What it means to be “seated with Christ.”

Dear friends, I just wanted to share the notes of today’s message with you on my thoughts on Ephesians with you. As I prepared the notes, I am overwhelmed with how little we actually spend our mind thinking of what it means to be seated in Christ. This one thought truly was impressed upon my…

Fear and trembling has nothing to do with human effort.

  Dear friends,   When you read the words “fear and trembling”, do not think it speaks about effort.   In fact it actually means there is no human effort involved. Rather it speaks about the Holy Spirit’s power.   1 Corinthians 2:3-4 3 I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much…

“Why did God try to kill Moses on the way to Egypt?” This question was recently put to me by a reader and it is based on the following passage: At a lodging place on the way, the Lord met Moses and was about to kill him. But Zipporah took…

Hebrews 1: It’s direct now!

Dear friends, I noticed that many teach Hebrews chapter 1 being Jesus is sovereign or that he is superior to the angels. I verily believe it is a merely a preamble to a more important message. Let us see how Hebrews 1 begin. “In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times…

The Living Word and not the Written Word?

I have begun to discover a very important pattern developing from a certain sect. Despite obvious contradictions to their beliefs, they claim the following: a) everyone is saved whether faith in Jesus is required or not; b) evil exists in us because we took the fruit of Good and Evil. As such evil exists through…

A prayer for fruitfulness from a barren man.

“Don’t mock me God. How could I? Why do you ask me to do something I can’t? Already I am shamed for what I have done. The best excuse I can give to him was that “I sense there is no fear of God in this place”. I can’t even own up to the fact…

A much better covenant!

Under the old covenant: hear O Israel The Lord your God is one. Under the new: The Lord your God is one with you.   Under the old: I will remember your sins up to the 3rd and 4th generation. Under the new: I will remember your sins no more.   Under the old: thou…

Why do we find it hard to believe we are saved completely

Introduction It is only natural when we look into the Bible, we find that our salvation is not secure. I must insist however, the Bible is not a natural book. It is a supernatural one. Hence, it must be read with eyes of a supernatural reborn man. Only then will we receive the revelation that…

The Law of Moses and its relationship with the Angels.

The law of Moses actually celebrates the administration of angels over the Jews. It is pertinent to note that the angels task is to separate God from you. Everywhere angel appears it is to separate. A cherub was placed to separate you from the tree of life. The angels are woven into the veil of…

Does “being reconciled” mean you have no part to play?

Does “being reconciled” mean you have no part to play? Is this true? “2 Co 5:20 YLT in behalf of Christ, then, we are ambassadors, as if God were calling through us, we beseech(PARAKALEO)in behalf of Christ, `Be ye reconciled to God; The word Parakaleo , comes from [Para] a proposition indicating close proximity ,…

Andrew Wommack’s view on Universalism.

The word Gospel means good news, and it’s not good news to tell people that they are going to hell. However, there is a hell for those who don’t accept God’s offer of grace, and I believe it’s important for people to understand this. I’ve been appalled at the doctrine of “ultimate reconciliation,” or “universalism,” that has crept…

Let’s get it right! Are your future sins forgiven?
