Fight the good fight of faith

on Mar 26, 2020 in 2020 | 0 comments

Fight the good fight of faith by Ivan Ho 26 May 2020   When coronavirus broke out in Wuhan in November last year, the suppression of news and delay of lockdown of Wuhan city until 24 Jan allowed 5 million of Wuhan residents to travel here there and everywhere, with the travel hotspots in Asia and Europe being impacted the hardest. Maybe due to the ongoing protests in Hong Kong, not many Chinese like to come here to visit but it didn’t stop HKers from visiting China with thousands going to Wuhan. In a way, the protests have helped HK avoid massive outbreak of coronavirus in the city. However, there is recent upsurge of infected cases due to HKers returning from Europe and some from China. So far, thank God, our death rate remains very low. Last week, the 4th patient who contracted the virus in Wuhan died. I believe God’s protection is upon our city. Europe, however, is...

In Him we live

In Him we live by Ivan Ho   23 Mar 2020   Your faith  Your faith over any virus and diseases is your faith, not someone else’s faith. That’s why Jesus said to the woman who was healed from the issue of blood: “YOUR faith has made you whole”. Mark 5:25‭-‬34Other people may not have that level of faith and they respond differently to the crisis. They do what are necessary to protect themselves and their families. We cannot expect everyone in the community to have the same level of faith when crisis breaks out. That’s why I said: the way to defeat the spread of coronavirus is to spread Christ. Until people receive the God kind of faith in Christ, most will respond in fear when crisis of this nature hits the society. The panic reactions we see in the communities simply reflect the level of faith, or lack of faith people have in God. If we don’t have...

God kind of faith 3

God kind of faith 3 by Ivan Ho 17 Feb 2019   God kind of faith 2   1. Faith in Christ   When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.”Matthew 16:13‭-‬17 Some religious organizations were established using the name of Jesus, but the Jesus they preach is not the Son of God as revealed by Christ, and therefore they do not belong to the body of Christ. Some of these religious institutions, eg Jehovah Witness, Mormons...

God kind of Faith 屬神的信心 1

God kind of Faith 1 By Ivan Ho   1 Feb 2019 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1     1. Faith is not self confidence When we talk about the God kind of faith, we are not talking about having self confidence. Unfortunately, people who are full of self confidence don’t usually have the kind of faith spoken of in the Bible. People who are full of self confidence are usually reliant on their own capabilities and powers. They put their confidence on circumstances they can see, things they can touch in the here and now, things that are within their control. Lot of people with self confidence on the outside are actually lacking in faith on the inside. Their confidence comes from external things such as their financial powers, human connections, positions they hold rather than on God.   2. Faith is not religious...

Faith of Abraham pt.1

The faith of Abraham pt.1 By Ivan Ho.     7 July 2018 About couple months ago few people were praying for me. One sister in the Lord gave me Romans 4:20. Another sister saw me being blindfolded. Third one saw me digging through some mud with precious silver underneath. So I interpreted God’s prophetic word based on the faith of Abraham as illustrated in Hebrews 4: Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,  (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.  Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was...
