Over-comers

Over-comers

“He who overcomes” in Revelation 2:7 speaks in terms of a military conflict. Since the conflict of the church is not against “flesh and blood”, though instrumentalities of flesh and blood may often raise it (in addition to our own fleshly lusts and desires), our battle is against the root cause, “against principalities, against powers, […]

Have You Seen The Glory?

Have You Seen The Glory?

In Exodus 33:18-20 Moses asked God to be shown His glory, to which God replied that Moses would see His goodness and hear the proclamation of His name, but could not physically look on His face. In due time God sent Jesus to become a part of mankind, and through Him we can see God’s […]

Angels And Men

Angels And Men

Hebrews 1 shows clearly That Jesus is greater than angels, however angels have a vast role to play in our lives; verse 7 says He “makes His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire.” Ministers here comes from two Greek words meaning “people” and “work” hence whether applied to men or angelic spirits […]

His Presence For A New Year

His Presence For A New Year

In 2 Chronicles 15:2 Asa has inherited the throne of Judah, and Azariah is speaking in the power of prophetic voice, “Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you while you are with Him…” This absolute statement applies to every one of us throughout all ages as well, and is […]

“For Unto Us A Child Is Born”

“For Unto Us A Child Is Born”

  If we consider Christmas as a celebration of the birth of Jesus, let us consider what His birth really means. We have a tendency to focus our attention on the humble surroundings of that magnificent occurrence, the heavenly annunciations of it, and the visitors that came in witness of it. His birth was not […]

Celebrating “Christmas”

Celebrating “Christmas”

As we approach the Christmas holiday let us pause and think about the day we call “Christmas. First we are quite sure that Jesus was not born on December 25 or January 7 (Orthodox Christmas), and there is really no Biblical command to set aside a special day to celebrate His birth; now that does […]

Followers Of Jesus

Followers Of Jesus

As followers of the Lord Jesus we have been commissioned to carry on His ministry here on earth while He prepares a place for us in heaven (John 14:2-3). This is illustrated to us in the parable of the minas in Luke19:11-37 in which the nobleman equipped his servants and instructed them to “Do business […]

The Small Things Of Life

The Small Things Of Life

The Bible says “A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps” Proverbs 16:9; according to the Hebrew this means that He sets up and establishes our “pace or regular step(s).” Our regular steps I believe is in the little things of life, for our life is made up mostly of “little […]

A Message To God’s Children

A Message To God’s Children

The Bible has much to say about little children with reference to Christians. In Mark 10:13-16 people brought little children to Jesus to be touched by Him; the disciples apparently thought it was a hindrance and “rebuked” them, but Jesus “was greatly displeased” with that and said, “Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God […]

God Uses Human Interaction

God Uses Human Interaction

God did not create man to be a “loner”, isolated, or solitary. He made us with a need for each other and to interact with each other. When we have needs we call upon the Lord for help and find Him “A very present help …” Psalm 46:1. Indeed the Psalmist boldly proclaims, “My help […]
