Humility has to come from our deepest being, from our true identity, as someone who has greatly offended God and doesn’t deserve to live, yet has obtained grace and mercy in Jesus Christ, because there’s nothing worse than fake humility.


Pray for those who are suffering as if it were you who is suffering.

Identify with the suffering of others. Consider what it’s like when a guy is standing over there aiming his automatic rifle at you because his job is to kill you? Consider how it feels. Or when shells are falling all around your house, with a deafening, ear-splitting boom, and shaking everything inside you? Consider it.

“Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves are in the body also.” (Hebrews 13:3)


The fact that the LORD told us what the signs of His coming will be means we are to watch out for those signs.


Does anyone think they can escape from God after they die?


He gives you every breath, so give Him your heart and mind.


In Christ you have everything you need.

“…You are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” (Col. 2:10)


If you’re on Twitter you’ll know that everyone moralizes, without exception. So, whose morality is correct? How will you know if your morality is not, in fact, immorality? Where is your moral index? Is there an absolute standard on which your morality leans?


You know how you take note of the words and actions of others? And sometimes your observations and subsequent assumptions or conclusions about them are quite detailed? Well, it works the other way as well, and people are taking notes on your life.


In some supposedly civilized countries its becoming illegal to preach on the streets.

Whole churches need to go out en-masse and preach, and say, ‘Arrest us all, if you want’.


The first step for a church to seek revival would be that the majority of that church pray unitedly as one voice, earnestly desiring revival in their own lives and in the assembly.

I can’t see how their request would be denied.

Another step would be if the majority of the assembly went out together to preach the Gospel in public. Mobilization.

Prayer and fasting for revival.

“As a large fire begins with kindling of small twigs and branches, even so a large revival is preceded by the prayers of a few hidden seemingly insignificant souls.”

—Gary Amirault


Are we overwhelmed with thankfulness to God?

Or underwhelmed, suffering from thanklessness?


We’re either seeking the LORD, or excluding the LORD.


Will you need to check with your friends first to find out if it’s okay for you to become a Christian?


If God is pleased with you, then what more could you ask for?


In Heaven, everything is planned, designed and made by God. No aspect of it was designed by man. Yet, who knows what things we will do billions of years from now? And, even if we do make things in the eternal future, those things are sure to be perfect expressions of the mind and nature of God, as we ourselves will be.

You don’t need money in Heaven.


If a church is dead the primary reason could only be that the members are not filled with the Holy Spirit.

This is assuming the members are saved to begin with.

How do we define “dead” in this case?

Or how do we define an “alive” church?

It won’t be human energy, enthusiasm or excitement which makes a church “alive” and not “dead”.

It won’t be uninhibited displays of joy or rejoicing, either.

Just shouting and dancing or pogo-stick jumping doesn’t mean a church is alive.

Nor does quietness or subdued actions mean it is dead.

It’s more to do withr love, freedom, people have a living relationship with Jesus and boldly share His word. Etc.

If the congregation are stunned mullets… who just shuffle in, sit through a sermon, then go home, that’s dead. Even if the sermon is very good.

Compare with 1 Corinthians 14.

This kind of church:

“Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others judge. But if anything is revealed to another who sits by, let the first keep silent. For you can all prophesy one by one, that all may learn and all may be encouraged.” (1 Cor. 14:29-31)


Humanistic reasoning sometimes seems reasonable, until you bring God into the picture.


“The ultimate form of idolatry is humanism, which regards man as the measure of all things.”

— RC Sproul


Church tradition only propagates the purpose of the religion, and not the purpose of God.


The proof of repentance is you no longer do what you’ve repented of.


No one can seek the face of the LORD and be disappointed, can they?


Doing the Lord’s work is simply the outcome of the Lord working in you.


Man’s natural spiritual state is deep darkness, total blindness, like groping around in a pitch black cave.

In this context Jesus says, ‘I am the Light of the world, whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but have the light of life’.

This scripture tells us (in John 3) that those in the deep darkness are aware of the existence of the LIGHT because they “hate the light”.


Someone just told me the warnings in the Bible don’t apply to believers.

This kind of arrogance is exactly what we are warned of falling into.


When moral depravity in a society becomes a virtue then it’s protected, and anyone calling it out must be evil. A total reversal of reality, where evil is good, and good, evil.


God is exactly as described in the Bible.


It’s folly to look for life in things which are dead.


“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.

And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.” (2 Cor. 11:13-15)

So, satan has “his ministers” as well. He must have thought that if Jesus can have a church, then so can he.

What would be the purpose of satan having his own church, which masquerades as the church of Christ, and “his ministers” masquerading as apostles, prophets and pastors?

It would seem it is to play a really bad joke on people: to make them feel religious or spiritual, when in fact they’re still lost in their sins.

It’s to get these people trusting in anything except the risen Lord Jesus and His finished work on the Cross.

Trusting in popes, mary, saints, mass, baptism, miracle workers etc.

Or trusting in oneself.

Trusting in ones keeping or observance of the law.

Trusting in church attendance.

Or trusting that they belong to the “true church”.

That their organization is the “true church”.

Satan’s ministers get people sucked into any of these beliefs.

(By the way, in scripture the original word for “minister” is simply “servant”, not a clergyman. Anyone who serves is a servant/minister.)


Cheap Grace

If you murdered someone, and the family of that person forgave you, would you then feel that that would mean it’s okay to murder the rest of the family?

They forgave you, right? So, murder must not be a big deal for them, right?

… This is the logic of cheap grace.


In a friendship it makes a huge difference to you if someone doesn’t believe what you say.

Similarly, it makes a huge difference to Jesus Christ if you don’t believe what He said.


True Christians are not the way they are because they are naturally better than anyone else, but because they have received God’s mercy, and had their sins washed away by Jesus blood, and have been transformed by the Holy Spirit and God’s word.

So, the most wicked person you know may also become a true Christian.

“For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” (1 Cor. 15:3-4)

Christ died for our sins.

This includes every category of sin.

Whatever the most evil, degrading, disgusting or hateful sin you can imagine, Christ died for that sin as well.

This means forgiveness is available, if you can believe Him, and are willing to repent.

Everything between you and God was settled on that Cross, when Jesus suffered, bled and died for you. That one transaction decides everything concerning how God deals with you and works in your life.

“For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.” (Heb. 10:14)


“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19)


The HOPE that’s in my heart:

I didn’t put it there.

My friends didn’t put it there.

The world didn’t put it there.

Jesus Christ put it there.


If a prisoner were pardoned, and the door of his cell opened, he wouldn’t be congratulated, honored or accredited with having earned his salvation by walking out the door. And he certainly could not boast about walking out that door, or expect any reward for doing so.

This is in answer to those who believe that man’s responsibility to repent and believe means man is earning or meriting salvation.

They think, if a man has to choose, then, if he chooses, he has earned salvation.

Or if he believes that to stay saved he must not turn away from God, then that means he is trying to stay saved by meritorious good works.

Sometimes people mockingly say that if you believe the warnings to believers in scripture concerning falling away then you must be trying to stay saved by your good works.


If the word of God doesn’t convince someone, do we think the word of man will?


God takes care of a lot of people.

He can manage it.


“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them” (Heb. 10:16)

Therefore a Liberal Christian can’t be in the New Covenant because they reject God’s moral law, and it is certainly not written in their hearts and minds.


The Holy Spirit is really into prayer.


Believing prayer is a great expression of confidence in the nature and character of God. It is an expression of trust in who He is, and what He has promised.


If a person is filled with the Holy Spirit then nothing they do should amaze us if it is the work of the Spirit in them.



Jesus Christ has only one message for this world.

And He, Himself, is that message.
