SWEAT LIKE BLOOD “Leaving there, He went, as He often did, to Mount Olives. The disciples followed Him. When they arrived at the place, He said, ‘Pray that you don’t give in to temptation.’ “He pulled away from them about a stone’s throw, knelt down and prayed, ‘Father, remove this cup from me. But please, not what I want. What …Continue reading →


Molly is a very clean little dog – except for her paws! I bath her every second week, an event which, strangely enough, she doesn’t mind. Fortunately, she doesn’t smell like a dog and she doesn’t have the habit of rolling in smelly stuff, so a fortnightly bath is sufficient to keep her sweet and clean. However, we live in …Continue reading →


Aren’t you glad the “silly season” has come and gone? I noticed something different this year. The words of some of the most well-known and well-loved carols were changed to promote products. I also noticed that there were far fewer shops blaring out Christmas carols this year than last year. Is the world finally recognising that Christmas is not about …Continue reading →


Have you ever wondered what it must have been like, under the Old Covenant, to have had no access to God except through the high priest and not without a sacrifice? No intimate heart fellowship with the Father! No reassurance of the Father’s love! No access to the throne of grace! But…and I was taught never to begin a sentence …Continue reading →


Dear Family We don’t hear too much about “redemption” these days. It’s a word used almost exclusively in churchy circles by theologians which we don’t really understand. The Apos-tle Paul wrote in Ephesians 1:7,8 “In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the rich-es of God’s grace 8 that he lavished on us …Continue reading →


D ear Family The night when Jesus reclined at the table with His disciples (yes, they reclined and didn’t sit neatly in a row on chairs as portrayed in that famous “Last Supper” painting of Leonardo Da Vinci in 1494—so much for those hidings to keep my elbows off the table) and told them that the cup of wine which …Continue reading →

It’s an exciting time to live in. We no longer have to spend hours pouring over a multitude of books in order to access information. Now it’s right …Continue reading →

THE POWER OF THE CROSS THE BLOOD OF JESUS SPEAKS A BETTER WORD THAN THE BLOOD OF ABEL You have not come to a mountain that can be touched and that is burning with fire . . . But you have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. You have come to thousands …Continue reading →

The Power Of The Cross – Our Consciences Cleansed From Dead Works

THE POWER OF THE CROSS  OUR CONSCIENCES CLEANSED FROM DEAD WORKS The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. How much more, then, will the blood of Christ who, through the eternal Spirit offered Himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences …Continue reading →

The Power Of The Cross – They Overcame Him By The Blood

THE POWER OF THE CROSS THEY OVERCAME HIM BY THE BLOOD Spiritual warfare is big on the agenda of Christians today. Many “weird and wonderful” teachings abound about spiritual warfare – most of which originate from the Old Testament, as though the death of Jesus means nothing when it comes to the devil. People do prayer walks and Jericho marches; …Continue reading →
