First of all I would like to say happy New Year to all of you out there. For me personally the New Year has certainly started in a rather exciting way and God is doing some amazing things in my life. I can’t really write about any of it just yet so all I can do for now is just share some other things that have been on my mind with you all...Read More »
The Real Problem

I really don’t have anything to say at the moment except to share some things that are on my mind. Unless you’ve been living under a rock you would have heard the “News” in recent days that has sparked the gun control debate yet again. I don’t want to get into the details of it here but I do want to share some things...Read More »

Last month I shared my “Testimony” on a Praise Blog post. I know it was a rather lengthy read but I certainly hope it was well worth the time invested into it. I no longer have a website of my own now, so I really wanted to share it in a way that would make it accessible for people to read in the future… I certainly don&...Read More »

I want to open this Blog post with a passage of scripture. There is something that has caught my attention today and I really want to say something about it. I hope that all of the things that I have to say about this will be made very clear to all of you out there… (Genesis 27:27-29) So he (Jacob) went to him. (His father Isaac)...Read More »
Ministers Of Reconciliation

I know that I have “Blogged” a fair bit this month. It turns out that I have had a lot on my mind and all this spare time on my hands. There is really no better thing I can do with my time than to spend at least some of it in the Word of God, and I know that all of this time spent in the Word will be of great value to me (and to...Read More »
Chronicles Of Receiving Grace And Mercy
Posted in Personal on Sun, Nov 18 2012 - 06:44 PM
The following is an extract from my website www.jtamusic.com This website is about to be taken down from the net and for this reason, I thought this here would be a great oppurtunity to share my testimony with you all. I hope that (as you read this) you will come to understand how real Jesus Christ is to me and how much he longs for a...Read More »
The Prince Of Peace!
Posted in Evangelism on Mon, Nov 12 2012 - 08:54 PM
I have come to realize that my last few Blog posts have not had any “Scripture” references in them. This does not mean that what I have been saying (in these posts) has not been “Birthed” in the “Truth” of the “Word of God” and with much “Prayer” (about the words that have been said),...Read More »
One Night Many Years Ago!
Posted in Personal on Sat, Nov 10 2012 - 06:23 PM
One night many years ago, I was attending a prayer meeting for our church and it happened on this night that after a time of “Worship” together, one of our Pastors asked the following question… “What do people feel God is saying to our church?” No body said anything. So the Pastor said ...Read More »
End Of The Line!
Posted in Music on Sun, Nov 04 2012 - 08:36 PM
After seven years of giving away my music on my own website, I have finally decided to pull the pin on it. I still want to give my music away without charge because that is one way that I can continue to share "The Message" of what's on my heart with people all over the world and I think that an "Online" website is still the best way to...Read More »
A Brother In The Lord!
Posted in Personal on Fri, Nov 02 2012 - 09:21 PM| Comments (2)
I must say here (at the outset) that I am not some great teacher or a pastor or even a man of eloquent speech. (I might sound like it sometimes but I'm not) To fellow Christians everywhere I am just a “Brother in the Lord” sharing things that I think every Christian should know from the lessons I’ve learned in my own experiences...Read More »
What Marvelous Grace

I realize my last post might have been a little heavy. Because of this I think this post requires a change of pace. (We’ll see how we go anyway.) So in the words of some great preacher who has gone beforehand “Let us begin with a Bible verse”… (John 1:10-13) He was in the world, and though the world was made...Read More »
The Leaven Of Beatlemainia!

I don’t think the thinking of ‘the western world’ has seen such a shift in its thinking as it did between the years of 1962 to 1971. This initially may sound very profound or philosophical to some of you and yet it’s to ‘those’ some of you that I wish to address this Blog entry… Why do I &lsquo...Read More »
What's wrong with the Gospel today?

The following is said with a lot of love for the Church... Well it’s been three years (almost) since I last recorded a song I’ve written and I still haven’t got anything new to say through my music. That’s a strange place for me to be in because I’ve always communicated my thoughts through writing songs...Read More »
The Cross of Christ!
Posted in Music on Tue, May 20 2008 - 05:31 AM
1 Corintians 2:1-2 (NIV) "When I came to you , brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclamed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified." I want to point out to you that Paul's emphisis on the Cross of Christ was for a reason......Read More »

Luke 11:9-13 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; Seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; and he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. 11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12 Or if he asks for an...Read More »
The Holy of Holies!
Posted in Music on Fri, Feb 08 2008 - 12:34 AM
The Holy of Holies in the Old Testiment was the location of the Ark of the Covenant that later disapeared around the time of the exile to Babylon. The Ark contained the two tablets of the law, a jar of manna and Arrons staff that had budded. God had indeed established his throne in Jerusalem and this was literal because of the presence of God that ...Read More »

A couple of posts ago I advertised the release of a new web album. This album was made some time ago and has been limited to a local independant CD that has been shelved and is not availible online. The final cut of "In accordance with your love" has been superseded along with a new followup album called "For your namesake" and ...Read More »

Good Fruit – The evidence of a changed heart. By Lenard Ashton We are not Christians because we call our selves Christians. To be called a Christian is to be called Christlike. That is that there should be something in our lives that speaks to people saying “Because Jesus lives on the inside of me changing my...Read More »
A heart cry! (Subtitled Love is a verb!!!!! it's a doing thing!!!!!)
Posted in Music on Sat, Aug 11 2007 - 01:01 AM
I know there are people out there (Not just in the world) who are suffocating because they have a hazy picture of hope. 1 Corintians 13:13 says "and now these three remain: faith, hope and love, but the greatest is love". Faith needs something to attatch itself to. It needs a picture of hope. Faith and hope work together through love...Read More »

Hi All.I will be keeping you updated this week. It's getting busy again as the time to record the next project is at hand.
