TruthTalks: The Centrality of Jesus

More and more scholars are writing and teaching on the centrality of Jesus and I am convinced that this is a subject currently on God’s heart. Part of this focus is the belief that Jesus is the full, and not just the fullest, presentation of God’s nature and character. This TruthTalk combines my two

Jesus, the Full Representation of God

I realise that an article titled ‘Jesus, the full representation of God’ is signalling a theological discussion that may not appeal to everyone. For this reason, and because it is a complex subject, I am going to start with a concise overview instead of ending with one. I am a passionate advocate of Christocentricity

Articles for Easter

Three of the articles I wrote for Joy! Magazine between 2008 and 2014 are worth repeating as a build up to the Passover season of 2019. The first article concerns Passover, or what many now call Good Friday, and links it to the Lords Table we regularly celebrate in church. The second covers territory

TruthTalks: Anointed Leadership – The Church Jesus would Attend Series

posted in: Home Bulletin, Podcast, TruthTalks | 0

When Christians exercise the apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic, pastoral, and teaching roles under the anointing and guidance of the Holy Spirit, then we are likely to encounter Jesus.

TruthTalks: What Church would Jesus attend?

What Kind of Church would Jesus Attend?

My daughter suggested I write about the kind of church Jesus would attend. I have been thinking about it and I think it is something all Christians, and especially church leaders, need to consider. Attend is a rather formal word that evokes thoughts of annual general meetings and other formal business-like occasions, but it is

TruthTalks (Sermons): Connecting the dots

People who doubt the authenticity of the Old Testament or the divinity of Jesus should listen to this message. The Lord Jesus connects the dots between His life and key Old Testament events. By doing this He is in effect saying, “Yes, it is true, and I AM the one who did it!”

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

Standing together around Jesus

  If we try to walk alone against a hurricane, it will blow us away. We stand a better chance of keeping our footing if we hold hands with others. However, even the strongest wind will not budge us if we join together around Jesus. I grew up in the windy city of
