God appointed marriage

on Sep 16, 2021 in 2021, Marriage | 0 comments

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....

Walk in the Spirit

Walk in the Spirit by Ivan Ho   24 Aug 2021   “Walk in the Spirit” has been translated as “Keep in step with the Spirit” in NIV. The KJV translation means man and Spirit walking together as one. NIV translation suggests man trying to keep up with the Spirit of God, and there’s a huge difference in meanings between the two translations. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.Galatians 5:24‭-‬26 KJV   Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.Galatians 5:24‭-‬26 NIV This leads me to the next...

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...

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...

The weaker vessel

on May 11, 2020 in 2020, Marriage | 0 comments

The weaker vessel by Ivan Ho   11 May 2020   Mother’s day should be celebrated together with Father’s day but that’s the world. Some people who grow up in single parenthood unfortunately usually can only feel the love and care of their moms but lack the guidance and discipline of their fathers . In I Timothy 2:11-14, 2 Timothy 3:6, I Peter 3:7, women are said to be weak and people think it is discrimination against women, but we must rightly divide the word. In my observation, many women are weak because of one thing: they lack bonding with their fathers either because their fathers being too busy with work or due to separation of their parents. God never intends to create woman to be strong on her own. Unfortunately due to the predominant spirit in our society, many women try to fight for equality and want to be strong on their own. They don’t understand...
