A declaration caught my attention today, being a holiday here in the UK. Spirituality is on the decline. Signs and wonders are on the decline. Reasons : 1. Substitution of prayer with modern technology and its distractions 2. Lack of knowledge of the art of waiting on God. 3. Lack of Biblical understanding Continue reading Decline of spirituality
Today just coming from local church meeting a message has been moving in my spirit for a few days. I find the text in Matthew’s Gospel inspiring. The only text that speaks of wise men from the East. We do not know for historical detail who they were. But what we know, that as a baby, creation gave signs. For them it was a star. We do not assume that they just saw the star and concluded that they were to follow it. No, we understand as learned men that they would have sought for answers for this phenomenon. Somehow … Continue reading Following the Star; preparation for change.
Christmas is a time for miracles. We received one yesterday. Nisia came home after almost a week of trial and testing. We saw a chain of prayer activated right from friends in Brixham and our church in Paignton. Then out to the nations. The power of prayer is very effective. What miracle do you need? Christmas is Jesus being birthed amongst us! He prepares us to receive Him. Look at Mary, 9 months of preparation. The Magi took 2 years to behold what had been revealed to them! Their commitment to seeking Him out meant a treacherous journey in all … Continue reading Christmas = miracle
I would like all of you to pray for my daughter who is in hospital right now. She is suffering a kidney complaint. We have this confidence that God is faithful to heal. We would desire it that Nisia come home for Christmas. Please join with us in this prayer. Continue reading Special Christmas Request
Right now the Lord is coming “suddenly” unto His Temple. What is His Temple? It is us. He is coming…. It is suddenly. This is that season. Those who have felt on the back burner, God will promote suddenly. Suddenlies coming: 1. Suddenlies of call 2. Suddenlies of finances 3. Suddenlies of situations which will be unlocked. But His coming will require a mighty purification. Of motives. What are your motives? Who can stand the day of His Coming? Who will be the Levites? Those called by God. Those who have mixed their call with worldly agendas will receive a … Continue reading Undivided Heart
Still in this passage, the Word has unlimited revelation. Jesus is the AUTHOR of faith. An author writes, and pioneers thought into words and speech. This creates reality. Jesus is the voice which said: Let there be light. This means that FAITH is the force of all creation. It serves as the second element of creation to exist. You may ask how can you say that? You must take what Paul writes in I Corinthians 13 and see that 3 elements continually operate in our lives; love, faith and hope. Faith coming in behind love, because faith demonstrates in creation … Continue reading Jesus the AUTHOR of FAITH: Hebrews 12 message 4
I heard in our local church the same passage expounded profoundly and wonderfully. Pastor Tony Williams of Paignton ( Living Waters) expounded in such a profound way what God already had spoken to me about. His blog is prtonywilliams.wordpress.com to follow. Today I want to talk about the JOY God SETS before us. God SETS before us a “table” of destiny and overcoming that we can walk in. When we read the scripture we see a different mindset to what we have today. We see a acceptance of “suffering” in living out the Gospel. When I say “suffering” I do … Continue reading Who for the Joy SET before Him: Hebrews 12 message 3
