THE RADIANCE OF GOD’S GLORY

THE RADIANCE OF GOD’S GLORY

All the supernatural manifestations of God seen in the lives of the saints of old or in the ministries of the prophets of old are infinitely or immeasurably small in comparison with Jesus Christ who was the very image of God’s substance, person or essence.

Jesus Christ is the ultimate or supreme revelation of God’s love, glory, wisdom, truth, power, nature or character to mankind. His lifestyle, mindsets, values, attitudes, words or teachings are God’s perfect standards for us. No one else, living or dead, is God’s perfect standard or example for us to measure up to or follow in everything!

STOP PATCHING UP YOUR OLD GARMENT

STOP PATCHING UP YOUR OLD GARMENT

No religion, institution, organization, rehabilitation, or civilization can patch up, improve upon, repair or fix the sinful and selfish nature of man. It is completely corrupt and evil. It can never be improved upon, modified, or made better. Therefore, it has to be put off or changed through the new birth experience.

God’s plan of salvation does not entail patching up, improving upon, mending, or repairing our sin-ridden nature; rather, it entails replacing our sinful nature with His holy nature. Therefore, born-again believers don’t retain their old sinful, corrupt or depraved nature after the new birth experience…

BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED

BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED

Being born again does not automatically result in experiencing supernatural peace in the midst of storm; it is being spiritually minded or setting your mind on the Spirit (God’s Word) that guarantees a life of peace in spite of the storm. Sadly, many believers today are not spiritually minded but carnally minded, thereby not experiencing or manifesting the peace of God in their born-again spirits.

What does it mean to be spiritually minded? First, it implies being God-conscious. You are spiritually minded when you focus or fix your mind on God and not on yourself or your situation. Being spiritually minded is letting God’s thoughts preoccupy your mind. It is setting your thoughts and affections on God…

BE A DOER OF THE WORD

BE A DOER OF THE WORD

It is a contradiction in terms to call Jesus “Lord” and yet not obey His commands. It is simply a self-delusion or self-deception to claim to be a follower of Christ and yet not a doer of the teaching of Christ. Anyone who is only a hearer, reader, preacher or teacher of God’s Word, but not a doer of God’s Word is only deceiving himself.

Sadly, many believers today who are eager and diligent hearers, readers, preachers and teachers of God’s Word are reluctant and lazy doers of God’s Word. The primary evidence of submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ is the willingness and eagerness to obey His commands and teachings…

LOOKING UNTO JESUS

LOOKING UNTO JESUS

No one can finish the Christian race successfully or victoriously without fixing his eyes on the Lord Jesus Christ. What does it really mean to be looking unto Jesus while running the Christian race? The word translated “looking” in Heb. 12:2 is a Greek word “aphorao” and it is from two words, “apo” and “horao.”

The word “apo” implies “separation” while the word “horao” implies “to see with the eyes; to see with the mind, to perceive, know; to see, i.e. become acquainted with by experience, to experience; to see, to look to, to stare at; to take heed, beware, to care for, pay heed to” (BLB Lexicon)…
