Refuse not He who speaks from heaven

Refuse not He who speaks from heaven By Ivan Ho    24 Apr 2018 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?  And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.   Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.  And he said, All these have I kept from my youth up.  Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.  And when he heard this, he was very sorrowful: for he was very rich. Luke 18:18‭-‬23  Jesus called the rich young ruler to forego his riches to follow him. That was the word of life given to the young man which he sadly rejected because earthly riches...

Christ is risen

CHRIST IS RISEN By Ivan Ho  1 April 2018   But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Romans 8:11   Romans 8:11 reveals to us that the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead will quicken (or give life to) our mortal bodies, IF the Spirit of God dwells in us. Before we can properly understand what the above scripture actually means to us, we need to first establish some foundational truths, for there are some misconceptions surrounding Christ’s death and resurrection being taught amongst us. 1. Jesus did not go to heaven after death There are people who teach that the Spirit of Jesus went straight to heaven to be with the Father immediately after His death, and 3 days after returned to His body at His resurrection. Some...

Our enemy is a thief

Our enemy is a thief By Ivan Ho    First written 10 Mar 2018   The enemy only comes to do three things amongst us: steal, kill and destroy!   The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10   What does the enemy steal? If you suffer monetary or materialistic loss, they can be recovered. But there are more vital things in life that the devil comes to steal from you and a lot of people are not even aware of it. If you suffer financial loss, the enemy cannot really hurt you permanently, but if he can succeed in stealing the word of God that was sown into your life, it is not the physical things you possess, but you yourself are lost! If you loose your destiny, inheritance, calling, even salvation in Christ, you lose everything!   That is why whenever...

Freedom from bondage

Freedom from bondage By Ivan Ho.     28 Feb 2018     But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.  Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.  So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free. Galatians 4:29-31 KJV In the above quoted scriptures from the book of Galatians, God says clearly: That which is born after the flesh and that which is born after the Spirit do not coexist and cohabit together. We as followers of Christ must not allow mixtures of the Spirit and the flesh to mess up our church, our family, our life. If we want to live in true freedom, we must walk in the Spirit and walk away from things born after the flesh. What does the word of God say? Cast out the...

Our heart set on eternity

Our heart set on eternity By Ivan Ho.   01 Jan 2018 Life of vanity without God I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth? Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him? Ecclesiastes 3:18‭-‬22 KJV   This passage in the book of Ecclesiastes...
