Fake kings and the King of kings

The bible presents a binary perspective on kings and kingdoms. On the one side is the true king of the kingdom of God. On the other side are the fake kings of the kingdoms of men. The true king not only rules over kings, he also rules over sin. However, fake kings have no rule over their own spirits. They are not only ruled by sin, they are even often ruled by their own subjects.

Confronting the truth of Jesus

Truth in the bible is not abstract. It is real and tangible. Truth in the scriptures is a person. Jesus says: “I am the truth.” (John 14:6).

Jesus is truth personified. Only Jesus, who came down from heaven, truly represents God. He is also God’s ideal man. He is the word; the very expression of God. His Spirit is the Spirit of truth. Indeed, the primary function of the Holy Spirit is to guide us into all truth. (John 16:13).

The mischief of pastors

Sacrifice is an ancient human expression of worshiping deities. It existed among Jews long before the giving of the Law. It was not instituted by God but by pagan man. However, according to Jesus, what is of man cannot be of God. (Matthew 21:25). Sacrifice has passed away. But what God prescribes does not pass away. (Matthew 24; 35)

The strange love of God

What kind of father tells his son to marry a prostitute?

Have you not noticed that many people in the bible sought to escape from God? When Peter recognised that Jesus is the Lord, he pleaded that he should depart from him. (Luke 5:8). David too wanted to run away from God but did not know exactly how. Since he could not get directions from any man, he sought one from God himself. He asked God how he could escape from God. (Psalm 139:7-12). In his case, Jonah ran away to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. (Jonah 1:3).

You must be born again

My wife and son were trying to open a drawer at home, but it was stuck. They tried and tried, but to no avail. So they came to ask me to help. I said to them: “I’ll be with you in a minute.” When they left, I quickly turned to the Lord. I said to him: “If they cannot open the drawer, neither can I. But I know I can open it if you help me. Therefore, I am asking for your help.” Then I got up and went to the room where the problem was.

RELIGION OF THE HEART

Imagine a scenario where God appears to you and declares that your thoughts would be broadcast on Radio Nigeria for everyone to listen to for just two days. How would you react? Would you accept the challenge or would you beg for mercy? What if he were to tell you the two days would be randomly selected over the next two months, without prior notice of exactly when. Would you still be considered a Christian by any after the exercise?

Married to Righteousness

Marriages are not man-made: marriages are made in heaven. The marriage institution is God’s idea and design. Instead of the conventional misnomer whereby marriage is a covenant between two people, the husband and the wife; the true marriage is a covenant between three people; God, the husband and the wife. According to scripture, it is a three-fold cord that is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12).

It is not good for man to be alone 3

Early on at the dawn of creation, God proclaimed a widely misunderstood truth: “It is not good that man should be alone.” (Genesis 2:18). Because the upshot of this observation was the separation of woman from man by the creation of Eve and the institution of marriage, many jump to the conclusion that marriage is the answer to man’s aloneness. However, even in marriage, man remains alone.
