I was born and raised in a christian family. To me at that time Christianity was about going to church on the weekends and the rest of my days I kept on living my own life. Jesus was only for in the weekends. When I finished my university days I started to backslide and eventually had no passion for God in my entire 4 years when I was studying. It was my driest point of my life. I was part of the world and doing things of my own.
When I finished my degree, I started working in KL. CKRM was set up in Malacca at that time and my family was already attending CKRM Malacca. They told me many things about what God was doing in CKRM and it was very different and exciting. I was a bit skeptical and did not understand about the ministry that was because I was living in sins and my mind had not been renewed.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will - Romans12:2
My parents told me there was the Roar of the Lion of Judah, Holy Laughter, Prophetic Dance, Manifestation of the Spirit and many more. I had never heard or seen this before and was doubtful but the thing I noticed was I could see my family's life started to change for the better, so it was good. After much prayers and invitation I decided to pay a visit to CKRM in Malacca. I felt it was a different church, not a mediocre church. They preached about things normal churches would never or seldom talked about like the Holy Spirit, the gifts, supernatural, sign and wonders, anointing, holiness. This somehow excited me. I decided to go and find a church in KL. I began to read books, sermons about Holy Spirit and to understand Him more since I had little knowledge and experience about Him even though I had being going to church since I was small. My hunger for God grew.
I began to ask God so that I could be sensitive to Him after seeing my family members were all sensitive to God. It gave me a holy hunger for more of Him. One day my dad called me and ask me if I wanted to receive the Baptism of Fire from God. I had never heard about this Fire until I came to CKRM but it was written in the bible " He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. - Matthew 3:11
So my dad prayed for me through the phone from Malacca. I was a bit doubtful and nothing really happened. So he prayed for me for 2 or 3 times and hang up. I was not satisfied and I told God that if I could not receive anything I would go back in the weekend to CKRM Malacca. So I called my father again and this time and when he prayed for me I felt like something stirring in my belly and my whole body felt like in an electricity and I started to tremble, but I felt very happy and I felt God's presence in my body. That was when I knew the Holy Spirit lived in me and my life began to change. It is amazing how God can even touch me through the phone. This shows God can still do great things in us.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." (Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV)
Ever since God touches my heart my life has been transformed. Addiction and ungodly lifestyle were all broken. I'm more aware of the presence of God now and always guarding my heart, mind and actions and even if I fall into sin the Holy Spirit will convict me and I will repent fast. The fruits of the Spirit is starting to grow.(Galatians 5:22). Christianity to me now is not boring but full of fun, exciting, purposeful and powerful. I'm learning more things especially on spiritual things in CKRM because God is spirit ...those who are led by the Spirit of God are son of God. (Rom 8:14)
Thank you Lord for your Grace and Love poured out for me. All Praises, Worship, and Power belongs to You and You only!
