The Amazing Jonah – Door of Hope Church

Jonah is one the most well-known stories in the Bible, and the least understood! This story of God’s thick-headed and small-minded prophet levels a challenge to every generation of God’s people who are prone to hypocrisy and spiritual apathy. As Jonah runs from God and hides behind his religious piety, God’s wide mercy softens the hearts of the most unexpected people. This is a story meant to shake us awake to the surprising ways God works in our world, and in our own lives. When God Loves Your Enemy from Door of Hope on Vimeo. Thrones and Ashes from Door

Dynamics of Spiritual Growth

Although spiritual hunger and need are prime prerequisite for light and understanding, The Holy Spirit will never give forth its precious treasure of spiritual truth without any deep experience and at no cost either. The Holy Spirit does not reveal the truth for deeper life without us meaning business with Jesus. The modern teaching of consecration, which is tantamount to the consecration of the “old man” seeks to bypass the death to self, and thus leads to frustration and failure. The inners struggle to be good for Jesus is actually inversely contradictory to the works of the Holy Spirit. When

Create in me a clean heart

In our prayer, we need the Lord to intervene, in streams of faithful resources, love us not as we love you Lord, help us, although we have tempted you; with indiscipline measures we have deprived the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. But In the twilight of this dispensation, the aspect of fear continues to incite our heart to bewilderment. Although the conscience cannot set the errors of the heart right, it leaves a scar of vexation. Much activities in our hearts is hidden from the public eye, and correction is found through our own meditation, by owning up and admitting

Powerful Faith of Little Children: My daughter’s Prayers Answered

It is almost very miraculous that God would answer the prayer of little children. Little children prayed very simple prayers out of their pure heart. They meant everything they say and God answers them instantly. Many times God uses us as Christians to answer prayers. It is an universal truth to say that God uses his sons and daughters to answer the prayers of many others in need. Now, why would I say such things unless I say them with a strong conviction? Unless we begin to respond to the prompting in our hearts, we would never truly understand the

How to Forgive Someone and Remember the Pain No More

“You will know that forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and feel the power to wish them well.” Lewis B. Smedes. To some people, learning how to forgive someone is one thing and to forget is another thing. But the truth is that when you actually forgive, and you remember the incidence later, it will be with no pain/hurt attached. Unforgiveness imprisons a person and yields the person over to the control of the offender. The consequences of not forgiving, is too costly for anyone to consider harbouring it. Forgiveness on the other hand is the

What does the Bible Say About…Abundance

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10)   The other day I was flicking through channels on the television when I came across a televangelist who was speaking on prosperity. During his message, I got the idea that he was saying to all who were ‘under the sound of his voice’, that if you didn’t have things, you were not living right and that God was withholding blessings for you. This really got me to
