2 Corinthians 11:4 “For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it” (NKJV) Paul the Apostle held a concern about the Corinthian church. They were a group that were…More

1 Peter 4:7 “The end of all things is near. Therefore be alert and of sober mind so that you may pray.” (NIV) What is you mind meditating on? Peter alludes to us that when our minds lack sobriety and alertness, the discipline of prayer dies. And if traces of prayer remain, they are often low-quality prayer practices; rash- having…More

Today in my quiet time, I read from 2 Corinthians chapter 6. There is a section that we famously know (verse 14). 2 Corinthians 6:14 “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? (NKJV) It says to not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. A yoke is…More

Many people make plans at the start of a new year. It is a commendable thing. Even the Bible encourages it. Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established” (ESV). A new year often comes with new hope to make things better. For us believers, consider the following four things as you make your…More

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

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

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

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

Hello Ernest, I have a question. When you look at the scriptures, you often find a few instances where God asks people questions. Why does the Ancient of Days ask a question to a lesser being? Isn’t He all-knowing? Thank you for writing, Beloved. This is a good question 🙂 The short answer is that God often locates our hearts…More
