Time To Come Home
是时候回家了

on August 2020

“Time to come home”  by Pastor Daniel

Introduction
We hear this phrase all the time, “It is time to come home.”  It is especially meaningful in every phase of life.  We say that to our children = when they are out and playing and then there is that moment, “It is time to come home.”  We hear that probably from our spouse when we are working too hard and spending long hours in the office and a phone call came, “Honey, it is time to come home.” 

In our latest announcement in church, we said, “Welcome Home!”

Hebrews 10:24-25
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another” 

Not staying on our own
There was a story told of a pastor who visited one of his members who had not come to church for a while.  As they shared and talked together in the evening by a fireplace, the host finally told the pastor, “Well, pastor I am sure you noticed that I have not been to church a while and that is why you are here.  I have come to the conclusion that faith is a personal thing and therefore I rather keep to myself these days.  I hope you understand.”  To that the pastor took the tongs and drew a piece of burning coal from the fireplace.  Then he asked the host, “how long do you think this piece of coal will last?”  The host then said, “It will not last very long if you keep it away from that heap of burning coals.”  The pastor responded, “That is true of our faith too.  Keeping away will not last, and we need the others to help us keeping burning and glowing.”

That is precise the message of the writer to the Hebrews.  We can get so comfortable being away from people after a while but then it is “time to come home.”
Be encouraged and be an encouragement

Those verses go on to say that we come together for a reason.  We come so as to provoke one another to love and to good works. 

What greater encouragement besides reading the Word and knowing the promises of God is the experience of others in the light of scriptures.  To see the reality of spiritual truths acted out in today’s lives is the greatest encouragement.  That is what our gathering is all about.  In the early church, the disciples of Jesus Christ gathered in homes every day.  We tended to see that it was possible then as though people were simply too free.  Well, as we think of the vocation of the people, they were mostly farmers and farmers spent long hours at work.   Perhaps there were less entertainment and distraction.  That may be true but what is more important was that they were gathering for one reason – to provoke each other to love and to good works, to encourage one another in their faith because the times were hard.

We thank God for technology today and we can meet via zoom, but now that times are better, let us say, “It is time to come home.”  We are now able to meet physically by stages and we pray and hope that all this will soon be lifted up.  It is said that love begets love.  It is by means of loving another that we become stimulated to love in return. It is through the love of Christ towards our brothers and sisters, irrespective of their attitude towards us that love can be motivated within us.  Isn’t that the commandment of Christ, “Love one another and by this shall all men know you are my disciples.”?

The Day is drawing Near
“All the more, as you see the Day drawing near”.  That is a tone of urgency.  With all that is happening, and foreseeing even greater challenging time, we may not have the luxury to meet together one day.  While we still have, let us not neglect doing so.

May God bless you and let us say to one another, “It is time to come home!”

Three Rusty Coins
三枚生锈的硬币

on July 2020

by Pastor Tang Long Kin
 

Titus 3: 4-7
4 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life

One day I found three rusty coins under a tree by the roadside. When I pick them up I found they were all dirty and rusted. There were two 5 sen coins and a 10 sen coin, making up a total value of 20 sens. I took a look at their condition and almost threw them away. But somehow I kept them and took them home and left them on the side table. A few days later they were still lying there untouched. I look at them and then ask myself why are they still around? There was nothing of beauty to behold. They were all rusted and dirty. They cannot be used as display ornaments and I refused to put them together with other coins because they are so rusted and dirty.
 
As I ponder over the fact that I still kept them despite their condition, I realized that it is not the metal itself that I see value in them. I see value in them because there is a higher authority guaranteeing their value. That authority is the Government of Malaysia. No matter how dirty or rusted they are, they are still worth 20 sens.  Their value is not what they are made of; their value is the authority behind them. I can easily take those dirty, rusty coins to Bank Negara Malaysia and exchange them for clean shiny coins. On closer look you can see “Bank Negara Malaysia” stamped on the coins. This is the seal of guarantee and value.
 
What is our life worth?
 
That thought started me to think of our worth. What is our worth? Do our lives matter? Who gives value to our life? During this Coronavirus pandemic we see chaos everywhere. More than 10mil lives have been permanently affected and more than 500 thousand deaths due to this virus alone. Life is really so fragile. One moment we are alive and active and the next moment we may be in the intensive care unit when the virus catches up. Life seems worthless.
 
I did a search on our worth in the bible and I found not less than 100 passages talking about our worth to God. In all of them nothing is said about God loving us because of our own value. They are all about God making us valuable because of His grace and loving kindness towards us. We are valuable and our lives matter because of God made us valuable. He purchased us with the blood of His beloved Son Jesus.
 
1 Peter 1:18
Knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold,
 
Isaiah 41:13
For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”
 
Ephesians 1:13–14
13 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.
 
No matter how battered our lives may be; no matter how dirty our lives have been; no matter how rusted our lives are, we are still valuable because God said so. He puts value in us and made us valuable. Now that we are His children our old worn out, dirty and rusty lives have been exchanged for new lives in Christ. That is all that matters. In addition, God has put His Spirit in us as a guarantee of our value and redemption.

Knowing The Signs Of Times
明白时代的征兆

on June 2020

by Pastor Daniel

Introduction
At such a time like this, when we have so many questions, we wonder what God is doing.  It is good to have question in order to discern the will of God.
 
In I Chronicles 12:32, there was a tribe who was loyal to King David and what was described of this tribe is wonderful;
“Of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen under their command.”
 
Being able to discern the will of God, enables one to also respond and be obedient.  Do we know the signs of the times today? 
 
Jesus’ Prediction
In Matthew 24:4-30, Jesus spoke of the signs of the last days.  We are indeed in the last days.  What are those signs? There is a list of them, namely;

  • Deception =  “many will come and claim to be the Messiah”
  • Wars =  :you will hear of wars and threats of wars"
  • Famines =  “there will be famines”
  • Earthquakes =   “earthquakes in many parts of the world”
  • Persecution  =  “you will be arrested, persecuted and killed.”
  • Apostasy  =   “Many will turn away from me”
  • Sin =  “sin will be rampant”
  • Apathy =   “the love of many will grow cold”
  • Evangelism  =  “the good news of the Kingdom will be preached everywhere”
 
These are some of the signs that we are told.  Putting them in line to what is happening today, we know how close the end times are.    Everything mentioned above is taking place in parts.  The fulfillment is sure to come.
 
We are not left in the dark, but are prophesies meant to cause fear?  Even in the midst of those troubled times are these words of our Lord;
“Don’t be deceived” = be alert!
“Don’t panic” = have faith!
“People will hear the good news” = have hope!
 
Our part: PRAY, PREPARE, PLAN
As in the tribe of Issachar, they not only know and understand the signs but  they also know what Israel would have to do.  That is where understanding should lead us.
 
So what do we discern as we listen to our Lord predicting the future and the end times?
 
As we look at the pandemic, we know we should also embrace the posture of being ALERT, to have FAITH and to serve with HOPE, because God is with us.
 
Let us all look at the signs and discern the ways of God. (From a zoom session with Haggai International)
 
1.      Shaken Economy
We all know that after this pandemic, things will never be the same again.  I read that in Malaysia we are already experiencing about 1 million people losing their job.  The whole world is experiencing great level of unemployment.  The times are going to be tough.  Industries are shutting down, airports are empty, hotels are closing.  What does this tell us?  We have to look up to God because God has promised to be our Provider, the Jehovah Jireh.  Have faith!
 
2.      Social Changes
Everyone is talking about staying at home as much as possible.  Continue to practice social distancing.  There will be a quantum change in our social interaction post covid.  It cannot be like the past where great social gathering is a sight to behold.  People will be distancing themselves further.  We will grow to become more “lovers of self”.  That is how society will be shaping our behavior.  How then are we going to interact?  We are moving from the physical to the virtual.  We are even getting use to interacting via the social media.  Can we still be in touch with people - expressing concern and love and encouragement?  Are we feeling that need to reach out or are we closing ourselves even more?  Be Alert!
 
3.      Spiritual Awakening
As we go through all these changes, the one thing that would touch everyone despite all the technologies and advancement is the void within the human heart.  There will be an awakening in the hearts of man.  Jesus said that the good news of the Kingdom will be preached and all nations will hear it.  That is already happening because we hear of how people are looking for hope.  They will turn everywhere and anywhere they think there is hope.  Are we there for them?  It is not all that bleak after all.  God is working out his purpose - that all mankind will turn to him.  Have Hope!
 
4.      Super Technology
The last thing I would like to share is the move from high tech to super tech.  What we think is advance today will soon be found in the musuem.  I was watching a video clip exposing some teenagers to the old computers with CRT monitors, running windows 95 and going into the internet via the modem.  They were lost and could not believe how ancient it was.  Their label - this is a very old dinosaur.  That is how fast the world is moving.  Are we catching up with them too.  We must begin to see how we can use this to our advantage.  When the Lord said that the good news will be preached throughout the whole world, - it is becoming a reality.  People are wanting to hear and we have the means to declare it.  Online services have more audience than ever before.  What else could we do?  PRAY, PREPARE AND PLAN.
 
CONCLUSION
As we understand the signs of the last days, let us be alert, have faith and ignite hope.  As I have mentioned, prophecies are not meant to cause us fear, but to know that God is only fulfilling his grand purpose for this world.  As such, my dear brothers, it is not for us to be depressed but a time for all of us to PRAY, PREPARE AND PLAN.  Let us be people who are ready when the Lord returns for us.  Hallelujah, Maranatha! (Come, our Lord!)  God bless.

In view of the current pandemic, the church leadership thought it fit that as a church we should act responsibly and with wisdom. We saw it fit that we should do all we can within our means to help contain the current spread of the Covid-19 infection and to protect our FCC family from harm. As such, the leadership has decided on the following:

1) Easter lunch is cancelled
2) Church camp is postponed indefinitely. We will monitor the situation before deciding on the next course of action.  

Meanwhile, stay safe by staying indoors and stay close to our Lord. It is a good time for family rejuvenation and bonding. Spend your time reading the Bible, praying and seeking our Lord. If you have any urgent needs or any emergency please do not hesitate to contact the leaders for help. We will do all we can within our means to help. Thank you. God bless.
 
教会领袖认为鉴于当前的全球疫情,作为教会我们以负责任的态度和智慧行事都是合宜的。我们应该竭尽所能,以帮助遏制当前的新冠肺炎的蔓延并保护信心教会的成员免受伤害。因此,领导层已做出以下的决定:

  1. 取消复活节的午宴。
  2. 无限期延后教会的家庭营。 我们将根据情况来决定下一步行动。
在这期间请确保自身的安全,呆在户内时时与上帝亲近。这是更新和连结一家人的好时机。花时间读圣经,祷告和寻求主。若您有任何紧急需求或突发状况,请随时向领袖们联系以寻求帮助。我们将尽力提供援助。谢谢。愿上帝赐福大家。
