Fellowship And Unity
      Love is the primary mark of Jesus' disciples. So fellowship between the disciples of Jesus is vital. In Matthew 18:18-20, we read of the power that results from such fellowship among the disciples of Jesus. A paraphrase of those verses would read somethi ... read more

Fellowship With Jesus
      I'd like to turn to the Word of God in Revelation Chapter 4. After the Lord had given John a revelation of Himself in Chapter 1, He gave John an insight into the actual state of many of the churches in that part of the world - in Chapters 2 and 3. As ... read more

Fifth Requirement For Spiritual Progress -The Body Of Christ
      Under the new covenant, God has not intended that we should be lone Christians living by ourselves - even if we are living in victory over sin. God's will is that there should be a Body of disciples of Jesus manifesting His glory together. There is a ... read more

Fifty Marks Of Godly Men
       1. Godly men stand before God's face and hear His voice daily; 2. Godly men have no desire in their heart for anyone or anything other than God Himself; 3. Godly men fear God so greatly that they hate sin in every form and love righteousness and ... read more

Fighting The Good Fight
      "Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of eternal life" (1 Tim 6:12) We can take hold of etneral life (the divine nature) only as we fight the good fight of faith. And if we want to fight that good fight, then we must do all we can to avoid fighting ... read more

Finances
       Now this session, in continuation of submission to God’s authority, we want to consider submission to God’s principles in the area of finance, and money, and mammon in general. I want to show you a few verses concerning some fundamental principles in thi ... read more

Find Your Security 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

Finishing With Sin
      The first step in this race is to stop sinning consciously. Under the Law, there was no exhortation to stop sinning. But under the new covenant, all the apostles are agreed that the twofold message of the gospel is exactly as Jesus put it : freedom from c ... read more

First Requirement For Spiritual Progress-The Blood Of Christ.
      As we begin a new year, let us determine that we shall not backslide any more, but progress - to know God, to walk in fellowship with Him and with our fellow-believers, and to be more available to Him for His service in the coming year, than we have ever ... read more

Five Main Reasons Why Many Believers are not Baptised in the Holy Spirit
      There are FIVE main reasons why many believers are NOT baptized in the Holy Spirit: (1) They have been INTELLECTUALLY CONVINCED by some theological argument that they were baptized in the Spirit when they were born again. And even though they are defea ... read more

Five Sins that Jesus hated most
      As we grow spiritually, we will discover that the righteousness of God is not primarily external, and that sin too is not primarily external. When we talk about righteousness, most people think of the stand- ard mentioned in the ten commandments. But righ ... read more

Four Important Distinctions We Need to Know
      1. Temptation and Sin : There is a difference between being tempted and sinning. The Bible says, "Each one is tempted when he is enticed by his own lust. Then when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin…" (Jas.1:14, 15). Sin is not born in our heart ... read more

Four Reasons Why God Blessed Jacob
      1. Alone with God: Jacob was blessed in the place where he was alone with God. He sent everyone else away and was alone (Gen. 32:24). 20th century believers find it difficult to spend much time alone with God. The spirit of the jet- age has got into most ... read more

Four Types of Backsliders
      The Bible says that one of the signs of the end-times will be a great apostasy (falling away from the faith) (2 Thess.2:3). Backsliding has become a very common feature in all churches now. Jesus spoke about four types of backsliders in the three parab ... read more

Fourth Requirement For Spiritual Progress-The Way Of The Cross
      Jesus, as our Forerunner (One Who has run the same race ahead of us), has opened a way for us to enter the Father's presence and dwell there all the time. This way is called "the new and living way" (Heb.10:20). Paul speaks of it as "always carryin ... read more

Freedom from Fear
      One of the first things we read that happened to Adam as soon as he sinned, and when God came and spoke to him, was that he got afraid. It’s the first time that fear is mentioned in the Bible. When God came to him and He asked where he was hiding among th ... read more

Freedom from Perpetual Backsliding
      In the book of Judges, we read of 13 judges whom God raised up in chapters 3 to 16. The fourteenth judge was Samuel whom we read about in 1 Samuel. The names of most of these judges are not so well known. The first judge was a man called Othniel who wa ... read more

Freedom From Selfishness
      God is looking for men and women even today in our land, who will stand in the gap for the church - selfless people, who are not taken up with just their own needs, but who are concerned about God's work. Many believers think that sanctification means ju ... read more

Freedom from the Spirit of the World
      Separation from the world is a leading theme of the New Testament. Before He went to the cross Jesus told His disciples that they did not belong to the world. Jesus was Himself one apart - "not of this world." And He affirmed that His disciples were just ... read more

Fulfilling God’s Purpose for Our Life
      "But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, tha ... read more

Fulfilling Our Calling
      Spirit-filled service is a service that fulfils God's specific calling. In Colossians 1:23, 25, Paul says, " I am made a minister;" and in 1 Timothy 2:7, " I am ordained an apostle " - ordained by the nail pierced Hands of Jesus, and not by any earth ... read more

Giving Up All Our Possessions
      The third condition of discipleship is that we must give up all our own possessions. Jesus said, "No one of you can be My disciple who does not give up all his own possessions" (Lk. 14:33). Our possessions are what we possess as our own. To give them ... read more

Glory Of God
      God IS Love. It is not that He just acts lovingly. He IS in His very essence LOVE. The glory of God as seen in Jesus, manifests this clearly. Jesus did not just perform acts of love. He went about "doing good" (Acts 10:38). But that was because the love ... read more

God and Mammon
      It is interesting to see that even though Jesus referred to Satan as "the ruler of this world" (John 14:30), He never referred to Satan as the alternative master to God, whom people have the choice of serving. When Jesus spoke of two masters whom man co ... read more

God Calls Those Who Are Faithful in Their Secular Work to Serve Him
      Amos started prophesying about 40 years after Elisha. If Gehazi (Elisha's servant) had not chased after Naaman's money and thus ruined himself, it is possible that he may have got a double portion of Elisha's anointing and become the next prophet in Israe ... read more

God Calls "Zeroes"
      In 1 Corinthians 3:5, Paul asks the question "What then is Apollos and what is Paul?". We would reply that Paul was a mighty apostle of the Lord, who had raised the dead, established many churches, and even written Scripture. But he says of himself, "W ... read more

God Can Give You Wisdom to Handle Any Problem
      The Bible says there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother, and that is Jesus Christ. So when we know God as a Father Who cares, we are no longer orphans. An orphan is a person who has got no father and mother. If he has a need suddenly, whom can ... read more

God Controls Our Circumstances
      In the book of Esther, we read of how God rescued the Jews from being slaughtered as a race. But it is amazing to see how God did it - through one small incident - that the king could not sleep one night. Haman and his wife had been plotting one night to ... read more

God Does Not Want Our Offerings, But Our Body as a Living Sacrifice
      In Hebrews 10:5, we read that "God doesn't want our offerings." I quote this verse to people who have suffered under preachers who have kept on telling them that God wants their offerings. What does it say here that God desires from us? - Our bodies. Unde ... read more

God Dwells in a Home Where There Is Peace, Humility and Holiness
      In Exodus 25:8, we see for the first time, God revealing His will that He wants to dwell with man. "Let them construct a sanctuary…that I may dwell among them." That was referring to the tabernacle upon which the fire of God rested - the glory of God th ... read more

God Has Appointed "Helps" In The Church
      "You are Christ's body, and individually members of it. God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues" (1 Cor.12:27,28) Every pe ... read more

God Helps Those Who Are Weak
      The world says that God helps those who help themselves. But the Bible says that God helps those who are UNABLE to help themselves. He is the God of the weak and the helpless. He calls Himself the God of the widows, orphans and strangers. Deuteronomy 10:1 ... read more

God is Dependent on Broken Men for His Work on Earth
      We see in Exodus 1:22, that it was because Pharaoh had passed an order that all male babies should be killed, that Moses' mother put Moses into a little basket and floated it down the river with a prayer to God. If it were not for that evil edict, she wou ... read more

God is on the Throne
      In Revelation 4:2 John says “I was in the Spirit; and behold, a throne was standing in heaven, and One sitting on the throne”. This is how God lifts us up also in the Spirit so that we can see the things of earth from a heavenly standpoint! As we appro ... read more

God Loves Us As He Loved Jesus
      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

GOD NEEDS MEN
      GOD NEEDS MEN God needs men today - *** men who will stand before His face and hear His voice daily, *** men who have no desire in their heart for anyone or anything other than God Himself, *** men who fear Him so greatly that they hate sin in ... read more

God Needs Men
      God needs men today - men who will stand before His face and hear His voice daily, men who have no desire in their heart for anyone or anything other than God Himself, men who fear Him so greatly that they hate sin in every form and love righteousnes ... read more

God Needs Women
      God needs women today who will faithfully portray through their lives, the glory that He originally intended to manifest through a woman, when He created Eve. Her Glory As Man's Helper When God made Eve, it was in order that she might be a helper s ... read more

God Uses Those Who Have Failed
      Peter could become a compassionate apostle only after he had blundered and fallen into the sin of denying the Lord three times. It was certainly not God's perfect will for Peter to sin like that. But yet we see that God allowed it in order to do a work i ... read more

God Was Well-Pleased With Him
      When Jesus was thirty, the Father spoke these words about Him publicly from heaven, "This is my beloved Son in Whom I am well-pleased." (Mt. 3:17). And that was at a time when Jesus had not done a single miracle or even preached a single sermon! What ... read more

God will Either Open or Close the Door at the Right Time for Overcomers
      In Rev 3:7 The Lord describes Himself as the One who can open or shut any door. ("And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: He who is holy, who is true, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opensï ... read more

God's Perfect Plan For Those Who Have Failed
      There are many brothers and sisters who feel that because they have sinned and failed God at some time in their past lives, therefore they cannot fulfil God's perfect plan for their lives now. Let us look at what the Scriptures have to say on this mat ... read more

God's Blessing or God's approval
      There are two types of believers - those who seek only God's blessing and those who seek God's approval; and there is a world of difference between the two. In Rev. 7:9-14, we read of a great multitude of believers - so vast that they cannot even be num ... read more

God's Dealings Are All In Love
      God has always required obedience to His commandments from man. In the Old Covenant, the Israelites were given commandments to obey. But they discovered that they could not keep God's laws perfectly. Under the New Covenant, God promises to write His laws ... read more

God's Guidance Through Circumstances Of Life
      God is the God of Providence. He can control our circumstances and thereby indicate His will. He allows certain things to befall us, either to confirm the guidance we have received through the witness of the Spirit, or to stop us from taking a wrong step. ... read more

God's Perfect Plan For Those Who Have Failed
      There are many brothers and sisters who feel that because they have sinned and failed God at some time in their past lives, therefore they cannot fulfil God's perfect plan for their lives now. Let us look at what the Scriptures have to say on this mat ... read more

God's Plan for our Lives
      God has a perfect plan for our lives. And He wants to guide us into fulfilling it. The most blessed life that we can ever live on earth is one in which we fulfil that plan completely. In choosing a career or in marriage, how wonderful it is to know that G ... read more

God's Plan For Your Life
      Man's greatest honour and privilege is to do the will of God. This was what the Lord Jesus taught His disciples. He once said that only those who did His Father's will would enter the kingdom of Heaven (Matt. 7:21). He also said that His true brothers a ... read more

God's Purpose For Us
      Most of us came to Christ at first with some selfish motive - to get some benefit for ourselves - perhaps healing, or deliverance from hellfire. But God still received us, in spite of that selfish motive. The father of the prodigal son loved him so much, ... read more

God's Righteousness
      Israel had great zeal for God (Rom.10:3) - but it was zeal without a knowledge of God, for they did not understand that God's righteousness could not be produced by their own efforts. This was essentially where they failed. And this is where many Christi ... read more
