Way back in the 1700’s, sailing voyages became more common and people started sailing farther. In both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, the sailors noticed that there was an area near the Equator where there was little or no wind. Without the wind to move their sail-powered boats, they would sometimes be stuck for days or weeks. They started calling these areas the doldrums. To be in the doldrums means to have low spirits, or to be inactive. This described what it was like when they got stuck crossing the Equator, and people have been calling these areas the doldrums ever since.

Have you ever felt that your life is in the doldrums? Sort of drifting along, with no positive action taking place and not quite knowing what lies ahead?  Partly because we have just moved house, and had one or two other life experiences that have held us back from normal routine, we have felt that our life was waiting for the breath of the Holy Spirit to begin to move us forward again, rather like the boats in the doldrums.

You may or may not have noticed that we haven’t produced a new Malakh magazine for some time, nor edited the web site or added anything to the Malakh Facebook page. This is because we have been seriously studying new light and ideas, purchasing and reading some challenging books, and testing and praying about our discoveries. It is so important that we take notice of 1 John 4:1: ‘Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.’ It is necessary to test and measure the things that we learn and make sure that they align with the Scriptures, and to consolidate new information and to allow the Holy Spirit to inscribe His truth in our hearts, making it part of our life and experience.

Having said that we are excited to begin to introduce some of the things that we are learning into the web site, and we hope shortly to begin work on the next Malakh magazine. As we introduce some discoveries such as the importance of certain extra-biblical books (Jubilees, Esdras, Baruch, Enoch etc) we realise that some of this new material will surprise and perhaps even shock our readers. We trust that you will read with an open heart and mind, and not be afraid to question and search for your own answers to the many questions it may throw up.
