Encouragement from Colossians

Col 2:6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, Col 2:7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. NKJV I want to ask- HOW did you receive Christ Jesus...

Whose report will you believe?

If you are a Christian then you have most likely heard the question in the Title before. Whose report will  you believe? It is taken from the story in Numbers 13 of the twelve spies Moses sent into Canaan to spy out the land. Ten of the twelve spies...

Are we righteous enough?

I normally write from the perspective of oneness with Jesus Christ, in all that He is I am….however that is strong meat. God wants us to journey with Him in our understanding and faith. We are free to camp where we are,and not move at all though Father would...

Tactics of Victory

We are all called to overcome even as Jesus overcame and sat down in triumph over His enemies. God in His loving wisdom has put us into a fight which is a fight of faith. The battle has of course been won already at the Cross…yet Jesus is waiting...

Eternal

Almost every time you read eternal in most Bibles you are reading a translation error. Does that scare you? The Greek word aion means an age of time…and it’s adjectives like aionios and aionian like all adjectives, describe the noun…they describe the age of time.   The words Eternity and eternal...

World

The word ”WORLD” appears 203 times in the KJV. Aion means age, yet the translators used world. This has caused needless confusion!! Time has a beginning and an end, and is broken up into different ages or aeons. Eternity is not about time. The World is not going to end-...

God shall complete His tapestry

In God’s reality the tapestry is already complete, it only awaits fulfillment in time and space…in other words, our reality. Before the foundation of the world God saw all things and planned all things. He planned the beginning and the end. He planned everything! Now that is not comforting...

God chooses all

God is love. God is relational. He loves all people and shows no favouritism to anyone. God will save all mankind because all mankind are in need of a Savior! God loves all the peoples of the world. At least the God I am starting to know does. The...

It’s the blood of Christ

It’s the blood of Christ that answers every accusation against us. It more than answers the accusatory voice…it smashes it into submission. Every accusation of the Law that was contrary to us, that was against us, accusing us of failure in the sight of God has been quashed. The...

Why don’t Christians believe God will save all people?

Why don’t Christians believe that God will save all people? There is not a simple answer to this question. I was not a believer in this wonderful reality until December 4th 2011, before that I believed that God would only succeed in saving a small percentage of people…those who...

Allow God to approve you

Posted on August 30, 2012 “1Th 2:3 For our appeal to you does not spring from deceit, impure motives, or trickery. 1Th 2:4 Rather, because we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, we speak as we do, not trying to please people but God,...

A word in my spirit

In the beginning God….In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God, he was in the beginning with God, all things were created through/by him…. I have in my spirit many things that seem to be bursting to come forth, but...

A prophetic utterance

Nations may rise and nations may fall, but the Lord endures forever. all the glory of man’s achievements, all the military might and weaponry, all the propaganda machinery, all the scheming , conniving, sabre rattling….it shall all fade away like the smoke…it shall all vanish away like a dream….it...

Grow where you are

Many in the church system think that God wants everyone to be a preacher or teacher or pastor and go to church regularly, not missing a meeting etc etc. Churchianity burns people out until they finally start to get real about their faith. I am not an advocate of...

Jesus will draw all

A revealing word study – DRAW. Dennis Rhodes 26/1/12 A simple word study into the english word translated as Draw, Drew, Dragged etc in the New Testament will give a clear picture of whether God is able to save All men or not. The common objection to God saving...

One evening on Pentecost

The Holy Spirit spoke to me about preaching on the street in front of the Christian bookstore in Guntur. He wanted to bless the owner, Sathakat. So we got there at 7pm. I stepped out in faith. He said to me , ‘ If you want the greater anointing...

Heal the sick in the land of many gods

More from my diary as we preached the Gospel in India. May it encourage you! Another village night meeting 15 km outside of Guntur. We sort of got lost. It was very dark on the highway and the head-lights are pretty useless in the Jeep. Syam could not quite...

The dry are always filled

A diary portion to encourage believers to step out in faith. “We went to a slum area set behind a large Chilli Exporting factory. This time Syam’s brother lent him his Nova to travel in. This is an old-style shaped car but a current model with A/C !! This...

Groaning of the prisoners

When I went to India 8 years ago now I did not know what God had in store other than I knew He was sending me at Pentecost. I knew He wanted to fill people with the Holy Spirit. Those things happened. God filled pastors with His Spirit and...

Evangelism in India

I offer this unedited evangelism trip to India as a testimony to God’s glory. As you will see, I am not perfect, far from it! But God will use whatever we offer Him if our heart is in the right place. My host was Sam(below) and Rebecca.   Rebecca...
