Pastor Sun’s Sermon 9, September, 2017 Encounters

There are changes in the praise and worship.
3 praise and 2 worship.
It must not be a structure.
Instead, CHC will be a people of unusual worship.

In our worship, we will experience healing, deliverance and breakthrough.
We will be so close with God that our forehead touches His forehead.

When we make room for the Holy Spirit, He will move and touch the hearts of the people.

When God entrusts us with a revelation, He will start small to see if we treasure it, if we are hungry enough for it.

When the Holy Spirit comes, it is not about dancing or crawling or crying or laughing.
It is about obeying Him. When we obey Him, our lives will never be the same.

Even as we worship God, He will open door which no man can shut. He will close door which no one can open.

Zaccheus
Luke 19.
He was tax collector and disliked by the people.
He defrauded them.
One day Lord Jesus went into his house and  changed his life.

Jacob
Genesis 32:28
God called him Israel (the prince with God), not Jacob (the supplanter).

Likewise, when we enter into the presence of God, no matter what happened in our past, He will give us the new identity.

Jacob got the first hand encounter with God.
He had face to face meet up with God.

Similarly, why should we stand far away?
God invited us to enter beyond the veil.

Jacob also got a new walk with God.
Genesis 32:25
Jacob had a pattern of running away from problems.
After this, he could no longer run away.

Until we are broken unto God, we cannot do mighty exploits for Him.
The greater work God wants to do is for us to have new identity, encounter and walk with God.

Some encounters are dramatic.
Moses saw the burning the bush.
Peter, James and John saw the transfiguration.
Some encounters are not so dramatic.
Joseph had dreams and the dreams saved a nation.
Lord Jesus quietly went into Zaccheus’ house.

If we look for supernatural only in the spectacular, we will miss the Holy Spirit.

It is not the intensity of the encounter.
It is how we follow it up.
The Israelites had mighty encounters but they did not understand. Neither did they have God’s heart.

Acts 9:3
Saul had the encounter with God.
He fell under the power.
It is not what happens when we fall under the power.
It is what we do when we get up.

How did Saul/Paul follow up the encounter?
He built the altar of consecration in his inner being.
In our heart, is there a place that is exclusively for Lord Jesus?
Paul never forgot about his encounter.
He even testified it before the king Agrippa.

Romans 1:1
Bondservant = doulos = slave.
He fully belongs to the master.
Not just any slave.
He is love slave: he voluntarily serves out of love.
Ex 21:2,5-6
Requirement to be love slave: pain to the ear.
It is about listening and obeying God.
For Paul, he obeyed the voice of God by preaching the Gospel to the Gentiles.

Kathryn Kuhlman.
She moved in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Yet, she made mistake by marrying a married man.
She was stubborn and did not repent in the beginning.
One day she had a dead-end encounter.
She then repented.

What we need is the cross.
Do we want to experience His power?
Let us come to the cross and yield to Him.

Acts 9:6
Saul asked, “Lord what do You want me to do?”
Similarly, we should ask God what He wants us to do and obey Him.

Gal 2:20
Can we say, “I have been crucified with Christ.”?

Let us follow through the encounter with consecration.

Pastor Sun’s Sermon 8, July, 2017 Passion

Passion: strong and barely controllable emotion.
It is passion toward God, His house and His people.

Passion: the suffering and the death of Jesus.
We often do not think about this second definition.

Acts 1:1-3
Jesus’s passion.
What is it about the cross?
Why do we see the cross as pain but Jesus saw it as passion?

The cross is the pain, agony and humiliation.
Jesus was hung naked.
The cross is hideous place.
Jesus’s body was torn until He was no longer recognizable.
Nevertheless, it was the place of His passion.

Why is pain and passion so intertwined?
Sometimes love comes with pain.
For example, a daughter loves her dad but she struggles how to respect him.
A husband loves his wife. He works hard to provide for her. However, the wife wants to leave him. He still wants to win her back though it hurts him.

Love hurts
It hurts to be open and vulnerable.
Love suffers long.

We can get a glimpse of love when we talk about maternal or marriage love.
However, we may have difficulty in comprehending God’s love.

Ephesians 3:18-19
Love of Christ passes all knowledge.
Nevertheless, we can still experience it.

The love of Christ heals every ache in our soul.
Passion is built on His love for you.
We must go beyond the joy of serving and witnessing His power.

How to love God?
One way to do so: to go back to the room, close the door, kneel down and tell God, “I love You.”
The love of God will ignite our passion.

The heart wrenching story of God’s love.
Hosea 1:2
God wanted Hosea to experience His passionate love.
He told Hosea to marry prostitute.
God even told him to love her.
Hosea cared for his wife and yet Hosea couldn’t change her mentality of prostitute.
She left the house and came back times and .
She then degraded lower: from prostitute to a slave.
Hosea immediately bought her because he still loved her.
He still considered her beautiful in his sight.

Lesson here.
For us, it is just transaction. However, to God, it is a love relationship.

God still loves us.
We are the object of His passion.
He will return our dignity even if we mess up.

Pastor Sun’s Sermon 11, June, 2017 My Journey With The Holy Spirit

John the Baptist
Pain shrinks us.

Herod Antipas seduced Herodias.
John the Baptists confronted them
Mark 6:17-20

Initially John declared Jesus to be the Lamb of God.
John was then in the prison.
The pain shrunk him.
He even began to doubt Jesus.
He sent his disciples to ask Him.

Matt 11:4-6
Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of Lord Jesus.
Blessed is he who does not stumble on what Jesus does or does not do.
After all, Jesus considered John to be a great person.

Our personal circumstance does not reflect how God feels about us.

If God really loves me, why doesn’t He help me?
But, God really loves us. The cross is the proof.

Elijah.
Pain causes us to depart from our revelation.

Elijah was so brave and victorious on Mt. Carmel.
However, later on he got into depression.
1 Kings 19:4
He was expecting national revival.
However, he received death threats from Jezebel.
Then, he wanted to run away from all the revelation.

How do we handle pain?

1.Worship
Even when we can’t feel love of God, we should still worship God.

2.Recall the revelation
Quality of revelation in church determines the weight of glory we experience.

1986
To serve God fully.
God means much more than worldly pleasure.

1994
Mission.
To win Asia and plant churches.

1996.
Building a strong local church.
A revival will be lost if there is no strong local church.

1997
Soul winning
Matt 22:37
Loving God wholeheartedly and loving people fervently.
Find a hurt to heal it, find a need to meet it.

2001
Can One Person Make a Difference.

We need to go back to our secret chamber and recall the revelation God has given us.
In the midst of pain, we must not run away.

3.Receive the raven 
God may send someone to inject faith into us.
1 Kings 3:9
We need to hear from God and obey Him. We must possess a God-listening heart.
Glory of the church is rooted in hearing and obeying the voice of the Lord.

Matt 25.
10 virgins. 5 wise 5 foolish.
This is about end time.
What is this lamp? The Holy Spirit that dwells in us. Only Lord Jesus can give us.
Oil and the vessel? Continual infilling of the Holy Spirit. Continual baptism of the Holy Spirit through seeking the face of God.
Isa 55:1
How to buy? Through ‘coming’. We need to have come in constant fellowship with Him.
Before we come, we first need to thirst for the Spirit.
If we are not in touch with the Spirit, how will the Spirit touch us?
Buy = paying the price. It requires costly pursuit of Him.
Rev 3:18

Pastor Sun’s 4, December, 2016 Father, Reveal Who You Are

Some of us relate to God but not as Heavenly Father.
We prefer thinking of Him as the Almighty Creator, holy and majestic.
However, the correct view of God is that He is our Heavenly Father.

John 17:6
Lord Jesus came to reveal our Father.
In the Lord’s prayer, Lord Jesus taught us to pray, "Father, reveal who You are to us."

John 6:38
What is the relationship between Lord Jesus and the Father?
Lord Jesus constantly communed with the Father. 
Before He multiplied the loaves, He gave thanks to Father.
Before He resurrected Lazarus, He gave glory to the Father.
Lord Jesus had intimate and heart relationship with the Father.
We can have intimate relationship with the Father too.Jesus’ ultimate goal is to bring us to the Father.

John 14:6, 9
Thomas did not know the way. Lord Jesus answered: He is the way.
Philip asked Lord Jesus to show the Father.
However, Lord Jesus answered: how can you not know Me?
It is possible to be busy with Christianity that we do not know Lord Jesus.

Information knowledge vs personal revelation

We can know so much about God without having personal revelation with God.
However, we need to cross over to personal, private and intimate revelation to God.

The essence of Christianity is having first hand intimate personal revelation of God as our Heavenly Father.

Phil 3:10
Apostle Paul taught knowing comes before the power.
Christianity is not just giving back to society or making miracles. They are good.
But, we must not stop. Supernatural signs and wonders are by products of our relationship with the Father.

We must know and know of the Father without any shadow of doubt

Luke 15:11-13
The father gave in to the ridiculous demand of the younger son.
What did the father want? 
The father wanted a heart relationship with the son. When the father gave the money, he gave unconditional love.
God the Father wants our heart relationship with Him.

Beloved.
To be esteemed, considered dear, favorite and worthy of love.
Matt 3:17, Matt 4:1
The devil kept testing Him, "if You are the Son of God." However, the Father already declared, "You are My beloved Son"
If we remember that we are beloved children of God, we can win against any temptation.

God the Father wants us to know we are His beloved.
We need to meditate on this revelation and our lives will never be the same again.

Rm 8:37
We won’t be more than the conquerors unless we believe that we are His beloved. 
We need to have childlike and carefree faith when we come before God.

If we avoid heart relationship, we  will lose the life God has prepared for us.
