That’s Ridiculous

Read below or listen to the full message here. In boxing there is a combination of 3 power punches, used especially in close confinement, where your opponent is 'getting in your face'.  It is the right cross - left hook - right cross.   Paul ends his letter to the Philippians leaving us impacted with 3 power punches to our lives.  Locked in close confinement, in prison, yet keeping a good attitude Paul has more than enough authority to speak on these topics we will touch on today! The first right cross is revolutionise your life through your attitude.  He then comes in with the left hook - be utterly transformed by what you think on.  His final punch, leaving his audience reeling with new life is the right cross of 'ridiculous faith'.  In fact all 3 naturally speaking could be perceived

Your 2016 is up the Mountain!

I will stand at my guard post and station myself on the lookout tower. I will watch to see what He will say to me  and what I should reply about my complaint. Habakkuk 2:1   Ever had a complaint?  or been dissatisfied with your current situation?

Biblical fasting means refraining from all food or certain foods for a spiritual purpose for a limited period of time. The Hebrew word for “fast” is tsôwm (twoom), which means “to cover the mouth.” The Greek word for fast is nēstěuō (nace-tyoo-o), which means “to abstain from food.” A fast is a highly focused period of time when we examine our lives and seek to align ourselves with the ways of God. We do this by separating ourselves from our typical patterns and routines and entering a spiritual experience for a given time. Fasting is a spiritual discipline and the
