A LOVIN' 2009!

Why must the world ends 2008 with WAR? The war between Israel and Hamas (Gaza) has seen many civilians being killed! Truth be told, that the world will not get any better. It will get colder (the usual "I, me, myself" syndrome) and more people will be seeking for love. Whatever love they can find including homosexual love which has grown bolder and more acceptable nowadays.

What does this mean to Christians in the times we are living in?

Greater opportunities to serve God and love people! Yeah! Huh? More work? Got to get dirty? Or maybe getting hurt because of rejection? Are you still keen?

Things to do in 2009....

1. Love God with all my heart, with all..aiyah, everything you got lah.

2. Love your family members, starting with grandparents right down to the hyperactive toddlers.

3. Love your spouse (Give him/her a surprise love gestures)

4. Love your bros and sis in the church, everyone, yah, even those you don't like. (Please don't make faces at me)

5. Love your friends (I am NOT suggesting romance, please!) Love them with the love of God! Share with them how God has been so good to you.

6. Love everyone, even your enemies (whew!) This one can be done only after much being in God's presence.

Yes, yes, yes. Love, love, love. The world may end 2008 and begin 2009 with war but we must reverse that know what...LOVE!

PS: Have a Blessed 2009!

The year 2008 is now fast approaching its end. Looking back....hmmmm okay lah, not that bad but not really satisfied with what has been accomplished. I think I put too much time on the Internet coz I love to read, that's one reason and more so, it is the in-thing, Facebook, My Space, Blogs, E-Mails and MSN etc etc.

Ministry 2008

YES BCM; Missions trip to Cambodia; Youth Cell; Blazin' Aces; Youth Pastor School; Huge Camp; Youth Camp; and other church work.

Personal 2008

Trip to Bangkok; Taken three Masters' courses; etc

The Best Moments 2008

1. When my nieces accepted Jesus.

2. When someone accepted Jesus.

3. Youths being baptised

4. Youths serving together preparing for Christmas

The Worst Moments 2008

1. When I was dry and weary.

2. When I fanned the rumours of Tom Cruise's death (it went out of control)

The Best-Remembered Things I had learned in 2008

1. To be radical for God like King Josiah

2. Jesus is coming soon (excited yet scared)

The Most Surprising Moments 2008

1. That God used me to do a little for the nation by allowing my opinions be published in the Star Paper. (Pseudo - RON, Kuala Lumpur)

The Most Regretful Moments 2008

1. I was a bit lazy this year.

2. I spent too much time on the computer.

That's it! All in all, I pray that God would forgive me for not doing what He wants me to do and also pray that whatever I had done for Him that Jesus' Name be magnified and lives be touched for His glory!

PS: When you have a bad year, there is always a new year to look forward to.

THANK GOD FOR ALL OF YOU! (plus Sher-Mayne)

When I looked at this picture (copied from Facebook), I kinda felt that God is giving me a last look at a team that has been together for the last three to four years. Next year, we will be having a different structure of leadership in the youth ministry and that doesn't mean (I repeat, doesn't mean) that the present committee is history. They will continue to play important roles in V2 (if they want to lah) due to their experiences both good and bad. Take a look at the church right now, we have quite a lot of youth already. Enough to make an impact in the city (Jesus needed only 12). Not forgetting those who will be graduating from Sunday School next year. We already have an exploding Sunday teen class (about 15-16). I want to thank Ps. Anne sincerely for a well done work in SS! Dear outgoing com, all the effort you sacrifice is slowly but surely paying off!

All in all, let all glory be given to God!

Dear God, Forgive us for sometimes we want YOU to explode our V2 with hundreds of youth but in YOUR wisdom, YOU decide to give what's best for us. We thank YOU for that! YOU desire spirituality more than numbers so that we can best reflect YOUR glory! We continue surrendering ourselves to YOUR will for we know YOU will eventually bring the revival that we desire for YOUR glory! In Jesus' Name, Amen!

It's another HUGE success as far as I am concerned. We have the smallest crowd in terms of numbers, abuthen, the Move of the Spirit was BIG! My nephew told us enthusiastically after Huge Camp, "I want to go to church!" He was touched! Andrew Tong, another firsttimer said, "Awesome!" And then we have Jenn Ming playing the rhythmic guitar in the fantastic YAM band...I tell you, it was out of this world! It was added flavour because we have four Africans on the band and we all go wild! Also we have our own Tee Juan going international with his trademark Video in Huge Camp. He was the official Video man. YAM may want him to serve in the APYAC (Youth Pacific Youth Alive Conference - 10-13 Dec 2009) as the Video man as well. TJ also songled one night with other pastors' kids in the band! V2, way to go! You guys did us proud! All for God's glory!

To simply sum up all the preaching in Huge...

"Give your heart to God and God will set it on FIRE!"

PS: Let us all gear up next year for APYAC! Revival is coming throughout the world!

A strange mystery story in September 2008 happened in the gulf of Aden where a lot of ships have been hijacked by Somali pirates. Everyone knows about that hijack and Somali pirates but not many knew of a Iranian ship the (MV Iran Deyanat) which was hijacked and returned to Iran without ransom paid. It happened when the ship was hijacked and when the pirates opened the containers, they fell sick and 16 died mysteriously. They said they found powdery sand looked like some chemical inside. The dead were found to have suffered skin burns and hair loss likened to radioactive materials. The ship just sailed from China and the stuffs would be transported to somewhere else via the seas close to the coast of Israel.

The US even offered to pay USD7 million just to inspect it but refused by the pirates which deepened this mystery. They were in for the money and they refused. Finally one Iranian minister managed to negotiate successfully to free the ship.

THEORY - Some guy suggested that the Iranian wanted to blow up the radioactive material close to the coast of Israel and the dangerous radioactive dust would fall onto the land of Israel itself. That would be catasthropic! Millions would be affected.

If that is true then God has averted the disaster on Israel by using the wicked pirates as a tool to save Israel.

By the way, Iran has always depend on oil money to run its country. But now, according to the president Ahmedenejab, their economy is in big trouble with a low price of oil. (The president of Iran constantly wants to destroy Israel)

PS: God still has a plan for Israel. No one can destroy it with God around!

The picture above was taken by someone and I copied from TJ's blog (stealing from him, hehehe). That SMILING picture reminds me of God's amazing grace. The heart breaking episode in Mumbai's murderous campaign by a group of leng chai's definitely made the world angry like hell! But hell is far from the mind of God at this point of time. Since Jesus gave His life on the cross for the sins of the world, God has been SMILING from 'ear' to 'ear' so to speak. He is SMILING because sins had been atoned for. He is not angry with people anymore! His grace is amazing! The door to Him has been open ever since and anyone (I repeat, anyone) can come right through. And if they come, God will forgive them. What if the lone terrorist that was caught alive comes to Jesus? Yes, God will forgive him too. Are you jealous or even angry with God's grace? If you are, then you need grace too!

BUT, the smiling will stop one day! The Bible says the sky will turn dark, the moon red. No more smiling sky. The world will stop smiling too. There will be the GREAT TRIBULATION that the world has never experienced before. Natural disasters during that time will make tsunami 2004 like child's play. Wars will go nuclear, hundred times more intense than the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Don't wait until that day! Look up to the SMILING sky today and say, "God, I want to walk with You today". And God promised...

(Rev 3:10-11) Since you have kept my command to endure patiently, I will also keep you from the hour of trial that is going to come upon the whole world (The Great Tribulation) to test those who live on the earth. I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.
