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.”

Power of Prayer with Holy Spirit

Two weeks back was very blessed message by Rev. Dr Kim Sunghae.

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

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

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

**ADDED NOTES 05/05/08

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

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

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

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

Service on 30/03/08

Ambivalence – Simultaneous contradictory attitudes or feelings

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

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

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

Procrastination – Maybe do it tomorrow.

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

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

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

John 3:16

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

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

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

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

Here is the Sunday Sermon.

THE IMPORTANT OF PRAYER.

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

The Sermon: –

Book of 1 Chronicles 4:19

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

1. Blessing from God.

2. Enlarge his Territory.

3. Hand of God.

4. God to keep him from Evil.

God answered his Prayer.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The place of Sanctuary worship Lord Jesus Christ

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

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

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

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

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

The angels had lifted my soul into a journey

So peaceful, silent and smooth is the journey

My hair is being combed gentling through the thin air

There, we landed onto the land of the Prairie

I knew 2 Angels has been guiding me

I see not their faces nor body nor hear their voice

On the huge land, where there are no buildings

I can see green, green grass with yellow flowers everywhere

I see warm daylight; it is neither morning nor afternoon

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

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

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

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

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

Oh Lord Jesus, thank you for bringing me here

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

Added note 28th Oct 2008

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

Revelations

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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