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.”

IDENTITY IN CHRIST: THE HABITATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Many Christians are quite familiar with their identity in Christ in terms of being “sons and daughters of God.” They know this and are confident in it. But where many of those Christians lose their ground is in acknowledging that their identity also includes them being the temple of God –by the reason of theContinue reading IDENTITY IN CHRIST: THE HABITATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH.

There is a place for rightly dividing the word of truth, as we study. 2 Timothy 2:15 made us understand that only when a man does this, can he truly be approved by God to represent Him. Before I go into what today’s post is about, I’ll give a brief explanation on why 2 Timothy 2:15 says what itContinue reading “RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH.”

STRIFE.

Strife simply means conflict, but a very strong one. It is more than disagreements and arguments. It embodies bitterness, unforgiveness, anger, and many other vices. We are in the last days Jesus predicted in Matthew 24 so, strife has now become the order of the day. Since the Christian nature and culture do not include strife, we must learn to guard our hearts againstContinue reading STRIFE.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SIN.

From the days of Adam and Eve to this present day, sin has been one thing that we have all been exposed to. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God and ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, sin came into the world. And ever since then, we all inherited that nature, right fromContinue reading THE TRUTH ABOUT SIN.

THE APPOINTED TIME.

With God, there is an appointed time for everything. When mankind fell in the garden of Eden, God promised salvation but it didn’t manifest until the appointed time. And even now, every believer is waiting for the appointed time of the return of Jesus Christ. (Genesis 3:15; 1 John 3:8) Today’s post is to encourageContinue reading THE APPOINTED TIME.

THE CROSS AND OUR SALVATION.

The very basis of Christianity is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Over 2000 years ago, God sent His Son to die for us. We were deep, deep in sin and the penalty for our sins was death. In other words, we were all going to die (eternally). But Jesus came to earthContinue reading “THE CROSS AND OUR SALVATION.”

LIVING A LIFE OF IMPACT.

As believers, we are called to impact the world. Even from the last post, it is evident that God is not pleased with us living a “quiet” life…a life likened to the blowing of wind. We must first do away with mediocrity if we want to live a life of impact. Believers are called theContinue reading “LIVING A LIFE OF IMPACT.”

GOD DOESN’T WANT YOU TO BE MEDIOCRE.

According to the Google English dictionary provided by Oxford languages, the word “mediocre” means of only average quality; not very good. Mediocrity is the state of being mediocre. When I first heard this word, I knew it was a state that God wouldn’t be pleased with. Then I found out that a synonym of theContinue reading “GOD DOESN’T WANT YOU TO BE MEDIOCRE.”

THAT I MAY KNOW HIM: COMING INTO THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.

Christians too often shout “God knows me” but have we ever sat down to evaluate whether we know Him? We are in the times where a basic knowledge of God just won’t cut it…it won’t be enough. “That I may know him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, beingContinue reading “THAT I MAY KNOW HIM: COMING INTO THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.”

CALLED TO DO THE “IMPOSSIBLE”.

I like to think of every believer as a superhuman because we live a life that is beyond the ordinary. So many things about the faith differentiate us from what the world would consider as normal. That’s why it’s a call to do the things which are classified impossible. For example, it does seem quiteContinue reading “CALLED TO DO THE “IMPOSSIBLE”.”
