On Thrones and Crowns

“for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God.” (1 Peter 1:23, NASB95) So, you have believed in your heart that God raised Jesus from the grave and confessed Jesus as Lord…now what? “that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God...

The Names of God – Pt 1

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1, NASB95) In the original language of the Bible are certain different names of God. They reveal God’s character and teach us more about Him. How fitting to choose Genesis 1:1 to find the first word for us to study which is translated into the English word “God.” Elohim – אֱלֹהִים [ʾelohiym /el·o·heem/] Elohim...

Flesh vs. Spirit

Flesh vs. Spirit

The flesh and spirit of man are at war with each other. “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” (Galatians 6:7–8, NASB95) A Godly...

Prosperity – the truth

God’s prosperity is not a lust of “things.” We saw a lot of misuse of God’s principles in the “name it and claim it” (blab it and grab it) movement. But, what does the Bible have to say? What is God’s will for prosperity in your life? Knowing God and having God with us. ““You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with...

Healing is God’s will

Healing is God’s will for every believer. “Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.” (3 John 2, NASB95) Jesus’ answer to the leaper forever settles the fact that He desires everyone to be healed. “And a leper came to Him and bowed down before Him, and said, “Lord, if You are willing,...
