Testimony of Life Journey
Topic: Testimony

Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Genesis 12:1-3 KJV)

What is your life journey like? Every moment we are living on this earth is a journey to eternality. We cannot live this life without purpose.

Let’s look the life of Abraham, a father of great nation. Even Abraham didn’t reach the great purpose of life during his lifetime, God used him to start this long journey with Him. Throughout the Book of Genesis, we see this journey has begun to take place. Hebrews 11:8-11 says, “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.”

Hebrews 11:40 says, “God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.” God cannot just give us the purpose of life until we would build our desires in our hearts. When we’d define our desires in our hearts, God would begin to put the great purpose in our lives.

Most people would misunderstand the will of God in today’s churches. The words blessing and prosperity are not related to how we can become rich. Please don’t misunderstand that Christian cannot be rich. These two words usually related to everything in us, such as body, soul and spirit. God wants us to be in healthy living and enjoy life while we are living in this world. He also wants us to discover the great purpose for our individual life. Even we couldn’t reach the purpose of life, we could start our journey with Him and pass onto the next generation.

Testimony of Worshiping God
Topic: Testimony

For Solomon had made a brasen scaffold, of five cubits long, and five cubits broad, and three cubits high, and had set it in the midst of the court: and upon it he stood, and kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven, (II Chronicles 6:13 KJV)

Jesus said in John 4:23, “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” The word worship means “kneeling or prostration to do homage (to one) or make obeisance, whether in order to express respect or to make supplication (Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon).”

What is our testimony of worship God or serve Him? Many of us may have some kinds of worship in our lives. We do not need to have wooden idols, but we put things in our lives that pull away from God. When you’d get up on Monday morning, what kind of things you are thinking on your top priority? Even though many of us may have outside jobs, we need to pause ourselves to have open conversation with God. We don’t have to close our eyes to have quality time with Him. Tune your worship music CD on and reflect what He has done for you. Maybe you are serving your community. Whatever we do in His name, we are worshipping God. Apostle Paul said, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things (Philippians 4:8).”

We are living in this world that has everything in technology. We do not have to spend hours of cooking to have dinner anymore. Instead, we put the frozen food in a microwave to cook our meals for us within ten minute. Or we don’t answer the phone immediately. Instead, we let the caller put the message in an answering machine. As we are thinking on this, do people have time to serve God? The answer is NO.

As the technologies are getting popular, it doesn’t mean that everything is easy for us. We still need to get up from our beds and do our work for that day. When the computer would decide to take vacation, we would need to call the technician for the repair service. When the football game would come on Sunday morning, we would decide to debate ourselves to whether to watch the game or go to the church. I know this may make some of you nerve.

However, there is a day for us to stand before God to give our testimonies to Him on what we have done with the gift of salvation. It is a question for every believer should testify to God. Last week, I gave a brief testimony of my life and web ministry. You don’t have to give genius testimony for other people to worship you. Every media evangelist should already receive their rewards. We do not have to be world greatest preachers for God’s kingdom. That’s wrong method that most American preachers are doing for over three decades. We are not in some contests against other churches or religions, but our battlefield in the spiritual world, where Satan and demons are.

I love how David fought against Philistine. David said in I Samuel 17:45, “Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.”

We cannot enter into the war zone until we’d recognize God, because He is our Father and King. Not a single His enemy would able to receive the victory over Him.

Again, what is your testimony? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God.

Testimony
Topic: Testimony

Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. (Jeremiah 1:5 KJV)

What is your testimony of life? Before we came out from our mothers’ wombs, God knew what He has planned for our lives. Even you were born with disability; it doesn’t mean that God would just ignore you. The mythological religion system said that having a disability means it’s a sign of God’s punishment for our sins. Sadly, some people still believe this myth as a teaching tool in schools, churches, and counseling services. But the Bible has many illustrations where God used people with disabilities to draw many hearts of people into Himself.

God has brought me out from orphan to show me a great purpose of my life. Some of you may know, I grew up in the orphanage in South Korea and came to United States in 1990 through adoption. I began to write inspiration messages in later of 90s and started the web ministry while I was in my vocational training. Even I have physical disability, it does not mean that God cannot use me in the mission field. Over ten years, several thousand people have ministered by MGJC Web Ministry (www.mgjcweb.org) because of support from God and my friends. I didn’t put my name as the title of this web ministry, because it’s not about me or people with disabilities, but it’s about God and His love for us. We cannot seek His blessing, but we’d start to seek His face. So He can pour His blessing upon us.

Prophet Jeremiah did not have a happy life. He went through many hates and sufferings during his life. But he had a great purpose for his life that God gave to him. We do not have to be fame of this world because our eternal awards are in Heaven. But we need to share our testimonies to the world, so people could receive FREE gift of salvation and accept Jesus Christ as their Personal Savior.

What is your testimony? Maybe you are going through some kind of life tragedy now, but God can use your tragedy for a great purpose of your life. You just need to trust in Him that He can walk with you through the tragedy. I Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” “For with God nothing shall be impossible (Luke 1:37).

National Day of Prayer
Topic: Nation

Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee. Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near… (Isaiah 55:5-6 KJV)

I believe that we, as a nation, are waiting for God to judge the nation. This pass Thursday was designated for us to pray for America to repent her sins and be reunited with God again. This country was founded by the Holy Word of God. We cannot bring another great revival until we’d repent our sins and rebuild our relationships with Jesus Christ.

America has built so many debts over years to other countries, especially communism nation in China. We had a hit by terrorists from radical Islamic group on September 11, 2001. This nation hits by natural disaster every year.. Public and private schools are corrupted by witchcraft, immorality, violence, and crime activities. Some churches decide to stop telling the Word of God. Instead, they bring messages that would bring satisfy to our fleshes and not our spirits. America families are dying almost every day, both secular and Christian worlds, because of miscommunication. Many entertainment industries are corrupted by ungodly activities.

It is time for us to step out from our closets to proclaim the Word of God. We do not need our national leaders, that don’t stand for the truth, to run for our lands. It is sad to see our former and current presidents proclaim to be Born-Again Christians for the Presidential Election; and we don’t see any fruit of spirit when they work for our nation.

National Day of Prayer is not one day event. It is ongoing process. We need to vow our knees and pray to God. Not only do we pray for our needs, also, for our nation, president, government, children, education system, entertainment, family, and other nation/social issues. God said in Jeremiah 33:3, “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”

This is not about religion, but it is about relationship with Creator. God created America for purpose. We need to be under His authority and do His-given assignment to us. That assignment is sharing His loving messages to lost souls.

He is Risen
Topic: Gospel

And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. (Acts 1:9-11 KJV)

Even though this is the Holy Week, I’m not going to bring why we celebrate Easter Sunday. As I mention in previous messages, the word Easter in KJV does not associate with Resurrection Sunday, but it’s related to Passover Feast. Also, Jesus didn’t die on Good Friday, but Wednesday, and resurrected on Saturday evening. Every action that Jesus takes must foretell by prophets in Old Testament. For example, Isaiah 53 predicts the death of Messiah in Gospels, which is the death of Jesus Christ.

Why Jesus died for us and resurrected on the third day? Read with me in Isaiah 53: “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.“

Jesus did not die for us to give us the demonstration His deity, but for our transgression of sins. Paul said in Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus did not need to die on the cross for our sins, but He did for us with His blood. But He didn’t just die for our sins.

He resurrected on the third day to identify Himself that He can be with us always. We don’t need to have another god to protect us. There are many religions that claim to have the road to Heaven, but only our relationship with Jesus Christ can make to be with our Heavenly Father eternally.

Are you ready to meet with Jesus Christ? He is not in His tomb, because He resurrected from the grave. Jesus said in John 11:25-26, “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.” Would you take a moment to evaluate yourself and reunite with God? You may have deeply sorrow experience in your life, but God can restore your life. You may decide to take drug pills or shoot yourself with gun. I’d like to encourage you to stop what you are doing at this moment, and just talk to God as you are talking to your friend. If you’d like to stay in touch with me for further assistance, please don’t hesitate to email me. Please let this day would be the best day of your life.

Resurrection of the Dead (Part III)
Topic: Gospel

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. (Luke 16:19-23 KJV)

I would like to conclude this series with two kinds of resurrection. Most of us may know the story of Lazarus and Rich Man in Luke 16. As we understand the story, the filthy rich man had a wealthy earthly life while Lazarus tried to survive his earthly life. One day, these men died and went to two separate directions to eternality. Lazarus went to his bosom and the rich man ended up to hell. Of course, the rich man tried to escape from the hell by calling Father Abraham, but it was too late for him to repent his sins.

Why do I mention this? Many today’s people don’t have idea where they’d spend eternality. About 80 percent of Americans believe that they’d go to Heaven, but only few percentage of Americans have fully devoted to Jesus Christ. It is devastating to see that some Christians destroy their bodies by tattooing symbols on their bodies and try to live for Christ. This is one of things God doesn’t like to see us to do (see Leviticus). Paul said that we are the temple of God (I Corinthians 3:16). We just cannot put tattoos on our bodies.

The rich man, in Luke 16, didn’t care for God’s children or have any relationship with Him. Even though God doesn’t like to see anyone to go to Hell, He doesn’t have choice to throw this rich man to the dumpster.

Let me ask you this important question. What if you’d die today, where would you spend eternality? If you’d continue to follow this world system, then your resurrection would be in Hell. However, if you’d choose to live for Jesus Christ, then you resurrection would be great. You’d have eternal life with God.

Some today’s preachers do not teach the importance of resurrection, because it’s all about what we want from God. God cannot just send you to Hell unless you’d decide to refuse Him to be your personal Savior and Lord of lords.

Resurrection of the Dead (Part II)
Topic: Gospel

Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. (Matthew 27:50-53 KJV)

Before Jesus died on the cross, there was a preview of the rapture of the church. We see that many people began to rise from their graves at the voice of Jesus. Their bodies began to transform into new bodies. We do not know how they transform, but Paul said that “we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump (1 Corinthians 15:51b-52a).”

Some of us may die before the rapture and some may still live to see the event. Even though some biblical scholars may have different views of rapture, we all will face the death and pain as the earth would face the seven-year tribulation. There is no guarantee that we would not experience the pain before Jesus would take us to home. But the Bible guarantees that we will have no more pain when we would enter into Heaven.

Acts 1 gives us a glimpse of the new resurrection of new body. This new body will be spirit. We would able to go through the wall and go to outer space. We cannot be sure how this can be done until we’d receive our spiritual bodies. Also, there will be no people with disabilities after the transformation.

Some preachers still believe that being a person with disability is a punishment from God. This is totally myth. God can bring healing upon a person with disability, because He cares and loves His creation. Even though I have physically disability, my body will be changed dramatically on the day of the last trumpet sound.

Are you ready to meet Jesus on the day of rapture of His church? If not, I would like to encourage you to surrender your life to Him. He wants you to be with Him for eternality.

Resurrection of the Dead (Part I)
Topic: Gospel

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. (I Corinthians 15:3-8 KJV)

Today, I would like to look at the resurrection of the dead. Most today’s preachers do not bring this subject any more. It is important for us that there is another life after we would be gone from this planet. You may hear that Jesus will come back to the earth to take us. But, we may be dead or live to experience the transformation of our bodies.

We would like to begin this topic with the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Most of us have learned that Jesus died on Good Friday and resurrected on Easter Sunday. This teaching arrived from the Catholicism and not from the biblical aspect. In Matthew 12:39-41, Jesus gave His disciples a sign of Jonas as a key to His death and resurrection. He didn’t die on Friday evening, but Wednesday evening, and resurrected on Saturday evening to signify the Passover the lamb on the Sabbath (Saturday).

When Jesus resurrected, He first went to see Cephas and then twelve apostles. Greek word for Cephas is stone, which Jesus gave another name for Peter (Matthew 16:18). This does not mean Jesus put him over the church, which the Catholic Church takes this verse literally. We must understand we, those who believe in Jesus Christ, all are bodies of the church. The church is universal. In Old Testament, people had to go to the temple to worship God. But, after Jesus resurrected from the dead on the third day, we can worship God at anywhere and anytime. His resurrection signified our freedom from sins. He paid our debt of sins on the cross to demonstrate His love. We need to understand His death is not totally free, even though He freed us from sins. We have to follow Him daily and live for Him.

We cannot experience resurrection until we’d full understand what God has done for us.

Would you like to know Jesus Christ today? I’d like to recommend you to stop things what you are doing for moment and ask Him for forgiveness of your sins and invite Him to your life. If you are Christian and would like to re-vow your commitment to Him, it’s not too late for you to reunite with Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. God wants you to be in His kingdom and live with Him forever, but He cannot force you to be there. You have to choose to go either Heaven or Hell for eternality and there is no other way to spend eternality. Jesus paid your price for you to go Heaven by dying on the cross. Paul said in Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Now, you have choice which life you’d like to live from now to eternality. Hopefully, you have made right choice for your life.

Fasting and Prayer
Topic: Discipline

Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. (Matthew 6:16-18 KJV)

Having a fasting is not easy for anyone to do. It takes a lot of prayers and commitment to do this spiritual journey. Unlike yoga, it helps us to build our relationship with Jesus Christ as well as our inner being. As the Holy Trinity, we also have three instincts for us alive physically—spirit, soul, and body. We need our spirits to function our souls and bodies, but we need build our spirits to connect with God. Paul said in Romans 8:26-27, “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”

We cannot intercede with God without the Spirit. Remember, when Peter, James and John went to the mountain with Jesus Christ for transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-13). After Jesus finished to talk with Moses and Elijah, His three disciples failed to heal a demon-possessed boy (Matthew 17:14-16), because they all failed and slept. They didn’t understand the meaning of His transfiguration.

We just cannot give up on certain food. We need to have the full experience of fasting and prayer as Jesus did at the wilderness. We also need to spend our times with God by praying, praising, and reading His words. Most today Americans said that they are proclaiming to be Christians, but there are few of them can quote Scriptures without looking at the Bible. Again, I say this: We need to put God in our communities, public/private schools, homes, supreme courts, and entertainment industries.

Nowadays, we see that many teenagers are hurting, come from broken-families, or come out from abused condition. When we look at the entertainment industry, MTV and Henry Potter movies are influencing our young people and decided to turn away from God, family members, and friends. Our nation is beginning farther away from God. President Obama is doing anything that would turn this nation far from God.

We need to exercise our spirits in order to fellowship with God and people. We also need to do fasting and prayer to stand firm against Satan. Satan can attack us if we’d decide to invite him to our lives. Satan cannot attack us unless he’d receive permission from us. This is why some America churches are weak, because they didn’t have experienced transfiguration with God. We need fasting and prayer, not because its religious recommendation, but we need our relationship with Him from now and throughout the eternality.

I know most of us would not able to fast and pray for forty days without food, but we could let some of our favorite things go for while and let’s spend our quality time with God. Most of us would have idols in our lives that pull us away from God. Idols don’t have to be made of wood statues, but they can be sport games, food, drinks, spouses, or anything that make in our first priorities in our lives. In 1 John 2:15-17 says, “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” Things are not considered as our enemies, but when we’d have fallen in love things more than God, we’d consider ourselves as enemies of God.

Would you like to know Jesus Christ today? I’d like to recommend you to stop things what you are doing for moment and ask Him for forgiveness of your sins and invite Him to your life. If you are Christian and would like to re-vow your commitment to Him, it’s not too late for you to reunite with Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. God wants you to be in His kingdom and live with Him forever, but He cannot force you to be there. You have to choose to go either Heaven or Hell for eternality and there is no other way to spend eternality. Jesus paid your price for you to go Heaven by dying on the cross. Paul said in Romans 5:8, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Now, you have choice which life you’d like to live from now to eternality. Hopefully, you have made right choice for your life.

Beginning of the Birth Pain
Topic: End of the Age

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:5-8 KJV)

In Matthew 24, Jesus began to teach His disciples on the last day of the earth. Before His second coming to earth, Jesus warned that there will be a lot of world tragedies would be going on, including deception of the Christian churches.

As we see in our society, world is chaos. We see that many churches are beginning to fall from foundations, Israel is preparing for war against the other nations, and governments are trying to unite together to One World Government. We also began to see there are many natural disasters are occurring in various places. For example, Japan had about 9.0 magnitude of earthquake this past week. These or more are indicating that we are getting closer to return of Jesus Christ. Yet, many people are still unfamiliar His given signs. Weather Islamic messiah would arrive on December 21, 2012 or not, we need to be ready to meet our Lord Jesus Christ.

The world says that there are many ways to Heaven, even some Christian evangelists said this (such as Billy Graham, Joel Osteen, Kenneth Copland, Paul Crouch). But there is only one way to Heaven, which is through Jesus Christ. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Are you ready to meet Jesus Christ? If you are new to Christianity, I’d like to welcome you to God’s family. I’d like to suggest you to visit at MGJC Web Ministry at www.mgjcweb.org to explore who God is, what God has planned for your life, and it helps you to build your personal relationship with Him. If you’d need any assistance, please feel free to email me at www.mgjcweb.org/contact.html.

Journey through Life
Topic: New Year

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; (John 5:24-26 KJV)

Living a life on earth is a journey toward our eternal home. God puts us on this world temporary until He would take us to home. Most people would believe that our homes are the only on earth. However, we are only journeying through life.

Nowadays, most Christian leaders are teaching us how God bless us by gaining material possession. Even though God could bless us through material possession, we should seek His face, not His hands, to get closer relationship with Him. In this passage, Jesus said that whoever hears His word have everlasting life. Words of our mouths have powerful weapons to deliver to other people. They can kill other peoples’ lives or build life. We have choices what kind of words out from our own mouth.

Currently, our U.S. Congress is trying to put down the Obama Healthcare, because the Americans believe that this healthcare is destroying the American lives, especially lives of unborn children. Once Americans selected Barak H. Obama as the next U.S. President, it will be hard to give him advice to change his new legislations. We let him to sign the Military Gay Rights and socialism version of healthcare. Only we can change the America back as it was is through the power of prayer. We need to put the name of God in communities, schools, and our governments. We cannot change anything until we’d reunite with Him first.

Most TV evangelists would believe that December 21, 2012 would be the beginning of the Last Day. I do not believe this date as the day of Armageddon, but we should be ready for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. We should continue to walk through our journey of lives. Even though Jesus died for our sins, it doesn’t mean that we have nothing to pay. We have to live for Him and continue to do His mission that He gave us to do (Matthew 28:18-20). Will you continue to walk through journey of life since Jesus began His journey for you to do?

Ultimate Gift for Eternality
Topic: Holiday

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. (Matthew 2:11 KJV)

I’d like to ask you something. What is your ultimate gift for eternality? Even though I do not support Christmas as Christian holiday, we all like to receive gifts from someone during this holiday season. In this passage, we read that Jesus received three gifts from these wise men. We do not know how many men were there. Most holiday cards may tell us three wise men because of three gifts are mentioned in Matthew 2. However, there may have more than just three wise men or sorcerers. We don’t know the exact numbers of audience there.

The number of three represents Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Spirit).

What is God’s given-gift for us? Even though this is silly question, God gave us everything. The most precious gift that He gave us was the He brought His Son, Jesus, to the earth to pay our sins on the cross and resurrected on the third day to live in us. I believe John 3:16 is referring to those who accepted Jesus Christ as their own personal Savior. He gave all of us the same invitation, but some of us have declined His free gift. Some may have fallen in love with fame, wealth and power that they could not make room for Jesus in their lives. Some may have fallen n love with spending too much to watch TV programs. I like when the TV program ran from 5 am to 10 am and 5 pm to 10 pm, but any of us can watch 24 hrs. a day now. It’s all about having some comfortable couch times rather than making production. This is why we see some churches have fallen from its foundation. Some churches have misused God-given gifts over the last six decades.

We need to go back to the basic and learn from our mistakes. It is not enough for us to enter to the sanctuary to spend with God only on Sundays, Easter, or Christmas. These days are useless to God, because He needs us to spend quality time every single moment. That is how much God love us. But the question is: Are you going to let Him?

Trust Who?
Topic: Trust

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV)

When you’d decide to give all your possession, who do you trust with all your belongings? Is your best friend? Is your spouse or soul mate? Or is your God, who gave you a life?

The world may tell us to put trust in the earthly possession, but that may fade away shortly. Jesus says in Matthew 6:19-21, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Why we cannot trust the world with our earthly possession?

Even though God created the world, He allowed let Satan take control the world for while. The Bible says that Satan has very limit of time before he would face the eternal judgment, which it will be in Hell. I believe that God gave Satan the permission to govern the earth with two purposes. First, God wanted to teach Satan for tricking Eve. Genesis 3:15 says, “I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” This verse has twofold prophecies. First prophecy was when Jesus defeated Satan on the Calvary. Satan thought he win the victory over Jesus when Jews putted Him on the cross through Roman Empire. Unfortunately, Jesus went to the heart of the earth to get the key of the hell for Satan and his demonic angels. The second prophecy is on the second coming of Jesus to defeat Satan for good.

Secondly, God wants us to trust Him and make a decision between good and evil. God could create us as robots, but He didn’t. He putted Adam and Eve in Garden of Eden that has the tree of life and tree of good and evil. The tree of life has eternal life. Unfortunately, Adam and Eve lost to grab the fruit of tree of life by listening to the serpent and ate the other tree. This doesn’t mean that our sin natures are from Adam and Eve. We have the choice of our actions. We can decide to be as devilish children or children of God. We can trust the world system or God’s.

Currently, the world is walking toward to the New World Order System, which it represents the work of the Antichrist. This system will not be lasted up to seven years. We can trust the New World Order system by receiving the mark of beast, but we will lose to be citizens of God’s kingdom forever. This is why we need to be involved with politics—not getting into wrong hand. Right now, many Americans are blinded by actions of President Obama. CNN doesn’t know that President Obama is involving with radical Islam or planning to give Jerusalem away to Palestine. But if we trust God, He will lead us to the right path.

Who do you trust? This question cannot be answer by someone else, except you.

Heavenly Father, I pray that everyone would put their trust in You. Only You have the answer that they are looking for. The world may have good physicians to our physical needs, but it doesn’t have cure that satisfies our spirits. Only You can touch into our spirits. I trust You to lead me into the right path. I prayed in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Twist Doctrine
Topic: Deception

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. (I Timothy 4:1-3 KJV)

Today, we began to see many tragedies are happening in both Christianity and secular worlds. Some Christians have left their faiths and decided to follow the world. It is sad to hear that one of Christians have left his faith in Jesus Christ and decided to follow Allah (god of Islam). It is also sad to hear that some church leaders may able to deceive their congregations with the lukewarm message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Nowadays, we hear that Christianity and Islam may consider as the equal religion as Catholicism and Christianity. This is very danger of religion combination. Yet, TBN Founder, Paul Crouch, sells some Islamic books in TBN Bookstore, such as Koran/Holy Bible (companion bible). We also see some preachers caught by the media on their mistakes.

What’s happening in the world? America had been a great economy nation; yet, we see that she is falling apart. Since the 9/11/2001 tragedy, almost 100,000 Christians turned to faith of Islam. Why? The Islam explained that they have the power to destroy the nation. They wanted America to surrender their faiths.

Even though God allows the deception that tests our faiths, we must keep our faiths in Jesus Christ.

Servant of God
Topic: Service

But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. (Matthew 10:42-45 KJV)

There is different to be a servant of world society and a servant of God. Everybody can help each other in the world. We can contribute our money to clean Gulf Coast from the oil spill. If we would give our time and finance to God first, then our contribution to the world would become more meaningful.

Nowadays, we see many America churches are making multimillionaire for selfish reason. They want to become fame, rich, and glorify himself to the world than glorifying God. This is why we see and hear many names of churches are after pastors’ names. They want to promote themselves, so the world can recognize them.

Jesus didn’t come to the world to become worldly fame, but He came to serve His people. We cannot have enough to help our people in time of their needs. Follow the servant method by Jesus Christ.

Moral Value vs. God’s Value
Topic: Nation

Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods... (Joshua 24:14-16 KJV)

Today, we are living in dangerous society that turns ourselves from God. Many young adults are learning that live in homosexual lifestyle is considered as good. Unlike four decades ago, most preschoolers are starting to learn on how to use the computer.

Where the moral standard is which God established it for the humanity? Is having homosexual considered as genetically and biologically approved? If so, why God brought judgment on Sodomite and Gomorrahite (see Genesis 19)? Traditionally, God constituted the marriage between one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24-25). Since Adam and Eve broke the covenant between God and them (Genesis 3), we allowed Satan comes to govern the world and tempt us to do ungodly things. Some people, especially in young generation, would believe that homosexual genetic is real, even though there is no scientific and biblical evidence to approve it. Just as disapproved by the evolution theology, human did not come from the certain animal. The Bible says that God created a male and a female in His image (Genesis 1:27). This fact also can be approved by scientifically and non-biblical resources.

As God's moral value declines, people are kept sinning against God. Even to this day, our current president is kept ignoring the conditions in the Gulf Coast and the national moral crisis. AFA News and CBN News reported that Elena Kagan is considered now as the US Supreme Court Judge, which is appointed by President Obama. This judge is very liberal who favors in all ungodly practices, such as LGBT activist, abortion right, and same-sex marriage. If you'd like to have more about Kagan, please go to www.mgjcweb.org and click on Who is Elena Kagan really? You will find some shocking information and why US President selected her as the US Supreme Court Judge.

Again, it is the time for Christians to involve in political process and to involve with youths. We cannot change our nation until we would repent our sins to God and to do His will.

Will the America Return to Homeland?
Topic: Nation

And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem. (II Samuel 11:1 KJV)

II Samuel 11 is about how King David started to involve with adultery and crime. Even though King David had a solid relationship with God, it doesn’t mean that godly people hardly to fall into the temptation of sins. Romans 3:23 tells us that we all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We cannot say that we sinned because of Adam and Eve. We all have freedom to choose which life we want to live for.

Let me ask this hard question: Will the America return to homeland? I’m not talking about the generation of President George Washington. Most America people believe that this country was founded by the principle of the Holy Bible. This means, before today’s generation, there was less crime, violence, and murder in streets; pornography was not allowed in the entertainment industries; every student had the right to pray and read the Bible in their public schools. But, nowadays, we go to opposite direction of American’s life.

We started to sin like King David sinned. But, unlike David, our nation is kept thirsty for sins. Our nation started to open door for other nations to come and live among us. Then, other nations started to bring their cultures and belief systems into America. As we can see, we have brought Catholicism, Hinduism, Muslim, Taoism, Satanism, Witchcraft, Bone and Skull, and other world religions and rituals into our nation.

Our public education system is now corrupted with witchcraft, sexism, hate, and crime. The entertainment contains with violence, sex, and weapons. Our churches began to develop as Las Vegas places. We have gone from God so far that we have forgotten our engagement vows with Him. The national leaders cannot lead us to right direction because people have forced them into wrong paths. Our president is doing nothing to bring the nation into God. Christian marriages are fallen apart as the secular world. Many teenagers are suffered from drugs, strangers, violence, crime, secular education system, and parents’ marriage issues.

As Carman, Christian artist, stated, “America needs God again.” We need God in our nation. King David finally came into realization what he did was crime for his relationship with God and with his nation (see II Samuel 12). Our nation could not have another great spiritual revival until our nation would return to God.

Blessing for Those Who Read the Bible
Topic: Word of God

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. (Revelation 1:1-3 KJV)

Most people may refuse to read the Bible every day, because:

1) Hard to understand the [KJV] Bible

2) Don’t have enough time to make quality time with God

3) Sunday is the only time to read the Bible

4) News on media vs. news in the Bible

5) And more…

The Bible may seem ancient to some people, but it is still relevant to our generation. It contains how we can live in healthy lives, current and future world events, how we can live a successful life, healing, and more.

Unfortunately, some Christians have come with new doctrines from God’s Words and make themselves idols. For example, some churches use the telethon to gain more money rather than reaching the lost souls, such as TBN Praise-a-Thon. It is ashamed for Christian leaders to do this robbery. Giving tithes to our local churches and communities are nothing wrong to worship our God, but when churches use tithe money for worldly fame, power, and wealth is not pleasing to God.

If you would want to receive the blessing, start mediate on God’s Word daily and put it into action.

Pray for Our Nation
Topic: Nation
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces. (Psalm 122:6-7 KJV)



Even though Psalm 122:6-7 relate to Jerusalem, America needs our prayers. We need to pray for spiritual revival in this nation. Our country began to lose to connect with God and began to turn our nation as the Day of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Our current president is trying to make our nation as communist nation with his universal healthcare plan. This plan is totally control by the government, which it would soon lead us into New World Order and Antichrist. Not long months ago, Virginian Del. Mark Cole refused to sign a law for Virginia citizens require to take micro-chip in to their skins, because he understood this plan was about the Mark of Beast (Revelation 13). President Obama is doing nothing to protect our nation and the land of Israel from enemies (radical Islamic and communism nations).

The reason we have many national tragedies is because many Christians are ignored the situations and let our people may have what they want. We let our young adults to vote Barrack Obama as the U.S. President and we are blaming for his leadership. We were silence when many homosexual come out from closet. We also were silence when the one person stood to prevent students from praying in the name of Jesus in public schools.

We need to pray to God to turn our sinful ways away and rebuild our relationships with Him. God doesn’t do anything until we’d decide to quit our ways and let Him to be our Leader. We also need to pray for our president to turn from his wicked ways and receive the gift of salvation from God. Lastly, we need to pray to God that someone to destroy all the idols people made in Washington, DC. God cannot to stop to bring His judgment upon us until we’d destroy all the idols in our Capitols.

I understand that I made some strong points of where our nation is right now. However, we cannot have freedom until we’d come to realization our selfish ways and begin to turn to God.

Greater Relationship
Topic: Relationship

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13 KJV)

Do you have a solid foundation of relationship with your spouse? Or with your friends? Or with your neighbor? But, mostly, do you have a strong relationship with Jesus Christ? If your answers are all no, you are not alone.

We all struggle with our relationships. Our lives are not perfect. Romans 3:23 says that we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. But God has never failed His relationship with us. Even though we have failed our relationship with Him, He has not move away from us. There was and is no one to show us the greater love than Jesus Christ. Romans 5:8 says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Do you know why are Christian families breaking apart from unity today? They have left their first love with God. This is why we hear some teenagers are addicted to drugs, pornography, witchcraft, and violence. Also, their parents are having financial problems that cause them to separate each other. I do not know what your circumstances are, but God knows.

God does not make you to be a religious person, but He’d like to have an intimate relationship with you. Most today’s preachers do not teach about how we can have a personal relationship with God anymore. They teach us about how we can get more stuff from God. That’s not good. We need to hear more messages on how we can recognize Him and honor Him.

So, here are some suggestions we can try when the crisis would arrive:

  • Do not start to focus on the problem, but focus on God for solution to the problem. God knows every detail to our needs before we’d ask Him.
  • Money issue is not the problem, but our focus on God. We need to change our channels to Him.
  • We need to begin to work the problem in home and not up to church.
  • We need to begin to develop our own relationship with God.

If you want to rebuild your relationship with Jesus Christ, please consider to ask Him to forgive your sins and invite Him in your life. I do not like to give the formula to sinner prayer, because that is between you and God. Then, find a home church that would encourage you and teach solid foundation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; and begin to have your daily Bible study and prayer habits. Lastly, find some Christian friends who encourage and help you at anytime of the day.
