Recently we have read the story in the WHBC Daily about how the Ark of God was returned to Israel. Within this story is a remarkable man, Obed-Edom. The Ark was stored at his house and it had a life changing effect on him.

Greater is He that is in me

This weekend Colin Urquhart brought a couple of very powerful messages to us as a church and the one in the evening really resonated with what I have been thinking about, meditating on and praying through over the past couple of months. He was talking about being an overcomer and having the expectancy in prayer and faith not for a fight but for victory. One of the key verses that

The Secret Place

Recently I have been challenged to look at my personal time that I spend with the Father in the Secret Place; this is a separate time from my Bible Study, it is learning to sit and be still with my Father, just to be in His Presence, no agendas, no asking for anything, just to sit at His feet to know His presence, His Grace and Love, to Worship Him

A Perfect Fit

I recently had the opportunity to see how these beautiful glass bottles are made, and how the stoppers are fitted. Because they are unique, the stopper will only fit the particular glass bottle it is made for, and fits so well that you can turn it and lift the bottle up by the stopper

Encounter

Over the past couple of weeks, as part of WHBCdaily, we have been reading about Solomon and his time becoming King and then building the temple. Following on from a previous blog where I talked about how much things changed in one generation from war to peace, I want to pick up on this and focus on a significant event that happened in Solomon’s life. I have read these stories

Strong foundations

It’s been fascinating to see the builders work on the new building going up next to the Sanctuary. At the moment its coming on so fast, almost out of nowhere there is suddenly a huge structure, after months of them working on the ground, and below ground. Of course, I’m referring to having good foundations in our lives. Most Christians would have made that connection very quickly, and gone straight

Idol Health Check

Reading through our Bible Reading Plan in January I was taken by a verse in Samuel: So Samuel said to all the Israelites, “If you are returning to the Lord with all your hearts, then rid yourselves of the foreign gods and the Ashtoreths and commit yourselves to the Lord and serve him only, and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines. 1 Samuel 7:3 Plain

Memoirs of Dr Luke – the lessons I learned

He was a doctor, a writer, a traveller, and a historian, he is Doctor Luke. What do Zacchaeus, Zechariah, Elizabeth, Simeon and Anna all have in common? The book of Luke! Also, “what happens when a wealthy benefactor funds a costly and lengthy investigation by an educated medical doctor and historian of the life of the most important person in history”? So, the stage is set, God is ready, man is ready, and a book is published! Welcome to the book of Luke. I myself have carefully investigated all these accounts of what took place from the very beginning; and it seemed right for me to produce this accurate account for you, so that you may know that what you have been taught is correct and true. Luke 1:3-4 The

The Old and the New: a match made in heaven

As we read through the Old Testament I frequently find myself asking “How is this relevant to me today?” There are accounts of incredible cruelty and brutality as well as the establishment of the Tabernacle and the system of sacrifices. How does this fit with the God of infinite mercy who sent His only son to die for our sin? What do we learn about His character? Let’s look at God’s mercy. We could focus on the flood in Genesis 7 when all but 8 people were killed due to mankind’s sin. Or Exodus 32 when 3000 were killed when Israel made a golden calf. Or a little later in Israel’s history when Jerusalem was besieged by the Babylonians (2 Kings 25 among others). We have plenty to suggest that
