The One And Only

Christ In All

Have you noticed that people are still using Christ name for a cuss word after 2000 years, thats got to be a record names family names get passed down from generation to generation but commonly used language usually have some degree of change like homosexuals are called gays, and Jamaicans are called yardies. I'm just stating an opinion I'm not judging The Spirit of God will do that but a I'm trying to point out the power in The Name of Jesus. I know it's an English version of Yeshua with the power of God to all believes its a precious name it saves, delivers and it can set you free from slavery to sin. Let's start to think more about the way we use our words let them be a blessing not a curse.

Not The God Of The Dead

The God Of Abraham, Isaac And David

Christian's Never die they just sleep. This is why when Christians face persecution they flourish and Christianity spreads. Many gods are followed and worshiped because there is a God that gives everyone the right to choose who they want to serve,  We pick a god that caters to our life style rather than a god who loves us so much that he gave! That's where we have the problem starts, we love to take but have a problem to give. To be Christ like is to live a selfless life. While on the Isle of Lewis I  had the chance to here some amazing testimonies which I will be sharing on my Radio Cardiff Voice of God Show in the near future. Its exciting to hear how God has been moving in different areas of The UK. Remember the days when you could leave you door open! A lady on the island went on holiday and didn't bother to lock her door but as expected everything was as she lef
t it. How I long for these days.
Think on these things?

Scotland Ready For Revival

Duncan Campbell 1949
This was the date of The Isle of Lewis great revival. It is my first time to visit Scotland, if revival is coming soon it would be easier to start here than any other place I have visited in the UK. I am uploading some famous revival sites from The Isle. The house that shook in Arnold the revival church in Barvas. Meeting people from the first generation of this revival its a privilege, not like in Wales where the first and second generation are gone its only the great grandparents who saw the revival. There is a lot of tradition here which is not helpful but on the other hand people are hungry for a fresh revival. I visited a church and it was a bit disappointing because I thought it was too much of a bless me club with little substance. Visiting house meetings with many different church members in unity showing the love of God and bringing his presence in a tangible way makes you realise revival is near on the Isle of Lewis.

The past is the past and will never be repeated the  same again. When looking back on revival you can only use it for an example. Looking forward to the revival to come where the children of God will be walking like Jesus and signs and wonders will follow the believers. This is what I believe the next revival  will bring. The Bible puts it this way  were waiting for The manifestation of The sons of God  Romans 8 v 19

Heaven The Only Way

Jesus Is The Answer
The bible says that Jesus is the only way to God. Many religions teach that there way is right? So what really separates Christianity from other religions. I would say that Christianity is about a relationship. Other religions teach about a far away god or gods of different circumstances. If we look back at history we realize that Christ disciples died in horrific circumstances because they refuse to bend to the worlds way of living by staying true to the fact that Jesus The Messiah has risen from the dead. The truth is the truth and as disciples we need to stand against the world dictating to us telling us how we should live. Pray for God to direct us and strengthen us to live godly lives acceptable and pleasing to Jesus.

The Holy Spirit In Revival

Not By Might Not By Power But By The Spirit Of God

When Jesus left this world after he arose from the dead, He said I am not going away to be with My Father, but I am not going to leave you useless I am going to send to you The Spirit which is on me (Jesus) and through The Holy Spirit  the Apostles would be able to operate the same way Jesus did while He was here on earth.
There are a lot of different denominations teaching different theologies and laws some are still following people doctrines like Calvinism or Arminianism but I follow Christ! He is the one who died for me.
Some people say if you do not worship on a certain day you not going to heaven. Most people have no idea about the Godhead or even their own salvation. If a well known minister falls then many people loose Faith! So who are we really following. If we are standing on the Rock (Jesus) our foundation should be solid but if our salvation is standing on our weekly church services were gonna have problems. There is a doctrine that speaks about there no more sin once your saved but if your not save you have blasphemed The Holy Ghost. The Bible I read said The Holy Spirit when he comes He will convict of Sin! it is part of His Job Description. People know the world is in a state and we as Christians wonder why I believe its because the world has gone in to the church and the church likes it it brings people which brings money. 
 I thank God its not all doom and gloom Arthur Burt speaks about the revival that has no ebb, its on the way its gonna be a time when a healing river will flow praise the Lord Jesus it wont be very long.

A Media Revival

The Former And Latter Rain

Revival many Christians don't like the name some think God will send it when the time is right! Some say it's happening! The Apostle Peter said when quoting Joel there's going to be a Former and Latter Rain referring to a double portion of what had just occurred in the upper room on the day of Pentecost. There is coming a revival where born again believers will walk as Jesus walked. It seems that we are very near this great outpouring for me this is very exciting because I know we are very close to this great move of Gods spirit over our land.
2 Chronicles : 7 v 14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Have The Jews Been Replaced

There Is No Plant Without A Root

If the root is pulled up the plant is removed too. God has always wanted to have people to love him because of who he is. To love someone it must be proved! This is why God is always checking our heart's and motivation. This might be a strange notion to many but it started in the Garden of Eden and it has not stopped yet. Relationship are built on communication, love is built on fellowship, trust and freedom.

Whether or not we are Jew or Gentile if we are not right with God we will be lost but if we walk as Jesus walked people will see the love of God with us and we will be the light to the rest of the world as God created us to be.

In The Land Of Revival

Do It Again Lord 

In 1949-1952 The Isle-of-Lewis was a place of Revival when I talk about revival I'm not talking about a man planned meeting, I'm talking about God visiting a place and the atmosphere being saturated with Gods Holy presence!

Our human mind's will always find it difficult to understand the things of the Spirit this is why most of us are fickle. True disciples walk in The Spirit of God and are sensitive to his Holy Spirit. Lewis is not the place it use to be but here they still have a reverence and fear of God. It was interesting to meet many of the locals who enthusiastically shared their own experiences. Visiting the Christian book shop it was good to meet some one in the bookshop  who knew the history of the Hebrides Revival. Everyone seemed happy and open to receive us.

 Duncan Campbell the revivalist died in the 70's but there are still people around that knew him and even less that remember the revival if you have the opportunity to talk to any of the people that have been in real revivals you will know that imitation cannot replace the real.

We Must Be Guided By The Spirit Of God

Jesus is The Way

The flesh love to do what ever it lust desire it to do! So if it feels good do it? The Bible teaches follow the teachings of Jesus. So what is right in the eyes of God? In St John 17 v 3 Jesus said "Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent" How can this be? In St John 14 through to St John 17 Jesus introduce his Apostles to the Holy Spirit. Letting them know what he will do when He comes. The NASB version states it this way in St John 16 v 8 "And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgement; These words could be stated as Jesus giving His Last Will & Testimony? He gave us keys to how Gods power will be released on the earth, in chosen earthen vessels yielded to The Holy Spirit of God. If we are truly being led by The Spirit of The Living God we should be able to walk in Love, Truth & Unity. 
Many people believe so many different doctrines and teachings that seem contradictory to what the Bible says.
If Mickey Mouse were to opend a church he would proberly get a big following!

What is Truth

The Opposite To A Lie

This statement implies that people lie! The bible states in revelations 21 v 8 liars have their place in the lake of fire. I remember hearing this from a friend and I thought God was a bit harsh? But think about it many people have been killed, beaten up, sent to prison or in many ways had their lives ruined because of lies. Take for example a story I heard of a man who was accused of a violent act against a civil servant, he noticed that all the witnesses against him had stories that contradicted each other, yet he was still found guilty. Feeling that the system was against him because of the colour of his skin he appealed to get some justice as the date was set for the new case he was sure the lies would be exposed but again the lies prevailed. When you hear or experience events like these you can understand why God made a place called Hell. It might not seem right to us in our ignorance but God knows why he created a place of torment. Thank God for Jesus Christ who died for our sin (of unbelief) so we can enter into eternal life by accepting this gift and continuing in his truth.

First The Jew

Branches And Roots

I believe that true Christianity or The Way is different to what we celebrate today as Christianity.  Unity was the key to living a true Christian life. The New Testament is full of examples where the Apostles had to discuss the problems in the church  "Ekklesia" which means assembly there were no denominations just a body of believers who loved Christ.
Jesus give gifts to his body a 5 Fold ministry laid out in Ephesians 4 v 11. These gifts are to help Jesus earthly body (his church) grow into people worthy to be called his name where people see us and want to be like us because they see Jesus Christ in us.
The Jews had an understanding of who God was ( See John 4 v 22), their problem was that they did not understand the plan God had to include The Gentiles into the plan of Salvation.
We must therefore remember that it was the Jews who turned the world upside down with Christianity ( see Acts 17 v 6) The Gentile (Roman Paganism) entered the church by denying the true Jewish roots and to this day the branches are dictating how the church should be.
My prayer is that we all submit to the Holy Spirit the author of the bible and walk in truth and unity.
