This Sunday @ Healingsprings fellowship!

If you are in Chadwell St Mary or the surrounding area, please note that I will be speaking at the Community Church Chadwell, under the theme: 

How To Make A Difference In Our Broken World. 

This talk will focus on contextualisation using the Emmanuel (God with us in the here and now) Principle. 

In other words, how we can make the scriptures relevant to the challenges facing our world locally and globally. 
So, join me for their 9:30am service at:

“Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.” – Amos 3:7

This Sunday @ Healingsprings fellowship

Last week we explored the historical setting in which the prophet Hosea operated. We looked at the Covenant, its impact on the destiny of the nation of Israel, and perhaps most importantly, the difference with the New Covenant by faith in Christ.

This week I will delve into the underlying theme of the prophet’s message, and the challenges he faced in his effort to win the hearts and minds of his audience back in Covenant with Yahweh. 

In his words: 

“When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son. But the more they were called, the more they went away from me. They sacrificed to the Baals and they burned incense to images.

It was I who taught Ephraim to walk, taking them by the arms; but they did not realize it was I who healed them.
I led them with cords of human kindness, with ties of love. To them I was like one who lifts a little child to the cheek, and I bent down to feed them” – Hosea 11:1-4

Sunday @ Healingsprings fellowship

Last week we explored the poetry, history, culture, spirituality landscape, theology, philosophy, teaching, vision and worldview of Hosea. 

On Sunday I built on those spiritual gains as we focused on the history, structure of the book, and overview of the chapters.

In the words of the prophet: 
“Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence. 

Let us acknowledge the Lord; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear;he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.” 

– Hosea 6:1-3

Today @ Healingsprings fellowship

Unlike Amos, Hosea’s take on the spiritual state of Israel and Judah is slightly different. For Hosea, the faith had to modernise. As such, contextualisation of imagery and language were his tools of choice in this final attempt to win the hearts and minds of the people back to Yahweh.
At this crucial point in the history of his people, how far can he adapt contextualisation without loosing the essence of his faith? 
So, like most thinkers and theologians worth their salt today, this dear friends was Hosea’s dilemma. Hosea saw a thin line between obscurity and syncretism in his quest for a safe space for his reform agenda. 

Join us as we explore the poetry, history, culture, spirituality landscape, theology, philosophy, teaching, vision and worldview of Hosea; and its application and relevance in our time.
In the words of the prophet: 

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. – Hosea 4:6

This Sunday @ Healingsprings Fellowship! 

The Book of Amos is inexhaustible. 

It possesses a rich tapestry of poetry, literature, philosophy, ethics, history, culture, spiritual context, and theology. 
It is perhaps the single most important Book in the Old Testament for life in the Middle East before the Exile. 
This is particularly important for Christian Theology because without his insight we fail in fully apprehending life pre and post the Exile. Like volcanic lava, this period shaped the spiritual landscape for our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ – especially his moral and ethical teaching. In fact the writer of the Book of Revelation will go on to use his format as a template for his oracle to the early church. 
Over the last couple of months I have taken Healingsprings Fellowship on a journey in an attempt to project Amos’ theology, prophecy, visions and teaching into the 21st Century. This is in the hope that his ideas will challenge our thinking, and permeate every facet of our lives.
So, in crystallising this seminal piece of Hebrew literature, this Sunday I’ll be treating his: Vision of the Altar, post-exilic prophecy, and other key themes.

Today @ healingsprings fellowship 

Last week I made an attempt to treat Amos’ visions, their meaning and the success of his intercession in averting the calamities from the nation. And I also covered subtopics like intercession and visions.

Moving forward, I will be looking at prayer as I crystallise this seminal piece of religious literature at today’s lecture. 

In an effort to articulate the sense of urgency and importance of his message, the prophet wrote poetically:  

The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy? – Amos 3:8

God be praised! 🙌🏿🙌🏿🙌🏿

This Sunday @ healingsprings fellowship 

In our studies on the Book of Amos we explored Amos’ Theology in light of his Oracles and Sermons.

Lessons from this book is important especially at a time when our nation is bitterly divided spiritually, intellectually, socially, economically and politically.  

To this end I will be treating Amos’ visions, their meaning and the success of his intercession in averting the calamities from the nation. 

As part of my lecture, I will give close attention to 3 subtopics: prayer,  intercession and visions. 
In the words of Amos, 

“Surely the Lord God does nothing, without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets.” – Amos 3:7
