When two become one

My Father(God)has been really ministering to my heart lately. I have come to a place in my soul where I have stopped trying to make it happen and have cast myself upon Him. Something I have been hearing through all sorts of different sources is that we cannot […]

Vanity

Tenielle Neda Vanity: Time goes on You can chase it but it’s moving on If you listen you can hear its song Trying to reach you through the darkest night Money talks You can taste it it’ll take your life If you hold it to your heart too […]

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 […]

Kingdom of heaven

This is not a long post–just a comment really–a statement maybe. I hear a lot of talk about what it will be like in heaven. The thinking is that heaven is a place where we shall all go to one day. Yet have we considered that all of […]

More on healing lameness

When we read Hebrews 12 on chastening we realise that as a Hebrew writer the author knows well the Hebrew Bible. It has been said that the New Testament is the explanation of the old–this is true. The Old gave us types and shadows the New gives us […]

Receive the Holy Spirit

It is winter Down-under. Where I live we have mild winters with overnight temperatures rarely getting down to 0°c. The room temperature can be a bit uncomfortable though if we do not have some sort of heating system. In this rented house we enjoy a slow combustion wood […]

When Joshua and Caleb returned from spying out the land they said in faith “We are well able to take the land”. But the other 10 leaders who went on the spying mission gave a bad report saying we definitely are not able to arise against these people […]

Can you hear grace?

I read a lot of “Christian” teaching that tells us to make sure we are keeping God’s Ten Commandments. They seem to think that a Christian is still under the Law of Moses. Can you hear the message of Grace? Abraham was imputed as righteous simply because he […]

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 […]

Levels of knowing

There are different levels of knowing. I know many people by their reputation only. Mar_6:14 Now King Herod heard of Him, for His name had become well known. And he said, “John the Baptist is risen from the dead, and therefore these powers are at work in him.” […]

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 […]

Tactics of Victory

We are all called to overcome even as Jesus overcame and sat down in triumph over His enemies. God in His loving wisdom has put us into a fight which is a fight of faith. The battle has of course been won already at the Cross…yet Jesus is […]
