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 overcomes, I will give to him to sit down with me on my throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father on his throne” – Rev 3:21.

The atonement that we have in Christ is absolutely amazing! When Jesus died on the cross, He exchanged His life for our life, so that His Father could become our Father (John 20:17). In today’s promise, we read that Jesus tells the church at Laodicea… That those who overcome will sit with Him on His throne just as He sits with Father on His Father’s throne.

In Ephesians 2:6, the Amplified Bible actually tells us that our God and Father has given us joint seating with Jesus… And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One). (AMP)

May the Holy Spirit give us eyes to see and ears to hear what the Spirit is saying in today’s promise. May we know the height and depth of our glorious inheritance in Jesus Christ and the many promises that are ours because of His sacrifice for us. One day, we will sit with Jesus on His throne. Hallelujah! What a day that will be!

WISDOM THAT WORKS
OUT OF SIGHT – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Many beg favours from man who is generous; everyone is his friend! A poor mans own brothers run away from him in embarrassment; how much more his friends! He calls after them, but they are gone”.  Read: Proverbs 19:6-7

It is a sad commentary on human behaviour, but nevertheless true, that when everything is going well for you it is amazing how many people want to jump on your bandwagon.

It is also a fact, that in the highest levels of government, people are employed solely to put out press releases designed to put the best possible ‘spin’ on anything that might create an adverse response from the opposition. Is it any wonder they are called ‘Spin Doctors’!

On an individual level, we may not be able to hide or cover up difficult or adverse circumstances that may come our way. We also stand the risk of losing the support of those who were happy to stand with us when things were going well for us.

Unfortunately there will always be the performance driven crowd ready to jump ship when a change of circumstances are not able to bring the returns they expect, not to mention the potential embarrassment we might bring to them.

Forget going to these characters for any help or financial assistance when you are in difficult circumstances. As far as they are concerned it’s “Out of sight, out of mind”.

CHOICE QUOTATIONS
ALONE

Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work – A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

It is far better to be alone, than to be in bad company – George Washington

Pray that your loneliness may spur you into finding something to live for, great enough to die for – Dag Hammarskjold

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much – Helen Keller

DAILY MEDITATIONS
TAKING TERRITORY – Joshua 11: 10-23

From this overwhelming experience of victory Joshua moves on to a mighty offensive that sees Israel in a victorious role. Seven major cities and all the localities are taken in a swift swoop and onslaught. Nothing and no one could deter their progress as they marched relentlessly forward with their God. There was a powerful inspiration present that imbued them with a faith and conviction that the land was there for the taking. So with real courage and vigour they were to see their enemies defeated in a rapid way. What had seemed gigantic and problematic before was faced. It was their time to succeed and become possessors.

In the taking of such a vast territory we are informed as to the true reason for the conquest in v42 – “And all these kings and their land did Joshua take at one time, because the Lord God of Israel fought for Israel.” Herein is the secret for the great conquest. The answer to why they made tremendous inroads and toppled the opposition was due to this one fact – the Lord was with them and directing operations. When David confronted Goliath, he declared that the issue was beyond doubt because he came against him “in the Name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied” – 1 Samuel 17: 45.

We are in the Kingdom of Christ and this being so, we have to wage war and take territory in and through His wisdom, strength and power. Ours is a spiritual warfare against the powers of evil and darkness and they hold territory in peoples lives. It is our calling to take this people for Christ and see them coming under His rule and government. As we are indwelt and inspired by Him so it will come to pass.
