Divine order in the family 2

Divine order in the family 2 by Ivan Ho   31 Oct 2022   Divine order in the family 1   Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.1 Timothy 2:11‭-‬15 KJV   There seems to be a lot of confusions nowadays regarding gender issues, especially in Western countries. I learnt recently that in some schools in Australia, for example, teachers are told not to address students as boys or girls. They would no longer define a person’s gender as being either male or female but instead, a person can be anything according to individual choice. Just...

Divine order in the family 1 by Ivan Ho 7 Sept 2022   Why does New Testament scripture talk about Adam and Eve? Because Paul was laying down a principle which is relevant for today. Christ is the same yesterday today and forever, not just regarding healings. Eve was the one being deceived (1 Tim 2:13-15) and Paul saw it being a tendency amongst women, including church going women, because they fail to follow the order of God’s creation.   Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. FOR Adam was first formed, then Eve. AND Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. NOTWITHSTANDING she shall be saved in childbearing, IF they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.1 Timothy 2:11‭-‬15 KJV   If we are to understand...

The power of prophetic word 3 by Ivan Ho 11 Sept 2022   The power of prophetic word 1   3. Prophetic proclamation of victory   God speaks by His Spirit to an assigned prophet  Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the Lord in the midst of the congregation; And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the Lord unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s. To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel. Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord with you, O...

The power of prophetic word 2 by Ivan Ho   21 Aug 2022   The power of prophetic word 1 When the Moabites and Ammonites attacked Judah, king Jehoshaphat declared a national fast to seek the Lord, crying out to Him: If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help. And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not; Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit. O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do:...

The power of prophetic word 1 by Ivan Ho 11 Aug 2022   The Ammonites and Moabites, amongst others, came up to seige and attack Judah during Jehoshaphat’s reign. At first fear came upon him and he proclaimed a fast before the Lord. Let’s be real, enemies do come to attack us. We are not living in times of peace when we can just sit around and relax, waiting for our Lord’s return. While we are living in peace and counting our blessings, our enemies do come and attack us and that’s why they’re our enemies. It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle. Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazon–tamar, which is...

Gospel of the Kingdom

Gospel of the Kingdom by Ivan Ho 21 July 2022   Parable of Talents Thank God for all the services of people, some of whom being followers of Christ, who use their God given giftings to serve fellow men. In the parable of the talents, Jesus speaks about trading our talents with others instead of hiding them. Some interpret this as investing our money and making more of what we have, but Jesus talks about trade, or exchange of our God given talents with others. In other words, I give you what I have and you give me what I don’t have so that we are both blessed. This is how we multiply our God given talents.   For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway...
