The unchanging truth about the believer Part 4

We have established unequivocally that what God has made the believer in Christ will never change. It is possible for a believer to short change himself through ignorance or lack of commitment (in meditation and practice) to the truth of God’s Word about him but it does not change who the Word says he is. […]

The unchanging truth about the believer Part 3

There are irrefutable facts about the believer in Christ. They don’t change even if he does not know these facts about himself. A man is a man even if he does not know he is. His ignorance of the fact that he is a man does not make him a goat! We examined some of […]

The unchanging truth about the believer Part 2

Times may change, seasons come and go but the truth of God’s Word does not change. What God said about Himself and the believer in Him is eternal. A believer is not one who is trying to match up with the standard of God, He was born with that standard. He is not trying to […]

The unchanging truth about the believer Part 1

A believer ought to know who He is in Christ. He must find his security in his identity with Christ. “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 6). The sharing of your faith is only as effective as […]

Forgiven to Forgive

“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” (Eph. 4:32-33). A parable was told by Jesus about a servant who owed his master […]

Living victoriously over fear

Fear is an unpleasant feeling of anxiety or apprehension caused by the presence or anticipation of danger. The English word “phobia” was coined from the Greek word “phobos” for fear. It means to be frightened or alarmed. There are all kinds of phobia ranging from hydrophobia (fear of water) tochronophobia( fear of the future) to […]

ONE WITH CHRIST – PART 3

Godswill Etu Believers ought to come into precise and accurate understanding of this eternal reality that the same Spirit of Christ is in them. The same Spirit that was a Master over sin is in us; ”For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made […]

ONE WITH CHRIST- PART 2

Godswill Etu Recall we have said; when we talk about God, we talk about a spiritual being. We therefore have a spiritual concept on our minds. The relationship of the believer with God is spiritual. We have also said that; Christ was the redemption price, the mediator and the mediation between man and God so […]

ONE WITH CHRIST – Part 1

Godswill Etu When we talk about God, we talk about a spiritual being (Jn. 4:24). We therefore have a spiritual concept on our minds. In the beginning of creation, the personality of God we were introduced to; is Spirit. ”In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth…. And the SPIRIT of God moved […]

HOW TO HELP ONE ANOTHER GET BETTER –Part 2

“Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality” (Rom. 12:10-13). The Christian walk is designed in such a way that […]

HOW TO HELP ONE ANOTHER GET BETTER – Part 3

Now in this that I declare unto you I praise you not, THAT YE COME TOGETHER NOT FOR THE BETTER BUT FOR THE WORSE. For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it” (1 Cor. 11: 17-18). This should not […]

HOW TO HELP ONE ANOTHER GET BETTER -Part 1

When God called us, He called us together. Believers ought to always see themselves not as individuals but as a family, even if we have individuals join us from time to time. “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the […]

Simplify your life

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, […]

THE “CAN DO” ATTITUDE!

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father” (John. 14:12). Wait a minute….how can a believer dare think he cannot work miracles? Jesus says “he that believeth in me” […]

The Believer’s Hands

The hands of the believer are extraordinary! They are God’s tools of working His miraculous power. We have sang songs like “My hands are filled with the blessings of the Lord, anyone I touch surely must be blessed” without understanding the full import of what we sang. We often thought it was just a mere […]

From Resurrection to Bible Study : X-raying Jesus’ Priority

Jesus rose from the dead There was no fun fair, No “angelic host party” No special “Resurrection Celebration service” No “Impartation Service” No “welcome back from hades” dinner held in His honour. If such a dinner had been held in His honour, we would have said it was worth it. In fact, if Jesus had […]

GIVING TO THE CAUSE OF THE GOSPEL – Part 4

HOW AND WHAT DO I GIVE? How we give and what we give are very important. Don’t give with nonchalance. Don’t give with an attitude of “If one does not give now, they will think that one does not want the preaching of the gospel to progress, they will think one is stingy” How and […]

GIVING TO THE CAUSE OF THE GOSPEL – Part 2.

Every believer in Christ is born into a generous family! Our Father is a generous God. If any believer is stingy, he or she is not living in tandem with his or her family DNA. Stinginess which is a product of selfishness is a display of carnality. To be spiritual is to be generous. God […]

GIVING TO THE CAUSE OF THE GOSPEL Part 1

It is an important aspect that many times we can overlook. Many times when we want to make a budget for the year/month, hardly do we see the work of the gospel as important. Many do not know that they ought to make provision for the cause of the gospel. They can plan for the […]

GROWING UP SPIRITUALLY- Part 4

“As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving” (Col. 2:6-7).

GROWING UP SPIRITUALLY -Part 3

Putting away therefore all wickedness, all deceit, hypocrisies, envies, and all evil speaking, as newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the Word, that with it you may grow” (1 Pet. 2:2) WEB. “Therefore, rid yourselves of every kind of evil and deception, hypocrisy, jealousy, and every kind of slander. Like newborn babies, thirst […]

GROWING UP SPIRITUALLY – Part 2

Spiritual growth is of necessity if Christianity means a whole lot to you. It is a process by which we come into a place of stability and maturity. Spiritual development is the essence of our Christian walk. It is not enough for someone to be a new man in Christ, he has to grow in […]

GROWING UP SPIRITUALLY –PART 1

God expects every believer to grow spiritually. He delights in the fact that His children are growing. Growth is a proof of life, it gladdens the hearts of parents when they see their children growing physically. There is an inner satisfaction that whatever little investment they have made in them with their earnings is yielding […]

HALLMARKS OF THE BELIEVER IN CHRIST JESUS – Part 4

Godswill Etu We have examined thus far in this teaching series two major distinguishing features of a believer in Christ. We pointed out that he must have a ceaseless lifestyle of adoration or thanksgiving for what God the Father has done for him in Christ. We also saw consecration as one of his hallmarks. The […]

HALLMARKS OF THE BELIEVER IN CHRIST JESUS – Part 1

Godswill Etu A believer is one who is growing in the knowledge of the risen Christ! He has confessed that Christ is Lord and believes in his heart that God delivered Him up (in death and burial) for our offences and raised him up for our justification (Rom 4: 25, 10:8-10). The believer has received […]

The Willing Healing Jesus – Part 4

The Willing Healing Jesus – Part 3

Faith is what gives direction to the power of God. Faith takes what God has made available. This is how we receive the healing power of Jesus into our sick bodies. What God is willing to give, man must be equally willing to receive by faith. It is not so much about the willingness of […]

The Willing Healing Jesus – Part 2

“And he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils. And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, […]

HALLMARKS OF THE BELIEVER IN CHRIST JESUS – Part 3

Godswill Etu CONSECRATION One of the hallmarks of a believer in Christ is consecration. Something which has been consecrated is said to be declared holy or set apart or sanctified for a particular purpose. It is not consecrated, declared holy or set apart and sanctified by itself but by its owner(Ex 29:29, Num 3:3, Judges […]

HALLMARKS OF THE BELIEVER IN CHRIST JESUS – Part 2

Godswill Etu ADORATION: The first and foremost response of the believer to the free gift of salvation which he has freely received also should be thanksgiving and adoration. ”Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his […]

The Willing Healing Jesus- Part 1

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him”(Acts. 10:38). God still heals today! His healing power is as real as it has always been. No sickness is incurable! God does not […]

Imagine you never knew Part 3

But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of […]

Imagine you Never Knew Part 2

I’d like you to take a moment right now. Just pause and imagine what your life would have been if you didn’t know what you now know about God as revealed in Christ. Imagine you never knew what you know today. Remember what you used to be afraid of that you no longer fear? Before […]

“Therefore my people go into captivity for lack of knowledge. Their honorable men are famished, and their multitudes are parched with thirst” Isa. 5:13 WEB “My people are destroyed because they lack knowledge of me” Hosea 4:6 ISV It has been rightly said “If you think knowledge is costly, try ignorance” Ignorance is dangerous…it limits […]

The Fatherhood of God Part 4

God is our Father. A father cherishes and nourishes His children. He is a loving and compassionate Father. He truly cares. No truth is so far reaching as this blessed fact, that our Father cares for us. I would like us to see the heart of God the Father. Jesus said this about Him “… […]

The Fatherhood of God Part 3

“For this reason [ seeing the greatness of this plan by which you are built together in Christ], I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named [that Father from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives it’s name]” (Eph. […]

It is a year of INTENSE LIGHT

Darkness will not be able to stand the intensity of this light. The light of the gospel of Christ. Ignorance will melt like wax at the instance of the brightness of this light. The doubts of the scorners shall dissipate as this light shines Many who hitherto have been afraid to communicate or herald the […]

PRAYING WITH REVELATION UNTO REVELATION PART 5

Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. Rom. 10:1-2 The heart’s desire and prayer of every believer who is growing in revelation knowledge of God’s Word should be that […]

PRAYING WITH REVELATION UNTO REVELATION PART 4

“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” Eph. 6:18. We have seen thus far that prayer in the New Testament has a purpose and it is done for a purpose. It is to the intent that our eyes of understanding may […]

PRAYING WITH REVELATION UNTO REVELATION PART 3

The most important thing we ought to pray about for ourselves and other believers is concerning spiritual growth. And knowledge is the main ingredient of spiritual growth.

PRACTISING HIS PRESENCE

I shared with you how important it is for us as believers to know that we have God’s presence in us and we have already come into same. The presence of God is not a place we go to as they did under the Old Covenant, it is where we are! “But ye are come […]

YOU ARE NEVER ALONE

There are prayers we pray and songs we sing that do not make scriptural or spiritual sense. Have you prayed or heard someone pray like this before “Lord, as I go out today, let you presence go with me…”? Songs like “There is something that makes me come into your presence my helper…” and the […]

THE JOY OF THE LORD

“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.” Isa. 12: 2-3 In the world today, many look for things that will calm […]
