Pulpit Series 1 (c) on Isaiah 50 to 55

The prophecy of Isaiah addressed sinful Judah, who had forsaken the Lord & thus suffered God’s judgment in their conquest and exile by the Babylonians. Continuing from Isa 50 – 55, the faithful and compassionate God further reveals how through the Servant of the Lord, he will save both the remnant of Israel and the nations of the world from their sin and unrighteousness. God continues to speak today through Isaiah’s message. He is calling on everyone to trust and hope in Him for the salvation accomplished by the Servant, and to be ready to depart in the new exodus. Will we listen?

Pulpit Series Three: 2-part sermons

How do we tell others about something as precious as our faith without fearing being tongue tied?

And how do we get around the obstacle of hearts that claim no need for Christ?

Yet the truth is we are His witnesses empowered by His very Holy Spirit.

Let us learn from Dr Ng Tjoh Dju over 2 Sundays, the spiritual weapons we have to effectively pray for lost ones and simple handles to help us winsomely share the Good News.

Pulpit Series 1 (b) on Isaiah 46 to 49 — Supreme God, Suffering Servant – Our Sure Hope of Salvation

The prophecy of Isaiah addressed sinful Judah. They had forsaken the Lord and thus suffered God’s judgement by the Babylonians. In Isaiah 40-55 (which we are covering for the first half of the year), God spoke to the future of the people of Judah. Despite their sinfulness, God would not abandon them. He wanted them to trust in Him, reminding them ofHis majestic sovereignty over the world, and His steadfast love and commitment to them. A 2nd & greater exodus is promised through the Servant of the Lord. Isaiah’s message is still relevant today.

To follow Jesus …. Luke 9:23-24
“And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.”

To seek the Lord …. 2 Chron 7:14-15
“If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place.”

To be united as a church body …. Eph 4:1-3
“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”

Advent Pulpit Series: Our Celebration of Hope

The first coming of the Messiah is a fulfilment of the Hope that was prophesied in the Old Testament and now fulfilled in the New. We can rejoice and celebrate because Christ has come, he has died on the cross for our sins and we have hope because He has returned to the Father and He will return again soon to establish His kingdom.
This Christmas season, in spite of all the fake news circulating and all the bad news that confront us daily, we can be confident and steadfast and look forward to blessed days because HOPE has arrived.
