Brothers Sisters we are in a war Zone

More Spiritual Warfare Tactics

Spiritual Warfare The Lord Supper

It came to me the other day that partaking in the Lord s Supper or Eucharist is a form of spiritual warfare.   This revelation came suddenly from out of left field that, as I dwell on it in the following days, was a word from the Lord himself.  I am...
Donald Trumps historic summit with Kim Jong-un

Resurrection Power and the Keys to our Weapons
Published
I believe that I stand on firm theological and Biblical ground when I say that Christ defeated Satan through his death and resurrection.  This truth runs clearly throughout Pauls teaching; that we have been set free from the Law, Satan and death.  He...
Deception is Out to Grab You
Published
This is not a usual blog that I would happily write but the word has been pressing down on me over the past few days from the Holy Spirit.  I have had doubts that no one will read it. I have sensed in my spirit that the enemy has spewed out of his...
The Gospel of St Paul

Just as Paul writes that he becomes all things to all people that he might win some, (1 Corinthians 9) so to I believe that the roaring lion becomes all things to all people that he to may devour some.  The lion that roars can come to us an adorable...

The Window, the Rope and the Basket

In Acts 9 we read the powerful encounter Saul, as he was known then, found himself in face to face with the one whom he as persecuting.  We all know the story of the Damascus experience of Saul s/Pauls conversion.  Of how he was blinded and for three...

Battle Logistics 101
Published
I have noticed a tendency within us believers that when we are amid a battle we tend to loose all shape, much like a cricket ball at the end of a day s play. Or for my American friends, I suspect a baseball after a huge number of innings.  In the case...
Time to Rise up and Shake off the Yoke
Published
There comes a time in our walk with God that a time for righteous indignation against the enemy needs to rise up.  For many of us we are like the Israelites facing Goliath and his army in that we allow the enemy to walk all over us.  Many of us line...
Three Simple Spiritual Principles

I believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ is a simple message of hope.  I also believe that the Christian walk of discipleship is also a simple walk of trust.  I also know the things of God that have been revealed to us are often simple, confounding...
Prophetic Words from 1 Corinthians 16
Published
There is a verse in 1 Corinthians that caught my attention as the Holy Spirit quickened my spirit.  I was reading through the epistle penned by Paul, most likely on his second missionary journey as he sojourned in Ephesus around the early AD 50 s.  In...
With all Your Heart
Published
Proverbs 3 verse 5 exhorts us to trust in the Lord with all your heart.   N.I.V. All the major translations use the same term with all your heart. Two points that I noticed from this text.  Firstly, the small phrase that defines this verse; with all...
Gods Goodness is Shown

Since I posted my last blog entitled Curses and Declarations, which looking back now was the vanguard of this blog along with a gift from our Father.  By this I mean that after I had posted the afore mentioned blog I was assailed with my prostate...
Curses and Declarations from Goliath & David
Published
Who would believe that there is so much spiritual truth from a popular Sunday School bible story?  Yet the Holy Spirit has brought us back to this well-known story of David and Goliath that many of my readers know off my heart and can repeat the...
Warrior Wisdom from 1 Samuel 17
Published
1 Samuel 17 has been on my mind and in my spirit all week as I waited on the Holy Spirits voice to reveal his word.  It has been a struggle as the enemy of doubt and lies tried to stop me from hearing the voice of the God.  But in humbleness the...

Central Tenets of the Faith being Undermined

I hear the Lord call to his people to be of a sober mind, to be alert and vigilant for without knowing it we can slip into error and end up believing with all our heart a distortion.  I sense that this warning is relevant in the coming days as the...
My Grace is Sufficient - part 3
Published
As the Lord keeps me digging onto this passage in 2 Corinthians 12 we have arrived at the well-known and the often-quoted verse 9.  Quoted I believe at times erroneously.  My grace is sufficient.   NIV. Observe that there was an answer to Pauls cry,...
My Grace is Sufficient part 2

My Grace is Sufficient part 1
