Is Worship Warfare?

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!Worship is the reason why we are saved, 1 Pet 2:9 makes that clear. In fact, the first catechism states that “the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” (Side note: that’s the only catechism […]

Being Aware Of His Presence

I came across this short message from Bill Johnson, and there are a few profound points in it. I recommend watching it through; being aware of God’s presence in our lives is such an important thing for us. A couple things that stood out to me. John (the Baptist) was feeding his thought life with […]

The Gnostic Gospel (Peter Jones)

According to Peter Jones, Gnosticism is public enemy #1 today, and I am compelled to agree. Peter Jones has studied Gnosticism and its effect on today’s western society for over 20 years, and he backs up his observations with many examples, both historical and current. Gnosticism is closely intertwined and deeply rooted in paganism – […]

How Do You Get Love?

How do you get love, when you don’t feel love for a person? I see people in this world doing everything for selfish reasons; when others are in need of love, it is held back for selfish reasons. How can we ever demonstrate the love of God to this world if we’re absorbed in self? […]

A Fervent Hope For The Return Of Christ?

Over the last year or so my eschatology (the study of the end-times) has been changing (I would say maturing) a fair bit, in large part thanks to Stephen Jones. During that time I have become far more aware with the concept of the millennial reign of Christ, and God has been opening my eyes […]

Recently I started reading Absolute Surrender by Andrew Murray. I got it for free via my OliveTree Bible reader app for iPad, and although the price was nice, it was the title caught my attention and prompted me to dig in. You can download it here on PDF. Absolute surrender… at a time when everyone […]

Gideon’s 4 Steps to Overcoming Strife

I’ve always been fascinated by the story of Gideon in Judges 6 and 7. Partly I think, because he seems so human; he doubts God on several occasions, and even thinks of himself as the weakest, poorest choice of all the people God might have picked. Despite these things, Gideon was God’s chosen instrument to […]

Hail in the Bible – and Hawaii!

I heard on the radio yesterday about baseball sized hail in Hawaii (Mar 9, 2012) which is pretty unusual, to say the least. So this morning I dug into the Bible to find out what it has to say about hail. First of all, what exactly is hail? Hail is simply water that has frozen […]

The Beauty of Holiness

I was listening to a song – Be Lifted Up by Paul Oakley – and one line stuck in my head. “Come and worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.” Holiness means being set apart or consecrated to God; dedicated to the service of God. THAT is beauty, according to the Word of God. […]
