The Snake spoke to me this Week.
Published
Earlier in the week I asked God what I should blog on and he spoke a single word to me. That was fine although I did wonder if that was a wise choice of reply. Thursday came and I had not received another word from God concerning my blog. So guess...
Did Jesus preach Two Gospels?
Published
Over the last few weeks I have been introduced to the idea that Jesus preached the Kingdom of God or Kingdom of Heaven message [both are inter changeable] to the Jews who were still living under the Mosaic Law, with the suggestion that this Gospel is...
God bless you – what do you mean?
Published
When we ask God to bless us do we really know what we are asking for? What do we expect God to do? When we pray for Gods blessings are we doing the right thing by asking? The concept of blessings and being blessed by God has been mis understood by the...
Let’s remember to K.I.S.S.
Published
Life can be a real burden, like blowing into the wind, or pushing water up hill. We seem to be on a merry-go-round and we are sitting on the horse that is going up and down and round and round. Life is too complicated. Life is complicated, as it...
Walk like Enoch
Published
Enoch walked with God and was seen no more as was taken directly into the heavens. This character who was the grandson of Adam (through Seth) , the son of Jared, the father of Methuselah, and the great-grandfather of Noah pleased God. The statement...
The Walk of Life
Published
I will wager that many of church goers who have been to a worship service over the past month are not walking the Christian walk by faith; instead they are living the life as a believer in a hypocritical manner. The majority of ‘born again...
Faith that is Pleasing to God
Published
Faith is an interesting concept, for in the most part it is used rather loosely by sincere Christians who do not have a real grasp on its meaning. In many cases the word is treated like a commodity, as if faith can be purchased or lost. We hear...
As a Child we find Gods Kingdom
Published
Lord where do I begin as there is so much to cover and so may understandings” The Lord said, “I will help you.” With my time at Theological college I read may books and discussed many lectures on the Kingdom of God and if I remember...
Forgiveness is a gift given by Gods mercy
Published
God is calling us to examine our hearts so that there is no root of bitterness lying dormant ready to sprout; that we have not hidden a grudge away into the dark places of our mind. Forgiveness is such a powerful word whose energy ripples through the...
To Be or not to Be
Published
When we were born again and sealed with the Holy Spirit, God looked on us in a different manner for we were clothed with the righteousness of Christ. And being born of the Spirit, the life of Christ was born into out hearts. It is here that we often...
Bearing Abundant Fruit
Published
Our problem is “How do we produce this good fruit? Firstly we must remain in the vine – we are the branches that have been grafted into the vine. Jesus is the vine we are the branches. Secondly our focus is on growing and drawing our...
Seeking Gods Direction
Published
Seeking Gods will for your life can be one of the most frustrating searches that you may ever encounter. Trying to find an outlet for the gifts and ministry that you believe God has given you can be fraught with tears and anger. Knowing the direction...
Living a Life of Holiness
Published
On the one had we have the command to be Holy, but on the other hand we reason how can we be holy like God? We read in the scriptures, that the creator of heaven and earth, there is no one like him, as he is above all things. We also know that the...
Be Careful; Words are Important
Published
Today the English language is being destroyed in countries where English is the major tongue. There was a time, not too long ago when the English language, vocabulary and grammar were taken seriously. Letters were written in a beautiful long hand with...
The Richness and Affluence of Gods Glory
Published
The other night the Lord showed me his Glory. All week I knew that my blog for the next insertion would be about Gods glory as the Lord had indicated this to me at the beginning of the week. I must confess that I had not taken much notice of this...
A Good Soldier of Christ Jesus
Published
The battle lines of this world are becoming more and more obvious as the days go by. There is no need to outline the plummeting decline in moral standards over the past 10 years. One does not fail to notice the appalling destruction that our youth are...
I am Ashamed at Easter
Published
I am also disappointed and sad and at times despondent. Easter is the pinnacle, the holy celebration of our faith. For the cross, as explained in the scriptures, is the reason that Jesus was born into this world. God has sacrificed his Son to save us...
Where has the Cross Gone?
Published
When we talk of the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, how many believers today really understand the full meaning of that act on Calvary? How many believers have wrestled with the truth of the Cross? How many Christians know anything about the cross?...
Two Sundays in March
Published
What a contrast between the two Sundays; what a turn around in six days. From absolute exhilaration, for gloom and despondency. The Palm Sunday crowd were full of enthusiasm, for Jesus was to be their King who would restore their fortunes. He would...
How will the return of Jesus affect you?
Published
Can I predict that when Jesus returns almost all of mankind, at least 99.9% will be aghast at who they see as the returning Jesus. They will stand with their months open at the sight of the returning Son of Man. In most instances they will not...

Gods Spirit is leaving the Visible Church
Published
If I am correct with remembering my church history studies from college, the visible church went through a large number of metamorphoses. These transformations were ignited by Martin Luther with his Ninety-Five Theses nailed to the door of the Castle...
I am making a Highway of Holiness
Published
God’s heart goes out to his children who have fallen into the deep shadows of life. In today’s world the enemy has been active amongst Gods children and has sown his evil into the very hearts of those that confess to trust in God. I am...
