What will be my last words?

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

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

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

What last words people may had lamented?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lord Jesus’ last words at being crucified onto the cross

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

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

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

What do you think will be your last words?

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

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

The Composite Churches

THE COMPOSITE CHURCH

What is the meaning of composite church?

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

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

The letters follow a general sevenfold pattern:

A greeting. To the angel of the church.

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

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

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

A charge to repent or a warning.

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

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

Chapter 2

To the angel of the church of Ephesus write.

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

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

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

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

Jesus now gives three steps to recovery:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chapter 3

To the angel of the church in Sardis write.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

To the angel of the church in Laodiceans write.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Summary, please stop and do some self examination:-

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

For individual, especial those running as Cell Group leader.

Do you practice mind control?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do you find yourself bearing the spiritual fruit?

1.Love

2.Joy

3.Peace

4.Patient Endurance

5.Kindness

6.Goodness

7.Faith and Faithfulness

8.Gentleness

9.Self-Discipline

(Galatians 5:22-23)

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

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

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

THE NUMBERS ARE NEARING, WHERE IS THY PLACE OF WORSHIP?

The Vision is clear, our place of worship shall have massive structures

Many rows of seats that looked like staircases

The altar shall be at the center place of focus, opening to the sky

The children of God is nearing prophesied numbers

The pledge of fund is fulfilling soon

Grief is that the location is not correctly known yet

I saw Angels trails dancing and flying above the Seats

One is in deep Red, the other is in Gold

The Red is not with fiery flame as it should be

The Gold is not with glittering Gold as it should be

Our Angels of God is not joyful flying in circle

The place is to be, is where the Angels must rejoice

Our Angels must be able to burn with glorious flame and glittering Gold

Then the Red Angel trail Opened a box and inside it looked like Bun with sausage in between

The place is to be where our Angels can fly right out to the sea for a Victorious return (1)

For our almighty God of armies shall win countless battle against the pair of rising horns (2)

Many lost souls will be redeemed into God’s kingdom with our stretched out hands

The house of God shall have immediate openned arms to welcome redeemed souls brought home by our angels

The power of Prayer from Servants of God will have stretching hands pointing against the horns, defeating its evil power

The place is to be is where the sea breeze can blow right into the House of God (1)

For the market place shall be NOT built by mankind (2)

But it will be built by our God Almighty, Lord Jesus

A venue that has not been touch by man but built by our Lord Jesus

A brand new market place, created and name after the house of God (3)

There will be no obstacles to disrupt transportation of Servants to worship God, even the waterway can be the direct assess to our place of worship. (4)

The place is to be is where the fund can fulfill sooner than expected (5)

For the House of God must be ready before the number of is reached.

Let this be understood by the choosen wise man of God

Hallelujah, praise the Lord.

PERFECT NUMBER MATCH, IS IT FROM GOD?


PERFECT NUMBER MATCH, IS IT FROM GOD?
(Revelations from Our Lord 11/02/08 5.30am)

While in prayer, I have this revelation “Don’t be deceived by perfect number match!”
As I Probe further for the exact meaning, answers start sprouting out within me

The Satan will try to lure the Children of God away by temptation of winning lottery.
“Come, come, I gave you perfect number match, 4D number you can buy to get rich”
Some may think that this is a one time opportunity, only one time sin.
But unfortunately, the indulgence in this sin is opening oneself to gain more greed.
Greed, don’t come from God, it is from Satan, bringing downfall of man to the shadow of darkness.
As the fallen individual may have won lottery, he would want more, worshipping the Devil even more
The light in the the person is being extinguished in no time, walking the path of darkness.

I am glad and grateful to our Lord Jesus for his Salvation, that HE helped me passed the test
Wednesday, 20th Feb 2008. A colleague called me in the middle of night to said my Station number won lottery.
But I have absolutely no feeling of regreting not participating in this lottery greed
Praise the Lord for having cleansed my Soul and Mind, I have no greed for such materialistic gain.

As I ponder further in my prayer, the other number match that the Devil is good at deceiving is remuneration.
“Come, come, this is what you Prayed for, I can provide you the pay that you asked for”
Beware, brothers and sisters. God, our Lord Jesus always provide more than what you asked for, especially remuneration
Number matching in remuneration is like the matching of 4D. The Satan is a good deceitor, a liar.
So brothers and sisters, don’t be fooled by this temptation of Number match claiming to be from God
God, our Lord love His Children, He will provides more than what you asked for in prayer.
Of course, some of us may not be convinced of what is being writtened here, you can ask yourself some questions

Q1. When did you first come into contact with the matching number?
Q2. Does the matching number come to you when you were emotionally down, envy, jealous, greed or vengence?
Q3. Does this job switch stop you from continuing God’s work in current workplace?
Q4. Does this new job brings you away from being with God, worshipping Him?
Q5. Does this new job requires you to do more immorality?
Q6. Does this new job help you to be more smooth flow in your spiritual life routine?

If you can answer Q1, you can find out the root cause of problem.
Any of the human decision in Q2 is at risk because the Devil is able to attack the weakness of the individual.
Obviously, Q3, stopping God’s work is forbidden. God, our Lord is not being Edified. His work has to be continued.
If yes to Q4, obviously, the evil one is bringing you further away from God, our Lord Jesus. Otherwise if the new job gives you more time to worship God, then it is alright.
If yes to Q5, Obviously committing sins is not pleasing to the eyes of God, Our Lord Jesus
If there is disruptions, many obstacles, your prayer to ease this burden is not being answered, you falls sick easily, it seems that you are not protected by God, our Lord Jesus, then it is time to quit this JOB! This is Q6.
Some may argue that, these temptation, disruptions, obstacles is the test from GOD. I could only pray for Brothers and Sistes who feels this way,
I pray that whoever it is shall have the Gift of Discernment and Wisdom to help the individual make wise decision.

The following are SAFE number match from God, our Lord Jesus
Date of an Event.
Birth date of a person.
Mostly date.
Mobile, telephone number.
Building, unit number.
Other items and event that must be of definite number match.

One man’s Vision is another man’s illusion

One man’s Vision is another man’s illusion

Introduction

Vision from God, Our Lord Jesus is Sacred, DO NOT share with anyone unless the person is Spiritually connected or Right with you, who will doeth the Vision together with you. Be careful with God, Our Lord Jesus given Vision. We have great Spiritual Responsibilities!!

Pastor Kong Hee once mentioned in the sermon “Do not share your vision with anyone else because it is very personal with God unless they are meant to be part of the vision. It is given by God to you so that you can accomplished the Vision in Jesus name. The reason why you can’t share vision with other people is because they will say thing to discourage you and worst they may carry out actions to prevent you from completing the vision. Another problem is that people may steal your Vision.”
Also if the Vision is meant for more than one person to accomplish together, God, our Lord Jesus will reveal to all the choosen people and they will all agreed to whatever decision arise from the COMMON VISION.
In this writeup, we’re using the Christmas Challenge to illustrate how a Vision is being perceived and eventually emerged as a reality, though not a perfect example but lesson can be learned from here.

Chapter 1 – Shaping up a Vision Last Christmas, ie. 2007.

My work place ABN AMBRO BANK throw a Christmas challenge to all department. Immediately I had a Vision that our department will win this challenge. Yes, a tall Christmas Tree using recycle material, reaching up to touch the ceiling of our department (Insurance). With limited time, of less then 2 weeks, I really have to get permission to get it started. There was some delay in authorising the starting of this work. Perhaps at that time our management aren’t clear about the Vision or very engrossed in their planning. Then barely a week to go, our management finally authorised me to carry out the work, the Christmas Tree. Many of my colleague were completely blurred about this Vision that I am talking about. Once during the morning briefing, I told boldly in front of them “The Vision is clear we will win this Christmas Challenge. The $500 Gift Hamper will be Ours!” Everyone was so excited and clapped hand but the excitement died down so soon on the next day. I drove my car and move everything that I can find in my store. Most important item is the IKEA iron Rod that was meant for hanging of Bicycles. I couldn’t get much help from my colleagues because they could not visualise the Vision. So I must find way and means to tranfer whatever I perceived in my mind into something tangible. This is what I must do :-
1. Establish the main backbone of the Vision, set up the IKEA Rod.
2. Create the outline of the Vision. Using nylon string and Christmas cards to form the outline of the tree.
3. Add in some sample content of the Vision. Use the discarded keyboard, aluminium cans, beer bottles.
Once Physical Visualisation has been set, my colleagues started to pour in all the helps.
Although the Christmas is 75% complete due to lack of time, we still managed to WIN!! Unfinished work such as rolling used newspaper as Big Balls to fatten the Christmas Tree and adding spikes of Christmas Tree Leaves wasn’t done. LOLz.
HelleluJah! Praise the Lord!!

There is some lesson to learn from here. Only if other people had recieved the same Vision from God, our Lord Jesus, then the work can be easily carry out together, all in one mind. If not, you’ll have to identify the main backbone of the Vision to get it started. You’ll have to select the person who is able to visualised the Vision based on the backbone, if not, at least the outline of the vision. If these 2 steps has been done and yet the selected person cannot visualised, eitheir you are not good in illustrating ideas or that you have the chose the wrong person. Well, maybe your vision is too complex, you would have to fill in the content by writing so that the person or people helping you can carry out the specific instructions accordingly and complete the vision.

“Plant your Vision in your Mind, so that your heart and Soul can works towards achieving it”

End notes:

“I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.” (Acts 2:17). Would you rather have Visions or Dreams? Lateral meaning, only young man shall see Visions. Really? Old man can only dream dreams? Here is the secret to what keeps a person spiritually young. Visons are more intense with lots of God’s secrecy wisdom words and needs the young energetic spirit to run. Think of Caleb, the Vision of defeating Giants had kept him young because the Vision is full of young spirit energy and of great hope. Even at the age of 85, Caleb fought as a young lion and killed the giants. Have Vision, don’t be an old man. You maybe younger but if you have an old man spirit in you, you are not going to get any vision from God. Only those with Wisdom of God can interprete dreams and Vision, see next chapter.

Chapter 2 – Why we cannot share vision openly?

1. Vision is personal with God.

It has to be sacred in order to accomplish one’s destiny by doing God’s will. God understand and can read each and everyone mind. He is our loving father. He will give his son for things that he ask.

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?”

Friends, more than 20 yrs ago. Without going to Bible study class nor attend any cell group. I was able to interprete symbolic Biblical meaning, wrote Poems and proverbs of revelation for the Words of God.
Also conducted Bible study for small group of people as well as individual. All glory belongs to God, our Lord Jesus. Without him, I am nothing. During those younger day, I do not know how to ask the RIGHT thing from God. But instead of given item A that I asked for, I received item B. Praise the Lord, God loves each and everyone of us like his children. He will give the best to us even though we had asked for the wrong thing!

But today, having been reborn and come back to the Kingdom of God. I doeth closer walk with our Lord Jesus with the help of Holy Spirit, the Helper. I am able to ask for the Right thing that is pleasing to God and it was given. Hallelujah! True event happened! Prayre being answered.
Case 1. 18/12/2007 I already planned for my trip. The next day (Sat) I supposed to take the flight to Surabaya and yet there are uncertainties that worried me. Cichi (she called me Papa) supposed to call me with regard to meeting up at Airport and accomodation and yet no news. Then 3 of us gathered together to pray. That was about 10.20pm. Then I went home. Next morning, I decided to look at my phone and found the SMS from Cichi (Just after 1am), saying that she will arrange her BF to pick me up at Airport and then look for accomodation, no problem. Praise God, our Lord Jesus for answering my prayer, within 4 hours. Read My Blessed trip to Surabaya.
Case 2. I asked for the address of someone in prayer so that I can buy BD gift and despatch to the recipient’s house, and my prayer was answered in a much better way. I was invited to the recipient house for dinner many days before the BD, which is better than just the answer for the address. I’ve got to know the address physically.
Case 3. I am very eager to sell away my Guillotine Paper Cutter, unfortunately I lost the Mobile Number of the reseller, which I recorded on a paper. I prayed in the morning on one Saturday, asking in Jesus Name to have the person call me. My Prayer was answer in the afternoon. The person called me, his name is Raymond. Though I did not sell to him because the price is too low. I just want to thank Lord Jesus for helping me even though it is a very small task. Praise the Lord!

So if you ask in prayer for Vision to be revealed to you, then God, our Lord Jesus will reveal to you. If it is Very personal for your goodself only. DO NOT share with anyone else but pray to God for more revelations and confirmation. REMEMBER, in prayer, ask in Jesus name on what to do with the given Vision. More revelations and confirmations will come. And you will be able to have a complete Vision to accomplished it. Share it in this Esharing Portal once your Vision has been fulfilled. In other words, sharing the blessing.

2. Normally vision is not complete.

For individual, most of the time the Vision is not completely clear. There has to be revelations upon revelations and confirmation upon confirmation to finally built up a complete Vision.

For this reason, you can’t share with anyone else because incomplete vision would leads to doubts, disbelief, hurts and worst off, killing of a Vision. Only if you had grab hold of the complete Vision, then you can focus and do the will of God, Our Lord Jesus.

Habakkuk 2:3: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Patience my friend. Sometime, Vision (partial) are given to you way ahead of time. So that you can prepare yourself for the Vision. God, our Lord Jesus wants you to pray for more revelations and confirmations. It also gives you more time to gather material and also identify people who can help you in prayer. At appointment time, it will be revealed to you completely so that you can accomplished the task.

Matt 17:9 “And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.”

Perhaps what the disciple has seen on the Mountain is the Image of Jesus being Resurrected and all of them are commanded not to tell this vision untill he has risen again from the dead?
Why? Maybe if this Secret Vision has been foretold, the prophesy may not had happened or dire consequence may occured. Or people may ridicule, make fun of and hurt the disciple. Jesus loves all his disciples, he do not want them to be in the harm way perhaps.

Luke 24:23: “And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.”

So it is from the Vision of angels, that people were being moved to believe that Jesus had resurrected. This happened because there are many people who do not believed that Jesus had indeed resurrected. And Jesus’s body wasn’t found thus proven that he had indeed resurrected. “A dead man who comes back alive can’t walk alone with his Soul only!! For HE who is indeed Alive, walked with his Body and Soul!” (this phrase by Stanley).

3. Avoid being stolen.
How many time we had seen in the Real world, ideas being stolen. Likewise, Vision can be stolen too.

Our Pastor Kong Hee, ever mentioned in his sermon that we have to be very careful with Vision given by God, Our Lord Jesus. Tell only people who are involved or are part of the Vision. If not the individual who is not right with God may steal the Vision and said that it is from him. Only when the Vision is accomplished, the individual or groups can review to the whole world.

4. Many time it is coded, so that normal people cannot understand.

Matt 13:10: “And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?”

Matt 13:13 “Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.”

This is to ensure that only true disciple of God, that is those who had acquired the Gift of Heavenly Wisdom can interprete and understand these Visions.

5. Protect the vision that is sacred from God, Our Lord Jesus. Prevent it from being spit at.

Mattew 7:6: “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and tear you in pieces.”

This is a very serious matter. Since Vision is conveyed to the individual directly from God, Our Lord Jesus. The individual must protect it from being abuse, ridicule or spit at. Reveal or share only with people who are involved in the Vision. Do not share with wrong people. Vision from God, Our Lord Jesus is Sacred, DO NOT share with anyone unless the person is Spiritually connected or Right with you, who will doeth the Vision together with you. Sharing Vision with wrong people will be like giving to dogs who will spit at it and trample them and tear your heart in pieces due to disbelief and saying things or carry out action that will hurt you deeply. So Brothers and Sisters, be careful with God, Our Lord Jesus given Vision. You have great Spiritual Responsibilities!!

Chapter 3 – How to acquire God’s Vision for me?

In the Sermon by Rev. Dr Kim Sunghae, She mentioned that the Holy Spirit will give us four power :- Power 2 provided the answer to the above question.

“Power 2 – Holy Spirit gives us Heavenly Wisdom.
Solomon has mighty Wisdom that comes with Goodness and Christian with anointment of Wisdom will have Visions and dreams”

Why only Christian with Wisdom can have Visions and dreams?

My personal answer is this. Since Visions and Dreams is from God, our Lord Jesus, most of the time it is coded in parables or symbolic representation. (Latest update 14/05/2008, The different between Vision and Dream is that the formal mostly come as a still picture, series of pictures depicting events, signs, symbol or parable whereas dream is always like a movie trailer showing an event or story of the past, present or future, mostly actual happening. Also dream mostly relate you to real life experience could be generated from your sub-conscious mind. Vision is more of a supernatural or prophetic appparition.)Thus normal intelligent will not be able to understand nor interprete accurately. When you have a Vision, do not dismiss it! Ask God, our Lord Jesus “What to do with the Vision” More revelations and confirmations will come and you will be more equipped to complete the Vision. Be a responsible children of God or else why a Vision should be given to you?

Remember, Christian with great wisdom have great spiritual responsibiliy, they are God fearing individual who can cast aside any worldly desire in order to do God’s will. They are humble slave and servant of God, our Lord Jesus. Those who chose to fear MAN will be slave to MAN forever untill they learned how to fear God by giving up SELF and accept Jesus Christ, our saviour completely.

How to ask for Wisdom?

The answer is already been published before. Click this link for the topic. Man Seeking Wisdom
Read and understand:-
Mattew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.”

End notes:

“I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.” (Acts 2:17).

Would you rather have Visions or Dreams? Lateral meaning, only young man shall see Visions. Really? Old man can only dream dreams? Here is the secret to what keeps a person spiritually young. Visons are more intense with lots of God’s secrecy wisdom words and needs the young energetic spirit to run. Think of Caleb, the Vision of defeating Giants had kept him young because the Vision is full of young spirits energy and of great hope. Even at the age of 85, Caleb fought as a young lion and killed the giants. Have Vision, don’t be an old man. You maybe younger but if you have an old man spirit in you, you are not going to get any vision from God. Only those with Wisdom of God can interprete dreams and Vision, see next chapter.

 

The Magician

The Magician

There is a magician who visit town by town.

There in one of the town, there are two groups of people.

First Group is AC, Academic Christian.

Second Group is DC, Disciple Christian.

Now the magician approaches the first group and ask if they would like to see his Magic show. There are talks amongst themselves saying that this magician don’t look like one by the way he dress. With much doubts in their head, they reluctantly decide to pay a price for the show. Then the magician approach the Second group. Even before he reaches the second group, many of them are exclaiming “Look, here comes the Great Magician!” Humbly the Magician asked the second Group if they would like to see his Magic show. Many of them said “Oh, please, our great Magician. Show us now!”

Which group do you think the Magician would be more happy to perform the Magic Show?

Of course, he would perform for the second group because they have faith and trust in him. And most importantly, they KNOW HIM. The Magician thus performed the Magic for the Second Group without charging a single cent !!!

So Brothers and Sisters, if you have faith in God, our Lord Jesus, you will dream dreams, withness miracles and see Visions. As it is mentioned in the Bible.

Mattew 17:20 “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”

Mattew 13:13 “Therefor I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.”

Mattew 13:58 “Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.”

Hear well, my friend. God our Lord Jesus, chose to give Visions and use these little one as God’s Messenger, whom many considered them as little one. And yet, when these little one speak of the Visions and able to be Christ like and speak of parables, they Spit at IT!
The Trumpet is blowing as it is mentioned in the Bible:-

Mattew 12:31 “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven him; but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Spirit will not be forgiven men.”

End notes:
Academic Christian (AC) = Christian who thought that they are Christian or already been saved by gathering knowledge, prayed for Salvation but did not wholly give out SELF, thus wasn’t saved. Thus Enclothing themselve with righteosness or even proclaim work they done is from God, our Lord Jesus. These are the Group of people who can’t hear nor reach God our Lord Jesus. There appears to have a “Gulf Fix” between them and God. No one can cross over unless he or she repent and be reborn again. READ Two Nakedness mentioned in Bible

Disciple Christian (DC)= Christian who are really Saved. They offered their ‘SELF’ as a burning sacrifice in the fire which gives out the aroma that is pleasing to God, our Lord Jesus. Their “Self” is completely renewed and filled by The Holy Spirit. These Group of Christian are cloth with righteous Garment that is recognise by God, our Lord Jesus as Proper Outfit. Blessed are these for they can hear and communicate with God, Our Lord Jesus.

AC also means Alternating Current, meaning the mindset of these people are not focus, alternating different direction always, THEY CANNOT DO GREATER WORK!

DC also means Direct Current, meaning the mindset of these people are very Focus, they go in one direction. These are the people who do things with the Helper, Holy Spirit complete guidance. These are the one who can do much GREATER THINGS and their work is recorded in the kingdom of Heaven.

MOUNTAIN CAN BE MOVED IN PRAYER

MOUNTAIN CAN BE MOVED IN PRAYER?

A prayer:

“Oh Lord Jesus, thank you for your salvation.

Lord as we walked this straight path of righteousness

There are obstacles that stood in our way

We pray that Lord, you will clear the path for us

So that we can walk straight path in your light

There are obstacles that seems to be as huge as mountain

Mountain of doubts, uncertainty, problems and all difficulties

We pray that Lord, you can help us clear these mountain in prayer

For it is mentioned in the Bible that Mountain can be remove in prayer

In Jesus name, we pray, Amen”

The brethren asked me “What mountain you’re talking about?”

From this question, I gathered that he don’t understand the meaning of Mountain mentioned

in the BIBLE.

Mattew 17:20 “if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”

Mattew 21:21 “Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.”

Supposely, we gathered all the most faithful Christian together, fast for 40 days and pray for Mt Himalaya to be cast into the sea. Do you think that the mountain will be cast into the Sea? Never ! If it really happened, many people would died of massive flooding and disasters.

The mountain that is being mentioned is about problems, shortcoming etc or it can even be a person that stood in your way.

It is something or somebody that blocked your way, preventing you from moving forward, where you imagine it is like a Huge mountain standing in you way, so huge that you can’t see your vision and you can’t see far. So perhaps, only prayer and some action is required to remove away these mountains. For some very sturborn mountain, only prayer with fasting can remove them.

Fellowship Saved me from Trouble

15 Dec 2007 – BBQ at Pasir Ris Park organize by Vv Lim
15 Dec 2007 – 2pm

It was raining heavily at Jurong. At 2pm I suppose to pickup Lee at Blk 636. Then I will have to proceed to Jurong East Blk 248 for Saeedah, follow by Woodland Blk 717 for Farina and her son. I arrived late to pickup Lee. Then at Saeedah’s place, slightly late at about 3.05pm but on time for Farina and her son. It was really heavy rain and I have to slow down a lot. Then my no.1 called me at 3.30pm but I decided not to pick up her call, she been very negative about me having fellowship with brother and sister.

We arrived at White Sand Shopping Center Pasir Ris to meet up Cindy, and then we went to wrong location, NTUC Resort.

15 Dec 2007 – 4pm

Finally make it at PA Pasir Ris Park at around 4pm. Saw Danny and Joreen there in red T-shirt. We all move to the BBQ area. Then all of us were advised to move to sheltered area as it is going to rain. One by one we moved to the shelter and settle down, anticipating rain fall together.

15 Dec 2007 – 5.20pm

Then I received 2 missed calls. My caller ID showed that it is from Mr Lim, my Developer for Holland Apartment. So decided to excused myself and make a return call. Mr Lim answered my call; saying “Stanley, you better come down to Holland now, I am with the buyer now and we have some argument.” So I replied “What is it that they are not happy? I can’t go down now; I have a company function going on.” Mr Lim replied “No, no you better come down to clarify some issue; they said that you gave them wrong dimension for the unit they had bought. Maybe trying to say that you had misrepresented.” At this point of time, I am feeling very trouble. Note: In Real Estate misrepresentation is a very serious offence. Buyer can sue agent for their lost; tens or even hundred of thousand dollars. 5:40 Mr Lim Forwarded a SMS to me, proof of overstating the built up area. I have to make a decision whether to go down and settle everything or to stay behind to enjoy the BBQ. I prayed to our Lord Jesus for help and guidance. Then I decided, fellowshipping with brothers and sisters is more important and I called Mr Lim to say that I not going down today but tomorrow which is Sunday 16/12/2007 at 3pm at Holland Apartment. I went back to the sheltered area with my mind still thinking of how to settle the problem. Try my best to put up a smile but could not conceal my troubled face. Then I told Vv Lim, Ken that I need prayer for God’s Wisdom. Then John came to me and said that he can help me pray, so we went to further away and sit on the bench. So I showed to John the SMS which I read the following morning at cell meeting on Friday on how my Prayer has been answered within an hour from Cichi, my online daughter. This SMS solved my concern, “uncertainty of whether accommodation is book, or is Cichi going to meet me” I told John this “That is the problem with all Christian, our Lord Jesus perform miracles but the Evil one is around to create trouble. I received phone call from my Developer for Holland Apartment. He said that the Buyer is trying to say that I misrepresented and they forwarded a SMS claiming that it was sent by me. Misrepresentation in Real Estate can be sued for tens or even couple of hundred thousand dollars.” So I requested John to pray to our Lord Jesus Christ to give me wisdom so that I can speak wisely the following day when I meet them. So we started praying. After prayer we walked back to the shelter and game start

15 Dec 2007 – Near 6pm

The rain started to pour down mid-way through the game. We have just finished introducing ourselves. Then we played the slapping face game. God blessed us. Rain stopped after the game and we all moved to the BBQ pit. While our Heart helpers setup BBQ we played another game, this time we enjoyed most. Playing the attitude game, sad face or happy face. This game really brings about the Teamwork of getting the Items listed for happy face and sad face. My Team won!! Each one of us won a price of nice photo frame and we also sing praise to Lord Jesus, John shared the meaning of Christmas. All of us really enjoyed the wonderful BBQ organized by Vv Lim and Hearts. Then we all BBQ until almost 2200 hrs. I move off at 2205 sending Farina, her son and Saeedah home. I reached my home about mid-night.

16 Dec 2007 –  0130 hrs – Running through email correspondence for defense

I prayed to Lord Jesus for his help. I checked all my email in the Sent folder for evident that I had sent correct information to the Buyer through the Co-Broke agent. Not good, I remembered, all my out mail, I had deleted away. I begin to worry. Then 30 mins into searching, somehow miraculously the most important email wasn’t deleted, dated 26th August 2007. Praise the lord, remembered that I wasn’t reborn again Christian till 2nd Dec 2007 and this miracle has been done for me even before my reborn date. So I gather my presentation file, this printed email and go to Bed at 2.33am

16 Dec 2007 – 0930 hrs – Church Service

It was just after the service and very concerned Brother John walk to me and ask if I am alright and also if I am going to the meet up the Developer. Then I told John “No need, praise the Lord, I am staying behind for more fellowship and prayer. Because our Lord Jesus is victorious and he solved my problems.” We have scattered lunch together, I sat down with Lee and Bahrah. Then I was told that, all of them are going to Danny’s house for gathering in appreciation of their help on their Wedding. Well, I have nothing much to do, so I called Mr Lim to said that I will be meeting him at his Shop around 4pm. So I met Mr Lim and we have the common understanding that the c was a Fake one from the co-broke agent trying to frame me. Moreover, I advised Mr Lim that no Buyer in Good sense of mind will buy property based on SMS. Also I had emailed important information on 26th August 2007.

Mr Lim said that I must wait for this matter to be solved first. Then I told him that I going to Surabaya from 19th to 22nd December 2007 .

End Notes:

Brothers and Sisters
It is because you’re close to God that you will have to carry the burden of witnessing and testifying for our Lord Jesus Christ. Thus many events, miracles shall happen before your eyes and that shall be your burden to carry to testified for our Lord Jesus Christ. You are able to witness all these happening because you are closer to God. Would a Magician perform magic for you if you have great doubts (no faith) in his ability? Of cause NOT! He would rather choose to perform to individual who believe him more. Latest! Praise the Lord. Commission realised. God, our Lord Jesus is Victorious!
