THE ANTECEDENTS OF TRUE REVIVAL (Part 1)

THE ANTECEDENTS OF TRUE REVIVAL (Part 1)

It is only carnal, immature, or undiscerning believers that will not admit that today’s Church is in dire need of true revival. It is disheartening that the Church which is supposed to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth is now stumbling in darkness and riddled with corruption.

Rather than invading, permeating and influencing the world with Christ’s values and virtues, sadly, it is the world that is now invading, permeating and influencing the Church with its values, vices and lies. Rather than making disciples of all the nations for Christ, many believers today have become followers of unregenerate and ungodly celebrities…

BEWARE OF SPIRITUAL UNDERTAKERS (Part 2)

BEWARE OF SPIRITUAL UNDERTAKERS (Part 2)

The undertakers are people whose profession is the preparation of the dead for burial or cremation and the management of funerals; funeral directors (Collins Eng. Dict.). Unfortunately, many so-called ministers of God today are nothing but spiritual undertakers who make much material or financial gains from pampering, entertaining, and preparing spiritually dead souls for eternity of sorrows, pains and torments in hell fire.

The Church today no longer need the service or ministry of spiritual undertakers whose only interest is to manipulate and exploit God’s people, to amass much wealth, and to make sinners feel very comfortable in their present terrible spiritual condition…

BEWARE OF SPIRITUAL UNDERTAKERS (Part 1)

While the Lord Jesus delayed in coming to Bethany to heal the sick Lazarus, his condition grew worse and eventually he died. Lazarus’ sisters, Martha and Mary, who had sent a distress call to Jesus to come and heal their brother, became totally frustrated.

Likewise, all the people who had gathered around them, waiting to see how Jesus would heal Lazarus were highly disappointed. They all gave up in despair, leaving the remains of Lazarus for the undertakers to attend to. The undertakers immediately swung into action, wrapping Lazarus’ face with a cloth and binding his hands and feet with grave clothes. Afterwards, they buried Lazarus in the cave and laid a stone against its mouth….

TRUE CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP (Part 2)

TRUE CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP (Part 2)

Discipleship is travelling daily with the Lord Jesus on the narrow path that leads to life (Matt. 7:13-14). It is a lifelong spiritual journey. It is a daily commitment to deny yourself, to take up your cross and follow the Lord Jesus. It is choosing to learn from the Lord daily and to walk in His footsteps (John 14:1-10, 1 Pet. 2:21-24).

Although discipleship journey with the Lord Jesus starts when you deliberately, consciously and voluntarily accede or submit to the Lordship of Jesus; however, it is a lifelong journey that will culminate in reigning with the Lord Jesus when He comes back to set up His physical kingdom on the earth…

TRUE CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP (Part 1)

TRUE CHRISTIAN DISCIPLESHIP (Part 1)

Discipleship is not a programme but a personal, intimate and loving relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Discipleship is not attending and graduating from a Theological Seminary, Bible College or Leadership Class. Discipleship certainly involves studying or learning from God’s Word, but a mere acquisition of mental or intellectual knowledge about Jesus Christ does not make anyone a disciple of Christ.

Discipleship is not acquiring more biblical knowledge about Christ, but growing in revelation knowledge of Christ and becoming more like Christ. A disciple of Christ never stops learning at the feet of his Master, the Lord Jesus Christ. A disciple never graduates from following Christ daily…

THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE OF PRAYER

THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE OF PRAYER

Prayer is intended to ultimately change the believers into Christlikeness in every aspect. God’s ultimate goal, desire, or expectation for all His children is “to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” (Rom. 8:29 NKJV).

The believers are already conformed to Christ in their born-again spirits, but not yet in their souls (mind, will and emotions) and their bodies. Prayer is one of God’s vital means of transforming us into Christlikeness in every aspect of our lives (2 Cor. 3:18). Beloved, the ultimate purpose of prayer is not to simply change your situations, but primarily to increasingly change you into who God intended you to be (Christlikeness). Why?
