Gen 12.3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you
As we celebrate Christmas this Dec 2016, it is pertinent to remember and reflect on the violence in Mosul, Aleppo, the Rohinyas, and the refugees camping in Europe. The final resolution in the UN capped off a troubled year condemning Israel for occupying their own land, making it illegal. It was the revenge of the former occupying powers, the Romans, and the Arabs.
The UN security council who had failed to condemn nor stop the mass killings of 500,000 innocent in Aleppo has found a common scapegoat in Israel to soothe their conscience. Essentially the UN has declared all the Israel settlements in West Jerusalem and West Bank (Judah) illegal with over 1 million Jews impacted. The nations who had voted against Israel has unwittingly put themselves under a curse.
In this Christmas season, we are reminded that Jesus was born a Jew in Bethlehem, Judah, where the world today calls West Bank (west of Jordan River) after trying to scrub Israel away for more than 2,000 years. The devil hates Israel because she bore the seed of his downfall, in Jesus Christ, and Jerusalem is where Jesus will return again to end Satan’s rule.
The UN resolution will set in motion, a series of events. Apparently the Obama administration played a key background role. It appears that God has hardened the leaders to vote en masse against Israel so that God’s hand of judgement can come to liberate Jerusalem.You can hear the loud applause by members of the UN security council. They know not what they have done. Continue reading
Some Christian friends were commenting on Pope Francis humble lifestyle as compared to the mega church pastors in Singapore. They have a good point but the Pope position is one of an elected institution whereas the mega church senior pastors grew their churches out of nothing much.
As i reflected, i don’t even have a house but a small rented room whilst some of my gay christian friends are so very privileged even more luxurious lifestyle than a mega pastor’s wife. I can only look forward to my mansion in heaven.
The Cape Town Declaration against gays claiming that the marriage between one man and one woman is the “bedrock of civil society” and at the “heart of any just social order” is not really Christian or blibical despite being signed by Singapore dominion gate keeper Rev Lawrence Khong. This is set in Africa where deep poverty, wars, and corruption reigns despite racial equality and being people of faith. Are gays to be blamed of the failure of Africa to prosper? No longer having the colonialist to blame! Continue reading
Rom 1:21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
The Mainline Christians have been continuously blaming white evangelical Christians for Clinton’s lost. They claimed it was them fearing about loosing white privilege. But Pew Research showed only 1% more whites voted for Trump than in the last election. Only 1% more women votes voted for Clinton. So Clinton did not really fire up her base or there ain’t many liberal Christians left. It is perhaps the end of a mainline christian century where much good has been done.
Trump had a slogan “Make America great again” but no one could remember Clinton’s much the same again. Ironically, Bernie Sanders would probably had beaten Trump. But nobody bothered for Clinton was a sure win, against Trump’s deplorables.
Some Christians were careful not to mention that a stunning 6% less Latinos and 7% less Blacks voted for Clinton than Obama. The election was lost in many states by the same numbers after normalisation. They were so confident of victory that they did not get out to vote. They thought the polls gave certain victory especially since Trump was doing his best to undermine his campaign and many times his record in the past were morally lacking. Continue reading
