WELCOME TO THIS CHRISTIAN WEBSITE

 Welcome to this Christian Website which has now been going for a number of years. Over 135,000 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 God is the King of all the earth. Sing praises with understanding. 8 God reigns over the nations. God sits on his holy throne. 9 The princes of the peoples are gathered together, the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God. He is greatly exalted!” – Psalm 47:7-9

God is the King of all the earth. Jesus is proclaimed as the King of kings and the Lord of lords. There is no disputing the absolute and complete power of the living God. He is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. While our adversary the devil, has limited power for a short season as the prince of the power of the air, the earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it!

When everything around us seems to be shaken… Wars, economies, governments, etc., have no fear! God is seated in the heavens and He rules the earth. May we rise up and worship Him today for His goodness and His mercy and His majesty!

Hollywood often projects the battle of good versus evil as two equal, opposing forces clashing for victory. The truth is that our God is all powerful and ever present. He is so huge, that the universe cannot contain Him. We are not locked in a battle between good and evil that has an uncertain outcome. We win! Jesus has already declared the victory through His death and resurrection!

While we know that in this world we will have trouble, may each one of us be encouraged today in knowing that Jesus has overcome the world and that our Heavenly Dad is the God and Father over all creation (Ephesians 4:4-6).

WISDOM THAT WORKS

PARENT BASHERS – Rev. Bob Stevenson

“A man who mocks his father and mother shall have his eyes plucked out by ravens and eaten by vultures”.

Read: Proverbs 30: 17

We are exhorted to honour and respect our parents in more than one place in the Bible and not without good reason. Please understand me! I am not suggesting that all parents treat their offspring with the care and concern that society requires of them, not to mention what God requires. The sad fact is, that there are parents who are a disgrace to the title of Mum or Dad. For all that, it does nobody any favours, either parents or children, to have derisive and disrespectful comments made about them, even though such comments may be fully deserved.

Leaving the horror parents aside, most parents try to do their best to provide as secure and caring an environment as they possibly can. I well remember having a mental list of things I was never going to allow my children to do when they eventually came along. When however, they did arrive, I found some of the items on my list, were getting crossed off as the very behaviour I had censured in other people’s children became evident in my own.

Parent bashing, by their children especially, will have a serious knock on effect when your turn to be a parent arrives.

Sad as it seems, you could finish up with only birds of prey at your funeral and alas only have yourself to blame.

QUOTES TO NOTE – Nelson Mandela

It always seems impossible until its done.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

THE CITY OF GOD – Psalm 48

For the ancient Jewish people, there was no city to be compared to Jerusalem.  They were very pleased and proud about their major metropolis and for good reason as revealed in the psalm. It was above everything else the city of their God, Jehovah. That was the most important fact of all. The sanctuary of the LORD was there, and He dwelt in the city, and amongst its inhabitants, and the land and so gave it special significance and worth. It was beautifully situated and was well fortified and envied by other nations and peoples. The conviction that was sensed was that God would establish it forever – v8.

This Holy City is but a type of the Christian Church, a figure of the body of people that have been brought into the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. She is a well-constructed and beautiful community of people formed by God to be the dwelling place of the Lord God Almighty. He is ever present and resident and watches jealously over the well-being of those who comprise this marvellous populace. He is amongst this special and privilege folk to make sure that they are fully catered for under His administration. He is King in the midst and is to be greatly praised as the result of all of His commitment and rule. The Church of Christ is the most significant fact in the world in which we live and the Lord is principal resident in her to make His presence and glory known.

Each believer is an integral and spiritual member of this glorious spiritual city, so that means you are one of its inhabitants. It is essential that you get to know the King and learn to live under His benevolence and grace, being aware that He is looking continually after your interests. Be aware of the other folk within its boundaries and enjoy the rich fellowship of the community and give yourself to the well being of all and ever give glory to the LORD, the ruler of Zion.
