RIOT…The Rioters Guide to Justice

Khan the London Mayor says “the capital has uncomfortable truth with historical links to slavery.” May I suggest that the discomfort is felt not because of a statue but because those with issues of hatred and bitterness in them fail to deal with their own historical past. I’m talking of your own personal history. You have to pull down the image you have of yourself first, the image that you are nothing, the image that you are a failure, the image that you are no good. It is a pointless endeavour to take down statutes when the real core problem lies in human heart and soul.

History cannot be obliterated and that’s the problem folks have with themselves yes themselves. Folks fail to confront their own past hence they go on a rampage to tear down the physical while themselves remain a slave in their heart to their own past.

History is a reminder not to repeat the past. and those that don’t recognise it will become victims of it. The statutes teach us about the good times and also the bad times and history cannot be eradicated. History is not our history, history is essential to our wellbeing now and teaches us how to deal with injustice and wrongdoing.

Pull Down your Image and Statue First! the one you have of your Past failures, injustice done to you, abuse you received …

When I first went to America in the 90s I was happy that there americas had so much pride in their history, I love history. The very fact that America loves a hero, fascinated me. land of the free! when folks demonstrate because they hate statues, just agues me to think that these same folks have no pride in their nations history, they cant celebrate it, yet they choose to live there? Thats hypocrisy, better for the hypocrites to leave and allow folks who love the US to enter in.  I for one would exchange with you. If you dont like your freedom then emigrate to Europe or China. Then lets see if you will complain!

Heres the issue, If you want justice, deal with you own personal past first. Ask God to forgive you, and then forgive others who have hurt you. Go on your own riot, start with you, your attitude, anger and hate. START A PERSON RIOT OVER YOUR OWN ISSUES. Ask god for forgiveness and healing. This alone brings freedom from one’s past. Pull down your own statutes first! 



The Snare of the fowler

FOWLER: trap-setter, hunter, one who catches birds of prey. The snare of the fowler,

The believer is a eagle, nothing should stop our flight and fight. Yet as online preachers we have surrounded ourselves with our adversaries, as we seek to go into the world’s territory there are many traps that are hidden to us online. Enticements lie all-around us, news too. We are constantly bombarded with news, fake and real. Every friend is now a reporter who gets their news from mr and mrs unknown, Preachers have become reporters NOW telling us what we already know, they have quit sharing the gospel, for that requires effort, study and time with God, its easier to catch the latest virus of fake news and fear and take on the peddling and meddling of their Fake and break narrative.

One pastor talked today of folks telling him they were “tired” “Everyone tells me the same story,” he says. “I’m tired” it used to be “I’m busy,” now they have less work and some no work yet folks are tired. Could it be that the constant bombardment of news has wearied everyone down? I watched two preachers today (sunday) preach online, they looked beaten down, I felt for them, but I see what’s happening, the cares of the world are coming on us and they are not ours to carry. It’s our job to worship, It’s God’s problems to sort out the world. The race issue cannot be solved by demonstration. Never has and never will.

I have listened to preachers this last week on facebook, most seem to be overcome with the Black and white issue. Believers in Jesus should never have a black/white vocabulary or black/white issues…. we don’t think that way. The true church has no colour issues because we who once were alienated from the kingdom of his son have been made nigh by his blood and has made us all one in him (Eph 2;13) and hence torn down the dividing wall between us (v14).. True believers stand for truth and that truth is we are one. So Christian let the world make their comments, our commentary is Christ. He alone solves the issue.

Now I’m not saying that preaching on these things is wrong, I just saying that a constant stream of the same thing is wrong when preachers just comment on the worlds situation and do not provide a godly solution ie in the form of instruction, counsel and wisdom. I have one friend who preaches against these things and he offers a solution in his sermons, he’s real with it and certainly not biased. That’s different. I’m talking about folks who have become TRAPPED, preachers  who have become victims of the worlds behaviour and have so aborted preaching truth and life and now become gossipers and news commentators. The constant barrage we face on facebook from these believers yes so called believers is sickening,

For example I gently corrected a brother for constantly referring to the black white issue in favour of blacks, He went off at the tail end. He may have thought I was racist, I’m most certainly am not, just angry at how everyone jumps on the bandwagon when one man unfortunately and sadly dies because of police brutality when white men who suffer the same never ever get the same attention from these preachers. It’s wrong and evil. The only way we are ever going to conquer societies woe’s like this is to a love the brethren, all brethren and live as if there are no black and white issues between us. In Christ there are no black and white issues. if there is I doubt your conversion. 

The fowler is out (trapper, bait-layer) He lays his trap all around us and the first thing he wants is your mind and your attention. then your voice and your earthly wisdom. if he can get your mind he has your pen, he has your platform he has your voice.


1. The spirit of the fowler snares a man first with his words.
“you have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth (Prov 6;2). ENSNARED: to lure, entice, snare, lay a snare or lure, set a trap 1a)  to lay snares (fig. of devices of wicked) 1a2) fowlers (participle) 1b) (Niphal) to be ensnared, be caught by a bait 1c) (Paul) to be entrapped (strong).

“When preachers become reporters and commentators of todays worlds events they become part of the fake media who offer no life or hope, rather they become victims of the very delusion they claim to preach against… Preacher, deliver yourself. clean up your act. We don’t need any more social commentators we need real Jesus preachers.#mymindmatters ” (my twitter quote)”

2.The spirit of the fowler Lures the believer into transgression
“An evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips,But the righteous will escape from trouble. (Prov 12;13 NASB). “By transgression an evil man is ensnared,But the righteous sings and rejoices.” (PROV 29;6 NASB). “Moreover, man does not know his time: like fish caught in a treacherous net and birds trapped in a snare, so the sons of men are ensnared at an evil time when it suddenly falls on them.” (ECC 9;12 NASB).

3. The spirit of the Fowler wants your partnership.
The enemy of your soul is not happy till you demonstrate with him. You become active with worldly demonstrations. He desires that you should seek the arm of the flesh to solve cultural issues. He receives his enemies reward and draws favoUr from him. “Ensnared”…(Hithpael) to grasp each other… as one making an allegiance with the enemy. He promotes his haters agenda. And so receives his haters reward.” My son, if thou be surety for thy friend, if thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger,” (Prov 6;1). DELIVER yourself. make no alliance with a fool lest you take on his ways.

4.The Spirit of the fowler hates correction
Spiritual death comes his way. “He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.” (Prov 5;23). He is overcome by his rage. he looses focus on that which God has called him to and so hates correction forma loyal friend.

5. The Fowler has an unclean spirit
It’s more than black v white its the work of an unclean spirit. it shows partiality to no one. It make a man mess with history in order that he can abort his destiny and so make him as much a prisoner as his ancestors.  The blind fall into the trap “For evils without number surround me; my sins have overtaken me, so that I cannot see. They are more than the hairs of my head, and my heart has failed within me.” (Psalm 40;12).

6.The Spiritual fowler LOVES ENGAGEMENT
Don’t participate in the counsel of the ungodly. Separate yourself from the way of sinners. Sinners know not the ways other Lord neither do they have the peace of the Lord. Don’t be ENTANGLED. Don’t get caught up in their ways. Don’t become a victim of whats going on. Don’t make the words problems yours.
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful” (Psalm 1;1) “The wicked have laid a snare for me: yet I erred not from thy precepts.” (Psalm 119;110).

The cords of death encompassed me; the torrents of chaos overwhelmed me. 5The cords of Sheol entangled me; the snares of death confronted me. 6In my distress I called upon the LORD and I cried to my God for help. From His temple He heard my voice, and my cry for His help reached His ears.… (Psalm18;5). “Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.” (Psalm 91;3 NIV).

Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence! Save us O God from the fowlers snare. Keep us pure and clean from worldly contamination and let our praises be always to thee. 



Pentecost and the Name of Jesus

  • Matthew 3:11 New International Version (NIV) 11  “I baptize you with [ a ] water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with [ b ] the Holy Spirit and fire.

Mark 1;5 and mark 1;8. reveal that John had baptised as an outward symbol alone while Jesus came to baptise man for a whole change of person. John could not baptise for the remission of sins as remission of sins was not available until Calvary. John baptism therefore was a type of salvation but not itself salvation. The name of Jesus was not the revelation of John. The name of Jesus came with Jesus, and with misname came his command to baptise all nations in his name. (Matthew 28;19).

‘I indeed baptise you with water unto repentance’ said John, ‘but he that his coming after me is mightier than I,’ John stopped with repentance, his baptism could take man not further than repentance. Man could therefore repent and repent and repent many time over without receiving the mercy of knowing that their sins were forgiven. Only Jesus could forgive sins and do so. this then is why baptism for the remission of sins in his name was therefore the later practice of the disciples at pentecost.

Today many leave out the name of Jesus at baptism, which means in essence they still practice a Johns baptism and not Jesus baptism or what we call salvation as in acts, hence you have an “easy believism”  gospel and not the true gospel of acts 238. A false conversion too.

Luke 24;45 tells us that after Jesus appeared to the disciples he “opened their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures… it was here that they received the revelation of the name and the power of it.

And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. (v47) and And ye are witnesses of these things (v48)

From now on they would themselves be witnesses of the death, burial and resurrection, why they themselves would partake of his death burial and resurrection. It would be as if they themselves were there at his death, burial and reduction for they would enter into that which he entered into and the same then would be for all men who would also take on his name.

“Forgness of sins in his name,” this then is the power and spirit of pentecost. Pentecost is a revelation of the name. There is no such thing as a pentecostal meeting without the revelation of the name. There is no such thing as Pentecost without baptism in Jesus name. BAPTISM IN JESUS name is baptism by Jesus. Jesus is the one who baptises us when we call his name. Hence we are his through baptism and become part of the family that bear his name. Pentecost the event, baptism the experience.

The Jews receive Pentecost was salvation coming to the Jews. Acts2. The Gentiles receive Pentecost was salvation coming to the Gentiles. Discover more in my book, below.

Baptism, You Cant Leave Sin without it!


Someone said why do you baptise into the name of Jesus. well because Jesus told us to do all things in his name () If you were to hold an event you I am sure would post a contact name to it, You are the contact person for your event. Im sure you would not want the folks who are planning to turn up to it, contact another event holder across town and go to his event when its your event, you are advertising

The name of Jesus tells me that this baptism is an event Jesus is holding! He is the baptiser and the one performing at the event today. O Glory, baptism into his family and the name that bears it. This my friend makes you and I a “baptised one” candidates for the preaching of the gospel to all nations… in his name (Acts 4;12. Matt 28;19. Col 3;17).

I don’t know about you but I belie that’s the greatest Job description in the world and more than that it comes with the free offer of eternal life. Now thats alone is worth going to one of the Jesus events!


Back in 96 I went to a Jesus event. I was challenged by a pentecostal preacher who is preaching what I am today, praise the lord. He told me about how folks were baptised into Jesus name for the remission their sins. well sounded ok but it wasn’t for me. I told him I was already baptised and the details dont matter as I knew Jesus. Well I was stubborn I went back to my home and returned to Wales.

Well I must have been wrong somewhere because what he said bothered me. I began to search Isaiah and the test drew me. I mean it pulled at my made me thing deeper. “I am the lord there is none other” and  and many similar verses in Isaiah. I began to see yes God was one. Then I thought if he is one then his one name must be Jesus, because that is the name above all names.

The I looked at acts and tried to find out of anyone had taken on the name in acts in baptism, and I found out that’s exactly what they did. I tried to find our of anyone was converted the roman road way of asking Jesus into their heart like I had done many years ago, and couldn’t find anyone, not one person the bible was converted like me! I must be in heaven all by myself.

I knew I was wrong. I went and told my 80 years old mother I’m going back to Texas to repent before the preach and ask him to baptise m into the name of Jesus for the remission of my sins according to the scriptures (acts 238)

Friend. I want to be saved don’t you. I want it like the apostles had it. If we want to see it like they saw it then we have to believe it like their beloved it. No point in asking God for a mighty revival unless we are willing to be the first candidate. How about you my friend have you been to a Jesus event, a baptism where you take on the name for yourself, yes thats event you down want to miss. You may have to go six thousand miles like me, but of theres water nearby! yes water nearby, what doth hinder you? (Acts 8;36) An event in his name held by Jesus himself where he alone baptised you into his family. There’s salvation in no other name for no other name if given under heaven among men by which they can be saved. Welcome to the Jesus family the greatest family on earth.

LIFE EVER-MORE For the Baptised one.

The reality of Life can not be understood other than first man confronting the reality of death. When a man experiences baptism into the name of Jesus for the remission his sins, it is said that he has indeed died to self and sin. The old man and his nature is buried with Christ in the watery grave and is resurrected as a new man, the new creation in Christ. It is this confrontation with death that enables a man to say with all confidence that he fears not death, for it is indeed an event behind him. from now on he lives, and is forevermore alive in Christ (Romans 6).

Made for More .. Working the Works of Jesus 

John 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day
Greater works that this shall you do. (John 14;12).

Building Authenticity in Ministry
A shifting hour…
 Its time to know our Day… Healing, deliverance and salvation, the church of the living God is employed in these matters. The focus of the hour of this day, has to be emphasised. Distraction abounds and so does sin that comes along with it.  The preacher is to have no doubt about his mission and assignment, his role, Jesus said. “heal the sick cast out devils. cleanse the lepers and raise the dead.” Oh how we go for lesser things then wonder why the signs and wonders are absent.If we can focus on what is of God we can rid ourselves of both gimmicks and critics. I want the authentic! and I sure you do too!  In todays church you would think that our jobs description is up to us, no, the ministry job description is not mine to concoct, engineer, remake or adjust. The job role is clear  “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature; he that believeth and is baptised shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned and these signs shall follow them that believe in my name (note the condition) they shall cast out devils; Who are the one that shall cast out devils) Those that believe in the name….they shall speak in new tongues, they shall take up serpents and if they drink any deadly thing it shall not hurt them. ( Mark 16)” Luke confirms it, “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give. “(Matt 10;8) THE GREATER WORKS…


Working the Works of Jesus

The works that I do bear witness of me (John 5;36),
No man can do these miracles that thou doest except God be with him (John 3:2).
As men of God we must strive to enter the narrow gate. The signs and wonders the Lord wants us to work this hour are not the lesser signs of falling down as we are ministered too, or praying for me at the altar, we have to go beyond these things and move into the realm where God does the work, the manifestation of “his” power. The supernatural must replace the normal, we have become tied to the traditional rather we should be  loosed for the supernatural. Jesus said, “Heal the sick, cast out demons, raise the dead” These are the works of the Lord, for these things to take place we have to let go of our ability and submit to his work ,the work of his hands, yes we must work the works, I agree but the works we are called to work are the works of God which are demonstrative of his power and manifestations of his glory, this generation is waiting to see these things. May the Lord use you today, in a new move, a demonstration of the works of his hand ….Nothing less will convince this dark, truth hating generation.


Is OUR Ministry

A Ministry of Restoration: Miracles, their variety, Healing by a word or a touch, restoring hearing to the deaf, sight to the blind speech to the dumb. His command to us;  “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.” (Matt 10;8).
A Ministry of Deliverance: In his name and by his power. he spoke to the demons “Go” and they went out of the man and into the swine. To the paralytic “they sins be forgiven thee” (Matt9;5) To Lazarus he said “come forth.” No man can do these things unless God is with him. Deception is thus impossible. authenticity is thus evident. His command to us; John 20;23 Whoever sins ye remit they are remitted.
A Ministry of Revelation: “in him were hid all the treasures: the spirit abounded in him, in revelation and demonstration. Revelation comes from God, “He knew all things” He knew the Father and declared him, revealed him. Revelation precedes demonstration. Revelation determines revolution. Where there is no revelation of Jesus there is no demonstration of his power. We need revolution! Men with revelation see revolution. (Acts 2;23,24  Revelation; Acts 2:38,39 Revolution).
Ministry of Reconciliation: Reconciling man to God. “and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity” (Ephesians 2;16). A no prejudice ministry. “Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.” (2 Cor 5;18,19). A ministry without walls and limits. “For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.” (Ephesians 2;24-16)



Commissioned of God: “My servant whom I have chosen” (Is 42;1 ). “A living stone chosen of God and precious” (1 Peter 2;4-6 ) Finding God’s will for our life is more a matter of knowing doing God’s will in our life. The answer to this then is, do the works of Jesus, this is God’s will for us.
Qualified by the God:  “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to preach” (Luke 4:18).  “For he whom God hath sent speaketh the Words of God.” (John 3;34).
Approved by God. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. A man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him (Acts 2;22).
Preaching the one True God. No other name, preaching all things in his name, followed by signs and wonders in his name and persecution because of the name
Doing the works of God. Greater things that this shall ye do.


You are God’s PROPHET

For all things I have heard of the Father I have made known unto you (John 15:15).
This is important, the things of God are important. today we have prophets telling us how much money is in my bank account, and what your mothers name is, and what your telephone number is. Jesus did not come to tell you your telephone number. I already know my telephone number! These same men do not tell us of God’s attributes, rather they focus on their attributes. They never tell us Jesus is God, they reduce him to a prophet, that way they can be like him. Prophet1, major 1 ? Prophets are needed by the church and are valued by the church yet the abuse and misuse has no part in the assembly. Haughtiness, arrogance, self importance, human intelligence, artificial or human has no value among us. We need the mind of God, teach us Christ, lift up his name. We have a reputation to keep and a God to make known. Let’s keep it real!


Experience your Awakening

Awakening is when a mans soul arises to a new found revelation, truth awakens his mind, the Spirit awakens his zeal, new fire arises in his life just as the sun arises in the morning haze. A new day begins. This new beginning is when he encounters the REVELATION of the God/man Jesus the Christ.

And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. (Acts 9:1-7).

Awakening is not having a great meeting, Awakening is not your church having great meetings, awakening is not folks being slain in the spirit, although all these things be great, awakening is A REVELATION OF JESUS  himself first!

Your New day does not start with clocks and calendars but with REVELATION and TRUTH  A new dawn arises in your heart when you seek TRUTH in person, because thats what Jesus is Truth in person. When TRUTH becomes known, Jesus visits you!



Jesus came to Saul. He said “Lord” he knew him only as “Lord” he wasn’t  Saul’s Lord bit he knew about The Lord, The Lord God. He did not know him personally because he had no revelation of his name. He said who are you LORD, then the LORD said I AM JESUS. from that moment on Sauls life took on REVELATION. Revelation of Mission, Revelation of Jesus, Revelation of the gospel. Saul knew the power of TRANSFORMATION. he taught,


Isaiah too saw the LORD. “For mine yes have seen the Lord of hosts…Also I heard a voice saying of the LORD saying whom shall send and who will for us.Then said I Lord send me” (Isaiah 1:6-8). Isaiah like Paul saw Jesus, Jesus appeared to them the result A revelation of their lives mission. Pastor here is the key to folks being active in global missions. First Divine ENCOUNTER with Jesus then a divine sending Forth in his name as a witness of his appearance. We must meet Jesus. search him in the scriptures read what Isaiah said about the One true God and his name. revelation with comments JESUS will appear to you and you’ll have knowledge of your mission and your live will be changed.


Why do folks preach an easy believism asking Jesus into their heart gospel when there is no evidence of any one saved on the bible basking Jesus into their heart. The answer they have not met Jesus.

Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead (EPH 1:15-20)

God open my eyes that…. I may know…. the hope of my calling
God open mine eyes that…. I may Know… the glory, which is mine inheritance
God open mine eyes that…. I may know… the exceeding greatness of your me, us who believe
God open mine eyes that… I may know… This power that raised you from the dead, this gospel of the death burial and resurrection this true gospel that has power, which must live in me.

There in no other gospel read 1 Cor 15:1… Pauls gospel, the death burial and resurrection of Jesus is the gospel that became MY GOSPEL.. (Rom 2:16 Ro 16;26) Paul preached a resurrection according to “my gospel” Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to “my gospel(2 Tim 2:8).

Pauls mission was to make All men see.. This gospel.. That which was the gospel of Jesus (John 3:5) had become his! His gospel. DIVINE OWNERSHIP. Is it yours.. too? No wonder Paul was fanatical about his mission..

“If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward…to make all men “see” what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ” – Ephesian 3:2-9

When man makes the gospel of Jesus his gospel then the mission of Jesus became his mission!

PRAY: JESUS, If you would visit me through your word I shall Know YOU and You’re exceeding power (which is his gospel). (Ro 1:16). This is a DIVINE KEY. The Power we need today is HIS GOSPEL. the gospel the apostles preached. “God I want what you have, you gospel must be my gospel!” There is no power in todays easy believsm asking Jesus into your heart say a prayer after me gospel.

The exceeding power is in Paul’s gospel the death burial and resurrection gospel. When man gets this gospel he too experiences what Jesus experienced and what Peter experienced and what Paul experienced a death burial and resurrection to thats why we are WITNESSES.. You can say “it happened to me. I am a witness of the death burial and resurrection of Jesus because it happened to me and in me!”

Lord I don’t want fake power. I want it like Peter and Paul had it. If I see YOU then I shall be like you. God open mine understanding today of your name so I can preach your name to the gentiles like Paul. GIVE ME A REVELATION OF YOUR NAME JESUS. So I can have Paul’s mission, Pauls revelation and Pauls passion.
