Read: 1 Corinthians 15:53

Atotal re-making or change of our present earthly body is necessary before we enter heaven, whether by death and resurrection or by being taken up during the Rapture of all the saints who are alive. A great change before we enter heaven is clearly taught in Scripture – "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed...

Read: Matthew 1:21

These words were announced by the angel of the Lord to Joseph, the espoused husband of Mary. Joseph was very troubled in his heart because "before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (v. 18). "Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily"(v. 19). He chose not to create a public scandal by exposing her condition. Instead he decided to divorce her quietly...

Read: Psalms 23:2

The LORD is depicted in Psalm 23 as the Shepherd of His people. Like the shepherd that leads the flock to green pastures and still waters, the LORD lead His people gently to all that nourish and refresh their souls. He is their ever-willing, never-failing Shepherd. He not only knows their need but also adequately and appropriately provides for them. This is why the psalmist assuredly said, "The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want...

Read: Ephesians 6:11

Tclarion call is sounded out to God’s people to be up in spiritual arms for the battle that is being waged against their souls.

Read: Romans 12:9a

The Bible commands us frequently to be sincere and genuine in our love for others, as it is commanded here (cf. 2 Cor. 6:6; 1 Tim. 1:5; 1 Pet. 1:22). "Dissimulation" means "hiding under a false appearance". The words "without dissimulation" is translated from a Greek word anupókritos , which literally means 'not hypocritcal'. In our English Bible, this word has been translated as "unfeigned" (4 times), "without dissimulation" (once), and "without hypocrisy" (once). So Paul is teaching us that our love for one another ought to be...

Read: John 1:1

The apostle John began His Gospel by affirming the divinity of Christ. He introduced Jesus Christ as "the Word". In this Gospel and also in his other writings, John referred to Christ as "the Word"(Jn. 1:1,14; 1 Jn. 1:1; 5:7; Rev. 19:13). According to John 1:14, "the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us"; and this clearly indicates that the Word is Christ, the incarnate or the One who embodied in human form...

Read: Romans 12:15

The church being one, there should be common empathy in sad and joyful experiences of its members. In 1 Corinthians 12:26, Paul said, "And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it." Likewise, in Philippians 2:4, Paul exhorts, "Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others." We must show friendly concern in the good and ill that happens to other persons...

Read: Hebrews 10:19

The believers have some very great privilege and rights as a people whose sins are remitted through the blood of Jesus Christ. One of their great privileges is discussed in the verse for today's meditation; and it is the boldness that they can have to enter into the holiest...

Read: John 6:68b

These were the words of Simon Peter to the Lord Jesus Christ at a time when "many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him"(Jn. 6:66). The Lord Jesus then enquired the twelve, "Will ye also go away?" (Jn. 6:67). It is in answer to that query, Peter with his characteristic fervour and promptness said, "Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life...

Read: James 1:6

To obtain any favour from God, there must be faith in the asker. How can one ask in faith, if he has no faith in God? How can he ask in Christ's name, if he believes not in Him? Hebrews 11:6, "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him...
