Pre-Camp Prep Time! What to do….?!?!?!?!!??!?!
Camp is only……….2ish days away!!!
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN MANAGE THE OVERLOAD OF EMOTIONS YOU ARE HAVING FOR CAMP!
1. Continue to fast and pray for camp.
One meal a day!
"But, I don’t know what to pray for."
Pray for these things:
-Our Speakers! Rachael and Michelle Guna. Pray God to shower His blessings upon them as they prepare to bless us with their sermons during camp!
-The Weather! For good cloud cover but no rain. :p The games are looking reallllyyyyyyyyy awesome!
-Campsite! For the love of God to overwhelm the place so that even the random people who are working there will be touched by God.
-Your leaders! That they will have a supernatural amount of energy, and for God’s protection to be upon them as they finish up the last bits of camp prep for YOU!
-Your tribe members! Pray for them, individually, by name, that they will receive a personal revelation from God and have their lives changed.
-Your Family! So that they will not be too worried or sad when you’re gone at camp.
-Yourself! For strength and energy to wake up early, be spiritually prepared to receive, and to have a real good time during Love>
Sacrificing one meal a day is gonna be soooooooo worth it.

Love Is >
By Sarah Lin
Hey GoP! On what was most likely the last service of the year, Sarah shared on what love is and what it really means to love. As we embark on GoP camp (yay!!!), let’s prepare our hearts and open up our minds to receive fresh (even if different from what we’re used to) revelations of love!
1 Corinthians 13:6-8
#1 Love brings truth (v6)
Love is a mirror; it shows what is reflected on it.
Who we are to others should therefore, because of love, reflect the truth of ourselves (who we really are).
Love is also a weapon for us to fight for what is true - are we fighting for what is right?
#2 Love brings empowerment (v7-8)
Love is a package deal - not a buffet where you can choose what you want.
Love is willing to accept all things.
#3 Love always looks for the best
God brings out the best in others.
Giving/loving with pure motives is its own reward.
We love not to evoke a response but because we believe in what God wants us to do.
When we love, we do not want anything in return.
Have a meaningful week ahead and remember to love God, love others and love self!
INEXCUSABLE - ISAAC ONG 5/10/13
Hey there GoP! We have begun a new month of October! This month’s theme is INEXCUSABLE which kicked off with Isaac’s amazing sermon. Ready? Here it is!
Many of us uses excuses like “Iris lied to me” or “My mum said i have to study”. Sometimes we just use them to avoid going to church because we may feel tired.
However, at times like this it’s better for us to go to church to rejuvenate ourselves with God’s spirit. We should use our excuses for what is actually worth it, or when we really have to. Turn all our excuses around for the right thing.
Every part of our being is worship. The excuses we make are also counted as worship. Our entire being is worship. As God deserves all praise, everything we do should glorify him.
For most of us, studying is our biggest excuse. Of course, studying is also a form of worship. We can use studies as a way to glorify God, and we have to make the best out of it.
God just wants the best of us. We don’t need to win, to be the first. All it takes is to put in the effort. It doesn’t matter if we lose because if we gave it our best, that’s what God wants.
1 Cor 10:31
God gave everything for us. He gave his one and only son. Would we do the same? God looks for excellence, not success.
God looks directly at your heart. He appreciates a true heart. Whatever that gets in the way of us being able to worship God, give no excuses and get rid of it.
Faith - It is no longer a noun, it is a verb. Not only do we have to believe, but we have to act upon it too. Faith makes the dream a reality.
Discipline - Many of us hate discipline, because we always want it our way. But when we really love someone, we would discipline ourselves to not anger or displease them.
Leaders - Submit to your leaders for they are accountable to the Lord. Don’t take leaders for granted, as they will be there to guide and form us up to be leaders ourselves.
Well, GoP! I pray that we will put in effort to the best of our abilities to do what’s best for ourselves and God. I pray that with God’s help we’ll be able to accomplish the great and impossible. Amen!! Yup, let’s all go and step up, and reach out and be INEXCUSABLE!
Faith- Reverend Che Ahn 28/9/2013
Hey there GoP! I pray that you were blessed by the previous post of Reverend Che Ahn’s word on faith. This post that you are about to read is a little different than the previous post! Get ready to be impacted by God’s word on faith! Let’s go!
1 Corinthians 12
Faith is like a muscle. When you exercise your faith,it gets stronger like a muscle
When Jesus called blind guy, he let down his cloak
-This means that the rabbi sewed something onto the cloak and represented something about life.
Jesus often commands people’s faith
Matt13:15- He is God yet coz of atmosphere of unbelieve, He could not work.
Faith in God is a relationship, intimacy
God loves you and He wants you well!
Know how to do spiritual warfare
Release the power of testimony- Rev 19
1 Corinthian 3
Your testimony is crucial! Your testimony is powerful!
Desperate people know that if your church have healing, they turn up!
Faith comes by hearing!
GoP! I pray that you are blessed and reminded of what faith & testimony can do! I personally have been healed before of a terrible headache(i rarely have headacaches) not because i heal myself, but it is because of God’s Character and nature who loves me and wants me to be healed! All you have to do is to take that step of faith and ask God for it and it will be done! >.0 PTL! ^.^ Have a faith-full week ahead because i believe that there are many sick people out there and we are the vessel of God who is called out to the world to heal and tell them about our God who is crazy in love with us! Be bold! 0.<
Faith-Reverend Che Ahn 27/8/2013
Hey there GoP! Reverend Che Ahn reminded us and challenged our faith today! He was crazy in love with God and was confident and faithful in what God can do! If you have missed it, do not worry! I pray that you will be impacted as i am through this notes taken!
If you memorize scripture you’ll be healed-Rev Che Ahn
Matt 13:15-Jesus could not do miracles himself coz of the atmosphere of unbelieve
The woman with the issue of blood-girl of faith
Faith is spelt as RISK
When people are desperate they do desperate things
Acts 1:8-witness-laid down lovers
Jesus press the points on who touch Him. :
For eg. The woman with the issue of blood.
1) Jesus wanted to make a decree to make people accept her into the community
2) To command for her faith.
Opposite of faith is fear
1 John 4:17-18
Greatest of this is love verse- 1 Corinthians 13:13
God does not have faith but we have faith towards God
Mark 11:22 have faith in God
Luke 12:32 God wants to give you His kingdom
Why Jesus came? :
2) 1 John 3:8
3) John 14:7
God does not give you sickness to change you yet we have this theology.
Acts 33- allow goodness
Old Testament-God did not allowed people to touch people with leprosy coz God knows it will spread. God wants to touch that person with leprosy
How would the Father give His son when His son has leprosy
Abraham believed God and regard Him as a faithful God
It is God’s desire to heal
Isaiah 53:4 -physical healing
1 peter 4-physical healing
Jesus paid the price for once and for all!
Jesus not only cleared your sins but your curse too. Colossians 13:4
No longer under curse
Faith is trusting in a good God and trusting in His love.
By His stripes, you are healed!
Thank God for your healing coz God has already heal you already.
Stand on a His word, nature and character.That God is a good God who will give good gifts and not bad things to His beloved children!
Therefore GoP! I pray that your understanding of who God is and understanding faith have brought you to another level of faith and trust in God! Have a faith-full week with God as you go and heal or pray for people in your school, army or workplace! 0.< (Y)

Isaac Ong 10/9/2013 Truth
One thing that you need to grasp in the house of God is truth!
It is possible to act like orphans even though if you have parents because you did not understand.
In the house full of food you still feel hungry because we are not feeding ourselves.
When you step into the house of God, God loves you too much that He does not want to make you leave unchange.
Why are you here every week? Why do you do the things very week you come? Why do you worship God, shout at verse etc?
When you don’t know why you are living like this, your life will be tossed around
The weeks that you don’t feel like worshipping, begin to change that. Begin to understand the truth.
Truth is understanding why you decide to follow Him and why you are here or why you’re gonna read your bible or why you jump and all.
For some of the older Christians, what if you take all the sermons you have heard so far and apply it to your life?
Truth is so so important. For example p and w. if our speakers blow, how will you praise and worship?
When you understand the truth,you can go mad anywhere. Coz when the truth lives in you and you don’t zone out, you will live your,life differently.
When people are so in love with God, their life and their speech glorifies a God.
If you rely on your circumstances then it will be very hard to praise and worship God.
When you are so in love with God you just want to take every weapon and praise and worship God.
GoP is the fastest growing ministry in the church. We should be the most happening thing happening.
The devil buries truth. The devil hates it when we know the truth. The devil likes to bring life.
Since Adam and Eve they are already deceived and they truth to live the lie.
We have to make choices.
Whatever sacrifices you make is important to you,it is an act of worship.
It is possible that there are band and all but you do not praise and worship God.
Your truth must stand. Why are you jumping, why are you worshipping?
Truth versus facts. If you want you to be a doctor, you need to know the facts, but if you want to be a healer, you need to know the truth.
Understand the facts but believe in the truth.
Facts are the things that are happening infront of you. But if you know the truth, you know that God can help you. Eg. depression, tiredness etc.
Are you fact driven or truth driven?
All things are possible!
Are you holding on to facts or truth?
John 8:31 the truth will set you free.
Double edged sword to for the word of God is alive and sharper then the double edged sword.
This line is to test and correct you. It will ac tas a guiding thing to guide your life. It will judge you on your attitude and thoughts.
If something is important to you, the devil will attack there even more.
Many of us will put versus and chuck it at the back of the head.
3things about Truth
Anchor- we who have run our life’s for God, it is an anchor for my soul that verse
A lot of times you will go through the storms, you’ll pray for God to stop the storm but the storm happen to help you like build relationship. The truth will be an anchor. You drop the anchor but that truth, you will stand on it. You know that God is always there for you. I may not be a good ump feeling but it keeps you safe and make you stand firm. Hebrews 19
When you are praying for a breakthrough, no matter how the situations, you are gonna praise God.
Compass-Prov 3:5 that verse trust God from the bottom of your heart and don try anything on your own.
Read the word of God and let the truth lead you though you may not have the full understanding of the problem.
Verse- and that is not all you have complete and free assess to God’s kingdom
God has already set you free. What are you gonna believe in? You have the keys where you can no longer live like sinners. On the way, the devil will lie to you and make you believe it. Temptation is not sin, only when you decide to act on your temptation then that is a sin.
We have all authority!
If anyone decides to take on the truth, this entire month will be very different for you.
I dare you to go home and read the bible everyday and everyday you will be surrounded with facts. I challenge you to bring your truth to your facts.
Sometime things don’t happen the way you want and you decide to go back to the facts.
But if you choose to act on the truth, you will be weird. Because you are set apart. You are not meant to fit in. You are meant to set apart. You love and be Jesus.
The truth about God is the same though we may be different.
Next week is the love of the Father by Ps Ann, third week is on greater.
I DARE YOU TO CHALLENGE YOU FACTS WITH TRUTH
Praise and worship is declaring over our situation.
Let’s do it guys and cling on to God’s truth! Never ever doubt God and God is always there for you! Have a truth-full week ahead with Daddy God and be a little Jesus to your friends! ;)
FoP Day 2 by Ps Andy Elmes 3/8/2013.
-Concerns at a 21st century church, we concentrate too much conferences and lost something’s.
-Great commission was to release and see people, not store people
-The primary purpose that God gave the Holy Spirit is to equip the people in the church to win souls
-We need to make sure what Jesus wants from the 1st century church did and heard will still be the same from the 1st century church. The love, and passion for His people and Him.
-Will you be somebody that God can use to bring others to Christ.
-Are we still a Salvation Army or just putting on conferences?
-Will you carry Jesus where He wants you to go. The MSG is Saving Grace into your schools.
Luke 19:28 onwards
->Take the donkey, not pay for the donkey
-> the disciple said that The Lord needs it. Just one sentence and the believed to be a big sized guy, then let him use it.
->The donkey is used to carry Jesus which means the donkey was used to carry the presence of God into Jerusalem
-> Jesus freed the donkey for a purpose. Not coz He likes Donnie’s. the reason was coz He had a purpose for that donkey.
-> our lives were like a donkey. We were once tied up, once a slave and chained.But Jesus have set us free. By the power of Jesus everything was broken and we are set free that could hold us.
-> we are saved by grace
-> Paul said that our grace is from the gift of God and we are God’s workmanship to do GREAT WORKS.
-> works is Greek means business. To do business. Jesus has set me free to do good works.
-> why didn’t God choose stallions, coz they have pride. But a donkey is faithful.
-> if you want to be used by God, just be faithful. You don’t have to be famous or to be someone else.
-> Jesus is not asking you to do miracles but to carry Him to do miracles.
-> the things of the donkey saw was the different people praising God, going crazy for Jesus. He saw other people who were wearing black and were not happy. The donkey thought that Jesus will say keep quiet to Jesus.
->when you carry Jesus, anything can happen anywhere.
-> next few chapters, Jesus went up to the money changer in the church. People might thought He messed things up when He flipped the table. But actually He brought order to the house of God. The house of God is to praise God.
-> what if half the people decided that they want to live their life for God.
King Jesus wants to mobilize His army. but do you want to be mobilized by God?
The armies of the enemies are not asleep. It is time for us to be the light in the world and not hide it!
17/8/2013 - Pastor Ann x Roland
Service was extra special today because we had the privilege of having Pastor Ann AND Roland to preach! It was also pretty cool because Ps Ann preached in Chinese and Roland interpreted. There is no doubt that God’s love surpasses the languages. Why?
Jesus really loves you.
Why Jesus came
Those who are oppressed will be free!
Woman with the issue of blood
The Devil comes to steal kill and destroy.
- Sometimes the devil comes to steal without us knowing.
As long as you come before God, your problem would be solved.
He knows our needs.
Why did Jesus ask “who touched me?”
-He wanted everyone to know that His relationship between her has been restored.
God loves you!
Do you doubt God’s love to you?
-We have to know that Jesus died on the Cross for us(Truth)
Jesus loves you.
So today, make a decision to speak positivity into your life, and into the lives of others. God really understands what you go through even if no one does, see, hears, or knows about the pain.
Whether you feel it or not, Jesus loves you. Pray that God will reveal to you the ways He has been loving you and watching out for you all this while. :)
