The just shall live by faith

I heard a Christian song recently in which was sung “I will live my life for You.” It is this idea I want to investigate and preach on. Do we live our life for God? Almost all believers will say yes of course we do! Paul said in 2 Corinthians 5… 2Co 5:14 For the […]

The things that are not

If ever you want to know what God has truly called you to be and do in this current era it is found written by Paul the Apostle… 1Co 1:26 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. 1Co 1:27 But […]

Unknown Known

No eye has seen No ear has heard The things God has prepared For those who love Him… These things are freely received By the heart that is One with Jesus.   What I did not know What I did not see He has become One with me.   No division No distance No separation […]

Losing all- We already have!

In order for Paul to receive the mystery of the Gospel he first had to come face to face with his total failure as a man trying to please God. The same is true for each of us who call Christ our Lord. New wine cannot be put into old wine-skins and Paul was a […]

Levels of knowing

There are different levels of knowing. I know many people by their reputation only. Mar_6:14 Now King Herod heard of Him, for His name had become well known. And he said, “John the Baptist is risen from the dead, and therefore these powers are at work in him.” There are many people we all know […]

Finding your true self

//giphy.com/embed/l2R03sHecxjJZrKYE It came as a shock to me when I was in my early thirties to be told that the man I thought was my father was not my real father. For thirty 33 years I thought I was Dennis Rhodes son of William Rhodes. And I was, and still am. Billy Rhodes was the […]

Blessed are the pure in heart

Jesus is the Word proceeding from the Father. He did not just speak words from God, but He IS THE WORD coming from God. When Jesus the Word made flesh spoke it was the Father speaking…yet it was Jesus, for they are a perfect union of two people. We know that there is only one […]

The New Self

One of the most amazing things that the Apostle Paul taught is the New Creation. When Jesus went into the garden of Gethsemane to drink the Father’s cup, Isaiah’s words were being fulfilled. Here is just a portion of Isaiah…the whole chapter is relevant. Isa 53:4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our […]

Jesus the word made flesh

What an honour to be the one’s who are the soil that the Word is always landing upon. What a joy to receive the Word as rain upon our souls! Isa 55:10  “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it […]

We preach Christ crucified

The Apostle Paul preached Christ crucified. What does that mean? 1Co 1:23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, 1Co 1:24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. It means that Paul preached […]
