God gave three signs to Moses for the children of Israel to believe that he was sent by the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. What does these signs signify that allows the children of Israel to believe that way? In this post, we will explore the first sign, the rod that became serpent.
It is a general Christian understanding that Jesus Christ will come again at the last day to judge the world. But they often miss out what Jesus spoke about an immediate resurrection and judgment for those die before His second coming. We must also keep in mind that the Father has been resurrecting saints all throughout the history of this world.
It is one thing to obey God but quite another to do what He desires. The scribes and Pharisees were more focused in obedience to the law even rejecting what God truly desires. We can clearly see this in the good Samaritan story. The priest and levite were following the law by making sure they are not defiled by not touching the half-dead wounded man. Is it God’s desire for the priests to follow the law strictly at the cost of the life of a wounded man? Is it God’s desire that the midwives must speak the truth to Pharaoh at the cost of innocent lives? Absolutely not! Obedience is important but not at the cost of rejecting what God desires. God is seeking people after His own heart. This is the new covenant what Jesus taught.
The idea portrayed by secular world regarding demons are often incorrect. Demons cannot haunt non-living things like houses etc., but require a living host like humans or animals. Demons also cannot do unnatural things like telekinesis. If a spirit can handle material things, I am sure that we can bottle up and eliminate them completely from this world. Demons can be identified as the causes from depression to several sickness and many don’t even know it. Demons cannot enter a person unless permitted by God and He gives permission for demons to enter a person because that person doesn’t give permission for God to enter by not keeping His Word. It is very important to understand and identifying demonic activities.
God through the prophet Ezekiel mentioned about new heart and a new spirit. However, the responsibility of either giving a new heart and spirit by God or we having a new heart and spirit is not only vague but intertwined. Based on what Jesus taught, if we believe in Him by keeping His Words and bearing fruit with patience, then God will give us His Holy Spirit.
Many Christians often misunderstand why they require Christ. While Christ can give us all we require, He is not required to actually receive anything in this world. Without Christ, we can receive food, have cure for diseases, lay up treasures, have authority and even be wiser than those who truly follow Christ. So, why do we need Christ? Christ did not promise any of the things of this world. The only thing that He promised to His disciples is Eternal life.
Atheism is the absence of belief in the existence of God (or gods). Many atheists claim that there is no evidence of God but they are wrong. In this post we will see how anyone can find God for themselves, receive evidence and get His response directly.
Not all dreams are from God and not all dreams have meanings attached to it. We dreams through much activity and because of our desires of our heart as well. Only some dreams are from God and they have meaning to it. Not all dreams are accurate as well. God can give false dreams to test us but accurate dreams and its interpretation even to unbelievers.
Many are happy with Santa-Claus, Christmas trees and elves in most secular circles but become unhappy when Jesus Christ or His message of salvation is mentioned. Christians must never compromise Christmas by introducing traditions and customs not found in scripture. These not only gives opportunity to remove Christ from Christmas but also eliminates His message of salvation.
The term sons of God and daughters of men who bore Nephilim which is often translated as giants had fascinated people for thousands of years. Even during the time of Jesus, many often understood this to be a union between angels and humans. Does the book of Genesis gives us some clues to identify them?
While investigating the Antediluvian years, I noticed something interesting worth sharing which could help reconstruct the antediluvian years from 3 ancient source differing with each other. Noah was born on the year 1656 AM. This is really interesting because, Masoretic provides this year as the year of the flood. Also, we can clearly see that Lamech and Methuselah dying in the flood since they died exactly on the year of flood, that is 2256 AM.
