Jesus versus Virus

There are two parallel kingdoms that exist right now – the kingdom of this world and the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus said that we should pray for our Father’s kingdom to come and for his will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

God’s will is his word and his word is his will.  God’s word is always relevant and so I believe we will find answers to our questions, solutions to our problems, and the way through the dilemmas that we face in regards to the current crisis that the world is facing.

There is one thing we can know for certain, and that is that our Father in heaven wasn’t caught on the hop or taken by surprise by the events of recent days and so we can also be certain that he has already made provision for these days.

Joel 3: 9 – 10

9 Proclaim this among the nations: “Prepare for war! Wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near, let them come up.
10 Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’”

Prepare for war! It always pays to remember that we are involved in a war with a defeated enemy who is so proud that he cannot acknowledge his defeat.

The war we are engaged in is a war of words.

Has there ever been a global crisis like the present one where people have been assaulted and bombarded with such an endless barrage of words with wall to wall news coverage and minute by minute updates on the number of people testing positive for infection and the statistics regarding how many have died in every country.

We are being attacked on every front by negative and fear-inspiring words, leading to widespread panic that is manifesting in all kinds of craziness and irrational behaviour. Continue reading 'New Wine for New Wineskins April 2020'»

Raised From The Dead

1 Corinthians 15: 14, 17

14 …If Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty…17 And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!

If Christ is not risen, our faith is futile and we are still in our sins. That is a radical statement. Listen to how the Amplified Bible expands on it.

Amplified

14 If Christ has not risen, then our preaching is in vain [it amounts to nothing] and your faith is devoid of truth and is fruitless (without effect, empty, imaginary, and unfounded)….17 And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is mere delusion [futile, fruitless], and you are still in your sins [under the control and penalty of sin]

There is a song that we have been singing for a number of years:

Here I am humbled by your Majesty
Covered by your grace so free
Here I am, knowing I’m a sinful man
Covered by the blood of the Lamb

Now I’ve found the greatest love of all is mine
Since you laid down your life
The greatest sacrifice


It is a great song – but I can’t sing the third and fourth lines of the song the way they are written.  Instead I sing:

Here I am, knowing I’m a righteous man
Delivered by the blood of the Lamb


If my sins are just covered then they are still there.  It is like putting new wallpaper on top of existing wallpaper – the old wallpaper is now covered but it is still there.  If you peel back the new wallpaper you will expose the old one underneath.  

The Old Covenant was based upon the principle of sacrifice as a covering for sin.  But in Hebrews chapters 8 – 10 we see that God has established a brand new covenant with better promises.  The New Covenant promises the removal of our sin.
