  • Gaps and Flaws - Ministering on 15 Aug 12

    Gaps and Flaws - Ministering on 15 Aug 12



    Gaps and Flaws - Ministering on 15 Aug 12 For the past few months I have been looking at a spot in the hedge of lilacs that runs along the side of my yard. A few honeysuckle bushes are mixed in with the lilacs and during a freeze this past March 2012, a branch from one of those honeysuckle bushes broke off. This has left a huge gap in the hedge. To make this worse, that honeysuckle bush died over the summer and mixed in with the lilacs now, are the brown leaves and dead branches. ...

  • A Diamond in the Rough

    A Diamond in the Rough

    As most are aware, the diamond is the world's hardest naturally-occurring substance, its hardness the result of molecular compression caused by tremendous pressures during its formation deep in the earth. Though regarded as one of the most valuable of gems in the world, the diamond actually has little value in the original form in which it is found. Only after very precise cuts by a skilled diamond cutter, and then being polished to its characteristic brilliant luster, does the diamond become a...

  • Vote For Faith!

    Vote For Faith!

    When I was a child, politics and religion were two such hot button issues they were considered taboo, you just didn't discuss them. In today's atmosphere of near oppressive politically correct ideals, it's difficult not to find one's self involved in some sort of political or religious discussion. Unfortunately, some in the Church have not yet realized that the two cannot be separated, our political beliefs should be guided by our religious beliefs. Instead, all too often we find ourselves concerning...

  • A coal from the fire

    A coal from the fire

    Many years ago, a believer who had become discouraged from the weight of great sorrow and adversity in his life, gradually quit attending church, withdrew to himself and even avoided visits from concerned friends and family members. He began becoming defensive when anyone suggested he should come back into fellowship, responding that the last thing he needed was people judging him. He began to feel like Job, with suffering he felt was undeserved, and rebuffed efforts by his Pastor and members of...

  • Temple Cleansing "Contradiction"

    Temple Cleansing "Contradiction"

    When did Jesus Cleanse the Temple?



    Contradiction hunters may have done Bible-believers a favour when it comes to their old favourite, “when did Jesus cleanse the Temple?” In each of the synoptic gospels – Matthew, Mark and Luke – the event comes at the end, only days before his arrest. However, St. John’s book doesn’t say that. He describes a temple cleansing at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry shortly after attending the wedding at Cana. (John 2:11-16) The occasions...

    Sufferings and Siftings

    Sufferings and Siftings

    Last spring a group of ladies and I went through Beth Moore’s When Godly People Do Ungodly Things. I found my notes to myself this afternoon and reviewed what all we learned and was refreshed all over again. I would encourage any Christian - seasoned or not - to read the book.

    We all had a little bit of a break down and a breakthrough in the study. Early on, we focused on God’s permissive will and why He allows what He allows. We also concentrated

  • Was Solomon right, that there is nothing new under the sun?

    Was Solomon right, that there is nothing new under the sun?

    King Solomon--arguably the wisest man who ever lived (outside of Jesus), made many profound observations about God, man, the world, and life in general. One of his more well-known statements includes these words:
    History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. Sometimes people say, “Here is something new!” But actually it is old; nothing is ever truly new. We don’t remember what happened in the past, and in future generations, no one will remember...

    An ol' man named Simeon....

    Luke 2:25 And there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him. And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law, then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said, "Now Lord,

  • The Humanity of Jesus

    The Humanity of Jesus

    Luke 4:1-13 records that Jesus, prior to the start of His ministry, submitted Himself to being tested by Satan. Presumably, Satan was unwilling to entrust this task to even his most accomplished minion. Surely, he wanted to handle Jesus personally. We read that after he failed in his attempt to exploit the hunger and weakness caused by Jesus' 40-day fast, Satan next offered Him a bribe: sovereign power over the entire earth--if He would but bow down and worship Him:

  • The Christ of Christmas

    The Christ of Christmas

    And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. (Luke 1:30-31) The world was dark and seemingly void of God, much like the world today. Everyone seemed to be holding their breath and listening, but there was nothing except silence and a lifetime of waiting. Scholars will tell you that 400 years passed between the writing of the Old and New Testament. That is a v...

  • Another dream combined with more miracles
    by miepie
    This is the sequence to my previous article "Miracles and a dream". I had another dream a few nights ago. It was about Charles and I taking a day's trip on the train. We went all the way down south to see as much of the country as possible. Train cards are available at local stores that are less expensive in the summer and fall. Two people can then travel across the whole country cheaper than the price of a single fair from the train station in winter or spring. I also dreamed that we we...

  • Two spirits, one space
    by Senormac
    When I moved to this area of Oregon from Southern California, I was keenly aware of the different "spirits" that were here. People are friendly but also people are into a lot of weird occult, lifestyle, and earth energy practices. The tree huggers shop at the same organic grocery stores that the Buddists shop at and the Amazonian mystism followers ride their bicycles on the same path as cannabis growers. In the yearly city celebration parade a more eclectic group of folks you will not see, from...

  • A time to pray
    by Graham Hickey
    Is it a time to pray?

    Very often as I journey through the day I hear of groups that are setting up against the Christian faith, or I see other faiths doing things really well. This screams out at me. As a Christian church these things can be missing in our worship and life, and perhaps through highlighting other faiths. Is God is trying to compel us to act? Jesus prayed before he started his earthly ministry (before he was baptised), and before he was arrested to be crucified. ...

  • Freedom
    by brakelite
    Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. (Isaiah 55:6,7) The principles and concepts that under-gird promises such as quoted above echo across the pages of the Holy Bible from the first book, Genesis, to the final pages of Revelation. They reveal a Creator God who, despite being despi...

  • What is Being "Christlike?"
    by Sojourner
    Someone recently asked if remaining silent about things like homosexuality and atheism is not more "Christlike" than speaking out against them--just love them, and be silent about what is displeasing to God. In that regard, we might ask if Jesus Himself--the very embodiment of God's love--was silent about the dangers of hell. Did His message not declare eternal judgment the final estate of those failing to repent and seek after the kingdom of God? Did He not warn His hearers that they would perish...

  • A Pearl of Wisdom
    by Sojourner
    As most people know, pearls, unlike most precious gems formed by geological forces, are the result of a biological process that occurs within various mollusks, including the oyster. Different species of mollusks produce pearls in a wide variety of shapes and colors, varying in beauty and value. A perfectly round pearl with just the right size, color, texture and iridescence is very rare, making such specimens highly prized and valuable. Whether pearls are produced naturally in the wild or met...
