Connecting the dots

The expression, ‘Connecting the dots’ has become quite popular in South Africa as a way of suggesting areas of corruption without actually being explicit. However, in this article, I want to use the expression very explicitly to connect the dots between the Old and New Testaments. Jesus is of course the dot-connector in chief, but

Easter Saturday

If Friday represents the death of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and Sunday represents His glorious resurrection, then what does Easter Saturday represent? I dislike using the term ‘Easter’ because it derives from Ishtar the pagan demon Queen of Heaven. However, almost all societies and churches call it by this name, so for the sake

Judgement Day

The prospect of a Final Judgement should not threaten any true Christian, for it is the final earthly act in God’s redemptive plan for all who believe.

What do Muhammad and Jesus have in common?

What do Mohammad and Jesus have in common? Absolutely nothing. In the religion of Islam, Jesus is honoured as a messenger of Allah but Muhammad is revered as his last and greatest messenger. Biblical Christianity, on the other hand, gives no credence to either the god of Islam or Muhammad. Islam only emerged onto

Two Beastly for words

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and perhaps that is one of the reasons why John linked the book of Revelation to the star sign pictures in the heavens. For instance, look at this depiction of the constellations of Aries, Taurus, Cetus, and Orion; what a story it tells.

A Word of Witness

This is a long post, but one which I feel compelled to write. I hope you will read it through to the end and then comment freely to add your ‘word of witness’. There is a foul wind blowing across the nations of the world, and its malignant force is most obvious in the
