  • You cannot serve God and Mammon

    You cannot serve God and Mammon

    The bible says, quite rightly of course, that money answers all things (Ecclesiastes 10:19). It also says that the love of it is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10 KJV). Jesus was completely unconcerned about having or not having money. He was supremely confident in His Father’s care and so wasn’t bothered when […]

  • Tearing apart the Lion of Judah

    Tearing apart the Lion of Judah

    Samson tore apart a lion of Judah in the Old Testament.  I don’t think anything is ever put in the Bible by accident.  A lot of the OT foreshadows things in the NT. 5 So Samson went down to Timnah with his father and mother, and came to the vineyards of Timnah. Now to his surprise, a young […]

  • Abiding

    Abiding

    He who dwells in the Secret Place of the Most High will rest under the Shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1 As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, […]

  • Different ways of seeing

    Different ways of seeing

    In the middle of Jesus’ discourse on the Holy Spirit in John 14-16 He suddenly says this about Himself: “A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me, because I go to the Father” (John 16:16). His disciples are confused so they repeat the statement: […]

  • Time and the Trinity

    Time and the Trinity

    My daughter (19) had this insight to give us recently during our daily breaking of bread times. We have been doing these together as a family since the lockdown started and it has been a great blessing. There are 6 of us in the house – our family + 1. E. arrived to stay with […]

  • Thor

    We are watching a lot of films during this pandemic. Typically, I will sit down with my two daughters and watch a film most nights. We are going through the Marvel movies on Disney+. Last night we watched the first Thor movie. Thor is a character from Norse mythology. This particular mythology has been very […]

  • Thoughts on Communion: Healing

    Thoughts on Communion: Healing

    Many of us have, at some distinct point in the past, known a time when we realised that Jesus died on the Cross for us personally. For me it was a life changing experience. We usually associate that experience, if we have had it, with a sense of relief that comes from forgiveness of sins. […]

  • Grace

    Grace

    God has done wonderful things for us as a family over the last many years. One of them was to give us the names of our children from the time of conception. Our youngest was given the names Bethany Grace Joy and Grace is the one that she uses everyday. It is Grace’s birthday today. […]

  • All things you ask believing

    All things you ask believing

    There are several statements that Jesus makes about asking in faith: “And all things, whatever you ask in prayer believing you will receive.” (Matthew 21:22 see also Matthew 7:7-11, Mark 11:24, Luke 11:9-13, John 14:13, 15:7,16b) The emphasis in these statements of Jesus is asking the Father in faith knowing who He is. Nothing is […]

  • Blessed is the One Psalm 1

    Charles Haddon Spurgeon says Psalm 1: “..may be looked upon … as the text upon which the whole of the Psalms makes up a divine sermon.” The Treasury of David Vol. 1, Psalms 1-57 by C. H. Spurgeon available at https://archive.spurgeon.org/treasury/ps001.php Because it is such an important Psalm it is worth learning off by heart. […]
