My son recently said those words to me, and I was amused because he’s not the only one who has felt that way.
When Jesus told his disciples that he was going to suffer, be killed and on the third day raised to life, Peter took Him aside and began to reprimand Him. “Far be it from you, my Lord,” he said. “This will never happen to you!”
In response, Jesus said, “Get thee behind me, Satan!” Why? Read more…
Two of the most important phrases for me in the Bible are, “He is…” and “You are” where God is concerned, explicit or implied.
The words that follow these phrases are affirmations and declarations of the character of God as revealed through His prophets and His acts. Only when you know the God with Whom you have to do, can you truly and confidently say, “I know who I have believed, and I am persuaded that He is able…”
Here are just 20 things Scripture establishes about God:
Everybody knows there’s nothing commendable about being an amebo, but not many realise how dangerous it is or how strongly God feels about it. He is not indifferent to tatafo, and He tells us, at various times through different vessels, what we as His children should know about minding our own business. What does the Bible say about it?

It gives me no small comfort to know that regardless of what challenge I’m facing at any time, the Bible has something to say. From anger, to too much talk, sound counsel abounds in the Bible. It is not silent on the issue of laziness either. Is it merely a bad habit, or a potentially dangerous one? What does the Bible say about laziness? Read more…
Perhaps it’s because they’re tiny, or perceived as less interesting than the much-read Major Prophets, poetic books, Gospels, and the longer epistles of Apostle Paul, but these 7 books rarely get any love. If you rarely ever (or never!) read these books, then perhaps this is the year you should plan to read with an open heart and listen to what God is saying. Check them out HERE.
Last year, 221 followers of Christ voted in a poll I tweeted: “Where do you need to improve the most in 2017 by God’s grace?” Of that number, 39% voted prayer, 38% Bible reading/study, 15% life application, and 8% service/ministry.
I can certainly relate with the desire to pray more and pray better. Prayer is our lifeline to God, and all through Jesus’ life on earth, we see Him model the praying life.
Anthony Livingstone’s professional background is completely rooted in music. Not satisfied with the normal performance of music in a concert setting or a band setting, he began to experiment with merging other art forms together with music which gave rise to a new concept of the Christian Opera he developed and saw performed in several churches in Nigeria. As early as the late 90s, he became aware the potential of musically dramatized plays and the enormous emotional response it could bring forth.
Little did he know that writing, a hobby which he engaged in solely for pleasure, would become more precious to him than his first love – music.
He talked to me about the writing process, the Christian Fantasy Genre, and his latest novel which was recently published online as an e-book, Enemy of Darkness. Read the interview HERE.
