Den Rhodes

a son of the most high...a servant of all....the least of you...a branch in the vine....a temple of Life....a warrior of Light....a hearer....a seer....a friend....always being renewed....faithful. A lover of Mankind, willing to speak the truth to all. No respecter of persons.
Bottom line for me is that you dear one are my brother or my sister--you have been created by God in His image and whether you realise it or not, God loves you and has reconciled you to Himself through the death and burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
You will see and accept this great gift to you one day.
Those who think they are great shall be brought low
Those who are low shall be exalted
God shall do this and does indeed do it.
Beware if you live in a nation that thinks of itself as GREAT for you and your whole nation shall be brought VERY LOW.
Beware if you live in a nation that trusts in man-made weapons of war and makes human power it's strength.
That nation shall be brought down to the dust of humiliation.
Also
Beware if you are one that seeks to destroy the innocent-those who have done you no wrong. You shall not getaway with it--for there is One who knows all that you have done.
In the Resurrection soon to come, you shall be made to serve those you have wronged in this age.
You see I am set by God over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to pull down, To destroy and to throw down, To build and to plant. (Jer1:10)
You come to against us with your weapons of destruction always seeking to control and to dominate the innocent in the land--those whom God is not judging.
I say to you--BEWARE --for the LORD knows those who are His and He shall repay into your bosom what you have done to His children.
REPENT of this your wickedness---RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST into your heart this day--right now. 

The Apocalypse is glorious

What comes into your mind when you read the word apocalype…or apocalyptic? There is much talk in the world about a Doomsday. Writers associate the “end of the world” and “Doomsday” with the word Apocalypse. Making Apocalypse to mean doomsday or the end of the world has been […]

Word shall prevail

Today’s Mass Media are reporting that Australian PM Scott Morrison is pushing for action against online terrorism and so called propaganda. What they really mean by this Orwellian statement is the exact opposite! It seems that people are unable to think these days if they believe the narrative […]

For WE are the circumcision

My brother Paul would not be popular in today’s Christian churches….in fact he isn’t popular. You see, Paul opposed those from his old camp at every turn and at every city he came to. Anyone advocating a return to law keeping in order to be justified was Paul’s […]

I am a river going forth

The One dwelling in Jesus goes forth with Jesus as a mighty flowing river of Life. I am a river going forth filled with Life and goodness. I am a river flowing forth from the Throne of Heaven. Everywhere I go the river goes for the River and […]

Yeshua our Passover

I put this video together tonight. This week J*w*sh people mourn the 9th of Av events which have happened throughout their history. Oh that eyes would be opened to see the One Who took the penalty for sin upon Himself that they may have Life. Zechariah 12:10  “Then […]

I AM LIKE GOD

I am right, you are wrong!  Such a statement stirs people up one way or the other. It comes from the mind of the flesh which dwells inside of the lie that God knows good and evil. I am bad!! I am good!! Such self definitions also come […]

Kept for Salvation

We can tend to get a bit anxious when our eyes and minds tell us that there is nothing happening.The Lord is amazing how He teaches us isn’t He? I was mulling over the questions “Why are we here? What is the Lord doing with us?” and what […]

A mother’s heart breaks

She sat in her cheap little car parked up against the tall wire mesh fence that ringed the football ground. Her son was playing a game of football in there…but she was parked outside the ground. Jesus noticed her(that is me and Jesus as one–cos that is who […]

A Vietnam Vet I met

Our lemon tree has produced a bumper crop this winter here in Western Australia. So rather than let them go to waste, I picked a laundry basket full and put them on the front verge of our rented home so that anyone passing by might take some home […]

The way to please God

We know that without FAITH it is impossible to please God- Heb 11:6 Also that anything that is not from faith is sin. (Rom 14:23) Thus it is established that to please God we must walk in faith. If on the other hand we attempt to be pleasing […]

TWO OPINIONS

The prophet Elijah’s declaration and question to the congregation during the reign of Ahab and Jezebel is still very relevant for us today. I hear this prophetic call deeply and strongly in my gut! I am moved with His passion for His bride today! 1Ki 18:21 And Elijah […]

Father is carrying us

Verses to ponder in regards to what I share in this video John 5:19 Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also […]

What God has cleansed

“But a voice from heaven answered a second time, ‘What God has cleansed, no longer consider unholy.’ Act 11:9 nasb It must be said –What God has cleansed we are not to consider or to declare unclean! What God has made holy, we are not to make unholy […]

It is finished

23 Now the God of peace Himself makes you fully and completely holy, your spirit and soul and body are entirely blameless, kept and watched over, inside of the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 The One calling and summoning you is faithful, who also does this. […]

The Two Trees

There were two trees in the garden of Eden that presented a choice to our first parents. The tree of Life and the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God clearly spoke about NOT eating from the latter tree. Death would be the result of feeding […]

My Word that goes forth

Our Father is one very determined person. He rests fully inside the certain knowledge that His Word shall not fail. We know that His Word is Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Jesus is the very Word of Father made flesh. Yet also that same Word, Jesus,  is now manifested […]

Shut out and shut in

A few weeks ago as I sat with Father I asked Him for a page number for a word from Him. Now this practice is not foolproof of course and may present the enemy with an opportunity to deceive me. But I trust my Father and test all […]

Though you die you live

We saw in the previous post that Jesus was presenting to Martha the reality of His NOWNESS versus the idea she had in her head of  a ‘one day in the future Messiah’.  Jesus is always I AM. I AM your resurrection! I AM your Life. Not one […]

The resurrection not heaven

The perceived Architecture of Christianity The general perception of the world and sadly many Christians is that the Pillars or supporting structures of Christianity are the belief in a Heaven and a Hell…places we go to when we die. But that is not true. Instead  a Person is […]

Did God really say?

If we are to understand the Bible we must see it through Paul’s Gospel. It was to the Apostle Paul that the mysteries kept secret were made known.  Then understand that the Apostle John spent years in Ephesus amongst the Christians taught by Paul. It was from soaking […]

Jesus Christ is come in the flesh

The Apostle John declared amazing things…a lot of which have been twisted by the unbelief inside Christianity. 1Jn 4:1  Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1Jn 4:2  By this […]

Dealing with oppression

It surprises me to learn that many Jesus believers do not sense any oppression from the spirit realm at all…ever. Perhaps it is how they are wired, perhaps it is to do with callings and giftings. As for me the spiritual realm is very tangible and real to […]

Driven out from rest

In Eden was a garden where Adam and Eve dwelt in communion with each other and with God. It was a paradise made by God for man. Gen 2:8  The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed.  […]

The true condition of all humans

Paul tells the believers at Ephesus exactly what the true condition of Mankind is. Note my blue highlights. Eph 2:1  To you Gentiles also, who were dead through your offences and sins, Eph 2:2  which were once habitual to you while you walked in the ways of this […]

A heart divided against itself

Here’s the deal. Your Heart is where the kingdom of God is. If your heart is divided against itself how shall it stand? Either make the tree good or make the tree bad. But not both!! Luk 11:17  But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them: “Every kingdom […]

Circumstance beyond our control

For about two weeks I have had snippets of lyrics from Chrissie Hynde “Back on the chain gang” come bubbling up in my thoughts. I have not heard the song in years so I finally searched for the whole song tonight. Now I can see the Lord’s quiet […]

United we stand

Have you heard the phrase– “United we stand – Divided we fall” ? This is true individually as well as corporately. The double minded person shall not receive anything from the Lord for he is unstable in all his ways. To solve this God has united our hearts […]

Ashes to Ashes

February 14, 2018 by Ink Well Ashes to Ashes Everyday I am covered by the blood A blanket to comfort my soul A clean sheet to start anew at every given moment that I draw breath, Our breath, His breath, His very self mingled with my own. Everyday […]

Some help in the battle

The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation Psa 27:1  A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? Psa 27:2  When the wicked came against me […]

words to comfort

In the shadow of your dreaming I arise inside of you. Like the golden dawn a new day rising like the mist or raging storm. I am with you in all your longings, I am in you as hand in glove. I share your heart and deepest longings, […]

Depart from me Lord

Peter told Jesus “Depart from me Lord for I am a sinful man”. Thus guilt and shame drives Jesus far away from our consciousness. Jesus death and resurrection was made to totally cleanse our hearts so that we would no longer carry any guilt or shame. No more […]

Jesus right now or not

There is no “going to heaven” to see Jesus–Jesus is in you right now–if you believe into Jesus. There is no “going to Hell”—Gehenna/Torment is right now–if you refuse to believe into Jesus Generation after generation of God’s children have lived their lives trying to be like Jesus […]

You are not alone

If you are a human reading this then I want to let you know that you are not alone. I am not talking about someone next  to you, or someone up in the sky either. I am talking about what it is to be human. To be human […]

A different seeing

In a dream last night I learned an important key regarding our born again heart. Yesterday I shot a little rambling video and when I watched it back after I posted it, I laughed and laughed at myself. I saw a different man than the man who used […]

Why they killed Jesus

John 10:33  The Jews answered Jesus, “We’re going to stone you to death, not for any good things you’ve done, but for dishonoring God. You claim to be God, although you’re only a man.”  Jesus of Nazareth, born in a manger in Bethlehem claimed to the Son of […]

The Joy of the Lord

The Joy of the Lord is my strength. We have all heard that familiar declaration which is what Nehemiah said to the children of Judah. Many times I have heard that same refrain from the pulpit and have myself said it in order to try to be joyful […]

Jesus dwells in my heart

Eph 3:17  that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; If Jesus dwells in my heart then I am His dwelling place and Temple of God If Jesus dwells in my heart then the whole house is clean My body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit […]

God does not know good and evil

We Christians do not realise that deep down inside we have certain ruling definitions out from which we think about God. These ruling definitions have been imbibed in us since birth and since the fall into darkness in the original garden. These definitions are tares among the wheat […]

Rejecting being His image

In Romans 1 Paul lays out what happened in the Garden and which continues to happen now in the descendants of those first parents. For having known God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful, but they became pointless in their thinking {a false story of […]

Who are the lawless ones?

Could it be that those who insist on keeping the Law are the lawless ones? Many accusations are thrown at people who preach Grace by the Law keeper section of the church. They love to quote the anomia word as in Matthew 7:23 and other places. It is […]

God does not envy

I am continuing to look at Paul’s words on Love as it is a description of the Father –The God Who is over all through all and in all¹…. The God in whom all people live, move and have their being² for all things are from Him, through […]

Paul’s amazing statements

The Apostle Paul was not taught his gospel by Peter or John or any other man…but the Lord Himself taught Paul by the revelation of the Spirit. Three statements among so many stand out to me that Paul had a huge picture of the love of God shown […]
