Sa Tiko Kei Keda Na KALOU.

When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon,he said,":The Lord is with you,mighty warrior." Judges 6:12.

When God calls us to a task.God equips us to accomplish it.When God called me 20 years ago,I believe that God will lead me to complete a task and give the ability to accomplish it.My next project is,"On Line Ministry" which will open in June.

I see similarities between my experience and the story of Gideon.God called "mighty warriors" long before Gideon saw himself capable…

Among these native Fijians, was a prominent high chief by the name of Ratu Sukuna who would later distinguish himself in government service. Ratu Sukuna, who was studying at Oxford University in UK, tried to enlist in the British Army but was refused. He responded by…

The Heresy of Worshiptainment

The great heresy of the church today is that we think we’re in the entertainment business. A.W. Tozer believed this to be true back in the 1950s and 60s. Church members “want to be entertained while they are edified.” He said that in 1962. Tozer grieved, even then, that it was…

Na KALOU Dau Cakacaka Mana ~ Miracle Working God.

Text: "...Go your way,and tell John what things you have seen and heard;how that the blind see,the lame walk,the lepers are cleansed,the deaf hear,the dead are raised,to the poor the gospel is preached." Luke 7:22. (NIV).

Miracles happened when you have faith in God.I believe that Like's Gospel includes this story to reassure us when our faith wavers and it's human nature to be plagued by uncertainties.Perhaps Jesus knew that believers would need to have their faith bolstered from…

Text: The Spirit helps us in our weakness;for we do not know how to pray as we ought,but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words. Roman 8:26.

In this age of communication - tweets,texts,cams,blogs and status updates - we are rarely speechless.But coming to God during the most difficult times,during the most daunting situations,often leaves us speechless.We are utterly at a loss for what to ask.How do we bring to God our deepest concerns when we cannot find the…

Na Nomu Vakatulewa. (Your Free Will.)

Text: And God said,"Let us make man in our own image,after our likeness,and let them have dominion..." Gen. 1 :26.

When God created everything, it was Good, and gave us the FREE WILL.God endowed people with great freedom and potential,which could be abused as well as used.People rejected God and continue to do so,,which makes them liable to sin,alienation from God,and death,leaving people gravely lost and confused.

Sin basically signifies an offense against God.and…

Text: The lord will fulfill his purpose for me;your steadfast love,O Lord,endures forever.. Psalm 138:8.

King David contributed all His wealth to the building of the temple in Jerusalem.He saw no other mountain bigger than His God and went on to say that,"I'm fearfully and wonderfully made."What else are we living for?Often I fall into the trap of comparing myself to other people.When I look at the impact they seem to have on the world,I feel as if I don't measure up.
