The Word of Promise 3 by Ivan Ho   28 Jan 2023   The Word of Promise 1   Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan.Genesis 12:1‭-‬5 NKJV   Who gives you the promise ? God first gave...

God kind of faith 3 by Ivan Ho 17 Feb 2019   God kind of faith 2   1. Faith in Christ   When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?” So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.”Matthew 16:13‭-‬17 Some religious organizations were established using the name of Jesus, but the Jesus they preach is not the Son of God as revealed by Christ, and therefore they do not belong to the body of Christ. Some of these religious institutions, eg Jehovah Witness, Mormons...

表明耶穌是神的ㄧ些經文:     耶穌未復活之前的經文   1. 耶穌宣告自己和天父相同地位   「凡在人面前認我的,我在我天上的父面前也必認他; 凡在人面前不認我的,我在我天上的父面前也必不認他。」 馬太福音 10:32‭-‬33   「 我又賜給他們永生;他們永不滅亡,誰也不能從我手裏把他們奪去。 我父把羊賜給我,他比萬有都大,誰也不能從我父手裏把他們奪去。 我與父原為一。」 約翰福音 10:28‭-‬30     「我若不行我父的事,你們就不必信我; 我若行了,你們縱然不信我,也當信這些事,叫你們又知道又明白父在我裏面,我也在父裏面。」 約翰福音 10:37‭-‬38   耶穌說:「我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉着我,沒有人能到父那裏去。」 約翰福音 14:6   2. 只有神有權柄赦免人的罪   耶穌上了船,渡過海 ,來到自己的城裏。 有人用褥子擡着一個癱子到耶穌跟前來。耶穌見他們的信心,就對癱子說:「小子,放心吧!你的罪赦了。」 有幾個文士心裏說:「這個人說僭妄的話了。」 耶穌知道他們的心意,就說:「你們為甚麼心裏懷着惡念呢? 或說『你的罪赦了』,或說『你起來行走』,哪一樣容易呢? 但要叫你們知道,人子在地上有赦罪的權柄」;就對癱子說:「起來!拿你的褥子回家去吧。」 那人就起來,回家去了。 眾人看見都驚奇,就歸榮耀與神,因為他將這樣的權柄賜給人。 馬太福音 9:1‭-‬8   3. 世界未被創造以先耶穌已與天父同在   耶穌說了這話,就舉目望天,說:「父啊,時候到了,願你榮耀你的兒子,使兒子也榮耀你; 正如你曾賜給他權柄管理凡有血氣的,叫他將永生賜給你所賜給他的人。 認識你-獨一的真神,並且認識你所差來的耶穌基督,這就是永生。 我在地上已經榮耀你,你所託付我的事,我已成全了。 父啊,現在求你使我同你享榮耀,就是未有世界以先,我同你所有的榮耀。」 約翰福音 17:1‭-‬5  ...

God kind of Faith 屬神的信心 1

God kind of Faith 1 By Ivan Ho   1 Feb 2019 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1     1. Faith is not self confidence When we talk about the God kind of faith, we are not talking about having self confidence. Unfortunately, people who are full of self confidence don’t usually have the kind of faith spoken of in the Bible. People who are full of self confidence are usually reliant on their own capabilities and powers. They put their confidence on circumstances they can see, things they can touch in the here and now, things that are within their control. Lot of people with self confidence on the outside are actually lacking in faith on the inside. Their confidence comes from external things such as their financial powers, human connections, positions they hold rather than on God.   2. Faith is not religious...

Kingdom of Abundance 2 豐盛的國度 2

Kingdom of Abundance 2 By Ivan Ho     5 Jan 2019 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ” Matthew 4:4 Bread, in another word, food, represents the basic necessity of life that man cannot do without in order to survive. However, Jesus says: “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.”    1. Jesus is the Word. First of all, before we go any further, we need to realise, when Jesus quoted the abovementioned scriptures, He is referring not so much to some ancient written documents, but the active and living Word that comes forth from the mouth of God. In fact, the living Word is Jesus himself, as explained by John the apostle: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with...
