Following Jesus, On His Terms, Pastor Boaz Olang

Posted on Updated on

Luke 9:23, “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me”

Receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the first step to salvation and gateway to God’s kingdom and to the blessings promised in His Word, the Bible. Above and beyond that, Christians are called to a daily walk with Jesus in order for them to receive the abundant life Jesus came to give(John 10:10), live victorious life, do the will of God here on earth and finally, reach heaven, where we shall live in glory with Jesus forever.

Friends Indeed, Part 2of2, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on

1Kings 3:16-28, “So the king answered and said, “Give the first woman the living child, and by no means kill him; she is his mother”

1Kings 3:26, “Then the woman whose son was living spoke to the king, for she yearned with compassion for her son; and she said, “O my lord, give her the living child, and by no means kill him”. We looked at two friends with babies and David and Jonathan. We saw how one of the women was deceiving herself trying to live a life of her friend while Jonathan is out to do everything to protect his friend destined to take his position as king. A good friend will have your back, will care for you no matter what comes in your life that puts you in a higher position than them. A friend who will speak truth in love for he cares so much about your wellbeing. Read the rest of this entry »

1Kings 3:16-28, “So the king answered and said, “Give the first woman the living child, and by no means kill him; she is his mother”

Friendships can be broken over different things in life. I’ve seen some broken over relationships, positions, and gifting etc. Good friends, I mean really good friends end their friendships over things that shouldn’t, things that don’t matter.

We meet two friends who came to king Solomon for judgment. It seems as if they were in the same level, both were prostitutes living in the same house. They must have been good friends to live together. They had a lot of things in common; same occupation (if I may call it that), both gave birth to babies three days apart, both were nurturing babies dear to them, the only thing (person) they can call their own. The bible gives details of these two women who are almost equal in all things. What really keeps two good friends together is it what they have or who they are to each other.

From Knowing About Christ To Knowing Christ, Evans Olang

Philippians 3:10, “that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death”

I don’t like being referred to as a religious person simply because when we are saved, we are not led to religion but to Christ. That is why we are called Christians. Being referred to as a Christians has also been messed up and soiled by many people and I’m not surprised. Correct me if I am wrong, “a Christian” means “Christ like” which is manifesting the qualities or spirit of Jesus Christ. The word “manifest” is to show, display or demonstrate plainly. If that is the case, your confession of being a Christian has to be accompanied by a demonstration of its definition. It’s amazing to me how people can run around calling themselves Christians but have no Christ like qualities being demonstrated in their lives. Read the rest of this entry »

Fill Me To Over Flow, Evans Olang

Psalm 42:1-6, “As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God”

One can only move because there is a reason for the move. The psalmist gives us a picture of what his hunger and thirst is like. I don’t know much about the deer’s but I believe that when they are thirsty for water, they run to find a place to drink water and they stick there until they are filled. Anyone who is not thirsty will not run around looking for water and anyone who is not hungry will also not run around looking for food. Praise be to God that we are in a place where our souls can pant after God because we haven’t had enough of Him. Read the rest of this entry »

Mighty In God, Evans Olang

2Corinthians 10:3-5, “3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ”

When we hear of spiritual warfare, we immediately think of battling spiritual demonic forces attacking our health, our finances, our families etc. In studying this verse, the spiritual warfare is much much greater than that. If anything, it’s the battle to stay steadfast on what God has revealed in His word and refute those who contradict it.

A Christless Pentecost, Part 6of6, David Wilkerson Inspired by Frank Bartleman

Posted on Updated on

Colossians 1:18-19, “And He is the head of the body, the Church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the pre-eminence. For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell… ” (KJV)

The conclusion will be long but worth it.

III. Christ Is Made A Stranger In Our Midst When We Want His Power More Than His Purity!

Reader Harris, an Englishman and director of The Pentecostal League of Prayer, once challenged a congregation on this matter of power and purity. He said, “Those who want power, line up to my right. Those who want purity, line up to my left.” The congregation lined up 10 to 1 – for POWER! Read the rest of this entry »
