Despite the spiritual darkness that is ongoing and seemingly ceaseless, there are certain voices calling out for a revival across the globe. Great! But is there any understanding of what qualifies as a revival in the context of walking with Christ? “If My people who are called by my Name will humble themselves, and pray […]
A lot of people like me who grew up in the 1960s and 1970s have fond memories of what was on prime-time television. One common denominator was blazing like a shining torch – good always triumphed over evil. Be it a cop show, cowboy western, or wartime actioner – the bad guys always emerged the […]
In train wrecks of varying magnitudes, the carnage spills over from the pulpit into the pews. A good many never saw this moment coming; a sizeable bunch of these churchgoers is still reeling from the shell shock in utter denial and disbelief — how on earth did we get to see the unthinkable at point-blank […]
“Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings” (Genesis 3:7). Here is how the present selfie nonsense began. Eyes would focus on the need for coverings; much of it would be of an elaborate nature. How a […]
Terry James never ceases to inspire, encourage and educate. My dear friend more than tickled my brain in his recent article posted on Rapture Ready (Racing Toward Rapture). He wrote about his very near miss where a glorious eternity mattered. But he made a point that would be hard to erase from memory: what happens […]
For a sizeable portion of our close walk with the Lord, the headwinds which come in our way often take the form of hyped-up criticism where our lifestyle is concerned. Our harshest critics are not from the unsaved but from people professing to be Christians. Chief amongst them would be those who subscribe to the […]
A couple of years before the onset of the COVID carnage, two people I knew from my school days were met with untimely demises. If I had been pitted against them in terms of physical fitness, they would have been way ahead of me; in the eyes of many casual observers, I was the least […]
It was like elective surgery with little joy. One year before the COVID carnage erupted, I sauntered into the shell of my stomping ground. The road, which began with a gentle climb, had an out-of-place feel – much like an aftermath of a Mexican divorce. The narrow-gauge single railway line that hugged this avenue was […]
My sojourn in the hospital did not have a shortage of enthralling moments. They were of therapeutic significance; the recovery from a life-threatening pulmonary embolism was indeed fast-tracked. More noteworthy was my spiritual growth; it was by leaps and bounds as far as walking with the Lord mattered. Individuals from various walks of life would […]
The post Pews That Are Pathways to Perdition :: By Edwin Tan appeared first on Rapture Ready.
It is never a case of one-way traffic; my articles do resonate with a sizeable number of readers – so I get quite a lot of emails from them. At the beginning of the month, I received a lengthy email from a reader from Spain. It was all about the grim situation over there where […]
The post Deep in the Heart of a Fool’s Paradise :: By Edwin Tan appeared first on Rapture Ready.
There was not much of a crowd at one of my favorite eateries – far from the usual on the last Friday of the month. A fair bit of takeaways but a thin show of diners. I got the picture; the 2022 World Cup soccer tournament was keeping many from sitting down for a meal […]
It is not the new normal that many would look forward to. Rather, a dystopian society instead of a utopian one. The masses moan and frown while that vicious few rejoice, popping the champagne as they cheer their diabolical dreams come true! “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness […]
