DO BUSINESS TILL I COME

DO BUSINESS TILL I COME

The expectation of the early disciples of Jesus who accepted and regarded Him as their Messiah was that He would immediately exert His supernatural power and authority to deliver the Jewish nation from the dominion of the Romans and overthrow the Romans kingdom.

And then set up His own physical Kingdom in Jerusalem, thereby fulfilling the prophecy about the Messiah establishing His physical Kingdom on earth with His headquarters in Jerusalem. However, on His way to Jerusalem the Lord Jesus corrected this wrong notion…

DO ALL THINGS AS TO THE LORD

DO ALL THINGS AS TO THE LORD

One of the greatest evils that have befallen the Church today is the compartmentalization of Christianity, the dichotomy between spiritual work and secular work.

As a result of this dichotomy, many believers today, who are not ministering, serving or working in the Church or in the Christian ministries or organizations, erroneously regard their jobs, businesses, careers, professions or vocations as a secular work and not as a service or ministry to the Lord Jesus Christ. This is a great spiritual blunder!

TAKE MY YOKE UPON YOU (Part 2)

TAKE MY YOKE UPON YOU (Part 2)

It is absolutely impossible to stay, walk, and work in close fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ without being yoked together with Him. The yoke of Christ is an emblem of Christ’s instructions and afflictions. It is a symbolic expression of an unreserved and absolute submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

It is a mindset to embrace and endure with joy any suffering or persecution that comes your way as you follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. You cannot be a close follower of Christ without submitting willingly, gladly and unreservedly to Christ’s teaching and authority, and without being prepared to embrace and endure suffering, tribulation, or persecution for Christ’s sake…

TAKE MY YOKE UPON YOU (Part 1)

A call to be a follower of Jesus Christ is not a call to a yoke-free life, but a call to exchange a grievous yoke and heavy burden of Sin and Satan for an easy yoke and light burden of Christ.

Through the disobedience of the first man, we all were made sinners, sold as slaves to Sin and Satan, struggling and fainting under the grievous yoke and heavy burden of Sin and Satan (Rom. 5:12, 19). The Lord Jesus Christ came into the world not just to die for our sins, but to also deliver us from the tyranny or dominion of Sin and Satan. The Lord Jesus calls to all, saying, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28 NKJV)…

REKINDLING AND SUSTAINING GOD’S FIRE

REKINDLING AND SUSTAINING GOD’S FIRE

One of the primary responsibilities of the priests under the Old Covenant is to keep the fire burning on God’s altar perpetually. God expressly commanded them, saying, “A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out.” (Lev. 6:13 NKJV).

God sent the fire, but it is the responsibility of the priests to sustain the fire on the altar (Lev. 9:23-24). However, God gave them specific instructions to follow so that they could keep the fire burning on the altar. These divine instructions are still very relevant and useful to us today to sustain God’s fire in our souls. At the New Birth, the Holy Spirit kindles the fire of God’s love in the hearts of the believers…
