This is the seventh and final post that I’m going to do on the book of Hosea. But seventh in the series though it may be, I want to treat it as though it is the first and the last.

Layered over the timeless theology of this minor Prophet’s book, and this series, has been a certain amount of poetic thought. I hope it’s been clear; I hope it’s been helpful.

But, in just a few paragraphs, what is the message of Hosea? (more…)

Have you ever imagined what the world looked, smelt and sounded like during the time of Moses? Have you imagined what it must have been like to witness the plagues that God sent on the land of Egypt…the splitting of the Red Sea, the colossal pillars of fire and cloud and the armies of locusts so vast that anything similar was never seen before or since?

The Father Never Lies


No Comments

The world reminds you every day that

“The camera never lies”

But The Father reminds you every day that

“The Father never lies”

I’m reminded that there is a father of lies but assured that the Father doesn’t ever lie.

I saw a man today crippled by the fear of what the camera said, by the bad news message preached from the camera of lies echoed again and again by the media malaise of our day.

I’m reminded that there is a father of lies but assured that the Father doesn’t ever lie.

We may have grey and we may have bumps; we may have wrinkles and we may have spots.

I’m reminded that there is a father of lies but assured that the Father doesn’t ever lie.

The Father looks at the things that man can not observe, that the father of lies understands not, that the camera can never see.

The King is enthralled with your beauty

Psalm 45:11

I’m reminded that there is a father of lies but assured that the Father doesn’t ever lie.

The father of lies means for us to live bent over, doubled up, hounded by crippling species of fear.

I’m reminded that there is a father of lies but assured that the Father doesn’t ever lie.

The Father has a picture of you as on His fridge in all your unspeakable beauty, in all your unseen worth.

He’d like you to see His picture.

I’m reminded that there is a father of lies but assured that the Father doesn’t ever lie.
