Love Explained

Love comes from God, who loved us first! He showed how much He loved us by sending His one and only Son Jesus Christ into this world, so that we might have eternal life through Him. All, who confess that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God. That is why anyone who loves is a child of God, and knows God. It is this God-given love that propels us, not only to love Him with all our hearts, soul and mind, but also to love ourselves, our neighbor, our brother and sister, and our enemy. This is the proof that God has given us His Spirit; that we live in Him and He in us. That is why it says that if we love each other, God lives in us, and His love is brought to full expression in us and grows more and more perfect. God’s love has no fear and is not afraid of punishment, because this perfect love expels all fear. It is because we know how [...]

The Blood Of Jesus That Gives New Life

By Sophia Christiaan

No one can undo what they have done; the mistakes, the sexual encounters, and the wasted time they have spent on activities that have been fruitless. But, whenever someone feels dirty and down and depressed, knowing that nothing they have done so far in life has brought the satisfaction they were looking for, they can always turn to God and ask Him to wash them in the blood of Jesus. You see, the blood that Jesus shed on the cross wasn’t just any blood, it was redeeming, cleansing blood that took away all of our sins – all that which drags us down and makes us burdened and heavy. All we have to do is admit that we cannot do it our own way anymore. Now we step aside, and allow Jesus Christ to transform us by giving us a new life! We put our trust in Him for everything – our future, our hopes and dreams, our family situation, our finances, our belongings, yes even our very own lives here on earth. We decide not to [...]

Bless Your Enemy

When King David was forced to leave his palace because of his son Absalom, who conspired to kill him and take over his kingship, a man named Shimei came out of the village cursing them and falsely accusing King David. He threw stones at David and his officers and all the mighty warriors who surrounded him. “Get out of here, you murderer, you scoundrel!” he shouted at David. “The Lord is paying youback for all the bloodshed in Saul’s clan. You stole his throne, and now the Lord has given it to your son Absalom. At last you will taste some of your own medicine, for you are a murderer!” Then David’s commander wanted to go over and cut off the head of Shimei, calling him a dead dog. But David said; “No! If the Lord has told him to curse me, who are you to stop him? My own son is trying to kill me. Leave him alone and let him curse, for the Lord has told him to do it. And perhaps the Lord will see that [...]

They Say They Went To Hell

“Now, son of man, speak out against the women who prophesy from their own imaginations. This is what the Sovereign Lord says: What sorrow awaits you women who are ensnaring the souls of my people, young and old alike.” Ezekiel 13:17-18 NLT  How sick is this – so-called Christian women prophets, who say they went to hell and came back with a serious warning from God that women who wear jewelry and hair pieces will go to hell! These women are nothing but agents of Satan, who masks themselves as Christians to deceive the true followers of Christ. “But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness.” 2. Corinthians 11:14-15 NLT  These women are like the blind religious Pharisees, who are so eager to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside they are filthy—full of greed and self-indulgence! (See Matthew 23:25) Jesus clearly said; “It is what comes from inside that defiles you. For from [...]

Jesus’ Prayer For Me

Before Jesus was crucified and raised from the death, He prayed to the Father among other things the following; “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth. I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am [...]

Religious Sect Leaders

Religious sect leaders and preachers are hypocrites, just like the teachers of religious law and Pharisees whom Jesus warns us against. They cross land and sea to make one convert, and then they turn that person into twice the child of hell they themselves are! (See Matthew 23:15)

They are also the kind who work their way into people’s homes and win the confidence of vulnerable women who are burdened with the guilt of sin and controlled by various desires. Such women are forever following new teachings, but they are never able to understand the truth. (See 2. Timothy 3:6-7)

“They lure unstable people into sin, and they are well trained in greed.” 2. Peter 2:14 NLT

They love to brag about themselves with empty, foolish boasting. (See 2. Peter 2:18)

“When these people eat with you in your fellowship meals commemorating the Lord’s love, they are like dangerous reefs that can shipwreck you. They are like shameless shepherds who care only for themselves.” Jude 1:12 NLT  

“They will deceive others and will themselves be deceived.” 2. Timothy 3:13 NLT

They must be silenced, [...]
