The Blood of the Lamb
Published
To talk of the blood poured out on the cross is not a topic of discussion in today's Christian world. For many such imagery belongs to a past barbaric age that has no relevance for the 'modern man' for we have grown up since then. Such...
Hold fast to our Faith
Published
How often have we come up against the proverbial brick wall? For many Christians they seem to 'going now-where' as the river that they have to cross is too wide, too deep and too swift. And besides there is no way they can build a flotation...
Where has my God given Immunity Gone?
Published
It seems that we are battling almost every day. The hire purchase, the mortgage payments, the car bills, the children, personal relationships, our career, life in general. Then there are the local bodies and government policies and so I could go on...
Guard your heart above all else

My son,pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words.21Do not let them out of your sight,keep them within your heart;22for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body.23Above all else, guardyour heart, for it is...
Our Giants are an enemy within
Published
I believe that we speak very loose and glibly about the giants that we face. David faced his Goliath across the valley in front of his fellow countrymen. Goliath was real for he could be heard roaring like a bull and he could not be missed, so great...
We are called to wrestle before God
Published
And pray in the Spirit on all occasionswith all kinds of prayers and requests. Eph 6 In these last days the call to prayer is more urgent than ever in the history of the church. We are called to wrestle before God in prayer. Why wrestle? Because the...
God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ
Published
Those who teach and preach that the Christian life is a beautiful journey, full of blessings of love, happiness and success are wrong period. To use such terms as you will experience a loving good beautiful spiritual life, those teachers have not been...
Saul and David; their Characters contrasted.
Published
Ephesians 4:15 - we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head,that is, Christ. The cross has set us from sin, but the 'body of sin' that dwells within our hearts is our responsibility to destroy. For this reason we are exhorted...
The call of God to Samuel 1 Sam. 3
Published
I wish to direct your thoughts to the well known account of Gods call to be boy Samuel who had been given by his mother to service in the temple. As Samuel lay day to sleep he was not to know that this was the night that the God of Abraham. Isaac and...
The 12 Spies and their Evaluation
Published
The ways and methods of God are foreign to our way of thinking. I would be safe to say that this is in the vast majority of Gods dealings with his saints. There is a gulf as wide as heaven is from the earth in the thinking of God and our understanding...
Moses and the Burning Bush
Published
The walk that Moses walked has great significance for us in these last days of confusion and turmoil. I wish to bring to your attention the subject of Gods guidance. My interest in this truth was aroused when I read an inspired blog by Phil where he...
Isaac walked with God
Published
I wish to mine the truths that God has opened to me from Genesis 26. Verse one tells that there was a famine in the land and the obvious course of action was to move to Egypt were their was food, safety and the comforts of life. Common sense would...
Noah found favour with God.
Published
Noah possessed a fruit of the spirit that is not spoken of much these days holy fear had wrapped itself around Noah and this quality from God guided him in all that he did. When we read the account of his life from Genesis we cannot be struck by his...
Walking in Oneness with God
Published
I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message,21that all of them may be one,Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. John 21 Before we were born Jesus prayed that we may all be one with the Father, as he is one with His...
Enoch s walk is to be our Walk
Published
Compared to the other heroes of faith mentioned in this chapter we know so little about Enoch he did not utter any prophecy or stand before any of the Israelite Kings or do any 'mighty deeds.' Yet the spirit of God seems fit to include his...
The Calling Out to walk with God
Published
By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance,obeyed and went,even though he did not know where he was going. Heb. 11 We read the Abraham was called out to leave his secure place behind and go out on an...
Faith truths from the letter to the Hebrews
Published
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to himmust believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. Hebrews 11 Hands up those who thought the faith we have been given is for our benefit? That...
Discipleship and a working conquering faith
Published
then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, Joshua 24 These words thrown down as a challenge by Joshua so long ago, are equally relevant today as they were back around 1300BC. In these last days God is sending out his messengers with this...
Discipleship and working Faith
Published
God will not let me move on from Exodus 13 & 14 and so here I am for the Holy Spirit has still more truth to extract from this account of the Children of Israel leaving Egypt. Mind you I was prepared to move on for the logical move would be to...
The Disciple s growth unto Holiness
Published
I wish to base this message on the account in Exodus 13 & 14 of the Children of Israel leaving Egypt and travelling to the Red sea. The story is familiar to those with the OT biblical stories that have been told from our 'mother's...
The Call of God to Teach.

The wordof the LORD came to me: Jeremiah 2 It is my belief that as the 'day of the Lord' draws closer more and more followers of Jesus will hear the call of God break into their daily life's that will cause them to look up and see Gods...
The day of the Lord and his Sabbath Rest
Published
This blog was a real struggle as there was no clear direction from ther Lord other than to sit down and write the following is the result. May you be blessed as you read my offering from Him. There is coming a day when the voice of God will not...
The Biblical Teachers Verse

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2 Tim. 2:15 NIV This verse is the teacher's instructions for those who aspire to teach the word of God....
Where have all the Teachers gone?
Published
my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Hosea 4 This cry was uttered around 700 BC by Hosea, the first of the so called 'minor' prophets against the priests, who had been set aside by God to be watchmen over his people. The body of...
Gods Holy Word
Published
The Bible is the Word of God. To call the Bible by any other name is to deny God and the reality of our experience. Men may call the Bible a history of the Jewish nation and use it to trace the twelve tribes during the Diaspora. Men may view the Bible...
