Praise and Worship songs performed:
(I missed out some songs before this)
  1. I Will Come and Bow Down - Martin J. Nystrom
  2. As the Deer - Maranatha! Music
  3. Times of Refreshing - Martin J. Nystrom

In God’s kingdom there is no time.
He can accelerate your growth, He can give you a miracle such that you get what you need faster than it would happen in the natural.

In the midst of your sin, confess that you are the righteousness of God in Christ. God calls those things that are not as though they are.

Abram wanted children but he and his wife were barren.
God changed Abram’s name to Abraham which means “Father of Multitudes” so every time he introduced himself, he was calling the things that were not as though they were.

Right believing will lead to right living. Jesus said by their fruits you will know them.

People can’t break additions by themselves. It takes Jesus. Not by might, not by power, but by His Spirit.

Not all things in our lives are good. Sometimes they are from the devil, sometimes they are problems of our own making.
But God will work all these things together for our good.

Jesus was never sick. Jesus never lacked financial provision. He is truly prosperous - There was always supply when He had a need.

Jesus became poor at the cross. He was destitute of every material good there. He became poor so that we could become rich.

There is still sin in us, but not on us. God does not see our sins on us - they were already punished in the body of Jesus at the cross!

Isaiah 53:5 - The word “bruised” in Hebrew means “crushed”. The word “chastisement” in Hebrew means “punishment”.


“But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5 NKJV)


God's discipline is not His judgment - it is for your good


John 5:24 - If you are a believer who is going through a trial now, be assured that God is not punishing you for something you did in the past. 
There is no judgment in your future, child of God! 
You died when Christ died, you were seated in heavenly places when Christ was seated in heavenly places. 
In John 10, Jesus said that believers will never perish. 
The word “never” in the Hebrew is a strong double negative “umei”. 
Never allow obscure passages in the Bible to rob you of the joy of sure passages. You cannot lose your salvation.
The scriptures don’t contradict each other. 
If it seems like it’s saying that a believer can lose his salvation, most likely you have not received the correct interpretation of it yet. 


““Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.” (John 5:24 NKJV)

Proverbs 13:24 - God disciplines you because He loves you. Don’t discipline your child when he or she is tired or hungry.
But they are never too young to be disciplined. 
If you don’t use the rod you are hating your child (little children). 
For older children you can discipline with words and withdrawal of privileges. 
As long as they need your money, you can discipline them. 
When children are disciplined they feel loved - they want to feel like their parents care about them. 
Don’t slap your child on the face. That’s robbing them of dignity. 
The rob is for the backside. 
Discipline your child fast when he or she makes the mistake. The word "promptly" in the Hebrew means in the morning.
Give 3 warnings and then discipline. Your child needs to know that you mean what you say.
God encourages us to discipline our children when they show constant and repeated rebellion. 


“He who spares his rod hates his son, But he who loves him disciplines him promptly.” (Proverbs 13:24 NKJV)

Proverbs 13:18 - Those who don’t receive correction are limited in their promotions by God. 
God wants to take them to a higher place but they are closed to correction.
God doesn’t discipline you with diseases or accidents. Jesus bore our sicknesses.
He was made poor so that we would be made rich. 
What He bore we don’t have to bear. 
You ought to feel loved when God disciplines you. 
He doesn’t discipline people who are not His children. 
God can use people and circumstances to discipline us. 
The primary way which we disciplines us is through His word. 
He disciplines us because He loves us and wants us to have a good future. 
It’s better to go through the school of the Holy Spirit than the school of hard knocks. 
King Solomon has tried every worldly pleasure and his conclusion is that everything is vanity of vanities. 
The only that matters is your relationship with God. 
The word discipline in Greek is “padeo” which means “child train”.
Backslidden Christians don’t lose their salvation but they lose out on their eternal rewards. 
They are not reading their Bibles, so God disciplines such Christians through circumstances to frustrate them, to lead them back to the right path. 
A mother eagle encourages her young to leave the nest by removing the comforts of the nest and by pushing them out of the nest.
When they are about to hit the ground, the mother eagle catches them. All this while, the mother eagle is thinking about their good. 
One day, the young eagle realizes that it can fly and soar, experiencing a greater freedom than before. 


“Poverty and shame will come to him who disdains correction, But he who regards a rebuke will be honored.” (Proverbs 13:18 NKJV)

There’s no such thing as freethinkers. They are not free to think - they are controlled by evil thoughts.
Those who have the Son are free indeed.

Freedom within confines is good. The rules are what makes a game fun. 

Those who practice promiscuous sex are not really happy. Studies show that Christian married couples have the best sex. 

Hebrews 12:7-11 - God’s chastening will cause you to live and not die.
God ordained policemen. They are not a terror to good works, only to evil works. 
God’s discipline is for our profit, not for His profit. 
We will learn how to partake of His holiness - Jesus is our holiness. Not earn our own holiness. 
God doesn’t discipline you with death - there is an “afterward” for you after discipline. 
Jesus took our punishment, but we can still receive God’s discipline. 


“If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” (Hebrews 12:7-11 NKJV)

Testimonial about Milton's writing:


"Milton Goh my brother, your insight on Grace has set me free from 20 yrs of addiction. 

I was a 7 time felon but by the GRACE of God I am now an ordained minister. 

Here is some of my story: I was saved in Dec 2016 and started evangelizing in July of 2017 as soon as I was released. 

My ministry has led over 800 to Jesus. I go to jails, rehabs, homeless shelters plus numerous churches! 

Your notes and sermons allowed me to find rest in Jesus. I was getting tired trying to perform what I thought God needed from me. 

You have made me realize it's 100% the CROSS and now I go constantly for Jesus but never get tired. 

Thanks for your wisdom and love for Jesus. May God bless you and your family!"

"Hi Milton, just finished reading your book. Truly awe-inspiring! The Holy Spirit is all over this. I say this because I only ever listen to teachings from a few ministers, but I kept being drawn to this teaching.
After many distractions, I eventually got around to actually watching your video. I’m so glad I did.
It created a new hunger in me to dig deeper in the Word, but this time reading it through a different lens. Your book has definitely helped me understand this topic a lot better.
Thank you for sharing this revelation with us Milton Goh. May many more be blessed by your work as I have been. God Bless you abundantly!"

“How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver.” (PROVERBS 16:16 AMP)

When the devil attacks you, you will emerge into a wealthier place after the trial

Psalms 60:8 - God used Moab to discipline Israel.
Sometimes God makes us see the error of our ways by showing us other people who are like us. 
Jacob deceived his father by pretending to be Esau. 
Later on his children deceived him that Joseph was dead. 
Jacob’s name means “deceiver”. Jacob met a greater deceiver than him - his father-in-law Laban. 
Laban gave his older daughter Leah (who had weak eyes) to him in marriage instead of Rachel whom Jacob loved. 


“Moab is My washpot; Over Edom I will cast My shoe; Philistia, shout in triumph because of Me.”” (Psalms 60:8 NKJV)

Psalm 66:12 - Sometimes you confess favor but still experience a trial. 
God allows people to ride over our heads to discipline us.
We will come out into a wealthy place. We will not leave the trial the same way we came in.
The words “wealthy place” in Hebrew is “revayah”. 


“Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.” (Psalms 66:12 KJV)

Psalm 23:5 - The words “runs over” is also “revayah”.

“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.” (Psalms 23:5 NKJV)

Evil spirits and witchcraft are real, but God’s victory at the cross is even more real. 
Black magic cannot be cast on a Christian. 
The blood of Christ covers and protects us. 

Deuteronomy 28:6-7 - We are blessed everywhere we go because God's blessing is upon us! 
Because you are blessed, you will be attacked. 
Face your troubles. You will see their defeat. 
Your enemies come against you united at first, but they will flee before you scattered perfectly (7 is the number of perfection). 
It is much better for the devil not to attack you - 
If you respond correctly to the attack, you will gain more territories and the enemy will have to give up more. 


““Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out. “The LORD will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.” (Deuteronomy 28:6-7 NKJV)

I Peter 5:8-11 - As far as you are concerned, keep the devil seeking.
It is important to have correct believing so that the devil cannot devour you. 
The devil cannot tempt you beyond what is experienced by all your brotherhood in all the world. 
God may allow you to be tempted but He doesn’t sanction it. 
After you have suffered the devil’s attack, get ready for the perfecting, establishing, strengthening and settling! 


“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.” (I Peter 5:8-11 NKJV)

Genesis 15:13-14 - When the children of Israel came out of Egypt after their slavery, the 3 million plus of them came out with lots of silver and gold and there were none feeble. 
God gave them compensation with lots of bonuses for all the suffering they endured in Egypt.


“Then He said to Abram: “Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. And also the nation whom they serve I will judge; afterward they shall come out with great possessions.” (Genesis 15:13-14 NKJV)

Surround yourselves with people who can give you good counsel. 
After Solomon asked God for wisdom, the next chapter is a list of his administrators who helped him in his counsel. 

The first person mentioned in the list was a priest - Solomon’s pastor. 
Be careful who you listen to because it has to do with your right believing. 

Solomon even had a Remembrancer - someone to remind him of what God has done. 
Why does he, the world’s wisest man, need a Remembrancer? 
It is a sign of Solomon’s wisdom and humility. 
He that walks with wise men will be wise. 

Solomon asked God for a hearing heart - tantamount to asking for wisdom. 
The next chapter, Solomon listened to two prostitutes. 
The ability to listen is a sign that you have received wisdom. 
People who seek out wise counsel have received wisdom. 


Pastor Prince’s Closing Prayer:
He prayed for our protection, great favor this week and for the enduring faith to persevere through our trials. We will come out into a wealthy place!

​18 July 2018 - Encounter Night: If God is for You, What can be Against You - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes - New Creation Church Sermon Notes

​Praise and Worship songs performed:
  1. Reckless Love - Caleb Culver
  2. Yes Jesus Loves Me
  3. Defender - John-Paul Gentile 

Psalms 116:12-13 - The best way to thank God for His benefits to you is to take some more from Him. He sees that as a thank-you.

“What shall I render to the LORD For all His benefits toward me? I will take up the cup of salvation, And call upon the name of the LORD.” (Psalms 116:12-13 NKJV)

Pastor Prince spoke prophetically that there’s a “turnaround” coming in your life - your finances, health, relationships, etc! 

This is a service of receiving. “Dead spots” in your life will come alive again (examples: parts of your body because of aging, your memory) 
The Holy Spirit who quickens the dead will do it.
When God restores, it’s never the same like it was before - it will be even better. Your memory will be even better than before! 

There is a grace revolution happening all around the world. 
The revelations and word being taught from this church are being repeated in other ministries worldwide.
When hearing it from other ministries, remember that you first heard it from the "authorized dealer" (Pastor Prince). 

The Bible says that we are transformed by beholding Jesus. 
We become like Him not by working or laboring, but by beholding Him. 

Teaching about Jesus is practical because the revelation of Him will overflow to other areas in your life.
For example, the Bible says husbands love your wives like how Jesus loves the church. 
Having the revelation of the love of Christ in your heart will lead to you showing love to your spouse.

The Bible says that we are risen with Christ, so we should act like the precious gold that we are. Not by acting 'high and mighty' or being arrogant, but by exuding the dignity of Christ - we are set apart from the world.  
Stones are common, but precious gems and metals like gold and diamonds are rare and valuable.


You can never lose your salvation - don't listen to Saul-ish vial-mentality sermons

Romans 8:28-29 - The Greek word for “know” is “eido” which means to see it on the inside. It's not just knowing in your mind, but knowing it in your heart. 
God will work ALL things that the devil throws at you, for your good.
This promise is for believers, not for the people of the world.
Everything is happening not to make you more rich or famous. If you think that way, you're missing the point.
Everything is working together to make you more like Jesus.
Jesus never lacked when He needed something. When He needed tax money, He received it. When He needed food, it was multiplied for Him. 
God wants you abundantly supplied. Prosperity doesn’t mean having a lot of money in your bank account. 
It means God supplying you whenever you have a need. 
Jesus is tender but not soft. He is loving but not indulging. 
When something bad happens in your life, remember that God is on your side. God is not the Source of your problems. 
Stop thinking “What did I do to cause this to happen?”. That’s legalism. God is no longer holding you responsible for your sins. Jesus already paid for all your sins at the cross. 
If you are living in habitual sin, God won’t let accidents or sicknesses happen to you but He may make things difficult for you.
He let Jacob meet someone (his father-in-law Laban) who deceived him, because Jacob first deceived his father Isaac.
God doesn’t discipline you with sickness or accidents. But He will shake your world and make you frustrated. 
This is because He loves you and is disciplining you for your profit and you will live if you receive His discipline.
If a believer has an addiction to smoking, he or she will still go to heaven, but faster. 


“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” (Romans 8:28-29 NKJV)

John 10:28-29 - The word “never” in Hebrew is “umei” which is a double negative. 
It is a strong assurance that you can never lose your salvation.
You can’t jump out of the Father’s hand. You are safe for eternity in-between Jesus’ and the Father’s hands - a divine sandwich. 


“And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.” (John 10:28-29 NKJV)

A person can taste and yet never partake. He or she may experience the goodness of God in a service and witness miracles being performed but still never believe in Jesus.
That person will depart from the experience into a deeper darkness than before because he or she has received a revelation of Jesus and yet did not believe. 

Some exorcists cast out demons not by Jesus’ name. 
The demons may leave temporarily but they will enter again with seven other demons - bigger problems for the victim.
Then on the last day, these exorcists will claim to have performed miracles in God’s name.
But Jesus will say, “I never knew you”. Never means never.
It doesn’t mean blotting out one’s name from the Book of Life - for that to happen, it means that Jesus had to know that person before. 

John 6:39-40 - To believe in Jesus is to do the will of the Father. 


“This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”” (John 6:39-40 NKJV)

Romans 3:26 - God the Father is your Justifier. He sent Jesus to die for us so that there is a righteous basis for our justification.
Jesus’ death fulfilled all the requirements of the Law. 


"to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus." (Romans 3:26 NKJV)

Romans 8:33 - God is not stern with us. He is our Justifier. Here it says God, not Jesus. 

“Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.” (Romans 8:33 NKJV)

The Judgment (Bema) Seat of Christ is not for us to be punished but for us to receive eternal rewards for the good works that we have done during our lifetime. 
We will be standing there in our new glorified bodies. The Judge (Jesus) is our righteousness. 

We will not be judged at the Great White Throne Judgment. That’s for unbelievers. 

All of us who attend Encounter Night are leaders. We want to feed on revelation because we have seen the light of the Lord.
Not everyone is called to be leaders. 

I Samuel 16:1 - The children of Israel wanted a human king to rule over them like the other Gentile nations. 
They chose Saul who was head and shoulders taller than other men in Israel to be their king.
The prophet Samuel anointed Saul with a vial of oil.
Vial is a picture of God’s judgment. You can see vials of judgment in the Book of Revelation. 
David, who was God’s choice to be king, was anointed with a horn of oil. 
A ram’s horn which is sounded represents proclaiming the death of our Lord. It is a picture of grace. 
Oil is usually poured on the head and it will flow down. 
Saul has a vial mentality - of judgment and the wrath of God - like God is angry. 
If you listen to a Saul-ish sermon, you’ll walk away feeling like God is angry with you. 
God providing Himself a king reminds us of Abraham saying to Isaac on Mount Moriah that God will provide Himself a lamb. 


“Now the LORD said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go; I am sending you to Jesse the Bethlehemite. For I have provided Myself a king among his sons.”” (I Samuel 16:1 NKJV)

When listening to a sermon, don’t look out for something to criticize. Just enjoy it. 
If you’re hungry, you’ll eat everything instead of caring about the arrangement. Don't be that person who looks for the speck of dirt on a clean whiteboard. 

I Samuel 9:3 - When we’re first introduced to Saul, he was busy chasing the fleshly things - wild donkeys. 


“Now the donkeys of Kish, Saul’s father, were lost. And Kish said to his son Saul, “Please take one of the servants with you, and arise, go and look for the donkeys.”” (I Samuel 9:3 NKJV)

I Samuel 16:11 - When we’re first introduced to David, he was tending the sheep.
If you’re called to preach, be faithful to the few that God has given to you now. Don’t complain as if it's beneath you and that you're meant to be preaching to thousands.
There are many John's and Mary's in the Bible, but only one David. This is because David presents many pictures of Jesus. 


“And Samuel said to Jesse, “Are all the young men here?” Then he said, “There remains yet the youngest, and there he is, keeping the sheep.” And Samuel said to Jesse, “Send and bring him. For we will not sit down till he comes here.”” (I Samuel16:11 NKJV)

I Samuel 17:28 - Eliab revealed his heart when he said “those few sheep”. 
If you are pastoring or a leader over a few believers, that’s still the Father’s flock.


“Now Eliab his oldest brother heard when he spoke to the men; and Eliab’s anger was aroused against David, and he said, “Why did you come down here? And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your pride and the insolence of your heart, for you have come down to see the battle.”” (I Samuel 17:28 NKJV)

I Samuel 17:34 - You are the Father’s sheep. It is the Father’s responsibility and not the pastor’s, to heal you. The Father will take care of His sheep. 

“But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father’s sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock,” (I Samuel 17:34 NKJV)

Your notes and sermons allowed me to find rest in Jesus. I was getting tired trying to perform what I thought God needed from me. 

You have made me realize it's 100% the CROSS and now I go constantly for Jesus but never get tired. 

Thanks for your wisdom and love for Jesus. May God bless you and your family!"

"Milton Goh my brother, your insight on Grace has set me free from 20 yrs of addiction. 

I was a 7 time felon but by the GRACE of God I am now an ordained minister.

God chooses faithful people to promote as leaders, and He is for you!

God does not choose leaders who are very good or talented. He chooses faithful people. God can always impart the gifts as the person continues to trust Him.

Moses was mighty and gifted in speech during the first forty years of his life and God couldn’t use him.
But when Moses met God at the burning bush, he said that he was slow of speech, and God could use him to part the Red Sea and bury all the enemies of Israel.
One is the ministry of the flesh and one is the ministry of the Spirit. 


"And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and deeds. “Now when he was forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brethren, the children of Israel. And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended and avenged him who was oppressed, and struck down the Egyptian." (Acts 7:22-24 NKJV) 

You can tell when a person is anointed by God. A non-believer singer or speaker will leave you feeling like “wow what a singer/speaker”.
A believer singer or speaker will leave you feeling like “wow what a God!”. 

I Samuel 14:52 - Saul was out looking for talented people to recruit.


“Now there was fierce war with the Philistines all the days of Saul. And when Saul saw any strong man or any valiant man, he took him for himself.” (I Samuel 14:52 NKJV)

I Samuel 22:1-2 - David recruited and welcomed all the broken people. These people became David’s mighty men later on. 
They were his '3D army' - distressed, in debt and discontented.


“David therefore departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam. So when his brothers and all his father’s house heard it, they went down there to him. And everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him. So he became captain over them. And there were about four hundred men with him.” (I Samuel 22:1-2 NKJV)

II Samuel 23:8-10 - It doesn’t matter even if your father’s name is Dodo. God can still use you mightily.
May your hand be stuck to the Bible too. 


“These are the names of the mighty men whom David had: Josheb-Basshebeth the Tachmonite, chief among the captains. He was called Adino the Eznite, because he had killed eight hundred men at one time. And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, one of the three mighty men with David when they defied the Philistines who were gathered there for battle, and the men of Israel had retreated. He arose and attacked the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand stuck to the sword. The LORD brought about a great victory that day; and the people returned after him only to plunder.” (II Samuel 23:8-10 NKJV)

II Samuel 23:20 - It’s extremely difficult to kill a lion. To make it more difficult, it was in a pit where he couldn’t escape. 
To add to the difficulty, it was on a snowy day! 


“Benaiah was the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man from Kabzeel, who had done many deeds. He had killed two lion-like heroes of Moab. He also had gone down and killed a lion in the midst of a pit on a snowy day.” (II Samuel 23:20 NKJV)

I Samuel 13:7 - In the presence of Saul, strong men became weak. In the presence of David, weak men became strong. 

“And some of the Hebrews crossed over the Jordan to the land of Gad and Gilead. As for Saul, he was still in Gilgal, and all the people followed him trembling.” (I Samuel13:7 NKJV)

Romans 8:31 - The word “who” is “tis” in Greek which is more frequently translated to "what" than "who" in the Bible. 
If God is for you, what can be against you? 
A situation is either going to turn around or God is working something together for your good.
Say: God is for me. 
Don’t judge others. Know for yourself that God is for you. 
It doesn’t mean that the devil won’t try to attack you, but he cannot succeed because God is for..

Outer Space and the Truth about Aliens from the Bible - The Second Expanse of the Heavens

This is an original devotional - It was written as an accompaniment to my eBook "The Four Expanses of the Heavens Revealed".
You can get my book individually, or through supporting our ministry by becoming our patron on Patreon.  


“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And the expanse [of heaven] is declaring the work of His hands.” (PSALM 19:1 AMP)

God’s creation is filled with lessons that we can learn about Jesus.
After all, God’s word says that everything was created through Him and for Him. 


“For by Him all things were created in heaven and on earth, [things] visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [that is, by His activity] and for Him.”(COLOSSIANS 1:16 AMP)

The celestial bodies in Outer Space are no exception to this principle. 

In the Solar System:
The Sun represents Jesus.
The Earth’s Moon represents us.
The Earth represents the world (both believers and non believers).
The stars represent God’s holy angels.
The other seven planets represent God’s other created beings. 


“God made the two great lights--the greater light (the sun) to rule the day, and the lesser light (the moon) to rule the night; He made the [galaxies of] stars also [that is, all the amazing wonders in the heavens]. God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to provide light upon the earth, to rule over the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good and He affirmed and sustained it.” (GENESIS 1:16-18 AMP)

Like the sun, Jesus is the Greater Ruler - He rules over all creation.
Like the moon, we (man) were created as the lesser rulers - Man was given the rulership of the earth. 

The moon ruling over the night represents us (man) whose rulership led to darkness because of Adam’s sin.
The sun ruling over the day represents Jesus whose rulership led to light because of Jesus’ everlasting victory at the cross which redeemed man and the whole earth to the glory of God. 

Just like the sun is the center of the Solar System, Jesus is the center of all creation. 
He is the Source of life just like the sun is the source of light in the Solar System.


“And He Himself existed and is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. [His is the controlling, cohesive force of the universe.] He is also the head [the life-source and leader] of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will occupy the first place [He will stand supreme and be preeminent] in everything.” (COLOSSIANS 1:17-18 AMP)

Like the moon which doesn’t give out light of its own but only reflects light from the sun, we too can’t do anything without the life of Jesus flowing in us.

“If even the moon does not shine, And the stars are not pure in His sight,” (Job 25:5NKJV)

“I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.” (JOHN 15:5 AMP)

God’s creation is filled with lessons that we can learn about Jesus. After all, God’s word says that everything was created through Him and for Him. The celestial bodies in Outer Space are no exception to this principle.

Like the moon, we reflect who we face


The moon revolves around the earth and also rotates on its own axis. 
This represents our Christian walk in life. It’s ever-changing, full of ups and downs. 


“There is a season (a time appointed) for everything and a time for every delight and event or purpose under heaven--” (ECCLESIASTES 3:1 AMP)

When the moon’s near side (the side that always faces earth) is facing the earth and the moon’s far side (the opposite of the near side) is facing the sun, the earth sees a new moon (darkness). 

When our backs are turned to Jesus and our eyes are focused on the world, we reflect darkness - the ugly worldliness which God hates.


““The eye is the lamp of the body; so if your eye is clear [spiritually perceptive], your whole body will be full of light [benefiting from God’s precepts]. But if your eye is bad [spiritually blind], your whole body will be full of darkness [devoid of God’s precepts]. So if the [very] light inside you [your inner self, your heart, your conscience] is darkness, how great and terrible is that darkness!” (MATTHEW6:22-23 AMP)

When the moon’s near side is facing the sun and the earth is between the Sun and the moon, the earth sees a full moon (light). 

When our eyes are focused on Jesus, we become the light of the world. 
We reflect Jesus’ glorious light and the world sees it and is lit up too. 
They experience the spillover benefits of Jesus’ glory upon us. 


““You are the light of [Christ to] the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good deeds and moral excellence, and [recognize and honor and] glorify your Father who is in heaven.” (MATTHEW 5:14-16 AMP)

The uncountable multitudes of stars in outer space represents the fact that angelic activity is taking place all the time around us, and the fact that there are so many angels under God’s command. 

“Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and [the voice] of the living creatures and the elders; and they numbered myriads of myriads, and thousands of thousands (innumerable), saying in a loud voice, “Worthy and deserving is the Lamb that was sacrificed to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.”” (REVELATION 5:11-12 AMP)

We are surrounded by these ministering spirits who obey and carry out God’s instructions.

“Are not all the angels ministering spirits sent out [by God] to serve (accompany, protect) those who will inherit salvation? [Of course they are!]” (HEBREWS 1:14AMP)

They are also watching the story of God’s salvation plan unfolding with each passing moment. 

The stars sing, just like how the angels are always singing the praises of God, declaring His glory. 


“When the morning stars sang together And all the sons of God (angels) shouted for joy?” (JOB 38:7 AMP)

The stars give off their own light too, representing the supernatural nature of the angels. 

There are other planets in the Solar System as well, besides earth. 
However God never sent His Son to dwell in any of them. 

This represents how man is favored over the other created beings. 
God sovereignly chose to pour out His love and grace upon man.


““What is man that You [should] magnify him [and think him important]? And that You are concerned about him?” (JOB 7:17 AMP)

He created us to be the object of His affection - the apple of His eye, the precious jewel of His heart. 

“Keep me [in Your affectionate care, protect me] as the apple of Your eye; Hide me in the [protective] shadow of Your wings” (PSALM 17:8 AMP)

The earth revolves around the sun, like how time moves the world along God’s roadmap as laid out in the Bible. 

Eventually the world will have to face God’s judgment. 
They will either be rewarded as believers and spend eternity with God, or be condemned as unbelievers and spend eternity in the lake of fire. 

As we walk in the world like the moon revolves around the earth, let us be a light to this world that desperately needs to see the glory of Jesus. 
May the light we reflect illuminate the way to salvation through Christ for the world.

"Hi Milton, just finished reading your book. Truly awe-inspiring! The Holy Spirit is all over this. I say this because I only ever listen to teachings from a few ministers, but I kept being drawn to this teaching.

After many distractions, I eventually got around to actually watching your video. I’m so glad I did.

It created a new hunger in me to dig deeper in the Word, but this time reading it through a different lens. Your book has definitely helped me understand this topic a lot better.

Thank you for sharing this revelation with us Milton Goh. May many more be blessed by your work as I have been. God Bless you abundantly!"

​The Truth about Alien Sightings

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12 NKJV)

Most people have heard about aliens and these creatures are accepted as part of popular culture nowadays. 

Even kids books and cartoons portray them as beings from outer space that we can become friends with. 

If we believers knew the truth about aliens and who they really are, we wouldn’t be exposing them to our kids and letting them think it’s okay. 

In the verse above, we see a hierarchy of demons: probably principalities being the highest and spiritual hosts of wickedness being the lowest. 

Notice that they are in the “heavenly places”? This doesn’t mean that they are in heaven. 

In fact, demons have no access to heaven today. 


“And she gave birth to a Son, a male Child, who is destined to rule (shepherd) all the nations with a rod of iron; and her Child was caught up to God and to His throne... And war broke out in heaven, Michael [the archangel] and his angels waging war with the dragon. The dragon and his angels fought, but they were not strong enough and did not prevail, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, the age-old serpent who is called the devil and Satan, he who continually deceives and seduces the entire inhabited world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom (dominion, reign) of our God, and the authority of His Christ have come; for the accuser of our [believing] brothers and sisters has been thrown down [at last], he who accuses them and keeps bringing charges [of sinful behavior] against them before our God day and night.” (REVELATION 12:5, 7-10 AMP)

The timeline of the passage above happening is after Jesus’ death, resurrection and ascension. 
The male Child being caught up to God represents Jesus’ ascension. 

The devil and his demons used to have access to a place in heaven because Adam’s rulership rights of the earth were given to Satan. 

We see in the Book of Job that Satan appeared before God in heaven and that was because as the new federal head of the earth, he had access to Adam’s spot:


“Now there was a day when the sons of God (angels) came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan (adversary, accuser) also came among them. The LORD said to Satan, “From where have you come?” Then Satan answered the LORD, “From roaming around on the earth and from walking around on it.”” (JOB1:6-7 AMP)

By dying on the cross, Jesus had already righteously paid for the sins of the world and had redeemed the whole earth back from Satan.

Satan and his demons tried to protest and fight to maintain their position in heaven but they were permanently evicted and thrown down. 

So now that we have established that demons have no access to heaven today, then what does the passage of the day mean by “heavenly places”? 

In the Greek, “heavenly places” is “epouraniois”. 
Besides meaning heaven, it can also refer to outer space. 
We see this in the following passage:


“There are also heavenly bodies [sun, moon and stars] and earthly bodies [humans, animals, and plants], but the glory and beauty of the heavenly is one kind, and the glory of the earthly is another. There is a glory and beauty of the sun, another glory of the moon, and yet another [distinctive] glory of the stars; and one star differs from another in glory and brilliance.” (1 CORINTHIANS 15:40-41 AMP)

The word “heavenly” (in other translations it says “celestial”) in Greek is also epouraniois and is used to describe the sun, moon and stars in outer space. 

Again we see the demons written to be in the epouraniois “heavenly places”: 


“and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ; to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places, according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.” (Ephesians 3:9-12NKJV)

When the Apostle Paul wrote this, it was already after Satan and his demons had been permanently cast out of heaven, so they don’t have access to there anymore. 

So I believe that today demons have access to both earth and the “heavenly places”: outer space.

So those strange apparitions in the night skies, unknown flying object (UFO) and alien sightings are probably real.

But they aren’t aliens, and they aren’t friendly. They are demons, and they hate humans. 

Maybe it’s wise to gradually reduce the interest that your child has in aliens by limiting exposure to such material - 
we don’t want them to try to make contact and end up experiencing demonic oppression or possession. ​


Outer Space is the second expanse of the heavens. 
There are many powerful revelations to be learnt from all the expanses of the heavens.

8 July 2018 - The Pillow and the Promise - Pastor Steven Furtick Sermon Notes - New Creation Church Guest Speaker

​Praise and Worship songs performed:
  1. Who You Say I Am - Hillsong Worship (words by Ben Fielding)
  2. Hope of Glory - New Creation Worship
  3. Stronger - New Creation Worship
  4. Wonderful (Grace Made Real) - New Creation Worship

Pastor Steven Furtick is the pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.

Genesis 28:10-19 - It's ironic that the passage says Jacob was in a certain place. Jacob has never been more uncertain in his life - he was running for his life. 
Sometimes God will make you stop moving forward so that you can recalibrate your direction.
God is above your situation.
God doesn’t just want to do something for you - He also wants to do something through you.
Jacob was sleeping on something and somewhere he wasn’t meant to be.
Some of you are in a place in your life that you didn’t intend to be. You are at your own “Luz”.
Jacob’s name means “tricky/deceiver”. But God called him something else (Israel).
God uses our weaknesses to unlock our purpose in life.
Jacob exchanged a bowl of stew for Esau’s firstborn blessing.
Sometimes like Esau, we give up what we want most for what we want now.
Jacob then tricked his father into giving him the firstborn blessing by pretending to be Esau by wearing hairy animal hide.
God can only bless you - God can’t bless what you pretend to be.
God won’t bless the false image or illusion that you put in front of others.
Jesus died for you, not for your selfie.
We live in a time where people want to appear being more happy than they really are.
Social media (like Instagram) is a “highlight reel”. It only shows the moments we want the world to see.
Sometimes we fight all the way to church on Sunday but the moment we step into church we smile and put on a perfect front for others to see.
Later on Jacob worked 7 years and was tricked to marry Leah (represents the Law) and then worked 7 more years to marry Rachel (grace), the one he truly loved.
We don’t work for love, we work from love.
God didn’t show up - Jacob woke up. God was always there with him. Jacob just didn’t realize it.
God is already busy working all things together for your good.
Jacob did not receive the greatest revelation while he was running or manipulating people and situations. He received it while he was sleeping (at rest).
In I Kings, Elijah thought that God would be in the earthquake, the wind, or in the fire. But God was not in them.
God was in the still, small voice. God whispers because He is close to you.
When you rejoice, out of your belly will flow rivers of living water.
God uses those uncertain and low places in your life to reveal His greatest glory.
Even in your rebellion, God is working for you anyway.
Jacob woke up from his dream and said it was awesome.
It’s not the stone (pillow) that was awesome - It was the purpose that God revealed that was awesome.
God will reveal His greatest glory in the hardest places of your life.
It is not about the place you’re in. It’s about the perspective you have about the place you’re in.
Point and anoint - Point at the hard place you’re in and anoint it as the gate of heaven -
This is the place. God will meet you right where you are.
The enemy wants to keep you occupied on a place called “there”, so that you miss out on the place called “here”.
God wants to use you here and now. You’re not too young to be useful to God.
There was nothing spectacular about the rock, it was the purpose that was revealed through the rock that was spectacular.
God is doing work inside of you. He is also working on your situation - even when the progress doesn’t seem to be obvious.
Angels are walking up and down going to work for you at God’s command.
If you pray for patience, God is probably going to send you people that make you crazy.
The things you prayed for may not show up in the prettiest packages.
Paul was afflicted by a “thorn in the flesh”, a messenger of Satan.
He prayed three times for God to take it away, before he realized that it was God’s plan to use that messenger of Satan, for his own good.
God is going to use what the devil uses for evil in your life, to turn it around for your good.
You don’t get to choose what you go through, but you get to choose what to call what you went through.
Rachel named her last son “Benoni” (Son of my sorrow) before dying due to childbirth.
Jacob renamed him “Benjamin” (Son of my right hand).
Our Heavenly Father can rename what we’re going through to fulfill His own purposes.
Jacob renamed “Luz” to “Bethel”. What if where you are now is right where you’re meant to be in this season of your life?
God will use the hard places to work things for your good.


“Now Jacob left Beersheba [never to see his mother again] and traveled toward Haran. And he came to a certain place and stayed overnight there because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones of the place, he put it under his head and lay down there [to sleep]. He dreamed that there was a ladder (stairway) placed on the earth, and the top of it reached [out of sight] toward heaven; and [he saw] the angels of God ascending and descending on it [going to and from heaven]. And behold, the LORD stood above and around him and said, “I am the LORD, the God of Abraham your [father’s] father and the God of Isaac; I will give to you and to your descendants the land [of promise] on which you are lying. Your descendants shall be as [countless as] the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west and the east and the north and the south; and all the families (nations) of the earth shall be blessed through you and your descendants. Behold, I am with you and will keep [careful watch over you and guard] you wherever you may go, and I will bring you back to this [promised] land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and he said, “Without any doubt the LORD is in this place, and I did not realize it.” So he was afraid and said, “How fearful and awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gateway to heaven.” So Jacob got up early in the morning, and took the stone he had put under his head and he set it up as a pillar [that is, a monument to the vision in his dream], and he poured [olive] oil on the top of it [to consecrate it]. He named that place Bethel (the house of God); the previous name of that city was Luz (Almond Tree).” (GENESIS 28:10-19 AMP)

Testimonial about Milton's writing:


"Milton Goh my brother, your insight on Grace has set me free from 20 yrs of addiction. 

I was a 7 time felon but by the GRACE of God I am now an ordained minister. 

Here is some of my story: I was saved in Dec 2016 and started evangelizing in July of 2017 as soon as I was released. 

My ministry has led over 800 to Jesus. I go to jails, rehabs, homeless shelters plus numerous churches! 

Your notes and sermons allowed me to find rest in Jesus. I was getting tired trying to perform what I thought God needed from me. 

You have made me realize it's 100% the CROSS and now I go constantly for Jesus but never get tired. 

Thanks for your wisdom and love for Jesus. May God bless you and your family!"

Testimonials:


"Hi Milton, just finished reading your book. Truly awe-inspiring! The Holy Spirit is all over this. I say this because I only ever listen to teachings from a few ministers, but I kept being drawn to this teaching.

After many distractions, I eventually got around to actually watching your video. I’m so glad I did.

It created a new hunger in me to dig deeper in the Word, but this time reading it through a different lens. Your book has definitely helped me understand this topic a lot better.

Thank you for sharing this revelation with us Milton Goh. May many more be blessed by your work as I have been. God Bless you abundantly!"

Sleep and save your strength - you'll need it on the other side

Mark 4:35-39 - The sequel to Jacob’s story. Jesus was sleeping through something He ‘wasn’t supposed’ to be sleeping through. 
Jesus said “Let us go over to the other side”.
The fact that Jesus told the disciples to get into the boat means that they will get to the other side and won’t die.
Since you’re going to get to the other side, you might as well praise the Lord while you’re in the middle. 
If God starts the fight, He will finish it.
There was a man that was so important to God that Jesus had to go to the other side to minister to.
You cannot die in the storm. You have an assignment on the other side. 
Save your strength and get some sleep while you’re in the storm. You’ll need it on the other side. 
That’s why Jesus didn’t say anything much on the cross. He was saving His strength for Sunday. 
Lay your head on God’s promises. He who began a good work in you is faithful to finish it.


“On that [same] day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us go over to the other side [of the Sea of Galilee].” So leaving the crowd, they took Him with them, just as He was, in the boat. And other boats were with Him. And a fierce windstorm began to blow, and waves were breaking over the boat, so that it was already being swamped. But Jesus was in the stern, asleep [with His head] on the [sailor’s leather] cushion. And they woke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are about to die?” And He got up and [sternly] rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Hush, be still (muzzled)!” And the wind died down [as if it had grown weary] and there was [at once] a great calm [a perfect peacefulness].” (MARK 4:35-39 AMP)

Pastor Steven Furtick prayed for God to quiet the storms in our lives and for God to use the hard places in our lives to bring about our good.

1 July 2018 - Speak to the Rock and Receive your Supply - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes - New Creation Church Sermon Notes

Praise and Worship songs performed:
(Please let me know if I missed out any song titles before this)
  1. No Longer Slaves - Bethel Music 
  2. Letting Go - New Creation Worship 
  3. There is Power in the Name of Jesus 

Your need cannot be greater than God’s supply. 
Sometimes God allows us to come into a place of need so that we can see what is in our heart. 
He is not the Source of it and He does not cause the lack, but He allows it to happen. 
It’s times of testing that reveals what’s in our heart.

Times of need also reveals what’s in His heart and we see all the supply that’s prepared for us. 

God never wanted the children of Israel to wander in the wilderness.
God never brings you out to leave you hanging on your own. 
God brings you out to bring you into somewhere else. 
He brings you out to bring you in! 

The promised land “flows” with milk and honey - it is a picture of abundance. 
“Milk” reminds us of a mother, providing milk for her child. The milk comes from mother grace. 
God has moved mountains - He not at Mount Sinai anymore, but Mount Zion.
Our mother is Sarah (Grace) not Hagar (the Law). 
“Honey” reminds us of cooperation - bees have work together to bring the pollen back to the hive to make honey. 
In the church, we are interdependent. 
The Christian life is not meant to be lived alone. 

If God has given you a revelation which others have not received yet, be kind to those who didn’t receive the revelation yet because God was kind to you. 
He could have given the revelation to that person instead of you. 

Sending the twelve spies was not Moses’ idea. It was the children of Israel’s own idea.
God had already said that the land flows with milk and honey.

Ten of the spies came back with a bad report, saying that there were giants and that they (Israel) were grasshoppers in their sight. 

Only Joshua and Caleb had a spirit of faith and encouraged the people to go up and take the land. 
In Hebrew, Joshua and Caleb said that the land is a “very very” good land. 
The Christian life is much better than the life in Egypt that we came out from.



Times of need reveals God's heart of grace and His abundant supply


I Corinthians 10:11 - The word “examples” in Greek is “tupos” which means types. 

“Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.” (I Corinthians 10:11NKJV)

We are near the Rapture and the Second Coming of Christ. 

What has been is going to happen again. This is written in Ecclesiastes.
The walls of Jericho falling and the Six Day War are parallels. 

Numbers 20:1-13 - What you say will happen to you. 
Joshua and Caleb believed that God would bring them in, so they were brought in. 
The rest of the children of Israel who didn’t believe that God could bring them in all died in the wilderness. 
Don’t let your children just watch their YouTube and Netflix without teaching them directly. 
Don’t let them be taught by Babylon while you’re the only one enjoying the milk and honey from the Lord. 
This passage occurs towards the end of the children of Israel’s wandering in the wilderness.
We are studying this end of their journey because we are the end-times of the end-times generation. 
Moses disobeyed God’s instructions - God said speak to the rock, not hit it. Yet Moses struck the rock twice.
Even though Moses disobeyed, the rock still yielded water because God loves the people. 
Some ministries don’t portray God the right way but there are still results because God loves the people.
The Rapture is coming really soon. We will feel so alive and look so good when it happens - No more worries! 
The rod spoken of in this verse is Aaron’s rod, not the rod that Moses always held in his hand. 
Moses’ rod is a rod of judgment. It turned into a snake before Pharaoh, it produced plagues in Egypt, and destroyed the Egyptian armies at the Red Sea. 
Aaron’s rod blossomed with almond flowers when they were choosing a high priest among the children of Israel. 
The rod is a dead thing, yet it blossomed with resurrection life - it is a picture of Jesus being resurrected from the dead. 
The rod of Aaron is a rod of priestly grace. A priest represents the people to God for the people’s good. A priest is good news. 
Jesus is our High Priest forever. We are engraved on His heart forever, never to be blotted out. 
We are like beautiful gems, and when we come closer to God, we will shine even more beautifully. 
The High Priest presents you holy, righteous, and favored before God. 
Are our sins once and for all put away? Yes, because Jesus was crucified once and for all. 
Jesus offered one sacrifice for sins forever and sat down at the right hand of God. 
Even though Moses did not represent God’s heart correctly before the people, God still hallowed Himself before the people. He will still show Himself as gracious. 


“Then the children of Israel, the whole congregation, came into the Wilderness of Zin in the first month, and the people stayed in Kadesh; and Miriam died there and was buried there. Now there was no water for the congregation; so they gathered together against Moses and Aaron. And the people contended with Moses and spoke, saying: “If only we had died when our brethren died before the LORD! Why have you brought up the assembly of the LORD into this wilderness, that we and our animals should die here? And why have you made us come up out of Egypt, to bring us to this evil place? It is not a place of grain or figs or vines or pomegranates; nor is there any water to drink.” So Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly to the door of the tabernacle of meeting, and they fell on their faces. And the glory of the LORD appeared to them. Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together. Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals.” So Moses took the rod from before the LORD as He commanded him. And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock; and he said to them, “Hear now, you rebels! Must we bring water for you out of this rock?” Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank. Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.” This was the water of Meribah, because the children of Israel contended with the LORD, and He was hallowed among them.” (Numbers 20:1-13NKJV)

One word from God can change your life. Your pastor can speak prophetically to you during a sermon and others may not know it - it’s a word just for you. 

I Corinthians 10:4 - The rock in Numbers 20 is Christ. 

“and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.” (I Corinthians 10:4 NKJV)

Hebrews 4:14 - We have a High Priest! 

“Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.” (Hebrews 4:14 NKJV)

Hebrews 8:1 - We have a High Priest! 

“Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,”(Hebrews 8:1 NKJV)

Hebrews 10:21-22 - We have a High Priest! 

“and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.” (Hebrews 10:21-22 NKJV)

Fame and fortune cannot give you lasting happiness or fill the emptiness you feel. 

What’s the worst thing that can happen? Don’t worry, you have a High Priest!


Exodus 17:5-6 - God said “your rod with which you struck the river” to let us know that it is a rod of judgment. 
Back in Egypt, Moses’ first miracle through the rod was to turn the waters of the River Nile into blood.
The rock here in Hebrew is “sur” which is a big rock.
In Numbers 20, the rock in Hebrew is “sela” which is a high cliff. Like the high cliffs at Petra in Jordan. 
The rock here represents Jesus on the cross, while the rock in Numbers 20 represents Jesus high and exalted in heaven. 
God said He would stand before Moses on the rock! Jesus wasn’t murdered, He laid down His life for us. 
All our sins were judicially punished in the body of Jesus at the cross, and now God is glorified by what Jesus did. 
God has received much more because of Jesus’ sacrifice - it was an overpayment. 


“And the LORD said to Moses, “Go on before the people, and take with you some of the elders of Israel. Also take in your hand your rod with which you struck the river, and go. Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.” And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.” (Exodus 17:5-6 NKJV)

"Milton Goh my brother, your insight on Grace has set me free from 20 yrs of addiction. 

I was a 7 time felon but by the GRACE of God I am now an ordained minister.

Your notes and sermons allowed me to find rest in Jesus. I was getting tired trying to perform what I thought God needed from me.

The correct way to present God as holy today is to show Him in His grace


To spoil your child is to kill your child. Discipline is necessary but don’t abuse your child. 
Cane your child only on the buttocks and don’t do it when you’re angry. 

God turned the worst act of mankind (Crucifying Jesus on the cross) and turned it into an emblem of His love for us. 

The cure for depression is to know that all your sins are forgiven. 
Stop punishing yourself and those around you. 
Jesus was punished for you. 

God wanted to be hallowed as the God of grace. He wants us to know the glory of the priesthood. 
Imagine how glorious it would have been if Moses had simply spoken to the rock with the rod of Aaron in his hand, and water gushed out.
The children of Israel would have seen that despite their complaining, God still provided water for them graciously. 
Everytime they see the rod of Aaron from then on, they would know that it’s good news. 

Instead Moses presented God as being angry with the children of Israel, which was not in sync with God’s heart towards them. 
Moses struck the rock twice with his own rod of judgment.
He spoiled the type - He made it seem like whenever people sin, Jesus has to come down again to die again for the sins. 

God said speak to the rock, and instead Moses spoke to the people.
Sometimes we only speak horizontally to the people around us and forget to speak to Jesus, our High Priest who can actually help us.

Moses and Aaron were punished for their actions and the people were vindicated. 
How does God want to be presented as holy today? 
To preach grace is the highest holiness - only grace can produce holiness and maintain holiness.
When you are under grace, sin shall not have dominion over you. 

It’s hard sometimes for pastors and leaders to put away the rod of judgment and use the rod of Aaron instead, because of habit.
Preach grace, if not you may not enter the very very good land - your promised blessings on earth. 

Deuteronomy 3:25-27 - The mountain that Moses wanted to see is Mount Hermon, where Jesus was transfigured much later on.


“I pray, let me cross over and see the good land beyond the Jordan, those pleasant mountains, and Lebanon.’ “But the LORD was angry with me on your account, and would not listen to me. So the LORD said to me: ‘Enough of that! Speak no more to Me of this matter. Go up to the top of Pisgah, and lift your eyes toward the west, the north, the south, and the east; behold it with your eyes, for you shall not cross over this Jordan.” (Deuteronomy 3:25-27 NKJV)

Psalm 106:32-33 - Moses called the children of Israel “rebels” when that was not what God called them. 

“They angered Him also at the waters of strife, So that it went ill with Moses on account of them; Because they rebelled against His Spirit, So that he spoke rashly with his lips.” (Psalms 106:32-33 NKJV)

Matthew 17:1-3 - Moses made it to Mount Hermon! 
God’s heart was so good, He brought Moses into the Promised Land not with the murmuring children of Israel, but with Jesus the Son of God! 


“Now after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him.” (Matthew 17:1-3 NKJV)

John did not write about the transfiguration. When people write autobiographies, they always show the best parts. 
But the Bible shows the heroes of faith with their imperfect, warts and all. 
The Bible is not about experience but about truth. 

Romans 8:33-34 - When your heart is feeling overwhelmed, speak to the Rock - Jesus. 


“Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.” (Romans 8:33-34 NKJV)

I just finished watching Season 2 of "13 Reasons Why"! This popular series on Netflix has successfully started the dialogue about sensitive issues like suicide, bullying, domestic violence etc. , but is talking about it really enough to stop those problems? 

Let’s take the solution one step further and see how God can help each character in the show to overcome their problems.
I hope that as you read this post, you will be able to relate to it and see that Jesus is the answer to all your problems! ​

Hannah Baker - The girl who committed suicide 


“The man of too many friends [chosen indiscriminately] will be broken in pieces and come to ruin, But there is a [true, loving] friend who [is reliable and] sticks closer than a brother.” (PROVERBS 18:24 AMP)

I believe that if Hannah had someone close who she could rely on and confide in, she wouldn’t have been pushed to the point of suicide.

God’s word shows us that Jesus is our true Friend who is reliable and sticks closer than a biological brother.
Jesus lives in us today through the Holy Spirit that indwells us the moment we place our faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior. 

When we place our faith in man, we will be disappointed, but when we trust in God, our faith will never be put to shame.

The Holy Spirit living inside us bears us up in our weaknesses, comforts us in our pains, reminds us of the rich blessings and inheritance we have in Jesus, and guides us with regards to all things in life. 
He’s the best and closest Friend you can possibly have! 



Clay Jensen - The one who keeps trying to take things into his own hands


“casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].” (1 PETER 5:7 AMP)

Clay is a character that has a strong sense of justice. The moral anger that he has towards the injustice of Hannah’s death causes him to burn-out while trying to fix everything by himself.

Clay needs to know that he can cast all his cares and worries to God, and that God can do much more than he possibly can. 

The moment Clay learns to let go and allow God to take over, he will see things shift effortlessly in his favor because God is a good God who upholds justice and honors the prayers of His believers.

​Olivia Baker - The heartbroken mother who's looking for closure

​“Blessed [gratefully praised and adored] be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts and encourages us in every trouble so that we will be able to comfort and encourage those who are in any kind of trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” (2 CORINTHIANS 1:3-4 AMP)

Mrs Baker is devastated by the loss of her daughter and her marriage eventually falls apart too.
She tries to win the court case hoping to find closure for her pain, but it doesn't work - in fact, the case hurt her even more when she discovers that her daughter is not who she thought she was - like a totally different girl.

But there is One who promises to never leave or forsake her if she believes in Him.

God is called the “God of all comfort”. He is able to strengthen her amidst her pain and beyond that, He can even restore her with more love and happiness than she’s ever had before. 

​Kevin Porter - The man under condemnation 

“Therefore there is now no condemnation [no guilty verdict, no punishment] for those who are in Christ Jesus [who believe in Him as personal Lord and Savior]. For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do [that is, overcome sin and remove its penalty, its power] being weakened by the flesh [man’s nature without the Holy Spirit], God did: He sent His own Son in the likeness of sinful man as an offering for sin. And He condemned sin in the flesh [subdued it and overcame it in the person of His own Son], so that the [righteous and just] requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us who do not live our lives in the ways of the flesh [guided by worldliness and our sinful nature], but [live our lives] in the ways of the Spirit [guided by His power].” (ROMANS 8:1-4 AMP)

Mr Porter needs to know that God has already forgiven him for his mistake. 
Yes he should learn from what he did wrong and in future pay closer attention to the students who come to him for help. 

However it’s unnecessary for him to have the attitude of needing to atone for his sins.
We are unable to earn forgiveness by our own works. It’s just never enough.

But there is One who paid for all our sins perfectly - His name is Jesus. 
He hung at the cross and the full judgment of God for all the sins of the world was poured upon Him there. 
Our sins are already perfectly paid for - We don’t have to have sin on our conscience anymore!

​Jessica Davis - The rape victim with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

“Instead of your [former] shame you will have a double portion; And instead of humiliation your people will shout for joy over their portion. Therefore in their land they will possess double [what they had forfeited]; Everlasting joy will be theirs.” (ISAIAH 61:7 AMP)

Jessica is the character in “13 Reasons Why” that I can relate to the most. 

In my teenage years, I was raped by a male senior from another school whom I trusted at my own birthday party while I was drunk. 

I remember walking home the next day limping because of the pain behind and carrying a whole, heavy stack of birthday presents. How ironic - what a 'memorable' birthday. 

That shameful experience really hurt me, leaving me with lots of self-condemnation and this is the first time I’m sharing about it publicly. Only my wife and parents knew before this. 

I want to encourage you that if like Jessica, you have been a victim of rape or sexual assault, Jesus is able to heal you of the trauma.

He is also going to restore you with double or more for all the pain and loss you’ve gone through because of that experience. 
Instead of shame and humiliation, you will enjoy double honor! 

Look, I went through that terrible experience and today I am a husband to a loving wife and I’m also a blessed father to my 2 year old daughter. 
Jesus has restored me and blessed me greatly, all glory to Him! 

Don’t be afraid to talk about what happened to you because it will release you from the trauma. 
The dark works of the enemy cannot survive long when you expose it to the light.
Your testimony of how you successfully walked out of the hurt will encourage someone else who has been through the same experience. 

Justin Foley - The drug addict ​


​“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, Because the LORD has anointed and commissioned me To bring good news to the humble and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the brokenhearted, To proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives And freedom to prisoners,” (ISAIAH 61:1 AMP)

No matter what addiction you are bound by, Jesus can free you from it. 
If Justin believed in Jesus, Jesus can break his drug addiction and restore him to be perfectly clean. 

Like Pastor Joseph Prince always teaches, in the midst of your sin, declare “I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus!”.

Knowing how sinful you are isn’t what breaks the addiction. 
In fact that will just make you sink deeper into it.

The power to break addiction comes when you know and believe how forgiven and righteous you are in Jesus. 

Righteousness is a gift that you receive from believing in Jesus - it cannot be earned. 
Once you know that your identity is a forgiven and righteous child of God, your addictions will just fall off like broken chains! 

I’m happy to openly share that in the past, Jesus delivered me from addiction to pornography and masturbation when I continually declared that I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. It’s really that simple. 

One day when the revelation of how righteous and forgiven I am sank into my heart, I no longer had the desire to watch porn or masturbate anymore. 
 
I am not ashamed to admit it because I want to encourage someone with my testimony that freedom can be yours too in Christ!

Alex Standall - The one who temporarily lost his memory, mobility and sexual faculties ​

​“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” (Romans 8:11 NKJV)

After Alex tried to commit suicide by shooting himself in the head with a gun, he survived but temporarily lost his memory, was crippled in one leg, and was unable to have an erection (oops). 

Well the resurrection power that raised Jesus from the dead is also available to anyone who believes in Jesus. 

If Alex prayed to Jesus or received prayer for healing, he could have been supernaturally healed and restored, without having to resort to unorthodox methods like watching live-porn shows online. 

If there’s something in your body that’s seemingly ‘dead’, the Holy Spirit can bring it back to life. 
Things that are impossible with man, are possible with God. 

​Tyler Down - The tragic bully victim ​

“Never repay anyone evil for evil. Take thought for what is right and gracious and proper in the sight of everyone. If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for God’s wrath [and His judicial righteousness]; for it is written [in Scripture], “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,” says the Lord. BUT IF YOUR ENEMY IS HUNGRY, FEED HIM; IF HE IS THIRSTY, GIVE HIM A DRINK; FOR BY DOING THIS YOU WILL HEAP BURNING COALS ON HIS HEAD.” Do not be overcome and conquered by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (ROMANS12:17-21 AMP)

That scene of Montgomery jamming a mop-stick forcefully into Tyler’s anus was really sad to watch. 

Tyler really suffered as a victim of bullying in school but it doesn’t justify his decision to do a machine gun shootout in school on prom night. 

Perhaps if he was a believer in Jesus, God would have protected him from bullying and given him the wisdom and favor to be well-liked by his peers. 

I know what it’s like to be bullied in school, to have false rumors spread about me, to enter a room and have people’s judging eyes on me. 
An example: There was fake news going around about me having sex with a fellow schoolmate and smoking cigarettes. 

At that time I wasn’t a faithful believer in Jesus yet, but the brokenness and loneliness that I felt because of the bullying drew me closer to Him. For that i’m so thankful. 

If you’re being bullied, there is no shame in speaking out about it. 
Tell an adult in a position of authority, don’t try to take matters into your own hands.

Leave room for God to exact vengeance on your behalf. 
God is a God of justice and those who do evil against you when you’re a child of God need to be careful, because the consequences of harming God’s precious child are serious. 

Your job is to obey His word and overcome evil with good. 
The true enemy is not the bully, but the devil working behind the scenes, who is stirring up all these negative sentiments towards you. 

The more the devil tries to hurt you, the more you should express and demonstrate the goodness of God - patience, forgiveness, love, etc. 
You will frustrate the devil and God will be so pleased to see you being faithful to His word.
​ 

​Bryce Walker - The rapist who was neglected by his parents 

“A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation.” (Psalms 68:5 NKJV)

In season one of 13 Reasons Why, you don’t really have any sympathy towards Bryce. He was just portrayed as a jerk and a complete villain. 

However in season two, we get to see a glimpse of why he turned out this way. 
I believe that while he was growing up, his parents neglected him and his extreme behavior are subconscious attempts to cry out for attention from his parents.

He may seem to have everything going for him - he’s born into a wealthy family and he gets to enjoy privileges that others don’t, but inside he’s a lonely child, feeling like an orphan. 

If Bryce knew Jesus as his Lord and Savior, he would know that he has a Heavenly Father who loves Him so deeply. 

A Father that he could talk to anytime, that he can call “Abba”, and enjoy close Father-son bonding time with. 
Perhaps that would have saved him from becoming a rapist. 


​Zachary Dempsey - The coward and people-pleaser

“The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.”(Proverbs 28:1 NKJV)

Zach is a coward who didn’t dare to admit to his relationship with Hannah because of her unpopular status in school. 

Despite knowing what Bryce did to her, Zach still pretended to be friends with him, hanging out with him in the “cool kids” clique. 

If Jesus was Zach’s Lord and Savior, Zach would not be so cowardly and bound by the compulsion to be a people-pleaser. 

If Zach was grounded in the truth that he is a righteous, favored son of God, he would have a holy boldness, living authentically knowing that God is on his side no matter what. ​

Tony Padilla - The short-tempered, violent adolescent​

​“Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.” (Galatians 5:19-23 NKJV)

Tony has a tendency towards outbursts of wrath and physically assaulting people when he’s in that state.

It could be due to the environment he grew up in, where the streets are dangerous and one would get taken advantage of if he wasn’t strong.

However if Tony believed in Jesus, he would be blessed with the grace to exercise self-control when feeling needlessly angry. 
The fruit of the Spirit would be produced in him as he walked closely according to God’s word. 

Montgomery de la Cruz - The bully and sidekick


“Depart from evil and do good; And you will dwell [securely in the land] forever.” (PSALM 37:27 AMP)

For all the evil deeds that Montgomery (Monty) did, I’m sure a terrible fate will befall him if there’s a season three. 
Maybe he will die in a fatal accident or be sentenced to jail. 

If Monty trusted in Jesus, he would not participate in any of Bryce’s wicked activities and would never have done those evil things. 

He would know that committing evil surely leads to his own destruction and death and would avoid it at all costs. 

Nina Jones - The two-timing girlfriend 

​“But He gives us more and more grace [through the power of the Holy Spirit to defy sin and live an obedient life that reflects both our faith and our gratitude for our salvation]. Therefore, it says, “GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD and HAUGHTY, BUT [continually] GIVES [the gift of] GRACE TO THE HUMBLE [who turn away from self-righteousness].” So submit to [the authority of] God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him] and he will flee from you. Come close to God [with a contrite heart] and He will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; and purify your [unfaithful] hearts, you double-minded [people].” (JAMES 4:6-8 AMP)

If Nina was a believer in Jesus, she would have had the grace to resist the temptation of the third party. 
There would be a righteous conviction in her heart telling her that it’s wrong to cheat on her boyfriend. 

When we are tempted, we need to submit to the authority of God and be determined not to give the devil any room to convince us to do wrong. 

When we are committed to do what’s right, God will honor our conviction with the grace to resist the temptation and the devil will flee from us. 

So as you can see, every character in the show could have overcome their problems if they had placed their faith in Jesus. 
And so can you - I just gave you 13 reasons why

The Four Expanses of the Heavens Revealed Part 1 - Where do Believers go when they die before the Rapture - Milton Goh Sermon

Have you ever experienced the loss of a loved one, or perhaps wondered where you will go when you depart to be with the Lord one day if the Rapture doesn't happen in your lifetime?  

The curious thing is that most people think the answer is "heaven" where God's throne, the Heavenly Father and Jesus are - God's word doesn't agree with this thinking!

Don't worry we are not going to hell/Sheol/Hades either. And by the way, Jesus did not descend to hell after His death on the cross.
So the big question is, "Where do believers go when they fall asleep in death before the Rapture?" 

In this sermon, you will receive a clear and fresh revelation about it, and the answer will cause your spirit to jump in joy because it's more familiar than you think!

I hope this revelation that I received from the Holy Spirit will greatly bless you today, in Jesus' name!

Testimonial about Milton's writing:


"Milton Goh my brother, your insight on Grace has set me free from 20 yrs of addiction. 

I was a 7 time felon but by the GRACE of God I am now an ordained minister.

My ministry has led over 800 to Jesus. I go to jails, rehabs, homeless shelters plus numerous churches! 

Your notes and sermons allowed me to find rest in Jesus. I was getting tired trying to perform what I thought God needed from me. 

You have made me realize it's 100% the CROSS and now I go constantly for Jesus but never get tired. 

Thanks for your wisdom and love for Jesus. May God bless you and your family!"

24 June 2018 - Jesus Draws Near when you are Discouraged (at Caesarea Maritima) - Pastor Joseph Prince Sermon Notes - New Creation Church Sermon Notes

Praise and Worship songs performed:
  1. This is Amazing Grace - Jeremy Riddle
  2. Reckless Love - Caleb Culver
  3. God You’re So Good - Passion
  4. King of my Heart - Bethel Music

Pastor Prince preached this sermon on 11 March 2018 live in Israel.

Paul preached the gospel from Caesarea Maritima westwards, to USA.
Israel is the center of the world.
And now, the gospel continues to be preached westwards, reaching Korea and China.
The path of the righteous shines brighter and brighter until the perfect day.
Finally the gospel will come one full circle and reach Jerusalem again.

The gospel is not about do good, get good, do bad, get bad.
The gospel is called the gospel of grace, or the gospel of peace.

Galatians 1:6-9 - A different gospel is any other gospel than the grace of Christ.
Paul pronounced a double curse on anyone who preaches any other gospel.
Whoever preaches the true gospel will be doubly blessed.


“I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:6-9 NKJV)

When God gave the Law on Mount Sinai on the first Pentecost for Israel, 3000 people died.
When God gave the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, 3000 were saved.
The Law kills, while Grace gives life.

Romans 6:14 - The Law shows a reflection of sin, not of righteousness. It is a holy mirror that shows you as you are.
The devil has put fences around grace and we need to rediscover the gospel that Paul preached.
The Law is about do, Grace is about done.
There is only one thing left do under Grace: rest in what Jesus has done.
Under the Old Testament, the priests must not gird themselves with anything that causes them to sweat - we need to rest in God.
We pray from victory, not for victory.


“For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” (Romans 6:14 NKJV)

A bruised reed that has lost its purpose and song will usually be thrown away. But Jesus doesn’t throw you away when you have lost your song or praise. A smoking flax produces a stench and is burning out. Even if you are burnt out and discouraged, Jesus doesn’t destroy you.

Jesus cares for the discouraged and dejected


Matthew 12:20 - Of all the things that the prophet Isaiah prophesied, this was quoted about Jesus.
Reeds are common in Israel. A bruised reed that has lost its purpose and song will usually be thrown away.
But Jesus doesn’t throw you away when you have lost your song or praise.
A smoking flax produces a stench and is burning out. 
Even if you are burnt out and discouraged, Jesus doesn’t destroy you. 


“A bruised reed He will not break, And smoking flax He will not quench, Till He sends forth justice to victory;” (Matthew 12:20 NKJV)

Elijah the prophet who called fire down from heaven fled when Jezebel threatened to kill him. Elijah was in a dejected and discouraged season of his life.
Elijah prayed for God to let him die but Elijah never died, and till today he has never died.
God caught him up to heaven. Pastor Prince believes that Elijah will come back with Moses as one of the two Witnesses in Book of Revelation during the end times. 

In the day of his faith, ravens fed Elijah. In the day of his discouragement, angels fed Elijah - Jesus Himself fed Elijah. 

Luke 24:15 - When there is a wayward apostle/saint, Jesus doesn’t send an angel. 
He comes to minister to them Himself. 


“So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them.” (Luke 24:15 NKJV)

Psalm 147:3-5 - The same God who can count the number of stars, is the same One who heals our broken hearts and binds up our wounds. 
Even in laughter, a heart can be sorrowful. The world watches shows on TV all the time and they are laughing but their hearts are actually broken. 


“He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.” (Psalms 147:3-5 NKJV)

Jesus went to Simon the Pharisee’s house. Simon did not treat Jesus well, but the woman poured out her love upon Jesus.
He who is forgiven much, loves much. 
We need to tell people that their sins are forgiven past, present and future! 
What a relief when you live a life that's no longer self-occupied but Christ-occupied. 

In and of yourself you will still fail. You need to know that you’re forgiven. 
You don’t need to keep confessing your sins, you just need to raise and hands and say “Thank You Lord that I am forgiven” and continue with your life.

The Bible calls Jesus a King. 
Both His earthly father Joseph and mother Mary have lineages linking back to royalty. 
Jesus has a double claim to the throne!


At the Mount of Beatitudes after Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount to the multitudes, Jesus went down the mountain.
He didn’t go towards the multitudes but He went the other direction towards the leper because the Bible says that the multitudes followed Him.
The leper was definitely not among the multitudes if not he would have been stoned.

Testimonial about Milton's writing:


"Milton Goh my brother, your insight on Grace has set me free from 20 yrs of addiction. 

I was a 7 time felon but by the GRACE of God I am now an ordained minister. 

Here is some of my story: I was saved in Dec 2016 and started evangelizing in July of 2017 as soon as I was released. 

My ministry has led over 800 to Jesus. I go to jails, rehabs, homeless shelters plus numerous churches! 

Your notes and sermons allowed me to find rest in Jesus. I was getting tired trying to perform what I thought God needed from me. 

You have made me realize it's 100% the CROSS and now I go constantly for Jesus but never get tired. 

Thanks for your wisdom and love for Jesus. May God bless you and your family!"

To the theologian Nicodemus, Jesus never revealed Himself as the Messiah. But to the woman, Jesus revealed Himself as the Messiah, saying “I am He”.

The power of knowing God's love for you


Jesus is altogether lovely. When He is strong He is not hurtful. When He is soft He is not weak. We desire to be like Him.

The shortest verse in the Bible is “Jesus wept”. Jesus came to enter into our sorrows. 
It is a wonderful thing to see our Savior weeping for sinners. 


John 4:4-5 - Jesus took the longer way to go through Samaria. 
There is a prophecy about Jesus being a fruitful bough whose branches reach over the wall.
Jesus would reach the well, and go over the wall of partition (between Israel and Samaria). 
The people who fight for the Law often cannot even memorize the Law.
The Holy Spirit doesn’t help you to memorize the Law. 
In John 3, Nicodemus (a theologian) came seeking Jesus by night. 
In John 4, Jesus came to the woman by day. 
In John 3, Jesus talked to Nicodemus by types and symbols - language of the Scriptures, hidden and unexplained.
In John 4, Jesus spoke to the woman plainly, not quoting any Scriptures. 


“But He needed to go through Samaria. So He came to a city of Samaria which is called Sychar, near the plot of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.” (John 4:4-5 NKJV)

John 4:9-26 - During the woman’s time, the high priest at that time was called Jonathan (which means “Gift of God”. He was the 49th high priest.)
Jesus is the 50th High Priest. The number of Jubilee.
Jesus said to the woman “If you knew the gift of God...” 
When someone who knows everything about you still wants to talk to you, you know that you are loved! 
Hypocrisy is when you are a believer and call yourself a hypocrite. God has already justified you and forgiven you of all your sins! 
Look in the mirror and say “I am the righteousness of God in Christ”. 
The woman of Samaria first called Jesus a Jew, then sir, then prophet, and finally Lord.
To the theologian Nicodemus, Jesus never revealed Himself as the Messiah. But to the woman, Jesus revealed Himself as the Messiah, saying “I am He”.
The woman came to the well at midday, the hottest time of the day when no one goes to draw water from the water, because of her bad reputation. 
At the end of the chapter, after an encounter with Jesus, the woman became a bold evangelist, telling everyone about Jesus. She was no longer self-occupied, but Christ-occupied. 


“Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?” Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.” Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.” The woman answered and said, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You have well said, ‘I have no husband,’ for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.” The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.” Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.” Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He. ”” (John 4:9-26 NKJV)

I John 4:10 - New Testament preaching should leave you with love, faith and hope in your heart.
Love is not you loving God, but God loving you. 


"In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins." (I John 4:10 NKJV)

Abraham had two sons: Ishmael and Isaac. 
But God said “take your only son, the son whom you love” to be sacrificed on Mount Moriah. 
God was thinking of His only Son Jesus. 
God did not withhold His only Son, so we know that He loves us. 
The highest elevation of Mount Moriah is Mount Calvary - Abraham saw Jesus on the cross there.
When confronted by the Pharisees, Jesus said that Abraham saw Jesus. On Mount Moriah, Abraham turned back and saw Jesus on the cross.


Mount Hermon is the highest peak in Israel and the River Jordan near the Dead Sea is the lowest place in Israel.
In both the highest and lowest place, God affirmed Jesus as His beloved Son in whom He is well-pleased.
We need to affirm our children in both the highest and lowest points of their lives.

When Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, he left out the word “beloved”. He only said “if you are the son of God”. 
The devil’s temptations have no power over you when you know that you are God’s beloved! 


When Elijah called fire down from heaven, the fire consumed all the water and the twelve stones. 
Under the Law, the judgment is greater than the sacrifice.
But when Jesus hung at the cross, and the fire of God came upon Him for all our sins, Jesus absorbed it all and said “It is finished”. 
This time the Sacrifice is greater than the judgment! 

There is a God-shaped vacuum in your heart that only Jesus can fill. No hedonistic pleasure in life can fill that emptiness.

Why we love Pororo Park Singapore 

(Disclaimer: I received a sponsored Silver membership at Pororo Park Singapore, but  I wrote this blog post of my own accord - it wasn't part of the terms of sponsorship. All opinions written in this post are honest and my own. This post also contains affiliate links so I may make some commission if you purchase products through my links.)  

You may be wondering, why bring my little one to an indoor playground when I can just go to an outdoor playground for free?

Well in my opinion, the only obvious benefit of those free outdoor playgrounds is that it is free.

However there are many good benefits that your little ones are missing out on when you only bring them to outdoor playgrounds and not indoor playgrounds.

After trying many indoor playgrounds in Singapore, Amilee and I still prefer to bring our 2 year old daughter Maeleth to Pororo Park Singapore in Marina Square.

This is the full address: 
6 Raffles Blvd, 02-29, Singapore 039594. You can visit their official website here

Being a super fan of the Pororo animated series by Iconix, Mae regularly requests to go back to Pororo Park, and there are many great reasons to bring her there.
Maeleth is a true Pororo fan! She loves watching the Pororo animated series, playing with Pororo toys, and wearing Pororo-inspired clothing!
Even Mae's bedsheet, bolstercase and pillowcase are Pororo-inspired!

​Themed Experience

At Pororo Park Singapore, your little one will be treated to a Pororo-themed experience and be delighted to see his or her familiar and favorite characters and locations in the indoor playground! 

Your child will enjoy his or her time there much more in contrast to just playing at an outdoor playground with no recognizable characters. 

Your little ones will be so happy to see the characters that they love from the cartoon! Image Credits: NTUC

Fun 

Our favorite feature of Pororo Park Singapore is the Pororo train ride! 
Your little one can sit in a carriage and take a short trip around a snowy mountainous landscape. 

Along the way, at every turn, he or she will see life-sized models of the adorable characters from the Pororo animated series. 

Mae can ride the train repeatedly and not get bored. 
It’s also safe because the kids are strapped in place by a seat belt, and there are two staff - one in front and one behind - following the train as it makes its way around the course. 

Mae loves the train ride!

Seems that Pororo Park Singapore is our preferred playdate location! Here Mae is introducing the fun of the train ride to @cheeksymeeksy (on Instagram).

Holistic Learning 

Fellow parents, besides the obvious playing to burn off the abundant energy of our kids, there are also various activities at Pororo Park Singapore that you can never find at free outdoor playgrounds. 

Firstly, there are daily live performance shows in the indoor playground in “Tong Tong’s Little Theater”.
The kids get to enjoy storytelling and dancing to tunes from the cartoon with their favorite mascots from Pororo. 
The audience participation segments also make the shows more engaging and immersive for the children! 

Pororo Park Singapore also holds different seasonal workshops for kids to learn different forms of Arts and Crafts.

During Halloween season last year, they had a trick or treat bag decoration workshop.

During Christmas season last year, they had a gift exchange program. 

Recently when we visited the indoor playground, we brought Mae for a Ice Cream Workshop there where she was able to participate in the process of making her own strawberry ice cream. 
She chose her own ingredient, chopped up her strawberries, and personalized her own toppings. It was fun and delicious!

Mae enjoyed the ice cream she customised during the ice cream workshop that was held at Pororo Park Singapore! She chose strawberry as the main ingredient and added cornflakes as a topping!

Comfort

Rather than possibly sitting on a bench under the hot sun, perspiring, with no food or drinks around, wouldn’t it be better to chill at a cafe while your little one plays? 

This is more applicable for parents with older kids. I would never leave Mae alone to play while I relax at a cafe. It’s too risky at her age. 

At “Loopy’s Cafe” in the indoor playground, you can order food and drinks, while seated comfortably in an air-conditioned environment. 
It’s a great place to have your meal or feed your little one. 

Loopy's Cafe is a comfortable place to enjoy food and drinks. You can also feed your little one there. Our friend took a photo of Mae and I playing with my phone while waiting for our meal to arrive!

Enjoy Curated Desserts 

If you and your little one both have a sweet tooth, you will love the pretty Pororo-themed desserts made by “Little House of Dreams” bakery in the indoor playground. 

Whether it’s to celebrate a special occasion or just to satisfy a sweet craving, you’re bound to find a treat that does exactly that! 

Check out some of the beautiful selections available:

Look at that expression! Seems that Mae really loves the Loopy layered cake pop!

Minimize risk of sun-related problems 

Playing at a free outdoor playground can be harmful because of the prolonged sun exposure. 

If you and your child don’t apply sunblock, the UV rays will cause skin damage, which includes skin diseases and premature aging.

On a really hot day, dehydration can set in quickly too after lots of running around and playing, and even lead to more serious issues like heat stroke.

For young children, it’s best to keep them cool and comfortable while they play.

Pororo Park Singapore is fully air-conditioned. It’s a cozy playing environment where they can play wildly and not be subjected to sun damage. 


Designated play areas for different age groups

This is something that free outdoor playgrounds try to incorporate by having a signboard but the rules are almost never followed, and they are never enforced. 

Sometimes we see teenagers, adults and older kids hanging out or playing in areas meant for babies and toddlers. 

If you are in the mood, you may try to politely ask them to leave, but if they refuse, who else is going to make sure that they follow the playground rules? 

Won’t it be worse if it turns into an argument and unnecessary unpleasant confrontation? That’s not good for your child to witness. 

At Pororo Park Singapore, there is a babies play area and areas for older kids. 
If someone is breaking the playground rules, you can just inform a staff member, and let them handle the enforcement. Isn’t that much more relaxing and assuring? 

We find it so dangerous when older kids are running around crazily in the outdoor playgrounds when Mae is playing there.

There is never a moment of peace because we need to flank her and protect her from being trampled on by them. 
Yes it’s free to play there but there’s no peace of mind. 


Safety 

One thing about free outdoor playgrounds is that there is no security. 
If you don’t watch your child vigilantly like a hawk, a stranger can easily kidnap your little one when you least expect it.

If the assailant runs away while carrying your child and covering his or her mouth which makes screaming impossible, it will be hard to track them down, especially if some time has passed. 

At Pororo Park, all guests have to register before entering the indoor playground, and you can’t just leave silently. 

There is a magnetically-controlled gate that only the counter staff can operate. 
If a kidnapper is trying to grab your child away, don’t you think the staff will be able to see the child’s signs of distress and stand a higher chance of saving him or her from the evil person? 

Besides that, there are surveillance cameras in the indoor playground to help you identify the kidnapper if (touch wood) it really happens. 
At least with the knowledge of who took the child, you can be empowered to do something about it. 

Cleanliness

I don’t know how often free outdoor playgrounds are cleaned. I have seen playgrounds near where we stay that have all sorts of food junk thrown all over. 

Once I saw a melted chocolate puddle with insect swarms eating it. 
It was gross and definitely not a place for children to play safely. 

Outdoor playgrounds are exposed to the elements - rain, smoke, animal feces, dust, and even rubbish apparently.
Are you sure you want your child to constantly play in a dirty environment like that which is filled with germs? 

At least in an indoor playground like Pororo Park Singapore, they state how often they clean their toys and equipments. 
It’s so important to keep them clean so that it minimizes the risk of children falling sick. 

For example, if a child who is sick plays with a toy and his or her mucus comes into contact with it, the next child who plays with that same toy may catch the sickness. 
Regular cleaning lowers the chances of this kind of scenario from happening. 

Openness to Feedback 

Once I posted on my Instagram account about how I was disappointed in the sandwiches sold at Loopy’s Cafe in the indoor playground because they did not live up to the standard as set by the animated series.

Loopy’s sandwiches are supposed to be her signature dish and must taste heavenly. 
At least that’s what the characters in the show portray it to be. 

The team at Pororo Park Singapore did not try to defend themselves or make excuses, but unbeknownst to me, they took my suggestion and are in the process of innovating a new sandwich dish inspired by Loopy’s Sandwiches that is as accurate as possible to the show’s. It should even look the same! 

It’s a sign of humility and wisdom when someone is willing to take constructive criticism so graciously. 

I really appreciate the team at Pororo Park Singapore for that and know that if they continue to be open to implementing good customer feedback for improvements, they will grow from strength to strength. 

I believe that at Pororo Park Singapore, you can rest assured that your voice matters and your feedback is heard. 

@maelethsarah loves everything from the show “Pororo the Little Penguin” so naturally she enjoys going to Pororo Park in Singapore! However as I also watch the shows together with Mae, I was slightly disappointed that the sandwiches sold at Loopy’s Cafe inside the indoor playground didn’t look like the ones Loopy makes in the show. The sandwiches also don’t taste great - the bread is too powdery (because of the flour on top of the bread) and that makes the sandwich taste very bland as a whole. I feel that such a signature dish that all the characters praise so highly in the show should be done to perfection so as to live up to the show’s standards! For example, how Butterbeer sold at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is delicious so many people have a memorable experience at the theme park and post raving reviews about it on social media. □ • Another thing that could be improved is that the interior of Pororo house at Pororo Park doesn’t look like Pororo’s house in the show. Kids and adults who love the show will recognize instantly that the layout and objects are not accurate. Hopefully these suggestions for improvement can be implemented so as to create a better visitor experience for fans of the show! □ • On a positive note, the train ride in Pororo Park is simply wonderful! Mae loves riding it and can go repeatedly without getting bored! That is definitely one huge plus point that sets this indoor playground apart! □ • • • • • #pororo #pororopark #pororoparksg #maeleth #maelethsarah #sgparents #sgparent #sgmum #sgmums #sgmom #sgmummy #sgbaby #sgtoddler #sgkid #sgkids #our_everyday_moments #rememberingthesedays #cutekidsofinstagram #capturingtheday #capturingchildhood #kidswillbekids #instakids #instatoddler #cuteangels #cutekids #capturingchildhood #dontforgetdads #loopy #themagicineveryday #miltongohblog

Able to continue the learning-through-play at home

Pororo Park Singapore has an awesome store that sells official Pororo toys and merchandise. 

Our favorite toy sold there has to be the “Little Future Book Pororo Pen”. It’s a fun and education reading pen toy! 
Mae was so excited to open and set up her "Little Future Book Pororo Pen"!

Following the storyline of finding Crong the little dinosaur, Pororo and his friends look all over the place for him and in the process your child can learn lots of useful everyday vocabulary as he or she searches for Crong. That's the first book.

In the second book, Pororo goes to kindergarten and the reader gets to accompany Pororo in class and learn many new words, how to count, tell the time, and more! 

It’s so fun that I am even playing the toy myself - am I weird? Haha! 

Check out the video review we made of the "Little Future Book Pororo Pen (English)" in action below:
Little Future Book Pororo Pen Review and Product Demonstration - YouTube

​For the English-speaking version of this toy as seen in our video, you can purchase it at Pororo Park Singapore. 

If you prefer the Korean-speaking version of this toy, you can purchase it at the link below:

​I believe that we learn best when we are enjoying ourselves so if your little one loves Pororo, he or she will probably learn well when playing with this toy! 

We also like the Pororo and friends bath toys that we use to keep Mae distracted while we are showering her.
Isn’t it so much easier to bathe your child when he or she isn’t moving here and there in the shower? 
Keep a Pororo lover in the same spot by giving him or her the bath toys only during shower time! 
​​
The Pororo bath toys can even double up as birthday cake toppers which is exactly what we did for Mae's 2nd birthday, haha!

Enjoy Savings through Membership programs

If your little one loves Pororo like Mae does, then Pororo Park Singapore is probably the best indoor playground for him or her to visit regularly. 

If you’re planning to bring your child to indoor playgrounds quite often, why not invest in a membership at Pororo Park Singapore? 
You actually save more money this way in the long term! 

You can enjoy many perks like free admissions, unlimited playtime, vouchers, discounted birthday party package, discounted merchandise, free hot Americano/tea on weekdays, and more! 

There are different membership levels: 3 Months, Annual, Silver and Gold.
You can choose the most suitable one for you and your little one. 
Kindly  refer to the table at this link for the benefits you enjoy from each membership level.

Click here for the Pororo Park Singapore admission rates. 

We have the Silver Membership and think that it’s probably enough to cover one year of Mae’s visits to Pororo Park Singapore!

17 June 2018 - The Power in Knowing God as your Father - Pastor Lawrence Lim Sermon Notes - New Creation Church Sermon Notes

Praise and Worship songs performed:
(I missed out songs before this)
  1. Your Saving Grace - New Creation Worship
  2. Build My Life - Brett Younker
  3. You Are The Reason - Calum Scott
  4. You’re a Good Good Father - Chris Tomlin

Last year in September 2017, the Lord spoke to Pastor Joseph Prince to pray for the salvation of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un.
At that time relations between USA and North Korea were very tense. But praise Jesus that just a few days ago, Singapore hosted the Trump-Kim Summit.
In just less than a year, relations turned around for good. It’s like a heavenly wink from God.

President Donald Trump called Singapore a country of profound grace and beauty. Of all the words he could have said, he said “grace”.
A word that we in New Creation Church are so familiar with.

Prayer changes everything. You can pray and things will turn around for your good.

Just coming to service on Sunday is not enough - We need to be in constant contact with God’s word throughout the week.
We also need to be constantly connected through kingdom friendships.

John 17:6 - The prayer in John 17 is the longest prayer by Jesus recorded in the Bible.
It is called the High Priestly Prayer because He was interceding for us to God.
Jesus looked into the future and was interceding for us who would believe in Him.
Jesus came to reveal a name of God that was not commonly known to the people.
There are many names of God: Elohim (Creator God - it’s a plural name which points to the triune nature of God), Yahweh (Covenant-keeping God), El-Shaddai (Almighty God), and more.
Jesus came to reveal the name “Father” (Abba).
The name of God as Father was revealed in the Old Testament but it was not commonly used.
Examples of places in the Old Testament where God is referred to as Father: Psalm 103 and Isaiah 9.


““I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.” (John 17:6 NKJV)

“As a father pities his children, So the LORD pities those who fear Him.” (Psalms 103:13 NKJV)

“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6 NKJV)

John 17:11-12 - When you know God as Father, there is a protective power made available for you.
If you call God “Creator”, you will feel distant from Him.
If you call God “Father”, you will feel close and there is an intimacy.
Fear is irrational. When we feel fearful, we can run to our Heavenly Father Who is completely fearless.


“Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.” (John 17:11-12 NKJV)

Psalm 91 is saying that the protection we yearn for is found when we are near to God.
We are so close to God - we are in the shadow of the Almighty.


When you know God as Father, there is a protective power made available for you. If you call God “Creator”, you will feel distant from Him. If you call God “Father”, you will feel close and there is an intimacy.

Receive God's supply when you know Him as your Abba Father


John 17:25-26 - If you want to keep yourself in the love of God, you need to relate to God as your Father. 

“O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”” (John 17:25-26 NKJV)

At the cross, Jesus addressed God as “My God, My God” so that we can call God “My Father, My Father”.

Jesus was baptized in the River Jordan - the lowest point of Israel. It speaks of the lowest point in your life. 
John the Baptist said that he is not worthy to even loose the sandal straps of Jesus -
Jesus didn’t need to be baptized but He submitted to the will of the Father. 

When Jesus was baptized, a voice came from heaven and said “This is my beloved Son in Whom I am well-pleased”. 
Your children need to hear this from you. Don’t wait until they perform well. Love them and they will want to perform. 

We are as righteous as God today. We have the same righteousness that Jesus has. 
God loves us as much as He loves Jesus. Every morning, remind yourself: “Abba You are well-pleased with me”. 

The devil doesn’t play fair. He knows that if you know the truth, it will set you free. 

Matthew 7:7-11 - If you know God as Father, you will be able to receive His supply and provision. 
Even we who are evil give good things to our children because we love them. 
Our Abba Father is definitely much more willing to give good things to us who ask Him.
Who walked on water with Jesus? Peter - the one who asked Jesus.


““Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” (Matthew 7:7-11 NKJV)

Luke 12:32 - Your Heavenly Father is happy to give to you because He loves it when you’re happy. 
He does not give reluctantly and neither is He lacking. It is easy for Him to give. 
He owns the cattle of a thousand hills. 


““Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” (Luke 12:32 NKJV)

Matthew 6:7-9 - Just because you keep repeating your prayers robotically, doesn’t mean that God hears your prayers better. 
After praying about something you’re believing for, there must be a point where you’re settled in your heart that God has heard and answered your request.
When you reach that point, thank Him for it in advance. 
Even though God knows what we want and need, we still ask God because of our relationship with Him. 
We play with our children because we are parent and child. 
We want to spend time together with our children. 
Similarly, God wants to spend time with us. He has a yearning for us. 


“And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. “Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.” (Matthew 6:7-9 NKJV)

Song of Solomon 7:10 - When you go on a long work trip, doesn’t your heart yearn for your family?
That ‘lovesick’ feeling, God feels it towards us too.
Live life knowing that God’s love and desire is towards you. 


“I am my beloved’s, And his desire is toward me.” (Song of Solomon 7:10 NKJV)

We can call God "Abba"


The Old Testament is originally written in Hebrew and the New Testament is originally written in Greek.
There is an untranslated Aramaic word in the New Testament that occurs three times - that word is “Abba”.

In Mandarin, there are different words for Father: 父亲 (formal), 爸爸 (casual term of endearment).

In English there are also different words for Father: Father (formal), daddy/papa (casual term of endearment).

Mark 14:36 - In this critical moment, Jesus called God “Abba”.
In a moment of crisis in your life, call God “Abba”. 


“And He said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for You. Take this cup away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will, but what You will. ”” (Mark 14:36 NKJV)

Romans 8:15-16 - We are adopted children of God. We can call God “Abba”. 

“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,” (Romans 8:15-16 NKJV)

Galatians 4:4-7 - we are no longer slaves, but are now sons of God!

“But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.” (Galatians 4:4-7 NKJV)

In the Apostle Paul’s epistles Romans, I Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, He makes sure that the churches he writes to knows that God is their Father.

If you sin, God will discipline you not through sicknesses, but through His word. Just like how the Apostle Paul chastised the Corinthian church through his epistle.
Once a son, always a son. You will never be disowned by God.


Luke 15:16-24 - How does the Father treat us when we sin?
The father saw the prodigal son a long way off because he scanned the horizon everyday hoping that his son would return.
When we fail, God has compassion on us, hugs us and kisses us.
When you fail, you are still a son. 
They had a great party to celebrate the son's return. 


“And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything. “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.” ’ “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.” (Luke 15:16-24 NKJV)

I John 2:15-16 - You are empowered to not love the world when you know the Father’s love for you.
The only thing that can satisfy the vacuum in your heart is the Father’s love. 


“Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.” (I John 2:15-16 NKJV)

We have a Heavenly Abba who loves us. We yearn for His love.

Closing Prayer:
Pastor Lawrence Lim prayed a special prayer for all dads to receive wisdom from the Lord - to be able to raise their children well in God's ways, and for their words to have weight and authority to their children.
Pastor Lawrence then prayed the Aaronic priestly prayer for the whole congregation.  

We are adopted children of God. We can call God “Abba”. We are no longer slaves, but sons of God!
