What to do when your house is falling down!? Build more! (Read Nehemiah if you don't believe) So onwards and upards as the First Church Of Carpe Crucis Piha opens its spiritual doors (not yet having physical doors). Hearts open, eyes looking heavenwards, let us sing and celebrate as we explore the glorious landscape of his Kingdom, in Jesus's name. Amen!
The yearly review and expression of Carpe Crucis mission, values and goals looks at the core beliefs and ideologies that underpin the church's direction in an attempt to ensure that it ever aligns with Christ's. There is no thing or place that the leadership of the church would rather be than have Christ as its head.
Marking the end of this short series on biblical and Christian basics, a question that so many look to answer wrongly when they say, "There are many paths to Heaven."
Having undertaken explanation of the identity of God, the reason for our separation and having explored the ways by which we can try and return to Him, a message on the ONLY way by which we can achieve this FULLY.
Continuing the series that looks at Biblical basics and addresses the question of fear in our lives.
"Not a war of killing...but a war of giving new life."
I have stood on the tops of mountains and not come up to the soles of His feet. Our Maker, our Creator. And, wretch that I am, I can only say that, of my fellow man, the professing church, that seething mass of nations, our direction, our union, our expression, is one of Antichrist. No more for me, and I say again, no more. In a solitary communion, a declaration of war against the whole earth, should it choose to fight, to continue in its rebellion against God. Is there a splinter in my eye? You betcha. But take great care for the plank in your own. I am not God. Yet I am here. I am qualified. And I am declaring. What are YOU doing?
Like we have to ask? Yet acknowledging our frailty and wretched condition is essential for a walk of continuing strengthening and refining with our Maker.
A question that should be close to every human heart.
An attempt to answer an impossible question, or to introduce and expound on the concept and person(s) of God.
After the epic, nine month exhortation from the Book of John, and in concordance with the new blessing of an unofficial home, a prayerfully shorter series on Christianity and Biblical basics, all for the glory of God.
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.
