Why are believers different?

We claim to worship the same God, but if true then why are we different? How is it that as Christians we sometimes don’t understand each other? Jesus asked those who claimed were descendants of Abraham or God was their Father that, "Why can’t you understand what I am saying?" John 8:43.

He said, "I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me...," John 8:37. What makes you hate me so much that you want to kill me? "...you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this." John 8:40. Abraham would do good works, isn’t it?

Ask yourself Why can't I understand? Could it be because something, someone is preventing you from doing so; from believing, loving, understanding the truth of the gospel?

Jesus told them, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin..." John 8:34. 

Can’t you realise that from the moment you first sinned you also ceased doing Abraham's works? Sin has been a stumbling block, and don’t you see now your father has become the devil? Jesus said, "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God" John 8:44-47. The reason of so much fear, unbelief and doubt could be because you’re not standing in truth anymore. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He’s in control and the source of that you ever think of or do.

We claim to be Christians, but how come we are different? 

We believe and are different because some believers find it okay to have a demon that works to their personal advantage, But Jesus said, "I do not have a demon" John 8:49. Some pastors don’t mind studying demonology and practicing demonic beliefs. They don’t mind practising occult or having magical powers whose source is the devil, but Jesus said,"I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me."

You say God is your God? You may be kidding when you do that if you serve God and mammon because Jesus said if you do you don’t know Him. This is what you do when you know Him - you keep His word.

How is that we are different?

While others corrupt themselves, we seek that which proceeded forth and came from God, that we believe, not the one earthy. We want truth, the word of God, that which makes us free indeed, and we want the promise; "Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death" John 8:51.

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

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

How much do people know about you?

Hezekiah answered, " They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them, " Isaiah 39:4. I can hear Isaiah say, " What? " Then Hezekiah said, it doesn’t matter Isaiah, " They came to me from a far country, from Babylon ." What can they do? Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, " Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,' says the LORD. 'And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon .'" Isaiah 39:5-7. How much do people know about you my friend? Everything? Then hear the word of the Lord! This reminds me of one president. Someone said of him I don't think he can now be trusted with intelligence briefing, and in the futur
