DAY 256 - Mighty to Save

Today’s Reading: Revelation 18

Please read Revelation 18 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.)

Please click the links below to Revelation 18:

Chinese: 18&version=CUV

NIV: 18&version=NIV

ESV: 18&version=ESV

Message: 18&version=MSG

"After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted: "Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!" Revelation 18: 1-2

How many great but evil nations in the history of mankind have fallen. How many people were oppressed, frightened and killed by those great nations. And suddenly they disappeared!

Revelation 18 talks about the great and evil nation that is going to come in the form of the previous evil nation Babylon. We may never know which nation it will be in the time to come, but what we know that God is mighty to save. When God says "fall", a nation has to fall. So, why not focus our eyes on the almighty God and not be frightened by any other things that may come to frighten us.

Today is the second day that Michelle went back to VGH for her three hours treatment. She has to go for the treatment once every two days. She was surprised with joy when she came back home to be received by our prayer running team by clapping of hands. We had a short service outside and everyone who presented were richly blessed! It is so wonderful that everyone of us wore the meaningful T-shirt with the word "Believe". Yes, Lord we believe!

Dear Lord Jesus,

We give thanks to you for your love, protection, healing and mighty power to save. Help us to fear nothing and believe in you that only you can save and only you are the King of kings and Lord of lords. 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!
