The hidden dangers of spiritual manipulation

The hidden dangers of spiritual manipulation by Ivan Ho 24 May 2022   Spiritual deception and manipulation comes from lack of discernment of the body. When a person fails to follow and obey the Spirit of God, he or she is open to follow other spirits. When the person is not connected with God the Father through Jesus Christ, he looks for a father figure from spiritual authorities as substitutes. That’s why Jesus says: “Do not call anyone on earth father (or mother)… there is only one Father who is in heaven”, meaning that we should not look for a spiritual guru as substitute for the Father in heaven. Not that God is doing away with spiritual fathers but He is aware of people becoming emotionally and spiritually dependent on “spiritual” figures instead of God Himself. Many people who become dependent on people in positions of authority are easily...

Separating light from darkness

Separating Light from Darkness by Ivan Ho 22 May 2022   In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.Genesis 1:1‭-‬4 KJV   When God creates the world, He divides light from darkness. That is the physical world. In the spirit world, there is the Kingdom of light that is separate from the kingdom of darkness. The two worlds have no fellowship with each other, the two worlds don’t mix with each other. When we compromise with the devil, we are already kept in his kingdom. The devil always offers us something from his side just like he offered Jesus something to try to keep Him under his...

Overcoming temptation by the word of God

Overcoming temptation by the Word of God by Ivan Ho 3 May 2022   The first temptation of Satan to Jesus was to turn stone into bread. He said to Jesus: “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become bread.” Some believers think that because Christ is in them, they can do whatever they want, and that sadly includes what the devil tempts them to do. They think that God has the power to do anything and so can they because “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength”. So they go ahead and do things that God has not told them to do, in order to proof their identity in Christ. In so doing, they have fallen into the devil’s trap. Some people spend their whole life trying to do spectacular things in order to proof to the devil that God is with them. Mind you, our identity in Christ is not governed by what we do. We are who we are by...

Word of Life

  Word of Life by Ivan Ho    11 May 2022   The word of life is in the word of God. When God said to Adam: “Eat this, don’t eat that..”, God gave Adam and Eve the word of life. The do and don’t are both the word of life. “Of every tree in the garden you may freely eat, BUT if you eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, you will surely die”. The word of death came from the mouth of the devil who tempted Eve to disobey God by eating from the tree that was forbidden by God. Eve was led by her soulish desires and was led astray. Not only that, she led her husband to death as well by preaching to him a false gospel. Eve was deceived because she followed the advice from the deceiver. Adam wasn’t deceived because Eve didn’t set out to deceive her husband. The woman genuinely believed that she was offering something positive and...

Salvation by Grace through Faith

Salvation by Grace through Faith by Ivan Ho 23 Apr 2022   You are not saved by your works nor are you defined by what you do. You are saved purely by the grace of God through your faith in Him. Those who try to attain salvation through their works, which is basically what most religions teach, have alienated themselves from Christ. You are not saved by works but rather saved unto good works. God saved you and gave you your job description. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.Ephesians 2:8‭-‬10 KJV   Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be...
