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.”

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
