Hearts On Fire
(Marriage Is Honorable In All and The Bed Undefiled – Hebrews 13:4)
Two hearts meld and beat as oneSkin to skin, hot to the touch
Swaying hips wanting so much
Ruthless passion, righteous lust
A whispered caress, a gleeful thrust
The feel of authority, the need to submit
Milking a moment… every drop of it!
We two, ordained; not by chance
Pleasure each other in this erotic dance
Bodies swaying in sweet ecstasy
Minds merging in pure harmony
Lost… In a dream existence,
Swept… Without resistance,
Freely… We bond and share
Perfect love casts out fear
Hearts on fire, it started with a kiss
Two hearts merging in orgasmic bliss!

My Love, my Dove, my Undefiled
Precious Jewel of The Nile
My heart, it beats for you my dear
Priceless Treasure beyond compare
Joy erupted my heart did bow
When we exchanged our Covenant Vow
It’s a match that’s blessed for sure
No doubts, no fears, I am secure
Your words like dew drops of the night
Forms a blanket that wraps me tight
Lips like lilies drenched with wine
Your covenant love is mine oh mine
Lights like diamonds in your eyes
Only your touch, my nature rise
Gazing upon your face and form
Within my heart there brews a storm
From your breasts I feel your fire
And it explodes my own desire
I search for your lips, yours find mine
We feed the need and on the love-feast dine
Beneath your Venus-Mound a flame
When I enter I forget my name
I ride the wave till it breaks the shore
Surface for air then dive once more
Passion and fury is ignited
As we ride this storm united
Body and soul celebrates love
As our union sends praise above
Giving ourselves unselfishly
Strengthens our bond of fidelity
So come my love let’s prove tonight
True covenant loving is dynamite!

What I Learned About Pursuing Purpose and Family Life From “The Incredibles” Movie
Through the lives and experiences of each of the main characters I have learnt some very valuable life lessons which I will share with you.
Through the character, Mr. Incredible I learnt the importance of being true to your purpose and following through on your dream in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
He was a superhero. That is what he was.
He wasn’t a superhero simply because he had super strength. The enhanced strength just made him super but he was already a hero on the inside.
When they stuck him in a boring day job with an Insurance company bogged down by red tape designed to curtail the efforts of good citizens trying to make good on their rightful claims he still found a way to assist them in circumventing the “evil” bureaucracy and get justice done without having to use any super powers at all.
Mr. Incredible was a hero at heart and he was driven to fulfill his destiny.
Over the past 25 years as a Bible Teacher many people have asked me the question, “How can I find my purpose in life?”
The correct answer is multifaceted, of course but one clear indication to your purpose is to identify that one thing that you cannot help but think about constantly.
What is that one thing you find yourself drawn to and find yourself doing naturally and unconsciously?
What do you day-dream about? What would you risk your life for?
If you can answer these questions you will have one clear indication as to your call in life.
Mr. Incredible found himself being a hero even when it was outlawed, and even when he couldn’t use his super strength to help someone he still found a way to lend a hand.
On the flip side there is a lesson Mr. Incredible had to learn and it is something everyone, especially us men need to learn as well.
Once you’re married, a meticulous balance must be struck between fulfilling your personal purpose and your duties and responsibilities to your home and family.
Mr. Incredible was so consumed with fulfilling his destiny as a superhero he began neglecting his marital and familial responsibilities which brought discord and the inevitable breakdown of discipline in his home.
His wife, Elastigirl felt personally neglected and abandoned with respect to parenting their kids and managing their home and her mounting resentment if left unchecked would have threatened to destroy everything they built together as a family.
Thank God because of the perils they faced together as a family, these issues were resolved by the end of the movie but not without Elastigirl going through her own metamorphosis and re-discovering her own purpose as well.
Here is where the ladies can take note and discover something of value.
He could have gone back to the earth and fashioned a body for Eve… Why didn’t He?
I believe God did things the way He did to give a clear indication to women that they are indeed created equal to men in every respect yet in the context of the home and family there are distinctly different offices for male and female.
The woman was made a “Help Meet” for the man, these Hebrew words simply mean a “Suitable Partner.”
They DO NOT mean a woman is less than a man… Women are equal yet different!
God created the man first and has ordained it that the man is the head of the family, he determines where the family goes but the thing most men don’t realize is that the woman determines how they get there.
This was so clearly illustrated in the movie you have to wonder if the Holy Spirit had a hand in directing it.
When the Incredibles Family left syndrome’s Lair and headed for the city to stop the “Evil” Machine from wrecking havoc, Mr Incredible decided where they were going but when the van landed and they were trying to figure out the best way to get to the heart of the city it was Elastigirl, in defiance to her husband’s will who correctly identified the most expedient route and executed it safely.
Women are NOT made subservient to men. They are made equal, qualified Partners.
Elastigirl had to discover that her own destiny was hidden within her husband’s destiny as a superhero.
Is this the reason God specifically took something from inside the man to create the woman?
Is this why the woman was hidden inside the man when God first created him? To indicate that she will perfectly fulfill her own purpose as she comes into alignment with her husband’s?
Elastigirl certainly discovered a new sense of purpose as she united with her husband in the fulfilling of his own purpose and eventually each member of the family fell into place discovering and fulfilling their own individual purpose as well.
Elastigirl was spot on when Mr. Incredible uttered those iconic words, “I’m not strong enough” and she responded with, “You don’t have to be, if we
That’s almost the entire movie in one sentence!
Brilliantly done… Brad Bird!
She learnt how to assert herself in the world and take what was rightfully hers without crushing others in the process.
He learnt how to explore and express his own unique gift without abusing it, using it to help rather than hurt others.
And Jack-Jack, the product of two super-powered beings began to discover his own nature and potential as a force for good and justice in the universe.
Of course, we have the negative example of Syndrome, the Villain who never discovered his own unique purpose in life but rather tried to hitch his wagon to another man’s dream and literally crash, burned and died in the process.
Tragically, Buddy originally saw himself as the hero but actually became Syndrome, the Villain of the movie instead.
A significant message here is that villainy is inevitable when one uses his gifts and talents for selfish gain rather than altruistically for the betterment of others.
The other significance is that Buddy never discovered his own personal purpose and became totally frustrated in trying to pursue his imagined role in Mr. Incredible’s life.
He then became resentful and bitter to the extent that hate filled his heart completely destroying his moral center.
He systematically murdered every superhero he could find all the while convincing himself that he was doing everyone a favor and that eventually he would be justified.
I think by every definition this would certainly qualify as a degree of insanity.
My final thoughts are… how many people right now are living fruitless, frustrated lives consciously or unconsciously abusing others around them all because they have never discovered and pursued their true purpose in life?
How many have allowed their failed attempts at being and doing something they were never designed for to make them bitter and resentful?
You are naturally loving and kind to others and look for ways to bless others. You become a giver instead of a taker.
There is no tragedy greater than to die without really living.
I believe that never discovering and fulfilling your purpose in life is never to have lived at all.
These are the things I’ve learnt from watching the movie… The Incredibles!
Love One Another as I Have Loved You
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:34-35
Living a successful life as a Christian is based entirely on learning to love others with the love of God.
However, loving each other does not mean compromising with people’s sin.
None of us can love more unconditionally than Jesus and He never compromised with people’s sin.
Loving unconditionally means seeing each other as God sees us and interacting with each other based on the knowledge of God.
On the cross of Calvary Jesus substituted Himself for each human being.
He died in their place so He can live His life through them.
He lives in us so He can experience life through us.
That means He experiences everything that we experience.
So, what do you think happens when we mistreat and abuse each other?
Because Jesus lives in us and experiences what we experience He feels everything we feel.
Every insult we hurl at each other… He feels!
Every lie we tell on each other, every betrayal of trust… He knows exactly what that feels like.
When we do it to each other we are doing it to Him!
When you look at another Christian with scorn, Jesus looks back at you through that person’s eyes and feels the hate you’re projecting at Him!
Exactly what we think of another Christian – In that moment – That’s exactly what we think of Jesus!
I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’
“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink?
Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’
“And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’ Matthew 25:35-40

Re-Thinking Homosexuality in Light of God’s Original Intent For Humanity
For the rest of the world there is much to debate.
Apart from the question of Morality there are also Political, Legal, Social and Health issues to consider when discussing the rights and wrongs of Homosexuality.
But for the Bible-Believing Christian, there is no such conflict.
This matter is forever settled in Genesis Chapter One of your Bible.
Homosexuality is WRONG!
God created the Human Race with a very clear purpose in mind, “Be Fruitful, Multiply and Have Dominion!” Gen. 1:28
This is God’s Prime Directive to the Human Race… The very reason we were created in the first place!
Two members of the same sex CANNOT fulfill this mandate… They cannot be fruitful and multiply.
The Ideology and Practice of Homosexuality is contrary to God’s original intent for Humanity and therefore wrong.
As a Born Again Christian this must be your ideological starting point, then you go from there and consider other aspects of the issue under discussion.
This is what having a Biblical Worldview means and having a Biblical Worldview is what must characterize you as a Kingdom Citizen.
As Christians, we must see things from the Bible’s perspective first, then consider every other aspect in light of what God has already said about the matter.
This is what protects us from ideological error and bad judgement.
So, is Homosexuality a sin… Most definitely it is!
It transgresses the most vital principle God laid down for the Human Race… Which is to reproduce other beings in His image.
In the beginning God made them Male and Female and instituted the Marriage of one man to one woman with the resulting family as the foundation and building block of Human Civilization.
To violate this intrinsic principle is to strike at the very heart of God’s Dominion of us.
This is why Homosexuality is not just another sinful practice… at it’s heart, it is the most fundamental rejection of God.
It is rejecting His image in us. If we are Homosexual or merely agreeing with it we are assenting to the rejection of God.
If the Human Society embraces the Homosexual ideology we will have universally rejected God.
This will create an open invitation for our children to be inhabited by every description of demonic spirit imaginable.
No wonder the entire society of Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed.
This was actually an act of God’s mercy in not allowing the devil to perpetuate the cycle of possession and destruction into the next generation.
Sin is progressive, with each successive generation it gets worst and would have eventually spread throughout the entire region!
Before you know it, another worldwide catastrophe would have been needed to eradicate the pandemic of demonic possession.
Bottom line, there is no greater rejection of God than to reject His image in you.
And this is what being Gay is… A fundamental rejection of God’s image in you and consequently His dominion over your life.
The Bible says, “Women no longer wanted to have sex in a natural way, and they did things with each other that were not natural. Men behaved in the same way. They stopped wanting to have sex with women and had strong desires for sex with other men.
Since these people refused even to think about God, he let their useless minds rule over them. That’s why they do all sorts of indecent things.” Rom 1:27-28
