PS: As of now. PLEASE DON'T MESSAGE THE GROUP DIRECTLY if you're facing problems or need to ask questions. Ask it in the FRONT PAGE HERE on the COMMENTS BAR. Thanks.

We're looking to implement a chatroom, but we need experienced people and reliable moderators to help manage it. If anything, PM ANY of the founders or contributors.

Welcome to the group!

First off, there are NO REQUIREMENTS to join this group. So go ahead, just as long as you don't purposely try to cause trouble.

Let your walk with Christ be a faithful one and do not be swayed by the devil.

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2

Our purpose? Simple, to be the light in unfamiliar darkness, to lead with love and not by force. The door is open, you choose whether you want to walk through it or not, we cannot force you.

God Bless.

NOTE: You can join this group at anytime, but please DO be appropriate, if you really do wish to be part of this group, please respect this group's intent. If you intend to post a comment denouncing God, don't waste your time, it WILL be deleted for this is a place of dedication for God and God alone. (That also means going on about why you don't believe in God, even if you don't mind that others do. Sorry, but this IS a Christian group)

Apologies for the -MASSIVE- hiatus in terms of sermons. This admin was swamped :c God has to come first though :/

However.. if you'd like to help~ Do give him a PM ^.=.^

We would love to foster a community of discussion among the people of this group. So talk a little, discuss topics and more in the comments section below!~


Disclaimer: Should any part of this blog entry seem wrong in the eyes of the Christian community, please do not hesitate to comment or alert any of the co-founders or people in authority. After all, all human beings have fallen and are prone to making mistakes, please do so to ensure that we will not preach false truths and thus stumble our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. Also note that the sermon has been paraphrased to fit the medium in which it is presented in. We are NOT pastors, instead, we are Christians GUIDED BY pastors. So should any need whatsoever present itself to require pastoral advice, we will direct you to them.

Faith: A Raising Davidic Generation
Brother Ka Fei (TCC, SG)
=============================

1 Samuel 17
www.biblegateway.com/passage/?…

Champion: To be inbetween

God's champion establishes God's kingdom by bridging between God's will and desire and what is.

David was a champion of God
Goliath was a champion of war

We are all called to be Champions! We are called to bridge the gap between God's will and what is!

You can bring change and stand between.

Consequentially, YOU are God's champion, in all things. Since Jesus is with you.




And God has a good plan for you!

Romans 8:28 (NIV)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.


And He has a plan for you -RIGHT NOW-! So you are a Champion -NOW-!

=============================

Postures of Faith

1 Samuel 17:3 (NIV)
The Philistines occupied one hill and the Israelites another, with the valley between them.



Hills are a tactical advantages in war
Both nations kept it safe, they were at a stalemate for 40 days


David didn't. He ran towards the battle in Faith.



1 Samuel 17:48 (NIV)
As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him.



Ask Yourself: Have you been staying on your hill and keeping it safe? Salvation of friends? Education?

We need to be vulnerable, else we'll lack in apostolic fulfillment, because you -have- to step out of your comfort zone in faith to succeed!

A champion partners with God to make the what is, into what God wants.

-------------------------------------------
Ask Yourself: Will you avail yourself for God?


Because Israel didn't.

1 Samuel 17:24 (NIV)
When the Israelites saw the man, they all ran from him in great fear.




David did.



1 Samuel 17:26 (NIV)
David asked the men standing near him, "What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and removes this disgrace from Israel? Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?"

1 Samuel 17:34 (NIV)
But David said to Saul, "Your servant has been keeping his father's sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock,



We can if God can. Because as long as we align to His will, He will be faithful and will go with you.

-------------------------------------------
Of course, this faith will be challenged and questioned. But you have to persevere.

1 Samuel 17:28-31 (NIV)
When Eliab, David's oldest brother, heard him speaking with the men, he burned with anger at him and asked, "Why have you come down here? And with whom did you leave those few sheep in the desert? I know how conceited you are and how wicked your heart is; you came down only to watch the battle." [29] "Now what have I done?" said David. "Can't I even speak?" [30] He then turned away to someone else and brought up the same matter, and the men answered him as before. [31] What David said was overheard and reported to Saul, and Saul sent for him.



David persevered while Israel's faith crumbled.

-------------------------------------------
1 Samuel 17:3 (NIV)
The Philistines occupied one hill and the Israelites another, with the valley between them.

1 Samuel 17:4-7 (NIV)
A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. He was over nine feet tall. [5] He had a bronze helmet on his head and wore a coat of scale armor of bronze weighing five thousand shekels ; [6] on his legs he wore bronze greaves, and a bronze javelin was slung on his back. [7] His spear shaft was like a weaver's rod, and its iron point weighed six hundred shekels. His shield bearer went ahead of him.

1 Samuel 17:38 (NIV)
Then Saul dressed David in his own tunic. He put a coat of armor on him and a bronze helmet on his head.

1 Samuel 17:51 (NIV)
David ran and stood over him. He took hold of the Philistine's sword and drew it from the scabbard. After he killed him, he cut off his head with the sword. When the Philistines saw that their hero was dead, they turned and ran.


The armies trusted in earthly vessels and weapons and ways.


David trusted in God


1 Samuel 17:37 (NIV)
The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine." Saul said to David, "Go, and the Lord be with you."

1 Samuel 17:39 (NIV)
David fastened on his sword over the tunic and tried walking around, because he was not used to them. "I cannot go in these," he said to Saul, "because I am not used to them." So he took them off.

1 Samuel 17:45 (NIV)
David said to the Philistine, "You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.



Only if you avail yourself, will you see transformation.

Ask Yourself: What is it that -you- want to do for God this year? What does God want you to do this year? What changes or breakthroughs do you want to see in your life this year?


Those who trusted in earthly things did not change their situation. David transformed the situation and established God's kingdom.

There is no 100% solution. If you want to see a change, persevere and keep trying.

Because victory and salvation, is a process.

Jesus sacrificed such that you would be able to.

Ask Yourself: Will you?

Keep looking towards what God desires and embrace the path to the journey towards the victory



The greatest way to understand and learn faith is to grow under authority.
Honor authority!

In technicality, if God is with you, you are effectively invincible!

Honor your authority!

H-old in high regard
O-pen communication (Don't talk behind their back)
N-umber 1 fan (Number one fan in public, open critic in private with them) (No one likes to be put down in public, but tell them one-on-one)
O-bserve ourselves (Check ourselves for hyppcrisy! Are we at fault as well?)
R-elentless belief


If you have any questions or comments, do post them here and we will try to the best of our ability to answer them. If there are, however, questions in which we alone cannot answer, we will direct you to a pastor.

After all, the biblical way a sermon is presented is a two-way conversation and not one that is one-way, so do post your views, comments etc.

PS: THIS IS NOT OUR SERMON. Source is stated above

ALSO. We are looking for more people to help format the sermons, or even come up with them. Do PM Distilda to show your interest and we'll get back to you c:

I need some serious prayers:
1. I am currently required to go to real estate school at this time and cannot make any calls until I get licensed.
2. My aunt is really concerned that I am living outside of my means now because I just collect social security while not earning a dime at the firm and so I am looking for work.   So please pray for me.

A close friend of mine lost his service dog and companion yesterday. Please keep him in your prayers. My friend loved that dog to pieces and used to take her to parties everywhere. I even loved that dog.

I was hit by a car last week and shouted Jesus' name three times during impact. Because I called on his name, I just have a broken ankle and bruises. So anyone who calls on the name of the L-rd shall be saved.

My family is in need of some prayers. I am not going to say what but they do need a lot of praying for. I will also mention that I have not spoken to my parents in two years. This is due to several problems. However, I am praying behind the scenes and forgiving them. Please pray for this situation.
