Operating as usual
[09/13/21] In the Old Testament God meets us where we are, in the New, we meet Him where He is!
[06/28/21] What is the purpose of a Church service, why bother? Everything that happens in a "service" is holding up a mirror in which we see ourselves. We are affirmed into what we are shown, right or wrong, and transformed by seeing the Glory of God in the Face of Jesus Christ, which is our true identity!
[06/21/21] To truly love God is to love what God loves and it is us which God loves most. Therefore, in the pursuit of the love of God we must begin with ourselves. When we truly love ourselves then we see ourselves as God does. Because we are the image of God we can only love God as much as we first love ourselves. If we do not love ourselves we are seeing a false image that is not of God. If we saw, with eyes truly opened, who we really are, then we would have no choice but to love ourselves. If we do not love ourselves then we do not have the truth.
Luke 19;10 For the Son of Man has come to seek and save the lost

[08/21/20] People unknowingly pursue drugs, materialism, substance abuse and promiscuity in a misguided chase to recapture identity and satisfaction. These behaviours offer any number of momentary indulgences but are often followed by devastation to health and homes, ending in broken families, poverty, suicide and destruction for future generations. If we look into the lives of those affected, we can see how often they were products of a traumatic and abusive childhood. Once you understand their loss of identity and their need for affirmation and acceptance, we could see that we would be in their place if we had walked in their shoes.
[08/18/20] Christianity was originally called good news. It used to be a happy message that people wanted to be a part of. The original version of the gospel seemed too good to be true. That’s why it spread like wildfire. Heaven as a free gift. Your sinfulness abolished. Effortless union with God. Amazing benefits! Easy, instant soul purge. Let me tell you, if the gospel you’ve heard is not too good to be true, it probably isn’t. The frequency of the gospel always inspires, always brings life and hope. The flavor and sound of the true gospel never puts rule and regulation and heavy trips on you. Never makes you feel you have to live up to any systematic expectations for acceptance. It always encourages, always hopes, always trusts, and always loves.
[02/16/20] To all who would like to visit Bethel next Sunday, we will have our meeting/ discussion/service at 2000hrs .......
[01/01/20] This year is the year of God's favour.... oh wait.... everyday of the year has God's favour over you!! Why?? Because it's the new covenant.... because of Jesus, His favour is unconditional!! It's yours , it's grace! Have a great New year!!
[12/30/19] Tired of repeatedly striving and struggling to 'please' God or 'reach' up to a distant God, STOP and remember that He has come down to us, Emmanuel, God with us, forever embracing us in our confusion and doubts.
[12/20/19] To know that just as Jesus is in the Father, we are in Him, and He is in us, all by His doing, is the surest and most amazing thing there is in eternity....John 14.20
[10/12/19] When thinking about how good the good news of the gospel is, the danger has never been to exaggerate the good news, but always to underestimate it... just like the Queen Of Sheba who said of Solomon that the half had not been told her of him....
[09/26/19] Sometimes we think we are right about God just because it's always been taught like that, maybe we don't have a handle on God like we think we do & have a few things to learn, instead of' knowing' about Jesus, let's trust in Jesus that, despite our doubts, He is with us on this journey
[08/31/19] Love is a fortress where everyone feels protected rather than exposed. Jesus is that fortress.
[08/21/19] God knows you from the very moment he formed you in your mothers womb - this applies to everyone - He crafted you individually and personally and even now He knows you more than you know yourself.... and despite what you think of your failures and shortcomings, which we all have plenty of, God still loves you more than you can ever imagine....
[07/21/19] See yourself intertwined with Jesus, woven together, your strength lies in your togetherness, everyday is a joint adventure, He is for you!!
[06/21/19] Your salvation is not a reward for good behavior! It was a grace thing from start to finish; you had no hand in it.
[06/06/19] You are thought of more than you think, you are loved more than you can imagine…..
[06/04/19] Meeting tomorrow at 7pm at Bethel to discuss the wild and reckless love God has for us.... join the adventure...He is for you not against you!!
[05/28/19] God is not mad at you, He is mad about you (see Isa 54:10).
Who is ‘in Christ.’ ?? Is quite an important question!!
This union is the key that unlocks the mystery of the Mirror message; it is not possible to understand the Bible or redemption in any other light.
Of God's doing are you in Christ! 1 Corinthians 1:30
In the mind of God you have always been associated in Christ! Eph 1:4
Some people are not more in Christ than others - others may just not know it yet! ❤️
[05/09/19] Maybe the Lord's 'battle' is for us to sit at His table in the presence of my enemies as my cup overflows....? Effortless ... resting..... PS 23....
[03/26/19] Meeting tomorrow at 7pm to discuss Romans 1.. does God choose or do we choose....?? And many other questions... all welcome
[03/19/19] Random thought.... in rev 21.14, Now the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb, : will it be Matthias, Paul (Or Judas) name as the 12th...?
[03/08/19] How many times have you believed that you are inherently bad and rotten.?? Is that the truth or a lie??.... arent we all made in His image?... isnt His design in us perfect? Lets live and believe that we are whole and complete in Jesus... He is our reference point all the time!!
[02/19/19] I'm fully satisfied with the finished work of the cross. JESUS has done it all. Do we understand it all?? Maybe not... can we trust Him that he has ? Sure we can!
You are God’s Valentine!
“My love, you are completely beautiful. Nothing to be improved; you’re totally ten out of ten!” 😁❤️
