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 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…

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…

“All the lonely people; Where do they all come from?”

In 1966 a song “Eleanor Rigby” was recorded by Paul McCartney of The Beatles. The song gave the band a shift to how people viewed them as just a young  rockers to be taking more serious in their music. The song hit a reality with the lines “All the lonely people; Where do they all…

When Abraham looked up.

Do you realize the Old Testament paints pictures of our present realities? Dear friends, do you realize that Abraham was never told by the Lord to “look up” until Lot left Abraham? Lot on the other hand chose Sodom when he “looked up”. Dear friends, Lot means veiled in Hebrew. Lot like many of us…

The God who refused to go home.

Many at times people who teach grace and reality of Jesus in us are accused for forgoing the Old Testament. I hope you don’t include me in that category. I love the Old Testament. I love the stories, the people and the honesty of the Old Testament. I mean where else can you find a…

Is faith crucial to salvation?

Do Acts 17:28 and 1 Timothy 4:10 teach us that faith is not necessary for us to be saved? I have been reading the writings of some grace believers who are now saying that it is not necessary for a believer to have faith in the finished work of Jesus in order to be saved…

Removing the poverty mentality from the Gospel.

Myths about Poverty Mentality. So often, we are told that Christians should have a mentality that wealth is not a good thing; that the gospel is not something that should be linked to prosperity. Yet I see the very same people who make such comments driving big cars and living in big houses. Don’t get…

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…

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….

Why are some people not in heaven?

This note is a realization of an earlier article. So the reproduction of some parts of an article is necessary. What did the fall of man do to him? God disallowed man to eat from the tree of life. I always thought God meant it as a punishment. Until I saw the word “take also”. Dear friends,…

Stop and smell the roses.

Genesis 8:22 22 “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.” Have you ever wonder what is the context of the this verse? It is said right God smelled the pleasing aroma of the sacrifice Noah offered. Genesis 8:21 21 The Lord…

Starry starry Night: Insights to Genesis 15:5

Genesis 15:5 He took him outside and said, “Look up at the heavens and count the stars—if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Want to hear something awesome? no. 1 it refers to “offspring” not many offsprings. The traditional teaching is that Abraham will have many…

I wonder what made God just take Enoch away?

Genesis 5:24 24 Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away. Many people quote this verse and say Enoch walked ‘faithfully’ as in works and holiness with God. Unfortunately this is not true. Enoch did not walk faithfully with God. The right way of interpreting this verse is…
