Sharing something what God has impressed upon my heart.
God cannot force you to do things against your will. However, He allows situations to come your way. So that you may be enlightened to know how weak you are without Him. He prepares a process of transformation waiting for your response, and waits for you to jump into the flow, and convert this awareness into His glory.
If your relationship with the Word is intimate, you will be able to hear His voice, prompting your steps, establishing your thoughts, just as He said you would recognise Him, “My sheep hears my voice.”
So much treasures buried beneath the biblical words that you and i read. Step up your journey with Him. Stop scratching the surface, start digging. Your next step in life can be inspired by the nuggets of truth you discover. Reason why treasures are buried is simple. It is a test of your heart, a display of your innermost intention, subsequently, a mean or indication that God judges us.
Can an answer be an answer if there is no question? Asking the right question is a form of digging.( Ask me about Transformation-Class) The Holy Spirit teaches and reminds you the Way, the Truth and the Life. He helps you make sense of spiritual wisdom.
We need one another to function effectively as a body of Christ. Thanks for attending the online meeting. If you have attended, with God’s permission, you will be receiving inner circle access such as YFBRC early access to new features & event invites.
IF YFBRC has helped you, in anyway, do not keep this to yourself. Ask God to show you who will benefit from the work of YFBRC, and invite them. Time is short as mentioned in Psalm 90:12 and Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
Take action as God would want you to …after this full stop.

Hi YFBRC 2.0 community,
Pastor Bil Wilson recently shared about an old man who was on the same flight as he, who had no ability to feed himself during dinner time. Pastor Bill Wilson realised this when he saw the old man staring at the plate of dinner. So he helped to feed the old man.
Although you may have the solution in front of you, you may have no idea or how to grab the solution. You have to deal with the pattern of this world that is so ingrained, and so in control of your mind. You need to seek help.
If you, who have been reading the Word frequently, think that YFBRC is the solution for a big group of Christians out there, who find it near impossible to start reading the Word, would you not become the hands, that feed them just as Pastor Bill Wison fed the old man, with the solution? You are the bridge that completes/ makes the plan of God happens. The missing puzzle of God’s bigger picture. Sieze this opportunity just as pastor Bill Wilson did.
If you are thankful of this journey, do not keep YFBRC to yourself. Invite people whom God is bringing to your attention.
Lastly, coaching you, without feedback and meeting you, is an incomplete picture of a successful coaching. It is not even called coaching. Have you scheduled your appoinment to meet me? Fyi, silence is an important element of a successful coaching session. So do not worry or be of concern if you do not have anything to say. Coaching allows silence in between conversations. i have extended the appointments till next week. Let this be a launch pad of many great things to come. i look forward to hearing from you.
for those who have shown up for the appointment, thank you for the positive feedback.
▪️i trust that you enjoyed your time being coached for the 1st time.
▪️i pray that you will rise to the occasion, be transformed by the renewing of your mind during and after this coaching session.
▪️Isn’t time passed by so fast when you are being coached? Perhaps, you wish for more time, just as i eagerly desire for more time listening to you.
▪️i will try my best to schedule and give you(ONLY for this community) FREE 30-min personal coaching every 6-month interval.
▪️If you desire more in between these 6 months, you may hire me as your personal & trained life coach.
▪️If you wish to know more how coaching helps you with clarity and move you forward in life(walk with God, personal, family, relationships, work, etc), waste not the opportunity, book your appointment NOW! Limited to ONLY 4 days; see schedule.
🔴 You are under no obligation to hire me, but this appointment is NECESSARY for your benefits, if you wish to stay registered in this community. Unless otherwise, this is YFBRC assessment of your interest and seriousness in seeing yourself grow and be transformed.
i look forward to materialising God’s plan for this community to fruition. If you are with me on this aspiration, stay engaged to YFBRC activities. i have much to share and aspire to see every person in this community being transformed by the Holy Spirit.

Hi YFBRC 2.0 community,
💡While digging deep into the Word with my family yesterday’s evening, i discovered these amazing findings from John 9:39 & 41. Then, He linked them to Matthew 28:19 & 20. (Read in NLT).
THESE NEW DISCIPLES…
WHO ARE THEY?
In YFBRC, we coach you to finish reading the whole Bible. In T class, we show you how the dots are connected.
————— Have you read the Word? —————
▪️Have you booked your appointment with me? 🙂
Without your accountability verse, i do not know how to coach you.
… it is a 🚩.
For those who post, i still would like to make time to meet with you. Please suggest a time if you cannot find it in the revised slots.
💁🏻♀️ This appointment helps you to understand if you are in the correct place, share the same vision, objective and mission, or if you need help.
💁🏻♂️ BUSYNESS, slowly but surely, destroys relationships. Even if you are busy with Godly activities, God is not impressed, IF you are not building an intimate relationship with the Word. i learnt it the hard way. Blind but now i see.
This pandemic is a wake up call of what is coming. Do not fall back to pre-lock down’s way of doing things. Adversities should make you and i stronger, … and wiser.
i believe you are not thinking that i have nothing better to do. If you do, i am sorry to say that you may be missing what this outreach is all about. During the early year, i had been criticised for hiding behind the screen. i know the time was not right then. Now, i am revealing myself(as much i disliked the idea), on screen, and even start a 1 on 1 meet up to help members. Negative criticism is unavoidable no matter what i do, where there is human, but i trust the process, & the God of higher dimension than our 3 dimensional world.
Human… don’t you think is a strange creation?
💁🏻♂️ If you agree with me, book an appointment with me now. i love to connect with you whether you post or not post your verse. 😊
PS:i notice not all WhatsApp has STATUS. Old method is used.
DATE: 21ST AUGUST 2020
▪️🖐️ more days to make an appointment with your coach.
▪️Don’t miss this opportunity of packed 30 mins of asking, free coaching, learning & sharing.
▪️If you are shy/timid, this is the opportunity to apply and engage the Word. This verse was quoted when we met for the 1st time online.
💡For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. 2 Tim 1:7 (NLT)
▪️If you stay with YFBRC, we teach you how to take every opportunity to engage the Word. Gone are the days of reading or listening only. It is time to take your journey with Him to the next level. 📈
▪️Schedule an appoinment now. Do not procrastinate.
💁🏻♀️ Please refill the form if you have not keyed in the required detail. Thanks.
HAVE YOU READ THE WORD?
DATE: 20TH AUGUST 2020
🙋🏻♂️Yippee! Just successfully completed a 30-min video conference call with a member. Meeting for the 1st time online with someone whom i have never met. Sentiments are mutual. Being an introvert, myself and “doing this sort of thing” for the 1st time, THIS IS A WIN!✌️
💁🏻♂️ i look forward to meeting more from the community and, seeing the calendar being populated, with appointments, with you, on a 1-on-1 basis.
💁🏻♂️ Take this as part of the process for personal growth, if you wish. 🙂
DATE: 19TH AUGUST 2020
… Many place a full stop here.
Trapped into oblivion & into the patterns of this world? A faint and flickering light deep inside each of us struggles to shine and tell ourselves that this is an incomplete sentence.
Could this be a full sentence…?
At some point, it has to go from being highlighted in your Bible, to being written on your heart,… to being transformed in your lifestyle.
Not just reading, are you living out the Word ? Interested to know how?
Thanks for scheduling an 1 on 1 30-min appoinment with me. i do not have to do this but somehow, show up & trust the process seem to be the recurring instruction. i have to meet not just one, but many. 😅
i will be WhatsApp video calling you on the date & time that you have chosen. We will take opportunity to ask, share, & learn, mutually, from our casual 1st chat. EMMANUEL. 😊
DATE: 18TH AUGUST 2020
God reminded me of the story of Gideon. Though he was busy with his work in the field, God called Gideon for a mission, to lead a battalion of armies. He had to downsize the number of armies a few times, to the final 300, to fight the huge army of Midianites. i believe Gideon was struggling to make sense of God’s war strategy. Although it did not equate, he trusted God’s divine process.
YFBRC is about engagement and relationship. Looks like we are coming to another crossroad, community YFBRC 2.0.
As mentioned, please click SCHEDULE A 30-MIN APPOINTMENT button, choose from these dates when you can meet me to chat about your reading progress. If you choose not to respond to this post, your membership will automatically cease. Thank you for your kind cooperation. The difference between you and the armies of Gideon is, they allow the leadership of Gideon to decide, but in here, you are given a choice. No obligation, but i hope you choose progress, relationship that builds you up, and moves you forward, esp. in a time when the world is going through such an unprecedented global difficult season.

Sermon after sermon, Bible study after Bible study, online class after online class, Sunday after Sunday, do you chase after information, rather than transformation?
Do not be trapped in the cycle of knowledge. What do you plan to do with the information?
Do you only settle for being an ankle-deep / knee-deep Christian?
Afraid of going deeper?
Hebrew word Shema, שְׁמַע,. is listen and respond.
Listen – respond = information
Listen + respond = transformation
We coach people on Word APPLICATION, how to ENGAGE and make the Word ALIVE and RELEVANT to their daily life.
▪️Invite someone to read with you.
▪️Newly published article talks about prayer that pleases God. (DiSCOVERiES).
▪️Message me if you are interested In TRANSFORMATION CLASS.
Should you need help, please do not hesitate to ask.

Hi YFBRC 2.0 Community,
If you want to know what happened to me yesterday evening, read about how God did a stress test (reminds me of material stress test during my university day)… ON ME… ON THE SPOT while coaching and discipling my cell group on the biblical perspective of STRESS.
HAVE YOU READ THE WORD? 🤗
Oh yes, in this article, you will find out, among other valuable things,
▪️whether i pass or fail the test.
▪️and learn a model/mindset/ process flow chart that i use to hack STRESS.
It was a behind the scene situation that my wife and i faced. Not even the members of my cell groups knew what was going on. My wife did not return to join the online cell group gathering after fetching my kid from tuition.
Have a blessed weekend. 😊
DATE: 6TH AUGUST 2020
If you want to be intentional to do God’s will, please do not jump into conclusion, find out why prayer is not emphasised in YFBRC. It will be featured in my next article in DiSCOVERiES. Controversial? Perhaps to many, but not to me, in fact, it is something that i strongly believe, something i have to unlearn that prayer is not the 1st thing i go to if you truly want to follow to follow God’s will precisely. Prayer is not merely our communication with God. It is blended into our relationship with Him.
If you are interested, Click DiSCOVERiES to subscribe. How to register? (Please do not hesitate to message me).

HAVE YOU READ THE WORD ?

To keep our one-on-one online meeting productive, here are our agenda when we touch base.
Can you share with me about your reading progress, obstacles and victories/ notable changes?
What do you want to achieve from joining YFBRC?
Any change you want to see in YFBRC?
Stay tuned for appointments.
YFBRC is not perfect, but pursuing perfection for God’s glory – Matthew 5:48 (NLT). YFBRC makes continuous improvement effort,
to promote reading the Word,
to simplify and providing an intuitive user experience without compromising its original and broader objective,. i.e., transformation through a relationship with the Word.
to clarify the practices of YFBRC through latest FAQs revision (ones with asterisk*), i hope interested parties can gain a better understanding when you share YFBRC.

i have received a verse this morning from a reader. It has inspired me to write a short poem ….
Proverbs 5:21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
——————– ALONE YET NOT ALONE
How SHOULD i respond to this verse?
The eyes of God see,
not only tangible & physical matters,
but intangible & abstract things like man’s ways, his being & doing.
Clearly visible to Him.
God thinks, and examines every decision that man takes.
Knowing who He is, i am alone, yet not alone.
i am judged even in private.
Forgive me, Lord, for thinking i have a private space anywhere in this world.
No one knows, no one sees.
For allowing my willful flesh to deceive me into thinking i can shut you out.
Your omnipresence lights up every dark corner in my world.
… even in my heart.
——————– For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Hebrews 4:12 (NLT) ——————–
Hi again, A VERY BLESSED MORNING to YFBRC 2.0 community,
If you have greatly benefited from your relationship with YFBRC. Please do not, selfishly, keep it to yourself. Invite and share it with others. Encourage them to join YFBRC.
When you do this, you are making disciples, fulfilling Mat 28:19. Overdue but never too late. you are saving souls, believers and unbelievers for the after-life. you are God’s fellow worker in Christ, for His Kingdom, a part of God’s big picture of transformation.
Which type of YFBRC 2.0 member are you? You believe in active engagement. Grow and be transformed with me together, with YFBRC 2.0 community, and be excited about the things of God together. Do nothing, just receive (YFBRC 1.0). God has just given me an analogy. Are you the Moses generation or the Joshua generation?
——————– In the month of August, with God’s permission, i plan to do 2 things. You may be my accountability partners. allocate time with you individually, coaching, listening to you on your journey, your progress, aspiration that God has for you in the coming days, weeks, and months ahead. If you want to continue with our relationship, something has to change.
Be my partners to actively promoting and recruiting new members. If you are convinced that your association with YFBRC has helped you to reach new heights, and YFBRC has much in stored to equip you for your continual journey with Him, your words of mouth are super instrumental for new readers who eventually turn into doers of the Word.
i always believe that, where there is a will, there is always a way… the rest are excuses. If you look for God, you WILL FIND HIM. If you need help, you will look for it, no matter how narrow is the gate. Stop complaining about life, and start making a difference. i see opportunity to excel in every situation, even in difficult time such as this pandemic. A transformed mind embraces growth mentality. Do you know where does it come from?
The VERY BASIC requirement of a YFBRC member is, he or she MUST be a daily reader of the Word. If you are not doing this, or benefited from YFBRC, may God help you. Perhaps, YFBRC may not be a place you are looking for. Do not waste time on things that are not benefiting you in your spiritual growth.
Perhaps, you are ignoring or underestimating the urgency, therefore, not desperate enough? i do not know about you, but i am in a race against time, sharing the same sentiment as our time-conscious and task-oriented Lord, Jesus Christ, who said,
We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work.
John 9:4 (NLT) (THRILLED!!! Mentioned in my ebook, and it appeared again in the online class i conducted last week. The Holy Spirit is reminding me again about how short our time is!!! )
If you are interested to get more involved, contact me regarding the Journey, DiSCOVERiES and Transformation. i will help you with the registration. Or you can send the next invitation post out to people whom God has brought to your attention. Thereafter, we trust God’s divine process to play out in our lives, not based on our expectation, but His will be done. i look forward to receiving your response, as you take a step of faith in making a lasting/ sustainable change in your life.
HAVE YOU READ THE WORD ?
NOTE : i have collated all past(since the inception of YFBRC 2.0) announcements, reminders, encouragement, short articles such as the above-mentioned into one link, so that you, or new members can refer to it in future. Click here …
i will be very happy to share with you how YOUR FRIENDLY BIBLE READING COACH(YFBRC) has changed my life. It is about having biblical mindset/transformation through a relationship with the Word.

P. R. I. M. E. —————————— Q U E S T I O N ——————————
19. Does God love us, human beings, only when we believe in God ? If YES, verse?
DATE: 2ND AUGUST 2020
Hi YFBRC 2.0 Community,
One day, my family and i had a conversation, and it went something like this…
: Mom, some people like to gossip.
: Yes, that’s human being’s bad behaviour.
: Emmm… mom, sometimes, i do that too without realising it.
: It is good to know that you are reflecting by looking yourself in the mirror.
: WELL DONE, daughter. You have just done a self-reflection. That is a sign of maturity. Gossiping is human being’s bad behaviour, but our reason as human being should not downplay the sinful nature of gossiping. This realisation ought to prompt us to respond, align and pursue the things of God.
But you, Timothy, are a man of God; so run from all these evil things. Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. 1 Timothy 6:11 (NLT)
Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. 2 Timothy 2:22 (NLT)
TRANSFORMATION is starting on 3rd and 4th Aug 2020. If you want to be transformed in your thinking, this is it. This class is only for those you who read the Word regularly.
Among many things you will learn from this class, how powerful coaching questions can shift your perspective, perhaps, other eye-opening verse-based answer as the Holy Spirit reveals to individual. Sign up now. Classes will start only when there is a quorum of 8.
Note : Please note that YFBRC reading planner has not changed. Please follow as previous. FREE or paid services, please do not hesitate to contact me for help. i am still waiting for some of you to submit your entry. i cannot help you, even as much i want to, if you do not contact me or help yourself. Thanks to those who have started after contacting me.
It is a race. No one can run THE RACE for you. If you subscribe to DiSCOVERiES i will share with you more about THE RACE and how God has arranged this fascinating discovery and how He confirmed it. https://www.charleskwtan.com/friendlyauthor/#my_discoveries
Have you read the Word?
P. R. I. M. E. —————————— Q U E S T I O N ——————————
18. What is the purpose of your existence?
What is the reason God puts you on this earth, in your neighbourhood, in your working place, in your situations, in your relationships, even in this community ? —————————- Yes, if you know the answer, start asking yourself the next question, “Am i …?”
If you are not sure of the verse-based answer, try posting your answer to me.
There is only one answer to this question. The answer i am looking for does not mean it fits me or anyone else. It means that it has a specific purpose recorded in God’s Word, and i am in agreement with His. Many tried but not many got it right 100%.
The answer is like a vision. But many gave mission statements.
A very important question that all Christians need to ask themselves, because our Creator is a purpose driven God.
If we know the answer and obediently follow, it will change everything we are and we do. It will change how we live. It gives us a meaningful and purposeful life.

Hi community of YFBRC 2.0,
Your relationship with Him becomes alive when you constantly make conscious effort to narrow the gap/error between your inferior way and His constant and perfect Way. Everything you do in your daily life and approach to situations, display how close you are with the Word.
These unspoken fruits show the hallmark of a true Christian.
You make everything you are and do a reflection of your relationship with the Word.
… and this is how you live out the Word.

Hi there, keep reading, don’t stop.
Light IS understanding
Darkness IS ignorance
The Word = Jesus Christ = The Light = The Lamp unto your feet = The Light unto your path = The Way
How can we know God without reading His Word?
You are born naturally blind of understanding, in darkness. You need the Word of God to illuminate parts of you that you never know exist.
* Your individual true identity in Christ, * your individual plans from God and, * your individual gifting/ talents
they are your continuous journey of discoveries and transformation and a continuous effort to keep us remained saved, and rescued after Salvation. Paul told us to shine brightly for Christ by working hard for the fruits of our salvation.
Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. WORK HARD TO SHOW THE RESULTS OF YOUR SALVATION, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. Philippians 2:12 (NLT)

DATE: 4TH JULY 2020
Hi devoted members of YFBRC 2.0,
1st and foremost, i would like to thank you for your trust and friendship. Some have been with me from the beginning, and some later years.
All of us have a common goal of transformation through a relationship with the Word.
It is only the beginning of a new chapter for YFBRC, and her growth is influencing yours in a certain extent. There is much to be done. i thought of posting this to you and telling you that you have not missed any action.
For those who are making a comeback, i am jumping up and down, praising God! Heaven rejoices!
What does it mean when you re-register ?
You are telling God and yourself that you want to commit, with me as a witness… to read consistently, understand deeply and live it out as the Way, the Truth and the Life. And not just about getting encouraged. to grow up spiritually and be Christ-minded. to understand the meaning of accountability. to engage the Holy Spirit as your #1 go-to Helper. to be a blessing to the growth of this outreach and body of Christ in this community.
Prophecy is unfolding… 1. 2014 survey done in America on the actual # of Bible reading population of Christians in America. Stats shows 35% read the Bible weekly, at least.
2. Compare that to the parable of 10 bridesmaids, and
3. compare that to what i am witnessing myself from our previous population in YFBRC community.
All i can say is God’s promises are amazingly accurate at the same time a grave concern. Would you know God if you do not read your Bible?(still waiting for others to respond to YFBRC 2.0)
Next, if you are experiencing pasting problem on S.O.A.P. form, Please download and browse form witb Opera Touch.
If you are making a comeback, please read from your last stop.
PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO ASK FOR HELP FROM ME, IT IS ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY WITH HIM.
Have to go, i will be contacting you soon, perhaps an online session sometime to answer your queries.
