The Ark of Refuge

The Ark of Refuge
Just like God asked Noah to prepare, Christ has prepared a place of Safety. He is calling you to come into that place of safety.

Covenant
Noah was called by grace and declared righteous. God is faithful to His promises as only Noah and his household survived, while the whole world was destroyed.

Saving Grace
Christ is calling you to come under the covering of His blood. He has made atonement for your sin through His death on the Cross.

Give your life to Jesus Christ. He is the righteousness of God, that refuge, an ever present help in times of trouble.

Run to that place of Refuge in this time of grace. Salvation is by grace alone…

🙏The Sinners Prayer:
Do you want to get right with God?
The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, [Jesus Christ], that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” — a complete life full of purpose (John 10:10).

Pray today and acknowledge your sin before God. Ask God for forgiveness and ask Him to come into your life. Ask God to help you turn away from Sin and live a life pleasing to Him. Remind God of His Covenant through His Son Jesus Christ and the Power of His Blood. Thank Christ for dying for your sins and Praise Him. Amen

Christ is our Refuge

Do you recognise Christ? Written by Ruth Dickson.

Do you Recognise Christ?

Before Jesus Christ came to earth, many Prophets spoke about Him. The Prophet Isaiah spoke about the birth of a ruler who would be the Prince of Peace.

 Zechariah spoke in glorious terms of a coming King who would ride triumphantly into Israel. Many who read the scriptures and listened to the Prophets believed every account of this coming Messianic King.

Generations of people died in expectation of this Promise. Many died in faith, without seeing its fulfilment.

Jesus riding triumphantly into Jerusalem on a Donkey was the fulfilment of Prophecy. Multitudes swarmed around Jesus, waving branches of Palm trees with shouts of Hosanah. ( John 12:1-15). Among the crowds, were those who genuinely believed and others who just got excited, but did not truly believe. Even the disciples did not believe at first, until they remembered the things written about Christ in the scriptures (John 12:16). Jesus wept over the condition of their hearts. They did not recognise Him. Among those who rejoiced with Jesus and called Him King would be those who would later assemble to betray Him.

How many people read the scriptures, listen to sermons and display the external signs of being a follower of Jesus, but do not know Christ? They have no genuine faith in their hearts. They mingle with other Christians, however, with a heart of total unbelief.

Christ is coming again, just like the Bible has promised. Do you believe this? Do you have faith in Him? Christ is the King of the heart who truly examines the condition of it.

When Christ returns may He find lamps ablaze with hearts ready, expectantly waiting for Him ( Matthew 25:1-13) Amen.

Stand Firm and see the Salvation of the Lord. Written by Ruth Dickson.

Stand Firm and see the Salvation of the Lord.

Just like Judah and Jerusalem at the time of war, God is calling His people to – have faith – in Him.

These are challenging times, where Christians are facing battles on many fronts. The multitude of voices, in these times of uncertainty, is a battle in itself. Whose report will you believe? A house divided against itself will not stand. Stand firm. Trust in the Living God.

In the midst of a thousand voices, there is one voice that speaks the truth. It is the voice of the Living God.

“Have faith in Yahweh your God and you will be secure; have faith in His prophets and you will be successful.” 2 Chronicles 20:20

The battle is not yours, but God’s. Do not be afraid. Trust in the Living God.

The Vine Dresser by Ruth Dickson.

The Vinedresser

A Vine presents a beautiful picture because it has strong roots. A Vine is sturdy with many healthy branches attached to it. If any of the branches fall off, it soon withers and dies, only the branches that remain on the Vine remain strong and healthy. When a Vine becomes overgrown, unkempt and unruly, the Vinedresser will cut it back, so it can grow beautifully again.

The Pruning Instrument.
Christ can use any instrument in this world to prune you. Great trials, illness, misfortune, lack, imprisonment, bereavement… just to name a few. This may seem pretty harsh and really hard to understand or even accept, but you must remember, Romans 8:28 says,

And we know for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.”

The whole earth belongs to God and He will do whatever it takes to disentangle you from this sinful world and its worldliness. This is truly an act of God’s Love: the point is that the pruning instrument will drive you to search for God. Only good things can happen to the person who seeks a closer relationship with God. Strong roots in Christ can never wither.

Morning Prayers: Monday 16th Of December 2020

Morning Prayer:

This is the Season of Peace. Let us remember Our Lord Jesus Christ’s sorrowful passion towards those weak in faith.

🙏Let us pray for all who face complex situations and trials, they may not waiver in their faith.

Psalm 9:10 says,

And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

🙏Commit into the Lord’s hands anyone you know facing a trial in this season, remembering our gracious Lord’s sorrowful passion, in bearing our burdens, pain and sorrow upon His shoulders, and bringing peace to this earth.

🙏Let us pray for the faith of our leaders who trust in the Living God, that their faith will not fail in the time of trouble. James 1:3

🙏Pray for Christians who are wavering in their faith, to have complete confidence in the Living God. What will separate them from the love of God? Nothing. Romans 8:38-39.

🙏Pray for God’s sorrowful passion to be released over His people and the whole world in this dark hour. Many hearts are faint, as they watch and wait, for Christ’s return. Let us remind Almighty God, the Sovereign One, of His love and compassion for this world this dark hour. John 3:16.

Amen

EVENING PRAYERS: Thursday 12th December 2019

Evening Prayers:

Tonight, let us pray for the men, women, children and babies who suffer abuse.

Let us pray that God in His mercy and compassion will rescue people from all kinds of abuse…

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21

🙏Pray that God will open your eyes to the forms of abuse going on around you. In homes, in schools… where ever this abuse is taking place… may it be uncovered in Jesus name.

🙏Pray for children who are kidnapped, especially from African countries, and taken as slaves across borders into Arab countries, be rescued and restored by the power of God. Pray that God will expose the hidden trade slave routes that still exist.

🙏Pray for the mental health of workers who treat victims, and deal with cases of rape daily.

🙏Pray that God will hear the cries of those who pray daily to be rescued from impossible situations, that God will rescue and hide them from the reach and gaze of the enemy.

🙏Pray those with cases of historical abuse receive peace, healing and justice.

🙏Pray God will send His angels to earth, as He did in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. Pray God will act swiftly.

The Perfect King Written by Ruth Dickson

THE PERFECT KING

Welcome to the month of December as we celebrate the ONE sought by wise and learned men. Matthew speaks of the men who travelled all the way from the far East, to Jerusalem, in search of this King.

It was prophesied He would bring Justice and Peace on Earth. He would be the guardian of Justice, a mighty protector of the weak and the saviour of souls.

A TRUE KING

Matthew describes Him as a true King with a name that would last forever. To Him there would be no comparison, as Herod was a false imposter of a king.

Those who are truly wise run after; seek the audience; pursue the “True King”: our precious Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, to whom there is no comparison.

FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD

FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. James 2:17

To whom much is given, even much more is expected. Are you among those who do not recognise that the privileges you have are for God’s glory?

Privileges can be wasted, misused and abused when you are not spiritually minded. The carnal Christian is one who is constantly occupied with self.

Faith with no corresponding action, is not living faith, it is dead faith. It is like a tree which does not bear fruit, (described in Matthew 7:19), as a tree only fit to be cut down and thrown into the fire.

The Bible uses figurative speech when it talks about the tree that bears no fruit. In the natural, the person without the evidence of fruit is like this tree…

What does Christ say about this person? (Matthew 7:19).

Let us therefore come boldly before God’s throne of grace: pray for the mind of Christ. Pray that Christ will be a living reality in your life; He is the hope of glory. Christ has given us eternal life freely, He has paid the price, He has given us His all.

AN ESSENTIAL SACRIFICE

AN ESSENTIAL SACRIFICE 🔥

It was necessary for Christ to give His life.

He was lifted up for the world to see, He paid the price: a Living Sacrifice.

REDEMPTION

Christ The Mediator Redeemed us.

It was a finished work, freeing sinners, from the power and guilt of sin.

IT WAS EFFECTIVE

The 2 affects from Christ’s redemptive work are:

1.Justification and forgiveness of sin

2. Deliverance from the enslaving defilement and power of sin.

Christ shed His blood on behalf of many, redeeming them: purchasing them to Himself. You are no longer a slave to your past, but FREE IN CHRIST, a new creation, bought with the precious BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST.

HAVE A BLESSED GOOD FRIDAY.

The Mysteries of God

THE MYSTERIES OF GOD.

No entity compares to God Almighty. There is no joy that compares to the joy of those who know their God.

Those who know God wait for Him because they discern His promises. Discernment comes by the Spirit of God. He is the revealer of secrets.
