The Testimony of Jesus and the Spirit of Prophecy

  Then he said to me, “Write, ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb’”.  And he said to me, “These are true words of God.”  Then I fell at his feet to worship him.  But he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of … Continue reading The Testimony of Jesus and the Spirit of Prophecy

Q and A: Covid-19, The Church, And God’s Judgment

Recently I was asked to comment on whether COVID-19 restrictions on churches could be a sign of God’s judgment on the western institutional church, given that many churches have had to limit or cease usual Sunday services.  In relation to this, 1 Peter 4:17 was referenced: For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and … Continue reading Q and A: Covid-19, The Church, And God’s Judgment

“So Where Do You Go To Church?”

“So where do you go to church?” A seemingly innocent question, and one that will be familiar to followers of Jesus Christ. But if, like me, you’re one of the growing number of believers who choose to refrain from participation in traditional local church life, it’s too often a question that sets alarm bells ringing. … Continue reading “So Where Do You Go To Church?”

To Whom Shall We Go?

Into every life there comes at least one crucial watershed moment.  Moments where the soul is sifted and the true motivations of our hearts are revealed.  Moments when events align around us that will require hard choices and ultimately determine our destiny.  It is my belief the slowing down currently caused by the world-wide coronavirus … Continue reading To Whom Shall We Go?

So You Want To Go Back To Normal

Coronavirus.  I doubt there’s a single person reading this it hasn’t impacted.  Many of us are reeling at the extent and speed with which the world around has changed, dramatically, within what seems like a nano-second.  It’s mind boggling, isn’t it! Everywhere I turn – internet, TV news, social media, family discussion – the question … Continue reading So You Want To Go Back To Normal

THE LAMB Part Three

  If we are Christ-followers, we live our earthly lives contending with a world system that violently opposes the authority of the King and Kingdom we serve (Jn. 15:19). In this world, authority is synonymous with ‘’greatness’’. Nations demonstrate their greatness through displays of military and economic might. Leaders boast openly about their nation’s greatness … Continue reading THE LAMB Part Three

Resurrection’s Child (From The Archives)

It is one thing to believe that Christ has risen.  It is another thing to believe that we have risen.  It is one thing to believe He has defeated death.  It is another thing to believe that in Him we also have defeated death.  I am not referring here to going to Heaven when this … Continue reading Resurrection’s Child (From The Archives)

The Perfection Of Weakness

    There’s a misconception, a lie if you like, that is pervasive within modern Christian church culture.  At one time I was fully immersed in it; maybe you have been also.  It goes along these lines:  ‘’As Christians we are called to be strong, authoritative personalities who know what we’re about, face every challenge … Continue reading The Perfection Of Weakness

Why Trouble The Woman?

Before gender equality became written into our laws, before #metoo and #churchtoo, long before the time’s up movement and the current “he said, she said” media frenzy, there was a time in human history when man and woman lived together on this planet in perfect harmonious co-existence. When God introduced the first woman (Hebrew “Íshshah”) … Continue reading Why Trouble The Woman?

IDOLS IN THE TEMPLE Part 4: The Tithe (B)

(This is part B of a two-part study.  It is recommended you read Idols in The Temple Part 4: The Tithe (A) first). In Part A of our study on tithing, we examined some faulty foundations frequently used to justify the practice of paying tithes.  Tithe teachers will tell us that tithing is a form … Continue reading IDOLS IN THE TEMPLE Part 4: The Tithe (B)

IDOLS IN THE TEMPLE Part 4: The Tithe (A)

The preacher’s face reddened as he belted out his favorite (some said his only) Sunday morning message.  With Bible held high and voice rising, he loudly reminded the congregation of our duty to faithfully bring the whole tithe (with emphasis on w-h-O-l-e) into the storehouse. Not to do so was to commit that gravest of … Continue reading IDOLS IN THE TEMPLE Part 4: The Tithe (A)
