Six times in the Church Epistles, God exclaims that He does not want us ignorant. The general context of when He uses this emphatic statement is about evils which beset people and the information that follows is to prevent us from falling into the evils associated of ignorance. In this teaching, we examine these six topics which, as Christians, we should endeavor to comprehend more fully.

When a man (or woman) becomes born again, a great change can take place in their lives. Living as a born-again one comes with a lot of great realities beyond salvation and redemption that we can live and manifest now, in our daily lives. God gave us holy spirit to have an unbreakable relationship with Him and to reconcile more people to His kingdom. In this we have all the tools and help from our Father to accomplish His great work and live in His calling.

Vision for the modern Christian Church

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

January 20, 2009

Acts 19 declares the wonderful movement of the Word of God in the early first century church. With a beginning of around a dozen believers the Word ends up reaching all ears in Asia, a remarkable feat and a testimate to the power and truth of God’s word. It is only thus that this chapter should serve as a modern text book on how we can grow the Church mightly. When we receive the Word we must speak it boldly and not be discuraged when people do not believe and not be surprised when people do! When we speak the word, signs will follow and all will be to the glory of God. We must also check our own hearts to see if there is anything standing in the way of having a burning relationship with the Lord. When we do these things it is possible that the Word of God will grow mightly and prevail.

Titus 1

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

In this first installment in our teaching segment on Titus we begin to examine an overall theme in the book: truth matches with godliness and sound doctrine goes hand in hand with good works.

Titus was a young minister whom Paul wrote this epistle (letter) to in approximately 63 A.D. while Titus was on the Island of Crete. In it we see Paul’s heart toward Titus, what credentials a church leader must possess and a strong endorsement to be a Bible centric people. Although at times stern, an understanding of Titus 1 is a strong foundation for those who want to serve God in the Church.

Titus 1:1-2
John 17:3
Titus 1:3
I Corinthians 1:21 – preaching of Word seems foolish to unbelievers
Titus 1:4-7
I Corinthians 4:1-2 – stewards must be faithful
Titus 1:8-9
II Samuel 23:9-10 – Eleazar: a picture of someone clinging to “The Sword” (also see Ephesians 6:17).
Titus 1:10-15
Romans 16:19 – be wise in good and simple in evil.
Titus 1:16
Matthew 7:1,16 – (”Judge” in Greek: “krinō”)
Mathew 12:46-50 – we want our identification to be a believer.
