Discernment

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
(1 John 4:1)

The Lord Jesus told us that he would be coming back soon.  Do you know how soon?  It is clear in God's Word that we cannot know the exact day or the exact time.  However, looking at what is currently happening in the world today and the signs that God gave us to watch out for, we can confidently see that the time is very near...

We are living in the last days.  Things are being put in place around us more and more rapidly that show us that it is time for us to be awake, prayerfully watch and be prepared (Matthew 24:42).  The enemy knows that he has but a little time left and Jesus warned us that he will try to deceive us (Matthew 24:4-5).

WARNING! God's people perish for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6) and we do not want to be of those who were led astray because 'we did not know!'  Let us not ignore the tactics of the enemy to be ensnared by them.  But let us be aware of the Truth of God's Word that will enable us to defeat the strategies of the enemy.

Saviour But Not Lord

Many people in this world call themselves Christians. Many attend various churches. Many read their Bible and pray, some also fast regularly. Many give financially to the church or various charities. Many are involved in church activities or serve in a ministry through evangelism, helping the poor or using their talents in all sorts of ways for God.

These are all wonderful and commendable things. But what actually defines a Christian? People may call themselves Christian, but what does it mean to be a true Christian, according to the Bible?

The Silent Issue

Recently I was listening to someone preach. They mentioned in their preaching the reasons why - according to them - Jesus had to come to this earth and die. To my astonishment, among the few reasons they stated, sin was nowhere to be found!!! I know they were not being purposefully deceitful, but it shows how much blindness has come upon the church these days. If there is one thing we should never forget, it is from what utter helplessness and misery the Lord rescued us! The sin of mankind is THE reason why Jesus came into this world and died.

The Real Jesus

Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
(Romans 10:13)

"There is no salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."
(Acts 4:12)

There is only one name given by God to save people, and this name is Jesus Christ. There is no other name today, there was no other name yesterday and there will never be any other name tomorrow, anywhere, that can save mankind. No Buddha, no Allah, no Krishna, no Guru of any kind, no one else...

The "Magic" of Witchcraft

Does that sound like a pagan title? It probably does. Unfortunately these days it has become far too easy for children to be introduced to the world of witchcraft. They get access to various forms of the occult - including witchcraft - through the many media in their environment (TV, internet, consoles, music...). Today, we do not have to look for the occult, it is right in front of our eyes (and our children's eyes), whether we like it or not.

TV or not TV?

Today, the television has become a normal daily part of most families' lives, especially in the west. Most people have at least one TV sitting proudly in their living room, while many others have TVs in bedrooms, kitchens and other rooms... When not in school, children can sit in front of the telly for hours on end, spoilt for choice with the huge variety of programs offered to them. For many of them, switching the TV on has become automatic as soon as they get up or when they come back from school each day.
