  • Preaching the Gospel to Abraham

    Preaching the Gospel to Abraham

    Paul makes this interesting observation in Galatians 3:8: Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.” So what was this gospel? “All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12:3 NLT). Paul goes on to […]

  • Conceiving the Inconceivable

    Conceiving the Inconceivable

    There is a story of twins talking to each other in the womb which is going about the internet in various forms.  Here is my take on it. The babies are not far from birth and well developed but still completely ignorant of what is to come.  They cannot conceive of what they are about […]

  • Faith and Desire

    Faith and Desire

    God knows your deepest desires and isn’t surprised by any of them.  I believe that He has an answer to them all in Christ both for this life and the next. As believers one of the things we have to get used to is that the line between this life and the next is very […]

  • Mesmerised

    Mesmerised

    2250 AD Martin was in front of the four living creatures and had fallen over onto his face again.  “I thought you said he would be able for this,” an angel said. “He will be ok it’s just that even in his new body he finds it hard to cope with things that don’t relate to […]

  • Sodom and Gomorrah

    Sodom and Gomorrah

    I am reading a book by Charles Swindoll called: “Abraham: One Nomad’s Amazing Journey of Faith.”  In it Charles includes a very convicting chapter on Genesis 19 and the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah.  It is a word for today’s church. I am a firm believer that things are improving in many ways but I […]

  • Why would anyone believe the Pope is the Anti-Christ!?!

    Why would anyone believe the Pope is the Anti-Christ!?!

    People believe all sorts of things for all sorts of reasons.  Many people believe everything they read on the Internet, others believe everything Trump says.  A lot of people believe the Bible literally including when it says the world was created in 6 x 24 hour days. So it should come as no surprise that […]

  • Historical Eschatology

    Historical Eschatology

    Eschatology is the fancy name for the study of the end times.  There are quite a few theories out there about how things are going to work out usually involving a rapture, a great tribulation, a millennium and an Anti-Christ.  One of the popular theories includes a significant tribulation to come at the end lasting […]

  • The Book of Life

    The Book of Life

    According to an understanding of the Scriptures by many people (e.g. C.S. Lewis) everyone’s name is in the Book of Life because of what Jesus did on the Cross.  But are you living in such a way that God will have to blot you out of it? So Moses went back to the Lord and said, “Oh, […]

  • The meaning of the word “Antichrist”

    The meaning of the word “Antichrist”

    The word antichrist has two parts to it. Anti means “in place of” and christ in this context means “anointing”. John wrote to disciples of Jesus, those who are born again, and says about this anointing that you have no need for anyone to teach you since you have the anointing and know the truth […]

  • Jesus’ life better than Adam’s sin

    Jesus’ life better than Adam’s sin

    In Romans 5 Paul states something a bit obvious – Jesus life is more powerful than Adam’s sin in its effects. 12 When Adam sinned, sin entered the world. Adam’s sin brought death, so death spread to everyone, for everyone sinned.  Yes, people sinned even before the law was given. But it was not counted as sin […]
