Pale Horseman of the Apocalypse on MSNBC

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

When I first received the YouTube link in my mailbox, I looked through it with a certain amount of scepticism. Don’

t get me wrong, I’m a Christian, but there are also many false views pretending to be this or that. However this Pale Horseman of the Apocalypse shown on MSNBC news covering the Egyptian riot was rather intriguing as the newsman didn’t edit it and was shown throughout the world. Now it has been uploaded by various people taken from various sources be MSNBC or other news network. (more…)

The Law of attraction – Why Some People Have All the Luck

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

Intriguing. Received this article from a friend about a study done to find out why some people have all the luck. After r

eading it, this brings to mind some of books written about the law of attraction, books like “The Secret” have been a block buster sale because it appeals to us about attracting good fortune. The earliest publication for this article that I found was in 22/Dec/2003 (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/3335275.stm) and since then many other websites and blogs have republished it and commented about it.

Basically, if one is positive in his outlook there tends to be a positive aura about him and somehow like attracts like, and good fortune would soon follow him. Positive is nothing new but it is something to think about and even practice it. Hey no harm following the findings if it brings you more “luck”! Some of my church members don’t like to associate a situation to good luck as that seems to represent some random chance on a roll of dice that gave you luck and would prefer to attribute the good fortune to blessing bestowed upon by God. So they rather call it good blessing than good luck. That’s another way of looking at things that Someone up there favours you and decided to give you a boon! (more…)

Can water be affected by our words?

Friday, June 11th, 2010

Can water be affected by our words spoken, emotions, music or even written word for that matter? Received this email message from my cousin, and it was rather intriguing though for most email with outrageous claims or phobias, I would do a quick check to see whether it is an urban legend or is there some truths in it. Some are no brainer like the scare email message I received about “reboiling water is harmful to you”, that one was a total scam written by someone who has no knowledge of basic chemistry.

Now this one takes a real big step of faith. After all we live in a strange world where many things are not quite easily explainable. And this one seems interesting, but the experiment done here hasn’t got acceptance by the scientific community. I would read it and perhaps give it a sprinkling of salt and keep it in mind. After all, the scientist did discover that faith actually aids in the healing process of hospital patients and prayers work though the scientist couldn’t prove it scientifically but they do have indirect empirical statistics that prayer does work in aiding healing.

Praise the Lord and the law of attraction

Friday, August 8th, 2008

Is it human nature to complaint and murmur? Perhaps that it is so. We can all be very pessimistic about life in general especially when life is giving us frustration sometimes caused by ourselves and sometime by our family members, friends, colleagues and people in authority over us. Taking the example of Exodus of God’s chosen people, they too complaint about their situation to God and Moses for taking them into the harsh condition of the desert, even though they have escaped from their cruel Egyptian masters.

Shop-house churches must get permits

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

This is rather sad state of affairs. Government is using rules and regulations to curb the Churches expansion. The fact was, they didn’t even notify either via the media about passing this new legislation. They quietly passed the bill and could easily wreak havoc by saying all the Churches in shop house are now illegal and they have just cause to close them down, unless they apply for permit. Should the permit be refused by placing all kinds of restriction, then what? (more…)

Forgiveness. This seems to be a recurring theme for the past week. My cell was having some discussion about forgiveness; and today I receive in my inbox a pdf file titled, “A letter to the Global Church from The Protestant Church of Smyrna” about the horrific murders on three Christians on the 18th April,2007 in Malatya, Turkey.

Keeping the faith for success

Sunday, May 6th, 2007

Prayers are good. The cry of desperation keeps me hungry for God and for success. Doesn’t make sense, but the Bible did mentioned that it easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. So perhaps what I’m experiencing now for the lack of true success for some of my venture is perhaps God’s way of saying, “Don’t trust in the mechanism of man, but trust in the Lord.” He did release me from an oppressive tyrant. And he did heal my wife’s skin rashes in day when we tried all kinds of medication to no avail. His Spirit was so strong during my Sabah mission trip that people were slain in the spirit when I prayed over them. (more…)

More trouble but gotta keep pressing on

Sunday, May 6th, 2007

Ouch! My water vending machine was attempted break in again! This will be the second time and the vandals broke my lock again! My home business is not going very well. Coin collection is not up to my expectation. Sheesh. I must be more careful in where I should invest my money. But I did do this out of desperation to find a way out the problem that I was facing from a tyrant boss previously. Sure God has brought me out of Egypt so to speak, but I still need to face the legacy of mess from the decision that I made. I should have been more patient but I was already almost like spiderman climbing up the walls on his impossible demands. (more…)

Overcoming life adversities

Saturday, May 5th, 2007

Fear is the mind killer. I shall not fear for the Lord is with me. But at times, you do feel the need to know where is God while you going through life challenges. Having gone through it, I know it was a very difficult situation to go through it.

Last Thursday, Janet who was in charge of Children Church together with her husband, Lena and I were making a visitation to family. To the mother actually. We made the decision to visit because her daughters were absent from Children Church for quite sometime now. (more…)
