First Commandment

By |2023-01-24T17:12:24+11:0024th January, 2023|Categories: Nuggets|0 Comments

Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, “Which is the first commandment of all?”  Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And [...]

Ruth Ch 4

Chapter 4 Here it is!  The good news of a kinsman-redeemer!  This is the only passage in Scripture that gives details of this pivotal aspect of our belief.  The concept is discussed in Leviticus Chapter 25 verses 25-28 where Moses instructs the people to ensure that land promised to a [...]

Ruth Ch 3

Chapter 3 Well, what do we make of the opening 4 verses of this chapter?  Here Naomi is effectively suggesting that Ruth prostitute herself.  Are you prepared to offer-up your self-righteous virtue for your redemption?  And one must always listen to their mother-in-law (at least with one ear), if you [...]

Chapter 2 Verses 1-2, reminds us that it is good to have relatives in places of influence and prosperity.  It also shows that to survive, and even to prosper, we need to have a plan.  And God has the perfect plan for us (Jerimiah 29:11).  But we need to stand [...]

Back to Naomi.  Do you feel the anguish of this woman?  The sudden loss of not only familiar friends, family, home and country, but her loving and caring husband; not one, but two sons in their prime. There is no welfare system, no protector or supplier. Where, and to [...]

There are 2 major points to learn from the first chapter of Ruth: What happens when you lay aside God’s promises, and How He brings you back into those promises. Judges 21:25, “In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own [...]

Let's look at the Book of Ruth. If you were left on a deserted island and this was all you had, you could be saved. It is the quintessential encapsulation of the Gospel.  Just add the Gospel of John and presto!, you have all the good news. I've borrowed [...]

Xenocentricity Xeno = different, foreign.  Centricity = central, core Humanity is quintessentially xenocentric.  We are of a different essence from the rest of nature.  Nature, whether animal, vegetable or mineral, is part of the rest of the spiritless creation.  Humanity is of the likeness of Spirit God (Genesis 1:26).  Being [...]

Unbelief Mark 9:17-24, “Out of the crowd, one man answered Him, “Teacher, I brought my son to You. He has a spirit that makes him unable to speak. Wherever it seizes him, it throws him down, and he foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and becomes rigid. So [...]

Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) Five days later, Israel celebrated its most joyous appointed time of the year with the fall harvest (2nd and final harvest of the year), also known as the appointed time or the Feast of Tabernacles (Leviticus 23:33-36,40,42-43 and Numbers 29:12-40), Feast of Booths (Sukkot), or [...]

In Leviticus 23:1-2, the Lord told Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and tell them: These are My appointed times, the times of the Lord that you will proclaim as sacred assemblies.   The name ‘appointed times’ is self explanatory. These are times appointed by the Lord for a specific purpose. [...]

From Julie Winters: “God does not need  to be told  he is Holy or Worthy.  People cringe when I say this on the account it seems blasphemous and definitely anti-worship.  But think about it?  If you have to tell someone  over and over again they are holy and worthy [...]

Gen 43:1-2 Now the famine was severe in the land. And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the grain which they had brought from Egypt, that their father said to them, “Go back, buy us a little food.” Famine! Does Jacob go out and re-dig the [...]

Gen 26:12-33 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him.  The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous;  for he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of [...]

A common theme in modern spirit-filled congregations is ‘Streams of Living Water’, but before you have a stream, first you need the water! On the West Coast of Tasmania they get plenty of water, it just falls from the sky - continuously (so it seems at times). South Australia [...]

Faith, Trust, Belief

By |2022-10-28T13:42:59+11:0028th October, 2022|Categories: Nuggets|0 Comments

Believe: Hebrews 11:6  We must first believe that “God is”, for if not then we have cheated ourselves of ALL that is our inheritance (Ps 14:1).  Thus we believe there is a god.  From there it is imperative to believe He (or It) has any interaction with us.  Does [...]

Psalm 78:40-41, “How often they provoked Him in the wilderness, And grieved Him in the desert! Yes, again and again they tempted God, And limited the Holy One of Israel.”   Here we see that although ‘all powerful’, sufficient to rescue an entire nation from slavery and destroy their [...]

Is God omnipotent?  We answer, “Duh! Of course He is all powerful!”, but does He always exercise His ‘all powerfulness’? Luke 24:13-35, “Now behold, two of them were travelling that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was seven miles from Jerusalem. And they talked together of all [...]

The significance of the tallit is always in the tassels, which in Hebrew are called the Tzitzit.  They are placed in the four corners of the shawl.  According to Numbers 15 there should be a blue thread in the tassel.  Unfortunately, the blue dye was made from a particular [...]
