The Conflict of Two Natures

“Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Matthew 26:41) I read this passage this morning in the context of the Lord’s Prayer to the Father at Gethsemane. When I read it the Lord revealed something to me that I had understood but not fully grasped. I am born again! I understood that prior to this, but did not fully grasp the context of what that means. Needless to say this has been a wonderful day of revelation from the Lord. Jesus said to the Pharisee Nicodemus; "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God……"unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” (John 3:3,5-6) According to Ephesians 2:2-3 there are these three: 1. The world 2. The spirit 3. The flesh Jesus said, “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh pr

What is Sin

What Is Sin? Lawlessness - That is doing what you know to be wrong.  (1 John 3:4) "Everyone who practices sin also practices lawlessness; and sin is lawlessness." Passiveness - That is knowing the right thing to do and not doing it.  (James 4:17) "Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin." Faithlessness - That is anything done without faith in God.  (Romans 14:23) "But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and whatever is not from faith is sin." Jesus never did what He knew to be wrong, always did what He knew to be right, and everything He did through faith in God.  " Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us." (Romans 8:34) For the glory of God alone, Mike Peek a slave of Jesus Christ

The Incomprehensible Jesus

It is incomprehensible as a creature himself being bound by time, space, and matter; too comprehend our Creator and Lord Jesus, the Devine Being Who upholds all things by the word of His power, neither Himself bound by time, nor space, nor matter. Who made Himself subject to His own creation, becoming a Man, walking amongst us, tasting death on our behalf so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. John 1:1-5 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it." Colossians 1:16-17 "For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities— all things have been created through Him

What Is a Christian?

A Christian is a person who puts their faith in Christ Jesus alone for the forgiveness of their sins. “So Jesus said to them again, "Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.” (John 10:7-11) “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.” (John 10:27-28) “Jesus said to her, " I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25-26) “Jesus *said
