Being human is not a sin

Those wonderful lyrics above from Canadian singer songwriter Gordon Lightfoot carry deep meaning in view of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how it has been distorted. It seems that the best preachers and prophets are not inside the institution called the church but are outside it’s walls. […]

Hang in there, this will end

I was present at all of my four children’s entrance into the world. I watched over my wife. I held her hand…and she held mine(very tightly at times!) I groaned with her and she travailed in labor pains to bring forth each one of our precious children. Now […]

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 […]

Meek and Lowly in heart

When Jesus said, “learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart,..” He was describing Father’s heart for us. Father’s heart is gentle, humble, meek and mild, base, cast down, humble, of low degree (estate), and  lowly. In fact His heart has an attitude of one […]

All the lost shall be found

Reading Luke chapter 15 fills us with hope, what a wonderful Saviour is Jesus who never stops searching for the lost sheep UNTIL He finds them and carries them on his shoulders all the way home to the Father. 4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if […]

Does many mean all?

It is amazing how the blinkers blind us from what the Bible clearly says. When we have preconceived ideas about God’s Salvation we have already decided how many people are going to be saved. Yet Scripture clearly tells us that Jesus is the Savior of all men, yes, […]

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, […]

How will anything change?

At 4am sitting on my forklift and my truck driver co worker is telling me how bad the world is. Truck drivers spend a lot of time thinking whilst they do long hours on the highway. I said that I hoped it would change eventually to which he […]

Jesus’ Hebrew name is YESHÛ‛ÂH ישׁוּעה

Every time a Jew reads their Hebrew Scriptures they have 78 chances to see JESUS name shouting out at them. Jesus’ Hebrew name is YESHÛ‛ÂH ישׁוּעה H3444 ישׁוּעה yeshû‛âh I HAVE EXCHANGED THE TRANSLATED ENGLISH WORDS  WITH THE HEBREW  YESHÛ‛Â Perhaps the Holy Spirit of God will open […]

Surrender to God?

Over the years I have suffered many days and weeks..years in fact as I am sure many Christians have. The suffering I refer to is in the mind as a result of putting  self down when we fall or think we have failed in some way.  The world […]

Jesus is declaring Father

Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the only life you have and His life is bound up with that of the Father for there is only One Life. There is only One life for there is only ONE GOD- The Father…without Father there is no Jesus and without Jesus […]

A man named Zacchaeus

Zacchaeus was a chief tax collector and rich. Jesus knew his name. Zacchaeus was a short man trying to make himself a big man. Jesus knew his name. As a tax collector there was no doubt that he took more than was legal to take. As a tax […]

You are Adam no more

Listening to grace preachers has made me realise that they are leaving their sheep in Adam under a covering they call grace. They talk about God giving us grace that covers all our sin and shame and our past. The congregations sing these same ideas in worshipful ways […]

Unknown Known

No eye has seen No ear has heard The things God has prepared For those who love Him… These things are freely received By the heart that is One with Jesus.   What I did not know What I did not see He has become One with me. […]

Day of outrage is coming

A little Jewish boy who appeared like all other Jewish boys played near his family home. He jumped and skipped, ran and fell, cried and laughed like all other little boys. His mother and father taught him the Scriptures and he was accustomed to going to the local […]

You want me don’t you

The blind only see what they want to see The deaf only hear what they want to hear The hungry man eats but is not satisfied The wealthy never have enough Naked women rule the minds of millions But Money mocks God and says, “I am Queen!” Grasping […]

He saved others

This is just a quick little blog about the Life that we have in us. The Life that we have received is the Life of Jesus the Messiah. His Life is not something separate from Himself. He is The Life. If we have Jesus we have life, if […]

Confess crazy things

The same brother asked another question – here is it is and my response. Thank you Dennis, for your mail. I read it several times and experienced it as fresh water on dry soil. I think many of the Christians around me want to see a stronger interaction […]

Enmity Abolished

Jesus is a Peacemaker – Literally. He took Jew and Gentile into Himself when He hung upon the cross and made One New Man from the two. There is a war that has raged in the earth since the fall of mankind between Law and Grace. The two […]

The Law is for sinners

In this passage Paul lays out many things against those who are going astray and he uses the words like: charge, commandment, law, lawfully, command. We are normally told that Paul is exhorting us to keep with the old testament commandments but it is the opposite that Paul is teaching to believers. Let’s look into this chapter to see what is going on…

Stop trying to be holy

He did not make us righteous so that we would turn around and say, ‘Thanks Lord, I am righteous so now I am going to try really hard to stay righteous’. No! We are made righteous and holy so we can REST from all our self effort.

Ages to come

In the last post on this topic I looked at the change of ownership that has happened inside of the believer so that we are turned right way up no longer serving the lusts of the flesh. I looked at  Eph 2:1-6. I want to look at the […]

Lift up your burnt sacrifice

Morning and Evening Israel were to offer a burnt offering to the LORD. The Burnt offering rises as a soothing aroma to the LORD. It speaks of the righteousness and perfection of Jesus Christ Himself. Jesus was crucified at 9am, the time of the morning burnt offering and He died at 3pm as the evening burnt

At your wits end?

Our lives can sometimes seem to swing so far from the centre that we get terrified and lose all hope of finding our way back again.  We are all different and I don’t pretend to know why other people swing out wide on their particular journey. But I believe that God has all of our ups and downs in 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 […]

Are you a “good” Christian

Are you a good Christian? What is a good Christian? Well most would say that a good Christian is someone whose life is patterned after Jesus Christ. They help the poor, they pray, they go to church regularly, they tithe to the Church, they give offerings to missions, they are good people. Is that it?

Are we righteous enough?

I normally write from the perspective of oneness with Jesus Christ, in all that He is I am….however that is strong meat. God wants us to journey with Him in our understanding and faith. We are free to camp where we are,and not move at all though Father […]

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 […]
