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!

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 […]

The Song of Moses (Exodus 15)

I’ll sing to Jehovah my sovereign ProviderWhose triumph and power He gloriouslyDisplayed when He cast both the horse and its riderIn violent judgement deep under the sea.The Lord is my strength and my songAlone He is God, I will praise Him!Salvation to me He’s becomeMay families united exalt Him!

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’.
