The Only Apostle Of Jesus That Died A Natural Death

The early disciples of Jesus Christ went through a lot to ensure that the gospel of Jesus Christ was spread round the world. In order for them to achieve this, they passed through several persecution, challenges and trials.  In all the 12 disciples of Jesus Christ, only one of them died a natural death; others were crucified just like Jesus and some were beheaded. But the only one who died a natural death was John. The same John who was one of the sons of Zebedee, He was also the brother of James and also

Scriptural Warfare Prayers for This Night; Engaging The Covenant of Fruitfulness Through Prayer

Nothing should ever be taken for granted. Life is more spiritual than we think. Ever wondered why Paul told the saints in Ephesus "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." (6:12)? Here's the thing, each and every one of us has to continually engage the force of endless possibilities trapped objectively in the fruitful covenant of prayers. There is

Letter Of Jesus To The Seven Churches and How It Affects Us Today. Number One: The Church At Ephesus

In the Book of Revelation, Jesus spoke through His servant, John to take record of His messages and warnings to all the Churches. And these letters are even more relevant to Christians today, even as we are living in end times. Jesus begins with words of commendation to the Church at Ephesus, citing all the good works they have done. Then He rebukes them for their shortcomings. He afterwards warn them of the consequence of not repenting of their sinful deeds and finally ends with the reward of living overcoming

Before You Sleep Tonight Read This Prayer For God's Divine Protection.

Text: Ephesians 3:14-21 Topic: Spiritual strength comes from prayers Paul knelt down to pray for the church of Ephesus; a culture that we all need to imbibe. This is because it is in God the Father that the entire universe derives its name. Like Paul, our prayer today should be for the Holy Spirit to strength our inner being (v16). When the inner person is strengthened, Christ will dwell in the heart by faith. The dwelling of Christ in the heart develops spiritual roots that establish love for others in a world

Two things we all need to know about grace

Economists say, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Nothing in this world comes for free. Even when we don’t pay and a friend picks up our meal, someone is still paying for it.  Grace works the same way. Now, before you say that I’m wrong because grace is free, don’t forget that grace was not free. It was costly. It cost God His son, and it cost Jesus His life. You Can’t Earn What Is Free What does that mean for us? It means we can’t earn our salvation or buy God's favor. Jesus paid
