To be The Servant of God . . .

Know the truth & the truth shall set thee free.

The American faith in God has been eroded & destroyed, until their tens of thousands of churches with different “branches and denominations” are for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of politics & the devil. Their flocks may complain, but when explained on the “winning” outcome, religion is no longer “politically correct”. Religion is now out of schools, public places and out of Congress.

Yet ironically, on the back of the American dollar notes, it clearly says:

In God We Trust.

Fake . . . Fraudulent . . . Fallen

(Involved in Scandals)

Take not the name of our Lord in vain . . .

In God we trust but what of men?

The past & present day religious landscape could be described as such above with the like appearance of snake oil salesmen, carpetbaggers all making the scene for the great killing. This is not only happening in America, but we are not spared either.

Yoido Full Gospel Church,Seoul

Televangelists like Jim & Tammy Bakker (conviction of bilking followers out of millions of dollars in1986 & 1991), Jimmy Swaggart (sex scandal) & now Benny Hinn (2012) – have fallen all intoxicated by money & power. They may have started out doing honourable work of saving souls, however, “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.”

Spaceship-like Calvary Convention Hall, Damansara Hts. Kuala Lumpur

Others like Pastor Kong Hee of City Harvest, Singapore (misappropriation of S$24 Million plus a further S$26.6 million), Tan Sri Dr Sr Pastor Prince Guneratnam of Calvary Church in Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur, Dr David Yonggi Cho, (formerly Paul Yonggi Cho), Yoido Full Gospel Church, Seoul, South Korea (2011), who pastored the biggest church in the world . . . all victims of GREED & lure of high living. The global list of offenders is longer than your arms.

Dr David Yonggi Cho (Formerly Paul Yonggi Cho)

The ones named above are familiar by their frequent appearances on Australian Sunday TV Channels.

In God we Trust

Do we give the same due respect for human?

Mass perception, captive audiences . . . being gullible . . . Christian followers are like sheep to be led to be slaughtered.

Faith healer . . . or fake healer

Benny Hinn – Televangelist & Faith Healer

Here’s A CBC documentary on Benny Hinn 
released in YouTube on May 31, 2012 by ‪cpmcd2000: http://youtu.be/ZlNTALOChRc.

Who can be like John Wesley, a great evangelist of the 18th Century, Christ personified – a humble person well worthy to qualify to be in the service of God :

Born in 1703 was one of the great evangelists of the 18th Century.

In 1731 he began to limit his expenses so that he would have more money to give to the poor. In the first year his income was 30 pounds and he found he could live on 28 and so gave away two.  In the second year his income doubled but he held his expenses even, and so he had 32 pounds to give away (a comfortable year’s income). In the third year his income jumped to 90 pounds and he gave away 62 pounds.

In his long life, Wesley’s annual income advanced to as high as 1,400 pounds . But he rarely let his expenses rise above 30 pounds. He said that he seldom had more than 100 pounds in his possession at any one time. This so baffled the English Tax Commissioners that they investigated him in 1776, insisting that for a man of his income he must have silver dishes that he was not paying excise tax on. He wrote them, “I have two silver spoons at London and two at Bristol. This is all the plate I have at present, and I shall not buy any more while so many round me want bread.”

When he died in 1791 at the age of 87 the only money mentioned in his will was the coins to be found in his pockets and dresser. Most of the 30,000 pounds he had earned in his life had been given away. He wrote, “I cannot help leaving my books behind me whenever God calls me hence; but in every other respect, my own hands will be my executors. In other words, I will put a control on my spending myself, and I will go beyond the tithe for the sake of Christ and his kingdom.”

Such was John Wesley – a man of “poverty”, humility, downright honest & sincere to be a shining example for the likes of Benny Hinn, Tan Sri Dr Sr Pastor Prince Guneratnam, Dr David Yonggi Cho and last but not least our Singapore neighbour Pastor Kong Hee.

In God’s service, be established & accomplished

To thy own self be diminished

 Joe & Mabel in happier times & at the hospital

Joseph (Joe), tall & 59 years young, works at the Post Office Distribution Centre, Perth International Airport, today lies at Shenton Park Rehabitation Centre where he was sent from, Royal Perth Hospital for life support & on-going medical care. He was struck down in knee-deep water while board surfing with his friend Mark at Mullaloo Beach, Perth, Western Australia on 10 December 2011.

Aussies generally love the sand, sun & surf.

It’s unbelievable that water can be both a friend & enemy without any forewarning. This surfing accident which happened in December 2011 is not the result of great tsunami waves but relatively calm water at 4 feet level. Joe in fact was making his way back to shore. But when Joe was still not back, his friend quickly turned around & found him floating face down.

Resuscitation was quickly administered while waiting for the ambulance. Joe was rushed to Royal Perth Hospital. The initial prognosis was not favourable & it came to as much as having to decide whether to pull off the life supporting device. He was in a coma initially. He has no sensation from the neck down.

Trusting in the Lord, and being good Christians, Mabel his wife & the rest of the family members strongly believe that God will heal Joe completely. God will make a way. God will make him whole.

Slowly, there has been some improvements. With insertion of trachea device, Joe could now eat, speak & even sing.

Video of Joe singing “Feelings”

Yes, Joe loves to sing. He has his first singing training as a choir boy when he was at the Seminary in Ipoh, Malaysia. In fact every Teoh family member is a good singer. Joe is a popular karaoke singer at social parties & charitable performances.

Things have been difficult for his wife Mabel. Virtually all hours she has been at his bedside. It’s hard for her coping with the situation. Let’s all of us think kindly & pray for a miracle for Joe, together with any possible assistance, which will be greatly appreciated.

Don Moen sings: “God Will Make A Way

We claim complete & wholesome healing in the wonderful & powerful Name of Jesus. AMEN.

LATEST UPDATE  (Month of September 2012)

Praise God! Joe has improved tremendously with the ability to raise his right hand, sit for longer stretch in his wheel chair, use his laptop computer, talk quite like normal & even sing!

He’s now at the Quadriplegic Centre, 10 Selby Street, Shenton Park WA 6008 – Ashburton Room 4

We claim complete healing in the name of Jesus! AMEN.
