The Mind War

When you got born again, you were born into two things – firstly, a FAMILY and you’re no longer an orphan nor a slave, but part of a royal family. Secondly, you were born into a KINGDOM. Your born-again status automatically qualifies you to be a citizen of the Kingdom of God, and the moment that happened, you were immediately marked out by Satan. One of the great battles we’ve to war against is the MIND. How do we overcome […]

God’s Secret Weapon

It’s amazing the role and influence mothers have played in the Bible. Consider Hannah and her influence over the prophet Samuel; Manoah’s wife over Samson; or Bathsheba over Solomon. And most of all, Mary’s godly influence over Jesus. Why is this important? Because the issue of gender has always been a divisive matter, even up till the time of Jesus. But the coming of the Holy Spirit was the game changer. If you do not yet know this, mothers, you’re […]

Load Limits

A plane has a limit on how much it can carry, depending on the size of the carrier. Its maximum take-off weight is calculated ahead and strictly adhered to so that it does not end in tragedy. We all have load limits, and the God who knows our load limits is the same God who limits our load. He has created us with limitations and ignoring the warning signs on our dashboard can be detrimental.

The Predicament of Respectability

Do you know what the problem is for most of us? Respectability. Especially in our Asian culture, we care too much about what people think of us. If we don’t break through the barrier of respectability, we’re going to miss some of the most amazing encounters and miracles in our lives. Just read your Bibles. The ones who were most willing to lose their respectability were the ones most likelyto receive their miracle!

Stewarding A Multi-Generational Move of God

In this year’s Combined Service message, Ps. Yang reiterates the importance of having an inter-generational perspective and vision. Though each generation has its distinctive characteristic, we’re all interconnected in what is called, ‘The Synergy of Ages’. As David served God’s will in his generation, we must also ensure that each generation accomplishes what God has for it. How do we steward a multi-generational move of God and serve and honour the other?

Old Lives Matter

This is a special weekend where we talk about and honour the caregivers in our midst. The only thing worse than losing someone you love suddenly is losing them slowly. Oftentimes, there are no miracles – just surgery, chemo, or the loss of memory, mobility, speech and even hair. Until the person you once knew doesn’t even look familiar anymore. That’s why the Church is essential in such a circumstance. If you’re a caregiver, here are two words – JESUS […]

How I Kept My Sanity After 34 Years In Ministry

This is my 34th year in full-time ministry and I can’t think of anything else I want to do for the rest of my life. I love 100% what I’m doing and I’d not exchange it for anything in the world! But I think the role of a senior pastor is probably one of the most intense and difficult jobs there is on the planet. So how in 34 years of ministry have I kept a semblance of sanity? That’s […]

Why I Will Not Sell You Snake Oil

I don’t ever want to be guilty of feeding you with sugar water, nor have a church full of people with rotting and decaying teeth. The Pentecostal Church today is guilty of fostering a culture of spiritual babies who crave sugary words of destiny while their teeth are rotting. Prophetic conferences are packed with children who are malnourished because they’ve never been taught the strong Word of the Lord. They like to laugh, shake, fall, but they do not tremble […]

The Law of Unintended Consequences

There’s a law in Scripture called the ‘Law of Unintended Consequences’. Wisdom warns there comes a point in time that if we keep ignoring her, it becomes too late to avoid the consequences. And we’re not talking about salvation, because it’s never too late to be saved. But when the things God’s wisdom intends to protect us from in life such as bankruptcy, sexually-transmitted diseases, mental breakdown, addictions, divorce etc. go unheeded – when we keep rejecting wisdom, there’ll be […]

The Bird Catcher

Psalm 124:7-8 says, ‘Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.’ If you’re reading from the NKJV, both verses use two rather archaic words – ‘snare’ and ‘fowler’. But if you’ve a modern translation, you’ll discover the word for ‘snare’ is sometimes translated as net or trap. The fowler is a bird-catcher or […]
