WHO IS MY NEIGHBOUR?

WHO IS MY NEIGHBOUR?

There are many Greek words that were translated “neighbour” in the New Testament: “geiton” meaning “one living in the same land”; “perioikos” meaning “dwelling around”; “plesion” from “pelas”, meaning “near” (Vine’s Expository Dictionary).

The Greek word translated “neighbour” in Luke 10:27, 29, 36 is “plesion” meaning “one who is near.” The American Heritage Dictionary defines “neighbour”, among several definitions, as “a fellow human.” When simply put, your neighbour is your fellow human who is near you…

STOP MEDDLING WITH GOD

STOP MEDDLING WITH GOD

Many people today, like Josiah, are meddling with God by resisting or standing in the way of someone God has sent on a specific mission. This is a dangerous thing to do!

When you seek to discourage, resist, oppose, or stand in the way of anyone God has sent on a mission, like Josiah, you are simply fighting against God, thereby setting up yourself for a sudden destruction. No one ever hardened himself against God and prospered!

WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO?

WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO?

While Joash was listening to Jehoiada the priest, he was walking in the ways of the LORD. On the contrary, when Joash began to listen to the evil and idolatrous princes of Judah, he became evil and idolatrous like them.

The truth is this; who you constantly, continuously, or consistently listen to will eventually mould, determine, control, influence and shape your motives, thoughts, actions, values, perceptions, passions, and pursuits in life. Whoever you give your attention to in life will ultimately give direction to your life…

GOD IN THE BURNING BUSH

GOD IN THE BURNING BUSH

Does God still speak to us from the midst of “the burning bush?” Yes, God still does! God still uses “the burning bush” today to draw our attention to His unique plans and purposes for our lives, to open our eyes of understanding, and to rekindle our dwindling passion for His plans and purposes for our lives.

Many believers today, like Moses, have given up in despair after one or two futile attempts or efforts to step out and fulfil their God-given vision, mission or calling, which may be as a result of setting out at a wrong time…

YOU HAVE THE FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD

YOU HAVE THE FAITH OF THE SON OF GOD

God gives the same measure or equal amount of faith to every believer at the New Birth. The differences in the level of faith we may observe among the believers are simply based on usage or exercise of the measure of faith that God has given. This is a pivotal truth!

The early apostles of Christ who walked steadily in the supernatural power of God and did great exploits for Christ did not receive from God a greater measure of faith than any believer today. Apostle Peter testified to this great truth in His epistle…

APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING UNDER JESUS CHRIST

APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING UNDER JESUS CHRIST

The Greek word “mathetes” for “disciple” in the New Testament means “a learner or a pupil.” But in Aramaic, the word “disciple” does not mean a student, but “an apprentice.”

An apprentice is a learner under a skilled or qualified person who is learning a trade or profession. Every believer is supposed to be Jesus’ apprentice! Disciples of Jesus are not just His students; they are His apprentices. The idea of a student is only theoretical. But, the idea of an apprentice is something quite practical…
