It’s all about Jesus (Christmas Message #2)

It’s all about Jesus (Christmas Message #2)

December 23, 2020

It’s all about Jesus! I want us to forget the problems of 2020, and focus on Jesus, our problem-solver! Let’s remember the Christ of Christmas. Just as when we take Communion, we remember the death and resurrection of Jesus, so at Christmas we must remember Jesus divested Himself of all His heavenly glory: the ‘Word became flesh and dwelt among us’. The angel instructed Joseph, “You shall call His Name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” The very Name of Jesus means salvation: salvation from our sins; salvation from our sicknesses; salvation from all that troubles us.

Christ IN us (Christmas Message #1)

Christ IN us (Christmas Message #1)

December 16, 2020

I want to encourage you this Christmas with the Words of Jesus, “Be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28.20.) Whatever hardship you are experiencing, Christ is with you! Although 2020 has been especially difficult with pandemic, lockdown and isolation, it doesn’t change the message of Christmas, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord.” I want to remind you that this Christmas we are celebrating that Christ lives in you! He is with you and will be until that day when He takes us into the Kingdom. His promise is that He will never leave or forsake you.

God will never fail you

God will never fail you

December 7, 2020

Faith is EVIDENCE. Not just the miracle. It’s faith itself which become the EVIDENCE, the SUBSTANCE of things which we don’t have but which we are hoping for. Why so often do we Christians look first for the material answers and don’t look to the spiritual? To God! We would rather go to something we can see and which we think we can depend on. Just as Isaiah said, “Why do you look to the number of chariots, to the men in the army?” They are not God! They are only flesh, and flesh can fail. But God CANNOT EVER, EVER FAIL YOU! 

Between two decisions

Between two decisions

November 23, 2020

The challenge is, who is the real God? We’re faced with a major issue today. Many of us listening and watching this broadcast know the reality of God and His Power. But our nation doesn’t know Him, they are serving their own false gods, they’ll follow their own leaders, fashion and celebrity. They’re not seeking God, they’re ‘sitting on a fence’. We all must decide whom we will serve. 

God’s supply is inexhaustible

God’s supply is inexhaustible

November 20, 2020

When we trust God, our bread and water, the basic necessities, everything we need for life, will always be there. The Power and the Anointing of the Holy Spirit will never run dry. It doesn’t matter how much I use the Holy Spirit, how much I pray, how many miracles I see, that precious cruse of oil of the Holy Spirit will never, ever run out. God’s supply is inexhaustible. I KNOW that! I have no fear of the future. I have no fear that the miracles of the past will diminish and go away. God has promised that He will never leave or forsake us, so we may boldly say: "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear."

The Lord God Creator

The Lord God Creator

November 2, 2020

Our God is the Lord God who created Heaven and earth. We call Him Father, yet He is the greatest Power ever known in the universe! The Creator! Who is God? The word for God in Genesis is plural, Elohim. We understand Him as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus has been existent from before the beginning of time, the ‘I AM’. He doesn’t change! Understanding God as Creator is integral to comprehending His character: the Prophet Jeremiah says of Him, 'Sovereign Lord, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for You' (32.17).

“Lord, show us the Father”

“Lord, show us the Father”

Who is God? What is the Trinity? People have such strange ideas of who God is! When we were boys, my older brother thought Heaven was ‘like sitting on a damp cloud with your feet in butter’! I don’t know where he got that idea from!!! But people imagine God as an ‘old man sitting on a cloud’!!! Or they don’t think of God as relevant at all. That’s why He sent His Son Jesus, that we might understand who He is! That’s why Jesus said, “If you’ve seen Me, you’ve seen the Father!” They ARE One!

The Power of Resurrection and Obedience

The Power of Resurrection and Obedience

October 19, 2020

We need to believe in the Power of the resurrection! In Acts 3, Peter and John were brought before the whole religious council - the High Priest, his kindred, the rulers, elders and scribes - for questioning, "By what power, by what name have you healed this lame man?" And Peter replied, "If we are being examined about this man and how he was healed, let it be known to you and to the whole of Israel that by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth whom God raised from the dead, even by Him does this man stand, totally healed!" The religious leaders then responded, "Did we not strictly command you that you should not preach in this Name? But you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine!" But in v29 Peter and the other Apostles answered, "We ought to obey God rather than men." Our allegiance is to Jesus, the Son of the living God, who was raised from the dead; it is Him we must obey!  

The wedding feast of Christ

The wedding feast of Christ

October 9, 2020

The challenge to all of us in this pandemic is, how are we going to respond? In Deuteronomy 4.27 Moses says to Israel, "The Lord will scatter you among the nations and you will be left few in number among the heathen." He foresaw God's people would be scattered, under persecution. People will tell you Christ is going to return in a blaze of Glory and before He comes, there's going to be revival and multitudes saved… But that's not actually what the Scripture says! Scripture actually says that in the last days, many will turn away from their faith. Jesus Himself said, when the Son of Man comes back, will He even find faith on the earth? The challenge is to go out into the 'highways and byways' and to compel the rejected to come into the Kingdom!

Show me Your Glory (with Vinesong)

Show me Your Glory (with Vinesong)

October 2, 2020

We are living in extremely difficult times. Covid-19 has touched every part of the world. We have economic problems resulting from it. We’re facing unusual storms and earthquakes. To be called as Christians is not to live in isolation or in luxury. But I do believe all these are signs of the Coming of the Lord. 

Psalm 63.1-2 is one of my favourite Scriptures from my teenage years. David is saying, “O God, You are my God, early will I seek You, my soul thirsts for You, my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water – to see Your Power and Your Glory as I have seen You in the Sanctuary!”
