  • 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...

  • The God Who Sees Me

    The God Who Sees Me

    Isn't it interesting that we say we believe that God is sovereign, He loves us, He sees everything and knows everything, yet our prayers tell another story. Have you ever noticed how when trouble comes our way, we cry out to him in fear as if He has no clue what's going on and can't even hear our cries. Not only that but our prayers prove that we seem to think God, our Father and Savior, doesn't really care what's happening to us. Now before you assume that I'm calling us all faithless, please...

  • 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...

  • Power Less

    Power Less

    Over the last several months the Lord has been teaching me about trusting Him to do what He does. Ya know the old saying; we can't do anything but plant seeds and water, as it is written, "it is God who gives the increase." One recent afternoon the Lord was kind enough to help me understand this even further. I suddenly found myself feeling very small and weak, not physically, just in life in general. Oddly enough it felt pretty good, feeling so small was quite enjoyable, to be perfectly honest. Th...

  • It cometh to you as the eternal, O Lord God, the Word, and for her country.

    It cometh to you as the eternal, O Lord God, the Word, and for her country.

    The title of this article is taken from Psalm 119:89 translated like a ping pong ball in time. Behold the permenace of the Word of God: from Aramaic to English, to Irish, to Latin, then back to plain English. The sweet frosting on the cake is this translation was not done by a scholar with a degree or a linguist rife with discernment. Instead, it was done by a machine. It is refreshing to realize the Bible is more than prose. The word of God is, has been, and always will be, established firmly in h...

  • Word Portraits

    Word Portraits

    We are all essentially anonymous on this board, and only reveal more of ourselves to those we want to befriend, and to whom we wish to know more about us. Few are willing to even share a photo of themselves on their profile page. Yet, we actually reveal ourselves graphically to everyone here, in a way we don't often think about: in the manner and tone of our posts. We actually paint a "portrait" of ourselves that others can see--with the words we use, and the spirit that is conveyed by them. Jesus...

    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

  • Sons of God

    Sons of God

    It has often been stated by many in the Church that we are sons and daughters of God. That we have been adopted by God and we are the Children of God. Though this was easy to accept, it was the understanding of what it meant that seemed to lack in me. But after a recent encounter with a non-Christian claiming that we are all children of God, knowing this is not so, I was forced to re-examine what it means to be a child of God. The question “What does it mean to be a child of God?” echoed in m...

  • 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...

  • The Wall

    The Wall

    On October 7, 1801, the Danbury Baptists Association wrote a letter to President Thomas Jefferson in which they sought assurance that the Constitution included a provision protecting religious freedoms for all. Their concern was no doubt predicated on memories of the oppressive rule of "the king's religion," and they wanted to make certain that the new charter they were now living under would never permit a state church to again intrude into the sanctity of an individual's personal relationship...

    "It's Time", 22 April. Dit was 'n mooi en 'n groot dag, maar watter perspektief moet mens koester?

  • 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...

  • Miracles and a dream
    by miepie
    Daddy gave me a dream. It was about the Pharisee and the man who smote his breast (Luke 18). He put me on the top of the Temple, and let me see them clearly. I asked questions and He answered me. It was so beautiful that I just enjoyed being up there. Daddy explained a lot to me and then I indulged those answers with hunger for more. I didn't understand why God gave me that opportunity until a few days later. While I was having a little argument with my husband, (happens in the best marriages too),...

  • How the Judges of Israel Overlapped
    by Cyberseeker
    The history of the Judges bridges the time from the Exodus to the Kingdom of Israel, however, when we sum up the rule of the Judges, a problem arises. Add them all up, plus the times of oppression such as the Midianite period of seven years, then tack on the forty years in the desert plus the reigns of Saul and David, and what do we get? 640! On face value, that's about 160 years longer than the Exodus to Solomon as stated in the official record of the Kings. (1 Kings 6:1) There is a reason. T...

  • 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. ...
