Five Basic Principles of Genuine Intercession Before God as Seen in Genesis 18

Five Basic Principles of Intercession (as seen in Genesis 18)

God desires to do many things today, and His heart is to save many people, rescue the back-slidden ones, carry out His economy, and accomplish His purpose. However, due to the lack of intercessors God is limited in what He can do. Today God is looking for intercessors, those who know God’s heart, are intimate [...]

Lingering in God’s Presence to See what’s on His Heart and Responding by Interceding

Gen. 18:17 And Jehovah said, Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do?

What was the reason for which God came in a human form to visit Abraham, his friend? Was it merely to assure him that him and Sarah will have a son a year from then, at the time of life? After Abraham and his guests had something to eat and drink, he accompanied them on [...]

In our Fellowship with God we See that Christ will be Brought forth and Sin is Judged

In our Fellowship with God we See that Christ will be Brought forth and Sin is Judged. Gen. 18:14 Is anything too marvelous for Jehovah? At the appointed time I will return to you, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

In Genesis 18 we see that God came in the form of a man to visit Abraham His friend, and they had a good time together. Abraham fed his guests, brought them into the tent in the shade, and took care of them. In their conversation we cannot see any trace of Abraham fearing God [...]

Living in Intimate Fellowship with God Today to be the Friend of God as Abraham was

We need to Live in Intimate Fellowship with God and Live a Crucified Life to be the Friend of God (as Abraham was)

The New Jerusalem, the New Covenant of Grace, is the Mother of the Believers

The New Jerusalem, the New Covenant of Grace, is the Mother of the Believers. Heb. 12:22-23 But you have come forward to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem...and to the church of the firstborn

With the help of Paul’s writing in his epistles to the Galatians and to the Hebrews we see that Sarah and Hagar both signify two covenants: Sarah signifies the covenant of grace and Hagar signifies the covenant of law. Each of them produces sons: Sarah produces sons unto freedom and inheritance of grace, and Hagar [...]

Being under God’s Covenant of Grace, we should Enjoy God by Exercising our Spirit

Being under God's Covenant of Grace, we should Enjoy God by Exercising our Spirit "The law is a matter of man's labor with man's ability to produce something, whereas grace is God given to His chosen people to produce the many sons" (The Conclusion of the New Testament, p. 2670)

The experience of our father Abraham is very much related to our experience, and the things he learned in his experience with God are the things we should learn as well. In the book of Galatians we see how the Galatian believers received the gospel through the apostle Paul and his co-workers, believed into Christ, [...]

Seeing what the Flesh is and Living a Crucified Life by Calling on the Lord’s Name

We need to See what the Flesh is and Live a Crucified Life by Calling on the Name of the Lord

In Genesis 15 God made a covenant with Abraham; on His side, God was faithful to the covenant, but on Abraham’s side, he was not because he used his natural strength to produce Ishmael. Therefore, God came in in Genesis 17, thirteen years after He appeared last to Abraham, and He confirmed the covenant with [...]
