No need to steal from your family to give to God

I read an interesting chapter in David Ravenhill’s book “Surviving the Anointing” which my wife picked up at a Christian bookstore recently.

Hamornization of the Resurrection Accounts

The events following the resurrection of Christ are recorded in each of the four gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Like any report of anything, each contains only a partial report of the events. We are seeing a story reported by four different people. Looking at them, it is very hard to believe that they consulted together about what to put in the New Testament. This in fact, can be a good reason to believe the whole thing was not just cooked up for the deception of the masses.

Here is one way you could see these events fitting together my wife and I worked out.

Christian writers sought – get exposure on this site

I want to open up this site to other Christian writers. If you have a passion to write helpful words of truth to bless others, consider using this site as a platform. We are reaching a lot of people daily, and are about to go on a significant promotion campaign to reach more people.

An Australian healing ministry worth checking out

I heard a report from a friend of mine about John Mellor, an Australian evangelist powerfully used today in healing the sick. I think this is the second time I heard of this man in the last week from two different friends of mine, so I went to check out this website about the healing ministry God gave him. Those of you who are Australians know how few evangelists have survived in this country, and how hard it is to find a man of God who really moves in this realm with a pure heart.

Scriptures showing how important Holiness is to God

Holiness for the Christian means being like Jesus. It means being pure in heart, humble, repentant, loving, faithful, zealous for God and God’s will, honest, truthful, joyful, peaceful, patient, gracious, generous, wise, discreet, self-controlled and lots more.

It is the devil’s work to give negative connotations to the word holiness. Perhaps some of these arise from our own sense of not measuring up, or from an inner lawlessness or rebellion we secretly cherish.

What has God promised us?

“For all the promises of God in Him are “Yes,” and in Him “Amen,” to the glory of God through us. ” (2 Corinthians 1:20)

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Christ” (Ephesians 1:3)

“He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up on behalf of us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8:32)

I want to emphasise what these verses also say, that the promises of God are for those “in Him”, that is, “in Jesus Christ”.

What is God willing to do for His Children?

Who are God’s Children and what will God do for them?

“But as many as received Him, He gave them the authority to become children of God, to those who believe in His name;” (John 1:12)

If you have truly received Jesus, truly believed in His name, you have the authority to become a child of God. It does not say you automatically ARE a child of God, by believing in His name and receiving Him, but you ARE able to become one. The effective use of that authority comes as you walk with God in trust and obedience.

A Knight’s Prayer

Forever Glory, what are your thoughts?
What pray tell, are your forget me nots?
I see your promise in the beautiful rainbow,
knowing that all rain must eventually go.
On one great day, you’ll return with clouds,
in the glorious way you left earths shrouds.
Do you think of that day like a groom to be?
Among all of your bride, please remember me.
Place me on a horse to ride at your side.
Send me in your army and return like a tide.
I know when I am week that you are strong.
Will you hum this melody as your own song?
Will you dispatch angels in legions for me,
so I can return them to

A Salvation Message for Muslims

Here is a wonderful tract written by a Pakistani Christian who has spent over 42 years studying islam, researching, teaching and lecturing around the world.

Emptiness – an important key to fullness

Its a principle that I have not emphasized enough on this website: but the truth is, God is looking for EMPTY vessels to fill. “Blessed are the poor in spirit [the spiritual beggars], for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” (Matthew 5:3).

No matter how much we have received from God, God must remain our source of initiative, life and power. We cannot trust in what we have received already – be it money, anointing, connections, knowledge, income streams, or people. If we trust in those things, we may lose them.
