    Day 5: Doing the right thing

    Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it. James 4:17 The last few days were hard, it is like a struggle of the old man and the new, wrestling the demons of self and the born again identity and eventually like all born again Christian must come to a conclusion – die to self. Doing what is right, is more important. The world will choose any other way than the right way because to be happy is more important than doing what is right. I googled it and I am shocked how many people will actually say that to be happy is…

    Day 4: Grace and Mercy that humbles me.

    For the Lord delights in his people, he crowns the humble with victory Psalms 149:4 Throughout the Scriptures, one resounding theme of a specific character trait of human beans that please God, that is humility. Opposite of that, pride, is the idolatry of self, that thinking we can be ‘god’. Humility redefines human’s struggle for self-autonomy, that includes our unreservedly self reliant on God for everything, including, and more important, our future. No matter how dark, or fussy, or uncertain it is, especially so, in today’s turmoil, can we give up the steering wheel of our lives, and let God take over? God’s grace and mercy extend to the humble…

    Day 2: Saved by Grace

    There is nothing complicated about Christianity, however, man’s wicked devices have complicated the simple message of faith that is by grace, we are saved. The man asked about the signs, who are those four horsemen, who is the mystery Babylon, and the truth, none of these really matters. We can be great apologist, an accomplished theologian, and consummate religion guru, none will save us. Our pursuit of such knowledge is not the reason for our salvation, Christ is. The late Dr. Martyn Lloyd Jones once said, if we are not changed by Grace, we are not saved by grace. That is the truth in the central doctrine and pillar of…

    Entering into the Presence of God

    There is a distinct misunderstanding of God’s omnipresence vs God’s presence in the church today. This misunderstanding is probably one of the major reasons for many false teachings today in the church that is a mixture of the ancient mysticism, paganism and contemplative eastern religion practices. We are all surrounded by AIR, yet, in some cases, we need special intake of oxygen especially in cases of medical requirement. God’s presence is like the air that surrounds us, yet, in the scriptures it is clear on a few things 1) Scriptures often bring to us a focus on the personality of God and that He is a personal God. He is…

    Whose’s glory?

    One of the major ‘doctrines’ of modern worship is summed up in the lyrics of the famous “What a beautiful name” by Hillsongs, You didn’t want heaven without usSo Jesus, You brought heaven down “What a beautiful name” Hillsongs Worship The verse, neatly tucked in some of the beautiful lyrics of the song that builds up to the powerful name of God is all about us, really. This is not just a problem for the modern church or Christianity in general, but a reality in the condition of the church which in its core, lies the true worship of ourselves – Idolatry. There is a perfect unity, fulfillment, love, and…

    Knowing Him above all else

    I was meditating on something that my beloved wife was ranting about in the car that we Singaporean are so ungrateful. Now what am I grateful to God for I am grateful for my mom and grandmother, and yes, they might be quarrelsome, loud, noisy, and all that but they are strong, resilient, poured out their lives for their family, and so much more. I am far blessed than many who may not have a family they can feel love and support from. I am grateful for a wife, and yes I have always said Mercy is not a beauty queen but she is an absolute ANGEL. She has a…

    4 June 2018 – Trials

    Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kings, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4 Do we want to stand still and wait for the wind to come and crush us under its weight and force? This is especially so in the lift of a Christian, when everything seems good, and easy that’s where we begin to die. Christian grow in times of trials and hardship, and that in contrary to popular belief that God only wants to bless us with wealth,…
