The rapture, in Christian eschatology is an event that will pave way for other end time events. Christian eschatology looks to study and discuss matters concerned with the final events of history such as death and the afterlife, Heaven and Hell, the second coming of Jesus, the resurrection of the dead, the rapture, the tribulation, millennialism, the end of the world, the Last Judgment, the New Heaven and New Earth
(Ruth and Orpah case study) – Ruth 1:1-18 Today’s exposition is a case study of Ruth and Orpah, two Moabite converts who were married to Mahlon and Chilion, Noami’s sons respectively. The story of Ruth and Orpah is a very inspiring and thought provoking one. It is a call to […]
Lessons from the people of Laish; an application of Judges chapter 18 The tribe (a family) of the Danites overthrew the city of Laish when they saw how careless and indifferent of danger they lived. The Zidonians was said to be the closest neighbor to Laish and they were also […]
When we talk of a new life in Christ, it means a transformation of a once depraved soul to a saved one. While the soul become saved, the flesh remains just the same — unsaved. But what if we look at it the other way round? Having a transformed external […]
Ephesians 3:16-19; Hebrews 12:2; John 10:17-19
I understand at times, when people try to describe the depth of Gods love – how he saved them, perhaps. And they try to sing or describe the awe of His mercies towards them, how deep, how unimaginable and how tirelessly He ran after them for their salvation, that they could find no better word to express this great love.
But all the same, can we say Gods love is reckless? God’s love is intentional. It is purposeful. It has a plan and a future, and he want us to know it.
This exposition is to help you see that purposeful nature of His love so you can purposefully love him too and come to the knowledge of His truth.
So, in your own way, how can you describe the love of God?
Hebrews 12:22 says that, “The blood of Jesus speaketh better things than the blood of Abel.”
To understand the verse is to understand what the blood of this two people spake.
Gen. 4:9-11 made us to know that when Cain killed his brother Abel, the blood of Abel from the ground cried to God for vengeance. So, the blood of Abel spake vengeance. But on the other hand, Luke 23:33-34 tells us that Jesus asked the Father for our forgiveness while on the cross.
The blood of Jesus spake forgiveness. This is were the difference lies.
And to Jesus who is THE MEDIATOR OF THE NEW TESTAMENT…
Why is he the mediator of the new testament? It is because he came in the new testament to bring forgiveness and redemption, not judgment or condemnation. He said in John 3:17 For God came NOT into the world (in the new testament) to condemn the world but that the world through him might be saved.
But for us to be saved, we have to not refuse him that spake. We must first receive him to receive his salvation. Think about it.
John 1:12 says, “But as many as receive him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God”
This days, it is easy for believers to forget the kind of people God expect them to be when they become satisfied with the title of a believer more than the progressive work that should continue in the life of a believer as long as they live. No doubt, every […]
It is erroneous to think that the better covenant we have today as new testament believers comes with very little responsibility. In Luke chapter 12 vs 48b, Christ admonishes that unto whomsoever much is given, much is also required. And that applies also to believers in light of what they […]
Christ has obtained a more superior ministry for new testament believers, giving them a better covenant that enables them do what the people under the older covenant could not do.
His law now written in their hearts and his holy spirit dwelling within them, helps in walking consistently with God and gives them a better understanding of his word.
Believers are therefore expected to live beyond the periphery of God’s law and draw near to him in deeper devotion.
God has a way of stopping us from entering into relationships, partnership or friendship that could ruin our relationship with him.
