地点:台湾三育基督学院 

台湾! 那是3年前 (我们推出了第三张专辑《活出神心意》之后) 曾经到过开诗歌布道会的地方。这次当我们准备台湾的整个行程时,又勾起了我们对这个国家很多美好的回忆。当最后走出机舱时,对这片土地,我们的心是充满了兴奋、希望和期待,我们一点也预料不到等待着我们的考验。
 
我们的第一站是在台湾三育基督学院。到达那里,熟悉的面孔,那些老师和员工们前来欢迎我们。之后我们就先到教堂去安装我们所带来的音响设备,要准备第一次的彩排。
 
在作音响检测时,我们突然发现我们无法打开其中一个无线的麦克风,而这个麦克风是最近才刚修理好的。这意味着我们需要跟教堂借一个有线的麦克风,并分别连接,但因为受到电缆的限制而阻碍我们对音乐会的安排。
 
我们继续彩排,其他成员都到不同地方去练习他们所唱的部分,而我们几个男生则留在那里练唱《三天使》这首歌。这首歌讲述了我们作为基督徒,要在世界要终结的时候宣扬上帝的信息。当我们唱到最高昂的部分时,突然 “砰” 了一声,跟着传来一股强大塑胶烧焦的气味。我们整个音响系统就这样突然”瘫痪“了,使我们无法继续排练。
 
经过检查之后,我们发现是电压变压器坏了。虽然它看起来只是一小块的零件,但对我们来说它却能产生巨大的影响。这意味着我们不能转化我们的音响设备,因为我们的设备需要240v的电力,而台湾只有110v的电力。因此,如果我们找不到一个替代的变压器,我们整个台湾巡回诗歌布道会的行程就会在这里结束。
 
有了这种可怕的想法,我们所有的人都心急试图找方法来解决它。我们尝试打开那坏的变压器,希望能修复它,也曾考虑在没有变压器下使用我们的音响设备。。。然而,我们都知道当时要靠人的力量来解救我们的音响设备是不可能的。
 
通常只有当我们来到死胡同时,我们才会来依靠我们大能的神! 一个想法突然出现在脑海中。在这所学院里,有一个媒体工作室。有电子设备的地方,这样一个零件也极有可能会存在着。因此我跑到工作室去找经理问他有没有这样的一个零件。然而令我惊慌的是,他告诉我说他不认为工作室里会有任何我需要的零件。但我想既然我们都来到了台湾,为了不要让撒旦阻止我们在台湾的福音布道行程,于是我又再问一次,心里也同时在祷告着,问经理是否真的确保他们没有东西可以帮助我们。
 
这时他突然想起,他有一个已经停用一段时日的旧设备。它是一个旧式的电压调节器。虽然这并不完全是我所要的变压器,但后来我发现上帝所提供的是超乎我们所想要的。它竟是一个重型电压调节器,不单有双电压110 v和240 v的输出,而且还有自己的断路器。也就是说,除了可以根据我们的需求来增加电压,这个仪器也确保我们所收到的电力供应能受到控制,而且不会收到任何尖波。但若在演唱会上真有尖波产生,它也不会毁掉音响系统,因为我们只要重新开启断路器,一切都会恢复正常。
 
噢,我们所服事的实在是一位奇妙的神! 他看顾在沙漠中的以色列人;他和但以理同在狮子坑里;他差派乌鸦来喂养以利亚;即使撒旦破坏我们的麦克风,上帝也绝不会允许魔鬼破坏他的演唱会! 在这先进的时代,上帝仍能够展示他的作为,向我们证明他仍然是最终的掌控者,而我们只需要一个简单的信心,就是全心全意地去信任他,他会在前方引路。
 
带着兴奋,我把电压调节器拿去教堂。当我打开门时我不禁喊道:“我们所服事的是全能的上帝!“ 在场的每个人看到我带了调节器回来做测试时都欢呼了起来。没有什么太大的事情是我们的神不能处理的。我把插头插上,每个人都在屏息凝视着,当我打开开关后,音响系统再次动起来! 大家都高兴的欢呼。当我向神献上感谢时,喜悦的泪水则充满了我的眼睛。环顾四周,我看到每个人都各自在祷告和感谢上帝。当晚的诗歌布道会如期完成。我们的歌声也打动了许多学生,因为在他们当中有很多人想要受洗或重新向主耶稣基督立志委身。
 
在完成第一个诗歌共享会后,我和其他当时不在场的歌手分享这段经历,同时也和在场的其他人说话。那时我才知道当我跑去媒体工作室时是伴随着其他人的祷告力量。原来当我去找经理时,教堂里每个人都聚集并分成小组在祷告。是祈祷的力量打开那位经理的记忆,想起了那个被弃用的电压调节器的存在。
 
我们从这次的经验中学到许多功课。首先,是上帝一直都在掌管。如果我们对他有完全的信心,他会告诉我们他那美好的道路和我们将体验的奇迹。其次,上帝的时机是最完美的。他允许让我们现有的变压器在我们第一场演唱会彩排时就出问题,因为他在这个地方已为我们预备了另一个更好、更适当的设备。试想,如果那变压器是在我们的音乐会当中或在其他演出场所坏掉,后果真不堪设想。第三,他总是看顾着我们,并对我们日常的生活显示极大的关注。他不是一位创造了我们,而又让我们孤独生活的神。像一位慈爱的父亲,他看到我们所犯每一个的过错,并给予管教和纠正我们。当我们跌倒时他会扶起我们,而当我们做了让他感到自豪的事,他也会对我们微笑。
 
最后,就像电压调节器在音响系统中扮演着重要的角色,耶稣也像是我们生命中的电压调节器。就像电压调节器是能支持整个音响系统,耶稣他是我们的房角石。就像电压调节器能允许输出110 v和240 v两种电压,耶稣也能提供我们所有的需要。就像电压调节器可以接收电流的尖波以保护音响系统不受破坏时,耶稣也为我们每一个人承担罪的刑罚,好使我们能够活着。最后就像在调节器里的断路器一样,耶稣在为我们所有人遭受强大的击打之后,又再从死里复活。
 
我们所事奉的神是一位有大能的活神,他对我们生活的每一个细节极其关注,他不认为我们应该要灭亡,而是要与他永远同住。
 
就像我们的组名所说,“神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,不至灭亡,反得永生” - 约翰福音3:16

虽然我们可能生活在一个充满罪恶和魔鬼网罗的世界里,但如果上帝站在我们这一边,并领导我们生命的战斗,谁可以阻挡我们呢?
 
316音乐事工已决定让神来引导我们的每一步,而我们也知道他将继续引领我们每一个人。316,为主而唱!

Date:29th November 2012 (Thursday)
Time:7:30 – 9:00pm
Location:Taiwan Adventist College

Taiwan! The last time we had set foot in this place was 3 years ago when we launched our 3rd album. We had many fond memories of this place as we were preparing for the entire trip.. Having finally stepped out of the plane, our hearts were filled with excitement with the hopes and expectations of this land, little did we know the trials that lay ahead..

Our first stop was at TAC, Taiwan Adventist college. Arriving there, we were greeted by familiar faces as the teachers and staff welcomed us. We then went to setup our equipment in the church hall to prepare for our first rehearsal.

While performing a sound check, we suddenly realised that we were unable to switch on one of our wireless microphones, which had just been newly repaired. This meant that we had to separately connect a wired mic which hampered our plans for the concert since we were restricted by the cable.

Carrying on with the rehearsal, the guys were left practicing their parts and we were singing the song "3 Angels Message". This song talks about the message that we as Christians are called to proclaim to the world at this end time. As we were coming to the climatic section of the song, there was suddenly a loud "BOOM" followed by a strong burnt plastic smell. Our entire sound system lost its power and we were unable to continue rehearsing.

Upon investigation, we realised that it was the voltage step up transformer that had spoilt. Even though it might only be a small piece of hardware, it had an immense impact to us, this meant that we had no means of powering up our equipment because our equipment required 240V of power as compared to Taiwan's 110V. Hence, if we do not have any means of finding a replacement, our concerts for this entire trip would just end here.

Having that thought dawn upon us, all of us frantically tried to find ways to solve it, be it trying to open the spoilt transformer in hopes of repairing it, or contemplating if we could use our equipment without the transformer... However, we all knew that there was nothing that we could do that was humanely possible that could power back our equipment.

Often only when we meet a deadlock do we then rely on the divine power of God! A thought came to my mind that within the school, there is a media studio and when there's electronic equipment, there might be a remote possibility that such a piece of hardware could exist too. Hence I hurried down to the studio to look for the manager to asked him for such a hardware. However to my dismay, he told me that he does not think that the studio has anything that could suit my needs. Not wanting Satan to put a stop in our evangelistic efforts after coming all the way here to Taiwan,  I asked again, praying in my heart, whether he was really sure that they did not have something that could help us.

He suddenly recalled that he had an old piece of equipment that they had stopped using for a while, it was an old voltage regulator. While it was not exactly a transformer that I asked for, little did I come to realise that God had provided above what we could ask or dream for. It turned out to be a heavy duty voltage regulator, with dual voltage outputs for both 110V and 240V, it came with its own circuit breaker too. This meant that on top of stepping up the voltage to our requirements, this hardware made sure that the power that we received was controlled and did not receive any spikes, and in the event that a spike occurred, it would not blow the system as we would just need to reset the circuit breaker and everything would be fine.

We are serving a marvellous God! He watched over the Israelites in the desert, he was with Daniel in the lion's den, he provided ravens to feed Elijah,  and even though Satan took away our microphone, God would not allow the devil to take away His concert! In this advanced day and age, God is still able to show his handiwork and to prove to us that He is still ultimately in control, and that we just need to have a simple faith to trust in Him wholeheartedly, He will lead the way.

Beaming with excitement, i took the hardware up to the church. As I opened the doors, I shouted: "We serve mighty God!" Everyone present cheered as I brought the hardware to test it out. Nothing is too big for our God to handle. Plugging it in, and as everyone watched by, I turned on the switch and all our sound system kicked back to life! Shouting for joy, tears of joy filled my eyes as I gave thanks to God. Looking around, I saw everyone individually praying and thanking God too. The concert could go on and it did for the rest of the evening. Our songs touched the hearts of many of the students as many of them wanted to get baptised and to recommit their lives to Christ.

Having finished the first concert, I shared this experience with those other singers that were not present, as well as talking to those that were. Little did I know that my visit to the studio was accompanied by the power of prayer. When I went down to look for the manager, everyone in church gathered around and pray in small groups. The power of prayer unlocked a memory bank in the manager's mind that recalled about the existence of the voltage regulator.

There were many lessons that we've learnt from this experience. Firstly, God is always in charge. If we place our complete faith in Him, He will show us the beauty of His ways and the miracles that we will experience. Secondly, God's timing is perfect. He allowed our existing transformer to fail at our first concert rehearsal because he had a better option for us available at the place with proper equipment. If it had failed during our concert, or at other locations, the result would be disastrous. Thirdly, he is always watching over us and he shows extreme interests in our daily activities. He is not a God that just created us and leaves us alone. Like a loving father, he watches over our every mistake and corrects us, picks us up when we fall, and smiles on us when we do Him proud.

Lastly, like how the voltage regulator plays an important role to the sound system, Jesus is like the voltage regular of our lives. Just like how the regulator is the support for the whole sound system, Jesus is our cornerstone. Just like how the regulator allows for 110V and 240V, Jesus provides for all our needs, whatever they may be. Just like how the regulator would take a power spike in the current to protect the system from breaking down, Jesus took a mighty blow for everyone of us so that we might be able to live. And  finally just like the circuit breaker within the regulator, Jesus rose from the dead after taking that mighty blow for us all.

We serve a mighty and living God that pays extreme attention to every single detail of our lives, not wanting that we should perish but live with him forever.

Just like what our name stands for, "For God so loved the world that he sent His only begotten son, that whosoever believed in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life" ~ John 3:16

We might be living in a world full of sin and of the devil's snares, but if God is on our side leading our life's battle, who can stand in our way?

316 Music Ministry has decided to let God lead us every step of the way, and we know that He will continue to lead us all. 316, Sing for The Lord!
