When I am weak, then I am strong!

What is it in which you are inferior to other people, to other believers, other churches, etc? Is it your lack, need, illness, or weakness? Paul says, "for in nothing was I behind the most eminent apostles, though I am nothing," "…most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me," 2 Corinthians 12:9 "And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, " and be found of such as you do not wish; with "contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, backbitings, whisperings, conceits, tumults," 2 Corinthians 12:20. “… I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong," 2 Corinthians 12:10.  He says I take pleasure in infirmities, "lest, … my God will humble me among you, and I shall mourn for many who have sinned before and have not repented of the unclean

The Word of life!

The word of life is eternal life preached, manifested, or exhibited to you. The choice is yours my friend, to want to look upon, touch, hear, declare or bear witness of the same, but “whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him," 1 John 2:5. The message of the word of life is, eternal life, that God is light, and that we have fellowship with Him if we walk just as He walked. And now because you have the light of God, "darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining," 1 John 2:8. There is no cause for stumbling in you. The apostle says, “I have written to you, … Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one," 1 John 2:14.  It is the word of truth, an anointing,  "the same teaches you concerning all things," 1 John 2:27. Let this truth abide in you, and you abide in Him. He who does the will of God abides forever! "We have an Advoc

The Truth about Spiritual Warfare!

We or Us as believers, "though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh," 2 Corinthians 10:3. We’re all roped together, (you included) in this spiritual war that day you received Christ. Paul says, "for it was to you that we came with the gospel of Christ," 2 Corinthians 10:14. It is a spiritual war, in which we as believers do not war or fight according to the flesh, also, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal. We operate within the limits of our sphere and authority, and in all conflicts, we use only the weaponry God appointed us. He appointed the gospel of Christ to us, it is "mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled," 2 Corinthians 10:4-6. The gospel is "our authority, which the Lord gave us

Collection for the saints!

Now concerning collection for the saints; "as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also," 1 Corinthians 16:1 Every Sunday "let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper," 1 Corinthians 16:2 "Let all that you do be done with love," 1 Corinthians 16:14. devote yourself to the ministry of saints. also, submit to everyone who works and labors with us, 1 Corinthians 16:16 "And if Timothy comes, see that he may be with you without fear; for he does the work of the Lord, as I also do. Therefore let no one despise him…" 1 Corinthians 16:10-11 Take good care of your spiritual leaders, send aid to other believers too, and if you will understand the ministry of giving and receiving, more fruit will abound to your account for "God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus," Philippians 4:19. "Who ever goes to war at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and do

We are ambassadors for Christ!

 “God… through Jesus Christ…has given us the ministry of reconciliation," 2 Corinthians 5:18, not only so, but also He "has committed to us the word of reconciliation," 2 Corinthians 5:19. He committed this to you, to every believer, the ministry and word of reconciliation "that you may have an answer for those who boast in appearance and not in heart," 2 Corinthians 5:12. God is pleading through us, that all should reconciled to Him. The love of Christ compels us too, "that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again," 2 Corinthians 5:15.  God made "Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him," 2 Corinthians 5:21. Therefore we make it our aim, to be well pleasing to Him. Knowing, we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in our consciences. For that reason we groan, earnestly desiring to not be found naked. We want to be furt

Spiritual Gifts

Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant, 1 Corinthians 12:1. There are diversities of gifts, different ministries, activities and "manifestation of the spirit given to each one for the profit of all, "1 Corinthians 12:7. All these things, (prophecy, word of wisdom, knowledge, faith, gifts of healing, miracles, kinds of tongues and interpretations) "the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills," 1 Corinthians 12:11. For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, and have all been made to drink into one Spirit, 1 Corinthians 12:13. "And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues," 1 Corinthians 12:28. But the greatest of these gifts is love, and that we should earnestly desire. "Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially t

Keep your marriage vows

  WIVES submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord, Colossians 3:18. Husbands , love your wives and do not be bitter toward them, Colossians 3:19. Children ; - obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord, Colossians 3:20. At what age do you typically stop calling a person a child? Some say 16 or 18, but if at that age you still live with your parents you typically are a child who should obey parents in all things, not in eye service, but in sincerity of heart, and fearing God. Fearing God, simply meaning whatever you do, you "do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men," Colossians 3:23. Be at peace among yourselves, "… always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all," 1 Thessalonians 5:15. Let no one deceive you by any means; do not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, "For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He
