Walk in the Spirit by Ivan Ho   24 Aug 2021   “Walk in the Spirit” has been translated as “Keep in step with the Spirit” in NIV. The KJV translation means man and Spirit walking together as one. NIV translation suggests man trying to keep up with the Spirit of God, and there’s a huge difference in meanings between the two translations. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.Galatians 5:24‭-‬26 KJV   Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.Galatians 5:24‭-‬26 NIV This leads me to the next...

The two sons of Abraham pt.2 by Ivan Ho 18 Aug 2021 If you sow in the flesh, you will reap in the flesh. If you sow in the spirit, you will reap in the spirit. Both the flesh and the spirit bear fruits but their natures are totally different. One cannot sow in the flesh and expect to bear spiritual fruits and vice versa.  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.Galatians 6:7‭-‬8 KJV   Sarah, when she was still full of the flesh, advised her husband to sleep with Hagar and gave birth to Ishmael, the son who was born in the flesh. She was unable to understand the promise given to Abraham because she was impatient and used her natural thinking to try to fulfill God’s promise. Her maid...
