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...
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...
