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 Golden Promise from the Scriptures, Wisdom that Works by Bob Stevenson, Choice Quotations and daily Meditations, working through the whole Bible. 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.

A GOLDEN PROMISE

“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus” – Philippians 4: 7

God wants to impart a peace to us that is so deep and so profound that our minds can’t actually fathom it! The Prince of Peace Himself is offering us the very same peace that causes His own heart to be at rest all of the time. (John 14:27)

In the busyness of life, when you feel like you are being pulled apart in many directions, God has promised that His peace will guard both your heart and your mind through Jesus. I like how the Amplified Bible translates Philippians 4:7…

And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. (AMP)

Jesus has already secured God’s peace for you. This peace cannot be grasped with a human understanding, but can only be received by faith in Jesus Christ. I pray that the overwhelming peace of God will rest upon you today and provide the protection that your heart and mind needs to live at peace, even in the midst of life’s storms.

WISDOM THAT WORKS
THE SLANDERER
Rev. Bob Stevenson

“To hide hatred is to be a liar; to slander is to be a fool”.

Read: Proverbs: 10: 18
It is no wonder that slander is a chargeable offence in the Criminal Justice Code because the intention behind a slanderous remark is to destroy somebody’s reputation or make an assault on their integrity. Verbal annihilation can be as damaging to a person’s well being as sticking a knife in their back.

Slander is the act of declaring publicly something that is untrue or at least has no foundation in fact. Even in the safety of parliamentary privilege, there are a host of verbal boundaries beyond which you, as the perpetrator of such statements, will not be permitted to go without getting severely censured.
To slander someone also means you have had to dig around in order to get some dubious information and your intention for engaging in this exercise can only be one of two motivations. You either hate the person you seek to slander or you are getting some reward for your efforts. In either case you are on dangerous ground.

Once vitriol becomes the means of venting your hatred you are on a slippery slide that will not only hurt your intended victim, but has the potential to rebound on you and severely damage your own reputation.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
HEALTH

It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver – Mahatma Gandhi

Good health is not something we can buy. However, it can be an extremely valuable savings account – Anne Wilson Schaef

When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost – Billy Graham

Rest when you’re weary. Refresh and renew yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit. Then get back to work – Ralph Marston

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
KNOWING GOD’S FAVOUR – Genesis 6: 8-22; 2 Peter 3

It must have been quite a terrible time in the days of Noah. The divine record has it (and it does not lie), “that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” – v5. All that God saw and witnessed made Him sick at heart. It must have been a hard and difficult time to be alive on planet ear

th. It was so bad that the only thing open to God was to judge and destroy the people. He would have desired that things be different.

In spite of the appalling situation there was one man who could not be classed amongst the society of his day, Noah. It called the generation of his day – ‘the world of the ungodly’ and he is declared as ‘the preacher of righteousness.’ He lived in direct opposition to those around him, producing a life that was acceptable and approved unto God. He discovered the matchless favour of the Lord towards him – v8. Instead of perishing with the rest He was miraculously saved along with his family through the goodness of God. He made world history because of God’s grace.

There is no need for you to fall foul of evil today in spite of its attractiveness and intensity. Although all those around you may be overcome of evil you can be preserved from its influence, power and rule. If Noah could rise up and challenge by life and word the wickedness of his day, so can you. It is God’s plan to show you His love and grace in rescuing you out of the disaster that is yet to hit the world. All those who love and serve God will be saved from the ultimate judgement that is to be poured out in this end time. God’s grace will both save and keep you from evil and secure from the coming divine judgement.
