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…

Jesus slept.

Thoughts from the Spirit today. When Jesus rebuked the disciples for not having faith in the incident when he stopped the winds and waves in the boat, he was not rebuking them for not believing in the fact that Jesus could save them. Mark 4:37-40 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke…

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…

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…

“All” means “ALL”?

Dear friends, We are often attracted by the elusiveness of having to believe all men will be saved. It is easy for us to be persuaded to believe an inclusion Gospel. while grace is inclusive, inclusion however is not grace. We must understand there are times, when the scripture mentions ALL, it speaks about the…

The prayer language of the Holy Spirit.

MARY ALICE ISLEIB The Holy Spirit has given us a powerful prayer language that we can use as a weapon against the wiles of the enemy. Are you using all the weapons in your spiritual arsenal? Many are adept at wielding the sword of the Spirit and pleading the blood of Jesus against principalities and…

Did God write the 10 commandments in your heart?

It is pertinent to note that Christians are divided in their understanding of whether the believer is bound by the 10 commandments or not. Also much of these arguments centre themselves with the understanding that God “has written his laws in our hearts”. One group I know says that Christians are the Ark of the…

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,…

Being “in the light” has nothing to do with being religious.

Being in the light has nothing to do with being religious or serving God. It just simply means being a new creation in the new covenant. The bible speaks about the law and the instruments in the tabernacle of Moses as the shadows. These shadows points to a reality. This reality is Christ. If you…

The Holy Spirit: Our friend.

Our friend the Holy Spirit. Dear friends, I have been receiving some feedback that the recent articles are too long and a bit difficult for some readers to follow. One suggested to me “why you don’t write a short and then a long one?” Here’s a simple short one. Many have equate the Holy Spirit…

“Sowing in the flesh”. Where we have gone wrong?
