About Jairus

Sean (Jairus) Song received the Lord in 2002 in the Local Church Movement. His wife Ruth received the Lord in 2003 and they got married in 2006. They were both born in China and came to the United States for graduate studies. They have been preaching the gospel to overseas Chinese students and scholars but in 2016 there was a turn in their spiritual lives. They both got baptized in the Holy Spirit and witnessed a miracle healing. Now they are ready to be witnesses for both the Word of God and the supernatural ministry of Jesus Christ. Sean has finished the Christian Healing Certification Program (CHCP) and Christian Prophetic Certification Program by Global Awakening. He is currently a Doctor of Ministry student at Randy Clark’s Scholars program at United Theological Seminary (UTS).  Randy Clark Scholars is a joint program between UTS and Global Awakening. Sean also has a special burden for his home country China. His vision is to preach the gospel, heal the sick, cast out demons, and equip the saints and build up the body of Christ.

By 2015, I had been in the United States for 13 years and a Christian for the same amount of time. In 2006, my wife and I married and like many other Chinese couples, we had every intention of building a family. In 2015, however, we also approached 10 years of...

Why we use the Name Jairus

Why we use the Name Jairus

Jairus means “Jehovah who enlightens”.  It is not a commonly used name and I wanted to share how it became meaningful to me and why I chose to use it for our ministry.

My Testimony

My Testimony

As a child, I always wondered why we live on earth. I would always think about this in my yard while looking at the stars. Sometimes, I sat upon a small hill near my village, wondering, “Where will I be in the future?”

Bible Study with Jairus – Romans 16

Bible Study with Jairus – Romans 16

The verses that inspired our bible group were Romans 16:19-20 (ESV), “For your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, but I want you to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil. The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.” A brother in our group asked, “Why does Paul say be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil? What does this mean?”

Bible Study with Jairus – Romans 15

Today is December 6, 2020 and the US election results have not yet been released. The coronavirus pandemic is still raging in the United States, and there are various negative news reports and comments spreading beyond the USA. Scores of people have been working at home for a long time, and there are still many uncertainties. We don’t know when the pandemic will end; when we can go back to work; whether it is safe to get a COVID-19 vaccine; who will be the president of the United States; what the future of the United States will be; and how China-US relations will develop. These questions and many others invoke and weaken the hearts of many people, including the hearts of Christians. Many feel confused and are even living in fear. Christians are no exception.

Bible Study with Jairus – Numbers 7

Bible Study with Jairus – Numbers 7

After our Bible meeting finished, we were still puzzled over Numbers 7. We didn’t understand some of the questions in this chapter. For example, the twelve tribes of Israel offered the same gifts twelve times. Each time, they were exactly the same. Yet, they are described repeatedly. We know that one written word of the Bible is worth a thousand pieces of gold. The Holy Spirit would surely not record unnecessary words in the Bible. However, from the perspective of efficiency, it seems a bit wasteful to repeat the sacrifices offered by the twelve tribes. This was a question that everyone had during our meeting.

Bible Study with Jairus – Leviticus 22

Bible Study with Jairus – Leviticus 22

Leviticus 22 says that priests must be holy when they are offering sacrifices to the Lord. Those who are not holy can’t offer sacrifices to the Lord, nor can they eat the sacred offerings dedicated to Him. For example, verses 12-13 says, “If a priest’s daughter marries anyone other than a priest, she may not eat any of the sacred contributions. But if a priest’s daughter becomes a widow or is divorced, yet has no children, and she returns to live in her father’s household as in her youth, she may eat her father’s food. No unauthorized person, however, may eat it.” How can we interpret the meaning of these verses?

Bible Study with Jairus – Leviticus 27

Bible Study with Jairus – Leviticus 27

Leviticus 27 is the last chapter of the book of Leviticus. It talks about Jehovah giving Moses the laws concerning people’s vows and dedications. The value that is set on each person when one makes a vow is not the same. A male has a higher value than a female, older people and children have a lower value (verses 1-8). If a man has already dedicated himself to the Lord, he must not exchange or substitute it. Although the animal and house that he dedicated can be redeemed, a fifth must be added to its value (verses 9-15). If a man who dedicates a field wishes to redeem it, he must add a fifth to its value. If he does not redeem the field, it can never be redeemed (verses 16-25). An animal’s firstborn must not be dedicated; he may repurchase the unclean animal after adding a fifth of the value to it. If he does not redeem it, it will be sold at its set value (verses 26-27). But nothing that a man owns and devotes to the Lord may be redeemed (verse 28). No person devoted to destruction may be ransomed (verse 29). A tithe of everything from the land belongs to the Lord. If a man redeems any of his tithe, he must add a fifth of the value to it (verses 30-31).

Bible Study with Jairus – Acts 28

Bible Study with Jairus – Acts 28

Acts 28 includes two stories. The first story is about Paul staying on the island of Malta for three months and then leaving there after the winter to go to Rome. On this island, he supernaturally prevailed against the attack of the viper. He also healed the father of the chief official of the island and other sick people. We don’t understand why Paul lived on this island for three months but didn’t record much of his ministry there. For example, if we are talking about healing people on the island, Paul would be able to lay hands on them and heal them in just a few days. Since Paul was a prisoner, he probably did not have the tools to weave tents as he always did in his profession. While in Malta, did Paul preach the gospel and teach the natives about the Bible? Since details aren’t given, we don’t’ know exactly what he did for those three months.

Bible Study with Jairus – Acts 20

Bible Study with Jairus – Acts 20

Matthew 10:8 (NIV) says, “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.” This sentence is what the Lord Jesus told the twelve disciples when He sent them out to preach. It seems that “raise the dead” is somewhat of an obscure command. Even among the twelve disciples, there is not much recorded of them raising someone from the dead. But there are a few examples, including Acts 9, where Peter raised Dorcas from the dead, and Acts 20, where Paul raised Eutychus from the dead, which we will read today.

Bible Study with Jairus – Acts 25

Bible Study with Jairus – Acts 25

Acts 25 is like a tug of war. Paul was imprisoned in Caesarea, a place Northwest of Jerusalem. The Jews insisted that Festus send Paul back to Jerusalem for trial, hoping to ambush and kill Paul on the way. Festus tried to please the Jews and asked Paul if he was willing to return to Jerusalem for trial, but Paul insisted on appealing to Caesar. So after Festus conferred with his council, he accepted Paul’s request.

Bible Study with Jairus – Numbers 10

Bible Study with Jairus – Numbers 10

One question that disturbs us in Numbers 10 is, what is the name of Moses’ father-in-law? Numbers 10:29 (ESV) says, “Moses said to Hobab the son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses’ father-in-law…” This section is very confusing. The meaning in the Recovery Version that we are reading is “Hobab, the father-in-law of Moses, is the son of Reuel the Midianite,” because Judges 4:11 mentions “Hobab, the father-in-law of Moses.” But when I first read it, I felt like “Moses’ father-in-law is Reuel, and he has a son named Hobab.” One person at the meeting said that this understanding was not consistent with Judges 4:11. It seems to her that the father of Hobab, Moses’ father-in-law, was called Reuel. But I said that when Exodus 2:18 was talking about Moses had helped to water the flock of the daughters of a Midianite priest in the wilderness, it was mentioned that their father’s name was “Reuel”. This proves that Reuel is not Moses’ grandfather, but rather Moses’ father-in-law himself. When Exodus 3:1 mentions Moses’ father-in-law, the name used is “Jethro”.

Reflection on Our Ministry

Reflection on Our Ministry

When I came back to sit on the bench again I noticed a Peanuts calendar titled “2016 Plan Your Family”. I heard the Lord speak to me again and tell me that I should begin to plan my family for 2016 and I would have a child that year. I ran into the bookstore again and told the cashier and bought this calendar. She probably thought I was crazy thinking that the Lord would give me a child through a calendar. I could tell by the look on her face.
