Balm Of Gilead

A balm is an ‘oil’ obtained from certain types of trees, having a pleasant smell and used in healing or reducing pain (Chambers 21st Century Dictionary). Thus, balms are usually used for healing purposes. The most common of all balms is the lip balm. In this note, I want to look at the balm of... Continue Reading →

About The Fallen

In this note, I want to consider a topic that few dread because there is little information on them. Have you heard of ‘fallen angels’, those angels who could not keep their first estate because they rebelled against God? Well fallen angels are called so because they fell from grace. They were once holy and... Continue Reading →

Entering The Promised Land

We learn that the Israelites could not enter into the promised land because of their unbelief. And we are warned that we Christians too may not enter into the promised rest if we follow in the same example of unbelief. The promised land was the land promised to the descendants of Abraham, whom God made... Continue Reading →

Dying In Your Sins

The worst thing you can do to yourself is to die not repenting from your sins. The wages of sin is death and sometimes, I think that God has patience with us so we don’t perish in our sins. He does not delight in the death of the wicked or evil man, but wishes that... Continue Reading →

Well in this note, I will show you how to live at peace with others. Because of the discomfort you cause people, they tell... Continue Reading →

Cursed Friend

There was this man who seemed to be a likeable man, respectful, gentle and obedient. But unfortunately for him, everyone around him seemed to be the opposite, as though he was surrounded by enemies. It seemed this man was cursed, to be in a generation of sinners, or rather, his friends were cursed who could... Continue Reading →

Love Infinite

“We love Him because he first loved us” are the words the apostle proclaimed when he spoke of the perfect love. Our love is perfected or becomes complete when we reciprocate the love that God has towards us through Christ. Our love is infinite because like God, we dwell in Him and His love dwells...

Becoming An Overcomer

We are all born to overcome, because we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ. As children of God, we are supposed and expected to be overcomers, because Jesus Christ overcame for us. If you want to be in – or go to – heaven, then you would have to overcome your flesh and sin... Continue Reading →
