The Deepest Abyss & the Highest Heights

Morning Thought: The cross shows you the depths of hell and the heights of heaven. It fathoms the deepest abyss of man as Jesus hangs suffering as an outcast, rejected by God and man. And yet, paradox of paradoxes, the cross unveils the highest of heaven. On the cross we see the lamb of God slain before the foundation of the world, the pinnacle of sacrifice. God’s heart and love for you is displayed in graphic and undeniable detail. And the glory of it all is that death is swallowed up in victory for those who believe. “He will swallow up death for all time, And the Lord GOD will wipe tears away from all faces, And He will remove the reproach of His people from all the earth; For the LORD has spoken” (Isaiah‬ ‭25:8‬ ‭NASB‬‬).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from eight to twenty-one. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia ( We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School ( I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
