Vanessa Bling - Have Mercy On Me Lord

10 February 2018

Vanessa Bling is best known these days as one of many singers that Dancehall artist Vybz Kartel introduced to the global music scene as Gaza Slim. What many people may not know is that she started in the church and has a strong church background. 

I came across this gospel song of hers called Have Mercy on Me Lord.  She produced the song herself. Which I think is worth a listen. Although she may offer both Reggae and Gospel songs just pray for her. She has not forgotten God and I do not believe he has forgotten her.

New Testament Kimyal Translation

2 January 2018

The Kimyal tribe reside in West Papua, Indonesia. They have had a part of the New Testament translated but have longed for a full translation to help them understand the Word better in their own language.

The community waited 47 years for this. You can see the joy and happiness on their faces as they receive the New Testament.

One of the many critiques of the Bible is that it has been translated too much. People often fail to realise that people understand better in their own native tongue languages. As long as the translation says what the original texts says and conveys the same message I see no issue. When the Holy Spirit descended on the Disciples they spoke in tongues and those tongues were languages that the bystanders spoke natively and they understood what was being said.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

24 December 2017

Before the foundations of the world were complete, God knew that man would fail. However, He chose to still create us. He still wanted a relationship with us. 

Jesus was sent down from heaven to earth to save us from our sins and reunite us back to the Father.  It was by His Grace that we were saved. Jesus became the ultimate sacrifice for all of humanity.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Forgive Us of Our Sins

21 December 2017

Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. 
(Matthew 6:9-13 KJV)

The Ancient City of Corinth Preserved

18 December 2017

A recent discovery was made of the ancient city Corinth by archaeologists. So much has been preserved by the salt water of the ruins that have laid undersea for many years. Much of the structure of this Biblical city date back to 1AD.

The letters to the church of Corinth are found in 1st and 2nd Corinthians.They are some of the most read New Testament Bible books today. Apostle Paul being made aware of certain practices amongst the new believers writes to them to steer them in the right direction.

In the 1st Corinthian book, Paul addresses issues to do with sin, leadership, and marriage amongst several other concerns that the church at Corinth had questions regarding. 2nd Corinthians re-affirms what he says as some were still not sure about his authority on such matters. It is in Corinthians that he boasts about the levels of his faith.
