    At the Mention of Your Name

    “The foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of man and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.” 1 Cor. 1: 25. One of the things that encourages me that the Lord is coming back soon is how well the world has been prepared for His coming. The knowledge of God’s ways […]

  • Being Grateful for the Everyday

    Being Grateful for the Everyday

    We need to count our blessings and be grateful for the things we take for granted every day. Most of Ireland’s citizens live like kings with freedom to worship, a government that’s accountable to them and a host of public services which the most needy never have to pay for. We also need to remember […]

  • Abraham and Isa…

    Originally posted on faithfulwon:
    Abraham and Isaac: Father and Son It was a very long trudge up Mt. Moriah as Abraham went to sacrifice his son to his God.  He was thinking about it as he went along.  He knew that it was a common enough thing among the gods of the people’s around him…

  • 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 […]

  • Physical Realities

    Physical Realities

    Methusalech was afraid. This was his normal emotion every time King Hezekiah called him in for a progress report on the tunnel. It was not that the King made him feel that way, it was just that he seemed to be continually bringing him bad news. The King understood the difficulty of what he had […]

  • Thoughts on Healing: Elisha

    Thoughts on Healing: Elisha

    The middle of the night is a good time to hear things it seems. I woke up this morning remembering Elisha’s incident with the women of Shunem: One day Elisha went to the town of Shunem. A wealthy woman lived there, and she urged him to come to her home for a meal. After that, […]

  • Forgiveness of Sins

    Forgiveness of Sins

    It is a tragedy to watch Ireland abandon centuries of Christian tradition to become a bastion of anti-christian sentiment, atheism and humanism. I believe that the main reason that this has happened is that the majority of the people of Ireland have rightly turned with horror from the abuses of the Roman Catholic churches hierarchy […]

  • Faith Tests

    Faith Tests

    So God speaks to you, not once but often, promising something huge.  He tells you to do something about it and you obey.  And then all hell breaks loose. First of all, the exact opposite to what God promises happens.  You pray for healing believing God has spoken to you saying that that person, or […]

  • Faith and Waiting

    Faith and Waiting

    There is a pattern of God’s working with men that seems almost like He is teasing us, but the aim is to test and show our faith, remove idolatry and make us more dependent on Him. When Abraham was told at the age of 75 that his descendants would be like the stars of heaven […]

  • God Manifesting Himself

    God Manifesting Himself

    A boss of mine recently asked me why, in effect, God had been so silent since the time He sent Jesus.  I responded about the Church manifesting Him since, and now, but that didn’t really answer his question. I’ve heard the same question asked in different ways.  If God is who He says He is […]
