“In the realm of the Kingdom of God, the power of prophetic intercession and spiritual warfare plays a vital role in the growth and establishment of God’s divine purposes on earth. These powerful tools enable believers to partner with God, aligning their prayers with His will, and bringing about transformation in individuals, communities, and nations. This write-up will explore the significance of prophetic intercession and spiritual warfare, drawing insights from biblical passages, beginning with Isaiah 62:6….”
“He took a few steps away from those who went up with Him to express the anguish of His soul.
That particular garden was one of His favorite places; there He spent many evenings there. But that particular evening, He was not there to spend just another time, as usual. He was there because it was time to do what He was born to do. It was like a woman in labor but having no strength to push out the child.
He knew it was the right thing, but somehow He wished He could negotiate His way and evade it.
He finally found the strength to ask, “If it is your will, take this cup away from me.”
But knowing that the will of God was not a topic of debate, consideration, or negotiation, He quickly added, “Yet not My will but Yours be done.” He surrendered.
He had reasons to choose otherwise, but He chose to do the right thing even though it was the hardest option.
He was weak, but He did not present that as an excuse. He simply surrendered for God’s will to be done.
The depth of His weariness became the depth of His prayer to God.
Surrendering is not saying yes to God in the absence of obstacles and weaknesses but choosing to…”
“Human beings have a natural tendency to be glued to the events of the past, whether positive or negative, mostly because the future seems uncertain and intangible.
Just imagine someone driving a car and staring at the rearview mirror alone; he will end up a casualty along with many others on the road. You cannot move forward in life by looking behind you.
Many times, we spend our days in deep regrets about the past and how we ought to have made wiser decisions. But the longer we stay mourning the past, the longer we delay moving forward into the future.
“Learn the lesson and leave the trauma” were the exact words of a dear friend to me when I was stuck at a low point in my life, which woke me up from my lethargy.
“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.” – Isaiah 43:18-19
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am…”
“As a younger believer, whenever I saw words like “second coming”, “rapture”, “judgement”, fear and hopelessness were my immediate reactions. I wasn’t sure of my salvation or destination after death, and I did not really know the Lord at that time.
However, after a few months or years of staying consistently under God’s Word and being assured of my salvation and destination in Christ, my fear of the second coming of Christ changed to joyful expectation and gratitude to Jesus for the gift of salvation.
What exactly should be the believer’s attitude to the return of Christ? Should we be afraid of judgement? What should we expect at His return?
The Bible does not leave us in the dark as regards the second coming of Christ and what a believer’s attitude to it should be.
“…This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.” Acts 1: 11
“…and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.”Heb. 9:28
“But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Saviour from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Phil. 2:20
It is clear from scriptures that…”
“Whenever I hear the word “missions”, the first picture that comes to my mind are imageries from the historical movies I watched growing up: swords, javelins, helmets, shields, a formation of soldiers marching in one accord, drums beating the war cry, and the soldiers looking all serious as they march straight for the target.
I think the dictionary gives a simple explanation: “An important assignment given to a person or a group of people…”
Missions in the believer’s context is….”
“As a young believer, one of the questions that tugged at my heart and kept me awake for many nights was the popular “why are you here on earth? or put simply, “What is your purpose?”
For a very long time I grappled with this issue because I was made to understand that life had no meaning if you are not living God’s purpose for your life.
This question on purpose became a prayer point for a very long time, as we were advised to do. Many times I fell depressed because I felt I was just living a worthless and ordinary life as a believer.
I assumed that purpose had to be something….”
