Today's Reading: Exodus 20
Please read Exodus 20 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.)

Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning." The people remained at a distance, while Moses approached the thick darkness where God was. Exodus 20: 20-21
What I hear from our Lord Jesus Christ was the theme today: What's your choice- home or away?
Moses chose to approach where God was. Well, of course you can say that was what God intended to. Think twice. Does any father do want his sons or daughters remain at a distance or draw close to him? There was so much fear, and yet "fear of God" was the main learning for all people in the Old Testament time. They did not want God to speak to them for they saw lots of destruction when someone approached God. Well, in this age people fear lots of things but the only thing they don't fear is God. People do not fear to sin. Lots of them even think that they need to go to hell for all their friends will be in hell. They don't know what hell really is!
Do you want home or away? If you want to be at home, then you need to know who is the Lord of this home and what are the family rules for you to follow. That is your free will but it is a choice of eternal life or eternal death! I choose to be home daily and hope that your choice is the same. Daily devotions, daily intimate relationship and daily blessings!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help me to choose to be in your home daily and with you. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

God's time and blessings are always beyond imagination. Michelle was so good and healthy two days ago in our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Enjoyed every moment and ate everything our beloved brothers and sisters prepared. But, she got fever just the same as the last two time - exactly 10 days after the chemo! She lost most of her appetite and was very weak! Praise God for July 13, 2010 was only the 9th day!

It’s such a joy to witness the awesome power of the Holy Spirit moving among the Christians here. As we were worshiping at Dukum MKC church, there was so much singing, shouting, dancing, and a glorious exaltation of Jesus. The Holy Spirit is working so powerfully among the people here and no one holds back in worship.
Free. Full-hearted. Open. Jubilant.
That is worship.
Although I did not understand a word they say (with the exception of Jésus), I was worshiping in spirit and in truth. Can you imagine a church made of mud and steel plating, and yet it is FILLED with passionate worshipers who want only to praise God with their whole heart, body, mind, and soul? WOW!
Yesterday we went to visit 2 homes. At the first house we visited a girl and her sister, cousin, and mom...
