pdt Note – 2/7/21

February 7, 2021

Dear Church Family,

Our Sunday Celebration today can be accessed on YouTube video stream at around 10:45 AM (12:45 AM Asia).

Towards the end of 2020, the Holy Spirit has moved us to understand His heart for “Shalom 2021.”  Pastor Joseph kicked-off the first message series of “Shalom 2021” on the foundational theme of Faith.  Last week, we began our second “Shalom 2021” series on the theme of Preparing for Kingdom Encounters with the message entitled Kingdom Encounters of the Kairos Kind.

Scripture uses “shalom” to encompass many of what we desire – peace, safety, contentment, prosperity, health, completeness, friendship, and even covenant with God.  Jesus has prepared the world in 2020 so that His church can begin to take on the authority of shalom in 2021. This is why we are spending time and effort to prepare for kingdom encounters that will lead us to such authority.

There are many messages flying at internet speed that can bring about confusion, anger, fear, and anxiety.  God is speaking to us.  So let’s help each other do away with these distracting messages, and turn our focus on what the Holy Spirit is saying to CASC: Jesus has an awesome agenda for His bride at this kairos moment – that is to prepare our hearts for kingdom encounters.  Let’s walk in faith and stick with His program.

God willing, we will share on the message: The Purpose of Kingdom Encounters.  Scripture passages: Ephesians 5:25-27Matthew 16:13-28Matthew 20:20-28Hebrews 11:1-3Malachi 4:5-6.

Last week was a major storm.  This week will be record breaking cold.  Yet, we still plan to take our places at WPC so we can lead the corporate worship.  Joining us in worship would be a major kingdom encounter for many, yet we remind you to not squander these kairos opportunities.  If you plan to join us, please note that the sanctuary may be cooler than usual, maybe around mid 50 degrees, because the heating system is not available.  Do not give up!  Let’s stand together as a body to bring God our best possible worship with our offerings of sacrifice – and please Him with our faith.

Experience Emmanuel!
