Was the Fire in Job Really From God?

Was the Fire in Job Really From God?

Hi, This is a post about a question I asked on twitter. The question goes like this. Who told this man that the fire that consumed Jobs sheep was from God? and How do we know if he is correct? While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. Job…

DIE! SO YOU CAN LIVE

DIE! SO YOU CAN LIVE

Mark 8:34b “Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. A little context before I get to this verse. Here we see Jesus prophesying his death and resurrection and at the same time telling us what it entails. A couple of verses earlier we see some lovely revelation from Jesus. He reveals the foundation on which he would build the church (i.e the new creation christian) when he told Peter “on…

God Stays

God Stays

Hebrews 13:15 for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. One day the children of Israel wanted to see the God that delivered them for the first time and boy was it an event. They had to cleanse themselves through various rituals in preparation for God’s visit. There was also set down rules on where to stay and what not to touch while God came. Finally God showed up and before he could get a word…

Focus On Jesus

Focus On Jesus

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. In this fast paced world it is so easy to loose sight of what matters most. Many times we get so focused on ourselves and our actions, works and deeds and loose sight of who really matter “Jesus”. The Holy…

What Is Love

What Is Love

Romans 5:8(ESV) But God shows his love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Ever felt like God had stopped loving you? I know I have many times. For many years I defined God’s love based on how good my performance was. I never ever felt good enough to be loved by God because my performance was not perfect. I was ignorant to the fact that my lack of perfection qualified me to be…

The Law Is For Kids

The Law Is For Kids

Galatians 3:24 Therefore the Law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith For the most part of my life I felt as a Christian what determined my justification was how much laws and commandments I kept, and due to that believe the moment I broke one law no matter how small I felt like I could never be justified in God’s sight at that moment. But thankfully the Bible does not tell…

Awake To Your Nature

Awake To Your Nature

1 Corinthians 15:34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame. Ask most Christians what it takes to avoid sin and you will hear things like flee from all appearance of evil, avoid temptation, be careful of the company you keep and many other self based replies. While all these are good advises let’s consider how the Bible expects us to do to avoid sin, Paul through the…

God’s Restoration Is Always Better

God’s Restoration Is Always Better

1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.   God doesn’t change but his actions are progressive, like a software update of phones, God always adds something new. In the beginning Adam was made a living soul, and many times we say after Jesus death God returned us back to the form in which man was at creation. We think we are now…

Boast Only In The Lord

Boast Only In The Lord

Ephesians 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.   When it comes to salvation not even the good works we perform after salvation is a reason for anyone to boast or feel better than any other person because it is all God at work. We have one part to play in salvation and that is having faith in God’s grace made available to us through Jesus Christ (Eph 2:8) Your near sinless life is not a reason to…
