Jesus

The Son of God.  The Saviour of the world.  The man Who gave His life for us. And the title of the mini-series starring Jeremy Sisto. Yes, this is shameless clickbait (Easter season, after all!).  Welcome to the 6th edition of My Fortnightly Movie/TV Thoughts.  Last fortnight I reviewed Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014).  This … Continue reading Jesus

The 1st Year

My sister’s blogiversary post – complete with a hilarious comedy skit containing several bloggers as characters (myself included!).

Racheal's Novels

Today Racheal’s Novels turns a year old!!!

I love you guys. You truly brightened my day with your likes and views.  These past twelve months are among the best I’ve ever had – my writing skills have improved so much (of course, that wouldn’t have happened without all of you, and my family). Thank you all so, so much!

It’s truly been a fun, enjoyable and memorable year.

Wonder what this second year will be like?

Here’s a story I wrote to celebrate this anniversary! Some of you will appear as characters in this story (please don’t be mad!).

Enjoy!


Do I have everything?

Yes, I do.

I can’t wait! It’s amazing to think that I’ve been here a whole year. A smile appears on my face as I remember the day I moved in. Being very apprehensive, but excited, I threw myself into making a name for myself and…

Exodus: Gods and Kings

Blockbusters Reviewed

Welcome to the 5th edition of My Fortnightly Movie/TV Thoughts.  Last fornight I reviewed Die Hard (1988) and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984).  Picking this fortnight’s film/series was difficult; it was originally going to be Die Hard 2 (1990), then Ant-Man (2015), then The Ten Commandments (1956), before last week seeing and finally settling on:

  • Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014), rated M for mature themes, violence and coarse language

That is the Australian rating; in the United States, it’s rated PG-13 for violence including battle sequences and intense images.  As usual, following the review will be the film’s trailer, and a clip.  As usual, here’s the disclaimer:

Exodus: Gods and Kings

I’ve had mixed feelings over the years about watching Ridley Scott’s reimagining of one of the most famous Biblical stories.  When it first came out, I was…

The Creator’s Name

J-M's History Corner

There is raging debate today as to what is the true Name of our Creator, whom many simply call “God” or “The Lord”, generic titles that could apply to any deity.  There is also a lesser debate as to the true Name of God’s Son, our Messiah, commonly known by the incorrect Anglicised “Jesus”.  The letter “J” did not exist as a separate sound until the 1500s, before which it was just another way to write “I” or “Y”.

The most popular version of the Creator’s Name is Yahweh, while others say Yahuah, Yahveh, Jehovah or Yehovah.  In each case, His shortened Name is Yah.  The most popular version of the Messiah’s Name is Yeshua, while others say Yahshua, Yahushua, Yahusha, or Yehoshua.  The Name of the Messiah is largely viewed as being dependent on the Name of the Father.  So, what is the truth?  The following video discusses the…

Pesach – The Feast of Passover

Today is (in Australia) the first day of the Feast of Pesach, known in English as Passover.  I explain my calendar here: Yom Teruah - The Feast of Trumpets.  You can view my feast calendar here: Feast Calendar. Many think Passover and other Biblical feasts don't apply because "Jesus did away with all that".  That … Continue reading Pesach – The Feast of Passover

My Fortnightly Movie/TV Thoughts

Blockbusters Reviewed

Welcome to my third Fortnightly Movie/TV Thoughts post.  You can view the previous one – in which I reviewed The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005), The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008), The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010), One Night with the King (2006) and Amazing Grace (2006) – here.

You’ll be noticing a change from now on; due to the amount of time it takes to type up 5 reviews, I’ll be limiting myself to one review per post.  This fortnight’s movie/show is:

  • Skyfall (2012), rated M for violence and infrequent coarse language

That of course is the Australian rating.  In the United States, it’s rated PG-13 intense violent sequences throughout, some sexuality, language and smoking.  As usual, here’s the disclaimer:

WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD.  PROCEED AT OWN RISK.

At the end will be the film’s trailer…
