Goodliness vs Godliness

on Nov 6, 2021 in 1 Samuel, 2021 | 0 comments

Goodliness vs Godliness by Ivan Ho    6 Nov 2021   And he had a son, whose name was Saul, a choice young man, and a goodly: and there was not among the children of Israel a goodlier person than he: from his shoulders and upward he was higher than any of the people.1 Samuel 9:2 KJV   Saul who became the first king of Israel was known to be a ‘goodly’ person. In fact, there was no one in Israel at the time more goodlier than Saul. I didn’t make the word ‘goodly’ up, it was in the Bible, and for a reason. The trouble is, as ‘goodly’ a person Saul was, he wasn’t a ‘godly’ man. History shows that Saul wasn’t godly in the way he rebelled against God’s instructions. Herein exemplifies the kind of characters whom people choose to be their leaders these days, goodly men and women who aren’t godly. Like Saul,...

Unmasking the spirit of Jezebel 3

Unmasking the spirit of Jezebel 3 by Ivan Ho 13 Oct 2021   Unmasking the spirit of Jezebel 2 Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.Revelation 2:20 NKJV 5. Jezebel is a spirit of seduction   Seduction begins with suggestive seed thoughts To implement certain schemes, the enemy first puts a seed thought in your mind. At that point, it is just a speculative possibility thinking or imagination. That’s when you need to reject it straightaway. But like Eve, many of us just allow the seed thought to stay there without necessarily agreeing with or rejecting it. Then the enemy comes back later to water that seed and it grows. When nothing is done about it, the person allows the thought to grow in his mind and...

Unmasking the spirit of Jezebel 2

Unmasking the spirit of Jezebel 2 By Ivan Ho    6 Oct 2021   Unmasking the spirit of Jezebel   4. Jezebel contaminates the water at the source   Revelation: Contamination comes from the top not from the bottom. If the water is contaminated at the lower streams, it will be washed away easily. However, if it is contaminated at the source, the whole supply of water will be contaminated. That’s why pastors who place themselves at the top of a pyramid structure are easy targets for the enemy. The spirit of Jezebel often aligns with and attacks people in positions at the top of the hierarchy. The woman at the well was drinking pure water from Jesus who changed her life, and she was used to impact the city for the kingdom of God. By contrast, if a woman drinks water from a polluted source, her life would be messed up and she would become a damaging influence to the people...

Unmasking the spirit of Jezebel  by Ivan Ho  2 Oct 2021   Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.  Revelation 2:20‭-‬22 NKJV   Few things we can learn from the above warnings about the Jezebel spirit. Mind you, they are words directly from the mouth of our Lord Jesus. We ignore His warnings at our own peril.   1. Jezebel calls herself a prophetess Notice Jesus does not use the word “prophet” but instead He says “that woman Jezebel who calls herself prophetess”,...

God appointed marriage

God appointed marriage by Ivan Ho 16 Sept 2021   The Bible is full of principles and patterns especially the book of Genesis. If we follow these principles and patterns we will be successful. Let’s look at the story of Abraham’s servant looking for a wife for his master’s son Issac (Genesis 24). 1. Abraham commanded his servant not to look amongst women in the land of Canaan, that he should look for the woman who carried the same DNA of God’s people. So Abraham said to the oldest servant of his house, who ruled over all that he had, “Please, put your hand under my thigh, and I will make you swear by the Lord, the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell; but you shall go to my country and to my family, and take a wife for my son Isaac.”Genesis 24:2‭-‬4 NKJV 2....
