My memory with you all is still very fresh and I feel like it was yesterday.
If any one wants to come to Melbourne please do not hesitate to let me know.
Wishing you all a very “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”
Aung Lwin (S.F)
I would like to take this opportunity to share Christmas message as follows.
Why Merry Christmas?
Everyone can choose freely to believe in any religion or believe in nothing on earth. Nothing is wrong with it.
But the truth is that no religious leader (founder of a religion) can promise or guarantee to his or her followers to get to heaven after death.
No one can save himself or herself to get to heaven by doing good deeds alone.
Because everyone is a sinner through words, thought and deeds according to the standard of the invisible and the most powerful creator (God).
Because God is Holy and God is perfect.
Buddha can not save anyone to get to heaven.
Mohammad can not save anyone to get to heaven.
Kwan yin, Kwan cong can not save anyone to get to heaven either because they all are human beings like us and all human beings are born with sin which is also known as debt.
They all were dead and their bodies were either buried or cremated and never came back to the earth again to prove that they were alive and live forever.
This is the fact according to their doctrines.
But in the world history, only one who was born of virgin woman, performed miracles that no human religious founder could ever perform, promised that by believing in Him and confessing the sin will have everlasting life in heaven.
He was killed on the cross but bodily resurrected three days later.
eHeHrHe appeared to his disciples and about 500 followers for forty days and he ascended to heaven in front of them.
His name is “Jesus” who came to the world as a human being from the heaven.
That was the historic event which happened about 2000 years ago. God sent Jesus to the world to save the souls of the sinners to heaven after death.
This is the reason for celebrating Christmas on earth every year to remind people that Good News had arrived on earth which guaranteed the way to heaven and to make peace with God.
Good News which Jesus brought to the world is that we sinners can get to heaven after this life on earth.
Everybody is born of sin (debt) so after death everyone’s soul will see God face to face regardless of believe in God or not when people are alive on earth. (Death is separation of Soul and the body. Soul leaves the physical body so the body is dead and remained on earth but the soul will never die and will be in front of God for judgment).
Every soul has only two destinations, either enjoying forever in Heaven or suffering forever in Hell.
Jesus’ suffering on the cross and His blood shedding on the cross is to wash away the human’s sin or debt. This is the reason God sent Jesus to the world about 2000 years ago.
His bodily resurrection and ascension to heaven proved that He has overcome the death. So whosoever believes in Him will die bodily on earth but the soul will have eternal life with Him and God in heaven forever and ever.
So whoever believes in Him will have Love, peace, joy and hope on earth.
So for me and my family as believers, “life on earth is a gift from God and looking forward to getting to the most enjoyable place and seeing face to face our Lord, God after this life as we have been relationship with Him by two ways communicating with Him daily on earth through prayer.”
“Words of God from the Holy Bible as follows.
၂၇ၿငိမ္သက္ျခင္းကို သင္တို႔၌ ငါထားခဲ့၏။ ငါ၏ၿငိမ္သက္ျခင္းကို သင္တို႔အား ငါေပး၏။ ေလာကီသားတို႔ေပးသကဲ့သို႔ ငါေပးသည္မဟုတ္။ သင္တို႔ စိတ္ႏွလံုးပူပန္ျခင္း၊ စိုးရိမ္တုန္လႈပ္ျခင္း မရွိေစႏွင့္။
27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
၃၃သင္တို႔သည္ ငါ့ကိုအမွီျပဳ၍ ၿငိမ္သက္ျခင္းရွိေစျခင္းငွါ ဤစကားကို ငါေဟာေျပာၿပီ။ သင္တို႔သည္ ေလာက၌ ဆင္းရဲဒုကၡကို ခံရၾကလိမ့္မည္။ သို႔ေသာ္လည္း မစိုးရိမ္ၾကႏွင့္။ ငါသည္ ေလာကကို ေအာင္ၿပီဟုမိန္႔ေတာ္မူ၏။
33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
(Note: John is one of the twelve disciples as Jesus chose him and following Him for three years and John wrote a book about Jesus which is called “Gospel of John” in the Bible).

Acts 1: Prologue
1 The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,
2 until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen,
3 to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.
(Note: The book called “Acts” in the Bible was written by Medical Doctor Luke after Jesus was ascended to heaven through thorough investigation as Jesus’ mother “Mary” and Jesus’ disciples were alive and with him about no later than A.D.60.He also wrote about Jesus life and teaching in “Gospel of Luke” in the Bible before he wrote the book of “Acts” so he wrote Acts 1: Prologue1 The former account I made,...)
