God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will (Hebrews 2:4). The word translated "gifts" here, doesn't mean gifts like we have it in 1 Corinthians 12:4,where the word "gifts" is translated from "charisma."Here, "gifts' is translated from the...
The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts (Haggai 2:9). Notice the expression "The glory of this latter house" in our opening text. The emphasis here is on the word "this", a demonstrative adjective that specifies what is being...
…for he hath said…So that we may boldly say…(Hebrews 13:5-6). Speaking God's Word and responding to God's Word are two different things. Many think they're the same, but they're not. Most have never been taught how to respond to God's Word and many don't know what it is to actually speak God's Word. A good example of speaking the Word...
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Faith is a very simple Kingdom principle to understand and apply. The reason some Christians struggle with their faith is that they try to reason out the Word of God with their minds. Faith is the response of the human spirit, not the mind,...
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path (Psalm 119:105). What many require the most in life are guidance and direction. Often, many find themselves in a quagmire, unsure of what steps to take; they pray for guidance, but even when they pray,they're not sure when God is talking to them. If you want to know and hear the...
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said,out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water (John 7:38). As God's children, we're all called into the ministry, and the Lord Jesus gives us a good definition of what Christian ministry is in our opening verse. Ministry is the outflow of the rivers of living water in you. The...
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof (Proverbs 18:21). Proverbs 15:4 says, "A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit." The things you say are so important; you can make or mar your life with the words you speak. The current...
I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain(Galatians 2:21). Some Christians frustrate the grace of God in their lives. You shouldn't do that. Don't frustrate the grace of God in your life. Rather, let it work to its fullness, to its maximum capacity and final fruition. Let it...
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you(Romans 8:11). Isaiah 53:5 says, "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon...
Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21). 2 Peter 1:3 says, "According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue." This is extraordinary! Could this really be true? It sure...
