  • 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: […]

  • 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. […]

  • Easy to Understand, Hard to DO

    Easy to Understand, Hard to DO

    Jesus’ definition of a hypocrite was someone who did not practice what they taught (Matthew 23:3).  In my experience this is a surprisingly common phenomenon especially in my own life! James also said this about the same type of thing: 22 But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you […]

  • Out of the same spring

    Out of the same spring

    Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.19 I […]
