Read: 1 Thessalonians 5:17

What is prayer? Prayer is the reverential, worshipful communication of a genuine believer with God. It allows him to affirm his faith and confidence in the Triune God, to give thanks for the blessings received, to confess his sins, to consecrate his life to do the divine will concerning him and serve Him, to submit his petitions and pleadings for divine help in his needs and trials, etc. Prayer opens the door for him to flee from temptations and trials into the refuge of God’s glorious presence...

Read: Romans 10:16

The faithful, clear preaching of the Gospel will not necessarily result in its acceptance by the hearers. Even though a biblically sound message is preached by a godly, faithful preacher whom God has appointed, Scripture reminds us that hearers could still reject it.

The apostle Paul says without any hesitation, “But they have not all obeyed the gospel.” In Acts 28:24, concerning the response of the Jews who came to hear Paul expound the Old Testament Scriptures concerning the kingdom of God, Luke reported...

Read: Exodus 18:11

These are the words of Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, when he arrived in the camp of the Israelites. Jethro was the priest of Midian, a heathen nation. However, he must have surely heard in the past from Moses about the LORD God of Israel. Now, having listened to the news of the LORD’s great deliverance of Israel out of Egypt, Jethro had come to see for himself what the LORD had done for Moses and His people, Israel. Upon his arrival, Moses greeted him and invited him into his tent and “told his father in law all that the LORD had done unto Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel’s sake...


Psalm 16:5

Read: Psalm 16:5

After denouncing those who seek after other gods in the previous verse, David declares that “The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup”. Unlike those who wander away from the LORD, seeking the idols of this world, his heart is joyfully settled in the LORD. This is the reason why he separates himself from the idolatrous pursuits of other men...


Romans 8:1

Read: Romans 8:1

The Christian’s freedom from condemnation is declared here – “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus” (v. 1a).

The phrase, “There is therefore”, refers us back to the previous chapter, where the Christian’s spiritual struggles against the flesh are discussed. However, it ended with a great shout of victory and joy – “I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin...


Proverbs 1:10

Read: Proverbs 1:10

This is a very necessary fatherly advice to all young people against the lure of sinners. With tenderness and gravity of heart, the young person is addressed: “My son”. It is vital that parents and those who minister to young people maintain an affectionate and yet vigilant spirit, to offer them timely advice that would guard them against the lure of sinners...


2 Thessalonians 3:3

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Tuesday, 17 October 2017

Read: 2 Thessalonians 3:3

The certainty of our ultimate salvation is grounded in God’s faithfulness. The Lord is faithful to all His promises that He has made. The Lord cannot lie (Numbers 23:19). Neither will He alter nor fail to perform that which is gone out of His mouth.

Men may be faithless and turn out to be untrue, but not God. Though many (who are church members) may abandon their sacred and solemn vows and show no fidelity to the cause of Christ, God will never desert His great purpose on which He has set His heart and pledged His Word...


Psalm 10:16

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Thursday, 12 October 2017

Read: Psalm 10:16

The whole of Psalm 10 is an appeal to the LORD to intervene and deliver His afflicted people from their enemy, who is characterised as a proud boaster who persecuted the poor, showed no fear of God and lived an openly defiant and fraudulent life. The psalmist calls on the LORD to punish the wicked in verses 12-15, praises the LORD’s greatness in verse 16, and closes the psalm in verses 17-18 by expressing his confidence in the LORD’s willingness to rescue the helpless...


Revelation 20:15

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Wednesday, 11 October 2017

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 strident voices of the unbelieving ones – that God will not cast anyone into eternal hell – ever cause us to doubt the certainty of His judgment, which is mentioned so clearly here. God will execute the judgment of the unrepentant and the unredeemed, just as He has said here...


Revelation 20:14

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Sunday, 08 October 2017

Read: Revelation 20:14

This is a description of what follows the great white throne judgment. All the wicked dead shall be brought to life again and be judged according to their works by the Lord who sits upon the Throne. According to the previous verse, Revelation 20:13, “the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.” The mention of “the sea” giving up its dead makes it clear that regardless of how far a body has disintegrated...
