The Meaning of the Good Land

Pastor Denis Matovu
The Old Testament contains many types of Christ, including the light, the land, the sun, the stars, the trees (Gen. 1-2), the Passover lamb, the manna, the water from the cleft rock (Exo. 12-17), and persons such as Adam, Abel, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, David, and Solomon. All of these types portray different aspects of Christ. The good land of Canaan, however, is an all-inclusive type of Christ, signifying Christ as everything to the believers. Hence, it is the ultimate type of Christ found in the Scriptures.

Exercising Our Spirit

Pastor Denis Matovu
According to the Bible, man is a being of three parts: spirit, soul, and body. Many consider the soul and the spirit as being the same, but they are actually distinct from each another. We must discern our soul from our spirit if we are to exercise our spirit.
The functions of the soul and the spirit are also distinct. With our soul, we substantiate the things in the psychological/mental realm, such as thoughts and feelings. With our spirit, we substantiate the things in the spiritual realm, especially God Himself.

What is a Holy Life

Pastor Denis Matovu
The Life-study of Leviticus, summarizes the general sketch of Leviticus in this way: “through the tabernacle, with the offerings and by the priests, God’s redeemed are enabled to fellowship with God, serve God, and be God’s holy people living a holy life, which expresses God...
What does it mean to be a “holy people living a holy life”? The apostle Peter revealed two divine facts that the Triune God gave to every believer. First, we “call as Father” the Holy One who called us (1 Pet. 1:15-17), implying that we have been born of God (1 Pet. 1:3, 23) and thereby possess His holy life and His holy nature. Peter confirmed this divine fact by telling us that we are “partakers of the divine nature” (2 Pet. 1:4). We are holy because we have both the life and nature of our holy Father.

What is the Old Man

Pastor Denis Matovu
In Romans 6:6 the old man refers to our natural but fallen life; it is the life of our soul, which acts independently of God. This is the “I” that Paul said was crucified with Christ (Gal. 2:20). Since that old “I,” the old man, was crucified with Christ, it is good for nothing but burial, which Paul speaks of in Romans 6:4. Thus, in this sense the old man is something personal,
The other two usages of the old man occur in the context of the new man referred to in Ephesians 4:24 and Colossians 3:10. There the old man refers to the old mankind as a corporate entity. God created Adam as the father of the human race, so we all descended from him. When Adam fell, he became “old” and the “old man,” since sin results in oldness and corruption. All mankind as Adam’s offspring became the enlargement and extension of this old man, thus becoming the corporate old man filling the earth.

What is the Healing of Blindness in the Gospel of Mark

Pastor Denis Matovu
We believe that, in spiritual significance, the healing of the blindness of Bartimaeus was also a healing of the blindness of James, John, and the other disciples. The Lord did not give them a position at His right and left, but He certainly was willing to heal their blindness. He knew that He had come to be the light of the world. Therefore, He was willing to give sight to the blind. James and John begged in a wrong way, but Bartimaeus begged in a right way. James and John asked to sit on the Lord’s right and left, but Bartimaeus asked to receive his sight.

What is the Self

Pastor Denis Matovu
To understand what the self is, we must consider the creation and fall of man. God created man with a spirit, a soul, and a body (Gen. 2:7; 1 Thes. 5:23; Heb. 4:12). He made man’s spirit with the capacity to contact, receive, and contain God (John 4:24; 3:6; Rom. 8:16). God formed man’s soul with the faculties of mind, emotion, and will so he could express Him. God created man’s body so he could contact the physical world. God’s intention was for man to be filled in his spirit with God’s divine life to express Him through the organ of his soul.

A Reminder Concerning the Word of God

Pastor Denis Matovu
These three scriptures, interspersed in our previous meditations, indicate how God wants to use His word to impact us with His grace. The first passage describes God's word as "the word of His grace." God explains His grace to us through His word. He offers his grace to us through His word. He works His grace within us as we are nurtured in His word, trusting in what the Lord has to say to us. As God's word is taken into our lives, its capabilities are unleashed, demonstrating that it is "able to build you up and give you an inheritance."
