Ephesians 4:11-12 (NKJV) 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
Jeremiah 1:10 (NKJV) See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant.”
Ephesians 4:15 (NKJV) but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ
Dear friends, I urge you to stay focus upon our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ and we will do the same thing that He did and is doing that is the Father’s WILL. We will ALL move in the same direction.
Distraction and Deception
In Matthew’s gospel chapter 24, Jesus was teaching His Apostles and Disciples about the end time and His 2nd coming. In that passage Jesus mentioned about deception 4 times to His leaders. Why? It’s possible for us [God’s people] to be deceived and be distracted from traveling in the “narrow path”. Leaders who sat with Jesus, walked with Jesus, worked with Jesus were distracted and failed to grasp the real reason Jesus came. Until the last day before Jesus was crucified, the apostles of Jesus were focused upon self; who is the greatest; about making a name for themselves [a competitive spirit]. The only way to counter this is to fix our eyes upon Jesus. As I urge you, I am also encouraging myself to do this.
Gathering together with like minded [Mind of Christ]
The author of Hebrews said “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together as is the manner of some but exhorting one another and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Many are deceived into thinking that when they attend service on Sunday and go for their cell group [or house group or whatever they call it (to be different from other local churches)] they are fulfilling Hebrews 10:25.
Questions we need to ask
1] Do we assemble around God [or around the senior pastors who want to make a name for themselves]? BTW there are senior pastors who are godly shepherds BUT very few around.
2] Do we assemble to consider one another [to think carefully about others]?
3] Do we assemble to stir up love?
4] Do we exhort each other to do God’s will?
5] Does our assembling together lead us into truth [what is seen and heard] or is making us into hypocrites?
6] Does our assembling together help us to become real truthful people?
Friends, we have set aside this whole month of December to rest and reflect and also to prepare for the coming 2013. We thank God for the opportunities [New Doors opened] we were given to teach and impart in Indonesia [Kupang / Semarang], Philippines [Pasig, Antipolo], Sri Lanka, Thailand [Songkla, Thung Song and Nakhon Si Thamarat] and Malaysia [Malacca, Sarawak and Penang]. We are praying that the old places be strengthened and established and for more new territories to open up this coming New Year. Praying that God will raise up more and more men and women who will stand with us with their prayers and substance and send us to the nations.
Romans 10:15 (NKJV) And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!”
Prayer for you
Father, we pray that you may continue to make our friends to increase and abound in love one for another and for all so that You may establish their hearts blameless in holiness before You, God and Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints. Amen.
