Colossians 1:13

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Wednesday, 06 April 2016

Read: Colossians 1:13

Our salvation is a demonstration of God's matchless, triumphant power. We are now "delivered" from the tyrannical power of Satan and sin by God, the Omnipotent. The Greek word for "delivered" (rhúomai) means "rescued from danger or great peril". If God has not rescued us, we will have remained subjugated forever by satanic tyranny.

We were under "the power of darkness." The word "power" denotes authority or jurisdiction. "Darkness" denotes moral and spiritual ignorance and evil that pervades Satan's domain...

Read: Revelation 20:15

This is a divine declaration about those whom God will cast into the lake of fire, the place of eternal torment. This is certain to happen. Let not the words of the unbelieving ones that God will not cast any one into eternal hell, ever cause us to doubt the certainty of His judgment which is mentioned here so clearly. God will execute the judgment of the unrepentant and the unredeemed just as He has said here...


John 1:14b

Read: John 1:14b

Notice that John did not say "I beheld" but "we beheld." He was incorporating all the apostles and other believing men who were with Christ during His earthly ministry as witnesses of Christ's glory. By appealing to the testimonies of many, John strengthened his claim that Christ is God who came in the flesh.

The Greek word used for "beheld" (theáomai) does not mean simply "to see with physical eye", but to view continually and attentively with contemplation of what is being observed as something unusual in order to interpret it...


Psalms 33:4

Read: Psalms 33:4

The psalmist began this psalm with a call to praise God. Then he proceeded to give reasons why God is to be praised. The first and foremost reason he gave for the praise of God is that "the word of the LORD is right."

God's Word is absolutely right according to God's own perfect rule of right. If any one were to say that the Word of the LORD is not right, then he is making God a liar. According to God's own perfect standard, His Word is right in all that it says...


Matthew 11:28

Read: Matthew 11:28

Herein is a special invitation from the Lord Jesus Christ to those who "labour and are heavy laden." The Greek word for "labour" (kopiao) suggests "working hard to the point of fatigue". It is also a present active participle verb, which indicates those who are in the process of wearing themselves out with toil. The words "heavy laden" translate a present passive participle Greek verb (phortízō) which means "being overloaded". Together the words "labour and are heavy laden" convey the idea of people's weary search for relief from the crushing load of sin and guilt, and all the problems of a sin-laden life...


John 10:11

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Friday, 05 February 2016

Read: John 10:11

Whenever Jesus Christ refers to Himself as the shepherd of His people, He takes ownership of them and undertakes their care on Himself. He is not like the hireling, who does not feel responsibility for the sheep. In fact,  Jesus contemptuously spoke of them in John 10:12 "But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep...
