  • A Rising Tide

    A Rising Tide

    I have felt encouraged by a number of words recently from various sources that are indicating that the Lord is moving, or about to move (depending on where you are) in a new way. This has been referred to as the “Third Wave” by some (e.g. by Sean Booth) and is foretold in a 1947 […]

  • The US Election

    The US Election

    In 3 days the world will know the result of the US election. This is an election like no other in a year like no other. Many are praying that there will be a very clear outcome, one way or the other, to reduce the risk of social upheaval. I have some people asking me […]

  • Frontispiece

    Frontispiece

    In Millennium the author combines deep biblical study with an active imagination to create an account of what life might be like for those living on the earth during the predicted 1000 years of Christ’s rule on earth.

    Family Values

  • Pruning Fruit Trees

    Pruning Fruit Trees

    We only have two fruit trees in our garden.  We have had both of them for going on four years now.  Neither I nor my wife would consider ourselves horticultural experts.  Indeed about the only things I know about looking after fruit trees I learnt from reading passages in the bible.  Particularly John 15. So […]

  • Visions during Worship

    Visions during Worship

    Corporate worship where God is moving in the Spirit is amazing.  I am sure all sorts of things are happening while we worship that we are probably only dimly aware of.  For sure there is more going on than most of us realise. This morning during worship I had a series of visions – or […]

    The Irish fields are ripe for harvest

    God has been doing a mighty work in Ireland shaking everything that can be shaken so that that which cannot be shaken – the Kingdom of God – may remain and, indeed, expand greatly.  The powers of institutional religion and the intertwined government that ruled this country for decades have been broken and a spiritual vacumn […]
