letters to the 7 churches
Published
I feel strongly compelled by the voice of God to blog on his message to the seven churches in the Book of Revelation. I am aware that this series may be the source of some disagreement, but it is not my intention to enter into any conflict concerning...
falsehood and wolves among the sheep
Published
Whenever and wherever Christians gather into groups there is the Lord in their midst, but I believe I can say without argument that so are prophets in wolves clothing. This should not come as a surprise for the Bible teaches that in the end times...
god s word can come to you
Published
The year is approx. 590BC or thereabouts and King Zedekiah is on the throne of Judah. But his country is facing a crisis for the city of Jerusalem has been under siege by the Babylonians. Zedekiah by this time had been ruling his kingdom for a period...
Gods Battle Strategies
Published
As Christians we all have our battles. These conflicts cannot be avoided for they are part and parcel of being a disciple. Whether we are battling the world, or struggling with some besetting sin, or under the burden and power of the evil one we are...
What have we done with our Gift of Righteousness?
Published
A few blogs back I spoke on the gift of righteousness from the book of Romans that has been bestowed in us at salvation. The question that God will ask of us on that Great Day is; 'What have you done with my gift that I won for you through the...
They have overcome their Accuser
Published
I wish to address this blog under the direction of the Holy Spirit to those who are drowning in self pity, to those who are in an enclosed space of anxiety and the walls are pressing in, to those who are chocking on depression as they cannot swallow...
The Deception of Laziness
Published
Laziness is a blight on the death of Christ, that once we have been born again we are convinced that we can 'piggy-back' our way to eternal life. To base our Christian walk on the fact that we are secure for the afterlife, is a delusion that...
are we abusing gods righteousness?
Published
The Greek word translated in our English Bible as Just and Righteous is from the same root word but for unknown reasons lost to me, translators have used either Justified or Righteousness. The concept of Justification is a term used more in reference...
The Church s greatest Deception
Published
Deception can overcome a person at any time when they chose to believe their own hearts rather than the word of God. Such deception can spread like a creeping slim into the minds and spirits of all who lay in comfort on their religious couches. But...
correctly handling the word of truth
Published
Biblical Hermeneutics or in plain language 'the interpretation of the bible' has so many traps and false pathways that have lead people into the cults and 'wolves in sheep's clothing' situations that I tremble in beginning to wrote...
an approved workman of god s word
Published
My heart is heavy and dumb founded tonight as I sit before the Lord seeking his guidance as to the blog he wishes me to write for I have been pierced many times this week with the deception that I have discovered in peoples interpretation of the holy...
the delusion of god s love
Published
As I look back at the 'signs of times' I have noticed an error creeping into the culture of Christian thinking and to some extent modern teaching concerning the nature of God's love. There appears to me a deception that to be loved by God...
deception is acknowledging that we are earth bound.
Published
There is another deception that I have noticed that is coming more pronounced among the Christians of today. Many a believer has forgotten where their home is. This is strange and confusing for the scriptures are very clear as to where our home is,...
Eschatology Speculations today s strong Delusion
Published
The great strong delusion that is encompassing Christendom at present as the world draws to its close is its fascination and intrigue of the end times. It seems as if mankind is programmed to search high and low to know the mysteries and secrets of...
strange fire is anathema to god
Published
There are two aspects of God that today's generation of Christians have 'watered down' until these characteristics of Gods have been marginalized. Many of the older saints from the 19thC. would be horrified to listen to the way we speak of...
many who say i believe can be under a delusion
Published
I can predict that this series on deception will not have a huge readership, clicks and comments as such a topic has been pushed to the back water in favour of endless speculation about the end times, code words, mysteries and hidden meanings in the...
Lovers of the Truth
Published
They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness....
the struggle against being bewitched
Published
I was reading a book of fiction the other day which outlined a plot by Israel to deceive the president of the USA by conning the US navy to launch a nuclear strike against Iraq. In this way Israel would escape the repercussions but would have dealt a...
spiritual battles against deception
Published
Sad but true fact. Many of our church goers who attend places of worship in the so called developed western word have no concept of the battles that they as born again believers will face. We are told that our struggle is not against our fellow...
confounding and confusing spiritual struggles
Published
Many believers do not know or are not aware of the fact that once we are born again we are exposed to Satan the arch enemy of God. Because the Son of God now lives in our hearts for we have stepped out of the Kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of...
our battles with temptation
Published
This not an easy subject to teach, for from my perspective the scriptures are not as clear as other doctrines, which I suppose could well be the intention of God. But since the earliest of times mankind has attempted to dabble in the dark mysteries to...
finally be strong in the lord
Published
I am sure all you have read the opening title to this blog have a fair idea what my theme is today for the above words introduce us to one of the best known passages in the NT. Ephesians 6 with its military theme has always held a fascination for me...
adopted by god what does this mean?
Published
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12 NIV Have we stopped to contemplate the significance of this verse? God does not give away His rights lightly for he is a jealous...
Let me Introduce my Father.
Published
As I have grown in my Christian walk, which has not been a smooth walk but disjointed in 'fits and starts,' I have realized how easily we read the scriptures with doctrinal blinkers on. At other times we have the all prevailing habit of taking...
