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

On the sea of life one does not always know when a storm will suddenly brew up and release itself. All can be composure when the atmosphere changes which heralds’ darkness, thunder, lashings of rain and wind. For many it has been a fearful experience. The same occurs in the unfolding of daily living. You can be enjoying a wonderful time of blessing when everything is flowing positively freely and fully and all is and looks well. This can alter rather unexpectedly and one is in a baptism of suffering and fire. Being able to respond and negotiate this is not always easy. Thankfully the LORD is around to lend support and give some hope and assurance His promise holds good amidst such. He says: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame kindle upon you” – Isaiah 43: 2. Be encouraged, the LORD will always be present and never let you down whatever dark road you are called to traverse.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“Before the mountains were brought forth, before you had formed the earth and the world,
even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God” – Psalm 90:2

As human beings, we are used to things having a beginning and an end. We are born, we grow up and then we die. While the human heart never really gets used to the idea of death (because we were created to live forever), we do know that there is a time to start things and a time to wrap them up. Our tiny minds are so finite that we cannot possibly comprehend things that are beyond our existing paradygms.

God on the other hand, has been around forever. There has never been a time where He didn’t exist. Before the mountains were created, before the earth spun on its axis, God was. He was not born and He will not die. He is the everlasting God. He lives forever. While this thought might have a tendency to short circuit the wiring in our brain, may we ask God by the power of His Holy Spirit to help us comprehend His everlasting nature.

I believe that the more we can meditate on the amazing vastness of our God and Father, we will begin to realize that He created us to experience this eternal life with Him! And the eternal life that He wants us to live is really not a time continuum or a destination, but a relationship. In Jesus’ high priestly prayer in John 17:3, He describes eternal life like this…Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. (NIV)

May each one of us take great comfort in knowing that our Father is the everlasting God and He has called us to live an everlasting life

WISDOM THAT WORKS
SUBLIMINAL MESSAGES
Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Young man, obey father and your mother…… Every day and all night long their counsel will lead you and save you from harm ……. For their advice is a beam of light directed into the dark corners of your mind to warn you of danger and to give you a good life”.

Read: Prov 6: 20-26
I don’t know about you, but the older I get l seem to get vivid flashbacks of some of the quotations my parents used to say. After making my comment or observation, which I imagine is coming from my own fountain of knowledge, it suddenly occurs to me that my words of wisdom are not as original as I at first thought and I will say, “You know, my mother used to say that”.

As parents we sometimes think our children are not taking the slightest notice of us when we attempt to bring guidance or direction to them. Today’s proverbs make it quite clear that constancy of communication, or saying the same things repeatedly to try to address our offspring’s behaviour problems, is not as futile as we might sometimes imagine.

It’s as if our constant expressions of caution act like subliminal messages and act as guardians by day or night. They can have a massive impact in the dark corners of their mind so that a sudden mental recall will save them from harm a danger when they need it.

Don’t despair parents, keep the messages flowing!
