Speaking In Tongues

Speaking in tongues remains a controversial issue among Christians. Some believe this gift of the Holy Spirit is no longer needed and has ceased functioning while others believe speaking in tongue is needed and active in today’s Christian age. I would claim that speaking in tongue is not only the fulfilment of Christ’s prophecy as ...

Great Grace

“And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.” (Acts 4:33 NKJV) Grace, what we generally call ‘Unmerited Favor,’ is the kindness of God upon humankind which delivers us from our sinful lives. Grace is so powerful that it is by it ...

The Poor In Spirit

It is good to remind ourselves of Jesus’ first admonition to everyone in Matt. 4:17 saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” As He proceeded, Jesus taught His disciples and all listeners in Matthew 5, beginning with verse 3, saying, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Rightaway we see that those who will be fortunate to be ...

Dangers of Spiritual Sleep

A servant of God taught that the way to tell that we are not spiritually alert is “When we notice that we are more interested in the thing of the world (1 John 2:15). When we notice that we manifest more of the works of flesh (Gal. 5:19-21). When we are not hungry for spiritual ...

Usually those who passed the tests learnt endurance (James 1:3), moved closer to God in relationship and were rewarded. What ...

“Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save …”

This teaching is based on my understanding of Isaiah 59:1 Depending on the translation you use, the word ‘Surely’ may mean: Certainly; Listen; Behold; See; Look; etc. Speaking of the arm of the Lord, it is the power of God. We hear God saying to Moses in Num. 11:23 that His power / arm was ...

Wholeness in Christ

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ wants us to be whole and balanced in our relationship with Him. In Matt. 5:48 Jesus would say, “Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” I then claim that, for this type of relationship that Jesus wants us to have with Him to be ...

“…Our Transgressions are with us …”

The book of Isa. 59:12 says, “For our transgressions before you are many,and our sins testify against us. Our transgressions indeed are with us, and we know our iniquities:” Scripture: Judges 16:1-end Using the account in Judges 16 as a case study, we realize that when we live with sin as Samson lived with Delilah, ...

How to Get Instant Answers to Prayers

Using king Hezekiah as a case study, I’d like to state that that your lifestyle is a catalyst to receiving instant answers to prayers. Hezekiah became sick unto death and he only prayed a prayer that lasted 10 seconds and God heard him (Isa. 38: 1-6). This is a classical breakthrough prayer that God responded to immediately. ...
