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

“For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and streams on the dry ground. I will pour my Spirit on your seed, and my blessing on your offspring – Isaiah 44:3

My wife and I live just a few minutes drive from Niagara Falls, Canada. I couldn’t think of a more appropriate photo to illustrate God’s promise to shower us with His blessings than the mighty Horseshoe Falls. When you are standing at its brink (like this photo), you get a real sense of the intensity of this majestic, roaring cascade of water that never seems to end.

So it is with God’s blessings over us and our children. In today’s promise, God says that He will water the thirsty and the dry ground and pour out His Spirit and His blessing upon our offspring. As a father of three adult children, I say yes and amen to this promise and pray that His Spirit and His blessings will be poured out on more generations to come!

God loves to bless His kids. When He created Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, He blessed them to be fruitful and multiply and have dominion throughout the earth. His heart hasn’t changed today. His desire is that our entire family would live under the fullness of all His blessings!

WISDOM THAT WORKS
RICHES AND REWARD
Rev. Bob Stevenson

”The evil man gets rich for a moment, but a good man’s reward fast forever. The good man finds life, the evil man, death”.

Read: Proverbs 11: 18-19

As soon as l read this proverb the words of Jesus came to mind when He spoke those observations about making for yourselves friends with the mammon of unrighteousness so when it fails they will receive you into everlasting habitations. (Luke 6:9).

You see, there is nothing wrong with riches, its what you do with them that counts. The money minded man can certainly enjoy all that wealth can bring in mere selfish terms, but when weighed against eternity it is only a momentary fling.

On the other hand if your wealth is intended to be a means of investment in Kingdom effort to those unreached with God’s good news, your reward is going to be eternal. In other words you will be able to evidence the results of your investments into people throughout the rest of eternity – Wow! What a reward that will be!

It stands to reason then, that those who have a heart to see lives transformed and changed through the releasing of their financial resources, will certainly find life as the proverb points out. But those who only live for the personal gratification money can bring can only have death at the end of it.
The big question is, where are you investing

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
THANKFUL

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it –
William Arthur Ward

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend – Melody Beattie
M
ake it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it – Ralph Marston

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough -Meister Eckhart

DAILY MEDITATIONS – A COURSE THROUGH THE BIBLE
STANDING IN THE GAP – Genesis 18: 17-33

The Lord decides to inform Abraham about the serious purpose of His mission. He is on His way to review the situation in Sodom and Gomorrah. What He knows is that they are exceedingly sinful and warrant divine judgement. This was a good move on the Lord’s part because it gave Abraham the opportunity to become involved as far as he could in the matter by prayer and intercession. The incident shows where the mind and heart of God’s servant was directed in the matter.

Two things of worth emerge: one, he was jealous for the nature of God as Judge in the affair, and two, that true justice would prevail. He knew by conviction that the Lord would only do what was right. There is a principle for us to grasp here. God always does what is absolutely true and fair by all of His creatures at all times and this applies to us. The Lord was expecting Abraham to do something; and he did. There was a real threat to Lot and his family and other possible righteous persons and so he begins to stand in the gap and plead for the saving of the people on the basis of the righteous. He asks ultimately to spare the city even if there were ten righteous individuals there. At least his prayer prevailed for Lot and his family!

We, too, need to emulate his example in these evil days that we may move in prayer for our family, friends, communities and nation. It is time to pray in this dark hour of evil. Spend some time today reflecting on the scene around you. Let the Lord reveal to you the actual condition of things in relation to the moral and spiritual state of the people. Apply yourself to intercession. Only prayer can deal with the floodgate of sin that has overtaken our community and land.
