DAY 243 - Do Not Weep! I Have Triumphed!

Today’s Reading: Revelation 5

Please read Revelation 5 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method:Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Chinese: 5&version=CUV

Then one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals." Revelation 5: 5

What Jesus told Michelle as we were having daily devotion this morning was a wonderful encouragement: Do not weep! I have triumphed!

This word of encouragement has given Michelle lots of comfort and strength that she told me that Jesus told her do not need to weep any more for He has triumphed.

What I heard today was also very wonderful that I have changed the format of my blog starting today. A more simpler way as you open my blog and have a song to worship the Lord before reading His Word and a song worshipping Him to conclude you daily devotion.

The Lord has also revealed to me how He gave me the content of my seal(at the beginning of most of the posts of my blog). I have the bishop's mitre as most of the bishops' seals does. And I have the Canadian flag on the left and the AMiAs seal on the right. Then with the Victorious Lamb at the bottom as a firm base to remind me to focus my eyes on the Victorious Lamb who is Jesus Christ our Lord.

What I received today from Jesus is we as human beings will never figure out what would happen in our life, this world or even what would happen tomorrow. But if we can have Jesus as our Savior and Lord of life daily then we can have the honor worshipping Him daily just like how the elders, angels and archangels worshipping Jesus in heaven daily. Only if we enter into this holy and glorious reality and relationship that we can experience the purpose of His creation and we can fall down and lay our crowns to worship Him alone.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to enter into this intimate relationship with you that we can worship you daily with the angels and archangels that we can be in your power, abundance, wisdom, strength, honor, glory and praise! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christians to have daily devotion - a wonderful and intimate time with Jesus.

There are three reasons for you to use this blog as your daily devotion:
1. A healthy spiritual diet - One chapter of the Bible daily. We really need at least one chapter of Bible daily so that we are well fed.

2. A good example of Spiritual Journaling - What I have committed for 1,189 days(the Bible has 1,189 chapters)to write this daily post is not for teaching purposes but this is my daily spiritual journal - I write down what I hear from Jesus and how I experience His intimate relationship with me each day. I have launched a wide-spectrum research on daily devotion and have found out that there are less than 10% of Christians that are having daily devotion. Out of that 10%, many having daily devotion are doing so because of guilt (they know that they are Christians and need to have daily devotion and feel guilty if they don’t do that), duty (they need to fulfill their duty as a Christian) or study(lots of Christians primarily use their daily devotion as a time to study the Bible). I do pray and hope that you will make up your mind to have a relational daily devotion so that you can have an intimate time with Jesus. I pray that you will write your own spiritual journal as well.

3. An online discipler – One of the reasons that so many Christians do not have daily devotion is because they do not have a disciple. A discipler can help them build up this basic element of discipleship when they first become Christians. The best way for you is to have a discipler to walk with you for a certain period of time so that daily devotion become a good habit. Or, you may have a small group of two to three people to encourage and be accountable to each other so that you won’t stop your daily devotion. I offer myself as your online disciple to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!
