The End is Near

The day is nearer than you think, so says Paul the apostle. Last Friday I witnessed the launch of the neuralink technology where chips could be implanted to the brain to create a symbiosis between machine and man. It's scary stuff and we are nearer to the day when the number of 666 will be implanted or stamped in the foreheads or at the right hands (Rev 13:18). So it serves as a spur for me to conduct end-time seminars perhaps instead of twice a year, three or four times a year. It's likely that I will doing exactly that next month and also in September in two different Districts, one at the foot of Mount Kinabalu and one in the far north. It also confirms what I mentioned to the pastor and elders of the church on Sunday that as long as the doors of ministry are open for me, I will hang around. The spiritual malaise of today is not just in Sabah or Borneo but worldwide. As Amos prophesied there will be times, not famine of food or drink but of hearing the word of the Lord.
Many churches are stuck with their traditions and they preach the commandments taught by men but not the Word of God. How many people or churches can truly say they are open to all what the Bible has in store- from Genesis to Revelation. Sometimes some hermeneutical errors crept in and barriers are raised against the true understanding of the Word of God. No wonder Jesus said, "You err because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God". Errors normally fall under one or two of these categories. Either they do not enough of Scripture and hence they misinterpret it like Peter said of Paul's writings that contain difficult things but the unstable and ungodly twist to their own destruction. Some people may even claim to know the truth but it is church dogma but not the truth because they refuse to see the light of God's Word as the Holy Spirit opens our eyes and leads us into all truth. Sometimes people are stuck in the past, their forefathers or founders' ways of seeing Scripture but they refuse to acknowledge that God has His prophets and servants in the end time to tell the church the truth and to prepare her for the coming of Jesus Christ. It is therefore incumbent on every individual to have a humble spirit and teachable heart to listen what the Spirit is saying to the churches, corporately and individually as he who overcomes shall receive eternal rewards.
