CINTA MULA-MULA

RENUNGAN : Wahyu 2 : 1-7 Kedatangan Tuhan sudah sangat singkat. Tanda-tanda jaman yang tertulis di dalam Matius 24 sedang terjadi hari-hari ini. Kita sebagai gereja Tuhan perlu berjaga-jaga, sebab Tuhan akan datang setiap waktu.  Yang pertama dan yang paling penting yang harus kita jaga adalah kasih mula-mula kepada Tuhan, apakah masih tetap menyala di…

Rapture of the Church

Rapture is a future event that is prophesied in the Bible – when Jesus returns to take His Church. Rapture is not a one-time event. It has happened in a few instances in the Bible: the rapture of Enoch (Genesis 5:24). Elijah (2 Kings 2:1,11) and the ascension of Jesus to heaven after His resurrection…

God’s Timing

Deuteronomy 6:24: “..so that we might always prosper and be kept alive“  The verse above shows that God is the one who blesses us. Every effort will be in vain if it is not blessed by the Lord. We believe these days the Lord wants to restore the lives of His children and bless them…

Be Diligent in Hope

“ Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.” Hebrew 10:23 A believer will face difficult times in his or her life. The situation and condition of this world will worsen in the end times – increased evil, decline of moral standards, financial difficulties, less happiness and an increase in false…

FROM GRACE TO GRACE

I READ: John 1:1-18 God’s grace will continue to follow us no matter what our current life situation is.  In John 1:16, we are being reminded that we are living from grace to grace. We believe that when we are at our low point in our life, God’s grace will flow generously.  Our low points…

A Powerful Word

“…All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness…” 2 Timothy 3:15-17 From the seven churches in Revelation 2-3, there are two that the Lord praises without blame: Smyrna and Philadelphia. The Lord gave them great rewards because they obeyed His Word. Reading, meditating and doing God’s…
