Chong, if court case is successful. I was told by CGL that my question wasn’t answered and the hideous reason as to why I was not allowed to attend the meeting was that my OM (Ordinary Membership) had been downgrade to POM (Potential Ordinary members).  I felt cheated and very unhappy, as there wasn’t any proper explanation as to why my membership was being downgraded. I had been faithful in church attendant and tithe for past 8 years. I even went to the extend of pleading with them to let me in and showed my OM card. The check-in supervisor wouldn’t bulge at  my request and even bother to just say that “System showed that you are POM and we don’t issue membership card anymore”.

For the wasted trip, I went home straight. While on the bus, I prayed to Father Jesus concerning this issue. And, just then my Senior Partner (our Holy Spirit) reminds me of my conversation with Father Jesus, end of 2014.  At that time, I decided to join a Cell Group because I was almost barred from attending the SOT HOMECOMING event.  At that time, the attending Pastor told me that because I was put in system as “Inactive Cell group member”, my benefit to attend SOT HOMECOMING cannot be given. But, I became a “persistent widow”. Pastor relented and let me attend after I used one or two bible verses. This was far cry from what Man-in-charge said on stage, sounds so welcoming “All those who had graduated or still attending SOT, sign up for this HOMECOMING”. 

Do you believe that our Holy Spirit will actually reminds you of things? John 14:26 “But when Father sends the Advocate as my representative – that is, the Holy Spirit – He will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.” At instant I remembered year end 2014 I spoke to Father Jesus and said “If after joining a Cell Group, if the church still treat me as non-member, I will have your permission to leave then church”

Really, I AM JUST A NUMBER IN THE CHURCH. Yet, church use these number to beef up their church number. Removing these “Potential visitors count”, the actual number easily falls below 8,000, just a guess. You take the total number minus “Active Cell Group member”.  Like me, maybe you would like to ask yourself this same question as is my title of this article, Why  wait until now leave CHC (City Harvest Church)? Perhaps you have real legitimate reason such as having an important role to play in church, or you are indebted to church or to someone for your salvation. But wait a minute,  no one, not the church gives you salvation.  Only Father Jesus does. Here is the hard truth, many received salvation at altar call but the “System Rules” converted the saved one into “System obeying zombie” that they would only obey and do what the leaders told them, other than that they were forbidden from being what they are supposed to be, i.e. getting direct visions, dreams and revelations from Father Jesus. This, had grieved our Holy Spirit and every meeting is no longer “Christ centred” but “Church system agenda”.  Nanz Chong, wrote 6/7/2012 “Why I stay in City Harvest Church” but already left CHC, and no mentioned of reason WHY? http://features.insing.com/feature/nanz-chong-komo-why-i-stay-in-city-harvest-church/id-d5533f00/

Why  wait until now leave CHC (City Harvest Church)?”

Certainly! The revelation is crystal clear to me, that the dream I had of 2 eagles bring me to another Spiritual battle is for me to move to another church as my work for this church “The woman whom Father Jesus still loves” is completed. Thanks Father Jesus for this revelations.

Actually, I intended to leave this church Dec 2014, the reason why I wrote to Pastor Sun. But since I could not meet her, as all of them are on “mountain top.  My Senior Partner, wanted me to give church and myself another chance, so I stayed on till now.

These were emails I sent to church.  Pending acceptance into my first Cell Group, at the same time, my mind was concerned that the group W204 aren’t suppose to exist anymore as was declared by the CGL during meeting with 5 of them, “If my this CG did not have Holy Spirit in contral, then this Cell Group will be no more”. Truth as prophesied, the CG had been dissolved. I join the new one, same people.

“Peace be with you” said the Son of Man with His eyes full of fire and a sword from His mouth that is so perfect that it cuts equally on both sides, slicing through the skin, flesh , bone and marrow, thereby splitting the soul and spirit. (This is Gift of Wisdom and Discernment my friend)

Note :  This email is for Senior Pastor or Sun,

About 4 years back, I had emailed and sent my 36 letter package to office but since I heard no news, it was probably ignored and discarded. Prophecies written within the notes had already came to past, these are only 2 that I will mention here.

Father Jesus showed me “Cupped hands but leaking sands when Father Jesus poured sands into it” 

“Father, why is the cupped hand leaking sands?” I asked.” HE said “Because the cupped hand has many holes below it.”

True enough, we have 2 exodus of people leaving CHC.

Also, I wrote about an article “Cutting the Rope” Now things unfolded, the 2 men who was on top dropped the bag and almost pulled everybody down after they fell, but Father Jesus had them “cut off” on behalf of the father,  so that others will not have their lives endangered. Now is man-in-charge turn to “Cut the rope” to save daughter and son.  But he is not heeding this calling.

Since he can’t hear from our Holy Spirit, Father Jesus had spoken to our Ambassador of God’s Love “Man-in-charge must be away for the Church.”  What our Holy Spirit meant is that man-in-charge must stay away from Church activities to do reflection for wrong things done and things he had swept under carpet. 

“Obedient is better than sacrifice” 

Here is the warning that cannot be ignored, he is that close to be being one of the statistics.

There is no New Earth and New heaven?

This preaching is not only unbiblical but also a blasphemy against prophecy of Father Jesus (See attached PDF for my full report).

Rev 21:1 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

Week 1

He preached as if our Holy Spirit is just a guest, he welcome Him as when he need Him in his thoughts, visions, dreams and your speech. That is totally nonsense, the matter of fact is that all of us are the Temple for Spirit of God and He should be the supreme authority to birth in us and radiates out thoughts, visions, dreams and speech to do His will, reaching out to people.

Week 2

He preached that there is  “No New Earth and New heaven” This theoretical preaching contradicts years of preaching and also a blasphemy to Prophecy of Father Jesus. He even mocked at residents of Spiritual beings currently residing in Heaven.

Week 3

Man-in-charge continue to preach that there is “No new earth and Heaven” He continue mock current resident in heaven again by saying “The concept that we will be “whimsy ghost spirits floating around in heaven” is also unbiblical.”

Man-in-charge must had seen the wrong earth! The earth that Apostle John seen “HAS NO MORE SEA”.

It is not only biblical wrong but also scientifically wrong, everybody knows that one day the sun will burn out and earth would not last, in the absent of  heat from Sun, all living things would not survive long before the Sun burn itself out, So how can a renewed earth theory hold?

I prayed that in Jesus’ name, man-in-charge, you will be received deliverance from “continuing wearing of Sunglasses or not being able to handle truth“.

Thanks for the preaching of Dr. Masaru Emoto  study of  Water. Although internet posts had said that this study is fake, not proven but I love it, it is in line with Bible message “That the devil can come to the courtyard and plant tares among the wheat.” This parable is about preaching false or wrong doctrines, that is, the Spiritual realm of infusing evil spirits into the mind sphere of listeners. Bad crystals formations.

Man-in-charge just cannot continue swept things under carpet, especially those wrong preaching, rectification is needed to restore “Good Spirits”.

These are some wrong preaching (on top of the above No new earth and heaven) :-

  1. Knowing that Derek Prince had died of depression. How can he wrote book that is of sound doctrine? 1st two third of Foundation truth is quite alright but the part where he theorized that Father Abraham is in Hell with Lazarus in funny saucer shaped hemisphere is flawed. How can he downgrade Father Abraham to be living in part of Hell?  Also, his book “Thou shall drive out demons” is also flawed. Father God has anger, Father Jesus showed his anger too when he chased out merchants and overturned their tables. Derek Prince theorized that “ALL anger is demonic.”
  2. The book Job, that God let bad things happened to him is to chasten his character. But the truth of the matter is more than that, a youth character Elihu was not preached and as a matter of fact, more than just chastening Job’s character, God actually prepared him to intercede for 3 of his friends and only after he done this, he received 2 folds increase in everything. This wasn’t preached.
  3. Preaching of Father Jesus want to be like rebellious Prophet Jonah was even more damaging. How could Father Jesus, who is God Himself, wanted to be like Jonah, a rebellious man prophet?

So, whosoever is manning the administrative work, the important 36 pages letter that I mailed to Man-in-charge about 4 years was not given to him?  If you love man-in-charge, forward this email to him.  I had already done my job as told by my Senior Partner.

Side notes, BTW. SOT Office rejected my 1st registration for Homecoming just because I was placed in “Inactive CG list”

I obeyed our Holy Spirit to became persistent Widow and gotten approved Homecoming and donated money to support SOT. This “System based” of doing things had caused many to leave church and undo many Holy Spirit installed tasks.

Subject : Attn: Senior Pastor, My personal testimony on how I get out of stress and revelations received with regard to spiritual battle. 

Hi Pastor XXXX/XXX

Thank you Senior Pastor for the weekend message, it was really a Union of Holy message. I had sent many testimonies email before and will continue but really CHC have to break down all walls of principalities and stop “the System” that is running the church. For example, Church would only take heed to mention testimonies endorsed by Cell Group Leader, many inspiring and even prophetic message by others were totally ignored. It doesn’t matter to me, I WILL CONTINUE TO DO HIS WORK AS INSPIRED BY HIM. Just like the preaching of Songs of Solomon (we must practice what we preach), Lord Jesus is outside trying to get “The woman” out of the comfort zone of the house.  As I had also written in Esharingportal.com, our church (as with other church) is a “COMPOSITE CHURCH”.  Here is the testimony message of how Father Jesus had moved me to not only pray but put into picture to help individual visualize the important of engaging the Angels in spiritual warfare :-

two_angels

My Senior Partner, our Holy Spirit said “We are at end time, heaven is now more open than ever before. You can’t fight spiritual with your knowledge and intelligent. You need to enlists the angels that had been assigned to you.” 

Pastor John Avanzini, Pastor Phil  Pringle, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, and Rev Stephan Munsey had strongly preached about the important of using Angels in these few days!

Brothers and Sisters, weekend message by Pastor Kong was really a Union of  Holy Message. I was moved, deeply troubled and groaned on 1 Jan 2011 and also I was selfish because I had already committed to fulfill the vision given by Father Jesus that I will be “First SOT graduate in Suntec City”, but the dark forces and principalities were at power at that time threatening to wrestle away our acquiring of Suntec Conv Centre. As was, moved in spirit, I prayed and positioned my two very powerful angels, Glitter Gold and Fiery Red (as I had already knew them, they gave me prophesied vision of Church location in marina area). You can see my drawing is hastily drawn in poor proportion because it was done during such urgency. This weekend service by Pastor Kong, preached about “The sword of the Lord and the sword of Gideon.” As can be seen one of my angel is carrying the sword. So my (our) prayer had came true, we secured Suntec Conv Centre as joint owner and I was one of the First Graduate in Suntec City as prophesied. I had even created a Facebook fanpage for it.  Praise the Lord. Glory to Father Jesus.

From: sa278@hotmail.com To: info@chc.org.sg Subject: Important message for Senior Pastor/XXX XX, Pastor Dominic Yeo must be the 3rd speaker who spoke the same words our Holy Spirit had revealed to me Date: Thu, 13 Sep 2012 19:29:14 +0800

(PA, please note this email is for Pastor. There is no other way for me to speak to him, so only with this email).   Hi Pastor XXXX/XXX XX,   Greetings, Peace be with you. The day before Pastor Dominic Yeo speak in church, I looked at his profile. “Strong in Prophetic ministry.” So I spoke to Father God Jesus “Lord, you had put words in my mouth and I had posted in FB, surely if Dominic really move in Prophetic ministry, you can cause him to speak the words of confirmation to the congregation because, I am a nobody (no way to reach people higher up, CGL curtail my words) and I was getting persecuted for what I had written.” Here is part of what I wrote as inspired by HIM in FB:-   28/7/12  **Sometimes Lord Jesus allow you to sink deeper just like Peter, that way only name you’ll call is Jesus.** Jesus must be your first love.   True enough, everything Dominic speak on Saturday is the 100% precep by precep matching of Union of the Holy message given by HIM to me.   A bit about myself, I accepted Christ through Billy Graham Crusade in 1978 in the stadium. Then I joined my Airforce Friend’s Presbyterian Church in Prinsep Street. Then I lost faith because Matt 7:7 “Ask and it shall be given” for certain things didn’t materialized. Sometimes 1983-1984 I backslide.  Then, 2nd Dec 2007 Vivi Lim brought me to CHC in Expo, I was convicted and first one to run to the altar. Praise the Lord, I was reborn. My testimony written in esharingportal.com 4 A4 pages.   Being in Cell Group for less than 2 months, I discovered couple of wrong things running “System based Cell Group”, my testimony to glorify Lord Jesus was being abruptly cut short by clap offering, then I realised that each member allowed only 2 minutes to speak. I prayed to Father God Jesus, why it has to be this way. Our Holy Spirit then instructed and inspired me to sponsor a blogging web site to allow people to post their testimonies since we are all constrained by timing and space. www.esharingportal was born. Then as I moved on, I discovered CGL for W204 CGL was very oppressive in the way he handle members, certainly he looked at me as a rebellious member because I pointed out to him things that are wrong.   It is very sad, while our Church growth is astonishing because we build a church without 4 walls but deep inside within the individual Cell Group and Church there are many erected  invisble walls which I also called “Whitewashed Walls.” The second article I wrote and posted on 5th March 2008 reveals much:   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   My Senior Pastor, I spent much effort compiled and printed about 36 pages of micro detailed report to you, have you received and read? It is ironic that because of what is happening now that thousands of Church Members start to obeyed Lord Jesus and pen their testimonies in Facebook “Crossover testimony page” by Alexus Phyllis Koo. When I created Esharingportal.com, it was my desire to have church members to write their testimony, the two Cell group Leaders didn’t support, I SMS, emailed, spoke to many and given out name cards and nobody bother. So I gave thanks to Lord Jesus for this event so that many by the thousands came out to input their testimony.  Pastor Kong, your goodself preached about the Weeping woman broke alabaster jar of perfume and wet HIS feet with tears and these testimonies which should had happened 4 years ago (when I sponsor the web site) had to make to happened by Lord Jesus himself is like a sweet aroma to Father God Jesus. Praise the Lord!   So, Pastor, you had said to the congregation that you had drunk enough, sink enough. I don’t know, really have to ask our Holy Spirit. 28/7/12  **Sometimes Lord Jesus allow you to sink deeper just like Peter, that way only name you’ll call is Jesus.** Jesus must be your first love.   End of 2010, I prayed prostrate intercede for board members who were involved in the case. Father God Jesus gave me this Bible verse :- Rev 12:15  “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.”   So I prayed for revelation to this message and immediately Wisdom helped understood the message “Okay, Partner so there are two way in which the church can influence the earth to swallow the flood. Let’s see what Church will do.”   CHC Church, Man-in-charge declared “We choose LOVE.” in the opening celebration of her new location Suntec Convention Hall. While in the midst of jubilation and hand clapping, my Senior Partner asked me: “How deep is our love?”   So I spoke to Pastor of JE about this revelation, and also two young men who had crossed over to the other side, hope he can bring up to the church level so that I can disclose more detail of the methods employed by these  “Accusation agents” lure our church members away to the other side. But unfortunately, my report was swept under the carpet or curtail as I had said. Then follow on, we lost another exodus of members. Very sad.   In the mail package that I mail to you about 1.5 years ago, Pastor, (in white envelope), I mentioned that in order to receive the Golden Key, you have to operate the many Red Keys first. The Golden Key of deliverance is like a treasure box, can only be open if many padlocks are released by the Red Keys.   What are the Red Keys? “If admitting something that one had not done wrong, then that is foolishness. But if admitting and seek repentance for wrong doings than that is deliverance.” The Bible also said “He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.” Matt 10:41   Father God Jesus always faithfully dispatch the right person to help you. Angels assigned the role of ministering to you. Prophets had been the second rank in the 5 fold ministry, they advice and point mistakes to Kings and authority in OT, NT and End time, only two prophets will be around. So for the past 23 years did the church diligently received the prophets sent by Father God Jesus to you? Or were they being slew silent as depicted in the “Parable of the Vine dressers” Matt 21:33-40   1. Sorry Sun, in Pastor’s blog concerning his defense of China Wine advertisement I had read the post and comments. I found it vicious and bad. So I intended to continue whacking those people who attack viciously but our Holy Spirit caused me to post otherwise (I could not remember exact wording) “The revival activity is now shifted very strongly to Asia, much work is need in Asia.” That is the strong hint that Sun should be back to Asia, but Lord Jesus had to make this event happen so that you’ll come back. When Sun have intestine problem I prayed and our Holy Spirit caused me to groaned and I specifically prayed for an Angel to be sent to healed Sun. It took more than 2.5 months for Pastor Kong to share this supernatural intervention of God to the congregation. Why took so long to testify for Father God Jesus? I can recalled the other Angel was speaking to the other “Are we here yet? Oh we are here, is all those slimy crystal the toxic? 1-2-3 let’s us push out.” But not complete purging of all toxic, seems like Sun had to see doctor once 4 to 5 months. 2.  Sorry to Sun, I love CHC too much, 4 instances of  feedback from people attended services (AC2009, AC2010 and SOT2011) said same things “Why are your members wearing T-Shirts depicting demonic printing, sex, drugs, skeleton, snakes tatoos.” I prayed to Father God Jesus that you will not have anything to do with the demonic tatoo products anymore. Sorry, that the shop had to close. Hope no more involvement in demonic art work of Tatto man.   God Bless   Regards Stanley Tan – HP XXXXXXXX

Subject : Attn: Senior Pastor, My personal testimony on how I get out of stress and revelations received with regard to spiritual battle.

Hello Senior Pastor,

Thank you very much for having brought in Professor DR. ROBI SONDEREGGER.  I thought it would be good for me to share this testimony to all our loving brothers and sisters. And

the title I used as inspired by HIM “Hello Doctor I don’t need medication”, I think professor Dr, Robi Songeregger would agreed.

Actually, it took great courage for me to write the testimony, it was mooted by Elim Chew on her blog because June 2010, a student committed suicide and she blogged to appeal

for people come out and share on how to get out of stress. I pray very hard and get the go ahead to write my testimony as inspired by HIM. So, I had to get into my emotion in

order to write as accurately as possible. Just then, while writing my testimony another famous Korean actor and singer Park Yong-ha  committed suicide on June 30, 2010.  At that

point I was lamenting, life is so short, being rich is not everything. Anyway, I managed to complete my testimony (see attached PDF), and posted out to Elim Chew.

http://www.esharingportal.com/eshare/viewstory.php?sid=129 

The testimony which HE had inspired me to write somehow agreed completely with what Professor Dr Robi Sonderegger had taught us for the past 2 days.

  1. When a person is having tremendous stress, he or she cannot connect the frontal lobe of the brain to reason out things, so he must seek professional help for medication.
  2. It takes oneself to have positive thinking to get out of stress.
  3. The evil spirit speaking into the mind of stressful people is real, it is very persistence in prompting and challenging people to commit suicide.
  4. On the flip side of science, Psychology and Neoro  science, demonic activity can be the cause of mental illness.
  5. Emphasised the important of walking along with people even though they had recovered from stress.

Today 1,585 had read this article. Applause to those who read, I think they needed great courage. At the end of the message, there is flash message links to biography of those celebrities who committed suicide.

http://www.esharingportal.com/eshare/viewstory.php?sid=129 

I don’t know, it seems that this article had already prophetically mentioned that Cultural Mandate has to be the Crossover Project for Korea. Maybe that is the reason why Senior Pastor

Kong had to be more and more involved in Korea. And I don’t know how many people had actually joined hand with me to pray for suicidal demonic spirit control to be broken in Korea.

Praise and Glory to Father God Jesus! The curse has been broken! It has been about 2 years and there is no report of famous Korean actor or singer commit suicide.

Note:  I had downloaded videos and these two are very good for our seminar purpose.  Remembering Daul Kim.flv  (she showed symptoms of stress) and Best_Illusion.flv (how the mind can be tricked by the sight of the eyes).

Proof of all my works for the church : – 

Emailed to JE Supervisor and highlighted to him that Intro is not biblically correct, contradicts what Father Jesus said “Go to the highway to find the good and bad for HIS wedding feast.” Also, I make the book mark for all the church Pastor to celebration Father’s Jesus prophecy for the house to be located at Marina area. There is no feedback nor thanksgiving for this celebration to thanks Father Jesus.

Prayed for 2 groups of Anointed Christians to share their testimony in CHC.

  1. Janice and Sonia Lee, Australian Korean twin whose mother had gone to the Lord in heaven due to cancer. Their link were miraculously posted in my Facebook link, and at that time, I had already witnessed My mom and sister Ah Bong in Heaven. As revealed by my Senior Partner, the twin sisters can bring power of anointing for healing and inform people that “Heaven is Real”. Even their mom is dying, they still can joyfully said “Mom you are so fortunately to be able to see Jesus next week”.  True enough, Janice and Sonia Lee came to CHC on 9/7/2011. My prayer answered. 
  2. Retha Mcpherson and Aldo, due to freak car accident, her elder son Aldo skull was cracked open, in coma had super natural experience with Lord Jesus in Heaven. Her life was completely transformed and this was what she said in her book ““I don’t mean to discredit  my husband when I say this, but both he and I were spiritually dead and until that point we’d never had such experiences in the Holy Spirit” pg 27. and Aldo says on page 71, “You are the reason why He send me back, I didn’t want to come back, but He sent me back so that you can be reason for His return.“ Prayer wasn’t answered, perhaps church not ready for mighty revival. As Man-in-charge already his pulpit is only reserved for accredited preacher ministers.

Technology is so advance nowadays, you can delete anything on PC but still can be dugged out. Persecutors dugged out the dark side if Man-in-charge. Very easy for him to preached that we must be patience with God but contrary to it, he was unforgiving and mean!

Big heart Big man

Big Heart be-gets Big Man

Big Heart Big Man

My Senior partner prompted me to write this article after my second dinner out with my first CG member on 28/4/15. I had shared on how to be a bigger man by being a forgiving person. I explained that if there is anyone who had done wrong to you on purpose, it would be very hard to forgive because in your heart, you would be complaining silently “But he or she did it on purpose.” I knew it is very difficult, especially, if the person did wrong to you on purpose again and again. You have this sub-conscious fear of what if the person do wrong to you it again.

I was actually sharing my own experience, and it is hard, even though I had willingly bowed down to speak to the extend of inviting them for coffee by displaying the attitude as though I did many wrongs, seeking forgiveness, hoping to be able to find out what wrong I might had done to had caused them to stay away from me. All, would rather avoid meeting to speak things out, and conveniently gave the excuses of being too busy to meet. But Father Jesus had taught me well, and I had shared the same thing with my CG members. I said, look at Father Jesus, even those people had put him to death, parted his clothing, and cast lots, HE said “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” Those words of ultimate mercy and grace was spoken by Father Jesus not just for those Roman soldiers but for all people, especially the Jews who put HIM to death.

By meditating on these spoken words of Father Jesus, a revelation was given to me to write this article titled “Big heart, Big man.”

It is no coincidence that Senior Pastor Kong is currently preaching about increasing capacity. We called this the united flow of of our Holy Spirit rhema words, my Senior Partner gave me this wisdom words “Union of Holy Message”. It is the living words that flows through the hearts of all in the “Spiritually connected people”, birthed by our Holy Spirit. Our Holy Spirit, our comforter, our counsellor, our Teach All teacher, our Wisdom, is telling us to love one another, forgive one another and perhaps, there is someone or group of people that you once spoke to but not any more because of offences. One thing, all must remember, LOVE don’t break nor separate people. Love brings all people together.
What is this term Union of the Holy Message?

I am glad that you asked. This term was given to me by my Senior Partner, our Holy Spirit. It is about oneness in the rhema words spoken by Father God Jesus. In the end time, where spiritual battle is super intense, there is no time for anything else, less talk about cultural mandate. I was personally lead by my Senior Partner into one of these “intense spiritual battle”. Seriously speaking, it was so intense that I have had no time to think of what to pray for, I just kept on speak-in-tongue in prayer with the oneness of heart, mind and soul rebuking the demons and evil spirits until they left one by one and thanks Father God Jesus for the guidance of our Holy Spirit, I won the battle. As a matter of fact at these age, only two prophets will remain on earth to deal with Anti-Christ.
Revelation 11:3: “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days.”

Aright, back to our main topic, in what way can a person have bigger heart?
Before I could explain in full details as per biblical text, I have to make sure that you understand what is the meaning of the heart mention here. The heart that we are talking about is not the physical heart that pump the blood to circulate within the body that keeps you alive. It is spiritual. As a matter of fact, non physical heart can be interchange with soul in its meaning. I think it is hard for all to agreed that it is interchangeable. Let’s us look at some Chinese idioms and parallel bible verses that signified the same meaning.

About greedy heart
The idiom that described greediness “Human heart is like a snake trying to swallow an elephant”. snake_swallow_elephantA person’s greed is like a snake that seeks to swallow an elephant. Let’s look at biblical equivalent.
Isaiah 56:11 “The dogs have a mighty appetite; they never have enough. But they are shepherds who have no understanding; they have all turned to their own way, each to his own gain, one and all”
Also, the soul or heart need to have light.
Look at this black_heart “Black hearted people” It means, evil or bad people. You should know very well that this idiom is not talking about the heart that pumps blood. Any heart that turns black would meant that the person is dead! Here is the bible verse that matches.

Matthew 6:22-23 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!”

Hence, if your soul is without light, it is in darkness, participating in evil ways.
The eyes mentioned here seems to be the “entry point for light.” which is the soul or mind state.

How to have Big heart to become Big man?

First of all due to Adam’s sins, all our heart is very self conscious; tends to be selfish, naturally rebellious against the Holy righteousness of God, and when greed and lusts overfilled a person, she or he tends to do evils, black_heart “Black hearted people” so to speak. So, in another words our heart are corrupted. That’s why Lord Jesus said, you must be reborn.
John 3:3 ” “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

What do you mean by born again or reborn? Well, I am glad that you ask.
2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” The “old man” in your had past away and you are given a new reborn spirit man that is yoked with our Holy Spirit.

That is to say that you have a new Spirit man in you, yoked with our Holy Spirit. Do you know that you have an old man living in you? You have to be reborn in order to be a resident in heaven. I had witnessed and defeated this old man in another person in one of the spiritual battle that my senior partner had brought me thanks.

Here are various evident of you being reborn:

1. Wisdom is in you.
When our Holy Spirit enters your soul (or heart) and makes you HIS temple, HE brought in within you the Wisdom and Holy righteousness of God. Such is the evident of being baptised by our Holy Spirit or truly a reborn Christian.
2. You care things of Spiritual revelations.
John 3:6-7 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. “Do not be amazed that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
3. Your heart is enlarged.
Matthew 22:37-40 37 “Jesus said unto him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” That means you can have a bigger heart to ultimately able to contain All the Laws and instructions from Prophets. You have our Holy Spirit in full control of your life, able to diligently obey laws, and receives, visions, dreams and revelations of prophecies without need of any prophet to tell you these things. Your ability to forgives and love even the enemies who had offended you is enlarged greatly. In another word, you already contained “All law and prophets”.
Many Christians were very enthusiastic going about at doing the works of God. But seriously if all these works were done without love it amounts to Nothing! Unknowingly, individual may had indulged in the self denial, pride of accomplishment, or idolised people in certain way trying to mimic someone they admire and idolised human methodology.

1 Corinthians 13:3 “If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.”

Love encompasses everything. Here is a true case of a young rich man that Father Jesus spoken to in his heart more than 2,000 years ago. If this young is in today’s era, he would had qualified as Cell Group Leader, Zone Supervisor or even Pastor. All these qualities that he have fits the ideal candidate for church to appoint him as leader. He has all the criteria, rich, obedience, been in church ministries, well educated and committed. Oh, Church love so much to  use these people over other eligible candidates, sad facts!  But do the Kingdom of God needs people in this calibre? Listen to what Jesus said to the young rich man in purple robe when he asked of Jesus how to have eternal life. Jesus told the young man that he had to keep all the commandments. Listen to what the young man replied Father Jesus, as a matter of fact, many modern day Christians would had said this same thing in their heart.
Matthew 19:21-22 “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?” Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth. My personal experience, had make me understand well in term of forgiveness. “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?” Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.”
It is very easy for one to say and claim that he or she had kept “All the commandments”. Looking at one side of the coin, I would like to congratulate the individual making such faith claim and perhaps encourage but here is the real acid test. What if things were done without love? And is for self recognition, self benefits and with underlying motives?

Enlarge heart to be a big man.

In the next bible verse, I would reveal to you how can enlarge your heart so that you can be a big man. The answer had already been provided by the bible message in 4 sentences.
Matthew 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

To fully understand this bible verse, you have to understand the small and big and even the first will be last and last will be first.
This greatest commandment really are talking about processes:-
1. You must love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your mind. Here you can see 3 components being mentioned as if they are separate and yet are one, just like the Trinity. Notice the different? The second greatest commandment is “Love your neighbour as yourself.” Here the context doesn’t mention loving your neighbor with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. It would seems that loving God is more demanding as compared to loving people.
2. In filling of Holy Spirit in your heart. Here is the understanding, only if you had been baptised by the Holy Spirit, then you can have the complete infilling of the wholesome pure, unselfish love of our Holy Spirit. Only HE can gives you the ability to love Father God Jesus with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.

3. You have all the law and prophets abide in your heart. And here is the acid test, only if are truly in control by the power of our Holy Spirit, then loving your neighbour is natural, nobody have to remind you, nobody have to instruct you to forgive and love your enemies. As you should had already know that you are the temple of God, with these greatest love in your heart, your capacity is so large that you can contain all of them  “All the law and the prophets hang”. That is to say, you obey the law as natural as drinking water and you don’t need any prophet to point out your mistakes or gaves you directions. Notice that the word “prophets” is in plural. Different assigned prophets will be the mouth piece for God to speak to you and prophesy in different aspects of your life. But if you have greatest commandments in you, you are a prophet yourself.

I had been in Church long enough to notice, Christian friends are not talking to another, and people leaving and moving from one Cell Group to another. Here is the fact of matter, there is lack of love, evident by unforgiveness. You cannot claim to have forgiven people and yet not talking to the person.
The behaviour is exactly the same, the rich young man who replied to Father Jesus more than two thousand years ago “All these I have kept” in respond to Jesus’ answer “Jesus said, “YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT MURDER; YOU SHALL NOT COMMIT ADULTERY; YOU SHALL NOT STEAL; YOU SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS; Honor your father and mother. Love your neighbor as yourself.'” Matthew 19:18-19. If you loved your neighbor more than yourself, then you will not bother with whatever stones or dirts or shits thrown at you, you would care more for the well being of others. Your eyeballs is not turned inward to see your own hurts, rehearse it and go into self pity, result in angry and holding back your God’s given love.

The Big and Small, you are the temple of God.
“You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.…” John 15:4
Clearly stated, you must be willing to be humble as little children, ie being small to be accepted in Kingdom of God, and that is because Father Jesus is willing to die for your sins even you are still sinners, the unconditional love. Do you run Cell Group with many conditions attached before you can accept a members? Thanks God for Father Jesus’ unconditional love that don’t put any unwritten rules “the whitewashed wall”  before accepting you. Only if you are truly reborn, Father Jesus will abide in you. And this helps you to enlarge your heart capacity to be filled with pure unconditional love.

Are you grown up taking solid food or still sucking milk?

You have to grow up like Father Jesus if you really walk the life of Christ. Luke 2:52 “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” If you do not grow up, your capacity to forgives is very limited, the old man is in the way to tell you selfishly not to forgives people who had done wrongs to you.

A Cell Group should be viewed as a person. She should be growing up in “wisdom”, symbolical meaning of revelation knowledge, “stature” symbolical meaning of increase in number and gaining favor with God and man is fully understood.

With the big heart, you can be a Big Man.
I would like to thank my CG members for having fellowship dinner that gave me this revelation to write about. All praise and glory to Father Jesus.
28/5/15 – Shared with Calvin and Benjamin on how to make peace with the past.
– Father Jesus said while hung on cross, crucified “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”
– Hard to forgive if you have the mindset that provoked you to think that these people had offended you on purpose and they will never repent. Bible verse shared “It is not the blood and flesh that we are against, it is the principalities, prince and evil of the dark forces that we are against.”
– How to improve relationship? If you bumped into someone you knew, but refused to acknowledge or talk to the person, then you had not make peace with your past. Hence, the past will continue to haunt you because you are not able to act out your humanity, grace and love. I DO NOT advocate “Patch up relationship” but strongly encourage  “Complete renewal for relationship” which is biblical “New wine in new wineskin.”
1/5/15 – Visited Father, 5th sister complained about father and she said how angry she was with him and also not happy with the way Laura and father quarrelled. I told her that it is a privilege to have and able to practice Self-control. I further advise her not to take-in negative happenings and act angrily, it is not good for health. She should learn how to laugh out at father’s silliness. She challenged me and said that it is so easy to say, as I don’t stay in the same house as father. But I told her that it is up to her if she want to be happy or sad, to take things easy or to be angry over things, knowing that can’t do much to change situation, esp those events already happened.
2/5/15 – Pastor Kong preached about enlarging one’s capacity which is in Union with what I wanted to write.
Mark 7:20-23 ESV / 56 helpful notes

And he said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”
You can be a forgiving person and yet not a loving person if you did not help the person change his way by pointing out his or her wrong doings. Due to fallen nature of man, the constant offender may not be fully aware of the wrong doings, maybe due to reason such as  “since everybody is doing it, so it is aright for me to do it also”. You need to point out to them that it is wrong doing, as an act of love, to help them to be a better person.

Addon notes, posted on Facebook 25/7/15

Pastor Aries wants me to tell those who did not attend Bishop Dale “Manup”, missed a big deal. What a Union of Message! The article I published last week “Big Heart. Big Man” is message by Pastor Kong. Increase capacity. Bishop Dale, Manup. Same bible message preached by Dale, he spoke about heart that needs light through eye and also about Jesus says “Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”

Share revelation, Wisdom say “Small man are easily upset by small things and they drained their energy focussing on small little things.”
“Big man pay attention to big things and handle small things in completion by each strife.” God bless.

Father Jesus helped me to enlarge my heart to forgives even people done outright wrong.

I can’t say too much about myself but really I AM what I AM.  I had to thanks God for making me a helpful person.  You see, once during my military service with Air Force, my brother-in-law needed to take loan from bank for his university study but need a guarantor. My father-in-law had owned much money especially to the loan sharks during that time. I remembered, during the Chinese engagement ceremony where we have to distribute cakes to friends and relative, he tried to get me to bring my IC to meet a loan shark so that he can loan money, but I refused. Thanks God that I refused. Being bonded to military service, I am not suppose to sign any guarantor paper. My wife asked if I want to do it as I could had to face serious punishment, even court martial. But my reply was that someone, especially, my brother-in-law needed help, then, I must help regardless of the risk.

Then another year, my sister-in-law also needed to take loan from bank and I too signed bearing the risk of being charged. But thanks God somehow, the military didn’t find out.

So both of them graduated, earning tons of money, I am happy for them. Silently, I told myself that I had helped them in their achievement.

Sadly, I think they had forgotten how I risked my career back then to helped them. So perhaps, I hope, yah, I hope that they do remember my kindness. I started my own web design and hosting business and I had secured a rental shop at Golden Landmark. Unfortunately, I could not secure the business loan from Spring Singapore. Their criteria is that business must have turnover of at least $60,000 per year. That sounds illogical, if I can have this kind of turnover, I wouldn’t need to take loan!

So I turned to my brother-in-law for help, for unsecured loan of $50,000 but after discussing with his wife. He said “I could only extend $10,000 to you. Take, even if you don’t make it, I can write off this loan,” So, I have to take it but that could not help much. To me my thinking at that time was like “it is a curse money” as if telling me “Your business will failed, I willing to lost $10,000 to you.”

I had no choice but to bit my tongue and continue business as I could not break my rental contract. I was really sad, none of the in-laws, family member visit my shop, while my neighbor who opened his shop after me have had streams of relatives visiting him and friends celebrated with him. But NONE! none of my my in-law came. Really looking down on my business venture? I thought, at least show some support by showing their face; considering how I had helped them when they needed to go to university but alas, I was quite sad as I pondered “Kindness had been repaid with unkindness”.

So, I was bitter perhaps, feeling cheated, looked down upon. I got out of Air Force is because of depression. It was really strange, when under depression, I had a psychiatrist helping me, only he can help me with medication too. Relatives and friends would attend to me, trying to “talk me out of thinking too much”,  boy! does that help? Wow! there was so much love in the air.  But after I got discharged from the Air Force, I went into Real Estate business, back then, I thought as property agent, I should have my own website. So I hocked on online web site publisher Homestead. Then I was daring to break codes and experiment. And dah! dah! I run my own web design, domain registrar and hosting business. People DO NOT understand that a person needs help even more after their recovering from depression, and to support him or her to get up with new life. But what happened? The love and concern suddenly disappeared???

I folded up my business after 2.5 years due to lack of funding, liquid cash for advertisement and engage contractor.  My brother-in-law would have many celebrations, birthday for this person and that person, mother’s day, father’s day, etc. I refused to attend to any of these as I felt it is a kind of showy. I did not join them for any such celebration, mostly held in a restaurant, for about 2 years, Then God showed up.

Luke 23:34 “Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.” And the soldiers gambled for his clothes by throwing dice.”

Yes, this I fully understood, you can’t help a person if you don’t tell them of their wrong doings. Do you know what? “You can be a very forgiving person but not a loving person if you don’t help a person correct their wrong doings“,

Thanks, Father Jesus for helping enlarge my heart to be a bigger man, HIS grace is sufficient for me. Even though HE was fully aware of the intentional wrong doing of those people and yet HE said “Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing.” That open my understanding further, that in this fallen world, after Adam sinned, people are really influence by the principalities, of dark forces and they did not know what they are doing, sometimes unintentionally harm and hurt you. I had put aside everything and I had been attending my brother-in-law’s invitation for celebration since then. I had put aside everything, let every action of mine be lead by my Senior Partner (our Holy Spirit).

Does not matter if you are a Christian or not, I encourage you to look through your phone address book and start to call friends and connections, that somehow, something or some events might had cause you guys to be apart and not speaking to one another. I would like you to put aside every differences, unhappiness, hurts, offences, bad thoughts about the person and call them for coffee meet up.  “Forgive them, for they don’t know what they are doing”.

For Christian Cell Group members, call your past friends whom you had not spoken for a long time.   You ought to love one another, don’t you?  John 13:34 “So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.” Salah.

Lastly, parallel Chinese idioms,

Big people Big grace

Big People have Big Grace to forgive
