Are British church leaders who “prophesy” today about football stadiums being full of worshiping Christians in the near future – without so much as calling the Church to their knees in repentance – prophesying biblically?
Schaeffer was born twelve years after the death of J. C Ryle who had no choice but to defrock his first-born son from a position of leadership in the Church of England, such was the tentacle reach of liberal theology even into his own family. There is no way that Ryle would remain within the Church of England today. He was too strong for that, too desirous of God. Spirit is always thicker than blood.
What follows are the words of Oswald Chambers. See here for the original post. Conviction of sin is best described in the words: My sins, my sins, my Savior,How sad on Thee they fall. Conviction of sin is one of the most uncommon things that ever happens to a person. It is the beginning ofContinue reading “Repentance”
Hello! Thank you for joining us again on Into the Pray. I’ll be picking Hamlet back up again next week. Suffice to say for our 33rd episode in 1 Corinthians, we now broach one of the most important theological errors of our day:- “progressive” “christian” liberalism. What of head coverings? Are egalitarians correct when they maintainContinue reading “Should Women Lead Churches?”
Full details about our forthcoming project, Calling Yeshua, here. We started working on our latest film/music content six weeks ago with the studio recording of the music component down in Yorkshire, England. Since then, we have experienced significant struggle in completing the project not least from practical interferences from COVID and unseasonal gale-force winds inContinue reading “Calling YESHUA (update)”
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”
How easily has it been that counterfeit love has paraded through our corporate lives? The humdrum of human sentimentality tarted up to appear loving, but betrayed by the shallowness of its inane protestations? The banality of religious chit-chat, the mesmerising allure of false spirituality – who wants these things, really?
The Question “Is this the end of the Church?” I heard a church pastor ask earlier this week. Of course it’s not! Jesus will build His Church and the gates of Sheol will fail to prevail (Matthew 16:18) and the Church will be presented in perfect, wrinkle-less splendour to Jesus at the end of theContinue reading “Is This the End of the Church?”
Happy Christmas Eve, everyone! We thought you’d like to listen to the recent testimony of our parents, Ant & Pam Franks, who have walked with the Lord faithfully for more than 50 years. Lockdown has been a golden opportunity for us all to reassess what we are committed to, how we understand “church” and whetherContinue reading “Mum & Dad’s Landmark Lockdown Testimony”
We have to move beyond our contentment with merely a ‘point of view’. We need the prophetic unction of the speaking Voice that kindly cuts & brings us to our knees. A lost, wandering sheep, straying near to the edge of a 1000ft drop, in a misty storm, wouldn’t be reassured by a vague, difficult-to-hear,Continue reading “Zion, We Have a Problem”
