#SaturdayDevotion: II Kings 17:7-18

Breaking or delighting God's heart II Kings 17:7-18 Date: 31. 10. 2020 In our current sermon series on Kingdom-mindedness, one of the Beatitudes is "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall comforted." It refers to the mourning over sin, a repentant heart, and that the sins that breaks God's heart breaks ours too.   In this text it tells of the condition where this beatitude is totally absent, captured in this words,  ".... (Israel) sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger."   When we cry over our sin, God forgives and comfort us. Can you picture a loving parent comforting a child who has just confess his wrong? With this beatitude we shall find   happiness and blessedness from God.   The opposite, when we become harden to sin, what is the consequence? "Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel, and removed them from His sight; there was none left but the tribe of Judah alone."   God removed them from his

#ThursdayDevotion: Psalm 79

 Date: 29th October 2020 Psalm 79 is about the collapse of society, social, religious and political ruin in ancient Israel. Jerusalem was invaded and destroyed. God’s people were unfaithful and disobeyed God’s laws. Many of us have not experienced such a disaster but one can draw similarities with some areas of our current society. Many brothers and sisters live in fear and have no freedom to worship. The Open Doors website says 260 million Christians are persecuted. No different from the time this Psalm was written, not many people fear God (including Christians), many have disregarded God and His ways. The line between sin and righteousness is blurred. Everyone wants to be politically correct- leave them alone as long as they are happy. Even the most fundamental aspect of what God intended a family to be has redefined. We live in a society where movies and Tv shows use our Lord’s name in vain and some even mock God. As Asaph was facing this trial, he pours out his plea: “Help us, O

#TuesdayDevotion: Hebrews 10:19 – 39

Date: 27 th Oct 2020 Can a Christian lose their salvation? According to this passage, yes. If we turn back to sin, there no longer remains a sacrifice in place that covers our sins (vs 26 – 30, 39). Many cultures and religions understand the need for regular blood sacrifices for forgiveness, protection and so on. But as Christians, this came once in the form of Jesus’ crucifixion and is the only way to receive acceptance, forgiveness, healing, deliverance, everything from God. If we intentionally sin, we need to repent and get right with Him as our sin separates us from God. Romans 11:8 talks of a spirit of stupor that comes upon His people who put their trust in things other than God, and as a result cannot hear His voice. That is scary, because it means we become blind to our conditions. We are exhorted to: ·          Approach God (that’s what a relationship is about, spending time together!) ·          Approach Him with confidence because we have been made clean by what Je

#SaturdayDevotion: Hebrews 9:11 - 28

Date: 24th October 2020 Jesus Made The Perfect Sacrifice To Save Us. Hebrews 9:1-10 describe the rituals and repeated sacrifice of blood that the high priest made every year for himself and for the sins of the people. However, these sacrifices were not able to clear the conscience of the worshiper (v9). They were external regulations that applied until the time of the new covenant. Hebrews 9:11-15 tell us that Christ came as the High Priest who made a perfect sacrifice by shedding his own blood for us in order to cleanse us from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God. Jesus is the new covenant; the new promise of salvation from our sins. Those who are called to Him and who follow Him (and who do not turn their backs to Him), are promised an eternal inheritance, which is eternal life in God’s presence! How awesome is the promise in Hebrews 9:28 that Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to b

#ThursdayDevotion: Psalm 78

  #ThursdayDevotion : Psalm 78 Date: 22.10.2020 This Psalm was written by Asaph. Asaph was both a prophet (1 Chronicles 25:2) and a poet. He was one of King David’s chief musicians and one of the Levites who led the music before the ark in Jerusalem. “O my people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth.” (Psalm 78:1) When Asaph says “Listen to the words of my mouth,” Asaph is talking about an active, eager and responsive listening which results in learning and obedience. How often we listen only what we want to hear, tuning out everything in between. In verse two he tells us “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter hidden things, things from of old.” (Psalm 78:2) he cautions us that if we don’t listen closely, we are going to miss out something. Asaph sets forth the history of Israel as a parable, as a story with a lesson to be learned. The rest of the Psalm recounts the history of Israel — from their going out of Egypt, to their entering of the Promised Land, to the
