The Lord is our Savior from 1 Kings 18

Elijah - Whose God is Jehovah

Behind the scene ministry - those who are not seen but very important. Example are Prayer warriors.

God will use you rightly.

Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.


It is so important for us parents to teach our children with the word of God. We need to be a good example to them in reading the Bible.

Hebrews 6:12 We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.


God is not unjust..

Matthew 10:32 "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.


Some people blaming God when things go bad. Jesus said "in this world we will have many troubles". But we should not be shaken. We should remember to call the name of the Lord and never doubt.

Revelation 19:20 But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.


Judgment of God will come "the lake of fire"

"Grow Up" from 2 Peter 3

When we attend the pastor and servant conference there were many strong believers that serve for more than 10 years but still they make effort and willing to learn.
The story of merciful servant who didn't anticipate for the coming of Christ. To be blameless and spotless. The first thing you need to do in order to experience peace is to receive the grace of God. Ephesians 2:8-9
We worship God for who He is and continue to receive His grace. Be strong with the grace of God. We need to be always be reminded with His grace.
Sotaira salvation patience.
Paul war apostle for the gentile. All disciples are believers but not all believers are disciples. God is not just interesting. It is not we need to worship God to be blessed, You worship God cause you are blessed.
Remember that the other purpose of this book is to warn us about false teachings.

Romans 5:20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

2 Timothy 3:5-7 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.
6They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.

Jude 1:4 For certain men whose condemnation was written about[a] long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.

Some preacher keeps quoting the Bible but twisting the words of God. We need to be on guard on what we have learned.
Matthew 7:15 "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

When you receive all His word and being attack by the enemy, be on guard don't pop the balloon. As Christians we need to be devoted.

The problem is not time management its Hunger management. You need to grow in grace.
Ephesians 1:17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
Not just in grace but also in knowledge. There's a saying a hungry children is the healthy.
Pray to grow up to our Lord. For us to grow we need to be controled by Jesus.

Pastor's Message
2 Peter 3:18 But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.

Acronyms for the word GROW:
G-God first
R-relationship with God is so essential
O-obedience to his Word
W-worship (praying and singing)

"Be Reminded" from 2 Peter 3:1-13

As Christian Jesus told us to watch out in the day of His coming, and so, we must work out for our salvation.

As for some Christians they don't want repeated teachings. But the important thing is we are reminded. Paul remind us we need to be strong in His grace. It's not just you hear new teachings the true meaning is when you apply His words. If you know not then do not apply. For all of us no matter how you know God's words we are not here to learn - but to know how to please God. Be sincere, write and put His words in our hearts.

For example, whenever you have fight with your spouse remember your wedding day how you two have been so sweet. To recall the good times is to forget the bad times.

1 Peter 1:12 It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you, when they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.


The words and commandment given by the Lord; Love one another as I loved you. Remember how God provided for your needs.

On the other hand, the best way to learn is to teach, because when you teach you have to study. We need to always remember as 75% of what you hear will just go in and out of your ears but if you keep on hearing it only 25% will stay in your thoughts. The power of Practice and Repetition will instill the lessons in our brain.

To have endurance we need His words. Understand what is in the Last Days; mockers and false teachings will come. You might wonder where is Jesus? He promise He will come but God has it own time.
2 Peter 2:5-7 5if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others; 6if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; 7and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men

God did promise He will not destroy Earth in water or flood again but He never promise He will not destroy Earth in fire.

Revelation 20:9 They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them.

God is eternal He has no beginning and end.

2 Peter 2:9 if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.

We sin everyday but God give us a chance to repent and turn away from our sin.

Romans 2:4 Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness leads you toward repentance?



Matthew 9:4 Knowing their thoughts, Jesus said, "Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts?


Free from the love of money - for it is the root of all evil.

Remember the chicken and the pig story. That's the picture of true commitment.

Pastor's Message
2 Timothy 1:7 "For God did not give us a spirit of timidity but a spirit of power, of Love and self-discipline."

The word timidity means "fear or shyness". As believers of Christ, we should not be timid to share our faith to others. For the spirit of timidity does not come from God. So I encourage you to use your spiritual gifts and share your faith for God's greater glory!

"Walk in His Ways" from 1 Kings 16

In this chapter 1 Kings 16, all the bad kings of Israel are mentioned.

Baasha = means bad or wicked.

For us in order to walk in His ways we must listen to His words in the Bible. There were many warnings in the Bible but we don't want to listen. And in return, we will just reap what we sow.

Elah = means strong.

You fail, I fail, we all fail, but do you still want to continue the negative things you did and continue it on to the next chapter?
This is NOT just for unbelievers but for all of us believers Christians.

For example, when the world want to escape the problems of life - people get drunk. Drunkenness has killed more man, than being killed at the war. In our life today there are many areas to check: these are our heart, jealousy, anger, covetousness and gossip...

Another thing is according to facts, over 19 million of sex magazines are being sold because many people want lust - it's the reality of the worldly things today. Pornography has the biggest catch in the businesses today.

Zimri reign for only seven days, he commit suicide.

Whether you're unbeliever or believer in this world every 16 seconds there are people who commit suicide. Sometimes in our heart we cause division.
Ephesians 4:5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism;

We should have unity and not comparing ourself to others.

Who was the most evil king of Israel?
1 Kings 16:30 Ahab son of Omri did more evil in the eyes of the LORD than any of those before him.


The issue is the heart again and again to check our heart. Do not judge for you will also be judge. Check your own heart first before looking to the mistakes of others, and do the gossip!
2 Timothy 3:1-5
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.

"Walk in the Truth" from 2 Peter 2

Walk in Truth from 2 Peter 2

Today, there are so many business (that people don't know are sinful earnings) in order to earn money like piracy.
Peter told us about false teachers and teachings. As Christians we need to walk in the truth. The purpose of this book is to assure us and let us know Jesus will come back.
How to know the false teachings and are only cult?
If the preacher always talks about money and physical blessings that is one sign.

1 Timoty 6:5 and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.



Don't worry stay on tract and stick with Jesus. We are not fighting against flesh and blood but spiritual war.
In today's society we welcome homosexuality and all other who follow corrupt desire and sinful nature. But God will surely rescue the righteous man, just as like Lot was rescued in Sodom and Gomorrah.
(research Jim Jones and YFZ group)
We don't serve the ministry to have money. We should be faithful in serving God. We serve God because we love Him.
We should not sell anything at the church - it was design for worship.

Matthew 8:12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.


Pastor's Message
2 Thessalonians 3:13 "Never tire of doing what is right"

We know that doing what is right pleases God, but sometimes we are exhausted to do the what is right because God is faithful, He will not forget your work for Him. God bless.

"Be Fully Committed" from 1 Kings 15

Be fully Committed from 1 Kings 15

Have you heard the of the humanist teachings?
They don't have any right nor wrong. As long as you don't hurt anybody that's fine. And if you steal other people goods is fine as long as you help other people.

For us Christians we follow what's right and wrong. Dedicated and loyal to God.

We should not tolerate our children to do minor sins, always correct them and be firm in discipline.
Do what is right in the eyes of the Lord and NOT in the eyes of man.


Matthew 10:25 It is enough for the student to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebub, how much more the members of his household!

Love God first forget about family and friends.

Every time we commit a sin and even if we ask for forgiveness there will always be consequences in our actions. Be careful to use your living body as sacrifice not to compromise our faith.

The number 1 sin in our daily life is gossip and lie - all forms of lies be it a white lie is still a lie.
Some people can't live without seeing (all the negative of the other persons) and spreading a gossip (talks) to other people.


We all sin.

But for all of us to fully commit ask a little portion of the Holy Spirit ask God to refresh you and remind you.

For reference in the names seen at 1 Kings 15

Asherah - the (false) goddess of sexuality.
Jehoshapath - Jehovah judges.
Baasha - means wicked.

"Remember" from 2 Peter 1:12-25

The purpose of this book is to be aware of false teachings.

For us, Christians we learn a lot from His words but we forget and so we need to be reminded -to remember His Love. The first thing we receive from God is our salvation. In every teachings we should learn the basic.

We use the meaning of the word but we often forgot.

Its not how much you come but how it came to you as you absorb it from the heart. Remember the basic of Love. To put it in your mind and maintain the basic, though we have advance learning never forget the basic.

We need to be refresh and stir up our memory. The word of God is like water that refreshes the soul. To be absent to the body is to be present to the Lord.

John 21:18 I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go."


Every word we need to take it by heart. We need to be reminded of that.

Deuteronomy 6:6-9 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.


Luke 3:22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."


The father said it to Jesus with you I'm well please.

We need to stay attention to His words look upon His words.

Psalm 119:1-5 Blessed are they whose ways are blameless,
who walk according to the law of the LORD.

2 Blessed are they who keep his statutes
and seek him with all their heart.

3 They do nothing wrong;
they walk in his ways.

4 You have laid down precepts
that are to be fully obeyed.

5 Oh, that my ways were steadfast
in obeying your decrees!


Who was the bright morning star? Look at...

Revelation 22:16 "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you[a] this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."


Jesus Christ was the bright morning star.

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,


This talks about new and old scriptures. Don't doubt what the Bible says.

Pastor's Message
2 Thessalonians 3:16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.

Our God is so amazing that he poured out His grace upon us. His grace which is the gift of God that we don't deserve. May we truly embrace that grace and experience His eternal encouragement and good hope.

"Be Change" from 1 Kings 14

Many books can inform us but only the Bible can transform us.

Many Christians sometimes pretend to be someone else but everything is uncovered to the eyes of God. He wants us to change from inside out.

Think about when we're eating we need to chew the food very well to absorb the vitamins and minerals in the food.

Psalm 119:9-11
9 How can a young man keep his way pure?
By living according to your word.

10 I seek you with all my heart;
do not let me stray from your commands.

11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.


Psalm 32:1 Blessed is he
whose transgressions are forgiven,
whose sins are covered.


If we want to be productive - we need to have the fruit of the spirit. We need to set to the goodness of God. Sometimes God remind us to the Christians songs we hear, be transform for God.

Deuteronomy 23:3 No Ammonite or Moabite or any of his descendants may enter the assembly of the LORD, even down to the tenth generation.

Psalm 115:4-8
4 But their idols are silver and gold,
made by the hands of men.

5 They have mouths, but cannot speak,
eyes, but they cannot see;

6 they have ears, but cannot hear,
noses, but they cannot smell;

7 they have hands, but cannot feel,
feet, but they cannot walk;
nor can they utter a sound with their throats.

8 Those who make them will be like them,
and so will all who trust in them.


Bronze in the Bible is symbol of judgement.

Sometimes we feel we are not blessed, but God wants us to change in our life.
Allow God's work and Spirit to change our life.
