Church: The Potters House Christian Fellowship

The 1st thing I realized being there was the people who were there. Ben Fowles was my roomie for the week during the conference and we had a great time together with a dude named Daniel Warren too. There's nothing people would like to talk about... But JESUS CHRIST our LORD and SAVIOR.

I have met numerous people with so many different backgrounds during my stay at Australia. One person has an Ex-MMA fighter in the PWP tournament in Australia, another was an Ex-drug addict, some were Ex-drug sellers and quite a number of them were Ex-Muslims, a sister in Christ was an Ex-traditional idol worshipper... AND all of us gathered together in this conference worshipping The One and Only True God together... surrendering ourselves to The Lord Jesus Christ, having the Holy Spirit as our witness... meeting ourselves with The Father in Heavens.

Every sermons by the leaders were life challenging to impart to us a vision and an equipment to the saints for growth and increase. From time to time, were would have ourselves having fellowship and discussions of The Word of God during lunch time fellowship and dinner time fellowship. Everything was done with godly love towards each other.

There was quite a big crowd during the conference. Awesome atmosphere.

Every night we would also listen reports about what's happening in other Churches in our fellowship around the world as well as within Australia. It lifted up spirits in encouragement and edification as we could see that God is at work saving the lost souls around the world. Being in God's Presence continuously and hearing the Word of Truth constantly also gives us a strengthening in heart and assurance that not only The Lord is with us... The Potter's House Christian Fellowship Church was the right place for me to be with. Planting myself here in this Church was a great deal I got from that one decision I made back at 2013... To Accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and my Savior.

 I was sharing my testimony to a lovely sister in Christ

The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons.
Freely you have received, freely give.

-The Lord Jesus Christ-
The Book of Matthew Chapter 10, verse 7 & 8.

Looking back, it was a great experience for me as it thought me many things about life... as a Christian believer and also as a disciple of Christ. It's not about the religious activities one does just to have a "sunday-past-time" sort of stuff, but indeed everyone was engaged in a spiritual dimension where we heard sound teaching from The Word of God taken from the Bible... a balance message that ranges from surrendering to Christ Jesus our Lord, marriage, discipleship, evangelism, repentance of sins, consequences of sins, turning to God, having increase in one's life and also imparting the God given vision, anointing to the next generation.

As you would see from the pictures above, I also met many brothers and sisters in Christ. One of them was a Vietnamese lady that really has a heart and a thirst to have more of God in her life. In my time in Australia, I met some good brothers in Christ who has given themselves to Jesus and heard their testimonies this was very encouraging, as we we're edified through each other's life testimonies. A few other sisters who indeed has that spark and fire to talk about Jesus also was around to make it to an interesting fellowship group.

In our fellowship group there was a sister named Trang, she's lovely and very encouraging to our group as we hang out together often during the week and I also learned precious knowledge of Christ from her personal testimony on how Jesus has changed her life for the better. This made me realize something very important... The Lord Jesus Christ, in His obedience to God our Father... empowered by The Holy Spirit throughout His ministry here on earth... was a sacrificial act for all people from all nations... all different tongues... didn't matter how great your sins were... didn't matter how different you are from the others... We were all gathered together in that conference to worship The Savior Himself.

I thank God for I have met great people during the conference... people more noble than myself... Paki, M.J., R2, Taufa, Paul, Ruth, Junko, Joshin, Callum, Corban, Benjamin, Nathan, Rob, Tanya, Weina, Alma, Daniel, Ben, another Nathan, Jaafar, Eben, and many others... I cherish this experience in my heart and keep these people in my prayer and the Churches in our fellowship.

Upon landing to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia...

As I come back to Malaysia, the people I met were still fresh in my mind. I really missed hanging out with Christians who actually love talking about Jesus... We didn't talk about the movies at the cinema, we didn't talked about what's on television, we didn't talk about what's the famous worldly singer doing now... we talked about what Jesus Christ, King, Lord, Savior and Healer has done for us... How He single handed changed our lives... transforming us to be godly men and women... sons and daughters of God, The Father... filled with the Holy Spirit, saved by The Blood of Jesus Christ... Redeemed and saved... Assured and staying away from evil... THIS is the CHRISTIAN WAY... and I am blessed to be part of it.

My heart is for the lost souls in Malaysia... the souls marching into hell...

God, equip me for thy works... to declare the Gospel, The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, being a propitiation... taking what our sins deserve upon a cross... Resurrected and Raised unto the Right Hand of God...

Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in that which is to come
-The Apostle Paul-

To You, our Living Savior. Amen.

Twice Reborn: If Heaven is for real... then how about Hell?

The funny thing about Hollywood making "godly" movies is evident where people don't seem to notice the terror that follows... If Heaven is real... It is an irony that some miss out Hell is very real too.

Yea... We have the Bible to actually tell us everything we NEED to know...
(If you get the pun...)

Before you start saying "Here we go, Albrecht is being a religious nut again..." Maybe you can say, "Cool, let's see what Al has to say today" colonthree emoticon

As the day of Noah where Planet Earth was flooded (Yea, Hollywood kinda made that into a movie as well), it was simply an outpouring of God's Wrath. To those who has rejected, mocked or even ridiculed the Living and Eternal God... One must understand the price is.. eternal.. as well.

Why... why... WHY???

"For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse." -The Apostle Paul-

Hell is not a place where the devil will torment you day and night... (as wrongly pictured) it's pictured where the devil himself will also be tormented day and night... under God's Wrath.. His eternal wrath is Hell. You imagine you're up against an angry God, Who created Heaven and Earth... The whole solar system, the sun, the moon and the stars... it would be worst than the flooding of the Earth.

They will throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
 -The Book of Matthew-

A place with no hope, total darkness, oblivion, where weeping and gnashing of teeth can be heard. Why? The revelation of of you knowing that there is a God... and yet you have lived life as if there is none... and throughout eternity there would be this grief that you once had that chance to receive Truth but didn't... simple Truth.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
-John, The Apostle-

A truth where you could have accepted... believe... confessed... that the Cross is all you need in life... That Jesus Christ is Lord... Repent... Turn away from... to give up your sins... to give up living in sin... Turning to God, and clinging on His Anointed One... A Truth whereby maybe a friend... or maybe a colleague... your own mother, your own dad... brother, sister, cousin or whoever it was shared to you a simple Truth about the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ... and you rejected. I am sharing this to you... every second you spend in hell... it would be filled with a deep cutting agony that you wished you would have just accepted The Good News and Lived for Jesus Christ, The One and Only Savior that you'll ever need in life.

Is Heaven real? Yes. Is Hell real? Yes.

It's not worth the risk to continue to live in sin. Jeopardizing your very own soul. To turn your back on God, rejecting the Cross... is like a ticket bought by your very own hands to be in a very fearful place... The Wrath of God Himself, a judgement towards sin. I would not dare to imagine hell...

It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
-The Book of Hebrews-

Turn to God, cry out to Him, believe in The Gospel... No matter how great is your transgression, He is Faithful to forgive you of your sins if you would repent of your sins, humble yourself before The Lord and do not keep that pride of yours... to know your dire need of a Savior is the best revelation one can have in his/her lifetime. Because one can not save his or her own soul from the coming wrath with any filthy rags.

It won't be funny anymore when that Day would come... When every single person stands before The Throne...

Blessed be to those whose names are written in the Book of Life...

Twice Reborn: Before you think about killing yourself...







Last year, my friend was so close of killing himself,,, Wanted to jump from a building only to be saved by a policeman before he could even jump... Makes me realize something very real... Please do read on. I really do appreciate close friends... new or even old...

Life sucks sometimes... But... Not all the time... Remember the good memories?

If any of you are depressed in life, or even thinking of ending your life quickly... Maybe thinking there's no reason to live on. Things could change, things can get better and somehow, it's like this grace coming into your life just blessing you to turn things around in the challenges you are facing if you keep the will to move on through the storm.

Choose to live

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” - Jesus Christ -

If you're going through depression... Seek Jesus in your life and seriously, if you begin to ponder on the Love God has given you, you could be amazed on how important you are to Him and how He longs to have a relationship with you.

“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” - the Apostle Paul -

Sometimes, when you can't manage to solve a problem or even find a solution to anything... Get down on your knees and begin praying to God. I'm telling you this, because God cares for you. He is not a God Who doesn't answer prayer... It would be pointless to even have the word "prayer" in the dictionary if it's not even practical to actually pray. Prayer works. Prayer gets answered. and finally, at most cases... You yourself have to pray for your own situation. Because if you don't start believing God can help you when you yourself (or anyone in this entire planet) can't do anything about your own messed up situation... That's when you lose HOPE.

And seriously, He really... really... likes you

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” - the prophet Jeremiah -

Be hopeful and avoid taking the easy way out of troubles... (killing yourself in the process or killing yourself slowly by some other means), God has no evil plan or intentions against your life. He is a God who will come to your aid as you seek His Help. His Provisions and His Mercy & Grace... What father would give a son a stone when he ask for bread? How much more will God loves those who take refuge under Him?

Sometimes, you just need to throw out some unnecessary baggage in Life out the window...

Some things are better left unattended... thrown out... or even let go...
