Welcome to Faith Bible Church Singapore (FBCS)

At our church, we hope that through His Word and by His Spirit, and through the fellowship of the saints you will get to know and experience the Heavenly Father’s unfailing love for you.

John 1:17 (AMP)
17 For while the Law was given through Moses, grace (unearned, undeserved favor and spiritual blessing) and truth came through Jesus Christ.

By our Father’s Grace, we endeavour to teach His Word of Truth that Faith be imparted to your life. Then through Faith you may access His Grace all the time for yourself and for others, thus helping you to develop spiritually and helping your faith grow exceedingly.

The Heavenly Father has given FBCS this mandate, that is, “Prayer is Our Mission.” Through prayer we hope that you will fulfill the destiny that our Father God’s unfailing love has planned for you.

I pray that FBCS will be a blessing to you. Let us help you fulfill this unique plan that God has for your life.
May our Heavenly Father’s Unfailing Love pour out His abundance of Grace upon you!

Genesis 6:3 (NKJV) And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”What did God mean when He said, “…his [man] days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” Did God mean that we shall all live till one hundred and twenty years? The New English Translation of Genesis 6:3 says, "...They will remain for 120 more years." That means from the time God said He would not always protect them (mankind), they would live for 120 more years till the time the flood came.Genesis 5:32 (NET) After Noah was 500 years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham, and Japheth.Noah had three sons after he was 500 years old. Let’s look at the scriptures below to understand how God felt towards mankind.Genesis 6:5–7 (NIV)5 The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 7 So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.”The Lord saw the human race had become very wicked and all the time the thoughts of their hearts turned towards evil. So the Lord could not protect them and allowed the whole human race to be suddenly destroyed.Genesis 6:8-9 (NET)8 But Noah found favor in the sight of the Lord.9 This is the account of Noah. Noah was a godly man; he was blameless among his contemporaries. He walked with God.Only Noah received favour from the Lord because he was not infected by evil; he was blameless in God’s sight and walked with Him.Genesis 6:11–14 (NET)11 The earth was ruined in the sight of God; the earth was filled with violence. 12 God saw the earth, and indeed it was ruined, for all living creatures on the earth were sinful. 13 So God said to Noah, “I have decided that all living creatures must die, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. Now I am about to destroy them and the earth. 14 Make for yourself an ark of cypress wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it with pitch inside and out.God saw that the earth had become corrupt and was filled with violence. The whole human race and all the living creatures were evil, and the earth was ruined in God’s sight. God had to allow them to be destroyed. For God already said in Genesis 6:3, He would not always protect humankind. But to save Noah the Lord gave him specific instructions to build the Ark.Genesis 7:6 (NET) Noah was 600 years old when the floodwaters engulfed the earth.When Noah completed building the Ark, the flood came. He was 600 years old when the human race and all living creatures on the earth were destroyed. Notice that in Genesis 6:3 God said that He would not protect the human race and in Genesis 6:14 He told Noah to build the Ark. Therefore from Genesis 6:3 when God stopped protecting the human race till the flood covered the earth, it was a period of 120 years. Thus, God was not giving man a general promise that he should live till 120 years. God saw man was greatly wicked and every thought of theirs was evil. That was why God said He would not protect the human race and in 120 years’ time, the human race would suddenly be destroyed. God sees the end from the beginning. He saw in 120 years’ time, there was going to be a catastrophic flood. Since His protection was not upon the human race, they would be destroyed by this flood. What is God’s promise to the human race? With long life He will satisfy and show us His salvation. This was and still is God’s promise to us today. Noah lived till 950 years after the flood. God will not stop you from living till 950 years if you are able to.Rev. Cheong Yew KwongFaith Bible Church SingaporePlease visit our website at fbcs.org.sg#goodtoread ... See MoreSee Less

Genesis 6:3 (NKJV) And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”

What did God mean when He said, “…his [man] days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” Did God mean that we shall all live till one hundred and twenty years? 

The New English Translation of Genesis 6:3 says, ...They will remain for 120 more years. That means from the time God said He would not always protect them (mankind), they would live for 120 more years till the time the flood came.

Genesis 5:32 (NET) After Noah was 500 years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

Noah had three sons after he was 500 years old. Let’s look at the scriptures below to understand how God felt towards mankind.

Genesis 6:5–7 (NIV)
5 The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 
6 The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 
7 So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.”

The Lord saw the human race had become very wicked and all the time the thoughts of their hearts turned towards evil. So the Lord could not protect them and allowed the whole human race to be suddenly destroyed.

Genesis 6:8-9 (NET)
8 But Noah found favor in the sight of the Lord.
9 This is the account of Noah. Noah was a godly man; he was blameless among his contemporaries. He walked with God.

Only Noah received favour from the Lord because he was not infected by evil; he was blameless in God’s sight and walked with Him.

Genesis 6:11–14 (NET)
11 The earth was ruined in the sight of God; the earth was filled with violence. 
12 God saw the earth, and indeed it was ruined, for all living creatures on the earth were sinful. 
13 So God said to Noah, “I have decided that all living creatures must die, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. Now I am about to destroy them and the earth. 
14 Make for yourself an ark of cypress wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it with pitch inside and out.

God saw that the earth had become corrupt and was filled with violence. The whole human race and all the living creatures were evil, and the earth was ruined in God’s sight. God had to allow them to be destroyed. For God already said in Genesis 6:3, He would not always protect humankind. But to save Noah the Lord gave him specific instructions to build the Ark.

Genesis 7:6 (NET) Noah was 600 years old when the floodwaters engulfed the earth.

When Noah completed building the Ark, the flood came. He was 600 years old when the human race and all living creatures on the earth were destroyed. Notice that in Genesis 6:3 God said that He would not protect the human race and in Genesis 6:14 He told Noah to build the Ark. Therefore from Genesis 6:3 when God stopped protecting the human race till the flood covered the earth, it was a period of 120 years. 

Thus, God was not giving man a general promise that he should live till 120 years. God saw man was greatly wicked and every thought of theirs was evil. That was why God said He would not protect the human race and in 120 years’ time, the human race would suddenly be destroyed. God sees the end from the beginning. He saw in 120 years’ time, there was going to be a catastrophic flood. Since His protection was not upon the human race, they would be destroyed by this flood. 

What is God’s promise to the human race? With long life He will satisfy and show us His salvation. This was and still is God’s promise to us today. Noah lived till 950 years after the flood. God will not stop you from living till 950 years if you are able to.

Genesis 6:3 (NKJV) And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”Did God say man shall live till 120 years? Noah and his 12 descendants did not. In fact they lived way beyond 120 years. What does God mean when He said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever,…”?According to E.A. Speiser:E. A. Speiser argues that the term is cognate with an Akkadian word meaning “protect” or “shield.” In this case, the Lord’s Spirit will not always protect humankind, for the race will suddenly be destroyed (E. A. Speiser, “YDWN, Gen. 6:3,” JBL 75 [1956]: 126–29). Biblical Studies Press. (2005). The NET Bible First Edition; Bible. English. NET Bible.; The NET Bible. Biblical Studies Press.Why did God suddenly say He would not always protect humankind and they would suddenly be destroyed? Furthermore, in Genesis 6:3 who was God referring to and which period of time?Genesis 6:5–7 (NIV)5 The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 7 So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them.”From the above scriptures we see why the Lord will not always protect humankind. The whole human race had evolved to the point where their wickedness was great, every thought was slanted towards evil ALL THE TIME; they never thought and planned anything good, instead everything was evil. Can you imagine what the earth was like in those days? God said, “My Spirit shall not always protect humankind, for the race will suddenly be destroyed.” It was not God who did not want to protect them from sudden destruction, but He no longer could. Similarly, when someone strays so far away from the Lord Jesus, deep into the devil’s territory and under the complete influence of the devil, he or she has strayed too far away from His grace of protection. The purpose of the devil is to destroy and will destroy such a person. Satan influenced the entire human race for evil. Only Noah chose to obey God. Satan’s purpose was to infect the whole human race with evil thoughts all the time to bring them to the brink of no return and destruction.The will of the human race during that period was so bent on evil that God could not turn them around. God was not able to protect them even though He saw the coming flood would bring about a destruction. The Lord felt the emotional pain as expressed in the word “regretted”, because He saw the outcome of the whole human race and could not do anything to help. For this reason the Lord would not always protect humankind because He could not. Rev. Cheong Yew KwongFaith Bible Church SingaporePlease visit our website at fbcs.org.sg#goodtoread ...
