The 3 Forces of Darkness
Published
We are exhorted to walk as children of the light for we have been redeemed from darkness into his marvellous light. Those that walk in darkness are unable to taste and see the glorious blessings that God has planned for each individual person. This...
The Snobbery of Holiness
Published
There are many verses in the Bible, which we, the evangelical branch of the church have taken and applied a ‘superior air’ to their meaning. These verses have a ‘self-righteous taint given to them by well meaning, but over zealous...
There are 3 but one is more important
Published
When Christ ascended on high after fulfilling the requirements that satisfied Gods law he was seated at the right hand of God. It is from this position that he has been placed as ruler, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion. God has...
Look up for the King is near
Published
As we near the close of the age and the King is preparing to return, God is urgently calling through his prophecies, faithful watchman and those who walk in the spirit to be ready. In doing so the book of Hebrews is the book that the Holy Spirit will...
Use it or it will Rust
Published
What am I talking about? Did you guess it was Faith? God has given us faith to use, not bury it away and then wonder why we lack faith. I am reminded of the story of the disciples in the 100 year storm that lashed the Sea of Galilee as recorded in...
He holds the Future.
Published
My soul is singing tonight for I want to blog on a great truth that will still the anxious hearts as we look into the coming years. There is no question the economic status of the world is on the cusp of a collapse. There is mounting evidence that we...
Do we cry from Faith of Fear?
Published
When life deals us an upper cut that takes the wind out of our sails, do we turn to God for help out of panic or faith? Good question you may add, but there is a fine line between being anxious or confident in the future when we are gasping for...
Is our Testimony covered in Moss?
Published
My heart sings when I read of bloggers on this site who are able to testify to the goodness of God in their life. I want to lift up my heat and hands in praise of the loving kindness of our Father. To think that God, the creator of the universe, is...
How are we to live in this God Forgotten Land?
Published
As mentioned many times it does not take a rocket scientist to realize that the world is falling in on itself. There is moral decay, economic uncertainty, increasing strange weather events, and government intervention into our religious freedoms. What...
This is the most important question we have to face this year
Published
There are many questions that we must face in our life time – important decisions have to be made regarding ones career, ones place of abode, the person whom you will live with etc. Today is the day that another question must be faced and...
Let’s face it –there is only One Gospel
Published
To say that there are different gospels and to teach in this vane is a little miss leading as it is a partial truth. Do not all errors start this way? If we are agreed that the word Gospel in its simplest form is ‘good news’ then we can...
Have we lost this essential Blessing
Published
One of the top three blessings God can give us is his Peace. Yet why do I sense that this is the least of the blessings many of Christ’s followers are enjoying today. Why do I sense that many Christians today are afraid? Our divorce rate is the...
there is yet far much more to receive
Published
Count your blessings name them one by one – but can we? When was the last time that you knew God had blessed you? Today, last week, month , year, last; gee I cannot recall? Not only do we fall far short of Gods glory but we also fall far short...
Lesson 3 – the lost virtue
Published
This is really a continuation from my last blog “The snake spoke to me today.” ‘Tch’ hinted at this in his comment on that blog. The ability to exhibit patience has been lost by the majority of mankind in the western world....
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...
