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!

The scales that dropped off Saul’s eyes

(Published in FB 18th Jan 2014, 0025hrs

What do you think when the Bible said  “And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.” (Acts 9:18) ? This is kind of fancinating, how would Saul (later called Paul) who had good eye sights, before he met Jesus on the way to Damascus, suddenly became ill and have scales on his eyes that caused him to be blind?

I had been pondering on the meaning of this Bible passage “Is this really a scales like that of fish fell off from Saul’s eyes or was it figurative meaning?”

There is nothing in the words of the sacred text which compels us to think of literal scales. (in Bible passage, however, a literal flaking-off of foreign substance is meant, scales dropped from Paul’s eyes). We have here rather a description of the sensation which terminated the three days’ period of blindness which the apostle suffered after his meeting with the risen Lord on the road to Damascus. Then, apostle himself does not use this expression in his own graphic description of the same experience: “In that very hour I looked upon him” (Acts 22:13). The phrase has, however, come into English, for we speak of “scales falling from one’s eye” when we mean a sudden illumination or remembrance or a dissipation of harassing doubt.

And one morning, a breakthrough as I was jogging and doing quiet time, my Senior Partner, our Holy Spirit, reveals to me that it is “Figurative or symbolical meaning.” It is now crystal clear to me the meaning of this Bible passage.

Especially those who had gone through Bible school/study, they should know that  in those OT days, the Greeks, Jews likes to use figurative or symbolical way of saying thing to represent a broader meaning of events or messages.

Here are some facts that you  can determine if “Scales that dropped off Saul’s eye” is more of figurative meaning or just literal meaning:-

1.  Apostle have had perfect vision persecuting Christians before he met Jesus on the way to Damascus. Why would Father Jesus put scales over Saul’s eyes to had caused him to be blind for 3 days?

2. Book of Acts is written by Apostle Luke and Paul himself did not mention about literal event of scales dropped from his eyes. (Acts 22:13).

3. Here is the idiom meaning of “Scales dropped from eyes” – if scales dropped from someone’s eyes, they are suddenly able to understand truth.

Example in the Songs of Song of Solomon Chap 4 and 7

Your eyes are like doves behind your veil.

… Your hair is like a flock of goats…

Your teeth are like a flock of newly shorn ewes…

Your lips are like a scarlet thread,

Your temples are like a slice of pomegranate…

“…Your neck is like the tower of David

built with rows of stones

on which are hung a thousand shields…

If a reader could not interprete and understand the figurative meaning of this beautiful language, then the woman being pictured is very very ugly. As depicted in picture, taken from http://www.acts17-11.com/snip_song.html

ugly_woman_song_solomon

Songs of Solomon

 

You should be able to picture a beautiful woman if you’d understood the figurative meaning of the woman discribed by King Solomon, i.e.visualised a beautiful woman with a very well refined or almost shining neck, as of tower meaning of good length and with long hair with strenght that runs down with like that of those advertisement for shampoo where the model would dropped their hair and beautifully fall down like goats rushing down the hill and straightening up.

So what is the meaning and why it was being discribed that Saul received sight after having the scales fell off from his eyes? 

Perhaps to explain it in better clarity, you can imagine picking up the most clear fish scales pair that you can find and put in onto your eyes like contact lens. Even how clear the fish scales maybe, they can never provide clear vision, it is blurry, marked by the growth ring of the fish throughout the years.  It is true, all of us, living in the fallen world,  DO NOT have clear eye sights, we do not know where we are going, everything is of the worldview vision, blurry and full of deceits.  But mercy from Lord Jesus that Saul had met HIM on the road, and he couldn’t see because Lord Jesus was  in the process of healing his pairs of sinfuls eyes. Then on the day, healing came, Saul became Paul and his sight is restored to see the Kingdom of God, his perspective is completely changed, he can see clearly his destination and the vision set forth by Lord Jesus. The people said that Saul is a complete changed man, “And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.” (Acts 9:18).  Understand the meaning “it had been scales”? If one interprete laterally, it would meant Saul eyes were specially make from scales. That sounds funny wouldn’t it?

So, my dearest Christian brothers and sisters, Do you have the scales removed or fell off from your pair of eyes?  If you had not, that’s the reason why you aren’t seeing any visions from Father Jesus and you aren’t sure where you are heading, the worst part is that you had not received deliverance without knowing. You had grown up in Church, do the “good works” and learned to be a “good Christian”.  This is typical of many Christians who was like the rich man in purple robe.

Once you have that “Scales dropped from your eyes” You will receive Gift of Wisdom which enable you to see and inteprete vsions and dreams.

Jesus on How the Rich Get to Heaven (Mark 10:17-25)

17 And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? 18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother. 20 And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth. 21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.22 And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions.23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! 24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. 

Here is the serious notes from Father Jesus:

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 7:21

 The message is very clear, if you, being a Christian and called Jesus “Lord, Lord” but did not do the will of Father God, then you cannot enter Kingdom of Heaven.”

    Many still could not understand the true meaning of “doing the will of Father God”.  All I can said is that you got to have direct Vision, dreams and revelations from Father God Jesus, in this way you can be very sure of doing the will of God.  But if you are like the rich young man as depicted in Mark 10:17-25. Then you probably doing the “will as prescribed by your leaders or pastors” and  NOT FROM THE SOVEREIGH GOD FATHER JESUS.

Addon notes: 31/1/15 Union of Holy message, Rev Dr A.R. Bernard preached the same things. He spoke about, church people judging people through theirs lens. We need to take off these distorted “fish scale lens” or do adjustment to lens that is prescribed by God. Just like glasses or contact lens, if dirty you need to clean it to see clearer. Much better is your sight is perfect and don’t need to wear any lens or glasses. 

Stanley Tan (Posted in FB) both Rev Dr A.R. Bernard preached exact same thing I wrote as inspired by HIM.   

Dr A.R. Bernard in the house. He speaks about people make judgement by viewing through dirty lens. Luke Chapter, Jesus spoke about parable of putting light on lampstand. In retrospect, I once wrote about “The scales that dropped from Paul’s eyes” I said that, that is symbolic meaning of spiritual blindness where we see through blurry lens of fish scale. Bernard mentioned the parable of good Samaritan. It is same as people who “wore sunglasses. Praise the Lord for Union of Holy message.Amazing Union of Holy message. From AR Bernard, lens and good Samaritan. From Pastor Kong, same passage I posted this morning “Who Cares!” Jesus said about he was hungry, no one feed him. In so much as you did to the little one, you did it on to me.

Added note 23/1/16

Wearing sunglasses is different from scales dropped from your eyes in that you knew your wrong doings but hide your pupil from people’s penetrative view. YOU CAN’T HIDE YOUR LYING EYES.

God mountains, Man mountains

God’s mountains, Man’s mountains

God mountains Man mountain

God mountains Man mountain

Mountains are mentioned more than 500 times in the Bible.  While they have significant symbolic value, mountains first and foremost were part of physical landscape of biblical times.  Mountains have a logical religious symbolism for biblical cultures since they are “closer to God” who was believed to dwell in the sky and the heavens.  As a result, God often reveals himself on the mountain top and we hear people today talk about their own “mountain top” experiences in their spiritual journeys.  And people are getting more innovative in getting doctrine of mountain as the pinnacle of life. Tower of Babel, can be seen as the very beginning of mountain.

In the Chinese ,mountains were referred to as divine and even there were fairy tales of super natural happenings and even mountains became objects of worship or had been the important destinations for pilgrimage such as the Sacred Mountains of China are divided into several groups. The Five Great Mountains refers to five of the most renowned mountains in Chinese history,  and they were the subjects of imperial pilgrimage by emperors throughout ages. Although not traditionally categorized as either Taoist or Buddhist mountains, these five mountains have a strong presence of both, especially that of Taoism. The group associated with Buddhism is referred to as the Four Sacred Mountains of Buddhism, and the group associated with Taoism is referred to as the Four Sacred Mountains of Taoism. But none of these have any historical record of any God’s presence or intervention.

A.  Let’s talk about God’s mountain

1.  Mount Ararat at 16,854 feet.

The the flood and Noah’s Ark being build. Genesis Chapter 6 gives four reasons why God sent the flood:-

  1. ‘The wickedness of man was great in the earth’ (V.5)
  2. ‘Every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually’ (V.5).
  3. ‘The earth was filled with violence’ (V.11)
  4. ‘The earth … was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth’ (V.12).

It is astounding to consider that in the tenth generation from Adam the human race had become so wicked, evil, violent and corrupt that it was not fit to go on living. And of all mankind only four men and four women were spared, because they did not go with the great sin drift.

Hence God instructed Noah to built an Ark with very specific instructions from Genesis 6:14 – 22. Then the great flood came and Genesis 7:23-24 “HE destroyed all living things which were on the face of theground: both man and cattle, creeping thing and bird of the air. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the Ark remained alive. And the waters prevailed on the earth one hundred and fifty days.”

The landing place for Noah’s Ark, Genesis 8:4 “Then the Ark rested in the seventh month, the sventeenth day of the month,  on the mountains of Ararat.”

Noah’s family and all the animal, creeping thing, every bird and whatever ever creep on earth went out of the Ark and went their way down from the mountain top, to be fruitful and fill the earth.  None stayed on this mountain top as God had blessed them.

News had reported the sighting and evident of Noah’s Ark.  The Chinese explorers from China and Hong Kong had reported seeing the Noah’s Ark parts in cave and it seems to contradicts the finding of other explorers. But is is said that the Noah’s Ark had slide down to lower level at 6,375 feet and it is possible that some of these part such beams and compartments may had break away and landed in these cavern. The most significant report can be found in this web site where interesting facts like modern technology of laminated woods and rivets had been used.

2.  Mount Sinai at 7,497 feet.

This is the mountain where God spoke to Moses. That, at least, is the overwhelming belief, and the belief itself has drawn pilgrims for over a thousand years.  Although no archeological evidence of Moses’ presence on the mountain exists, there are abundant relics of faith throughout the eons. Ancient chapels and structures honoring saints and the Virgin Mary appear all along the main route, called Sikket Saydna Musa (“The Path of Moses”), including a stone-hewn arch where, long ago, a monk once sat and heard confession from the pilgrims. Nearing the summit, one encounters the natural amphitheater where the 70 wise men waited while God spoke with Moses, then finally a small chapel and mosque at the top. Moses did not stayed on top of the mountain but went down to deliver the Ten Commandments to his people. Exodus 19: 25 “So Moses went down to the people and spoke to them.

3.  Mount Olives at 2,710 feet.

And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. (Zechariah, Ch 1:4)

And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives. (Luke, Ch 21:37)

After a long, hard day, Christ would come here to meditate and pray. Here he sat and shared the parables of 10 virgins and five talents. And after the crucifixion, Jesus Christ led his disciples here before ascending to Heaven.

This is the mountain that Lord Jesus was captured and crucified.  After HIS resurrection, HE did not stayed on this mountain top but ascended to heaven. And HE is coming back in the cloud with HIS armies of angelic warriors.

Jesus come back

Jesus come back

4.  Mount Zion at 2,510 feet.

David captures area and it becomes the City of David, 2 Samuel  5:7 “David took the stronghold of Zion (that is , the City of David).”  Later the location of Solomon’s Temple.

1 Kings 8:1 “Now Solomon assembled the elders of Israel and all the heads of the tribes, the chief fathers of the children of Israel, to King Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD from the City of David, which is Zion.”

1 King 6: 11-14 “Then the word of the LORD came to Solomon, saying:  “Concerning this temple which you are building, if you walk in My statutes, execute My commandments, and walk in them, then I will perform My word with you, which I spoke to your father David.”

5.  Mount of the Transfiguration at 1,886 feet.

Before the disciples’ eyes, Jesus is transfigured (appearing as he will after resurrection) next to Moses and Elijah (mountain veterans).  (Matthew 17:1-9, Mark 9:2-8, Luke 9:28-36)

Luke 9:28-36 “Now it came to pass, about eight days after these saying, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray. As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening. And behold, two men talked with Him, who were Moses and Elijah. But Peter and those with him were heavy with sleep, and when they saw His glory and the two men who stood with Him. Then it happened, as they were parting from Him, that Peter said to Jesus, “Master, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tabernacles:  one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah” – not knowing what he said. While he was saying this, a cloud came and overshadowed them,  and they were fearful as they entered the cloud.  And a voice came out of the cloud, saying “This is My beloved Son. Hear Him!” When the voice had ceased, Jesus was found alone. But they kept quiet, and told no none in the those days any of the things they had seen. When the voice ceased, Jesus was found alone. But they kept quiet, and told no one in those days any of the things they had  seen. 

The disciples were commanded not to tell anyone of this vision as they came down from the mountain. Matthew 17:9 “Now as they came down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them, saying, “Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man is risen from the dead.” 

6.  Mount Carmel at 1,724 feet.

Elijah calls God to light a sacrifice on fire proving to the Prophets of Baal his is the one true God.

1 Kings 18:19-20 Elijah said to Ahab “Now therefore, send and gather all Israel to me on Mount Carmel, the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal, and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table. So Ahab sent for all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together on Mount Carmel.”

Prophets of Baal, who called their god morning till noon, nothing happened. 1 Kings 18:27 “And it was, at noon, that Elijah mocked them and said, “Cry out loud, for hi is  a god; either he is meditating, or he is busy, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is sleeping and must be awakened.”

 1 Kings 18:37-38 Elijah “Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the LORD GOD, hear me, that this people may know that You are the LORD GOD, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again. Then the fire of the LORD fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench.”

7.  Sermon on the Mount (Unknown high).

Jesus delivers the Beatitudes and The Lord’s Prayer.  (Matthew 5,6,7) It is not clear where the exact location of the mountain where Jesus delivers the Beatitudes is.  Matthew 5:1-2  “And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. The He opened His mouth and taught them.

Google search and found bibleplaces.com suggested that there was once a hill known as Mt. Eremos, which is located between Capernaum and Tabgha and is just above the “Cover of the Sower.”

God’s Mountains were hence, have the presence of God and no man stayed on top of it.  From Noah’s family and all the living.  None stayed at top of Mt Ararat but came down,  fruitful and fill the earth.  Only one man, that is Lord Jesus, had occupy the Mount Olives most of His time. His prayers, crucifixion, and eventual ascend to heaven. Symbolic meaning of God’s mountain should be clearly understood by now as it is the place where man can get closer to God, it is not a an object to be worshiped by man. 

B.  Let’s talk about Man’s mountain.

After the fall of Adam and Eve, mankind starts to gain knowledge and do things their ways.  Because man became more evil, God sent flood to kill all of them all except Noah and his family. Then new generations begins and filled the earth. Then they build The Tower of Babel, which is the earliest day of Man’s Mountain (as it shaped like a mountain). And they spoke in one language and one speech, and since they can build their own City whose top is in the heavens, they neither have need for God nor worship Him. This is more of symbolic meaning (figurative) than actual physical building, there is no evident of it and scientifically impossible to build such building at that time and also heaven cannot be lowly hung such that man can easily see and reach.

Genesis 11:1-8  Now  the whole earth had one language and one speech.  And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there.  Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar.  And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower  whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”  But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.  And the LORD said, “Indeed  the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. “Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city.”

From that days onward, countries of different nations and races were formed and people speak in different languages. They have different culture and practices.  Many religions were derived from olden days of the Old Testament.

Here are the various religions practiced by people in different groups derived from old practice in OT :-

Burn incense and offer sacrifices – Most religions, Buddhism, Islam, Chinese Taoist, etc. This was very much the practices in the Old Testament days.

Hair and Beard is sacred, a gift from God – The Sikh don’t cut their hair and beard as a matter of respect to God, the creator, appreciating His love for giving hair to mankind. Interesting to know that, this practice perhaps derived from Samson who was given special strength as no razor should come upon his head. Unfortunately Samson was tricked by Deliliah as he told her his secret Judges 16:17 “He told her all his heart, and said to her, “No razor has ever come upon my head, for I have been a Nazirite to God from my mother’s womb. If I am shaven, then my strength will leave me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.”

Putting color soil on forehead and praying to bull and other objects –  In Hinduism, the cow is revered as the source of food and symbol of life and may never be killed. In certain way Cow is being worshiped as God when they believed that god had manifested in it.  In Old Testament, when Moses was up on Mount Sinai with God, people complaint to Aaron and  Aaron said to them, Exodus 32:2-4  “Take off the gold earrings which your wives, your sons, and your daughters are wearing, and bring them to me.” So all the people took off their gold earrings and brought them to Aaron. He took the earrings, melted them, poured the gold into a mold, and made a gold bull-calf. The people said, “Israel, this is our god, who led us out of Egypt!”

Wearing sackcloth and Ashes  – In Chinese custom and some of other religion, wearing sackcloth for the immediate or close relative of the deceased is showing respect and truly mourning. In biblical history, wearing sackcloth has the purpose of showing: Mourning, Repentance and prophetic role of humbling before the Lord.

Today, we have people preached message from Bible regarding cultural mountains. What was being preached about is to be on top of the cultural mountain in area of Religion, Family, Business, Education, Government, Arts and Entertainment and Media.  In the nutshell, we are talking about glorifying Christ, Kingdom of God by being in these Man’s mountain to be the head and not the tail.  To be a influencing party for the gospel and not being influenced by the world.

In 1975, Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade, and Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With a Mission, had lunch together in Colorado. God simultaneously gave each of these change agents a message to give to the other. During that same time frame Francis Schaeffer was given a similar message. That message was that if we are to impact any nation for Jesus Christ, then we would have to affect the seven spheres, or mountains of society that are the pillars of any society.  You can read more about the Man’s mountain. http://www.7culturalmountains.org

Many were inspired and impacted by this message and it is good.  Remember what Father Jesus said.  John 17:28 “As you have sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.” And you are not of the world.

This desire to be on the top of the Man’s mountain has to come from Father God Jesus, ie. God sent.

It has to be from vision or revelations, so the individual who gets there and can come down from the mountain top anytime to serves people instead of being worshiped by people. The danger is that many people achieved climbing to the top of the Man’s mountain by their own efforts and claimed to be due  vision from God.  There is dangers of lusts for money, authority, and fame.  See the picture I had done in one of my article.  http://esharingportal.com/system-or-spirit-driven.html

The picture clearly show, either you being the donkey are control by Lord Jesus towards your destiny or you fallen into lusts for Power (authority), Fame or Money and controlled by Spirit of Jezebel or her agents.  Learn from Father Abraham, Joseph, Moses, King David, King Solomon and all the prophets, they did not bring themselves to the top but followed instructions from God. Even Mary’s virgin birth to our Savior Jesus was from God’s instructions.

Donkey for Jesus

 

The time will come where all will be tested by Father God Jesus.  Will one let go of the worldly gain? It will be very difficult and painful for those who achieved the top position by their own effort with worldly gains to let go in time of rapture.  Just like the rich young man in purple rope, he asked Jesus on how to achieve eternal life. Jesus told him to sell everything and give to the poor and follow him. But he could not let go of his great possessions and became sorrowful and be lost forever. Those who are humble, who are put in place by God at that top level will have no problem letting go in the time of rapture because they knew in their heart, soul and mind that their achievement comes from God and nothing of the world belongs to them.

Testimony from Dr. Richard Teo, who was a 40-year-old millionaire and cosmetic surgeon with a stage-4 lung cancer, sharing at a Dental Christian Fellowship Meeting on 24 Nov 2011, 8 months after his diagnosis.

In the video he spoke of how he had achieved the pinnacle of life, a very successful cosmetic surgeon who makes millions. He have sport cars, partying in high class club with top model and lived in bungalow until he contracted cancer.  He realized that all these things that he had achieved doesn’t give him comfort and happiness. Only when he reborn and accepted Christ as Lord and Savior, he starts to realized that happiness and joy comes from serving people.  You can view his full testimony by clicking this link.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLFzJntPDCs

In  conclusion, for myself, I feel it is safer for me to be yearn for God’s mountains and if possible stay on top or nearer to the top to get close to Father God Jesus.  The God’s mountain has symbolic meaning which I had interpreted with His wisdom.

Mt  Ararat – The purging of evil generation. The new beginning washed over. Reborn Christians.

Mt Sinai – Anointed prophets who follows the laws and help authority realised their mistakes.

Mt Olives – Spiritually matured into new being acceptable to Kingdom of God in heaven.

Mt Zion – Mighty angelic warrior of God, a tru worshipper.

Mt of Transfiguration – New being in Christ, a Spiritual immortal body doing wonder works unto God.

Mt Carmel – Miracle performance, convict and diminish the false prophets and win prophets to Father Jesus.

Sermon on the Mount  – Great teacher continuing to teach and disciples believers.

It is alright to have desire and ambition to be on top of any of the Man’s mountain but a word of caution, you’re treading on a very thin line between God’s calling and devil’s temptation.

Learn from Father Jesus, when the devil lead Jesus to the highest mountain, he promised Jesus that all the KingDom of the world and its splendor will belongs to Him if he would bow down and worship the devil. But Lord Jesus resisted the temptation and rebuked the devil “Only God Lord, I will worship and serve, get away Satan.” And Jesus did not stayed in mountain top but came down to serve people and have fellowship with sinners, tax collectors and prostitutes.

Fit and proper Leader

How this article title come about.

LeaderI kept on thanking Father God Jesus for the new job HE had arranged for me. It was really a miracle for me.  This year August 2012 was my 1 year anniversary of being graduated from SOT 2011. In actual fact, I had forgotten that I had told my mother-in-law that I probably will be working in church after graduation to justify for my decision to a quit telesales job. I had actually forgotten about my “assurance”. By the way, my mother-in-law suffered stroke during sleep and is still in comatose. My wife’s cousin whom I had not seen for almost 30 years, flown from Australia and he told me that he was informed by mother-in-law that I studied SOT to be a Pastor. My mother-in-law was really serious about my promise that I will work in church. He came to Singapore to pray with me for mother-in-law’s recovery and also his wife received words   from our Lord Jesus “that the work had been done.” I confirmed the status to them that it was so on that faithful Monday when I prayed as prompted by our Holy Spirit. On that day, the doctor had showed us the scan that she had suffered blood clog and is as good as brain dead but Lord Jesus healed her as I prayed for her, speak-in-tongue and interpreted my own tongue. She is now at her home, but eyes still cannot open though she is very conscious of things happening around her and can respond to our question and sometime mutter a few words.

So, one day as I was doing my routine web design job, I complained to Lord Jesus in prayer that it had been 1 year since I had graduated from SOT, the church is not accommodating in anywhere that could lead me to work in church. Then my prayer was answer with couple of revelations, it seems that the church is very much system run and many criteria must be met before anyone can work in church, must be recommended by CGL which is subjective to one’s opinion, certain level of qualification and perhaps number of years serving in ministry. Then once I have this knowledge understood, our Holy Spirit prompted me to apply for a job in one of the internet portal. I submitted about 8 entries. Then on the same day, I received one phone interview and then next day a call to go for a job interview. Praise the Lord! I got the job but I have to retake my M5 exam. Well, I had to read the notes couple of times, and practice the mock exam, repeat about 5 times. It was quite stressful because my exam was only 5 days away. Then as I read the notes and took the mock exam and also at the actual exam day, the words “Fit and proper” kept appearing. It is some kind of revelations. And I really prayed about it and somehow, my senior partner coached me and informed me that this is the message our Lord wanted me to convey to church people. So here am I writing this article “Fit and proper leader.”

What is the criteria to be a Fit and proper Cell Group Leader?

1.  God fearing.

You must be God fearing in order to do God’s work else you will be only listening to man and the worst enemy, the worst man that you feared the most is your own voice. The old man that is living inside of you. Ever since the day of fallen Adam, this “old man” that is inside is being subject to the ruler of this earthly generation. Learn from the example of King Saul and King David. Both of them committed sins. But why the different end result, one forgiven and the other was not?

King Saul  disobey God by sparing the life of Agag , King of Amalek. 1 Sam 15:24 “And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.”

King David committed adultery and murder and later repented.  2 Samuel 12:13  “Then David confessed to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD.” Nathan replied, “Yes, but the LORD has forgiven you, and you won’t die for this sin.”

The answer is this King Saul disobeys God’s direct command while King David commits sins but he repented. It would seem that disobeying God’s direct command is a very severe sin than man sin. We thus need leader who are God fearing and obeying or else this leader would be listening only to people because he is just like King Saul; people fearing and pleaser.

Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge;  fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

2.  Good shepherd

Guide, teach and protect his sheep. Clearly if you are a good shepherd, your members will listen to your voice and have complete trust in you because, they know that you will even lay down your life for them. Unfortunately leaders who are “System based” won’t even do the minor insignificant thing for their members. They are in the opposite end. They expect members to fit their system before they are willing to be their shepherd. They became the “hired shepherd” only as depicted in this part of the bible, they won’t care much about the sheep. Although this type of  leader shepherd don’t work only for money but they do work for their face saving or status, they will not hesitate to dismiss any member who don’t fit their system criteria.

The leader must have the interest of each member at heart. Care to spent time to get to know the individual better. If possible participate in their life. Even dialogue with them in social media. Have the gift of wisdom and discerning ability. To know the needs of members without being told. Leader cannot be playing doctor. That is how doctor see patient, they would ask the patient “What’s wrong with you.” It is really a funny practice where the sick person have to tell doctor of what sickness they have instead of the doctor giving the examination and tells them what’s wrong with them. Leader should have the ability to receive the Gift of knowledge combined with other spiritual gifts to help their members.

John 10:11-21 (NLT)  “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep.  A hired hand will run when he sees a wolf coming. He will abandon the sheep because they don’t belong to him and he isn’t their shepherd. And so the wolf attacks them and scatters the flock. The hired hand runs away because he’s working only for the money and doesn’t really care about the sheep. “I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep. I have other sheep, too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also. They will listen to my voice, and there will be one flock with one shepherd.”

View this video, the father sacrificed his life so that his son and daughter can live. The grievous mistake was someone dropped the money bag.

3.  Support and help member fulfill their God’s given vision.

It would be very damaging if church appoint a leader themselves never receive direct vision or dream from Father God Jesus. They will very unlikely able to envisage or believe the visions of their members, but instead they became “Jacob, the vision killer”. It is very dangerous to have this type of leader because they set a very bad example for the others to follow. Let’s take a look at Joseph’s story.

In Joseph’s second dream, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to him (Gen. 37:9). He told this second dream to his brothers and his father. Joseph’s father said: “Do you expect your whole family to come and bow down before you?” Genesis 37:10 “So he told it to his father and his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, “What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?” Later on, Joseph’s brothers hated him even more and plotted to kill him but didn’t, instead sold him as slave.  Here were two problems to this issue :-

1.  Jacob (symbolic meaning of Spiritual leader) did not believe that the dream Joseph had is from God. If he had, he would had support and help Joseph fulfill his dream. Unfortunately he became a dream/vision killer, rebuked Joseph of his dream. Joseph being a innocence as a naive child shared his God’s given dream hoping that his father can help him understand the dream or even help him fulfill his dream but unfortunately not only was he being rebuked, his action leads to another problem.

2.  Jacob’s action thus encouraged the other brothers to hate him more and justify their right to do evil to Joseph.

We need leader who themselves had personally received visions and dreams from Father God Jesus. This should be the concrete proof that he or she is Holy Spirit filled and will definitely move in accordance with the Holy Spirit. Only those who are born of Spirit will understand spiritual things. 1 Cort 2:14 “But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means.” In addition, the leader must be a visioneer and has good habit of keeping records of visions even though it maybe insignificant as most of the vision is given in parts. (Read my article “One man’s vision is another man’s illusion” to understand) He will diligently obey the command of the bible as stated in Habakkuk 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.”

4.  Practice God’s equal love, do not practice favoritism.

Matthew 22:37-40Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Here Lord Jesus speaks of the two parallel beam of love, vertically loving God, horizontally loving people. Only if there is upward loving of God then there is infilling of God’s love and the horizontal beam is the equal sign with open end that allows love to flow eastward and westward to all people surrounding the individual. The pyramid love is in non existence! Do you reward and love only those who pleases you? Do love only those who loves you and at arm’s length? Be clear about yourself, God’s love is not like that!  “For if you love those who love you, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet  your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect. Just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:46-48 Click link below to read and understand fully.

James 2:1 “My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don’t show favoritism.”

James 2:9  “But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers.”

http://esharingportal.com/favouritism-is-bad.html

5.  Ethical in his dealing.

Matthew 5:37 “Just say a simple, ‘Yes, I will,’ or ‘No, I won’t.’ Anything beyond this is from the evil one.”

Leaders must be honest in his or her dealing. Let the “Yes” be “Yes” and “No” be “No”.  Leader not only must be truthful, honest but also decisive in his or her dealing because as the bible had stated, anything other than the “yes” or “no” is from the evil one. I think it is hard for some leader to understand. When members propose or suggest something, they are sincere and gives due respect, looking up upon leaders and serious about. They expect the leader to provide an answer. Members who are pro-active and creative will not hesitate to propose ideas. Some of these suggestions could be mooted by our Holy Spirit and we all know very well that the devil knew that he has little time on earth and he is all out to destroy God’s work. Leaders who are not moving in Spirit will be influenced by the devil to keep quiet about any good proposal. Why? Because they are very self-centered, and the devil gave them pride such that they think that they have the best solution and system in place. Any input from member, they would just shrug off without giving an “yes” or “no” answer and little did he know, he is preventing the work of God from being carried out. The member felt had been somehow betrayed. And there had been cases of members’ idea being stolen.

Also leader maybe biased to people whom they like more and chances is that they will be quick to approve their suggestion or ideas. This tantamount to the practice of favoritism.

In addition, from what I learned in M5 notes, there are 3 criteria for “Fit and proper test”, though these are criteria set by MAS for relevant person to be consider for the financial job, we can use for biblical principle :-

1)  Honesty, integrity and good reputation.

2)  Competent and capability.

3)  Financial soundness.

In summary, Loving God and people fervently.  Only than On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Matthew 22:40 The Fit and proper leader must had gone through the 3 level of Spiritual growth. He or she must had bear the fruit of Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:22-23love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance.”

When God asked Solomon of the things he could ask for, he asked for the right thing not for himself but for the people. “God said; ‘Ask! What shall I give you?’” I Kings 3:5

“So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?” 1 King 3:9

God is was well pleased with King Solomon’s request and HE said to King Solomon “I have also given you what you have not asked: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the kings all your days.” 1 King 3:13

A MESSAGE FROM SISTER SANDRA SADIQ

When I first became born again Christian 12 years ago I went to a Benny Hinn’s crusade in Long Island, New York and bought this Spirit filled Life Bible from Benny Hinn’s ministry on 13 August 1997 (5:47pm).  I was so poor and broke but I was so happy to spend $50 on a bible because my Pastor always said it was good to have a least one good study/quality bible that we can keep for years  and she said we spend money on everything else why not spend money on God’s things.  I was just so happy to be saved and full of peace I felt that was the best gift I could give myself anyway. 
 
After the Lord started dealing with me about end times, in October 2008 Holy Spirit led me to the spiritual answers written on page 2001 by Pat Roberstson in that New King James bible from Benny Hinn’s ministry and I could believe what I was seeing or reading.  Mind you, I have had this bible for over a decade even taken it to war but then read the bible just Genesis to Revelation.  God knew He had created me for End times revelations before I was even formed in my mother’s womb that is why He moved my heart to purchase that bible because at the end He was going to use the things on the page 2001 to tell the world if they will listen.  Please take a look for yourself and you will not believe the Lord had already given Pat Roberston knowledge of what was really going to happen and how the AntiChrist (A/C) was going to come on the scene of the earth, wow.

I JUST HAVE TO SAY I LOVE THE LORD.  HE IS THE ROCK OF MY SALVATION AND HE ROCKS FOREVER MORE. 

                       ENDTIMES (SIGNS, RAPTURE, ANTICHRIST, ETC.)
                                            RAPTURE (CAUGHT UP)

                           ENDTIMES SIGNS BEFORE THE RAPTURE
1. Matt 24:3-14 (JESUS talks about the signs of the end times)
2. Mark 13:4-13 (JESUS talks about the signs of the end times)

       FINAL PIECE TO THE PROPHESY THAT HAD TO BE FULFILLED
            BEFORE THE RAPTURE  (WHICH HAS BEEN ALREADY)

2 Thess 2:3 (Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction)

                               THE MEANING OF ANTICHRIST (A/C)

1 John 2:22 Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist—he denies the Father and the Son.

1 John 4:3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

2 John 1:7 Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.

The spirit of the antichrist is always in the world and has shown itself in many ways and in many people down the ages.

Empowered by satan, this last great antichrist will recognize no authority, Christian or otherwise, apart from his own, will put himself in the place of God as the sole controller of mankind.

1 John 2:18 The last hour (not in the timing of man of in the timing of God)
SOME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SEEING 11:11 OR 01:11 (ALL THESE 1’S) IT IS BECAUSE LORD TOLD ME THE REASON WHY I KEEP SEEING THE 1’S IT IS BECAUSE OF THE ANTICHRIST WHO HAS BEEN REVEALED IN THE LAST HOUR AND THE LAST HOUR IS 11PM.

                             THE NAMES OF THE ANTICHRIST (A/C)

SOME OR MOST OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ANTICHRIST WILL NOT HAPPEN TILL AFTER THE RAPTURE. REMEMBER HE WILL NOT BE ACTIVATED TILL AFTER THE RAPTURE.

Praise the Lord, He has been so good to me. I thank the Lord so much for giving me these Revelations because I never knew anything about the end times not even a word about the Rapture (Caught up) but it was prophesied to me 26 December 2007 that in the coming year starting 2008 that God was going to give me a lot of serious revelations of His Word, serious discoveries and etc. Now I can’t stop sharing some of the things God has given me. My name is Sandra Sadiq.

In August 2006 whiles I was stationed in Korea early one morning the Lord woke me up to pray like I usually do but I was so tired and I told Him I will spend time with Him before I going to work like I always do but I just needed a little more sleep. In about 45 minutes to an hour later, I heard this loud sound and the first thing that came to my mind was oh boy that is the sounding for all the soldiers on post to get ready for war (in the Army that is how we practice for war and we call it an alert). So I got up running in my barracks room getting ready for work and at the same time I was repenting to the Lord that I have to get ready for work because of this emergency so I will have to spend more time with Him later. When I finally left the room I realized there was no one on the streets or even in my office and at that time I was working for one of the general officer’s in the army. This was about 4 or 5 am in the morning. Finally I decided to go back to my room then I saw a guy on the street on post and I asked him why there is no one outside because there is an alert and later on that day I kept asking people and no one had heard that sound the sound but me. But I never bothered to ask the Lord so a couple of days later which was on a Sunday I was in the bus going to church and there was a young lady who I had invited to church talking to me in the bus but then I heard the Lord so clear and what He said to me was the sound I heard that day was from Him in Heaven that was the trumpets; wow. GOD IS SO GREAT.

On 18 September 2009, I went to the salon to get my hair done and I started talking about end times with a couple of the ladies there. I told them about the first seal been opened and one lady asked me who is the A/C and I said I can’t tell her but I will send her the scriptures so she can study them herself and allow the Lord to talk to her. Then she mentioned a name and told me she thought it was that person too but she went and asked her Pastor and her Pastor said it will be a beast from East. I knew not to engage in any arguments with her so I said I know what the Lord told me and I rather listen to God rather than any other human being. So the next day on 19 Sept. when I got up and the first thing the Lord said to me was, even He is God Almighty had to come in the form of man and was also was called the Lamb but yet did He did not come walking on all fours (looking like an actual lamb) on earth what makes people think the devil will actually send a real beast to conquer the world. Yes the bible uses the word beast or the A/C but that doesn’t mean the Antichrist will actually look just like a beast as in an animal form, oh boy. The A/C has to come in the form of man and pretend and deceive many, in order for one to deceive they will have to look and talk like the people or the thing they are trying to take over.

I LOVE THE LORD. I never thought God will pick me to give me all these end times Revelations because I really didn’t even know anything about trumpets, Rapture, end times, etc. It is easier to teach, preach or talk about these end times Revelations instead of writing them. My brothers and sisters in the Lord, please be Ready and Waiting for the Lord because there really is nothing left for Him to do other than the sounding of the trumpets.

LORD, I AM FOREVER GRATEFUL AND I LOVE YOU. REALLY THERE IS NO GOD LIVE JEHOVAH.

 A. It is also very important that we all understand just because someone refuses the Mark of the Beast and does not accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and is killed by AntiChrist’s and his team does not mean they are going to Heaven or spend eternal life with the Lord.

They will actually have to repent of their sins and ask Jesus into their hearts and others will have to rededicate their lives back to Jesus again (those will be Lukewarm Christians). I really don’t know how many times I can keep repeating these words probably till it finally sinks in your spirit that we don’t have time and you don’t want to take anything lightly. Even after the Rapture, it tells us he (A/C) is going to be in power not only in the physical realm but also in the spiritual realm. He will be in power in the sense that he is going to be controlling the world, since he is satan son or right hand man he too believes the lie there is no God that actually he is the god. The AntiChrist is going to be controlling everything including the media and he will do all he can to try to convince people there is no such thing a Rapture, that the Rapture did not happen and it is actually an alien that has adapted them or they have been kidnapped. It is the AntiChrist’s job to be used fully by the devil to try to do all he can so people will deny the existence of Jesus and also that the bible is a lie so many will end up spending eternal life in hell. My brothers, sisters and the unbelievers don’t believe those things because it is part of the plan from the enemy so we will not know the truth especially for those who will be left behind.

Revelation 13 verse 16. The AntiChrist will cause many to receive the mark, so it does not matter who you are during that time if you are poor, rich, old, middle age, middle class and etc. he is going cause all to receive the mark (666) so it is very important that we know all these things. We serve an awesome God who put all these things on paper so we will not be deceived but we will have knowledge about what is about to happen on earth.

Revelation 13 verse 17. The people who will be able to buy or sell will be those people with the name of the Beast or his Mark. Oh my brothers, sisters and unbelievers since we know we are already in the End Times and some are not sure if they are going to Rapture, but some do know because God has already told them that they will be Rapturing but it does not mean those people should fall asleep in the spirit now because they too can be left behind especially with they start going back to their old lives. If someone is not Christian they already know they cannot be Rapture because the bible says those who are His (God’s) have His Spirit dwelling in them, Hallelujah. The Word of God also says Jesus is coming for a Bride (Christians) without spot or wrinkle; Ephesians 5:27. So if you know you are living a lukewarm life you cannot and will not be Rapturing. We need to start storing up some food etc. No one will be able to buy or sell, whether to go to work and etc. remember money is going to be useless. Everything is going to be done through that Mark (666), that Mark.

It is very important that we don’t take it lightly that after the Rapture we might get a chance to some of us can’t even fast for one day so just imaging going days without food you might end up not being able to resist the devil by refusing the Mark just for food sake. Some people like I said before will or might die on the spot and they will end up in the gates of hell because after the Rapture they were part of those people who did not get a second chance to repent and give their lives to Jesus Christ. They were probably in the airplanes, vehicles etc. or around places where people operating those transports were, so they did not know even for them to run and hide somewhere for safety. The airplanes will be falling from the sky and they will be hitting public, residential areas, private places and etc. so if you are there and you have been left behind guess what those things will be coming right unto you and you will not get a chance to repent. You might not get a chance to repent or give your lives to the Lord, Jesus.
Please make copies of this sermon and also please feel free to sacrifice some of your personal time and translate this some into the main languages of your country and dialects so people can read it too and give them to your love ones the saved and the unsaved. So that they will know and understand what is about to happen on earth. Even now we don’t have time. At the end if we chose to live for God or not we will all make an account for the lives we have lived here on earth to Him. Whether we chose to be Christians or not we will all be judge at the end. Those who will to accept Him will at the end also spend eternal life in hell.

What will be my last words?

As you ponder on this daunting questions, you must be thinking that this question is for people who are going to die soon. As a matter of fact, it is! I came to realize that this is a very important question, after having view Dr Richard Teo who is a 40-year-old millionaire and cosmetic surgeon died of cancer at young age of 40.  Dr Richard Lee shared at a Dental Christian Fellowship Meeting on 24 Nov 2011, 8 months after his being diagnosed with stage 4B cancer. Then on  19 Jan 2012,  he gave a heart touching speech to the D1 class of his life experience. The video went virus and received viewership of 60,000 and 70,000 at the time of writing this article. View the video and listen to his words.

“Don’t let society tell you how to live. Don’t let the media tell you what you’re supposed to do. Those things happened to me. And I led this life thinking that these are going to bring me happiness. I hope that you will think about it and decide for yourself how you want to live your own life. Not according to what other people tell you to do, and you have to decide whether you want to serve yourself, whether you are going to make a difference in somebody else’s life. Because true happiness doesn’t come from serving yourself. I thought it was but it didn’t turn out that way.” Dr Richard Teo

The Bible verse that Lord Jesus spoke to Dr Richard Teo “Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children.”  Hebrew 12:7,  gives him peace and as an answer to his question.

What last words people may had lamented?

For a person who lost the health.  “Oh God, why you allow this to happen to me and why not someone else. Why you take my health away.”

For a person who blame others. “It is all your faults, you all brought this onto me or else I will not be in this situation.”

For a person with unfinished job. “God, I feel very bad and depressed, there are so many things I suppose to do but I didn’t put in effort and do it. I regretted my laziness Lord, can restore my health so that I will be more hardworking and diligent in doing my job.”

For a person who lost their love “There is no one loving me, I am hopeless. I don’t care about other people anymore. I don’t care how my parent would feel after I die. No meaning for me to continue living.”

Notice one thing in common, these people are all self-centered. I can understand their predicament and understand how they feel. I had been through this phase of life before and got out of it by the grace of Lord Jesus. As Richard Teo also said, “Because true happiness doesn’t come from serving yourself.” That is very true, why you have this self-centered thought? If you value other people better then yourself, then you will not be too concern about own sufferings and loneliness. As a matter of fact, the joy of serving other people will takes away your suffering and loneliness and get more things done with the help of more friends.

Janice and Sonia Lee’s mom “Rejoice, no matter what happened in your life, never blame God for anything, everything that happened HE had a purpose.”

What was Lord Jesus’ last words to HIS disciples as written in the Bible?

Lord Jesus’ last words at HIS last supper with disciples.

After Lord Jesus washed the feet of HIS disciples, HE sat down and said to them “Do you know what I have done to you? You call me Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.” John 13:12-15

To wash another person’s feet required you to go down to the lowest level, even kneeling down and soil yourself, which is an act of being humble and a good servant to disciples. That clearly illustrated what Lord Jesus had declared beforehand “I came not to be served but to serves.”  Many leaders and pastors are sitting at the pinnacles of their throne, not only refuse to wash their disciples’ feet but also distance themselves because of their poisonous thinking that “familiarity breeds contempt“.

Lord Jesus also issued His last command “a new commandments I give to you, that you love one another; as I loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35.

Lord Jesus’ last words at being crucified onto the cross

Then Jesus said “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

Lord Jesus’ last words to the thief who was crucified with Him on the day onto the cross

The thief  said to Lord Jesus “Lord, remember me when You come into Your Kingdom.” And Lord Jesus said to him, “Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.” Luke 23:42-43 (The thief did something for Lord Jesus even he was dying.)

What do you think will be your last words?

‘Father Jesus bring me home with you, I had done what you had instructed me and I will not look back on my way up because our Holy Spirit had taught me well in all things.” This will be my last words. Praise the Lord!

For my family and friends. “If you want to be with me in heaven, you need to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. I would like to show you around my mansion in heaven.”

Illegal Pyramid love

A. Illegal Pyramids vs, Legal distribution

I learned from illustration of illegal pyramid vs legal distribution source (graphic taken from MLM-theWholeTruth.com http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUWmgsgMkPU).

What has WorldVentures got to do with this article I am writing?

Well, I have been thinking how best to illustrate the point about the illegal pyramid love. Amazingly, I received the answer from exploring the internet resources to explain to prospect’s concern if Worldventures  is a legal MLM or illegal pyramid. Surprisingly this video provided me with new ideas on how to illustrate the danger of  illegal pyramid love. All these miracle happened because of  HIS divine intervention for me to join Worldventures. Glory to  HIM.

Illegal pyramids vs legal distribution

Illegal pyramids vs legal distribution

There is nothing really wrong with this triangle chart, as a matter of fact, all company is being structured in this way. However on the left is the illegal pyramid, what you see is that the money flows only upwards, there aren’t any product profit sales benefits going to the people at the lowest level.  People on the top receive huge amount of money from the membership recruitment below and those bottom down receive nothing.

The figure on the right showed the legal distribution systems. You can call them direct sales, network marketing or MLM (multi level marketing), it doesn’t matter what you call because they all meant the same thing. For this legal distribution, there are real products sales and at all level. Everybody, from top to bottom, has the right to sell products to prospects and also enjoy the products benefits themselves. This system provides certain degree of fairness. However, those who are earlier tends to have advantage over those who joined later but due to fairness in the system, those who joined later have the opportunity to move up to the upper level as long as they have more number of members in their recruitment team than the person who recruited, that’s why I like Worldventure’s system of two legs and unlimited depth of team bonuses.

B.  Pyramids love vs Hierarchy love

 

Pyramids vs Heirarchy love

Pyramids vs Heirarchy love

I know it is not easy to understand, but I’ll try my best to explain. On the left we are talking about Cell group system that runs on pyramids style of apportioning love. What the leader (might be you) do is that he or she cares only about the number of member being generated to reflect his or her status as good leader being able to build members in the team. The leader is absolutely very status concern and inhabit the wrong believe that   Familiarity Breeds Contempt.  This leader only communicate with his or her top most core member, maybe restricted to only the right hand and left hand man. All the other members do not get a chance to talk to the leader and have absolutely no idea of the plan or work details of the leader. The leader is only interested in the goal chasing for themselves.  Credits were being accorded to the leader only, he or she takes all the credits labored by members.

The figure on the right is Hierarchy love, this system is slightly better than pyramid love.  The leader is also very status conscious, he or she is particularly concerned that Familiarity Breeds Contempt. They thus shun away from members at the bottom of the hierarchy. To show that they care for members, once awhile they will avail themselves to speak to the members at the bottom of the hierarchy, but they kept a distance from them because of status conscious and distorted understanding of Familiarity Breeds Contempt.  The members at the bottom of hierarchy have little or no idea of what the leader and core members had planned for them. Basically these members at the bottom were being chucked into the “cold system”. The love flow (rewards) doesn’t go down to the people at the bottom of the hierarchy.  The leader himself or herself receives credits for themselves first and then apportion some of these credits to core member nearer to them or pleased them the most.

What’s wrong with these two systems?

For the pyramid love, it is very selfish and unfair system of running the group. While the members down the line worked and labored for the group’s profit but they aren’t receiving any recognition and benefit from the leader. The completely “left out” members will leave the group but felt cheated.

For the hierarchy love, the team work synergy is slightly better than the pyramid love in that the leader had apportion some time to touch base with the members down the line.  But unfortunately the members will leave the group as they felt the lack of attention and diminishing love.

Sometimes, the system can be so cruel as to sack the members or even do things indirectly to get rid of members by withholding information or knowledge from them. Or even deliberately omit them from participating in the group’s activities or events so that they would felt unwanted and leave the group.  The leader will do it as long as member is not producing results or maybe dislike them for whatever reason.

Familiarity Breeds Contempt had been misunderstood by certain leaders. In bible context, in most part of OT, what God means is that if you  gets too  familiar with sinful way of doing things, that brought contempt to God.  Another area is Jesus’ hometown, people are too familiar with HIM as the carpenter’s son and thus HE could not do much miracle there. Some leader used this as an excuse not to reach out to member at bottom, because of their status consciousness.

Addon notes (19/10/2012) What do you familiar Jesus with? HE is somebody that only mentioned in bible? Actually, how are you related to Lord Jesus in your Christian walk? Many could not really get themselves familiar with the fact that Father God Jesus is very much alive and active for you in the spiritual realm, HE intercedes for everyone daily without stop. But what do you do when you are having problem? Unfortunately, many could not be familiar with Lord Jesus as the Spiritual Father who is available 24/7, they choose to switch on their phone and the first person to consult is someone close to them or CG leader. It is very unfortunate. I had already written before that Lord Jesus is your “supreme authority”. The rest above you, be it CG leaders or Pastors are “apparent authority” (which I explained, someone you can see, and touch) being appointed by church. Whom do you gets familiar with as your First Love? Father Jesus should be your First love! The first person to consult! Even you have little faith as mustard seeds, as long as you call out HIS name, HE can move mountains for you. Lord Jesus was well pleased with Peter when HE asked his disciples “but who do you say that I am?”.  Simon Peter answered and said “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Matthew 16:15-16 So my friends, at what level are you familiar Lord Jesus with? Someone that you cannot feel nor see so that you will only make phone call to leaders, Pastors or close Christian friends or you’ll take the step of faith and make HIM your FIRST LOVE, FIRST LEVEL CONSULTATION, YOUR ONLY SPIRITUAL FATHER?  While understanding the rest that you are familiar with in person are assistance spiritual father.

What do the Bible say?

Luke 15:8-10   “Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents”

This parables speak of finding the lost, it also speaks of the important of apportioning love to the minor one.  There is genuine joy of finding and gaining back the lost one.

What is the right kind of love?  Equal  Love, learn from Lord Jesus.

Matthew 22:37-40Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Here Lord Jesus speaks of the two parallel beam of love, vertically loving God, horizontally loving people. Only if there is upward loving of God then there is infilling of God’s love and the horizontal beam is the equal sign with open end that allows love to flow eastward and westward to all people surrounding the individual. The pyramid love is in non existence!

 

God's Equal love

God’s Equal love

Matthew 25:42-45 “for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink. I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me. Then they will also answer Him, saying. ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least , you did not do it to Me.”

Here, Lord Jesus is not talking about Himself; HE is talking about those little ones that HE had sent to your Cell group. Many leaders can declare “Oh yes, you came to my group is not by coincidence but arranged by God.”  And then having said that they expect new member to fit into their system criteria for members because they operate their Cell group either in Pyramid love or Hierarchy system. The leader expects new members to be the same as his or her core member. I love what Dr A.R. Bernard had said in his sermon “Everybody is unique, everybody is wired differently. There is no one system fit all.” Also from Dr Robi Songderegger, he said “Everybody is unique, you have to treat individual as individual.” It is no wonder they don’t come down to ground level and met lower member’s needs. Lord Jesus depicted 6 different needs of cell group members.  The leaders running these systems had turned their CG into an Exclusive club, members who don’t fit their ideal will seems to them as rebellions and will be sent away instead of meeting their needs. But praise the Lord! There are those do not practice “system love” but have the anointing of God’s “equal love” will have the wisdom and discernment to meet every need, attentive towards  everyone because he or she didn’t sit on top but on ground level with everyone. Let’s look at another Bible verse.

“For if you love those who love you, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet  your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect. Just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:46-48

I think this bible verse is very clear, Lord Jesus expect you to do more than what would you had done while you are not yet reborn. If your attitude towards the members below you is just the same as the “old self” like what Lord Jesus depicted here, than your Spiritual fruit is in big question! You practiced pyramid or hierarchy love. If you’d have the Holy Spirit living and ministering inside you, then loving people at ALL LEVEL is natural. This is God’s equal love.

Ephesians 2:6 “And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Thanks Pastor Kong for his timely weekend message 13/10/2012).

As also preached by Pastor Bill Johnson, whatever that is true in heaven, is also true on earth. Everybody is equal in God’s sight. We are all HIS heirs. There is no auntie nor uncle but brothers and sisters on same level. That means we ought to love one another as brothers and sisters. There is no level play. Different role based on gifting and talents one possessed.  

Any leader who does not come down to the ground level and willingly wash the feet  of disciples is not a worthy leader because Lord Jesus had already shown HIMSELF as a good servant hood example for all to follow.

Conclusion, I can understand that we are all human, we have emotion and we tend to love people who are more obedience and able to do work that pleases us more. Please have a thought, have a heart for those members who are at distance from you. They also equally need your loving attention and care.

Lord Jesus don’t have to be on top of an exceedingly high mountain to be worship and respected by Kingdom of the world and their glory, instead HE resists the temptation of the devil and said “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the LORD your God, and Him only you serve.” Matthew 4:10 Lord Jesus came down to the ground level, sat, eat and drink with Tax collectors and sinners. The mark of true servant hood. A real warning for leader who lusts to be worship by men, you had fallen into temptation of the devil.

And lastly, the wisdom words as inspired by HIM :-

“It is NOT ONE BIG thing that you did for a person that gets appreciated, it is those small daily insignificant things that you do for the person, that brings much appreciations.”

Added Notes : 04/01/2014

The Equal love of Father Jesus was so strong that I took much time and effort to create the Bookmarks for Church leaders and also specially for my Team15 and all  “First SOT Graduate in Suntec City 2011.” I prayed that those who were given this special bookmark; hand make myself, resultant from a reflex to the burning “Equal Love”  and remind each other of Father Jesus words: “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 3:34-35 

It is thus very hard for those who practice “Illegal Pyramid love” to obey. They will chose to love only those whom they felt loved them and also do things pleasing to their human eyes.

But those who had the “Equal Love” of Father Jesus, then following the commandment of John 3:34-35 would be natural.   The book mark on the left, I specially make for leaders hoping that all will share the thanks giving to Lord Jesus for HIS vision given to me of two Angels flying in circle whom I called them “Fiery Red and Glitter Gold”, one is from the East and the other from the West, as I had already interpreted and prophesied that our new church venue is at Marina Area. They are my personally assigned Angels by Father God Jesus. But I already knew, the supervisor in charge had actually curtail and stopped my work for Father Jesus, preventing  the very important thanksgiving message from reaching leaders whom I had make these special bookmarks with divine message for each of them. May God bless this person in spite of his undoing.

Favouritism is Bad

 

Favoritism is Bad

Is favoritism really that bad? Considering the fact that if I am the favorite of someone, there is no doubts that I will continue to receive preference treatment. This isn’t bad right? But a word of caution, the person who practiced favoritism also needs you to gain his or her favors from time to time. Any lapsed in this aspect will probably shift their preferential treatment to another person who can win their favors by carrying their balls. In another words, you have to continue to do things that gain favors from the person who practiced favoritism and this not only corrupt your character further but also the other person.

Dictionary meaning of favoritism:-

1. the practice of giving special treatment to a person or group

2. the state of being treated as a favourite.

3. unfair treatment of a person or group on the basis of prejudice.

Why favouritism is bad?

  1. Apportioning of unequal love to individual or group.
  2. Inclination towards prejudice against certain people.
  3. Mentor people who may not as well equipped as the other larger pool of people.
  4. Creates resentment amongst the peers.
  5. Corrupt the character of the individual.
  6. Trust only those people being favoured even though they may have underlying selfish motive or unethical ways.
  7. Shielding the wrong doings of the favoured people.

Lord Jesus have had favourite disciples, did he practice favouritism?

The answer is no. Let’s us examine the bible to take account of how Lord Jesus treated His disciple.

  1. Equal love for all – HE even sat down with tax collectors or sinners instead of sitting only with his favourite disciples. Lord Jesus willingly give up HIS life for all. Mark 2-15 “And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they followed him.”
  2. Equal right to receive healing – As many as poor, non believer or believers, they received healing in accordance with God’s will.
  3. Equal treatment – 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes. If there is favouritism,  Lord Jesus would had ensure that HIS favourite disciples would take the food first and not be starved but HE groaned, gave prayer and feed 5,000 people. John 6:9-11. Jesus showed His authority as God by feeding 5,000 men with 5 barley loaves and two fish.
  4. Equal right to do ministry – Lord Jesus send out two by two to reach out to people. All were equally commanded not to bring excessive. Luke 10:1 “After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go.”
  5. Equal right to be heirs – All equally became the heirs of Abba Father, God our Lord Jesus upon receiving salvation.  Galatians 4:4-7 “And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, ‘Abba! Father!’ So through God you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son then an heir.”
  6. Unbiased praise and compliment – Lord Jesus praise and compliments all who had done good work and faith, such as the Samaritan woman and the centurion. Even Peter was one of HIS favourite disciple, Lord Jesus rebuked Him calling him “Satan” Lord Jesus don’t show partiality. Mark 8:33 “But turning and looking at his disciples,Jesus rebuked Peter,saying,”Get behind me,Satan,because you’re not thinking God’s thoughts but human thoughts.”
  7. Equally mentored everyone – Lord Jesus gives teaching and mentored all HIS disciple equally. Instructions maybe be given differently depending on the strength and talent of the individual for the function of HIS ministry. (See Next illustration).
  8. Everyone is being reward equally – Matt 20:1-16 “Parable of workers in vineyard.”

If there is no favouritism, then why only Peter, James and John were brought to a high mountain and witness His transfiguration?

For certain critical mission, Lord Jesus must choose only those who are spirit filled who will obey Lord Jesus’ words and who will seal their mouth as commanded. Matthew 17:9 “Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man is risen from the dead.” The chosen three did not say a word. Had he brought all His disciple up there, certainly there will be some who will not seal their mouth and spoke about it freely, and probably jeopardised God’s plan for the salvation and Lord Jesus knew about it. So certain critical mission only selected few will be called to work with Lord Jesus.

Is there any known bad consequences of not obeying Lord Jesus command to keep quiet?  

Mark 1:42 – 45 “A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured. Jesus sent him away at once with a strong warning: “See that you don’t tell this to anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them.”  Instead he went out and began to talk freely, spreading the news. As a result, Jesus could no longer enter a town openly but stayed outside in lonely places. Yet the people still came to him from everywhere.”

Thus the leper had jeopardized Lord Jesus plan because he didn’t seal his mouth. This event illustrated the point being disciples Lord Jesus may not be called for certain mission.

Lesson learned from Lord Jesus. In ministry, you chose only people who are Spirit filled and obey the living Words of God. If you chose only people you favoured, you are doomed for failure because these people will not sealed their mouth whenever required.

How do I know if I had practice favouritism ?

  1. Tendency to give special treatment to a person or a group.
  2. Tendency to cover up wrong doing of a person or group.
  3. Harbours prejudice against certain person or a group of people.
  4. Inclination towards giving assignment to a person or a group even though they may not be equipped for the job instead of the better equipped person or the group.
  5. Rewards given to the person or a group even though they may not have the good merit as compared to others.
  6. There is resentments, conflicts and unhappiness amongst the peers. (the resultants of the above points).   Genesis 37:3-4, TLB. “Now as it happened, Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other children, because Joseph was born to him in his old age. So one day Jacob gave him a special gift-a brightly colored coat. His brothers of course noticed their father’s partiality, and consequently hated Joseph; they couldn’t say a kind word to him.”

James 2:1 “My brothers, as believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ, don’t show favouritism.”

James 2:9  “But if you show favouritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers.”

Acts 10:3 “So Peter opened his mouth and said: “Truly I understand that God shows no partiality.”

“Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for his wrong, and there is no favouritism.” Colossians 3:25

Leviticus 19:15. “Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.”

Addon notes 156/10/2012 as revealed by HIM – Usually people who practice favouritism are self-centered person because they looked inwardly at themselves, to assess who are those who treat them well or know how to carry favors, they already prejudged certain people based on their like or dislike and they favors those who can satisfy their ego (self-centerness).

Who Cares !

Who Cares !

Why should I care when I see people act corruptly?
Why should I care since everybody has their own business to do?
Why should I care if this person or that person is living a Spirit centered lifestyle or not?
Why should I care to share my testimony since I knew that peope may not like to hear or limit my sharing?
Why should I care to tell and warn people of the revelations I received from HIM?
Why should I care to encourage people to earnestly covet for Gift of Wisdom and Discernment?
Why should I care to share with people of my dream and true vision that Father Jesus allowed me to see?
Why should I care to painfully pen down everything I had encountered into www.EsharingPortal.com?
Why should I care to point out the shortfalls of people that I encountered years after years even they gets offended and rejected me outright?
Why should I care to warn people about danger of going to Hell when there is outright preaching that there is no Hell to worry about, only SHEOL and HADES?
Why should I care to continueing attending a meeting if there is no true purpose of spiritual family meeting, just doing duty or time fulfullment there?
Why should I care to pray for this sister or that brother when after their prayer being answered, they refused to acknowledge the goodness of God by giving testimony and thanks?
Why should I care to believe and be delighted in the quick promise of certain people when knowing that they may break their promises somehow?
Why should I care to warn people about the danger of gossips where people are outrightly doing it as their routine enjoyment, victimised someone?
Why should I care to voice out the problems in a group where I knew that the people will get offended and would not want to hear about it?
Why should I care to light up a room where the people over there are more comfortable living in darkness?
Why should I care to warn someone who is heading towards darkness as it is a nom for everybody to be busy with their own lifestyle?
Why should I care if anyone else is doing well or not while I have my own life to be concerned with?
Why should I care that Christian brother and sister should reply me a definite Yes or No with regard to my query of certain decision?

Wait a minute, didn’t leaders always advised against speaking of the word “I” too loudly because it will sounds very self-centered?

The matter of the fact is that the word “I“, if did not yolked with the Spirit of God becomes very self-centered and selfish.
But if you’d have the Holy Spirit operating in you, yolked together completely, then the word “I” has been sanctified and make right with God and you can speak with Authority for God, our Lord Jesus. People in this class will naturally know how to speak Jesus’s name in everything they do!

WHO CARES!   I think that is a very common exclaimation from anyone who at times their affort to help someone meet with brick wall of deaf ears and their effort proved futile.  Just like those Isrealites, the whole generation died in desert; God had given up on them didn’t HE?

But you know what? I CARE! Because God’s spiritual love that burn into my heart is greater than my emotion and surpasses everything else that is negative, unmoving and cold!

(Addon notes 24/20/11) I CARE! Because I don’t want any of our brother and sister to fall into the prey of being used as a device by the Devil. So do you think that you can swept everything under the carpet? No! No! No! Lord Jesus hate people who are lukewarm! Read these Bible verse carefully and understand them :-

Matthew 5:37 “Just say a simple, ‘Yes, I will,’ or ‘No, I won’t.’ Anything beyond this is from the evil one.”  Thinking of it really raise goose bumps, “Anything beyond this is from the evil one.” An agreement in words that signifies a Yes or No is alright, so neither a Yes or No, what does that mean??? speaks nothing? Or was it instead of saying a Yes or No to a person, spread words to others without the speaker knowing (which usually easily converted to gossips).

(Addon notes 24/10/11) Most Christians had msunderstood what the Bible verse Hebrews 8:12 “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” Hebrews 10:17 “Then he says, “I will never again remember their sins and lawless deeds” meant!  So, perhaps they think that they are like God. Yes, if you have love, you will forgive people who had done wrong to you, but that does not meant that your memory is being completely wiped away and you remember no more like God. What this Bible verse means is that since you had seek forgiveness for your sins, God will not take it up against you and judge you anymore, it is as if HE remembers no more. If one forgive but without the pouring out the heart and soul by talking things over in completeness, then I would say that this kind of forgiveness is artificial or even temporary, it will never last! New problems will arrise because there is no total understanding and forgiveness between one another. If everybody is attitude just to pray in private, commit to God and treat things as though it had not happened, (FORGOTTEN), then the Bible verse that guide us how to reconcil with one another by way of talking out and forgiveness before going to the altar is of no benefits and no use! Read and understanding what Bible says :

Matthew 5:21-26 ESV / 2 helpful votes “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. Come to terms quickly with your accuser while you are going with him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison. …”

Matthew 18: 15-20 “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.  But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed [6] in heaven.  Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.  For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” 
Very unfortunate, many Christians choose to keep quiet, “let thing pass away” instead of talking it out as brother and sister and what happen next it these thing seeps into hatre and worst became gossips and more hurt results because truth was distorted as it past from one person to another. If ALL could obey Matthew 18: 15-20, then the truth will be contained within only the person involved and resolved.

I thanks Father Jesus for this, for giving us the “Teach All teacher” who is also our counsellor and he will bring to you remembrance of ALL THINGs Lord Jesus had taught us.  “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” John 14:26

WHY SHOULD I CARE FOR MY ENEMY SINCE THEY CAME TO ROB, STEAL, KILL AND SLANDERS OR GOSSIPS? Well, Lord Jesus said “Love your enemies”

Very strange and funny, it is very ironic. Even though the CG had not qualified me to preach or share anything because of their unknown “System Rules”, God, our Lord Jesus had already qualified me to preach to the world via Esharingportal.com. (currently 168,523 readership! Wow! Praise the Lord! Site wide, over 250,000). Also via FB post and youtube, up to date with HIS inspiration, I had produced 5 Ebooks, shipped to 10 countries friends and touched many lifes. All the glory belongs to God, our Lord Jesus. Our Holy Spirit is saying silently to me “Do you know what, Stanley, you had mentored certain people of Pastor status and in the 3rd space.” Then I also came to understand why it is very difficulty for them to  say out for the benefits they had gained because I am a nobody. A nobody, people usually shy away or don’t want to be associated with. It is alright, doesn’t matter, WHO CARES! I am more interested to do the will of God then to get recognised.

A great contrast between a caring attitude and “Who care!” or “heck care” attitude and what a shame, even a beast, the dog CARED to save another fellow dog hit by car risking his own life!

See the different picture? Dog saves, while those “Heck care” people did not. We are not showing the video of the 2 years old girl knock down by car because it is too gluesome and disturbing.

Even dog have better compassion and care

So many people started calling these “heck care” people name, “murderer”, “uncaring”, “society is seriously ill” etc

**What about the caring attitude of christian, seeing another fellow christian loosing their spiritual life? I think there is no different from these group of people! They too, also denying knowing anything, lied that they didn’t see or hear, afraid to get involved or worst off (being a device for the devil) criticise and persecute faithful christians who tried to help the fallen people.

 

“For I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.” Matt 25:42-43 The disciples were puzzled as to when Lord Jesus was in that state. Then He said to them “Assurely, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you do not do it to Me.” Matt 25:45 Now that Lord Jesus is one with God in Heaven, guess who are these “attention seeker? Your own cell group members and people you encounter daily.

The disciples were puzzled at why Lord Jesus said that He was in the hungry, thirsty, stranger, unclothed, sick, and imprison. Well, it is a symbolical representation of the kind of people that HE will sent into your cell group and daily work of life:-
1. There are people who are hungry and thirsty. Did you see their need and respond to them or you’ll wait untill they approach you then you may responds (sometimes unwillingly). Symbolical meaning – many “children” were sent to you, they are hungry for the Words, and thirsty for anointing of Spiritual gifts, did you facilitate them by being their spiritual parent and disciple them?
2. What about the newcomers, did you quickly accept them warmly accept into the spiritual family? To be honest, after being in CG for more than 3 years, I still felt like stranger to certain people. So, let’s not have the mandane way of meeting up in CG, we need to build relationship in Jesus’s name as a family. “Clothe” a person symbolically means makes the person looks good; say good things about them, encourage them, that is the opposite of gossips. (many likes gossips, that is carnal nature of “Old Man”).
3. Sick and in prison; that means the person is being trapped by iron bars of problems, sick on the inside or even physically. Did we visit them? I think we missed Angie and Wen Siang. Even though I don’t speak to them much but I probably already knew what is happening by His revelations.

Conclusion, Lord Jesus will arrange many people to us daily, really is a test of our heart. I must admit that I failed in certain area. For example, there are some who needed job, if you have the capacity to employ them, would you allocate job to them at your risk? (more appropriate for business owners). Yes, I do helped one of them that I came across. Listen to the wisdom advice by King Solomon, there is TIME FOR EVERYTHING. “Time to give and Time not to give”. One day our Holy Spirit spoke to me “You are spoiling the person’s ability to survive, you must not spoilt the person by giving money. You need to help the person find job.” I do not have the capacity to employ people, so I prayed and he got the job ….. …..

If you DO NOT have the Holy Spirit operating in your life, it is very natural for you to “heck care” about anything for your neighbour who have needs or are in trouble. Our only hope is that the God’s given conscience will works in you, wake up your spirit man, so that you will repent accept Lord Jesus and Lord and Saviour again and LIVE!

With the heart felt groaning for the little girl lying in Hospital bed, I prayed for Yue Yue for restoration of broken bones, mending of broken blood and tissue, healing, healing to full recovery in Lord Jesus’ name. Praise the Lord! Amen.

Let God’s Will be revealed.

Updated 21/10/2011

God’s will, Childrens 6 years old and below had been brought to Heaven. Just past mid-night Yue Yue was redeemed to Heaven. These are the revelations Lord Jesus gave to Choo Thomas, Author of “Heaven is So Real” You can read her testimony by browsing http://www.choothomas.org

**Note (added 22/10/2011):  I don’t know why while writing the draft notes, somehow our Holy Spirit inspired me to relate this symbolical event of the 2 years old as “Little Children” being brought “into light” in the Kingdom of God.

She was like the “New Christians” still drinking milk, wasn’t really being “INREACH” (Pastor Kong’s message today), they wasn’t care for, wondered off to the dark road, knocked down by the monsters, wounded over and over again, bleed blood and people of knowledge just “heck care” or “minding their own business”, walked past her. Maybe as what today’s message had said “Throw them into the the cold system of no love, BE BY THEMSELVES.” Worst part is knowing that the “child” is dying but as the three categories of people “Pretend didn’t see”, “The heck care, mind own business” and “The avoiding, siam king, better avoid trouble” none lift a finger to help, only the not well to do garbage collector have better care, brought her to safety just too late, the child had already been wounded very badly.

What family is this if none can even talk about it openly as a family? What family is this if knowing someone is dying (had fallen) and not lifting a finger to help them? What family is this, where only the senior allow to talk and dictate what the common one can do or said even though God had will them to do something that may seems a VDP, VDP and VDP? INREACH + OUTREACH = DESTINY

INREACH IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS OUTREACH  Today’s message by Pastor Kong, “Inreach should be 80% while the Outreach should be 20%” I fully agreed with this statement because I had already written about it.  “What is the use of that leader with his cupped hand when our Lord Jesus poured the sands into it and it leaks?”  At the end, Our Lord showed me in the vision, because of improperly cupped hands, there are big holes below, all the sands had leaked away, only a few left!

VDP = Very Demanding Person, Very Disappointing Person, Very Destructive Person.

WHO IS JUDGING WHO?

Judging, not judged

WHO IS JUDGING WHO?

I think one of the most misunderstood and abused Bible verse is :

Matthew 7:1(NKJV) “Judge not, that you be not judged”

This article is not suitable for people who are quick and swift to speak out “Judge not, that you be not judged”, whenever someone mention about the shortfall of another fellow Christian. I could stop at this line of writing, as reading this article is will be subjected to judging too.

So, in what manner does an action constitutes a judging in our daily encounter? I think it is very hard to decide on any given situation to know if it constitutes a judging or not.

In our daily walk of life, we are bound to meet people who would conveniently abuse the use of this Bible verse “Judge not, that you be not judged” even though the outspoken person may have the good intention of helping by revealing a person’s shortfall . Should not another Christian seeing his or her fellow Christian friend walking towards a hole tells and warn them about it out of love? Where is love if one can’t show love? Here are some categories of people who would intentionally or unintentionally abuse the Bible verse:

1. Afraid of being guilty of judging, misunderstood the real complete meaning of Bible verse Matthew 7:1.

2. Don’t want to get involved in helping another fellow Christian; best way to shut up the person’s mouth is by mentioning “Judge not, that you be not judged.”

3. Convicted but refusal to repent, easiest way to escape is to shut up the person by quoting Matthew 7:1 “Judge not, that you be not judged.”

4. People who are legalistic and self-righteous, always judge people, usually easily gets offended and angry whenever someone point out their wrong doing and they’ll use the Bible verse Matthew 7:1 “Judge not, that you be not judged.” to shut up the speaker.

5. People who were prejudiced against the person speaking the shortfall of other Christian, they are quick to stop the person from speaking by quoting Matthew 7:1 “Judge not, that you be not judged.”

There are other categories of people abusing the Bible verse but I’ll just restrict to the common five. In this article, I’ll try my very best to give reader the balanced view.

Why is there conflict against calling for repentance?

The root cause is rebellion, against the righteous, moral government of Almighty God. Unknowingly, all the five categories of people were being used by the principalities as agents to resist God’s plan for correcting one’s life. So, the next time someone talk to you about someone else, don’t be too quick to cut the person off, be a good listener, try to understand what is the motive of the person speaking, was it just for gossips or trying to solicit help. You have no choice, you’d become an involuntary judge in this sense, so be a GOOD JUDGE since you had already been in it.

By being a good listening, you not only show that you care and love the person speaking, but also showed your maturity in loving the other people that he or she is talking about, you are doing God’s will by interceding for His people, NOT COUNSELING! Do you not know that Lord Jesus is interceding for everyone in Heaven with His prayer?

Who is judging who? Let’s us not be overly smart, and self-righteous. Ecclesiastes 7:16(NLT) So don’t be too good or too wise! Why destroy yourself?”

Let’s us examine the category of people who knowingly or unknowingly judged people.

1. Afraid of being guilty of judging.

Matthew 7:1-2 reads “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.” (NKJV).

But these groups of people do not read and understand the whole context Lord Jesus was talking about.

Matthew 7:3-5 “And why you look at the speck in your brother’s eyes, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from you brother’s eye.”

Here the passage mention about “speck” and “plank’. A speck is obviously much smaller than the plank. What these means is that many times one tends to be critical and focus on the small imperfection in another person while they themselves have many bigger shortfalls. Lord Jesus advice, “Don’t be hypocrite, first remove the plank from your own eye.” Thus Christian who had removed the plank can, out of love, help to remove the speck from the brother or sister. Example, a person who don’t gossips can advice the other person not to do it, a person who don’t tell lie can also tell the other person not to do it, a person who don’t cheat in company sales can advice the other person not to do it, etc.

2. Don’t want to get involved.

I think this is very typical of many Singaporean. “Don’t be busybody, don’t get involved”, especially witnessing for fatal car accident, many refused to step out to be a witness because of selfishness, they don’t want to inconvenient themselves. Justice needed to be served; innocent victims lost their lives because of the carelessness of other people. The blood of the innocent cried out from the rocky road for justice! If one has love, let’s show love. The Bible mentioned that “we have to carry each other’s burden.”

What great friend Job had. Job 12:13 “So they sat down with him on the ground seven days and seven nights, no one spoke a word to him, for they saw that his grief was very great.” They stay with him without talking for seven days, only problem is they speak the wrong things and wrongly judged Job, but you know what? They received deliverance in the end; Job interceded for them in prayer and restored their relationship with God. So, how can one said to have love if knowing that another person had fallen and yet not lifting a finger to get involved to help them from falling further, by praying congregationally.

“Bear ye one another’s burden, and so fulfil the law of Christ.” Gal 6:2

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13-34-35

monkeys

In my youthful days, I used to be a good innocent guy, don’t want to get into trouble. I will not want to be involved, even witnessed evil being done such as people stealing things, someone beaten someone, I just want to be in my comfort zone of NOT GETTING involved by SPEAKING NO EVIL, SEE NO EVIL AND HEAR NO EVIL. But today, I am a different person in Christ, I don’t monkey around with God’s given revelations, discerning of certain people’s spirit as they speak and it is important because this helped me to understand why a certain good nature Christian would behave in an unGodly way, a rebellion. Our Holy Spirit is the ‘Spirit of Truth’, He reveals many things to you as long as you are a willing spirit. I would be of no use to God, our Lord Jesus if I can’t speak out with His Authority!

Our Holy Spirit had taught me a great deal in Spiritual warfare, and I understood the Bible verse Ephesian 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

3. Convicted but refusal to repent.

I think these groups are not as bad as the fourth group of people; at least they listened; only problem is that they refused to repent. For repentance, one needs to have broken spirit and a contrite heart or else they will continue their sinful ways of doing things, keeping the “old man” within them. “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. A broken and a contrite heart.” Psalm 51:17

4. People who are legalistic and self-righteous.

I think these are the worst self-righteous group of people. This is what Lord Jesus would say to these “White washed wall Christians” or “The modern day Pharisees”

“Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about, saying: These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me. Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.” Matthew 15:7-9

“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.” Matthew 23:27

5. People who were prejudiced.

These are group of people who were being mislead by others by way of gossips. Thus they already had prejudice against the person speaking out the truth. The worst situation is that they tends to listen and believe the slandering of gossiper and totally ignored the truth spoken by the honest man. Here is the Biblical advice for those who listen to the righteous man.

. “He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of the righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.” Matthew 10:41 Don’t expect monetary rewards, but when they pray for you, Heaven will open up for you to receives blessings.

Lastly, remember LOVE RULES. Whenever you want to reveals the shortfall of other people, do it with love. The Bible does taught us the proper way to correct another person, this method can be used by any non believer also. Instead of spreading or talking to other people about another person (which will ended up in gossips), the best way is to speak to the person one to one, being honest with one another and possibly renew friendship.

Matthew 18:15-17 “Moreover if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone, if he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he refuses to hear them, thell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.”

For non believer, instead of church maybe family or company is more applicable. Here is the fact, unfortunately, the steps in Matthew 18:15-17 wasn’t follow closely by many leaders, they will stopped at their level and just buried in the carpet and the problems with the individual wasn’t solve and it spread to others like wild fire, especially dealing the habit of gossiping.

Here are some Bible verse that you can use along with your great love for people:

Paul echoes the point Jesus was making in Romans 2:1-4. This passage reads: “You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things. Now we know that God’s judgment against those who do such things is based on truth. So when you, a mere man, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things, do you think you will escape God’s judgment?” (NIV).

1 Thessalonians 5:21-22 NIV says: “Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil.” KJV of this same verse passage says: “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.” So we definitely should judge all things (movies, books, music, and behavior of people).

2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV says: “All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 4:2 NIV says: “Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage- with great patience and careful instruction.”

Titus 2:15 NIV says: “These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.

Ephesians 5:11 NIV says: “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”

1 Corinthians 2:15-16 NIV says: “The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment: For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.”

I John 4:1 NIV says: “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.” Believers should test the spirits behind a person’s action to see if the action brings glory to God.

Titus 3:3-5 NIV says: “At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.”

Conclusion:

For 3 to 4 years, I had been interceding for the same group of people and new ones through revelations. I had sent SMS, emails and wrote in Esharingportal.com as inspired by Him, hopefully to help these people to know of their shortfall, be convicted and seek repentance but instead of appreciating the goodness of God, they persecutes, spread rumours and gossips bad things about my good intention. Every year without fail, I would pray to Lord Jesus, giving thanks for what He had done for me for the whole year and also what I should do for the following year. December 2010 was a very remarkable year for me because our Holy Spirit spoke within me and said “Let go of helping these stiffed neck people.” But as I was declaring it in FB, our Holy Spirit added more words, so I ended posting “Let Go and Let out.” I was amused at this revelation and immediately gave thanks and I knew what to do. Then, while in spirit, Father Abraham spoke to me with a laughter first, “Son, what you trying to do? Even if Moses or the prophets speak to them personally, they will not change their heart.” Wow, with this rally on by Father Abraham, I could move on and let go of this people. Without fail, I had been making eyes contact whenever chance on meeting them, waved my hands and smiled to these group of people but they would just walked passed me like a rock of ice, ignoring me completely. I have many other friends that truly treasure my friendship, so I had to let them go and foster better friendship with my true friends.

So, the next time someone reveal to you about someone else or a group of people, DO NOT be too quick to shut your ears and said “Judge not, that you be not judged”, but pray for Gift of Wisdom and Discernment, be a good listener, ask yourself these questions first:

1. What is the motive of this person telling you these things?

2. Is the person saying it out of vengeance or unforgiving heart? (You need to discern the spirit of the speaker).

3. What can you do to help?

4. Do I have prejudice against the speaker or the person or the group of people mentioned? (If you have prejudice due to someone had already gives you bad ideas of a person, politely tell the person that you cannot handle this and advice him or her to speak to other friends).

Remember, the Devil also knew how to use scripture verses to distract and creates doubts in Christian’s mind, read the story of when Jesus went out into the wilderness and was tempted by the Devil. In fact, as stated in the Bible, the devil will plant tares within the wheats overnight (symbolical meaning of giving one evil thoughts while the person’s did not guard his or her mind, sleeping!). So, there is no surprise that those who are not in spirit would be used by Satan to speaks words against Christians doing the will of God, that is correct fallen Christian so that they may be redeemed again.

Which side of the fence you are on? Are you bearing the fruit of Holy Spirit? How can one say to be a Godly, or God loving person if he or she don’t hate the unGodly acts or behavior of fellow Christians? Do some self check, do you exhibits any of the behavior as stated below?

“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers (gossipers), without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” 2 Tim 3:1-7

Here is the grand conclusion to the whole matter by King Solomon:

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” Eccl 12:13-14

Friends, do you have any secret things? Hidden in sub-conscious mind? Or things you swept under the carpets hopefully no one will uncover or hopefully people will forget? Have you ever preached wrong doctrines and swept under carpet, hoping that people will forget or don’t take notice? Do you know what? GOD KNOWS EVERYTHING!

You are my VIP

friends

There is no problem of me being able to quickly integrate into any group of people without much, as if I had already knew them by stretching out my hand and introduced myself. I thank Father Jesus for the boldness and love he had put in me.  So, I had opened up myself to everyone without reservation. Whenever I received wonderful messages or even wisdom words, I would not hesitate to share with anyone. I sent SMS, wrote articles in Esharingportal.com, and actively post into Facebook.com. Unfortunately, all these just gone into deaf ears. While many foreigners would click “Like” and commented with positive exaltive notes, only one or two local would response by clicking “Like” in my wall. In fact, certain numerous local would criticized negatively and even gossips amongst themselves about my motive in posting in Facebook.com and Esharingportal.com (as  been revealed to me via my Angels about them).

So I asked Father Jesus , “Why? Father Jesus, why people behaved this way? Why are they so cold? Even the chosen one also behaved this way?”

Father Jesus answered me one night “It is because you are not their VIP.”

I felt very sad about it while at the same time also felt pitiful for these group of people for not knowing how to cherish the important of fellowship and caring for one another. Then, our Holy Spirit, our comforter, directed me to a Bible verse; Mark 6:4(KJV) But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.”  The word “house” can be the symbolic meaning of extended “spiritual family”.  And also this wisdom words from King Solomon Prov 25:25 (KJV) “[As] cold waters to a thirsty soul, so [is] good news from a far country.”

I once arranged an appointment with a senior, of which, on the same day another sister-in-Christ were to meet after me. But the day came and I was being thrown behind and my meeting with this person was a harsh harsh one, our Holy Spirit had already instructed me to say nothing since I wasn’t really welcome for the meeting. Matt 10:41 “He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.”

Should I say thanks to those cold shoulder people for making me feel more and more like Lord Jesus? As a matter of fact, I had sent my last email in the hope that they will be be more caring for one another. In the email, I mentioned that even a very busy famous celebrity cared to takes time off to response to my post, given me much encouragement and exaltive rhema words. I pointed out to them that they ought to do the same for one another. Instead of reading with much understanding of the intention of the email, they were quick to get angry, complained and I was even commanded to apologise to these group of people for my sharing of good news. I did not know who intitiated this demand for me to apologised, but I did so with much joy because miraculously the email actually helped me uncover the truth which I was seeking for. The reaction of these group of people confirmed what our Holy Spirit had had already revealed to me. Truth separate people due divided opinion, biasism towards one group against the other.

Lord Jesus said “Do you think I came to bring peace to 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.” Luke 12:51-53

One of them even replied and said that she was glad that I was humble to apologise. (Obviously, she was the person who initiate all these commotion and gossippings, as she was quick to response my email).  Wait a minute, wasn’t helping people recognised their shortfall was the intention of this email? And yet it was being reversed to became a “test piece to check if I am humble to apologise?  Funny isn’t it. I am not sure why these people behaved this way? Was it guilt or hatred driven because someone had painted bad picture about me by gossiping? I do remember these people mentioned that they loves to “gossips”. Then, I gave prayer, our Holy Spirit opened my eyes and I saw a very clear picture, these were the same people who had suddenly turned cold towards me one day and avoided talking to me.

Trust me, whenever you came across people whom you are friendly with, SUDDENLY, stopped looking into your eyes and turned cold towards you, it is because someone had gossiped about you. Someone had throw cold ice water onto you!

Actually, my email wasn’t intended to be used for testing people but somehow our Holy Spirit had inspired me to write it in such a way that it  brought out the confirmation of the truth, as we knew HE is the Spirit of Truth. With this confirmation, I confidently wrote about the youth concerning the truth.

Some even commented that I am too imposing. Really? Was I too imposing or encouraging people to be more open and caring for one another? I love to study the pattern of people who posted online. People tends to be very expressive of their emotion in the FB and from these feedback and with the help of God’s wisdom, you can know their needs and especially of what they had gone through. Isn’t this is what senior people repetitively asked members to be more open about it? But too bad, the Agenda for the meeting takes priority and the opening for one to share and express themselves fully, was limited by THE TIMING and capacity of the group. No wonder, not many can be very open as a family member because all are so into being run by “The System“.  I had studied the pattern of couple of youths and a CGL who had been with Church for more than 10 years, started with voicing up and displeased with cold attitude, and then left church. Why aren’t the authorative leaders able to catch all these things while they are still warm? Leader only started to talk to people who had already make up their mind (cold attitude) and it was not only too late but also people felt insincered! If we could only be more pro-active, knowing and understood the person’s need even before they have the thought of leaving church, I think people would felt more loved. It is very easy to shroud away responsibility/accountability by saying that we had tried but since the person wanted to leave, let it be.

Friends, YOU ARE MY VIP, no matter what because I loved Father Jesus and I want to be like him. He sat down and have fellowship with tax collectors, sinners and even spoke the Samarthan woman at the well.

How can one claimed to be a family member or had accepted others as their own family members if even when doing little things for one another was not accorded. But instead, members were being scorn at and complained about by their fellow family member (always suspicious and doubtful of any good intention)?

Learn from our Lord Jesus on how he threats everyone as VIP?

1. He willingly die on the cross for anyone who want to receive Him as Lord and Saviour. You are His VIP to such extend that HE gave HIS life for you, even though you are still a sinners, he loved you unconditionally.

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

2. He spoke to The Samaritan Women at the well whom everyone despise.

The woman meets Jesus at a well (John 4:1-26)

3. He sat there and fellowship with sinners and tax collectors.

Jesus Eats with the Sinners, Publicans, Tax Collectors (Mark 2:13-17)

Lord Jesus is calling for people to have HIS DNA

Lord Jesus said “for I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink. I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothes Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.” Matt 25:42-43

Father Jesus asked, “Who then is willing to be like me?” ‘Who is willing to be my beggar to be sent to the field to test the hearts of these people?”
“You will go into the fields and farms to beg for attention to gave you food, drink, cloth and also when you are sick, beg for medicine.”
“Who is willing to be thrown into the prison, such that you will be despised because all words will be against you and nobody will visit you because many are ashamed of you because you speak no words as instructed?”
“Who is willing to be my beggar to beg for attention?”

But God, our Lord Jesus had found NONE! Very sad isn’t it?
Many are more willing to be the persecutors, accusers, liars, murderers, crossing over to the dark side because it is more comfortable.

It is better this way as we are accountable for everything resulted due to our action and inaction. Many likes to think that they can swept things under the carpet but  be careful, our God is a very detailed God, we must make ourselves accountable.  Listen to the advice of the King Solomon.

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgement, Including every secret thing, whether good or evil.”

Unless you are wiser than King Solomon, heed his advice.

Afternote : Actually, I had been dragging to write this notes because it really pains me to know that Christians of same spiritual family whom I loved and trusted behaved this way. But I must obey what my Senior partner had instructed me at end of 2011, “Let Go and Let out.”

Heed my brotherly advice. DON’T GET INTO GOSSIPS, IT IS EVIL! IT DESTROY RELATIONSHIP FOR SELFISH PURPOSE.

From my good friend, Tunde Adetola Adekoya

Also God hates gossips— Why??? It destroys 3 set of people because it is a powerful instrument in the hands of devil to slander & blackmail the believers.

1) It destroys the GOSSIPER- He/she is a tool in the hand of the devil to destroy others through dissemination of lies. And can never be free from the manipulation of the devil.

2) It destroys the HEARER of the gossips by coloring their faith,making them believe a lie and thereby connects with the works of the devil.

3) It destroys the OBJECT of the gossips(THE END TARGET) by creating a wrong notion of the person in the heart of the HEARERS making them take wrong position to his destiny contrary to the will of God.

Knowing that it is evil to gossips, why are certain Christians still doing that?

1. Intent. Gossipers often have the goal of building themselves up by making others look bad and exalting themselves as some kind of repositories of knowledge.

**2. The type of information shared. Gossipers speak of the faults and failings of others, or reveal potentially embarrassing or shameful details regarding the lives of others without their knowledge or approval. Even if they mean no harm, it is still gossip.

Thus, lies and unknowingly using gossips to destroy the prophets is the work of Satan through its agent, Spirit of Jezebel.

**Pointing out mistakes with love to another person doesn’t fall under the category of gossips, especially if one obey the Biblical guide Matt 18:15-17 “Morever if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more,  that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.”

Beware! Accusation Agents are around

This is the true happening that certain church encountered. The job of these recruited Accusation Agents is having the same purpose of Gossipers:-

1. Intent. Gossipers often have the goal of building themselves up by making others look bad and exalting themselves as some kind of repositories of knowledge.

2. The type of information shared. Gossipers speak of the faults and failings of others, or reveal potentially embarrassing or shameful details regarding the lives of others without their knowledge or approval. Even if they mean no harm, it is still gossip.

The Accusation Agents

“But when men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.” Matt 13:25

Accusation Agents – People who are being infested with false doctrines and recruited to became an accuser of church.

The target people to be recruited by whichever organisation who is seeking vengeance are as follows :-

1. Those people who are not strongly rooted in faith with our Holy Spirit.
– the biblical knowledge is shallow, these false prophets engaged the logical mind of young christians to influence and convince them of their doctrines and believes.

2. Those people who are strong in spirit and biblical knowledge but have lusts for authority, pride and other worldly things.
– the individuals’ desire to be the head over people, lusts for worldly things and also too much pride. These false prophets fulfilled their desires and recruited them.

3. Those people who are seeking vengeance against church.
– perhaps these group are the easiest target for the false prophets to recruitment them over, sharing with them the “same boat syndromes”, rubbing salt over their wounds and pouring kerosene over a burning fire to make them hate church more, gained their trust and using them as instrument to cause harm to church.

Beware! These Accusation Agents are around in many corners of church, their faked lights don’t last and true believers can easily test them by their Spiritual fruit!

Accusation Agents

My previous article had already reviewed much about the false prophets building church for their selfish purpose. The Evil Spirit of Jezebel is real and is already in operation in certain sector of the church influencing; not just the young christian, but also matured christians who had became their “boat people“. In certain occasion,  we must remind ourselves not to get too comfortable with one another. It is know fact that even your closest friend or someone you had mentored can fall into the lusts and prostitution business (symbolic meaning) of Jezebel without knowing. Had Adam not fallen even personally groomed by God? Had Judas who was one of Lord Jesus’ disciple not betrayed Him for money? You can read my notes Click here.  Being in “the boat” you cannot see Lord Jesus of His revelations about the evil spirit lurking in “the boat“. Thus, you need the people from outside of “the boat” to point out to you of these evil operation. Unfortunately, many could not accept nor face the truth being spoken. These prophets who was sent by our Lord Jesus had been rejected, abused, persecuted and worst off, being gossiped upon by “these boat people” who were being used by the evil spirit’s principalities and dark forces. (laterally destroying them). Why people behaved this way? It is PRIDE!

Listed below is the repeat of what I had writtened.

HOW TO GET RID OF THE CONTROLLING SPIRIT?

First, we must rid ourselves of Jezebel’s ways. We can not cast out lust when we harbor lust in our lives. We can not bring down a spirit of control if we use manipulation and hype to control our congregations. We must examine our own ways, and repent of Jezebel. Second, it takes Jehu. Although Elijah was Jezebel’s enemy, it took JEHU to trample Jezebel. Jehu took no prisoners and showed no mercy to Jezebel. He had singleness of purpose and was driven. As he approached Jezebel those who saw his chariot noted he “drives furiously” (2 Ki 9:20) When others offered peace and compromise, Jehu responded “How can there be peace as long as the harlotries and witchcrafts of Jezebel are many?” (2 Ki 9:22) Jehu would not rest until Jezebel was dead. Her pleasures could not attract him. Her threats did not deter him. He would not tolerate Jezebel.

Jesus says we too can not TOLERATE Jezebel. (Revelation 2:20) We must learn the prophetic power of the word “No!” We must give no ground!When Jezebel attempted to captivate Jehu, he did not even allow himself to be drawn into conversation with her. Instead, he called on her eunuchs to cast her down from her balcony. Those with the Jehu anointing will call to Jezebel’s emasculated slaves, and they too will cast her down!

Lastly as Lord Jesus had said “Vengeance belongs to to me; I will repay, says the Lord” Romans 12:9

“I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:18

“But when men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.” Matt 13:25

This is a symbolic meaning of event, when men slept means when you are too comfortable like sleeping, not on guard, the false prophets will plant false doctrines, believes and accusations to the unsuspecting Christians and be “bought over” by them.
So it is prudent to be on guard at all time to lookout for these “enemies” lest they influence and take away your hard earned disciples.

“But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appear, so the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? how then does it have tares?’ He saidth them, ‘An ememy has done this.” The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up. ‘Let them both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn” Matt 13:26-30
The same similar meaning of Roman 12:19.

Don’t you want to have the gift of Wisdom and Discernment? You want to able to spot the “enemies” even before it can approach your farm! If you can’t recognise the enemy from approaching the farm, at least have the spiritual ability to pick up the bad seedling of tares before they grow with the wheat and entangled tightly with them such that it in not wiser for you to remove them because you will also removed the wheat who are closely entangled with them!

Lord Jesus had said ‘Let them both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn” Matt 13:30

Very important! In whatever steps you do, make sure our Holy Spirit is in control of your action, HE is your teach ALL teacher. “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, HE WILL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS, and bring to your remembrance all things that I have said to you.” John 14:26.

Exposed! Why people formed their own church?

[relevant-to-adsense]
Exposed! Why people formed their own church? 

Building

There is nothing wrong with forming a church. It is the motive behind forming a church that needed to be questioned. I am not going to write a long thesis of why and how a church is being formed. Allow me to go straight into the discussion on topics of “Why people formed their own church”.

Lord Jesus had commanded “Go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15.

If forming church as the obedience child of God, with a selfless heart and soul, only doing the will of God, then the person is right with God. But unfortunately, NOT ALL are obedience child of God, and as mentioned in the Bible there are false prophets, false tongues and especially we are in the last days, more false prophets are already in operation  and the concept of one world is proceeding to usher in the arrival of the Anti-Christ.  I don’t care if as of 5th Dec 2010 many people had identified and prophesied that the Anti-Christ is already here. As in accordance with the Bible, the Anti-Christ is well liked by people, he is as loving as Lord Jesus and he have the capability to perform many miracles and draw 1/3 of believers to him. The Anti-Christ has to have all these abilities as mentioned in the bible and he is not so easily outright recognised. NONE had come close to it!

For discussion purpose, I had categorized them into four groups of people.

1.        Replaced Lord Jesus. This group is the most ridiculous and absurd as reported by some Christians online, they claimed to have replaced Lord Jesus as son of God. The Bible had clearly stated that before His second coming, many things must happened first. Read whole Chapter of Matt 24 and Book of Daniel. Yet, we have many people being deceived, and these group of people blindly followed the man, selfishly upsurge the throne of Lord Jesus for personal gain. Why people follow him? That is because, they can’t see Lord Jesus and they must find the easy way out, that is to be able to see a replacement Jesus in the form of normal human being and who speaks only words that is pleasing for them to hear against the biblical truth.

2.       Self doctrine. There are many self doctrine churches out there in the world. I would only talk about two prominent groups that I came across. These two  groups have had the similar unhappy root cause that stirred them into wanting to preach and influence people based on their own doctrine (based their own opinion that their Pastor had preached certain sermon that is not pleasing to their ears). So, they had committed and swear to themselves that they will not preached the same way as their Pastors and they have to fulfill their selfish purpose.

 Self doctrine church A.  As recorded in youtube.com, she criticized online of her Pastor’s preaching “How can this Pastor preached that God is a jealous God?”  And being unhappy with this preaching, she formed her own doctrine that Heaven and God is up to your imagination and thinking. Your well being and God is put into your head, your thinking. There is no problem of  her getting people to follow her  as she is a famous celebrity in her own talk show and what she said is very pleasing to the ears. It is interesting to know that one of her former member came to CHC to gave testimony of how she got out of this secular church and was almost killed by the demonic force and she testified that a senior of that church had the demon spoken through her in a hoarse male voice during one meeting on stage.

Self doctrine church B.  As recorded in youtube.com, this man also criticized his Pastor’s preaching of red letters warning by Lord Jesus of people going into Hell.  He said to himself that there should not be mention of any condemnations or  the “Hell” word. So, he proclaimed and committed to himself that he will form his own church with only Grace Gospel preaching of salvation. Today he had successfully mislead many into believing his doctrine that “Once saved, your sins are forgiven past, present and even future sins are forgiven.” Many followers loved his grace preaching,i.e., no mention of punishment for sins committed after accepted Christ and no mention of Hell.  To support his Grace gospel preaching, he had many parts of Bible avoided. His preaching is such that he only selected certain bible passages gels with his grace gospel preaching  and this distorted many true biblical teaching of Lord Jesus. His sermon also promote the thoughts of mocking and making fun of Moses and various part of old testaments.  It is not difficult to identify these groups of people by their distinct doctrine that “They can never sin again as they had already accepted Lord Jesus as savior.” And these group of people gets very agitated whenever someone mentioned Bible passage concerning Hell.

3.       Different operation method. This group of people still uphold the biblical truth as taught by their former parent church’s pastor. They decided to form their own church because their mode of operation is different. They still honor their former bigger church pastor and their reason of why forming  own church is for different method of reaching out, to reach out to smaller group of people. Their doctrine and teaching is the same as their former parent church and they preached the true Gospel teaching of Lord Jesus with the balanced doctrine of red letter words spoken by Lord Jesus and grace teaching of Lord Jesus and Apostle Paul.  

4.       Church without walls. The ministry of Church is built upon the two beams of the cross: the “vertical” beam of loving God wholeheartedly, and the “horizontal” beam of loving people fervently. This can be found in Matthew 22:37-40, representing the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.  The third aspect of the church ministry is the Cultural Mandate, also known as Christ in Culture. The church believe that God has called them to engage culture creatively, and be the salt and light in the marketplace! “Church Without Walls” was officially registered with the Registry of Societies on 16 August 1997 as “City Harvest Community Services Association.” The is no self doctrine as the basis for the foundation of building up of this Church. 

You should have your own ability to discern and decide which is the true Church of God for you.

There is no perfect Church in any corner of the earth and especially, even Lord Jesus had mentioned and cautioned many times in Bible. You can examine a church by its fruits.  

Matt 7:13-21 “Enter by the narrow gate; or wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are ravenous wolves. “You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, nor a bad tree bear good fruit.  Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire(Hell). Therefore by their fruits you will know them. Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord” shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.”

 Read the article about “The Composite Churches

End Notes:

For the church, try to understand as I explain in parable. You may see the church as a fruit tree but there are certain branches that are producing bad fruits, the church has to find out which root (root cause or which part fallen from first love) had been rotten and must identify the worms that is attacking it to cause it to rot. The church needs to spent time and effort to uncover many ground to discover it.

Three Levels of Spiritual Growth

Introduction

In church service sermon, various topics were being preached. There were times, the church would preached about the important value of being as humble as a child. Then on another service, the church would preached about the important value of servant hood and then yet in another sermon,  the church would preach of yet another important value of being the son or friends of God. At the back of my mind, I was trying to co-related all of them together but somehow it leads me to some confusion as to what value should I exhibit in my Christian walk.

 Sometimes I received Gift of knowledge from our Holy Spirit such that I must tell the person in the same manner as prophets in the old testament had spoken to Kings and authorities; that is to rebuke the person involved of the wrong attitude towards God, our Lord Jesus. Then, within my own sub-consciousness, I was reminded to behave as servant of God; that is to obey the authority and not to say anything about them. I was really confused,  then I tried even to remind myself that maybe I should be as humble as a child, just keep quiet, swept everything under the carpet and pretend I didn’t received the knowledge.

Then one day, our Holy Spirit revealed to me that there are actually three levels of spiritual growth for Christians. With much excitement over this revelation, I penned down everything in plain English  and recorded my second audio speech. Let us pray, “Father Jesus, we thank you for this wonderful knowledge that you had inspired me to share with others. So that all us will grow spiritually to do the will of God. Amen”.

Chapter 1 – Child Hood

My first audio speech talks about knowing our Holy Spirit intimately and also acknowledging the existence of  Angels assigned to protect you and also you already have the Gift of prophecy upon baptism by the Holy Spirit.

In this second audio speech, I will touch on 3 levels of spiritual growth; 1) Childhood, 2) Servant hood, 3) Sonship (or friend of God). Everyone should be able to progress through these sequential stages of spiritual growth. You will find out what is required of you and what our Lord Jesus can do for you.

 The main key to Kingdom of Heaven is that you must be reborn again.

John 3:3 “Most assurely, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

The disciple did not understood what Lord Jesus was saying to them. One of them even said that must one go back into the womb of his mother to be born again. It is quite a funny statement really. What Lord Jesus means is that one must be willing to reduce yourself to nothing; giving up self, your mindset must completely renewed, cleanse up by the blood of Lord Jesus by accepting him as your Lord and saviour. What matter most is that once you are reborn, the old man in you had died and a new spirit man live in you and you are able to think like Job in the old testament, for he said:

“Naked, I come out of the womb and the lord has the right to take.” That means giving up self completely, pride, possession and all the worldliness and nail them onto the cross, Lord Jesus took them all away from you.

Let us look at how new born baby behave in order to understand the meaning of being reborn as a child. First of all, they are purely innocent, a new being born out of this world. They do not know what is happening in the world, the right and wrong. Do you expect a few months old baby knows what is right or wrong? (Was this not the original state of Mind for Adam before he sinned? Adam has no knowledge of right or wrong, absolute obedience to God only) Baby only knows one thing, that is to cry when they are hungry with their mouth opened big big. That’s right, in the same way, Lord Jesus wants you to cry out loud with your mouth open out big big, asking for nourishing food. Thus baby needs milk to nourish them for their growth, they are not ready for solid food. Next, when they consumed food, they will urinate and pass out motion, thus they will cry too. The same for you at this stage of spiritual growth, as you take in more spiritual food and create messes big and small, you will feel comfortable, example; you assessed things wrongly and ended up worsening a situation due to wrong advice and you needed someone more experience to help you  “clean up”. Like a baby, you have not learned how to clean up yet, you need helpers.

 As the baby grow older, they will take slightly more solid food such as porridge or cereal, and at this stage they learn how to talk. Sorry to all the mother. Baby said their first word “mum mum” meaning they are asking for food not calling the mother, Mom. Then, they learned how to call “Papa”, first. Mother may find this very unfair since they took care of the baby, but that is the fact, survey found out that baby tends to learn how to call papa first. Lord Jesus like all his children to call him Abba Father. (I knew some people will dispute on this, but don’t everyone acknowledged that Lord Jesus is now one with God in heaven, so that equates to calling God Abba Father too).

 As they progress in their growth, they became more knowledgeable, and started to ask for things from Papa or mommy. But everything was being planned by parents because children do not know how to ask what is best for themselves. Sometimes, the parent obliged their kids, and gives them things that may not be suitable for them just to make them happy.

Of course at this stage of growth, the children will become more and more demanding as they are more equipped with knowledge. They are now more hungry for 2 things, for more food and knowledge by asking lots of questions. Like “What is this for? Papa, mommy” Why things happened that way? Papa, mommy” The how, where and when. Parents, do not be upset, be patience, they are learning. At least you have a normal growing child.

But in Kingdom of Heaven, Lord Jesus will always give you the right things. So, being a child of God, you don’t have to worry about anything.

Matt 6:26: “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?”

 Matt 6:28 “So why you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin.

Matt 6:31: “Therefore, do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear’

So, in the same way for spiritually born Christian, Lord Jesus wants his children to be hungry for his food, the living words of God, i.e Read the Bible daily. Be hungry for Bible knowledge  and spiritual gifts. You must be able to reverence the Holy Spirit as your greatest teacher. Do not push yourself to go for Bible school unless you had engaged our Holy Spirit as your solid foundational Rock to support your move to higher level of biblical learning. Christians who do not have our Holy Spirit as their foundation teacher will most likely graduated as academic Christian rather than disciple Christian. Know the different between being a Christian and learning to be a Christian? This has been preached many times, and yet Christian are not getting it. The former is one Christian who is born of the Spirit while the later one is born of the flesh or alternatively, you can call them systematically born Christian. But don’t get me wrong, there are people who are being reborn while during the Bible study or SOT.  What I try to emphasised is that it is more beneficial if you already have the Holy Spirit as your Biblical teacher. System Christian are those who had passed through the Academic process of building up Christian lifestyle without the Holy Spirit and they thought that they are being a Christian by doing things a Christian should do, eg attending Church, Cell group meetings, ministries, mission and others. This group of people are under the same category as “the rich young man” Lord Jesus spoke about in the Bible. One big question can be asked? Are you doing the will of God? Can you affirmly say that you are doing the will of God and on what basis? Doing the will of God has to be birthed by the Holy Spirit in the way of revelations,  dreams or visions and followed by more revelations and confirmations. Well, what is required of you to progress through this spiritual childhood growth? Simple answer but not an easy way, “Receive Kingdom of God as a child.” While Lord Jesus will provide you with the baptism of the Holy Spirit who will dwelled in you and teaches you ALL things; knowledge increment from revelations and progression through life with constant birthing of dreams and visions will  steer you from faith to faith and glory to glory.  Hallelujah!  All hopes will be realised not at once but many times as Lord Jesus had said “I am the creator of all faith and the finisher.” In fact, before anyone knows you, Lord Jesus had already knew you. You must be a mouldable clay so that he can shape you to the instrument that he wanted you to be and be usable for Kingdom of God. So, you are being chastened and now you are already growing and maturing spiritually, you are ready to go into the next stage of spiritual growth, the Servanthood. Congratulations.

Chapter 2 – Servant Hood

Lord Jesus once said “I come to this world to serve, not to be serve.”  Let’s take a look at the story of Joseph. How, from telling the truth of a dream, got his brothers envy and hated him even more.

Ge:37:9: “Look I have another dream, and this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.’

Ge:37:10: So he told it to his father and his brothers, and his father rebuked him and said to him, “what is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall your mother and I and  your brothers indeed come to bow down to the earth before you?”

This is the starting point where Joseph, in telling the truth was envied by his brothers and this turned into hatred. Thus, the Bible taught us not to envy but gives praise to God for anyone who has something better than you. The whole story on how Joseph was being sold as slave to the Egypt and was later make the Governor of Egypt by Pharaoh can be found from Genesis Chapter 39 to 47  It was actually a prophecy that we has had the privileged to know about it because it was written in the Bible. The reason why Joseph can be promoted many level was, firstly he fulfilled his role as a good servant event under Egyptian rule and he is able to prophesised for the King which is the apparent Authority.  Having the Gift of Prophecy is thus very important, you already have the Gift of prophecy as mentioned in my 1st Audio speech, first, for yourself then for others.

One thing important knowledge I would like to share with all. Satan is blind, he do not know the battle plan of God and he cannot see nor distinguished exactly who are the one who have real faith in God. He is the King of all lies, he needs to work through someone. Just as he is a snake, he needs to sense with his tongue on those people who have openings in their soul,  caused by having pride, lusts, and all sort sins like unforgiveness. These are all hot spots that Satan can sense, penetrate and make use of to influent you to go against God. That’s why you must always be on good faith and guard your heart. Take a look at Old Testament:-

Job:1:7: And the LORD said to Satan, Where do you come from?  Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking  back  and forth on it.

Job:1:8: And the LORD said to Satan, have you considered my servant Job, there is none like him on the earth, a blameless man, one that fear God, and shuns evil?

You can see that Satan is blind. He can’t see.

Job:1:21: And said, naked I came out from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return to there: the LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.

Such is the character of a servant. They always serve the Lord. And whatever the Lord ordered punishment onto him, he will not complain. He still bless the name of the Lord. At time like this, being a servant means you are subject to enslave by authority. Suffered test and persecution, even by own people who would make you a slave. In the end, Job won the favour from God while his 3 friends must be interceded by him  because of their ignorant, they had offended God and God would not speak  to them.

Job, was being rewarded many times more. This is the longest, difficult path that all Christian have to go through. A servant is one who is able to obey the authority. He don’t question the authority. This is the most crucial stage of spiritual growth where you will be put under apparent authority like Joseph and yet is able to recognise and work all things out within the realm of the supreme authority,  Abba Father Jesus. Such ability needs Wisdom from God. Many persecutions and tests will be apportioned to you as a servant. It is a real chastening process where like real gold will pass through the fire and became a more refined pure gold. The faith in Lord Jesus is even stronger as you progress through this process of spiritual growth. Christians have to hold on to their faith, endure to the end, do not be afraid or give up the fighting. God will not test you beyond your ability to hold onto to your faith.

1Cor 10:13:”No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able but with temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
Act 15:10: “Now therefore, why do you test God by putting a yoke on the neck of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear”

Being able to pass through the servant hood not only strengthen your faith but also increases your spiritual Gifts. You will be like prophets moving from one ground to another telling people of God’s messages and prophesise for people. Many time, when you are on mission, you probably not allowed to have financial prosperity, this has been clearly explained in the Esharingportal.com article, it is a funny title actually, “Clink, Clonk, Clank not allowed on Mission.”

 Knowing and understanding the requirement to be a servant is so important that our Lord Jesus demonstrate this in the last super.

John 13:13-24 “Jesus washed his disciple feets. You call me teacher and Lord, and you said well, for so I am. If I then your Lord and teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.”

Being a Servant of God, everything has been provisioned for by our Abba Father Jesus, and he gave you abundant so that you can share with you immediate neighbouring brothers and sisters, you just have to be in absolute obedience to our Holy Spirit and you can progress to the next Spiritual level, the sonship or friend of God.

Chapter 3 – Sonship (Friend of God)

This is the wish of our Lord Jesus, though we must reverence him as our Abba father, our supreme authority, he really wants us to communicate with him as though he is your friend. You are now being exalted to this highest level of Spiritual Growth.

Lord Jesus was the Son of God because he had not failed to defeat the enemy both on earth and lowest part of Hell by dying on the Cross to be our saviour. While Lord Jesus was on earth, he had to reverence God as Father. Now that He is in heaven as ONE with God, we ought to call him our Abba Father. Many parts of the Bible is written as such, Lord Jesus is the Son of God and it is correct in logical theoretical sense. There are people out there, a wolf in sheep skin reverenced himself as chosen Son of God, later claimed his status as equal to Lord Jesus and now even said and proclaimed that he had replaced Lord Jesus, that is Blasphemy!  So, if we can call and reverence Lord Jesus as our Abba Father, then in our mind and spirit we are admitting that we can’t go straight to God but the only way is through Lord Jesus because He is our spiritual father. Not calling nor accepting Lord Jesus as spiritual father also have the risk of Christians worshipping their senior or leader as their idols and thus not considering Lord Jesus as their first call of consultant, the First Love.

James 2:23-24  “And the scripture was fufilled which says, :Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for his righteousness. And he was called the friend of God.”

You see then a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. Being a son of God, you knew the spiritual battle plan of your father, you are proactive, knowing what to do next. Unlike a servant where you will do only as instructed, neither are you a child, do not know even how to ask for the right thing.  Abba Father Jesus will reveal to you his spiritual battle plan. You are his trusted friend. At this level, you are a Matured Christian, being regarded as true son or daughter of God and you will be able to wield the Sword of God which stands for the living words and the Truth.   You are able to think and wish for things exactly according to God’s will. Many times your wish is being fulfilled without even having prayed for it because you are righteous with God and you only do and say things that Abba Jesus allows you. You are the warrior of God, fearless of the world, ready to put on the Spiritual warfare gear anytime when called upon to go for war. It would be funny if our Holy Spirit had already revealed to you what you will received and yet you had to ask in prayer for things that you knew you will received. Father may speak to you. “Why doubts and ask of it again? You have little faith!” Of course, there are time where Lord Jesus want you to pray for it, such is when you aren’t sure of the battle plan installed for you.

While Lord Jesus was on earth, he relevant God as his father

John 15:1-2 “ I am the true vine, and My father is the vine dresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away, and every branch that bear fruits He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”

He wants us to reverence him as father and you cannot be a Son of God,  Abba Father Jesus if you were not born of the Spirit and progress through these three levels of Spiritual Growth.

John 15:15 “ No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing, but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.

Abraham was called a friend of God because he is faithful even willing to offer his son as sacrifice when God commanded his to do so.

Genesis 22:2 “Take now your son, your only son Isaac whom you love and got the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering.”

But Abraham is not God, had he sacrifice his son, he would have equal God but God didn’t let him and decided that his son’s life should be spared, instead a ram caught in a thicket by its horn were being offered as burnt offering. We now know, only God offered his only son Jesus as the sacrifice to be the Lamb to die for our sin.

Conclusion: Since you had gone through all the three level of spiritual growths, as you are lead by the holy spirit, there is no problem of you lowering down to whatever level. Sometimes you may have to humble down to be a child, listening to people who are young in spirit, by listening, you can help them actually because you are putting yourself at the lowest level in line with them so that you can understand them better and communicate. Sometimes you have lower to the level of servant hood and sometimes you have to exercise the authority as the Son of God. This is possible only if you are born of the spirit and you had gone through the three level of spiritual growth.

Let’s us pray. “Thank Lord Jesus for this wonderful sharing of knowledge, I pray for everyone who had listened to this audio message that their life will be transformed through the three level of spiritual growth. I also pray in Jesus’ name for those who are still in bondage to the worldliness and selfishness, I pray that they will be release from these bondage. I pray that they will read the bible and understand what Lord Jesus you had warned us about sign of Jonah who was thrown into the belly of the big fish and he repented and did the will of God. Lord Jesus, father you also reminded us of Lot’s wife, how she turned back desiring for the good life that she had. Lord Jesus thank you for the knowledge that one should not turn back for selfishness and lusts for worldliness or we will die just like Lot’s wife who was turned into a pillar of salt. In Jesus’ name, we would like to bless those who had listened to this audio speech and may God bring them from faith to faith and glory to glory. In Jesus precious name, Amen.”

Hello Doctor, I don’t need medication

Work as senior Technician from Sept 1976 to Nov 1999

I ROM (register of marriage) my wife on May 1986 and had our actual wedding 1987 Year End, we had a short honeymoon in Penang because I was not allowed to tour other country at that time as I was selected to go to USA for training and then attachment to Luke AFB (Air Force Base) located in Phoenix Arizona, USA.

Life was pretty normal and my wife bear me two sons while I was back in Singapore. From 1995 to 1997, I was deployed again to Phoenix Arizona, USA. This time, my wife went with me with the addition of two kids. Then I came back again to Singapore sometimes July 1997. At that time, I was running the Section of 46 over technicians as Section WO-in-Charge. I was in the Aircraft Structural Repair Section.

Change of Officer in charge, indecisive and irresponsible civilian engineer

From a military officer holding the rank of Capt, our Flight had a change to a Civilian Engineer, probably equivalent to the rank of Capt. This new civilian in command was very indecisive in many area, very oppressive and unreasonable. He must be the worst officer commander I had ever came across. Many times he would expect me to make decision, and yet always criticized. He gave his reason of giving me this appointment Section Warrant-officer-in-charge was to enable me to make decision on on manpower and technical issues. I observed and felt bad for my sub-ordinates having to work overtime to generate aircraft. In this military world, many things is by command decision. Example, at time we estimated the time needed to repair an aircraft was two days, people in Ops would force down onto us to complete the repair work by the next day because they needed the number of aircrafts to be in the air by certain timing. That causes lots of work pressure, apart from repairing we also have to fulfill the modifications and F16 is not the only fighter aircraft types we worked on. Many time this civilian officer would want to score point by volunteering projects even though he knew of our tight schedule and I felt bad that many of my sub-ordinates have had worked long over time hour without much rest. I, being their section leader had to instruct them to do the extra project that this civilian OC had volunteered. One of the project, I could never forget was to convert a A4 Skyhawk carcass into a “toot toot” train for the open house carnival in Paya Lebar Airport. Two A4 Skyhawk carcasses was given to us to work on, one as a spare. Then he had more ideas, he wanted to convert one into an training aircraft. This OC was out of his mind, our building was not designed to take in any aircraft, not enough space unless we modify the entrance door and remove many workshop tables, but he insisted that we have to make it happen.

Then we have these ‘Efficient email system’ those people on top would just need to have ideas everyday and they would key in their plans and email out. Many times someone else on top sat on it and by the time the email reached us from our OC, it was like 2 months job we were required to finished within a few days or 2 weeks. We do not know who was the culprit who sat on the email but we can’t argue with higher ranking person. Many times, unreasonable command decision were given like, next day we have to sent 5 men to attend the funeral parade or to support some sport event as spectators. While many people on top can easily just type some command decision by the click of the keyboard and mouse, while over at our end we were struggling with our limited time and manpower needed for aircraft generation.

This OC was really an irresponsible and evasive king. Many times, when he knew that he had to confront officer higher in rank and he knew he that can’t solve the problem, he would go away to any place and had used the excuse that he need to discuss something couple of times, leaving me to handle the situation. Then when the higher officer had left, he would come back and criticize and scold me for making such decision. Whenever he was away, he was not contactable and he warned us not to call him. No matter what problem I highlighted to him or decision make since he was not around, he would criticize. Whichever way, I moved on the right or left, he would criticized. At times, I told that him that he has to make the decision since the technical problem is not within my scope to solve and I highlighted that he had to make the decision or call the higher ranking officer but he insisted that this kind of simple task of handling officer I could do it and then I must inform him of the outcome, and thereafter he would criticized again. I just can’t bear to instruct my sub ordinates to do tasks and also many of them refused to carry out job that was deemed ridiculous. So I was sandwiched in between the OC and my sub-ordinates.

Lapsed into depression.

Soon, I went into depression with so many conflicting area to take care and I also lost my ability to control my men. One thing about me is that I was quite soft hearted, I can’t bear to see my sub-ordinate over worked and a lot of things I took it upon myself. I was also in charge of the training department for the whole flight and I was told by my OC to download to another person and I did, the other person did not do the good job as I had done. My depression from bad went to worst, I could not sleep at night and at work place, could not do much as I was really depressed being pressurized from all sides especially with a OC who can’t make decision and yet want to score points by volunteering projects. I couldn’t take the pressure and on the verge of breaking down.

The voice beckoning me to commit suicide.

Being pressurized from many sides, the OC give instructions, my sub-ordinate don’t corporate. The problems seems to be very huge like giants and could not be solved. I had suicidal thoughts, there was inner voice continuously speaking in my mind beckoning to end my life and it was very persuasive at telling me that ending my life will settle everything. At time, I tried to steer my car into a head on collision but my conscience spoke to me that I could have killed other innocent people, they may have family to take care of. The picture of other people’s family livelihood steered me back on the proper path again, then I drove straight home with lots of thought going in my mind. I had attempted this on a few occasion but my conscience always helped me steer back into proper path again.

There was once while at home, I woke up very early in the morning 5am, the voice in mind is beckoning to kill myself again, I stayed on the 10th floor, I ran down to the 6th floor and wanted to jump down but than my conscience spoke to me again, “Do I have enough insurance coverage to cover my two sons and family.” So I went back home instead and looked at my insurance policies, barely cover $600,000. Not sufficient, I thought, I needed at least $1.3 million. So I didn’t do it.

My wife dragged me to a clinic

My wife seeing me not any better, dragged me to a clinic. The doctor prescribed me medication that can help me with the chemical imbalance. I felt slightly better after taking the medicine everyday but this medicine had some effect on me, I was slow in my work and felt sleepy easily. The work pressure was increasing and new tasks were given to me. The Warplan Readiness had issues that was not solved by the person handling it since three years ago and I was expected to come up with solution to solve it within months. While I was doing night shift, I don’t have to go out to the field to work because I sent my sub ordinate out while I station in office as control center. Then I saw a poster being pasted onto the crew room wall that said “If you have problem, call this number 6XXX XXXX.” I took down the number and I called the next morning telling the help department about my depression problem. Then I was arrange to have an interview with the department and I was referred to a SAF Psychiatrist, Colonel (Dr) Ang Yong Guan.

Colonel (Dr) Ang Yong Guan, was very professional in his work. He started to ask about my well being. Then I did most of my talking and I trusted him. So he asked if I had suicidal thoughts, I told him I had. Then, the first time I saw him he prescribed to me a tablets, Red and White in colour. I had forgotten the dosage, 4 capsules a day I think. This helped to maintain chemical balance so that my brain can absorbed more nutrient. When I returned to my office after 2 weeks of MC, my OC talked to me, he said he wanted to relieve me of all the responsibility, just concentrate on doing training notes. At that point of time, I was telling myself that my this career can considered gone. Perhaps at that time I wasn’t clear in my mind but now I knew Colonel (Dr) Ang must had told him to relieve me of my work.

I must had seen Colonel (Dr) Ang Yong Guan for about 3 months, and the medicine dosage was reduced to I think 2 tablets a day. With all the responsibilities relieved, I have no more suicidal thoughts. Then, one of my nephew birthday was celebrated at Macdonald at Yishun, everybody was so concerned about me, tapping my shoulders giving me a lot of encouragement, and advised me not to anyhow think. Asked me to think of happy and positive things.

Then one day, I remembered I once read an article on how a doctor had seen a patient with migraine problem, and prescribed tablets of glucose to her but told her it was Panadol. Then she took the medicine as panadol and told the doctor that her migraine was cured. The doctor actually proved that sickness are mostly self induced. From this incident I told myself that my depression was psychological, and I told myself that I can be cured too, I don’t need the medicine, it was causing me to be slow in my action and sleepy. So I reduced my dosage from 2 capsules a day to 1 capsule a day and then on second week, 1 capsule in two days and by the third week, I was completely free from taking the medicine. I think it was on the 6th or 7th month I had appointment with Colonel (Dr) Ang again and I told him that don’t have to take the medicine anymore. Then he ask if I would like to get a discharge from my regular service. At the same time I confided to Colonel (Dr) Ang that my mother was diagnosed with stomach cancer and was having the Kimo Therapy. Colonel (Dr) Ang further informed me that, I may relapsed into depression again if I were to be exposed to the same ambient, and again asked if I would like to get a discharge from my regular service. Then after a while I replied that I would like to have a discharged. Not being fully recovered, I had a call from my father saying that my mom couldn’t make it on 27 Oct 1999. I was telling myself that I was not well and I have many tasks need to finish. Then I went home after office hour, it was too late, I wasn’t able to be by my mother bedside when our Lord Jesus took her to Heaven. I was very remorseful at that time.

Fully healed and discharged from the RSAF

End Nov 1999, I was declared depression completely healed and the letter drafted by Colonel (Dr) Ang Yong Guan had helped me to be able to get away from the place of oppression and I work as Real Estate since then.

Hello Doctor, I don’t need medication!

I would like to thank people I for my healing:-

First of all , I would like to thank God for giving everyone of us conscience, it was the conscience that saved my life.

Secondly, I would like to thank my wife for having dragged me to a clinic

Thirdly, I would like to thank Colonel (Dr) Ang Yong Guan for being a very professional Psychiatrist and he was the President of the Singapore Psychiatric Association for two consecutive terms, and is currently the founding Chairman of the Action Group for Mental Illness. I would like to thank Samuel Neo from the SAF counselling department who referred me to Colonel (Dr) Ang. And, all my friends and relatives for their support and encouragement.

I do sincerely hope that all the friends and relatives who has been standing by the person who was stressed to continue to stand by their side even though they had been healed. This was my personal experience, having recovered from depression, I really needed to get back to my normal life again but all the friends and relatives moved out of my sight probably because their thought is that I am alright, so I don’t need help anymore. Actually, when a person just recovered from depression, he needed help even more because during treatment only the professional psychiatrist can help the person. I wrote a poems depicting my story titled “The opposite of man.”

I like the PAP’s slogan “Have money gives money to help, have no money offer your strength to help.”

Get to know a great man, Apostle Paul, he was under tremendous stress at many occasion and yet didn’t slipped into depression, because he had someone inside him, that is our Saviour Lord Jesus Christ.

Paul said “We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken, struck down, but not destroyed.” 1 Corinthians 4:8-9

Today I can handle stress better than most people because I have the Holy Spirit in me and He taught me many things and I learned how to fellowship with the depressions of people because I have been through this before. One truth, when one have to face thing themselves because there is no friend around, no one to trust, always there is hope because you’ll have Lord Jesus inside of you all the time and he can help you PUSH out all external pressure trying to compress and collapse you.

Our psychiatrist favorite verse, we want to be like Lord Jesus. Luke 2:52, “which says that Jesus increased in wisdom, stature, in favor with God and with man.”


If you knew that you have the symptoms of depression; like getting sleepless, dropping hairs, no appetite, easily worried over small things, don’t let it slips into more serious condition. Accept Lord Jesus and pray to him for love and peace to come to you.
If you need someone to talk to, I can be contacted at +065 81631482 Also, make sure you see a qualified Psychiatrist as soon as possible.

Pictures drawn by a schizophrenia patient turned into demonic picture. That is the evident of how the tormenting spirit can influence the mind of people. Plead for the blood of Lord Jesus and it will flee away and be healed. See the lower picture on the left, it is painting of an owl. I remembered there was once during my youth, together with my cousin, I caught an owl at our front yard but my mom told us to let it go because she said owl will bring bad omen, there is something evil about it.(Those day when we stayed in zinc root “Bungalow” with rambutang and durian trees all around our house in Chye Kay Village, bull dozed to become Yishun New Town).

End Notes:

If there is anyone having stress and have suicidal thoughts. Come to Lord Jesus. You will receive salvation and be release from the bondage to these worldly stress.
Perhaps, yourself or the person could not make a decision or could not think of anything, the best option is to see a doctor, just like myself, I was dragged to the clinic by my wife. Thereafter having taken the medication and chemical imbalanced settle, your mind is more clear in thought, you should open yourself up and talk to people who are spirit filled (matured in faith). Having someone matured in spiritual life is very important, he and she can administer to you the right wisdom words that can help.
There is so much despair in this COSMO modern society !
Heard of this? “Man make, Man destroy
Man make machine and in return machine killed men. Terrorist attack, car accident, plane crashed, building collapsed due to earthquake, etc
Today, the person can love you deeply, next moment the person hates you.
Everything is so temporary, so short lived!
But you have one and only one way that is not temporary and never change even up to eternality. His love for you is unconditional, 24/7.
That’s right, Jesus is the only Way to life. His Salvation for Eternal life.
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.”

Success, being famous and rich is not everything!

My heart goes out to these young and successful actresses, actor and model, they succumbed to stress and committed suicide.
Actor Park Yong-ha, Actor/Singer Choi Jin Young, Actress Choi Jil Sil, Actress Jang Ja-yeon, Model Daul Kim, Designer Alexander McQueen

Actor/Singer Choi Jun Young was the most pitiful, his sister committed suicide in Oct 2008 and since her death, he has had to take on the heavy burden of raising her children together with his mother. He too succumbed to stress and had committed suicide in March 2010.

At the back of my mind I was screaming in desperation, “Why Lord, why Lord, there wasn’t any Cultural Mandate in South Korean to help these famous people to get rid of their stress by placing hope in you, Father Jesus. There wasn’t any Cultural Mandate seeded and growth.”

Praise the Lord! Cultural Mandate is now in place in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and seedling are growing in China, and South Korean soon!
Let’s us hold hand together and pray and fight “the evil voice that is beckoning people to commit suicide.” Away, away you evil spirit, I command you to get away from the hold onto these stressful people in Jesus’ name.

The Composite Churches

THE COMPOSITE CHURCH

What is the meaning of composite church?

In dictionary, the word composite means – made up of disparate or separate parts or elements; compound: a composite drawing; a composite philosophy.

The reason I am writing this article because of my suspicion that today’s churches are of composite churches operating in certain area that are against God as mentioned in the Book of Revelation chapter 2 and 3. Notice that Lord Jesus said “I know your works.” That means Lord Jesus is Omniscient; He is all knowing and all emcompassing, nothing can escape His wisdom and knowledge, no secret work can be hidden from Lord Jesus.
Letter to seven churches
Out of the seven churches, there is only Smyrna and Philadelphia that Lord Jesus did not rebuke. There is one church that is already dead but they would not admit and they continue to put up name as if they are still alive, that church is Sardis. We can be consoling ourselves that we are not one of them or even laughing at churches that has been rebuked by Lord Jesus, but the truth this, that church today’s are THE COMPOSITE church, which in certain area, or segment or in certain group had already been under the control by the evil Spirit of Jezebel; being seduced to worship Balak, practice the authorative mind control of Nicolaitans, left the first love, lukewarm or even dead. Do not be complacent henceforth, that you should have acknowledged being a COMPOSITE CHURCH, so that what the church needed to do now is to provide new training ground so that church member can be equiped with strong spiritual sensitivity and be able to discern whether known area have the operating Agenda of our Holy Spirit or of the devil.

The letters follow a general sevenfold pattern:

A greeting. To the angel of the church.

A reference to Christ’s self designation from Rev 1:12-19, this has some application to the letter to the church.

A commendation. I know your deeds… (except in case of Laodicea and Pergamum).

A rebuke if applicable (except in case of Smyrna and Philadelphia).

A charge to repent or a warning.

A call to hear. The phrase ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches’.

A promise. The phrase ‘To him who overcomes’ followed by a reference to a reward mentioned later in Revelation.

Chapter 2

To the angel of the church of Ephesus write.

2-5 “I know your works, and that your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they apostles and are not, and have found them liars and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become wary. Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place – unless you repent.

(Intepretation taken from http://www.apocalipsis.org)

v4 – Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. – Rebuke: they had deeds but not their love for each other and Jesus as at first. The word used for love is agape a stronger form of love rather than phileo which is brotherly love. Agape most characterises the love that Christ has for us which is a deeply committed love and which depends more on the nature of the giver than the attractiveness of the one loved (cf. eros the love between lovers). We are to love one another as Christ has loved us (John 13:34), agape love and not just brotherly love. It is likely that they had lost their initial love for Christ which resulted in a lack of love for each other. This is the great test for the saints, do they love one another (1 Cor 13:3, John 13:35). Their testing of everyone to see whether they are false apostles or false brethren had created an atmosphere of mutual distrust in which love could not grow (Mounce).

v5 – Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. –

Jesus now gives three steps to recovery:

i. Remember your former condition (stop and recall your love in the past, realise your current position and compare to how you used to be).

ii. Repent (change your direction, stop doing the negative)

iii. Do the things you did at first (do the positive, repentance is not just turning from wrong but also doing what is right).
To the angel of the church in Smyrna write.

9-10 “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich); and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer, indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.”
(Intepretation taken from http://www.apocalipsis.org)

v9 – I know your afflictions and your poverty–yet you are rich! – For the other churches (except Pergamum) Christ says ‘I know your deeds’ but here he says ‘I know your affliction and your poverty – yet you are rich’. They were physically poor but spiritually rich, contrast this with the Laodiceans who thought that they were rich but were poor, 3:17 (Jam 2:5). Physically the church in Smyrna suffered from persecution from the Jews and they were poor, they had few luxuries and possessions, yet spiritually they were rich in the sight of Christ. Jesus sees their affliction, he knows about it, this must be of comfort to this persecuted church.

v9 – I know the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. – Again he says ‘I know the slander…’ he sees their situation, he is aware of it and its injustice, once again this must bring comfort to this church. These Jews follow Satan in slandering God’s people, the word Satan means accuser (12:10), but the Devil means slanderer. Behind these Jews stands Satan; it is he, not Abraham, who is their spiritual father, John 8:44, (Wilcock). Slander, that is telling lies to blacken the character of people, is one of Satan’s weapons against the church, see the river of lies, Rev 12:15. Again in the letter to Philadelphia there is a reference to those who claim but to be Jews but are liars, they are actually a synagogue of Satan (3:9). See also other examples of Jewish antagonism in Acts 13:45, 14:2, 17:5, 18:6, 25:7. Paul defines a real Jew not as one physically circumcised but as one circumcised in the heart by the Spirit (Rom 2:29) and who believes God just as Abraham believed God (Gal 3:6-7).
To the angel of the church in Pergamos write.

13-16 “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you where Satan dwells. But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality. Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.”

(Intepretation taken from http://www.apocalipsis.org)

v14 – Nevertheless, I have a few things against you: You have people there who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin by eating food sacrificed to idols and by committing sexual immorality. – While the church coped with the external threat of persecution it did not deal with the threat from within the church. They had been infiltrated by Satan’s servants who introduce destructive heresies. The book of Revelation is largely about the external enemies of the church yet we must not forget the false prophets within the church. The word of God warns us about false prophets, Mat 7:15, 24:24, 2 Pet 2:1, 1 John 4:1. In the letters to the seven churches Jesus is purifying his church so that it will cope with the coming persecution. For Balaam the false prophet see Numbers 22-25:3, 31:16, 2 Pet 2:15. He enticed God’s people to commit sexual immorality and bow down and eat food offered to idols, Num 31:16. These sins all involve spiritual and physical compromise with the world, the church of God is to be blameless and holy (11:2, 14:4-5, 20:6, 21:2). Idols are mentioned because God wants to purify his church of anything that resembles idolatry (2 Cor 6:12-7:1 cf. Rev 18:4) which is the fundamental sin of those who worship the beast and his image (cf. 13:14-15, 14:7, 9-12).

v14 – eating food sacrificed to idols and by committing sexual immorality – These are the same things mentioned in the letter to Thyatira, there they tolerated the woman Jezebel, who called herself a prophetess, but who by her teaching misleads God’s servants into sexual immorality and eating food sacrificed to idols, Rev 2:20. Paul covers these topics in 1 Cor they are also mentioned in Acts 15:28, these are clearly matters that troubled the Christians of the time, see Acts 15:28-29, 1 Cor 6:18, 8:1. They involve compromise with the world, the church is to be holy and separate from the world, in the world but not of it. John was clearly concerned by idolatry (1 John 5:21).

v15 – Likewise you also have those who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans. – For the relationship between the Nicolations and Balaam see Rev 2:6 in the letter to the Ephesians. They permitted compromise with the world. This heresy is one that all God’s people are tempted with throughout church history, it is nothing new. Another OT figure, Jezebel, is used while describing the same sins in Rev 2:20 again she compromises with the world. The saints are to be pure for they are the bride of Christ, Rev 14:4. False teaching is one of Satan’s main weapons against the church, see his river of lies (12:15). If he cannot destroy the church from without he will try to destroy it from within, in 2 Cor 11:13-15 Paul talks about Satan’s servants masquerading as apostles of Christ.
To the angel of the church in Thyatira write.

19-24 “I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience, and as for your works, the last are more than the first. Nevertheless I have a few things against yhou, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrifice to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and thsoe who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works. Not to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no no other burden.”

(Intepretation taken from http://www.apocalipsis.org)

v20 – Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. – Despite their growing love and faith they tolerated evil in the form of Jezebel in their midst, she calls herself a prophetess but is in fact a false prophetess (Jezebel is transliterated from the Hebrew ‘Izevel meaning, ironically, chaste [Zodhiates]). Compare this church to the Ephesians who did not tolerate wicked men (Rev 2:2), Ephesus had truth and lost their love, but they had love but lost their love of the truth and permitted impure doctrine to be taught in the church resulting in impure acts. They had not guarded the truth entrusted to them, the church leaders had not guarded their flock as those in Ephesus had. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth (1 Cor 13:6). Doctrinal error leads to immorality but the truth leads to godliness (Tit 1:1). Sexual immorality and eating food sacrificed to idols are the same sins are mentioned at Pergamum. Jezebel brought idolatry into Ahab’s life, she urged him on in evil (1 King 21:25-26), especially idolatry and persecuted the prophets (2 King 9:7), note that as with Balaam in the letter to Pergamum in Rev 2:14 a famous OT figure is used to heighten the imagery. He also uses the word Jezebel because that is how God sees the prophetess. Jezebel killed the true prophets of God (1 King 18:4) and by her teaching here she is bringing spiritual death to those who follow her.

Since sexual immorality and eating sacrificed food to idols are mentioned in Acts 15:20 and in Corinthians 6:18, 8:1, we should take it literally. Eating food offered to idols would be a temptation with respect to the trade guilds which would have feasts involving food offered to idols and possibly sexual immorality. Once again spiritual compromise is warned against, James 4:4 warns that friendship with the world is hatred towards God, it is a form of spiritual adultery. In 18:4 the saints are warned to come out of Babylon so that they will not share in her sins or her punishment. The reason for his intolerance of evil is that he wants his bride to be pure cf. 14:4-5, Eph 5:27. See also comments on 2:14.

Chapter 3

To the angel of the church in Sardis write.

1-5 “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments, and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.”

(Intepretation taken from http://www.apocalipsis.org)

v2 – Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God. – Spiritually they were asleep, Christ saw them as dead and so he commands them to Wake up! A better translation is ‘show yourself watchful’ (Mounce). They were like the five virgins who took their lamps with them to meet the bridegroom but did not take any oil (which stands for the Holy Spirit), when the bridegroom arrived they were not ready, Mat 25:1-13. We must be ready for Christ’s return which is referred to in the next verse (see also Mat 24:42 ff.). Their deeds were not complete, i.e. perfect, in God’s sight, they failed to come up to God’s standard, the implication in verse 4 of the soiled clothes is that sin was involved, it could more simply be that of neglect.

v3 – Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent.- They were to remember the word of the gospel that gave them salvation obey it and repent (1 Cor 15:2). Clearly they had forgotten what the gospel meant, and had stopped growing and bearing fruit (Col 1:4-6). They needed once again to hear the gospel of their salvation and to respond to its message afresh. The historicist interpretation would point to Luther as an example of one who heard the gospel afresh and a new vibrant church was formed. The key to their state is to hear the word of God afresh. cf. 2 Pet 1:9. They also need to obey the word, they need to be doers of the word and not just hearers only (Jam 1:22). They also need to repent of their previous attitude, they must change their attitude, wake up and strengthen what remains.

v3 – But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you. – ‘I come like a thief’ is a reference to his unexpected second coming (cf. 16:15, 1 Thess 5:2-4, 2 Pet 3:10), he warns his church to keep watch, see the warning in Mat 24:42 to keep watch, ‘because you do not know on what day your Lord will come’. This is a reminder to them of the lack of vigilance of those in Sardis who were twice unexpectedly overcome by the enemy. It can also be taken to be a reference to his unexpected coming upon them in judgement (Mounce), but it is more likely the second coming he has in view (see the warnings in Mat 24:36-25:46). We should see this as a warning to the church to be awake at His return, this is in line with the message of Revelation which is to ensure that the church is ready for his return (1:3, 16:15, 18:4, 19:7, 22:7, 12-14).
To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write.

8-11 “I know your works. See. I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie – indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. Because you have kept My command to perservere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Before, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.”

(Intepretation taken from http://www.apocalipsis.org)

v8 – I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. – Commendation, there is no rebuke. Jesus is the one who walks among the churches and sees. Philadelphia, meanwhile, was on the main trade route between East and West, a situation that presented the believers with an open door for the gospel into the region beyond. Although they were a tiny group with little strength, theirs was a door that God had provided and therefore no-one could shut (Hill). They had kept his word and not denied Jesus, therefore he will acknowledge them before their enemies. Ramsay points out that the “open door” is a Pauline metaphor meaning a good opportunity, i.e. an open door, for missionary work, see Act 14:27, 1 Cor 16:9, 2 Cor 2:12, Col 4:3.

v9 – I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not, but are liars–I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you. – A synagogue of Satan is also referred to in the letter to Smyrna (2:9), the Jews follow Satan, whose name means slanderer, in slandering God’s people, clearly the Jews in particular were troubling these early churches as Acts demonstrates, Acts 13:45, 14:2, 17:5, 18:6, 25:7.

To the angel of the church in Laodiceans write.

15-20 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’ – and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked – I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 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 he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”

(Intepretation taken from http://www.apocalipsis.org)

v15 – I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! – He who walks among the churches sees their deeds. The water supply for the city of Laodicea came from hot springs some distance away so that it was lukewarm. There is more hope for the cold anti-Christian, such as Saul, than these lukewarm Christian who has lost his hunger for God.

v16 – So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth. – Literally he is about to vomit them out of his mouth. This shows his revulsion of these lukewarm Christians. The remedy is shown in verse 18 in which he counsels them to buy gold, white clothes and salve.

v17 – You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realise that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. – Their material wealth had blinded them to their true spiritual bankruptcy. The world had invaded this church, compare the similarity of her attitude with that of the harlot who said ”I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn’ (18:7). It is frequently noted that Laodicea prided itself on three things: financial wealth, an extensive textile industry, and a popular eye-salve which was exported around the world (Mounce). The church thought it was rich in her own eyes, but in the eyes of Christ it was poor. In Hosea 12:8 Ephraim boasts, ‘I am very rich; I have become wealthy. With all my wealth they will not find in me any iniquity or sin’. Compare the Laodiceans with the church in Smyrna who were afflicted and poor but in the Lord’s eyes were rich.

Their attitude was similar to that of the Pharisees who thought that they were healthy but were in fact sick (Mat 9:10-13), they thought that they could see but were blind (John 9:40-41, Mat 15:14). While they were not Pharisees their condition is similar which is why the Lord rebukes them. Their condition is dangerous because they do not realise it.

v18 – I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. – Christ’s counsel to them is in three parts: to buy gold so that they become rich instead of being wretched, pitiful and poor; white clothes to cover their nakedness and salve for their blind eyes so that they can see.

v18 – I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire – This is gospel buying without price (Isa 55:1, Rev 21:6), true riches without price, i.e. salvation that is free. In 22:6 God offers freely to the thirsty to drink from the spring of the water of life, in 22:17 the invitation to the thirsty is given by the church to take the free gift of the water of life. The Laodiceans were relying on their own riches without faith in Christ. The gold represents faith in Christ, see 1 Pet 1:7, rather than trusting in their own wealth which perishes. They can only get this gold from Christ. They cannot take their wealth with them after death, but their labour of faith follows them (14:13).

v18 – white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; – Originally Adam and Eve were naked but felt no shame (Gen 2:25), but then after they sinned they were ashamed of their nakedness and sewed fig leaves to cover their nakedness (Gen 3:7). In 16:15 at the second coming Christ calls blessed is ‘he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him, so that he may not go naked and be shamefully exposed.’ In 3:4-5 those in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes will walk with Christ dressed in white because they are worthy. Those in Laodicea did not even have any clothes, they were naked, they have to come to Christ to get clothes to cover their sins. Joshua the high priest was dressed in filthy clothes in Zec 3:3-4, he was given new rich garments after his sin was taken away. These clothes are the white clothes of righteousness (Isa 61:10). Throughout Revelation white garments stand for righteousness (6:11, 7:9, 7:14, 19:8, 19:14), in 7:14 they are said to have ‘washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.’

v18 – and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see. – They do not even realise their nakedness and need their spiritual eyes opened so that they can see their condition. Laodicea was famous for its eye salve. Once again they must buy this from Christ.

Summary, please stop and do some self examination:-

For the church, try to understand as I explain in parable. You may see the church as a fruit tree but there are certain branches that are producing bad fruits, the church has to find out which root (root cause or which part fallen from first love) had been rotten and must identify the worms that is attacking it to cause it to rot. The church needs to spent time and effort to uncover many ground to discover it.

For individual, especial those running as Cell Group leader.

Do you practice mind control?

Do you find yourself using manipulation and hype to control people under your charge?

Are you feeling that your leadership is being threaten and you must do something such punishment to exert authority over your members?

Are you quick to get angry over member breaking your “internalised rules” and you do not hesistate to meed out punishment on to them?

If your answer to the above question is “yes” You are in danger of being control by the evil spirit of Jezebel. You need to repent and to the extent of deliverance.

Do you have lusts for authority, adultery, material gain such as money?

If “Yes”,You need to ask for the blood of Lord Jesus to cleanse you of these lusts.

Do you find yourself bearing the spiritual fruit?

1.Love

2.Joy

3.Peace

4.Patient Endurance

5.Kindness

6.Goodness

7.Faith and Faithfulness

8.Gentleness

9.Self-Discipline

(Galatians 5:22-23)

If you find that you don’t possess ALL of the above spiritual fruit, then your spirit life is in big question, are you reborn?

Lastly, do you receive Visions, dreams or revelations personaly from our Holy Spirit (Lord Jesus) or from Angels? If your answer is “No”. Then, perhaps you do not have our Holy Spirit in full control of your life. You need to pray for deep rooting with our Holy Spirit.

Addon notes(3/10/20100: (Special thanks to San Davis for sharing this video on FB)
Grace based church giving discount on true teaching of Lord Jesus leading many to the broadway of entering Hell. Be open to view this video, it is not talking about wrong teaching of Apostle Paul but the low or discounted value teaching of Lord Jesus Christ. Grace based church rarely preach about using the power of Holy Spirt, Angels, Spiritual warfare and rarely warn about the existence of Hell.

Asia Conference and CGI 2010

Part 1 – Asia Conference and CGI 2010

Asia Conferend and CGI 2010

The Asia Conference 2010 and Church Growth International Conference kick off on 26/5/2010 with man of God, Rev Dr David Yonggi Cho and the finale on 30/5/2010 with a closing sermon by man of God, Rev Dr A.R. Bernard.

Note to reader, when you see any message in double brackets, ((xxxxxxxxxxxxxx)) it is the rhema words or revelation I received from our Lord.

Day 1-26/5/2010 am Session

Opening sermon by Rev Dr David Yonggi Cho, his speech was very soft. We can feel that he was weak, my youngest sister Laura couldn’t hear what he was speaking. Fortunately, I could hear, having to stretch my neck long to catch most of his spoken words. This man of God, is speaking about fourth dimension living in the third dimension world. Documented speech as follows:-

Genesis 1:2 Earth was without forms, empty. Fourth dimension, operation of Spirit of the Lord.
There is a secret to change, create, recreate and repair in the fourth dimension. God been doing for the Israelites many things in the third dimension. But God told me that I could do much more with Holy Spirit in the fourth dimension.
Nothing can overcome me, the Holy Spirit is with me. Vision and dreams are very important.
God said to me to come out of my tent (symbolic meaning of self in 3rd dimension) and look to the sky (4th dimension). Abraham has been living in fourth dimension, counting the stars.
While I had planted 1 million conferences worldwide.
Lazurus’s fourth dimension was good but his third dimension was bad. 60 year ago Korean was very poor. I must preach the Gospel of Jesus, about the fourth dimension to get out of poverty.
I received revelations by reading Bible. Your speech in third dimension, you can hear but God’s word penetrate the fourth dimension. I said to God, if there is no healing, we are together we will fall together but God healed.
When you speak in faith, your word is in the fourth dimension.
God come to me in the fourth dimension, my thoughts, my heart and faith, dreams and Vision. We must have total positive thinking.

He also cautioned the audience not to pray casually or half-heartedly, but on the inside, pray from a place of conviction and deep faith. “Say, I am blessed with an Abrahamic blessing.” Don’t pray casually for your blessings.

People do not know how to apply biblical promises to their practical lives because they are living in the Third Dimensional world. We need to move into the Fourth Dimensional realm, to think, dream and speak according to the Scriptures in order for God’s blessings to flow upon us and through us.
((Put your salt seasoned words into package and mentioning Jesus’ name will propel the package into the fourth dimension.))
In a Village in certain part of South Korea (apology I can’t hear clearly), those who dreamed twin will have twin, so it is the dream that move the DNA change, and that caused the village to have many people bearing twins. I went there and pray for them, tell them to have picture of pretty baby in their heart. So the people did have picture in their heart of pretty baby not dream, and that helps them to have pretty baby.
I cannot make money by myself but “with prayer and dream, it can be done. You to engage in prayer visualizing in the fourth dimension and with strong faith, it will materialized in the third dimension world. That was how we can built a 750,000 member Church, now 820,000 and still growing.

He ended with a powerful word of encouragement for the audience, saying “Being Christians, life without miracles is no life at all. When you live by the Fourth Dimension, you can do the work of 100 men, and you will witness miracles.”

Day 1-26/5/2010 afternoon Session

Phil Pringle

Pringle talked about the sword of the Spirit how the church grows in a climate of war, and how the saints must be prepared to brandish their sword which is the Word of God and prayer and push back the forces of darkness.
2Chronicles 7:14 “if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
Most people were seeking God’s hand instead of his face. Hands for healing the sick and touching people. People just don’t realize that it is important to seek the face of Lord Jesus. When you seek the face of God, you communicate with him. You don’t just speak to God face to face just like that, you need to pray. Prayer will connect you to God to seek his face. Even your angels are seeking the face of God daily. You must be humble before God, have good prayer life.

Mattew 18:10 “Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones., for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.”

James 5:13 “Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms.”
James 5:16-18 “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Elijah was a man with nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.”
Effective prayer must have passion. We pray for the anointing of Elijah on every Church today. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord.

27/5/10 – Morning session

A.R. Bernard

Getting Back Into A Position Of Influence

Delegates left on Thursday morning all challenged even as they were charged with the responsibility of restoring the church as a transformative force in society. With the True Worshippers leading praise and worship, Dr. Steve Munsey giving a dramatic offering message, and Dr. A.R. Bernard preaching an edifying word that left the air tingling, it was impossible to be left untouched.

Bernard’s spellbinding message was on restoration and transformation of the church to its former position as a transformative engine of society, Bernard urged members to have focus both individually, as well as corporately as the body of Christ.

The Cultural Mandate, he explained, was a call for the church to transform person and place. In the ministry of Jesus, you can see this transformation of person and place. Jesus spoke to the woman at the well and transformed her. She then went back and told all the people in the town, and they came to hear Him speak. Hence the Cultural Mandate is to cause a person to be ignited and filled with the desire to transform their communities.

Bernard explained how Jesus’ ministry was meant to transform society, restoring it to the original intent and purpose of God. Even the Cosmos had left the original purpose. John Chapter 1 tells the sequential unfolding of the creation. Bernard explained how Jesus’ ministry was meant to transform society, restoring it to the original intent and purpose of God. There was an original order, but this intention was undermined by certain forces. In his ministry of reconciliation, Jesus went back to this original order, this original perspective. I like to call it cosmology, or worldview.

The Church, as the body of Christ, is meant to continue this ministry of reconciliation. However, Bernard said, the church has since lost its focus. He related a conversation he had with South African archbishop Desmond Tutu, in which Tutu said to him, During apartheid, the church knew what it was against, but now that that’s over, the church doesn’t know what it’s for. If you don’t know your purpose, someone can then give you a purpose that’s not your purpose, and you end up wasting time and resources on distractions. And you work on his purpose instead of God’s. Bernard cautioned. He attributed this lack of purpose to the church as a whole losing its focus on its restorative mission.

Purposes guide your activities. Why am I here? guides What am I doing here? Don’t confuse movement with progress. We can move and move, but get nowhere it’s called going in circles. Be clear about what your purpose is because it determines who or what you’re going to get involved with.

Jesus is the word, in restoring order of the original purpose of God. You need to know your purpose for God in this world.

Stay focus on your purpose for God. Focus is very important. In order to focus, we have to look at the following:
1. Clearly articulated worldview (cosmology), Biblical worldview.
2. Core values. (With Biblical values.)
3. Core purposes.
This is true for a person, a business, a ministry or a church. When you have core value, you are protected from corruption. Core value for economy are for selfish purpose.
Purpose is what you suppose to do or intend to do. Don’t confuse moment with progress.

When you involve with someone, you are involved in their moment and progress. Selfish purpose reaps corruption.
In the world today, the financial system is enslaving you to be a borrower to the lender. Jesus wants you to be lender.
It is all about the theory of Man and theory of place.

Jesus considered the cosmos a system. Society is a system, politics is a system, and the world is a system that has enslaved humankind. When the Bible says that we are of the world, it means that we’re enslaved by the system and its values and purposes. The gates of hell are all about protecting the system. The Bible says, the truth shall make you free. Free from what? Free from the system.

The condemnation of man is that there is a light, but man would rather choose the darkness. Without the light, it is possible for the darkness to cloak itself, but now that Jesus has brought the truth and the light, we can see the system for what it truly is. The audience showed their agreement with a chorus of “Yes” and “Amen” at each juncture.

Bernard called for the church to be restored as a force for societal change. He quoted historian Edward Gibbon, who identified five reasons for early Christianity’s influence on the Roman Empire:-

1. The Romans were impressed by the uncompromising zeal of the Christian conviction, Christianity, for them, was not a preference. They strongly and deeply believed in Christ, in his life, in his death, and in the power of his resurrection.

At that time, the church was primarily made up of Jews. The Jews were isolationists because they believed that Gentiles were unclean. However, the Christian church had the same zeal, but there was an absence of a narrow, unsocial spirit. They were willing to get involved in the community of Rome, and that impressed the Romans. In those days Gentiles were called dog.

Matthew 15:25-28 “Then she came and worshipped Him, saying, “Lord, help me!” But He answered and said, It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.  And she said, “Yes Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.” The Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.”  And her daughter was healed from that very hour.”

2. The Church had a doctrine of present and future, with the improvement of the human condition. The church was willing to bring change, and address the issues and needs of the human condition.
3. The miraculous powers experienced in the church deeply impressed the Romans. It showed that they were not just people who talked philosophy they had power. There were miracles, and healing from injuries, illnesses or demon-possession. It showed that this is a God who’s present, who is powerful and authoritative!
4. The pure and austere moral and spiritual disciplines practiced by the Christians showed the Romans that they were serious about their faith. They fasted, they engaged in disciplines of prayer, of giving, of Scripture. They had a set of moral and spiritual disciplines that impressed the Roman Empire.
5. The church had a uniting presence in the Empire. They had the power to bring people together under the banner of faith such that they became an independent force in the heart of the Empire.

Despite successes in the early years, the church lost many of these characteristics over its two-thousand-year history. Isolation from society and from the present issues of the day caused the church to become irrelevant; a move toward intellectualism and rationalism discouraged Christians from believing in miracles, robbing the church of its power; the church became intoxicated by power and lost its values and purposes, and eventually, became more a divisive force than a unifying one.

But, the time has come for the church to be restored such that it can transform, and in turn, restore the world to God’s original purpose. Referencing the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles in 1906, Bernard said that the Holy Spirit started with the miraculous to bring back all the other characteristics that made the early church successful.

Added notes: Christianity also answered cultural and spiritual needs – especially but not exclusively among the poor – left untended by mainstream Roman religion and culture. Roman values had stressed political goals and ethics suitable for life in this world. They did not join peoples of the empire in more spiritual loyalties, and they did not offer many emotionally satisfying rituals. Adherents of the new religion clashed with Roman authorities, to be sure. Paul’s conversion to Christianity proved vital. Paul was Jewish, but he had been born in a Greek city and was familiar with Greco-Roman culture. He helped explain basic Christian beliefs in terms other adherents of this culture could grasp, and he preached in Greece and Italy as well as the Middle East. Paul essentially created Christian theology, as a set of intellectual principles that followed from, but generalized, the message of Jesus. Paul also modified certain initial Christian impulses. Jesus himself had drawn a large number of women followers, but Paul emphasized women’s subordination to men and the dangers of sexuality. It was Paul’s stress on Christianity as a universal religion, requiring abandonment of other religious beliefs, and his related use of Greek – the dominant language of the day throughout the eastern Mediterranean – that particularly transformed the new faith.
Christ in culture is to engage, not to compromise.
Now Christians waived the power of Holy Spirit and that’s why there is no miracles. Christians today are getting intoxicated by doctrine. In conclusion we have to bring those values that had impact many people in the Roman Empire era back.

Yes! Everyone shouted in jubilation “Bring them back! Bring them back!
Rev Dr A.R. Bernard had helped me fully understand the message in Matthew 15:25-28 The Gentiles were called dogs by the Jews, that was the reason why the woman associate herself as dog.

((God works on miracles, God don’t work on the logic and doctrines of man.))

Dr Lee Young-Hoon

On Day Two of CGI-AC 2010, Dr. Lee Young-Hoon, senior pastor of Yoido Full Gospel Church in Seoul, South Korea, told the humble history of YFGC: how it started with five people 52 years ago and grew to become the world’s largest church. Lee?s session was hotly anticipated as he shared what leaders and believers around the world all want to know: the secrets to YFGC’s success.

Lee cautioned that the purpose of church growth should be greater evangelism, not growth for growth’s sake. Church growth is the work of God, said Lee, and not the work of man. Christians first have to humble themselves and give glory to God, for He has blessed us with the gift of imagination.

The first secret of YFGC’s success is its powerful message. Founded shortly after the Korean War, the church ministered to a country reeling from the ravages of war. Its simple message of hope in Jesus Christ sparked the fire of revival. It was the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, says Lee, that helped to birth so many successful ministries over the years.

Centered around the five-fold gospel (salvation, true fullness of the Holy Spirit, divine healing, blessing and the second coming of Jesus Christ), YFGC went from strength to strength under the leadership of Dr. David Yonggi Cho.

Cho taught his church the principles of Fourth Dimensional Living in a Three Dimensional world. Lee re-emphasized the four steps to walking in the Fourth Dimension: thinking, visions anddreams, faith and the proclamation of God’s Word.

YFGC’s second secret is that it does the work of the Holy Spirit.

Lee shared how his previous church was stuck at a plateau: it had 300 members, but the fervency of its members was waning. He began to cry out to God, and finally received a revelation that he had to lead his people out of a “slavery attitude”, an attitude of constant complaint. He was reminded of Moses leading the Israelite nation out of Egypt. Just as Moses had prayed for God to provide the needs of the people, so Lee needed to trust in the provision of God. He realized that the growth of the church was too much for his own strength, and that it had to be committed to God in prayer. Isaiah 43:18-19 “Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.”

Lee exhorted the church, We need the wind of the Holy Spirit! Let the wind blow! When the Holy Spirit moves in the church, its members grow individually; when that happens, the church grows as a whole.

The last secret of YFGC’s success is its strong prayer culture.

The amount of prayer needed, Lee explained, is dependent on how much work needs to be done. He cited Jesus as an example. To fuel His powerful ministry, Jesus first had to pray and fast for 40 days in the desert.

I could only pray for less than five minutes! Lee admitted of his early Christian life. However, after being baptized in the Holy Spirit, he found that he was increasingly able to pray, sometimes surprising himself by praying for more than an hour.

His church began to see exponential growth as his devotion to prayer grew. He got the church to hold regular prayer meetings at 5 a.m. weekly, and also held one before its service on Friday night.

As the church prays, he explained, the members begin to see that prayer moves God’s hands, and miracles happen.

Gospel is produce by the death and resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation of Jesus :-

Redemption from Sins. Mentally, we are sick inside and physically we are hungry. Lord Jesus took over all our sins at the cross, so that the Gospel of righteousness, of divine healing brought us eternal life. We have only one Gospel, Gospel of Jesus Christ.

2Cort 4:9-10 “But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?”

God said to Dr Yonggi Cho “My grace is sufficient for you.” Rev Dr Yonggi Cho suffered from tuberculosis but he pray to Lord Jesus “By His stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5 Nothing can overcome the power of the word of God.

2Corinthians 4:8-10 “We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken, struck down, but not destroyed, always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may manifested in our body.”

Lee explains, God waits until we pray before He can begin to do the good work. We have to pray to receive new strength to overcome the difficulties in our lives. It is also important to have a pure heart, a heart of repentance from our sin, for God to answer our prayers.

YGFC’s strong focus on prayer has led them to establish prayer meetings that are broadcast on satellite all around the world. The church is so committed to prayer that the only time they would stop praying is during meal times, joked Lee.

Lee ended the session by praying over the congregation, asking that God show them how to pray, that they might produce the workings of the Holy Spirit in their lives and in their countries. He prayed that they would do miracles in Asia and the world.

26/6/2010 – Afternoon, Elective workshop. Creative preaching

Steve Munsey dramatised his preaching based on a servant of God name Job. He acted up the episode of Job Chapter 1 and 2. Today’s message is about how will realised whatever that Satan had stolen, you can demand back from it seven times. I had decided that today’s Title is “Protector of the Altar.”

He said Job was a very rich man our modern time, there is a symbolic meaning to his possessions.

Seven thousand sheep is an equivalent to huge clothing mega store selling all the branded clothing.

Three hundred thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred female donkeys represents seeds time and his harvest. He leading a contented and happy life. The:-

6 One day the angels came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came with them. 7 The LORD said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it.” 8 Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” 9 “Does Job fear God for nothing?” Satan replied. 10 “Have you not put a hedge around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land. 11 But stretch out your hand and strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.” 12 The LORD said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.”
Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.”

13 One day when Job’s sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house, 14 a messenger came to Job and said, “The oxen were plowing and the donkeys were grazing nearby, 15 and the Sabeans attacked and carried them off. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!” 16 While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, “The fire of God fell from the sky and burned up the sheep and the servants, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!” 17 While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, “The Chaldeans formed three raiding parties and swept down on your camels and carried them off. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!” 18 While he was still speaking, yet another messenger came and said, “Your sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house, 19 when suddenly a mighty wind swept in from the desert and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on them and they are dead, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!”

His wife asked him to curse God and die but he didn’t.

At this point, Steve Munsey, in his creativity preaching dramatized strongly this part to the closing of Job’s story.

Job lost everything, he has nothing to offer. He resume his duty as Protector of the Altar. He tore and ripped off his robe and place them on the alter table, shaved his hair and placed his log of hair onto the altar and worshiped God.

“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised. In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.”

In the end, God rewarded Job doubled of what he had lost

27/5/10 – Afternoon session

Tan Sri (Dr.) Prince Guneratnam
Guneratnam began his 30-minute session with a quote from Romans 3:3. He said that when God makes a promise to us, it is His responsibility to bring the promise to pass. His emphasis on the point that “God is faithful, and every man is a liar was liberally scattered throughout session, each time drawing out loud choruses of “Yes” and “Amen” from the capacity crowds at Halls 8 and 10 in Singapore Expo.

The difference between Jews and us Gentiles, said Prince, is just that they were called to be caretakers of God’s work; God is no respecter of man.  He explained that Christians have power over every circumstance and obstacle in their life, not just because they are faithful in going to church, but because they believe in what He says. That is important to know because many visions and dreams are going to draw derision and ridicule from other people, even those close to us. We need something to help us get past these negative comments and that is our strong belief in what God speaks to us through those visions and dreams.

Roman 3:4 “That you may be justified in your words. And may overcome when you are judged. “
If God gave you vision or prophecy, it doesn’t matter if people believe you or not, because if it is truly from God, it will surely come to pass. So does it matter if people believe you or not?
When God give you Vision, it is God’s duty to make it to past. Very often the Devil will stand in the way to block, but with good faith and power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ name, the devil can’t do anything.

Every vision has two elements: breaking and making, and it is vital that we are not hindered by the breaking. God spoke to Jeremiah if he can break him like pottery.

The LORD told Jeremiah, “Go and buy a clay jar from a potter. Take with you some of the leaders of the people and some of the leaders of the priests. Go out to the part of the Hinnom Valley which is near the entrance of the Potsherd Gate. Announce there what I tell you. (Jeremiah 19:1-2)

The LORD continued, “Now break the jar in front of those who have come here with you. Tell them the LORD who rules over all says, I will do just as Jeremiah has done. I will smash this nation and this city as though it were a potter’s vessel which is broken beyond repair. The dead will be buried here in Topheth until there is no more room to bury them.” (Jeremiah 19:10-11 NET)

One thing is true, God work through minority not the majority. God is not biased to any races. How do you handle the source that you receive? He shared three ways to keep our focus on God and fulfill the vision He has for us:-

Firstly, ensure the source of the vision is from God. Many times, dreams are borne out of jealousy we want to emulate someone with a successful career or a powerful ministry. Not only are we wasting time, we are also not fulfilling the vision God has for us.

Next, if God is indeed the source, depend on Him and make Him your resource. If God put a vision in you, He will fulfill it through you. The key to unlocking His resources is to use the resources you already have. God will pour out on us what we are not afraid to pour out on others. God’s giving is based on our surrendering. Guneratnam shared about the boy in Mark 6 who willingly gave up his five loaves and two fishes, enabling Jesus to produce a miracle that fed more than 5,000 people.

The third point is that we should not let our dreams intimidate us. The dreams that God gives are always bigger than our current ability. When his church was seeking to build a larger worship location in downtown Kuala Lumpur, Guneratnam was faced with a stream of obstacles. He realized that sometimes Christians have to make a decision to either believe that visions and dreams can come to pass or stumble in their faith. One can choose to believe in a limitless God or to believe in the limit of one’s ability.

Guneratnam’s message stirred up the faith in the hearts of every believer in the room.

((Message by Guneratnam came upon me like anointing of new oil, gift of Faith. I was quite disappointed that far away country can associate, read and give honour to what I wrote but not my own country people. It doesn’t matter if own country people believe or not. Thank you Father Jesus.))

John Avanzini

Rev John Avanzini spoke about the important of offerings and giving tithes to the House of God. Wonderful Bible verses he shared :-
2 Corinthians 8:3 “For I bear withness that according to their ability, yes, and beyond their ability, they were freely willing. ”
2 Corinthians 9:3 Yet I have sent the brethren, lest our boasting of you should be in vain in this respect, that as I said, you may be ready.

27/5/2010 – Evening session

Phil Pringle

Anointing prayer for Asia. Many fell under the power of our Lord, the Holy Spirit. But Asia Conference 2008 seems to be more anointed then Asia Conference 2010.

Now, all warmed up, the congregation greeted Pringle with loud applause as he stepped on stage. The preacher, known for his inspiring sermons and artistic flair, introduced wife Christine and daughter Rebekah to the conference attendees. The banter shared by the Pringles had the audience in stitches, especially when Rebekah called her parents Pastor Phil and Pastor Chris, much to their astonishment.

Pringle proceeded to move in a completely different direction than his first session, in which he taught on the power of prayer as he painted on stage.

As the C3 Band segued into an anointed worship song, “Holy”, Pringle walked the stage and waited on the Spirit. He dedicated the session to praying for the different nations. He started to call up pastors from different nations. All across the auditorium, people began to run up to the stage, and Pringle laid hands on them and prayed over them for strength and growth in their churches.

Pringle called up all Chinese pastors to come on the stage first, followed by pastors from India, pastors from Pakistan and Vietnam and Cambodia.

The pastor, who moves in a powerful prophetic anointing, prayed over some of them, singling out particularly pastors to pray and prophesy over. One Indian pastor was asked the size of his congregation, and he replied, “60.” Pringle prayed over him and challenged him to believe for 6,000. Some delegates from Pakistan were seen doing the bear hugging Phil Pringle like their spiritual father. It was quite candid to see some Indians and Pakistan delegates still staying on stage even though Phil Pringle had dismiss them so that other country delegate can come up.

In ending the session, Pringle invited the American preachers present to go up on stage, while he directed the rest of the congregation to pray for the churches in the USA to catch the passion and power of God once again. It was a sight to see such great and anointed men of God as Dr. Casey Treat, senior minister of Christian Faith Center and Dr. John Avanzini of Avanzini Ministries crying out to God for a fresh anointing and fire of God for America.

The evening kept the attendees in eager expectation for what amazing things God would do over the next few days of the conference.

28/5/2010 – Morning session

On Friday morning the third day of the conference and a public holiday in Singapore a long queue had formed outside Singapore Expo Hall 8 by 7 a.m. There were many people eager to hear Dr. David Yonggi Cho speak in his second session at the CGI-Asia Conference 2010.

The session kicked off with an inspiring time of praise and worship, led by the City Harvest Church worship team who created a Spirit-filled atmosphere in preparation of the message that was to come. Attendees watched a video of CityCare’s disaster relief efforts in Haiti following the January 12 earthquake this year. Directors of CityCare, Koh Chye Soon and Victor Lim Fei, appeared on stage to tell the congregation about the organization and its work in Carrefour, Port-au-Prince, the nerve center of the devastation.

CHC senior pastor, Dr. Kong Hee also invited on stage Terry Nelson of Light Ministries, Orlando, a missionary who has been in Haiti for 28 years, during which he has set up a ministry and even adopted three Haitian children. CityCare worked closely with Nelson to bring medical help, medicine and aid items into Haiti, helping some 20,000 Haitians.

Nelson told of how, after the earthquake, more than 2,000 Haitians were added to the church in three months. He described how the people had witnessed the goodness of the Lord through CityCare’s aid and how they noticed that the Christians homes were the ones left standing in a sea of rubble. Haiti being a country steeped in voodoo, Nelson also described how demonized people would manifest in buses, and the bus drivers would open the windows as they drove past the church in order for the Christians to pray for them. He concluded, This move of God transformed them from religion to relationship.

Kong then invited Dr. Casey Treat to lead the congregation in prayer for Haiti and Nelson.

The congregation rose to its feet as Kong affectionately introduced the next guest as being one of three women in his life who could rebuke him. The first two are his mother and his wife, the final one is Dr. Kim Sung-Hae, Cho’s wife.

Kim, a trained concert pianist, looked regal in her cream suit as she prepared to play. Kim introduced the Franz Liszt piece by citing John 4:13-14, before she launched into a light and lyrical performance that segued into “Amazing Grace”, drawing applause from the audience, who sang along softly.

To introduce Cho, Dr. Paul Kim, executive director of CGI, took to the stage to introduce the Korean pastors and disciples of Cho, calling them his spiritual children. He introduced the board members from CGI who were present, among them Phil Pringle, Prince Guneratnam, Richard Bernal and Ken Eldred. Kim also announced that Alex Abraham from Indonesia had been invited to join them as the newest board member.

A video on the far-reaching works of Yoido Full Gospel Church was screened; the congregation was privy to such sights as the Choi Ja-Shil Prayer Mountain, Elim Welfare Town, and Hansei University.

The high-spirited Kim then got the congregation to lift up their right hand, and shout “Hallelujah” to greet Cho as he came to the pulpit. Cho began simply, sharing how he had always struggled to preach the gospel of hope, as he saw many who were sick. He would pray for words of encouragement in order to bring hope, strength, courage and power to others, and has been doing so for the last 50 years.

The message focused on the five-fold gospel of Christ simple, yet carrying a power-packed punch as it was delivered by a man who had lived it out.

The five-fold gospel consists of the gospel of: salvation, the fullness of the Holy Spirit, divine healing, blessing, and of the second coming of Jesus Christ. Drawing the crowd’s attention to 2 Corinthians 4:10, Cho exhorted them to always remember Jesus’ death and resurrection, and to carry the memory of His death alive in their hearts. By so doing, they will also remember that His death brought them righteousness, which will be manifested through their body as well.

Likening himself to the Apostle Paul, Cho shared that there was a period of time in his life, when although he looked strong on the outside, he was so weak on the inside that he could not even bear to let his wife know his pain. Looking at all the healings and miracles that God did through his hand, he asked the Father not to forget about him and his own pain. God replied, My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. This caused laughter in the audience, and also understanding nods.

As Cho introduced the second gospel of divine healing, he told the congregation how he was once scheduled to speak, but he was so sick he was not able to stand or move his body. However, as he confessed continually, By His stripes, I am healed, Cho gradually got well enough to preach. As the power of God touched him, he forgot he was weak and ministered to the people powerfully.

The third gospel of blessing: Cho taught that believers are a source of blessing, just like Abraham. He encouraged those present to proclaim, not beg for the blessings of God. He said, After 50 years of ministry, I have realized, when I had the most money, I did the most work.

Cho then taught the final gospel of blessing, that a believer’s life is controlled by his or her self-vision. Again, Cho stressed the importance of carrying the memory of Jesus’ redemptive work on the Cross. He declared that God is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: the God of millionaires and billionaires. He encouraged the congregation never to feel inferior as they are more than conquerors, saying, “You will struggle, but you should move on.”

Impressed by the people attending and serving at the conference, Cho declared, When I look at you, you will have far better than I had. Unexpectedly, the legendary pastor spoke directly to Kong, Kong Hee, I encourage you. You belong to the younger generation. God loves you. Be very bold.

Cho then drew the message to a close by sharing his motto with the crowd, citing 3 John 2, Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

He also gave thanks to America, for it was from that nation that the gospel flowed to Asia initially. He said that Asia has now grown up and is starting to reach out with the gospel and a helping hand a word that drew loud cheers from the congregation as the session ended.

28/5/2010 – Evening session

Reinhard Bonnke

Bonnke, who hails from Eastern Germany, related how God had shown His hand through his ancestry. In 1922, his grandfather suffered from an illness that gave him such excruciating pains that he could not be touched. However, one day, an elderly American missionary arrived at the German village where they lived. He entered Bonnke’s parents house and prayed for his grandfather and the man was ompletely healed.

On another occasion, Bonnke was in need of $50 when he felt the Holy Spirit ask him if he wanted one million dollars. Bonnke then replied that he was not asking God for one million dollars, but for one million souls that was the biggest purpose of his life and ministry. In response, the Holy Spirit told Bonnke that he would plunder hell and populate heaven for Calvary’s sake. Shortly after, Bonnke saw the vision of a map of the entire Africa washed in the blood of Jesus.

At the beginning of his ministry, God showed Bonnke a stadium, and told him he would preach there. At his first evangelistic meeting at the stadium, only 100 people turned up. Disheartened, Bonnke began to preach to the 100 when suddenly, in the midst of his sermon, a member of the audience jumped up and began to shout that he had been healed. Several others did the same. Bonnke was amazed, because he had not even been preaching about healing. Right there and then, he realized that Jesus longs to do great things in the present, no matter what the circumstances may be.

Thereafter, the stadium was packed every day. A woman who had been healed of her blindness spread the word of her miracle. God began to show Bonnke that nothing would limit Him, He had no maximum. 75,000 people attended his crusade in Cape Town and another 200,000 in Kenya. During one crusade in Nigeria, the pastors on the platform wept when about half a million people showed up, as most of them pre-believers. Over 90 percent of the crowd received Christ as their savior that day.Yet another meeting in Nigeria reached a staggering 1.6 million attendees.

Bonnke explained that God does not sit with sitters, but He goes with goers. After all, he reasoned, if God is for us, who can be against us? He believes in his heart that heaven is going to be bigger than hell.

Bonnke said Heaven is Full, Hell is empty. That is my heart’s desire to plunder Hell and making Heaven full. What is going to happen is that Satan will be sitting alone in Hell because Hell is make for him. Bonnke said that he understand that it is not Biblically correct because in Matthew 7:13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.”

The way to Heaven is narrow but the way to Hell is wide and broad. Mathematically, it is not correct because since the wayto Heaven is narrow while to Hell is wide, resident in Heaven can’t be more then Hell. Jesus said that is the highway to hell, but He had already plunged His cross in the middle of that highway as a roadblock, so many people are making the U-turn back to Heaven again because of this huge ROADBLOCK!

Bonnke professes that preachers and evangelists stand at the foot of that cross to preach repentance repentance brings about a change of life and direction. Those who believe and change direction do not arrive in hell but in heaven.

The key, Bonnke emphasized, is the Holy Spirit, as there is no substitute for the Holy Spirit; He is crucial to ministry. When Bonnke was a young preacher, he believed that Matthew 28:19-20 was the greatest promise in the Bible, as it said, Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

The Holy Spirit gave him a revelation not just a promise, but a proven fact that He is unconditionally and always with his believers. This influenced Bonnke’s thinking and ministry. Bonnke admitted that there will be times when believers cannot feel the presence of the Holy Spirit, but it is in such times that they must exercise faith and trust that He will show up as they do His work, for it is then that the Holy Spirit starts to move.

Like Elijah’s mantle, Bonnke said that the Holy Spirit will be given to each and every one of His believers. Bonnke highlighted that when the 120 came down from the upper room on the day of the Pentecost, each of them had the flame of the Holy Spirit on them. Each flame was different because it was original. However, even the tiniest flame represents the full fire of God and is capable of battling hell. He declared that everyone at CGI-AC2010 would return to their countries with the fire of the Holy Spirit. Bonnke concluded the session by praying for the congregation, and promised that in his next session, the ring of fire will flow through the hall.

29/5/2010 – Evening Session.

Reinhard Bonnke

The Supreme Commission To Preach The Gospel

Healing evangelist Reinhard Bonnke hails from Germany and is known for his Great Gospel Crusades throughout Africa. His crusades have seen as many as 1.6 million people in a single gathering. In the last decade, Bonnke’s ministry has recorded some 52 million decisions for Jesus Christ.

Reinhard Bonnke opening was he sensed the focus of the Heart of God in Asia.

The point is you must pray and obey the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit is a healing spirit, a miracle. Our ministries covers area like dream commission, the great commission preaching in South Africa. Go preach Gospel. There are certain Church preaching Gospel like a flight simulator at altitude but their feet are grounded to the ground, connection to God. Those are just big screen. The world is Real, we have to preach real things to the real world.

Power of the spoken word

In book of Genesis 1:2-3 The Holy Spirit was hovering and he can do nothing until the words of God speaks. Then there was creations. The Holy Spirit is hovering over India, China, waiting for someone to preach the word of God. Since Pentecost time God has been waiting for man. The Holy Spirit has already been ready all the time.

I remembered in my hometown in Germany, East Germany, my home was at the seaside. We use to have budges but when it is low tide, the budge are stuck in the mud, there is no way to move them. But when it is high tide, the budge were dislodged from the mud and the current started to move things around.. With the water current came in, I can move the budge easily by pushing with just one hand. The Holy Spirit is the water current that gives you strength to move things around.

News is only news when it is spoken. And an unspoken gospel is no gospel at all! declared renowned evangelist Reinhard Bonnke.

At his second session on the fourth day of the CGI-AC 2010, the 70-year old German did not mince his words as he urged every delegate to be bold in going into the world to preach the gospel as commissioned and emphasized by Jesus in Mark 16:15.

If you want to catch a fish, don’t throw your net in the bath tub, said Bonnke, “You will not catch any fish, maybe only a bar of soap. Throw your net into the ocean.”

He went on to declare that since the day of Pentecost, God has been waiting for believers to act in faith and obedience. But believers have mostly assumed that they need to wait for Him and His timing before getting involved in the Great Commission.

To further illustrate this point, he shared how the gospel is like medicine that needed to be taken in order for it to be of any help. If a bottled medicine lay beside the bed of a dying man and was not used, it would be useless as it helped nobody. Similarly, the gospel needs to be preached in order to release the power of the Holy Spirit and to bring salvation.

Another blessed delegate, 30-year old school counselor and CHC member, Sharmaine Tan shared how her faith was stirred up by Bonnke’s evangelistic fervor. His passion and stories of faith in the Holy Spirit greatly inspire me to do likewise. If God can use Bonnke, God can use me too, said Tan

This was just one of the many witty statements that Bonnke made as he challenged delegates to go into the world and preach the gospel.

A defining moment In Africa

Bonnke recounted how he began his ministry in Africa at age 27 and joked how he had arrived from Germany to a land that was not waiting for him; indicating the scores of obstacles that greeted him in Africa.

One of the early incidents that led to the start of his ministry as an inexperienced missionary was when he had engaged an established African pastor, whom he called a big man, for a miracle service to pray for the poor and sick. On the day of that service, the big man ended the meeting after preaching 10 minutes without praying for the people who came to be ministered. He was bewildered but abided as the big man promised to pray for those people the next day.

When the following day came and Bonnke went to fetch the big man, he was shocked when the big man told him that he was going home instead. Bonnke objected but the big man was adamant and left.

Going back into his car, Bonnke cried out to God and prayed, God, I’m not a big-time pastor. I’m just a small-fry missionary. But I know I’m Your servant; so I’ll preach and pray, while You perform the miracles.

This was to be a defining moment for Bonnke and his ministry as he stepped out in faith to anchor the miracle service that day. And remarkably four persons who were totally blind, recovered their sight fully at the end of that service after he prayed for them!

Besides learning first-hand that the power was in the Word and that the Word of God in his mouth was just as equally powerful as when it is in His mouth, Bonnke also learned that the Holy Spirit was a healing Spirit who performs miracles.

((Thank God for Reinhard Bonnke. I have been writing ariticles, posting in FB to caution people of incorrect doctrine that there is no Hell. Bonnke’s sermon came on me as Gift of Faith, reinforcing and confirming that the works I had done ebing supervised by our Holy Spirit. Iwas woke up by our Lord Jesus by his bright blinding light at 3am to print out the Biblical truth and handed out to my CG during meeting. Bonnke also confirmed for me the biblical truth that I have been talking about, that hell is not empty and Lord Jesus is plundering hell because He has the keys. So Heaven is filling up with residents bigger than you would expect. Thank you Father Jesus for your love

Dripping with Liquid fire

Bonnke relate to us how Lord Jesus was being baptised by John the Baptist.

Matthew 3:11 “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me will come one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not fit to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.”

One thing all of us must know, the Holy Spirit is attracted by the weakest and those who feel unworthy.

1Corinthians 1:27 “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise., and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.”

We learned that John baptised Jesus in the river, but tonight you are going to be baptised in the river of Fire.

Hundreds or even thousands responded to the altar call. Praise the Lord. Towards the end, Bonnke delved into the subject of the baptism in the Holy Spirit and its significance upon the lives of Christ-followers. He used this analogy: the dipping of fabric in colored dye, demonstrating how the baptism in the Holy Spirit affects the life of a believer.

He explained that when dye gets into the cloth, the fabric takes on the nature of the dye and is transformed. The dyed fabric now feels like the dye, looks like the dye and smells like the dye. Similarly, Jesus dips the believer in “fire” when he or she is baptized in the Holy Spirit; soaked in the fire of God.

Bonnke exclaimed, Wherever you go, you will drip fire. Every devil will recognize the footsteps and anointing of Jesus upon your life and flee. Be baptized! Your life and ministry will change!

Bonnke gave an altar call for delegates who were between 15 to 25 years old, to run to the altar to get baptized, to which hundreds of youth responded and ran toward the stage area.

With CGI-AC 2010 being represented by 70 countries and more than 2,000 churches, the session impacted thousands of young people to rise up and reach out to their societies for God.

30/6/2010 – Morning session.

12 members of City Harvest Church was promoted to Pastor. They have the priviledge a of being prayed by Rev Dr Yonggi Cho.

The morning of May 30, the last day of CGI-Asia Conference 2010, was one that would change the lives of 12 City Harvest Church leaders. After years of ministry and discipleship, they were ordained as assistant pastors, stepping up to higher levels of leadership and responsibilities in various ministries. Dr. David Yonggi Cho laid his hands on the 12, and presented them with their certificates.

Following, Taiwanese singer-composer Chen Wei Quan and The Millennial Orchestra and Choir gave pitch-perfect performances to an audience that included the Grand Imam of Badshahi Mosque in Pakistan and Ambassador Oh Joon, the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea in Singapore.

Anchoring his message on John 6 in the Bible, Cho pointed out the difference between the disciples Philip and Andrew.

Philip focused on what they did not have, acting in the natural as he counted that it would take almost a whole year’s wages to buy enough food for each person. On the other hand, Andrew operated in the Fourth Dimension, believing that Jesus would have some use for what they did have five small loaves and two fish.

Through that small offering, Jesus was able to perform one of His biggest miracles. Not only was every stomach filled, but there were 12 baskets full of leftover. God always works with what we have, not what we don’t have, stated Cho.

As such, we need to shift our gear from Third Dimensional thinking (operating in the natural) to Fourth Dimension thinking (operating in the spiritual), he said. Christ lives in the supernatural through our faith, our words of proclamation, our thinking as well as our visions and dreams.

Cho shared that many times, as he was going through the most difficult times of his life, he wondered if Jesus was with him. Looking back, I can see that He has really been with me every step of the way. Jesus is always where we need Him.

Christ was always meeting the dire needs of the people, he added. He spoke from his own life-changing experience. Born in 1936 in South Korea, Cho’s childhood was steeped in eastern beliefs. At 17, he contracted tuberculosis and was lying on his deathbed when his sister’s Christian friend shared the gospel of Jesus Christ with him.

Desperate to live, he cried out to an unknown God, If you heal me, I will be a minister; l will go to the ends of the world for you! He felt warmth go through his heart, and from that time, he got better and better. In less than a year, he rose from his deathbed and his life changed completely. Christ is the source of life. I knew that once I had Jesus, I would be healed.

By reading the Bible, we renew our minds. Don’t act based on what you see, hear, taste or desire. Only act according to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Cho spoke at length of the necessary partnership with the Holy Spirit for all fruitful believers. Every faith-filled believer does not walk alone. We are not orphans, we have a heavenly helper in the Holy Spirit, he said. Describing his partnership with Him, he elaborated, Every morning before I begin my day, I welcome and praise the Holy Spirit. I say to Him, “Let’go!” With the Holy Spirit, I can preach the gospel. I can bring the kingdom of heaven into the hearts of men. With the Holy Spirit, you will be a successful Christian and lead a victorious life.

Going further, he added, “With the Holy Spirit, you can have visions and dreams. The Bible says that without vision, the people perish. How do you know if you have a vision and a dream? Well, do you have a fervent desire in your heart for the future? If yes, that is your vision!” Quoting from Romans 4:17, he reminded the congregation that God calls into being things that were not.

He gave an example of praying for a woman who was stricken with throat cancer. As she kept saying, “Pastor, I’m dying, he kept on praying for her but nothing happened. Just before he gave up, the Holy Spirit spoke to him, prompting him to ask her to go to a prayer grotto on Prayer Mountain in South Korea, and write down the Bible verse as found in 1Peter 2:24 By His stripes I am healed 10,000 times.”

After she left, he put the incident away in his mind but after 10 days, the woman returned and said to him in a clear voice, I have finished writing! By repeatedly visualizing and writing down the promise of God for healing, the woman was healed of her sickness. He reiterated the essence of his first session on Day One, Christianity without miracles is not Christianity at all.

Even if you are not healed on the spot, you should say what God says and you should believe what God believes; what God sees, you should see also.

We must always speak creative words as God works through your proclamations. Nothing positive will ever happen if you speak negatively. God does not look for PhDs, He looks for humble people. When you walk with Jesus, you can do all things.

Cho ended by telling the congregation, The whole world is in a state of disorder. We need God’s intervention. I pray that all of you will be the ones leading God’s work throughout the world. The session closed with a discernible sense of God’s universal love for the whole of humanity, as senior pastor of CHC, Kong Hee, led in a prayer for the various nations in Asia.

Kong Hee: How To Be A Culturally-Savvy Christian

Delegates at CGI-AC 2010 who were anticipating an explosive evening plenary session on the first day were not disappointed as founder and senior pastor of City Harvest Church, Dr. Kong Hee delivered a pulsating message to rouse the faith of Christians and churches alike: to recapture leadership in influential areas of society by engaging culture effectively.

As the CHC music team led the hall in song, the evening opened with an exuberant Parade of Ministries preceded by a video encapsulating the history of City Harvest. Members and ministries from CHC and its affiliate churches making an impact in the marketplace from celebrities to top business people walked the stage as a precursor to Kong’s message that followed. Then, a live showcase of the many congregations in the church, the Hokkien, Chinese and Indonesian church, JAMs church, Children’s Church and more followed. Trishaws circled the floor, followed by floats and a bevy of girls wearing balloon outfits.

All of it culminated in a brilliant lightshow and the full praise and worship session that brought down an electrifying presence of God. Dr. John Avanzini took the offering with a powerful message about visualizing as one sows, preparing the hearts of the congregation for the night’s main word from Kong.
Before Kong began, he shared what he believed was the battle cry of the Holy Spirit; to raise up a generation of Christians in Asia who would be both savvy in culture and fervent in the faith.

Engaging Culture Effectively

For too long, churches have adopted wrong mindsets that have led us in disengaging our culture, said Kong. No doubt popular culture has risen but church culture has decreased.

Citing the story of John Wimber (1934 -1997) who was a famous producer in the music industry in the early 1960s before he became a pastor as an example, Kong revealed how The Beatles had at one time approached Wimber to become their producer. However, due to the advice of the church that Wimber was attending as a young believer, he turned down the offer.

According to Kong, that church was against the association of the secular or popular culture. And he believed that things might have panned out differently if Wimber had accepted that offer, noting the high possibility that the members of The Beatles might have converted to Christianity given Wimber’s evangelistic fervor. It might have been that Christianity lost a potentially powerful and influential force in The Beatles.

Kong presented three types of thinking that account for the failure of churches to engage culture effectively. They are:
Cocooning – withdrawal and isolation
Combating – fight, resist and oppose
Conforming – compromise.

Being Culturally Savvy

Kong illustrated how it was possible for the Church to engage culture effectively without compromising the faith through the biblical example of Daniel, who was a highly favored servant of the king of Babylon during Babylonian reign over Israel.

The preacher explained that Daniel was successful and experienced upward mobility because of his maturity in learning the Babylonian culture, language and fashion. He even adopted a Babylonian name and took on a job in Babylon. In his time, Daniel was contemporary yet consecrated. He was serious about culture yet serious about his faith.

When it came to learning the culture, arts, fashion and language of Babylon, Daniel accepted these outward practices. However, when it came to accepting the Babylonian’s diet of food, he rejected it as he understood that it was equivalent to submitting to their pagan idols. Daniel knew where to draw the line and did not compromise his faith, explained Kong.

He cited two-time Oscar winner, Denzel Washington, a Christian and a modern-day Daniel, who has made no secret of the line he draws, he may play a villain in a movie but either redemption or justice must be communicated by the end of the film.

In order for Christians to be savvy, Kong listed three things they can do:
Counter culture. Be aliens: in the world, but not of it. Look and perform like everyone else but within and in ways that count, be consecrated to the Lord.

Communicate in culture. Be ambassadors. Show genuine care and interest for people and their culture.
Create culture. Be artists. Be passionate about excellence and creativity in one’s art.

In Kong’s opinion, Washington epitomized what a culturally-savvy Christian ought to be in the entertainment industry an artist who is deeply Christian.

Building On Spiritual Disciplines

Kong turned his attention to the contemporary group of Christians.

He said, “The only way to become a successful Christian in the marketplace is to build your life on spiritual disciplines. Reading the Bible, prayer, fasting, praise and worship and thanksgiving, solitude, confession, repentance, forgiveness and going to church these are the spiritual undergirding support of one’s upward mobility.”

According to Kong, the gap between one’s upward mobility and lack of spiritual disciplines is called character deficit. The wider the gap, the greater the pressure exerted on one’s character which will lead to burnout or to moral failure. In other words, failure in character is a failure in maintaining one’s spiritual disciplines.

If we’re not careful in maintaining our spiritual disciplines, we will start to compromise on our faith, said Kong. Instead of us influencing the world, we in turn become vulnerable and get influenced by the world.

In closing, Kong encouraged conservative Christians to engage the world and contemporary Christians to learn spiritual disciplines. He also explained that the intent of his message was not to undermine either conservative or contemporary Christians, but to marry both of their strengths to produce a successful ministry in bringing the gospel to the world.

Let’s live in balance, exhorted Kong, being culturally savvy Christians who love God and His word.

30/5/2010 – Evening

The New Self

A.R. Bernard

“Your self-esteem is how you feel about yourself, but your self-concept is the person you think you should and could be.”

The evening of May 30 spelled the end to five days of Church Growth International and Asia Conference 2010. Yet, it also marked the start of new things that God was about to do through His people.

Neon laser lights cut through an atmosphere thick with excitement and anticipation, as the CHC band led the praise and worship session, followed by the offering message preached yet again by the guru of biblical economics, Dr. John Avanzini. He fleshed out four main points on what Christians need to do to prepare for Jesus’ return, which includs feeding the hungry.

Taiwanese artistes, led by singer Liu Geng Hong and model Vivi Wang, performed a number entitled “Everyday.”  The celebrity couple from New Life Church have brought 100 of their close friends in the media circle to Christ since their own salvation several years ago. Their appearance suitably paved the way for the last speaker of the conference, Dr. A.R. Bernard, known for his teachings on Kristos Kai Kosmos or Christ in Culture.

After having spoken on Day Two, of the need for the church to realign its worldview, its core purposes and values in order to restore its influence in the society, Bernard came a full circle in addressing the need for change in the individual, saying, “If you want to change the world, start with yourself.”

Jesus is our comforter in blood and flesh but when he left he gave us a comforter who is like air. How do you know your have vision and dream? You must have great desire in your heart. You have desire in your heart close it with reality. Faith is believing in what God had said. It is like I have sixth sense, I see as God sees. We are all in WILDERNESS, trouble in the west. You must always speak CREATIVE AND POSSITIVE WORDS. Philips was negative, Andrew was positive as he talked about what you have, not what you don’t have. God is not looking for PDA but a humble heart. Don’t say you are nothing, you can’t go to university, etc. But with Jesus, you’re everything.

Matthew 23:17 “You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred? You also say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but if anyone swears by the gift on it, he is bound by his oath.’ You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred?”

Exodus 30:29 “You shall consecrate them, that they may be most holy. Whatever touches them will become holy.”

Philp 4:12 “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.”

Shedding light on the parable of the prodigal son in Luke 15, Bernard departed from the themes of forgiveness usually associated with the passage and zeroed in on verse 17, where the prodigal son “came to himself” and sought to return home to his father.

Bernard went on to suggest that the cultural mandate seeks not only to restore culture but also to restore man to his original self-concept and deliver him from inadequacy. Pointing to Luke 15:17, he likened the verse “When he came to himself” to the changing of self from the old man to the new manone who looks at his resources, talents and time to pursue who he could and should be, and starts to dream dreams.

Bernard drove the message home by declaring, Reconciliation with God ensures that you go to heaven, but reconciliation to your true self determines what you will achieve while you are on earth. God gave us promises not only of the life to come, but of the life that now is.

When the prodigal son came to himself, the first thing he did was to speak to his world. Just as God’s creative power is in His words, so was the creative power in him, which came out in the words he spoke to himself. He moved from images of poverty to images of abundance even though he did not physically move.

Your circumstance doesn’t dictate what happens to you, what happens in your mind does. He talked himself out of his situation. He began to speak from a different perspective and relate to abundance. Even if he didn’t have it then, he believed it was available to him, exhorted the founder and senior pastor of Christian Cultural Center in New York City.

Bernard also pointed out that the prodigal son was not concerned with whether his father would accept or reject him, as he was determined to return home. When you have a positive mindset, you are not afraid of rejection or failure. Even if you do meet failure, you see it as another opportunity to look for another door, he said.

Your self-esteem is how you feel about yourself, but your self-concept is the person you think you should and could be. When Adam was first created by God, he felt good about himself. After he sinned, his self-concept changed; he began to experience feelings he’d never felt before, such as guilt, condemnation and inferiority. His feelings began to dominate him, prompting him to hide when God came looking for him.

People suffer because of the distance between their self-esteem and their self-concept the greater the distance, the lower their productivity and motivation in life. When God comes into a believer’s life, He takes him back to his real self, that is, according to the image of God. As the believer focuses on the Word, he starts to see things differently and perceive himself in a new way. Your perspective on life changes when your self-concept changes.

He proceeded to quote Colossians 3:10, and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Bernard explained that just as God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, God was also in Christ, reconciling man with his true self-concept, which is the image of God. Only when you come to your true self-concept can you be empowered to be the model citizen of the world, to have dominion over all, to multiply and subdue as stated in the Bible at the beginning of man.

According to Bernard, the new self has a new resilience, a new determination that endures hardship, and does not accept “no” for an answer. When you come to yourself, you think and talk differently. When others are saying it cannot be done, you are saying it can be done, Bernard affirmed.

He spoke of an example of self-determination from the Bible, where a Gentile woman with a demon-possessed daughter pleaded with Jesus to heal her child. When Jesus responded by calling her a dog, she did not let that register in her feelings but answered unwaveringly with the now famous line, Yes, but even dogs eat the crumbs that fall from the master’s table.

Bernard put forth that Jesus was affirming her tenacity, her pursuit of changing her daughter’s circumstance. There was a determination that motivated her even in the face of potential rejection.

Stating that self-determination is an attribute of God, Bernard challenged the congregation, “If a Gentile woman can have such determination in her, what more those in whom God dwells? No wonder the Bible says that we are more than conquerors and over-comers in this life!”

Bernard spoke of the widely-published series of Chicken Soup For The Soul books. Despite being rejected by publishers 33 times, the team of writers behind the books persevered and today, the series is a best-seller around the world. Every time we exercise self-determination, we are drawing from the self-concept that God originally intended for us. And when we do that, we can start to dream, imagine and see possibilities for change. And that is how we will change the world.

Elective workshop – Effective counseling.
Walk With Them, Not For Them

Frederick Toke teaches that counsellors should facilitate solutions, rather than focus on problems.

Which of these four shapes would you choose? A square, a triangle, a circle or the letter “Z”?  After waiting for an answer, Frederick Toke, a psychologist by training,explained, Those who chose the square are intelligent people, while those who chose the triangle are analytical. Those who choose the letter “Z” are creative. As for those who choose the circle, you have a problem, a big problem. You are obsessive! You will need to take a walk down the street to visit my clinic. If you are not careful, being impatient will make you an “in-patient”. The audience roared with laughter.

With that test, Toke, a man passionate about helping and training others, started the laughter-filled Effective Counseling elective workshop at the CGI-Asia Conference 2010. Not one 5-minute block went past that wasn’t met with laughter from the audience.

Toke explained that it is the duty of the counselor to comfort the client, and “com” means to come along side, while “fort” means to “give strength to the person.” He stressed that just as Psalmist David wrote in Psalm 23 that even though I walk through the valley of death, I will fear no evil for You are WITH me, it was the duty of the counselor to give strength to the client, to help the client understand the situation, and not to remove the mountains on the client’s behalf.

Using the statistics from W.H.O., Toke explained that with the increase in workload and computer usage, the need to multi-task, coupled with the growing coffee culture, one in six people suffer from insomnia. Furthermore, one person attempts suicide in every three seconds with one succeeding every 40 seconds.

With increased emotional trauma, Toke mentioned that it is important for counselors to learn to facilitate solutions and not focus on their problems. He stressed that the moment counselors suggest solutions, they are taking on the responsibility of the clients and not empowering them to take up their responsibilities themselves.

He then encouraged the counselors to focus on the storyteller instead of the stories, and help the client function in the midst of crisis. He explained that all problems are universal, but what make the problems unique are the people going through them. As such, it is important to help the person and empower him to overcome the problem rather than remove the crisis. He also told the audience that as counselors, it is their duty to tell the client the truth as the truth will set us free, to remove the toxic emotions that cause dysfunction.

Next, Toke explained the three phases a person will go through. Phase 1 is the discovery phase, when a self-centered child rubs up against the world. In Phase 2, the preparation phase occurs when the child goes through crisis. After overcoming each crisis, promotion then comes and there will be a transformation from “I” to “We.” The child will then realize that he must learn to function collectively. If the child overcomes the crisis well, he gains wisdom and confidence. There will be maturity in his relationships and a development in his leadership skills. When he moves on to Phase 3, he will start to give back to the society. However, if the child does not learn well during the crisis, it will lead to bitterness and his confidence will be crushed, following which, he will give up.

It was very interesting and his tips are very practical, said Jennifer Chan, a 45-year old Malaysian customer service officer from New Life Church, Taiwan. I now know how to counsel my children, as well as how to relate to my husband and the people around me.

Elective workshop – Discipleship by Robb Thompson.

Robb Thomson started by saying there are two kind of people; One is the process person – Individual who loves process. The other is the result person – Interested in result

Robb Thomson started by saying there are two kind of people:
1. Process person – Individual who loves process. This person only interested in the process, how the things must working accordingly, he don’t care much about results. If the company requires sales result. This person may not be able to deliver but since he is very interested in process, he ensures quality in his process.
Result person – Interested in result. This person is result driven, most like a manager or leader wanting to look at good result only, at time tends to overlook quality. There is no right or wrong between the two person. You need to have both.

Founder and senior pastor of Family Harvest Church, Dr. Robb Thompson is an expert in the area of organization, relationship and leadership. Widely regarded as one of the world’s leading teachers on personal excellence and character development, he has trained and coached business executives and mentored government leaders, heads of state, cabinet members, and royalties in over 40 countries around the world. No stranger to City Harvest Church, Thompson began his elective session on CGI-Asia Conference Day One as the crowd listened intently to his every word.

Thompson began by explaining that leadership is essentially discipleship. To lead, one has to first learn how to follow. He elucidated that this concept has been clearly echoed through Scripture everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher; the Corinthians were told to imitate the apostle Paul as he imitated Christ.

The goal of leadership is not just to see a change in our lives but most importantly, to have an inward transformation. He further elaborated that the problem was not bringing people into the House of God, but rather ensuring that they receive a special touch to change their lives. There may have been meetings with a million people in attendance, but in such meetings it is very difficult to ascertain whether all will have experienced an authentic inward change.

Thompson then began to share seven traits that true spiritual leaders should have. Firstly, they need to embody courage. Courage, as he defined, is the willingness to stand for what is right in the face of wrong it is not the same as bravery.

Secondly, leaders need to have a committed life-team around them, as a person’s life is determined by those whom he calls friends; to those whom he grants access to.

Self control is another essential trait. He highlighted how characters in the Bible such as Adam and Samson flirted with the temptation of the forbidden, and as a result, disappointed God.

Leaders also need integrity the inner strength to choose the rejection of men rather than to disappoint God. People often fail in life because of a fault in character, and a lack of integrity often underlies that problem.

Thompson stated that diligence is a quality that all leaders should strive to have, and that it is the mother of promotion. Quoting from Proverbs, Thompson clearly showed that the scriptures highlight the necessity of hard work for greater success and excellence in life.

The sixth attribute is possessing a successful attitude. This is the different spirit which Joshua and Caleb had that enabled them to enter the Promised Land. It is not the negative circumstances that will determine a person’s future but rather how he responds that will decide his destiny.

Finally, a leader must be a good finisher to endure to the end regardless of the trials and tribulations that he faces. Dr. Thompson followed by sharing three laws of leadership: Never delay a decision which has to be made eventually; be specific when one has to get something done and to make one’s expectations clear of his followers. He further elaborated on four qualifications to be a leader and ended the message with an altar call for those who had fallen short of certain standards to ask God to make them better leaders.

Thompson ended the session with a short time of Q&A. Financial consultant Mary Tan, 43, asked Thompson how he handles betrayal personally. He answered that no one likes betrayal, that even Jesus was hurt by Judas’ act of disloyalty, but that time is the factor which will cause all evil to eventually reveal itself.

National serviceman Jireh Chew, 20, felt that the session was very “enlightening” and was inspired to be the person that God has called him to be.

CHC member Louis Ling, 51, was deeply impacted by Dr. Thompson’s teaching and was encouraged by a greater understanding of leadership principles.

Does a woman or a man completely undressed is guilty?

Seduction sins or Lustful thoughts?
This is my first attempt to write an article of balanced view. After procrastinating for a while whether I should write this contemporary article or not, I had finally come to term with my thoughts and decided to pen it down. In this article, I hope woman will not be offended, as I will be writing more about woman as our subject rather than man because as you can see in the world today (as in the Babylon era of Roman Empire) politicians, businessman, famous celebrities had all fallen because of involvement in SEX.

Does a woman or a man completely undressed is guilty of sin?
My simplest answer to this question is, it depends on what he or she was undressed for. You take shower or see a doctor, you need to undress isn’t it? That is pure logic.
Think for the moment!
The role of doctor.
Male doctors has been examining and operating on countless naked women during their course of duty. Can we said that because of their profession, it is justifiable for them to look at nude women and operate on them? Are doctors immune from having lustful thoughts with naked women standing in front of them? That is a tough question isn’t it? I don’t know what is the answer because I do not have the opportunity to interview any male doctor before. What if a woman that the doctor happen to fancy or was his “old fame” came for the appointment that requires undressing? I think it would be wiser for the doctor to get another doctor to help or always have the nurse present with him at all the time. Maybe reader who are in this profession can write some comment here. Or the Fruits of Self Control can help in situation like this.

The role of photographer and artist.
Male artists and photographers had been drawing and taking pictures of countless naked women during their photography events. Can we said that it is their profession to see naked women as their subject for their arts? Are they also immune from having lustful thoughts with naked women standing in front of them? That is another tough question isn’t it?
Surely photographer and the artist have set of rules that were prescribed for their working with naked model. I was in one of the Photographic Society before, and we were arranged to take picture of a Chinese model in nude. One of the rule is that we must keep a distance from the model and never touch them, if we require them to reposition or even to push aside her hair covering the face, photographers have to ask the model to do the move themselves. In fact, there was one stage where, nude photography was a growing trend in Singapore, I think late 1990, couples getting married would take nude photos of themselves in the studio as part of their wedding package. That was crazy and insane, I am glad that this trend is no longer here.

Think for the moment.
If Adam and Eve had not sinned by eating the forbidden fruits. All of us would had been naked, right? By the way, as revealed in the Bible, we do not have the physical eyes, only pair of spiritual eyes to see the righteous holiness of God. Nakedness will never be known to us without physical pair of eyes, thus no lusts, no sins.
Genesis 2:25 “And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”

Then, both Adam and Eve sinned. Genesis 2:6-10 “So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.”

So from that day onwards till today , we must be covered. In the book of Leviticus, it talked the whole lot about what one should not uncovered for.

The role of performing artist.
Sometimes you see the celebrities wearing fashion that exposes part of their breasts. I was wondering what was the thought of these ladies as they put on the dress that were very revealing. I think we can think of two mindsets; maybe there are those who were used to this kind of fashion, as probably they had gone topless in the beach or even in nude for shows. Of course, involving their body in nudity is a big question of moral. Then, when these people put on revealing dresses, probably it is just fashion. They may said to themselves looking into the mirror. “Okay this dress looks good on me.” That moment is just a pure thought. However, we do have woman who may think otherwise “Wow, let’s create lustful thought in some men. That would be fun. Hmmm, I should make my cut lower, swing my dress more open to reveal more of my breasts. Okay that should do it. Gotta catch some men tonight.”
Think for the moment.
Which action of the woman will incubate more lustful thoughts in men?
A professional strip dancer slowly removing her clothing piece by piece on stage or a model came straight on stage completely nude? The answer is obvious.

Culture or Immorality.
The tribeswoman or tribesman, they don’t wear cloth (certain part of the world). As a matter of fact, all these woman are topless. Suppose we can teleport all these “nudist” to city area such as Orchard Road or busy City area, and it happened right infront of you, what would you be thinking and say? Maybe screamed “Oh my goodness, these people are shameless!” Or “Oh my goodness, that is pornography.” But these tribesman or tribeswoman would have looked at you and say, “What species are you? Wastage of material, wearing too much!”

Festival or indulgence in immorality.
What Is the Kanamara (Iron Penis) Festival?
The Kanamara Festival dates back over three hundred years when prostitutes came to the shrine to ask for protection from syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases.
Where does this Festival originate from? Harlots and prostitutes, participation in this event is getting oneself involve in these spirits, so better stay away.

Here are the four split in the thoughts for you may want to ponder upon :-
1. Festival or indulgence in immorality?
2. Is it Appreciating fashion or Activating lustful thoughts?
3. Admiring art or indulge in lusts?
4.Culture or immorality?

Take a look at the flash below, at end of this chapter.

Three key points to note:-

1. Sex is natural, no one taught the animal how to mate with one another and produce. That was the purpose of God when he make living things in book of Genesis, to be fruitful and produce. Genesis 1:34 “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.” Unfortunately, due to the fallen world, people has been trapped by the evil purpose of SEX.
2. If Adam had not sinned by eating the forbidden fruits, then all of us would not have physical eyes, only pair of spiritual eyes, then nudity is not an issue, there is no lusts. Genesis 3:11 “And he said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”
3. We need to constantly renew our mind, get rid of lustful or seductive thoughts. In another words, nail “the old man” (lady, take note, you too have the old man in you) to the cross as a sacrifice through Lord Jesus dying on the cross. This would be a sweet sacrifice that emits aroma that is pleasing to God. Romans 6:6 “Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.”

Remember, it doesn’t matter whether you’re the subject person or viewer or audience, what matter most is; do you have a pure clean mind?

Matt 5:27-28
“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery. But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”

You can sustitute, the word “his heart” with “his mind”. So what are the thought within you when you were involved?

The place of Sanctuary (worship Lord Jesus Christ)

Matt 15:11 “Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.”

Don’t get fooled !! Imagine what can be done in the world, a flat chest man showing how to fake push-up boobs! Some tips for lady on how to wear. Have open mind to view this video. My wife walked passed and commented that I have fancy for man. She was joking but I think I better explain how I got this video. Sincere thanks to Hai Ling, she put this up in her wall and at that I was contempating to write this article, so I thought this video can be included to compliment whatever I wrote. So no lustful surfing for me, just happen to come across this video by chance 😛

Will Lord Jesus give good people second chance?

Matt 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me,’Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.”

A) The email I wrote to all my family members on 6th Nov 2009.

Dear all

Some 6 to 8 months ago, I emailed to all, saying that we should visit each
other more often rather then confining to our own routine, own world and
visit only once in CNY(Chinese New Year celebration). I wrote about Eldest Auntie (father’s eldest
sister) who would make the effort to visit everyone in Singapore at least
twice a year. Johore Bahru is not near and yet her love really bring
relatives closer together across the causeway. But since she was gone.
This link has been broken. Wonder how we would go from here? Visit each
other more often to care for one another. Today our dearest 3rd Sister is
gone. Could we have done better …….. caring…. loving………..

I brought Good news to father that “Mom and Ah Bong” are in heaven, and
father is in peace, he did not cry when talk about her. Jean is still
translating into Mandarin. Unfortunate she is down with certain ailment
and somehow there is a delay. I wanted to produce this story in booklet
and gave to all of you. Unfortunately, I could not bring this good news to
3rd Sister. (See end note *5) For those who can read English. Here is the link (click or copy to browser):

My Mom and Ah Bong in Heaven.

Should I say, it depends on God’s will. Who has the Wisdom to know God’s
will?

This afternoon (at 2.45pm 6th Nov 2009), I received a shocking call from my father. He said that my 3rd Sister had jumped down from the building. Committed suicide. I was very grieved to hear this news. Last week, I tried to visit her but did not know her address.
My heart was heavy as I took the train from Dover MRT station. I sobbed quietly but unashamedly. I could have visited her family last week but I did not know the address. Maybe, if I had spoken to her about Lord Jesus and about the hope that my Mom and Sister Ah Bong is in heaven. Things might be different? At the house, my father told us that 3rd Sister called him at about 10am in the morning, she said “Life is difficult, full of sufferings, one sickness came and was cured, then another sickness come.”
There after my father did not hear from her and the hand phone was switched off. About 12 something, she jumped down from another building and was gone.

I said in my heart:
“Oh Father Jesus, would you give my 3rd Sister a second chance? Was this
not mentioned, even if one soul is saved, Angels are celebrating in
Heavens. I don’t know, it is up to His will, to question God almighty of
his decision is making myself the greatest fool.” So I would want to pray,
call for GLOBAL PRAYER according to His Will (if it is his will):-
“Lord Jesus, our father in heaven. Was it not mention in Bible,
even if one soul is saved, Angels in heaven will celebrate?
Who can understand God’s will?
What bravery of a man has; to dare to question God of his Wisdom?
Were not things make to happened for his Glory?
Lord Jesus, if it is your will to have more than one soul saved,
We would like to pray this Global prayer:-
Bones that was shattered is being joined in Jesus’ Name.
Bones are being straightened again in Jesus’ Name.
Flesh and Blood are put back together in Jesus’ Name.
In Jesus’ Name, the dead has been resurrected to serve Him better.
Hallelujah, Glory to His Almighty Name!

“In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” Luke 15:10 (Thanks to Pastor Aries for helping me find this verse on 21/11/2009, Svc2)

Am I not a fool for writing all these?
I rather be a fool than to become a greater fool by not doing anything!

B) The testimony

I had mixed feeling of grieve and anguish. I just couldn’t accept the fact that my lovely 3rd Sister was gone.
As I see my 2 young nephews, going through the funeral rites, it really hurt me. I kept saying to myself:-
“How selfish, she just jumped down to solve her pain of suffering, why couldn’t she think for the young sons. They are still young 23 and 21, still need motherly care. Maybe if she would had focus her thought of seeing the sons growing up and getting married, rather than self sufferings, this hope should give her the will power to press on, and carry on with life. But, I guess she couldn’t bear the pain anymore, energy depleted. There was one stage in her life, she taken up 2 jobs just to make end meet.”

I once spoke to her about her well being and how she was doing; her reply was “No choice lah, just keep on working.”

Then, there was this gathering of my family members at the funeral wake, all summarised in union “It is just impossible! There was so much going on for her. She did mention of the good news that her elder son will be in University. And that her husband has been very caring lately, bringing her to clinics, hospital. Sort of expression of contentment. Why would she want to end her life just like that? Sickness can be cured! What did the mediums said to her that caused confusion perhaps?”

I think it is all lies by the spiritual craft. My brother-in-law said that she visited the mediums at Queens Street Temple a week ago. I think we all knew that most mediums are all out to make money out of desperate people. (However there are good mediums who don’t do that). People are paying tons of money to these people for their talisman, prayer and it is very easy for them to exploit. (These are just my opinion) Who knows they may say something for their own gain and told my Sister not to tell anyone or else consequences would be direr I guess this is the reason why brother-in-law could not tell us much on what the mediums actually said to my 3rd Sister.

Friends, don’t consult the “false GODs” Know the different!
These “Gods’ would always demand for money, offerings and sacrifices to help individual to get “cured of sickness, winning of love, money and many other worldliness things.” Many of these mediums would put fear into these desperate people (exploitation) by telling them that if they don’t obey, death be fallen upon them or something bad will happen to their family or all sort of bad Omen.
Bible said “Do not pray to these Idols or Idolatries.”
But one and our only true God, Lord Jesus said, “Come all yee heavy laden people, I will give you rest.” “I am your way to life, the living water.” THE TRUTH, Lord Jesus wants you to live your life to the fullness.” Lord Jesus teach you about love “Love God with all your heart and love your neighbours feverently.” Lord Jesus doesn’t put fear of the worldlism in you but he put life into you! Lord Jesus had healed many people of sickness according to his will. When you live your life for other people, you will not be bothered with self sufferings but to do the Will of God till the day He come. So death is never in the thought of true reborn Christian!

See the different! Lord Jesus only asks you to believe in him. While those “Fake Gods” would ask you to make offerings, sacrifice or even instil fear in you and some even create thoughts in you “that death can help one escape the sufferings.” That is all wrong! When one died, Mark 9:44 “Their worm does not die, And the fire is not quenched.” Worm is the symbolical meaning of one’s memory, and it will lingers on and fire is the suffering in Hell. We had heard of people being brought to witness Hell and how these “residents in Hell” can never forget what they had done (or should have done) and all the sorrowful memories while being alive on earth plus the sufferings in HELL, it is double portion of torture!

Lord Jesus’ death had brought about the Salvation of people, Nations upon nations.
It was strange, my 3rd Sister departure from this world had brought about the union of relatives, we had not seen for almost 20 years.

Since our Lord Jesus had instructed me to stop the resurrection prayer, I prayed to Lord Jesus to show me a dream or a Vision. And true enough, the following morning I had a dream (confimed, I am the only one who have the dream):-

As I was entering the house with 2 or more Angels (at first I thought they were my family members) at the main door, I heard one of the angels spoke to me “your sister is expecting you.” The angels were just behind me as I was at the main door entrance that was swinged widely open, I saw my 3rd sister sited, dressed in pink at kitchen area smiling sweetly as though she had anticipated my arrival. She appeared as though just discharged from Hospital after being completely cured of sickness and in the clean pink discharged dress. She didn’t wave her hand and she was under some kind of shade, her right hand was on the table while her left hand was on her left lap. While my brother-in-law was just behind her in the sun light doing his own things as usual, left hand holding some kind of papers happily typing the keys of a calculator. It seems that he could not see my 3rd sister nor me as I stepped into the hall, as I walk towards my sister. The Vision of my sister seems to be superimposed. She looks like being in the transformed body in her youth of late 20s. I was a little bit frightened at first but her sweet smile and gesture was like as if thanking me for what I had done. I remembered, I prayed a resurrection prayer but stopped praying after the third time and I immediately removed the original post from Facebook, while the email I had already sent out, I could not retrieve. I woke up as I entered the hall because I was frightened and then, I took the MRT to Yishun for the funeral wake.

At Yishun, I told my dream to my younger sister and she told me something. She said that she had received Word of knowledge from our Lord Jesus “Strawberry and cream” at about 9pm plus. **[And she said that 3rd sister had asked God for “permission to go” and Lord Jesus had granted 3rd sister “permission to go” i.e. 3rd sister did not disobey God in going away like this.] I asked what she thought of the strawberry and cream and she replied that the “Strawberry and cream” means 3rd Sister is happily enjoying better life in heaven. A revelation confirmation that I couldn’t accept. But after recalling how my 3rd Sister had smile sweetly as if there were so much joy sprouted out of her, no more sufferings and the way she looked at me as I was entering main entrance of her house seems like she had already anticipated my arrival and the broad smile on her lips and eyes were the combined gesture as if telling me how deeply she had appreciated me for having prayed and interceded for her. No wonder, Lord Jesus told me that there will be no physical resurrection of my 3rd Sister in flesh and blood and our Lord had stopped me from praying that way at about 9pm plus before my eldest son came back home, about the same time my sister Laura received the vision words, it was so amazing. I began to reconcile what my youngest sister had revealed to me, and I could further interpret the symbolic meaning of the vision words. The colour of strawberry being red represents the blood of Jesus and the colour of cream being white represents purified. Thus Lord Jesus had shed blood for my 3rd sister to cleanse her of all sins and she is now emerged as clean purified bride. Thank You Lord Jesus for your grace and glory to your name.

While many may criticised, laughed in disbelieved at what my youngest sister and I had prayed and said thanks to Lord Jesus on Saturday morning, I wouldn’t be angry or unhappy with anyone.
When Lord Jesus had indeed resurrected, many disciples had believed except Thomas who said in John 20:25-29 “Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe. And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.” And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believed.”

What is the cost to you if you were to believe the story?
I’ll tell you the answer, it will cost you NOTHING to believe but if you believe, you will PROFIT shower of blessings and have eternal life.

My friend, don’t fight with the Gift of Knowledge that was given to you by our Holy Spirit. Just look at me, when my youngest sister told me about it, I used my logical mind thinking that only if my 3rd sister had accepted Christ in front of my eyes, then I’ll believe. However at that instant, at my back of my mind I was reasoning out that if my 3rd sister knew that she is not going to heaven, then why she smiled sweetly and with great joy? So, my friend while the logical mind (from the flesh) is telling me that based on principle and logics, it is not possible that my sister can be in heaven while the Spirit man in me had patiently explained and reasoned out to me using heavenly language; the revelations and symbolical meanings. I am convinced and I choose to believe the living Words of God. I listened to the sermon by Rev Robb Thompson 10am service 8th November 2009 and his message came upon me as Rhema words from God. When Lord Jesus was tempted by the devil. Matt 4:3-4 “If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread. But Jesus replied, It is writtened, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'”
And yet another message Matt 16:15-18 “Jesus said to them,”But who do you say that I am? Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him “for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My father who is in Heaven. And I said to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”
I tears profusely as I continue to type this testimony into the words document with my laptop while listening to Rev Robb Thompson. I guess it was the joy within me.
And to tame my carnal minded knowledge of principality or of doctrine, he mentioned about THE PROCESS OF REVELATIONS that the “3rd Point” has been changed from Knowledge to Repentance.” It speaks to me as “Seek repentance for my carnal knowledge.”
These words by Rev Robb Thompson came upon me like thunder bolt of Rhema words. My carnal mind that uses logic to understand these things creates doubts but was completely put to death by the Rhema words spoken by Rev Robb Thompson and I asked Lord Jesus for forgiveness.
I kept telling myself “How can this be! How can this be! I am a nobody. Lord Jesus had spoken to me and had done something better than doing the physical resurrection. Father Jesus had redeemed my 3rd sister into Kingdom of heaven. I still couldn’t believe, who am I to deserve the prayer being answered.”

The reassuring words came from the Bible Matt 18:19 “Assuredly I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.”

Wisdom gave one the ability to interpret and understand God’s will and to receive blessings, while disbelieve (in great doubts), one will suffer detachment from God and will not be blessed!

Just like what Rev Robb Thompson had preached, “by saying all these things, I risked being judged and persecute by people.”

Even till the end, Lord Jesus is still bleeding blood for people Horses with No names.

Then I advised my youngest sister that, my dream can be told. The revelation must be treated like transfiguration of Lord Jesus.

Many work for Lord Jesus has been done, many relative’s relationship has been rekindled in friendship, and we have not seen each other for almost 20 years! The timing was such that even many relatives who were supposedly away are already in Singapore to come together. Praise the Lord. Now I fully understand why my Sister was smiling thankfully when she saw me at the main entrance of her house. The Spirit man in me had won the battle; the logical mind now understands everything with the Rhema words presented wholesomely. Lord Jesus had given my 3rd Sister a second chance, preached the Gospel to her once again and she accepted it! My 3rd sister is now rejoicing with Mom and Ah Bong in heaven.

1 Peter 3:18-19 “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit, by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison, who formerly were disobedient.”

Stanley’s youngest sister adds this: Yesterday, on Monday (9-11-09), the Lord revealed to me this of our 3rd sister – “Praise her.” He repeated it one more time “Praise.” I remember when I was a child; one of my sisters brought me to a Chinese church. I believe it could be my 3rd sister. It is possible that before she passed away, she returned to the Lord. And who knows how she prayed for our family in the long ago past and now currently also before she left. I deeply believe her suicide was not against God’s will but was, as shared earlier, permitted by God for His own mysterious reasons. Perhaps that is why, when I visited her the Sunday before she passed away, as I recall it, her expression appeared to be that of someone at peace. From her expression, she did not appear to be struggling in her heart.

** This part of the notes needs deeper understanding. Though I personally see it as my youngest sister’s personal opinion derived from the understanding of the Vision words given to her by our Lord Jesus, I would rather explain then to doubts. First and foremost, we all understand that all things are make to happen by God for a purpose. I had not forgotten Rev Dr A.R. Bernard’s preaching “All things are make to happen by God as long as benefits out weights consequences.” Just like Lord Jesus; knowing that he will be condemned and crucified and he still go to Jerusalem. An act equivalent to ‘suicide’ of modern day. But Lord Jesus has to do it because he is fulfilling God’s will. There are others saints of God who acted the same way too and was either put to death or executed to fulfil God’s will. On the same token, God allowed the devil (or Satan’s servant) to influence my 3rd sister to give up her life and fulfilled many part of God’s work. In completion, we will see the glory and grace of God. Remember, all things are allow or make to happen by the invinsible hands of God.
This testimony is not to give wrong ideas, believe or understanding that suicide is right with God. It is NOT. Why? Because Lord Jesus wants you to continue to love God feverently and do his will on earth. (While my 3rd sister, Lord Jesus has a role for her, see the colour representation below that matches her character.) Remember, when Lord Jesus was being tempted by the devil Matt 4:6 “If you are the son of God, throw yourself down.” But Lord Jesus rebuke the devil Matt 4:7 “It is written again, “You shall not tempt the Lord Your God.”

What about this message Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My father in heaven.”
The bible message is very clear! Not all who confessed to have accepted Christ and called him “Lord, Lord shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but only those do does the will of My father.” Very Big Questions! Throughout your whole Christian life, how would you know if you are doing the will of God? Doing the will of God is not to be told by someone or by acquiring method or by measure of academically trained. There has to be dreams and visions, revelations upon revelations and confirmations upon confirmations and even Lord Jesus may sent Angels to reveal to you. All these must be tested by the living words of God.

My 3rd sister’s conversion to be a rightful resident in heaven has everything to do with accomplishing the will of God.

1. Helped me to write the end time resurrection prayer for the buried.
2. Foster relation amongst family and relatives. The timing is such that even those who are supposed to be in another country are here together.Fulfill the desire of 5th sister and myself to meet distance relatives.
3. Moved me to write email that makes my family members read the testimony of “Mom and Ah Bond in heaven.” Planting of seeds in the hearts.
4. Gave me the key to unlocked the secret answer to my sister Laura question “What happen to those people who didn’t have the chance to hear the Gospel, like our great grand parent or ancestors?”
5. Gave me the key to unlock the secret answer to my dunting question “Why Lord Jesus would has to continue bringing true believers to witness Hell and leave these people for a short while to fan for themselves against the demons and evil at the depth of Hell?”
6. Gift of knowledge given to me, my Mom dressed with Purple, my 4th sister dressed in GREEN and now my 3rd sister dressed in PINK shall be the angels continuing to do the will of God till the day HE comes.
7. And of cause, brought words of knowledge and dream unto me, vision words and word of knowledge to my sister Laura and word of knowledge to my nephew Kelvin for the completion of this testimony.
8. Most importantly, the seeds had been planted for the Kingdom of God.

From 6th Nov 2009 to 8th Nov 2009, I believe there are much things done, people just have to come out and share.

Here are the significant meanings of the dress colour given to Mom, 4th sister and 3rd sister:

Purple is royalty. A mysterious colour, purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality.
Green symbolizes the master healer, the life force, self-respect and well being.
Pink is the colour of universal love and provides feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth and love, acceptance.

Addon notes (21/12/2009): Thus knowing the role of Angels is very important, so that you know how to deploy them to do God’s work in Jesus’s name. As confirmed by Rev Dr John Avanzini on 6/12/2009. I specifically prayed for an Angel to be deployed to heal our sister-in-Christ, residing in LA about 2 to 3 days before it was posted in Fb by Pastor Kong himself that she was healed. And he confirmed it during one of the sermon that an Angel had healed her as prophesied by Rev Dr Steve Munsey. Praise the Lord!

ANYWAY, IS THERE ANYONE WHO HAS THE AUTHORITY AND WISDOM TO QUESTION FATHER JESUS’ DECISION? DON’T BE LIKE THOMAS WHO WOULD ONLY BELIEVE IF HE PERSONALLY SEE AND FEEL BY HIS OWN HAND.

Father Jesus said “Do not be UNBELIEVING, be BELIEVING.” John 20:25-29

Lord Jesus’ assurance for all believers:

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.”

Add on Notes:

Reply from my nephew :-

Thank you for sharing your dream and interpretation to it. I had also prayed to God that He’ll resurrect my mom physically too. But Jesus also placed a thought in my mind not to do so. I was very upset at that moment. And so, I asked him if it is within His Will and grace, can He bring salvation to my mum and bring her into heaven. With regard to this, I heard nothing about it. All this happened during the 2nd night (shou ye).

It is only when I read your message that I felt relief in my heart because I’ll be able to see my mom in heaven. I’ll tell my dad about this soon, though He has not come to know Christ yet. As well as my younger brother because it’ll bring relief in his heart too.

Once again, I want to thank you for bringing the message to me. More importantly, to thank God for his immeasurable grace for all of us.

Yours Sincerely,
Kelvin

Today (15th Nov 2009) at the Mandai Crematorium. I had check with the others, so it is confirmed that I am the only chosen to have the dream of my 3rd sister in pink dress. And it was further confirmed that this is the same type of colour dress she worn on her last day. This is the reply from my Nephew aftering reading the shorten version of this testimony.

Afraid of blood of Jesus

Afraid of the Blood of Jesus?

Before I talk about this daunting question, allow me to give thanks and praise to our Lord Jesus.
“Thank you Lord Jesus for revealing to me of your kind love and teaching when you appeared in front of me during the second song by Bob Fitts. You appeared in front of me in your robe dripping with blood and thank you for speaking to me. I love you and thank you for all your grace given to me.”

I would like to thank all brothers and sisters for being very open in their opinion. Having oneself opened up will leads to more blessing from our Father Jesus in Heaven.

I wasn’t afraid of seeing our Lord in his blood soaked robe, I was puzzled as to why he appeared in front of me in this way. So Lord Jesus spoke to me:
“Why puzzled my son? Even to the last few days, I will still be bleeding blood for people because of their sins.”

I sincerely thanks Lord Jesus for having prepared me to see his Vision without fear. So I really find it strange that people I spoke to and testified to about this Vision was filled with fear as if they cannot see vision of Lord Jesus robe dripping with blood. So their confession, they only know how to use the Calvary and that Lord Jesus had died for our sin and he had resurrected on the 3rd day. I think many would even go to the extend of not talking about the precious blood of Lord Jesus. Perhaps, it is HIS for me to share this testimony.  Lord Jesus had prepared me to fully understand and get accustomed and used to seeing and using HIS blood for protection and to use it for spiritual Warfare against the enemy.

First, acknowledgment of the Important of telling people about the Blood of Lord Jesus.
Last year our Lord spoke to me that I must transcribe the speech by Richard Roberts, in one part of his sermon he talk about certain people who refused to talk about the blood of Lord Jesus and how he convincingly make known to us that without the shedding of the blood Lord Jesus, all of us wouldn’t be here today in this church. We thank God for the shedding of the Blood of Lord Jesus Christ so that we can be saved. Here is his sermon about the blood of Lord Jesus:-
Rev Richard Roberts, 2nd April 2006 in CHC.
“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 either. 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.”

My Wife dreamed about walking along the sea side seeing dirty blood washed to shore one morning.
“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.” I do not understand the meaning either but I did asked in prayer as request to know the meaning of it.
Being in Spirit, my Sister Laura wrote a review article. You can read this whole article by Click here “Heaven is so Real” by review on Choo Thomas. So I borrowed the book and read, and what was so amazing is that it helped me to understand the meaning of my wife’s dream.

You can read my personal review and revelations by Click this link here

When I was young, probably about 6 to 7 years old, we have this Chinese belief (maybe pass down from older generation), that if we bit our finger and throw our blood against the Ghost and it will frighten them away. Now I know that this was a myth but I was just wondering, how do they get this idea?

Old Chinese soap opera used blood writing as expression of deep love.
During my youth where all the show was in black and white. I remembered those Chinese soap opera (mostly Hokkien at that time). Always you would see those weeping woman going to lost her love one or having to depart from her love one, she would tear part of her inner garment (white) to use for writing of expression of love. And guess what she used for writing those “love letter”? She would bit her finger and use the bleeding blood to write those touchy words for her lover to see. Wow, what an expression of love with blood! Come to think of it, it is kind of funny, many Chinese show during that have this part of drama.

We would like to thank Pastor Kong for his sermon that connects us back to Ancient China where we had identified that we are praying to the same God. With this understanding, it helps me to further understand and confirm the connection with many Chinese believes.

The blood marking saved the first born of Israel.

Exodus 12:11 “On that night I will pass through the land of Egypt and strike down every firstborn son and firstborn male animal in the land of Egypt. I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt, for I am the Lord! But the blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign, marking the houses where you are staying. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. This plague of death will not touch you when I strike the land of Egypt.”
The blood marking on doorposts saved the firstborn son of Israel. So perhaps, those who disobeyed God, those who are afraid of blood or found painting blood on the doorposts disgusting could not save their first born. In present day, the only disgusting blood that maybe painted on someone’s door is the work of bad people such as loan shark! But you need the precious blood of Lord Jesus to cover your household to protect you from all harms.

The Apostles Creed.

When we took bread in remembrance of Lord Jesus, it represents the body of Christ broken up for us, that is in remembrance of his body broken for us on the Calvary.
When we took the wine, Lord Jesus said, this is his blood in remembrance of him, his blood cleanse us of our sins.
So friends, we had been doing this again and again every month to remind of Lord Jesus’s dying on the Calvary for us and his blood is being used to continuously cleanse us of our sins. So how is it that we have believers being afraid of seeing Lord Jesus having his robe dripping with blood? Only understanding the Calvary is NOT GOOD ENOUGH! We need the blood of Lord Jesus running in us, carrying his DNA. (In another words, meaning we need the living words of God operate in our life). We need to be humble before God. Just like Jacob, he wrestled with God, refusing to let him go untill God touched the socket of his thigh and he limped for the rest of his life, to remind him that he needed God badly.
Genesis 32:25 “touched the socket of his thigh; so the socket of Jacob’s thigh was dislocated while he wrestled with him.”

For us, we are fortunate, we only need to wrestle for the Blood of Lord Jesus to help us cleanse of our sins continuously. Let it be that we be touched and engraved in our heart that we need Lord Jesus’ blood to cleanse us all the time. We don’t have to limped like Jacob to remind us that we needed God all the time but with help of our Holy Spirit who engraved in our heart and constantly gives us convictions that we can ask to be repentance of our sins and we will be continuously be cleansed by the Blood of Lord Jesus so that we can be emerged as a clean bride in the pure white robe that is white as snow, a proper outfit, for his second coming, the BRIDEGROOM.

In Conclusion,

I am really blessed and fortunate to be able see the vision of our Lord Jesus standing in front of me with his robe dripping with blood. And I thanked Abba father Lord Jesus for patiently speaking and explain to me so that I can understand the passage in Book of Revelation completely.
Rev 19:13-16 “He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God. The armies of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed him on white horses. From his mouth came a sharp sword to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He will release the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty, like juice flowing from a winepress. On his robe at his thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.” I wrote this Bible message on 10th of July 2009 “Horses with No Name. I do not quite understand why would our Lord of all Lords purposely wore a robe dipped in blood. Now I understand, it is actually the continuous dripping of HIS precious blood that caused the robe to be dipped in his pool of blood. And I fully understood our Lord Jesus message “Even to the last few days, I will still be bleeding blood for people because of their sins.”

So my friends, maybe the next time, if it is HIS will, Lord Jesus may stand in front of you with his robe dripping with blood. Just wonder what your reaction is going to be, would you be very fearful? Would you be like the “Boat people” who said they saw “Ghost”? But only one person, Simon Peter rubbed his eyes 3 times and saw the Vision of Lord Jesus and he gotten out of “the Boat”, away from those “Boat People”, and walk on faith with Lord Jesus!

As a matter of fact, every first week of the month, we recite the Apostle Creed, and we partake the Holy Communion.

Lord Jesus said :-
Matt 26:27 “And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. He gave it to them and said, “Each of you drink from it, for this is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many. Mark my words ‘I will not drink wine again until the day I drink it new with you in my Father’s Kingdom.”

Pastor Tan had spoken about the meaning of Holy Communion. Is this being done just to be in remembrance of our Lord Jesus or to remind us that HIS body is broken for us and that we should be like Lord Jesus, our body should be broken for other people too. Now, I would like to add one more if you’ll permit. Lord Jesus’s blood is being used to wash away our sins, covered us for protection and also to use it to defeat the enemy of God in any spiritual war fare. Although obviously our own blood is not qualified to wash away sin but we can bleed blood for one another. (Meaning putting in time, energy and sacrifices to help one another.)

Want to drink new wine with Lord Jesus in Father’s Kingdom? You must not be fearful of Lord Jesus’ blood but treasure it and wrestle for it so that you will be cleaned completely. The Sheep will be able to recognize his own shepherd’s voice and calling.

“A good sherpherd brings out his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” John 10:4-5

End Notes:

The blood of Lord Jesus can be used for many Christian life application:-

1. Salvation. Without blood of Lord Jesus,we would not be saved.
2. For protection. Pray to Lord Jesus for his blood to cover us for protection,for health, for safety, etc. His blood to cover over your finances to protect it from the devourer of finances.
3. As a weapon to defeat the enemy in spiritual warfare. Mary K. Baxter wrote in her book “Divine Revelation of Spiritual Warfare.”

Taken from Book, “A Divine revelation of Spiritual Warfare.” by Mary K. Baxter

THE POWER OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS.
“Boldness to enter the Holiest of the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which he consecrated for us through …His flesh.” Hebrews 10:19-20
When we plead for the blood of Jesus to cover us or other people, demon tremble at the name of Jesus and they fleed at the sight of the blood of the Lamb.

Joshua Tree Lesson

Joshua Tree

Joshua tree is also called Yucca brevifolia and is a plant species belonging to genus Yucca in the family Agavaceae.This monocotyledonoustree is native to southwestern North American the states of California,Arizona, Utah and Nevada,where it is confined mostly to the Mojave Desert between 400-1,800 m (2,000-6,000 feet). It thrives in the open grasslands of Queen Valley
and Lost Horse Valley in
Joshua Tree National Park.

How was the name Joshua tree derived?

The name Joshua tree was given by a group of Mormon settlers who crossed the Mojave Desert in the mid-19th century. The tree’s unique shape reminded them of a Biblical story in which Joshua
reaches his hands up to the sky in prayer.


A BRANCHLESS JOSHUA TREE

Growth and development

Joshua trees are fast growers for the desert; new seedlings may grow at an
average rate of 7.6
cm (3.0in) per year in their first ten years, then only grow about 3.8cm (1.5in) per year thereafter. The trunk of a Joshua tree is made of thousands of small fibers and lacks annual growth rings, making it difficult to determine the tree’s age. This tree has a top-heavy branch system, but also has what has been described as a “deep and extensive” root system, with roots possibly reaching up to 11m (36ft) away. If it survives the rigors of the desert it can live for hundreds of years with some specimens surviving up to a thousand years. The tallest trees reach about 15 m tall. New plants can grow from seed,but in some populations, new stems grow from underground rhizomes that spread out around the Joshua tree. Spring rains may bring clusters of white-green flowers on long stalks at branch tips. Like all desert blooms, Joshua trees depend on just the perfect conditions: well-timed rains, and for the Joshua tree, a crisp winter freeze. Researchers believe that freezing temperatures may damage the growing end of a branch and stimulate flowering,
followed by branching. You may notice some Joshua trees grow
like straight stalks; these trees have never bloomed which is why they are branchless! In addition to ideal weather, the pollination of flowers requires a visit from the yucca moth. The moth collects pollen while laying her eggs inside the flower ovary. As seeds develop and mature, the eggs hatch into larvae, which feed on the seeds. The tree relies on the moth for pollination and the moth relies on the tree for a few seeds
for her young a happy symbiosis. The Joshua tree is also capable of sprouting from roots and branches. Being able to reproduce vegetative allows a much quicker recovery after damaging floods or fires, which may kill the main tree. Many birds, mammals, reptiles, and insects depend on the Joshua tree for food and shelter. Keep your eyes open for the yellow and black flash of a Scott’s oriole busy making a nest in a yucca,s branches. At the base of rocks you may find a wood rat nest built with spiny yucca leaves for protection. As evening falls, the desert night lizard begins poking around under the log of a fallen Joshua tree in search of tasty insects.

You may be at ease with pine or hardwood, or find shade under the domesticated trees in your city park, but in the high desert, Joshua is our tree. It is an important part of the Mojave Desert ecosystem, providing habitat for numerous birds, mammals, insects, and lizards. Joshua tree forests tell a story of survival, resilience, and beauty borne through perseverance. They are the silhouette that reminds those of us who live here that we are home. Like the Lorax we speak for the trees, but often the trees speak to us.

Panicle

Fruit

Once they bloom, the trees are pollinated by the yucca moth, which spreads pollen while laying her eggs inside the flower. The moth larvae feed on the seeds of the tree, but enough seeds are left behind to produce more trees. The Joshua tree is also able to actively abort ovaries in which too many eggs have been laid.

Summary
of how Joshua Tree can survive in Desert.

  1. Most important of all, they have deep rooting system, enabling them to draw water from underground.
  2. Capable of vegetating more roots to survive damaging floods or fires.
  3. Able to bloom into more branches in perfect timing and condition.

Learning from the Joshua Tree –  Biblical application for Christian.

1)Deep Rooting System

Just like the Joshua Tree, it survived in the hardest desert because of its deep rooting system, the ability to draw water from the deepest underground where there is stream of living water.

Christian survival is dependent on the deep rooting with the Holy Spirit, always in the awe, realm of the Holy Spirit in order to draw the living water and spiritual strength so that one can survive even in the worst hash desert condition. There is much contentment and comfort hidden deeply away from where human eyes can’t see, spring of living water, the hidden manna can be found.

John 3:5 “Unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.”

Building on a Solid Foundation

Matt 24-25 “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.”

Water speaks of Living word of God, having the faith believing in the living word of God and be born of the Spirit (baptised).

2) Vegetate more roots

Once the Joshua Tree had the deep rooting system established, it didn’t stop there, it continues to vegetate more and more root branches deep underneath the ground. This will help the Joshua tree to survive even though above the ground surface there are much damaging floods or fires.

So for Christian to survive, do not stop at first instant of deep rooting with the Holy Spirit upon being baptised. Go forth and vegatate more roots with our Holy Spirit, thus growing more branches of hidden Spiritual Gifts of which; Word of Discernment, Word of Wisdom and Word of prophecy is primarily important. Thus, even though being weathered by floods of persecutions, trials, and test by fire above the ground level, you will survive victorously!

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.”

Thus the Rooting system the roots, are hidden Spiritual Gifts that is hidden underground where it not visible nor easily seen nor understood by man.

3) Blooming with more branches

For Joshua Tree to bloom and have more branches, it needs perfect conditions:

  1. A well-timed rain.

  2. A crisp winter freezing, the end of branches was broken and this stimulate growing end of branch and stimulate flowering combined with growing of more branches.

As an individual Christian, at times we are too happy or contented with what we had achieved. We are very satisfied with the number of branches we have. Symbolic meaning of branches represents our achievements, the works we had accomplished in Church or Kingdom of Heaven and it also represents spiritual fruits such as love which is the main essence of standalone ability to draw people closer and expand branches from this community love. But we becomes stagnant, there is no synergy of new Visions to do more. Do not be like the branchless Joshua Tree! It looks ugly! At time like, this we needed to be place into the well-timed rain from God, exposed to extreme crisp winter so that we maybe broken and bring forth stimulated growth, evident by blooming flowers and sprouting of branches. This is the same for Cell Group, it is good to be big but there will come a time when we’re contented with a Big family and just stopped there. So we have to pray for the same “Well timed rain” where the rain symbolize “Blessings from God” and then be exposed to “ crisp winter freezing, Crisp winter freezing symbolize “chastening” just like Jonah being put in the belly of the fish. Only then, with the complete brokenness and with direct well timed commandment from God then the division can proceeded for growing more branches of Cell Group. Please note that this is different from the simplified decision making by Cell Group leader where he or she “feel the need to expand cell group” and the decision making is based on numerical calculation whereas the well-timed rain and crisp winter freezing to permit sprouting of more branches is from the invisible hands of God.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.’

Thus if every members can incubate more spiritual fruits, then the retention of members and expansion of a cell group is a natural process by the Grace of our Lord Jesus.

Thus the flowering blooms and the growing branches, are evidents of Spiritual Fruits that may become tangible or visible due to the resultant of various love actions taken to materialized it or it can be felt by people.

The name Joshua tree was given by a group of Mormon settlers who crossed the Mojave Desert in the mid-19th century. The tree’s unique shape reminded them of a Biblical story in which Joshua reaches his hands up to the sky in prayer. But somehow I gotten the revelation from our H.S. that the name was derived from Joshua’s ability to survive in the desert because he had deep rooting with God and a remarkable event happened, he caused the Sun to stand still so that Israel won the battle against their enemy.

Joshua 10:13 “So the Sun stood still, And the moon stopped, Till the people had revenge Upon their enemies.”

End notes:

You can’t determine the spiritual age of a Christian
Unlike normal tree where its age can be determined by the ring formed by its bark in its trunk, the trunk of a Joshua tree is made of thousands of small fibers and lacks annual growth rings, making it difficult to determine the tree’s age.

In the same way you can’t determine the spiritual age of a Christian.
How many of us are feeling like being in the “Desert” dry and lost, fighting the battle alone without any support?
I strongly encourage you to have deep rooting with our Holy Spirit. With HIS command in Jesus’ name; armies of God’s warriors will be with you in any spiritual battle fields and not only that; many Angels will be at hand to support you. There is no fear against those who can kill only the body but not the soul. Our Holy Spirit will lead you out of the “desert’ into the promise land where there are springs of living water in the valley. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

Added notes 20/1/2013 (Thanks Pastor Eileen for the Bible verse):
“Blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river, and it shall not see and fear when heat comes, but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious and full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8

Horses with NO name

Genesis 2:18-22 “Then the Lord God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.’ So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man* to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him. So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs* and closed up the opening. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man.”

There are some debate going on in blogs, some try to find out how long does it takes Adam to name the animals. Some said, easy don’t take long. Fish, Birds, etc. Some argued that it would take very long time as he have to go around many places to name the animals but the other people replied that Adam don’t have to because God brought them to Adam for him to gave name.

My own understanding and comment, God commanded Adam to gave name to all the wild animals and the birds of the sky, not to classified that under different categories. So it was, all wild animals and birds of the sky were given name by Adam, maybe to one fish he named “sushi” and another “ichiban” ha ha ha. Just kidding. Maybe Adam treated those wild animals and the birds of the sky as passionate as his own children that he calls them by name. You don’t call your children under the category of Boy and Girl, do you? Of course not! You gave them name. Come to think of it how does Adam able to know and remember so many names for each wild animals and birds of the sky? That really needs God’s wisdom in order to do it. Yes, Adam has God Wisdom, and he DO NOT have physical eyes, he has only Spiritual eyes untill he sinned.

Genesis 1:26 “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness”

The Wisdom of God is far more suppreme. Up to date, no machine nor human can count the number of hair one has in his or her head. But God loves us so much that he even number all the hairs on our head! Matt 10:30 “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.”

ADAM SINNED AND LOST HIS ABILITY TO KNOW THE NAMES
This super natural ability of Adam to know each and every living things name was broken when he sinned by eating the Fruits of Knowledge. His Spiritual Eyesight is being lost immediately while his physical eyes are opened. First thing Adam and Eve were concern with is looking at themselves being naked and they sewed apron to covered themselves. He no longer thinks like God but thinks only of worldy things. They can no longer have the ability to call all animal by the name he had given them. So no man knows the name of wild animals and the birds, it is being preserved in Kingdom of Heaven. Not even your own name that God is to gave you if you repented.

WILD HORSES ARE CALLED MUSTANG

Thus now, we have HORSES ARE WITH NO NAME. They roamed in the wild as what we called mustang. They are usually in herds. When approached by human, they would run away. But there are some, a stallion who will fight back and they can be dangerous, normally they would attack human by their back kick. I remembered there was once a friend of mine went to Johore Bahru, (West Malaysia) to visit a Zoo. While we are stroking the horse, my friend decide to walk behind the horse. It all happened so fast, next moment we saw the horse kicked my friend at the stomach with its hind legs. He was being throw behind 3 feets away. My friend suffered great pain, luckily the attack wasn’t at his ribs, they could have been broken. Lesson learned, NEVER WALK TO THE BACK OF THE HORSE.

HOW HORSES IS BEING DOMESTICATED AND USED.
The Greeks used the horse for the first Pony Express, and although the Chinese were the first to invent the saddle, it was the Greeks who first gave us the horseshoe, although it wasn’t much like the shoes worn by today’s horses. It was the Greeks who also gave us the most famous horse in history, the Trojan Horse, which they used to fell the people of Troy and thus win a long-standing war.
The Romans prized their horses as great warriors, much like the Asians did. There was one great difference, the Asians preferred pony sized horses, preferring their sure footedness to the large horses that the Romans desired. In fact, Alexander the Great used ponies to defeat his enemies as they battled throughout the mountains. It was the Romans that introduced the horse in sport, bringing us the chariot races. The Greeks soon followed with the first horse and rider horse race, around 600 BC. During this time, many religions believed that animals were actually Gods and there were some horses that were given mythical properties, like the winged Pegasus and the horned unicorn.
Thanks to the Romans, that’s why we have Turf Club today. Many broken marriages, people hating one another, lots of greed for money and killing due to vengence for those involved in horse betting. Do you know what happened to horses that cannot race anymore due to broken leg or injuries? They were being shot and their meat given to Zoo to feed the resident in there, as I was told. (Addon note 15/09/2009)Learning point; Horses that race for money will be killed one day when they becomes “useless”. While those horses that enrolled and became the warrior for God will have eternal life.

PAUL CALLED BY THE LORD TO DO THE WILD HORSE MINISTRIES.
Paul does not “break horses”, he “gentles” them, with words and pats, until they let him bridle, saddle and ride them – all within two hours. Occasionally, Paul can get the horse to totally submit by lying down. Paul says the Lord has given him this ability and is using him to reach people who shy away from organized religion and church. As the horse submits to Paul’s ministrations, people submit to God’s. “We have witnessed individual lives being changed because of their willingness to submit to Jesus Christ”, says Paul.

HORSES IN BOOK OF REVELATIONS.
Rev 6: 2-8
(1) a man on a white horse, with a bow and a crown, who is a conqueror–
The Crown means authority, has power to control. The Antichrist has been using his false doctrine (bow, shooting poisonous arrows) to influence people to cause them to fallout from being a true believers.
(2) a red horse, whose rider has a sword — war.
Many war had already come to pass and is still happening. YOu are seeing this happening in China, people killing one another. North Korea is firing missile. They are the most dangerous country, could they ignite the global war?
(3) a black horse, whose rider is holding a pair of scales in his hand, symbolizing famine and economic chaos, depression and natural disasters.
In fact the scale represent the apportionment of the measure of punishment on 2 worlds, east or west. Sometimes it tip to the left, sometime to the right, finding its balance. We are experiencing the worst economic chaos now. Addon notes (24/1/2010), also natural disasters which leads to the arrival of a pale horse.
(4) A pale horse, whose rider is named Death, and Hades rides with him.
When you say that someone looked pale, it means the person is not feeling well due to sickness or diseases. Now we are experiencing the swine flu, H1N1 our break. Is this not the prophecy happening?

HORSES WITH NO NAME
Thus, as you can see from the Book of revelation, no name is given to the horses mentioned. The symbolic meaning of horses stands for power and forces and the colour which stands for season of events. Horses only charge forward never walk backwards. It is telling us about the unimaginable power and forces that is operating in this world, making events happening and it is going round in a cycle.
In year 1929, The Great Depression had passed. Now 2008 is another Great Depression. As we can see, the spiritual warfare is real.
First you have the white horse, the activity of AntiChrist increase because of great revival happening. Then you have the Red horse, war everywhere, Then you have the black horse, economic chaos and disasters and now can you see it happening? Next, the pale horse, the plaque and deseases, swine flu, H1N1 outbreak.
Can you see the cycle? Will Lord Jesus let this cycle of event happen again and again? Because we have a good God, a long suffering God, whose bowels of mercy and compassion have been moved to extend this time for a short time indeed! Don’t take things for granted, children of God.
Lord Jesus said through Linda, February 1, 2009 “All in heaven is now prepared and ready and I am giving this one last shout! There shall be no other delay, past this one! I only delay now as My bowels of mercy and compassion have been moved to extend this time for a short time indeed! For, many of you, oh My Bride, stand on the brink of being ready! But, you are not ready!”

Rev 19: 11-16 The Rider on the White Horse “Then I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. Its rider was named Faithful and True, for he judges fairly and wages a righteous war. His eyes were like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him that no one understood except himself. He wore a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God. The armies of heaven, dressed in the finest of pure white linen, followed him on white horses. From his mouth came a sharp sword to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod. He will release the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty, like juice flowing from a winepress. On his robe at his thigh* was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.

Addon note (4/8/2011) During the second song by renowned songwriter and legendary worship leader, Bob Fitts, Father Jesus walked towards me in true vision above those people sitted in front of me. The scene was like the day of His crucification, twilight or sunset. I could not see His face but I could smell His flesh blood and saw it dripping from His robe. I was wondering in my thought ‘Why would Son of Man, purposely walked to me in His robe dripping with blood.’ Then Father Jesus spoke to me “Son, why are you puzzled? In the last days, I still be dripping blood for people.” Immediately, wisdom helped me understood His message. Lord Jesus used this scene to explain the meaning in the above Bible passage “He wore robe dipped in blood.” Reason, at that time of writing, I asked myself “Why would Lord Jesus purposely dipped His robe in blood”. Now I understood, it wasn’t like that, His love for the world (us) is so great that even till the last days, He will continue to bleed blood for people to cleanse their sins for salvation, thus the robe flowed with His blood non stop and still dipped in pool of blood. Praise the Lord for His unfailing love.

As you can see this rider on the white horse is Lord Jesus’ second coming. All those white horses with no name mentioned are Christians who are truely the bribe of Lord Jesus, full of power and obsolute obedience. This is the body of Christ in working together as one body, it does not matter if you are called to be the white horse or the warrior siting on the horse fighting the battle together. One got to have the Wisdom of God to fully understand the sysmbolic meaning in the Book of Revelations.
What matters most is that you already have your name given in a white stone and only you will know it. In heaven, “ALL HORSES HAVE NAMES AND IS GIVEN BY OUR FATHER JESUS.”
Rev 2:17 “And I will give to each one a white stone, and on the stone will be engraved a new name that no one understands except the one who receives it.” Sit back and enjoy this song by America, some people say that it is about drug heroine even though Dewey personally explained that it was not. You can see how people can easily manipulate the words written by people.
For me, I find this particularly a meaningful decription of a person whose life is a dry as a desert; “looking at a river bed. And the story it told of a river that flowed. Made me sad to think it was dead.”
This part of lyric is like telling us of a back slide Christian whose life was once flowed with living water of Lord Jesus but now it is sad to see that is is lifeless, it is dead.
Then “After nine days I let the horse run free, Cause the desert had turned to sea and a perfect disguise above, Under the cities lies a heart made of ground, but the humans will give no love”
This is quite a biblical representation of Hellish life down under after being spiritually dead for 9 days, where down there no human love can be found. Everyone is like a living dead. Letting the horse go, meaning letting go the power, ability to move on with life, in other words giving up the will to live.
(Chinese Idioms, Have Dragon and horse vigor, ???? )

How many of us has been moved by this inner groaning with the Holy Spirit that we want to see many rivers flow once again even in the hard desert (difficult situation, Cultural Mandate does it). The Vision Lord Jesus showed me “Be a desert Spiritual Mentor, raising Army of warriors sitting on white horses with unknown name on Earth but have their name writtened on the White Stones in Heaven. The only weapon I shall have is the the living word of God, The Bible.”

td300c “I actually hung out with Dewey, the lead singer of America, last year and we asked him what the song meant. He said he wrote the song in while he was in Europe, on tour I believe. He said it was so rainy and dark all the time and he was just sick of being there. The song is basically his fantisy of being out of rainy Europe where everyone knew who he was. He went to a sunny place where nobody knew him.”


HORSE WITH NO NAME by America

On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of soundI’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain
La, la …After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
Made me sad to think it was deadYou see I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain
La, la …After nine days I let the horse run free
‘Cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
there was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with it’s life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no loveYou see I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain
La, la …

Why not Sugar and Darkness?

Chapter 1 – Sugar and Salt

Why not sugar and darkness?

Matthew 5:13-16, Jesus tells his disciples, “You are the salt of the earth” and “You are the light of the world.”

Yes, we had read these words in the Bible, heard in Church sermons many times and sing about it many times. I was just wondering “Why not sugar and darkness?” I had already wanted to write this article to try to explain why our Lord Jesus use Salt as a required element of a Christian instead of sugar and while the other element is light (which is pretty obvious). A few months ago, I had already want to write about it but I confessed 🙂 , partly is due to my laziness, but on the other hand, I also realised that our Holy Spirit wanted me to delay for a little while, till I had received more of the Rhema words from Abba father Jesus. Many thanks to Pastor Kong Hee and Pastor Tan E.P. for their teaching on the Songs of Solomon. The knowledges that I had gained from the BS seems to have completed the installments of the knowledge needed for this article.

I once told my friend Freddy Heng about my intention to write this article to try to answer the daunting question “Why not sugar and darkness?” Freddy told me this “Stanley, do you know one thing? If you burn sugar, it will become charcoal because it contains carbohydrate while salt can never burn out.” So, this morning, 14th June 2009, I did an experiment by putting some sugar and salt through extreme fire just to prove the point. As you can see in the video below; the sugar had became a useless heep of carbon while the salt never burn out and is still a useful salt; the fire did nothing to it and in fact is being further purified by the burning away of impurities. That is some revelation huh? Being a Christian, you are called to be the salt for the earth, becoming more useful for the Kingdom of God as you passed through fire. Let’s us study further into Salt and sugar and then we’ll talk about light and darkness in the second chapter.

Part 1 – Usefulness of Sugar.

a) What is sugar and how it help our body function?

Sugar is a basic carbohydrate that every healthy body need for energy. Put another way, sugar is an essential fuel for muscles, internal organs, and first-rate brain function.
The natural sugar you buy at the grocery store has only 15 calories a teaspoon. People gain weight by taking in more calories than they burn over the course of a day. Obesity is the result of eating too much food, especially those with a high caloric content. Sugar is converted immediately into the fuels a body needs.

Sugar is a chemical combination of Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen and refers to a large group of carbohydrates that are soluble in water, sweet to the taste and either directly or indirectly fermentable. Depending on how the Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen are combined or uncombined, we get sucrose (cane or beet sugar), glucose or dextrose (grape sugar), maltose (malt sugar), fructose, levulose (honey or fruit sugar), lactose (milk sugar), etc.

Sugar is virtually devoid of any key vitamins and minerals. Sugar contains 16 calories per teaspoon but has no B vitamins, chromium, magnesium, zinc or other trace minerals that the body needs to digest and metabolize it. Thus, to fully move the sugar through your digestive system, you body has to take B vitamins and other trace minerals from the healthy the food you eat, or from vitamins and minerals that your body is storing for future use. As a result, the sugar essentially robs your body of these beneficial nutrients. . Your body could be using these nutrients for more important purposes such as fighting infections, warding off allergies, or just plain energy.

Sugar gums up the immune system. Your immune system is made up of numerous antibodies who act like Pacman and attack foreign invaders. Medical studies have found that antibody production drops after people have as little as 18 grams of sugar, about as much as you’d find in half of a can of regular soda. Sugar interferes with the cells of the immune system. Eating just 3 oz of sugar can result in a 50% reduction of the ability of the white blood cells to gobble up and kill viruses and bacteria for up to five hours.

Ingesting sugar can cause a significant rise in triglycerides, cause kidney damage, reduce helpful high density fats (lipoproteins) and promote and elevation of the harmful low density fats and all those problems associated with vitamin deficiencies. Due to the need to use up your body’s minerals, eating sugar can cause a chromium deficiency, copper deficiency, and can interfere with absorption of calcium and magnesium. an imbalance which can cause hyperactivity, anxiety, concentration difficulties.

People need a calcium-magnesium ration of 10 to 4. Sugar causes the phosphorus and calcium levels to either decrease or increase. If one increases the other decreases and vice versa. Researchers have found that ingesting sugar increases the rate at which we excrete calcium. It pulls the calcium from our bones and tissues.

Minerals are essential to many bodily functions. They are important for bones and teeth, helping to maintain the correct acidity of the blood, have specific functions in the transmission of nerve impulse and others are important in the process of digestion.

b) So how to ensure good balance of sugar (glucose) in our body?

Exercise to burn fat. “Burning fat” or “fat-burning” means using stored fat as a fuel to support body function, whereas reducing total body fat (which is what most people desire when they say that they want to “lose weight”) involves burning more calories each day (whether from stored fat or stored glucose) than are replaced by calories consumed as food. In a large part, weight loss is achieved by meeting this goal, often with the assistance of exercises that burn fat and exercises that build muscle (because muscle cells burn more calories at rest than do fat cells).

c) What Is High Blood Sugar?

The blood glucose level is the amount of glucose in the blood. Glucose is a sugar that comes from the foods we eat, and it’s also formed and stored inside the body. It’s the main source of energy for the cells of our body, and it’s carried to each cell through the bloodstream.

d) Artificial sugar is needed for the diabetics.

The alternative to using a natural or refined sugar is to use a reduced calorie sweetener. There are five major reduced calorie sweeteners on the market today. These are Acesulfame Potassium (Acesulfame-K), Aspartame, Saccharin, Stevia, and Sucralose. Are these sweeteners really worth it? While there are many anecdotal reports of negative side effects, none of these have been confirmed through scientific investigation. In contrast, there is no anecdotal evidence whatsoever linking consumption of natural sugars such as fructose, honey, lactose, etc. with cancers, tumors, headaches, or other problems other than diabetes. Many diabetics use the glycemic index to control their food intake, and virtually many natural (unrefined) sugars fall within acceptable ranges for consumption based on those guidelines.

When a diabetic mother’s glucose level is high during pregnancy, the baby can receive too much glucose and grow too large, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. This baby was born by an Indonesian woman has given birth to an 8.7-kilogramme (19.2-pound) baby boy, the heaviest newborn ever recorded in the country, a doctor said Wednesday 23/9/2009.

Are the potential risks worth the small benefit you may or may not be receiving from artificial sweeteners? Learn to let sugar work with you, not against you!

Ex:30:34: And the LORD said unto Moses, Take sweet spices, stacte and onycha and galbanum, and pure frankincense with these sweet spices; there shall be equal amouts of each. You shall make of these an incense, a compund according to the art of the perfumer, salted, pure and holy.

As we can see here, sweet spices with pure frankincense are used for making incense and burn off. Laterally some people may say that this is representing burning off one’s faith? Not quite the right meaning. What it means is that all the offering burning has to be done with faith and this gives off the sweet Aroma to God. It is faith offerings.

Part 2 – Usefulness of Salt.

a) How Salt Became Sodium Chloride.

With the advent of industrial development, natural salt was “chemically cleaned” and reduced to the combination of sodium and chloride. Essential minerals and trace elements were removed as impurities. However, sodium chloride is an unnatural, isolated, unwholesome substance having nothing in common with salt. Similar to white, refined sugar, salt, once regarded as white gold, was converted into white poison. However, there is a higher reason for salt having been endowed with all the natural elements found in our bodies. Sodium chloride is an aggressive substance, which biochemically, is perpetually seeking an equalizing counterpart, so that the body’s pH can always remain neutral. Sodium chloride needs its natural counterpart in order for it to produce its effect. The natural counterparts, such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and other minerals and trace elements, demonstrate, from a biophysical standpoint, specific frequency patterns. These patterns ensure the geometric structures in our body. When these structures are missing, we are without energy and are lifeless. Salt should not be used just to add favor to our food, but for its vibration pattern, which is similar to our body! So Salt has a very vital function in our life but natural salt is even better for our health, let’s take a look at Himalayan Crystal Salt.

b) What is Himalayan Crystal Salt?

Himalayan Crystal Salt is more than sodium and chloride. Himalayan Crystal Salt can actually be viewed as food. When we speak of salt, we mean salt in its original form: holistic, wholesome, unaltered, natural salt, as it has crystallized in the Earth over millions of years. When we speak of  “table” salt that is sold in the supermarket, we refer to it as sodium chloride with additives, which is what it really is. Natural Himalayan crystal salt contains all the elements of which the human body is comprised. From the periodic table of elements we are familiar with 94 natural elements (stable as well as unstable). Apart from inert gases, all of these elements can be found in crystal salt. Hence, crystal salt contains all natural minerals and trace elements that are found in the human body. We perceive crystal salt as being the totality of all natural elements. So, we can see that it actually has life-generating power for the body and for our nervous system since it contains all the elements for our body.

c) Dr William H. Schuessler study and development of tissue salts.

The concept of Biochemic Salts, also known as tissue salts, were developed by Dr William H. Schuessler, a German physician, in the late 1800’s. He recognized that the twelve of the inorganic salts found in us have specific physiologic functions. He maintained that these tissue salts or “cell salts” are vital mineral constituents of the body. They combine with organic substances in the body to produce and maintain the infinite number of cells and tissues of which the human body is composed. Thus, any cell salt deficiency or imbalance may result in an illness and manifestations of a set of symptoms in body. Dr. Schuessler found that if the body was lacking in any of these salts, loss of health occurred. And if this deficiency was corrected with homeopathically (micro-doses) preparation of these salts, the body could in fact, heal itself.

Types of Tissue Salts and their Usefulness to Body System.

CALC FLUOR (Calcium Fluoride) elasticity, haemorrhoids & varicose veins
CALC PHOS (Calcium Phosphate) bone health & anaemia
CALC SULPH (Calcium Sulphate) blood cleaner & skin disorders
FERR PHOS (Ferrum Phosphate) inflammation, fevers, redness & throbbling
KALI MUR (Potassium Chloride) glandular tonic & congestion KALI PHOS (Potassium Phosphate) nerve nutrient & tonic
KALI SULPH (Potassium Sulphate) skin ailments & poor hair condition
MAG PHOS (Magnesium Phosphate) nerve & muscle relaxant
NAT MUR (Sodium Chloride ) water distributor & fluid balancer
NAT PHOS (Sodium Phosphate) acid neutralizer, acidity, indigestion & heartburn
NAT SULPH (Sodium Sulphate) water eliminator & liver tonic
SILICA (Silica ) cleanser & conditioner, hair, skin & nails

d) What are the adverse effect of having too much salt?

High sodium intake and blood pressure
The scientific literature linking sodium intake to blood pressure is extensive and dates back more than 100 years. Populations with a high average salt intake have a higher average blood pressure and higher levels of hypertension (high blood pressure). Australians consume more than double the amount of sodium that is recommended to prevent cardiovascular disease.

Reducing the amount of salt you have will lower high blood pressure – the extent depends on your age and blood pressure. People with high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease, and those who are older or overweight, are particularly susceptible to the effect of too much sodium on blood pressure. However, sodium reduction may not lower blood pressure in younger people with low or normal blood pressure.

High sodium intake and other health conditions
Excessive sodium intake has also been linked to other conditions, such as:

  1. Heart failure.
  2. Kidney problems and kidney stones.
  3. Oedema.
  4. Stroke.
  5. Gastric cancer.
  6. Left ventricular hypertrophy.
  7. Osteoporosis

A high level of salt intake increases the amount of calcium excreted in the urine, which may also contribute to osteoporosis and increased risk of fracture.

The balance of sodium and water in the body can also be disrupted if there is not enough water. This may be caused by a damaged thirst mechanism or by limited access to water. Hypernatremia is a very serious condition that occurs when your sodium levels rise above 145mEq/L. It can lead to death. A major symptom is thirst and treatment usually involves controlled water replacement.

e) Salt loss is rare but can be dangerous

The body loses salt through urine, perspiration, vomiting and diarrhoea. If too much salt is lost, the level of fluid in the blood will drop. Hyponatremia is a condition that occurs when the sodium in your blood falls below the normal range of 135-145 milliequivalents per litre (mEq/L). In severe cases, low sodium levels in the body can lead to muscle cramps, nausea, vomiting and dizziness. Eventually lack of salt can lead to shock, coma and death.

Severe salt loss is very unlikely to happen because our diets contain more than enough salt. The only time this is likely to occur is when someone has acute gastroenteritis (causing vomiting and diarrhoea), severe sweating or water intoxication (from drinking too much water).

Part 3 – Biblical message use of Salt and its meaning.

a) Salt is being used purification.

 

In many cultures, including Japan, salt is used for purification. Sumo wrestlers throw salt in the ring before a match to purify the ring.

In Japan, salt in a pouch is distributed to participants of a funeral. After the funeral, when the participants come back and enter their houses, they have to be sprinkled on themselves with the salt for purification.

Exodus 30:35 “Using the usual techniques of the incense maker, blend the spices together and sprinkle them with salt to produce a pure and holy incense.”

You are like the pure and holy incense after being purified by THE SALT. Every work you do (symbolized by burning incense), will gives out the sweet aroma that is pleasing to God.

Matthew 5:13, Jesus tells his disciples, “You are the salt of the earth”

Go spread the Gospel, so that people can be pure again in the eyes of God. Your spoken words to people must be salted.

b) Salt is being used for preserving goodness.

During Chinese new year, we enjoyed the delicacy of preserved duck and all the other salted products such as salted eggs, vegetables and fish. It is amazing that the goodness of this natural produce is being preserved by the use of Salt.

Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female, He created them.”

Genesis 1:30 “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.”

Then Adam and Eve fall, they had sinned because they had eaten the forbidden fruits. Lord Jesus is our savior. He died for our sin with his blood. His blood is the purifying Salt that not only preserve our goodness with God but also being baptized, he gave us the Helper, our Holy Spirit who would help us not only to built and preserve our own goodness but also be a facilitator (intercede) for THE SALT.

Matthew 5:13, Jesus tells his disciples, “You are the salt of the earth”

Your goodness in you will be felt by people around you. Be a good example and your goodness to people around you is a good testimony for Lord Jesus. Your blessed abundant of goodness from Kingdom of Heaven shall spread to your neighbors like endless stream of spring water even in famine time.

c) Salt is being used for healing purpose.

We already learned the usefulness Himalayan Crystal Salt and Types of Tissue Salts. The other use is crystal salt lamp. According to research, salt crystals emit a neutralizing vibration of around 8Hz frequencies into their immediate environment. So putting a salt crystal lamp next to a high frequency electronic device will bring harmful EMFs into resonance. When the salt crystal lamp becomes warm, it generates healthy negative ions. Through the lamp, the positively charged atmosphere of a room can be neutralized, improving the quality of air we breathe in.

In addition to this, the colours of the salt crystal stones have a healing effect. The therapeutic value of the coloured crystals can reorganize the epidermal layer of our skin. Nevertheless these lamps are often sold as Himalayan Salt Lamp and with claims of their health-promoting properties, have not been substantiated and are generally regarded as pseudoscience.

Pseudoscience is a methodology, belief, or practice that is claimed to be scientific, or that is made to appear to be scientific, but which does not adhere to an appropriate scientific methodology, lacks supporting evidence or plausibility, or otherwise lacks scientific status.

Whenever I had ulcer on my lip, I would rub salt on it till bleed and it is healed. This is one healing ability of salt that don’t need scientific proof, my grandmother methods still work. Also, rubbing salt on meat kills bacterial and germs.

Matthew 5:13, Jesus tells his disciples, “You are the salt of the earth”

Luke 9:6 “So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.”

People with grace of God (wisdom) can bring out healing to someone but the unwise will say things that can hurt someone.
Proverbs 12:18 “Some people make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise bring healing.”
Mark 9:50 “Salt is good, but if the salt have loses his its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.”
What does this message mean exactly? I would have to use one very prominent example.

The Church had mentioned many times “If one of the member of the family is saved, the whole family will be saved.”
It is Biblical and it is true, many senior in Church had their whole family saved (but not all).

These spoken words were being flavor with salt but allow me to show you 2 scenerios on what actually happened on floor area, it probably would be a shocking revelations for some.

Scenerio A

Christian A, saying to a new Christian, “Great, I am glad that you are here today again. Praise the Lord. So is your family member saved?’
New Christian “Not yet, I am the only Christian in my family.”
Christian A, “It is okay, continue to be in good faith and in constant prayer. I believe strongly that if one member of the family is saved, the whole family will be saved. It takes time, be patience. I would like to see you again next week.”

Scenerio B

Christian B, saying to a new Christian, “Great, I am glad that you are here today again. Praise the Lord. So is your family member saved?’
New Christian “Not yet, I am the only Christian in my family.”
Christian B, “Cannot be! The Church mentioned many times that whenever a family member is saved, the whole family will be saved. Maybe you had not pray hard enough. Okay, hope to see you next week and make sure you bring your family along.”

Christian A had used the words with God’s grace; flavor with salt. The new Christian is being encouraged.

Christian B is prejudice and judgemental and in his or her commment. Do you think that the new Christian will come back? Have we not learned already that God will not forced his will onto anyone? So if the new Christian’s family is not saved, it does not mean that he or she have no faith. In fact, the many Christian has stronger faith then these group of judgemental Christian. (I call them Whitewash Wall Christian). They had make the wisdom words “If one member of the family is saved, the whole family will be save” LOST ITS SALTED FLAVOR!
I like Pastor Kong Hee BS on the Song of Solomon. Especially the part on the different between immatured Christian and matured Christian. I had personally encountered this before. I once said to a Christian brother, “Our Lord Jesus had caused my wife to dream that she was at the seaside and she saw the sea washed ashore with waves of foaming dirty blood. I found the answer in the book by Choo Thomas, Heaven is so Real. The dirty blood is from Lord Jesus’ die on the Cross for many people’s sins.” Then the Christian could only said “You must continue to pray.” This is so childish, so immatured. He talked as though that I have lack in prayer or I don’t pray. This is not the first time he said the same thing to me. I came to know from the word of knowledge “that this Christian, is not a Action man, he only prays” and we all know, Christian who pray but do no works is not doing the will of God. Heard the saying “Talk is Cheap!” A matured Christian knows how to immerse himself in the realm of the Holy Spirit, and they know what appropriate salted words to use (most likely, the matured Christian had already received Words of knowledge from our Holy Spirit). Example, he may said “That is great. I am sure this revelations tells that your wife and family will be saved. I also have a vision…etc” You see, this is exalting one another by sharing of the “hidden mannas from Kingdom of heaven.”.

Part 4 – Conclusion.

Lord Jesus has the Wisdom of God because he is God. Without scientific knowledge he already knew the appropriateness of using Salt as the element required of a believer. Thus the symbolic meaning and revelation is as follows:-

Sugar – Is more for the flesh and blood, it is for energy and for the body enjoyment. Actually, when sugar is first exposed to fire, it forms caramel. Caramel itself is used in the production of ice cream and candies. People who loves sweet. LOlz 🙂 Have to watch your diet, you don’t want to become obese or diabetics. (contributed by Jefri Sanusi Teguh)

Salt – As we had already learned, helps us to be Healing, purified, and preservation of goodness in us . No one is perfect only once upon baptism by the Holy Spirit. So this is a continue process, Healing ==>Purification ==> Preservation  and continue and continue till we reach perfection on the day of Lord Jesus’ second comming. We want to be the Bribe in the Wedding Feast or be the guests who worn right garment (still doing the will of God).

So putting the whole thing together. “You are the Salt of the earth” and every seasoned words (with salt) that you spoke is like honey. “Your lips, O my spouse, drip as he honeycomb; Honey and milk are under your tongue; And the fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon.” Song of Solomon 4″11

 Chapter 2 – Darkness and Light

To discuss on this topic of “why not darkness”, I think appropriately, I should ask “Is there any goodness that can be brought out of darkness?”

Let’s study the beginning passage of the Bible, Genesis 1:2-5 “The earth was without form and void, and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.” So it was, after God bring in light to the earth, we have day and the darkness is being called night.
Let us study another Bible passage Joshua 10:12-13 “Sun, stand still over Gibeon; And Moon , in the valley of Aijalon. So the sun stood still. And the moon stopped. Till the people had revenge upon their enemies.”

Therefore, if the without the Sun stood still, people of Israel would had been defeated by the enermies in darkness.
Thus, this is the symbolic meaning of the Spiritual warfare of every Christian, without the Light in us we will be defeated by the enermies, who lurks in darkness.
Moreover, darkness is universally understood to be associated with evil forces and also most crippy creatures would come out in the midst of the darkness such as snake, rat, owl, foxes etc to kill and rob their prey of their life.
Even thief would normally come in the darkness to rob people. Lord Jesus did come in the darkness as a thief? Read Rev 16:15 “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” Some Christian do not understand this passage. “The Garments” represent the righteous things you ought to do in accordance with the will of God. “Watches and keeps his garments” means you continue to watch and focus on doing the will of God. “Lord Jesus will come as thief in at night” (thief always come in the cover of darkness) means while you are sleeping on the job (means not doing the right things with God), your garments will be removed without you knowing and you will walk naked and people will see you ashamed. It is really funny, some Christian had already been exposed by Lord Jesus (through the words of Knowledge and Wisdom) and yet they do not know that they are walking around NAKED!
So is it bad that Lord Jesus came in the cover of darkness to remove people’s garment without them knowing? Understand the symbolic meaning, my friend. At least, the person who came to realised that he or she was uncovered and in nakeness knows and will seek for forgiveness and repent, which is good. In another words, those who continue to wear false Garments (doing work and claimed to be God’s will) will died (spiritually first).
Similar meaning, (Sincere thanks to Pastor Kong Hee for his teaching of Song of Solomon) Isaiah 50:10-11 “Who among you fears the LORD? Who obeys the voice of His Servant? Who walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the LORD and rely upon his God. Look, all you who kindle a fire. Who encircle yourselves with sparks: walk in the light of your fire and the sparks you have kindled – This you shall have from My hand, you shall lie down in torment.”

Let’s take a look at a picture that I had done for one article, you can read by clicking Virtue versus acting innocent.
It has been said, “Picture paints a thousand words.”

You are strongly encouraged to read the above article. Are you chasing after Fame, Money, Power (Authority) or even be seduced by the carrots that were frequently given by the Prostitute and be lured deeper into darkness?

Babylon world past and now

Are you the in-between person, neither in the light nor in darkness but in fact is living in the blurry darkness without knowing. These in-between people have lukewarm relationship with God that after so many years of being a Christian, they do not have dream nor vision and do not know the will of God for them.
God do not like people who are lukewarm! Rev 3:16 “So then, because you are lukewarm, that you are neither cold nor hot. I will vomit you out of My mouth.” This passage means, people who are lukewarm will be throw out of Kingdom of Heaven. Some people may not understand this. What do you mean that being vomited is being thrown out of Heaven?
Take a look at John 15:4 “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.”
So the word ME means Kingdom of Heaven. If you receive Kingdom of heaven humble as child then the Holy spirit will abide in you and you shall have your forehead stamped with the Seal of God. People who are ambivalent minded too will be vomited out. It is the attitude towards God, especially with regard to messages spoken by people. How can one stay lukewarm? Neither accept it nor reject it? In the eyes of God, he is looking at things from one extreme to another extreme. You just can’t limit God nor contain God by trying to negotiate knowingly or unknowingly to give YOURSELF the flexiblility to do things, the way YOU wanted to be done. Is there God in your heart to take full control of your life, willingly?

This picture below is being reproduced from the sermon by Pastor Kong Hee during the Asia Conference 2008.

Lord Jesus said Matthew 5:13 “You are the light of the world.”

The word “world” means “the Cosmos”, the fallen world that we are living in. We must be “the light” that can shine in any dark place, penetrating even the darkness corner. So “You are the light of the world.” means that you must be able to stand up for the glory of Lord Jesus and people can see visibly by the action and things you speak that has “light” in the darkness. You are not conforming to the activities of the darkness but bring “light” to darkness. You may want to read this article. Asia Conference 2008.

Summary.
Matthew 5:13-16, Jesus tells his disciples, “You are the salt of the earth” and “You are the light of the world.”

The word “earth” and “world.” means different things. “Earth”, as we already learned that man is being created from earth, it is talking about individual. So the meaning of “You are the salt of the earth” is that you must be a purified, preserved with goodness and already been healed true believer so that whatever you do or say is always seasoned by “THE SALT”. You must be of “Good taste” to many people. “World” means the “Cosmos” and you must be already been “Salted” or insulated. i.e. you are walking light as a beacon in the dark sea where everyone can see. You progress from the “1st space”, gone into the “2nd Space” and finally “the 3rd Space” where you will meet important people by invitation. Hallelujah. Praise the Lord.

Now we fully understand, “Why sugar and darkness is not used as an element in Christian life.”

Rapture is happening

As I look at the signs and wonders that is happening in the world today, it is telling me very strongly that many prophesied events had happened and came to past. There are many strange happenings even in Singapore; young healthy people jogging fell and died suddenly and the doctors could not explain nor find out the cause of death “they died mysteriously!” If someone can gather the number of cases per year, I think this year 2009 is having the peak of such activities. Even V.Ho had said that one of her friend too suffer the sudden death without known cause.

There are many written articles, books and preaching about rapture. Each has their own way of understanding rapture, by the revelation of the Holy Spirit or by their own intelligent interpretation.

NO ONE can really tell when the Son of Man will come.

Matt 24:27

“For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.”

And our Lord Jesus will come very quickly as flashes of the lightning. So are you prepared for HIS arrival? Are you already properly dressed up to meet the bridegroom?

I DO NOT disbelieve nor have doubts on authors or writer who had published about rapture, because Lord Jesus had said that all sins will be forgiven but if blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven unless …. one turn around, confess his sin and ask for deliverance.

Matthew 12:31

“Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.”

I once said to a lady (our sister) in a afternoon coffee meeting at Sembawang S.C., “All of us who are being baptised by the Holy Spirit have certain Bible understanding in our own depth, and yet it is the same Holy Spirit who gives each and all of us the understanding and interpretaion of Bible and events so that we can fellowship and learn from one another. It is through revelations of our Holy Spirit that we received Hidden Manas from Heaven.”

As I meditate deeply onto the event of sudden death of certain people without any known cause of these death, I begin think that somehow the mistery of these deaths could be related to rapture as mentioned in the bible. Let’s take a look into the Bible for revelations.

Matt 24:40-41 “Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two woman will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left.”

Intepretation of this message, if lateral meaning; it would means that only 50% of the people will be rapture while the other 50% will be left behind. This is definitely not right because our Lord Jesus being gracious would want to have as many people redeemed to the Kingdom of Heaven as possible. What is being reviewed to me is that ALL people will be raptured and Lord Jesus will meet all in the mid-air in the cloud and judgement will be passed. Those whose name are not in the book of life (had not received salvation) will be cast down into outer darkness and there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, while those who are saved will be with the Lord forever. Try to understand the message in Matt 22:1-14″The marriage of the King’s son.”

Let’s look at the Bible passage again Matt 24:40-41 “Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two woman will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left.” Now we getting a clearer picture, when God look at a person walking on earth doing his things, he see it as 2 person, one is the body and flesh while the other is the soul (having the spirit man within). So when there is a rapture, the spirit man together with the soul (the transformed body as many had said) will be lifted up to meet Lord Jesus in the cloud, while the flesh and blood will be left behind, because flesh and blood is not holy and cannot enter the Kingdom of God.

Addon notes 26/2/2010

What happened to those who are being raptured? What about those people who had not heard about the Gospel, nor fully understand? Will Lord Jesus gave Good people second chance? He does, even today, Lord Jesus have been going down to the lowest pit and break those jail houses and preached the Gospel to them. Those who being raptured or sent to “the jailhouse” in the pit would be given the chance to receive the gift of life if they would believe Jesus as sovereign Lord and Saviour. But those who are already been sent over there could not reverse their decision because there is a “Gulf Fixed”. By writing this, I risked being judged and persecuted. Anyway, who has the right and wisdom to question God’s decision? Many theologians (I too was one of them) would be very intense in their argument; disagreeing and enforcing what they had learned in the academic class. They will try to play judge; making verbal decision on “who has the right to go to Heaven”. Saul was like that, didn’t he? Then Lord Jesus spoke to him “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” Acts 9:4 I think these people is out of their mind! Here is the Biblical truth:-

Matt 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me,’Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.”

Matt 4:4 “If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread. But Jesus replied, It is writtened, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.‘”

It is crystal clear, “the Bread” always represents the living Words of God, The Bible, but the “every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” is the Rhema words. How many of us actually speak out the Rhema words received from God? I refused when my 3rd Sister was redeemed into Heaven but later I repented after being rebuked by our Lord Jesus through Rev Robb Thompson.

1 Cor 15:50

“Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.”

Here is the exact discription of a rapture process”

1 Thess 4:17 “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

Let’s take a look at Revelation 8:1-13, The Seventh Seal and Four trumpets. It is mentioned repetitively a third of everything will be distroyed. See the figure mentioned a third. If the passage Matt 24:40-41 is talking about 50% of rapture, it doesn’t match the book of revelations where it constantly mentioned about one third of many things. Let’s examine on the verse:-

Revelation 8:12 “Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.

So, Rapture preachers has been saying about “the great fallout when the antichrist arrived” This message as I intepreted is talking about the great fallout. All Christians who are saved have light, thus the Sun, the Moon and the stars are symbolic meaning of Christian but one third of them will be darkened because they fallout from their faith in Lord Jesus, they loose their light completely.

Now, the final conclusion to the Rapture.

Matt 24:28 “For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.”

This is talking about the dead bodies that were being left behind after people are being raptured. Sounds familiar, isn’t it? The answer to the mysterious death in Singapore where doctors can’t diagnose the cause. Shocking isn’t it? And Prophets who had came to preached, had already prophesied that Singapore will be the focal point for great revival and signs and wonders had already show up. The worst tragedy is that non-believers can see the invisible hands of God moving in Singapore and yet many believers are not seeing it, where the Second coming of Christ will be, the antichrist will be also.

My Friends, the end time, the second coming of Lord Jesus is not far away! Are you ready for him? Are you the perfect bride for him?

The wedding feast, Bride, Bridegroom and guests fully explained.

I was really stunt after reading this message by Linda Newkirk on 1st February 2009. Even Choo Thomas was also stunt by the accuracy of this message. For me, this message by Linda came onto me like a special anointing oil, a true blessed confirmation of the correct interpretation of the wedding feast with the help of our Holy Spirit. I published about this wedding feast after having caught the Gift of Wisdom knowledge on 19th June 2008. Notice that Linda’s message is almost 6 months later. While Church has been preaching and emphasizing that “the Bride” being intrepreted as “the Church”; our Holy Spirit helped me interprete the other meaning of “the Bride” as individual Christian, some 20 years ago. Actually, if we understand that our Holy Spirit dwelled in us, it also means that our body is the “Church or Temple of God.” Read this by clicking. A fool and his wisdom is soon parted. Published in Esharingportal.com on 19th June 2008 Glory to Our Lord Jesus.

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.

* Please note that we (ChooThomas.com) do not endorse all of Linda Newkirk’s claims or prophecies, but just this message, so that our Lord Jesus “might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that it should be holy and without blemish.” (Ephesians 5: 27)

jesus_bride

Will you marry me, Jesus? I may not be pretty but I am cleaned. John 3:29 (NLT) “It is the bridegroom who marries the bride, and the best man is simply glad to stand with him and hear his vows. Therefore, I am filled with joy at his success.”

Here is a parable message about how one can be a real good Bride of Christ by having the Wisdom of God.

Matt 25:1-13

The Parable of the Ten Virgins

“At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him! Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ ‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut. Later the others also came. ‘Sir! Sir!’ they said. ‘Open the door for us!’ But he replied, ‘I tell you the truth, I don’t know you.’ Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.”

Some author interpret “The 5 virgins as the Church” It is correct to say that “the 5 virgins” represents the individual.

1 Corinthians 3:16

“Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”

In the old testament, the place of worship is called the temple of God. Now we call the Church. So, the individual who are baptized by the Holy Spirit is the Church(temple) for the Holy Spirit. The Oil represents the Holy Spirit anointment.

Thus the message is very clear, those who are baptized by the Holy Spirit (disciple Christian) will have God’s Wisdom and they will be meet the bridegroom and stay with him forever because they are prepared, while those who aren’t baptised by the Holy Spirit, born of the flesh (Academic Christian), in God’s eyes are foolish because they do not have God’s Wisdom. The Symbolic meaning of virgin is one who is pure and righteous but not necessary holy in the eyes of God unless one is being baptised by the Holy Spirit.

Addon notes 5/6/2010

Wonderful feeling of Rapture.

One day, (18/5/2010) as I was walking towards Chinatown MRT during lunch hour, alone, I knew I wasn’t alone our Holy Spirit is within me. Then I remembered for the past days, the Daily Bread I posted is about rapture. Then I said to Father Jesus “I wondered what it is going to be like when… rapture.” Then I looked up towards the sky, it was beautiful clear sky with cottons of cloud (three of them looked like trinity) and sea of blue behind as background. Then I said again “I wondered what it is going to be like when rapture.” Then my lunch partner (our Holy Spirit) spoke to me “Feel.” I looked upward towards the sky, and then suddenly I felt as though I was being rocket up towards the clouds that were amazingly beautiful. I felt the rush of air flowing past my body, adhering to my clothing due to high speed. It is very soothing and cooling. Then a voice spoke to me “Don’t look back.” I could smell the freshness of the cool atmosphere as I got nearer to the clouds. Then I said to father Jesus “No, Lord Jesus, I not going to be rapture just like that, there are so many works I had to do, writing books with testimonies of what you had done for me and many things my Helper, the Holy Spirit had guided and inspired to do and many people, especially my family were not saved yet.” It happened just little while, I think half a second. And I was on firm ground. I proceeded for my lunch, smiling happily as I walked. The feeling was beyond my imagination; the peace and tranquillity. Then, there was this groaning within me, up even until now, that I must write this as a reminder to ALL, in the same way as what Lord Jesus had warned his disciples when he was on earth more than 2,000 years ago.

“Remember Lot’s wife.” Luke 17:32

I think many knew this story of how the selfish man Lot ran for his own life without care for who was behind him. “But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.” Genesis 19:26

Well, Lot did one thing right, obeyed the LORD, NOT TO LOOK back and he lived but unfortunately he continued in his selfish way thereafter. Here is the scary revelations Jesus would had asked every living being on why he had warned everyone, especially in the Book of Revelations.

“Will you look back when you’re raptured?” That is a very simple question. If while being raptured and you looked back at everything, your beautiful home, your beautiful car, big money making businesses, your career, your possession, money and your family. Sad to say, the Son of Man will meet you on the cloud and said “Your name is NOT in the book of life, because your love on worldliness is greater then me, I never knew you, depart from me.” Supporting Biblical statement?

I am sure everyone knew the story of how Peter sunk when he lost focus on Lord Jesus when he walked on the water. Matt 14:20 “And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”

Love for God, our Lord Jesus must be so extreme that everything else when put side by side with Him would became a hatred, your perfection becomes imperfections.

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.”

Also look at the story of the rich young man. Luke 16:19 “There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day.”

And this very strong statement that many would try to avoid reading it:-

“Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but divisions; 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.” Luke 12:51-53 “a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household” (Matt 10:36)

Many Christians procrastinated in building their spiritual life because they could not serve Kingdom of God more then family, the family tied up, many gave this as an excuse for not serving the KOG. Here is the truth, if you serve Kingdom of God more, many things including finances would be added unto you and your ‘love’ will be so abundant that it not multiplies for your family lifestyle improvement but it also flows to your neighbours. Conclusion:-

Is your heart (soul) prepared for the rapture, will you look back on the way up?

Lord Jesus said “”Remember Lot’s wife.” Praise the Lord for His revelations.

Please do not take this as alternative to Bible study. Let one who walk with Holy Spirit and with wisdom from God understand the Bible passage according to HIS will.

Legalism versus Love

This is a true event happened mid last year. The name of person and date is being purposely removed so as not to pinpoint to the person involved. I am not sure if the person mentioned had completely turned around. Anyway, it is writtened in the bible “Before entering the Tabernacles, if one drunk wine prior, then he will be turned into clay monument in the city so that everyone will learn from this.” What this message meant is that in order for a person to enter the Holy Ground (temple of God), he or she must refrain from enjoying sinful worldliness (the wine) or face the death (turned into monument). You can see this same senerio in the story of Lot’s wife, where she was being turned in a pillar of salt when she looked back at the 2 evil cities, Sodom and Gomorrah.

I wondered how would Simon Peter would had felt if he had known that he was being make a monument by our Lord Jesus a couple of times. eg when he said that he loved Lord Jesus more than anyone else. I am still trying to figure out for myself what are my monuments? Maybe back slide from being a Christian can be one of my monument and I wasn’t ashamed to share it in my testimony so that all shall learn from it and it also act as a reminder for me not to back slide again. I don’t know, I woke up at 4 am this morning and moved to write this article. Hope this trumpet (was this the last?) will help certain group of people to turn around.

Dr. A.R. Bernard mentioned during the Asia Conference 2008 “All things are make to happen by god sequentially. As long as benefits outweight consequences, god will make it happen. And what is sad is that non believers is able to see and recognise the invisible hand of god doing these miracle while many believers don’t see it!”

Here is the true account of an incident which was make to happen by god, our Lord Jesus on one Saturday afternoon, about 4.30pm. I was driving my 2 sons on East Coast Parkway (ECP) to drop them at Suntec City so that they can join my brother-in-law for dinner. It was raining quite heavily as I was approaching the slip road to Rochor. One lorry, and followed by 2 cars went passed the slip road into Rochor Road link infront of me. Then suddenly, I saw a black object raised from the ground and I could not stopped in time or sway to avoid it. Then, both my right front and back tyres rode above this unknown object with double loud “BANG” and jerked. Luckily, I was able to remain calm to control the car; would have been disastrous if I jammed my brakes as the road was wet and slippery. So I move on towards Suntec City and I felt that the tyres was flat, and I heard wobbling sound. So, I turned into the first bus bay at Suntec City. To my horror, both the right side tyres had been puntured. Never in my life do I get 2 tyres punctured at the same time. I prayed and thanks god that he had protected me and my 2 boys from worst accident. I gave my 2 sons money so that they could go to Raffles City themselve on MRT. I examined the wheels, both sport rims were dented in at the outer skirt and both tyres had a deep cut. Then I called a tow truck and my car was towed to Autobac and the rims together with tyres replacement cost me S$815. I was telling my wife, that the dinner which my 2 sons went cost me S$815 🙂 I decided to email this incident as a testimony to share with our church members. Now I know, this incident was make to happen for one of the other purpose, that is; to help someone or certain people to turn around. It cost me S$815 but I am more then gladful that nothing worst had happened, I further discovered that the front brake pads had worn out. And this money spent is nothing if the incident can help someone or people turn around. Praise the Lord for his love and care!

Note: Those commentaries in the Red box is not part of the SMS text

Cetainly the person takes lots of trouble to send the SMS to me (could have done via email but why SMS?). I had written an article “Which face you want to show.” in Esharingportal.com

Maybe if he had read it, probably by grace of god, he may not had behaved this way.

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.”

Read “Which face you want to show.”

My heartest thanks to the church sermon about “Right attitude of Christian”

Let’s us study about a legalistic person and see what’s wrong with it.

Character of a legalistic person:-

1. He or She usually run his group of people under system with certain written and unwritten rules. Read Whitewash wall Christian.

2. He or she enjoy controlling people, they like to see them giving them absolute control. Sometimes sadistically likes to scold them to the stage of bursting into tears.

3. He or she is very quick in getting angry over certain things not done in accordance to their rules.

4. He or she would not hesistate to punish members who broke their written and unwritten rules.

5. He or she does practice giving out unequal love and care to members. (Jesus’s love is equal to all)

6. He or she find discomfort when members want to get familiar with them because they are very status conscious, they are very worry that people may brings contempt.

….. and the list can go on and on.

Conclusion, a legalistic person does not bear the fruit of the holy spirit but is someone who is humanistic as the character shows (those underlined) Disclosed by Rev. Ed Silvoso 8-9 Nov 2008, Humanistic control.

People may think that I am very petty about things but it is a real priviledge to have people pointing out the errors one committed. I had already mentioned in the begining of this notes that, this message is being posted here so that not only it could be used as a monument as a reminder for me and also as a teaching tool so that none of us should fall into the trap of lust for humanistic control. It is good that if you have God sent angels pointing out mistakes to you then to have Lord Jesus questioning you in detail when your time has run out. Don’t prophets points out sins and wrong doings to Apparent Authority, the King?

We may think that our Lord Jesus had forgotten all sins as we confessed them but the matter of fact is he will forgive but he also wants you to rectify whenever possible by letting our Holy Spirit convict you times and times again. Below is the testimony of Victoria who was brought to Hell by Lord Jesus, and study carefully with regard to loan repayment; Lord Jesus is very detail in his questioning, please note that this is a testimony. It should not be imposed as a must believe but would be good for individual to know the consequeces of refusal to obey :-

I was then led to the next group, and the man (Jesus) told me that the people in the second group were those who had debts. There were three different categories in that group. The first category was of people who owed to others: they could afford to pay their dues but they kept postponing and procrastinating. They would claim that they would pay tomorrow, next week, next year, until the time ran out for them and now they had found themselves in this place. This is where they will stay forever; they are eating the fruits of their labor.

The second category was of those who had debts that they could afford to pay back and they were willing to pay their debts, but they were afraid of the consequences because, perhaps, if they told the truth they might suffer rejection or they might go to jail or what they had done would be made known to the whole world and they would be humiliated. The man said: “None of them came to me to ask me for a way. If they had done so, I would have shown them the easy way out. They used their own wisdom and reasoning which did not help them in any way. Their time ran out and they found themselves in this place where they will be for ever. They are eating the fruit of their labor.”

Then He said: “The third category had debts which they could not afford to pay back, but, again, none of them had told me that they had debts they were unable to pay. If they had done so, I would have paid their debts. They also tried to use their own reasoning and wisdom, which did not help them in any way. Now they have found themselves in this place where they will always be. They are eating the fruit of their labor. My heart is aching for all these people because I love them dearly.”

Dave Hunt writes:
“We may rest assured that no one will suffer in hell who could by any means have been won to Christ in this life. God leaves no stone unturned to rescue all who would respond to the convicting and wooing of the Holy Spirit.”

The opposite is also true, the Devil will also want to leaves no stone unturned, to discover and kill all these foundation stones of God.
Matt 2:7-8 “Herod then arranged a secret meeting with the scholars from the East. Pretending to be as devout as they were, he got them to tell him exactly when the birth-announcement star appeared. Then he told them the prophecy about Bethlehem, and said, “Go find this child. Leave no stone unturned. As soon as you find him, send word and I’ll join you at once in your worship.”

Slowly, the devil will plant weeds in people’s mind so that they will be confused and teaches doctrine that is contrary to THE TRUTH.

Matt 13:24 “He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. And the servants of the master of the house came and said to him, “Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds?” He said to them, “An enemy has done this.”

Although this whole parable is talking about Kingdom of Heaven having true and false believers and the judgement day (the Harvest) the tares will be bind and thrown into final fire, the other meaning (revealed to me) is that while men are sleeping (not in spirit, not in prayer) the Devil will plant wrong thoughts or doctrines (the weeds) into a believers’ mind.
That is the reason why Lord Jesus had said to his disciples Matt 26:40-41 “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Praise the Lord for His divine revelations.

Understanding Bible passage should be from Revelations by our Holy Spirit

break through
God give us stream of living water. From these living water,
it gives you healthy tree of knowledge that
grow and grow. Multiplying branches after branches.

Woke up early in the morning. Still think about how one should be very careful when using Bible quotes to support a personal understanding. Many times when we are interpreting certain passage in bible, we use our logical thinking to interprete bible because it is written in plain Engish. This is where we are most venerable to the lies and mislead by the Shadow of darkness. Satan is capable of putting thoughts when we are in complete obedience to our flesh (our intelligent), and bible passage can be interprete wrongly. The devil may put pride in a person “This new knowledge you gain is very important, you must preach to many people and they will praise you and you will gain fame by being able to give them deeper understanding.” The Shadow of Darkness is the spirit of seducing and distracts. Our Holy Spirit inspired the Author to accurately record the events in Bible and also for those who translated them into English. Likewise, we have to guard your soul. Complacency; which is an element of pride, only leave opening for the shadow of darkness to come in and influence. Let the understanding of bible be by revelations from our Holy Spirit (which is of Wisdom from God), in this way we are in union with God’s given message, 100% accuracy.
Book of Ecclesiastes writtened by King Solomon. Eccl 3. Everything has its time. Verse 7-8
“A time to tear, And a time to sew.
A time to keep silence, A time to speak.
A time to love, A time to hate;
A time of war, And a time of peace.”

These are the words from King Solomon who had immense wisdom from God Almighty and he proclaimed everything is VANITY!
“Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but divisions; 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.” Lk 12:51-53 “a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household” (Matt 10:36)
This same message is being preached by: Dr. Peter Wagner 16-17 Aug 2008, Rev. Dr. Phil Pringle 27 March 2009
Is our Holy Spirit telling us something? Isn’t Lord Jesus; prince of Peace and yet he talked about war, division and own family member is a man’s enemies? God do not like people who are lukewarm. Rev 3:16 “So then, because you are lukewarm, that you are neither cold nor hot. I will vomit you out of My mouth.” This passage means, people who are lukewarm will be throw out of Kingdom of Heaven. Some people may not understand this. What do you mean that being vomited is being thrown out of Heaven? Take a look at John 15:4 “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.” So the word ME means Kingdom of Heaven. If you receive Kingdom of heaven humble as child then the Holy spirit will abide in you and you shall have your forehead stamped with the Seal of God. People who are ambivalent minded too will be vomited out. It is the attitude towards God, especially with regard to messages spoken by people. How can one stay lukewarm? Neither accept it nor reject it? When we are given the knowledge that there is NO HELL but only Hades. (Latest news: I was told by someone who had attended BS that he was taught that Hell is empty, so it is The Woman giving wrong doctrine.) Words of Knowledge came upon me “Many authors will be discredited” I am already so used to being pushed by our Holy Spirit to do something that I quickly sent an urgent email to many, hopefully to rectify. In the eyes of God, he is looking at things from one extreme to another extreme. You just can’t limit God nor contain God by trying to negotiate unknowingly to give youself flexiblility to do things, the way you wanted to be done. Is there God in your heart to take full control of your life, willingly?
If there is hate, the other end, there is love.
If there is war, the other end, there is peace.
If there is death,the other end, there is life.
If there is Hell, the other end, there is Heaven.
If one don’t believe that there is existence of Hell, then might as well don’t believe there is Heaven.
Bible passage warned many times about the danger of entering Hell if one died without having received salvation (time has run out on the person). And many many books have been writtened about Hell.
I read a book, I borrowed from my Sister Laura by Mary K. Baxton. “A divine Revelation of Hell.” I had already read Choo Thomas’s book “Heaven is so Real” too. Both of them has been brought to Hell by our loving Lord Jesus. Both said the same thing. Lord Jesus still loved those people who are currently suffering in Hell, he was sorrowful and sobbed quietly when accompanied them to Hell.
And why must our Lord Jesus have to do that? He is already siting on the right hand side of the throne in Heaven comfortably, there is no need for him to bring people to witness the terrible place, Hell. He patiently explained to those whom he brought there “I want you to record down all the things you had seen in Hell, so that people will know that there is this place call Hell. I don’t want anyone to come here to suffer. All are given a chance to receive salvation, but all these people had ended up here because time has run out on them. They died.”
Be careful, our flesh are weak. Without the Holy Spirit guiding us, the spirit of seducer (shadow of darkness) will mislead us into interpreting bible wrongly.
When the rich man look up and saw Lazarus in Abraham’s bosom, it does not mean that immediately upstair there is a place call bosom (Bosom means chest or part of garment that covers the chest in dictionary). God is the creator of Universe. Is it not possible for him to cause the rich man who is in Hell to see this vision of Abraham in Heaven with Lazarus? Even God make the Sun stood still so that Isreal can win the war Joshua 10:13″So the sun stood still, And the moon stopped, Till the people had revenge upon their enemies.”
Then I’ll have to say that the “‘Lake of fire” is the FINAL HELL. If there is Cold, there is Hot too. Then there is in between called Lukewarm. So there is Hell, there is also Heaven and there is a in between place of Hades, the place of temporary holding place for the dead who are not yet decided on going to Hell or to come back to life, pending decision by God? Place of Hades, we agreed on the same understanding. It is universal understanding. Chinese believe that place Hades is between the surface of earth and below earth surface. So that’s why in chinese believe (I am chinese too), the “lost” souls are wondering on earth and there are people who are on the verge of death saw Hades came and dragged them into grave, shoel and be lost forever into hell to accompany with Satan in Hell (for those who didn’t receive salvation).
Is there no rectification for wrong situation? Yes, Lord Jesus can forgive all our sins, but we take things for granted and likes to swept things under the carpet as though nothing have happened. It is not for anyone to judge but all of us are accountable for our action. While we are still alive, we still have time, Lord Jesus though forgive our sins and wrong doing, like wrong teaching. He wants us to have fellowship with our neighbouring brothers and sister, make good what is bad and renew relationship that had turned sour. 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.” He wants us to use our Holy Spirit to helps us bring our things from our “Secret room” (the dangerous, sub-concious self) and offered to the altar as burning sacrifice. So that HE can teach us what to do with regards to all those THINGS FROM OUR SECRET ROOM. Rev 7:3 “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” Rev14:1 “Then I looked, and behold, a lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him 144,000, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads.’ This pasage is more of spiritual marking then a physical one. (taken for Debate on Tattoo) In Chinese believe, Thai people and many other culture. The foreheads is the most important part of the human body. For chinese, it is the area where one recieve the light. That is why in olden day they worn hat which had a piece of jade infront to ward off evil. For Thai, it is an offence for anyone to touch their forehead because it is the highest respectful part of the body. Anyone sitting crossed leg with the toe pointing at any Thai people’s forehead greatly offended them. So it is NOT the physical marking of forehead. What the bible meant is that the servant of God, had their thinking and most important part of the body being sealed to serve God only. Whereas those receiving the mark of “666” is worshipping the beast. I had already had the meaning of the revelation of the meaning of “666”, will be writing a book on it. Someone wrote about it which is quite the same revelation that I had received, about a month ago. Click About the Mark on the forehead 666 We all knew that many events that was make to happened in the Bible is now a Spiritual representation of things.
SPIRITUAL WARFARE IS REAL, we have to be a warrior of God to be able to fight and win this war in the 4th dimension before it becomes a reality in the 3rd dimension where once happened it is very difficult to rectified, almost impossible to turn around lest reverse it. The Satan has been the King of all lies, Hell is make for him and he is trying his best to covered up or smoke out Hell to deceived people into believing there is no terrible place Hell, only hades. But Lord Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit who bring into us Gift of discernment and Wisdom.

A man possessed by man evil spirits received deliverance.

Mark 5:4-8 (New International Version)
For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? Swear to God that you won’t torture me!” For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you evil spirit!”

Mark 5:11-13 ” A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” He gave them permission, and the evil spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.”

Can you imagine! Two thousand evil spirits had gotten into this man named Legion. It is true, if one is not careful, having pride, giving in to doing evils and believed instead of resisting false and wrong teachings, will leave openings for these evil spirits to come in. My spiritual daughter from Indonesia said that her husband (just married) had many evil spirits gotten out of him when he was baptised by the Holy Spirit during deliverance (received salvation in mid 2008), because he studied Black Magic. Likewise, be discerning and careful with games and movie we watch, you don’t want these bad things to come into you. So, it is NOT EASY for evil to overtake us, we are being created in the likeness of God and satan needs to have many evil spirits to enter into us in order to completely convert us into going against God. Remembered Judas? Ultimate large opening, Satan entered into him and he betrayed Jesus. Luke 23:3 “Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.” So have faith, children of God, it is not that easy to turn bad unless one had lost faith and leave openings for evils to come in. Praise the Lord! We need only one powerful spirit, Our Holy Spirit (given by the grace of Lord Jesus to had died for us), to drive out all the evil spirits. So it is not easy for these evil to overcome you, it needs many of these evil spirits to convert you into turning against God. That is the reason why we have to have constant renewal of mind, seek repentence and be in prayer always to resist temptations. Hallelujah! We need only one, our Holy Spirit to defeat ALL OF THEM in Jesus name!

Addon notes 22/8/2010

Decided to add more example to make this article more complete.

Example 1 – Preaching about Divorce. (Please note that these are just example, not true happenings)

A Pastor was counciling a group of divorcees because they felt rejected and hurt by a sermon spoken by another pastor on stage in a condemning manner. “God hate divorce! Couples seeking divorce is not right with God.” So after hearing their situation, perhaps he concluded that there are good ground for being divorced. He decided to preach a message that would bring comfort to the divorcees. He selected certain Bible passage to support his sermon theme that “Divorce is alright, Lord Jesus forgives and cleanse the sins away.” That certainly makes divorcees feel more acceptable by the church but guess what happened?
The divorce rate in his church has gone up. Certainly, this subject matter requires more than just understanding and quoting from selected Bible verses, it must be explained in total uncondemning way with the guidance from the Holy Spirit. It must emcompass situation where divorce is deemed as righteous with God. I will cover this topic in another article.

Example 2 – Preaching about Tattoo. (Please note that these are just example, not true happenings)

A Pastor noticed that some Church members tends to avoid sitting with people having tattoos. So he wanted to preach a message that makes his church member understanding and accept Christians who have tattoos. Most of those with tattoos were formally gangster. So, he wrote notes to show that it is alright to have tattoos, he quote Bible passage such as mentioned in the Book of Revelation “sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” The spiritual meaning of sealing the foreheads had been changed to physical marking like tattoos. With other Bible passage, the pastor said that it is alright to tattoo. Then what happened? A mother came storming into the Pastor’s office one morning and showed him the picture of her daughter having tattoo of thorn and roses at her back shoulder. The mother said angrily to the pastor “I had successfully convinced my school going daughter not to tattoo her back for more than a year, then last week she came back trying to concealed her tattoo. I asked her why she disobeyed me. Then, she defended her right and showed me Bible passage that the Bible said tattoo is allowed.”
While this is a good intention of the pastor to tell the member that they should accept people with tattoo but the consequences of twisting the true meaning in the bible resulted in problems.

Example 3 – Twisting the meaning of Bible to fit the theory.

Some even say that certain Bible passage was intepreted wrongly, then they would use Greek or Hebrew original text to justify their doctrine.

In the first place, Bible were being translated to English and many other languages so that the Gospel can reach nations and the four corner of the earth. Just because because there are some disagreement in personal doctrine (or source from other Author), the individual tends to bring in Greeks or Hebrews text to justify their doctrine right and impose on others.

If bring Greeks or Hebrews text for further explain or complement the words in Bible, it is perfectly alright for better understanding.
But DO NOT! Bring in Greeks or Hebrews text to discredit Authors who had translated Bible to English, KJV being the most accurate. All the translators had been inspired by our Holy Spirit, so speaking against the translated Bible may tentamount to blephemies.
If any church body is very concerned that the English interpretation of Bible is inaccurate, then the church might as well insists that all their members read only the original Greeks and Hebrews Bible, cocooned themselves as special class of people.
I came across a book written by an author “Foundation Truths”.
This author don’t quite like the “Hell” word, so he spoke against translators who was inspired by our Holy Spirit. KJV Bible had been recognised and endorsed worldwide as the most accurate translation. And yet to defend his theory and argument, his book wrote that, the translator of KJV had translated wrongly. I would just bring out two rediculous example:-
  1. Lazarus in Abraham’s bosom. (Luke 16:22) –  In dictionary, bosom means chest or part of garment that covers the chest in dictionary. But the author insists that “the place of rest, set apart for the departed spirits of the righteous, is here called “Abraham’s bosom.” The reason why the author have to put in his theory that there was place beneath the earth that is a common holding area for the spirit after death called “Sheol” or “Hades”. Then the author found himself in disagreement and to support his theory, he separate the them in two places, place of ‘Comfort” and place of “torment”.
  2. And the author insisted the final eternal fire is Hell. So now his theory and words is speaks against the spoken words of Lord Jesus’s warning about Hell.

With his kind of theory many question cannot be answered (remember Hell is make for Satan and his dark angels) :-

1. Where is the spirits of those people who never hear the Gospel before, esp tribes people?

2. Lord Jesus mentioned that certain people were given second chance, where do these “second chance spirit”goes to?

3. Similar happening as written by authors who was brought to Hell by Lord Jesus himself, why Lord Jesus have to leave them for awhile to let them torment by the demons and then came back to rescue them later?

Be careful my friend, what is the use if you can use this set of theory to teach people but lost your soul by blesphemies against Father Lord Jesus? Our Holy Spirit had taught me well with HIS wisdom, and what I get is BIBLICAL TRUTH!

End notes :

Conclusion by King Solomon
Eccl 1:2 “All is Vanity.”
Eccl12:14 “For God will bring every work into judement. Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil.”

People really need to have the ability to see things and understanding in much greater depth and more broadly. Some maybe provoked after reading because it appears to them that they can’t attend Academic Bible school because of the “Risk of not getting knowledge from our H.S.” In the first place the Bible was writtened by people, Luke, Mattew, Mark and John as they were inspired by our Holy Spirit and the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelations was inspired by our Holy Spirit. So Churches set up Bible classes, the teacher or preacher would had been also inspired by our Holy Spirit to convey the messages of God, catering to individual’s understanding. What this article emphazed strongly is that ALL must engage our Holy Spirit to be their personal Helper and Teacher always even while attending B.S. or SOT.

System or Spirit Driven real warfare

System driven or Spirit Driven?

Praise the Lord! Finally the truth is out!

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.

Two Sunday back, Our Pastor talked about his trip in Surabaya and share with us on how Alex Abraham was being blessed by our Lord Jesus and the church grow in number to 135,000. Then he also said “Whenever our Church member said that we have an effective system, I am very worried; because God does not need the System. What God wanted is the man. It is the Man, whom God wanted to use for his Kingdom, not the System. What each of us is worth? I’ll tell you what you are worth. You are worth more than silver and gold that you can find on earth! You are worth the Son of God to die for, that is what you are worth!”

Hallelujah, that is the similar message when Rob Thomson said during his sermon “God will not give you a life or plan that makes him unnecessary.” That is to say, God, our Lord Jesus will give you life with abundant, so that you can be overflowing with prosperities, loves and all the Gifts from Heaven, so that you can share and help others.

In every Church Service, the message speaks to individual differently and for me, it is the Gift of Faith that I felt showering onto me. While many probably don’t feel this way, maybe enhancement of knowledge or other anointment. And yet it is the same Holy Spirit that delivers the same message through our Speaker. I have been sharing and talking about problem with people using ‘THE SYSTEM” running CG.

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.

I had written articles about “THE SYSTEM” and finally, with the impartation of Word of Knowledge, it is being delivered at the Church Service. It is said in the Bible, “Those who are born of the Flesh is of the Flesh, those who are born of the Spirit is of the Spirit.” Thus I say “Those who are born of the System are of the System and they will operate and judge people by their system. Those who are born of the Spirit are of the Spirit and will continue to do God’s will, bearing true good fruits.”
A Weeping Woman

The Whitewashed Wall

Thus the unwise will be inclining towards loosing its light and begins to be engulfed by darkness.

A Fool and his Wisdom is soon Parted

Finally, “System People” will find that the Light is diminishing unless there is repentance or deliverance. Shadow of Darkness, the easier role and all kind of fakes will become their System. WORSHIPPING FAME, POWER (AUTHORITY) AND MONEY!

Added Notes 29/3/2009 – Pastor Tan once said “you must identified your Oppressor, you can never progress if you live your life under oppression.”

If we don’t check. The house of God will be completely changed into Merchant House where people will trade God’s Love for money, fame and Authority. (This prophecy warning message sent via email on 25/2/2009)

BLESSED FRUIT TREE NEED NOT CHANGE GROUND

“The System” people do not have the spiritual Eyes to assess people. They will based on Academic Records of people, have they gone through “The System” and how long they have been in the Church. Thus, it is natural for them to establish a hierarchy system, where the senior cannot get too familiar with the very junior. They tends to see those who just join Church as baby christian, needed nourishment and yet not extending to them for their growth readily. Well, in another words, not only they tends to distance themselves from those whom they considered as baby christian but also not very willing to spare time for them and they tends to shrug them off whenever the little one wanted to share things that our Lord Jesus had revealed to them. Their mindset thinking is that those little one who had not progress through their system would not have the ability to receive Visions or word of Knowledge from God. Just because they themselve could not conceive visions or dreams, they became a Vision and Dreamer killer. (like Jacob when Joseph told his dream). Thus these “System People” not only could not see spiritually but are also deaf to Our Lord Jesus’ voice because they set themselves distance away from God, for the Bible said :-

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.” Revelation as reading 6/10/2014, The more children placed infront of disciples nearer to Jesus, the more distance the disciples will be from Jesus because they are not humble.

God spoke through the woman Richard Roberts dislike the most. God spoke through the little one and even through non-believer as a test of faith! God allow a donkey to speak to a prophet.

The worst part is that they will received answers, but not from God, from the Dark Shadow, the King of All Lies. And they thought they are doing God’s Will. Whether a person’s heart is good or bad is evident by one’s fruits. It is very evident, as you see “The System people” whom I also called “The Whitewashed Wall” tends to keep distance by not sitting with the junior one. It happened again and again. Even Our Lord Jesus had shown good example by sitting and talking to Tax Collectors, sinners, Samaritan woman and had washed the feet of the disciples.
The “System People” will continue to abuse The Authority accorded to them and abuse the “Good BS” that was developed. In those olden days, Good disciples had been generated without Bible School and it is sad that we have this “Good BS” where “The SYSTEM people” misused it as a reward system where only those who “FIT” their system requirement have the right to attend the BS Thus, unshamedly holding Ransom to those whom in their judgment do not qualified to be a member to enjoy the BS, creating Divisions and built many Whitewashed walls, thus retarding membership and spiritual growth.

If this is God’s will, may this message be the impartation of Discernment and Word of Knowledge. The days are near. Only those who had been practicing Gift of Discernment, acquired the Wisdom will have Visions and dreams, and only Wisdom can gives the individual the ability to execute the action at the right time and with pin-point accuracy according to God’s Will.

Beware, those who received Gift of Discernment, you can see and hear, and yet you can’t tell. You’ll have Great Spiritual responsibilities. Those whom you now see as radiating lights may be revealed as fake light. You need to earnestly pray for Gift of Wisdom and the Holy Spirit; our Helper will help you administrate the Spiritual Gifts, where, you will be a true God’s warrior, able to wield “The Sword” correctly and slice cleanly to separate the Good from Evil, splitting the Spoken words to reveals the truth from the false. And you will fly like an eagle high up in the Sky, swift and quick to see the direction of people heading, towards Eternal life or Destruction. Able to single out Prey, snatch and bring them for good use.

It is such a burden to have Gift of Discernment because what you hear or see spiritually, you can’t tell because you are surrounded by unbelievers, you will be persecuted and dislike by many. God, our Lord Jesus had opened my ears and I hear the hoarse voice of the Dark Shadow, “You better Go Home Now!” I wasn’t prepared but leave the church to tell the story (it was very strange that the person had to speak to me like this for the daily morning prayer in the Jurong West CHC. Everybody knew that they have to leave after prayer). Then at Mike Connell service. Many would have heard the cry of the Male Demon on the Right hand side of stage and another a woman demon at the back seat onto of the slope crying and screaming. As said in Bible, every church has weeds. If we don’t recognise the Root of these Weeds, slowly but surely these “System People” will spread their tares leafs and crowded the God’s people, thus poisoning their mind and turning them into liking darkness, the easy way. Leave the uprooting of these tares to the Son of Man in days to come or else you may uproot those good wheats along with it.

Our Lord Jesus had opened my eyes, I saw the Dark Shadow of one of them (known person face) standing at the back row seats at the slope all by himself and yet I can’t tell nor reveal much information.

We have to do Spiritual Health Check ourselves, “Am I System driven or Holy Spirit driven?” For “THE SYSTEM” is developed and conceived by THE FLESH. And we all know that the Flesh is weak, easily manipulate by the Evil one. While those who are born of the SPIRIT will do God’s Will and live through eternality. Running CG is likening to doing ACCOUNTS. Before the Book is being close, there are errors pointed out. And also the balance sheet doesn’t balance needed to be reconciled. I had witness silly people trying to reconcile after the Book is closed. What I am saying is that, while a person’s heart is still open to CG, identified, admit errors and correct them. If reconciliation is needed, do it with God’s Love. But what I saw was the justification of their action (The System people, saying that they had done the duty by visiting the hurts and needy). There after, they would wash hand saying that it is their FREE will whether to come back or not. Such were the foolish action of people, how can they do reconciliation when THE BOOK is already closed? The Bible said:

Matt:18:5: And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
Matt 18:6 “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Matt 18:10 “Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.”

Hellujah, Praise the Lord, God, Our Lord Jesus. Let’s pray for those “System People”, “The Whitewashed Wall, modern day Pharisees Christian” Pray for their Deliverance, Salvation.

Rob Thomson had said during his Sermon that both God and Satan had one thing in common, that both wanted people. God, our Lord Jesus wanted people because he first loved them. He wanted all people to be in Heaven for eternal salvation. While the Evil One, Satan wanted people to accompany him in the Hell of destruction. “Satan always provides the easy way.” Last week sermon by Pastor Tan, very true of him saying how the Evil One will provide the answer or solution to those people and then bring them down and ridicule and make fun of them for their mistake. Sometimes, shame them until self destruction, such as spiritual suicide. So, remember the Cross? Vertically Loving God, Horizontally, loving your neighbors. All the while many Christian, think very far, horizontally reach non-believer. But wait! If horizontally, we can’t even know how to forgive and love our neighboring brothers and sisters how are we going to show Love to others?
Allow me to ask one question. Would the Guests like to stay in a Home that is Cold or a Home that is kindled with warm fire? The answer is obvious. So, let’s clean up our House first and let’s spread kindle fire and warm up the House of God before the Guest come. Read this article “SPREADING KINDLED FIRE” By the way, this article was written based on a Vision I saw during the morning prayer in Church when everyone is in Spirit.

Gal 6:2 “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”

Praise the Lord, Sermon by Ed Silvoso on 9/11/2008 helped me to identified this system as Babylon System.

1. Control

2. Humanistic (Demonic)

3. Pride

4. Selfishness

1. They like to Control people, quick to get angry and punish people who break their unwritten rules instead of forgiving and coaching them.

2. They couldn’t hear the Holy Spirit instruction. Based on Humanistic instructions and judgement to do things. These are demonic because flesh is weak subject to satanic control.

3. Since they use very much of their own effort and system. They have lots of PRIDE, claiming victory upon victory for themselves. They may had said with their mouth “glory to God” but deep inside their heart; the subconscious-self, they claim glory for themselves.

4. They are generally selfish in doing things for their own gain such as getting recognisation and pleasing their ideals, to the extend that they exclude other people’s revelation and opinion. Lord Jesus like to use little one to talk to them as a TEST OF FAITH. They failed. If you can recall message by Richard Roberts, had he not listened to the person he don’t like most. He wouldn’t have been a great healer and speaker today. Our Lord Jesus will use the unexpected to test our faith!

slaughter jezebel

Calling true warriors of God. Let’s us slaughter some dragons tonight. Lord Jesus is our Supreme commander. After “The woman” had been saved by the Earth, “The dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” Rev 12:17 Your reward, “A commander of dragon slayer army of God.”
End note:

Remember, DO NOT GRIEF THE HOLY SPIRIT. Holy Spirit will leave you and you’ll became worst than before. You will be worst off then backslide Christians.

Why backslides Christian is harder to convert to Christian again? The Bible may provide the answer.

Matt 12:43 – 44 “When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.”

Thus, it is difficult for backslide Christian to come back to Kingdom of God.

This wickedness may not necessarily means that the person will be so wicked as to go around killing people or do evil to people.

But, what it means is that the person will be doing things against God’s will. It doesn’t matter whether it is small sin or big sin. In God’s eye, every sin is still a sin, and this is the wickedness. So the backslide Christian probably have many area that were filled by bad spirits such that it build up resistant to obey God, never want to be a Christian again. Many had once learned great values from the Bible and now they used their intelligent to turn these learned words into self-ruling and self believe.

For myself, our Lord Jesus had shown and proves to me of my foolishness of trying to manage my business without much wisdom, thus I was convicted and accepted Jesus Christ again on 2nd Dec 2007. It was like a sharp blade slicing away the bad part of me without suffering any pain but with tears of Joy because Our Lord Jesus had died on the cross for me and the Faith restored and my believe is now in the right place facing the Kingdom of Heaven. Hallelujah!!

 

God, Our Lord Jesus planned everything according to his perfect timing. The tree of life, the living words of God will continue to initiate the flows of Manas from Heaven, never ending words of Wisdom from HIM whom we trust.

“Let us NOT do things that brings us apart but continue to have one mind, one understanding, one unity of mission, walking as the one Body of Christ” 21/03/2009

“When you stop working for yourself. You’ll ask “Lord Jesus, what you want me to do in this new work place.” Salary & environment is not an issue. LOVE RULES.” 20/03/2009

“The Truth stands by itself. It can be spoken to anyone. It is the Salt and Light. While fakery can only be spoken to people who trust them. Liars decieves.” 12/03/2009

About building and improving relationship.

Msg 1 “Effective communication is listening to the person attentively and saying words to the person that he or she will listen”.
Msg 2 “You must make assessment on a person from inside out, and when you look at people you must look at them from outside in.”

Some people may thought that I had taken all these Words of Wisdom from some books or aritcle.
Yes, people with these thought is 100% correct because I do not have these abilities. I am just a cheap steward willing to be used by our Holy Spirit. So it is not me who writes all these things but by HIM who Inspired me. Thank You Lord Jesus.

Calling true warriors of God. Let’s us slaughter some dragons tonight. Lord Jesus is our Supreme commander. After “The woman” had been saved by the Earth, “The dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.” Rev 12:17 Your reward, “A commander of dragon slayer army of God.
Finally, the victory and glory for our Lord Jesus can be spoken loudly this Year End and forever more. His name is King of Kings, Lord of Lords. Demon, dragons fled on hearing His name, melt away and perished by the blood of Lord Jesus. Those being unknowingly operated by the evil Spirit of Jezebel, just watch! Year 2011 is the year of slaying with the TRUE SWORD OF GOD. Don’t go around walking as NAKED HEADLESS ZOMBIE! hahaha, what a joy to celebrates with my Angels in heaven. I can sensed their dragons, baby dragons and their idols gnashing of teethes and trembling. Praise and glory to Lord Jesus.”
Add on notes 6/10/2014 :
Since I has spoken to someone on 30/9/2014 about the vision Father Jesus showed me as I was writing this article 4 years back.  I saw 3 prominent person fallen and it was unbelievable. So at that time, I debated with my Senior Partner (our Holy Spirit), “How can it be possible, they preached good message and brought many people to Christ. They can’t be false prophet, can they?” At that time, no affirmative answer were given. And I leave as it is, without thinking about.  Then all these persecutions and saga started after AC2010. And my Senior Partner reminds me of the vision I saw of the fallen men. Lamp posts were removed and this is the prophecy of “fallen men” given to me as I wrote this article in 28th Mar 2009.

My Mom and Sister Ah Bong is in Heaven

My Mom and Sister Ah Bong is in Heaven

On many occasion, I was troubled by this uncertianty, uncertain if my mom is in Heaven. I know, I should have faith in what my sister had told me that my mom had accepted Lord Jesus on the day she passed away. I prayed to Lord Jesus to forgive me for this doubts. My mother died of cancer about 9 years ago. I was not at my mom’s bedside when she passed away, I was at work and being in stress. My youngest Sister Laura told me that she had accepted Lord Jesus Christ as savior and I wasn’t sure of that, so I prayed to Lord Jesus once sometime back, I think couple of months, to reveal if my mother is in heaven or not.
For me, this is a pressing concern because I wanted to testified to my father that my mother is heaven and he really need to receive salvation if he wants to be with my mother. Apology, I can’t remember the exact date. I think one day in mid Feb 2009, Our Lord Jesus allow the Angels, once again to brought me to heaven, this time, the backyard of a mansion. The angel, (I see neither the face nor body) introduced me to a pretty young lady, I think she must be 27 year old. (I had forgotten what was the name mentioned to me). She held my left hand and brought me into the chicken coop.
She wore nice dress in bright green, looks very elegant on her. This reminds me of the olden days when we use to have this same things. The door was made of chicken coop wire mesh on wooden flame. I was in transformed body, in my youth, younger then her. Then she latches the door behind me. I felt very close to her like someone I knew; she resembles my eldest Sister and 2nd Sister. Distinctively, she has thicker lips (even upper and lower) that gave a broader sweet smile. The ground was of dry solid light brown soil but it is so clean that I could take off my pair of shoes and walk on it. No Chicken or duck droppings can be found on the ground. The air is still, no bad smells. Then, she leads me past two fruit trees and went to the 3rd one, she stretched her pair of hands into the leaves and plucked a purple fruit that looks like egg plant, three fists size. And, she happily hugged this purple fruit in her left arm and said to me “Come, I want to bring you to meet someone.”
My heart was beating faster a little bit because I felt that she was bringing me to someone very close to me, like my wife. Was she my wife? So we walk past the same 2 fruit trees (all are not very tall, about 2 times my height) and then turn right. Then, a woman stopped tending to the other fruit Tree and turn around. “Chim Mah!” I exclaimed. (We called her Chim Mah, my mother. In Hokkien, Chim Mah means Auntie. Those day, people don’t want the addressing to be confused, today I still called my father “Dee Chay” meaning 2nd Uncle) This is my mom before she was diagnosed with cancer in the early 50. She looked the way she was while being healthy. I was very happy to see my mother. She was smiling happily, unlike those days she suffered going through all the Chemotherapy.
(Addon contribution by Jean, 5th sister). At that time when she had this ailment, mom had a very strong will to live although she was in great pain and had told Jean that she wanted to be with all the children, grandchildren and she wanted to see her get married. Mom received salvation just two days before our Lord took her away. Jean had been cutting my mom’s hair once every three weeks. She teared in the memory of cutting mom’s hair as she could recalled that her hair felt lifeless, dry and coarse. She was very glad that she was able to gave her hair cut on Thursday so that she looked very neat, then following Saturday, she passed away. I think mom purposely gave up the will to live because she don’t want all of us to continue suffering the financial hardship, probably aware that we are struggling to meet this high cost of cancer treatment.
(Added note 090909) By the mercy and grace of Lord Jesus, my mom was taken to heaven with him that day to relieve hers and everybody’s suffering, 27th Oct 1999. Heaven is an awesome place, it was so clean, no sickness and the daylight was just nice, not too warm. Same feeling as when I was brought to the back garden of Heaven where there is prairie of grass. (The Place of Sanctuary) The same place that King David had visited as mentioned in Psalm. We didn’t talk much but happily look at each other, enjoying each others’ company. Then all 3 of us walked out of the chicken coop.
Closing the door behind and both of them held each other hand and signaled to me that they want to cook a meal. Then, it is time for me to go and I woke up. I was telling myself that I wished to stayed with my mom and sister forever, it was so peaceful and nice but Lord Jesus won’t allow me because there are much work to do in this world.

On 22/3/2009 after Church Service, I visited my father in Ang Mo Kio at around 2pm. My father is now age 82 and is still actively teaching singing in Community Centre. I asked him if he remembered my sister who died during World War 2? He said
“Her name is Ah Bong, during those days giving away and taking in children is very common. Because my cousin in Malaysia does not have children so my mother suggested that I gave this daughter away to them afterall I already have 3 daughters. Ah Bong rank number 4 in our family.” Ah Bong? This name does rings a bell in my mind. It is in fact, the name mentioned to me by the Angel and I forgotten when I woked up. My father continues. “During those days where are under Malaysia rule, we could travel in and out of Malaysia Freely. They stayed in Johore Bahru. My father said that this child given to them actually caused them to have quarrels very often. He did not know why. Sometimes if both couple have to work, they have to pay neighbor $10 to look after them. Those day $10 is a lot of money. Then, they cannot bear anymore and decided to return Ah Bong to me; I cannot reject them since she is my own daughter, right? Ah Bong was in very bad health during that time. One day when we fed her milk she passes out milk, her stomach could not digest. Then she had high fever, brought her to Tan Tock Seng Hospital for treatment. Then, she recovered for 3 days and then relapsed into high fever and pass away.” I asked my father “What was her age at that time when she died?” My Father replied “I think she was 5 at that time.”
I remembered once, we have to visit another relative on the other side of Johore Bahru. The only way to reach there was by boat, there was no roadway. And I was told that we could not bring any cloth there. So my mother wrapped the yards of cloth around my waist and hid under my baggy T-shirt to smuggle in. The Malaysian custom officers in petrol boat came near us and left us after received cigarette and some money from my father. Things have not change much. Then, I share with him that Lord Jesus allowed me to go to Heaven to visit my Mother’s mansion at the backyard. Ah Bong was with her, she is a pretty lady at age 27. Mother look like as she was in the early 50 at that time when she was not diagnosed with cancer, enjoying traveling. She is in the pink of health. I told my father that in Heaven, there is no sickness and the Chicken Coop that I went in is very very clean, there is no flies, no Chicken or duck droppings. For many years, every time he talked about mother he would cry. But this time, he didn’t cry but managed a hidden smile. He said “Ah Bong is a very hardworking and obedience child. She helped to cut grass for some richer neighbors to earn money and even tired from work, she still happily helps out with household chore. She always asks how I am.” With that I told my father that both mother and sister Ah Bong is waiting for him in Heaven. They are not suffering anymore, no sickness but happily in Heaven. So, I encouraged him to accept Lord Jesus so that our whole family can be together to eternality. My father did not answer me. Then, I said to him that all this while Ah Bong had been taking care of us without us knowing. “Hopefully, Ah Bong can appear in your dream to speak to you.” I said to my father. Then I went home.

End notes:

Matt 6:20-21: “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” As I read this article again and again, tears of joy kept flowing. Wished that I could have spent longer time with my Mom and Sister. Perhaps have wonderful meal with them before I wake up.

My Blessed trip to Surabaya Dec 2007

Singapore International Airport

A. At home preparing for the Trip

19/12/07 9am

I wasn’t really ready for the trip. I have not packed my luggage and also have not bought Christmas Gift for my Online Daughter Cichi (Now call Spiritual Daughter). Also I remembered that I had not book my seat for the Flight yet, so I called JetStar and confirmed my seat. Then I went to Jurong pt at around 10.15am and I bought a brooch for Cichi. On reaching home, I discovered that Cichi SMS me at 8.13am saying that her Boy Friend will pick me up in his Motorbike. Lolz, that means I cannot use my Brand New ABN Amro Luggage bag. I continue to type my reborn again Testimony. Oh dear, what present to give to her Boy Friend? I really have no time to buy. So I went to my Metal Cabinet drawer and found a brand new mouse, I decided to give this as Gift. I can’t finish my Testimony, as I am running late, I decided to pack up for my trip. I found my Samsonite Cloth Luggage and decided to use it, as it is more ideal for my ride on the Bike as it is Flat. After packing in everything that I needed for 3 days. I found space for my carry bag with Lap Top. Wonderful; but I am running late. It is 11.45am. I am supposing to check-in 40 minutes before 13.35 hrs, the flight time. There will be no refund or reschedule of flight if check-in after less than 40 mins before departure time at 13.35 hrs. At the Road Side, just outside my apartment; 1, 2, 3, 4 taxi passes by without stopping and I was really desperate, going to be late. So I prayed to our Lord Jesus for help. Just then a Vacant Taxi came to my rescue just across the road. The time is 12:21pm. Oh dear, I wonder if I can make it to the Airport, 40 mins before 13:35 hrs. i.e 12:50 hrs. On my way, I constantly prayed to Lord Jesus; and said unto our Lord “if it is God’s will that I should not be in Surabaya, then I shall be late”. Finally, the Taxi arrived at Terminal 1, exactly 12:50pm, traveled a distance of 39.1km. I quickly rush in to check-in at the ValueAir counter; just in time. Praise the Lord.

B. Arrival in Surabaya on time

Fighting Statue Symbol
While on flight, the gentlemen sat beside me saw me reading Bible and he turned around and said, “you are a good Christian, and he ask if I do preaching service?” I told him “No, I am just Servant of God” So I asked him for his reason for coming to Singapore and he said he has to come to Singapore once every 3 months for his treatment at Glen Eagles Hospital. The Flight stewardess served us a piece of meat bun, plain water and a cup of coffee. Budget Airline what, what can I expect, paying airfare of S$68 only. Then we exchange name card; and I found that he is a Catholic Priest based in Surabaya. We share some common knowledge like, how to stay young and happy. We both agreed that we must have a joyful and happy spirit within us. This is some joke I shared with him. Saeedah (my Colleague) had mentioned that she is feeling old sitting besides 2 old men and how I managed to convince her that it is the joyful and energetic spirit that keeps a person young. I tell her of a real life experience where a man of only 33 years of age but doesn’t look like his age, haggled and full of white hair. 2.45pm Surabaya time (it is 1 hr behind Singapore) Our ValueAir landed perfectly without Bounce. I told my newfound friend that I was here in 1992 on transit to Australia with the Republic of Singapore Air Force. The C-130 bounces 3 times on landing.

Cichi SMS me to wait for her Boy Friend at Judang, that means Taxi pickup area, I think. A good-looking young man approached me and said “Are you Stanley? I am Cichi boy friend, Rudy.” So I replied, “Yes, I am. Am I so glad to meet you. Thank you”. After introduced ourselves, I came to know that Cichi and Rudy is our Brother and Sister in Christ. They both attend Bethany Church Service. God Bless. It is drizzling outside. Rudy asked me to wait for him while he rides his Bike here. Within short wait, Rudy arrived with his small Bike. I sat on it with my Samsonite in-between him and me. He was very concerned that I might fall sick by getting wet. But I told him that it is okay. The destination is going to takes about 2 hrs, so my back will get wet. Rudy started his small Bike and off we go into the drizzling rainfall. Wow, what a ride! There are more bikes than cars and it is amazing to see Cars giving way to bike and bikes gave way to Bicycle. My rider waved in and out of traffic amongst all the other bikes. Throughout the journey, I prayed to Lord Jesus for our Safety. So many turns, left and right, squeezing in between vehicles and at one stage a van was just inches away from my back, threatening to hit me. It was very exciting but dangerous. We are about 1 hour 15 mins into our journey and Rudy decided on a mid-way stop. We had our food at JS PLAZA Lt.2 Rudy bought me KFC as I had not changed Sin dollar to Rupiah. He ordered himself, Japanese style food. Then I wanted to take picture with Rudy but he said he don’t like to have his picture taken. So I just take a shot of the shopping center. Having our belly filled up we continued our journey. Same experience again, waving in and out of the traffic. Smelly dung from Cow and Goat being breed domestically by the roadside. What a sight! Finally almost 40 minutes we arrived at Hotel Cendana, so Rudy asked me what is my budget for the hotel. So I tell him, in the region of US$30. So he did not hesitate to move forward and ask the Security guard standing in front of us. The friendly security guard guided Rudy to another Hotel, only 2 mins away. Hotel Pregolan. It is like cottage house. So I chose Standard room and the rate is exactly S$30 after conversion. Perhaps he heard wrongly, thought I said S$30, LOLz. I request Rudy to bring Cichi to meet me on the same night. So I waited but fell asleep.

19/12/07 2315 hrs

Then about 11.25pm I heard my door being knocked. Rudy and Cichi were here. So I opened my door and let them in. Rudy bought SIM card for me. I briefly discussed with them of my plan. So we had decided to meet the next day, which is 20/12/07 11am. But later Cichi SMS to me saying they would come at 1pm instead as she has something to do.

20/12/07 8am

Writing my Testimony

I woke up, continue the testimony and managed to complete it. At 10:27 am, I received SMS from Cichi saying that she and Rudy cannot come till 1pm because they have something to do. Oh dear, so I am stranded here till 1 pm. So I waited but both of them are not here. I went to HOTEL CENDANA nearby, 3 minutes walk. Found out from the desk girl that I can use the Credit Card to purchase meal at Restaurant there. I am really hungry. The waitress brought me to the seat and passed me the manual. So to play safe, I asked if they’d accept Credit Card, she said must-spent minimum $100,000 Rp. So I studied the manual. Most costly main meal cost only $34,000 Rp. I have got to buy 3 meals to accumulate to $100,000Rp. So I can’t eat here too, headed back to my Hotel. Then at 1.54pm, I received SMS from Cichi, asking me to prepare myself, as they are bringing me to the Mall.Flood on Street
Rudy drove a Boxed pickup here with Cichi accompany him, of course. So I hop onto the front seat beside Cichi and off we go. Rudy reminded me to carry my Computer along so that I can show and teach Cichi web design. Ah yes, we arrived at PLASA SURABAYA. Pretty big Plaza like Jurong Point. Shoppers here comprises of at least 45% Chinese and Rudy told me that, this shopping center is for middle and upper class. Yes very clean, many good branded retail. Passed by some Toy shop, I mentioned that I am looking for Rubik Cube for my younger son but I suggested to Rudy that we could eat first. So we went and have meal together. I ordered Satay with rice and another plate of rice with Beef. Rudy and Cichi ordered salted vegetable soup with pork rib, Kabar stick. I have my other order of desert, Ice jackfruit and fruit mixture with syrup. While Rudy have Avocado and Coconut mix. I offer to say payer of thanks before consuming our food. Lolz, Cichi said that Rudy complained that my prayer was too soft because he can’t hear my prayer. Then I said, I have to be mindful of Muslim around us but he said it is Okay. I asked for the Bill but Rudy refused to give because he said that I am their Guest, I should not pay. So I told him that if he doesn’t let me pay this meal, next time I dared not come to Surabaya. See my trick worked. He reluctantly gave me the bill and I paid him $100,000 Rp. Meal cost $98,000 Rp. The desert was so delicious, they are all make from fresh fruit and coconut milk, unlike back home where it is all canned stuff, Yak! Then we went to have a look at the Multiplex Theatres and found out that most of the new show that Singapore already been showing for weeks is not here yet. I can see some concern in Rudy’s eye, so I told them, I am not watching movie, as it is 8pm already, don’t want to tired them out. Rudy told me that he is not rich, he provides service and skill to his friend in return for accommodation, food and the trading in glassware, and they will split profit. So, perhaps I think, they have been sourcing for transport so that is the reason why they came late. Then Rudy and Cichi said that tomorrow, they can’t meet me as they have to help prepare and attend a friend’s wedding. On the way back, apparently the rain had stopped. So I kept my umbrella, but once out of the building, there are rain droplets. Rudy turned hero for Cichi, he removed his T-Shirt, bare top to let Cichi cover her head. Wow, a hero to the rescue. Lolz, I thought I should take my shirt too and throw it onto the floor, so that Cichi don’t have to walk on onto wet floor, ha ha ha.

21/12/07 – 8.30am

Today I got a FREE and Easy day myself. I woke late about 8.30am; I started to continue my trip dairy. Read Bible and complete one more Testimony. Then it started to rain. I decided to walk to the mall myself and along the way, many Taksi horn at me, hoping that I would ride on them. Many turn here and there, round the perimeter of the building and I finally reached Mall in 10 mins. It is about 3pm. I walked every level of the shops surveying the things being sold there. I need to buy the 4 X 4 Rubik Cube for my younger son but couldn’t find any toyshop selling. Nothing much to buy as mostly branded is just slight cheaper than Singapore. No even up to S$10 cheaper, I am comparing Shoes, Shirt, pant, and watches. I finished my shops tour at all level; it must be 4.30pm so I asked the information counter if there is an Internet surfing facility there. I was told there is two free Wi-Fi surfing, 6th floor, Coffee Bean and Ground floor the TeleKom Kopi Cafe. I bought a 3-pin plug converter and secure a seat for myself. It is good that I am Multi tasking. I get to read some of my emails, and then I am hooked on Yahoo Online Pool while tweaking the Shopping cart script. I realized that this script is not bug free and is not 100% adaptable for Multi Language. I don’t know. Just Praise the Lord for the Wisdom. For I never have gone for any course or training on php programming script but somehow I managed to solve the problem in 45 mins while enjoying some pool game. I continue to do some graphic amendment and create new folder for Bahasa Indonesia.

So my trick is in the Language file, put all the button links there so that upon calling of particular language type, it will automatically show the correct Language Title banners and buttons. It Works, Great! I had won one online pool game and lost four. 🙁 Oops it is 2015 hrs, I better hit for home. As I stepped out of the building, my cheerful face becomes worry face. The landmark building that supposedly guide me home has been engulfed by darkness. I am not sure of my way home. So I prayed to our Lord Jesus to help me to calm down. Slowly but surely, I started to remembered my direction, yes; turn right, walk straight pass 2 car dealers, past 2 buildings and then turn right along shopping building parameter and walk straight, look for road junction where there is a Yunan Shopping center at MTX building. Yes found it. And I make it back to the Hotel around 8.40pm. Back to Hotel, I sing praise to our Lord Jesus Hallelujah, Hallelujah. I watched live telecast of Europe Soccer but fell asleep. Just before sleeping at 1.30 am somehow I getting to smell familiar perfume. “Are you here?” then I went to sleep. The day before, heard a voice saying “What is it going to be now?”

22/12/07

Breakfast I waited but somehow both Ruby and Cichi wasn’t here in the morning. Ah yes, I have the same breakfast for the past 3 days, 4 slice of bread with some butter, chocolate sprinkles, 2 hard-boiled eggs with salt at side of the plate, one cup of coffee and one cup of tea. It is about 12.30pm and both of them still not here. So I decided to check out first to settle my bill, 507,000 Rp for 3 nights stay. That is less than S$28 per day. Getting worried, I called Rudy and Cichi couple of times but no answer. Then, I start to help myself to ease my tension. I get to know the Desk girls and joke with them. Tell them about my Friendster account and Yahoo chatter Id, get to know all the 3 girls name. Tell some more jokes. Oh yes, I gave away my Singapore 20 cent coins to all 3 of them plus a Male cleaner; they all like it very much. Then all the girls take my coin and rubbed against their back shoulder and they said that it is for Luck. I told all 3 of them to rub on my back shoulder, so that I can have more lucks than them. Ha ha ha. Just then Rudy called me saying he will be here at 2.15pm. When I was just about to have more joke fun, both of them came and I hopped onto Ruby’s Boxed Pickup and he drove me to Airport. I checked in first and then once I come out of the secured area, I took pictures with Rudy and Cichi. We have lunch together. Cichi have Fried Noodle, I have beef on rice and Rudy have Beef soto with rice. This time I volunteered to do the thanks prayer but both of them still have their eyes close even I had said Amen. Lolz , they said I prayed too soft again. I paid the bill even though Ruby insist that he should be the one paying since I am their guest. Ruby seems lost for words till I kept saying it is okay I want to get rid of my Rp. Then I depart for Singapore arrived at 6.45pm Singapore time. Journey takes about 1 hrs 45 mins. At Airport, no none came to pick me up so I took a Taxi home.
Friendly Counter Staff rubbed Coin on Shoulder for luck :)Cichi and Me, Daughter and Papa :)

SPIRITUAL BATTLE IN 4TH DIMENSION

SPIRITUAL BATTLE IN 4TH DIMENSION

angelYesterday night was like a dream. But the event was so real and I decided to record this down as a testimony for our Lord’s glorious victory and his loving care. You can be one great warrior for our Lord Jesus as long as you are willing to be used wholly by the Holy Spirit.

Here is the true encounter:-

I was in a house, all geared up for the battle.
There was a few ladies, I couldn’t see their face, one of them started to talk to me.
“There, the evil one is in that room, many had tried to go in that room but never come out again.”
This must be some kind of warning or discouragement.
But I couldn’t care much, I rebuked “This house belongs to God, I must go in and get rid of whatever that is inside there.”
“Show me where is the room” I said to the lady. I see her not in person, but hear only her voice.
“There is the room” she pointed out to me, it looked like a storeroom, without hesistation, I dashed forward and went into the room with its door already swung opened.
There, the room is not brightly lighted up. Then I came face to face with a person dressed in black and he is faceless.
The dress is like those bubble black lady dress and with the hoop having a garget like an antenna on top.
“Don’t hide, show me your face if you dare!” I shouted to him.
Just then his face appeared within the hoop, a man in his mid forty. He said to me. “Who are you? Who is your Lord?”
I said to to him “I come in the of name Lord Jesus Christ, I am here with the power of Holy Spirit to redeem this house of God!”
“Huh! The King of Jews from Nazareth. Spell out His name if He is really your Lord!” said The man.
I refused because I knew this is his trick to make me obey him, I might accidentally spelled Jesus’ name wrongly and weaken my faith.
“By the authority of the Lord Jesus, with the power of Holy Spirit, I command you to get of this house!”
“Spell out His name if He is really your Lord!” He said again angrily and continuously repeatedly.
“In Jesus’ name, I command you to get out of this house.” Then, I continue by praying in tongues.
In my heart and soul, I was saying the same thing,”In Jesus’ name, I command you to get out of this house!”
His voice became softer and softer.
Out of sudden, the room disappeared and I saw myself in the bright living room of the House.
Then, a young man in the 30s fell in front of me and I support his back to prevent him from hitting the ground.
Then I kneeled beside him, I continued to pray and bless him.
He is someone I knew, then he said in a weak voice to me “This is what I needed.”
So, I touched his face and there was slight redness in his right check.
Then he came around and said thanks to me.
Hallelujah, the spiritual battle has been won in the 4th dimension.

Addon notes 21/11/2010 – Awesome sermon by Phil Pringle.

I have been waiting for someone to share testimony that would really help christians understand that spiritual warfare in the 4th dimension is unavoidable being a christian, and being a son or daughter of God, you should have the ability to use the weapons and angels to fight against those demons and devil in Jesus’ name and win a resounding victory for Him. God will make the enemy your Foot stool!

Praise the Lord, Pastor Phil Pringle did it for Lord Jesus.

Pastor Phil shared not just one encounter but two encounters with  demons, first case was about himself and then second case was about the testimony of his friend.

First testimony.  Back then, Phil had submitted to the state council with regard to the building of his church but the state rejected it outright. Then, in one service, sitted at the front row. A huge muscular and tall demon was standing infront of the pulpit, sort of trying to block Phil, it is in the way as the Pastor was preaching. Then Phil prayed and consulted Lord Jesus on what to do. Lord Jesus gave him the bible verse “All thing were done for the good of His people whom He love in Jesus name.” The demon reacted in fear at the spoken words of God. Not the kind of bible verse that Phil expected, like warfare aggressive fighting bible verse, but Pastor Phil obeyed the Lord anyway.
So, after the service he went home and the demon was at His place this time round, cursing and was much smaller in size, no more muscular but skinny. Phil continued to pray the same bible verse and rebuked the demon. The demon was further reduced in size, now like a child. Next moment, the demon was curled up and with chains bound all around his body. The next day, Pastor Phil received a call from the State council providing good news that the Church building was approved.
Lesson learned from this encounter is that you must obey the spoken rhema words of Lord Jesus and use the bible verse to rebuke the demon and you will win a resounding victory for our Lord. Lord Jesus did that when was being lead into wilderness by the Spirit to be tempted by the devil.

The Second testimony was from Phil’s friend, he said that his friend was stressed and in a suicidal state of mind. Then, one day, God allowed his friend to see the vision of himself. What he saw was a demon using a club to continue to bashed him and condemm him saying that he can’t do many things, useless, hopeless, etc. Then, at the same time, he also saw about 5 Angels standing around seeing him being punished by the demon, and they didn’t do anything with their sword down and head looking down in low morale. Then, he felt that he could not be in this down stage anymore, he started to pray and praise God. The moment he praised God, the angels gained morale and started to looked up. Then, he continue to praise and danced and jumped in joy for God. The demon, as he could see was getting nervous. Then the Angels, held up their swords and fight off the demon. Phil’s friend won the spiritual warfare in Jesus’ mighty name and he recovered from stress.

Friends, spiritual warfare is real. You got to have deep rooting with our Holy Spirit in order to be able to put on the whole armor and be the warrior for Lord Jesus.

Eph 6:11 ” Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

Pastor Phil shared to the congregation about the four weapons, we can use to fight against the demons:

1. Name of Jesus. – Lord Jesus is the AUTHORITY over all things as contrary to power.

2. Blood of Jesus – evil freed at the sign of Jesus’ blood.

3. The word of God – Lord Jesus used the words of God and defeated the devil.

4. Praise .

Friends, as you can see from these three encounters. You’ll acknowledge that spiritual warfare is real in the 4th dimension. With the weapons given to us, who can go against us? By the way, you may had not used the formidable weapon, Pleading the blood of Jesus. I tell you the truth, demons and devils will melt by the blood of Lord Jesus, just like salt onto the snail, they will melt away! Imagine if you could had used the blood of Lord Jesus. Unimaginable powerful weapon for spiritual warfare! Very very importantly, never let the devil (or devil manipulated person) to speak or even negotiated terms with you in your life. If you openned yourself up, you are putting off the armor that is protecting you and you may ended up obeying the devils’ command. My experience illustracted clearly, the devil tempt me to obey him by simply spell out the name of Jesus but I really thanked Lord Jesus for the Holy Spirit partner He had given me and guided me so well to the perfection of defeating the devilish Old man and this brother, signed up for SOT about two and half weeks later. The wife was very delighted and shared about it during our CG meeting but my part of helping this brother defeact the “Old Man” in him, I couldn’t share openly, because I am a lowly noboby, who would believe what I say, anyway? Say thanks to Lord Jesus for His glory if you believe. As an obedience child, you must pen down all encourage as testimony for Lord Jesus’ glory and I had done it again and again. Praise and glory to Him who is to come.

Habakkuk 2:2-3 “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”

Hellelujah, Praise the Lord!

The true event came on like a dream. But after examining the whole event. I think it is more than just a dream. So I have to record down accordingly. Praise the Lord, All Glory belongs to Lord Jesus. Amen Addon Notes: Thanks to Jeremy Choy, slightly more than 2 weeks after this article was posted, his message about “Woman in man” somehow answered my question as to why this brother whom I helped to defeat the “Old Man” in him, had many girls in him. Jeremy said “every man has a woman part in them, so if one has too much of woman part in him, he cannot stand up as mighty man. Also, man ought to have some woman part in them so that he can co-relate to woman.

S$1,500 return to me, Praise the Lord

Starting on the first day of Asia Conference, as usual we have offerings. Then second day Pastor Kong Hee was appealing the attendee to pledge S$300 if they can to help the charity organisation.

My thought was, already I had pledge quite a sum in the Arise and Build. So the offering of S$10 or $S20 would be enough. Then next day the amount increased to S$500. Deep inside me, I felt the Holy Spirit is telling to fulfill the offering. By the way, the pledge of Arise and Build had overshoot the target of S$24,000,000 at S$25,000,000 and Pastor Kong Hee announce with great joy that we had done it. Praise the Lord!

Then on Saturday service with Pastor Benny Hinn. He challenged everyone to pledge US$1,000 for the charity. And he said that everytime he get people to do that miracle happened. The money will return to you within 12 days. This time the Holy Spirit within me spoke even more audible “Go, Stanley. Do it.” So, I could not escape this time and I am among the 1st few to reach the Hall 7 stage. Then Pastor Benny Hinn ask all to come to Hall 8 for the Prayer blessing. Wow, first time in my life in EXPO, I ran like a marathon champion. I reached there in double quick time, standing behind those who were already at the side of the stage. I had never forget Pastor Casey Treat’s sermon. “Say things that are not and speak with your mouth as though they were in Prayer.”

Then in a while the night is over and I got home to prepare for Sunday Service.

Surprised telephone call from AIA on Tuesday 28th Nov 2008

Call Center “Hello, hi are you Mr Tan?”

(I can hear her accent, she is a Philiphine lady)

I replied “Yes, I am. What is it regarding?”

Call Center “You have a cheque issued for your matured policy and I need to verify your home address, so that we can sent it to you.”

I replied “Okay sure.”

Call Center “Is your address Blk 320, Yishun Central….”

I replied “No that is no right, that was my old address. How could the office not knowing my address. My new policies are all sent to my current address.”

Call Center “Okay, Sir. Apologised for that. Can you provide your current address so that we can mail this cheque to you.”

I replied “Okay, my address is…….. By the way, how much is the cheque?’

Call Center “The amount is S$1,638…”

I replied “Oh thank you.”

After I had put down the phone, I thanks our Lord Jesus many times, because I have no idea where this cheque come from. Moreover I am currently a Financial Services Consultant with AIA, I had checked with the office and computer system; there was no record of any old policy in my account. So I presumed that I had redeemed all for cash, and thrown all the old policies away. In fact, there are 2 web design jobs on handl in the process of negotiation. So, I thought I would have to spent some effort to seal the web design deal at $1,500 and I can take it that this is the blessing of return of the pledged money, but that would means that I had spent some effort to justify the price to be $1,500. But, look at what our Lord Jesus had done for me, I don’t have to spent any effort to receive the return of the money! I really thanks Abba Father Lord Jesus for this surprise anointing. It was such a PERFECT timing. The date of cheque issue was 10th Sept 2008. I could have received in October, then there is not much for me to thank God for. But the amazing invisible hand of God works wonderfully. He arranged such that it fulfilled the prophency of the pledge money facilitated by Pastor Benny Hinn within 12 days and I recieved it the cheque 7 days! Praise the Lord. Hallelujah!

Asia Conference 2008 Benny Hinn – 7.30pm to 10.30pm

SINGAPORE, 22 NOVEMBER 2008 

Benny Hinn started by asking What do we mean when we said that God is Holy? On the earth, there is no man that is Holy, only God is Holy!
So God is light and light expel darkness. Thus sinners is being expeled in front of God.
In order to have salvation, we must have 4 things:-
1.True salvation requires seeking face to face with Jesus (Seeking the Truth).
2.Personal revelation by the Holy Spirit.
3.Confess him as your Messiah.
4.Confess as Messiah openly in public.

Now is the time for the church to rise up, said Benny Hinn, and in the months ahead, the world will see some of the greatest miracles ever.
And the church is empowered to bring the light of God in the world as His anointing is rained down on His church. But, he said, there is a price to pay for the anointing of God. You must give up self and things that are dear to you. Look at the example of Bible script, story of a rich young man:-
Matthew 19:20-23 The young man said to Jesus, “All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?” Jesus said to him, “if you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and gave to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.”
My personal revelation from our Lord Jesus:-
Even as one has to be sent away to a far away place for mission, when the Holy said ‘Go’ You have to GO. Absolute obedience is so IMPORTANT! I had not forgotten the teaching.
1Timothy 3:4-5 said very clearly about Church Officials “one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence. (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?);
It is unlikely that God would sent you out on mission if you had not taken good care of your own house. By faith, we believe that God will sent angels to comfort, provides and protect the family while we are being sent away for mission. Didn’t Andrew, Peter, James and John immediately left the family to follow Jesus? The love for Jesus and for the people must be so great that you will not look back. All of them had manifested themselves in the great vision that Jesus had told them.
Matthew 4:19 “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
There are many who are slow or even reluctant to immediately follow Lord Jesus, thus their spiritual life enrichment is at very slow pace and worst off, many already suffered stagnation, “The dry bones!” Just look at the classic example of Elisha, he wasn’t make a Prophet until much later because he did not respond to God’s calling through Elijah immediately but delayed because of his reasoning.
1King 19:20 “Elisha left the oxen standing there, ran after Elijah, and said to him, “First let me go and kiss my father and mother good-bye, and then I will go with you!”
We have living example of Christians going on short term mission and even long term mission, away from the family and Lord Jesus had blessed them. I knew many Christians are still procrastinating on Lord Jesus calling because of this “guilt” of leaving the family behind. As I ponder upon this sensitive issue, the Holy Spirit spoke to me. “Look at how fortunate you are. Even you are away to foreign country, you are just a phone call away from your love one. You can also connect to them by email, video phone, VOIP gadgets and you have aircraft that can bring you to places within one day. Going away on mission does not necessary means you abandoned your family? Look at those old testament days, all the disciples don’t even have this privilege of modern day gadget to allow them have contact with their family members and yet they response immediately to Lord Jesus’ calling. Moreover, they walked thousands of miles to places under the hot scorching desert sun!” I have been writing articles about the important of having communion with the Holy Spirit, and showed the classic example of how Lot’s wife looked back (that means unwilling to give up past and materialism) and she died immediately, turned into pillar of salt.
I was very thrilled, when Benny Spoke the exact same message that our Holy Spirit had inspired me to write.
Click or copy to browser Increasing giving of tithe to the House of God. Read “Luke 14:26: If any man come to me, and hate not …. And yet put side by side with Lord Jesus, must be hatred.” WOW! anyway, what I explained were alot more milder 🙂

Benny Hinn said that there will be wealth transfer from the poor to the rich. He cites various bible scripts to show that it had happened in the old testament and it will happen again during this period of difficult time :-
1.Genesis 12:10 “Then Pharaoh gave Abram many gifts because of her sheep, goats, cattle, male and female donkeys, male and female servants, and camels.”
2.Genesis 26:12-13 “When Isaac planted his crops that year, he harvested a hundred times more grain than he planted, for the Lord blessed him. He became a very rich man, and his wealth continued to grow.”
3.Genesis 30:41-43 “Whenever the stronger females were ready to mate, Jacob would place the peeled branches in the watering troughs in front of them. Then they would mate in front of the branches. But he didn’t do this with the weaker ones, so the weaker lambs belonged to Laban, and the stronger ones were Jacob’s. As a result, Jacob became very wealthy, with large flocks of sheep and goats, male and female servants, and many camels and donkeys.”
4.Genesis 41:45-46 “So Joseph took charge of the entire land of Egypt. He was thirty years old when he began serving in the court of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. And when Joseph left Pharaoh’s presence, he inspected the entire land of Egypt.”
5.Exodus 12:34-36 “The Israelites took their bread dough before yeast was added. They wrapped their kneading boards in their cloaks and carried them on their shoulders. And the people of Israel did as Moses had instructed; they asked the Egyptians for clothing and articles of silver and gold. The Lord caused the Egyptians to look favorably on the Israelites, and they gave the Israelites whatever they asked for. So they stripped the Egyptians of their wealth!”
6.1 King 10:21-24 “All of King Solomon’s drinking cups were solid gold, as were all the utensils in the Palace of the Forest of Lebanon. They were not made of silver, for silver was considered worthless in Solomon’s day! The king had a fleet of trading ships that sailed with Hiram’s fleet. Once every three years the ships returned, loaded with gold, silver, ivory, apes, and peacocks. So King Solomon became richer and wiser than any other king on earth. People from every nation came to consult him and to hear the wisdom God had given him. Year after year everyone who visited brought him gifts of silver and gold, clothing, weapons, spices, horses, and mules.”

Thus, this shows that God will always bless his people even in time of famine. Now we are having economic crisis everywhere but God being faithful will bless his people.
Benny Hinn said that anointment will come in 3 dimensions:-
1.David was anointed to win the War against the Goliath.
2.David took over the Kingdom by defeating House of Saul.
3.The anointing of Elisha by Elijah is the 3rd dimension.

Explanation of 3rd anointing. Threat force us to pray more. If you want to receive anointing, you must be called by the Lord. Elijah was called to anoint Elisha. For anointing to happen, you must be ready to be God’s warrior who knows how to wield the Sword and fight. God will not use the timid, God will use the fearless. If you want to be anointed, you must know how to plough the land. Thus then, Elijah place his mantle (stands for cloak of authority) over Elisha. You got to be placed under a mentor.You have to renounce yesterday in order to gain tomorrow.
Here is steps to receive total anointing.:-
1.You has to be called by God.
2.Must be a warrior.
3.Must run with no reluctant.
4.Must be a person who always pray.
5.Serve his ministries.
6.Never look back on past.
7.Serve the mentor. Elisha serves Elijah.
8.Must have Vision.

Debts Canceled, Miracles Revealed (Click here to see CityNews for more … )
Before the miracle filled meeting started, the 9,000-seat hall gathered for a prayer meeting. Fifteen minutes was all it took for Singapore Expo Hall 8 to get filled up, with some attendees queuing as early as 7am this morning.
The crowd did not seem to deter some.
I feel great, and I hope I can bring something back for the church in Indonesia, said Johan Supit, from the GPDI movement in Sumatra.
Although we queued for a long time, it was worth it to get a seat here, and to be part of what’s going on, said Soon Sze Yin, 23, pointing to her seat in the hall.
Palpable anticipation hung in the air as churchgoers wheeled their friends and relatives in, who came expecting a miracle of healing
Throughout the four-and-a-half hour service, the congregation sat riveted, listening intently to Benny as he shared his revelations. Hundreds also filled the aisles to respond to his altar call for those believing for debt cancellation.
One of the highlights of the session was when Benny challenged the congregation to give S$1,500 as an offering amount to get a return harvest in 12 days, something that he has experienced every single time he gives a breakthrough offering amount of US$1,000.
As the givers wrote the phrase “debt cancellation” on the offering envelopes, Benny also encouraged the congregation to believe for a debt-free life in 12 months.
It’s not the amount that God responds to,”Benny emphasized, God responds to faith.”
Truly, without faith, it is impossible to please God, and healing testimonies soon ensued after Benny called out for healings. Deaf ears were opened, fractured ankles and knees were completely healed. These were some of the miracles that changed the lives of many.
Signs and wonders would be commonplace in the months ahead, said Benny. He also encouraged the congregation, especially the pastors, to be willing to pay the price for the anointing of God to carry out these miracles.
“There are times God will test our faith,” he said.
This eighth session of Asia Conference ended on a high. Angela Teo, 18, shared: “I was really encouraged by the sermon by Benny. I really believe God is raising up a new generation of believers and I am just so honoured to be involved in the end time harvest.”

There were some Prophency being mentioned. We have to go by the words of God.
Order of priorities with regard to calling:-
1. God 2. Family Second 3. Job/Ministry
1Thess 5-20-21 “Do not despise prophencies. Test all things; hold fast what is good.”

1TIM 3:4-5 said very clearly about Church Officials “one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence. (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?);

Pastor Christine Pringle share baby brought to heaven

Pastor Christine Pringle – 21st Nov2008 1.00pm to 2.00pm (You can read more by clicking City News, City Harvest Church )

Christine Pringle started with poem she had writtened for her first child, Jesse, whom she had miscarried. Chris shared deeply about dealing with the loss of an infant, a small child through miscarriage, termination or still birth. Her own personal experience was when she was a young woman, barely 20, pregnant with her first child. Chris (and her husband Phil Pringle) ran a home group for youth in their own home at the time. She was about 15 weeks pregnant when she found herself bleeding one day, a day of her home group. Before the youth group arrived at her house, Chris decided to head home and rest. As a young Christian, she thought only good things happened to Christians, so she did not think the bleeding was anything serious. But the bleeding got worse, and “I still remember, the youth were singing praises in the next room, and I was in my bedroom, bleeding, losing my baby.” Chris drew no comfort from people telling her “Maybe it is for the best” or “It is going to be all right.” But peace and assurance came upon her when someone told her, “I believe that God is flushing out your body of all the drugs,” in reference to her previous lifestyle before she came to the Lord. Many, many years later, a friend showed Chris a video of a vision of heaven. After watching the video, she went into her room. There she heard praise and worship, and felt two arms envelope her. Up to that point, she had not grieved for her lost child, but she started crying now. It was as though she was in this incredible bubble where she could just weep and everything was still. She received a vision of a tall, handsome young man with longish hair  and the Lord told her it was her son, Jesse. Heaven, shared Christ, that’s where the babies go when they are lost on Earth. They are rescued by angels and brought into Heaven, where they grow. When she saw Jesse, he was 23 – exactly the age he would be if he had lived. As Chris shared her experience, tears started to well up in the eyes of the audience. The atmosphere was one of comfort and peace, even as women (and men) who had lost their babies wept and grieved. For them, Chris had opened the door to a room which has been closed for years, so that God can bring healing. Her vision is to share her story with the women in China  and at Asia Conference 2008, that was the first step to fulfilling that vision. Picture on the right, you can see her holding 2 prayer cards, pink is for baby girl and blue is for baby boy.

Wow! What a revelation! I had read the Book of Heaven is So Real by Choo Thomas. Pg 39, Choo Thomas mentioned that she went to Heaven and Jesus showed her a room with many babies and Jesus told her that these are baby aborted by their mothers. Jesus said he hate abortion. From this, Ithere was this inspiring thought that we can reach out to parents who had lost their baby due to abortion or miscarriage. So I listened to the Video by Choo Thomas, she mentioned that children who died below age of 6 will be in the safe hand of heaven. So I wanted to reachout to all parents who had lost the child below 6 years old; to tell them that they have hope, the hope of seeing their lost child by accepting Lord Jesus Christ as their saviour. Jesus can help them release their “guilt’ of having lost their baby due to miscarriage or abortion. Perhaps, many are living with this guilt unknowingly throughout their live. But I wasn’t not sure if this is really a correct approach or not. Thanks and praise to Our Lord Jesus. This is a revelation by Christine Pringle. Yes, we can bring hope and salvation to parents. As the bible said “whatever is loosen in earth will also be loosen in heaven”. Likewise, whatever is lost on earth will be found in Heaven. Then, I started to wonder as to why the age wasn’t writtened in the book, Heaven is So Real. I needed an answer. Since the past few sessions has been talking about Babylon System, I wanted to do a research on this subject. Using search engine by typing “Babylon System” I just couldn’t believe my eyes that the answer was found in an article, it says that “Children will be brought to heaven if they die before they reach accountable age.” This is quite true since different child would have accountable thought at different age of their live. That means, individually, they would have different level of thoughts and at that point where they are able to differential between right or wrong and are able to make a decision whether to accept Jesus Christ or not; they become accountable. With this revelation, I think more appropriate is this “Children who a 6 years old and below or have not reach accountable age will be brought to heaven by Angels if they die.” With this final piece of Jig-saw puzzle in place, we can safely reach out to parents who had lost a child due to miscarriage or abortion. Go and tell them “Their baby is in the safe in Heaven. They can hinge their hope on Our Lord Jesus. Let Lord Jesus grant the release of their guilt.” Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

Increasing giving of tithe to the House of God

Increasing giving of tithe to the House of God

Note to reader: It is interesting to read the testimony of people who had gone to heaven and hell. Please do not take it as the theological replacement for bible in any context. As long as there is truth in it and consistent with biblical teaching, it is better to believe while enjoying. Being a writer for “One Man’s Vision is another’s Man illusion” I care to believe these spoken words by the authors. It is our privilege to be able to read this message because we have brothers and sisters who willingly risked their life to take the journey to Heaven and Hell in their “Transformed body” with Lord Jesus. There are people who does OBE and lost their live, of course, likely they practiced sorcery without Our Lord Jesus’ guidance.

Tithe is offering of one tenth of your produce to God. Before we talk about giving tithe to house of God, let’s talk about why it is compulsory to give.

Actually some Christian do not pay tithe at all. Here is important message Jesus said to a Servant of God who went to Heaven:-

FOURTH MESSAGE by Brani Duyon @ Efendie from Sabah, East Malaysia in May 2006: You can read the whole testimony by Clicking Choo Thomas Urgent messages

“Tell My Children, they must be obedient to give tithe and offerings. While Jesus gave this message, He said My child, look there” He showed me beautiful houses which are ready for His children. My child, these houses are ready, I prepared for all My children, that believe and are obedient to Me. “Then He showed me the houses which are not yet completed. I ask Lord, why these house are not yet completed? “Lord Jesus said My child, these houses belong to my children that not generous giving tithe and offerings. These houses will be ready and completed after My children give more tithe and offerings to My House.”

God, who is the creator of universe don’t need gold nor silver. By his words, he can create anything he want at his will.

Then why ask of God’s people to give tithe?

It is really a test of your heart.

If you do not tithe, it is because your heart is bonded to the love of money. It is very difficult for you to part with something that you love, the money. As a matter of fact, some people loved money so much that it had become an integral part of their body. The arms and hands became a dollar note; and their legs also became dollar note. We have new breed of funny man, and also their face become money face, all they talk is money money. Ask them to put offering or tithe to Church, they would said that they can’t do it! It is too painful because money had becomes part of their body. Believe me, these group of people are very willing to spent thousands of dollar for lustful enjoy over food and entertainment while being asked to give out small amount to bless someone, they will hold back because it was too painful for them to gives.

Matt 5:20 “And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”

Here is the story of a rich young man who wanted to have eternal life:-

Mattew 19:20-23 The young man said to Jesus, “All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?” Jesus said to him, “if you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and gave to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.” But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possesions. Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.”

Paying tithe is the test for your heart and soul, whether you have absolute obedient or not.

Disobeying God will leads one to lose his or her rights to be a resident in Kingdom of Heaven.

Once, a new Christian asked me if giving tithe is compulsory. Then, I told him that if he gave with unwilling heart, God will not accept the tithe and he might as well keep it. Remember King Saul? He kept the best Ram from Amalekites as offer to God but was rejected because he disobeyed God. God commanded him to destroy everything! Even if the offering is the best, God will not accept if you are not obedient.

All of us must understand, giving tithe is the blessing of a tenth of your produce to God but God bless you with the other 90% for you to keep. Do you agreed that Lord Jesus is our best business man of the whole universe? If you can recall the bible passage. He told the fishermen “Cast your net to the right and you will catch a multitude of fishes.” True enough, the fishermen obeyed Jesus and they caught such a multitude of fishes that the net can’t hold. In fact this is the message that moved me to be reborn again on 2nd Dec 2007. Isn’t Lord Jesus your best business partner? Where on earth can you find a business partner in this world that do most of the work for you and yet he takes only 10% for tithing while you get to keep the other 90%?

Love for God must be so extreme that other things must be a hatred when put side by side. There is no comparison! God, Our Lord Jesus had perfectly love for everyone and is not bias and it is so absolute that he gave out his own life for everyone so that all shall not perished but lived.

Got a question for you, if you have something that you hate very much, would you keep it in your heart as treasure? Definitely not!

Read this,

Luke 14:26: If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters,yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

Many people would think that this bible script is very controversial such that they psychologically “tear” this part of the bible off in order not to read it. Please don’t! The writing of bible scripts has been inspired by the Holy Spirit from Genesis to Revelations. Love for God must be absolute. Putting side by side between loving God and family, because of Jesus’ extreme perfect love, all things becomes hatred. There is no comparison! Our perfection, put side by side with Jesus becomes imperfection!

Just like by the Sea of Galilee, Simon and Andrew followed Jesus, leaving his family members behind. This action was seen as hatred for the family because they chose to follow Jesus instead.

Mark 1:16-17 Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishersmen. And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.

Many who had loved their family very much would not followed Jesus. Understand this; we are not saying that you must not love your parents, family members or friends. And yet when put love for family side by side with Lord Jesus, it must be hatred. Love God and loving people fervently is utmost important.

Many newly reborn christians and the worst off dormant christians do not know how to co-relate God as their sovereign father. When needed answer to their problem, who would they turn to? Most likely, they will not hesitate to call someone senior then them, their leader. Lord Jesus once asked Pastor Alex Abraham (from Indonesia, Pastor of GDI with 130,000 member), “Where is my address?” He answered “Sitting on the Right hand side of throne in heaven.” Jesus said “No, that is not right, I am in you!” Many couldn’t speak to Jesus in prayer as the first person to contact when they are in trouble because they DO NOT have intimate relationship with him through the Holy Spirit. If one can’t love our Lord Jesus to the extreme, such that all things become hatred, then it is hard for one to believe that Lord Jesus will actually speak to them. They will continue to make other people their First love, the first call to their rescue. The worst off situation is that they use the easy way out and unintentionally idolize some leader. There are some success story of leader giving good guidance (those who are spirit minded) but we have raving wolfs who are operated by the Shadow of Darkness in Sheep outfit, they gives instructions that leads the individual to destruction. So, Friends, the only safe way is Jesus’ way. HE MUST BE YOUR FIRST LOVE, the first person to call when you’re in trouble. Understand this, we are not saying that you should not consult your ordained spiritual leader for certain issues. We are saying Jesus must be your first consultant. Occasionally, you will be guided by the Holy Spirit to talk to someone of your problem, thus fulfilling the Law of Christ, fellowshipping by sharing burden.

Gal 6:2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Certainly, I have been trying to fully understand the revelation message by Pastor Kong Hee on 28/09/2008; that “We should not be adding assets to generate profit and then increase the tithe offering.”

Det 8:6-7 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him. For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills.

The above Bible script tells us that our job is to keep the commandments of God, Our Lord Jesus. Walk his ways, and to fear him. Then God will bring you to the land of abundant.

Keeping the commandments, it appeared as easy since they are all written in Biblem but not so.

Walk his ways, and to fear Him. This seems problematic for all. How do you know which way to walk and how to fear someone whom you had not seen nor hear? Jesus said he is the way and the life. When he ascended to the throne after resurrection, he gave to us the anointing of the Holy Spirit who will teach us ALL THINGS.

John 14:16 “But the helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you All THINGS.”

So it is crystal clear. One has to be in daily walk with the Holy Spirit. He is our direct connection to God. Many Christians had grieved the Holy Spirit by not being obedient to his inner voice. If you have the Holy Spirit in you, then giving tithe is natural.

All things must be arranged by Our Lord Jesus so that you will be blessed. Below is some true story:-

The Gardener leave workplace due to hurts

I was once in this work place, just simply put as garden. The Manager, The Gardener, suddenly decided to leave for another job. I was really disturbed spiritually because every morning I came to work early and prayed for everyone from 8am to 8.30am, even empty seats were being prayed for God’s protection that all Angels shall sit on the empty chair leaving no room for the shadow of darkness to occupy. The Lord answered my prayer, the sick were healed and getting better and sales results were astoning, but I stopped the prayer for 3 days, wondering why the Gardener had to leave. I recalled once I was moved wrote a message to her “God’s Work must continue” somewhere Dec 2007. Then Lord Jesus arranged 4 persons to speak to me. With the discerning ability and God’s wisdom, it has been concluded that she was very hurt by the inaction of the people there. That is to say, that she turn the eyeballs inward to look at herself “I had done so much, and sacrifices and yet they can’t compromise with my good intention of giving a treat.” The decision to leave the Garden suddenly is due to her hurts. Then, she had a sharing with us that she had found a job with perfect number match. I don’t know why, I just felt something wrong with this statement. Then on Monday morning, while in prayer, our Holy Spirit spoke to me ‘BEWARE OF PERFECT NUMBER MATCH” As usual, I would asked 2 questions, “What do you mean, Lord? What do you want me to do?” Very often, the Holy Spirit would inspire me to write it down. Thus with this revelation, it give me the understanding that when you are hurts, you do a drastic action such as this case, changing of job. You will not be blessed because it is your action. (NOT ARRANGED BY GOD, OUR LORD JESUS.) Actions arise from hurts would birth to bad undivine happening. She gotten sick easily, I felt that she wasn’t happy at the new work place. It is good thing that she no longer works there.

Click this Perfect Number match, is it from God?

Business people venturing into market place must seek God’s wisdom and direction. Or else they could get themselves into possible trouble. They are like chasing after the wind and in the end catches nothing. Read this article Man seeking wisdom

In conclusion, love God fervently and do his Will and all these things (assets) shall be added onto you. Where, you will have abundant and you can increase the tithe. Constantly sing praise to God for his grace and glory.

Friends, many had been blessed with abundant because they are willing to be in complete obedient to the voice of our Holy Spirit. Choo Thomas was given new car and bigger house though she objected because she was already been very comfortable with what she have. We have a testimony of our church member on stage recently, that he cried because his leader advice him not to take up the$10K/month job because he would not be able to attend church oversea. He was blessed with another job in Singapore that is double blessing instead. If you have testimony of being blessed with abundant, Email to sa278@hotmail.com and I would like to put up in this Esharing Portal, to extend the blessing to many people 24/7.

Friends, remember. DO NOT test God’s patience. The only things you are allowed to test God is tithing. Read this script:-

Mal 3:10: Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

Many like to do things according to their hearts’ desires and said that it is from God. This is like clothing oneself with garment and claim to be from God, layers after layers. God will remove any unauthorised Garment!

Read this script to understand what Garment is right with God, Two nakedness mentioned in Bible

Last Monday, 27th Oct 2008, I received this revelations that “God is transferring the wealth from the rich to the poor” So, if the riches was not approved by God, you may loose it. Those want to have abundants must have God’s wisdom and must have the ability to listen to Lord Jesus’ commandment. You try to catch fish whole day but ended up nothing much. But hearing Jesus’ voice “Cast your net to the RIGHT side of boat” you will catch a magnitude of Fishes, such that the net can’t hold. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord.

Early bird catches the worm

“On Monday 6 March 2006, I was woken by my alarm clock at 0530. I started to pray and realized that there was a heavy anointing on me. My body was very weak and I was trembling; waves of electricity were going through my body.
In the afternoon, as I was lying on my bed, I saw a brilliant light filling the room. I saw tiny, white, round beads, the size of a pin-head.
The beads were falling like rain and would sink into my skin on contact. In addition, I saw a cloud of something like white mist coming from above; it also filled the room and sank into my skin on contact. Thereafter, I saw Jesus walking towards me in the midst of a cloud of mist. He sat down on His chair next to my bed. I have no idea where this chair comes from; it usually appears as soon as He is ready to sit. It is a beautiful chair made of solid gold; the shape looks similar to most chairs but with back support. On each leg is a silver star; a similar but larger star is also on the back support. There are round wheels on each leg.
Jesus greeted me and stretched out His hand to me and told me to get up because time was fast running out. He pulled me up by my hand and I sat down on my bed.
Then he said to me, “Victoria, let us pray.” He prayed in a language that I did not understand; I understood only the word ‘Amen’. Then He continued by asking me what I was seeing and I told Him that I was seeing groups of people going to their work and others arriving at their work places. I was also seeing those similar tiny white beads falling on those who arrived first at their work places. After the first group, another group also arrived later. By that time the rain of tiny beads had stopped falling.
I also saw different groups of people, arriving at different churches on a Sunday morning. The rain of white beads would begin to fall as soon as the early comers enter the churchyard. It continued to fall for some time and then it stopped. The latecomers would not find anything.
Jesus asked me whether I understood what those visions meant and I told Him that I did not understand. Then He explained to me: “These visions mean that every place where you are supposed to be at a specified time and you know what time you should be there, there are always angels distributing blessings for that specified time. If you arrive on time, you will receive your blessings but if you are late, you will miss your blessings for that day because the angels distribute the blessings only for that specific time. Victoria, I want to warn you because you go late for work and you go especially late to church services. You must know that at those times you have been late without any valid reason; you have forever missed out on your blessings for those days; they will never return to you again. Victoria you must stop this thing and do not ever do it again, unless you have a valid reason for being late.”
When the Lord said those words I really wished I could disappear or give Him some acceptable excuses for my indiscipline. I told Him that sometimes I oversleep but He looked me straight in the eye and said that I was lying and that I had a bad tendency of going back to bed after I have woken up, to succumb to a desire to sleep for a ‘few more minutes’.
After Jesus had warned me, He said, “Stand up. Let us go. Time is fast running out and there are things we must do.”

Friends, this revelation by Victoria encouraged me to be early. As explained by Our Lord Jesus, truely all people who are early received showers of blessings. You know, there is a saying “Early bird catches the worm” Yes, wouldn’t you want to be the one who catches many fat and juicy worms in the morning dew? While those who came later will catch scattered worms that is skinny and not so active because of late scorching morning sun. So, you want the best for yourself, BE EARLY.
Just like in any workplace, your boss will be very appreciative of you if you are the earliest for any meeting. Being early, you can arrange chair or even spray some freshen anti odour fragrant for all to enjoy; a good testimony for our Lord Jesus indeed.
Your Boss will reward you if you continue to be early for everything. Also people who tends to leave jobs to the last minute will not be able to a good job! How much more our Lord Jesus will bless you if you can be early for church service.
While I was working in a Bank, I always encourage the latecomer to plan to come to work at least 30 minutes earlier, in this way, even there is delay of 15 mins for last minute ICI makeup or missing the transport, you still be 15 mins early. Those who plan to reach “On Time”, 90% of the time, they will be late due to some unforeseen delay or habitual “last minutes” things to do. Before, every Sunday morning, I tends to play with my computer for some web design work. Though, I wasn’t late, arrived church 10 to 15 mins before service,I don’t have enough time to edify myself and pray for others.

It is a real priviledge to be early, why?
Firstly, as shared by Victoria, I received early morning blessing by the Angels.

Secondly, I can do the small task of booking seats for my cell group.
(As of 14/10/2011, NOT ALLOW anymore due unhappy incident, ALL MEMBERS WILL COME AT SAME TIME AND GO IN TOGETHER)

 

Thirdly, it is a priviledge to be able to pray for other people, especially pastors and church members.

Finally, I can edify myself and prepare the Spirit man in me to receive the rhema from Sermon.
Being spiritually alert, the Holy Spirit can help me to be more sensitive towards the Words of Knowledge and Wisdom from the Sermon and speech from invited speakers. It is truly an anointing and blessing from Lord Jesus. Hallelujah!

It is good to be early for everything.  “On the seventh day they rose early at daybreak and marched around the city as usual, only on that day they compassed the city seven times.” Joshua 6:15  Being early, Joshua, the priests and the people prepared the ground and brought down the wall of Jericho with a shout!

Cling, Clonk, Clank not allowed on mission

Cling, Clonk, Clank not allowed on mission.

This must be the weirdest title anyone had seen in their lifetime. Try saying cling, clonk, clank aloud. How does it sound? Noisy, that must have sounded like pots and pans knocking one another. You must be wondering why I chose this title. Don’t ask me actually; ask my partner, the HS. He inspired me to use this title to amplify the danger of bringing cling, clonk, clank while on mission. What mission are we talking about? What is the cling, clonk, clank?
Mission in accordance to Oxford dictionary means “1. a particular task or goal assigned to a person or group. 2. a military or scientific operation or expedition for a particular purpose. 3. a body of persons sent, esp. to a foreign country, to conduct negotiations, etc. 4. a body sent to propagate a religious faith. 5. a particular course or period of preaching, services, etc.”
Christian normally associates mission with missionary. But today we are not talking about any missionary or any specific task. We generally talk about task that was being inspired by the Holy Spirit to the individual or group. It can be a mission to accomplish some spiritual goal, task such as deliverance service, prophecy role or even to be a messenger for God, writing books, mission trip, etc.
Those who are faithful to God, Our Lord Jesus will have abundant in their life. I have been pondering in prayer, asking our Lord, why is it that I was not getting the abundant. No matter how I tried, I am just getting “just enough” for my needs.

Det 8:6-7 “Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him. For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills.”

God will help those who help themselves. Heard of these familiar quotes by Charles Reade:-
“Sow a thought, and you reap an act; Sow an act, and you reap a habit; Sow a habit, and you reap a character; Sow a character, and you reap a destiny”
Without putting a thought into action, you reap nothing. So I asked Lord Jesus in Prayer as to why I’ve been trying to bring myself to the land of abundant and yet not getting it. Then, I received this revelation “that I am on missions.” Obviously, one of my mission is to write for the Lord. Honestly, my grammar wasn’t good but recording the message is also very important, it must be complete and accurate. Perhaps some good soul can help me up with my English.
God’s message, vision or dream are like manna dropped from heaven, without consuming it on the same day and digest it completely would be useless if rolled to next day where it will becomes spoil and turn sour.
So I asked again in prayer “Why on mission, I cannot have abundant?”
I was thus guided by our Partner, the Holy Spirit to Bible two passages.

PASSAGE NO.1
1 King 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.”
Prophet Elijah was supernaturally feed by the Raven by brook Cherith. At that time, there has been no rain in the land. And soon after a while, the brook dried up. Elijah wasn’t allowed to bring anything excess for him because he was on an important mission. Elijah was tasked to meet a Widow and to perform two miracles.

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 widow did as commanded by Elijah that she gave him cake that was poisoned. She had flour that was not used up nor did the jar of oil run dries. And she could prepare thousands of meal, all because she is willing to listen and obey Elijah. The other miracle that Elijah performed was raised her son from dead. This was such an important mission. If Elijah had abundant of water and food, he wouldn’t have asked the Widow for anything, and that would had jeopardized the mission. Moreover Elijah would not had asked for it as he was told that it was poisoned. God provided Elijah “just enough” for his journey. Elijah wasn’t allowed to bring the extra “Cling, clonk, clank” to have more than enough to distract him from doing the will of god. Nor allowing him to have these “extras” to make him lusts over enjoyment of abundant and tends to neglect the important mission. Just like entering tabernacle (entering into a holy mission), one must not drink wine else he will die. Wine stands for enjoyment (or anything that is above the amount that is provisioned by god for the mission).

Levi 10:9: “Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:”

Having understood this message our heavenly father provided, I came to understand that while embarking on a mission or missions we do NOT possess excess “Cling, Clonk, Clank” which would alert the enemy of god. And the enemy (shadow of darkness), being aware, would creates temptation of lust for god’s people to fall into his trap. This is a true spiritual warfare that one should be having “just enough” in order to stay alert and fully understand the commandment from God, Our Lord Jesus, lest he or she would become snobbish and lusts for enjoyment of abundant. Upon accomplishment of mission or missions, God being faithful will reward the servant of god two, three or even five folds of his or her assets.

PASSAGE NO.2
Mattew 10:9-10 “Provide neither gold nor silver nor copper in your money belts, nor bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staffs; for a worker is worthy of his food.”

Lord Jesus gave specific instructions to his disciples that they bring just sufficient with no ?extras?
Another way to look at, is that being on mission, like a warrior of God, and he or she must be dressed and equipped appropriately.

Eph:6:13 -17 “Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:”

Warrior of god, with the whole armor of God being worn, definitely have no room for the extra “cling, clonk, clank”. Lest it come in the way and prevent the individual from carrying out an effective warfare.
Upon return from a successful warfare, a successful mission, then the warrior shall have the abundant and he or she shall celebrate with the clinging of glass for drinking celebration, clonking of pots for cooking up of good food for celebration and clanking of plates for having meals served for celebration. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord.

Addon notes 2/1/2009 my heartest thanks to Sun Ho, Pastor Kong Hee’s wife for pointing out Eccles 3:11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time.” With this I discovered the Bible verse that I was looking for Eccles 3:1-9 “Everything has its time” Eccles 3:13 “and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labour – it is the gift of God.” Celebrate with the sound of Cling, Clonk, Clank! Wonderful, Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

End Notes:

I sincerely hope that, many of you probably had the same or similar experience. Share with us your experience. While on Mission, do you experience any thing exciting. And on completing mission how and what our Lord Jesus had rewarded you with. Share in this Portal to extend your blessing to others. Don’t keep manna to yourself. If I can have enough testimony, I may publish a book based on this and your name will be prominently displayed. God Bless You.

Consequences of not doing 100% job for God and fearing man

Consequences of not doing 100% job for God and fearing man.

Samuel, the Prophet had given the clear mission to King Saul, that is to utterly destroyed all the people, man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass. In fact everything that is in the Cities of Amalekites.

1Samuel 15:1-6 “Samuel also said unto Saul, The LORD sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the LORD. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt. Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass. And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah. And Saul came to a city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley. And Saul said unto the Kenites, Go, depart, get you down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them: for ye shewed kindness to all the children of Israel, when they came up out of Egypt. So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites.
1Samuel 15:7-26 “And Saul smote the Amalekites from Havilah until thou comest to Shur, that is over against Egypt. And he took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword. But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly. Then came the word of the LORD unto Samuel, saying, It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night. And when Samuel rose early to meet Saul in the morning, it was told Samuel, saying, Saul came to Carmel, and, behold, he set him up a place, and is gone about, and passed on, and gone down to Gilgal. And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him, Blessed be thou of the LORD: I have performed the commandment of the LORD. And Samuel said, What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear? And Saul said, They have brought them from the Amalekites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed. Then Samuel said unto Saul, Stay, and I will tell thee what the LORD hath said to me this night. And he said unto him, Say on. And Samuel said, When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the LORD anointed thee king over Israel? And the LORD sent thee on a journey, and said, Go and utterly destroy the sinners the Amalekites, and fight against them until they be consumed. Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the LORD, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the LORD? And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites. But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gilgal. And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king. And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice. Now therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship the LORD. And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.”

King Saul had a great mission with the blessing from God but instead, he decided to do a 90% job by sparing King Agar and also let his people took spoil, sheep and oxen. What went wrong? What was the thought of King Saul? Is King Saul a good leader? Unfortunately, he failed to be a good leader. There was no control over his people, he failed to enforce God’s commandment and he spared King Agar’s life because of his fear of people.
See paragraph 1Samuel 15:24 “And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.”
Doing a mission as commanded by God’s requires absolute obedience. There is no room allowed for distractions or unspirit mindedness. Perhaps the people were saying to King Saul that he must be benevolent in order to be a good King. And perhaps, the people suggested to King Saul to keep best ram for God and with these ‘Good sacrifices” they thought God will be pleased. Unfortunately, that was the disastrous mistake committed by King Saul. Instead of fearing God by being Spirit minded, he had chosen to fear man.

Likewise in our daily walk with Holy Spirit. We maybe given a mission from God. It doesn’t matter if it is big or small. You’ll have the entire battle plan. But along the way, there are other Christians who aren’t Spirit minded. Seeking guidance from them maybe a grave mistake. They could only advice based on their past experience, or their logical thinking or with their academical knowledge and they want to impose onto you of their solution, rather then God’s given solution. It happened many times. We have to be steadfast on our faith, never let temptations of the unspirited minded Christian influence you or worst case scenario some obeyed the Human Authority. We have to be careful to ensure that we are God fearing always and with the help of our partner, the Holy Spirit we can complete any mission 100% for Kingdom of Heaven.

NO GOOD SACRIFICE CAN ATONE FOR THE SINS OF DISOBEYING GOD. Just like King Saul, God rejected his “Good Offerings”. In fact, this Sharing Portal is one of the various missions I embarked on. After it had been agreed upon in prayer. The unspirited man informed the other person and I received a call in middle of night, nearing 11pm, saying over my mobile with a cold steel voice,“You are trying to do the Web Site, NOT APPROVED!” Without sparing some time to neither find out the purpose of this Web portal mission nor provide with reasons as to why this ESharing Portal should not be published, he disapproved of it. Where is the Fruit of Love and caring? In the testimony, I already mentioned that all the my web sites, I already pledged to be under our Lord Jesus’ care and blessing when I was reborn on 2nd Dec 2007. I am so glad that I had chosen to fear God instead of the man. I prayed for blessing 0f 30,000 readerships in 6 months after launch, but was blessed with 42,000 readership. Today, it reached readership of more than 52,000 (as of 5/1/2011 more than 168,000). We also received many encouraging feedback. We have Christians saying that they want to attend Church more often to get closer to Lord Jesus after reading the posted articles. The greatest blessing that I personally received is from Sister Laura, she published a review on “Heaven is So Real by Choo Thomas”. I borrowed the book and while reading, many revelations came showering onto me, especially the revelation of my wife’s dream, about Salvation for my family. Without this ESharing Portal, what my life would have been? Definitely I can’t reach out and sharing the blessing with 50,000 people 24/7. Hallelujah Praise the Lord! I really thank and sing praises to everyone who reads and support this portal. Let’s be a cheerful GIVERS of blessings and do this spiritual battle together to win more souls as a body of Christ. Warming the hearts of those who has been away from Church. Sign up as Authors and wanting to share your blessings. God bless you. There are others, like words of prophecy written in parables already come to past. The Church emphasized a lot on DNA of Lord Jesus. If one can’t write parables, at least understand the parables in the Bible.

Here are some facts that I had discovered, Christians who don’t do 100% job for any God’s mission or task will continue to decline in percentage of job completion because their mindset is ambivalent, always giving in to man and also easily distracted. They will do things halfway and jump onto something else, which they thought, is more important. Thus, never complete a single task given to them. Worst off, these temptations of trying to do something else “More Important” is the work of the Devil, because the Devil wants to destroy all God’s work. It will come to a time where the Christian will ended up doing ZERO God’s work. Ambivalent minded people cannot do God’s work!!!

Whereas, those Christians who are spirit minded, letting the Holy Spirit takes full control of their actions are very focus and always complete God’s mission 100%. The faithful one will receive their reward from Kingdom of Heaven two, three or even five folds, Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

“For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he may have enough to finish it; lest perhaps, after he has laid the foundation and is not able to finish, all those seeing begin to mock him, saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish” Luke 14:28-30

There are two costs that needed to be counted before commencing any work; monetary cost and time cost. Time is the most important factor. You can have alot of money but if you do not have time, you can’t finish any job as in this physical world we are limited by time! Can you stop the earth from spinning like Superman? No You Can’t!

Count your cost before starting work

Pray for Gift of Wisdom and Discernment to be able to discern between whether the mission is from God or not.

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.

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!

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.”
