Welcome to Timotheist

Standing on the Word

Isn’t the boast of the post-modern age, the boast of knowledge? The basis upon which many decry our faith, is the assumption that those who believe, do not know better. They beat their chests who would deride our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, by exalting themselves above Him upon the idea that they know, therefore they disbelieve.

The prevailing zeitgeist has insidiously permeated the ranks of the Church of Christ, so that among those who name the name of Jesus, are found some if not many, whose enthusiasm for the Lord barely rises higher than dampened powder. Are they saved? Yes, they are. Do they fellowship with believers? Yes, they do. But this higher call, to know Him, is a foreign concept to them.

May this platform serve to help you to know God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

COVID-19: A LESSON FROM HISTORY

03-April-2020 by Timothy Wanjohi

The wisest man in the world, King Solomon, said, there is nothing new under the sun. In previous times, the saints have been faced with periods of hardship during pandemics like the COVID-19 pandemic we are currently facing in the world. In the 16th Century, the ‘Black Death’ caused 75 million deaths in a world of 500 million people. It must have looked like the end of the world. In the 17th Century, Cholera devastated the world severely. In the 20th Century, the Spanish Flu killed 50 million people, and 75% of those who died were killed within the first 15 weeks only. In the first and second world wars, 50 million lives were lost.

 

The words of the faithful men of God who have gone there before us should serve to encourage us in wisdom and hope. Re . . .

COVID-19 PAINTING PICTURES

01-April-2020 by Timothy Wanjohi

Most people in Kenya believe in hell. However, almost no one thinks that they are headed there. We have done such a terrible job at telling them that hell exists for people who lead the kind of lives that they do. As a TYPE of hell, God has sent an artist to paint a picture of the consequences of sin, of defiance in sin despite torment, and of God’s election.

 

 

Covid-19 is a talented painter of hell. He portrays consequence of sin on earth to show that similarly, there are consequences of sin deferred to the future in the Lake of Fire (Revelation 21:8). If he can touch us because of sin, hell too can touch us because of sin. The major d . . .

COVID-19 AND THE CHRISTIAN

25-March-2020 by Timothy Wanjohi

During an epidemic, the Church and the Government have a role to play and nature is giving a message. By understanding these, we will adopt the right practice and possess the proper attitude towards the epidemic. Ultimately, we will deliver the world through the Christian perspective.

 

The Church and the Government are two arms the Government of God. They were conflated under one arm until 1 Samuel 8, when God separated the roles of the Prophet (Church) and the roles of the King (Government). At no point however was God surrendering any of these two offices over to another power other than Himself.
