From Chaos to Peace in the New Year

On his final journey to Rome, Paul was a prisoner on a ship with 276 passengers. After two weeks of storm-tossed seas, the apostle was the only person who knew the meaning of peace. As day was about to dawn, “Paul besought them all the take mean, saying, ‘This day is the fourteenth day that ye have tarried and continued fasting, having taken nothing'” (Acts 27:33). He not only urged them to eat for survival, […]

God Wants to Change Your World

At Thessalonica, Paul and Silas were involved in a near riot, but it really wasn’t their fault. The Jews were so jealous of the crowds who were listening to Paul explain the Scriptures that they rounded up some unsavory characters at the marketplace, formed a mob, and started a riot in the city (see Acts 17:1-5). The throng shouted to the rulers of the city:
“These that have turned the world upside down are come hither […]

Love

I received an “F” in geometry the first time I took the course in high school. This qualified me for the ‘privilege” of taking the course a second time. I hated mathematics, and the second time around I was getting another “F.” Midway through the course our teacher became ill and was replaced with a substitute. When the substitute walked into the classroom for the first time, we all gasped silently. His face was so […]

Ephesians Chapter 5 – Lesson Two

The following is a transcript from Pastor Benny’s live Fresh Manna teaching. I’m going to have a great time with you today again as we study Ephesians. Listen, this is been an amazing book to study and today, I’m going to discuss something very important on this teaching and that is the relationship between husband and wife, between children and parents and much more. So, let’s begin by looking at Ephesians chapter 5. I want […]

Ephesians Chapter 5 – Lesson One

The following is a transcript from Pastor Benny’s live Fresh Manna teaching. All right, now, let’s begin with Ephesians chapter 5, “Be ye therefore” verse 1 says, “followers of God, as dear children”. Now he begins by saying, “Be ye therefore” because in the previous chapter, he finished by saying, “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you” that’s of course verse […]

Ephesians Chapter 4 – Lesson Three – Part 2

The following is a transcript from Pastor Benny’s live Fresh Manna teaching. Paul the apostle now had been telling the church about the unity of the faith and so, he says, in verse 20, “But ye have not so learned Christ” after he had said, do not walk like other Gentiles walk in verse 17. He tells us how we should walk. “But ye have not so learned Christ” verse 20 says, “If so be […]

Ephesians Chapter 4 – Lesson Three – Part 1

The following is a transcript from Pastor Benny’s live Fresh Manna teaching. All right, now, go with me to Matthew 27 because we got to talk about this and I want to help you understand it. This is a very exciting thing we’re going to talk about right here. Matthew 27:50, the Bible says, “Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. [51] And, behold, the veil of the […]

Ephesians Chapter 4 – Lesson Two

The following is a transcript from Pastor Benny’s live Fresh Manna teaching. We endeavor to keep the unity of the Holy Spirit because if we’re not united in the Spirit, we loose what God gives us in this glorious calling. You have to understand this. Without the unity that the Holy Ghost gives, none of God’s promises can be ours. And then he goes on to say, “There is one body… one Spirit, even as […]

His Transforming Touch

Saul, who later was called Paul, is a prime example of the way the Holy Spirit can transform your walk. Can you imagine calling someone who is a blasphemer, a persecutor, and a murder, “Brother”? To the natural ear, that sounds impossible. But that’s what the Holy Spirit can do. He makes the impossible possible. When God told Ananias to go and pray for Saul, he argued: “Lord, I have heard by many of this […]
