As a believer, I have come to see that part of cooperating with the Holy Spirit who lives inside of us in the midst of temptation is to talk oneself out of doing the wrong thing. How? 1. Speak to the LORD about the reality and rawness of your sinful desires. Tell Him without fear or inhibition. Our GOD can…More

Imagine you were on medication that was sustaining your life. The prescription of the medicine required you to take it every morning before 6:00 AM and remain perfectly still for one hour; failure to which, you would die. Would you ever forget to take that medicine? Absolutely not. Would you ever fail to get the time to sit still for…More

Christian friends on social media, let us normalise slowness to speak when we hear or read news from one spouse concerning a broken marriage. I am noticing a flurry of social media updates from hurting couples who seem bent to tell their side of the story directly or indirectly. One of the underlying effects is that the partner whose side…More

I was speaking with a friend recently on what it would take for the church to experience a revival. Without batting an eye he said, “Reverence.” It did not take long to see that one hallmark of followers of Christ that besmirches the faith is a lack of reverence for God. Reverence is profound respect, honour and veneration. God is…More

This blog is the third instalment of a series I am calling Recipes for Revival. We are looking at the necessary ingredients needed to bring about spiritual awakening. God desires that all people be saved and come to the saving knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:3-4). He does not desire for anyone to perish, but rather that they repent…More

Today’s blog is a testimony by a married man who went through the recent cohort of Powerhouse. He will remain anonymous in this write-up. He asked me to publicly share a summary of his testimony so that many can hear and be free. May it encourage anyone out there that freedom is possible. Regards, Ernest My battle and victory over…More

Throughout human history, God has beckoned mankind to turn away from sin and to return to God’s plan in repentance. The Creator of Heaven and Earth has enough foresight to tell that our deviation from His will result in death (Romans 6:23). God’s extraction plan is Christ Jesus. God himself has taken the form of a man and has absorbed…More

As I have observed the Covid-19 pandemic, I cannot help but see that this is a storm that has come to test the foundations of our spiritual practices in the Body of Christ. I get the feeling that God is not just speaking in this pandemic but also through it. There is a call to revival. It is a call…More

How effective are you as a believer? The moment you come to Christ, you become a vessel for His use. You enrol into His service. When I intend to do a house chore, I desire that the tool I use for the task works well. It is frustrating to work with a frayed broom. It is highly inconveniencing to work…More

Hello, Ernest. I am a believer and I have a question. We are taught to honour our parents. But what if one’s parents are not worthy of honour? What is the point of the fifth commandment? The fifth commandment in the decalogue (Exodus 20:12) states “Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the…More

If there is a perpetual resolution every born-again believer ought to have every year, it is the mortification of sin. Spiritual self-development ought to be at the forefront of all our earthly plans. But you have a real enemy who is bent on ensuring you remain in the mire of sin. We are told in James 4:7 that when we…More

This is to encourage any believer who is currently stuck in any sexual addiction. I’m borrowing these lessons from my own personal struggle and with pornography and masturbation and the victory I experienced afterwards. These are things I wish I knew then, based on the reality I was facing. 1. SHIFT YOUR THINKING You want desperately to be free but…More
