THINK truth, honest, just, pure, lovely, good, virtuous, praiseworthy

You can think what you want ... 

But remember you are as you think. Whatever is in the heart will manifest in the physical, whether you want to know it or not.

Out of the heart flows the issues of life! Pro 4:23

Your life is determined by what (or Who) you behold

Throughout the Bible much emphasis is given to what we think and what or who we spend our time with and on.

Am I making sense?

That is why Solomon, in all his wisdom, gave us the proverb that says As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Pro 23:7

Why not talk more about hell?

I have been accused of not talking about hell enough.

And that I do not believe that hell was meant to be the home of any human being.

What do I say to this?

Guilty as charged ...

So, what do you have to say in your own defense Daniel?

Go to your closet

I had an interesting conversation with someone earlier this week after a morning prayer session with colleagues at work. [Let me just explain. We fellowship before work and pray. Yet, being such a diverse group, the praying can get somewhat loud and extravagant at times as all indulge simultaneously, the African way).

Why are people against some forms of prayer?

Fruit from receiving in prepared ground, hearing the word and understanding


I was accused the other day of saying that healing, as part of the atonement, was for everyone right now, in this life ...

Well, did I?

... I admit wholeheartedly to have done so. I said it exactly as I stand accused ...

I created a poll that stated "Healing is part of the atonement and finished work of Christ! We have freedom to receive healing. It is our inheritance."

... and I posted it for voting purposes on a couple of social media grace groups.

Did people like it?

One response explicitly reprimanded me

All birthed from One - the Gospel in Psalm 87

Some nations and peoples are condemned to spend an eternity in hell ... or are they?

Worldly springs yield no pure delight; all there are mixed and turbulent: all here are refreshing, satisfying, delightful.

Springs? Wells? Fountains?

Does it say so?

The Word of power denied - the story of Saul

What we desire is not always good for us. Especially if what we desire is based on what we see and compare from others we interact with ... and not in line with God's Word.

Choice first grade flesh is not such a good choice after all!

The flesh can be corrupted ... and the evidence is everywhere.

So, my post today is all about how the Gospel can be, and frequently is corrupted through the choice man makes.

What a topic!

whosoever


Who is whosoever?

The dictionary defines whosoever as whoever. Used as a pronoun in a sentence we usually get something like  "Whosoever wants a soda needs to pay at the counter," which means that anyone (whoever) who wants a soda has to pay at the counter.

The answer is very simple. It is anyone.

So, who is this in Bible terms?

Wherever - because you are anointed

When is the right place and right time to preach the Gospel, and to whom?

And what is this Gospel we are supposed to bring?

When the Gospel is to be ministered there are always a number of questions that people come up with to substantiate their unwillingness or indifference.

Typically these include where, who and what?

In this blog post I will be dealing with the where-part.

Against the odds in Malta

Sometimes when someone is on his or her last leg, so to speak, they give up.

What if they were on their last leg ...

and a prisoner ...

and  stranded amongst pagan heathens ...

and bitten by a snake ...

and being thought of as being a criminal that was pursued by their pagan gods ...

and ... no family, no transport, no daily amenities ....

Well, that's how it turned out for Paul in Malta.

The way of a fool!

Recently a grace teacher of note wrote in his newly released book that it is quite possible to hear the words of Jesus and not hear what the Holy Spirit is saying ...

Gulp ...

What?

Well, it is true because so did Judas and the Pharisees and a host of many others.

How do we hear then?

Righteousness revealed - get your ID

The problem with the modern-day Christian is that we do not know our identity.

We do not know who we are in Christ.

We therefore do not know that we are given the authority to reign ... we are therefore defeated Christians during our tenure here on earth.

It's an identity-crisis!

So, as a Christian, how is your righteousness revealed?

Jesus did not pay for your sins

Someone recently posted Adam sold us out. Jesus bought us back! #PaidInFull.

... and I thought about what the Spirit of Truth once taught me ...

To this post I had to ask the question Sold out to who ... and paid who?

Sold out!

Yes, Adam did more than selling human kind out. He relinquished his rights and power and authority and gave away his precious position in God.

But Jesus didn't negotiate or pay a price to the thief in order to gain our freedom. Never!

Look and be saved

Sometimes it's just better to sit and enjoy ...

... especially when something is already done!

Stand back, behold ... take it in and receive what is accomplished.

Why do we find it so hard?

Beyond and above - ask

In my last post I dealt with some New Testament prayer ... a better way to pray in comparison to the old covenant prayers we pray as brain-washed Christians.

Don't blame me!

Blame Paul!

There is a difference between the New Testament and the old covenant (which you were never part of, unless you were an Israelite) and there is a different way to pray.

You are an heir in the kingdom of God. Now pray like you are!

Is prayer really prayer?

Ephesians 1 prayer

The New Testament brings a new way to pray...

Paul shows us how in Ephesians 1:17-23 (I have personalized it from the KJV).

Now go on ... pray it over yourself!

HalleluYAH, the picture ...


If ever there was one Hebrew word that we all use all over the world all of the time, it is the word Hallelujah ... or, as I like use it - HalleluYAH!

We use it all the time. 

Even non-Christians and people in all kinds of religions use it.

And we don't find the time to stop and see what it is that we are saying ...

So, let's do!

Resurrection in Message language

Have you heard Paul speaking in Message language?

Yes, he does sound a little different ... but he is even more understandable. 

So I took the liberty to post what Paul says about the subject of "resurrection", ... but from the Massage (from the MSG translation).

It's awesome!

The crowns of Yahshua

The Word explains the Word.

... to the extent that you will stand perplexed ...

... and be utterly astonished of how that even the word-pictures testify and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Out of the miry clay

The prophet Zechariah (remembered by Yahveh) speaks so beautifully and eloquently about the Grace of God - Jesus. 

Zechariah also prophesied about God's elect (us), who was freed from Babylon (confusion-by-mixture, the miry clay), describing an amazing picture of a crown (ăṭârâh or עטרה - encircled or crowned with the pictograph: revelation surrounded by the Highest in Grace) for the head of Yah'shua (Jesus).

Join me as I share my own astonishment

Cast out the bondwoman

We talked about Perfect Liberty, the PLL (Perfect Law of Liberty) in a previous post.

The straight opposite is to be in bondage.

Both are available, yet mutually exclusive.

You can not be totally free when you are in bondage. And you cannot be in bondage when you are totally free ...

Think about it for a moment ...

Who overcomes?

Did you know that the word defeat does not occur anywhere in the KJV translation New Testament?

The word overcome does.

Maybe it is so because those of us who see ourselves as heirs and beneficiaries of the New Testament are not meant to be defeated, but rather we are meant  to be the ones who overcome.

It is a shift of power and authority story
