Amos

Some TIPS on How to Read the Book of Amos The book of Amos has 9 chapters. Short enough to cover a few rounds in 30 days Amos 1-2 Judgments on the Nations Amos 3-6 Messages against Israel Amos 7-9:10 Five visions Amos 9:11-15 Israel’s Restoration It would be helpful to write down what stayed with you. Use different symbols or color pencils / pens to highlight repetitious words/ phrases and names of God/pronoun. There are many categories to be found. Take note of the nations. What are God’s charges against them? It is good to refer to a biblical map during the time of the Divided Kingdom. As you pay attention to the details, your reading experience and comprehension will surely be enhanced. As you ponder on the outward religiousity and injustices all around us with the understanding of our Sovereign LORD / the LORD GOD Almighty in Amos is, remember those in power and position (within/out of the church) - the rich and the poor, the strong and the weak, the church-goers, including you and me. He may lead us to search our heart, to repent, to intercede, to revere and worship Him. The book of Amos, the prophet Amos in the first 3 chapters started off with the accusation of sin & judgment against the nation surrounding Israel (enemies to ‘cousins’ of Israel) and ended with Judah and Israel themselves. A look further into v4-8, and the following chapters after, the people of God that has become ‘me’ centered, taking advantage of others that are weaker, exploiting, robbing and grabbing for themselves. ­­­­ Reflection What is... read more

Daniel

A helpful question to ask in the reading of any part of Scripture is “What is this passage telling me about God?” As I read Daniel, two characteristics of God stood out: The Sovereign Lord, The Triumphant Lord Some TIPS on How to Read the Book of Daniel The book of Daniel is well known for being the home of three favourite Bible stories for kids: Daniel and the lions’ den, the three friends in the fiery furnace and the writing on the wall. Those of us who grew up in church will at some point probably have either acted out these stories or created art works depicting poor Daniel thrown into the lions’ den. But Daniel is also home to some super-weird visions – depicting of creatures and scenes so weird that the closest things we as people in the 21st century can relate them to as sci-fi movies or books. MOST people find the actions-packed stories in the first half of Daniel fairly easy reading. But, when it comes to the second half (chapter 7 onwards), they find that the style of writing is so different from what they are used to that they struggle just to make sense of the text. Why does the book of Daniel contain such strange literature? How does the second half of Daniel relate to the first? Or are the two parts even related at all? To help you make sense of the book of Daniel as a whole, we’ve prepared three “big-picture” questions for you to ask as you read. As you work through the book with these questions in... read more

Revelation

Blessed is the one who reads it, hear it and take to heart The originator of Revelation is God, who gave this to Jesus to show John through His angel what must soon take place. Asia was hard-pressed as Christians were persecuted for their faith and were invited to worship Lord Caesar. Refusing to do so will end up being boycotted in business, receiving personal insults and even some to the point of losing their lives. It was also at this time that there are immoral men and women who comes and contaminates the church. The letter was address to the 7 churches in Asia Minor. Some TIPS on How to Read the Book of Revelation Revelation can be read in 7 portions. As you read the different portions, the questions were to help you to note the main focus. Chapter 1-3 Chapter 1 Note the magnificence of Christ, picture Him as you read Chapter 2-3 Note the commendation and admonition to the 7 churches. Ask which church am I like? And how can I be an overcomer? Chapter 4-7 Chapter 4 Note the key players which is the One sitting on the throne and the ones surrounding the throne Chapter 5 Who is worthy to take the scroll? Chapter 6-7 Destructions, what is my attitude towards sin and suffering? Chapter 8-11 The horror of the unrepentant and yet wickedness continues Chapter 12-14 Will I receive the mark of the beast and be deceived? Chapter 15-18 God will judge the deceiver Chapter 19-20 Are you ready to be the bride? Are you invited? Chapter 21-22 Our new home with... read more

1, 2 & 3 John

With so many churches with different teachings emerging in recent days, how do we discern which ones are teaching correctly and which ones are not? How do we know that what is being preached on the pulpit every Sunday in our churches is really from God or not? Are you sure that your pastors or speakers invited to your churches are really preaching according to God’s Word? Have we ever stopped and asked these questions? If we have not, perhaps it’s a good time to start doing so. Because if there were false teachers existing in John’s time, there certainly are more today! Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. (1 John 2:18) When John wrote 1 John, an early form of Gnostic teaching was creeping into the church. Its central teaching was that spirit is entirely good and matter (physical body) is entirely evil. This has led to people believing that they can do anything (including breaking God’s law) and not face its moral consequences since the spirit still remains good. It also questions the true humanity of Jesus Christ, implying that Christ only “seemed” to have a body. Some believed that the divine Christ (spirit) joined with the man Jesus (body) at baptism and left Him before He died on the cross. Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist – he denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever... read more

Hebrews

Some Tips on How to Read the book of Hebrews Reading Hebrews is like using the magnifying glass. It brings into focus what truly matters, enlarging and helping us to see things in perspective while the rest recedes into the background. Here as you read the Letter to Hebrews, the author’s intent and focus is inescapable – the Lord Jesus Christ. In order to appreciate the letter, we must put ourselves in the shoes of the Jewish congregation. They are probably Greek-speaking-Jews who have accepted Jesus as the Messiah. Now they are facing the greatest challenge of their lives. Among their numbers, some are beginning to waver in their faith and wandering if the religious life of Judaism they had left behind was a mistake after all. Is Jesus really the Son of God or just among the many messengers of God? After years of ritual and sacrifices, is it wise to discard all and put the full weight of trust in Jesus? These are questions that the author took time to answer. As he unfolds his argument, a picture of the majestic Christ emerged, that not only is he sufficient and much superior above everything and everyone, he is the perfect revelation of God. Perhaps a simple outline here will helps us in our reading. Hebrews is divided in 2 main parts: Chapter 1 – 10:- Jesus is superior 1. Greatest Messengers of old: Prophets and angels 1 – 4 2. Greatest Deliverer of old: Moses 3 – 4 3. Reverend Religious Order of Old: Priesthood and Sacrificial System 4: 14 – 10:18 Chapter 10:19 – 13:25:- Those... read more

Philemon

Reflection Paul appeals to Philemon to receive back his runaway slave. What was so ‘awkward’ about this request? Runaway slaves were usually tortured, or even killed as a lesson to other slaves. Philemon had every right under the legal system of the day while others (especially slave-owners) may also expect him to treat Onesimus harshly. Beyond Social Expectations Paul told of how precious Onesimus has been to his ministry after his conversion. But to be fair to Philemon, he is sending Onesimus back. Paul even says maybe it was a good thing that someone more valuable than just another unwilling slave. Philemon is receiving back a slave AND a brother in Christ. So Paul is saying, “Hey, don’t just ‘not kill’ Onesimus, but welcome him back with joy.” Wow, berani lah Paul ask this of Philemon! (or How dare Paul ask this of Philemon!) No ‘Limits’ to Love in Christ But the ‘power’ behind his request was love. Not his apostolic authority, nor the fact he is the ‘spiritual father’ of Philemon. Paul is even willing to pay back what Philemon was cheated off so that there can be no other reason not to receive Onesimus. Philemon’s previous record of faith and love for the brothers and sisters in Christ convinced Paul that he would act in a manner pleasing to him. The world teaches us that love has its ‘limits’. It should be ‘returned’. It has ‘conditions’, it has ‘boundaries’. What about CHRIST’s love? His love crosses boundaries; sets no conditions; able to love anyone regardless of status and past history. Responding Can we go beyond the world’s... read more
