Being Faithful With Money
      What did Jesus mean when He said that we were to give to God what was due to God? Did He mean that we were to give Him our tithes (10% of our income). Under the old covenant, that was all that the Israelites had to give to God. That was God's due. Once t ... read more

Being Like A Little Child
      In Isaiah 11:6, we are told that during the 1000-year reign of Jesus on earth, when He returns, everything will be peaceful. There will be no wild animals, and life on earth will be simply wonderful. But we have a foretaste of that life in the church alre ... read more

Being Merciful
      We all have a flesh and we are living among others who have a flesh. And so we are constantly liable to injure one another knowingly and unknowingly. The only place where we'll never get hurt by anyone is in heaven. And so we need to forgive one another ... read more

Being Ready For The Coming Of The Lord
      When we think of the return of Christ to this earth, the important thing is not to know the exact date, but to be spiritually ready for His return. Many who are familiar with the prophecies concerning His coming, are not purifying themselves daily to His ... read more

Being Secure In The Love Of God
      The root cause of all our spiritual problems lies in our not knowing God as a Loving Father and a Sovereign God. One truth that has revolutionized my Christian life is the glorious revelation that Jesus gave us that the Father loves us just as He loved Hi ... read more

Being Thankful is one of the Signs of Spiritual Growth
      I read of a young man who was converted, but who was not wholehearted for the Lord. One day he had a dream in which he saw himself dying and entering heaven. There he saw the word "FORGIVEN" written across the record of his life. He rejoiced that he was f ... read more

Being "In The Spirit"
      In Revelation Chapter 1:9,10 it is written : I, John, your brother and fellow-partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos, because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. I was in the ... read more

Bless the others and disappear - Seek to be Unknown
      One characteristic of God's nature is that He hates all display and advertisement. It is written about God in the book of Isaiah 45:15, "Truly Thou art a God who hides Thyself, O God." God wants to make us like Himself - partaking of His nature that loves ... read more

      I thank God for the liberty I’ve had these last two days. And I’ve felt that where I have liberty, this means there are responsive hearts open to the voice of the Holy Spirit. I want to read a verse first in James, chapter 4, verse 5. It says, "Do yo ... read more

Christ-like Love
      Jesus gave His disciples a new commandment just before He went to the cross. They were to love one another as He had loved them (Jn. 13:34). It is this last phrase that makes Jesus' command impossible to fulfill without God's grace. What is the distinc ... read more

Clear Your Debt to the Whole World and to the Church
      In 2 Kings 4:1 to 7, we read of a preacher's widow who was in debt. It's a sad thing when husbands die and leave their wives with a debt. That's something all of us should avoid at any cost. And preachers especially should avoid getting into debt because ... read more

Conscious and Unconscious Sin
      There is also a difference between falling into sin and having sin. To have sin is to have unconscious sin in our personality - sin that we ourselves are unaware of, even though others who are more mature than us may be able to notice it in us. But such u ... read more

Consider Others As More Important Than Yourself
      Jesus identified Himself totally with man. He was not ashamed to be a man. The Bible says He's not ashamed to call us His brothers. Sometimes we feel superior to other people. We feel we are more educated or we belong to a higher class of society. All thi ... read more

Continuous Enlargement
      The Spirit-filled life is a life that is continuously seeking greater degrees of fulness. " I am pressing on," says Paul, nearly thirty years after his conversion, and as he was drawing to the end of his life (Phil. 3:14). He still has not attained. He ... read more

Daily Transformation
      We read in Genesis 1 about the re-making of the corrupted, spoilt, dark, empty earth. And by the time you come to the end of the chapter, it has become a beautiful earth once again. God Himself could look at it and say, "It is very good." Genesis 1 has ... read more

Daniel Passed Two Great Tests
      Daniel was tested when the wise men could not interpret the King's dream, and the King passed an order to destroy all the wise men of Babylon (Daniel 2:1- 13). When Daniel heard this, he was calm and he handled the situation with great wisdom (Daniel 2:14 ... read more

      There is a lot of deception in Christendom these days through false signs and wonders – just as Jesus warned us in Matthew 24:24, and as Paul did in 2 Thessalonians 2:9. Paul also warned us in 2 Corinthians 11:1-4 about the nature of this deception: I ... read more

Defiling The Church With Impurity
      "The e forces (of the antichrist) will defile the holy place and put a stop to the daily sacrifices......He will flatter those who disregard the covenant of God, and thus win them over to his side. "But the people who know their God will be strong and do ... read more

Destroy Satan's Fortresses in Your Mind
      When David sees Goliath threatening Israel, notice his intense concern for the glory of God's name and the honour of God's people: "Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should taunt the armies of the living God?" (1 Sam 17:26). While the Israelite ... read more

Develop the Habit of Listening to God
      In Luke 17:26-30, Jesus tells us that the last days will be like the days of Noah and of Lot, in which people ate, drank, bought, sold, planted, built, and so on. Have you noticed that none of these things are sinful in themselves? They are all legitimate ... read more

Develop the Habit of Listening to God
      God speaks to us through many ways. He speaks to us primarily through His Word. If something is clearly written in God's Word, then we don't need to pray to find God's will, because it has already been revealed. God also speaks to us through our circum ... read more

      When Jesus told His apostles to go into every nation and to make disciples, they had no doubt in their minds as to what He meant. (Matt. 28:19). For He had already explained what it meant to be His disciple. Luke 14: 25-35 reveals most clearly the thre ... read more

Divine Discipline
      In order to fulfil His promises to Jacob, God had to discipline him severely. Jacob required twenty years of Divine chastening to come to the point where he would accept God's highest for his life. First of all, God placed alongside another shrewd person ... read more

Do Not Adulterate the Word of God
      In 2 Cor. 4:2, we read Paul saying "We have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God." We can never come into God's rest, if there is anything of dishonesty or craftiness in our lives. In t ... read more

Do You Accuse or Do You Intercede?
      We read in Revelation 12:10 that Satan is the `Accuser of the brothers', and that he accuses them before God day and night. This is a full time ministry that Satan is engaged in. And in this ministry he has many co-workers - both among his evil spirits as ... read more

Do You Accuse or Do You Intercede?
      We read in Revelation 12:10 that Satan is the `Accuser of the brothers', and that he accuses them before God day and night. This is a full time ministry that Satan is engaged in. And in this ministry he has many co-workers - both among his evil spirits as ... read more

Doing the Will of God Consistently
      "I came down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him Who sent Me" (Jn.6:38). Jesus tells us here in His own words what He came on earth to do. And in this one sentence, we have a description of how Jesus lived every single day of His li ... read more

Don’t Be Impressed by the Numerical Growth of a Church
      We must remember that God is not impressed by the numerical growth of a church, if it is not growing spiritually. Paul told the Christians at Corinth that God would humble him through their carnal state (Read 2 Cor.12:20, 21). Why shouldPaul feel humiliat ... read more

Don’t Miss God’s Will in Your Marriage
      God alone can lead you to the person best suited to be your life-partner. In fact He is eager to do so if you will listen to Him. The Bible teaches that God has a plan for the lives of each of His children (Eph. 2:10). If that is true, then you cannot but ... read more

Don’t Remain As a Baby in the Christian Life
      In Hebrews 6:1-3, the writer speaks about pressing on to maturity. In Chapter 5, he uses the illustration of drinking milk and eating meat. Now he uses two more illustrations: First, the example of elementary teaching and advanced teaching; and then the e ... read more

Don’t View Others with Contempt
      "Jesus spoke this parable to some people who viewed others with contempt" (Luke 18:9). There are various reasons why people view others with contempt. They may have been taught by their parents from childhood to look down on others who are inferior in ... read more

Don't Let Past Failures Discourage You
      In Luke 18:13 - NASB, The tax-collector prayed saying "God be merciful to me THE sinner." He called himself, "THE sinner". What he meant was that he felt that everyone around him was a saint compared to him! In his eyes, he was THE ONLY SINNER on the ... read more

Don’t let men move you. Let God alone move you
      In Genesis 12:1, we see the beginning of the building of the true Jerusalem. This began with Abraham through whom came the nation of Israel, the capital of which was Jerusalem. There would have been no Jerusalem if there had been no Abraham. We observe in ... read more

      The Bible says that God elected us to be His children according to his foreknowledge (1 Pet. 1:1,2). This means that He knew from all eternity past those who were going to be His children. The Bible also says that God chose us in Christ "before the fo ... read more

Election And Justification
      The Bible says that God elected us to be His children according to his foreknowledge (1 Pet. 1:1,2). This means that He knew from all eternity past those who were going to be His children. The Bible also says that God chose us in Christ "before the found ... read more

Elisha's Faithfulness
      God anointed Elisha with a double portion of the anointing that Elijah had. This was God's seal of approval on Elisha's life. But before God anointed him thus, he had been tested. As in the case of all true servants of God, Elisha too was called to the ... read more

Encouragement In Tribulation
      Jesus said in John 16:33 "In the world YOU HAVE TRIBULATION. But take courage; I have overcome the world" . He never promised that we would escape tribulation - whether small tribulations or the great one. But He did say that we could overcome even as H ... read more

Encouraging Others
      Paul and Barnabas strengthened the souls of the disciples in the churches they had established, by encouraging them. (Acts 14:22). We too can strengthen others through a ministry of encouragement - not only through the preaching of the Word, but also by o ... read more

End the Year with a Spirit of Thanksgiving
      In each of the 7 glimpses of heaven given in the book of Revelation, we see the inhabitants of heaven continuously praising God with a loud voice - sometimes as loud as thunders and as the noise of roaring rivers. This is the atmosphere of heaven - one of ... read more

Enoch Pleased God
      In just three words the Holy Spirit records the testimony of Enoch's life: "He pleased God" (Heb. 11:5). There is no mention of wealth amassed or of earthly honours obtained. There is no record of sermons preached or of good deeds done, nor even of the ... read more

Entering The Life Of Victory
      The Lord told Joshua that every place on which his feet trod would be given to him (Joshua 1:3), and that no man would be able to stand before him throughout his life (Joshua 1:5). This is symbolic of the New Testament promise given us in Romans 6:14. "No ... read more

Every Disciple of Jesus Should Acknowledge Him Publicly
      It is written in Revelation 14:1 "And I looked and behold the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads." What we see here is in striking con ... read more

Every Mountain Will Be Flattened (Zech.4:6,7)
      In God's work, we will face hindrances and obstacles of many types. We may wonder why God allows us to face such mountains, when we are wholeheartedly seeking to do His will alone. But God's purpose is to exercise our faith, so that we can experience Hi ... read more

      Repentance is the first part of the foundation of the Christian life. Faith is the second. To have faith in God means to trust Him and to believe what He has said in His Word, in spite of what our feelings may tell us or what other people may tell us. ... read more

Faith to Fulfil all of God's Will
      I will speak this morning about faith. In my own life, this was something I couldn’t understand for many years. In the earlier part of my life and even the earlier part of my Christian life. And I wanted to get an answer from the Word of God, because I sa ... read more

Faith to Receive God's Gifts
      God has many wonderful things to give us. All His gifts are gifts of grace. But we need faith to receive those gifts. The Bible says we are saved "by grace through faith" (Eph. 2:8). Grace is God's Hand reaching down to us loaded with the blessings ... read more

Faithfulness In Serving Our Fellow Believers
      In Matt. 25:31-46 Jesus deals with our attitude towards our fellow believers in need. That need may be spiritual or physical. Here we see that some inherit the kingdom because they served their fellow believers as unto the Lord. Their service was so much ... read more

Faithfulness In The Hidden Life
      (Matt. 25:1-13). In this parable, Jesus spoke of ten virgins. Notice that none of them were harlots (See Jas. 4:4 for a definition of spiritual harlotry). They were all virgins. In other words, they had a good testimony before men. Their lights were all b ... read more

      The most valuable brother and sister in any church is the one who can bring the atmosphere of heaven into a church and who can build fellowship in that church. And such a person need not necessarily be one of the elder brothers. All of us have the oppo ... read more

      We have already seen that God wants to transform us into the likeness of Christ. But this transformation doesn't take place in us in isolation from other disciples of Jesus. It is only along with them that we are transformed. God wants us to live, not ... read more
