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

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He who overcomes won’t be harmed by the second death” – rev 2: 11

We have an amazing future in store for us! We do not have to be afraid of judgment because Jesus Himself promises that those who overcome will not be hurt by the second death. When I think of this promise, I think of the verse in 1 Corinthians 15:55 that says… “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (NIV)

Praise God that death no longer has a sting over us! We don’t have to live in fear of death because our Elder Brother Jesus has conquered death and sin and the grave once and for all. Another Bible verse that comes to mind is from Hebrews 2:14-15…

14Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, 15and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery. (ESV)

Jesus has destroyed the one who once held the power of death so that we can experience true life and freedom of the fear of death! To echo again the words of 1 Corinthians 15:55… “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (NIV)

WISDOM THAT WORKS
FABULOUSLY RICH
Rev. Bob Stevenson

“The Lord’s blessing is our greatest wealth. All our work adds nothing to it”.

Read: Proverbs 10 22

I may have mentioned Sydney Broughton before in these daily reflections of words to the wise and maybe not so wise. In any event, this man deserves more than one mention, because his influence during the ninety five years of his life here on earth was incredibly impacting, to say the least.

I mention him here because he used to send all my four children a card on their birthdays and did so right into their adult lives until he went to be with the Lord. Inevitably he would include the verse from Genesis 12 where God says to Abraham, “In blessing I will bless you and in multiplying will multiply you.” His intention in quoting this verse was to convey to my offspring that there was nothing better than having the blessing of God on your life.

Syd lived in a working class suburb in the city Kingston-upon-Hull in his little terraced house, which was by my standards , very modestly if not frugally furnished His mode of transport was a bicycle right up to two weeks before he went to his reward in heaven but I never heard him ever complain about what seemed to be his meagre lot in life.

As far as he was concerned, God’s blessing was his greatest wealth, and his memory serves as testimony to that fact that he was indeed fabulously rich.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
STRENGTH

Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved – Mattie Stepanek

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength – Arnold Scharzenegger

Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle – Napoleon Hill

A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles – Chrstopher Reeve

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE

THE BLESSING OF GOD – Genesis 9: 1-7; Job 42

It is good to read of the action of God following the sacrifice that Noah had made to the Lord. Having been blessed by Noah’s spiritual response to the salvation from the Flood, the Lord makes a positive move towards him and his offspring with the design and expression of blessing – v1. From His words it is possible to discover that He wanted their prosperity, satisfaction and success in every way. It was to be a new beginning with an order of blessing to superintend life.

God brings us through enormous crises and difficulties with the intention that He might bestow yet greater things upon our lives. He desires that our future, following things that have been difficult to handle, be crowned with His goodness. There are always fresh chapters to be written in our experience that will reflect the grander movements of the Lord in our affairs. Begin to expect a sudden and dramatic change in your situation because of His plan to bless.

Following the turning of Job’s captivity from sickness and pain, there came a fresh demonstration of God’s bounty in blessing. It affirms in v12 “The Lord blessed the latter end of Job than his beginning.” The commencement was good, but the climax was greater. It can be the same for you, too, as you hold true to God, He will remain loyal to you to the end with untold blessing – see Psalm 23: 6.
