MOVEMENT of GOD in JESUS IN MONGKOK! LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS TO SEE MOVEMENT OF GOD!


MOVEMENT of GOD in JESUS IN MONGKOK! LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS TO SEE MOVEMENT OF GOD!

Friends,

I don't really know how to use my phone camera.  I need prayer because I take a photo and it uploads to my google plus...but I don't really know how to make the photo adjustments, etc.

Well, in this blog I will be showing you photos that I have taken that somehow have become gifs...moving photos...photos of movement.

I believe that JESUS has set up my phone camera to make these photos to show how we are ministering in the movement of God here in Hong Kong.

I never really understood this idea of God moving in every way in a quick manner from Heaven to Earth.

Here is an explanation from John Paul Jackson:
You can buy his materials at: 

Here is what he says about movement:
 Did you know that every element in Heaven is alive and moving? · Did you know that you were created with the need to communicate with God through movement? You have deep internal instincts and motivations that are driving you toward dynamic, passionate worship. · Learn about the interaction of motion, sound, light, color, and energy in Heaven. Everything that happens in the throne room is worship. · Learn how your worship on earth can--and is meant to--reflect that of Heaven. "To touch true worship, we must enter into the realm of the supernatural; we must enter into the realm of God. To do this, we must give ourselves the freedom, then, to experiment, because if you don't have the freedom to experiment, you are ruled by something other than your spirit . . . But this is exactly what David did when he danced with all his might on the road from Obed-Edom. He gave himself the freedom to experiment, and this allowed him to dance like he had never danced before!" · Hearing this message will open your eyes to the throne-room significance of your active, adventurous worship!

God Bless My Friends...Enjoy The Movement Of God Here In Hong Kong!

Yat Tung on Lantau Island IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD! Read More! Luke 14:16-22

Yat Tung on Lantau Island IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD! Read More!

Dear Friends,

Yat Tung has been a place that THE KINGDOM OF GOD has visited many times in the last few months.



First,  we invited everyone to our Women's Conference near Yat Tung at THE YMCA OF HONG KONG CHRISTIAN COLLEGE.  We had a great time and the ladies who came got to experience JESUS in a way they never thought possible!

We invited over a thousand ladies to come and we made 500 T-Shirts to celebrate who we are in JESUS and we made a thousand gift bags to celebrate JESUS and we filled the bags with Christian books and materials that were donated for the ladies to know that JESUS really loves them!

You have seen the photos and my apartment was filled with bags!  What a miracle!  God provided me with funds to get everything and we had great joy during the event!


As you know...many people were busy and couldn't come celebrate with us at The Women's Conference.  I was surprised.  Churches set-up events after our event because they decided that they wanted to host their own event!  When I heard about all of these new events being started I told JESUS:

"Thank You JESUS!  Our brothers and sisters in Christ realize that we cannot minister to thousands of people on July 1 so they are making their own events so we can all minister to hundreds of thousands of people on JULY 1!"

Hallelujah!!!


So at the end of the conference, a few friends and a rented van helped us to bring all the bags back to my apartment. We had several hundred T-Shirts left and over 500 bags left.

My mother prayed and the LORD JESUS told her to give most of the bags to people in YAT TUNG.  For us...YAT TUNG was the place that JESUS wanted the KINGDOM OF GOD to Come!  Today, we gave away our last bags in Yat Tung! and now we are celebrating for we fulfilled scripture:  23 The master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and country roads. Tell the people there to come. I want my house to be full! 





Luke 14:16-22

Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
16 Jesus said to him, “A man gave a big dinner. He invited many people. 17 When it was time to eat, he sent his servant to tell the guests, ‘Come. The food is ready.’ 18 But all the guests said they could not come. Each one made an excuse. The first one said, ‘I have just bought a field, so I must go look at it. Please excuse me.’ 19 Another man said, ‘I have just bought five pairs of work animals; I must go and try them out. Please excuse me.’ 20 A third man said, ‘I just got married; I can’t come.’
21 “So the servant returned and told his master what happened. The master was angry. He said, ‘Hurry! Go into the streets and alleys of the town. Bring me the poor, the crippled, the blind, and the lame.’
22 “Later, the servant said to him, ‘Master, I did what you told me to do, but we still have places for more people.’ 23 The master said to the servant, ‘Go out to the highways and country roads. Tell the people there to come. I want my house to be full! 24 I tell you, not one of those people I invited first will eat any of this food I prepared.’”


 So JESUS allowed us to have many gift bags so that we could give them away to people who would never come to church.  But they got a T-Shirt!  One man was so happy he put his T-Shirt immediately on...it was better than the other shirt he was wearing!
We are so thankful that JESUS allowed us to fellowship with many ladies at our Women's Conference, but we are so blessed that so many other ministries had their own functions on that day so that we could follow JESUS to the highways and byways of Yat Tung and bring the Kingdom of God there and see many people learn that JESUS loves them!

Amen!

Please pray that we will saturate more and more of Hong Kong outside of church ministries with the love of JESUS that HE has for everyone in Hong Kong!


God Bless You!

Do you know the secret to effective, powerful FASTING! Read more!


Do you know the secret to effective, powerful FASTING!  
Read more!

Fasting is not a binge-purge cycle that people have because they want to lose weight.  If a person is fasting to lose weight and they think that God wants people that are thin and fit, then they need to be very careful with their fasting.  Fasting that is done by someone because they want something, like to get powerful and to get their needs and prayers met is the wrong kind of fasting.

God wants us to first take care of orphans and widows as an act of fasting. He wants us to live just lives instead of fasting while we ignore the suffering that goes on around us.

Read Isaiah 58:3-9

‘Why have we fasted,’ they say,
    ‘and you have not seen it?
Why have we humbled ourselves,
    and you have not noticed?’
“Yet on the day of your fasting, you do as you please
    and exploit all your workers.
Your fasting ends in quarreling and strife,
    and in striking each other with wicked fists.
You cannot fast as you do today
    and expect your voice to be heard on high.
Is this the kind of fast I have chosen,
    only a day for people to humble themselves?
Is it only for bowing one’s head like a reed
    and for lying in sackcloth and ashes?
Is that what you call a fast,
    a day acceptable to the Lord?
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
    and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
    and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
    and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
    and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
    and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness[a] will go before you,
    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
    you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

Now...when you live justly it is ok to FAST something and spend more time with God.

We shouldn't look like we are suffering. We shouldn't fast so we don't eat with those around us like on a Sunday.  We should fast secretly.

Here are some tips from MIKE BICKLE on Fasting that are helpful.  I lived in Kansas City and I saw many people get sick from Binge-ing and Purging their bodies because they had a poor self-image.

Don't fast to hurt your body.  Just fast to spend a little extra time with GOD! He wants to spend time with you. He doesn't want your vomit and your sickness because of not eating. He wants you to have proper nutrition and to be happy in your mind, heart and body.

From Mike Bickle:

A. Fasting is always voluntary. Though leaders may invite others to join in a corporate fast, with a specific goal in mind, and for a specific time, fasting can never be forced or mandated. Therefore, fasting is not a requirement for the IHOP–KC staff or community.


B. The level at which a person engages in fasting from food should be determined according to age and physical limitations. Those with a physical disability, illness, or eating disorder should not fast, except under the supervision of a physician. Minors are discouraged from fasting food. Minors who desire to fast are encouraged to consider non-food abstentions, such as TV, movies, Internet, video games, and other entertainment. The Bible never calls children to fast food.

C. Five rewards of the Bridegroom Fast:
1. Fasting tenderizes our hearts so that we feel God’s presence more.
2. Fasting changes our desires and enlarging our desire for righteousness (Heb. 1:9).
3. Fasting increases our understanding of the Word and receiving prophetic dreams.
4. Fasting makes our body healthier and changes what we desire to eat and drink.
5. Fasting strengthens our sense of identity—as sons of God, before the Father, and as the Bride, before the Son. Our identity becomes rooted in knowing God’s affection for us. 

 I.  THE Bridegroom Fast: encountering God’s love (Mt. 9:14-15)
A.  Jesus spoke of the apostles fasting out of their desire to encounter Him. We call this the “Bridegroom fast.” It is motivated by desire for Jesus, rather than by desire for more power in ministry or to be delivered from a personal crisis, etc. This was a new paradigm of fasting.
14Then the disciples of John came to Him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but Your disciples do not fast?” 15And Jesus said to them, “Can the friends of the Bridegroom mourn as long as the Bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the Bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast.” (Mt. 9:14-15)
B. The disciples enjoyed Jesus’ presence, feeling loved by Him and rejoicing in their relationship with Him. Jesus told them that the joy they experienced in His nearness would change to mourning, or longing, when He was taken from them by His death—when the joy of His immediate presence had been taken from them, they would be heartsick. Then they would fast!

Remember, to FAST by spending time with JESUS and you will see wonderful happens!

Last thing to remember...FASTING does not cause your parents or loved-ones to be saved...only you being consistently kind to them will lead them to JESUS!!! Remember that and be patient!

I'll write more about that issue later!

Have a great weekend!

Do You Minister to Taxi Driver's? I will share with you some secrets to ministering to TAXI DRIVERS! Read More!

Do You Minister to Taxi Driver's?  I will share with you some secrets to ministering to TAXI DRIVERS! Read More!

If a history is ever written about JESUS IN MONGKOK, they will write about how GOD used taxi drivers to help me more than anyone in the ministry.

Then history will talk about how taxi drivers learned about JESUS loving them and then told other taxi drivers about JESUS through me and my kindness that I showed to taxi drivers.

How have taxi drivers helped JESUS IN MONGKOK? They helped me carry a piano to Mongkok and art paintings and church supplies and amplifiers and microphones and people's luggage and all kinds of things!

TAXI DRIVERS and taxis may be expensive but they were my ministry partners when no one would help me.  God LOVES Taxi drivers because they have no time to go to church...so GOD wants us to spend a little extra money and take a ride in a taxi once in a while so we can pray and minister to taxi drivers.

Most of the time I call my taxi driver friends and they help me get a ride.  Sometimes the ride is to work. Sometimes the ride is to do some ministry.  Sometimes the ride is to go to dinner!  It doesn't matter why I ride a taxi.  However, while I ride in a taxi I can do several things to help the spiritual development of the taxi driver and the taxi, itself!

Here are three things you can do to be kind and minister to a taxi driver and his/her taxi:

1) Pray for the taxi driver silently.  Ask Holy Spirit to fill the taxi with God's Presence.  Ask JESUS to become real to the taxi driver.

2) Be kind to the tax driver.  If something comes up...tell HIM about JESUS and be willing to pray with the taxi driver.  Don't harrass the taxi driver and call them an evil sinner.

3) Make sure and give the taxi driver a nice tip (more money than asked for).  The taxi driver usually will be surprised and thank you.  After you give them a nice tip then give them a Blessing From God!

OKOKOKOKOKOKOKOKOKOKOKOK   OK!!!

Some people will say that taxi drivers need to go to church like everyone else.  They need to stop drinking beer together in the evening and they need to get to the LORD JESUS!

If JESUS was here (AND HE IS!), JESUS would hang out with the taxi drivers and have them taxi people who were sick to HIM so HE could heal them.

Recently, I was given an opportunity to buy taxi drivers breakfast.  They would come and eat at 830am in Tung Chung at a local restaurant and I would buy them breakfast and then tell them about JESUS.  I needed a Chinese translator and everyone told me that they were too busy and the taxi drivers needed to go to church and stop being lazy. WHILE JESUS WEEPS AT OUR SELFISHNESS AND STUPIDITY!

If you don't have money for a taxi.  Ride one taxi a week and share the cost with a friend and then pray for the man in that taxi.

You will find that if you invest your money in one taxi a week that JESUS will give you more money through your job so that you can ride in taxis more often!

PLEASE RIDE A TAXI THIS WEEKEND!

GOD BLESS YOU!

JESUS IN MONGKOK's EASY CHRISTIANITY! Read more!

JESUS IN MONGKOK's EASY CHRISTIANITY!  Read more!

I have to apologize to people who want a more complex and harder form of Christianity. I am a model of how JESUS can use people that are simple and mundane.  When I meet the pastor of a large church that is a Doctor of Divinity and has worked for 30 years to get to the position that God has given him, I am very irrelevant to what he is doing.  In comparison to him, I am just an idiot.  I am just a teacher in a secondary school.  I am just a rebel.

However, I have been a Christian for 36 years and I have spent 36 years trying to find out who JESUS is, does he love me, how do we deal with sin, is there forgiveness from God, how do I pray for others, how do I serve others, etc?


 The Christianity that I give at JESUS IN MONGKOK should be easy.  It should be easy to understand and salvation should be for all.  Whether a person is of low education, or is a child, or has mental challenges,. they should still be able to know that JESUS LOVES THEM!

Others believe in memorizing scriptures and doctrine, in getting imaginary demons out of people, of making people confess their sins in front of the church, of having an upper-class in church that is perfect and then a lower-class in church that is threatened and harangued so that they can never think for themselves or follow JESUS for themselves.  Some ministries even make their people physically ill to show them they have demons in them when the pastor's wife that invited them to dinner was just a bad cook.

JESUS IN MONGKOK you will find is not really an EASY CHRISTIANITY.  However, everyone should know EASY BASICS OF CHRISTIANITY--that they are loved by JESUS and forgiven of all of their sins when they work with me at JESUS IN MONGKOK!
 Here are some Bible Verses that I want my friends to know so they can immediately accept JESUS into their life to become the LORD JESUS of their life:
John 3:16
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

Romans 3:23
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Romans 6:23
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in[a] Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 10:9-10
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

2 Corinthians 5:17
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.[a] The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

Romans 12:1-2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Mark 16:15-20
15 He said to them, “Go everywhere in the world. Tell the Good News to everyone. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved. But those who do not believe will be judged guilty. 17 And the people who believe will be able to do these things as proof: They will use my name to force demons out of people. They will speak in languages they never learned. 18 If they pick up snakes or drink any poison, they will not be hurt. They will lay their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” 19 After the Lord Jesus said these things to his followers, he was carried up into heaven. There, Jesus sat at the right side of God. 20 The followers went everywhere in the world telling people the Good News, and the Lord helped them. By giving them power to do miracles the Lord proved that their message was true.

 These are the basics of JESUS IN MONGKOK:

1) Know about JESUS and know we are sinners.

2) Believe in JESUS.

3) Tell everyone we believe and then be baptized.

4) Realize that we are new in JESUS and all things old are gone. 

5) Receive knowledge of Holy Spirit Baptizing US at Salvation and walk in Holy Spirit living life.

6) Give our life as an offering of worship to the Lord JESUS.

7) Ask JESUS, according to Father's plan and work of Holy Spirit, to teach us all things and renew our mind.

8) Go into all the world and make disciples of JESUS by doing the works of Holy Spirit!

 JESUS IN MONGKOK believes that this is for everyone.  If a little schoolgirl of 15 accepts JESUS then she is able to make disciples for JESUS and pray for the sick and see them healed!
 JESUS IN MONGKOK is not a completely EASY form of Christianity because sin is not allowed.  If we sin we need to confess our sins and turn from them.  If JESUS asks us to do something we need to do it because we will all face God someday and HE will ask why we didn't do what HE asked us to do!
 The best thing about JESUS IN MONGKOK is that we can do things fun!  We can be happy! We can sing, dance! We can pray for people that are sick and see them get well! We can pray for people that are depressed and see the oppression/depression go away and the joy come!!!
 JESUS IN MONGKOK people fast and pray, but they don't have to put on a somber face and show that they are pleasing God by fasting.  They fast by buying a little less food or spending a little less money on clothing.  The fast by caring for the orphans and widows and by praying quietly and being honest and compassionate to the broken and hurting in this world.
 JESUS IN MONGKOK can use popular culture to share messages of the Gospel and they can be real to their friends and tell jokes that are uplifting and not bad.  Laughter is just as important way for God to minister to us as falling asleep during a peaceful time of prayer so we can truly be ministered to by Holy Spirit!
JESUS IN MONGKOK LOVES ME and has taken authority over Mongkok and all of Hong Kong!

JESUS LOVES YOU!

BE ENCOURAGED AND HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!

Wisdom Can Produce Riches and Building Great Infrastructure! Will it make you happy?




Wisdom Can Produce Riches and the Building of Great Infrastructures! Will it make you happy?

King Solomon is attributed to writing the Book of Ecclesiastes.  In the book he explored what it was like to have the Gift of Wisdom from God.
In this blog I will look at two passages from the Book of Ecclesiastes to answer the question:

Wisdom Can Produce Riches and Building Great Infrastructure! Will it make you happy?

Ecclesiastes 2:4-11:

Solomon built great things like buildings in Hong Kong.  He built houses and grew every crop to be abundant in every food.  He bought slaves and had a harem.  He was wise in how to manage his great wealth but he wasn't happy.

 I undertook great projects: I built houses for myself and planted vineyards. I made gardens and parks and planted all kinds of fruit trees in them. I made reservoirs to water groves of flourishing trees. I bought male and female slaves and had other slaves who were born in my house. I also owned more herds and flocks than anyone in Jerusalem before me. I amassed silver and gold for myself, and the treasure of kings and provinces. I acquired male and female singers, and a harem as well—the delights of a man’s heart. I became greater by far than anyone in Jerusalem before me.In all this my wisdom stayed with me.

Solomon did everything that felt wise and he found that he wasn't satisfied.  He could have all of the gold and silver and finances in the world. He could build the seven wonders of the world and he would never be happy!

Verses 10-11:
10 I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;
    I refused my heart no pleasure.
My heart took delight in all my labor,
    and this was the reward for all my toil.
11 Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done
    and what I had toiled to achieve,
everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
    nothing was gained under the sun.


Ecclesiastes 12 

Remember your Creator
    in the days of your youth,
before the days of trouble come
    and the years approach when you will say,
    “I find no pleasure in them”—
 Solomon determined that the only way to be happy was to remember our Creator in our youth before foolish actions weary us in this life, before we think there cannot be a great God because of the horrible things we have seen and experienced.

Solomon learned a horrible lesson:  He could have everything and be wise in managing things, but he forgot to love and honour our God above everything we hope and dream for!

On the other hand, the beginning of wisdom is to fear the Lord.  If you talk to JESUS and ask him for wisdom to be able to do the things you would like to do then wisdom will come.  

For example, if you want to start a business here in Hong Kong.  First, pray that Jesus will give you the wisdom to do all of the paperwork to submit to the government.  Then, God will give you the wisdom to make your product, sell your product, and do the accounting so that you can pay taxes and pay your employers.

If you start by asking JESUS for wisdom then you will learn and grow to be effective in your work and business undertakings!

Pray for JESUS to help you start your business and non-profit foundations!

God Bless Your Weekend!

John 14:18-21--JESUS SAYS: 'YOU ARE NOT ORPHANS--YOU ARE MY INSIDE CIRCLE OF LOVE AND TRUST!'

John 14:18-21--JESUS SAYS: 'YOU ARE NOT ORPHANS--YOU ARE MY INSIDE CIRCLE OF LOVE AND TRUST!'

John 14:18-21

New International Version (NIV)
18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. 21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
 In this Bible passage we see that JESUS is preparing HIS People for him being crucified.  He tells them that they are not being left by JESUS and Father.  He doesn't want them to feel like spiritual orphans.  He wants them to know that there is a plan and Father has commanded JESUS to do what HE is about to do.
 Have you ever felt like you were not part of the team at a church, job, or some type of group? I sure have.  I remember one time my boss said that I wouldn't be allowed to go to a certain company party because it was only for his level of managers and I wasn't invited. It hurt for me to not be invited to the party.  Most of us want to be part of the party.  We don't want to be left out and considered not welcome.
 In churches, it can hurt even more when the leaders of a church can go away to a nice hotel or conference grounds for a planning meeting and you and I can't go because we are just regular people. It hurts because we all want to be accepted as a family in JESUS and we find that in our church life there is a hierarchy and we aren't part of the beautiful people.
 See, this is the best part of relationship with JESUS! He has not made any orphans or second-class citizens of Heaven.  HE has made us part of the inner circle of love and trust with Father, Holy Spirit and all the Elders and Angels of Heaven.  We are part of a team, we are never rejected, we are always able to meet and receive counsel from JESUS. We are shiny, happy people through JESUS.  We are part of a relationship with JESUS that never ends and is always fresh and new every morning!
 So, what do we do with this information?  
1) We ask our leaders at church how we can become leaders and develop.
2) We pray to JESUS for giving us a direction for what HE wants us to do in our life?
3) We look in the mirror every day and thank JESUS that HE has made us part of his loving Circle of Trust and to help us to be able to encourage others that they are lovely parts of God also!
 God Bless You!

Have a wonderful start to your weekend!
