I’m not a follower of prophecies and visions, especially in these days when so many bizarre “words from God” are nonsense, and easily disproved. Today these so-called prophesies emphasise the victory and glory of the Church, and its preparation for a global revival. However, there ARE a few genuine instances of prophecy that have stood the test of time. After all, the bible says that the hallmark of a genuine prophet is that what is said comes to pass. (Deut. 18:22; Jer. 28:9; Ezek. 33:33). Continue reading
I remember a moment, as clear as if it happened yesterday, although it was about 40 years ago (!) and it prepared me for what is happening today. Indeed, it was crucial, even though I did not know it at the time. Thank you Lord.
Fast-forward to today. I watched a short video [thanks to OnesimusFiles] that examined today’s political and religious events in America (America principally, but also affecting the rest of the world). That too recalled the truths I refer to above. Both roots sprang up together – because everything in our lives is ordered by God. Continue reading
It is clear to me that powerful people – whoever they might be – have decided to get behind the idea of a cashless society and the use of microchip implants for humans. Trials are taking place in Sweden and parts of the UK right now, certainly with a view to expanding the idea worldwide if possible. Continue reading
No doubt you are as troubled about world events as I am, especially as there seems no relief in sight.
And these days, praying isn’t so straightforward either, since we have less and less clarity on exactly what is the Lord’s intention (except for the obvious biblical prophecies.)
(Personally, I pray Lord, let YOUR will be done, and YOUR will prevail.)
I was recently led to start reading the book of Samuel. Unexpectedly I stumbled on scriptures that informed my thoughts about Friday’s Presidential Inauguration.
I should explain that this was part of my regular reading plan, not a deliberate policy. It happened, as they say, by chance.
I had come to the end of the book of Acts and intended to start Luke’s Gospel again, but in the meanwhile I came upon a verse in Samuel and then thought “why don’t I start Samuel instead?”
That was a week or so ago. All of this is to say, I believe I was led to read Samuel because the Presidential Inauguration was coming up on Friday this week (20th January). Continue reading
I have been reading the book of Acts. When I came to chapter 14 suddenly for the first time something occurred to me. On checking my thoughts on the Net, it seems I wasn’t the only one!
In Lystra, where Paul and the others has gone to escape the persecution in Antioch, Paul was stoned by some of the Jewish elders of Antioch who had travelled there on purpose to harass him.
My thought was this: when Paul was stoned by the Jews and left for dead, did he actually die? And was THIS the time he later referred to as his visit to heaven: Continue reading
It seems my last blog post about fake news was timely.
A day or two afterwards, there was the news that a gunman had entered a Pizza cafe (Comet Ping Pong) with a rifle in order to “self-investigate” a rumour that has been circulating widely. It now even has a name – Pizzagate.
Although nobody was injured, the staff were terrorised and the cafe was damaged when the deluded man used his rifle. How long is it before somebody is killed? Continue reading
