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

“If we are faithless, he remains faithful. He can’t deny himself” – 2 Timothy 2: 13

This is an absolutely wonderful promise! What a picture of the love and kindness of God! Even when we struggle in our faith, He will remain faithful to us because we are part of Him and He can’t deny himself. The New Living Translation says … If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny who he is. (NLT)

The Bible says in 1 John 4:16 that God is love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 describes the attributes of love. God will remain faithful to us even when we are not faithful to Him because that is who He is. Love believes all things, hopes for the best, never gives up.  If you are struggling today with your faith, don’t give up because God won’t give up on you! He loves you with all His heart and He has promised to be faithful even in the times when you are not.

WISDOM THAT WORKS

SOUL DESTROYING – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“Keep away from angry and short-tempered men lest you learn to be like them and endanger your soul”.

Read: Proverbs 22:24-25

The human soul or spirit is a very sensitive capable of displaying incredible strength and fortitude. At the other end of the spectrum it is capable of being severely damaged and subdued. Have you ever heard anyone describe some horrible task they have been called on to fulfil as ‘soul destroying’.

Research has revealed that a need to have a change from the routine of their soul-destroying repetitious tasks so as to protect from emotional shut down In the same way if are exposed to a constant bombardment of outbursts or a short tempered explosive fuse, your spirit is going to be affected in a negative way.

The television is a powerful medium capable communicating all kinds of messages. In an to be so called realistic, outrageous behaviour finds its way into our homes Such behaviour has if making us believe it’s unfortunate capacity to influence the unguarded soul to the point for us to act like that.

Without the counter balance of the Word of God and the empowering of the Holy Spirit we can be left defenceless to such unwholesome behaviour Like the assembly line worker we too can reap the consequences of being negatively exposed.

Such exposure will eventually have its unwanted effects with its propensity to destroy our soul

A QUOTE TO NOTE – E Anderson

Faith is not simply having assurance but being animated, activated by it until it brings the extraordinary things into being and experience in your life – E. Anderson

DAILY MEDITATIONS

STRANGE PROCEDURES – Judges 7:16-25

It seemed a very strange method that Gideon adopted to go into the arena of conflict against such strength of numbers as seen in the host of the Midianites – 6: 5; 7:33. Who in their right natural state of mind would have resorted to the measures used by this leader to initiate a battle? The method employed looked ridiculous and mad and no one would have given it any hope of success in the circumstances. Fancy engaging trumpets, pitchers and lamps to start off a war! The Lord does use strange tactics at times but in them is huge success.

This was the way in this instance of going about to bring about the downfall and destruction of the enemy. Maybe it did not fit in with human reasoning but the Lord always had the right and successful procedure no matter what it entailed and Gideon was in on God’s plan.  It must have looked quite a threatening sight in the middle watch of the night to hear the trumpets blasting, the lights shining and hear the word shouted: “The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon” – v20. It was enough to create panic and mayhem and cause the enemy to flee.

How essential it is to be in tune with the Lord so that we are able to enforce victory in His way! He always communicates the ideas that work out perfectly so that the inevitable consequence is that He gets all the glory. Remember He has ways and means by which He can achieve the all important conquests in your life and work and you need to be aware of them and apply the same. He is able still to make known the methods and procedures by which your enemies can be routed and overcome. Your real success is dependent upon your total reliance on Him.
