Beauty and the beast By Ivan Ho 20 Jan 2019 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ” Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”Genesis 3:1-5 Amongst all of God’s creatures, the serpent must be one of the most unappealing animals. So of all things that walk in the garden of Eden, why did Eve entertained the serpent? Although the serpent had an ugly appearance, the devil had...

Dream 15 Jan 2019 HK This morning I have a dream in which I see myself practising with my guitar for a talent contest. I am surrounded by some people who are in my group which I represent to perform the song item. I pick the song “More than words”, but as I start practising the song, I can hardly remember the first line of the lyrics. When I wake up, the first thing I do is to check out the lyrics to see if there is any message from heaven  above.

Kingdom of Abundance 2 By Ivan Ho     5 Jan 2019 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ” Matthew 4:4 Bread, in another word, food, represents the basic necessity of life that man cannot do without in order to survive. However, Jesus says: “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”    1. Jesus is the Word. First of all, before we go any further, we need to realise, when Jesus quoted the abovementioned scriptures, He is referring not so much to some ancient written documents, but the active and living Word that comes forth from the mouth of God. In fact, the living Word is Jesus himself, as explained by John the apostle: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with...

 Kingdom of Abundance 1 By Ivan Ho The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10   When God first created man, His intention was for us to live forever. In the beginning, there was no sickness nor was there death. That was the original plan of God for mankind. Not only that, mankind was the pinnacle of all of God’s creation, for man was made in the image of God, and the breath (or the Spirit) of God was upon him. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27   And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. Genesis 2:7     Sad to say, the perfect beginning for mankind did not last for...
