Warfares in the spirit By Ivan Ho  16 Nov 2019   Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.Ephesians 6:10‭-‬13   One thing we need to know about the demonic kingdom is that it has its own authoritative hierchical structures in which lower ranked demons have to obey evil powers above them without question. In other words, they follow orders to do all kinds of evils and destructions on earth. They are the dark forces that rebelled...

屬神的信心 6

屬神的信心 6 作者: Ivan Ho 2019年11月15日 屬神的信心 5   有些人以為對神的信心是一種人無法理解,完全是出於神放在人心裹的信念。即是説,特然間一天神把信心放在某人心裹,他便開始相信神。曾有人對我説: 「我相信若神揀選我,我必將會有一天相信神 」。問題是,這種觀念似乎說: 信心是全然出於神,人在整個得到信心的過程中毫無話事權。 耶穌對一個患了多年血漏病得到神蹟醫冶的女人說: 「你的信救了你」。換句話說: 她之所以得到神蹟醫冶,是因為出於她自己的信心,而不是神的信心。她聽到耶穌醫冶各種疾病的人,相信只要她摸耶穌的衣裳,就必痊癒。於是按照她對耶穌的信心,困擾了她多年的病,當她觸摸耶穌的衣裳的時候,立刻得到醫冶。 馬可福音 5:25‭-‬34   信道是從聽道來的   若信心不是無中生有,是怎樣臨到我們呢? 可見,信道是從聽道來的,聽道是從基督的話來的。羅馬書 10:17   雖然神首先主動把祂的道傳給你,你聽道之後,決定相信或不相信的人是你自己,你要自行決定:「我聽的道是否從神而來?若是從神而來,我是否接受, 是否相信?」一個人不能只是不斷聽道卻不作出任何回應。 若基督的話語臨到你,你決定接受及按著神的話語改變自己,你便是得到信心。若你不作出回應,你還是未有屬神信心的人,直到你改變自己,決定信任出自神所説的道,作出正面回應為止。若你不安排時間經常聽神的道,怎樣可以獲得信心呢?因為「信道是從聽道來的,聽道是從基督的話來的」。 當你完全相信接受耶穌説關於自己的一切話語,你便是一個有信心的人。 但若你説: 「我相信神,但不相信耶穌是神」,你仍然是一個不信的人,因為不信神講關於自己的道。神藉著使徒約翰這樣説: 太初有道,道與神同在,道就是神。 這道太初與神同在。 萬物是藉着他造的;凡被造的,沒有一樣不是藉着他造的。 道成了肉身,住在我們中間,充充滿滿地有恩典有真理。我們也見過他的榮光,正是父獨生子的榮光。約翰福音 1:1‭-‬3‭, ‬14 以上經文所講的「道」就是耶穌,耶穌就是道,道太初與神同在,道就是神。...

God kind of faith 6

God kind of faith 6 by Ivan Ho 10 Nov 2019   God kind of faith 5 Some people tend to think that faith is some supernatural, inexplicable belief that a person has towards God, a personal conviction that is put there by God as He pleases. In other words, one day faith all of a sudden arises in someone’s heart because God puts it in there. Someone said to me: “I believe if God has chosen me, I will become a believer one day.” The problem with such idea is to suggest that, whether an individual has faith in God or not, it is entirely dependent on God and man seems to have no say in the process. Jesus said to the woman with the issue of blood: “YOUR FAITH has made you well.” In other words, it was not God’s but the woman’s faith that led her to be healed by the power of God of a condition that inflicted her for many years.Mark 5:25‭-‬34 Faith...

Sound view on marriage 3

Sound view on marriage 3 by Ivan Ho  14 Oct 2019   But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’ ; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”Mark 10:6‭-‬9   The above words of Jesus were similar to what Adam said when he first saw his wife Eve, as recorded in the book of Genesis: Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.Genesis 2:22‭-‬24   What Adam said was...
