December heart.

Being busy for the last two months,have not putting my heart beats at this place,as I return.
many things runs across my memories of things that happened and people who come across my pathways of life.
From TBH exhume and second autopsy to many of the fast and pass events. I would remind myself, time is not on our side to spare and to waste.
WE must use the time to "create" a legacy for our children and their children to come.

From part of the Eulogy by Bro. Goh Keat Peng for Betty Young, who rested in the Lord on 8 th December 2009.
[So it must be for a person who knew how to live and who knew how to die. A person who lived her life for others: family, friends and strangers not to mention the birds, dogs and flowers. A person who welcomed poor and rich, a friend of all and sundry whatever their social status, race, culture or station in life. A person who in any and all circumstances invariably found her place and role in life because her life’s purpose was the service of God and whoever He had sent to her. A person whose heart had been with people in need.]
The meaning of life would be what the legacy one leaves behind for people to cheers, honored and exampled.
As Christian, two legacies I perceives should leave behind for all people to reflect on. That is the living out the pure faith in the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and secondly it is the christian walk in the eyes of the neighbourhood.

October Heart

Oct’s heart.

Seeing what have happened over the last few weeks, the Bagan Pinang by-election, the campaigned, the casting, the result.
I came to respond and to reflex on what Malaysia need to move again.

Embracing each other in this multi-cultural, multi-religions pluralistic society.
Embracing differences and distinction, without denial and rejecting others.

I feel that the Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia- “One people One nation” concept may not just be an imperative but a call, A challenge or an indicative .
I do not seek for an “Utopian” society where differences, distinctiveness are totally removed or changed.
But it is a challenge for us all to help and to promote each other to make Malaysia ,a nation where acceptance of each others as ethnic origin, their culture differences, and even to people of all “classes” and also “sexes.
It is just also the consideration of “inclusiveness” and “exclusiveness”.
We must learn what, where, when, how to be color “blind” or “conscious.
Together we can and we must make Malaysia a better home for all our anak-anak and their anak-anak to come.

To all who would fast for the nation

A reflection.
I am hungry, not because there is no food but lacking of love,
I am thirsty, not because there are no water but desire of peace,
I am naked, not because of no clothing but my dignity was taken away
I am homeless, not because I have no shelter but I was marginalize,
I have no friends, not because there are no people but I was ……….
Let uss together make Malaysia a place for all.

Hari Malaysia reflection

My Hari Malaysia reflection
(Based on the called by Evangelist Ray Comfort)
Of many of the questions you will ask yourself today, as the Nation celebrates Hari Malaysia, probably the most important is what can I contribute and see our Nation “repent” in many of the wrongs they have committed. Starting from me, myself.As a Christian, let me just based this reflection by using the Ten Commandment.1. 'You shall have no other gods before Me.'Is God first in your life? Do you love God above all else?
Has our relationship with God turns into just mere religious practices?
Have you loved God with all your heart?
Have you loved humanity as much as you love yourself? You be the judge. 2. 'You shall not make for yourself any graven image.'Have I created a god to suits my likes and dislikes? Or making “him” who looks like me, who sounds like me, thinks like me and does things like me?
This means that we shouldn't make a god to suit ourselves,
Either with our hands or our mind. I am guilty of this often.
3. 'You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.'Have you ever taken God's name in vain? Or event giving a “bad” name of being a Christian.
What kind of Christianity am I portraying?
4. 'Remember the Sabbath Day, to keep it holy.'Have I really taken the Sabbath rest seriously, Rest is trusting in the faithfulness of God and fully reliance in who He is. It is not just time and space, it is the heart.

5. 'Honor your father and your mother.'Have you always honored your parents in a way that's pleasing in the sight of God? Ask Him to remind you of the sins of your youth. You may have forgotten them,
but God hasn't. And He will forgive6. 'You shall not murder.'Jesus warned that if we get angry without cause we are in danger of judgment. If we hate our brother, God calls us a murderer. We can violate God's Law by attitude and intent.7. 'You shall not commit adultery.'Who of us can say that we are pure of heart? Jesus warned, 'You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust after her has committed adultery already with her in his heart.'
The purity of sex has now been “polluted” by so many influences.
We need to return to the very purity of mind, body and soul.
8. 'You shall not steal.'Have you ever taken something that belonged to someone else (irrespective of its value)?
9. 'You shall not bear false witness.'Have you ever told a lie? Then you are a liar. How many lies do you have to tell to be a liar?
Or should we put it in another way, have or dare we telling the truth?
On being fair, just and transparence?
10. 'You shall not covet.'That means we shouldn't desire anything that belongs to another person.
What are the things that I have taken away from other that they have no opportunities
To have it for their own simple right?

The above are some of my reflections as a Christian not just as a church goers, but more of been a citizen of the beloved land. What are the commandments in relating to the rakyat, the land and the constitution?
My prayer and my desire would be, a true repentance come to Malaysia that the nation will move on not just a developed country, but a mature “spiritually and physically” harmonize, and balance nation for all anak bangsa Malaysia.

An immediate reflection

At first I was not really disturb by what has taken place in Shah Alam 23.Because the people and especially the Hindus would react rightly to what were instigated to them.But as our HM responded to the incident, I am shocked; sadden by the attitude and mindset of our national leader.They are out to protect the guilty but condemning the innocents.They have set the mind to make it an issue created by the Selangor PR governing inability. But I have my laugh on the other side, as I ponder on what they do and what were in their mind. How shallow are our leaders mind and their reasoning. What were in the mind of these people, we may guess. What they said and do, people can see.WE are to be very careful, because they are willing, capable to do anything for their cause.

The heart of Sept in chinese

对于轻蔑之罪 上个月因已故赵明福先生的事件,而在自己的“部落客”作出的反应。没想到八月:-这个所谓的“独立感恩月”却也发生那么多的事情,是我们大马的人民需要反省对于“马来西亚”我们的国家,如何看待身为公民;我们的权利;我们的权力;我们的责任。在希腊文里Huperephania,Huperephanos被译为多个意义,而不能以一两个字来形容。这是指人性所犯最严重的一种,也是最基本的一种罪。这是指着人骄傲自大,到了极其狂傲,傲慢非常甚至全然无理的心态。这个字是Huper-在上面+phainesthai-表现自己的人。这简单来说是“在上面来表现自己”。这个字在旧希腊文中通常用于在消极方面。这是指:-当人自视其高,自负非凡,轻视他人,招摇过市。这等人可因他自己因为富有;才干;权力;地位等。就鄙视他人,在街上对行人或个行的人不理不睬。买卖的态度有如专横霸道,口气压人到底。这等人过分的自傲而导致他们的生活在一种思维里存着嚣张的态度,把人和事都目空一切。这等人也可在外面假装谦卑与世无争,心中却是不把任何人放在眼内。他自己拥有的一切,令他不需要他人。这使他把他自己放在一切之上,甚至他认为“每一个人都有一个价码,是可以用钱来“买”的。这个的罪,严重到可以对上帝无理,这等人以经把自己当作是造物者而不是被造的,上帝对他来说只不过是他所“造出来”的,是专门被他“可使用”的“能力”。或者我们可以这么的说:-“除我以外,没有别的”。这是个非常可怕和邪恶的罪。回想当今的世代和国家所发生的事,我们可以说。我们的领袖若不悔改,我们有如正朝向一条毁灭的不归路,是失控于道德和信仰的持守心态与行为。

The Heart of August
After many days of reflection on the late BH Teoh’s incident. I finally come to my own words to describe what was transpire.

Just one word:-Aselgeia.

aselgeia in greek denotes "excess, licentiousness, absence of restraint, indecency, wantonness and lasciviousness.Which indicates a love of sin so reckless and so audacious that a man has ceased to care what God or man thinks of his actions, which contain the idea of shamelessness, outrageousness.[ It simply denotes wrong doing so open and so blatant that it has ceased to have any regard for what anyone may think or feel or say. The characteristics of 'aselgeia.' have wanton and undisciplined action. It is the action of a man who is at the mercy of his passions and his impulses and his emotions, and in whom the voice of calm reason has been silenced by the storms of self will.It has respect neither for the persons nor the rights of anyone else. It is violent, insolvent, abusive, audacious. Any thought and sympathy for the feelings of others has ceased to exist.It is completely indifferent to public opinion and to public decency. A man may well begin to do a wrong thing in secret; at the beginning his one aim an desire may be to hide it from the eyes of men. He may love the wrong thing, and he may even be mastered by it, but he is still ashamed of it. But it isperfectly possible for him to come to the stage when he does openly and blatantly that which he did secretly and in concealment. He may come to a stage of sin when he is so lost to shame that he no longer cares what others see, and what they may say, or what they may think.The terrible thing about Lasciviousness is that it is the act of a character which has lost that which ought to be its greatest defense--its self-respect, and its sense of shame. "Flesh and Spirit," by William Barclay.] The journey for truth, justice, transparency , fairness, freedom, righteousness has just begun. It takes our unity, perseverance and willingness to make it happen.Let the “Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia” come together to make Malaysia a better place for our children and their children to come. yapsir (Henry Yap)

Heart of July

Heart of July

This was the prayer month for me as I was together with hundreds of intercessers at a prayer camp praying for our beloved nation Malaysia.Together with that NECF 40 days of fasting and prayers that are starting on the 22nd this month
While I was at Port Dicson. praying, I was out of touch with the e-world.All I could get was the normal media, and when returned home. I was and I am shock and still is to read what is going on now. Although sadden but chelleng more to pray and just be with people in needs.
Who “ murdered” BH Teo?Is it “Mr. MACC” ?or “ Mr. corruption”?or “ Mr. Politic”?or “ Mr. Intimidate”?I Just hope “Mr. Justice” would not go missing again?and I hope “Mr. Investigate” has not gone off for holidays ?Could we really let BH Teo really rest in peace,would PDRM give the public answers.Let pray the family of BH Teo have peace.May the anak bangsa Malaysia united to-gather and press for the peace for fairness, transparency, justice and truthful investigation.We won’t give up till justice is done.
No matter what the outcome is or are going to be.No more just watching eyes!No more just hear for knowing!No more just talking empty concern!
Could we the church just walk to-gather for one more mail for our LORD.
Could we the church just walk to-gather for the nation and the generation to come.

The heart of June : (Just a Malaysian-yapsir.blogspot)

Maybe now is the time for all us not just talking about changing Malaysia for a better tomorrow. Time has come for us to reflects and ponder how to rescue our beloved nation from “foxes, snakes, scorpions and any other scavengers”. To save us from their lies, cheekiness, nepotism!
If we are to read what is really going in the daily happening, (of course not from the msm) we are facing judiciary unanswerable decision? , laws enforcing officers abusing of powers to arrest and to intimidate any one “man in black”? , and harassing the general public? And religions still an issue or issues that needed to let the public has a resting heart. How about a simple freedom of expression to address in the issues of the general public? Much attention to `clarify in many issues likes the use of the Bahasa words in religion issues and body of the death of people in religion conversion?

We seek for not just a change but an opportunity to let every Malaysian to have a say, a chance to participate in the transform of Malaysia to a place for every Malaysian to say, I am a Malaysian and proud to be a good, a conscious, a concern Malaysian.

We seek not just change it!

WE believed that human right is for anyone and everyone who live in Malaysia who choose the freedom of religion, freedom of speech,
freedom of expression and others, financially clean of bribes , public works accountability to the nation and to the people .!?

And I calling all the rakyat who love our nation our beloved country,
together we must and to do something to save our country we love from the hands and greed’s of the opportunists.
We, can be the 3rd force and the anak bangsa Malaysia.
To all bangsa anak Malaysia. Let us pray and do something!
Hidup rakyat Malaysia.

Time has come for me to stop for a while to ponder what have been going on the last two weeks.

I spent a litter more time over the webs by watching what is going on in Perak and our Nation.

To some,it causes them- tears;to some- anger;to others may have other feeling of digusting.

As for me I was sadden but laughing all the ways by watching monkeys,foxes and snake doing their best to take over the respected Dewan.Just a flesh over my mind of the old book-Animal Farm.(The content of the book may not similar with the incident,but I just borrowed it's title.)

Democracy have now becoming demo-crazy.

We may have diffrents views on the who is the rightful government,but judging from the comments of the ADUN,you will know who are the disgusting one.

Black colour has now become "Fear Factor"to Malaysian? or to the BN ? or to our Blue Boys?

As I continue this morning as the Parliament opens with another scenario of mockery of the people's representatives,espeacially those in cabinet.

From top of the rulling power to the enforcer of laws are just full of stories that make the nation known to other.

Malaysia needs changes,and must change!
Changes may take time,guts,effort,willingness and disire.
It is my prayer,my hope.That all and every Malaysian must participate to makes this change become a reality.
Saya anak bangsa Malaysia.

主内弟兄姐妹们:       几年来,全球数以百万计的信徒在全球祷告日这一天同心祷告,认罪悔改。在2008年五月十一 日, 总共有来自214 个国家的信徒参与全球祷告日的祷告运动。他们恳切的祈祷,为世界更新转化的呼求,在体育场,广场,社区中心和家居四处回响,这些祷告蕴有大能,能更新转化我们的世界,并使列国充满神的荣耀。       在2009年五月三十一日,神再度呼召来自东西南北的列国百姓来与神同工,参与这个祷告之旅。神那威严的大能正在全地运行,他正挑战我们在这祷告之旅中与他同行。这个祷告之旅的目的不是为了我们,乃是为了这个渴望经历到神的荣耀和他关怀的爱的世界;也是为了回应神的话语,历代志下7 章14节‘这称为我名下的子民,若是自卑,祷告,寻求我的面,转离他们的恶行,我必从天上垂听,赦免他们的罪,医治他们的地’。愿他听我们的祷告,愿他饶恕我们的罪,医治我们的地。       我谨此谦卑地邀请你联同其他千百万信徒一起参与全球祷告日,同心寻求神的面,凭信心相信在2009 年全球220个国家每一个国家都会有信徒一起来为他们的国家站在破口代求。       愿主的荣耀彰显!             葛理翰×伯尔    全球祷告日 主席       (也有时翻译成葛理培)    “时候将到,我必将万民万族聚来,看见我的荣耀。”(以赛亚书66:18)   

一个全球祷告日——2009年5月31日    “五旬节到了,门徒都聚集在一处。”(徒 2:1)       一个悔改和祷告的呼召。2000 年破晓之晨,在南非开普敦许多信徒感受到神正在呼召他们通过悔改和祷告寻求他。并要他们在全国各地召集信徒,聚集为他们的城镇和国家同心祷告。    很快的,类似的祷告聚会(他们在同一天聚会—在整个非洲到处涌现。在几年后,这个运动传遍世界各地,这就成就了在2005 年5月15日也就是当年的五旬节主日的全球祷告日。)传遍全球,在跟下来的几年,来自各不同宗派的基督徒都在五旬节这一天聚集来回应这个祷告与悔改的呼召。这个祷告运动不断地扩大和深化,有的在大体育场聚会,有的在家庭小组聚集,有的在小镇的广场进行,许多地区都有24 小时不停的祷告。这祷告运动成功地促进了教会的合一,同心为基督更大的荣耀与列国的祝福祷告。       继续强化祷告运动。在2009年五月三十一日,全球基督徒将再度联合同心到神面前悔改祷告。另一个全球祷告日将在2010年五月二十三日举行。   10 天引至1天之后跟进90天:   我们从初期教会诞生的三个阶段得到启示:10 天的恒常祷告直到五旬节, 一天的公开祷告聚会,全城的百姓都可以目睹;跟着的是多日的蒙祝福的日子。所以全球祷告日运动也有三个部分:   10 天的恒常祷告:2009 年五月二十一日到三十日:   从五月二十一日开始, 数以百万计的基督徒将以不同的方法昼夜不停祷告十天,直到五旬日。    
 1天的全球祷告日:2009 年五月三十一日:   在五旬节主日,全世界几乎每一个国家都会有基督徒聚集祷告,他们有的在家中小组聚会祷告,有的则在大体育馆或其他公众场合聚会。      90 天的祝福:2009 年六月一日到八月二十九日: (和马来西亚四十天禁食祷告同期结束-庆典)     正如在首个圣灵降临的五旬节之后,被更新转化的基督徒献身服事神,成为神回应他们祷告的器皿,使他们的社区也因此得到更新转化。全球祷告日运动期望牧者,教会,宣教机构,职场领袖能够联合起来,为他们所处的社区带来实际的,更新转化的祝福。    同行者:-叶挺隆牧师

We really need people who has a mind for the rakyat

As I was on Malasia Today,I came upon the post on the comment by Zambri.
My inmediate respond was,Who makes the people walks much more miles? Isn't the be-end took away the vehicles for a better Malaysia tomorrow from the rakyat? They forced the people down casted and saying to them "lets'walk one more miles"! Don't tell YB Siva not to turn the Perak Assembly into a circus. But how can one allows monkeys,foxes,snakes,dogs to run the assembly of the rakyat?
