Behold, I am coming soon!

Day 40 (15 Sept 2017, Friday)

Have you ever queued up for an hour to get a seat at a restaurant?  You heard that the food was really the best and worth to wait.  After you finally get seated and ordered, you wait yet another 45 minutes before the ‘most delicious’ food comes.  By this time, I am not sure if you are still all excited about the food you were hoping for.  Some may storm out instead of waiting.

Others can go on a tirade a complains.  And yet others, fill their stomachs with peanuts and drinks until they lose their appetite.  Ultimately, you determine your own reaction to the situation.  Likewise, you determine you own reaction as you await the blessed hope of Jesus Christ.

Unlike physical food which can disappoint, the blessed hope will not disappoint because it is not about what mansion you will be getting, what rewards you will have, etc.  The blessed hope is “our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:13) Himself.  It is the Giver and not he gift that we seek.  Jesus proclaimed, “Behold, I am coming soon!” (Revelation 22:7,12).  As you come to the end of the 40 day fast and pray, I hope you will never stop expecting the blessed hope.  “May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word” (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17).

Amen.  Come, Lord Jesus.

Declaration of the Lordship of Jesus Christ over our land

We decree an increase of Your Kingdom’s rule and reign over our nation and the nation of the world!
We declare a new generation of leaders who will answer the call to govern with the fear of God in their lives.
We decree, “Your Kingdom come” in every sphere of society: political, economic, social, religious, judicial, military, education, media and the arts.  Position, therefore, godly and righteous men and women in every high place to serve Your purposes and to align our nation to Your heavenly blueprint.

Let every tongue and tribe praise You, O God; may all the peoples praise You.  Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God, will bless us.  Nothing is impossible with You!
We shall enter a new season of signs, wonders and miracles!  The Church of Jesus Christ in Malaysia is blessed and we will be a blessing to our land!

May God be gracious to us and bless us and make His face shine upon us, that Yours ways may be known in our land, Your Salvation among all peoples!
