I looked at the lectionary before looking at the news this morning. The times are becoming more akin to the days of Noah. This is not a good sign. Because God can do now what he has done in the past. Genesis 6:11-22 11 Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight, and the earth […]

The introduction for the lectionary comes from the dread ilk, and it is accurate. What it misses is that if you don’t play, you don’t bow the knee to the servants of this age, you will be coerced into compliance. Sometimes compromise destroys our ability to seek God. I’ve personally seen this sort of thing […]

Thursday Patristics.

Public worship is important. It not only makes us unite, but it confounds Satan. Even in time of persecution. It is better to be righteous than talk about it. Our lives are our witness. And for Ignatius, his death was part of this. CHAPTER XIII. Take heed, then, often to come together to give thanks […]

Those who love this world and align with this world are enemies to Christ. Being praised by the world is a sign you are not doing things well. In most times, either the people of Christ are persecuted, or the nations of Christ are under attack. “Four out of 5 people persecuted for their faith […]

The University of Western Australia, which promotes itself as in the top 1% of research led universities in the world, (131 in the times ranking, and better than any NZ university) is shutting its printing press because of global strategic vision. Globalists one: locals nil. It is what happens when you import a vice chancellor […]

There will be a time when Israel returns from exile, and many would say that this is the time: that the world will want the Jews to return. Initially they forced their way in, then they have sponosored people in. It may be that the Jewish state takes all the Jews, for the nations will […]

Back to the late imagism.

The Four Quartets are rich, deep, and simply good. To write this simply requires practice, publication, and a depth that comes not from mere experience, but pain. Burnt Norton IV Time and the bell have buried the day, The black cloud carries the sun away. Will the sunflower turn to us, will the clematis Stray […]

I like the old Chick comics. They are now deemed so insensitive that distributing them is considered a hate crime. One cannot talk about hell, or damnation. God is loving, patient and merciful. But he is just. For this life we will have to give account, and that should make us fear. There is a […]

Monday Technical.

I’m writing this on Sunday night because this week is going to involve a lot of travel, appointments, and general moving around. The old laptop I have is flakey. The atheros wifi card does work with Free BSD, and Mate on Ghost is fairly lightweight, but… it’s at least five years old and not very […]

In this time we are to preach God to all. God wants all men, of all nations, to be saved. We are not to define ourselves by our vices or sins, for all have sinned. We are not saved because we are righteous, we are saved because of God’s love and mercy. We are commanded […]
