EternityMatters... now more than ever. In times like these, what should our focus be? I heard Greg Laurie say this recently...
"You’ve heard it said that some people are “so heavenly minded, they are no earthly good,” but the fact is, those who are the most “heavenly minded” are actually the greatest earthly good. Those who think the most about the next world do the most in this one."
I'm hoping that our hearts will be transformed and will be so passionate and full of faith, and realize that Jesus could come back in a moment that we need to focus on eternal things. I'm all for 'encouraging messages' etc, that's what I'm all about, but I'm hoping that the things happening around us now will help set our hearts on higher purposes and weightier messages and matters.
Now is the time to rise up and realise the season we are in. I'm lighting a signal fire. I know God has called me to light fires in people's hearts, so this is the light and I hope more and more Christians are drawn to it and will catch on that now is the time to do the most important work that God has called us to.
Its time that we are directed to this higher purpose. And I pray we will be able to share the greatest gift we have, our Saviour, with people whose hearts were open and that they meet Jesus and have a revelation of eternity.
Our hearts need to changed and awakened, we can't be pressured into having a passion for His kingdom, our hearts need to be stirred and awakened by a revelation of eternity. We need an awakening... and that's what changes everything...

What should be most important in this life for the Christian?
What should be most important in this life for the Christian? God is paramount. Name above all names. We would all agree on that! After firstly setting that out… What should be the most important in this life for the Christian? Right now, today, what is the most important thing for us? My answer… sharing the gospel, praying fervently for our loved ones, studying the word, knowing God, serving Him, all of these will naturally lead us to desire to purify ourselves and to becoming more like him. Cause and effect. We are passionate about many different things in this life, and many, many of these things are important causes, in and of themselves there may be nothing wrong. However, in this day and age, there is the outrage about this, that and the other, time is short, do these things really matter in the light of eternity? Will they…
Is your allegiance with Him?
Is your allegiance with Him? Good is bad. Right is wrong. Black is white (and you can’t even say that!). Everything is upside down and back to front. Anarchy, lies, and judging each other are rife, and these are not His ways. So many people, and many many Christians, are caught up in movements, and methods (methods that involved wreaking destruction and creating division in today’s society), methods that are far from godly, and on top of that, they just don’t see it. It’s time to reexamine things in our lives in light of what is more pleasing to God than to ourselves and check that our allegiance is with Him. We need to behave how He would want us to behave and think about how He would want us to think. We can’t afford to align with anything or anyone less, whether its a ‘movement’ or a man. Seek…
Thoughts on Evangelism and sharing the Gospel
Thoughts on Evangelism and sharing the Gospel… Sadly there are many times when we use different excuses for not actually having to talk to people about Jesus. Yes, we can share our faith by being relational, and by being a good witness etc, I know because I used to say that. I wasn’t comfortable with ‘straight out’ sharing my faith because it took me out of my comfort zone. I’m still not the best at it, I sometimes struggle to express myself, but now I know that I need to get out of my comfort zone, and I do my best to do that. I used to say it’s not my gift. I am more a ‘such and such’, that’s not my ministry, but now I know its everyone’s ministry and responsibility. I don’t say that with a ‘side order of guilt’ or a ‘helping of condemnation’. I say it…
How do you share the greatest gift you ever received, with people who don’t know its a gift?
How do you share the greatest gift you ever received, with people who don’t know its a gift? Have you ever thought about how to share the gift of salvation with the people in your life? Recently, after talking to a few people, and trying to share my faith with them I had a huge realization. These days, people don’t know what sin is. They don’t know they are sinners. We are all sinners, and we need to be saved and redeemed by the only one that can save us, but this is now a foreign concept to so many. Many people don’t believe in God anymore, and He is not the foundation of their lives, He has effectively been taken out of the picture. God’s laws set out the standard that much of our society has been built on, but as we remove God, we are removing His laws…
Clean your robes and trim your lamps…
Clean your robes and trim your lamps… “When l became a believer, I asked the Lord to always keep my eyes and ears open to anything false. Sometimes l missed it, but He has always shown me eventually. The deception in the “church” is horrifying, but that is a major sign that we are in the very last moments in church history. My prayer life consumes me all day, Jesus is cleaning me up. I’m washing my robes in His Blood, throwing the things overboard that are impure and worldly. Jesus is cleaning up His Bride in urgency. Everything in this world means nothing to me. He has taken it away. I’m not made for this world at all, and it shocks me when “Christians” are happy here. This life is our school. You are saved, its primary school, then high school, then college. You are being transformed by His…
Everything that can be shaken will be shaken…
Everything that can be shaken will be shaken “His voice shook the earth [at Mount Sinai] then, but now He has given a promise, saying, “YET ONCE MORE I WILL SHAKE NOT ONLY THE EARTH, BUT ALSO THE [starry] HEAVEN.” ~HEBREWS 12:26-27~ Commentary: Now this [expression], “Yet once more,” indicates the removal and final transformation of all those things which can be shaken–that is, of that which has been created–so that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.” I’m pretty certain there is a shaking going on. I feel it in my life and I see it the lives of others around me. It’s not pleasant but, in a lot of ways, it is good. The outcomes of this shaking mean more of Him and less of me. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken. Have you heard that saying before? It perfectly describes the world in its…
Do you Know God?
Realize that you are a sinner.
No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. The Bible says, "No one is good—not even one." We cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.
Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.
The Bible tells us that "God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners." This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.
Repent of your sin.
The Bible tells us, "Repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away." The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.
Receive Jesus Christ into your life.
Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in . . ." If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.
"Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank You for saving me. Amen."
