Dive into psalm 108

If you don’t know a song get your Bible out and sing the psalms. I have not been involved in the churches for over 10 years now, so don’t know any of the popular songs. But there is a whole book of them already printed for us. hehe […]

Comet Emmanuel

What message did Comet Neowise convey to us? To those who have been watching and who have an ear to hear and an eye to see the Comet brought a message of good news. But to those who refuse to repent it brought news of impending judgement. This […]

Comet Neowise’ July appearance

C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) or Comet NEOWISE A few weeks ago I asked a prophetic friend whether he thought this comet meant anything special since it has a long orbit of 7,000 years? He said he had no specific revelation about it.   This long orbit comet passed over […]

The time of Hilkias

I saw in a dream a hand slide the pointer to the time of Hilkias. I awoke with “the time of Hilkias” on my mind. I know that in the KJV Isaiah is called Isaias…so Hilkias is Hilkiah. Hilkiah was a High priest and the father of Eliakim… […]

A baptism of fire

Rather than a baptism of fire being some physical manifestation that happens to you in a Pentecostal meeting such as shaking, laughing, crying etc this is what I believe the baptism of fire is. Tribulation and affliction. Below our Lord Jesus shared what was going to happen to […]

Be a trumpet for God

Hey do not forget that Pentecost is not a Christian thing…it is the second major Feast in the year for Israel commanded by God in the Law. The three main Feasts -Passover-Pentecost-Tabernacles. (Lev 23 and Num 28&29) Yet as Christians we have been grafted into the Israel of […]

Those who are quiet in the land

Those who are plotting and devising evil against those quiet ones dwelling in the land shall find that God stands up against them to vindicate and protect His children. Those ones who are too strong for the quiet ones and too clever–are not stronger than the LORD and […]

Encouragement for today

I wanted to encourage believers in Christ today…well actually I just started to speak and thought I was going to speak about the latest pandemic stuff, but then the Lord Jesus took me another direction…I am glad He did! And then after preaching this I spoke about Ask […]

Allow Him to help you

As Christians we know that our heavenly Father God chastens us so we may share in His holiness. This chastening is not pleasant! All the things we go through, the pressures we are subjected to in daily life, whether through our choices or the choices of others around […]

God’s care for you

Nearly a month ago I was prompted by the Holy Spirit to write a note for a Chinese national who manages an Avacado packing shed in our area. It was Sunday 29th December, I had to go to a certain Avocado farm to pick up the remaining empty […]

The last day of the Feast

Monday 1st October –tomorrow, is the 8th or last day of the Feast of Tabernacles which is the Third great Feast instituted by God in the Old Testament. It is the day on which Jesus stood up in the Temple and cried out in a loud voice “If […]

A Dry Tree

How many times have you been in the place of dryness and cried to the Lord over your own barrenness? There are seasons in God or in life where it seems that we are a dry tree producing no fruit….that all we are good for is the fire. […]

A coal from the fire

Our God is a CONSUMING FIRE and what do you think He consumes? Flesh. All that is a stumbling stone to us His fire –He Himself–consumes so that it is gone from us. When Jesus was offered up as a sacrifice for our sin it was in fulfillment […]

Outer versus Inner

Most Christians are familiar with the story of God sending Samuel to anoint one of Jesse’s sons as the next king of Israel. The old prophet went to Bethlehem and one by one Jesse, the proud father of 8 sons, paraded 7 of them before Samuel’s eyes. And […]

Being God to others

The other day I was about to reach for the door handle at my work place when it opened abruptly and one of the other truck drivers got a fright when he saw me standing there unexpectedly. He actually blurted out a blasphemy: “Jesus!”Then he said, ” Yeah, […]

Eternity in the Bible

I first read Gerry Beauchemin’s book about 6 or 7 years ago and it confirmed in my spirit what my heavenly Father had been trying to show me. The internal contradiction of a loving heavenly Father who threatens us with eternal rejection if we do not obey Him […]

Because you say you see

One of those conundrums the Lord presents for us to ponder. Joh 9:39  And Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.”  Joh 9:40  Then some of the Pharisees […]

Two resurrections to come

After what I wrote yesterday I think I better clarify some things. I am not one to evade certain scriptures. Everything must fit together somehow in God’s purposes for mankind and I seek Him for that purpose not only so I can be a part of what He […]

Sons of God are without fault

Rev 14:4  These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.  These ones that follow the Lamb wherever He goes. […]

Speaking the truth in love

A very common but ugly attitude in Christian circles is displayed when someone tells some hard truths to another person and feels justified in doing so by using Paul’s admonition to “speak the truth in love”. Brother you are behaving badly! Brother you are an angry person! Brother […]

There is a Rock

A few weeks ago I did one of my spontaneous bail-outs. I went fishing down the coast but then drove further to surf at another spot followed by fishing again in the evening at another spot. I caught nothing. I got pummelled pretty good in the surf until […]

HE HAS YOU

I know absolutely nothing! I am absolutely a nobody. Yet God is with me all the time, working in me mightily by His power. I fail everyday in many ways. Yet my Saviour has me in His hug of love. He says, “This being hard on yourself has […]

Recognize Christ

The Apostle Paul was a faith preacher.(1Ti2:7) He was given the message of grace to preach to the Gentile nations so that we may “receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Jesus Christ”. (Acts 26:18) This was the charge or […]

A Good Conscience

I have been looking at Paul’s words in first Timothy for the last four posts. In the first verse he tells us that he was called according to the commandment of God.That charge or mandate from Jesus was to preach the Gospel of Grace in order to turn the hearts of the Gentiles from darkness to light, from Satan to God, that they might receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who believe. Acts 26:15-18

Let Jesus lift you up

For those who have felt the paralysing effect shame has upon the soul I offer this post. The son of Jonathan was Mephibosheth the grandson of King Saul who had tried for years to kill David. Mephibosheth means ‘Dispeller of Shame’. Not only does this boy’s name cover him […]

A yoke of bondage

As we grow in Christ we are learning to walk by faith and to not be entangled again in the bondage of the Law. In the early days of the Church of Jesus Christ there were some believers who were being circumcised in order to be justified before […]
