Wrestling With God

So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man. Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.” But JacobContinue reading “Wrestling With God”

The Joy Of The Lord

Then he said to them, “Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 ESV If there’s one thing I’ve been learning andContinue reading “The Joy Of The Lord”

UNFEIGNED FAITH.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb. 11:1). So, what does it mean to have unfeigned faith? It means for one’s faith to be unwavering. In other words, it means genuine and sincere faith. It doesn’t necessarily mean that your faith won’t shake, issues of life may cause itContinue reading UNFEIGNED FAITH.

THE MIND OF CHRIST.

N.B: heart and mind may be used interchangeably in this article. It all starts with the mind. Many psychologists would tell you what you allow into your mind is what you become. Even scripture backs this up with Proverbs 23:7 that says as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Again scripture saysContinue reading THE MIND OF CHRIST.

THE DANGER OF UNBELIEF.

According to Google, unbelief means “lack of religious belief; an absence of faith.” Without much discussion, we can already tell what the danger of unbelief is. From our study last week, we were made to understand that without faith, no man can please God (Heb. 11:6). If we are then living in unbelief, it means weContinue reading THE DANGER OF UNBELIEF.

IN ALL WISDOM.

You can be vast in knowledge and still be so unwise. Knowledge can exist without wisdom, but wisdom is always full of knowledge. Knowledge is knowing that you have a gun, but wisdom is knowing how to use it and when to use it. Fools can also have knowledge. The Pharisees were very knowledgeable yetContinue reading “IN ALL WISDOM.”

THE UNITY OF THE CHURCH.

A popular saying goes “united we stand, divided we fall”. This saying could also be applied to the church. By “church” I don’t mean the building or a denomination. What I mean by “the church” is the body of believers worldwide…those who are the sons (and daughters) of God. The body of Christ is notContinue reading “THE UNITY OF THE CHURCH.”

THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

If there is one thing this blog emphasizes, it is love. This is because the bedrock of Christianity is love…since God is love. The scripture says by their fruits we shall know them (Matt. 7:16). An apple tree is identified by the fruits it produces. Jesus Christ, just before His ascension told the disciples (andContinue reading THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

ALL THAT YOU NEED FOR LIFE AND GODLINESS.

His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue. 1 Peter 1:3 KJV One amazing thing about the gospel is its completeness. The good news for every believer is the finished work of Christ. This meansContinue reading “ALL THAT YOU NEED FOR LIFE AND GODLINESS.”

THE WORDS OF OUR TESTIMONY.

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” Revelations 12:11 For four weeks now, this blog has looked into “prayer” from different aspects. What comes next after prayer is the word of our testimony. Your testimony isContinue reading “THE WORDS OF OUR TESTIMONY.”

PRAYER: INTERCESSION.

“The Lord restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.” Job 42:10 AMP The basis of intercession is love. It would be hard to intercede for anyone you do not love. Christianity is all about love and when we intercedeContinue reading “PRAYER: INTERCESSION.”

PRAYER: Praying in the Spirit.

“And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:4 Praying in the Spirit –commonly called speaking in tongues –is a spiritual experience inspired by the Holy Spirit. A lot of controversy surrounds this phenomenon of speaking in tongues but theContinue reading PRAYER: Praying in the Spirit.

PRAYER: EXPECTATIONS.

Last week, we discussed prayer. This week’s blog post follows in the same vein but from a different angle. When we pray, we must do so with expectation. Do not just mumble words to God without having any hope of it coming into fulfillment. Always be expectant. For clarification, faith is different from expectation. FaithContinue reading PRAYER: EXPECTATIONS.

PRAYER.

“Pray without ceasing” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 This is a cliché topic for any Christian-faith-related content. Nonetheless, it is very important. This topic can never be overemphasized. As we learned last week, prayer is one of the methods which we use to exercise power in the spirit realm. It is a weapon of our warfare. AContinue reading PRAYER.

EMPOWERED, YET POWERLESS.

This study can be split into two: “knowing what you carry” and then “knowing how to channel it.” But in this blog post, I would be combining both. A more focused post may come out later on. Christians carry weapons of warfare but many are ignorant of them. A key weapon Satan is using toContinue reading “EMPOWERED, YET POWERLESS.”
