What biblical lessons did Zach Bauer learn from smallholding?

This show was really fascinating, and held my attention more than many do! The information here is amazing, tying together the biblical with the practical, and giving insight into what God really meant and intended in His word. Until you have worked with animals, it’s clear you are missing out on the real understanding of some of God’s word. His explanations will give you insight and a new understanding of the simple practicalities of what God is telling you and showing you in the bible.

God Bless you

Psalm 64 – Oppressed by the Wicked but Rejoicing in the Lord

This psalm has particular relevance for me at this time in my life. We all have around us unbelievers who are used by satan to cause us difficulties. Let us always remember to rejoice in the LORD, and to be aware of those around us and the deeper intentions of sweet-seeming unbelievers! Seek the LORD that He will guide you safely!

1 Hear my voice, O God, in my meditation;
Preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked,
From the rebellion of the workers of iniquity,
3 Who sharpen their tongue like a sword,
And bend their bows to shoot their arrows—bitter words,
4 That they may shoot in secret at the blameless;
Suddenly they shoot at him and do not fear.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter;
They talk of laying snares secretly;
They say, “Who will see them?”
6 They devise iniquities:
“We have perfected a shrewd scheme.”
Both the inward thought and the heart of man are deep.
7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow;
Suddenly they shall be wounded.
8 So He will make them stumble over their own tongue;
All who see them shall flee away.
9 All men shall fear,
And shall declare the work of God;
For they shall wisely consider His doing.
10 The righteous shall be glad in the Lord, and trust in Him.
And all the upright in heart shall glory. (NKJV)

May God Bless you!

Why do I (try to) keep the Law of Moses?

I just wanted to share these – perhaps you’ve been asked this before, and you might find these helpful as answers which are also true for you. Often when we’re asked it’s in quite an aggressive and judgemental way. It pays to have a ready answer, perhaps? So here are mine:

Because I love Him

Because my life is His

Because Jesus did

Because the bible tells me to!

Because I want to be obedient

Because it’s easy and (mostly) quite fun

Because it prepares me and puts oil in my lamp

Because I don’t want to partake in paganism

Of course there is always that other question (and it’s usually to do with the cloth of two threads, which most modern Christians think is harder to deal with than the labyrinthine workings of the Inland Revenue!). So when asked what you do about the cloth of two threads, there is one very simple answer:

I rely on Grace for what I cannot do

You’ve probably had these conversations with people before, so please would you share your reasons and answers in the comments? Thank you!

God Bless you

It’s been a week

Yes, quite a week, if you know what I mean! Well, I’ve been without my computer for a week, due to some obscure scheme of the devil’s I’m sure. I mean my poor IT guy – he’s the best – but we could not work out why it was misbehaving. It’s sorted now, and it’s always heartening to finally log back in and see that life on the blog continued as always, with views from all over the world. Thank you to those of you who have come past the last week and read something, and maybe shared one of the bees in my bonnet.

I was left all week, not without internet completely, but having to use Wifi and my little tablet computer. On that little tablet computer there is a tiny memory card with many wonderful videos on it. I’m going to share two here, which although I have watched them many times before, I needed to hear again! You, perhaps, do too. Perhaps you’ve never heard of Otto Koning, but even if you have, this weekend, take time to listen to him again, and enjoy the humour, and the insights that come from his wonderful testimonies.

 

Shabbat shalom!

God Bless you

Happy New Year!

I am so excited about 2017 – what a year 2016 was, and what God did for me in that time! With that in mind, I feel so buoyed up about 2017! I hope that 2017 is good for you, and that your needs are met, and your relationship with God is closer than ever by the end of it!

I’m just including a few of the best memes I’ve seen and grabbed off Twitter this last few months. I hope they make you think (Selah!) and inspire you.

Wake up, Church!

I have written before about the sheep – it is good to be a sheep. However you do need to know Yeshua’s voice, and distinguish what He teaches from the churchianity we have going on today. Never has that been more pertinent to me than when a dear friend requested I look into the Immanuel Prayer process.

I decided to start by watching the video she sent and then looked at some of the practical sessions that people had recorded and put online. This process (and I’m going to provide no links, I do not want to encourage you to go look at it, and if you want to Google is your friend) is guided meditation.

When two people say they see Jesus in different places, wearing different clothes – one says a white robe with a blue sash, and the other says he’s wearing jeans and a tan shirt, I have to say that something is wrong, and that this is an open door to the works of the devil. Why do I say that?

Ok *steps onto the soapbox* because they are not teaching the Law! They are using Eastern mysticism and meditation techniques to validate themselves through experiences, not scripture. Yeshua embodies everything we need to know about the law, how to live, how to love, how to eat, how to treat others, how to pray, how to heal. It’s all in the book!

In fact this came yesterday, at a time when I was seeking – seeking for answers from God for my own situation, church-wise. I just prayed and asked to be shown what God really wanted me to do. The answer came yesterday evening, when this teaching appeared in from of me (it’s OK, it was on the PC, I was surfing the net!).

You need to watch this, and you need to share it. You need to come to a point of acceptance that if your church is disregarding the Law, then it cannot help you to stop sinning, because you don’t even know what sin is.

For other articles on the law, click the following links:

Are we under the Law, or under Grace?

If your church isn’t teaching the Law of Moses, you don’t know what sin is!

Joel Osteen is NOT a hypocrite!

Does your church have regard for the law? If not, it is time to ‘come out of her, my people.’

God Bless you
