Great news from Parachute!

Dear friends, for those of you who was at Parachute in the weekend, thankyou for participating in our Good Person Test at Parachute ’08!! May God bless you always!!

Please keep in touch, send us a testimony of what God has done and is doing your lives by leaving us a comment on this site.

Let’s give God All the Glory!!!

If you haven’t handed your life over to Jesus, Please read the page, ‘How to be saved’.

If you have handed your life over to Jesus- you already have ever-lasting life. Now I would like to encouraged you to do this right now:

Ask Lord Jesus to fill you, to cover/immerse you with His Holy Spirit as if you were dipped into the sea.

You see:

Jesus died, buried and Rose again from the dead so that we can get rid off the record of our sin and have eternal life. –Romans 4:25 He was given over because of our transgressions and was raised for the sake of our justification.

But Jesus ascended to the right hand of God so that He can pour out His Spirit upon all believers to empower us to live the live for Him. –Acts 2:32 This Jesus God raised up, and we are all witnesses of it. 2:33 So then, exalted to the right hand of God, and having received the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father, he has poured out what you both see and hear.

It’s one thing to be born again, but it’s another thing to be born-again and live with the Supernatural Power of the Holy Spirit.

Luke 11:13 If you then, although you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

So right now, I encourage you to cry out to God out loud and say something like this:

‘Lord Jesus, please pour out Your Holy Spirit upon me and fill me with Your Power. Fill me to overflowing with Your Spirit. Enable me to speak in a new heavenly language, in tongues.’

And then open your mouth, and trust God to give you the words of tongues to speak. Just let it out and it will flow.

And secondly, I would encouraged to be baptised in water (full immersion) in obedience to Christ.

Baptism is an outward sign of what has already taken place on the inside – a new creation, cleansed by the blood Jesus and raised to newness of life with Christ.

Find a good church that teaches the bible and is open to the move of the Holy Spirit!

God bless you!

WHY evangelise?

The word evangelist in the original language, Greek, is euaggelistes, which means ‘a preacher of the Gospel, a bringer of good tidings’. The imaginery is liken to the middle age days where a herald would come to a village and proclaim a message from the King. He had been given authority to do so and that is his job, simply to be the king’s mouth piece to the people.

Yes, we are like a herald sent from God, but More than that, let me explain.

But, why do we evangelise?

(God really challenged me on this, and I would like to share with you what He spoke to me from my personal experience and not finger-pointing at anyone, please bear with me.)

The answer is simply to empty hell so that people won’t have to go there and fill heaven; TO SAVE PEOPLE.

Do we simply present the Gospel to someone and say, ‘that’s it, one down, next person please…’ and we don’t really care if they accept the gospel or not, but we just do it because it’s our job.

But I disagree with that motivation.

Picture this: you are selling a very great health product that could improve the lives of people. It’s health and benefits are documented and tested in the university labs. So you go around knocking on doors selling this product, but you don’t just present the product and then goto the next customer, but the whole purpose of presenting that product is so in the hope that people will buy it! Otherwise why even present it and say, ‘Okay now that you know what the product is, bye bye I’m going to the next person!’ and rush off. No salesman would ever do that. The purpose is to sell the product, especially in this case it will benefit people’s health.

So why do I, as a Christians do it, sometimes?

Especially when it comes to street evangelism. I talk to some stranger about Jesus, and say in my heads, ‘Okay I’ve done my job now, next person, please, the more people I talk to, I feel better.’ But I am simply doing it out of duty, not out of love; I don’t really care about that person too much, but I care more about my ‘job’.

If your family were unsaved, you would never do that to them! You wouldn’t just present the gospel to them, and say ‘that’s fine, let’s move on to the next person.’ But you would want them to get saved, because you love them! You don’t want them to goto everlasting punishment, but goto everlasting happiness in heaven, and you’ll do anything that you can to make that happen!

Most of us didnt’ get saved right away when the first time we heard the gospel, it was a process.

Paul is not like me at times, he said ‘I become all things to all men so that I might win some…’

1 Corinthians 9:19 For since I am free from all I can make myself a slave to all, in order to gain even more people. 8 9:20 To the Jews I became like a Jew to gain the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law) 9 to gain those under the law. 9:21 To those free from the law I became like one free from the law (though I am not free from God’s law but under the law of Christ) to gain those free from the law. 9:22 To the weak I became weak in order to gain the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that by all means I may save some.9:23 I do all these things because of the gospel, so that I can be a participant in it.

He didn’t just care about the message, he cared about the person with whom he was sharing the message with. His focus was the Person he’s talking to, not the Presentation he’s making. The presentation came out naturally as he was focusing his compassion on the person he was talking to.

Paul’s motivation for evangelism is not evangelism itself, but it’s in the hope that some might get saved. May his motivation become my motivation; let us not see people we witness to as just a number, but as precious human beings created in God’s image, worth more than all of creation itself, worth so much to God that He would give His Only Son for them.

Some might say, ‘we can’t save anyone, only God can!’ Of course, only God can save, but if we do our part to save people, then God will be able to do His part and save them too somewhere done the road.

So in summary, the motivation for any kind of evangelism (whether street or friendship) is NOT evangelism itself BUT for the Saving of souls; of people from going to a lost eternity.

Thank you for reading this.

“For the Message about the Cross… is the Power of God” 1Cor1:18

We broke the Law, but Jesus paid our fine!!

John 3:16 For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 3:17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world should be saved through him.

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us, in that while we were still sinners(criminals), Christ died for us.
