Be it unto me according to your word

on Dec 24, 2020 in 2020 | 0 comments

Be it unto me according to your word by Ivan Ho 24 Dec 2020   The true story of Christmas shows the contrast between the right response and wrong response (or no response) to the prophetic word of God. Zacharias responded in unbelief when an angel of the Lord prophesied the birth of his son John. As a result, he was made dumb until the promise was fulfilled. Sometimes, God stops communication with unbelievers, naysayers for a season without allowing them to negate the prophetic word.  And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth....

Align every thought

Align every thought By Ivan Ho 16 Dec 2020   Wrong thoughts lead to all kinds of confusions and bad decisions in a person’s life. A lot of times wrong thoughts give us good feelings and good projections about what could happen in the future. Such thought is called imagination, a seed thought that the enemy plants in our minds that exalts itself above the knowledge of God. In the garden of Eden, the devil was speaking to Eve to try to influence her thinking. After listening to the devil’s suggestion, her soul began to imagine how good the forbidden fruit looked and how desirable it would be to gain wisdom. The thought on her mind contested the word of God but it gave her good feeling. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and...

The appointed time of fulfillment

The appointed time of fulfillment  By Ivan Ho   19 Nov 2020   When God speaks to you prophetically in a dream, in a vision, how should you respond to it? Most people have no idea and just carry on business as usual. Over time when nothing seems to happen they dismiss or forget about it. God spoke to Habakuk the prophet that shows us some important principles.   1. Write down the vision That is perhaps the easiest thing to do but a lot of people don’t do it. We don’t have to understand or try to interpret the dream which is a revelation about some future events or revelation about what is in God’s heart. There are things that God knows that we don’t and God is bringing revelation in the form of dreams and visions. The first step we need to do is write down as we receive them. If we don’t we will forget about it over time. Last year I browsed...

Humble yourself

Humble yourself by Ivan Ho    14 Nov 2020   How Lucifer became Satan Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.  Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.  By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.  Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.  Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of...

Prophetic words Ivan Ho    4 Nov 2020   Last night our house church gathered as usual but it wasn’t a usual night. After worship, I volunteered to replace the person who was absent to be interviewed by other house church members. The following is a record of the prophetic words given to me by various group members. 1. Courage and desire to share gospel with foreign land 2. Strong foundation on the word of God 3. Picture of land flowing with milk and honey and a ladder to reach there 4. Picture of an umbrella over me 5. Peace over my life in difficult times The above prophetic words were given by different brothers and sisters in our house church. After I went home, I messaged a brother whether he too had a word for me during the meeting. Sure enough he did see a picture which he didn’t feel comfortable to share during the meeting, as follows: 6. Picture of a red horse...

Pathway to Eternal Life 2

Pathway to Eternal Life 2 By Ivan Ho 27 Oct 2020   Recently, someone said to me: “Isn’t it unfair that no matter what people have done in their lives, if they believe in Jesus they go to heaven, and if they don’t believe in Him they go to hell?” If that is your question as well, let me say this: “To believe in Jesus means you believe in who Jesus says He is, that He is the Son of God who came to earth about 2000 years ago and died for the sins of mankind, and that He was resurrected 3 days after. However, just because Jesus died for the sins of the world does not mean that everyone is saved automatically. Jesus says: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life” John 3:16 He goes on to say: “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does...

Pathway to Eternal Life 1

Pathway to Eternal Life 1 by Ivan Ho 26 Oct 2020   Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”John 3:3   When Jesus says “cannot” he means “can’t, no way, not possible…”. Unless a man is born again in his spirit, he cannot see the kingdom of God. If he cannot see the kingdom of God, he cannot enter in either. If he cannot see the kingdom of God, he is still in darkness. It doesn’t matter if he attends church regularly, sings in the choir, joins bible study classes, graduates from a seminary… if he is not born again, he does not belong to God’s kingdom. Nicodemus was a Pharisee, a religious group who try to adhere to the rules and regulations in the scriptures (plus rules they make up), but like most if not all Pharisees, he wasn’t yet born again....

Let Faith Arise

on Oct 24, 2020 in 2020 | 0 comments

Let Faith Arise by Ivan Ho 24 Oct 2020 By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised. Hebrews 11:11   FAITH is personal and not everyone has the same measure of faith. Faith is something that can be developed in a person. When Sarah was told she would give birth to a child at her old age, she initially laughed at the idea. She even caused much pain and troubles by setting up Hagar to have child with Abraham. But ultimately she too was vindicated by her faith in giving birth to Issac. A person who has no faith in the beginning can develop faith if he holds fast to the word spoken over his life. Without the word of God, there is no substance to base our faith on. God is not impressed by the abundance of religious activities we involve ourselves in, nor is he impressed...
