God is like the Sun burning bright and full of limitless power. That light and power radiates out in all directions.
The moon is like Christ. The moon itself has no light. But when in the presence of the Sun, light reflects off of it onto the Earth.
From the Earth it looks like the moon is producing light but what it really is doing is reflecting light from the Sun. And it’s just a small fraction of the total output of light from the sun. But it can light the entire facing surface of the earth!
When that “moon light” shines on you, your gift of holy spirit is like a mirror to that light so you can reflect it. So the more manifestations of the gift that you use the bigger the mirror becomes. Then with a bigger mirror the more you reflect.
It is our job to reflect the light of Christ that is a reflection of the light from God.
Do we give the moon glory because it reflects the light of the Sun? No. We give the sun glory for lighting up the moon to then shine down on us.
That’s the way it works.
God desires that all of us come to a fullness of the knowledge of His word and power. So when you ask God questions it is up to you to first to search the scriptures for answers.
We should search the scriptures for answers because God has preemptively answered every question about general life and Godliness that you can ever possibly think of.
If you have a question about a person or a specific situation that is not already answered in the bible then you can do these two things: Continue reading How to Ask God Questions and Get Answers

God loves you very much. Each and every born again Christian is a child of God.
Why wouldn’t he love us? If God provides for all his creation with that which each individual needs to survive, then why would he not do the same for His own beloved children? He would bestow even more upon His own children, right? And so He has. Continue reading God Loves You Very Much
“Fruits” of the Spirit is a metaphor that sums up the nine visible attributes of living a Christian lifestyle according to the Holy Spirit.
Technically “fruits” plural should be called “fruit” singular. Because The Gift of Holy Spirit is like a tree that bears spiritual fruit in your life.
So when you plant it in your heart, it takes root. When you nurture it, it grows and bear fruit. It bears one fruit of the spirit, not many “fruits”. It’s like a grape vine (singular) that grows many grapes (plural).
Jesus said in Matthew 7:20 “Wherefore by their fruit you shall know them.” What kind of fruit are you growing?
Let’s look at each attribute of the fruit of the spirit a little more deeply. Below is a list of spiritual fruit that is the evidence of a good Christian lifestyle. Continue reading Fruits of the Spirit Bible Study Galatians 5:22
Acts 2:4 “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
What is Speaking in Tongues?
The Greek word is Glosselaleo; the direct translation literally meaning, “language-speaking”. Tongue is just another word for language. It’s like saying I went to another country and learned to speak in a foreign tongue. So speaking in tongues simply means speaking in a foreign language.
Speaking in tongues is physical proof that a Christian is born again. Speaking in tongues is external, tangible evidence in the senses realm that the internal, intangible gift of holy spirit is inside you.
Turn your bible to Acts 2:4 – This is the day of Pentecost, the birth of our church and the beginning of the grace administration, “And they were all filled with the holy ghost (a more accurate translation of the word “ghost” is the Greek word pnuema, which means “spirit”) and began to speak with other tongues as the spirit gave them utterance.”
So they got holy spirit and immediately they all spoke in tongues. Not just some of them. All of them. Continue reading What is Speaking in Tongues?

Concerning the gift of holy spirit, God gave us a spirit of “Truth” and of “Power” not a spirit of bondage. Sickness is a form of bondage and I for one will not tolerate that in the life of my dear brethren in Christ. Allow me to explain:
