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 that Christ has born into my heart, the faith that kept him close to you in a oneness. Father we lift up Kirk to you and as we do we stand on your word that sustains us through all...
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...
To the angel in the church at Ephesus
Published
I wish for you to contemplate in your mind a port city that is the centre of commerce and trade. A city that is the largest within a given region coupled with a thriving growing population and is known throughout the world as having a great tourism...
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...
