A Christian Finding A Non-Christian Life Partner?? + Not Having Babies Due To Finance??

Recently, I had a conversation with a friend regarding relationship.
She happens to be attracted to a non-Christian guy.
I recommended to her not to get attached to him first unless that guy accepts Christ first.
She quoted 1 Corinthians 7:16 as she really wanted to get attached to him.
However, I then explained this verse to her.

1 Cor 7:12-16
In this instance, the couples had actually been married first before Paul came.
When Paul came and preached to them, let’s say only the wife accepted Christ.
The husband then would either accept or object the wife’s decision.
If the husband did not mind, the wife was to stay married with him; no divorce as there was a chance for the wife to win the husband for God.
If the husband really rejected and wanted divorce, Paul advised the wife to go with the divorce.

I then SMS-ed her, telling that a Christian should never even get attached to a non-Christian (2 Cor 6:14).
Otherwise, he/she will not be fruitful for God: less passionate about God.
In fact, I believe he/she will then eventually disobey God in other areas too.

Well, regardless of whether she likes him or not,
I only pray that that guy will accept Christ one day…


An article in TR Emeritus shows a survey result done by “I Love Children” organization.

Apparently, 50% couple choose not to have kids because of insufficient income.
That’s a big news.

Pastor Kong has been teaching the members to confess God’s Word.
When it comes to finance, he encouraged the members to confess times  and again
“Money will come. Money will come. Money will come.”

Amen for that. I confess it too.
In addition to that, I firmly believe children are blessing from God (Ps 127:3).
In Indonesian, there is this saying “Banyak anak banyak rezeki” which means “more kids more blessing”.
Well, I am still single. So, what do I confess?

Money will come.
Girlfriend will come.
Wife will come.
Many kids will come
(repeat it 3 times daily)

Amen for that!

Pastor Kong’s Sermon 29, September, 2012: The Spirit of Faith

City Harvest Church is now about to enter Arise and Build season.
A season of miracle. As the members build God’s House, God will build their house.
The theme of Arise of Build is the House of Glory.
How to build the House of Glory? By having faith in God.
That’s the theme of the first sermon.

2 Cor 4:13; Ps 116:10
David and Paul had the same spirit of faith as they experienced affliction.
No matter what age we are in, God expects us to have the same spirit of faith too.

2 Cor 4:16
Inward man is strengthened day by day.
Spirit of faith looks beyond the temporary; it looks at the eternal.

Pilots are trained to understand their instruments, especially when fog/turbulent obstructs their sight.
While their senses are subjective, their instrument is objective.
Hence, they can take control of the airplane even when they can’t see the horizon.
Similarly, we may not be able to see far in life.
Yet, the instrument, God’s Word, can instruct us what to do.

We are not just to confess our faith; we are to profess it.
There is a difference between professional golfers and amateurs.
Professional golfers make their living from it.
Similarly, the just are to profess faith; they live by faith.

However, believing itself is not enough.
We need to speak it out.

Mark 11:22-23
We need to have faith in God.
Mountain here refers to any problem too big for us.
For every believing, there should be speaking 3 times more.

Speech center exercises control over the whole body.
If you want to change something, speak it first.
God created the universe through His word.

Coyote is attracted to the sound of wounded rabbit.
Similarly, when we speak negative things, devils will come.
Conversely, when we speak positive things, angels will come.

Previous North Korean leader was feared and respected throughout the world.
Whenever he spoke, the whole world wanted to know.
Reason? He stored nuclear bomb. He had some ‘power’ in him.
Similarly, we carry authority as believers as the Holy Spirit is in us.
Our word is important as it carries power.

Abram was so discouraged times and again as he could not have a son.
Yet, he decided not to give up.
By changing his name to Abraham, he kept hearing the voice of faith.

A very inspiring sermon.
