Return of the King -download

I love the book of Revelation. The imagery in the book is vivid, the plotline exciting and this book keeps pointing to our certain hope in Christ and the wonders of future new creation. However, it’s an often misunderstood and misused book. Revelation has become the scene of many unseemly scraps between Christians becoming dogmatic… Continue reading Return of the King -download

Did Jesus come to give us a holiday?

I saw this message the other day. It’s typical of the type of witty one liner that we Christians think makes a fantastic point, putting a bullet in licentious secularism and making the case for the Gospel. However, I fear that it has a different affect. A lot of people will see this as an… Continue reading Did Jesus come to give us a holiday?

Should we lament our lack of Psalm singing?

I love the Psalms. I love reading from them, meditating on them, preaching them and I love singing a few of them. I also enjoy spotting when other hymns and songs draw on the language and themes of the Psalms. But I don’t think that we must sing the Psalms and definitely not all of… Continue reading Should we lament our lack of Psalm singing?

Why the COVID Vaccine or a possible vaccine passport probably are not the mark of the beast

In a dystopian world, Gill Bates, tech multi-billionaire and founder of UberTough, the IT giant, has designed a vaccine that will alter your DNA, this mark will be inserted into your arm (close to your hand right) and to prove you’ve had it, you will also have to have a digital passport based on facial… Continue reading Why the COVID Vaccine or a possible vaccine passport probably are not the mark of the beast

What if someone with a lot of wealth, tech no and power, maybe someone with a name like Gill Bates was able to get a vaccine into you that changed your DNA? What if the authorities insisted we had a digital passport to prove we had been vaccinated or tested. Isn’t that like the mark… Continue reading Beasts, Dragons and a COVID vaccine passport

Coming with the clouds

For Starters Where is everything heading?  –  dream apocalyptic scenario then we have it.  A plague running rife around the world, economic melt-down, ominous noises from Russia and a few rogue states with nuclear weapons. Throw climate change into the pot and the future looks bleak.  A couple of decades ago, such factors would have… Continue reading Coming with the clouds

Shall we gather? The case for physical gathering may actually prove the opposite!

Before we go any further, I want to make it clear that I prefer to see local churches physically gather in a specific venue. There are so many reasons as to why I believe this is far better than zoom and Facebook. I long for the day when we can gather without restrictions, singing God’s… Continue reading Shall we gather? The case for physical gathering may actually prove the opposite!

#SummerIsHere

I started lockdown with a twitter hashtag #SummerIsComing. It was my way of reminding myself and perhaps others that although we were entering a dark period like winter when we would be locked away, huddled at home, these dark times would eventually pass.  We could look forward to summer coming. I said at the time… Continue reading #SummerIsHere
