Being blotted out from the book of life.

Revelation 3:5 New International Version 1984 (NIV1984) 5 He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and his angels. I think you would generally would have figured out the warnings given by Jesus to the angels of the…

In a recent CharismaNews article, Dr. Michael Brown confronts what he calls the “dangerous error” of the hyper-grace movement. He describes the foundational doctrines of this movement as follows; (1) we have been made righteous by the blood of Jesus, (2) all our sins have been forgiven, (3) the…

You can’t handle the truth!

Romans 1 18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen,…

Last Sunday, near the end of the service, about ten people responded to the invitation to give their lives to Jesus. Of course I was as shocked as you are. I thought, “Who let all these heathen sinners in the building? Don’t they know that church is just for…

It seems everyone has an opinion about James and how his letter fits (or doesn’t fit) into the New Testament. I thought I had heard everything, but this week, one of my readers sent me Scofield’s take on the book of James: “..his epistle shows no trace of the…

A story about praying in the Spirit.

This article was contributed by one of our readers called James. It is a fantastic read.  “Tom Woodward was a Christian businessman and a member of an Assembly of God church in Pasadena.  He shared with us how he had come to know the reality and power of the Holy Spirit.  Not long before, he…

Did the Law exist before the 10 commandments were given?

“Abraham didn’t exist before the Law. The Law was in existence from the Garden of Eden, though at that time there was only ONE Law: Don’t eat from the forbidden tree. Other Laws were added as needed and passed down orally. For instance: Yudah was born and died well before the Law was written down…

Genesis 4 and 5 tells a story of 2 kinds of righteousness.

Guys, Some of you would know I am doing a study on Genesis and have been blessed with much revelation. Today I was reading Genesis 4 and Genesis 5 and the list of name therein and I realized there are meaning to the names. I came across this wonderful study and thought I reproduced it…

Myths about demonic possession by Cornel

By Cornel Myth 1: Hollywood over exaggerates This is a tricky one because yes movies like the exorcist are way over the top, but I have also seen things you wouldn’t believe if I told you. (And I will tell you in future posts) So in some regards Hollywood exaggerates but in other areas not so…

Why the New Covenant is unbreakable…

This morning someone wrote this on my friend’s wall and said the new covenant is no different from that of the old covenant. She wrote: “The only difference between the Covenants is that Yahshua’s sacrifice replaced animal sacrifices and He reinstituted the Firstborn (Christians) as priests instead of Levites, as it was in the beginning….

Death is sin’s wage, so if sin has been dealt with at the cross, why do people still die? Good question! I’ve seen sick people healed by the grace of God. I’ve seen deaf ears and blind eyes opened. But everyone still dies. Why is that? If Christ’s sacrifice…

Can Jesus heal through social media: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube?

Dear friends, Jesus told us that in John 14:12-13 “12 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory…

The gift that wins you favor. Thoughts of Cain and Abel.

I am about to lead in a Bible Study. I just recall writing this note in my office a few years ago. Hope this blesses you. Abel was the 2nd son to Adam and Eve. A careful reading of the Bible clearly points out to you that he was not the favoured son. Cain was….

The prayer language of the Holy Spirit.

MARY ALICE ISLEIB The Holy Spirit has given us a powerful prayer language that we can use as a weapon against the wiles of the enemy. Are you using all the weapons in your spiritual arsenal? Many are adept at wielding the sword of the Spirit and pleading the blood of Jesus against principalities and…

Did God write the 10 commandments in your heart?

It is pertinent to note that Christians are divided in their understanding of whether the believer is bound by the 10 commandments or not. Also much of these arguments centre themselves with the understanding that God “has written his laws in our hearts”. One group I know says that Christians are the Ark of the…

Does the Bible teach Generation Curses?

Ezekiel 18:24-26 New International Version (NIV) 24 “But if a righteous person turns from their righteousness and commits sin and does the same detestable things the wicked person does, will they live? None of the righteous things that person has done will be remembered. Because of the unfaithfulness they are guilty of and because of the sins they…

Did The Father Forsake Jesus On the Cross?

For many years I taught the seven sayings of the cross and when I came to the words of Jesus, “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” I used the text as evidence that the Father had turned His back on His own Son when Jesus was on the cross. “The Bible is…
