Pastor's Notes

July 2020

Shalom and GOOD morning to each one of you, WELCOME HOME!

Thank our God, HE IS truly  good to every one of us during these past 3 over months of pandemic COVID-19 issue. In Malaysia we’ve move from MCO to CMCO, and now RMCO since the lockdown for prevention, containment and dealing with this pandemic matter.

First of all, we want to thank our God for His mercy upon our beloved country Malaysia. Secondly, for our government, the Health Ministry, front-liners, PDRM, arm forces, etc. for their sacrifices and tireless efforts in dealing with this pandemic.  And lastly, a big ‘Thank you’ to everyone involved in helping Malaysia to recover fast and well. Though we are NOT totally out of this pandemic yet, but together we — the rakyat cooperating with the Government has positive outcome.  Syabas Malaysia!

In the midst of this pandemic, where millions of people are jobless, restaurants, businesses, hotels that went bust, and millions of lives perished— the world is never the same again.  Yet in all these happenings we can’t deny that God IS STILL GOOD and is STILL IN CONTROL.   Amen!

Church, during all these happenings for these past 3-4 months, I heard a very clear message that is — “Jesus’ return is very near.”  The question is this: ARE WE READY for His return?

Matthew 24:36-44,
36 “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. 37 “When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. 38 In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. 39 People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes. 40 “Two men will be working together in the field; one will be taken, the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding flour at the mill; one will be taken, the other left. 42 “So you, too, must keep watch! For you don’t know what day your Lord is coming. 43 Understand this: If a homeowner knew exactly when a burglar was coming, he would keep watch and not permit his house to be broken into. 44 You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.” [NLT]

This message is NOT to instil fear, but rather a wake-up call to everyone of us that Jesus’ return for His church is so near.  In fact, it can be any time!  The question is: AM I READY if He return today?  Brothers and sisters, let’s BE READY and be vigilant for His return.  Amen!

That’s all for now, and I will continue to shed more light on the Second Coming of Jesus in the next bulletin.  So take care, stay healthy and safe, and have a great, fruitful and blessed July.  Remember to stay connected with the church through our online services, TOW Facebook and Instagram., etc.

May YOU be BLESSED!


Sincerely,
Pastor Christopher & Marianne Mun

牧师的讯息 - 七月刊

Shalom奉耶稣的圣名向大家问安,欢迎大家回家!

在过去3个月的新冠肺炎COVID-19疫情大爆发期间,我们依然感恩因神是美善的。马来西亚自遏制和应对这种大流行病而进行封锁以来,我们已经从最初的行管令(MCO),到有条件行管令 (CMCO),至现在的复苏期行管令(RMCO),进入有好几个阶段的行管令。

首先,我们要为着所爱的马来西亚来感谢神,感谢神对这个国家的怜悯。其次是,我们的政府、卫生部、前线人员、大马皇家警察、军队等等,为着处理这种大流行疫情而付出的牺牲和坚持不懈的努力,防止疫情的散播在国家和马来西亚人民的身上。因此,我想趁着这个机会向所有参与前线服务,帮助马来西亚更快战胜疫情的你们说一声:“谢谢!”尽管我们还未完全摆脱这疫情,但当大马人民与政府一起合作,便能取得积极的成果。马来西亚棒极了!

全世界有成千上万的人口因着这疫情而受苦。许多人失业、餐厅、生意和酒店都相继倒闭;而这个世界也不能恢复像之前一样的日子。然而,在一切所发生的事上,我们都不能否定一个事实。那就是上帝依然美善,祂依然掌权。阿们!

教会弟兄姐妹,在过去3至4个月,关乎世界所发生的所有事,我听见一个清晰的信息,那就是 ——“耶稣再次回来真的近了!”问题是:当祂回来时,你预备好了吗?

马太福音 24:36-44
36 至于那日子和时间,没有人知道,连天上的使者和子也不知道,只有父知道。37 挪亚的时代怎样,人子降临的时候也是这样。38 洪水之前的时代,人们吃喝嫁娶,直到挪亚进入方舟的那一天;39 等到洪水来到,把他们冲去,他们才明白过来;人子降临的时候也是这样。40 那时,两个人在田里工作,一个被接去,一个撇下来;41 两个女人在磨坊推磨,一个被接去,一个撇下来。42 因此,你们要警醒,因为不知道你们的主什么时候要来。43 你们都知道,家主若晓得窃贼晚上什么时候会来就会提高警觉,不让他摸进屋里。44 所以,你们也要准备妥当,因为在想不到的时候,人子就来了。”[新译本]

这信息不是要带给大家恐惧,而是一个警醒,呼吁我们……耶稣为祂教会回来的日子近了。事实上,可以在任何时候!问题是:我是否预备好耶稣的再来呢?弟兄姐妹,让我们预备好警惕自己祂的再来,阿们!

下一回我会继续在月刊里分享有关耶稣再来的一些亮光。因此,你们要好好照顾身体,保持健康与照顾安全,拥有一个美好、丰盛与蒙福的7月。记得透过敬拜堂的脸书页, Instagram和其他教会的网页参与网上聚会与我们保持联系。

愿神赐福你!

主爱,
文牧师
