Romans 7:15

(NIV) I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 

Please forgive my sin, Abba, Father. I am grateful for the love and mercy you have for me. I will do better. I love you Heavenly Father, and thank you for loving me. 

Signs of the End Time?

I found an interesting website! I have always wondered what the Book of Revelation talked about the End Time. The description is so buzzy that I could not picture that from the words in the Bible. It’s amusing when reading some summaries, some facts related evidence, and some imagination. It brings the words alive! 

Signs of the End Time 

Regardless of what, I turned around, saw my colleagues were staring at their monitors, typing, taking notes. They were breathing, thinking, living. The signs of the End Time suddenly blowed away in my mind like a feather… 

I don’t know when is the End Time. But I will be ready all the time. 

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Thank you very much for your interest in serving our God through dance worship. From our practices these few weeks, it seems to me that your commitment is a little bit challenging. With the tight time frame, frequent and extended practice hours are inevitable. Please take this time off for now, perhaps we can serve again in the future.

Message from my home church

I call Vineyard Urbana “my home church”, because I grow the most in this community. I found my image in God during my service here. I turned myself and started to trust God’s plan, witnessing by my brothers and sisters in this church. I love this message about the current hot debt of the president elections.

I think the primary step is to care, to think, then take action. As a citizen, everyone’s vote counts. God bless America!

Election Day Is Here

Voting day, November 8th, is here. We’ve dreamed about it, talked about it, argued about it—but whether we’re excited or not, the day of reckoning is at hand. In all my years, I’ve never seen an election quite like this one. People are confused over issues, polarized, and almost unwilling to go to the polls. Need help? Here’s my vote!

Ask The Spirit For Help

The Holy Spirit is called “The Helper” repeatedly throughout the New Testament. We learned in our recent message series: Hello, Holy Spirit, that He actually lives in us to help us prosper in all issues of life—from the small things to those with massive consequences. Even better, the Holy Spirit can see into the future. He knows what is best for the nation, for the Kingdom and for you. Here are a few action items to consider surrounding Election Day.


1 Timothy 2:1-3 says that we are to pray for those in authority. Remember, this was written in a time when the evil Roman emperor,  Nero was in power. Paul made no distinction about who was in authority—but rather we were/are to pray for those who are leading. I encourage all of us to not think of prayer as simply an option but as a priority for our country’s leaders.


While I realize there are no scriptures that ordain the various type of governments within nations, we have one of the best ever devised. One of our privileges (blessings) is that we get to cast a vote—share our opinion on who should be our leaders. This is a precious gift and responsibility. I believe we will be held accountable for exercising our civic duty to be an active participant in the life of our country and community.

After November 8th

Surprising as it may seem, the sun will come up on November 9th. Approximately half of America will think we’re headed into deep and dark days. While things are not exactly heading the way the Bible says they should, there’s still much to be thankful for and this is still a great country. Once more, the directive to pray did not end on election day or whether or not your favorite won the election.

Five Predictions That Will Emerge From The Election

I recently read an excellent blog by Carey Nieuwhol. He is a Canadian pastor and blogger that writes much directed at, and for the American Christians and churches. He listed the following five predictions about the US presidential election.

  1. There will be renewed interest in the sovereignty of God.

  2. The church will look to Christ more and to the government less.

  3. Living out our values will become more important than ever.

  4. The tone of public discourse will get worse… or better.

  5. The work of the local church will be more important than ever.

If you would like to read the entire article, here is a link, it is clearly one of the best blogs I have seen about politics and culture for a long time. I highly recommend it.

Keep A Kingdom Perspective 

This past July, I wrote a note entitled Politics and Prayer. Let me re-state a portion of that note. “Remember from a Christian point of view, more of Heaven is present on earth than ever. People are getting saved at a rate of 3,000 every 30 minutes rather than 3,000 on a single day like Acts 2. We are seeing increased revelation and understanding about the King and the Kingdom as we’re empowered more and more by the Holy Spirit. Romans 5:20 says that as darkness increases, Grace will much more increase. Thus, I believe our best days are ahead.”

Final Thoughts

These are indeed turbulent times. That’s why the Spirit was given to us by Jesus Christ. What’s more, it says in the Gospel of John that the Spirit will never leave us. In addition, we are given the comfort of the local body of Christ. From this group we draw strength and life.

Thanks for being a part of the Vineyard family. May we band together to see the goodness of God.

Restart, and be brave!

What is it like to say good bye to someone you love? Not knowing when you will meet again. But knowing that a good bye is a good bye, you turned around from the person, when you turn back. No one will be there. Until next time. And you don’t know when is the next time.

So you have the best excuse to cry, cry out loud from your heart, cry like the tears can ease your pain. But memories remain, disturb you, day and night.

Psalms 66-75

Still repeating the song, ‘I sing praises to your name’!

Psalms 66 to 71 were written by David.

  • 66:4 全地的居民都必敬拜你,向你歌颂,歌颂你的名。All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing the praises of your name.
  • 66:20 神是应当称颂的,他没有拒绝我的祷告,也没有使他的慈爱离开我。Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
  • 69:5 神啊!我的愚昧你是知道的,我的罪愆不能向你隐瞒。You, God, know my folly; my guilt is not hidden from you.
  • 69:13 但是,耶和华啊! 在悦纳的时候,我向你祷告; 神啊!求你按着你丰盛的慈爱, 凭着你信实的拯救应允我。But I pray to you, Lord, in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation.
  • 71:23 我歌颂你的时候,我的嘴唇要欢呼; 我的灵魂,就是你所救赎的,也要欢呼。My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you— I whom you have delivered.

Psalms 72 were written by Solomon. Why, the last verse says David? 为啥啊,明明最后一句话是说:耶西的儿子大卫的祷告完毕。

Psalms 73 to 75 were written by Asaph.

  • 75: 6-7 高升不是从东面来,不是从西面来, 也不是旷野来, 7 而是由 神来决定; 他使这人降卑,使那人升高。No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt themselves.  It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.


2 Thessalonians

为啥保罗他们要写帖撒罗尼迦 (还是觉得很绕口,哈哈)后书,哥林多书分前后是很合理的,就像哥林多后书上说的,保罗觉得上一封信写的太严肃了,想要再写一封来激励哥林多教会的使徒们的信心。但这个帖撒罗尼迦后书我就没搞懂。当然,我找了几个版本的答案,偏偏不告诉你。

3:5 May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance. 5 愿主引导你们的心,使你们有 神的爱和基督的坚忍。

3:15 Yet do not regard them as an enemy, but warn them as you would a fellow believer.15 但不要把他看作仇敌,却要劝他好象劝弟兄一样。


1 Thessalonians

帖撒罗尼迦前书 1 (中文念起来很绕口呢哈哈)

1:9 for they themselves report what kind of reception you gave us. They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, 1:9 他们都述说你们是怎样接待我们,而且怎样离弃偶像归向 神,要服事这位又真又活的 神,

神是不会喜悦你敬拜别的偶像的,这一点在圣经里讲述的很清楚。要 单单 爱你的神。的确,

2:4 On the contrary, we speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please people but God, who tests our hearts. 2:4 相反地, 神既然考验过我们,把福音委托给我们,我们就传讲,不像是讨人欢心的,而是讨那察验我们心思的 神的喜悦。

曾经有教会的姐妹提点我,和身边不属神的朋友接触,应该少提到圣经,少提到耶稣。我当时第一个反应是冒号脸,凭啥啊?我表达了我的不解之后,她提点我,万一我这样来去讲述圣经,讲述耶稣,让别人反感了呢?我双手一摆,表示,我不缺朋友。我不是故意在这里得利嘚瑟的瞎咋呼,我只是凭心而论我做不到。我不会有意的把所有话题都带到耶稣或者救恩上,但当我提到的时候,只是在我的大脑思维过程中,这个是一个必要的思维模块。我不想因为别人不想听,就故意避开。当然,也不能因为我自己执意要讲,就句句不离。 Continue reading
