Last Blog in Malaysia this year

This is likely my last blog in Malaysia this year.

The next will be done in Melbourne.

For starters, I'll be posting in three installments my next blog.

First, pictures and commentary on our three years and seven months in Grace Assembly. That's the happy nostalgic part.

Second, pictures and commentary on the mighty warriors I've had the privilege of knowing in Grace Assembly. That's the grand part!

Third, pictures and commentary on what was, what is, and what is to come in Grace Assembly. This would be my insider view on the whole journey. And that's the exciting part!

Unlike Raja Petra Kamaruddin, I don't think I'll be hauled up for sedition, ISA, OSA, or whatever Thossai or Chappati.... Heh heh, but it's time to look to a new season.

So if you're watching and waiting... pray along, and we'll soon see what's next!

God bless you all my wonderful friends, fabulous fans, and fiendish fiends....

Let me end with an old Christmas song ahead of time....

You better watch out, You better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
CAUSE Jesus Christ is coming so soon....

End of Days

Like the movie starring Pierce Brosnan in The Day After Tomorrow, the world's climate seems set to change more amid drastic levels in global warming. But more alarming is the financial meltdown that last days prophets of doom in the 70's and 80's would shrill with delight in proclaming curtains for all.

But really, how close are we to the end?

Those who have lived with the overcast gloom in those days and are pushing 50 to 60 today seem largely oblivious to the fears of yesteryears. I guess, for them, it doesn't really matter as much if Jesus comes back today or not since they are already close to ticking off their bucket list.

For those who are hale and hearty, the end seems a remote and unwelcomed possibility. Although none can run away from the inevitable of pushing daisies when their number is up, most do not come close to considering death let alone Jesus coming again.

So where does this leave us all?

The Bible says, as it was in the days of Noah, many will go on eating, drinking, and making merry with business as usual, so shall it be in the last days....

So what shall it be for you, my friend....

What does it matter if the end comes today, or tomorrow, or whatever you say?

What does it matter?

Does it matter that RPK is still squatting in a cell in Kamunting?

Does it matter that the financial status of the United States is in a quandary?

Does it matter that you have been ingesting melamine the past many donkey years as a result of China's .... hmmm shall we say, apathy?

Does it matter that Najib could be the next prime minister in Malaysia?

Does it matter that you don't know what you believe in and when someone asks you what your religion is and you pause a moment and say, ur hur ur ur....

Does it matter that tommorow Thailand will dip further into some kind of anarchistic melee as a result of the nation's loss of vision?

O you say, vision? Is Malaysian on target to achieve its vision 2020 or is the country going to go under in the next few years from corruption and mismanagement and sheer stupidity?

Does it matter .... O does it matter at all whether you are going to sleep soundly tonight and probably waking up to a more crappy tomorrow because you haven't figured out why you are the way you are?

Does it matter that the rest of the world is in doldrums and you're thinking about what you are going to do about your life?

Does it matter if anything really matters and nothing matters altogether because you haven't figured out what matters that is worth mattering over? Huh? Duh?....

Does it matter....? What? You say....
