WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 130,000 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, Wisdom that Works by Bob Stevenson, 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

In confronting the day ahead, start by being grateful that you are alive to deal with it in such a manner that will cause it to be both pleasurable and profitable. Know that you can seek the favour of the LORD upon it and ask Him to help you to negotiate it well. After all, He has bestowed it so that you may be blessed within it and made a blessing. Approach the hours ahead in faith, keep communion with the LORD as a priority and be ready to fall in line with anything that He seeks to reveal and bring about. Refuse to be anxious about anyone and anything, allowing heaven’s peace to influence you in a dynamic manner. You will find yourself in control through Him and capable of dealing with all that you encounter to immense satisfaction. At the end of this day you will have great cause to uplift your heart in praise to Him who has helped throughout.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.
Your rod and your staff, they comfort me” – Psalm 23: 4 WEB

Today’s promise is a much loved verse from the often quoted Psalm 23. Most times, we might quote this verse at a funeral service or at another time of extreme loss and of course this verse is fitting for those occasions. At the end of our lives, it is comforting to know that God will never ever leave us.

However, I do want to ask you to think of another application of this promise… Jesus told us that except a seed falls in the ground and dies, it abides alone (John 12:24). The principle of the Christian life is a continual letting go of things, allowing them to ‘die’, only to see them resurrected again by the power of the Holy Spirit. Whether those things are dreams or desires, the principle of the cross (death, burial, resurrection) is a resounding theme in the daily Christian life.

In that context, when you are feeling like God is asking you to surrender something dear to you, when you are in a sense walking through the shadow of death for something that you have hoped for, be comforted in knowing that God is very close to you in those times of surrender and His staff and r

WISDOM THAT WORKS
ENOUGH ROPE – Rev. Bob.Stevenson

“The wicked man is doomed by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him. He shall die because he will not listen to the truth; he has let himself be led away into incredible folly”.

Read: Proverbs 5:22-23

Have you ever heard that phrase “Give him enough rope and he’ll hang himself?” We use it to describe somebody who is so intrinsically foolish, stubborn, or self-willed that eventually they shoot themselves in the foot and all the consequences of their folly comes home to roost.

There seems to be no capacity within these poor folk to understand where their actions are going to ultimately lead them, and they seem to blunder on in blind ignorance, refusing to listen to any guidance or advice that may be given to them.

Only death is at the end of the rope of the person who is not prepared to listen to the truth. Listen to the truth about themselves. Listen to the truth about their actions and consequences. And lastly listen to the truth about God and eternity.

It is sad to reflect that there are such people around us who for some reason or other let themselves be led into all kinds of folly. Such folly will only lead to an irreversible doom both in this life and the one that is yet to come.

Jesus said, “The truth shall set you free.” May the Lord help us all to escape this self imposed doom and be prepared to listen to good advice.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
Dr. Billy Graham

Make the Bible part of your daily life, and ask God to engrave its truths on your soul.

The very practice of reading [the Bible] will have a purifying effect upon your mind and heart. Let nothing take the place of this daily exercise.”

Discover the Bible for yourself.

If I stick to the Bible and preach the principles and the teachings of the Bible, and quote the Bible, it has an impact of its own.
