i remember the days when i had to carry around the heavy fieldpack in the army. not because i want to, but because i had to.
its been awhile that i had such stress / burden on my back, physically or spiritually.
time to put my backpack on and grow His kingdom!
hello 2011!!! =D

Professor : You are a Christian, aren't you, son?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor : So, you believe in GOD?
Student : Absolutely, sir.
Professor : Is GOD good?
Student : Sure.
Professor : Is GOD ALL - POWERFUL?
Student : Yes.
Professor : My Brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to
help others who are ill. But GOD didn't. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?
(Student was silent)
Professor : You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fella. Is GOD Good?
Student : Yes.
Professor : Is Satan good?
Student : No.
Professor : Where does Satan come from?
Student : From...GOD...
Professor : That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this World?
Student : Yes.
Professor : Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
Student : Yes.
Professor : So who created evil?
(Student did not answer)
Professor : Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the World, don't they?
Student : Yes, sir.
Professor : So, who created them?
(Student had no answer)
Professor : Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and Observe The World around you. Tell me,
son...have you ever seen GOD?
Student : No, sir.
Professor : Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?
Student : No, sir.
Professor : Have you ever Felt your GOD, Tasted your GOD, Smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any
Sensory Perception of GOD for that matter?
Student : No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor : Yet you still believe in HIM?
Student : Yes.
Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn't exist.
What do you say to that, son?
Student : Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor : Yes, Faith. And that is the problem Science has.
Student : Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Professor : Yes.
Student : And is there such a thing as Cold?
Professor : Yes.
Student : No, sir. There isn't...
(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events)
Student : Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat, Superheat,
Mega Heat, White Heat, a Little Heat or No Heat. But we don't have anything called Cold. We can hit 458
Degrees below Zero
Which is No Heat, but we can't go any further after that.
There is no such thing as Cold.
Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of Heat.
We cannot Measure Cold.
Heat is Energy.
Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.
(There was pin-drop dilence in the Lecture Theatre)
Student : What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as
Professor : Yes. What is Night if there isn't Darkness?
Student : You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the Absence of Something.
You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light...
But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and its
Called Darkness, isn't it? In reality, Darkness isn't. If it is,
You would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn't you?
Professor : So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student : Sir, my point is, your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor : Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student : Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue
There is Life and then there is Death, a Good GOD and a Bad GOD. You are
Viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure.
Sir, Science can't even explain a Thought. It uses Electricity and
Magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one.
To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant of the fact that
Death cannot exist as a Substantive Thing.
Death is Not the Opposite of Life, just the Absence of it
Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your Students that they evolved from
Professor : If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process,
yes, of course, I do.
Student : Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the
argument was going)
Student : Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at
work and Cannot even prove that this Process is an On-Going Endeavor,
Are you not teaching your Opinion, sir?
Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?
(The Class was in uproar)
Student : Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the
(The Class broke out into laughter)
Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's
brain, felt it, touched or smelt it?...
No one appears to have done so.
So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable
Protocol, Science says that you have No Brain, sir. With all due respect,
sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?
(The Room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face
Professor : I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student : That is it sir...Exactly!
The Link between Man & GOD is FAITH.
That is all that Keeps Things Alive and Moving.
That student was ALBERT EINSTEIN
Awesome read! ha.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
i admit i was pretty lost over the 1st half of year 2010. simply roaming around doing things i've never think i would have done or accomplish. majority being negative and wordly.
rest assure its the past, i'm back :)
a few things that i've wanted to focused on
1. Cell Group
i always wanted to rise up in the cg ministry. many times when things are going well and i do alot for cg, somehow some tough situation will come along and sweep me away. happened so many times, not gonna let it happen again!
sometimes i wonder why, i can't really speak well, alot of times i talk people dun understand, or dun listen. haha. lets not talk about preaching.. sometimes i share offering ppl also dunno what i'm trying to say. AWESOME!
but i'm learning to love ppl, still not wanting to give up YET. not yet!
someone once said that maybe its because i'm nt serving God, thats why all those random depressing stuffs are happening in my life. which could be true, that was the main reason why i chose to start serving in security ministry.
up till today, i realise i've learn much, about the ministry, and alot about myself. i'm happily serving with a smile =D wanna join security? yes we need u! JOIN!!!
well lastly being work. customer service is draining, really draining, VERY DRAINING! i smile like crazy, so much that the smile remains with me like all the time? hoho. challenging at first, it has since become pleasurable and satisfying when i see ppl smiling back at me, thanking me for great and polite service. that is shoik! but well, i've yet to meet angry and shouting customers. thank God! but i know i can be better!
i use to 'run' away from certain people or situation. but this verse kept me along.
FEAR NOT for i am with you
i actually found this in a iphone app by Phil Pringle. very encouraging, very edfying. iphone users download it today!
i want to be better, more professional, a great teller that makes a difference =)
i want that short 5 minutes to be such a time of blessing and joy.
now u know what u can pray for. haha
i know that by putting God first, all these can be added onto me. its true.
that leads me to my 2nd verse.
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
i've recently applied for part time studies @ sim.
and i'm IN! praise God for that!!!
but well, the worrying part would be the sch fees which amount to around 24000++
but yet that verse encourages me, i knew God will provide.
i then applied for a study grant in my company, it is worth $8000. sure took them awhile to approve man.. for weeks i was praying, confessing phil4:19 wherever i go, it was actually my wallpaper on the iphone. hoho. and God is really good!
LAST WEEK IT GT APPROVED!! SIGNED THE OFFER 2 days ago. grinning from ear to ear. hehe.
God will never shortchange us.
i believe it is out of the giving from so many years, God is indeed my provider! and i'm sure He would love to bless u too! ha
this is what i have on my blackboard at home:
start writing God's promises today!!!
with that i come to and end.
keep seeking, keep knocking, keep giving!!!
God's blessing is coming your way =)
ps: i just realise that the older post are still there. i've removed the lousy ones, enjoy the great memories! =D

And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Ephesians 4:30
In the Scripture, the Holy Spirit is often likened to a dove. The dove is known as a bird of peace and it is extremely sensitive to anything that disrupts the serenity of its environment. That is why doves are often found beside still waters. The Holy Spirit is easily grieved and chased away by sin, rebellion, disobedience, complaining, and wrong attitudes.
The Holy Spirit abides upon the life of a believer who is at peace with God and who has the righteousness and holiness of God worked out in his life. How not to grieve the Holy Spirit? The answer is given in Ephesians 4:31, “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.” Here, we see the ugliness of the old man that puts off the Spirit of God:
(1) Bitterness—the longstanding resentment in a person’s heart. Bitterness often enters into a person’s heart when he has been wronged and betrayed. Disappointing circumstances can also cause bitterness. The terrible thing about bitterness is that it not only affects the one who is bitter and tormented by it, but it also defiles and affects others. To overcome bitterness, you need to develop a holy acceptance of all situations and a forgiving spirit.
(2) Wrath—hot anger or passion. It is a very intense form of anger. Wrath burns like fi re within the breast of a person, but it has the habit of subsiding just as quickly as it was stirred up. It can only be cooled by not meditating upon the person who has offended you.
(3) Anger—a strong feeling of hostility. Paul is not speaking here of the godly anger against sin (4:26), but anger that is one of the works of the fl esh. A person becomes angry when he does not get his own way and often fl ies into a temper tantrum. The antidote to anger is a submissive spirit.
(4) Clamor—a propensity to shout loudly or to create an uproar because of a controversy or dispute. The antidote is to major on the peace of God.
(5) Evil speaking—this refers to insulting language. Let us esteem others better than ourselves, and speak respectfully of them.
(6) Malice—the desire to harm others or to see them suffer. A person with malice is vicious and seeks to harm others. The antidote to malice is to seek the best for others. The attitudes mentioned above will surely grieve the Holy Spirit. The attributes that will attract the Holy Spirit are being “kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you” (4:32).
