The everlasting light that gives everlasting life.

The Oil of the Spirit
Truly, the Word of God is light which shines brightly in a world overcast with darkness. The power of God’s Word is like a high powered flash light in the dark. Without it we would stumble and fall. It lights up the path way revealing the rocks and bumps along the way.

Each step of the person who clings to God’s Word will be in the right direction. Even if they go in the wrong direction, the Spirit of God will gently lead them to the right one. “Teach me your way, LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.” Psalm 27:11. The Spirit of God helps us in a practical way in our everyday decisions.

The Sun of Righteousness is the light of the world. He is the Oil, that feeds the lamp. He is the giver of eternal hope…

It is not over, there is HOPE>

Gihon Publishing Blog: Heavenly Treasures Ministries

romans12_12Rejoice and again I say, Rejoice.

If you are in union with Christ, you have every reason to rejoice. It is privilege to belong to a Royal Family, to be set apart for His glory and honour.

Rejoice in confident Hope

You can rejoice as part of God’s family because you have Hope. This Hope is not baseless, it is firmly based upon what God has declared in His word. This is your Faith, it is by Grace. The promises of God are unchangeable. Romans 5:2 says, “we boast in the the hope of the glory of God,”(Romans 5:4,5; 8:24,25; 15:4, 13). The Believer can rejoice even in the depth of affliction because of this future hope which is not variable. It is hope that endures stress, doubt and all forms of opposition. It is hope that protects the mind, body and soul. It is the Helmet, the Breast Plate…

fb-banner14Return to the Lord
The earth is the Lord’s and its fullness thereof. He is able to use every available resource within it to draw us back to Him.

Come let us return to the Lord:
Israel had departed from the ways of the Lord. The chapter preceding Hosea 6, ends with an announcement: He vows to bring His children back to Him. In their distress they would seek Him diligently,

“I will return again to My place
Till they acknowledge their offense.
Then they will seek My face;
In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me.”
Hosea 5:15

Returning to the Lord
The sin and fall of the Israelites was their worship of Idols. The prophet Hosea admonished and called on them to come to the place of repentance. It is never too late to return to the Lord when we have offended Him. He is full of mercy…

Yep, the world’ll know

Even the wicked can’t stop it….

Looking at Psalm 31:19, we can ask the question, “who are those who FEAR and Trust the Lord?”

John 1:12 says, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God, to those who believe in His name.” (NKJV)

Romans 8:14 says, “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. (NKJV)

These are the people who fear and trust the Lord. The faith of the believer in Jesus Christ truly demonstrates God’s faithfulness. It is the faithfulness of God which causes them to believe… Selah

How great is God’s goodness

The goodness of God is “laid up”, hidden; preserved; set aside, for those who love the Lord. His goodness is bestowed, without measure, upon those who believe. 1Peter 1:4 says, they have an incorruptible and undefiled inheritance laid up for them in Heaven. A…

This pure sweetness to the soul. It’s a two way street… sweetness to God and sweetness to me…

Isn’t it heart-warming to read encouraging words of scripture on Social Media in the midst of the horrendous dark content you come across. Just one encouraging post can change the course of your day. The eyes are the window to the soul and what filters through can either produce light, or darkness.

The mind has such retentive memory, what it sees, what it reads, what it perceives can either have a pleasant or unpleasant effect. It either builds youup, or tears you down. Can you imagine what Social Media would be without the brightness of God’s Word. It would be a completely dark place. Praise God for those who take their time to share it.

The Word of God brings light in darkness. It carries great news. It is a conduit of joy. Each time you see a scripture post on Social Media, take time to meditate on it…

A life completely devoted to God

It’s got to be a life of devotion and nothing but devotion…

Gihon Publishing Blog: Heavenly Treasures Ministries

romans12_1scriptA life completely devoted to God

The believer in Christ has a New Life bestowed upon him or her by grace. It’s a life, presented to God, as in Romans 6:13.

This person is saved by the divine compassion and mercies of God and not by any human endeavours or personal efforts. Sin has no dominion. It is no longer a life under the Law, but under grace.

The total act of surrender
In Romans 12:1, Paul presents, “the mercies of God,” to the mind of the believer, as the most powerful incentive to devote oneself to His service. A person can be completely sold out to sin. It involves the mind, body and soul: it is to be conscious of it in ones thinking and intelligence. To be completely sold out to Jesus means that the person is absolutely and altogether faithful to God. It involves the transformation of…

psalm49_20scriptThe afflicted believer and the wealthy sinner

It is possible to go through this world and exit having achieved nothing. A person may have all the wealth of the world, live a self-serving life of covetousness, yet in reality, is like a beast that perishes. Once it is gone, it is forgotten. The soul of a man however, doesn’t go into oblivion, the soul lives on and will one day face the final judgement.

A man or woman in honour understands his or her purpose. Everything they live for points towards Christ. They have a hope and great expectation of a greater glory to come.

The believer in Christ is never to envy the sinner who lives for the gratification of the flesh and the indulgence of this world. The believer lives for the honour and glory of God. He or she understands they have dominion over worldliness. They belong…

The Glory of God

Gihon Publishing Blog: Heavenly Treasures Ministries


The fame, character and greatness of His glorious name is in all the earth. His glory outstrips and exceeds even the Heavens. He is the name over every other name. There is no one on this earth that can fully estimate His greatness. Who or what can measure Him? He is God alone: He created the Heavens and Earth. Before time began, He was. The whole earth is on display, declaring His majesty and greatness. Selah.

There is no wisdom that compares to His. He placed seed in the earth, producing vegetation of every kind. He created all living creatures. Both plants and animals reproducing and multiplying, by His glorious hand in all the earth. The whole of creation is dependent on Him, it is sustained by Him, it begins and ends with Him.

The only one who can aptly describe the greatness and majesty of God is God Himself…
