My full name is Yew Sook Lian or I called myself Genesis Yew.
My full-time job is working as a corporate secretarial manager at a small local company associated with a small local audit firm in Singapore.
I was born to bear witness to the existence of Jesus son of Joseph and Mary born around 2,000 years ago and yet somehow he is also the Creator of this earth and the heavens and that he is the God and King of Israel and of all the earth.
I have been barely getting by with my salary of SG$3,250.
The following is an approximate breakdown of my current spending.
I am unable to save any money and do not have any savings in my bank account.
SG$3,250 – $2,800 (for my rental house and mother & sis expenses in Johor Bahru) = $550 balance food, medication (hypertension&type2diabetes&legpains) and toiletries for myself in Singapore.
[$1,000 JB house rental
$700 mother, sister and dog – groceries food, etc
$200 JB house detergents, mosquito coils, etc.
$300 mother medication for bleeding bedsores and leg pains, adult diapers, etc (mother is currently bedridden unable to sit up/stand or walk)
$500 JB house utilities, lawn mowing and miscellaneous expenses]
Last week I got an ultimatum from my employer that I need to move out of my office chair where I have been sleeping since March 2020 and find a single occupancy room as soon as possible.
I am not allowed to find a sharing room or face immediate termination as my employer is afraid of dormitories.
Single occupancy room in my area costs about $800 while room sharing is around $350.
With my single person salary, either I end up sleeping at the roadside or MRT station or ending the rent for my house in Johor Bahru which will send my mother and sister and dog sleeping at the roadside.
2. My thoughts on asking for monetary assistance.
It only occurred to me on 9 July 2021 that I can actually try to seek help with the online website GoGetFunding.
In the past I was sort of a 2 Thessalonians 3:10 person which led some arguments with my sister.
“The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”
I thought that Matthew 10:7-10 meant that I should not ask for donations or accept help. The articles on my website are all free-of-charge.
It only occurred to me recently that Jesus and his disciples accepted donations and hospitality for their food and lodging needs from wherever they went to preach and that it is not a shame to ask for help.
2 Thessalonians 3
New International Version
6 In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us.
7 For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you,
8 nor did we eat anyone’s food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you.
9 We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to offer ourselves as a model for you to imitate.
10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”
11 We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies.
12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the food they eat.
13 And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good.
New International Version
7 As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’
8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.
9 “Do not get any gold or silver or copper to take with you in your belts—
10 no bag for the journey or extra shirt or sandals or a staff, for the worker is worth his keep.
11 Whatever town or village you enter, search there for some worthy person and stay at their house until you leave.
12 As you enter the home, give it your greeting.
13 If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you.
I am NOT a Charismatic or Pentecostal speaking in tongues preacher selling blessings and telling people that they will be blessed if they donate.
I cannot command God to bless you like how so many people in the church do, which I think it is so wrong to instruct God on what he should do.
God will bless you out of his own free will and time or maybe he will just lead you through a ton of difficulties to try and test you.
Please DO NOT donate if you are in financial difficulty yourself.
Only donate if you have money to spare.
[ A Short Note regarding the meaning of "blessings" in the Bible added on 14 August 2021:-
New International Version
The Priestly Blessing
Numbers 6:22 The Lord said to Moses,
23 “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
24 “‘“The Lord bless you
and keep you;
25 the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”’
27 “So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.”
Hebrews 11:20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau in regard to their future.
A High Priest of the Lord would only bless the people upon receiving God's instructions to do so.
Other example on blessings is when a father blesses his sons (when Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau).
Blessings in this day and age has become grossly trivialized and significantly downgraded and reversed on its purpose by altering the chain of command perpetrated by the impertinence of the general public or religious people's inert anti-god or antichrist mentality.
When King David in the Psalms said "Bless the Lord........" , the meaning becomes reverent praise in honour to his creator.
When God blesses us, the blessing also carries a curse that is equally powerful and exacting.
For example, when Noah blesses his sons, his words contain both blessings and curses. He made Canaan servant to Shem and Japheth. It is important to note that Noah did not make his son "Ham" a servant to his brothers but one of his grandchildren Canaan.
Canaan or a Canaanite represents children that are wealthy, idolatrous, debaucherous, etc. Therefore it is an erroneous Christian interpretation to force the dark skinned people to become their slaves. ]
Genesis 24:27 King James Version
And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of my master Abraham, who hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being in the way, the Lord led me to the house of my master's brethren.
Psalm 103:1-3 New International Version
1 Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
Psalm 103:1-3 King James Version
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Exodus 18:10 King James Version
And Jethro said, Blessed be the Lord, who hath delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh, who hath delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians.
Genesis 14:18-20 King James Version
18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
19 And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:
20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
Genesis 9:25-27 King James Version
25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
26 And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath driven thee,
2 And shalt return unto the Lord thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;
3 That then the Lord thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the Lord thy God hath scattered thee.

3. What I intend to do with the donations received.
I have not returned home to Johor Bahru ever since March 2020 because of high cost of covid-19 tests and quarantine expenses. It is my personal wish to go home and see my mother before she passes away as she is already 90 years old.
My sister is exhausted being a full-time helper for my mother’s bedridden conditions. If I can go home to help take turns to watch over my mother in rotation with my sister, then it will help with the toll that had taken on her mental and physical health.
I can continue to help my employer also by working from home in JB.
I also hope to convert from full-time to part-time working for my current employer so that I can have time to finish my final letter to the children of Israel. I have completed about 50% approximately 300 pages and I cannot seem to find the time to write anymore.
It seems Exodus 5 is not a fairy tale but it is very true in this world. The more I pray and plead for time to finish the letter to Israel, the more persecution I get at work. Having to work until 10pm at night without overtime pay and sometimes having to work during the weekends as well without pay because of shortage of staff.
New International Version
6 That same day Pharaoh gave this order to the slave drivers and overseers in charge of the people:
7 “You are no longer to supply the people with straw for making bricks; let them go and gather their own straw.
8 But require them to make the same number of bricks as before; don’t reduce the quota. They are lazy; that is why they are crying out, ‘Let us go and sacrifice to our God.’
I hope to take up part-time course at BCA in Architecture and Landscaping specialist Diploma to better understand the concepts of rebuilding Jerusalem.
Without external help, I am chained to my current situation.
