This is my beloved class 3E3 at Y.I.S.S.. you know I really miss you all alot? I met some of the lower sec students yesterday at bt panjang and they remembered me. I can't forget the smiles and joy on their faces when they saw me. I was almost driven to tears =) hope to see you all soon!

Im not frail but strong

I know for a perfect reason why I have not been writing earnestly in my blog for a very long time. As I reflect on the events that have transpired, they are not just fading slowly away from memory, but are also events that have pulled me through to this point. Things are coming to a rest now and I am more than glad that it is going to be over soon. In my spirit, I know that a new beginning to about to unfold, though I cannot define it. I have grown much in these past weeks of being tested and His love has faithfully covered this multitude of sins. Living in a world where the culture is wearing very thin, I stand proud as His child. Very confident that He has guided me well, protected me and prevented me from being incensed or breaking down. As I hold my heart and pray daily, he listens and works in His mysterious ways to overcome my many difficulties. I’m finding more joy in me than ever to forgive and forget and to help, comfort and encourage others. Back then, I was always fighting against that self-love I used to hold on to so protectively. But as I pray to Him to change my heart, I can identify this change in me so distinctively.

My friends, it is indeed a big decision to give up your life for a God you do not know. But I assure you that this decision is going to change your life completely only for the better. At the age of 24, I cannot say I have seen the world but having tasted His goodness and still under His cover; I must say that I am safe. It is my prayer that you come to know God and experience that for yourself. No other thing can give you the satisfaction that God is going to bring to you. When life’s only certainty is death, why do we seek to insure our lives against death? I have found my insurance of heaven in God. When I thought that I could not contain anymore, and that my soul is depleted and ground to point zero, He has really brought me to another level of understanding from the wisdom of His words.

Life is not only about securing status, wealth, stability and ensuring peaceful relationships and friendships. Life is about love. What kind of love? A love of eternal value.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11

It is in everyone that we crave for long lastingness. And it is only in God that eternity (no expiry date) can be found. Fellowship means so much more than mere friendship between humans. And God desires our fellowship with Him.

Stop trusting in man, who has but a breath in his nostrils. Of what account is he? Isaiah 2:22

and so how have I been?

Return Of The King (1)

(Passage: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11)

Acts 1:11
"Men of Galilee," they said, "why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."

Return of Christ

How many times is Christ going to come back? eschatological yeah? Pastor Tiak explained there are simply two returns of Jesus. The first time Jesus is going to return is one that is going to catch us by surprise, like a thief in the night. The first return will be the meeting of the bride with our bridegroom, Jesus Christ. The catchphrase today is “It may be today”. And the second return of Jesus is when restoration has taken place, and He will return with the church of Jesus Christ in order for a new earth and glory. So what happens when Jesus returns?

Let us look at Joel 2:30 for His dramatic return..
“I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke.”

Matthew 24:6
You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.

Matthew 24:33
Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.

Matthew 24:44
So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

1 Thessalonians 5:4
But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.

Even so, it is impossible for any human being to be able to predict when Jesus is coming, and after all, the Bible is for us to build a character but not to conjure a calendar.

With that, there will be a Resurrection of dead bodies.

Matthew 27:50
And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.

When Jesus let out a loud cry, dead bodies of His believers rose.

John 11:25
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies;

So let us not be like the Thessalonians who were worried about their fellow brothers who were already “asleep”.

With that he closes with Rapture of all believers (there will not be dead believers anymore)
Rapture is a moment of ecstasy, and it means literally “caught up” and so we will all rise up into the sky of glory with our Lord Jesus when he comes again. (1 Thess. 4: 17)

Matthew 24:40
Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left.

Luke 17:34
I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left.

Implication: do not ever ever consummate with a non believer.

And of course, the application of what we have learnt today about Jesus’s coming:

1)Be alert and self controlled (So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled.1 Thess 5:6)

2) Build each other up, we are in this together in eternity (Now we ask you, brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 1 Thess 5:12-14)

3) Share with those who have no hope. Pastor Tiak highlighted the stark contrast between the non believers and believers with hope and without hope.

1 Thessalonians 4:13
Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.
Colossians 1:27
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

this is keith and I.. picture perfect! no one will think i am older right? =) God whispers

Where do I begin from where I have stopped
The tumultuous storm of events that chained me to this point
I could not even resolve and think
Wrung up I am
But not weary anymore
To sum it all up
It is over
All that has enthralled me in fear
Only to reveal the magnificent power of God

How can one love to experience
When the knowledge of love
Seems unfathomable
Infecting it on to the next milestone.

Lord, I am ready
As you widen your arms to me again

Listen, as God whispers
To begin is to end
To say is better to be unsaid
Oh, I have battered myself against the hardened wall
What an austere predicament it is
That dims the finite mind

Letting it all go
And anticipate good returns, pacified
All gone, all that has muted the soul
Blissful, finally.

Listen, as God whispers
Beyond doubt,
God has called
He has proven and He has understood
To the dazzle of His creation
Yes, He has assured
“I will go”

Presenting to you all that I have
From today
it is in truth, all about you God whispers

after .

Yes, writing something on the blog for now.

Started reading The Fear of The Lord by John Bevere. A serious read, wise one. This is the analogy: we are all like farmers in this earth, plant seeds, sow and wait for the harvest. The 3- step formula it seems. It brings me back to genesis, when The Spirit of God was on the earth that was void, and darkness on the face of the deep. God breathed life into human beings after forming them from the dust of the ground. What a sight it must have been! It is unnerving, back to look at what we are now, as farmers on His Holy land; do we long to breathe life into the souls who do not have it? Or just look on with moist eyes?

i m a sold -out Christian

Let us get our perspective right. It is no longer I who lives in me but Christ who lives in me. If that is so, what could I have done? Jesus is one who will stay in the marketplace of mindless chatters for His Father, but I left the marketplace with a lot of sadness. This is the second time I didn’t want to stay any longer in the marketplace. What grieves me more is that among them are brothers who are so overly caught up with the progress package. IS there a need to complain? To mourn over such trivial matters, that will face away in no time? When we are already set free by the truth? Money is the root of all evil and greed is a blatant sin by itself. God, why have you put me in such situations to test me time and again? What can I do when my brothers are entrenched in sinning, losing control and not being able to tame the tongue? Do they even have a relationship with you in the first place? If there is, what had happened and what had been lost? The whims of the sickly world have stolen a lie in each of our souls, by and large, are we going to let such evil prevail? Aren’t we already set apart and separated from sins? Why do we so vulnerably step foot in such sins again? You know, we had just missed a precious opportunity to win the hearts of man towards Christ again. I urge you my brothers, sin is a thorn in our flesh, let us never allow it to grow in our hearts and minds. We will never be workmen approved by God, the expert builder and maker of our lives if we continue to behave in such earthly manner. We are bought at a high cost, why do the fragile mind always forget ? I am not a weak Christian, when I say I will die for Christ, I am always READY to defend Him and His righteousness. Jesus in that situation might have overturned the tables like He did when He cleanses the temple. Why do we still make our workplace a den for sins when we lead a life intoxicated by the Holy Spirit? My only comfort today is when Daryl came to my desk and blessed my head with God’s anointing. He is one I can say ALWAYS drunk in the Holy Spirit. And let me tell you, the day of the Second Advent of Christ is near, soak ourselves in His Spirit now and yoke no more with the wicked and the deceitful. How can one not know what he is saying? Evil thoughts breed evil words. I pray for this brother and rebuke the schemes of the devil right now in his soul in Jesus ‘s the holiest name ever.

Godlessness in the Last Days
1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

2 Timothy 3

pray like never before, care like never before

The past 3 days, 29th-31st march, was at Camp Christine with the sec ones for their orientation camp.
My, God turned my world around into this out-of-the-world experience for me, I was blessed with His love throughout, had the most time to read His Word and pray and the most tie to spend with my students kayaking , orienteering the place in Lim Chu Kang, that’s really double portion for me.
Learnt many new things in this camp, and the bond between me and the colleagues, and the students grew ever stronger. My tears were welling up when I see my students Chill dancing at the campfire, when I thought I am going to miss the performance as I had to leave early for cg on Fri, God made their performance the first item of the night. It was truly a retreat for me ..
God taught me to remove the speck in my eyes, to see the emptiness in the eyes of my students. They need God. And He is using me to be a tool for His hands. Yes, as I hold the trophy of His salvation, I will be a fisher of men for Him right from today. No longer belonging to the crooked generation but bloodwashed by the Lamb. There are so many thoughts contained in my mind, and can only be summed up by His free and undeserved love. God, I want to worship in your sanctuary forever. My best friend, with you, I will never feel loneliness ever again. Teach me your ways my Savior. Accept my thanksgiving to you today. There is really no one else like you. When I search the Scriptures to know you better, I am going to find you.
Lead me into you again as I march towards the next two weeks of greater things to do for you. Yes, I really have many on my shoulders right down weighing, but my comfort comes from Jesus on the Cross who carried the weight of the sins of ALL mankind. My Jesus is one who cares and who would even sit with the rotten and the uncouth like the once Simon Peter, I want to be like Him. In this loveboat I sit with Jesus, I want to turn it to be a fishing boat for Him who will launch deep into the sea, just like how He told Simon Peter to let down his nets. One day, the whole world will worship Him, (rev 7:9), away from the background of persecution and martyrdom, we will be before Him, joining the angels, falling flat before His throne to worship Him in our white, pure and holy robes. God has a destiny for all of us, to be righteous in focus, and the destiny for the wicked is only evil and eternal condemnation.

I love YOU God.. ever in you who has created the world for Him. Yes, we will be a guide for the blinded, the beacon light for those who are lost in darkness.

they are good. are'nt they?
