Freedom from bondage

on Feb 28, 2018 in 2018 | 0 comments

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...

Our citizenship in heaven

Our citizenship in heaven By Ivan Ho.  26 Dec 2017 Some people have lived in one place all their lives. Others, like myself, have moved from one country to another city which is very different from our former home. We have to adapt ourselves in the new place with a different culture, meet new people, and often times speak in a new language. The more we are willing to leave behind the old the more we are able to adapt to new life in the new place. Indeed, this is the kind of challenge facing every born again believer in Christ. Accepting Jesus is not just about putting up one’s hand and saying a prayer but more importantly, what takes place internally must transform us to a new way of life in Christ. When we become born again in the spirit, God has transferred us from the former kingdom of darkness to an entirely new kingdom of His Son. It is in the kingdom where Christ reigns...

The spirit of man

on Nov 18, 2017 in 2017 | 0 comments

The spirit of man By Ivan Ho  18 Nov 2017     We hear some people talk about ‘out of body’ experiences i.e. the soul/ spirit of man departs from the physical body after a person dies. But where does the spirit of man go? Does it wander around the earth? There are people who talk about their experiences in heaven/ hell when their spirits depart from their bodies for a while and afterwards return to their bodies to tell us their testimonies. Can we believe in these stories? Not all stories are true but some are true testimonies. The bible does mention out of body experiences of believers when their spirits leave their bodies to be present with the Lord: So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to...

Interpretation to dream of access to house

on Oct 19, 2017 in Church, Dreams | 0 comments

Interpretation to dream of access to house By Ivan Ho  19 Oct 2017 I believe the dream I have about the house has spiritual meanings as well as prophetic significances that manifest in the physical world. My thoughts about its spiritual meanings are as follows: 1. My family members represent fellow family members in the body of Christ. We are the ones who belong to Christ and share the same destiny in God. Jesus says: “My family members are the ones who hear the word of God and do it”. And it was told Him by some, who said, “Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, desiring to see You.” But He answered and said to them, “My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it.” Luke 8:20‭-‬21 NKJV 2. All those who are with me are my immediate family members.  Just as someone is born into a family, everyone must become born again in Christ before he or she...

Dream of access to house

on Oct 19, 2017 in Church, Dreams | 0 comments

Dream on 19 Oct 2017, HK By Ivan Ho In the dream, I see myself driving with my family who comes to visit Melbourne. Myself, one of my sisters and my mom are in the car. I am driving them north to visit one of two properties of mine on the outskirts of Melbourne. When we arrive at the place where the big mansion is, I realise that I have forgotten to bring the key to the house. So I say to my family: “Let’s have a look at the house anyway. Next time we’ll come back with the key to access inside.” So we get off the car to walk around and look at the big house from outside. The house is not a house that I have seen before in real life. We walk up the house and look through the full height window at the front of the house where the living area is and my sister is really impressed and says: “It truly is beautiful!” The living room is elegantly furnished...

Dream of preaching against false doctrine about Jesus

on Oct 17, 2017 in Dreams | 0 comments

Dream of preaching against false doctrine about Jesus By Ivan Ho On 16 Oct 2017, I posted a note on social media as follows: Jesus is God the Son who took on the form of a man, not a man who became God. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:5‭-‬11...

You shall receive power 4

on Sep 30, 2017 in 2017, Church | 0 comments

You shall receive power 4 By Ivan Ho    17 Sept 2017 Myth 2. The Holy Spirit falls on everyone, believers and unbelievers alike, indiscriminately. Some people read Joel’s prophecy and suggest that, in the last days, the Holy Spirit will fall on every human being, whether they are believers of Christ or not, regardless if they are born again or not. And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days. Joel 2:28‭-‬29 NKJV There is no denying that the Spirit of God can do many supernatural works such as healing the sick, casting demons out of people, including believers and non believers. But in baptism of the Holy Spirit when the Spirit of God falls upon...
