Tyrone Arthur: Weapon of choice

Weapon of choice

The greatest commanders of all time will all have a similar mantra that they lived by, to win a battle one must understand their enemy. For an undercover agent to be successful they need to become one with those whom they look to infiltrate. When it comes to war, humans with their hunger for power, have always searched out preferred weapons of choice. The Spartans use defence as a strength, A Hoplon Shield was “made from wood and the outer part was covered with bronze. They weighed around 30…

Tyrone Arthur: Everlasting Covenant

Everlasting Covenant

History has recorded the finished work of the cross, throughout the ages many have suffered death by crucifixion, this is not the work I draw your attention too. The event I apogee is God in the flesh dying on a cruel Roman cross, paying a debt he was guiltless of, then buried in a tomb and on the third day, after that rock had been sealed and guarded by roman soldiers, He rose again from the dead with his glorified body and eventually seen by all the apostles who testified to that truth…

Tyrone Arthur: Live for God

Live for God

Conflict is part of life, from a very young age we understand the idea behind a clash, a struggle over something as trivial as a sweet. We have all been tarnished with the brush of sin and instinctively our reaction is to retaliate. Even once saved the fight goes, in fact, it intensifies, why? Because our eyes are opened to God’s law and we have had our consciences renewed to remind us of wrongdoing. From here on in, repentance and forgiveness is a way of life for the Christian, if not we…

Tyrone Arthur: transformation

transformation

(Psalms 143:10) “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God!” How often do we pray “thy will be done?” and yet when it doesn’t seem to line up with what we have imagined, we are perplexed. Or when we strip it down do we really mean, “my will be done”, just so long as I end the prayer with “your will be done”. It’s the understanding of alignment, look at the columns I have penned, perfect alignment, all it took was a click of a button and it snaps into place. Now that how we need to learn…

Tyrone Arthur: The good fight

The good fight

Once again sleep eludes me as my mind races considering the will of God for my life and the failures that so easily beset. The frailty of the flesh and the way it so easily hankers after so many contradiction. And yet the fight must go on, we must press towards the mark of the high calling of God. There is no other excellent we would ever truly hunt, how can one who has been touched by the grace of God have it any other way? Whilst we have breath we have hope, but then it’s over and it will…

Tyrone Arthur: The will of God

The will of God

(Mark 3:35) “For whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother.” Here we see the Lord Jesus making a statement, which fulfils the requirement for us all, if we want to be included in the family of God, it’s all about finding the “will of God” for our lives. Its can never be about our will but HIS! God created mankind with an objective, for them to align their wills with His. There is obviously many angles to this, but in order for Him to be pleased with what He had…

Tyrone Arthur: Heritage

Heritage

Heritage is something that intrigues us all, we all like to know our history when it come to our ancestry. The “Black lives Matters” movement that is now in full swing has piqued the interest of many. Samuel L Jackson has now travelled down a road seeking out his origin; Gabon in West Africa and this documentary can be viewed on many platforms. I am told that I come from the lineage of a Prime Minister, on my mother’s side. My grandfather’s father’s bother was supposedly Louis Botha, South…

Tyrone Arthur: Our response to God's call...

Our response to God's call...

An ineffectual call will always land on deaf ears, but an effectual call will always reap its desired result; salvation in and through the finished work of the cross. All glory, will always, into the ages of eternity, belong to our blessed Redeemer, the Great, the One and only Lord Jesus Christ, the One in whom I will boast. Amen and hallelujah! Election; those who God has and will save, from the vilest of the vile, the meekest of the meek and those in a deep hole of desperateness, they will…

Tyrone Arthur: Just as...

Just as...

Luke 17:26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man.” A day just like yesterday for most, but when Noah entered the ark and the gang plank was hoisted, water started falling from the sky and need I remind you this had never happened before, vegetation was water from the ground up, that the day where God opened the heavens and then what followed is almost too drastic to deliberate, but envisage it we must, so that we can learn from it; the flood came…

Tyrone Arthur: Understanding Salvation

Understanding Salvation

Just the other day I was asked, “How did I realise that Jesus was the answer?” The implication behind the question was how and who influenced me to take the plunge? I suppose we all play our part in leading an individual to the feet of Jesus but its God who saved, no one else can make that happen; “God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth…” We must never make the mistake and think we decided to follow Jesus because of who we are and what we may have done…

Tyrone Arthur: Typology

Typology

(Act 8:9) “But there was a man named Simon,” As my thoughts penned yesterday were on the warnings we receive from the Lord Jesus on deceiving men and all those that lie against the truth, I thought it may be good to look to the bible as it could give us some warnings and what those types of men and woman may look like. The bible is full of typology and we will often see the same pattern throughout time and through passing generations. The events of the Old Testament often depict similar…

Tyrone Arthur: Inheritance

Inheritance

The portion of one’s inheritance is not up to the individual but rather up to the one who has the power to pass on the legacy. This is an obvious truth that so many of us miss when it comes to salvation, why? I suppose our default action always stems from an attitude of self-worth. We put in the effort and therefore we deserve what we get. It’s the hope we have that drives us forward. We set goals and set monies aside to achieve those goals, our end of the year holidays an obvious exponent…

Tyrone Arthur: Voices

Voices

I’ve always know this to be true but never realised the life-threatening power behind it until now; the renewing of the mind is an extremely powerful thing. In fact, it moulds our thinking without any efforts from our side. The mind receives the information and whilst processing, it shapes our perceptions on an array of topics. Ask yourselves have you changed your minds on anything that you were dead against in the past? You will soon realise the power behind the “renewing of the mind”. It’s…

Tyrone Arthur: Weaknesses

Weaknesses

Weaknesses are always seen as a negative trait when it comes to our personal abilities, but this is a misnomer when we view it through the eyes of faith. The apostle Paul gives us very clear indication on how we are to view our weaknesses. And may I remind you of whom this man was in the flesh; he was a Hebrew, an Israelite and a direct descendant of Abraham. He was a better servant of Christ, who had been tasked with the same office and with far greater labours. He was a man who faced great…
