The best gift man will ever receive What is the best gift man will ever receive? There is an interesting story told about England’s Queen Victoria. She loved being able to go out and be by herself, without being recognized, so she could mingle with ordinary people. To keep from […]
One of the destructive weapons of authority in a man’s life is when it is manifested together with any negative emotion. In such a situation, it becomes a threat and not a blessing as it has the capacity to completely rob a man of the room to manifest faith for the moment, which in turn may lead to a destructive prayer. But if God still has a word or two for Elijah, then the mission is not yet over.
The act of starting in the spirit and ending in the flesh can also arise when men presumed a right for themselves in respect to their spiritual attainment, as in the case of Nadab and Abihu, Aaron’s sons, or from fear, anxiety, and, faithlessness in God as will be seen in this post
Heaven studies the heart and knows what it is we are truly passionate about. As new testament believers, we cannot overcome the enemy if there is one within us in form of anything we consider more precious to divine order.
While God will always speak plainly to us most of the time, it is our due diligence to be attentive enough in order to hear well. The Psalmist said in Psalm 62:11, “God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this…” This doesn’t necessarily mean God speaking the same thing […]
Becoming a follower of Christ may sound similar to believing in Jesus, little wonder you may hear people say, “I’m a follower of Christ” but can you take a moment to understand what it truly means to follow Christ? In the New Testament, when Christ called his first disciples, he […]
Does it really matter how we worship God? If a man with so much wealth, fame, and acquisition in this world should boast of those things, it can be understandable yet it is nothing compared to the Almighty God who indeed is the creator and owner of everything. A good […]
Does technology have a part to play in fulfillment of the great commission? The answer is, Yes, it does. Christ said in Mark 16:15-16 “…Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth […]
Do you have something to thank God for in 2020? In the midst of the pandemic, fears, scarcity, restrictions, economic and social lock-down, there is always a reason to be thankful. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning […]
To know the will of God for us is to know the mind of God at any given time, and this helps us choose the right paths in life.
Most people today spend more than half of their lives or all their entire life ignorant of the will of God for them. Maybe they’ve heard about it but couldn’t make anything out of it, or perhaps they were not given all the information that was needed to help them make a decision about God’s will for them.
Today’s exposition is titled, The blessing of waiting for the Lord. Psalm 40:1-2 One important attribute of God every believer should know is His patience. If we understand this, we will have a great, happy and fruitful relationship with him. Unlike man, God never rushes to do anything, and this […]
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.
