Description: The Ephesians were intolerant and haters… and for that, Jesus praised them.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shares with us that in Christ’s letter to the church of Ephesus, He, indeed, did praise them for their intolerance to evil and hating the things He hates.
But most of us don’t consider intolerance a virtue, nor think that there would be something that Jesus actually hates… let alone, wants us to hate too. But that’s exactly what we read.
And in the midst of this, we are told to love.
Sound contradictory? Not at all.
Let’s love the things that God loves and hate the things that God hates… and in so doing, know what it is like to walk in Truth.
Description: Jude gets to the point in his letter right away. While planning to write a letter about their shared salvation, Jude changes his mind when he hears about the false teachers that have crept into this congregation. He now feels compelled to write a letter urging these believers to contend for the faith which was once for all delivered.
Description: Although it may sound strange to read about peace when we are being equipped for war, it is not strange at all. War and peace are always two sides of the same coin, and when you are at war with one party it usually means that you have established peace with another. We are warring against the devil because we have experienced peace with God. We need to remind ourselves of this peace with God: that Christ has purchased and firmly planted our feet into it so that we will be able to stand firm.
Description: To be a Christian Mother is a high, holy and crucial calling. It is the highest calling any Christian woman can enter. We must never underestimate the power of God working through a mother to achieve His purposes.
Description: John, in chapter 2 tells us by the works of Christ Jesus, His deeds, that He indeed is God. To confirm this, John gives eight different sign miracles. All of these eight miracles are different, no two are alike. The first miracle that John presents is the miracle that takes place at a wedding in Cana.
Description: A man goes out to baptize and preach the coming of the Lord. He was asked, “Who are you?” John the Baptist proved to be that voice whose obedience in faith, and persecution for the Lord was indeed in the spirit and power of Elijah. He was the road builder laying the path for the Lord.
