  • EAGLES

    EAGLES

    We all know a bit about Eagles, so this is not another classroom to teach anyone about them. But I have been looking into characteristics of the mighty eagle and I want to share some of my thoughts. There are more than 60 species of eagles, mainly habitating in Eurasia and Africa. Outside this area, just two species (the Bald and Golden Eagles) can be found in the United States and Canada, nine more species are found in Central and South America, and three in Australia. Eagles are almost ever...

  • God Means Business

    God Means Business

    The defeat of the Israelites at Ai in Joshua 7 remains one of the most interesting passages in the book of Joshua. After having destroyed Jericho in a great victory, Joshua decides to send a much smaller army to Ai. Contrary to all expectations, the Israelites are defeated. When a despondent Joshua inquires of the Lord, God replies that the reason for the defeat is the sin of one man: Achan. Here is what God actually says to Joshua:

    11 Israel has sinned. They have violated My covenant...

  • Rock and Roll and the Western Soul

    Rock and Roll and the Western Soul

    The Burgeoning Generation of Love The highpoint of Patrick Halling’s early Pop career was undoubtedly his leadership of the string section for "All You Need Is Love", transmitted live at the height of the so-called Summer of Love on July 25th 1967. The programme, entitled "Our World", was the first satellite broadcast in history, and it secured an audience of 350 million, which was unprecedented at that time. And among those taking part were such legendary figures of the swinging sixties as Mic...

  • Adversary Nation the Beat Generation

    Adversary Nation the Beat Generation

    It would be false, indeed absurd, to suggest that the Counterculture of the 1960s was a unique historical event devoid of precedents and precursors. In fact, it was merely the latest in a long line of alternative societies that can be traced at least as far back as the 18th Century. In other words, by the time of the Hippie revolution, much of the groundwork had already been done, not least during the two immediate post-war decades. During this brief 20-year period, the Existentialists, Lettrists a...

  • Seven Chapters from a Sad Sack Loser's Life - Chapter One

    Seven Chapters from a Sad Sack Loser's Life - Chapter One

    Sometime in the early 21st Century, it occurred to David Cristiansen, and not for the first time, that he was a loser. In fact not just loser but a king-size loser, a loser among losers, a loser supreme. The contemplation that he was the best at what he did afforded him some consolation at those times of the day when his status in life meant the most to him; such as in those last few hours before he turned in for the night. Yet the fact remained he’d failed in almost every conceivable area of lif...

  • The Forbidding Entrance of Rock

    The Forbidding Entrance of Rock

    It seems incredible that a force of such seismic power and influence as Led Zeppelin should emerge from the relative innocence of the London Blues and session music scenes of the sixties, but then a similar thing could be said of British Rock as a whole. What was it that transformed an interest among young men of largely middle class origins in the bleak brooding music of the Blues into a musical movement which took America and the world at large by storm in the late '60s and early '70s? That's...

  • Bible Study Discipleship of the Body of Christ

    Bible Study Discipleship of the Body of Christ

    Bible study notes written up after the class and emailed out to all those participating in the study. God bless you all. During the previous week’s notes I mentioned that we will begin to read through and discuss Matthew 10:16-26. Posted below are the scriptures that we did actually read through and discuss and will continue deeper into the remaining scriptures in the following weeks. In prayer, I was asking God where else and what else was there to be brought forth in this study about Disciples...

  • Weimar Shadow of Future Things

    Weimar Shadow of Future Things

    Introduction Many cultures have made monumental contributions to the development of our great Western Judaeo-Christian civilisation, not least that of Germany, one of the most purely artistic, poetic, musical and spiritual nations in modern history. Yet it could be said that the greatest and most blessed nations are those most liable to decadence, a word which seems to seems to suggest both moral decline and a dark, sinister glamour; and few societies have been more associated with this latter...

  • Of Rocks, Gates, and Keys

    Of Rocks, Gates, and Keys

    Since I love explaining this story... A gate was a stronghold of a city. It was built nothing like the gates to castles and castle complexes like we see in the movies. It often was a labyrinth with many turns where there were parapets along the whole labyrinth before you got to the door as well so that a marauding army would attack anywhere but a gate. Jesus was a bit of a different Schmeeka Rabbi (highest order of rabbi) than the other ones. He would often take trips (vacations) into Roman/...

  • From Avant Garde to Global Village

    From Avant Garde to Global Village

    Introduction It could justifiably be stated that we are currently living in a Western World whose moral world view owes much to values which until recently were associated with progressives operating within the arts, politics, philosophy, religion etc., and that this morality remains more or less constant, affecting everything from top to bottom in our society, despite sporadic shifts of power from the political left to the right. At the same time, traditional morality – founded on the West’s ...

  • It's Time - 22 April 2017

    "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. ...
