Battle Log of Operation 513 for Toowong on Tuesday May 31st, 2022 from 1330 – 1500

It was a very windy day. I actually had a very full day. Bible study in the morning for CFC members, then I rushed to meet a Pastor from Sydney who was the guest speaker in a forum organized by BST. We clicked on the phone chatting over an hour so I just made use of the gap of one hour to meet him at BST before re-joining our regular outreach. As usual, the team of three were all there serving the Lord under His guidance and predestined election of people for us to meet and share. Today theme for me actually is people from Christian family all have an illusion that they are readily a Christian by family line relations. All of them failed my diagnostic test that they simply are no different from non-believer not knowing at all our salvation is completely the redemptive work of Jesus. Another similarity was many of them are with Hong Kong connection. It is also a sign that more and more people are fleeing from Honk Kong for the free world. To me, there is no real free world in any earthly kingdom unless you are in Christ that through His love and strength , we can really overcome any fear and anxiety to have true eternal and inner peace in Christ. Recap below are the battle log of Hung and Winnie: -

Battle Log of Hung:

1 ) The first person I could get a successful approach after 3 previous rejections was a lady from Taiwan. She found the gospel sensible and logical and appeared receptive. Pray for God's follow up work.

2 ) John a local Aussie with a friend but he went off for a phone so only John listened to the full gospel before the bus came.

3 ) Then God kicked off a series of Hongkong connection. Sirius is a Chinese from HKG and claimed himself a Christian, upon my first diagnosis question if he has full assurance of salvation, he said he should be having 100% certainty but admitted that he is not yet perfect, so the actual feeling is still not sure how God will accept him a not yet perfect person. It proves that he has a certain level of biblical teaching but still falling short of understanding God's threefold full salvation package deal. He knew accepting Jesus as savior readily grant him the free gift of eternally life. But he did not know this is the first step or the past deliverance to save us from eternal death punishment by the grace and blood of Jesus covering our sins so in God's eyes we are justified and was right to be reconciled with God regaining the lost heaven citizenship. What he did not know that it is only a change of our eternal identify in Christ. Our life is yet to be transformed back to perfection both physically and emotionally. Yet on basis of Christ's redemptive work, God will guarantee to make us back to perfection through the work of the Holy Spirit, as it is the ultimate requirement of God to ask all His people to be perfect for the eternal home. So, all Christians after conversion till we died, we are bound to be not yet perfect but just on the way toward this target. So basing on Christ ‘work and God promise, we should have 100% assurance of eventual deliverance from the bondage of sin. Sirius indicated he is attending a Christian n Group but not Power to Change, I guess very likely he is a member of the Living Spring Chinese Church based in Westend but also active in UQ. May God bless their ministry.

4 ) Then came Charles a Pseudo ABC from HKG at age of 7 and also from Christian family background. Through the diagnosis test, quickly knew he have no idea of Jesus salvation work. So I tried my best to go through the whole gospel message with him in the limited time before the bus arrived, which he was very thankful for it.

5 ) The Maggie a rare lady from Myanmar and also from a Christian family. She has all the same problem of illusion, thinking she is automatically a Christian by birth in Christian family. I ended up fighting against time of the bus arrival to go through the gospel with her.

6 ) Then , I caught up with a girl with haired dyed to golden yellow color. Exhale, is from China and claimed she has listened to the gospel once but cannot explain what she learned from the tract. So as well I wasted no time to share the full gospel to here again. 中國聽過再聴

7 ) Last, Winnie asked me to answer Justin’s request for Church in St Lucia. I did and followed up on chatting with him. He is from a catholic Christian family but again he knows very little about salvation. I should praise God for his heart to look for church but I still spent all my remaining time to share him the full gospel and hopefully let him realize he is not yet a real Christian but with the heart to search for the Biblical truth, he should be right on the way get saved by making his last step of faith to trust in Jesus and Jesus alone by grace through faith. Amen

Battle log of Winnie:

31/5/22 Toowong

感謝 神賜與今天陽光普照,雖然很大風,但是讓我們團隊在温暖的陽光下傳福音。

今天不知道是學生比较遲來等巴士,或者是巴士來得频密。考驗我今天需要傳講得很快的福音。見證都不夠時間,巴士到來。

1. 澳洲男士,David。當我講完福音,巴士來到。他説會想想基督信仰。

2. 中國少女,Jannell。當我講完福音,巴士到達。

3. 中國少女,Shin 仙。也是當我講完福音,巴士來到。

4. 澳洲少女,Josephine。又是當我講完福音,巴士到達。

5. 澳洲青年,Joshua。他聽過很多不同的基督教議。但他不明白真正的基督信仰。他問及穆斯林,天主教,摩門教等等。我解释给他,我與他談及一段很長的時間,關於這些不同的教議,直到巴士來到。我解释基督信仰是三一神,聖父,聖子及聖靈。聖父創造天地萬物,聖子(耶穌基督)祂為救贖我們,死在十字架上,三天後復活。聖靈:當我們施洗後,祂就住在我們心裏,引導我們應走的路,及提醒我們對與錯。所以願意歸信主後,一定要施洗,除去罪,聖靈才可以進入我們心裏。

6. 印度女士,Lisa。當她聽完福音後,她説會想清楚基督的信仰。

7. 中國蒙古來的青年,Henry。初時不願意聽,後來我講及無論你有甚麽信仰,每人必有一死,死後必有審判。不信者已经被定罪,我给他單張看看,什麽是罪。看他有感動,于是傳福音给他,講完,巴士到達。

8. 澳洲青年,Dustin。他説上週已经有人傳福音给他。所以我不再講福音,于是我問他,決定信靠耶稣基督嗎?他正在想着這問题。我説我們不知道明天將會有什麽事情發生,但如果信了主,就可以完全交托给主。我提議他去教會聽聽主的話語,當你完全明白後,才決定是否需要受洗歸入主的名下。我們一定要聖潔,聖靈才會進入我們心裏。他問我附近有教會嗎?我知道附近有一 Toowong Baptist Church ,但我不知道地址。Johnny 剛同一青年倾談,關牧師來到,我就將這青年人交给關牧師。

9. 澳洲少女,Donna。當她聽完福音後,她説會認真的想清楚。

10. 中國少女,Olivia。當她聽完福音後,她説會到教會尋求更多真理。

感謝 神的帶領。願今天聽到福音的人仕,找到適合他們的教會,一步一步的跟随主。阿們!感謝讚美主!
