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...

Warfares in the spirit

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

on Nov 10, 2019 in 2019 | 0 comments

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...

Dream 20.10.19

on Oct 20, 2019 in Dreams | 0 comments

Dream of police in shopping mall This is the dream I have on the early morning of 20 Oct 2019 in Hong Kong. I was in the lower level of a big shopping mall where I waived goodbye to a few people after dinner. Then I took an escalator upstairs to the street level, wanting to watch a movie. Arriving at the next level, however, I could see riot police wearing helmets everywhere inside the shopping mall and could hardly see any normal shoppers at all. All the lights inside were dim and the only light was coming from the street outside. Then I realised that I haven’t got a movie ticket and thought that only those with tickets were allowed to stay inside. Instead of going to the box office to buy a ticket and risking being arrested, I decided to leave the shopping mall immediately, seeing riot police patrolling around the arcade on the way out to the street.     My thoughts:...

戒奶後的正確婚姻觀 3

戒奶後的正確婚姻觀 3 作者: Ivan Ho 2019年10月13日   「但從起初創造的時候,神造人是造男造女。 因此,人要離開父母,與妻子連合,二人成為一體。 既然如此,夫妻不再是兩個人,乃是一體的了。 所以,神配合的,人不可分開。」馬可福音 10:6-‬9 耶穌説以上這句話,是引用創世記亞當第一次見到夏娃時的説話: 耶和華神就用那人身上所取的肋骨造成一個女人,領她到那人跟前。 那人說: 這是我骨中的骨, 肉中的肉, 可以稱她為「女人」, 因為她是從「男人」身上取出來的。 因此,人要離開父母,與妻子連合,二人成為一體。創世記 2:22‭-‬24 要知道,亞當所説的,是神啓示他的真理,藉著亞當預言神訂下的婚姻原則,亞當是神創造的第一個人,並沒有父母,但當他第一眼見到夏娃時,神已把男人和女人結合成為夫妻的真理啓示給他,亞當口中講出的真理,不是出於自己經驗,而是神啓示給他的。   人要離開父母,與妻子連合 這句神的話語帶出一些很重要的道理。 首先,神賜給我們父母,是家庭的核心,組成一個完美的家庭。不論是親生父母,或是養父養母,每個人都需要父母的良好照顧,教育及愛。這個責任,最根本不是屬於政府的,也不是屬於學校的,也不是屬於傭人,保母,或主日學導師,而是屬於父母的責任。很可惜,今天因為人的軟弱,加上撒旦的攻擊,或環境的因素,導致不少人成長的時候,缺乏了完整家庭父母的愛,照顧及教導。 最近看到一個記錄片,當中受訪的一個十一歲香港女孩,自小香港的父親離開了她及中國內地的母親,而住在內地的母親只可以不斷申請雙程証往返兩地才能與女兒間中見面,導致女孩經常獨自留在家中。這個真實故事可説是源於人不遵從神最初在婚姻上的教導而引致的不幸情況: * 夫妻不要分開 * 孩子需要父母一起的愛 這些類似不完整的家庭情況多的是,都不是神最初創造人的最美好心意。 最初神創造人,是安排人在父母的照顧下成長,直到長大後離開父母,與妻子或丈夫結合。...
