Charisma II

Mark 16:17These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages.”

The first grouping of the Sign Gifts is the Revelational Gifts, and these are the Word of Wisdom, the Word of Knowledge, and the Discerning of Spirits. Discernment of Spirits is telling between the Spirit of God and foul spirits. Read the rest of this entry

Q & A III

1 Cor.12:9&11 (NIV) “to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit… All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.”

Question: How does one differentiate between the gift of speaking in other tongues and the gift of diversity of tongues? Read the rest of this entry

Established Systems

Job 38:12 “Have you ever commanded the morning to appear and caused the dawn to rise in the east? 13 Have you made daylight spread to the ends of the earth…”

You cannot build your life assuming every coincidence is God. A lot of coincidences that people believe to be God have nothing to do with God. They are just coincidences. Read the rest of this entry

Faith Key

Heb.11:6 (AMP) But without faith it is impossible to (walk with God and) please Him, for whoever comes (near) to God must (necessarily) believe that God exists and that He rewards those who (earnestly and diligently) seek Him.

Why do people excuse incompetence or lack of power? Why do people in the Church build theories around their lack of power and around their ignorance? What I have noticed in the Church Read the rest of this entry

Manoeuvre

Ps.18:31-32 &34 “For who is God except the Lord? Who but our God is a solid rock? God arms me with strength, and he makes my way perfect. He trains my hands for battle; he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.”

Yesterday, we said the third thing about opportunities is, You Must Stay Flexible To Be Ready. Staying flexible is possible when we keep in step with the Holy Spirit (Gal.5:25). Read the rest of this entry

Be Flexible

John 3:8 “The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit.”

The third thing about opportunities is, You Must Stay Flexible To Be Ready. Gal.5:25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” You and I must stay flexible to be ready. If you are not flexible you cannot keep in step with the Holy Spirit. Read the rest of this entry

The Difference I

Mark 10:47-48When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus of Nazareth was nearby, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” “Be quiet!” many of the people yelled at him. But he only shouted louder, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” (emphasis added).

God’s heart consists of two attributes – His character (who He is) and His covenant (how He deals). Yesterday, we learnt that when Bartimaeus shouted, he struck Jesus’ heart. Read the rest of this entry

Cry Out!

Heb.11:6 “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.”

Mark 10:47-48When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus of Nazareth was nearby, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” “Be quiet!” many of the people yelled at him. But he only shouted louder, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” (emphasis added). Read the rest of this entry

Faith Overrides

Mark 5:22-23 Then a leader of the local synagogue, whose name was Jairus, arrived. When he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet, pleading fervently with him. “My little daughter is dying,” he said. “Please come and lay your hands on her; heal her so she can live.”

Faith Is A Certainty That Leads To Action. The knowing that goes beyond intellect and reasoning. At some point in our lives, Sunday evenings were for evangelism. My wife and I were not pastors then but after church, on Read the rest of this entry

Faith is… Action!

James 2:14 & 18 (GNT) “My friends, what good is it for one of you to say that you have faith if your actions do not prove it? Can that faith save you? …My answer is, “Show me how anyone can have faith without actions. I will show you my faith by my actions.”

The third thing faith teaches us is, Faith, Is About Who And Not About What. Our faith is in a Person (Jesus) and not in a process. 2 Tim.1:12 “…I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until the day of his return.” (emphasis added).
