Reconciliation through recreation

Reconciliation through recreation

January 11, 2021

If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has passed away, all things have become new! Don’t question it, don’t doubt it. If we have become a new creature, then we have lost all ties to the old. People come to me and I have to tell them, if you have come to Christ, the past is forgiven, it’s dead. That’s what God says. But some people have been told that, because of their past, and also because of their parents and ancestors and what they have done in their past, they are not free. No! This is a lie. 

When you come to Christ the WHOLE of the past is dead, gone. Whether you were a drug addict, an alcoholic, or whether in your family tree there was witchcraft or freemasonry – all that is gone! You are literally a new creation by faith in Christ. You do not have a tattered, battered old life, but a NEW life in Christ. By faith in Him, we become sons and daughters of God. It's a miracle!

Reconciled to God through Jesus

Reconciled to God through Jesus

We have hope, because 2 Corinthians 5:18 says, ‘All things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation.’ When God made us in the beginning, we were one with Him! And through Christ we have been accepted into the Beloved.

Why is God allowing this pandemic? I don’t believe God has sent it, but I think it’s been permitted – for a reason! Just as here in 1 Kings you have three years of drought – in order that people may finally come to a decision, who will they serve? I believe Britain is in such a sinful godless state that God has to demonstrate and show His Power today. As Christians we have not only to pray, but to accept a challenge. It’s in my heart, it’s what I am praying over, that God will do something so incredible, so miraculous that there is no question – ONLY GOD COULD DO IT!

The Lord God Creator

The Lord God Creator

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).

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 End-Time Harvest (with Vinesong)

The End-Time Harvest (with Vinesong)

September 4, 2020

The return of Christ is sooner than we think! The Holy Spirit has been poured out; we are living in the days of the latter rain. Why do we see such incredible miracles? Why are so many coming to Christ around the world? In Joel 3:13 the prophet says, ‘Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe.’ I believe with all my heart we’ve got to take advantage of every possibility, every opportunity; time is limited. Stop waiting for the future, today is the day of salvation! I’ve never waited for some future moment; I’ve always believed in doing the task now while we have the time and the opportunity. The Bible is very clear, multitudes are waiting in the valley of decision (Joel 3:14); I believe even this pandemic is being used by God to bring multitudes to salvation. Wake up Church! Let’s take advantage of what God is doing now!

God is now here! (with Vinesong)

God is now here! (with Vinesong)

So many think God is ‘nowhere’, but I want to tell you, God is ‘now here’. He is in the midst of your tribulations. ‘For the Lord your God is a merciful God; He will not forsake you, nor forget the covenant He made to your fathers’ (Deut 4:31). God is faithful to His promises! We have a covenant relationship with God! The New Testament is literally a new covenant between God and man, typified by the very name Jesus was given, ‘Emmanuel, God with us.’ The wonderful truth of this covenant is: ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.’ Jesus lived and worked with us; the thing I love about Jesus is that He spent 33 years living like us. So many think that up until the age of 30, Jesus did nothing; but that is not true: for 30 years He was here; He went to school, He had a job, He paid taxes; He lived as we live today, in the routine and drudgery of life. The ministry of Jesus began after He had lived amongst us for 30 years. That is why Jesus cares for us and understands our lives.

We must come to God with a positive expectation of faith, believing that when we pray according to His Will, not only does He hear us, but He will answer! God rewards faith! Far too many people pray without any real belief that God will answer them. I want to remind you, even when we pray the sinner’s prayer, we must believe that God has heard and answered us. The writer to the Hebrews said, ‘He who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him’ (11.6).

Come unto Jesus and receive rest for your soul

Come unto Jesus and receive rest for your soul

July 17, 2020

We all have problems we need Jesus to resolve; healing, deliverance, forgiveness… stop struggling and come into His open arms. So many have secret problems, too deep, too hurtful, you cannot open up. Talk to Jesus. It is the only way to be set free and experience the release you so desperately desire. We all need to be loved: God so loved you that He gave His only Son. – Receive these words deep within your heart: you are loved by God. Jesus promises: “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”

Before I pray for you and the nation, I want to share three significant events which happened when Jesus died. Be blessed and be encouraged this Easter. ‘In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace.. and [may] the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints’ (Ephesians 1.7,18).
