Christmas:
The breast milk of the denominational churches.
Christmas is for the kids - how often have you heard that said? You know, when a child is born, he or she is nurtured by the mother's milk (unless there is a medical or other reason not to)for a few weeks or even months until the time is ready for them to be weaned on to more solid foods.
Fine, at Christmas, the masses gather in their local churches to listen to the Christmas message, great, but what happens next? The Pastor, Rector, Vicar, probably won't see those people again until they want their child christened, they want to get married or there's a death in the family.
What's my point? It is this, Church - it's about time you weaned your regulars onto the solid food of the Christian faith, or should I say Messianic faith. Yahushua is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, OK, so you may lose a few people from the congregation, which equals a few ££££££'s or $$$$$$' s income, but at least you won't lose your appointment for your place in the heavenly kingdom!!

From the Summerhouse
I was sitting in the summerhouse, relaxing, as you do, when you've just moved a weather station and done a little digging, when the birds, blackbirds, finches, collared doves, started congregating in the garden, only natural really when you consider there are all sorts of tempting delights for them hanging from the trees and bushes. Have you ever watched birds closely in these situations? It doesn't matter how intent or frenzied their feeding, they are always on the lookout for the predator, for whatever they percieve to be an enemy which could and would drastically shorten their lifespan. No matter what shape it may come as - a cat, a bird of prey, a man with a net or a gun.
I was thinking, it is a pity more of us Christians don't have this ability to keep an eye out for the adversary, who also comes in many guises, sometimes even professing to be a believer in Christ, and like the Apostle Paul says about different gospels being taught, we need more than ever today in this 21st century to be awake and alert to false teaching, especially in the denominational churches, and not only those, but any church which takes a verse or a word from the Holy Bible and takes it out of context.
So, reader, please, please, be aware, there are many varieties of so called Christianity out there, if you have been looking and searching for one that suits your taste, check the teaching with what the Bible says, and see how it compares.
If you are new to the faith, please pray that Almighty God will open the eyes of your heart, so that He may reveal the Truth to you. 
There is only One God, and He is the same yesterday, today and forever. And He is the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, and the Father of Our Lord Jesus(Y'shua) the Christ.
The adversary doesn't need an invite into your heart or your life, he will find the smallest crack in your armour and push his way in, whether it be doubt, unbelief, comments from friends, he will try and keep trying.
Remain alert, and as you feed on the Word of God, remember to pray and keep an eye open for the adversary, or he just may devour you.
May Almighty God, bless you and yours, shalom
