Solid teaching - what is that?

In Gods providence the year 1517 was the beginning of an out pouring of Gods spirit that could not be stopped as Martin Luther’s radical, or as the Roman church labelled it, heretical thoughts set fire to the church in Europe. Up till this time...
Thoughts on Being Still, if even for a few minutes.

Be still says the Lord for this is the only way that you will hear my voice. In the coming days of fear, anxiety and depression among the peoples of your town or city there will be believers who will be calm and composed. Why? Because God has been in...
The Good Shepherd's call to all Bloggers
Published
I am the shepherd who cares for his sheep, other shepherds have come to care for my sheep but they only plunder and kill my sheep with their flashy clothes and cheap smiles. They love to hear the sound of their own voices and they like to be seen and...
Gods answer to our difficulty in Praying.
Published
Since my last blog on why we have so much difficulty with prayer and a general lack of understanding concerning prayer, God has been teaching me certain aspects of prayer that he wishes me to pass on to the CB family. I am still in Luke 11 where my...
Why do we find prayer so difficult?
Published
One of the most essential tools that a believer will need to have as we go into the last days is an effective line of communication to God. Prayer; talking to God and asking him for his assistance is still a great stumbling block for many sincere...
Woe betide those of you who are stiff-necked
Published
As I was pondering my next blog I was convinced that one that I had written some weeks ago, and which God has over-ridden in my desire to blog it; its time had come. But to my surprise and annoyance I cannot find this blog in my saved docs. file....
God is Holy – what does this mean?
Published
There are numerous mentions in the scriptures that God is Holy; in fact there are over 30 references. There are many more passages that indicate the Holiness of God. But are we clear in our minds what this holiness means? For most believers it is just...
Holiness for 2013, anybody?
Published
When the Lord ask me to write on holiness for this blog I was not too worried as I knew what the subject matter would consist of; after all to be holy as God is holy is to do Christian things and live a life that tries to please God. One prays and...
Daily Bible Verse: 1 Corinthians 2:4-5
Published
This verse has come at the correct time as Gods timing is also exquisite for this is the exact topic that many bloggers have been blogging about. Far too many church leaders are parroting the words in their sermons and scriptural writings that copy...
Today’s Church has Lost the 1st Love
Published
After I have finished my last blog from Revelation I was prepared to move on and sought the Lord for guidance as to where my thoughts and focus should be. God said to me one word “Love” My mind went straight to 1 Corinthians 13, the great...
Can we [attempt to] define faith?
Published
If we look at the faith chapter in Hebrews 11 one has to admit that faith as defined by the ancients comes with an underlying aspect of Obedience. Look at Noah who was told to build an ark – so he went and built an Ark on dry land, far from any...
Daily Bible Verse: 1 John 4:18
Published
If we are anxious, if we are concerned and worried, if we are unsure of our standing with God we have fear in our hearts and the Love of God has not yet permeated into our inner-most being. Once we surrender all and cling to God as a drowning person...
Daily Bible Verse: Hebrews 6:10

God expects us to make our salvation secure and he is watching to see that we do not fall away as we have been enlightened and tasted of the heavenly things; the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age. We must not become lazy and...
The 4 pillars essential of our Faith

God’s strategy for coping with persecution
Published
This blog was not meant to be about Revelation as I had decided that two blogs were enough and I had already written my next blog which I mentioned in my Persecution blog. But God had other ideas and he would not let me proceed until I had taken a...
Persecution is Coming
Published
When I wrote my last blog from revelation 12 I had hoped that would be the end of Revelation. But God, despite him knowing that I had avoided this book for years would not let me go and kept nudging me into the next chapter. I even tried to fool God...
Gee wiz wasn’t the birth of Jesus a P.R. disaster
Published
As I was reading Luke’s account of the birth I was struck at how ‘low key’ this birth ways for the Son of God. God who had revealed himself in grandiose ways in the Old Testament to the Israelites using various names. A God who...
Have you allowed the Accuser to get under your skin?
Published
God has drawn my attention to Rev 12. At first I resisted this drawing as the book of Revelation “scares” me as there is so much controversy over its interpretation and I did not want to be part of that. But God keep nudging me back to...

Be careful that we do not erect Idols

The book of Hebrews has become one of my better treasured books in the New Testament. The book contains gems of spiritual truth that give us an anchor for our walk in the last days, coupled with the heroes of faith that we would do well to dwell on...
Are we walking with Open Eyes in these Last Days?

As the end times approach we can be certain of some things that will take place. Life as we know it will change. The things that we have relied on to see us through the years and guide us will be no longer assist us.. The traditions that have stood...
