Who is on the Lord's side? Those who love their enemies - and go to war on their account! David Andrew reflect on God's kindly warfare ...

As disciples of Jesus, we have good news – the very best news – for our enemies... and unless we go to war, we cannot obey God's command to love them.

A glimpse of Daniel's prayer life raises important questions for our own

We are not alone in the universe. No, our space explorers have not finally discovered another inhabited planet…

Jerusalem: everyone has an opinion. As a Christian, have you fallen out with God?

Shalom from Jerusalem, Israel's eternal capital! Last year ended with political fireworks! On December 6th US President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, advancing the fulfillment of Zechariah 12:2-3.

Since the 1960s there has been a subtle infiltration of ungodliness into Western society. It is time Christians woke up to it.

Back in September, I wrote of the ‘enemy within’, the subtle influence of what is called ‘Cultural Marxism’ in our culture, with the express objective of wrenching Western society away from its JudeoChristian roots, particularly targeting the structures of the traditional family. You can remind yourself of this article here 1.

We speak the words - but what are our shoulders saying?

“Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless,not my will, but yours, be done.” And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.” (Luke 22:41-44 – emphasis added)

Too often, we parrot Jesus’ anguished prayer as though it were a prayer of weak resignation, when, in fact, it was a war-cry of obedience.

The search for identity is a key driver in our society, yet the truth is greater than most could ever imagine

“Blessed be Your Glorious Name, and may it be exalted above all blessings and praise.  You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you” (Nehemiah 9:5b-6).

Want to know Jesus… or know Him better? Revelation is the Father’s answer to your seeking…

Revelation is dramatic with mindblowing imagery.  Some are frightened by it, others obsessed by it. The book opens with a blessing for those who both read and act on what is written in it. It closes with a warning that to add or take away from it endangers our place in the Holy City.

Satanist abuse is ‘rife’ in the UK but so too are high-level cover-ups… 

On 6 October 2017 Wiltshire Police published their report regarding Operation Conifer, the investigation into allegations of child sexual abuse and satanist ritual abuse (SRA) against the former UK Prime Minister, Sir Edward Heath.

We are in a great spiritual battle but many of us have left our primary weapon, the Sword of the Spirit,at home

Truth has become public enemy number one around the globe. Barnabas Fund reports… 

UK: seven dying freedoms 1 “The Church has a duty to protect the free practice of all faiths in this country.” Her Majesty The Queen, Lambeth Palace, February 2012

Has God ‘spirited-away’ His promises to Israel’s patriarchs?

I write these words 24 hours after President Trump issued his order to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, conscious that by the time they are published, the situation will probably have developed and changed…

Modern-day disciples in Pakistan are following in the footsteps of the Master

During His earthly ministry, Jesus spent much time mixing with the poor and the marginalized, demonstrating God’s great love for them. Jesus always looked out for the least of the least, the poorest of the poor, those whom most people – including “respectable” religious people – ignored or despised. He was sensitive to their needs and sought to serve them.

How closely do we follow our Master rather than being an embarrassment to him?

Gary Clayton introduces us to Beryl – not the precious stone of Revelation 21:20 or the mineral with the chemical formula Be3Al2(SiO3)6, but an old work colleague, and the question she poses to true believers…
