In this article, I discuss the place of Mary in Scripture compared to the doctrines of RCC and how the doctrines are erroneous and not derived from proper exegesis of the canon of Scripture finalized at the council of Nicaea in 325 AD. The danger in false doctrines is that the one who posits them is apostate to God, which further leads those who believe the false doctrines to be true and continue to promote them apostacy. Come Judgment Day, those who renounce their faith in this way, will be among those to whom Jesus says,
Many Christian theologians say that there are three dimensions of God's presence. Knowledge of these dimensions help us grow our faith in Him. We can refer to these dimensions in the following ways: First, God is omnipresent or always present everywhere. Second, God manifests or shows Himself to His people. Third, He is indwelling or living in us.
Jesus says in Revelation 20:15, that anyone’s name not found in the book of life is thrown into the lake of fire. This will happen on the day of judgment, when all the dead from the sea, from death and Hades will be taken before Jesus will judge them according to what they have done and then Death and Hades are thrown into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:11-14).
A pastor was extended a letter of call by a church in one of our villages and upon his arrival, he announced the destruction of the church building at the beginning of his ministry as his to be prompt fulfilled project in church without examining the people and finances of the church. This was a building project worth six million to be carried out in a village. A year passed with little resources put in place, but with the church structure destroyed and the Christians had no permanent place of worship. The project took more than ten years to be realized, even without the presence of this minister (pastor), while the church members have gone through a lot of stress/pressure.
A curse is a negative force most often transmitted through negative words that predisposes its victim to unfortunate circumstances or results. When you observe one of these in your life or in your family, it can be an indication of a curse. Please, read the verses in Deuteronomy 28. A curse is like a long evil and invisible arm that pulls its victim backward, downward. A curse is a dark shadow blocking the God’s sunlight in the victim's life. The good news is that in Christ Jesus, God has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.
The Bible contains universal truths and revelations that can help us interpret times and seasons of our lives. More importantly, it helps us to know what we can do when we face hardships. God has written down what a man can do to move from a condition of curses to a life of blessings. You can choose a life of blessings and fulfilment today. The Bible shows us how to do that. Let's begin by seeing what a blessing is. A blessing is...
Hello Someone! God says, He chose you. You were not a mistake neither a coincidence; and besides there is no coincidence in Christ. God chose you even before you were conceived and appointed you for a great task- a task you can only fulfil in Christ Jesus at the right time. When things go well for others and seems bad on your side at the moment, don’t get sad; don’t lose hope.
The next important Covenant in the Bible is the Davidic Covenant. This Covenant was in reference to the Messiah who will come from the lineage of David and reign forever on His throne. That Son is Jesus Christ who again is called Son of David, one of the favorite names of Jesus Christ that appealed to the mercy of God.
There are two main kinds of trauma. One is medical trauma we experience as a result of a physical injury to our bodies. What follows is having to heal from the injury. However, we can also experience another kind of trauma as a result and it is also common.
Beloved God wants you to pay back evil with good, wrong with right and injustice with justice. For if you pay back evil with evil, you display an opposite nature of the Lord (the God of Mercy whose image you reflect); and as well give him no chance to avenge on your behalf.
We need to understand and appreciate God’s sovereign love for man through the different Covenants He initiated in the history of mankind in order for us to better serve Him. God operates by Covenants. Our text says, Remember the Lord your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant he confirmed to your ancestors with an oath. (Deut. 8:18).
Dating is an avenue towards marriage and that's why it's advisable to date right. Be purposeful with the person you choose to date. Maintain the mindset that the person you are dating or will date is the person you want to marry. Don't go into a relationship because everybody around you are in a relationship. Have the right mindset about dating before going into it. Dating is a means to get to know the other party better because you want to marry the person. People that go into relationships without purpose end up wasting each other's time. And in other to make the relationship work or feel connected to each other, they end up having sex.
In the School of healing or in the ministry of healing, we need to know that there is no barrier on God’s side. When Jesus died on the cross, the veil of the Temple was torn from top to bottom. The Holy of Holiest was then opened to give all men free access to the blessings, graces, mercies and glory of God, (Heb 4: 14-16)
The secret of greatness of all Christians in the kingdom of God is not their great faith, not their long prayers, but it is the depth of their love for God. These are men and women who gave themselves over to God out of love. What does it mean to love God? To love God means to have a deep affection and reverence for everything that concerns God: His name, His Word, His house, His people, His work and His purpose.
Judge MacLeish calls my co-defendant saying, “Gregory Banks, this court has found you guilty of 11 counts of aiding and abetting in the murder of 11 persons. Your victim statements each require you to serve 12 years in prison which you will serve concurrently.” He turns to me next, saying, “Claude Restault, this court has found you guilty of 11 counts of murder in the first degree. Your victim statements each require you to serve 12 years in prison for each count concurrently.”
Verse 1 of 2 chronicles chapter 20 shows us the first principle in overcoming the battles of life: Identify your enemy. This seems like a rather obvious principle but actually it isn’t. Many people simply do not know who their enemy is. They start mistrusting everyone. Often we think the enemy is some other person even our own family members. But they may not be the ones who are standing against us but for us. Many times the enemy is our own attitude the way we handle the situation. Before we can start winning our battles we have to know who are enemy is.
So a few weeks ago, he presented himself for training to fight this ongoing war against the enemy. He loves his people and his nation, but all he wants is change. But he cannot see any other way but to fight Israeli oppression in the name of Allah. He remembers that in his youth he heard that he will have a reward in heaven if he sacrifices his life for this Jihad
Gratitude is a powerful force that we can harness. It’s not like the power of an internal combustion engine harnessing the power of burning fuel, but it’s more powerful and far less complicated. Gratitude was one of the keys that led me to gain freedom from depression.
When joy displaces our depression, we need to give God the credit for bringing us here. We must also recognize that Jesus is the source of that joy. But how does God do this? Shalom is a Hebrew word that translates as peace,
Living a Transformed Life in Perilous Time. Transformed: to change into another form without altering the value. To change in appearance, character or nature. Peril: a situation of a serious and immediate danger. Something that caused or present danger.
