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 is not a fortune teller

God is not a fortune teller by Ivan Ho 12 July 2020   God already knew Liverpool would win the title this season before a ball was kicked. But if He revealed it to us in the beginning all the fun and competition would have been gone. God isn’t into match fixing either so every team, every player would try their best to win every match. If you are not a football fan, think about watching a movie. If someone told you the ending of the story right from the beginning, would you enjoy watching it as much?In the same way, there are some things God knows must happen which He won’t reveal to us so that our faith in Him would not be undermined. Did Abraham know God would intervene before he sacrificed his own son Issac? Abraham didn’t know nor did Issac so that both their faith were tested. Abraham had faith in God that even if he killed his son that God would raise him...

David vs Saul

on Jun 1, 2020 in 1 Samuel | 0 comments

David vs Saul Notes on 1 Samuel by Ivan Ho 1 June 2016   Both David and Saul had been called and anointed by God to be king of Israel. Both had the same spiritual father in Samuel. But the two had contrasting outcomes in their lives: David followed after God’s heart. Saul followed his own heart. During times when God was silent, David’s soul continued to long after Him. During times when God was silent, Saul panicked and acted foolishly. When faced with pressures from the enemy and confronting death situations, David continued to walk through the circumstances with God. When faced with pressures from the enemy and confronting death situations, Saul compromised God’s commands and was led by the circumstances and his own flesh. David was always led by the Spirit of God. Saul was initially given the same leading by the Spirit of God, but followed after familiar...

God responds to your faith

God responds to your explicit faith by Ivan Ho    1 June 2020   Faith is visible The woman with the issue of blood had to press through the crowd and overcome fear of embarrassment to get her miraculous breakthrough. Jesus asked: “Who touched my garment?” indicating that he wasn’t aware that the woman was around. Jesus didn’t even notice the woman in the beginning but it didn’t stop her from making her presence felt. That’s why Jesus said to her: “YOUR faith has made you whole!“.   Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped. And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?” When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and...

The rise of Saul

on May 29, 2020 in 1 Samuel | 0 comments

  The rise of Saul Notes on I Samuel by Ivan Ho   29 May 2016   Saul was one of the saddest stories in the Bible. A man who had been anointed by God, called by God as commander of His people, touched by God, empowered by the Spirit of God, used by God to prophesy publicly….. then lost his God given position due to his carelessness and disobedience. Let’s recall how God had special grace for Saul who had a great start to his ministry before his fall. He was a tall and most handsome man in all of Israel and son of a mighty man of power. (1 Sam 9:1-2) God changed his destiny. While Saul was looking for his father’s donkey, he was reminded about a man of God, Samuel, who changed his destiny entirely by delivering to him the word of God. (1 Sam 9:3-27) God had a special grace and plan for him and spoke to him his destiny through the prophet Samuel. (1 Sam 9:25-27) Saul was...

Grace to build

Grace to build by Ivan Ho 27 May 2020   Nevertheless, brethren, I have written more boldly to you on some points, as reminding you, because of the grace given to me by God, that I might be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. Therefore I have reason to glory in Christ Jesus in the things which pertain to God. For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ has not accomplished through me, in word and deed, to make the Gentiles obedient— in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem and round about to Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. And so I have made it my aim to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build on another man’s foundation, but as it is written:...
