The Eternal Yew In The Crumbling Churchyard

The Eternal Yew In The Crumbling Churchyard

To be sure, Christianity in the West is showing signs of worldly wear and tear. According to many reliable sources, our numbers are dwindling, our historical churches are being shuttered, and our Gospel message is rarely heralded as boldly as it once was. The future of the Christian faith, it seems, is in question. And yet did you know that there are over 1,000 centuries-old trees throughout the United Kingdom whose symbolic strength and longevity still preach on the everlasting nature of Christ’s kingdom and remind us that God is still on His throne?

For hundreds of years, the European yew tree has been an enigmatic, but familiar presence within the hallowed confines of many old churchyards across the British Isles. These striking trees, with their sprawling limbs and green needle-like leaves, have been a constant companion to the faithful believers of Britannia since the days when the Roman Empire still ruled over that rugged northern province. Today, these churchyard yews, over 1,500 by recent count, are acknowledged as an enduring British symbol of Christendom. Out of that number, around 250 are considered national treasures due to their incredible age and size, like the Crowhurst Yew in Surrey or the Fortingall Yew of Scotland. read more…

I set these words before you. I ask you to lay them to heart. Resolve, by the grace of God, to be an overcoming Christian.

I fear much for many professing Christians. I see no sign of fighting in them, much less of victory. They never strike one stroke on the side of Christ. They are at peace with His enemies. They have no quarrel with sin. I warn you, this is not Christianity. This is not the way to Heaven. read more…

Rude Awakening For The Christian Dreamer

Considering the deadly upheavals rising in the world today, some Christians who are spiritually asleep will be unmindful of the coming judgment.

And then, one day soon, these Christian dreamers will experience a rude awakening when the alarm of God sounds off and they are tossed from their soft warm beds.

Turn Up The Signal; Drown Out The Noise

In a very real sense, Satan and his myriad of fallen angels are perfectly positioned like ethereal transmitters to disperse their deadly falsehoods to unsuspecting humanity below in order to undermine the truth of God. As professing Christians, what signal are we sending out to counter this vile static?

Where Would We Be Without TRUTH?

Without truth, all the people on the earth would be lost in a stormy tempest of lies without a lighthouse to guide them to safe harbor. They would have no faith to chart their course, no hope in which to anchor their souls to God, and no love to fill their sails. Is this not the dire situation we are beginning to witness in the world today? How many poor souls are now living in fear instead of faith, depression instead of hope, and anger instead of love?

Why The World’s Dark Business Is Booming

Have you noticed that this world seems to be shifting more and more into a trajectory of chaos and uncertainty? Surely in an age of global connectivity, scientific precision and meticulous social engineering, we should be achieving a high level of stability, but this is not the case.
