R.I.P Passengers and crews of MH 370

It is indeed a sad day for Malaysia and the world.  Last evening the Prime Minister of Malaysia announced that experts from Britain had calculated that MH 370 ended its journey in the Indian Ocean near to Perth, Australia.  It was a heart breaking news because it meant no hope of rescue.  At this time only our hearts can go out to those who perished and also with their relatives.  We do not understand, only God can undesrtand.

In fact, the Chief steward Nari is from my home state of Sarawak.  He is from Sibu about half hour flight from Kuching here. ( picture of he and his daughter ).

Let us continue to pray for those who are gone and also for their relatives.  May God give the living peace, let them turn to Him because only He can undesrtand and heal their wounds.

Former pilot Chris Goodfellow gave a reasonable explanation of the turn back of MH 370, and possibility of the plane heading towards Pulau Langkawi along the Malaysian coast to make an emergengy landing.  Unforturnately this did not happen.

It has been three weeks now, with no sign of MH 370.

Let us continue to pray for all on board and their next of kins.  Our hearts go out to these people.  May they find strength in God.

MH 370 Glimpse of Rapture ?


 In the midst of confusion, and the myterious dissapearing of flight MH 370, an author postulated that this event could be a glimpse of rapture, the day after Jesus' second coming.  This would be a foretaste if this author is right.

She quoted 1 Thess. 4:16-17 :

"For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever".

Nigerian Pastor Prohecized Crash of MH370 ?

A Negerian Pastor T.B Joshua claimed that he propencized the crash of flight MH 370 in July 2013.  To my mind it may be a prophecy but it appeared that no one took notice of it.

The plane is still missing despite the massive search and rescue efforts by so many countries now.

Recent news seem to say that the plane is hijacked because the transponder had been switched off manually.  If the hijack brought the plane to a undisclosed location now, it may be a welcome news.  This means the passengers on board may still be alive.

Let us continue to pray for all passengers, and crews on board, their relatives and the rescue teams now on the ground.  Oh God have mercy on all of them!

Combined Prayer Quarter 1 2014

Last night, Kuching Minister Fellwoship (KMF ) organised a prayer gathering at Calvary Family Church, Kuching.  This was the first such prayer gathering organized by KMF this year.

The response was very encouraging as more than 200 people packed the worship sanctuary of the church.  Many young people were in attendence too.  The music worship as well as sunsequent prayers for various issues were very fervent with plenty of prayers in tongues.

There were three main prayers points:

1.  Pray for repentance and revival - the sense is people are not repenting as they should as God desired us to repent always.  If we said we have not sinned we are liars, and the truths are not in us. Only with genuine repentance, revival will come to this land.  We pray revival will spread from East Malaysia to the rest of our country.

2. Pray for the Church - the Malaysian Church is under attack and we need to pray for all church leaders to persevere and pray more.  All churches regardless of denominations should come together to pray and uphold our position in this country.  God has purpose for us here. Despite the troubles He wanted us to be salt and light for Him. We must wake up from spiritual slumber!

3. Pray for national interests like the Allah cases, and missing flight MH370 - all the Allah cases that went to courts recently have been upheld by the courts, no decision has been made.  We do not understand this situation, but we know God is soverign and He has His plans no matter the out come.  We continue to pray for favourable out comes.  He is our only hope.

The theme of this prayer gathering is in 2 Chronicles 7:14

"if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

Lost Flight MH 370

All over the world peoples' hearts go out to the families of the passengers on flight MH 370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.  The flight never made it to Beijing.  The mystery is that there is no trace of this plane after more than 40 hours now.  Indeed, it is a mystery to all of us and more so to the families of the passengers.

All of us are praying for a miracle.  Let us continue to pray for all involved, passengers, their families, and all rescue teams now in the vicinity.  May God be with all of them.

AM I Sarawak's Keeper ?

Last Sunday, a speaker shared at our church.  The title of his sharing was "Am I Sarawak's Keeper ?". This is an important question for all Sarawakians because our rights have been threathened over the years.  In particular now, our religious rights as Christians.  He illustrated his point with Genesis 4:9 when God asked Cain where was Abel.  Cairn answered whether he was his brother's keeper.  His answer implied a) I don't know b) I don't care.  Well, as Sarawakians do we care or not ?

If we want to keep our rights as Sarawakians we must care because this has been promised to us before we join the Federation to form Malaysia in 1963.  Sarawak and Sabah were equal partners in forming Malaysia.  Sarawak has not given up its religious rights unlike Sabah. Meaning, Sarawak does not have a state religion.  People are free to worship.

The speaker also said we are here not by accident.  He supported his argument by refering to Colossians 3:11, Deutoronomy 32:7-9.

Indeed Sarawak has been blessed because we were ruled by the Brooke and British govrnment who were essentially Christians.  Principles they applied were Christian based.  All in we were rule 122 years by them.  From them we had our Christianity, Christian heritage, system of government, and generally freedom in Sarawak.

Before Sarawak join the Federation to form Malaysia, the British was very concerned and in many of their documents they emphazied the need for religious freedom for the people of Sarawak. Sadly we are seeing this freedom slowly being eroded.  According to the speaker it is by God's grace that dispite the persecution the numbers of Christians increased from 7.9% in 1947 to 42.6% in 2000.  Therefore, we must continue our efforts to ensure Christians have our rights to practise our religion in Sarawak.

If you are a Sarawakian you should ask yourself "Am I Sarawak's keeper?"
