DAY OF PENTECOST

Sunday 19th May 2013 is the Holy Day of Pentecost. A further indepth study into this day will be posted at a later date, but if you would like to look to God’s word for instruction here are just a few scriptural references to study: Exodus 23:14-16 Exodus 34:10-28 Leviticus 23:9-22 Numbers 28:26-31 Deuteronomy 16:9-12 […]

Lessons from nature

Spring is here. New growth is starting to appear – things that looked dead over winter are suddenly showing signs of life and there is a promise of colour, beauty, and food just ahead. There is so much to say about God’s creation – so many analogies to consider, lessons to meditate on, things to […]

Graciousness in times of trouble

I am sure I am not the only one who sometimes feels overwhelmed. I live a pretty quiet life but there are certain times when situations out of the ordinary come flying at me from all directions and I am unable to find the “pause” button.  Now, I would like to say that I handle […]

Removing leaven from my home and what it means to me

Is physically removing leaven from my home an “old testament” unnecessary act? Or is it valuable to spiritual growth? As I go through cleaning out all the little crumbs from every nook and cranny of my home I have plenty of time to think about the various spiritual analogies that can teach me valuable lessons.  […]

Letters to our children

We have been blessed with two little children and I occasionally write short letters to them, even though they are not old enough to read yet.  My purpose for writing these letters is to record their funny little antics in writing so that they (and we), can enjoy reading about them in the years to […]

Bible Lessons for Children & Educational Resources (external links)

If anyone is interested in finding accurate Bible based (NOT mainstream Christian) educational resources for their children or grandchildren, I have listed below a few links to websites that provide really good lessons.  You will not find any lessons here about Easter or Christmas, Valentine’s Day or any other man-made pagan-originated holiday – instead you […]

To me the Bible is…

Doesn’t everyone need some form of measuring tool in their life? Who or what do you measure yourself against? A family member, a peer, friend, colleague, neighbor, societal expectation, a fantasized ideal of oneself? Well, for me the Bible is my measuring tool. It sets the guidelines, the expectations, the moral compass, and the goals […]

Christ’s Sacrifice for me

As the world around me prepares for the Easter holidays, I am preparing to keep the Passover. Strange? Not at all, if you really understand the significance of the Passover and recognise Jesus Christ as our Saviour. I have been keeping the Passover service for well over 10 years now, but it has only been […]

The end-time and our children

I recently had a “stop the world – I want to get off” moment. This was when I heard on the news that a certain government somewhere in the world was considering legalising currently illegal drugs because research hasn’t adequately shown that these drugs can be harmful, and fighting against illegal drug use isn’t worth […]

What about “the Trinity”?

I will begin with the end. I will conclude on a personal note.  I am personally very thankful that my Father sacrificed His Son to bear the death penalty for me. I am also immensely thankful that my older brother Jesus the Christ sought Our Father’s will and did not fear losing His physical life. […]
