What manner of man is the prophet? Abraham Heschel This is the important question posed at the beginning of Abraham Heschel’s book, The Prophets. We are dedicating the whole of season 4 of Into the Pray to exploring “all the prophets”. You can listen to the preview episode of the season here. In our firstContinue reading “What Manner of Man is the Prophet?”
Hello everyone! Welcome back to the resumption of City of Temples, our teaching series through the book of 1 Corinthians. Last time we concluded chapter 9 and today we will go through the first 11 verses of chapter 10. (*Please excuse the pigeons in today’s recording. We’re experiencing a “heat wave” here in Scotland soContinue reading “How To Understand Idolatry”
“Rediscover BETHEL” is a new video series from Bethel Church in Redding California that’s trying to address some of the common “misconceptions” regarding their theology and practices. Here is the video in question: This is the best I can do to be as gracious as possible while unashamedly seeking to address one primary audience: thoseContinue reading “Rediscover Bethel (a response to Bill Johnson & Dann Farrelly)”
I’m writing today because I am fed up, sick and tired of the casualness of fellow brothers treating issues of infinite importance with blasé – even mocking – attitudes that betray the more radical examine in the Church that is required at this time.
One of the most infuriating aspects of the Church is the profound hypocrisy of some calling the lukewarm landscape to a higher standard one moment and then appealing to them as a bastion of the faith to support our own personal agendas the next!
Part of my answer is that, on Saturday January 4th 2020, during the filming of, The Draft – A Conscription of Conscience, God had given me a prophetic burden to call every church in the UK to close their doors, to repent and to pray. On Friday March 20th, 2020, the exact weekend that Boris Johnson “enlisted” the nation into historic lockdown (and every single church therein), the film was released. As bewildering as it was/still is for me, how can anyone conclude that this was anything other than vindicating, prophetic accuracy? The Lord was gracious enough to give me a prophetic word (cf. Jeremiah 28: 8), I spoke and the unthinkable call to action then happened.
For the last few months we have been reading slowly and prayerfully through the book of 1 Corinthians – we’re calling it, The City of Temples. Just earlier this morning, I dropped the seventeenth episode as we now walk through the door of chapter 7. Why not grab your Bible and listen here? Having laidContinue reading “City of Temples: A Study of 1st Corinthians”
This week on the Into the Pray podcast, we wanted to give some time to an area of conversation that we think will be becoming more and more common as the lockdown of the COVID pandemic slowly lifts.
We are living at an hour in church history where, once again, what the Church says about Jesus is being increasingly scrutinised. To put it another way, we are living at a pivotal moment of importance in which God is forcing the Bride to face squarely in the eye what it is that we sayContinue reading “What We Say About Jesus”
Psalm 15 opens by David asking Yahweh who it would be who would get to live with Him forever. He asks with three (not two) locations in mind:
