Welcome – 20 September 2020

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of
things not seen.
And without faith it is impossible to please him

We know God desires faith from us. But not faith about getting things
we can see and feel now, like health, wealth, relief. God is not
pleased with such faith.

Abraham and every other saint died ‘without receiving what was
promised’, but God commended tham because of their faith. They
believed that even though life could be defeating until death, Christ
defeated death itself. That faith is true faith. When they died, God
welcomed them from a horrific world into a Heavenly Kingdom.

Have Faith! Remember the Kingdom, Eternal Glory, the Prize for which
Christ died and to which you are saved!

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19

Godless philosophies have for years been encroaching on nations that were founded, however imperfectly, on Christianity. Now, chaos is engulfing families and society, while law enforcement favours rather than restrains sin. Broken lives and despair abound: but God’s law cannot be broken, and He is not sleeping.

The misery is a necessary outcome of the sin, and the conditions provide excellent opportunity for the exercise and growth of faith.

Our songs of joy, our answered prayer, our sharing of faith are more than sufficient as we wait on God’s moving, in wrath against the sin, in mercy for those He has set apart for ultimate victory. He is certainly doing a new thing…

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19

For the whole the 20th Century and until now, Godless philosophies have been encroaching on nations that were founded, however imperfectly, on Christianity. As a result, chaos is engulfing families and society, and law enforcement is increasingly protective of, and even fosters the wrong of, the sinner. Broken lives and despair abound

Welcome 30 August 2020

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

1Pe 1:3-5

Greetings brothers and sisters.  Nicodemus struggled to understand what it meant to be born again (John 3:4), and so have many people since.  But we rejoice in the fact that through His mercy, we have been born again. We hold on to this and the promise of an inheritance beyond our current understanding.  Not only do we hold onto these promises, but we can rejoice in them too, even during the trials of COVID-19.  Hallelujah – what an awesome God
we serve!

Blessings,

Mark
