The Sad Consequences Of Being Linked To Wicked Men

This morning my daily reading included the last chapter of 1st Kings, chapter 22. It features the sad departure of good King Jehoshaphat from the truth of God when he entered into a political allegiance with the evil King Ahab, a man notorious for his wickedness.

Of Ahab we read: “And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him. And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him. And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria. And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him,” 1 Kings 16:30-33. Read more


Perfumes And Deodorants . . . . They Testify Of Our Sinfulness!

“For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me. My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness,” Psalm 38:4-5.

It is a quite remarkable thing that King David, despite all his military engagements, never was wounded. At least there is no record in Scripture of him every suffering any injuries in battle. The nearest he came to a wounding was his near fatal encounter in his latter years with one of the offspring of Goliath.

“Moreover the Philistines had yet war again with Israel; and David went down, and his servants with him, and fought against the Philistines: and David waxed faint. And Ishbibenob, which was of the sons of the giant, the weight of whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of brass in weight, he being girded with a new sword, thought to have slain David. But Abishai the son of Zeruiah succoured him, and smote the Philistine, and killed him. Then the men of David sware unto him, saying, Thou shalt go no more out with us to battle, that thou quench not the light of Israel,” 2 Samuel 21:15-17.

But apart from this incident I believe it correct to say that the Lord kept David safe on the battlefield. Read more


Cowardly compromise

Below is a letter I sent off to the Belfast Newsletter on October 12th in response to its article on the question of a complete ‘lock down’ in Northern Ireland.

The article highlights the misgivings of DUP MP, Sir Jeffrey Donaldson and is reproduced below.

Sadly, it appears he has not the courage to confront the reason why the whole country may well suffer a lock down rather than those areas, due to their defiance of the social distancing rules, have seen an increase in the numbers of infections.

Sir,

Why does not some Unionist politician highlight why the Stormont Executive is not considering a ‘local lockdown’ where the infection rate is highest?

Sir Jeffrey Donaldson dances around the topic but fails to come right out and denounce the compromise of which his Party leader is guilty! Read more


Playing the two ends against the middle

If the thinking of the British government of the WW 2 era was as muddled and confused as is today’s political leadership, then we today would likely still be living under Nazi rule!

There is a measure of ‘befuddlement’ in political life today that is unsurpassed by anything history can produce!

There is a simple reason for this! Despite the presence of Oxford and Cambridge graduates galore within parliament and doubtless brains aplenty, there is hardly an ounce of gumption between them all.

WHY? The answer is simple. When it comes to that wisdom whereby we walk in a path of peace and prosperity, mankind is utterly lacking!

Those who believe and embrace the Bible will find the ‘path of life’ for it is revealed there for all to enjoy who will trust the Author of it – the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore,” Psalm 16:11. Read more
