YOU ARE GOD’S TABERNACLE OF MEETING

YOU ARE GOD’S TABERNACLE OF MEETING

The Old Testament saints did not have the privilege of being God’s spiritual temple where God could abide and dwell continuously. This awesome privilege is one of the beauties and blessings of the New Covenant. It is exclusively reserved for the New Testament believers.

The Spirit of God no longer seeks to visit us or rest upon us now and then to accomplish some tasks and then leave afterwards. Rather, the Spirit of God now dwells in the born-again believers and abides with them forever. This is according to the promise of our Lord Jesus Christ before He left this world…

THE NEW CREATION REALITIES (Part 2)

THE NEW CREATION REALITIES (Part 2)

From the point you became born again through faith alone in the person and finished work of Jesus Christ, you have become an entirely new creation. From God’s perspective, you are now a new self, a new being, and a new person in Christ.

While many people around you may still be seeing you or dealing with you as the same old person, God will never again deal with you or relate with you according to your former sinful, selfish, corrupt and rebellious self. In the first part of this piece we began to examine who the new creation is and what He has in Christ…

THE NEW CREATION REALITIES (Part 1)

THE NEW CREATION REALITIES (Part 1)

The product of the new or spiritual birth is not a better, improved, reformed, or refined old self, but an entirely new creation, a new self, a new being, in Christ.

The Greek word translated “new” in this scripture is “kainos” and it simply means “new in every respect.” As respects form, it implies “recently made, fresh, recent, unused, and unworn.” As respects substance, it implies “new kind, unprecedented, novel, uncommon, unheard of” (Thayer’s Greek Lexicon). In other words, the day you were born again, a brand new, fresh and unprecedented being came into existence…

THE NEW BIRTH EXPERIENCE

THE NEW BIRTH EXPERIENCE

The new birth is not a physical or religious experience. It is not the same thing as church confirmation or ordination. Neither is it tantamount to joining a religious group, organization or denomination.

Spiritual birth is not a spiritual heritage or legacy to be bequeathed to your children. It is not hereditary or transferrable. You cannot experience the new birth for someone else; neither can someone else experience it for you. Spiritual birth is God changing your spiritual state, status, condition and position. It is God transforming you from a sinner to a saint, from a slave to a son…

DIVINE GUIDELINES FOR RESOLVING CONFLICTS

DIVINE GUIDELINES FOR RESOLVING CONFLICTS

When a believer has a conflict, dispute or disagreement with another believer, the Scripture offers some guidelines on how to resolve the conflict quickly and amicably. Regrettably, many believers today pay no attention to these divine guidelines for resolving conflicts, thereby allowing the devil to exploit small conflicts to wreck great havocs in their lives, relationships, marriages, or homes.

It is indeed wisdom to pursue peace when there is a conflict or disagreement between you and your brother or sister in Christ following the guidelines and instructions taught by the Lord Jesus. These guidelines are clearly spelt out in Matthew 18:15-17…

THE PARABLE OF THE UNFORGIVING SERVANT

THE PARABLE OF THE UNFORGIVING SERVANT

According to Jesus’ parable of the unforgiving servant, after his master has dealt mercifully with him, forgiving him and writing off his debt, the servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii (about fifty dollars).

Although his fellow servant fell down at his feet and begged him for mercy and patience, he would neither listen nor pardon him. But, he took him by the throat and threw him into the prison till he would pay the debt. When the news got to his master, he was very angry and said to him, “You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you begged me…
