The two sons of Abraham

on May 4, 2021 in 2021 | 0 comments

  The two sons of Abraham by Ivan Ho 4 May 2021   There are typically two contrasting characters operating within the church: those who are of the Spirit vs those who are of the flesh. Both are living in the same house but they are fighting and struggling with each other within the same household. Abraham had two sons, Issac who was born according to the promise, and Ishmael who was born in the flesh. They represent two forces struggling with each other within the same family. Jesus often spent time with His Father and only did what He saw the Father doing. Those who are of the spirit are empowered by the Spirit of God, they follow the guidance and leading of the Spirit to do the will of the Father. When nothing seems to be happening in the physical realm, it doesn’t mean that things aren’t taking place in the spirit realm. Mind you, since God spoke through the...

The original design

The original design by Ivan Ho    22 Apr 2021 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.1 Timothy 2:13 KJV   Adam was created first then Eve was created to complete God’s creation. That is the divine order and pattern of creation. God created the woman and brought her to the man and the two became one. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto 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 shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.Genesis 2:21‭-‬24 KJV Eve was created as a helper to help Adam fulfill his God given destiny, not the...

Position for God encounter

Position for God encounter by Ivan Ho    29 Mar 2021   Position for God encounter God encounter is not a chance encounter. Rather, it involves purposeful positioning. When God first appeared to Samuel, the boy did not know who was speaking. He had to position himself attentively in order to hear from God. When the woman with the issue of blood heard that Jesus was in town, she had to purposefully move to where Jesus was in order to touch his garment. The moment she did that, she was set free. The disciples had to position themselves in the upper room to wait for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. God is near you but unless you realise His presence and position yourself accurately, you will not encounter his presence. There is a meeting place between you and God made possible by Christ . When you purposefully move across to that God appointed place, you will...

Bad food Bad mood

Bad Food Bad Mood Many people crave for junk food when they are bored or depressed. In the long run, however, junk food is the cause of depression, according to studies.   Eating junk food increases the risk of becoming depressed, a study has found, prompting calls for doctors to routinely give dietary advice to patients as part of their treatment for depression. In contrast, those who follow a traditional Mediterranean diet are much less likely to develop depression because the fish, fruit, nuts and vegetables that diet involves help protect against Britain’s commonest mental health problem, the research suggests. Original article: junk food raises risk of depression   Researchers at the University of Melbourne examined over 1000 randomly selected women, ages 20-93, assessing for symptoms of depression and anxiety and comparing “traditional” diets to “western” diets. They...

Junk food and inflammation

on Mar 27, 2021 in Health | 0 comments

Junk Food and Inflammation Diets high in sugar and processed food make your immune system more aggressive, raising the level of inflammatory chemicals in your body. The harmful effects of junk food last a long time, even if you don’t eat it very often. Fascinating new research has shown the body reacts to a junk food meal in a similar manner as to a bacterial infection. This finding comes from a recent study from the University of Bonn. Eating unhealthy food makes your immune defenses more aggressive in the long term. Even if you switch to a healthy diet, the inflammation generated in your body through regular immune challenges becomes heightened. Such long term immune changes may raise the risk of arteriosclerosis and type 2 diabetes, both diseases linked to excess inflammation and a Western diet.  Read more on  junk food creates more inflammation Inflammatory bowel disease linked to...
