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. But, if a man’s dead body or remains is left unattended to, after a short time, it will begin to decompose and exude a repulsive stench and thus become a nuisance to all. The longer a man’s dead body stays around unattended to, the greater the stench that will emanate from it and the discomfort it will cause all the people around it…

REKINDLING AND SUSTAINING GOD’S FIRE

REKINDLING AND SUSTAINING GOD’S FIRE

One of the primary responsibilities of the priests under the Old Covenant is to keep the fire burning on God’s altar perpetually. God expressly commanded them, saying, “A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out.” (Lev. 6:13 NKJV). God sent the fire, but it is the responsibility of the priests to sustain the fire on the altar (Lev. 9:23-24). However, God gave them specific instructions to follow so that they could keep the fire burning on the altar. These divine instructions are still very relevant and useful to us today to sustain God’s fire in our souls…

OVERCOMING YOUR FEAR

OVERCOMING YOUR FEAR

Your victory over fear starts with you understanding or acknowledging that fear is a disobedience to God’s command that you should not fear. God commands: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine.” (Isa. 43:1 NKJV). Any of your actions that is not borne out of faith is a sin in God’s sight; “for whatever is not from faith is sin.” (Rom. 14:23 NKJV).

THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND

The renewing of your mind is the continuous process of getting rid, clearing away, or putting off the remains, imprints, mindsets, desires, values, principles, patterns or passions of the old sinful and corrupt man (your old self) which are still stored in your mind after you are born again. It is also the process of re-setting, re-programming or re-installing your mind with the truths of God’s Word. It is simply putting off the old man’s mindsets (self-centred attitudes) and putting on the new man’s mindsets (Christ-centred attitudes)…

VICTORY OVER THE WORLD (Part 1)

VICTORY OVER THE WORLD (Part 1)

The world is destitute of truth because it refuses to accept Christ – the way, the truth and the life. (John 14:6, 1 Tim. 6:5). Rather than accepting the truth, the world always seeks to suppress the truth in unrighteousness; to exchange the truth of God for the lie; and to worship and serve the creature rather than the Creator. (Rom. 1:18, 25). Any believer who therefore chooses, adopts, or follows the ways, principles, modes or fashions of this world has jettisoned the truth…

STAYING SEXUALLY PURE

STAYING SEXUALLY PURE

The battle against sexual immorality is either won or lost in the mind, in the realm of thoughts. Whatever thought dominates your mind will ultimately control your action. Your thoughts form the basis of your actions. Therefore, if you allow or cultivate immoral thoughts in your mind, you will eventually act immorally. When you constantly incline your ears to listen to ungodly and sexually induced music, you are sowing seeds of lust and immorality in your mind…
