Jesus is Lord

on Feb 9, 2019 in Word | 0 comments

Some scriptures declaring Jesus is God our Lord:   Scriptures before the Resurrection of Jesus   1. Jesus declares Himself being equal with God the Father   “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.  But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32‭-‬33   “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.  And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.  My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.  I and My Father are one.” John 10:27‭-‬30   “If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me;  but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe  that the...

Following Christ 2

Following Christ 2 by Ivan Ho   1 Jan 2022   In the world as well as in the church we often hear F words like Faith, Favour, Fruitfulness, Forgiveness and so forth which surely are what most people would embrace in life. However, there is one word which seems to be much less talked about, and that is the word ‘Follow’ even though our Lord Jesus mentions it multiple times. The truth is, if we don’t learn to follow, ie, follow God, all the things we try to pursue in life would ultimately be in vain.   Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his...

Following Christ

Following Christ by Ivan Ho     31 Dec 2021   He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad. Matthew 12:30 NKJV   Following Jesus involves personal conscious decisions and commitment to pursue Christ and to do His will so that there is no such thing as having one foot in and one foot out as far as God is concerned. You either follow Him or you don’t, you’re either with Him or you’re not. Jesus knows who His followers are as opposed to those who are mere religious pretenders. Just as you are either married or you’re not, it is not possible to sit on the fence when it comes to being followers of Christ. When Jesus called His disciples, they all made conscious decisions and efforts to physically follow Him. They made decisions to leave behind their past and whatever are holding them back in order to follow Jesus....

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”,...
