THE NEW WORLD ORDER

john3_18Believe in the SON

The New World Order (NWO) teaches that all roads lead to Heaven. It teaches that any faith or religion can give you direct access to the FATHER. The Bible clearly teaches us that no one can approach Almighty God directly because of sin. The human race is in a sinful condition and there is no form of self-effort, adherence to a set of rules, good works or religion that can make a person righteous before God. God is Holy. The human race needed a mediator to bring reconciliation, to stand in the gap between God and man. Being good, self-efforts, self – works or any form of self-righteousness cannot and can never please God.

Almighty God took pity on mankind in its sinful condition. He loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son as a living sacrifice for sin. That whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life (John 3:16). The Spirit of God came to earth to save mankind through our Lord Jesus Christ. He is One with God, He is the eternal Son of God. Without Him we can not see God. He is the righteousness of God, it is only through Him that a person can be right with God.

There is something innate within the human heart that knows in needs to get right with God. This manifests itself in all forms of self-works, self-efforts and the keeping to sets or forms of rules. None of these things can please God, no matter how hard we humanly try. This is why we need a Saviour, one who has already paid the price for our sin with His own life.

Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life and it is only through Him that we have salvation. There is no other way.

THE WITNESS

romans8_16The SPIRIT bears witness with the believers spirit.
The Spirit Himself bears witness with the believers Spirit the he or she is a member of God’s family. Through God’s Word the Spirit confirms the TRUTH.

“Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” Rom.8:17
Heirs in God’s Kingdom have mind boggling privileges. They are no longer slaves, but heirs.

The sons and daughters of the Living God have a unique and special relationship with the FATHER. All that belongs to Almighty God belongs to His sons and daughters. They are heirs of all that belongs the Father, joint -heirs with Christ.

The children of God are glorified with Christ. While the believer enjoys freedom on earth, they will also go though many afflictions while the soul remains in the human body, it is flesh. However, there is a great expectation of the glory which is to come.

CHILD OF A KING

THE CHILD OF A KING
As a child of a King, there are certain things you can not do and places you cannot go. Idol worship, superstitious beliefs, evil customs and manners, from a lost and dead heathen generation,
should not be part of you. You are a new creation with a new name and a new family.

Those called are set apart and belong to a new generation. They are redeemed and called to a life of righteousness. By grace and adoption, the child of a King is set apart. This Kingship has not come through natural descent or association. It has come through the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ.

Almighty God is a Father who takes good care of those in His Kingdom. He desires, above everything else, that you “seek first His kingdom and His righteousness.” (Matt 6:31-33). He supplies all of their needs.

“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matt. 6:31-33).

TRUST in the Lord!!!

WeekThe blessedness of TRUST in the Lord
You are absolutely blessed if your trust and confidence is in the Lord. Trust in man, is the complete opposite of trust in the Lord (Jer.17:5-6). The good things God has promised to give you can easily be missed if your trust is in man. Prov.3:5 says, “trust in the Lord with all your heart” and not just part of it.
 
Trusting in God means walking very closely with Him. He is a lamp to the feet and a light to the path (Psalm 105:109). He is a true friend. He is so close, that He will show you where there is misplaced trust and hope. Psalm 121 talks about looking up to the hills for divine help. The hills here represent a higher place where God can be found.
 
True prosperity and success can be compared to a tree planted beside a river. It is not affected by drought. Dry seasons make the leaves of a tree lose its colour and fall off. A tree planted by water will send its roots deep into the stream to keep its leaves evergreen. It will still produce fruit in a parched and barren land. The person who trusts God, drinks from Living Water, it is in constant supply.
 
The righteousness of God gives you right standing before Him. It is by His grace you have been saved, and not by any self-effort. In mercy, He draws you near, even when you have lost your way. He will direct you down the right path.
 
In humility, repent when you have placed your trust in anything else but the Living God. You can turn around and trust Him completely.
 
Have a fruitful week!

POWER, LOVE, SOUND MIND

2Timothy1_7POWER LOVE AND A SOUND MIND

Distress, anxiety, faint-heartedness and cowardice are not what God desires for His children.

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and a sound mind.” (2Tim.1:7).

During these end times, Believers every where will need to keep their eyes firmly fixed on Jesus. In the face of a world that opposes the gospel, the children of God will need fortitude and courage. It is the power of God that enables the Believer to stay in the faith, even when there is every reason to give up the faith. He gives courage during distressing times.

The love of God has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:5). This love gives us the ability to serve God wholeheartedly. It enables us love our brothers and sisters in Christ. This love reaches out to a hostile world, in desperate need of Christ. It does not fear man (Psalm 118:6, Rom.8:31). The love of God compels us to share the Good News, with courage, to a lost generation.

Peace is a gift from God. Jesus Christ paid such a heavy penalty for our freedom. Because of Him we have a sound mind. The peace God reigns, regardless of the environment, situation or circumstance .

May the peace of God, which surpasses all human understanding, guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus (Phil.4:7).

Faithfulness and Perseverance

Revelation2_3Commendation for the Ephesian Church.
 
The Ephesian Church is a Church so well taught in the gospel that false teachers are not able penetrate it. It is characterised by its zeal, the desire for true teaching, patience and long suffering. It takes time and energy to run an efficient church.
 
To be encouraged by God in any respect is a thing of joy. Appreciation and praise is what the Ephesian Church received. Faithfulness is to be commended. A church is run on the efficiency of its untiring faithful members. The Church should run like a well oiled machine, were every part contributes to the smooth running of the Church. Where one part is not functioning properly, it effects the general output of the machine. This was not the case with the Ephesian Church as it was praised for its competence.
 
Many Churches are facing persecution today and it is evident that their leaders are being held up by the right hand of the Lord. Christ is protecting His Church. Despite the opposition, its leaders and members remain steadfast and loyal to their call. He holds the Seven Stars in His right hand and He walks in the midst of the the Seven Golden Lampstands (Rev.1:12, 20).

Commendation

Revelation2_2The letter to Ephesus
The Revelation of Jesus Christ revealed to His Church.
While John was in Prison in Patmos, he received a glorious and spectacular vision of Christ. Through a series of detailed visions, John is given special messages to the Seven Churches of Asia, relevant for that period and still applicable and important for the Church today.
Christ speaks as the head of His Church. The Church belongs to Him. The ministers are His servants, He has control over them. All authority and power belongs to Him.
Commendation
“I know thy works…”
The Ephesian Church is commended for their labour in propagating the gospel. It’s important to note the Lord keeps an account of every service done in His name. All their hard work in keeping the Church running was not a waste a time, it was certainly noticed by God. They were patient and long- suffering. It was a Church which endured so much for Christ sake. It laboured and persevered, against the odds, for Christ.
With a spirit of discernment, the Church in Ephesus fought against false teachers. They were possibly called Ebion and Cerinthus. These were men who went about preaching a false doctrine in Asia at that time. The Church did not entertain them because they “found them Liars” (Rev.2:2).
There are many preaching sales men and women today, just like Ebion and Cerinthus, selling their wares and preaching a divisive and contrary gospel. Just like the Ephesian Church, there are Churches were preachers like this will not be entertained or tolerated. They will not be given a platform to preach lies and sow discord among the Saints. There are Churches who contend for the Truth, they uphold God’s Word and hate evil.
While there are words of commendation and encouragement to a diligent and persevering Church, which places high value upon God’s Word, there are also words of reproof. Do follow the series for more…

A PURPOSE PREVAILED

John1_12In all things: the purpose of God stands.
The earth is the Lord’s and everything, and all who live in it (Psalm 24:1). Jesus Christ came to His own people, but they did not receive Him. His ministry among the Jews was not received or accepted. They rejected Him and this made their sin even more sinful. Israel was His inheritance:
“From the care of the ewes with suckling lambs He brought him To shepherd Jacob His people, And Israel His inheritance.”
Yet there were those who received Him!
Though Christ was rejected by His own people, it did not stop God’s plan and purpose from going ahead. God’s plan still stands.
As many as believe on Christ and acknowledge Him as the Messiah, have the right to become the children of God. Those who believed in His name, whosoever and whatsoever receive Him (whether Pharisee, Sadducee, learned or unlearned, male or female, Jew or Gentile) are privileged to be the sons of God.
By faith in Christ many are adopted into God’s family (Gal.3:26). Those who believe in the Son of God are the children of God. With out faith in His Son, you cannot be His child. The children of God have been given the right to become the children of God. They have sonship, they are God’s children.
God’s plans and purposes for this earth can never be defeated (Prov. 19:21; Isa. 46:9-11, John 6:37-39). Through faith in Jesus Christ we have a wonderful inheritance. It is God’s gift of free love and free grace. There are a chosen generation of people, foreknown, predestined, called, justified and glorified (Rom. 8:29).

THE EPHESUS CHURCH

chapter2

THE EPHESUS CHURCH

Ephesus was a city positioned near the western coast of Asia Minor. It was very significant in its day. Its harbor by the Aegean Sea received ships from afar, making Ephesus prosperous. It was the commercial centre of Asia. Ephesus was also popular because of the temple of Diana. It concealed criminals and silversmiths who carved small shrines of Diana. Paul had this to contend with, nevertheless, he planted a Church in Ephesus AD 52 (read Acts 18:19 – 21). Priscilla and Aquila served in this Church (read Acts 18:19). Apollos, a learned man, well trained and

thorough in the knowledge the scriptures, also spoke boldly in Ephesus. (Acts 18:24-25). Timothy was also involved with this Church. He was left in charge (1Tim.1:3).

At some point, John also served as Bishop to the Church of Ephesus. It had been in existence for over 40 years when John received the letter to the Church, through a vision. The directive John received was plain and simple. It wasn’t revealed with complicated or mysterious words which needed unraveling. The message to the Church of Ephesus brought commendation and encouragement, but it also included rebuke and chastisement.

The Seven Epistles to the Churches are made up of similar patterns: they instruct, reprimand, commend and comfort. It is Christ writing to His Church (His Bride). Though He warns His Bride in these letters, they can be considered as letters of love. Hebrews 12:6 tells us, “The Lord disciplines the one He loves.” Each letter starts with a picture of Christ and He has a special message for everyone. These letters are directed to the angel of the Churches. These angels are the ministers who deliver God’s message to the Church… stay tuned as we go through these seven letters.
