THE ROD OF GOD

THE ROD OF GOD

Just as Moses began to see, call, regard and treat his rod as the holy rod of God after surrendering it to God, having surrendered your life to Christ, you also must begin to see, call, regard and treat yourself as sacred and holy to God – no longer as a common, unholy, natural or ordinary person. Anyone or anything consecrated to God ceases to be common, unholy, natural or ordinary; but sacred, holy, divine or supernatural!

PUTTING OFF THE OLD MAN

PUTTING OFF THE OLD MAN

When a man die his spirit departs leaving behind his physical body or remains for his family to put away, bury or cremate.

APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING UNDER JESUS

APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING UNDER JESUS

Disciples of Jesus are not just His students; they are His apprentices. The idea of a student is only theoretical. But, the idea of an apprentice is something quite practical. When Jesus chose twelve ordinary people to be with Him, what He intended was not for them to be mere students but apprentices, not to be merely theoretical, but to be very practical. The Greek word “mathetes” for “disciple” in the New Testament means “a learner or a pupil.” But in Aramaic, the word “disciple” does not mean a student, but an apprentice…
