GOD’S ULTIMATE PLAN

GOD’S ULTIMATE PLAN

Although Christ has received all authority over all things, yet not all things are now seen to be under His feet. This is simply because Christ has not exerted His authority to forcefully bring all things in subjection under His feet.

However, God’s ultimate plan and purpose is to sum up all things in Christ, to bring everything together in heaven and on earth under the headship, Lordship, or authority of the Lord Jesus Christ, so “that in all things He may have the preeminence.” (Col. 1:18 NKJV). Paul states, “And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ…

NO, LORD!

NO, LORD!

Peter certainly knew that it was the Lord Jesus who was saying to him in the trance, “Rise, Peter; kill and eat.” Nevertheless, he still bluntly refused to obey the Lord’s clear command and instruction.

Even though Peter was given the opportunity three times to repent and obey the Lord’s voice, yet his constant response to the Lord’s voice was, “No, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common or unclean.” What a shocking surprise! Apparently, Peter’s blunt refusal to obey the Lord’s voice in the trance was as a result of his allegiance or adherence to the Mosaic law…

THE MOMENT OF TRANSFORMATION

THE MOMENT OF TRANSFORMATION

Prayer is not intended to be a means of changing God’s mind or attitude towards you. When you pray with a sole aim of seeking to coax, persuade, impress, or compel God to change His mind or attitude towards you; you are simply praying amiss.

Seeking to impress or compel God to do anything for you by means of prayer is a complete departure or deviation from grace to works; it is simply a shift of faith from the finished work of Jesus to your own imperfect religious works. The Lord Jesus has abolished once and for all the enmity between God and sinful men by His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins…

YOU ARE BLAMELESS IN GOD’S SIGHT

Your perception is your reality in life. How you see yourself will ultimately affect your relationship with others. More importantly, how you perceive God sees you will definitely affect how you relate with God and how you receive from God.

Your perception influences your prayers. How you see yourself, or how you think God sees you go a long way to affect how you approach God and the confidence you have towards God. It is therefore very necessary for you to see yourself as God sees you in Christ Jesus…

THE RACE IS NOT TO THE SWIFT

When Ben-Hadad king of Syria gathered all his army and went up and besieged Samaria, it resulted into a great famine in the city. The famine was so severe that women started to boil and eat their children.

But, when God had mercy upon His people, He caused the Syrian army to hear behind them the noise of chariots and the noise of horses (the noise of a great army), and so fled for their lives. On hearing the noise of a great army coming behind them, the Syrian said to one another, “Look, the King of Israel had hired against us the kings of the Hittites and the kings of the Egyptians to attack us!

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…
