Promises, promises…

I wonder how many times you have made a promise?
How many times you’ve kept a promise?
How many times you’ve broken a promise?

To make a promise is to make a commitment to either do something, or not do something. Promises are made at certain points in our lives, some being more important than others. As children we maybe promised our parents to keep our room tidy, or to help out around the house. As adults we maybe have made more serious promises in some of our relationship i.e. marriage or business. People will sometimes judge our character and integrity based on whether or not we keep our promises. In my experience promises are easier broken than kept, both promises I’ve made, and sometimes promises people have made to me. Sometimes we maybe need to think before we speak when it comes to making promises, especially when it involves making promises to our children that deep-down we know we may have trouble keeping!

Promises of God..


Have you have ever stopped to think how many promises are in the bible? Apparently there are over 3000! That’s over 3000 promises God has for you and I. God is the God who does not break promises – the bible says ‘for all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto” (2 Cor 1: 20) There are obviously many great characters in the bible God made promises to:  Noah, Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Daniel – the list is endless. The fulfilment of the promises made to these folks didn’t happen overnight though. For some it took years before they saw the promises of God to them fulfilled.

How about you? Has God promised you something and you’re waiting for it to come to pass? Maybe you’re struggling because although God has promised something, it seems like God has now gone silent and there seems no fulfilment of that promise in sight. Don’t be discouraged – if God has promised you good things he will fulfil his promise! Stand firm, and stand strong, and be patient!  The bible says that God will ‘never leave you, nor forsake you’ (Heb 13:5) I believe that’s one of the greatest promises God makes to us!

How long have you got?

Everybody asks questions: Why, what, where, when, how, who?IMG_0799
Why did it happen?
What caused it to happen?
Where will it all end?
When will it get better?
Will it get better?
How can we sort this mess out?
Who can help us?
Who can save us?

I have a question for you – HOW LONG HAVE YOU GOT?-How long have you got left on this earth?

As we came to the end of last year I heard So many people say – “don’t know where this year has gone – it’s gone so fast”

How many more birthdays or anniversaries will you celebrate? The answer is no one knows!

The Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthian church and said ‘Time is short’ (1 Cor 7:29)

All around us people loose their lives, seemingly unexpectedly and in untimely fashion. Just a few days ago 162 people boarded a flight to Singapore. The people on board had just celebrated Christmas. Maybe travelling home, travelling to see loved ones for the New Year but within an hour from take off the plane had disappeared from the radar. We now know a tragic accident happened – the 162 seem to have lost their lives. When they boarded flight they were talking, joking, eating, drinking, yet sadly they didn’t reach their destination.

The same day a ferry caught fire – several people on the ferry lost their lives – others were rescued. They waited and looked for the rescues boats and helicopter to lift them to safety. There was only one way to be saved from the flames on the ferry – to be lifted off, either onto a boat or a helicopter.

People on the ferry were looking for help, they were looking for a saviour. May that’s what you’re looking for? You are tired of living with guilt and shame, tired of being lonely, troubled, insecure. Well there is good news! God can give you hope! There is only one Saviour and His name is JESUS! The bible says “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”

You may not see your need of being rescued, – but the bible says ‘All have sinned and come short of the glory of God” “all we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned to our own way..” “there is none righteous no not one”

None of us have lived as God intended – our sin, our selfishness, our rebellion and rejection of God in our lives puts us in a perilous position – separation from God for eternity: “ For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom 6:23) Some people try to save themselves through religion and doing good deeds. We cannot save ourselves – “ For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Eph 2:8-9)

People prepare for journeys in this life – but not for eternity. The bible says “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement” (Heb 9:11) and that “every one of us shall give an account of himself to God”

At the start of this new year – do you know where you are going? You may not know how long you have left of this earthly life but you can be sure of heaven as a destination if you are willing to accept Christ into your life.That’s the good news of the gospel – you can enter this coming New Year with a transformed life, a life transformed by Jesus Christ.

The bible promises “whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved”
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: Old things have passed away, behold all things become new” At Christmas we exchanged gifts – On the cross Jesus exchanged his life to take the punishment you and I deserve – he offers us forgiveness and eternal life – peace hope, joy!

“ For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotton Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John3:16)

How do we receive this gift?

By doing three things:

1) Repent of your sin – “ repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins maybe blotted out” That means changing the direction of our lives and going God’s way instead of our own.

2) Believe – we must believe in Jesus Christ as our RISEN Saviour “I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, shall live” (John 11:25)

3) Confess – Jesus Christ as Lord – “ if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead you shall be saved”

There is something like a too late! The bible says “NOW is the accepted time; behold now is the day of salvation” (2 Cor 6:2)

How long have you got? I don’t know – you don’t know. Don’t enter this new year the same – why not pray this prayer now and trust Jesus to change your life:

Lord Jesus Christ, I come to you because I am a sinner, I am sorry for my sin,I turn from my sin and I turn to you, I believe that you died on the cross for my sin, I believe that you shed you precious blood for me
I believe in my heart that you rose from the dead, I receive you now as my saviour, I confess that you are my Lord and My God, Thank you for saving me, Amen

Kenya Gospel Campaign 2014

It was again a privilege and a pleasure to return to Kenya in May and hold another wonderful gospel campaign! We give thanks to God for all that was accomplished as many heard and responded to the gospel for the first time and were touched by God in their personal lives.

IMG_1536The lead up to the campaign was not without it problems with the campaign having to move location just a week before it was due to take place because of it being a security risk as a large crowd was expected. Tensions were high due to the continued threat of terrorism in the country, with a car bomb exploding in Nairobi on the day we arrived.

However the campaign was moved to a more secure location in Nairobi called ‘kosovo’, and although the crowd was considerably smaller than our previous meetings in Nairobi (due to both the advertising being delayed because of the location move and peoples fear of being in a crowd) we had a fantastic campaign.

The campaign was held for 3 nights, Friday to Sunday with worship and music being led by ‘Ushindi’ and ‘Evelyn Muthoka’. Each night the crowd danced and praised with joy and then listened intently as evangelist Steve Mullins preached a clear gospel message. As the call to respond to the message was given, many came forward to indicate they wanted to follow Jesus Christ and commit their lives to him.

Following the preaching of the gospel the sick and the downcast were prayed for, and we saw God move in amazing ways as many testified of Gods healing touch and power.

From Nairobi, we travelled to Kisumu where we stayed for three days as a base. We then travelled to and from Siaya where we held a two day conference. The conference on the first day was held at Victory Outreach Church and evangelist Steve Mullins shared a message on ‘God’s purpose for your life’. A number of people came forward for prayer at the end of the session and God again touched many lives.

We also had opportunity to visit the ‘Connect with a Child’ orphanage where we met and were entertained by the 30 orphans. Please pray for ‘connect with a child’ as they provide for and look after these amazing children ( )

The second day of the conference was held at Gilgom Church in Nyadora, and was hosted by Bishop Opondo. Steve shared on ‘God’s hearts for leaders’. The afternoon session closed with Pastor Tom Abungu and evangelist Steve Mullins laying out a vision to go to Siaya stadium next year and hold a county wide gospel campaign – the vision was met with wide approval and much excitement!

Please pray with us as we plan for this great event next year.

We give God praise once again for His faithfulness in not only giving protection to us as a team but also for those whose lives have been touched and transformed by the power of the gospel and God’s amazing love!

How blocked is your sink?

Posted on


I don’t know about your house but in my house sink’s get blocked!

As a family we don’t plan to block the sink, it just happens over time. I am so glad someone came up with a product that has the power to remove the blockage. When a sink gets blocked, as you well know the water does not run away, and if it does run away it is usually at an excruciatingly slow pace, but when the detergent is poured down the sink the blockage gets cleared and the water flows and the sink functions as it should. Of course if the unblocking agent is not poured down the sink the sink will remain blocked.

This is a bit like our lives. We have problems, issues that seem insurmountable. could it be that we have sin that has not been dealt with in our lives? Maybe we have been unkind to someone? Rude to someone? Not shown someone the love we should? Maybe we are holding bitterness and unforgiveness  in our hearts – and these things are causing a blockage so the Holy Spirit cannot work in our lives the way he wants to.

So what is the solution?

Just like there are products we can pour down the sink to unblock it – we also have something, when applied to our lives will ‘unblock’ and cause us to be free again and to live in the blessing of God. Of course I am talking about the blood of Jesus – the bible says ‘…the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanses us from all sin’ ( 1 John 1:7)

The blood of Jesus is enough to cover every sin, every misdemeanour, every problem. God has given us all we need and is ‘able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us’ (Eph 3:20)

Maybe you don’t know how the blockage in you life has occurred – you just know over a period of time, just like a sink, stuff has built up and is causing a blockage between Him and you, and maybe you and others.

The first step of correction is to come to God and confess any sin, ‘He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sin’ – that’s a PROMISE from the bible. Thank God for the blood, ask him to cleanse you, free you and help you live a life of abundance in Him.

Secondly, you may need to go and ACTIVELY forgive someone. Ask God for grace to do that.

Don’t waste time – go to Him today and let the blood of Jesus cleanse you so that the ‘rivers of living water’ Jesus talked about can flow out of your life again!

5 things we need…

John Wesley 2 Just recently I read a book about five evangelists God used in revival: George Whitefield, John Wesley, Asahel Nettleton, Duncan Matheson, and Howell Harris. Of course there have been many others God has used in bringing revival – but reading about these five caused me to ask a question:

What will it take to again reach the nations of the UK with the Gospel?

Each of the five above mentioned evangelists, and many others like them who have been used by God in revival and reaching nations with the gospel have one thing in common: they each were unashamed preachers of the gospel. I don’t know about you but in terms of the age and culture in which we live, an age which sees the preaching of the gospel as old fashioned and irrelevant, and a culture in which attempts to ‘encourage people to ‘make their peace with God’ through various methods that can seem to compromise at least some gospel truth, I believe more than ever that we need to regain our confidence and conviction in the preaching of the gospel.

The gospel does not change, God’s standards do not change, the hearts of men and women have not changed, and neither has I believe the main biblical method of evangelism – that of preaching the Gospel. Indeed the state of the Church and of evangelism should lead us to ask the same question a well known evangelist posed recently: Where is the raw, declaration of the Gospel message: Sin and Salvation – Heaven and Hell – Repentance and Faith?

In past times the preaching of the Gospel bore great fruit, as it does in many other nations today – may our prayer be that in this hour God will raise up evangelists, as I believe he is doing, to faithfully proclaim the Gospel, and that Churches and Church leaders will work with these evangelists in reaching the nations with the Gospel.

I would like to suggest five things I believe it will take, both for individuals who are called to minister the Gospel, and individual Christians across the land, to reach these nations of the UK:

1) PRAYER – there has been no real, authentic move of God without there first being a move of prayer. We have seen in recent years an increase in prayers initiatives across the UK – however, I believe it is time to pray for the evangelists, pray for doors to be open for them, pray for opportunities for the Gospel, pray for their protection, pray for their relationships with Churches, pray for souls to be saved – PRAY!

2) BOLDNESS – In Acts 4 the scriptures tell us that the religious leaders saw the ‘boldness’ of Peter and John, and later we read they prayed for ‘boldness’ to speak the word (Acts 4:30) If we are to be serious in reaching out then we will need boldness. Boldness to stand up for truth, boldness to proclaim the gospel, boldness to stand against adversity, boldness to share our faith.

3) LOVE – We can claim to have all the spiritual gifts we like but if we don’t have love the scriptures tell us we are no more than a clanging bell! Could it be that there are too many clanging bells around? Jesus said that the world would know that we were His disciples if we ‘had LOVE one for another’ (John 13:35) Not only are we to love one another but we are also to love those who have not yet made a decision to follow Christ.

4) TRUTH – The truth of the Gospel is powerful. It is life changing. We must not alter, change or depart from this truth. We must stand for it, hold on to it, proclaim it! In a world in which people are searching for answers we need to be carriers of the truth, and declarers of the truth. We dare not meddle with the truth when eternal destinies depend on it!

5) PERSEVERANCE – or tenacity. This means we will have to be persistent, determined, firm, resolute, relentless and single minded. The Bible says he who wins souls is wise (Proverbs 11:30) We have to have a resolve that nothing will shake us from the path God has called to. However hard it gets, whatever we face ( remember Paul faced shipwrecks, whippin8589130421447-big-waves-wallpaper-hdg etc. and he kept going!) we must keep going, we must keep our faces towards Jesus the author and finisher of our faith (Heb 12:2) We must keep praying, we must keep proclaiming, and we must keep going!

We need a mighty move of God and a wave of salvation to wash over the UK – lets pray and work to that end… NOW IS THE TIME!

This is urgent…

“We shall all stand before the judgement seat of Christ……. So then shall everyone give an account of himself to God” Romans 14:10 & 12
The gospel is an urgent matter.Why is it an urgent matter? Because without Christ men and women will be going to a lost eternity. We will all stand before God to be judged – only those who have given and committed their life to Jesus Christ can be saved – those who have put their trust in him, followed him and believed in him. That is the point of salvation. Not only are our sins forgiven because of the cross, but Jesus took our judgement as well. Give thanks today for Gods amazing gift of salvation – and if you don’t know Jesus, you don’t know for certain you will go to heaven when you die, come to him now – visit this page where there are some thoughts to help you further :

Only another year….

So as one year ends and another year starts, I want to ask you a question, a very blunt questions: Are you saved? Do you know, in a personal way The Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour? If you were to die tonight do you know for certain that you would go to heaven?

For some of you reading this it may seem a morbid thing to be thinking about on an evening when so many will be out drinking and celebrating. But what is being celebrated? In some senses tomorrow if it comes will be just another day. Another day where God has given opportunity for people, including you dear reader, to repent and come to know HIm. The bible no where promises us tomorrow.

The wonderful news is that God loves you and I.

He sent Jesus to die for us, to take our sin, our shame, our guilt. Jesus paid the price for our sins by giving his life upon the cross.

The bible says, believe on The Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved, if we confess with our mouths and believe in our hearts that God has raised him from the dead we shall be saved! (Rom 10:9)

So what about you? God is calling you as you read this to turn to Him – I trust you will and that this new year will be the best you have had!
