News 11 January 2015 Morning Devotion PIC：Rev. Esther & Amos Date 13/1/2015(Tue) 14/1/2015 (Wed) 15/1/2015 (Thu) 16/1/2015 (Fri) Books Deuteronomy Deuteronomy Deuteronomy Deuteronomy Chapter 10 11 12 13 Essence of Sunday Sermon Words from Senior Pastor Knowledge - a prerequisite for victories A New Generation that Receives the Promise Deu chapter 1 The steering Committee and we had a 2-day ◎Rev. Esther Kong I. Walk out from the memory of shame (Deu 1: 1 - 2). Kadesh-barnea has the meaning of holiness. It was originally the entry point into the land of Canaan, God’s Promised Land to the people of Israel. But because of their lack of faith, disobedience and grumbles, they had lost the privilege to enter into this land. God does not require us to make a comprehensive plan but to believe in His promise. If the Israelites had had the faith, they would not fail and had to wait in shame for 40 years. Now, God wants them to walk out from shame and enter into the future. retreat. We felt very positive as it helped draw us closer together, with a much higher degree of openness, rapport and mutual acceptance. When we experience a break through in our relationship with God, and no longer fearful of Him, our relationships with people will also experience a corresponding break through. When our relationships with those who are closest to us, for example: spouses, children, parents and disciples, experience a break through, we will be empowered to lead disciples and the next generation, the atmosphere in the church will be much improved. Though problems may still remain, yet we would have now the life and power to confront them, and with much better results. As the saying goes : “When there is relationship, there will be no disconnection” . Within a relationally connected people group, many things can experience break through, bringing a sense of great hope. II. Follow the words of God (Deu 1: 3 – 5) Moses had used history to prove the truth in God’s word in order to build up the faith of the Israelites. 1) Overcame by fear (Deu 1: 19 – 21) The Israelites had lost the Promised Land because of their fear and despair. A) Rebelled against God’s command because of fear (Deu 1: 26) The Israelites had turned against God because of their weakness and fear. Fear is a scheme of the enemy to hinder us from advancing so that we miss out what God has prepared for us. There are things that adversely frustrate interpersonal relationships, e.g. fears of things or people, lack of faith for God or man; inferiority, low self esteem, thereby not willing to take the first step to connect with people; or perhaps due to pride, reluctant to be transparent; thinking instead he is infallible, no reason to say sorry even if wrong; little space to accept differences in others, etc. and all these will negatively affect cell group life. This year, Ps. Amos and I made a prayer, that the LORD will cause the whole of GA611 brothers and sisters to develop and enjoy very close relationships, be it husband and wife, or G-leader and his disciples, or Cell leader and his cell members, or between ministry teams. B) Had grudges because of fear (Deu 1: 27 – 28) Grudges bring negative emotions that will affect the surroundings and create an opening for the enemy that cause people to lose their faith in God and consequently lost God’s grace and blessing in vain. 2) Unbelieving heart (Deu 1: 29; 32) You would not be able to follow God closely and to experience His supernatural leadership in seemingly impossible situations if you do not trust Him completely. In the 2-day SCM Retreat, it was a very fruitful meeting to us. It sort of dawns on me that serving God can be so colorful and creative. This is not limited to ministries and service to one another, though this is important , other aspects must also not be neglected, and this will avoid getting into a life of regulations and rules. We had planned to do exercises together, but the frequent rains disrupted this plan. In the end, we chose to practice “towel exercises” indoor to worship music, to move and stretch our muscles. Besides, we conducted “DISC personality Test” , thus helping the group to understand better the individual personality traits and inclinations. God created all of us in a wonderful way, that every individual possesses very distinct personality traits, and each trait may have strength and weakness. For examples : D (Dominance)- a person with high D will tend to be forceful and demanding when facing pressures. I (Influence) - tends to be over-lenient; S (Steadiness)- tends to be self-compromising; C (Conscientiousness)- tends to be judgmental. In a team interactions, a person with D & I will show high energy to push forward, whilst a person with S&C will be slower etc… If persons with different personality traits are able to break out from own limitation, and serve God in collaboration with one another, one can only anticipate extraordinary impact from such team work. 3) Follow with a faithful heart will inherit the land (Deu 1: 36; 38) Joshua and Caleb were the only adults at that time to be able to enter into the Promised Land because they had followed the Lord closely. Through humble faith they had hold on to God who eventually led them into the abundance He had prepared and had called them to inherit the land. III. Humbly confess and repent from sin (Deu 1: 40) God had waited for the rebellious generation to pass on for the purpose that the new generation would have an opportunity to confess their sins, repent and to turn back to God. Not only God had mercy and refrained from punishing them, He had allowed them to inherit the land. God’s nature is to first grace then truth. We must always humbly come before God, to confess and repent from sin. God will certainly hear our prayers, bless us as well as help us. ■ 【This sermon message was delivered on Dec 28, 2014. Edited by Sec. of There is the Chinese saying, “Knowledge is the prerequisite for victories”. Mutual understanding, acceptance in Christ with mutual affirmation within a Cell, that will predispose the Cell Group to revival. When a church has God, the Holy Spirit and disciples, it is poised for break through and revival. editors】 As I listened to my core co-workers sharing their individual life awakening and break through experiences in 2014, I give thanks to God for them, because they had all boldly taken steps to reflect upon their lives, receiving self realization at different levels, and remained desirous of being molded by God to become a vessel fit for God’s use. This is a precious characteristic. If more bros. and sis. be willing to welcome life transparency, allow awakening in life, be ready to experience break through, the spiritual influence of a church will be greatly enhanced. ■ Special announcement: Prayer Tabernacle Rooftop 10 week-Renovation Work has commenced on 24/11.

The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. ” (Psa 19: 9-10 ) Jewish family values the importance of Scripture studying. When children begin their reading the Scriptures, they will lick the alphabets of the words spread over with honey. As a result, their first taste of the Scripture is that God’s words are “ sweet”! In 2015, let’s mobilize the whole family to taste the sweetness of the Bible and embrace His overflowing favor and wisdom! Enquiries: sis.
