As the Water Covers the Sea (Hab 2:14)

Do you think that Jesus merely came to save your soul?Do you think He had in mind a part but not the whole?Do you think throughout creationJust a few from every nationConstitute the consummation of His goal?Do you think that Jesus came to save your Sunday praise?Do you not suppose He would redeem our works […]

Song of Deborah – Judges Ch 5

Chorus: When leaders fearlessly lead, long-haired, in IsraelWhen people cheerfully yield themselves in war as wellThere is the Church at its best,Trembling of earth turns to restAnd Jesu, Jehovah, the Lord God of heaven is blessed! (men) Give ear O princes and kings of the nationsThe mountains resound with God’s praiseRainfall like fountains from Edom […]

Psalm 119 – BETH: (version B)

Tune = Blowin’ in the Wind (Bob Dylan) How can a man in the days of his youthThink, talk and walk in his way –Mindful of Christ and the Scriptures of truth,Buoyant with integrity?Yes and what can be hoped for his conscience to sootheWhen evil has drawn him astray?The answer my friend is keeping God’s […]

A Humble Plea to the Sleeping Bride

I recently discovered this piece which I wrote 5 years ago (or so). I find myself reading through Numbers, Deuteronomy & Joshua again as the year 2021 runs its course. Again my thoughts are governed by this framework which I’ve had in place in my thinking now for years. I’d like to supplement my comments […]

Psalm 119 vs 9-16 (‘Beth’)

How Can a Man Cleanse His Way?Tune = Blowin’ in the Wind – Dylan How can a man in the days of his youthThink, talk and walk in his way –Mindful of Christ and the Scriptures of truth,Buoyant with integrity?Yes and what can be hoped for his conscience to sootheWhen guiltiness draws him astray?The answer […]

Coronavirus & Christ

This unseen blight sent down from higher realmTo test the constitution of mankindHas countless feeble-minded overwhelmedEnsnaring them like sheep both lost and blind. For God has demonstrated in His wordThat He is sovereign in this universe;Those sheep their Master’s voice have rarely heard And so remain fast bound beneath God’s curse. Yet other sheep have […]

Lockdownism & The Church

Once again I find myself here expressing appreciation for the analysis & careful research of Dr Joe Boot. A PPT (I crafted) of his article is available here.These are harrowing times & it’s noticeable just how unprepared the western Church has been to confront the ‘pandemic’. Joe Boot puts his finger on the underlying weakness […]

Daniel 4 – Bless the Lord Most High

Bless the Lord most high whose kingdom, by and by, will surely last forever!Earth’s inhabitants, within His hands, are feeble as a feather!His dominion now extendsTo the earth’s most distant endsHoly providence rules every nation;None can stay His mighty powerHe is wielding every hourAccomplishing through judgements our redemption.None may to Him say, “Lord,What is this […]

Thoughts on Kinism

This piece I wrote after meeting with a young man and his wife who have endeared themselves to us. Joshua will presently disagree with my argument here but possesses a very fine spirit. Moreover, he’s young and very courageous! The spirit of ‘political globalism’ much associated with ultra left wing progressivism has no place within […]
