Eat not the forbidden fruit

Eat not the forbidden fruit By Ivan Ho   10 May 2017   The greatest danger of the false prophets is not in the lies they produce but the false disciples they make. When Eve fell into deception, the first thing she did was to give Adam the forbidden fruit. That is why God warns us of false prophets in the last days for they will draw people away from the true gospel of Jesus. Every time you see a false prophet, I will guarantee that you will also see false disciples of his. In fact, some false prophets have great numbers of followers all over the world, especially with the help of internet today. Rest assured that false prophets are not false prophets if they keep their false doctrines to themselves and living seclusive lives. They will want to pass the forbidden fruits to those around them, some sincerely wanting to share what they partook what they thought is good. They will want...

If God is for us

If God is for us By Ivan Ho    6 May 2017   And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:28‭-‬31 NKJV     God gave the dream to Nebuchadnezzar but didn’t give him the interpretation. Daniel was there at the right place and the right time to interpret the dream. The awesome dream spoke of the destinies of nations and the everlasting kingdom of Christ. However, of all people, the dream was first spoken to the idol worshipper...

Surround yourself with the right people

Surround yourself with the right people By Ivan Ho  3 May 2017   Be diligent to come to me quickly; for Demas has forsaken me, having loved this present world, and has departed for Thessalonica —Crescens for Galatia, Titus for Dalmatia. Only Luke is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, for he is useful to me for ministry. And Tychicus I have sent to Ephesus. Bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas when you come—and the books, especially the parchments.   Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm. May the Lord repay him according to his works. You also must beware of him, for he has greatly resisted our words. At my first defense no one stood with me, but all forsook me. May it not be charged against them.   But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me, and that all the Gentiles might hear. Also I...

God knew from the beginning

God knew from the beginning By Ivan Ho.  17 April 2017   “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him. And He said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.” John 6:63‭-‬65 NKJV     Note that it weren’t the pagans who sent Jesus to the cross. But it was the Pharisees, the teachers of the law, the high priest who persecuted and sentenced Jesus to death penalty even though they found no sin in Him. These religious people knew and studied the scriptures but could not get the revelation of who Jesus was.   Jesus knew who would betray Him Then there was Judas who walked closely with...

Make up your mind

Make up your mind By Ivan Ho   13 Mar 2016   “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” Matthew 6:24 NKJV   And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word. I Kings 18:21 NKJV   These words are not given to unbelievers who have no God in their hearts. Rather, they are spoken to the people of God. There are some followers of Jesus whose hearts are divided. They are the ones who cannot decide who their master is. One moment they read the Bible and agree with God’s words but the next minute they listen to the opinion of the devil and say: “That sounds good!”. They are being...

From the old to the new

From the old to the new By Ivan Ho    2 March 2017   Then He spoke a parable to them: “No one puts a piece from a new garment on an old one; otherwise the new makes a tear, and also the piece that was taken out of the new does not match the old. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine will burst the wineskins and be spilled, and the wineskins will be ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins, and both are preserved. And no one, having drunk old wine, immediately desires new; for he says, ‘The old is better.’ ” Luke 5:36‭-‬39 NKJV   Torn between the new and the old You keep going back to your old ways because you surround yourself with the same old group of people who have been putting rubbish in your mind. You cannot renew your old mindset that keeps you in defeat if the people and things that constantly surround your life remains in the...
