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

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...


John 11:25b

Read: John 11:25b

Oh, with what great authority Christ spoke those words! Take note that He said “I am”, and not “I will be”. No human being could speak in such a manner, except the One who came down from heaven. Those are the words of the self-existing God, the Great “I AM”. He alone has the power to give life and to bring one back from death unto life...


Ephesians 4:27

Read: Ephesians 4:27

The devil always attempts to influence and control Christians. He wants us to rebel against our Saviour and His people. So he strives to overpower and use us for his evil purposes. He is a wily character. If he could, he would use us to bring dishonour and shame to the Lord’s name and to disrupt the peace and effectiveness of the church.

He always looks for opportunities that he can take advantage of. He first studies our infirmities, temperaments, desires, ambitions, propensities, etc.; he then plans his move to assault us. He is a determined enemy....


Revelation 20:14

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...


John 14:6b

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Saturday, 07 October 2017

Read: John 14:6b

These words were spoken by Christ as the answer to Thomas’ question, “Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?” (John 14:5). Thomas raised that question upon Jesus’ statement that He was going to prepare a place for them in His Father’s house, and that He would come again and receive them to be with Him where He would be. Thus Jesus, with these words, intended to drive away any doubt in the disciples’ minds as to how one could get to the Father in heaven...


1 Peter 5:8

Read: 1 Peter 5:8

Sobriety and vigilance are crucial to living a victorious Christian life. The Greek word for “sober” (nēphō) means being temperate or abstinent, especially in respect to wine. It is an antonym for the state of mind caused by drunkenness and is used more broadly to refer to spiritual and moral sobriety, a clear-thinking and self-controlled mental state that is free from confusion and unbridled passions. The Greek word for “vigilance” (grēgoreō) refers to alertness and watchfulness...


1 Corinthians 10:31

Read: 1 Corinthians 10:31

T

he chief purpose for which God’s people should live is God’s glory. It is also the chief rule by which they decide what they should do. They should do only that which will honour God.

To act for the glory of God is to act so that His glory is acknowledged, admired and accomplished. Whatever is done to advance the glory of God is right; whatever is done without the purpose of His glory is wrong...

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Wednesday, 04 October 2017

Read: John 10:14

The Lord Jesus Christ, for the second time in John 10, refers to Himself as “the good shepherd”. It is His joy to repeatedly affirm that He is “the good shepherd” of His people, the church. He is also referred to as the “great shepherd” (Hebrews 13:20), and “the chief shepherd” (1 Peter 5:4).

The church, the body of believers, is tenderly attended to by the Lord Jesus Christ. He guides the church through His voice in the Scriptures. All Scriptural commandments, promises, rebukes, corrections, instructions, doctrines are for their protection and guidance...


James 4:10

Written by Rev (Dr) Prabhudas Koshy Tuesday, 03 October 2017

Read: James 4:10

The call to humble ourselves follows James’ admonition in the previous verse to mourn and weep before the Lord for our sins. “Be afflicted,” James 4:9 says, “and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.” When we stand in the presence of the Lord, let us humbly acknowledge our unworthiness to come before Him because of our many sins. Let us humbly admit that we have no merit of our own to be granted access to His holy presence...
