Deception, Witchcraft & Sorcery

God is love do you take Him for granted?

Dear Friends,

Regarding the CHC case, the DPP, and all the defendants have submitted their written submission to the court. I believe Kong Hee and his 4 inner circle of friends and Eng Han have read the prosecution’s submission. Oral submission is on September 10 and 11 at court 1.

Why is it that at this time, Kong Hee wants to use the pulpit to talk about the brother who cross-examined him?

God does not give us a pulpit and His word for our own personal agenda. I personally feel that Kong Hee was using the pulpit during Aug 8 and 9, 2015 to mesmerize the audience with his supposed private conversation with Jesus.

Kong Hee taught the audience to read the bible and pursuit God. When he comes to the 3rd point on Love, Kong said:

(The following is the transcript of Kong’s private conversation with Jesus.)
Last year I have a life transforming moment, concerning what love is all about. I have a life transforming moment when I was on the stand in court. Over 5 weeks, over 19 days, over 5 weeks. So that was a very long season.

The 1st week when I was in court, one of those that cross-examined me was someone from our church. He made some cutting remarks that broke me up then. Hurt me very deeply. Very hurtful with his words. For me, at that point, it was easier to face the prosecutor. Because the prosecutor was a stranger. I don’t know him, he doesn’t know me. So he can make all his allegations, but, well, he’s doing his job, I don’t know him, he’s not my friend. But this brother was somebody that I broke bread with. And the words from a friend can cut very deep.

I felt pretty broken up that 1st week. He cross-examined me on Thursday, on Friday. Saturday I was at home, and I went to my bathroom to take a shower. As the water was running, I was reflecting on the events of the week. And suddenly I heard Jesus speaking to me. He said Kong, you know what you have to do right? Ah, I said yes, Jesus. He said Kong, you gotta forgive him. I said, Jesus, I already forgive. I said Jesus, I’m a pastor. I’m a man of God. I’m a theologian. I’ve already forgiven. He said no you haven’t. He said you forgave him in your mind. You forgave him in your concept. But you never forgave him in your heart. And Jesus immediately reminded me, Matthew 18. You see, that’s why the Holy Spirit, He speaks through your scrip — er, your scriptures that you have read. And Jesus says in Matthew 18, that we must forgive a brother or a sister, from our heart. He said you got to emotionally let him go. Emotionally start to feel good about him. Wow.

And so I have a little struggle. But I’ve learnt a long time ago, it’s very foolish to struggle with God because you will never win. So I said alright Jesus, Jesus, I let him go emotionally. I will try to feel better. I let him go. And then He said prove it. I said, how do you want me to prove it? And right there and then, in my shower, Jesus reminded me of Matthew 5. He says you must bless your enemies and pray for those who have spitefully used you and have even cursed you. You pray and you bless. I said wow, Jesus, how do you want me to pray? Pray that he cuts me even more, pray that his dagger is sharper? Pray that the public humiliation is even worse? How do you want me to bless him? I said God, he has publicly humiliated me. He says, how do you want me to bless you? I said oh that’s easy. I know how I want you to bless me. Jesus, bless my life, bless my family. Jesus I’m in a financial difficulty, Jesus prosper me. Let me reap whatever I have sown over the years. Give me a harvest. Oh Jesus, heal all the sick people I know in my family. Jesus, give me a greater anointing. And so I was going on and on, oh very easy, Jesus I know how I want to be blessed. I was very happy. And then Jesus pulled the punch line — now I want you to pray and bless him the same way you want me to bless you. Wow. Suddenly I felt like I was standing beside a huge mountain that I couldn’t move. And with every fibre of my being, I forced myself to say those words. I said oh God, bless my brother with an amazing life. Bless he and his wife and his family. He must be going through a lot of worries and pain. God, take it all away. Let there be peace. Oh, he must be struggling financially. God, prosper him. Make him the head and not the tail. Whatever church he’s in right now, let the anointing of God come upon him so that he can serve in a greater way. Jesus, I pray your destiny for him come in its fullness. Make him the man for the hour.

And I found myself praying, and it was so hard at first, and it got easier, and soon I was in tears. I started to cry until the water from my eyes and the water from the shower, they are one.

But something very deep and dramatic happened to me that day. Dramatically transformed me, because I went back to court on Monday, and I had to face him because he still continued to cross-examine me. Suddenly I felt something I never felt before. I felt there was no animosity, I felt there was no anger or hatred. I find myself even sitting in the court praying for him. Loving him. And I found myself throughout the rest of the court trial, until last May, I found myself many moments in court, praying for him, his wife, his family. Praying God, You be good to him. I learnt that there’s no limit to love, therefore there must be no limit to our forgiveness. This is the paradigm. Come on, go ahead and give the Lord a big hand.

Did Kong wrap himself in the message to move your emotions? I beseech you to exercise your discernment. I didn’t transcribe the whole sermon. I believe CHC will upload Kong’s sermons by this week. For the audience who had attended August 8 and 9 weekend service, would you remember you need to abide in God’s word? Would you love Christ because God is love and Jesus died on the cross for you and me? 

Or 

Would you feel God is love because you felt sorry for Kong Hee?

 

Deception, Witchcraft & Sorcery

Derek Prince had taught extensively about Witchcraft. He defines witchcraft as the works of the flesh according to Galatians 5:20. He says that witchcraft always has the 3 attributes of: Manipulating, Intimidating and Dominating. How can a Christian know whether his/her church is being attacked by witchcraft?

When witchcraft is active in the church community there are always at least two results: legalism and works of the flesh.

In his article ‘Witchcraft Exposed And Defeated’, Derek Prince cautioned against being bewitched where warfare is waged in our minds to be entrapped by Satan. Satan’s counter attacks manifests in the form of Carnality and Legalism (attempting to achieve righteousness by works; and adding extra requirements (Rom. 4:22–25)).

Rebellion is witchcraft. (1 Samuel 15:23). Rebellious people normally attempt to control others. Rebellion keeps a person from trusting in God for their needs, therefore they must use the world’s system to obtain their basic needs. The world’s system has a prince named Satan, and he is into control and manipulation. His methods are imprisonment, slavery, selfishness, all of which utilise control of others.

Control

How people control you. You will always have others who will try to control you for some reason or another. It may be for money, power, or security of some kind, or perhaps to give them significance. The three main needs of the human are love, security and significance. People do not know how to obtain these from God, so they will try to manipulate you in order to achieve these ends. Watch out when someone is telling you that you should be doing something, or you owe something to them. This is often the sign of the manipulator. So often Christians use the Bible as a means of manipulation. They show you one Scripture out of context to prove that you should be doing something. The Holy Spirit never uses force or pressure. He always suggests things and allows you to make a free decision.

How you control others. Be sure that you are not guilty of witchcraft, even in the smallest way. Never push people to give to you. Never manipulate, or try to dominate. Always give people their free will to make their own decision without making them feel guilty or obligated.

Jezebel Spirit

Most people misunderstand her role as one of a sexually perverse person. She may have been, but her primary role was one of usurping proper authority. Her husband the king Ahab was supposed to be the ruler, but actually, behind the scenes she was calling the shots. When Joram saw Jehu he asked, “Have you come in peace, Jehu?” “How can there be peace,” Jehu replied, “as long as all the idolatry and witchcraft of your mother Jezebel abound?” (2 Kings 9:22).

Actually, the Jezebel spirit can operate in a man as well. However, mostly, it operates with women in this area. They often use sex as a method of manipulation. They entice men who do not properly submit to the authority of Jesus, or to their proper earthly authority. Their aim is to fulfill their needs for love, security, and significance.

Revelation 2:20-23 says, “Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.”
