So you think you can lose your salvation …

The plan of salvation was never about bringing people to heaven per se. If you read the account of creation the purpose of creation is for God and man to be joint in one flesh. That is why the Spirit hovered over the waters. When man chose to be led by his own spirit by…

Streets of Gold… Heaven I am in heaven…

  Revelation 21:21-24 21 The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of pure gold, like transparent glass. 22 I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city does…

Be holy, hyper-grace style.

1 Peter 1:15 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; Often when we tell people that Christ has already made you holy, we are greeted with opposition and they would rely on this verse. We are told that while we have a “positional holiness” we…

Are Gentiles included in the New Covenant?

Seems like a stupid question to ask. However there are always those who would want to tell others their “revelations” are greater than others. There is now a teaching that tells us that the New Covenant does not apply to Gentiles but just the Jews. Their premise is simple. The Gentiles were never under the…

The Son of God v the sons of God

Dear all, when the writer of Hebrews said: Hebrews 1:5 5 For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father”? Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son”? He is not merely saying that Jesus is a son of…

What if “I can’t endure till the end”?

There are a lot of passages about endurance. At first glance they seem to indicate that if you don’t endure to the end you will not be saved. That is true. If you are… A. A Jew and, B. You lived from the time Jesus came to the time the Roman soldiers destroyed Jerusalem under…

Before you read the book of Revelation.

When we tell others that the book of Revelation deals with events which had happened in AD70, we are usually met with opposition by people who insist they are of the future.

What should we really be learning from the 4 creatures.

A good friend asked me about my views on the 4 living creatures on the throne. Hi. These are my thoughts. The 4 living creatures were mention 3 times. 1st. In Isaiah 6. They appear IN the temple and sing Holy Holy Holy. The 2nd time was in Ezekiel. Where they appeared with wheels. This…

What do you have to lose in order to gain Christ?

There was a time where I actually thought I have to lose all things to find Christ. It is due to a wrong interpretation of verses such as these: Philippians 3:7-8 7 But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. 8 What is more, I consider everything a…

Never will I leave you nor forsake you.

What did the writer of Hebrews meant by “never will I leave you nor forsake you”? In the book of Hebrews the writer speaks of the earthly Jerusalem as in a city that is NOT enduring. In other words it was about to be destroyed as Jesus said in Matt 24. Hebrews 13:14 14 For…

Did Boaz redeemed Ruth or Mahlon? How Law changed to Grace.

We are told by certain squatters that Boaz did not redeem Ruth but Mahlon. The duty of the kinsman was to carry a child under the dead relative with his wife. That would work if Rahab had been a Israelite. The problem is that she was a Gentile. That was why the closer relative refused….

The last days akin to Noah

When Noah entered into the ark he entered from the “old earth”. When he came out of the ark, he came out to a “new earth”. Hence before he entered the ark he was part of the “old creation.” When he entered into the ark he was being transported into the “new creation”. His journey…

The stone that killed Goliath

We are very blessed to have my good friend Richard Yap to be our guest blogger for a couple of weeks. He has great insight of the word and one of the very few people I can discuss the things of God without having to explain concepts to great length as he is very sharp…
