“Reason is the enemy of faith”
Martin Luther quote


The Lord is saying.   Yes you aren't ready, and you have slacked in that which I've told you to do. But I have made provision. Arise and go forward and do that which you know I'm asking and be prepared. I will anoint you and perfect that which is lacking. Do what you know you must do.


The Unconditional Promise of the Rainbow

We come into more and more of our inheritance as we understand the truth of what Jesus has paid for for us, revealed to us little by little, as we digest it, let it take root, act upon it, walk on it and grow in it


On the morning of 20th February 2010, I had a wonderful heavenly encounter, an amazing experience. The night before I had stood on the promise that I was just as pure, new and forgiven, right then, as the moment I had first entered into the New Covenant and received Jesus into my life, and became born again.

As I sang "I'm drinking at the streams of living water" I could see in my imagination that my little spirit legs were trying to stand as best they could upon this truth. I saw roots going down down into this truth of the righteousness God had provided for me in the death of His Son. until they reached a river. Just like a tree that planted by the waters edge.... its roots drink from the nearby river, and as my roots sucked up the water it was as though the water was made up of tiny rainbows

In the morning the Lord took me to a place in the spirit where I could see things I had never seen in the scriptures before. They were opening up to me at a terrific speed so I could hardly register it all. I was flicking through the bible with my fingers keeping the places until I had to reach for some cd's near the at hand, to hold the places, in Revelations, Hebrews, Jeremiah and Ezekiel, Corinthians.

The rainbow.  

I remembered that it was Noah that the Lord gave the rainbow to. Noah and his family were the first to see the rainbow and it was to signify the covenant, that the Lord would not flood the earth again to destroy it..

Yet God had given a far more important covenant to us in Isaiah 54..... This too was an unconditional promise that would last forever.

Isaiah 54 9 For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.
10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

This word mercy is Racham and means fondle, love, have compassion on and have mercy on

This covenant of Peace that the angels spoke about to the Shepherds at Jesus's birth.. Peace to all men. Reconciliation betweeen God and man can never be broken just as the promise to Noah could not be broken. This covenant of peace was cut by the precious blood of the Lamb. . Even if the mountains crumble into the sea never shall the covenant of God's peace be removed, God's covenant to never be angry with you again stands fast.


What Peace means


This word Shalom (peace) has several meanings. One meaning is "Whole", another could be the actual verb "Pay" usually in command form. other spins that are worth noting, such "it was worth it" or "it was paid for" or ""paid in advance." Hence one can jokingly say that, "when it's paid-for then there is peace," as in PEACE HAS A PRICE.

Isa 53:5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

In its use in Scripture, shalom describes the actions that lead to a state of soundness, or better yet wholeness. So to say, shalom seems not to merely speak of a state of affairs, but describes a process, an activity, a movement towards fullness. Using the King James Version as reference, James Strong lists the rendering of shalom and shalam, among others, as:

  • To make amends.
  • To make good
  • To be (or to make) peace
  • To restore
  • Peace
  • Prosperity
  • Wellness
  • Wholeness
  • Righteousness
  • Life
  • Safe
  • Secure
  • Forgiven

This peace is not just ALL IS WELL, but that all will be WELL. This peace is progressive taking us into more and more wholeness. It is a journey into more and more light of what we already have until we receive all of our inheritance and the way we come into it is by hearing the truth, believing the truth, acting on the truth, walking in the truth

Adventures in India

Hindu lady rubbed the spot from her head.....

Wednesday December 16th 2009


This morning was an amazing experience. We travelled on the hot humid church bus to a meeting which was to be held in an upstairs room. On the way we stopped at a fruit stall that belonged to Christians who had been helped by Joshua's ministry.

You could hardly believe your eyes, people were coming up for prayer, hindu's were amongst them. It was just amazing. People were getting saved and blessed. Anita and I eventually got on the bus for a rest. Some little boys came up that could speak English and spoke to us through the windows. If I remember rightly one was a Christian, the other two, there on the spot got saved and asked Jesus into their lives. I have never seen anything like it. People queueing up to receive Jesus. My experience has been in England...Christians queueing up to try to convert the indifferent.

We took a couple of the newly saved ladies to the meeting with us. One hindu lady rubbed the spot off of her head as we preached.....

Just Joking...

A minister was walking to church one morning when he passed one of his members working in his garden. "Can't you hear those bells calling you to church?" asked the minister.

"Eh, what's that?" said the member.

"Can't you hear those bells calling you to church?"

"I'm afraid you'll have to speak a little louder!" said the member.


"I'm sorry," said the member, "I can't hear you because of those blessed BELLS!"
