Psalm 18:2

You can read the material here or download a PDF.   Introduction Psalm 18 verse 2, has always intrigued me. We read the Bible but do we understand the words - even the simple and easy to understand words. Does it really sink in? Does it mean anything to you? Yes, Psalm 18:2 is a lovely verse. When I found out the meaning of the words in the Psalm, I found real meaning in praying this verse over and over again. I have found since then, that it has become a real anchor to me and I pray the Holy Spirit will break it open to you in a very real way. Psalm 18:2 NKJV “The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in…

Psalm 91

You can read the material here, or download a PDF. Introduction: Scriptures are powerful when and if you use them. We don't seem to grasp just how powerful they are. Our Bibles lay on the table next our beds and when you eventually pick it up it is full of dust. Why do we only turn to God when we can't carry on any more, because we have to do it ourselves.

The wisdom of God

You can view the material here, or download a PDF. (This is one of my College assignments that I did at the Nehemiah Bible College in Jeffreys Bay, during 2001. I trust that this will bless you also) The book of Corinthians reveals a challenging way of living; God's Ways, God's Thoughts, and the Wisdom of God. Our ways plunged mankind into death and decay. God's ways lead to Life and Peace. God's ways and thoughts are spiritual, our ways and thought s are carnal. Isaiah 55:8-9 ""For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," says the LORD. "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts." NKJV Thank God for His…

I am on a Mission

This Puppet Show’s aim is that you can teach the children about Jesus in a way that they can understand. Children have a short attention span, therefore the 3 stories are split up and they follow each other. The third Puppet Show (To be like Jesus) is where you would have an altar call.
