The Vial Judgments

"And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the seven plagues, clothed in pure and white linen, and having their breasts girded with golden girdles. And one of the four beasts gave unto the seven angels seven golden vials full of the wrath of God, who liveth for ever and ever.

Called to be sons!

We’ve all been called to preach, to proclaim or tell the Good News of the Kingdom of God. He won’t change His mind about what He has called us to do, to go tell unbelievers that there is God. So let’s all obey God and answer the call to preach and  help people get saved.
We have to be faithful, obedient, and patient in order to fulfil God’s call. God may temporarily lead you to do something. That doesn’t mean the gift is gone or that the calling has disappeared, because the gifts and callings of God are without repentance. In other words, God doesn’t change His mind!
According to 1 Corinthians 12:27, you and I are the Body of Christ and members in particular. Each member has a role to play in the Body, and yourself my friend must know what God has called and gifted you to do.
You may not have heeded or discovered God’s call on your life in the past, but that call is still there my friend. The gifts and callings of God are without repentance! Make a decision today to stir up the gift with…

One hope of our calling

Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied, Jude 1:1-2 KJV.
The Apostle wants you to know that you’ve been sanctified, preserved and called. He says, "mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied" if you have this knowledge.
In verse 3 he says it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Why he’s writing is because "certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ" Jude 1:4. These evil men were teaching otherwise, like is the situation these days, that some think only a few have been called, anointed, or chosen to preach, but our salvation is a common salvati…

Passover Preparations Preparatory events!

After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take him by craft, and put him to death. But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar of the people. Mark 14:1-2.
Passover, or the feast of the passover was or is observed to remember Israel’s deliverance, and the feast of Unleavened Bread their quick departure from Egypt.
This chapter deals with Passover preparations preparatory events;
The chief priests and the scribes were seeking a way to seize Jesus and kill Him. Recent events and intense debates convinced them Jesus must be killed. They thought the most fitting time would not be during the festival for huge crowds, including many Galileans, would provoke unwanted riots.On the other hand Jesus and his disciples are also preparing. Jesus ate in the home of Simon the leper, and while there Mary anoints Jesus with expensive oil. She poured the contents over Jesus’ head. Some disciples led by…
