WHO IS A MAN OF GOD?

WHO IS A MAN OF GOD?

It is impersonation to pretend to be another person, to imitate the appearance, voice, character or style of another person, or to assume the title or name of another person. Frankly speaking, many of those who go about parading themselves as “men or women of God” in our generation are mere impersonators.

In the Bible days, the name or title, “Man of God” was sacred, held in high esteem and greatly revered by the people. Sadly, the reverse is the case today. The name or the title, “Man of God” today has been stripped of its honour and reduced to a mere title, slogan or cliché (MOG)…

GOOD NEWS TO ALL SPIRITUAL DEBTORS (Part 2)

GOOD NEWS TO ALL SPIRITUAL DEBTORS (Part 2)

While the poor and desperate widow in the book of 2 Kings 4 verses 1-7 was running helter-skelter, desperately seeking for deliverance from the creditor who was coming to take her two sons as slaves, unknown to her, God’s provision for her deliverance was in her house (symbolized by a jar of oil).

In sheer ignorance, the poor woman despised and abandoned God’s provision in her house. But, when her eyes of understanding were opened, she appropriated this God’s provision and thus settled her debt in full and became free from the fear and harassment of the creditor…

GOOD NEWS TO ALL SPIRITUAL DEBTORS (Part 1)

In response to the desperate cries of this poor widow, who was at the mercy of a cruel creditor, Elisha the prophet of God helped her to discover and appropriate the provision which God had already made available and placed at her disposal (in her house) to settle her debt and be free from the harassment of the creditor.

Like Elisha, the primary responsibility of God’s servants today is to help the people who run to them seeking for divine intervention to discover, understand and appropriate the provision (grace) that God has made available for the salvation of all mankind through Jesus Christ (John 1:17, Tit. 2:11)…

THE PARABLE OF THE TARES OF THE FIELD (Part 2)

THE PARABLE OF THE TARES OF THE FIELD (Part 2)

Vine’s Expository Dictionary defines “tares” (“zizanion” in Greek) as a kind of darnel, the commonest of the four species, being the bearded, growing in the grain fields, as tall as wheat and barley, and resembling wheat in appearance. It was credited among the Jews with being degenerate wheat. The rabbis called it “bastard.”

Although tares closely resemble wheat in appearance; however, it is not safe for consumption because it is poisonous to man and herbivorous animals, producing sleepiness, nausea, convulsions and even death. In a spiritual sense, “tares” implies false teachings or heretic doctrines that may superficially appear to be truths, attractive, sweet, or harmless, but are harmful to your spiritual well being…

THE PARABLE OF THE TARES OF THE FIELD (Part 1)

Understanding the parable of the sower is a prerequisite for understanding other parables of Jesus. That is why Jesus said to His disciples, “Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables?” (Mark 4:13 NKJV).

It is the seed (the Word of the Kingdom) which falls on a good ground (the heart which hears, understands, accepts, believes and obeys God’s Word) in the parable of the sower that produces the good seeds (the sons of the kingdom) sowed in the field in the parable of the tares. Can you see the progression in Jesus’ parables and teachings?

THE ANTECEDENTS OF TRUE REVIVAL (Part 2)

THE ANTECEDENTS OF TRUE REVIVAL (Part 2)

History has clearly taught us that true revivals don’t just happen arbitrarily or randomly. No generation in the past has ever experienced a mighty move of God by chance. If any generation desires to see the manifestation of God’s overwhelming presence, it must prepare the way for God. God is not an intruder or a gatecrasher who will force His way into our affairs when not invited or wanted.

It is our responsibility to prepare the way before the Lord and seek Him with all our hearts and when we do this, the Lord will not fail to reveal His awesome presence and power in His temple, the Church…
