Why Was The Tree of Knowledge in Eden?

I’m going to throw out some thoughts about the original creation, and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, which as we know was forbidden fruit on orders of God. So the question that arises is, why did God put it in the Garden?

The Ark of the Covenant is the Lord

I was recently thinking about the existence and appearance of the Lord before his earthly incarnation and this has long been a puzzle to me.

It’s not that I doubt his previous existence because many scriptures confirm it, including the words of Jesus himself: “Before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:58) But in what form did he exist and what happened when God the Son was born as a human being – was he still existent in the heavenlies or not?

I’m not going to tackle those questions. But one thing has become clear to me, involving the Ark of the Covenant.

The Meaning Of The Last Supper

At this special time, coming up to Easter, when we remember the death and resurrection of our Lord, I thought it might be good to look at the events of the Last Supper, as see what they say to us of the Lord’s sacrifice and also how all of history led us to this moment.

To do so I am going to share a useful article from this website, A Different Spirit, a “Non-denominational Bible Teaching Ministry”

Jesus Said He’d Come Back in the First Century AD?

On a number of occasions, Jesus was asked about, or offered information about, the timing of his return and on every occasion he seemed to imply that it would be within the lifetime of his disciples.

Tackling this seeming conundrum has produced acres of print, and my blog post really needs to be a book.

But I would suggest for anyone who wants to do more research, they look into the web pages at the bottom of the post, and also this book, available from Amazon and elsewhere:

How God Prepared Me For Asbury

This is just my personal testimony, for something that happened last year. I now believe it was of God’s guidance to prepare me for what is going to happen as a result of the Asbury “revival”.

I have put the word revival in quotes because I believe a true revival is spontaneous (which this event was not) and is undergirded with sound biblical preaching of the bible truths (which this is not) and has the main aim and outcome of people being saved by the sacrifice of Jesus, or else brought to repentance of their sin, if they are worldly Christians (which this revival mostly doesn’t do).

For all this see the links below my post.

Who *REALLY* is the Antichrist?

Ever since John wrote the Book of Revelation (given to him by Jesus Christ himself) there has been speculation, argument, discussion and endless theories as to “who is the Antichrist”? Is that really the most important thing we need to get from Revelation? But let’s proceed:

The Earliest New Testament Manuscripts

As I wander round the Internet, especially in Facebook groups, I frequently see anti Christian comments that say “The bible wasn’t even written until the Middle Ages”. Of course we know that’s nonsense, but in order to correct it we need to have factual proof of the earliest date of the bible manuscripts.

Five Errors of the NAR

It’s perhaps the fastest growing movement in the church today, but it deviates greatly from what the Bible teaches about our mission, our future and the endtimes. The movement often referred to as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) relies more on experience and extra-biblical revelations than it does on the words of Scripture. The article below lays out five major errors of the NAR.

2023 – Jubilee Year?

I had intended to write about the biblical Jubilee, and how the Jewish year that began in the Autumn of 2022 and takes us into 2023 is reckoned by some to be a Jubilee year.

I found in my research that there was way too much information for a simple blog article here, and too many shades of opinion, so I did not want to appear as if I were making a stand one way or the other.

However, for your interest I am going to share one article I found that contains interesting information that I believe is worth your time to read. I came across this on the internet, do not know about the ministry, and am not promoting or even necessarily endorsing this couple. You must judge for yourselves.

Who Are The Saints?

Recently I have come across comments and articles about saints, so I thought I would clarify the biblical position on this. To cut to the chase, everyone who has accepted the Lord Jesus as Saviour and has been cleansed by his sacrifice on the Cross is “sanctified” thereby.

The bible does not speak of saints as being a specially holy group of people, but they are simply Christians.

Kat Kerr, the Pink-Haired Prophetess

I have been taken to Heaven since 1996, about three times a week; so if you want to multiply it, that’s probably how many times I’ve been, I’ve lost count…” [Quote from Divine Encounter II Disc 1 #10 by Kat Kerr]

For this article I am indebted to several writers, whose words I have collated and abridged. They are listed at the end of the post along with direct quotes from Kat Kerr’s videos and books. There you will also find links to a few of the many videos of Kat Kerr and her beliefs.

What Do Angels *really* Look Like?

My task in this article is to dispel the common myth that angels have wings and halos. This has come into popular belief through many paintings, drawings and depictions throughout the ages, not to speak of movies and other media.

However, what we need to do is look at the truth in the bible, not modern media.

One popular modern interpretation is shown in the image above, an “angel” not only with wings and glowing light, but as a woman. This is often the case in today’s images.

Do You Ever Feel Unworthy?

I’m going to write something today that is intensely personal, but for a reason – to demonstrate the kindness and love of God.

I finally had that “penny-drop” moment this morning (it’s about time) where I realised something about myself – possibly this is true for many others – and about my relationship with God.

Born Again – What, and WHY?

You must be born again” (John chapter 3:7). But why, how, and what does it actually entail? I think many Christians see that phrase “born again” merely as another way of saying “become a Christian” and of course the world’s media has thoroughly corrupted the phrase as well, [likewise the word “charismatic”] so that the original meaning has been swamped by modern ideas.

Follow God, not Man

We have arrived at a time in history when celebrities, influencers (as well as unknown hopefuls) crave followers. They will do almost anything, including foolish and dangerous things; they will say almost anything regardless of the consequences, in the rabid pursuit of followers. People today are judged not so much by their actions but by their number of followers online.

The Seven Pillars of Error

We know of the “Seven Pillars of Wisdom” in Proverbs 9:1 but now it seems the Church is intent on leading its followers, as well as the rest of the world, into an entirely different way of thinking. Here I will try to quickly summarise the main problems, being aware that there is so much more excellent material online for you to access in addition to this.

The Armour is God’s Not Ours

We are familiar with the verse that urges us to “put on the full armour of God” [Ephesians 6:10-17 British spelling throughout] but I got new light on those verses when I realised the obvious fact that all this armour isn’t ours – by striving, effort, mental/spirit achievement, or anything else that is human.

The Problem of Unanswered Prayer

How To Cope With Unanswered Prayer: The bulk of this post is from a website and magazine called “Just Between Us“. I found it useful so I wanted to share it with you. The reason is, lately I have struggled with the problem of prayers that seemingly go unanswered.

(I know little to nothing about the website this post comes from, nor its owners, so I encourage you to visit it for yourselves if you would like to know more.)

Attacked by the Accuser

The devil is rightly called the “accuser of the brethren” (Revelation 12:10) and his tactics are to bring believers into fear and condemnation. His works are increasing in these last days, so maybe there is something to be learned from what happened to me last night.

The Dominion Agenda

There are many excellent blogs and youtubes and articles these days exposing error, and they all have their place. They usually examine in depth one of the many false teachers, pastors, “apostles” or prophets that proliferate all over the TV and Internet, not to speak of megachurches (especially in America.)
