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?);
