A fiery sermon- Beautiful sermon without words.......

Dear brothers and sisters,

A member of a church, who previously had been attending services regularly, stopped going. After a few weeks, the preacher decided to visit him.

It was a chilly evening. The preacher found the man at home alone, sitting before a blazing fire. Guessing the reason for his preachers visit, the man welcomed him, led him to a comfortable chair near the fireplace and waited.

The preacher made himself at home but said nothing. In the grave silence, he contemplated the dance of the flames around the burning logs. After some minutes, the preacher took the fire tongs, carefully picked up a brightly burning ember and placed it to one side of the hearth all alone then he sat back in his chair, still silent.

The host watched all this in quiet contemplation. As the one lone ember's flame flickered and diminished, there was a momentary glow and then its fire was no more. Soon it was cold and dead.

Not a word had been spoken since the initial greeting. The preacher glanced at his watch and realized it was time to leave. He slowly stood up, picked up the cold, dead ember and placed it back in the middle of the fire. Immediately it began to glow,once more with the light and warmth of the burning coals around it.

As the preacher reached the door to leave, his host said with a tear running down his cheek, 'Thank you so much for your visit and especially for the fiery sermon. I shall be back in church next Sunday.'

We live in a world today, which tries to say too much with too little.Consequently, few listen. Sometimes the best sermons are the ones left unspoken.

Let pray about it,

James

Anyone who loves HIM will receive all the inheritance from the HEAVEN. Revelation 21:7.

Love,

LET THE TRUTH SET YOU FREE

Dear brothers and ssiters,

We, at this blog, are always seeking the truth and we believe that you seek you will find it. That's the word from the above and not from us. Though the blog is meant to lift you up. Here, we like to share with you that the "you" as the blog means it is referring to us as well. You may ask how can it happened. Thank to The above, from the above who has revealed to us that what we wrote here is from Him, hence you is refer to anyone and everyone on earth, including ourselves.

Nothing is impossible to the above. That's why you see miracle - is not suspension of natural law, but subject to higher law (Divine Law).

Today, we write to let us know the good news that the Truth will set you free completely, from all illnesses, fears, doubts, everything and anything on earth. You will attain this only through His Word, which give life, resurrection, anything and everything. That's why our Heavenly Father wants us to ground His word in our hearts and souls. Once it is properly rooted in the soul with His word, it will grow until it attain exactly like His only and begotten Son. His Son has shown us through the entire process - He has finished the work. To save the world and not condemn the world. (Read John 3:16) From here, we will be able to see the impossible and realize that the Heavenly Father want the best for whoever believe Him, through His Son. The Heavenly Father wants the best for all who believe in Him. He never use force, but give you free will to choose. He also knows that whoever see this, have aligned his heart and soul to His perspective and truly understand Him completely. Then the individual will submit to Him voluntarily and completely trust Him.


Now you can see that He wants you to live your life to its fullest - no complain in everything and anything. Never doubt He is in control every second. What we need to do is to stay focus on Him and Him to guide you accordingly. Pray to Him and listen to His voice and response to it accordingly. Do not let the event surrounding you influence you, stay focus on Him.

He is in control all the times and we must ensure that our soul stay connect to Him, just like the vine and the branch, the branch will continue to draw the nutrient from the vine. Similarly, we also need to draw His grace so that we can grow and stay alive forever and ever. He knows everything and anything and He is in everywhere. He wanted to guide us until His word really grow in our heart and soul to its fullest, exactly like He did to His Son.

Whoever believe His Son, will be accepted by Him as His son. Similarly He also will give you the best, nothing but the best which will truly set you completely free. So that you will not fear anything and even fear itself exactly written in Philippians 4:13 I can do everything through Christ, who strengthen me.

He will show you everything and you are fully convince and convicted that you are assured of what you hope for. What fear will you have, which is worse than death. Look at all saints who have completed the race, never even afraid of death because His word says whoever believe in Him will have eternal life.

In this connection, may I share with you a good news. The good news is that God loved the world so much that he gave His one and only Son. Anyone who believes in Him will not die but will have eternal life.(John 3:16)

Here, it well illustrate that you don't need to do anything like your carnal mind told you, but just believe in Him because He has done everything for us. That's why He cried out " Finished" and He has completed the mission His Father has given to Him. He has done everything to save you and I because we, human beings, cannot do good by our own selves. Therefore, it is not appropriate for us to help ourselves.

That's the Heavenly Father has the integral plan, from Mosses to Christ. The whole episode to complete His master plan. One man (Adam) sin, the world sin. Similarly One man (Christ) save, the world being save. We must always get the equation right.
Similarly, the law through Mosses is temporary or act as Tutor and Grace through Christ complete the whole of the Heavenly Father's plan. We must align to His understanding. You can only be saved by Grace and not Law. That's why He say the Law will not perfect you, otherwise Christ died on Cross in vain.


It is so simple and to be fruitful you must trust Him wholeheartedly with my body, mind and soul. It is simple yet true. It may appear too good to be true, yet it is the truth. He knows everything and anything because He is a mighty and living God, who creates the earth and heaven far earlier than we were born. He can even number our hairs, which we ourselves do not know even though it is being part of us.

The above well illustrate how much He loves us so much and want the best and not the second best for us. He is sovereign, and wanted to give the best to us exactly what He has given to His Son, Jesus Christ. Similarly, He want you to inherit everything, like His Son. He treat you equally important like His Son and want you to inherit all and everything He has.

By now, you are able to see all these crystal clear His intention for the good of yourself. Therefore, let Him continue to guide us and we will press on to attain the goal He laid for us.

His word, which is forever true and will not change over time.

We, at this blog, will continually write what we receive from Him - the Truth because the Truth will bring glory to Him and believe that everything is from Him. That is appropriate that everything shall go back to Him.

More importantly is that we, at this blog wish every visitor will receive the best, which is from the above.

See you online again,

With love,


James Oh

THE TRUTH WILL PREVAIL

Dear brothers and sisters,

Technology has evolved and made the world smaller. Everything is possible by clicking a few buttons. Easy, fast, effective and efficient - that is the new trends for every business transactions and dealings, so to speak.

As a result of this new development, INTERNET has become the most powerful device today to communicate with the rests of the world. It is very easy and fast to communicate with anyone without much barriers so long as the other can access to it.

Therefore, we, at this blog, urge you not to be afraid of it especially those are not well verse of it. Practice, practice and practice - you are assured of mastering the skill. Nothing will be worse than fear, itself. People fear because of uncertainty of its results or consequences.

One of the common ways to communicate your views, opinions, thoughts, ideas and etc through blogs. Blogs are used to express individual views, experiences, and knowledge on certain topics under discussion.

A string of comments will normally follow the blog topic until it is withdrawn and put into an archive or destroyed. It is therefore can be a good reference or the way to impart individual knowledge for betterment of the world.

Normally, when using blogs, the participant keys in the message and once done, it would be uploaded into the blog spot. The ideas, expressions are almost spontaneous and do not go through the mind of the blogger. In this way, it is reflect an honest and will not be tainted with any bias, favour or fabrication.

The process takes place either instantly or would only be uploaded after the message has been censored and edited.

Which is the best mode for blog messages, free or censored? Many of you might say free. I too prefer the same.

However, there are some arguments that it may be abused of the freedom allowed in the blog message. Similarly it can be true that the irresponsible and inconsiderate checker or censors may also abused the authority entrusted to that person, which I trust everyone is clear and do not need any further illustration.

We, at this blog, do understand that either way never solve this fundamental issue, well proven in the history books. What is more pertinent issue is to have a clean heart and whatever you do always do it with sincere and conscious mind, heart and soul. What goes around will come around.

Let us pray hard and our hearts and souls be guided by the mighty and living God, who knows everything , more than ourselves.

See you online again. Please leave your comments or feedback should you have any. Thank you in advance,


With love,
James Oh

I ASK GOD

Dear brothers and sisters,

I ASK GOD
I asked God to take away my pain.
God said, No
- It is not for me to take away,
but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No
- Her spirit was whole,
her body was only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No
- Patience is a by-product of tribulations;
it isn't granted, it is earned.

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No
- I give you blessings.
Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No
- Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No
- You must grow on your own,
but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No
- I will give you life
so that you may enjoy all things.

I ask God to help me LOVE others,
as much as he loves me.
God said...
Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

YOU MAY NOT LIKE TO LISTEN,
BUT GOD SAYS NO
FOR YOUR BENEFIT
HE SHOWS THAT HE CARES FOR YOU
IT IS NO EASY FOR HIM TO SAY NO
BECAUSE HE IS TRULY CARE ABOUT YOU
BY SAYING NO FOR YOUR GOOD

SO TRUST HIM WHOLEHEARTEDLY AND LET HIM REVEAL THE TRUTH TO YOU.
WALK BY FAITH, AND NOT BY SIGHT

With love,

JAMES Oh

HAVE FAITH

Have Faith, My Friend

Whenever there's a problem,
Wherever there's despair
Just bow your head in prayer and know
That God will always be there.

When things look bleak and dreary,
When it seems that no one cares,
Have faith, my friend, in our Lord
And he will answer all your prayers.

I know sometimes it's hard,
Things don't seem to work out right,
But it truly is quite pointless
To kick or scream or fight.

When you really need an answer,
On HIM you can depend.
Only FAITH can move a mountain -
So, have FAITH in God, my brother and sister!


With Love,

James Oh

FUNDAMENTAL FLAW ON THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE - RICK WARREN

Dear treasured visitors,

I received this book, a gift from a friend of mine, and I have read it several times. I found more and more  disagreements with what have been said in this book. I pray to God directly and He reveals the Truth to me, far different from the truth written in the book. I am very convinced that my disagreements are inspired by God.

As such, I can't think of any better option, than to publish such revelation at this blog.

The Holy Spirit reveals to me that only His grace can set me free from the slavery of sin, I can only be born again this manner (baptism through the spirit) and not the way advocated in the book "The Purpose Driven Life" by Mr Rick Warren.

Initially, I read this book and found some disagreements. However, recently I read again and most assuredly convinced and convicted that the truth advocated by him ( Mr Rick Warren), is far different from the Truth.

I do strongly believe that the Truth revealed to me is purely from His grace and not from the understanding of my flesh (carnal mind – which may deceive me to have Righteous understanding of the Truth). I say so because the Truth, shall prevail no matter or whatsoever we, human beings, suppressed or oppressed it. It shows that the Divine power is far greater than our power, even thought we put our forces together.

I am most certain that God does not even have to use His slightest force because of His nature as God. He knows that our own action (disobedience of His word) will bring destruction to us ( without His slightest efforts and force)

I found this entire book does not speak along the spirit of Truth , i.e. according to the God’s perspective. He is more incline of using human wisdom to explain the truth; which not occasionally undermine the Divine power; but is fundamentally wrong. We pray to God to reveal the Truth to him.

I do understand that God knows what have been transmitted. Otherwise, such Truth will not prevail to me and many others (whom I do not know). He, who came after John the baptism, is far greater than him (John, the Baptist), who will baptism you with the Holy Spirit. It is affirmed the Truth that Jesus is far greater John. Do you recall the thief who hung next to Christ who believed Christ at the very last minute. He was saved despite not being baptised by water.That's consistent to what John the baptist tried to say.

Therefore, you can see that what is more important is not the act (baptism), but whether the individual is born again through the Holy Spirit – Fundamental starting point must be right. The Righteousness enable the individual to see the kingdom of God. The Law cannot make you perfect. If it can, then Christ died on the cross in vain.

May I take you through John 3: 3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Do not be surprised the fact that the author made such mistake. If we pay close attention to the Scripture, we will know why. The verses, below extracted from the book of John illustrated my point.

John 3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.

John 3:2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”

John 3:4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”

From the above, God knows that even the teacher of Jews did not understand this fundamental point. Such crucial point well recorded in the Scripture that it should not be ignored and neglected.

See you on line again to discuss further how the above book was far departed from the Truth,

God bless,

James OH

Do you ever wonder why John the baptism prophesied that the one who comes, after me, is much greater than me, who will baptize you with the spirit.

Here, you can see clearly that even the John Baptism also acknowledged and recognized that He is very much greater than him.

The truth reveals to me that He, who is the Lord, is alive since the day since we were created. One of the criminals, who was prosecuted on the cross, next to Him was also baptized by Him, either the day before he was born. It is because, Our Lord is with the Father. Alternatively, he was baptized by the Lord Jesus Christ, because He is already with the God at that time. Do not forget that Our Lord Jesus Christ is the one who can baptize anyone with the spirit, and not through the water either from sprinkle or sub-merge into the water as the ways we normally understand, is much greater than anyone on earth.

Similarly, it is not surprising that our Lord Jesus Christ can able to baptize anyone with the spirit even till to-date and forever because He is still alive, despite the fact that many people have seen that He already died as a man, but never forget the truth that He was resurrected by the Heavenly Father. Therefore, let us no in doubt that He is still alive and able to do so forever and ever. Trust, by now, you are convicted and convinced to this fundamental truth.

Let us be very clear on these issue, and serve Him mightily and do not debate this issue any longer and save the time from entering into unnecessary debate. Let us be born again so that we can see the kingdom of God, exactly described in John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Let us pray to Him and ask Him to reveal even to you if you have other interpretation than the above.

See you again, let us sharpen each other so as to use the rest of our life to serve Him mightily because God has done so much for us, despite our rebellion against Him, exactly reflected in John 3:16. “For God so love the world that He gave His only and begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not be perished but have everlasting life.

His obedient servant,

James Oh
