"Hold on to the Faith" from Revelation 3:7-13

Zondervan NIV Study Bible, Compact: Updated EditionFaithfulness with our walk with the Lord.

The most important thing is how you love the Lord today and not before.

Being Holy is not being perfect. We need the Holyness of God to hold on. Even the demons believe that Christ is Holy.

John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

1 John 5:20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true—even in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.

Isaiah 22:22 I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.

Zechariah 8:20 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Many peoples and the inhabitants of many cities will yet come,

James 1:12 Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

When God called the people to be with the Lord forever we better say "Amen"

Pastor’s Message
2 Thessalonians 3:1 "Finally, brothers, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored."
Apostle Paul was asking for prayer to his fellow believers. That the message of the Lord may spread rapidly. In other words he wants the Gospel to spread quickly. Why? I believe the reason is that he wants that many people will hear the message of the Gospel about Jesus Christ and be saved. We as Christians should be praying that the Gospel to spread and learn to love the lost because the time is running quickly.

"Wake Up" from Revelation 3:1-6

Nelson's New Illustrated Bible Dictionary: Completely Revised and Updated EditionSardis it is the great city of wealth and fame but it is also called the "dead church". Jesus Christ rebuke some of its member.

It is also important to refresh ourselves with God's word.

Sardis was a rich church but they fell into worshipping idols. Remember that we can worship any things in this world more than God.

Why does it talk about the 7 Spirits?

Seven was the completion as God created everything in 7 days.

The church of Sardis needs to be revived. When we talk about waking up, ask ourself, how do I relate it in our daily life?

We learn about so many things in this world, and for us to learn anything we need to always learn the basic first. This the same thing in our relationship with the Lord. We are so busy in our daily tasks that we forget the basic of what God wants us to do. Always remember what God has done for you and me, remember the cross.

Faith without deeds is dead. We need to wake up.

Revelation 3:1-2
1"To the angel of the church in Sardis write:
These are the words of him who holds the seven spirits[b]of God and the seven stars. I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.

Always think about God. Remember to go back to the basic. And there will be hope and it can be found in Christ alone. Remember all his blessings; the ability to see, walk and work. And for us to be spiritually awake remember God's Love, His mercy is new every morning.

Matthew 25:13 13"Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.

Hebrews 2:1 We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.

Another thing to keep in mind to be able us to wake up:
Be honest and admit there is something wrong with our heart and repent.

Pastor’s Message
Psalm 73:28a But as for me, it is good to be near God.
How good it is to be near God. We know that we need God’s presence all the time. And God will always be with us to guide and help us in our walk with him. Depend on Jesus everyday!

"Turn to God" from 2 Kings 19


Proverbs 3:5-6
5Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.

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



Though it is very hard for us; it is important to be humble and turn to God in prayer, as prayer is like breathing. Do not be worried as worrying is the opposite of believing.

F-false
E-evidence
A-are not
R-real

As human we are controlled by flesh sometimes we tend to solve our own problem. But we must pray to God.

Praying is not to inform God and request to Him as he already know what we are going through. Rather praying is worshipping and listening to God.

Jeremiah 33:3 'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
'

1 John 5:14-15
14This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.


He who learns how to pray will learn the secret of Holy and Blessed life.

"Be Pure" from Revelation 2:18-29

In colors, what do we use to symbolize pure?

It's white. Now if you mix black and white, what will be the outcome?

The outcome is Gray - in Christian life it is not Good to have an impure relationship with God. Though we are all under constructions we must keep on listening and be washed by the word of God.

What is repentance?
It is something we need to change and to stop doing with our sins.

Do you still worship idols?

Jesus knows whom we worship in our heart and He knows if you are serving Him well.

Jezebel - 1 Kings, the wife of King Aham. She influence King Aham to worship Baal. She is not a Jew. And she is very wicked.

We must Love God first. He is patient.

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?


It is only through repentance that we can avoid sins.

Luke 13:3 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.

Jeremiah 36:3 Perhaps when the people of Judah hear about every disaster I plan to inflict on them, each of them will turn from his wicked way; then I will forgive their wickedness and their sin."

Psalm 44:21 would not God have discovered it,
since he knows the secrets of the heart?

Romans 12:9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.

Revelation 22:7 "Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book."

Zondervan NIV Study Bible: Updated EditionPastor's Message
1 Thessalonians 1:3 We continually remember before our God and Father your (1) work produced by faith, (2)your labor prompted by love, (3)and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
In this verse there are 3 important things to remember:
1. FAITH 2. LOVE 3. HOPE IN CHRIST . We need these things to continue in our personal relationship with the Lord. And it will also help us to keep on serving our family, friends and all the people that we minister to. Let’s always remember this.

"Honor Your God" from 2 Kings 17

Worshiping is our lifestyle and idolatry need not to involve images of idol or stone; it is possible to worship such things as money, another person, or fame. What are some "idols" you might be tempted to worship?

Exodus 20:3-5
3 "You shall have no other gods before me.

4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,

We should not ask help in the enemy but rather ask help to God. Do not ask help to people who does not have God in thier life. Depend on God only. The source of encouragement is from God. We should not forget God.

Don't serve two masters at the same time.
Don't be a half Christians - fearing God and compromising thier sins.

"Jesus is Risen" From Matthew 28

Resurrection is a fact and real, He said to the people that I will be resurrected. Do you believe that Jesus rose from the death?

We Christians have hope and can find eternal life from Jesus resurrection.
We must believe Jesus is risen at the first day of the week.

We need to be joyful and not be afraid as Jesus is risen!

The "cross" was the payment and the "resurrection" was the receipt. Because Jesus prove it that we will go to heaven if we have faith.

Luke 24:36-38 36While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you."
37They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. 38He said to them, "Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds?


Jesus stayed with His disciples for 40 days after He is risen.

1 Corinthians 15:4-6 4that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. 6After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.


If you go to court you will need 3 witnesses to prove you're not guilty but these witnesses are more than 3 to prove Jesus has risen.

Doubting Thomas
John 20:24-29 24Now Thomas (called Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25So the other disciples told him, "We have seen the Lord!"
But he said to them, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it."
26A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you!" 27Then he said to Thomas, "Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe."
28Thomas said to him, "My Lord and my God!"
29Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."


Even in our trials and pains God is faithful He will never leave us. So stop doubting.

When someone is dying the last word is very important. And Jesus last words after His resurrection are very important.

Pastor's Message
John 11:25 I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies.


Jesus claimed that He is the resurrection and the life. And He proved it when He rose from the dead after 3 days when He died on the cross. In Him we can also find Life - Eternal life by believing God with all our hearts. Let's celebrate Jesus! Happy Easter!
