When you compare the righteous with the wicked, the wicked come to heaven’s door knocking expecting to come into heaven thinking the door should be open for them. The righteous look to heaven and long to enter in but in heaven no evil thing may enter yet the Lord says to the righteous, those who look to heaven conscious of their condition; “Come in.” The person may say, “Lord, no sin can enter into heaven. You are calling me to come in but as far as I understand nothing bad can go into heaven.” The Lord says, “Yes, I know that so come in.” Read the rest of this entry
Whenever you have an open door, it’s an indication to come through. Someone opens the door for you, then you go through.
Genesis 5:21-24 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he [was] not; for God took him.
One thing we must bear in mind in our Christian walk is that we are going somewhere. Sometimes we can feel that all through our life we are just wandering around in circles. I find it extremely difficult to go walking around in a circle for exercise. If I had to go and get the bread in the morning from a shop or I had to go and visit someone and I had to walk, I can do that, but just to walk in a circle and come back I find quite challenging. When there is a purpose in view, when there is an object in sight then the walking doesn’t seem to be so taxing.
When we walk with God, we are going somewhere
As Enoch walked with God, he arrived at the place where they were going. When you have been traveling for a long time with the hope of being somewhere and the anticipation of the great time you will have when you arrive, you can persevere through getting up early, packing your gear and travel. When you get there, there is a sense of relief. Enoch was on this dark planet for three hundred years. Read the rest of this entry

We know the experience of Jacob. This is the testing time to see what God’s people are made of. Fire reveals the condition of the building. If it’s made from precious stone it will stand, if it’s made of wood, hay and stubble it will be gone. There is something else we need to know in these last days and that is, God protects His own.

Jesus is coming. The interesting thing about Jesus coming is that it will be the happiest day for some people and the worst day for others. Which would you like it to be? We want it to be the happiest. It doesn’t come by chance, it doesn’t just happen. There is a cause to every affect and if we desire for it to be a happy day, then we need to bring into consideration and into our minds eye, the requirement or the pre-requisites that are needed in order to make it a happy day. The time of Jacobs’s trouble is the test. A judgement in itself to judge what things are made from. As we go through the investigative judgement and the opening of the sins of Gods people beforehand, this is for the purpose that we would make sure that the material that is used to build our characters is able to withstand fervent heat. It has to be precious metal employed into the building of one’s character.
You are and I am a whole lot of decisions we have made in the past. What you have done when you were a child and teenager has impacted on who you are today. Does that make sense? Have you made the most important decision of your life? The first study I shared in this series ‘The gospel In Genesis’ was ‘A Chance to Choose’. The devil doesn’t give his people a chance to choose. Oppression and dictatorship doesn’t but God does. God gives His people freedom to choose life or death. That decision that we are to all make will make us somebody.
We are based upon our decisions in the past. We have to understand that we ourselves, are progressive. Character is progressive, it never stops. It is like time or the tide, you can never stop your character development, you can’t stop it. If you lie in bed all your life, your character will be built according to that decision. You can’t stop it. You can’t choose not to make a choice. In fact if you choose not to choose, you have made a choice already not to choose. But sometimes as Christians, do you ever wonder whether you are the Lords? Do you ever think, has the Lord received me? Do I belong to God? Have I chosen Him? Read the rest of this entry
The best repairer is the manufacturer. In mechanics that’s a fact, whoever built the car is the best person to fix the car. We all need repairing. The whole world needs repairing and the best one to do that is the person who created it, the manufacturer of this planet. He can fix us. When we dwell upon the power of our God, really, is there any excuse, any reason for stress? When the Israelites came before the Red Sea, do you think they were a little stressed? Perhaps a bit more than a little, I think they were very stressed.
Here is this big mass of water and it posed big issues considering the situation behind them and the situation beside them; big mountains, black Pharaoh coming after them and this water mass in front of them. If they considered that in the creation God divided the waters from the waters, they would understand that this little puddle of water before them was nothing that was beyond the capabilities of God. God can separate the waters. The Bible records that God sent a wind. That word ‘wind’ translates as spirit. When Noah was on the ark and the water was everywhere, it says that the Lord sent the wind and it dealt with the water. Read the rest of this entry
The Bible tells us that we should always ask for the old paths.
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where [is] the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk [therein]. Jeremiah 6:16
We are admonished to ask our fathers and elders.
Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will show thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee. Deuteronomy 32: 7
If I have to ask my father, then how did my father know? He had to ask his father and so on. If we follow this principle that the Bible lays out, we end up having to ask Adam. What’s happening, what is the right way? Read the rest of this entry
We are acquainted with God and we want to believe him. I discovered my sinfulness when I was young and it made me think the Lord had forsaken me but He showed me He hadn’t, He said I’m still here. I saw my mistakes and said, now I’m up to my neck in my overwhelming senses of my sin. In this condition the Lord drew near to me and said look up, I am still here. We want to gather together often to remember how personal God is with us. Jesus makes us free through His Word, not magic. The centurion said to the Lord, speak only and my servant shall be healed. It was an overwhelming experience the power of the Word.
