A new basis to be blessed.

Matthew 5:1-3 Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them. He said: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” One of the saddest realities in Christianity today is to think the…

Finding meaning in the poverty in the spirit.

Matthew 5:2-3 The Beatitudes And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. One of the reasons I love Rich Mullins is his vagabond spirit and how he looked at himself as a Ragamuffin. He was rich but gave his wealth away….

“Fishing for men” is all about grace!

We are really messed up. We read the words of Jesus as works, when we fail to realize, he was being Jewish. Making someone a “fisher of men” has nothing to do with evangelism or getting people out of hell. Jesus was quoting Jeremiah. Jeremiah 16:16 “Behold, I am sending for many fishers, declares the…

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…

Unpopular Christianity.

I am currently working on a book and am now at chapter 2. As such it may take sometime before the next blog appears. In the mean time I hope you are satisfied with this awesome article by E W Kenyon. It is really the expression of my heart and what I really wanted to…

Is 1 John 1 for Believers or Unbelievers?

Originally posted on Escape to Reality:
“Why do you assume that the first chapter of first John is addressed to unbelievers?” This question was put to me by a friend after reading my recent post on 1 John 1:9. Judging by some of the comments that have come up in various discussion threads, it’s a…

Did Jesus abolish the Law or not?

Take a good look at the picture. Many believers keep harping on the fact that Jesus said he did not come to abolish the law. Take another look at the picture, you may argue oh but that’s the food law as well as the ceremonial law”. Now take a look at Football On Saturdays. That’s…

Fear and trembling revisited.

Hey guys the term “fear and trembling” means awe and worship. Not that God is going to take his salvation away from you. Jeremiah 33:9 English Standard Version And this city shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and a glory before all the nations of the earth who shall hear of…

Does sin separate God from you anymore?

A lot of people quote you Isaiah 59:1-2 and tell you that sin will separate from God even after you have become a Christian. Here’s what it says: Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your…

The Lordship of Jesus and our salvation

Dear friends, This is a follow-up note to “Jesus is Lord” note, I put up a few weeks ago. You can find it here: https://hischarisisenough.wordpress.com/2013/08/04/what-does-jesus-is-lord-actually-mean/ Its just that I discover so much more to this I just had to write a brand new piece on this subject. There are many who teach that only few make…

What does “Jesus is Lord” actually mean?

This note is dedicated to many who condemn themselves who find themselves, unable to continue the Christian faith failing to live up to the “standards of “biblical” Christianity. Many people claimed that unless Jesus is your Lord in every area, you are not saved. They argue you have to confess “Jesus is Lord” and thus…

Has “Heaven and Earth passed away?”

Matthew 5:17-18 (NKJV) “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 “For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled….

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…

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…

“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…

Grace has to be “Hyper!”

Dear friends, Recently Charisma Magazine had been publishing articles warning many of the dangers of the “grace movement” by labeling it “hyper grace” or “dangerous grace”. This part 2 of my response to the article “What is wrong about Grace?” by Mike Bickle. It is very important for us to note that when Paul was…

There is NOTHING wrong with Grace – Part 1

Dear friends, Recently Charisma Magazine had been publishing articles warning many of the dangers of the “grace movement” by labeling it “hyper grace” or “dangerous grace”. Cheap Grace? Such attacks are not new. Many also misquoted Dietrich Bonheoffer and label grace as “cheap”.   Why do people quote Bonhoeffer without quoting its context? The words, “grace…
