An able God!

Most of us believe that God is able to fulfill His promises.

However, most of what we are told is nothing more than deferred hope (Pro 13:12) - a gospel based on distance (God is far) and delay (you'd never know when, or if God would move). Pure religion!

Even the Israelites believed this lie whilst God moved visibly with them in the desert, yet instantly helped them when they were thirsty, hungry, in need of victory over their enemies, bitten by snakes, etc. etc.

Reading who God is in pictures

Can you remember those cvc children's books where you start off by reading in written text and every now and then a word is substituted by a picture in the sentence?

As children play

Well, ancient text writing started out exactly like that. Written language (or text) was a mere system of simple pictures (pictographs or symbols) organized in such a way that whoever reads it would read the same message again and again.

Know your place ...

It is always good to know where you are ...

No, seriously!

Not knowing where you stand may cause you to behave and react in totally strange and irrational ways. It may even make you do things that you ought not to. And for many perverse reasons ...

When church is not church

A Strange thing happened this week.

I was busy having a quiet time with the Holy Spirit about what we understand church to be, when I received a question on the meaning of the churches names in the book of Revelation.

By the time I received the question I had already coined the title of this post - "When church is not church".

Amazingly my quiet time turned into more of a revelation than I expected ...

Exceeding glorious ministry of righteousness

This post is not my own.

I admit that I copied it all from the Apostle of Grace.

And I'm not even commenting.

Every thing said is just perfect.

So, sit back and drink deep, very deep.

Then, ponder and let it sink in ...

Repeat as often as you need.

Shaken by end-time prophecy

Many times we are troubled and shaken by so-called end-time-prophecies.

Many times a sense of fear is provoked amongst believers. All based on obedience and own works ... Do! Get Busy! Serve! Obey!

And the institutional church has become an expert in this.

Purposed freedom against a defeated foe

I love reading the old covenant and seeing how it all points to Jesus.

I love reading and seeing ALL the law, prophecies, proverbs and history perfectly come together, fulfilled in Jesus.

I love looking at scripture and realizing IT  IS DONE.

Sometimes we all feel like failures ... and the institutional church plays no insignificant part in this.

But ask yourself. Who exactly is it that specializes in making the beloved of God feel like failures, unworthy, unjust, unfulfilled, sinners ..?

Who is that?

You guessed it right!

The Standard

Your standard or mine?

We all like to think that in life we are keeping high standards ... at least of something. This is no different when it comes to what we believe.

Religion, and how well you stick to your doctrine, is usually the measure-stick when it comes to what you believe. It will ask of us - How much we do. How well we do it. How often we get busy. How much we give. How spiritual we are. How much we attend. How good we behave. How well we obey ... and on and on ...

However, when it comes to a standard there is only one way to go.

Whole Armor of God

Among charismatics Ephesians 6:14-18 have always been a very prominent scripture. On the other end if the scale traditional churches have not paid much attention to these verses.

Again, it has to do with to-do or not- to-do ... to some to be active or to be passive.

Foolishness - mōria

How to be a fool in one easy step ...

To be foolish is a serious thing!

Nobody wants to be foolish!

No one wants to be a fool!

But is it possible. And what exactly does it mean?

The Bible tells us in no uncertain terms

Born blind but receive sight

More precious than pure gold

One of the most precious words the Holy Spirit taught me when I came to Grace some years ago, is the word "receive" or lambanō.

It can be one of the hardest things to receive something you have not worked for or earned and you feel it is undeserved and there must be something that you can do to deserve it.

But ...

The beguilement of touch not, taste not, feel not

The Word of God comes out strongly against the false teaching of this world ...

Doctrine and dogma

It is the doctrine of man.

It is a Pharisee's interpretation, turning and twisting ...

Amatory ode

Finding Jesus in the Psalms is no difficult task.

It is all about Him.

He is all about me.

And reading with the lenses of Grace makes this fundamental truth abundantly clear. And mind-blowing.

The awakening in Psalm 17

Have you heard the words of Jesus in the Psalms?

They are there.

All the poetry in the Bible expounds His wondrous works.

Even when the Beloved, David so eloquently penned what he thought was his own words ... they were really the words of the BELOVED Himself.

Join me as we hear Jesus in the poetry of Psalm 17 ... every word a grand prophecy ...
