The Danger of Doing What Is Right in Your Own Eyes

The Danger of Using Our Human Reasoning in God's Work
      We can create a lot of confusion in God's work and in our own lives when we use our human reasoning and try to help God according to our own understanding. "The Lord said to Abraham, `Look towards the heavens, and count the stars. So shall your desce ... read more

The Deception Of Satan
      In Genesis 3:1, we can see how Satan attacks. It says there that the serpent was the craftiest of all the animals. Satan entered that serpent (just like the demons entered the pigs when Jesus cast them out of the man of Gadara). And Satan spoke to Eve thr ... read more

The Defeat Of Satan
      The greatest battle that ever took place on this earth is not written about in any of the world's history-books. It was on Calvary, when Jesus through His death defeated Satan, the prince of this world. One verse that we should never forget in our whole l ... read more

The Difference Between Old and New Covenant
      Let us look at a verse in Romans 6, which states the essential difference between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant in a nutshell. We read in Romans 6:14 : 'Sin shall not be master over you, when you are not under Law but under Grace'. The word 'Law' ... read more

The Difference between Old Covenant and New Covenant Servant
      In 2 Corinthians Chapter 3, Paul speaks about a new covenant servant. There is a vast difference between new covenant servants and old covenant servants. In the old covenant, there were a few prophets like Hosea, Isaiah and Ezekiel who had to go through s ... read more

THE END OF THIS AGE
      There was no clear understanding in Old Testament times about life after death and about God's plan for the future. But Jesus taught very clearly about both these matters. It's good for us to know about these matters too. After Death What? Death ... read more

The End of Time

The Faithful Remnant

The Fear of the Lord
      The church is pictured in the New Testament as a house that God is building; and (Proverbs 24:3) states that a house can be built only by wisdom. A disciple does not become wise by merely studying the Scriptures. That only increases his knowledge. It i ... read more

The First Resurrection and the Judgment Seat of Christ
      When Christ comes, all who belong to Him will be transformed in the twinkling of an eye. We will receive new bodies that can never age or die (1 Cor. 15:51-53). Our new bodies will be just like the body that Jesus Himself had after His resurrection (Phil. ... read more

The First Thing God Requires from Us is Honesty
      The Bible says in 1 John 1:7 that we cannot have fellowship with God if we do not walk in the light. If we walk in the light, we certainly can't hide anything, for the light exposes everything. The man who walks in darkness is the one who has something to ... read more

The Gifts Of The Holy Spirit
      There are three lists of spiritual gifts given us in the New Testament (1 Corinthians 12:8-10, Romans 12:6-8 and Ephesians 4:11). In 1 Corinthians 12:12-26, the exercise of spiritual gifts is compared with the functioning of the members of our physical bo ... read more

The Glorious Calling of Women as Mothers
      Adam called his wife 'Eve', because she was a mother. In the pure light of God's presence, in Eden, he knew clearly what his wife's ministry was. Eve knew it as well. Sin and human traditions (influenced by Satan) have now, however, clouded women's unders ... read more

The Glory of a True Servant of God
      "Behold, My Servant, whom I uphold." (Isa. 42:1). A true servant of God is one who is upheld by God, not by money or by an organization or any human agency. The Lord is the One Who should uphold us at all times. Men may give us gifts, but we must never de ... read more

The Glory of Dwelling in the Most Holy Place

      When Moses asked God to show him his glory, God replied saying, "I will make all my goodness pass before you" (Exod. 33:19). God's glory is His goodness. The New Testament makes clear that goodness is more than righteousness. In Romans 5:7, it says tha ... read more

The Glory of Jesus
      The Holy Spirit is one of the main themes of the New Testament, and the Holy Spirit is also one of the main themes in Isaiah 40 to 66. "Behold My Servant whom I uphold…" (Isa. 42:1). A true servant of God is one who is upheld by God, not by money or ... read more

The Grace of God

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit And God's Word

      "If you leave God's paths and go astray (to the right or to the left), you will hear a Voice behind you say, `No, this is the way; walk here'" (Isa. 30:20,21 - Living). The Voice referred to here is the voice of the Holy Spirit Who alerts us when we go ev ... read more

The Importance of Fellowship

The Importance of Sacrifice in Building the Body of Christ
      We would all like to have the authority that a man like Paul had. But to have that, we have to give up everything like he did and consider it all as worthless rubbish (Phil.3:7-9). Jesus said to the Father, "All that is Mine is Thine." And so He could ... read more

The Importance Of Total Obedience
      Saul was another man whom God chose to lead Israel. Saul never wanted to be a king. It was God Who placed him on the throne of Israel. And when the Israelites came to make him king, Saul hid himself, saying, "Who am I to be the king? My family is the lea ... read more

The Influence Of One Man
      "I searched for ONE MAN among them who should build up the wall and stand before Me........but I did not find even one man" (Ezek. 22:30). God has many tasks to accomplish in this world, and all of them are not of equal importance. For the unimportan ... read more

The Kingdom Of God

The marks of cultism
      "Let no-one defraud you of salvation's victory prize, no-one who indulges in assumed (false) humility and the cult of messenger-worship .... instead of keeping hold on the Head from which the whole body grows with God's increase"(Col.2:18,19 - Berkele ... read more

The Motive Of Our Consecration
