“The Hem of His Garment”

By: Elder Enoch Ofori Jnr

God’s law is a wonder-causing law; it’s a dynamo of divine power! In Psalm 119:18 the Psalmist prays: “Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of Thy law”.

The law uttered by the God of Fire out of the midst of fire is a generator of divine power, and it causes miracles (Ex. 19:16-18; Deut. 4:36, 5:22, 33:2).

Little wonder, the hem of Jesus’ garment emitted power to heal the sick! Like every devout Jew of His day, the hem of Jesus’ garment was made of fringes or tassels that served as a reminder of God’s spiritual commandments.

After a man was caught and punished for transgressing God’s Sabbath, the LORD instructed Moses:

Covenantal Blessings of Abraham's Children

By Elder Enoch Ofori Jnr.

It is a covenant nonpareil, a covenant without equal. The Abrahamic covenant towers above all other covenants in the scriptures. In terms of its enactment, scope and longevity, the Abrahamic covenant stands out.

Hand in Hand: God’s grace and the Law at work in the Holy Christian Life

BY: ELDER ENOCH OFORI JNR

Often, the grace of God and the law of God are presented as conflicting concepts which do not belong together.

In reality, however, that is far from the Biblical truth.  God’s grace and His law are not mutually exclusive.  If anything, the latter justifies the former.

Indeed, the overriding objective of God’s grace is to prepare us for a life of obedience based on God’s law of righteousness.  Titus 2:11-12 tells us:

Freedom From The Slave Life

By Elder Enoch Ofori Jnr.

Freedom is a concept people of all generations hold dear. Without freedom the human spirit itself appears shackled, robbing man of peace, happiness and wellbeing.

For the cause of freedom, millions in this life have fought and shed their blood. But so far man has sought for freedom that is temporary and superficial. True freedom, if it’s to be obtained, must be born of the Spirit, for the origins of the human plight lie in the spiritual.

Our Three Enemies

Every human being has three enemies clearly identified in the scriptures.

They are
  • Satan (John 10:10; 1 Pet. 5:8; Rev. 12:12).
  • The World (1 John 2:15-17, 5:19; Eph. 2:2; Jam. 4:4; Rev. 12:9)
  • The Flesh (Rom. 7:14, 18, 8:8, 13; 1Cor. 9:27; Lk. 14:26).

To be free and secure in our salvation received through Christ, each of these three enemies must be confronted, resisted and conquered. Left unchecked, they function as cruel slave masters in the life of every individual, being deadly enemies of the human soul.

The Genesis

Mankind as a whole was sold under sin in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve ate the ‘forbidden fruit’ in obedience to Satan (Gen. 3; Rom. 7:14). Like the tree of good and evil man partook against God’s will and warning, man, originally created good like God (Gen. 1:27, 31; Deut. 32:4), came to embody two contrasting natures: Good and Evil, representing Satan, who knowing good had then corrupted his way (Ezek. 28:15).

But to do good man, now under the control of Satan (Eph. 2:2-3), was powerless to do but only “evil continually” (Gen. 6:5; Rom. 7:19). The situation is dire! For the carnal person, the will to do good is present with him/her, but how to perform that which is good, he/she is incapable (vs 18). It’s a life of slavery.

Is the Sabbath in the New Testament?

The label “the Jewish Sabbath” has often been applied to the seventh day. Yet nowhere in the scriptures is the 7th day referred to as such nor are we told to keep a Jewish Sabbath. It’s a most egregious misnomer! The 7th Day Sabbath is “the Sabbath of the LORD” – Exodus 20:10. In His own words, God calls the seventh day “my holy day” – Isai. 58:13.
