The 2 resurrections.

  Revelation 20:66 Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years. Revelation 20:1212 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the…

Dying in eternity.

There are those who find it difficult to believe the sins we have yet to commit are forgiven. They argue that these sins must be confessed to be forgiven. The problem with such thinking is that they think Jesus’ sacrifice was offered within time and space on earth. Hebrews 9:11-15 11 When Christ came as…

Why does Manna last for a day?

People ask me why did the manna last only for a day? I believe it was because the Lord wanted them to rely on Him to be the provider. To recognise the fact if you use your self effort to gather your providence will only result on the manifestation of how ugly your flesh is. …

Why the body of Jesus is necessary

I think we really have to rethink our faith. We have this idea that God would separate himself because your “sins” will defile him. Hence we think he moves away from you when you sin. The truth is this. Sin is afraid of God. It becomes totally annihilated when it comes in the presence of…

Why did Joshua put the stone of testimony under the oak?

Did you realize that Joshua told the people that they could not “serve the Lord” and that observance of the Law would be something against them? “Joshua 24:27 And Joshua said to all the people, See, this STONE shall be a witness AGAINST us, for it has heard all the words the Lord spoke to…

Endorsements

Hebrews 2:4 Amplified Bible (AMP)4 [Besides this evidence] it was also established and plainly endorsed by God, Who showed His approval of it by signs and wonders and various miraculous manifestations of [His] power and by imparting the gifts of the Holy Spirit [to the believers] according to His own will. Its always by grace,…

“Just as man is destined to die once,”

Hebrews 9:2727 Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, This verse is always quoted to inject fear on us. This is is because we think it means that even if you have come to Jesus you will nevertheless be judged. Please note this is not what it means….

His Resurrection My Justification

Romans 4 24 but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. 25 He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification. What if I were to tell you that forgiveness of sins is only half the gospel? Christ…

Leah was there for dramatic effect.

Genesis 29:20 20 So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her. Many know the story of how Jacob got cheated by Laban. After working for 7 years he was given Leah instead of Rachel. Genesis 29:26-27 26 Laban replied,…

How to partake in the sufferings of Jesus.

  I have heard often people say we are commanded to partake in the sufferings of Jesus to be more holy or to be closer to him. That is however but a myth.  This is where people get the idea from.  Philippians 3:9-10“and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that…

Hebrews 2: Why was Jesus “made lower than the angels”?

Hebrews 2: Revisited. The message of the Angels is the Law “We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. 2 For since the message spoken through angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, 3 how shall we escape if we ignore so great a…

At home with Jesus.

John 1:3939 “Come,” he replied. “You will see.”So they went and saw where he was staying. They spent the rest of the day with him. It was about four o ‘clock in the afternoon. I think many believers do not know that Jesus actually has a house. The truth he did. In fact he invited…
