To many people brought up on the modern horror diet of Nightmare on Elm Street and Poltergeist, Halloween is par for the course, cool, and even fun. Dressing up in ghoulish costumes, going around the neighbourhood to trick-or-treat and sharing horror stories on October 31 of every year is considered harmless fun, a time to let one’s hair down.
However, as Christians, we should be aware that Halloween has pagan roots. For the ancient Celts – the predecessors of the Welsh, Scottish and Irish peoples – October 31 was the first day of the new year called Samhain. According to the Irish sagas, which were penned sometime between the 9th and 12th centuries, Samhain was the day that many mundane chores were done: crops were harvested and farmsteads secured. October 31 also marked the end of fall and the start of winter, which was a time of increasing darkness, death of vegetation and the harvest; all this contributed to the symbolism of the day, and in turn, its power.
The confrontation between Elijah and king Ahab in 1 Kings 18 is organized around a theme on restoration of the covenantal relationship between Yahweh and the people of Israel. Through the entire narrative, Elijah was on the mission of calling the people of God to repent as they had “forsaken the commandments of the LORD and have followed Baals” (v. 18) and to return to the worship of the LORD and to follow Him wholeheartedly.
The narrative in 1 Kings 18 also forms a pattern and characteristics of a forerunner ministry. As we study carefully, we will discover several unique patterns and characteristics of a forerunner ministry.
The Sermon on the Mount is the “constitution” of God’s Kingdom. It not only describes the core reality of the Kingdom of God but also defines what it means to be a true believer of God and the Kingdom character that a true believer should possess.
Through a guided reading schedule and monthly meetings, participants will come together to spur and challenge one another to live out the True Kingdom Lifestyle.
Come join us on this journey to lay an unshakeable foundation in Christ!

Our Christian faith is more than the “do”s and the “don’t”s but about becoming the person that God desires (Deut. 10:12 – 13; 2 Chron. 16:9; Isa. 66:2; Matt. 22:37 – 38). It is more than an act but a response to who God is! I am incapable of loving God passionately and wholeheartedly by my own sheer will and desire (Zech. 4:6). I am passionate for Jesus because He is firstly passionate for me.
There are three keys to having passion for Jesus…
