Which lord do you seek?

In 1 Kings 17-19 recounts the story of the worship of a false lord called Baal. This lord as prophets to this deity in a time of famine were given the rights to sit at the Royal table of Jezebel. You have to remember that this was a time of utter famine. And bread was scarce. The nation had gone astray to this false lord. They had left the worship of the true Lord. Now they out of sheer necessity had to pledge allegiance to Jezebel at her royal table. Jezebel had almost eradicated the prophetic out of the land. … Continue reading Which lord do you seek?

Price of Transition: change of leadership

2 Samuel 6 We see that in one day a leadership generation is replaced. Saul is replaced with David, albeit not so soon. What happened in any transition is that disillusionment comes in, rejecting a form of leadership. We must change pace. David desires the Ark, desires the Presence of God. But his attempt took the life of one man. There was stumbling. We need to examine some parrallels. A. David tried to bring the Presence of God without looking into the Word. B.

Rioting without a cause

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 are bringing up a generation who have no presentation, posture for work. They are mostly unemployed for years, and without any prospect. This along with humanistic vacuum which has left the country a shadow of what it once was. The minorities are affecting the opinion … Continue reading Rioting without a cause
