The Obedience of Faith
      Baptism should be the first step of obedience in the life of a disciple, leading on to a lifetime of obedience - and this obedience must be the obedience of faith and not the obedience of reason. If Jesus had leaned upon His own reason, He would never ... read more

The Old Man and The New Man
      We have already seen how the old man was like an unfaithful servant who allowed the thieves to enter the home. That old man however has been crucified, put off and buried. There is a new man now within us, who says, "Behold I have come to do Thy will, O ... read more

The Opinion That 99% of Our Fellow-Believers Have About Us Can Be 100% Wrong
      In Rev 3:1 we read; and to the angel of the church in Sardis write; He who has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars says this; �I know your deeds, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. The messenger in Sardis was one ... read more

The Parables Of Jesus

The Pathway Of Increasing Light
      The will of God is that the path that His children walk on should be one of increasing light(Prov 4:12). For this purpose, He has given us His Word as a light for our pathway(Paslms 119:105). God has exalted His Word according to all His Name(Psalms 138:2 ... read more

The Presence Of God
      What is the primary mark of a new-covenant church? Many think that it is having a particular pattern of church government and a particular form of meeting. But it is neither of these. The important thing about the church is that it should have Divine life ... read more

The Primary Ministry Of The Holy Spirit

The Principle of Fellowship in Prayer
      In Chapter 2 of the book of Daniel, we read about a dream that Nebuchadnezzar had. Nebuchadnezzar called his wise men and told them, "Tell me what I dreamt and its meaning." Those wise men are a picture of preachers who have no touch with God, but who are ... read more

The Principle of Sacrifice
      In 2 Chronicles 3:1 , we read that "Solomon began to build the house of the Lord on Mount Moriah". Mount Moriah was the place where Abraham had offered his son Isaac to God (Gen. 22). There on that mountain Abraham understood God's way as the way of sacri ... read more

The Proof Of Our Faith
      Those who are eager to bring praise, glory and honour to Christ when He comes will be careful to make sure that when their faith is tested, it is genuine (1Pe.1:7). But it is generally difficult for human beings to live just by faith. We tend to look for ... read more

The QUALITY of our life is more important than the LENGTH of our life
      Our calling under the new covenant is not to live long on earth, but to complete the task God has assigned us before we leave. It is possible for a wholehearted brother to finish in 35 years what another good brother would take 70 years to complete. Even ... read more

The Real Test Of Our Spirituality

The Risen Lord
      In Rev 1: 12,13 when John turned around to see who was speaking, he saw Jesus. But he saw Him in the midst of the churches. It is through the local church that the Lord seeks to reveal Himself and to speak to others. The first dwelling-place of God men ... read more

The Sad Story of A Man Who Lost His Anointing

The Second Resurrection and the Final Judgment

The Self-Centered Person's Attitude To God
      The attitude of the self-centred life to God and to His service is characterised by a spirit of legalism. Self can try to serve God. It can be very active in such service too - but it is always legalistic service. It seeks a reward for the service it offe ... read more

The Seven Pillars Of Wisdom

      The Holy Spirit is sovereign and works in varied ways. Jesus said, " Just as you can hear the wind but can't tell where it comes from or where it will go next, so it is with the Spirit " (John 3:8-LB). You can't control the wind - either its speed or ... read more

The Spirit And The Cross
      There is perhaps no clearer description of the Spirit- filled life than in Paul's statement in Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ. It is no longer I but Christ that lives in me." For what is the purpose of the fullness of the Spirit if not to r ... read more

The Spirit of Grace and Power
      I want to speak today on grace and power in the Holy Spirit. I want to begin with the first promise in the New Testament. Yesterday I mentioned, that when we come to the Word of God, if we don’t come with an open mind, we may not see new truths. We’ll see ... read more

The Spirit Of Praise

The Spirit of Praise and Holiness
      In 2 Chronicles 20, we see a picture of how we can wage warfare against Satan. There we read of a great multitude that came against King Jehoshaphat. But Jehoshaphat did the right thing, when confronted by so many enemies. He got the whole nation of Judah ... read more

The Spirit Of Prophecy
      When God is present in our midst, we will hear Him speaking to us powerfully in the meetings. That is the meaning of prophecy. In old covenant times, prophecy was meant for foretelling the future and for guiding people as to what they should do. But now, ... read more

The Testing Of David
      God testified concerning David saying, "I have found David, a man after My own heart, who will do all my will" (Acts 13:22). Saul had been God's first choice as king of Israel. But Saul failed in both the tests that God gave him - through impatience (1 ... read more

The True Gospel and The False
      Christians are generally speaking, categorized into two groups as follows: (1) "Roman Catholics" and "Protestants" - depending on birth. (2) "Episcopal"(conformist) and "Free church" (non-conformist) - depending on church-pattern. (3) "Born ... read more

The Truth About Speaking in Tongues

The Truth Concerning Salvation
      The word of God speaks of "salvation" in three tenses - past (Eph. 2:8), present (Phil. 2:12) and future (Rom. 13:11) - or in other words, of justification, sanctification and glorification. Salvation has a foundation and a superstructure. The foundatio ... read more

The Truth That We Believe
      We are commanded in the Scriptures to pay close attention to ourselves and to our teaching, for only thus can we ensure salvation for ourselves and for those we preach to (1 Tim.4:16). Our life and our doctrine are like two legs that give stabili ... read more

The Variety of the Spirit's Working
      The Holy Spirit is likened to the wind in the Scriptures; and the wind blows in different ways at different times. "So is everyone who is born of the Spirit", Jesus said (Jn. 3:8). Each believer's experience will therefore be different in the external ... read more

The Video Tape Of Our Memory

The Word of God Divides Between Soul and Spirit

The Word of the Cross

There is a God-Ordained variety in the Body of Christ
      God uses our different temperaments and gifts to present a balanced picture of Christ to the world. By ourselves, each of us can at best present only a distorted and unbalanced image of Christ. Any single person's ministry, by itself, could produce unbala ... read more

Thine Is The Kingdom The Power And The Glory Forever

      "They will fight against you…They will not overcome you… I am with you to deliver you" (Jer 1:19). There are three things that are absolutely certain for the disciples of the Lord, as we see in the above verse. (1) Satan and his agents will fight agains ... read more

Three Challenging Psalms
      Psalm 1 describes the blessed man who avoids sinful paths and meditates on God's Word. It is not enough to avoid evil. The heart that has been cleansed of evil must be filled with God's Word. To meditate on God's Word day and night means to think frequent ... read more

      In Jeremiah 15:16-21, we see three conditions to be a spokesman for God. First of all: "Lord, I found Your words, and Your word has become for me the joy and delight of my heart" (Jer. 15:16). God's word must be the joy and delight of your heart. Just ... read more

Three Dangerous Sins
      1. Impurity: Impurity enters into our hearts mainly through our eyes and our ears. This impurity then comes out from our hearts and expresses itself through the various members of our bodies - primarily through our tongues and our eyes. Anyone who seek ... read more
