What kind of vessel are you?

"But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour." 2 Timothy 2:20 KJV

In verse 7 Paul says, "Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things."  The reason why we hear this word is so that we may be able to teach others also. All of us, including yourself, we are all teachers of the word. 

God wants you to be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus, so that you may also become a witness of his. 

Understand this also, we labour in the gospel and endure all things so that you may obtain and pass on to others that same salvation and honour and eternal glory which is in Christ Jesus.

Paul says charge them to not subvert hearers, but that they teach the true foundations of God, which is sound doctrine. "But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness" There are people who have erred from the truth, you know them, and many we call prophets of ours, these are good only at spreading heresies, and he gave an example of who these people are, and said such as say the resurrection is past already, and these, by so doing are they who overthrow the faith of many, "and their word will eat as doth a canker..." 2 Timothy 2:17. Cancer is a deadly disease, you seem to look well but inside you're damaged, so is everyone under the watch of false prophets - you’re finished. They tell you it's okay to divorce and marry another. 

Which vessel are you?

Anyway, I wrote wanting to show you how also you're a vessel of substance in this great house, and my prayer for you is  that you thrive for mastery. Be strong in grace and become a witness, "And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will" 2 Timothy 2:24-26.



God bless,

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

What do you want to see in a 21st century church?

 I wanna see the glory of the Lord come in the temple! Once again, that when I come in the temple, behold, the whole place "is most holy," Ezekiel 43:12, and the glory of the Lord is full in the Temple. I like this verse; “Seven days they shall make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it. When these days are over it shall be, on the eighth day and thereafter, that the priests shall offer your burnt offerings and your peace offerings on the altar; and I will accept you,' says the Lord GOD,” Ezekiel 43:26-27. Now, "…make atonement for the altar and purify it, and so consecrate it…and I will accept you," says the Lord. There is a river, healing waters; "flowing from under the threshold of the temple," Ezekiel 47:1. "This water flows toward the eastern region, goes down into the valley, and enters the sea. When it reaches the sea, its waters are healed. And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, wi

The people of Israel

The journey of the people of Israel is a fascinating story, and understanding it could possibly make your own life story too. It began when God called Abraham, and said to him, " Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and come into the land which I shall shew thee " Acts 7:3. He obeyed, and he left and lived in Haran, in a country they now call Israel. But God, gave him no " inheritance in it, no, not so much as to set his foot on: yet he promised that he would give it to him for a possession, and to his seed after him, when as yet he had no child " Acts 7:5. So, God promised that eventually the whole country would belong to him and his descendants, but these descendants of his would leave the land and live in a foreign country and there become slaves for 400 years. He said  I will punish the nation that enslaves them, and afterwards they will return to this land of Israel and worship me here. Later, Isaac was born, and Isaac had Jacob, and Jaco
