A meditation and a prayer for all those in Pakistan and Kenya who suffered this week.

24 September, 2013 

"It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last". Luke 23:44-46

These famous words are usually only associated with Jesus when He was on the cross. In fact they were first spoken by King David. It was the…

The 'Aloneness' of God ....... An extract from my book 'The Bride of Christ - Our Lost Identity'

The ‘aloneness’ of God

Some time along my journey of discovery about the Bride of Christ and the Bridegroom King, I came to realise that the triune God, in their humility and wisdom had placed within their character a vulnerability that made them so much more accessible to all His creation. God had put the ability for Him to experience ‘aloneness’ within His being.

Aloneness is not to be confused with loneliness for God is never lonely. The relationship between…

"Teach me Your ways oh Lord".

Moses said….“Now, if I've found favour in your sight, please show me your ways so I may know you”.  Ex 33 v 13

David said….”Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.”  Psalm 86:11

Both Moses and King David went beyond a determination to sincerely obey what God commanded them to do; they became students of God's ways. His ways were not just His acts. His ways were about the ‘way’ he acted and the…

Unity in the Body of Christ - the prerequisite for Revival and National Transformation

Unity in the Body of Christ - the prerequisite for Revival and National Transformation 

In this message I want to draw attention to role of the Church in the eternal purpose of God. We will firstly concern ourselves with what the Church is and what the Kingdom is and then describe how, according to Scripture, God sees Church from a territorial or…

A Christmas Message

Do you know that our Jewish brothers and sisters have just finished celebrating Hanukah? 

As we read about Hanukah from the point of view of a believer and follower of Jesus; we are struck by the parallels that can be drawn from the history of the holiday. It is celebrated from sunset, Sat Dec 8th till sunset Saturday Dec 16th and is a reminder of the time when the temple in Jerusalem in 164 BC, after the popular revolt in 165 BC led by an elderly priest Mattathias and…

‘Walking with God’.........” Enoch walked with God and was not” Gen 5 v 24

Introductory statement

Enoch, the God pleaser extraordinary! Enoch was a man who walked so closely with the Lord that one day they just walked off together to Heaven.

Bible Reading

Enoch is first mentioned in Gen. 5:21-24 which tells us that when Enoch had lived 65 years, he became the father of Methuselah.  He was the father of Methuselah, the great grandfather of Noah and the great grandson of Adam. Enoch walked with God 300 years and…

The Purpose, the Proof and the Power of the Resurrection Matthew 27:50-28:15

After six hours on the cross Jesus cried aloud, “It is finished!” And then He died. Is this the end of He Who was in the beginning? Will Christianity die out in a short lived puff of smoke? Will man continue down the sin paved highway to hell now that He’s gone?…

The Bride of Christ....a scriptural survey

The ministry I direct is dedicated to 1) healing the much divided and broken Body of Christ and 2) to awakening and equipping His precious Bride for effective mission now and to make Her ready for His coming as the Bridegroom King.

How to Hear from God.

Hearing from God is something we all want to experience more and more. How do I hear God and ...and how can I hear Him better? It is the heart cry of the human spirit....and a very healthy sign of spiritual life within you. So.....be encouraged! Here are some reflections which I hope will be helpful.

In order to understand this subject more fully we must start by going back to the beginning of time and creation.

When God created Adam and Eve He created them in perfection. That…
