Covid Cures in 2 Chronicles

I thought to survey this slightly obscure OT Book in order to trace out principles for advancing the cause of Christ’s kingdom and especially the recovery of the Christian Church, etc. I’ll say more by way of introduction later. Here goes.

Refuting Richard Dawkins – The God Delusion (2006 Bantam Press)

[Specifically, pages 331 – 337 where he seeks to discredit what I wrote! – Steve Layfield]I finally get around to writing a rebuttal of Dawkins diatribe which he penned back in the day. Is he still alive? Or has he finally been confronted with the Truth (Rom 14:12)? I’ll try to be brief and to […]

If The People of My Name (2Chronicles 7v14)

I wrote this short ‘chorus’ recently after joining with several other fellow saints for a conference on ‘Rebuilding the Ruins’ of our Christian heritage. Nearly a hundred Christians over the past few months have joined our ‘Christian Antilockdown’ Telegram Group – Hope, Truth & Light. We are believers from all over the UK who are […]

The Coming King & His Kingdom (Zechariah 9-10)

Rejoice greatly O daughter of ZionShout O daughter of Jerusalem;Behold with justice God’s wondrous salvationBehold the coming of Jesus your king!Lowly the foal of a donkeyBore up the Lord of all time;All horses and bows of the enemyHe’s cut off within both Ephraim and Jerusalem! His peace flows to the kings of all nationsHe shall […]

Cosmic War (Revelation 12 – 14)

See the cosmic warfare ragingFor the souls of everyone:Throughout mankind, the pulse of every mindExtolls the dragon or the Son. In the wilderness mere mannaTruth and righteousness sustain;There abides the loveliest of BridesAnticipating Jesus’ reign. From the foulest water-fountainUndiscerning masses drink;Let earth below absorb its septic flow;So dry bones wisely learn to think. Help us […]

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 […]
