Yom Kippur approaches

Yom Kippur begins tonight at sundown 18th Sept. In the days between Rosh Hashana- Jewish new year and Yom Kippur- observant Jews spend time repenting of their sins. These days are known as the days of Awe. This introspection is meant to bring a sense of awe and reverence...

The true vine

When Jesus declared Himself to be the TRUE vine he was contrasting Himself with the FALSE vine. Joh 15:1  “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.    The Vineyard of the Lord Destroyed Isa 5:1  Now let me sing to my Well-beloved A song of...

Earthquake nearby was 5.3

I was sitting in my home today and began to feel and or hear a low rumbling which grew stronger and louder like a train going past on tracks….only we do not have trains here. My wife was asleep from her nightshift at the Hospital, our dog was outside...

What does my life as a believer look like

Gal 2:19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by...

Receive the Holy Spirit

Part 1 By Dennis Rhodes  It is winter Downunder. Where I live we have mild winters with overnight temperatures rarely getting down to 0° celcius. The room temperature can be a bit uncomfortable though if we do not have some sort of heating system. In this rented house we...

You are not the old man

The Old man that you were before coming to Jesus lived under the Law of God. The Law stirs up sin and the result is condemnation and death. That is why the Old man was crucified in Christ. That Old man can never serve God in the new covenant....

See the Man and know Love

One look of His eyes is enough to cause the garden to flourish within your heart. One touch of His hand is enough  to heal a thousand wounds. Shame melts away in the presence of your King as He joyfully looks upon you in love. Let Him….. Desire only...

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 of...

A wise Kiwi answers

I read this answer to a despondent doubting brother on a forum today and loved it…It is by Oscarr in New Zealand “The Christian life consists of faith in what God has said about you in the Bible. What would be good for you is to go through the...

Death and Hades cast into the Lake of fire

If Death and Hades are to be cast into the Lake of fire which burns forever and ever, then all those souls in death and hades shall also be in that same fire forever and ever. Even if one may say, Death and Hades are not literal places but...

The Battle of faith

Something very important in this struggle we all go through is that we live by faith not by sight. And like God we call those things that are not as if they are. Rom 4. If we look at our selves through carnal eyes we do not see righteousness....

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 as...

The astounding verse of Scripture

The most astounding verse of Scripture in the Bible is found in an equally astounding Chapter. I am referring to John’s Gospel chapter 14 and specifically verse 20. It is a verse you should memorise and think upon, tossing it up and then digesting and tossing again. Ruminate on...

PREPTEMBER

The President of the United States has just issued a warning that September is national preparedness month. To be prepared for disasters and emergencies. His Presidential speech is below. In it Trump notes the disasters that have been occurring, which I highlight in red. They are the same caused...

Have you sold all?

For all those brethren who claim that we must keep the Law of God and obey Jesus let me ask you if you have obeyed Jesus commandment to “sell all you have and give to the poor”? Luke 18:22 NKJV So when Jesus heard these things, He said to...

Make no covenant with Nahash

There is a war going on which has been the case since the beginning. It is a war between Life and Death. The way this war manifests in the Church is that one side throws spears at the other and vice versa. One side accuses the other of being...

Poor and needy

Psalm 40:17 NKJV But I am poor and needy; Yet the LORD thinks upon me. You are my help and my deliverer; Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of God. The self righteous person excludes himself from the help/grace of God. Everyone is poor...

I am a lawful citizen of heaven

This a public declaration of sorts so that there is no doubt as to where I stand concerning the Law of God. As one who is a citizen of the Kingdom of heaven which is the Kingdom of Jesus Christ I am one who keeps the commandments of God...

The Gospel is all about NOW!

For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. Now, right now is the acceptable time to be saved from sin. Right now. And...

BABY BURNERS BEWARE!!!!

“For Topheth has long been ready, Indeed, it has been prepared for the king. He has made it deep and large, A pyre of fire with plenty of wood; The breath of the Lord, like a torrent of brimstone, sets it afire.” Isaiah 30:33 This weekend God Himself shall...

One World Government is the end goal

As many already understand the goal of the hidden puppet masters behind the visible institutions and politicians is a one world government and religion and economy. This is their goal. They have not given up on their ages old plan. At present we see sweeping the whole world a...

Rebellious forever and ever or not?

I believe in the inspired Word of God in the original languages but that does not mean the interpreters got everything right when they did their English versions. The following passage highlights the WRONG interpretation of ‘olam olam’ as forever and ever. Isaiah 30:8,9NKJV “Now go, write it before...

Follow up to ENMOD post

Following on from my post regarding climate control on August 13th I take note of the following report of 144 major earthquakes and volcanic eruptions recently. “Climate control is on all the time” was the message I heard in my spirit back on the 13th August. Michael Snyder —...

Famous Christian author believed all shall be saved

Mrs. Hannah Whitall Smith is famous for her book “The Christian’s Secret of a happy life” but thanks to dishonest editors most do not realise she came to believe in the salvation of all…Here is an excerpt from the missing chapters of her autobiography – “The Unselfishness of God”...

I create Jerusalem

Further to what I posted yesterday:– When the prophetic word rises in my heart like happened last night it is to encourage the saints…and for someone who has not been in a church service for 10 years I am very encouraged that He still encourages others through me. He...

Flee the false god

There is a false god that has captured the hearts of millions of Christians and it isn’t money. It is a god that punishes sin even though all sins have been forgiven. It is a god that is impossible to please no matter what you do. It is a...

God dug an open pit

Under the Law if a man digs a pit and does not cover it to make it safe, and an ox falls into it and is injured or dies that man must “make it good.” In other words that man is responsible to restore what he caused to happen....

Climate control

An annoying thing about Mercedes Benz cars from the late 80’s is that the Climate Control is constantly on…all the time!! The Engine control unit monitors the ambient temperature in the cabin and outside the cabin and commands the climate control to heat or cool the environment accordingly. My...

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 heaven...

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 he...

Don’t be entangled again

There has been a change of Covenant between God and man which is not based upon our ability to obey His laws but upon His promise. When we start being badgered into whether or not we are holy or whether or not we are being obedient to God we...

A STONE FELL OUT OF THE WALL

An interesting event happened on Monday in Jerusalem, Israel. A 79 year old Jewish woman was praying at her customary position against the southern section of the Western Wall of the remains of the Second Temple. At exactly 546 PM a large limestone block 8 metres above her fell...

Jesus my Wonderful Saviour

Maybe I am being a bit silly writing this, but you know what I don’t really care what anyone thinks. You see, I am a man. I work in a trucking yard with other men…manly men. Yet Jesus is real in me and He also is a manly man....

The Rainbow Promise

Gen 9:13 I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. When the Son shines through falling rain a colourful rainbow appears reminding us that it is the sign of the covenant God made with Noah...

God does not dwell in man-made temples

I lived in Jerusalem, Israel for six months in 1997 about 15 minutes walk from the Damascus Gate of the Old City. In those days like many other Christians before me and since I went to the Kotel (the Western Wall of the Temple) to pray, touching and facing...

Sin Gospel is no Gospel

Under the Old Covenant sin separated people from God, under the New Covenant sinners HAVE BEEN reconciled to God. Christians run around trying to get people to feel guilty for their many sins…but  God has ALREADY FORGIVEN the sins of the whole world through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus...

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, especially...

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, it...

To those who the called–Good.

Yesterday I heard the DJ on a Christian radio station give his little preach on Romans 8:28. You know one of those little preaches at the end of the News segment which is supposed to encourage you and me? These days I can barely listen to what passes as...

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 responded...

Hating sin and loving the sinner?

Contrary to popular belief God is not focused upon sin. Focusing upon sin in our own lives instead of our Righteousness causes us to judge others and even to hate!...

Corrective Services

The Father's judgments are merciful - meant for our good--for the correction of law breakers as opposed to the idea of punishment....

The end of an age

I get the sense that we are in between two ages–the outward church age and the inward age of Tabernacles. For two thousand years the church in her immaturity has tried very hard to be like Jesus. But that time is coming to end. I believe that I like...

In Hell Forever

Jesus died on the cross and went to Hell forever according to the thinking of the majority of my brothers and sisters. Let me slap you around the side of the head a bit.  🙂 Jesus used the story of Jonah being in the belly of the great fish...

Is God successful?

“God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself,” writes St. Paul. And Jesus said that He came to “seek and to save the lost (or perished)” Did He succeed? He cried out on the cross “Father forgive them…” and “it is finished.” So was it? And did the...

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 had...

Hell is all pervasive

One of the biggest tares in the modern church , for the last 1500 years is the wrong translation of a few key words in Hebrew and Greek. I can already feel the oppression on my head from offended brothers and sisters as they pray “for” me! Never mind...

Trying hard to be righteous?

The people of the world will tell you that being a good person is all that is needed. They may even quote Jesus and say, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” and you shall surely be okay with God—right? Who needs to be a...

What is the best way to fall into sin?

I do not mean to incite a brother or a sister to sin I ask the question to expose the truth which I hope will help those who are stuck in sinful patterns. I write to born again Christians, those who love the Lord Jesus and have received His...

An immortal soul?

Traditions in the Church work against the truth of God keeping us in blindness and error. We all have them. One such tradition is the teaching of the immortal soul. A Biblical understanding of the make up of man is essential to understand salvation and how it is accomplished...

Sheol is the grave and that is all it is

This is the fifth part in a series: The destructive effects of Hell teachings by Dennis Rhodes. It’s about time the church of Jesus Christ stood up and said enough to the blasphemous message of eternal punishment in a literal burning fire. Those who call God Father yet imagine...

The destructive effects of Hell teachings part 4

In this fourth part we continue to look at Hell teachings. In the previous post we saw the first 9 times Jesus is said to say the word Hell when in FACT he does not use a word which literally means what most think is Hell but Jesus speaks...

The destructive effects of Hell teachings part 3

There are “good” reasons why Christians reject any talk against the teaching of eternal Hell for sinners. Each one of those reasons I would call a Tare which shall be gathered together and bound into bundles to be burned. That really is what I am doing here. I am...

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 who...

Heart within heart within heart

All worry about where you are at with God and His purposes vanishes away when you realise and accept and embrace this spiritual reality and FACT. John 14:20  At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.  There...

The destructive effects of Hell teachings – part 2

In this post I take a closer look at the many idols erected in the Valley of the sons of Hinnom.  As Jeremiah points out, the things that happened in that valley brought about God’s judgement and rejection. Jeremiah’s message here is a clear “type and shadow” showing that...

The destructive effects of Hell teachings

Fear of Hell is an insidious and destructive poison that controls and motivates millions of people. On my 50th birthday some years ago my heavenly Father(God) set me free from the torment of Hell. Even though I had been a born again Christian for 22 years at that time,...

Climate change? No it’s ENMOD

The UNITED NATIONS convention below was sourced from  HERE   The whole carbon emissions story is just that: A story. It is being spun by paid off “scientists” employed by the UN. The real reason for weather events is more sinister. You can read for yourself this UN convention below....

Blinded by choice

In 15 years we have been in churches 2 years. The whirlwind of the Lord turned us out towards the wilderness instead. In early January 1998 I was given a very clear dream in which the choice was made clear:- Stay in the church as it is or seek...

You are sanctified and holy

God’s ways are not our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.(Isa 55) This is especially true when it comes to understanding what He has done through the New Covenant. God is wanting many sons just like Jesus and by saying sons I include women in that...

You can only be yourself

Tonight on the “The Voice Australia ™” the judging panel told a contestant he needed to be more self assured because he is really talented. They said he needed to “be himself and not try to be someone else“. His reply was tremendous. I am being myself! This is...

Jesus is happy being you

You may not know this but Jesus is happy being you. He is happy walking about through life in this world as you. How can I say such a thing? Because that is the heart of the New Covenant God has made with us who believe in the Seed...

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 the...

Beware what you say about rulers

I guess in every age the body of people have had many reasons to speak evil of their rulers. Yet God says in His Law  “You shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people. Exo 22:28 NKJV According to Strong revile is the word qâlal which means: to be (causatively...

Resisting the authority

The Bible tells us that the authority that now exists is appointed by God. This simple statement of God’s mind is very clear. That means that if we live in a nation which is governed by a corrupt authority which oppresses it’s citizens that authority was APPOINTED BY GOD....

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 is...

A rebuilt Temple does away with Jesus

I notice that Israelis are comparing Pres. Donald Trump with King Cyrus saying that Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem being the capital of the world is the same as Cyrus’ calling to restore Jerusalem. One such Israeli group has minted a silver coin to commemorate Trump’s declaration on Jerusalem which he...

If it had not been the Lord who was on our side

Let Israel now say….If it had not been the LORD who was on our side. Can’t we all say that who have come to trust in the God of the SEED of father Abraham? Yes we certainly can my friend. Those who are in Christ are in Abraham’s SEED...

Psalm 142 a prayer in distress

Psa 142:1  A Contemplation Of David. A Prayer When He Was in the Cave. I cry out to the LORD with my voice; With my voice to the LORD I make my supplication. Psa 142:2  I pour out my complaint before Him; I declare before Him my trouble. Psa 142:3  When my...

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. Who...

God gives spirit, takes it away and gives it again

God is Spirit…therefore when He made mankind in His image and likeness…this must mean that man also is spirit. Jesus said that if you have seen Me you seen the Father….therefore Jesus is God’s manifestation or physical body. Jesus could do nothing of himself…the Father who dwelt in Jesus did...

Sons of God are not some exclusive group

Many claim that the term “sons of God” is reserved for a select group known as the Overcomers. I have been exposed to this idea for years and have written from that point of view before. But lately God has been setting me free from this prideful and elitist...

Sons of God set the prisoners free

Jesus is THE Son but God is bringing MANY sons to glory. One of the tasks God gives to his sons is to set the captives free even as elder Brother Jesus did. John 8:31  Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are...

Sons of God inherit the Kingdom

Are you a believer in Jesus Christ? Then you are a son of God. If you are a son of God? Then you are also an heir of God. You are counted as being in the SEED of Abraham. Therefore you inherit the promises made to our Father Abraham. Those who are of faith are the...

The rains are here

Thanks to the remnants of tropical cyclone Marcus we had a full day of rain yesterday- 26th March. Back on the 13th February a farmer had randomly told me that the Easter Lillies had sprung up from the ground meaning that it would rain in about 6 weeks time. We have...

Perfect law keepers

As I was meditating on the things of God while driving a work truck I began to think about Paul the Apostle’s claim of being blameless according to the Law. “Concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.” Phil 3:6B  He was blameless when it came to keeping...

Thank God for new converts

As I wrote about before, the Father led my steps to a desperate woman fleeing the drug culture. She was sitting on the pavement as her man was driven away by the police. She was 70 miles from her home without money or a vehicle and it was Christmas...

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 the...

You the lame beggar healed

After the Lord has been speaking to me recently and dealing with issues of bitterness in my heart I realised He has been speaking to me the same thing for years! So I posted the last post which was from January 2016. Yet even after that amazing revelation and...

Are you waiting to go to heaven?

I do not want to rain on your party but getting saved, being born again, believing in Jesus Christ is NOT all about dying and going to heaven. It is about knowing the Father and Jesus whom He sent, now in this life. Of course that is the whole idea–the whole...

Breaking word curses and vows

During times when we have failed miserably in some way the enemy presses us to speak in line with his accusations whispered into our minds. At those times and in those seasons of high stress we may have uttered word curses about ourselves in some area of life. You...

Saved and delivered

God does amazing things doesn’t he? On Christmas day we took a lost soul into our home. The police told me to “have nothing to do with these bad people”. He said that because he had dealt with her and her friends and family over many years. Notorious drug...

Chapter 4 More persuasion to receive

We have seen in the previous chapters that one must receive the Holy Spirit when they believe in Jesus Christ. We are not to assume that we have received the Spirit just because we believe in Jesus through a message from a preacher or a Bible tract etc. The...

Chapter 3 Speaking in tongues

2Ti 1:6 For this reason, I am reminding you to fan into flames the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands. In part one and two of this topic I laboured the point that “the Gift of God that is within us...

Chapter 2 The second experience

2Ti 1:6 Therefore I remind you to stir up(fan into a flame) the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 2Ti 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound...

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 heater-...

Trying hard to get where you are

Whenever I turn on the Christian radio I hear preachers exhorting the flock of God to try harder to be pleasing to God. They make a big deal about the responsibility being all ours. Whether it is to do with a thing called “the call of God” or with...

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 if...

Are you in the flesh?

I don’t know whether preachers still point at people and tell them they are “in the flesh”  these days as I have not set foot in a church service for over 7 years now. But back then and for a long time before that it was common to hear...

Fall into the ground

We know that Jesus was/is the grain of wheat that fell into the ground. He died and was buried in the ground. When He was raised up, it was so that He would live all those who believe in Him into life. We have believed in Jesus–the One who...

Let me preach the whole verse

I see that my brethren still preach half verses and this only keeps the blinders on. Let me give an example. I don’t know how many times I have had brethren throw half verses at me to convict me as guilty. Here is one of them. “It is appointed...

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 believed...

Who has bewitched you?

When Paul asked the Galatians “Who has bewitched you?,” he used a word not used any other time in Scripture.  The word he used tells us so much about why we so easily set aside the grace of God.  Gal 3:1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that...

Accursed things in the home

The following story is from a long diary type article I wrote about my ministry trip to Uganda in 2008. In it I talk about a Balinese religious(Hindu)mask that I tangled with and what happened. I worked in the Fisheries Department for the Western Australian Government. This job took me...

God’s Shoulds

A look at the use of the word SHOULD in the New Testament. Don’t let it scare you! I explain why. 1Jn 3:11 For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another, … The Bible can be a very condemning read if we do...

Righteous now by exchange

Just as I wrote in the previous post on Romans 6:8 that we live with God now not in some distant future after we have died….so again I want to look at another verse which my brethren put off to “in heaven when we die.” 2Co 5:21 For He made Him...

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...

The just shall live by faith

I heard a Christian song recently in which was sung “I will live my life for You.” It is this idea I want to investigate and preach on. Do we live our life for God? Almost all believers will say yes of course we do! Paul said in 2 Corinthians 5…...

Stop fighting for Israel

The church for the last 150 years or more has been like Jehoshaphat helping wicked king Ahab. Ahab was a wicked King of Israel. The church has been helping the wicked ‘Kings’ of Israel as well to further their Zionist agenda. King Ahab had convinced Jehoshaphat to go out...

God’s swearing habit

Lately the Holy Spirit has been bringing to my attention how God has a habit of swearing. For about a week now, phrases from Scripture would come floating by my mind without me trying to think them up.  The one I am impressed with is from Hebrews where the...

Be made ready

Exo 1:11 And they put over them slavemasters in order to afflict them with their burdens. Maybe it is a little presumptuous of me, but what is happening to me, I believe is prophetic of what is happening to many in God’s camp. The people of Israel had lived...

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 trees...

The purpose of the commandment

Yesterday we saw briefly that the Apostle Paul was given a commandment(epitage)from Jesus Himself to turn Gentiles from darkness to light through the preaching of the Gospel of grace. We saw that he goes on to tell Timothy, “to charge(paraggellō) some to preach no other doctrine”, and then says that “the purpose...

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...

Has the Law been set aside?

Heb 7:18 For on the one hand there is an annulling of the former commandment because of its weakness and unprofitableness, Heb 7:19 for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God. (NKJV) Heb...

Stop trying to be holy

If we  practice law living we point at ourselves with an accusing finger – not good enough – try harder! We cannot help but compare ourselves to others to see if we are keeping up appearances. The Devil laughs, for though we think we are getting more holy he...

Ages to come

Eph 2:6 And He raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Messiah Yeshua— Eph 2:7 to show in the olam ha-ba the measureless richness of His grace in kindness toward us in Messiah Yeshua. TLV I really like how this version translates the...

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 in...

The lame shall leap like Naphtali

Why the Deer? While in a time of prayer on the 5th January 2016 the Lord revealed to me that I am descended from the tribe of Naphtali. Whether God means that I am physically descended or He is using it as some spiritual metaphor so that I will...

Don’t agree with the accuser

It is the Accusers job to accuse us- It is up to us to refuse to agree with him. The most ferocious battle you will ever encounter I believe, is against the “Accuser of the brethren”. “…for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before...

Whose report will you believe?

If you are a Christian then you have most likely heard the question in the Title before. Whose report will  you believe? It is taken from the story in Numbers 13 of the twelve spies Moses sent into Canaan to spy out the land. Ten of the twelve spies...

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 would...

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 waiting...

Eternal

Almost every time you read eternal in most Bibles you are reading a translation error. Does that scare you? The Greek word aion means an age of time…and it’s adjectives like aionios and aionian like all adjectives, describe the noun…they describe the age of time.   The words Eternity and eternal...

World

The word ”WORLD” appears 203 times in the KJV. Aion means age, yet the translators used world. This has caused needless confusion!! Time has a beginning and an end, and is broken up into different ages or aeons. Eternity is not about time. The World is not going to end-...

God shall complete His tapestry

In God’s reality the tapestry is already complete, it only awaits fulfillment in time and space…in other words, our reality. Before the foundation of the world God saw all things and planned all things. He planned the beginning and the end. He planned everything! Now that is not comforting...

God chooses all

God is love. God is relational. He loves all people and shows no favouritism to anyone. God will save all mankind because all mankind are in need of a Savior! God loves all the peoples of the world. At least the God I am starting to know does. The...

Why don’t Christians believe God will save all people?
