Discipleship is better than Holiness

One of the common mistakes that we have made is to assume that the great commission is to go ito all the world and 'save' mankind. The last words of Jesus was 'to go into all theworld and make disciples. But we have decided that to preach...

Dance of Disillusioned Souls

It all began so well. We were on a high and the world was full of brilliant colour and the hues were wonderful as the Holy Spirit took up resident in our life. We were walking among the clouds and God was so real. We worshipped on that mountain peak...
Time to forego Christmas Celebrations?
Published
I do not believe I would be wrong in saying that the commercialisation of Christ's birth does not sit easy with us. Over my life time I have witnessed a 'watering down' of the naivety story. Today we count ourselves fortunate to see and...
The dance of the Desperate Souls
Published
Too many Christians are performing the dance of the desperates. If this is not alarming enough in the days to come these desperate dancers' ranks will swell with other believers joining in the dance. The dance of the desperates is a dance that...
The Battle for our Mind begins.

There is no question in my mind that we are about to be thrust into a battle for our minds in the near future. The principalities and powers are amassing as we read this blog to begin their onslaught on Gods children. Their methodology is simple cause...
The Anguish of Gods Heart.
Published
Last night God opened up his heart to me for a brief moment and I was overwhelmed with His anguish as I wept with a painful heart. I felt like an OT prophet as Gods insight was too much for me to bear. Oh, my anguish, my anguish!I writhe in pain.Oh,...
Sufficient Grace for his Work

The Lords hand has been heavy upon me these last few days, gently pushing me in directions that, well I had not contemplated going to. It seems that the word Grace will not move out of my head and brother Hoyles blog where he quoted that He must...
Onward Christian Soldiers
Published
Doubt is the enemy of faith. It is my belief that doubt will begin to attack the elect of God over the coming days as the time of Christ's revealing draws nigh. There have been legions of doubt' released into this world from the training camps...
God's grace in its Fullness
Published
Gods grace. Now that is a word rich and full of meaning. The word is like a pearl of great price that has been lost, for as is the way of the world the word falls off our lips as we move on to the next thought. Today is all about sound bites,' and...
Gods Love and the Gifts.
Published
I am extremely grateful for our brother Hoyle (Hoyle Dabbs+@tchable) for presenting his series on the Supernatural church, which I pray has spoken to us in our inner most being, the hidden places in our soul where even we fear to tread. Resulting in...
Gods Glory & His Judgement.
Published
Some will say that I am living in the past and the world has passed me by, but I can remember a time when I spoke to my school teachers with a reverence. When spoken to by them I would always reply using their title Mr so & so. No first name basis...

Gods Glory & the Ark of Covenant

It must have been an awe inspiring sight that would have caused men's hearts to beat a little faster and their heads bow a little lower. To see the Ark of the Covenant being carried by the priestly carriers is a sight that I wished I could have...

The Glory of God and Mt. Sinai

The story recorded of Gods glory and the shambolic rebellion at the foot of this sacred mountain is beyond belief. They all witnessed Gods glory in the form of a cloud and fire, yet the people still clambered for an idol that gave them an assurance by...
The Glory of God and the Exodus

The first instance that Gods glory in mentioned in the scriptures is found in the story of the children of Israel leaving Egypt. We all know the story from our child hood days but as the drama unfolded on the sands of the Egyptian desert there was a...
