FATHER GOD THE JUDGE, GOD THE SON JUDGE, YOU A JUDGE TOO – WHY AND HOW?

Daniel 7:13“In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 2 Corinthians 5:10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. 1 Corinthians 6:2Or do you...

HE IS ABLE TO HELP

Hebrews 2:18Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. When signs of the end become vivid as they are during this pandemic, two groups of people emerge. The heaven bound saints, the minority, who rejoice that we are almost home and the spread hope. The majority who seek a conspiracy theory to fit the situation or a prophecy to scare people...

JESUS MAY OR MAY NOT APPEAR

Daniel 7:13“In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 1Jo 2:1 — 1Jo 2:2My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for...

SIGNS OF THE END ARE NOT THE END OF THE WORLD

Matthew 24:6You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Matthew 24:8All these are the beginning of birth pains. Matthew 24:14And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. Luke 21:9When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be...

THESE ARE NOT WORTH COMPARING

Romans 8:18I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8 is a chapter of courage, hope and optimism. By the time we get to Romans 7, Apostle Paul is frustrated by the enslaving power of sin. He commits sin he doesn’t want to commit. The right he wants to do he can’t do. He is a slave to sin. End of chapter of...

ITCHING EARS AND THE QUARANTINE IN ISAIAH26:20 AND TOPHETH OF DEATH IN JEREMIAH 7:32

2 Timothy 4:3For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. Isaiah 26:20Go, my people, enter your roomsand shut the doors behind you;hide yourselves for a little whileuntil his wrath has passed by. Jeremiah 7:32So beware, the days are...

TOTALLING TO 666 DOESNT MAKE IT THE 666

Revelation 13:18This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666. The Biblical book of to Revelation uses the symbols and codes because the church at that time was under persecution. The language was understood by writer and readers, but was not supposed to be understood by the Roman government officials and...

I WILL DIFFERENTIATE

Isaiah 65:13 Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “My servants will eat, but you will go hungry; my servants will drink, but you will go thirsty; my servants will rejoice, but you will be put to shame. Isaiah 65:14 My servants will sing out of the joy of their hearts, but you will cry out from anguish of heart and wail in brokenness of spirit. God speaks through prophet Isaiah, the...

WHAT DO THESE THINGS MEAN TO YOU?

Luke 21:28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Jesus tells the disciples how to respond when signs of the end of the world start showing. Jesus tells them that,the rest of the world will respond to these signs by panicking, worrying and fear. But believers should get excited because these signs mean your salvation is...

MONEY WILL BE THROWN AWAY

Ezekiel 7:19 They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be treated as a thing unclean. Their silver and gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath. It will not satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs, for it has caused them to stumble into sin. Proper biblical interpretation requires that we first establish what it meant, before we try to...

Rei Kesis

I sit in church or religious class and I struggle to understand what is being taught and preached. I realise a few other people are struggling too. The meeting ends and we are satisfied with having appeared. Somehow in my mind I decide that only a few people can ever learn and understand certain things. But this is not right. I read scholars' articles on very serious issues, the vocabulary is deep, the language is way above the average member of the church. My mind wonders and struggles with, how can this be simplified for everybody? God's word cannot be a preserve of only a few people. So at some point in my life, I resolved that it is my mission to make things simpler that even the least educated and youngest child can understand the word of God. Apart from my love for grey colours, traveling and eating chapati, I have a passion for teaching, preaching and simplifying everything for those I address. My continuous worry, is always, was it simple enough for everybody?
