It’s Time For A Massive Kingdom Invasion!

This is it, folks! We’re now just three days away from the most significant event on our calendar, Kingdom Invasion 2017 and the excitement is palpable. From 14-17 March at the Singapore Expo Hall 1, we’re expecting amazing things to happen. The theme this year is “THY KINGDOM COME!” and already, we’ve been hearing of reports of people experiencing their miracles and getting healed, all “pre-Kingdom Invasion”. This is exciting because it builds faith for something greater. Personally, I’m going to the conference trusting and believing for my own healing and breakthroughs.

In a previous write-up, I had mentioned that each day during my devotions, I’d make it a point to quote Mark 11:22-24, “So Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore, I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.’”

There are several powerful keys in this passage. Number one, the faith that’s mentioned here is not positive-thinking or positive confession, or that mind over matter stuff.  You can’t conjure up faith as much as you can make a single hair on your head white. Faith is a substance from heaven and it’s given to you by God. God has to first drop faith in our hearts before anything can happen. Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” This kind of faith is often released into our hearts as we read the Scriptures or as the Lord speaks a “RHEMA” to you. When Jesus said, “Have the faith of God”, I think the best rendition of this verse is – Have the “God-kind of faith”. That’s what I want God to drop into my heart during this Kingdom Invasion.

Then there’s something in the Bible called a “PRECEDENT” and it’s an importance concept in the Word. Understand that the Bible we read really is a law book with case laws. We read about what the people did and how God responded. We read about how He dealt with His people and how He blessed them when they were obedient. In the Bible, we’ve a compilation of stories that gives us something called precedence. This simply means if in future, there’s a situation similar to a story in the Bible, you can use it as a precedent and know how God will act in such a situation. If He acted this way in the past, then we’ve a case that He can act again, when a similar situation arises. He’s the same, yesterday, today and forevermore.

Here’s a great example of this. A wonderful illustration is the woman with the issue of blood. We find her story in Mark 5. We’re told that for 12 years; she had spent her livelihood going from one doctor to another and no one could help her. She had suffered a flow of blood and she had lost all her money and worse still; she had lost her hope, until she heard of Jesus.

As she approached the crowd that had gathered around Jesus, there was no way she could get close to Him. So, she begins to push her way in because she had this inkling that if she could only reach out and touch the hem of His garment, she’d be made well. And the moment her hand reached out and touched His garment, the power that was in Jesus was released, flowed into her and she was completely made well. Jesus felt the flow of virtue from Him and said, “Who touched Me?”

But this was not an ordinary touch. This was the touch of faith. And it’s the touch of faith that always gets the results. The woman finally owns up and Jesus commended her for her faith. The story was noised abroad and we come to Mark 6:56, one chapter later, where we’re told that wherever Jesus went from then onwards, the people would just beg to touch His garment and as many as touched Him were made well.

So, here’s the principle. One woman broke through the crowd, reached out and touched Jesus by faith and when that happened, everyone was now reaching out in faith to touch the hem of His garment. As they did, they were all healed. All it often takes is for someone to say, “I’ll believe for the impossible.” One breakthrough is all we need. May God grant you not just faith, but the breakthrough that you are waiting for.

The Coming Glory

“And he said, I beseech thee, shew me Thy glory.” Exodus 33:18

There’s a recurrent theme that’s been playing out over the course of the past week revolving around the Glory of God. The cry of Moses in wanting to know God’s glory and ways came forth in multiple services this past weekend. It did not end there; the same heartfelt cry of Moses continued through the recently-concluded “Fast-it-Forward” prayer meetings. Is this coincidence? I think not! What does this all mean especially as we set sights on the upcoming Kingdom Invasion Conference?

Let’s think of Moses for a moment. He came to a place of knowing God – His Glory and His Ways which paved the way for him in making these attributes of God known to Israel. How does one come into read more…

A Call to Volunteerism

Do you know the nickname that’s given to the state of Tennessee in the United States? It’s called “The Volunteer State” and it was through the efforts of about 2,000 volunteers under the leadership of General Andrew Jackson that contributed to the successful outcome in the American War of 1812 against the British. These men also fought a key battle on behalf of another state in the battle of New Orleans in 1815. This fighting force inspired another 30,000 volunteers from Tennessee in the Mexican War in 1846-48. They deemed their cause to be greater than themselves and their own state. It’s an enduring tribute that continues to thrive to this day. 

I believe this is the standard that God wants to establish in Cornerstone. The upcoming Kingdom Invasion is much more than just a conference. In fact, it’s a read more…

Faith for the Supernatural

About two months ago, on one of my daily morning walks, I suffered a pretty serious injury. I often walk in the vicinity of my neighbourhood where there’s a small park with several exercise machines. That morning, I foolishly tried one of those machines, without any warmup or supervision and ended up badly tearing the ligament on my left shoulder. The pain over the next few days was almost unbearable. I had difficulty sleeping and it got to a point where I had trouble putting on a shirt. On the advice of my brother, who’s a doctor, I went to see an orthopedic surgeon. He examined me and diagnosed that I had a torn ligament. He wanted me to go for an MRI and I said no. He went on to say that if the tear was severe, an operation read more…

Love The Stranger

In Deuteronomy 10:17-19, we find these words, “For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe. He administers justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the stranger, giving him food and clothing. Therefore, love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”

The Children of Israel were strangers in the land of Egypt for 430 years. When they first came to the land, Joseph was the governor of all Egypt. There were only 70 people in the family of Jacob and they needed a safe and protected haven to grow and multiply. And Egypt was that safe haven. Egypt was the womb to bring forth God’s nation. Israel started multiplying like mice and soon, read more…

The Place Where We Dwell Is Too Small

“See now, the place where we dwell with you is too small for us.” 2 Kings 6:1
This was the statement made by the sons of the prophet to Elisha. They had obviously outgrown the current facility they were in and the overcrowding made them go to the prophet and ask for a bigger place. The prophet’s response? GO!

When we first bought our current facility way back in 1997, it took almost 18 months from the first time we viewed the premises till the time we agreed to purchase the property. When I first stepped into the facility, the Lord so stirred my heart about the place and I just “knew” that this was going to be ours. We offered a price; the owners countered offered, and this went on for a long read more…

They Have Divided Up My Land

Joel 3:2b “They have also divided up MY LAND.”

Genesis chapter 15 is one of the great chapters in the Word of God. In this chapter, we find God promising to give to Abraham the whole land of Canaan. Abraham then asked the Lord a question. He said, “How shall I know this?” In other words, what sign will you give to me? It wasn’t doubt on Abraham’s part because the verse before indicated that he believed God and it was accounted to him for righteousness. The apostle Paul commented on this chapter in Romans 4 when he gave his classic exposition on faith. What Abraham was asking God for was a sign of His promise. The Lord, in response to Abraham’s question, then proceeded to make a covenant with him and the rest of the chapter read more…

The Chariots of God

Our first service of the year set the tone for what God has already put in our hearts. Heidi Baker was compelled to share the vision that God gave her sometime ago and I’m relaying the vision to you again because of its significance for us as a church. This is the word of the Lord to Cornerstone.

“In the vision, I saw chariots; chariots of fire surrounding the globe. And in the chariots, each one had two saints of God and they had no colour and it really struck me. ‘Lord, why is there no colour in them?’ The Lord said, ‘Because they’re transparent.’ There are no hidden motives, no hidden agenda, no hidden sin, nothing’s hidden. There was only one portion of them that had colour and it was their hearts. They had huge hearts.

Year of the Greater

I entitled my blog in Jan 2016, “The Year of the Lord’s Favour” and wow, what a year 2016 has turned out to be. I recalled the year before that, 2015, was such a high point in our journey that I actually thought it could not get any better than this, but we surpassed all expectations and I’ve to give God all the glory. 2016 will certainly go down as one of the most incredible and productive years in our 21-year history. It was an absolutely amazing year for us and yes, we’ve had some very fruitful years in our past 21 years, but I can’t recall a year that was so fruitful.

What is 2017 going to hold for us?

Well for one, after the inauguration of the 45th US President read more…

What A Year This Has Been!

This weekend is technically the last weekend for us in 2016. How quickly times flies and we’re now at the end of the year and about to enter into a brand new year. I took a quick inventory of 2016 and I must confess that this year has been one of the finest years we’ve had on record, in every way. We recorded pretty phenomenal growth for 2016 and this increase has continued unabated since our inception, year upon year. For this, we give God praise. With the exception of just one congregation, all our congregation marked a healthy increase in attendance.

2016 started off with a bang with Kingdom Invasion 2016. I think it was the best KI conferences we’ve ever had on record. Not only were the speakers amazing, the healing and miracles amazed us all. read more…

Stand Up For The Truth

Have you ever considered the extreme contrasts found in John 8? On one hand, we’ve the familiar verse of knowing the truth and being liberated by it (Jn 8:32). We then see satan mentioned as the one who’s the “Father of All Lies” with no truth abiding in him (Jn 8:44). This conflict and tension is manifesting itself in full measure in today’s world.

The term “fake news” is being injected into the daily discourse of life, but who really is its author? Does this have any relevance to the Church? The origin of fake news can be sourced back to the Garden of Eden. God spoke “Truth” with regard to the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil (Gen 2:16-17). Satan wasted little time in seeking to redefine God’s truth (Gen 3:4-6). The sobering reality is this – man read more…

The Willingness To Change

According to the Southern Baptist Convention, an average of 1,000 churches disappear from their databases each year. Research cites “unwillingness to change” as the primary reason. Charisma Magazine reported that 3,700 churches close their doors every year in the U.S. alone, but the Christian Post suggests it’s more likely 10,000. That’s a staggering number. So why are so many churches closing their doors?

In Luke 5:33-39, we find an interesting passage that gives us an understanding that before God can pour into us His new wine, a new wineskin has to prepared. That if we want to have the privilege of hosting His Presence, then we must be willing to make changes in the way we do church. So let’s get into context.

Several disciples of John had come to Jesus and asked Him, “Why do read more…
