Christ is a person and at the same time an environment. That is why we said you are in the world and not of the world because “If any man be in Christ is a new creature” 2 Cor. 5:17. That “in” connotes an environment, a place or a presence that you relocate to. So though we are in the world through the atmosphere of Christ but not of the world. Just as when you are in your mother’s womb, yes you are alive to the world, living but yet you aren’t aware of the physical activities/realities of the world but yet you are in the world. Your mother’s womb is an environment, another place entirely different from the reality of the world.
According to the author, he said, man has substituted the gold of the temple to God’s plan, purposes, and pursuits for His New testament Church – for the brass of the world.

And when we look at the Kingdom which is theocratic in nature, God deliberately extended that to earth because one of the features of a kingdom is to dominate and extend, but we should know that extension will never take place if there is no power.
Love can be a complex word for some and as simple as ABC for others. However, we all think of love as a positive thing. Most times we associate love with feelings and emotions, which isn’t exactly true. Love is about choice! Loving people is a choice, not an emotional decision. It is a deliberate act we choose to act upon.
Ruby is a gemstone that has a lot of values and it is uncommon around but for you to get the beautiful and the real ruby, you need to make it go through a lot of refine processes of cutting, separating it out of other stones, washing to get the real colour and clarity of it. One thing is that with all these cleansing processes, a ruby tend to lose it value.
Golgotha is the place near Jerusalem where Jesus and two thieves were crucified. Three of the Gospels use the name Golgotha, which is a Hebrew and Aramaic term meaning “skull” (Matthew 27:33; Mark 15:22; John 19:17), while Luke uses the Latin word “Calvary,” which means the same thing (Luke 23:33).Read More »
Not quite long, I shared some principles in detecting Gods Voice but later on, I realized that some don’t hear from God at all which makes it difficult to detect his Voice. And this is as a result of us not having the requirements for Divine Guidance. That is why I decided to write on this topic.
When Jesus wanted to pay tribute to the tax collector, he needed money to do that right? So he sent Peter to go and get the money from the mouth of a fish. The question is why did he send Peter and not John or James neither Matthew the former tax collector?
1. “Some day you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.”
Parable of the Sower Luke 8
I’m not going to dwell more on this topic but rather remind you of what Jesus said in Luke 8 but before then you should know that the seed here is likened to the word of God. Jesus was using this parable to analyze how people receive the word and how it works for them.
A man of honor is a THANK GOD man and not Oh my God man
