MAN’S NEED OF REDEMPTION.

What is redemption? Redemption is the state of being freed from the power of evil. Redemption means a New Creation in the spirit of man. It is the giving of a New Nature; a New Life to man. Man has lost God’s Nature, Fellowship and the Authority given to him and became spiritually dead which made God drove him out […]

Week 5: God, the jealous lover

Originally posted on ElizabethFolakemi:
People may look at the title  and think I’ve finally lost it lol but let me explain. In the book of Exodus (34 vs 14) we see God telling the israelites not to worship any god aside from Him because He is jealous. In that day and age other gods were far from scarce and hard to find, whether they be golden calves or ashtoreth poles. Now, people think because they are not bowing their heads down to a pole or random statue that they are not arousing God’s jealous nature. Wrong! So many times we idolise man made things (phones, social media etc) and allow them to take presidence over reverence to God (i.e. texting/whatsapping in church). At times we even worship mere humans like ourselves. We must stop this. God must be above all things. Seldom would we interupt a conversation with friends for something insignificant so why do we do this with God. All these materials and people can do nothing for us in light of eternity. Now I am in no way saying we should become unsociable hermits but we are told to cut off whatever causes us to sin right? If you are honest with your self and know that time with your phone outweighs time with God, discipline yourself and cut it off for some time, same with social media. If you know that your admiration of someone is becoming…

NON RINUNCIARE

La Bibbia è piena di numerosi miracoli gloriosi. In tutto il ministero di Gesù, la Scrittura rivela molte occasioni in cui il soprannaturale intervenne nella vita dell’uomo e della donna. Dal trasformare l’acqua in vino (non alcoliche) a Canaan, al risuscitare la figlia di Giairo dalla morta, ha portato aiuto e speranza a vite disperate. “E Gesù andava attorno per tutta la Galilea, insegnando nelle loro sinagoghe, predicando il vangelo del regno e curando ogni sorta di malattia e ogni sorta di malattie tra la gente” (Matteo 4:23) Sanando ogni malattia e ogni sorta di malattie e non c’era nessuna situation difficile da guarire per Gesù. Egli aveva potere su tutte le malattie. Gesù ha risposto al grido disperato di Bartimèo cieco, in Marco 10:46-52 quando ha chiesto, che cosa vuoi che faccia per te?” Bartimèo ha risposto: “Signore, che io possa ricevere la mia vista.” E Gesù disse: “Va’, la tua fede ti ha guarita. «E subito riacquisì la vista e seguì Gesù. Le scritture dichiarano che «Dio non ha riguardo alla qualità delle persone” (Atti 10:34-35). Se la guarigione è stata estesa ad una sola persona come in tanti casi in tutta la Bibbia, allora è a disposizione di tutti. I miracoli non sono concessi in modo selettivo su quelli ritenuti degni, ma sono a disposizione di ogni uomo, donna, bambino, ragazza e comprende anche te! Il potere di guarigione di Dio non si limita ad un lasso […]

Your Heart & Your Thoughts Determines The Life You Live. Proverbs 4:20-27.

The Bible has warned us not to do evil, in this same verse teaches us how to do well. It is not sufficient only to avoid the occasion of sinning but we should study the methods of avoiding them. 1. We must have a continual regard to the word of God and endeavor that it may be always ready to us. Wisdom & understanding must be our principle guide & teacher. Proverbs 4:7. We must receive them readily: ” incline thy ear to them, humbly bow to them; diligently listen to them.” The attentive hearing of the word of God is a good sign of a work of grace begun in the heart and a good means of carrying it on. We must retain them carefully and lay them before us as ” Our Rule.” ” Let them not depart from thy eyes; view them, review them and in everything aim to conform to them.” We must lodge them within us as a commanding principle, the influences of which are diffused throughout the whole man: ” keep them in the midst of thy heart, as things dear to thee, and which thou art afraid of losing.” Let the word of God be written in the heart, and that which is written there will remain. – The reason why we must thus make much of the words of wisdom is because they will both food and physic to us, like the […]

DON’T GIVE UP!!

. The Bible is filled with glorious accounts of miracles. Throughout the ministry of Jesus, scripture reveals many occasions on which the supernatural intervened in the lives of man and woman. From turning water into wine (non-alcoholic) at Canaan, to raising Jairus’s daughter from dead, he brought help and hope to desperate lives. “And Jesus went about all galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of diseases among the people” (Matthew 4:23) Healing all manner of sickness and all manner of diseases and there was no condition that was too difficult for Jesus to heal. He had power over all diseases. Jesus responded to the desperate cry of blind Bartimaeus in mark 10:46-52 when he asked, what wilt thou that I should do unto thee? “Bartimaeus responded, “Lord that I might receive my sight.” And Jesus said. “Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole.” And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus. Scriptures declares that “God is no respecter of persons” (Acts 10:34-35). If healing was extended to one person as it is in so many instances throughout the Bible, then it is available to all. Miracles are not selectively bestowed upon those deemed worthy but are available to every man, woman, boy, girl and that includes you! Gods healing power is not limited to a time frame in history or to certain […]
