With a frank admission of feeling out of his depth, our preacher presses on with heartfelt prayer to the Holy Spirit to be his guide and comfort. The epic nature of Abraham's journey reflects God's delight at being on the road Himself, jouneying with the one they first called, 'the Friend of God.'
I wore a T shirt under my shirt that read, "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." This, of course, essentially is untrue. Any journey begins with a plan and an intention. I have felt moved to begin a journey through the Bible from the Fall to the Coming of Christ and beyond, to prayerfully expose the crimson thread that runs through all ages, God's plan for salvation. This, then is the first step, from Eden to Babel. I am not particularly well qualified to preach on this, but sometimes that is also part of the journey. May the Lord, the good Lord, lead and guide through His Holy Spirit, in Jesus's mighty name. Amen.
The simple gospel. A jewel set in a crown of God's glory.
From the still, small voice that woke Samuel and called out to Elijah, to the burning bush and pillars of fire and cloud, God is communicating with each of us through prayer and miracles. Just how can we seek His face?
This preacher has found himself tramping round in Psalm 19 for a number of weeks, and now, by the grace of God, preaches a simple exegesis on the same, in Jesus's name.
Where an apostrophe can mean so much. A prayerful and forthright look at a woman's role in the church. It is a foundational belief of the Church of Carpe Crucis that women will have the largest part to play in the Last Days. Youtube automatically chose the frame for the video, I did not photo process what seems to be a cross in the sky on the image.
Well,in setting up a church it would impolite not to introduce the preacher. Not that he feels comfortable (as he will explain) and not that he wants recognition (as he will explain) but that he wants to give people a better idea of who they are listening to, so that they can make a better decision as to whether he is worth listening to or not. We want Christ to abound in all things, and His word to propagate through our ministers for the Father's glory and the coming of His Kingdom on earth, all through the power and authority of the Holy Spirit. Here's the preacher, you decide.
Again, do watch in conjunction with the video blog entries on Word For The World .net. May the Lord of Hosts keep you and bless you, in Jesus's name.
After a week of intercessory prayer and the glorious revelation of a clear sky over Auckland (see our sister site awordfortheworld.net for the first two parts of the blog series, 'A Prayer For Auckland') a preparatory prayer for the continued preaching on the foundation of Carpe Crucis as a church. Luke 21 v36 "Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."
Where I am going as a church, with a view on the current world situation. All glory to God, all praise, honour and worship to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. If He is for us, what can stand against?
Michael Robert Jackson was baptised in the name of Jesus in 2012, after a forty year walk in the wilderness, ten years after he first came to Christ. He is the least of God's children.
