By Grace.. then what is our part?
What is sin? A definition you perhaps never heard before: I had heard a nice sermon of Arthur Meintjes where he explained what sin was. Many of us Christians have a wrong concept of what sin is. We often think of the things we should do or shouldn’t do, or the big things like hatred, adultry, lieing, stealing, etc. But I believe those are the fruit of sin of trusting in the flesh. Just as...

mat5:37 But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. eph4:29 Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but such as is good for edifying as the need may be, that it may give grace to them that hear. Father, thank you that you are always faithful to what you have promised and that you never break a promise. Thank you that there is no...

I was watching a video of Brooke Fraser and I told God she has beautiful lips ^^ & Then I got: “Beautiful are the lips that flow with words of grace.” We feast from the fruit of our lips: prov13:2 NIV From the fruit of his[Jesus] lips a man enjoys good things prov18:21 NIV The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Who is this wise man? He is...

The fight is to rest in the finished work
The fight is to rest in that the work is finished. (heb4:10-12) We’re fighting not to conquer, but to claim what is already ours in Christ. Jesus already conquered death for us. We’re fighting from a place of victory, not defeat. We’re fighting from a place of abundance, not lack. It’s about standing in the victory that Christ already paid for. (gal3:13-14; gal5:1;...

The Ministration of Condemnation
The ministry of death: There is a ministry that establishes people in condemnation & guilt: 2 cor 3:6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. 7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not...
A Guilty Heart
Many Christians are not fighting against the devil, but against the sense of guilt they have in their heart. heb10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Oh, the enemy is attacking me here. But actually it’s the sense of guilt that makes you restless. As long as you...

Spiritual Mirror vs. Physical Mirror
Too often we look in the physical mirror to check how we’re doing, who we are. We look in the mirror, monitor our feelings and emotions (soulish realm) and draw the conclusion that is who we are. You have a spiritual mirror. That shows who you truly are. What is flesh is flesh and Spirit is Spirit. You cannot perceive who you truly are, going by your 5 senses. It’s needs to be...
You are not righteous, because you believe it. You are not saved, because or as long as you believe it. When your belief might be weak at times, it’s not by your faith that you live, but His faith that sustains you. It’s not your grip on Him, but His grip on you. He is faithful, even when we are faithless. 2 tim 2:13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny...

I was with a brother this week and he got a the picture of us having a fountain within us. And as the covers were taken off water was bursting out. Those covers are any lawful demands we place ourselves under. gal5:4 Christ is become of NO effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. You have a fountain of life within (joh4:14) with all the fruits of...
