I am taking this day out to prepare for tomorrow's ministry. Preaching of the Word. I have been doing more under the surface study, to substantiate what God wants to do. I have had to exercise my mind more than just get enthusiastic about a spiritual principle that I THINK is God saying without making… Continue reading Christianity: a rational or emotional faith?
I made a comment on Facebook yesterday concerning Emigrating with a Purpose. I need to make some historical parrallels. This way what was a statement is understood in context. There is a crisis which has been going for the last 4 years since Northern Rock could no longer finance itself. The UK government had to… Continue reading Dispersion and modern day Emigration
I am just reading the Daily Mail, filtering through the rhetoric concerning Spain and its economic woes. According to official sources, whole autonomous regions of Spain are on the brink of bankcrupcy. The lending rates of debt swaps and the issue of government bonds has risen to 7.5%. It is unsustainable by any government. So… Continue reading When paper IOU substitute real cash
The current debate about a possible run on deposits in the Euro zone means that calls for greater union, and giving up of sovereignty is the only way forward. It seems to me that this crisis was engineered to bring about a scenario where decisions need to be made quickly which would normally take months… Continue reading Manipulated crisis
I was musing over this phrase this morning and God said this is the condition of the Church. It has the form or outline but no life. Not that is every Church, but for those who merely have the same ones praying, preaching, same form-at, dismotivated saints, disappointed prayers, powerless praisers, punched up people, this… Continue reading A form of godliness but denying the power
2011 has been a year of establishing foundations. I have seen in my own life, family, and in church life, as well as in the nations mass upheaval. This upheaval is uncomfortable, unsettling and sometimes very difficult to cope with. I remember that my own situation was one of being given no choice but to… Continue reading The season of Pillars
This week we have all seen the spreading of rioting throughout the cities of Britain. There has been a lot of destruction, some loss of life. Everyone is asking why. First of all the spiritual landscape of Britain is apathetic, with a society based on easy going economics, political correctness, and humanism. This means we… Continue reading Rioting without a cause
I am back in Portugal. I am packing up the house here. We shall be shortly in our new house. Please pray for us. It has not been easy, with lack of health at times. But God is good.
Dear all, I am back in Brixham. I have been back for over a week. I am here with the family. It has been good. This is quite a delicate time, for two reasons. One year ago, a woman of faith, my mother in law, left this life, to receive her eternal reward, and this… Continue reading The mystery of eternity
I have come back to Portugal to complete what I started last year. There are question marks that needs God to answer those. It seems strange to step into a land where I have handed back the call I once had. Abraham was told to leave his home country and everything. If anything mankind is… Continue reading Conventions with modern eyes: Abraham in the desert
