WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 128,000 people have visited it since 2006. On the left hand side of the introductory page is a host of subjects and material that have been placed during this time and is there for your interest, study and perusal.

I feel it is time and right to change the format and to present day by day something a little simpler and trust will benefit and bless those who visit it. It will consist of a Prophetic Word for Today, A Golden Promise from the Scriptures, Just a Thought by Aaron Linford. Choice Quotations and something to Focus your mind on are included that can be developed more fully by you. I trust you will find such refreshing and helpful.

AN IN WORD FOR YOU TODAY

Only as there is an openness and readiness on your part will you receive from the LORD all that He wills to give to you and do for you. As far as Her is concerned, He is constantly and completely open to you and ready to bestow all that you require to live successfully and happily. There is never any want or deficiency on His side only a whole commitment to bring about the maximum in your being and life. Today, learn to reach out to Him in a greater manner so that He can bring about true and total fulfilment at this stage and set you up for even something more. You may be limited but not He.! There are no bounds to the LORD and out of His fullness He would make your existence full and blessed. So, now is the time to break open and permit Him to move in and achieve all He desires to do.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

”Instead of your shame you shall have double; and instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be to them” – Isiaah 61: 7

In the Hebrew tradition, the eldest son of the family would receive a double portion of the family’s inheritance. So if I understand this correctly, if there were 5 heirs, then the inheritance would be divided 6 ways and the eldest son would get 2/6 of the inheritance which would be double the inheritance that his brothers and/or sisters received.

Isaiah 61 is a prophetic declaration of freedom pointing to the day when Jesus would come to the world and be the fulfillment of all the promises made in this amazing chapter of the Bible. You can read more about this in Luke 4:14-20 if you like. Isaiah declares that the coming Messiah will bring freedom to the captives, comfort for the grieving and beauty for ashes. He also declares that we will exchange our shame for a double portion of our inheritance!

Since the double portion belongs to the eldest son, we know that this promise is referring to us sharing in the inheritance of our elder brother, Jesus Christ. No longer do we need to carry the stigma of shame! God has made us heirs of His inheritance and joint heirs with Jesus (Romans 8:15-17). May the reality of all that is proclaimed in Isaiah 61 become a tangible benefit in your life today. Instead of shame, you will receive a double portion of your inheritance!

WISDOM THAT WORKS
Rev. Bob. Stevenson
RENEWED HEALTH AND VITALITY

“Don’t be conceited, sure of our own wisdom. Instead trust and reverence the Lord, and turn your back on evil; when you do that, then you will be given renewed health and vitality”.

Read: Proverbs 3: 7-8

The multitudinous variety of health potions in the form of dietary preparations and vitamin supplements, gives testimony to the fact that the quest for eternal youth and health is still very much the pursuit of the masses.

It is also a medically accepted fact that ones emotional, psychological and mental condition has a large part to play in your overall healthfulness. Here in Proverbs the observation is made, that there are even further reasons for physical wellbeing than those established by the medical world. Here are some suggestions that we would do well to take note of in our own quest for renewed health and vitality.

In the same way that the adrenaline glands can release poisonous secretions into our system when we worry or fret, so we shall be similarly infected if we don’t give serious heed to controlling the following.

– A conceited, self opinionated attitude.

– A cocky, arrogant know it all disposition.

– A prideful delusion that we will somehow be protected if we choose to dabble in that which is of a dubious nature.

NO! The only antidote to such conceit is to trust and reverence the Lord and be sure you don’t become too full of your own importance.
