• Jonah - Suffering & Redemption!

    1 April, 2019

    When pounded by hardship, both petulance and rage thrust their fists skywards to the good Lord. (Jonah would set the measure of this response in chapter 4 of his too brief autobiography.) Yet - the wise will gaze long to heaven to hear God's words, and not just be heard by Him. The choice is…...[read more]

  • When Impotence Meets Omnipotence

    13 September, 2018

    Jonah fled the Lord, and of course failed. He met a massive storm and was swallowed by a great fish. Jonah got life wrong. He rejected God's call upon him, and disliked Nineveh more than he loved his own life. Three unforgettable days as history's first submariner left him as refuse from a…...[read more]

  • The Elijah Enigma

    10 April, 2016

    If ever there is an archetypal prophet, an enigma to the common mind, a man given to a roller-coaster faith - it must be Elijah. He erupts in the Scriptures from mountainous Gilead only briefly. Elijah then disappears with an equal pace. This man of pensive passion still scrambles for my attention…...[read more]

  • Floating a new Future

    6 May, 2014

    Soul Snack 85/14 ... 370 days of animal laden stench, cabin fever and stale food took Noah to a new place, a mountain-top he had never climbed - Mt Ararat. I wonder how painful the loss of all friends were, or how difficult the extended time of isolation really felt for Noah and his family? Have…...[read more]

  • Guidance Afloat

    5 May, 2014

    Soul Snack 84/14 ... Floating on holy fear alone, Noah refused to give-up. An ancient sun emptied Noah's pores, while the jeers and jibes dried his spirit. Tediously Noah hammered away at the ark. Resolutely he knew God's commission, so Noah would too commission the ark. Already he learned…...[read more]

  • The Scandal of 'NOAH'

    10 April, 2014

    It is now becoming far less rare for SoulSupply to weigh in on the world Christians are exposed to. (You may recall last year's series - 'The Sexual Avenger'.) Two re-current trends this day that scare me: a permeation into Christianity of inclusivisim and the resurgence of…...[read more]
