A number of people have been raising alarm bells about an implantable microchip developed by a Swedish company. They are suggesting that the microchip, used to store COVID-19 vaccine passport information and other personal data, could be the "mark of the beast" described in the Book of  […]

keep, protect, preserve...

Jesus, on the day of His arrest, told His disciples: Behold, an hour is coming, and has already come, for you to be scattered, each to his own home, and to leave Me alone.  Jn 16:32 One of the most frustrating aspects about the Christian walk is the fairly regular cycling in-and-out of relationship   […]

Christmas 2021 in Retrospect

I've noticed some churches struggling to bring forward a compelling Christmas message in light of present conditions. Traditional responses to the Christmas season used in years past just don't seem to cut it. It's almost like they don't quite "know how to be". One of the bright spots for  […]

Zechariah's message to the nations.

I was reading the Revelation to John. Particularly the account detailing the first four seals - ie. the four horsemen of the apocalypse. These four horsemen correspond to the first four of seven seals laid out in the book. So I looked and saw a white horse, and its rider held a bow. And he was given  […]

"in My name"

There are some words in the original Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek for which there are no exact equivalents in the english language. The Greek word used in John that is often translated to "name"  is one such word. John chapters 14, 15, 16, and 17 are some of the most remarkable chapters in  […]

God in the Macro. God in the Micro.

David, in his 22nd Psalm was looking into the future, when God's Kingdom would be established, when he said: All the ends of the earth      will remember and turn to the LORD. All the families of the nations      will bow down before Him. For dominion belongs to the LORD      and He rules over the  […]

"Jerusalem, Jerusalem..."

Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those sent to her, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were unwilling! Look, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you that you will not see Me again until you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.’” Matt 23:37-39

"Why do the nations rage"

As a believer, it's easy to look at some of the news headlines, and quickly become dissillusioned.  Articles like this: Finnish Bishop charged over historic Christian teachings on human sexuality And this: Canadian Senate fast-tracks bill prohibiting “conversion therapy” It's interesting that almost  […]

"And each man will sit under his own vine and under his own fig tree..."

This is what the Lord Almighty says: “Once again men and women of ripe old age will sit in the streets of Jerusalem, each of them with cane in hand because of their age. The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.” Zech 8:4 This verse in Zechariah is looking forward, not  […]
