"God With Us"

Posted by Asa on September 25, 2016 at 5:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Many times in the Old Testament, God promised to be "with" His People at all times. He famously proclaimed, "Fear not, for I am with you" (Isaiah 41:10). Yet this comes to life in a completely new and amazing way through our Saviour, Jesus Christ ! Isaiah made a prophecy (7:14) saying, "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call His name Immanuel." - This was given 700 years before Jesus would come.

God's Great Grace

Posted by Asa on March 16, 2015 at 4:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I've just been reading Amos 1-5 about God's judgements & all that He has done (ch. 4) including giving them a lack of bread, withholding rain from them so that they lack water, sending locusts to devour their vineyards & trees, killing the young men, taking their horses captive, overthrowing them as in 'Sodom and Gomorrah' & warning of how He will send fire on them. It even begins in chapter 1 by saying this was said '2 years before the earthquake', so ...

'In Jesus Alone' poem

Posted by Asa on February 11, 2015 at 10:30 AM Comments comments (0)

I wrote this poem also quite a while back describing how this world can't offer anything that compares to Jesus:


This world cannot offer the level of Love,

or the Joy found in Jesus alone,

From the oceans below to the mountains above,

I no longer consider this 'Home'.


Shallow pleasures of Sin, for which I were a slave,

Began many wars of the past,

They Remain beside footprints approaching the grave,

The ...

'Unlocked' poem

Posted by Asa on February 11, 2015 at 10:30 AM Comments comments (0)

I wrote this poem a while back, and decided to call it 'Unlocked', describing the way Jesus has Unlocked the chains of sin:


I was lost but couldn't find the way.

The Way found me.


I believed lies but couldn't change the truth.

The Truth changed me.


My works could never purchase life.

The Life purchased me.


The chains He broke, it was the proof that Jesus is the Key.

Dear Dorset

Posted by Asa on February 8, 2015 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (0)

The other day I was listening to an instrumental when 2 words came to me as it played, 'Dear Dorset'. Dorset is a place in England that I've visited many times since birth & I've gone to a beach there called Durdle Door around 3 times each year (which is my favourite place on Earth). So a few days later I decided to start writing lyrics to the instrumental making it into a song. I wrote the deepest lyrics I've ever written and recorded the track all within only a few days because God was ...

THE BATTLE IS GOD'S

Posted by Asa on January 17, 2015 at 6:35 PM Comments comments (0)

In Judges 7:2, God doesn't let Gideon fight the Midianites because the people of Gideon were too great in number & would glory in themselves if they won saying "my own hand has saved me". In other words, it would be easy for good rappers to collaboratively make a chart-topping song so they would be more likely to boast than if I did because I would see it as the work of God, being less talented & popular.


This connects to Ephesians 2:8,9 which says we are saved by Gr...

Long Way 2 Go

Posted by Asa on January 12, 2015 at 1:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Galatians 5 says 'if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing'. That's really powerful because it shows that if we think we've reached our destination, then there's no use of having the car - Jesus! The fact is, we have a Long Way 2 Go!! It's funny that I read this actually because I was wondering on the bus today why I felt a little less freedom than usual. I'm free in Christ but I didn't feel that way. Feelings aren't everything - I know - but they do suggest & imply.

Is Hell Fair?

Posted by Asa on January 3, 2015 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

I see a nice person - is it fair that if that person doesn't trust in Jesus, he or she is punished for their sins? Jeremiah 29:10-14 is all about God's love & mercy in salvation from captivity. But after this, it goes into God's judgement for those who reject Him and His offer of forgiveness. At first, reading this, it didn't seem like it was the same God. But this shows His justice, which raises a question: is justice good? Deuteronmy 32:4 says that all God's works are right but the word...

It's now 1am on 1/1/2015. In other words it's New Year's Day!! What a blessing to see how God has kept me through another year & how I've grown in so many ways.

Years mean nothing - they're just measurements of time. Time continues to move even now. Each moment I want to grow & have the resolution ...

JUST JESUS!!

Posted by Asa on December 19, 2014 at 6:10 PM Comments comments (0)

For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. (1 Corinthians 2:2)


Sometimes we can be so caught up in debating the Bible that we forget the One who should be the focus...Jesus!


The Bible is so clear:

We've messed up BIG TIME!!

God fixes up thru Christ.


- It's our own love of money that's brought about the prosperity gospel.

- It's our own focus on ourselves that...
