TEMPTATION COMMON TO MAN

Temptation comes to all men – all categories of men and women, providing such people have reached the age of discerning between good and evil (the age of accountability), and are sane  (1Cor. 10:13). The devil does not respect persons. This accounts for why Jesus Christ Himself (when He was a human) was tempted (Matt. Read more about TEMPTATION COMMON TO MAN[…]

IMITATION OF CHRIST AND THE MINISTER, AND KEEPING OF ORDINANCES

(1Cor. 11:1) As Christians, whether ministers or the flock, we must realize that imitation of such people who had successfully carried on the faith we are now practising is evitable. The apostle Paul repeatedly urged his congregation to imitate him (Acts. 20:35; 1Cor. 4:16; 7:7; Phil 3:17; 4:9; 2Thess. 3:7; 2Tim. 1:13).

WHEN MEN APPEAR AS TREES, WALKING

Today, we are drawing from an event that transpired in the ministry of the Master when a second-touch was needed to bring a situation to perfection.   The Lord Jesus being the express Image of God had the Spirit in fulness – without measure (Heb.1:3; Jn.14:8,9; Jn.3:34) Naturally, it would be expected that since He Read more about WHEN MEN APPEAR AS TREES, WALKING[…]
