The Path of Life

  1. Take unto you the whole armour of God:

    Psalm 18:25-47 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright; [26] With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward. [27] For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks. [28] For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. Luke 1:79.. To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into THE WAY OF...
  2. SEPARATING OURSELVES APART

    In Joshua's day, before crossing the Jordan River and moving into their inheritance, God said to the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you" (Joshua 3:5). This is an exhortation for us today! DRAW NEAR TO GOD The word consecrate, in Hebrew, is actually a relational term. "Qadash" means to separate or set yourself apart unto God. God's heart isn't, "Clean up your act so I can restore and bless you." He says instead, "Come to Me so I can bless you."...
  3. Daily Devotional - July 28, 2020

    Proverbs 24:16 - "For a righteous man falls seven times and rises again, But the wicked stumble in time of calamity." Some people keep going when life is difficult, but others park at the point of their pain. They decide to stay where they are instead of pressing through the difficulties. Those who are hungry and thirsty will be satisfied. It's time to drink the living water of life and begin to release healing on the earth. Creation is groaning (Romans 8:19, 22) and waiting for you to...
  4. The Plague of the Elder Brothers -- A Book Review of "The Prodigal God" (Part 2)

    (Click here to read Part 1) Overreach? Keller says the Elder Brother was trying to use his obedience to the father to control him. He says: If we think about it, we realize that [the older brother] wanted the same thing as his brother…. He, too, wanted the father’s goods rather than the father himself. However, while the younger brother went far away, the Elder Brother stayed close and “never disobeyed”. That was his way to get control. His unspoken demand is, “I have never disobeyed...
  5. Let us note first

    Let us note first of all that the disagreements of historians on this point are to be explained frequently by an inadequate grasp of the question itself. Until quite recently the attention of liturgiologists has been concentrated almost exclusively on questions connected with the history of the sacramental Christian cult— the Eucharist and Baptism. The other aspects of the liturgical life of the early Church have been left in shadow. Their study is only just beginning: ‘too many problems...
  6. In this connection of the Eucharist

    In this connection of the Eucharist with the Lord’s Day, so well supported by evidence from the liturgical tradition of the early Church, we have therefore a confirmation of that eschatological theology of time of which we have been speaking. The eschatology of the new Christian cult does not mean the renunciation of time. There would have been no need for a fixed day (statu die) in a ‘wholly world-renouncing’ cult, it could be celebrated on any day and at any hour. Nor does this eschatology...
  7. Just Finished the "Book of Matthew" -- A New Believer's first step to Understanding God's Word

    Phew! I feel like I climbed Mount Ranier in reading the first book I've completed in the Bible: The Book of Matthew. Or rather this was the first time I read a book in the Bible that I actually understood. My first encounter with the Bible was marked by pure incomprehension. The year was 1992, the location: Saint Francis High School in Mountain View- a Catholic school run by the Brothers of St. Francis of Assisi. Freshman year we read the Bible. Most of my classmates had some...
  8. The Promises and The Gentiles 1.

    Sounds a little dubious but in hindsight, you will be able to piece the picture together and see Gods mighty plan for Israel and also for all the nations of the earth who believe in Jesus Christ, by faith. God made at least five promises to Abram [Abraham] from the time God called him out of the land of Ur [Gen 12:1-3] in Shechem [Gen 12:7] Bethel [Gen 13:14-17] Hebron [Gen 15:1-12] [Gen 15:17-20] where God made a covenant with him. Also the promise God made to Abraham on mount Moriah....
  9. The Message Of Salvation

    What is the message of Salvation? To make it as simple as possible. The story begins when God had created Adam and placed him in the garden. He also created Eve. Sometime during their time walking in the cool of the garden, the Serpent, a deceptive and crafty creature, manipulated Eve into disobeying God's command, which was not to eat of the tree of knowledge, of good and evil. Genesis 2:17 Disobedience towards God's command is called sin. Romans 5:12. and sin leads to death. This plunged...
  10. Walking With God: A Process of Sanctification

    I am thankful that God in all his mercies, has led me on a path of learning, understanding and growth through circumstances, divine appointments, and encounters with mighty men and women of God throughout my walk with Christ. Growth can be an exciting adventure as a new believer and coming from the worldly perspective, a real culture shock. I recall meeting a lovely lady in church who told me that although it may seem exciting as a new believer, the novelty will soon wear off over time....
  11. The Secret Place Of the Most High!

    I had a dream a few years back around 2018. In this dream I was in what appeared to be a house. It was unusual as it had no windows and seemed to be a collection of many rooms at least 3 stories in height with a mezzanine floor between them The rooms also had no ordinary doors but rather small hatches that took you from one room to another or stairs that took you to another floor. You could see what was happening in each part of the house because of the mezzanine floor. I was with a lot of...
  12. The Forbidden

    The idea of "forbidden" may conjure up all sorts of thoughts in your head. Our parents would have told us things like "don't play near the water on your own, don't cross the road without someone holding your hand, don't talk to strangers etc. This in my view, gives us a glimpse, an idea of what "forbidden" may mean. The dictionary tells us that it basically means, it is not allowed. It is banned and there is always consequences for those who do not heed such warnings. It can cause harm or...
  13. Teach Me Thy Way Oh God; Guide Me On Your Path

    One of the pearls I have learnt about being at home during this pandemic is how loud my thoughts have become. I don't think that they were as clear as when I was busy focussed on work but it has been a good thing. Training is always a good thing when God uses opportunities like this to talk to his children. Hebrews 12:11 says "For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it."...
  14. Obedience and Blessings

    Back in the old testament, God the father spoke to Israel through his prophets. He is a Holy and Righteous God who does not tolerate sin. You can see that when he deals with Israel in the wilderness and also reflected in the law which came through Moses. He promised Abraham blessings, not only for Israel and his descendants but also for the world [gentiles]. These promises were given because of his obedience. After his faith had been tested. Genesis 22. God said: By myself have I sworn,...
  15. God Moments: My Testimony

    My First Personal Encounter With God When I was 8 years old, we lived in the woods [forest town] along with other families because my father worked in that industry at the time [forestry]. One day I was coming home from my friends house and I had to pass a creek. On this particular day, I happened to notice two girls around my age just standing there looking at something in the creek, so I went over to find out what they were doing. I saw another girl in the creek, thrashing around,...
