8/1/2021 Jesus’s Name and Our Names ~Rev. Benjamin Chung

Luke 10:17-20 (ESV) The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!" 18 And he said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. 20 Nevertheless, do not

rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."


Our Lord Jesus is indeed Lord over ALL. He has power and dominion over all creation in heaven and hell. And when Jesus sent the 72 to minister to the people in the area, they did see the demons respond when the name of Jesus was declared! As believers, baptized by the Holy Spirit, we also have the authority to call upon the name of Jesus for miracles to be done. I encourage you to do so with wisdom and discernment. Pray for the Holy Spirit to fill you so that He can direct and guide you.


In fact, LoveSF is preparing a “March for Jesus” on September 18 in SF. There, we will proclaim the name of Jesus above all else! Even now, missionaries have been downtown ministering to the drug addicts and possessed. People have been turning to the LORD. Lives, physically and spiritually, are being saved and won. And this is because they have been declaring the name of Jesus and praying for healing. We can participate as well. We can ask the LORD for protection and to overcome the fear that can cause us to resist the opportunity to minister to those who have been afflicted by Satan. Let us not waiver but be bold! In fact, an Indian Pastor I know sent me this message recently, “Covid 19 could be all around you, but not touch you! That’s how powerful God is!! Ask Daniel in the Lion’s Den. AMEN”. This is certainly true. When our God is with us, nothing can stand in our way. Jesus does save.


To further reinforce this important Christian truth, Jesus taught the disciples to know and “rejoice that their names are written in heaven”. Did you know that your name is written in heaven, because you are a follower of Christ? Let us not get it backwards. Jesus’s name is not a magic phrase like, “Open Sesame.” We are the Lord’s first. Hallelujah! Knowing we are His children with our names written in heaven, let us then go forth and declare His name and His goodness. And then, the miraculous will be done. Praise the LORD, who is most worthy of praise!

5/21/2023 信心和順服之旅 ~鍾卓權牧師

信心能趨使我們獻身於上帝和祂對我們生命的計劃,是重生之後正常的回應。 主耶穌在升天之前,馬太福音 28:16-20 中記載衪告訴門徒要將福音傳給萬民。 然而,信徒中有不少的人並沒有為完成這個大使命而努力,至少不是熱烈地或者踴躍地去執行這個命令。 是什麼原因阻礙了我們 呢?恐懼很可能是原因之一。 例如,如果傳福音意味著離鄉背井,很可能會擔心新環境與治安的問題,文化上的差異,家人和朋友的反對。 我們也

5/7/2023 一天一步順服神 ~鍾卓權牧師

在我們的生活中,順服神的旨意是否會成爲一種負擔?跟隨神的行動是否是一種冒險? 我們經常認爲遵循神的旨意是爲了避免或是不願承擔後果。而有時,我們還以爲改變自己的計劃去順服神可能也是一種沒有把握的冒險。 將順服神的旨意視爲負擔的原因是因爲我們認爲跟隨主是要付出極大的代價。然而,我們也要知道,遵行上帝的旨意並不是僅僅局限於人生中的重大事件,其實同樣也包括在生活小事上的順服。腓立比書4章6節告訴我們,應當

4/9/2023 復活節之後 ~周錦榮執事

七日的頭一天,天剛亮的時候,婦女來到耶穌墓前,想為祂身體薰香,以表示敬愛,卻發現墓石打開,不見主的身體,守墓的兵丁也不在。主的使者向她們顯現,首次宣告主耶穌己復活,並要她們轉告門徒這消息及往加利利見耶穌,耶穌會在他們以先往加利利。在途中,婦女與主相遇,再次要她們告訴門徒往加利利相見 (太28:5-10)。當年十二歲的耶穌在耶路撒冷過節,遲遲未走,與殿裡教師學習討論(路2:46),但現在卻催速門徒回
