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

“Surely goodness and loving kindness shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in Yahweh’s house forever” – Psalm 23:6

The Hebrew word for ‘follow’ in this Bible verse is pronounced ‘radaph’. It means to run after, chase, hunt, or pursue. It is a very descriptive word that King David chose when he declared how goodness and mercy would follow him all the days of his life.

Just picture goodness and mercy relentlessly hunting you down all the days of your life. Never stopping, never ceasing in their pursuit of you. This is the blessing that is the inheritance for every son and daughter of the Father of Lights. His goodness and His mercy will run after us, chase us and pursue us… all the days of our life!

May the reality of our Father’s love and the intensity in which He pursues us become more real today than it has ever been before. God loves you because He is love and He cannot help but love. His love for you is not conditional or based upon your performance

WISDOM THAT WORKS

ACCESSORIES TO THE FACT – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“To plan evil is as wrong as doing it. The rebel’s schemes are sinful and the mocker is the scourge of all mankind”.

Read: Proverbs 24: 8-9

In legal parlance an accessory to the fact of a crime is counted as guilty as the one actually committing the crime, be it before or after the event. Whether you collude in planning the misdemeanour or assist in the following cover-up so as to evade detection, both will be deemed guilty.

Investigative journalism, along with the institution of free speech and a free press, have enabled the common citizen to become privy to some of the behind the scenes plotting and planning which makes up our political machinery. We now refer to telling lies as “less than truthful” and the absolutes of right and wrong as the choice between the lesser of two evils. Whilst not wishing to appear naive or over simplistic in trying to understand some of the complex issues facing governments of any persuasion, it seems that a plain and simple YES or NO is a thing of the long last past.

 Jesus said Let your YES be yes and your NO be no”. Anything more than this stands risk of being labelled evil (See Matt 5:37)

Even in what may appear to be more minor issues of life, we need to be careful not to become accessories to the fact either before or after and thereby find ourselves as culpable as the culprit

A QUOTE TO NOTE – Abraham Lincoln

In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A BITTER STATE – Ruth 1: 19: 19-22

When Naomi returned to those who had formerly known her they raised a personal and disturbing question – “Is it really Naomi?” From it we can gather that there had been some radical change that had taken place in her presence and features that provoked such a query. They had seen her move out in a rather healthy and wholesome situation with her husband and family, but now, she had altered in her attitude and appearance. The past years had taken its toll with their bereavement and sorrow. The time away had lefts its mark on her face and walk. She reflected that she was far from her physical and spiritual optimum.

Her reply said it all: “Don’t call me Naomi,” (pleasant one) she told them. “Instead, call me Mara” (bitter)”. All she could think of was that everything had gone wrong since she had left. She left in a state of prosperity but had experienced untold adversity and loss. She felt the Lord had dealt bitterly with her. It is apparent that she was not in the best frame of mind and mood and must have felt some sense of embarrassment over her lot. This story is not only about Ruth but also about this woman, too; how God dealt with the bitterness of soul.

There are things of a bitter nature that can happen to us and the effect of such can be that we can become very sour. All that has gone wrong can impact the spirit, twist and sour it up so that life becomes unbearable. Job even expressed: “My complaint today is still a bitter one, and I try hard not to groan aloud” – 23: 1. He did find some relief and assurance in the conviction –v10 “But He knows where I am going. And when He has tested me like gold in the fire, He will pronounce me innocent.” The answer to be free from bitterness is to sweetly trust the Lord in spite of the problems.
