Ears To Hear

The shock, confusion and disbelief experienced by Jesus’ shattered disciples immediately after His death on the Cross must have been immeasurable. Drawing from our own human experience we can only imagine the questions that went through their minds and the sense of utter despair they must have felt. Imagine, if you can, Nathanael¹, poignantly recalling … Continue reading Ears To Hear

The Priests, the Politician and the Patriots

Once there was a very proud nation that had been richly blessed by God.  The nation’s founders had enshrined allegiance to the one true God within its laws.  Furthermore, the nation’s children were educated to study, respect and adhere to their nation’s founding values.  This nation had once fought mighty battles, conquered enemies and become … Continue reading The Priests, the Politician and the Patriots

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

THE LAMB Part One

Image supplied by Heartlight.org The year is AD96 or thereabouts.  The location is Patmos, a remote island-prison outpost of the mighty Roman Empire.  The ageing Christian apostle John has been exiled and imprisoned on the island because of, in his words, “the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ.” In worship John hears … Continue reading THE LAMB Part One

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)

A Day In The Life Of……

Personal Update: Hello Friends, I'm aware B for B posts have become less frequent over recent months.  Some of you know my husband and I have an adult son with some very complex health needs with whom we are highly involved.  A close relative has been undergoing treatment for a serious health issue and the … Continue reading A Day In The Life Of……

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

A Kingdom Of Priests

  While much of organised Christianity continues fortifying kingdoms of men, behind the scenes the Holy Spirit has strategically and quietly been preparing a company of believers dedicated solely to the expansion of the Kingdom of God on earth. Let’s backtrack a little.  From the beginning God has desired a human priesthood.  Essentially, the first … Continue reading A Kingdom Of Priests
