God is the one who gives rulers their reign and their kingdoms, and he is the one who takes it back in his due time. Come and hear how this theme is worked out in the life of Nebuchadnezzar and the Babylonian kingdom in Dan 4–5 and hence, our rightful response and attitude. Pastor Edmund Fong preaches.
Jesus, when invited to a meal by the Pharisees, takes the opportunity to teach us about the kingdom of heaven's dinner social dynamics: one where life is affirmed, the proud humbled and true generosity displayed. This is a dinner where we must not presume we will be there, but instead must make every effort to be there by accepting the invite offered by Jesus. Pastor Edmund Fong preaches.
Even as we follow the Lord Jesus, Eph 6 tells us to be ready for intense spiritual warfare against the devil and his cohorts. Come hear how we can i) understand better the reality of the devil and spiritual warfare ii) understand when the devil is at work iii) understand how the devil works (with the help of C.S. Lewis) and iv) most importantly, resist the devil. Pastor Edmund Fong preaches from Ephesians 1.
What if somebody were to be able to do the things that only God can do? What would that make of that particular person? Come and see and respond to Jesus as he shows us what God does... he does too. Pastor Edmund Fong preaches from John 5:1-30.
Come hear how the unstoppable God fulfills his purpose in Acts by bringing his servant Paul all the way to Rome, which in Luke's eyes forms 'the ends of the earth'. The question remains for us - are we going to be unstoppable in the things God wants us to stop in? Or are we going to be unstoppable in the things God has given to us to persevere in? Pastor Edmund Fong preaches the Sunday sermon from Acts 27-28.
Suppression and an unwillingness to confess his sins led the psalmist in Ps. 32 to be in a terrible wretched state, while free and honest confession of his sin before God liberated him. Come and listen and find out in what way honest heartfelt confession of our sins before God is good for our soul. Pastor Edmund Fong preaches.
"Eloi, Eloi, lamasacthani?" (My God, my God why have you forsaken me?) What does it mean for the psalmist to say that in ps 22? And what does it mean for the Lord Jesus Christ to say that in his dying breath as he hung on the cross? And does that have anything to do with our own experiences of feeling forsaken? Pastor Edmund Fong preaches from Psalm 22.
Who was Jesus? Was he merely the latest prophet or teacher to appear with his radical teaching? Or the latest sensation with his miraculous deeds? Did he merely appear to gain popularity and to arouse a new hope, but only to fizzle out through his death on a cross? Come and listen from the perspective of Cleopas, one of the disciples of Jesus back then, on the whole difference an empty tomb makes! Pastor Edmund Fong plays the role of Cleopas.
God in Leviticus declares what is ‘clean’ and ‘unclean’ in terms of the Israelites’ everyday living, hence teaching them that the God who saved them out of Egypt is the Holy God and one who has every right to define the boundaries of holiness! Jesus comes in the NT with radical authority to define ‘clean’ and ‘unclean’ and more so, to make the unclean clean! Pastor Edmund Fong preaches from Leviticus 13:1-11 and 15:31.
Come hear the Apostle Paul's last words to proclaim the gospel and finish well in the gospel. Most of all, come hear the last words of a man whose entire life was consumed by the gospel and caught up with the person of the Lord Jesus. Pastor Edmund Fong preaches from 2 Tim 4:1-8.
What exactly is a New Members' Service? And who exactly are we pledging our commitment to? John 1:1-18 shows us who is Jesus and what exactly He has come to do that so deserves our whole-hearted commitment and following. Pastor Edmund Fong preaches.
Come and hear the legacy that Joshua leaves behind for the Israelites - a legacy of God's covenantal faithfulness. A covenantal faithfulness to bless if the Israelites respond with the covenantal mutual response of faith and trust called for, but also to strike if the Israelites choose to rebel against God by clinging to other gods! Pastor Edmund Fong preaches from Joshua 23.
Come and hear the difference the resurrection of the Lord makes to Him, our understanding of Him and this world you and I live in! Pastor Edmund Fong preaches from Matthew 27:57 to 28:20.
