Learning from Paul and Silas 2

Discerning evil spirits

This is a continuation of the series Learning from Paul and Silas. If you have not read the first part of this series, please find it on this link

Hearing the Spirit of God speak clearly.

In the first series, we talked about God might sometimes forbid us, by his Spirit, from doing the things that seem to be according to his will according to scripture and how it is important to not insist and continue on our own but rather to obey him even if our intentions are right. Now we shall look how Paul could not only discern when the Holy spirit spoke, but also could tell when demons spoke. Continue reading “Learning from Paul and Silas 2”

Learning from Paul and Silas 1

Hearing the Spirit of God speak clearly.

 

Hearing God first, even when we are labouring for Him

Many times, when we talk of the Holy Ghost speaking to us, we only dwell on him telling us to do the things we know are right from the past experiences and learning we have made with God or in the church. Other times, he is revealing to us the mysteries of this world and the spiritual realm. And on some occasions, we see him rebuking, correcting and counselling us. Hardly do we ever think of the Holy Spirit telling us not to do God´s will, at least, when he says “not as yet!” Continue reading “Learning from Paul and Silas 1”

Healing the Scars

Last year, I got an oil burn on my hand. The wound was huge and the scar it left after 2 weeks was evident. I remember going to a pharmacy to get something that would prevent this wound from becoming a scar just 2 days after the accident and the pharmacist told me “it will not go, maybe with time it will get lighter and less visible but a scar will always be there” I went away and thank God for life and busy schedules for I never had a chance to worry about the scar or give it any attention.

Give Back To God, What Belongs To God

‘Then Jesus said to them, “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.’ Mark 12:17

Lord, should we pay tax?

This is a question that was asked to trap Jesus. It was meant to bring Him condemnation by either causing him to speak against paying taxes or by tricking him into implying obedience to worldly authority is more important than obedience to God. They knew if he chose one option over the other, he would be condemned. But Jesus answered it with such wisdom. He did not have to choose. He told them to give back to Caesar what belongs to him and to God what belongs to God.

In the Image of God

What does it mean to be made in the image of God? What evidence is there to prove that we are made in the Image of God? How can one identify the Image of God in us? Do we become less of God´s image when we fall from grace?

“So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. ” – Genesis 1:27

Understanding what took place at the cross

It is not a rare thing, to meet a Christian who has little or no knowledge of the very foundation of our Christian faith which is, Christ died for our sins so that we might be saved. Why is this so? I believe this situation is as a result of a lack of mentoring and ample time to study biblical truths about salvation.
