In Matthew Chapter 5, we find that Christ tells us to be perfect: Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5:48) When this question is asked in the different denominations, the response usually follows as such: A man cannot be perfect, it is impossible to be perfect while we are in the flesh. But since this is written here, then it is speaking about a "different" aspect…
In 1 John Chapter 1, it is written that God is Light and everyone that has fellowship with Him walks in the Light. Therefore, if one claims to know God yet remains in the darkness - he is a liar. To speak of yourself that you have fellowship with Him, while you walk in the darkness, means to represent God as a liar! If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar,…

Sometimes the storm can be inside,
Tough situations come like a flood.
And different troubles try to bite!
Where is my peace? Where is my trust?
And if the storm is around us,
I have my peace, I have my trust!
And I am saved by Holy blood,
I am Your child, You are my God!
I found a well of Living water, it’s pure and clear, it cleans the soul.
With happiness my heart will quiver, to spread the word, to tell the world!
There are two worlds, two universes. This world, the fashion of which is passing away. And the unwavering Kingdom of God, which is ready to be revealed (1 Peter 1:3-5), and which will stand forever!
A world to come or a Universe to come – is the goal of a believer! There is no greater purpose for a person than to attain life in the Heavenly Kingdom that is to come! There is nothing greater than this in your earthly life! This is a goal above all goals, and if you do not reach this goal, then it is simply terrible and scary to think of what is awaiting!
“How much more shall the blood of Christ… purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?” (Hebrews 9:14)
What are these dead works that are in the conscience of man? They are the remnants of un-enlightenment, remnants of misunderstanding. However, the cleansing from dead deeds DOES NOT mean that the person continues to sin! He lives a life in faith, a renewed life in Jesus Christ in him.
Let us use an example here. A man is drowning in a swamp, the dirty water is pulling him deeper and deeper in, and soon he will drown! Someone extends a hand and pulls him out, unto the dry ground and saves him. Does this person have a reason and a right to thank his savior? Of course he does, he almost drowned, died, but now is saved even though the dirty swamp still soaks his clothes and is dripping from him! This example is used to show a person who has come to faith.
Illusions - they are all around us, on television, on social media, in photography, etc. But it is easier to see the illusions around us rather than the illusions in us. Are you living by an illusion? Are you day dreaming? The first illusion was in the Garden of Eden - a lie that the serpent first fed to Eve. Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made.…
