HE MUST INCREASE

HE MUST INCREASE

John the Baptist was undoubtedly a great man of God. The Lord Jesus testified to his greatness, saying, “Assuredly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist…” (Matt. 11:11 NKJV).

John was indeed a man of great influence, authority, popularity and honour. When he began his ministry, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, great multitudes of people responded positively to him and began to follow him. However, John the Baptist knew that he was not in the ministry or in the world to simply draw people’s attention and affection to himself, but to Christ…

OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD (Part 2)

OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD (Part 2)

When the King of Syria was waging war against Israel, he became greatly dismayed and confounded when all his secret plots and strategies to waylay the King of Israel were thwarted, having been disclosed to the King of Israel.

After a careful enquiry, the King of Syria discovered that it was Elisha the prophet of God in Israel that was exposing and disclosing to the King of Israel all his secret words, plans and plots. Therefore, the King of Syria became very angry and sent a great army with horses and chariots to arrest or kill Elisha…

OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD (Part 1)

The believers don’t contend in spiritual warfare for victory over evil, but to appropriate, enforce, proclaim and demonstrate Christ’s victory over evil. By your faith in Christ, you have already overcome the evil one in this world (1 John 4:4). Therefore, you are not expected to fear any evil while you live in this present evil world.

Like David, your confession should be: “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” (Psa. 23:4 NKJV)…

THRUST YOUR SPEAR AT EVIL

THRUST YOUR SPEAR AT EVIL

While all the congregation of Israel was still weeping at the door of the tabernacle of meeting before God, Zimri the son of Salu, a leader of a father’s house among the Simeonites brought in Cozbi, the daughter of one of the princes of Midiam and presented her to his brethren in the sight of Moses and all the congregation of children of Israel. What an affront and effrontery!

Seeing this deliberate affront or despicable behaviour of Zimri and Cozbi, Phinehas the grandson of Aaron the high priest rose up in anger to confront and deal decisively with this evil…

DON’T BE A CAKE NOT TURNED

DON’T BE A CAKE NOT TURNED

The image of a cake not turned depicts Ephraim as hypocrites – neither thoroughly bad nor thoroughly good; neither thoroughly hot nor thoroughly cold. Today, Ephraim would be zealous for God, but the next day, he would be zealous for Baal or other foreign gods. Ephraim was neither fully for God nor fully for Baal.

It is sad but true that many servants of God today are like Ephraim – a cake not turned. They are seeking to please God and also seeking to please the world. They are seeking to serve both God and Mammon (the god of untrue riches)…
