a word of delight for 2016
Published
As I spoke in my previous blog I sense in the heart of the Lord that this year is to be a year of new beginnings as the Lord will thrust us deeper into his kingdom with fire in our souls and upon our tongue. God will suddenly appear before us and our...
the times and seasons of 2016
Published
There are times and seasons in the Lord and the passing of the times and seasons are at the discretion of the Lord. There is a time for weeping and a time for rejoicing, a time to be still and a time to be active in the atmosphere of the Holy Spirit....
gods vision to us in 2016
Published
I believe this year is to be the year when the Holy Spirit will be planting vision seeds into our spirits that will not let us go for the thought will be consistently before us. We will be like Jonah who found that he could run away from the...
god s response in 2016 to the church under siege
Published
Today there is no doubt that the church in the widest sense of the word has gone astray and that the Body of Christ is under attack from demonic forces that he been let loose to roam the earth and disrupt the world of Gods elect. In doing so the body...
demonic forces and our battle strategies
Published
When Jesus was raised from the river Jordan being baptized by John the heavens were opened and a dove descended and Gods voice declared 'You are my son whom I love; with you I am well pleased.' I believe at this very moment the vocation of...
speaking with boldness ~ part two
Published
In my last blog I spoke of the boldness if Peter and John, two un learned fishermen who, when they were brought before the religious leaders and theologians of their day spoke with such boldness that the hearers were astonished beyond belief. We...
speaking with boldness no apologies
Published
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. Acts 4 13 NIV My payer is that I will not be ashamed of the gospel of Christ...
the glory of god as a foundation truth
Published
The term Glory belongs exclusively to the God of the Bible. Why is this so? Because God wills it. God of the Bible wills to be recognized as Lord of all the earth. The God of the Bible is not indifferent, for the 'revelatory God' is a jealous...
jesus said i am the light of the world
Published
One of the great themes of John's gospel is the wonderful truth of Christ as the Light of the world. In fact if one does a search of the word light in the Bible one would find that the term is used extensively as a metaphor for God, the nation...
The Parables of Jesus in the Synoptic Gospels
Published
My thoughts have been drawn to this subject by the leading of the Holy Spirit who has been nudging me in this direction for some time, but I was not keen as this an immensely comprehensive subject. Whether this begins a series or not, I cannot tell at...
today s generation still seek for a sign
Published
Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, 21nor will people say, 'Here it is, or There it is, 'because the kingdom of...
The two headed Monster of our Adamic nature
Published
I wish to prick our righteous Christian bubble. As I was drawn by the gracious Holy Spirit to Psalm 106, a psalm that I would not count as one of my favorites, I could not escape verse 8-9. My eyes were reverted on these two verses as the pride and...
The Mis leading Gospels of Christmas
Published
I am reminded that the season of Christmas is just around the corner for on the radio stations there are corals playing and the local mall has put up glittering decorations of red and green. I witnessed the other day our local Christmas parade that...
thanksgiving, praise & worship
Published
Ever since I posted my last blog which was followed by 'Lift Up Your Voice!' by K Reynolds+ (@kreynolds); which flowed into a blog entitled 'Praise: Experience The Presence Of God' by Les B+ (@doneuntotheleast) God has not moved me...
weapons of righteousness
Published
The Holy Spirit has kept me camped in the theme of spiritual warfare which I had reasoned was time to move on, but no, the constraining hand of God would not allow me to move on. Therefore I went back to the passage in Ephesians 6 from whence the...
our wrestling match is not against persons with bodies
Published
It is not a question of IF but WHEN. In the near future we will all be battling with persons without bodies for the evil day is coming to those on CB. Like the ten virgins some of us will be prepared for the conflict while others will be caught short...
christ has won the victory
Published
The story has been told of a mental hospital that many years ago devised an unusual test to determine when their patients were ready to go back into the world. They brought a candidate for release to a room where a water faucet was left on so that the...
to the angel of the church in laodicea
Published
This was the last letter that John wrote to the seven churches in Asia Minor recorded in Revelation 2-3 and it is perhaps the better known, if only by verse 20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I...
to the angel of the church in philadelphia
Published
As we continue our series that the Lord has commissioned me to blog on the seven churches in Revelation and how they can speak to us in the 'now.' I have been convinced in my spirit that these blogs are for us today, not yesterday and...
to the angel of the church in sardis
Published
This letter I found to be one of the most frustrating to understand as we are left unsure as to the real situation that Jesus was speaking into. Like a good biblical scholar I consulted a number of learned commentaries, but they were of no help. Hence...
to the church in thyatira
Published
This is the fourth blog in the series of the letters to the churches found in Revelation that the Lord has commissioned me to write. Of all the letters to these churches in Asia Minor this is perhaps the most damming. Hence we need to proceed to...
Our prayer for Kirk and Beth
Published
Lord I fall on my knees before you as I cry out to you in the faith...
to the angel of the church in pergamum write
Published
This is the third in the series of letters to the sevens churches. Pergamum or Pergamos, either is correct. The church had been placed in the midst of Satan's throne surrounded by the occult on all sides. Besides this Pergamum was the political...
to the church of smyrna
Published
When I came to ponder on this letter to the angel of the church at Smyrna I was at first perplexed as there was no obvious downfall that needed to be corrected. I had been convinced in my spirit that the Lords message was to look at the deceptions...
taste and see that the lord is good
Published
I did plan to write/blog my next installment in the series of letters to the seven churches as the Lord has called me to do. But I sensed a hesitation in the Spirit to commence blogging tonight, as in my mind I knew I was not ready and in doing so I...
