I was thinking it may be of interest to be able to send out any new writings to those who enjoy thinking outside the box. What do you think?

Martha, Martha

Martha was angry. Mary was not helping her prepare the meal. She marched into the meeting and tells Jesus, "Lord, make Mary help me!"

I've always had difficulty finding the message in this event. Consider this thought as I paraphrase the text...

The Endtimes Apostasy

We have in the last 60 or so years watched and perhaps taken part in the corporatization of a local body of believers. Could this move represent the apostasy written about by Paul when speaking of the last days?


The people of Israel were often referred to as sheep and this metonomy is also applied to those who are followers of Yeshua.

It is not a complement.

As in the Days of Noah

I'm sure there are many similarities between the the days of Noah and the end times, but I's like to consider just one here—the issue of the tainted DNA.

We today face an intrusion into not only our private affairs but also into the flesh, bones and blood of our existence.

Governments have given themselves authority, using threat, duress, and intimidation, to force...

The Biblical Root to Disease

How does disease become rampant? To be frank, much of what we face is the result of government experimentation for bioweapons. Another part comes from our disregard for God's instruction in the Bible. The latter is the focus of this article...

Submission to God’s Delegated Authorities

Both these stories depict the act and consequences of questioning and/or acting rebellious toward God’s selected leader.

These accounts, as with all those in the Bible, act as principles which we can and should use to govern our behaviour or at least to know what to expect should we choose not to...

The Problem of Porn

We find in the metaphorical living rooms of most men the elephant that no one wants to talk about, choosing instead to walk around it, ignoring the obstacle to relationship and fellowship that it is. This obstacle is porn or pornography...

Pride is Self-centredness

Pride then is self-centredness, selfishness, self-focus, self-worship, the "feeling that you are more important or better than other people."

"...whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant" (Mat 20:26 NAU)

Living the Life God Designed

It is possible that the "image" and "likeness" is a reference to the unique complex nature of mankind not found in God's other created life forms. That unique nature being spirit, mind, and flesh--distinct, co-existent, and unified--before falling into disobedience. 

No Greater Burden

I have enjoyed, and recommend the experince of participating in the various activities such as Passover, the Feast of Trumpets, etc. from time to time, as a means of experiencing the culture of another people group. This has also been a means of connecting to the Hebraic roots of Christianity and to Yeshua (Jesus), who was himself of the tribe of Judah.

However those who insist that all Christians must participate in these activities cause me a great deal of concern...
