If salvation wasn’t complete already, it could not be presented as a gift. Anything called “gift” was first acquired by someone before it was presented as gift..The competeness of God’s salvation on the cross was fully achieved by God through Christ’s sacrificial death and it didn’t need man’s faith to make it more complete. TheContinue reading “SALVATION IS A GIFT”
As Christians, we either apply from the scripture a principle to our lives, or a promise. A principle is a general truth drawn from certain truth from scripture that may concern God, like truth about His essence or attribute, or a narrative about certain historical actions God took towards man – unbelievers or believers, orContinue reading “HAVING FAITH IN A PRINCIPLE IS DIFFERENT FROM HAVING FAITH IN A PROMISE.”
Human beings can make threats, put fear in man, but one thing is true – God is the only one who can destroy this planet earth. There have been wars and rumours of war since the fall of man, and there shall continue to be wars (whether local or international) until Jesus Christ returns atContinue reading “WARS AND RUMOURS OF WAR”
When it all unfolds, you will then know that the Bible told you so. You will then realise that it wasn’t the bible that deceived you but those who call themselves atheist who deceived you that there is no God or that the bible is contradictory. The fool has said that there is no God,Continue reading “THE BIBLE CANNOT DECEIVE”
Oh yes, justification is apart from works. This is because the specific message about the cross (the gospel) through which justification occurs or any man for the first time receives the right standing before God, does not have in it any demand of work. By demand of work, I mean doing something practical by exercisingContinue reading “JUSTIFICATION VERSUS CHRISTIAN LIVING”
The issue of freewill has troubled some Christians when it comes to the things of God. Some think that freewill has no part to play in man’s salvation. Well, that always needs a proper explanation since salvation, even though stands accomplished, yet must be accepted in order to enjoy its benefit. So, yes, independently ofContinue reading “HUMAN FREEWILL WAS CREATED BY GOD”
Something will be awarded to Paul, and it is not heaven, but a crown. 2Timothy 4:7-8“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; v8 in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to meContinue reading “REWARD IS BASED ON FAITHFULNESS”
If the kind of theology you follow does not emphasise, teach, or recognise Christians’ eternal reward as separate and distinct from the justification of the Christian (because of his faith alone in Christ alone), then just know that you are following wrong system of theology. Christian reward will be given to those Christians who areContinue reading “KILL YOUR THEOLOGY BEFORE YOUR THEOLOGY KILLS YOU”
One command says,“Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil” (Ephesian 6:11) Another command also says,“Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist on the evil day, and having done everything, to standContinue reading “THE SPIRITUAL WARFARE IS REAL”
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” John 10:10. Jesus Christ does not give only life, He also gives abundance of it. There is a difference between having life and having it abundantly or more of it. In human terms, toContinue reading “GOD IS ORDERLY – HE FIRST GIVES BEFORE HE MULTIPLIES WHAT HE HAS ALREADY GIVEN”
