Sunday word: Seven plagues of Judgement Day

There is an impending of such a judgement day on the horizon.

Divine insight: How to reign through peace

BY HUMPHREY MTANDWA The words “peace” and “rest” seem closely related although they are different. One cannot achieve rest without peace. The peace of God creates in you an ability to separate between your thoughts and God’s Spirit or voice. When one goes against the will of God for his life, they lose peace. So, […]

Sunday word: Identifying ‘mother of earth’s abominations’

The combination of the beast and the woman riding on it in Revelation 17 could signify nations working in cahoots with some very influential religious organisation. In this instance, the religious entity is said to be flouting God’s laws and indulging in other practices contrary to the Lord. In an effort to narrow in on the identity of this misleading worldwide religious system, let us visit some practices in some Christian churches which go against God’s set commandments.

Hebrew scriptures: The religious significance of Israel

The long journey is nearing its close. The Jordan is almost within sight. We have read the long itinerary of stops along the way. Finally we are reaching the end of the list of encampments, and God tells Moses: “Take possession of the land and settle in it, for I have given you the land to possess” (Num. 33:53). This, according to Nahmanides (to Num. 33:53), is the source of the command to dwell in the land of Israel and inherit it.

Divine insight: The Bible, love and infidelity

Many young men have burned with passion like Amnon and have gone after those they assumed they loved but later when the passion fizzled out in marriage or while they were still in that relationship with, they began to burn for other women and assumed it was love again.

Grace tidings: Does your faith move God or moves you to God?

There are some among us  who believe that faith is something you do to get God to respond. This is a major misconception in the body of Christ. Faith is simply our positive response to what God has already done by grace. He has already given us all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue (2 Peter 1:3).

Sunday word: Mother of harlots and abominations

Revelation 17:4-6 reads of the woman; “The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication; and on her forehead was written a name: “Mystery, Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of earth’s abominations.” And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Jesus (end of quote).

Divine insight: Understanding your dreams

The key symbol in his dreams  was  “numbers”  as an indicator of his brothers. In dream interpretation there are common symbols and interpretors have created directories that allow you to interpret your dreams. Using these directories you can discover the meaning of your dreams. These dream directories are created from experience and scriptures. So when you look at the numbers in Joseph’s dream on the chart in a dream directory and interpret Joseph’s dream directly, you may fail to interpret it correctly.

Hebrew scriptures: Mortality and meaning

To counter that sense of loss and bereavement, the Torah employs one of Judaism’s great principles: The Holy One, blessed be He, creates the remedy before the disease.[1] Before any of the deaths are mentioned we read about the strange ritual of the red heifer, which purified people who had been in contact with death — the archetypal source of impurity. That ritual, often deemed incomprehensible, is in fact deeply symbolic.

Grace tidings: Faith of God: The access code to victorious living

One of the areas about faith that gives people the most trouble is the concept that we have to acquire more faith and that some people have much faith, while others have virtually none. We spend a lot of effort, like a dog chasing its tail, trying to get something we already have. Every born-again Christian already has the same quality and quantity of faith that Jesus has.

Sunday word: Ram and He goat of Daniel 8

Details of prophet Daniel’s vision were as follows (Daniel 8:2-8): “And I saw in the vision; and when I saw, I was in Susa the capital, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in the vision, and I was at the river U’lai. I raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram standing on the bank of the river. It had two horns; and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward; no beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue form his power; he did as he pleased and magnified himself.

Hebrew scriptures: Can we still believe in a soul?

We might then be forgiven for viewing the idea of the soul as an outdated concept that a scientific understanding of the brain has overtaken, which, unlike earlier conceptions, can properly explain all the above states. However, a brief dip into current thinking on the self shows how far we are from reaching such a proper explanation.
