We are very sure that some of you may be disappointed, demoralised and dumbfounded by the ugly news of Pastor Kong Hee and some of his key leaders, who were arrested and charged in the Singapore court for misappropriating church's and charity's funds. Of course, this will be a difficult time for them in particular and also the members of City Harvest Church as a whole.
Let us pray for the true repentance amongst those who have sinned against the Lord. We also pray for all other believers, regardless whether they are affected by this incident, to remain faithful to our only Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Be mindful that the weaknesses reflected by some believers does not in any way indicate the weakness of our God and His Churches.
In fact, it reveals the operation of our Heavenly Father's love, grace and mercy. The truth is that all can return in true repentance to the grace and forgiveness of a loving Father, just like the Prodigal son. Hence, the rest of the Body of Christ should also respond in a similar manner of grace, compassion and forgiveness.
Our Lord permit this for a reason. Now that's a strange statement to make because trouble is in the land; confusion all around. But one thing we must know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can we see the stars. And I see God working in this period of twentieth first century in a way that men, in some strange way, are responding.
Let us cry to our Lord that we want to be free.
