Quote; “The Saviour took upon Himself the infirmities of humanity, and lived a sinless life, that men might have no fear that because of the weakness of human nature they could not overcome.  “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1:4.   

“The prince of this world cometh,” said Jesus, “and hath nothing in me.” John 14:30. There was in Him nothing that responded to Satan’s sophistry.… Continue reading

The Monarch

The Monarch

 

An egg is laid on a very toxic plant called “Milk Weed” and shortly a greedy little caterpillar emerges and consumes so much of this toxic plant that it actually bursts out of its skin, and out comes an even bigger caterpillar, who again eats so much and grows so fast that again it splits its skin emerging bigger still, until after a few such cycles, it is now a full sized, chubby and round, a brightly stripped toxic caterpillar.

One day, the caterpillar stops eating, hangs itself upside down from a twig or leaf and spins… Continue reading

God Cares

God Cares

“The Lord tends me as a Shepherd, and I shall want for nothing.  In a place of green grass, there he has made me dwell: he has nourished me by the water of rest.  He has restored my soul: he has guided me into the paths of righteousness, for his name’s sake.  Yea, even if I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will not be afraid of evils: for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staff, these have comforted me.  Thou hast prepared a table before me… Continue reading

Abandoned

Abandoned

Around the world, there are many of these places in existence, but this particular one is in remote outback Western Australia.  Far out in the Never Never, up a very long dusty dirt track, lies a disused Mine, and close by is the Town, well the Diner is still there, very dusty and no furniture, the sole Petrol Pump is still there, but time has stripped it of all but its core frame, the streets are all tar sealed, and laid out nicely, but most of the houses, businesses, Hotels, Holiday Park and such are all gone, dumped… Continue reading

New Year 2020

New Year

 

Here we are now, just a very few days out from the end of 2019 and the dawning of 2020 and a Brand New Year, one almost like none other ever in the history past.  How we got this far through 2019 from January just past so quickly is just a mystery and a blur, but here we are now, all of us standing at the very door as it were, doorstep in front of us ready to step over the threshold into 2020.  There are some very big plans afoot for this next year… Continue reading

Parakletos; Our Friend

Parakletos: Our Friend

Jesus Promised the Disciples; “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient that I go away: for if I don’t, go away, the Comforter (Greek: Parakletos) will not come unto you, but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” John 16:7 AKJV.

Facing difficult and stressful situations we always need someone alongside us.  Someone who understands us and gives us that needed service, for without that service rendered on our behalf we wouldn’t be able to cope with life.  We need a helper who can console us.  We need a defence… Continue reading

You Reap what You Sow

You Reap what you sow

It is so interesting when you look at people round about you, see various people on the News and the like, that get most upset when things “turn pear shaped,” and it all “Turns to custard,” and then moan; “it’s not my fault, I can’t help it, I did not know, I did not understand it,” and things like this when their world crashes down upon them, and they are not too happy with the consequences that now arrive and “roost in their hair.”  They wanted the activity, the pleasures of life, but do… Continue reading

Live for God

Live for God

Quote; “Remember the words of the inspired apostle, “Ye are not your own. For ye are bought with a price” (1 Corinthians 6:19, 20). You are bought;  even if you perish. The Lord wants His own property. When we have given to God soul, body, and spirit; when we have kept appetite under the control of enlightened conscience, and wrestled against every lust, showing that we consider each organ as God’s property, intended for His service; when all our affections move in harmony with the Lord’s mind, fastening on objects “which are above, where Christ sitteth… Continue reading

Know the Lord

Know the Lord

Quote; “Those who are striving to be overcomers will be pursued by the temptations of the enemy. Satan will tempt them to corrupt the principles which all must maintain who would reach the high standard that God has set before them. Satan rejoices when he can lead souls to follow mistaken ideas, until their names are blotted out of the book of life and recorded among the names of the unjust. We can overcome only in the way that Christ overcame–by wholehearted obedience to every commandment of God. True religion is obedience to all the commandments of… Continue reading

Christians Now

Christians Now

Quote; “Many mean to be Christians, sometime, but do not want to make the start just yet. . . . Not only are you losing much yourselves in giving to the enemy the very best part of your lives, but you are bringing your children up in the neglect of eternal things. They have your example, all on the wrong side. Your neglect is robbing them of the very knowledge which God makes it your duty to give them that they may learn to love, reverence, and obey the requirements of God. 1 John 2:28 “And now, little… Continue reading
