Divine pattern of marriage

Divine pattern of marriage By Ivan Ho   31 Mar 2017   And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 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. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. Genesis 2:21‭-‬25 NKJV   The influence of humanism “From Principle viewpoint Humanism is the reversal of all God’s principles. It sounds nice and has seemingly good aims for a better world, but it puts Object over Subject (Wife over Husband; Children before Parents;...

Hidden Bondages

Hidden bondages Author: unknown   John 8:31-32 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. Rom 8:15-16 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. Gal 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. These scriptures above are telling us that we have been set free, if we have made Jesus the Lord of our life, because whom the son sets free is free indeed. Remember God’s Word is truth, and the truth sets us free. In Romans 8:15 and 16...

Soul ties

Soul Ties by Frank and Ida Mae Hammond   There are times when we experience spiritual truth before we understand it. I am reminded of an occasion when a group of ladies invited me to teach them about the baptism in the Holy Spirit. In the midst of the lesson, one of the ladies interrupted me to ask, “Can’t you go ahead and pray for us to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit and explain it to us later?” Since it was scriptural, that is what I did. Remember the one hundred and twenty who were baptized in the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost? They had the experience before they understood it. My wife and I dealt with soul ties, through the ministry of deliverance, long before we had much understanding of them. In fact, long before someone introduced the designation “soul ties,” we referred to them as “unholy alliances” or “perverse...

Shonan Christ Church

on Sep 27, 2016 in Architecture, Arts & Science | 0 comments

Shonan Christ Church Japanese architecture studio Takeshi Hosaka architects has designed a new protestant church near the coastal region of Shonan, Japan. The single-story concrete structure’s long rectilinear volume is topped with a series of six gentle swells in the roof, all at different heights, allowing indirect natural light to illuminate the chapel within. On the interior, the roof’s peaks form a series of curved, concrete ribs, which are divided by panes of glass. This structure makes the ceiling appear to float, and casts radiant beams of light into the space.   Takeshi Hosaka architects about the design for Shonan Christ Church: A protestant church stands in a rich green residential area which is 10 minutes away from Shonan beach by foot. The chapel of the 50-year-old church became too small and it was therefore decided that a new church would be constructed on a...

Thinking Biblically about love

on Aug 10, 2016 in Marriage | 0 comments

Thinking Biblically about LOVE By Michael L Gowans   The modern mind thinks of love in vague, nebulous, existential, and non-definable terms. “It’s something that happens to you,” people say, “not something that you can define.”   This emotional, feeling-oriented, brand of “love” is promoted not only in music and literature, but by the popular media culture. Television promotes the “love as romance/passion” model so relentlessly, that even many Christians are confused about this important subject. In fact, Hollywood has so successfully infiltrated the Church with its view of romantic love , that the person who questions it or attempts to suggest an alternative position is suspect as an unrealistic, unfeeling odd-ball, if he is even understood. I am aware of that risk as I write. As I proceed to expose the unbiblical...

At Your Word

At Your word   By Ivan Ho Written 11 July 2016       When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!” Luke 5:4-8 NKJV   Peter and his colleagues were professional fishermen who went out daily to catch fish for a living. However, their business had not always been a success. There were times when they would catch a lot...
