God kind of faith 3 by Ivan Ho 17 Feb 2019 1. Faith in Christ God kind of faith 2 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.”Matthew 16:13‭-‬17 Some religious organizations were established using the name of Jesus, but the Jesus they preach is not the Son of God as revealed by Christ, and therefore they do not belong to the body of Christ. Some of these religious institutions, eg Jehovah Witness, Mormons etc. only regard Jesus...

Historical Evidence for the Resurrection

on Feb 9, 2019 in External links | 0 comments

Historical Evidence for the Resurrection Article by Matt Perman Guest Contributor The historical evidence for the resurrection of Christ is very good. Scholars such as William Lane Craig, J.P. Moreland, Gary Habermas, and others have done an especially good job of detailing that evidence.  It is the aim of this article to offer a sort of synthesis of some of their key points and show the strength of the historical evidence for the resurrection of Christ. A method commonly used today to determine the historicity of an event is “inference to the best explanation.” William Lane Craig describes this as an approach where we “begin with the evidence available to us and then infer what would, if true, provide the best explanation of that evidence.” In other words, we ought to accept an event as historical if it gives the best explanation for the evidence surrounding...

怎樣可以證明耶穌確實復活了?

on Feb 9, 2019 in External links | 0 comments

怎樣可以證明耶穌確實復活了? 作者 賴若瀚牧師.   主耶穌在世生活的年代,沒有先進的傳媒科技,把祂的言行經歷拍攝下來,或把祂復活的事實,以現場報導的方式公開予公眾。但當時的使徒及許多在世的人,也親身見證祂的復活,見過祂顯現,目送祂升到天上,且聽見祂應許,有一天祂會再降臨人間,讓普世的人知曉。 耶穌基督的門徒留下了四卷福音書,詳細記述祂死而復活的事實。我們今日讀了福音書,也許仍會對這些記述存疑。那麼,我們可以嘗試用邏輯學上的「消去法」(Elimination Method),來推論一下耶穌基督復活的記述是否可信。 甚麼是「消去法」?先說一個小故事,會有助我們明白: 從前有一個屆齡服役的年輕人,被徵召去當兵,正好是最艱苦的兵種:海軍陸戰隊。年輕人憂心忡忡,茶飯不思。有一位智者看見他這副模樣,便試圖開導他。 智者說:「孩子啊,沒甚麼好擔心的。當海軍陸戰隊有兩個可能,一個是擔任內勤職務,另一個是擔任前線職務。如果所分到的是內勤職務,就沒甚麼好擔心的了!」 年輕人問道:「若是被分發到前線去呢?」 智者說:「那又有兩個可能,一個是專事站崗的衛兵,保證平安退伍;另一個是有出勤的任務,那就可能作戰負傷。如果是當站崗的衛兵,沒有甚麼好怕的!」 年輕人問:「那麼,若是遇上作戰負傷呢?」 智者回答說:「那還是有兩個可能,一個是受輕傷,被送回本島;另一個是受重傷。如果受了輕傷,可以醫好,又能回家休假,也不用擔心呀!」 年輕人問:「那麼,若是受了重傷,怎麼辦?」 智者回答說:「那還是有兩個可能,一個是醫治後復原,另一個是傷重不治。若是最後得以復原,有甚麼好擔心的呀!」 年輕人最恐懼的部分來了,他顫聲問:「那……若是遇上傷重不治,怎麼辦?」智者大笑說: 「若真是那樣,你人都死了,還擔甚麼心呢?」   一. 用消去法(Elimination Method)推論出耶穌基督確已復活  ...

表明耶穌是神的ㄧ些經文:     耶穌未復活之前的經文   1. 耶穌宣告自己和天父相同地位   「凡在人面前認我的,我在我天上的父面前也必認他; 凡在人面前不認我的,我在我天上的父面前也必不認他。」 馬太福音 10:32‭-‬33   「 我又賜給他們永生;他們永不滅亡,誰也不能從我手裏把他們奪去。 我父把羊賜給我,他比萬有都大,誰也不能從我父手裏把他們奪去。 我與父原為一。」 約翰福音 10:28‭-‬30     「我若不行我父的事,你們就不必信我; 我若行了,你們縱然不信我,也當信這些事,叫你們又知道又明白父在我裏面,我也在父裏面。」 約翰福音 10:37‭-‬38   耶穌說:「我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉着我,沒有人能到父那裏去。」 約翰福音 14:6   2. 只有神有權柄赦免人的罪   耶穌上了船,渡過海 ,來到自己的城裏。 有人用褥子擡着一個癱子到耶穌跟前來。耶穌見他們的信心,就對癱子說:「小子,放心吧!你的罪赦了。」 有幾個文士心裏說:「這個人說僭妄的話了。」 耶穌知道他們的心意,就說:「你們為甚麼心裏懷着惡念呢? 或說『你的罪赦了』,或說『你起來行走』,哪一樣容易呢? 但要叫你們知道,人子在地上有赦罪的權柄」;就對癱子說:「起來!拿你的褥子回家去吧。」 那人就起來,回家去了。 眾人看見都驚奇,就歸榮耀與神,因為他將這樣的權柄賜給人。 馬太福音 9:1‭-‬8   3. 世界未被創造以先耶穌已與天父同在   耶穌說了這話,就舉目望天,說:「父啊,時候到了,願你榮耀你的兒子,使兒子也榮耀你; 正如你曾賜給他權柄管理凡有血氣的,叫他將永生賜給你所賜給他的人。 認識你-獨一的真神,並且認識你所差來的耶穌基督,這就是永生。 我在地上已經榮耀你,你所託付我的事,我已成全了。 父啊,現在求你使我同你享榮耀,就是未有世界以先,我同你所有的榮耀。」 約翰福音 17:1‭-‬5  ...

Some scriptures declaring Jesus is God our Lord:   Scriptures before the Resurrection of Jesus   1. Jesus declares Himself being equal with God the Father   “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.  But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32‭-‬33   “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.  And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.  My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.  I and My Father are one.” John 10:27‭-‬30   “If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me;  but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe  that the...

God kind of faith 2 By Ivan Ho  6 Jan 2019   God kind of faith 1 1. Faith in Christ But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.Hebrews 11:6 What does it mean when Paul says:  “Without faith it is impossible to please God”? What does a person have faith in? A lot of people say they believe in God but have very little idea about who God is, what He has said, what He is saying now, what He did and what He is doing amongst us today. They don’t have any real relationship with God, let alone have any desire to seek God personally and communicate with Him on a regular basis. It is like I always try to speak to you but you never respond nor proactively approach me and dialogue with me. lf this is how you relate with God, do you think such attitude would be pleasing to...

God kind of Faith 屬神的信心 1

God kind of Faith 1 By Ivan Ho   1 Feb 2019 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1     1. Faith is not self confidence When we talk about the God kind of faith, we are not talking about having self confidence. Unfortunately, people who are full of self confidence don’t usually have the kind of faith spoken of in the Bible. People who are full of self confidence are usually reliant on their own capabilities and powers. They put their confidence on circumstances they can see, things they can touch in the here and now, things that are within their control. Lot of people with self confidence on the outside are actually lacking in faith on the inside. Their confidence comes from external things such as their financial powers, human connections, positions they hold rather than on God.   2. Faith is not religious...

Beauty and the beast 美女與野獸

Beauty and the beast By Ivan Ho 20 Jan 2019 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ” Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”Genesis 3:1-5 Amongst all of God’s creatures, the serpent must be one of the most unappealing animals. So of all things that walk in the garden of Eden, why did Eve entertained the serpent? Although the serpent had an ugly appearance, the devil had...
