The Glory of God

A Spirit of Discernment

The Name of God

I need to begin this blog by quoting Judges 13:18 where an angel of the Lord replies to Manoah who has asked for his name - He replied, "Why do you ask my name?It is beyond understanding." So it is when comes to name the God of Abraham,...
God is Love
Published
This statement points to the very heart of the gospel. In the OT everything turns on the Holiness of God as seen in my last blog, but in the NT everything turns on the Love of God as revealed in the face of Jesus. In the NT the principal truth is the...
Holy Holy is the Lord Almighty.
Published
The Bible is very clear on this point Yahweh alone is Holy and there is no other god that is holy like him. The holiness of God is unique to the maker of heaven and earth. How does the revelation affect you? Such revealed knowledge of Gods holiness...

Stop Treating God like a Magician.

Among many things that the early church was known for; the foremost was prayer. The church in Acts was a praying church. The letters and epistles of the New Testament are full of references to prayer and exhortations to pray. There are well over 400...
Standing in the Breach

God looks down upon the earth seeking someone to stand in the breech, to rebuild the walls that have been torn down by our sinful nature and rebellion against all that is holy. (Ezekiel 22:30) The flood of Gods anger and frustration is building up...
The Joy of Gods Silence.

There will be times of rejoicing and there will be times of sorrow and sadness. There will be times of joy and there will be times of barrenness as if you were lost in a desert place. There will be times of singing from the mountain tops and there...
Seventy times seven

Who among us knows and understands the heart of God? The God who said, that we were to forgive others, as he has forgiven us. To we really comprehend what that exhortation means for us as followers of the most high God? As we prepare ourselves for the...

The ministry of Prayer
Published
There are so many misunderstandings about prayer that God must cringe at times when we pray to him. It its simplest form prayer is talking to God but we are still in nappies as to the truths of prayer. God is calling out prayer warriors, for the need...
Finding our Ministry
