The duel in the desert.

Having shown us who the Branch of Jesse is, Matthew brings us back to the thoughts on chapter one. He is going to establish that Jesus as the very son His Father takes delight in. Unlike Luke he doesn’t trace Jesus’s ancestry back to Adam but to David. David was a king who succeeded. Adam…

What did God condemn?

We must really get rid of this idea that God loves to condemn the sinner for his sins. Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: He…

Head covering.

It is very important to use culture, custom and audience relevance to understand Scriptures. Let’s take this one. 1 Corinthians 11:6-7 6 If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she…

Arguing Melchizedek is Jesus is missing the point.

Guys. Let me be frank. Melchizedek is not a real name. His name is actually a title. It is taken from 2 words. Melchi and Zedek. King and Righteousness. It is his title. King of Righteousness. He was also the King of Salem. Salem was the original name of Jerusalem before it became Jerusalem. Traditional…

How do we become “unholy” ( common)?

How do we become unholy? The children of Israel in the Old Testament’s main fault was that they wanted to be like other countries. The other countries had a law code, a king and sacrifices. So they wanted one. They wanted to be common. God wanted them to know that they were different. That they…

The New “Way, Truth and Life”.

When Jesus said “I am the Way the Truth and the Life”, he was saying to the Jews that he was the new temple his Father dwelled. He was saying the Father no longer dwells in the Temple. This means heaven was leaving the Old Covenant of the Law. Unknown to many Jesus was saying…

The judgment seat of Christ.

We sometimes make too much of the judgment seat of Christ as if he will send us to hell if we did evil. It is important for us to realise the Greek there is Ancient Greek. It tells us that you would not be punished for the “evil” you had done. Being honest. We all…

The Father’s New House.

It is pertinent to note every word of scripture is written to bring us comfort. When we read the words “fiery indignation and judgement awaiting the enemies of God”, we must note Hebrews 10:26-29 is talking about the abolishing of temple sacrifices and thereby the destruction of the Temple. The Temple is often referred to…

Sacrificing Isaac: A fresh perspective.

We really must teach the account of Abraham sacrificing Isaac, not from the point how Abraham showed he loved God. The Bible actually says God does not delight in sacrifices. He delights in the obedience of His Son Jesus. This can be seen in Hebrews 10. We must understand that Abraham was called out from…

The crippled woman and your salvation.

Luke 13:11 11 and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. I saw a note that says no where in the bible does it say we are once saved always saved. I was stunned as this came…

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…

The day you changed places with the Devil.

Romans 16:20 20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you. The key word to this promise is “soon”. Not 1000 years. Not 2000 years. But soon. Paul tells us that we will meet Jesus in the air in 1st Thessalonians 4. (Please…

Meeting Jesus in the air.

There has been some misunderstandings in relevance to my studies. In my new gained understanding, I have said that there is an old “heaven and earth” as well as a new “heaven and earth”. What I have meant to say is that this is a Hebrew terminology for the temple. The old temple resides in…

What does “God disciplining his children” mean?

  Does God discipline his children by sending them judgment and sicknesses?   Hebrews 12 is not about God punishing his children. The misconception finds it’s source from understanding verse 1.   Hebrews 12   1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders…

The secret behind Job’s daughters.

I woke up reading a comment on my note, saying how did Job win since he lost all his loved ones? My reply was this: Job 39: 12 The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen…

Job and Jesus

We live our lives wanting God to answer of all of my questions. Job went through life and his trial without questions answered. In fact when he question God, God asked him more questions. Life is not about questions answered. It is about living despite wrestling with questions. Job triumphed over his test. He never…

About Job

I don’t believe the theme of Job is about suffering. It is about how a chosen man by God triumph over Satan in the midst of everything that was against him. It is most remarkable to me that God had picked Job before Satan as the man that he should consider. I believe God had…

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…
