Curious Arts!

"Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men : and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver." Acts 19:19 KJV

What is curious arts?

In this modern word it is literature, music and comedy. They’ll say you’ve some form of magical arts then if you could practice any of these.

Many of the believers who have been practicing secret sorceries confessed their deeds and brought their incantation books and charms and burned them. However these days, these are not destroyed. When a comedian or musician is born again, they say their books together also have been made holy, and straightaway they perform in church.

Acts 17:16 says, "Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry."

Won’t you be stirred up in your spirit when what used to be church is now full of curious arts; literature, music and comedy? What do they want these for? O, pastor you don’t know, it is dreamy, eccentric, fun and ultimately irresistible for it is it now comedy bringing people to church. What used to be burned in the early church is in today’s church taking centre stage, an evangelical tool - just not right my friend!

But when they destroyed those curious arts, "So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed" Acts 19:20.

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

The ways of the Gentiles

Thus says the LORD: "Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; Do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, For the Gentiles are dismayed at them , Jeremiah 10:2 NKJV. Gentiles are the people of this world; are people who care for the things of this life, who glory in flesh and blood, but sit in darkness and the shadow of death.  The LORD said, first, " Do not learn the way of the Gentiles, " second, do not listen to their foolish predictions, and thirdly, Jesus sending His disciples said," Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter a city of the Samaritans. " Matthew 10:5. Why? Because their ways are futile and foolish. This world is their portion, but us Christians, as Jesus was so are we in this world - strangers and pilgrims, for we are of God. All the wealth that you see around is the world's goods, but our treasure is above, and our help comes from there too. 1 John 3:14-15 says, " We know that we have passed from death to life, because w

Wise men from the East

After Jesus was born, wise men from the East came  to worship him bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh with them. Many people came to  worship him; shepherds, kings, and angels also. Shepherds came to a manger but these wise men came to the house where Mary were with the child. They came from the East to Jerusalem, asking, "Where is He who has been born king of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East, and have come to worship him." When King Herod heard this, he was frightened and all Jerusalem with him; and calling together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Messiah was to be born.  They told him, " In Bethlehem of Judea; for so it has been written by the prophet: ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, Are not the least among the rulers of Judah; For out of you shall come a Ruler Who will shepherd My people Israel. ’”  Then Herod secretly called for the wise men and learned from them the exact time when th
