Devotional thoughts for most days, for those who depend on the grace and mercy of God in Jesus Christ. These thoughts are Bible based and inspired by my Reformed tradition.

The Messianic Kingdom is in the Old Testament depicted in terms of abundant food and feasting for all. Ezekiel said, “They shall be secure on their soil … when I break the bars of their yoke, and save them from the hands of those who enslaved them … I will provide for them a splendid vegetation so that they shall no more be consumed with hunger in the land …” (Ezekiel 34:27-29).

God was at work in the first Church in Jerusalem.   The Lord saved them by grace, through faith, and one of the outcomes was that they were filled with awe. 
Acts 2:43:   Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles.

Israel experienced the power of God's Word, a Word spoken by a prophet of God.  That Word could not be removed from Israel's life. It was more powerful than the words of the king and certainly much more powerful than the prayers of the priests of the false god, Baal.

A transforming faith that saves, provides wisdom!
These musings are about a checklist to see if I am a fool, or wise.

The Holy Trinity is not an optional "extra" to God. It is the nature of God as revealed to us in Scripture.  The biblical truth about the Trinity has become a pressing issue for contemporary Christians, simply because we are losing the biblical account of God in the way we speak and we are therefore at risk to ignore this ancient teaching without controversy or debate.

Trying to build a great Church without praying for and relying on the work of the Holy Spirit is a pointless and wearisome exercise. 
But nothing can be more exciting and uplifting, so alive and so full of power as a Church community experiencing the anointing of the Spirit, with Spirit filled, passionate members.

The Bible records only 10 separate resurrection narratives.  It is rare, unusual, marvelous, exciting, wonderful events.
