Pastor's Desk:

Power for a New Beginning.

 

Our God is a God of new beginning, His ability to change any kind of circumstance is ever comforting, Noah spent 150 days in the ark (Genesis 8:1) but when God remembered him, it set him up for a new beginning. Similarly the children of Israel spent 70 years (Isaiah 43), in bondage in the land of Babylon (modern day, Iraq) and God brought them out of the bondage and started a new beginning. Another generation of the children of Israel were under Egyptian bondage for 430 years, but the Lord delivered them and they began newly (Exodus 12:2). I prophecy into your life that you will witness a new beginning of great and mighty things in your life, in Jesus name.

 

The whole chapter of Isaiah 43 summarises the past bondage of the children of Israel (under the Egyptian); their current bondage in the powerful Babylonian empire and the coming of a messiah Christ Jesus, their future deliverer and eventually saviour of the Gentiles. Meanwhile, it has been prophesised, that an unbeliever King Cyrus will be used by God to set the children of Israel free; So God used him for His glory and he even ordered that the temple of Jerusalem be rebuilt.

 

According to the book of Isaiah 43:18-19

Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

Let’s try and look into the keywords in these verses for a better understanding; a wilderness is often described as a land or place very difficult to live in; somewhere inhabitable by humans, only wild animals dwell in such a place. Also a desert is a place where it is difficult to find water. The proclamation in this verse is a strong message since the Lord proclaimed that He will make a way in your wilderness and rivers to flow in your desert. Hence it is only right to be rejoicing and thanking the Lord for such a wonderful testament of God’s power.....Continues here

 

JESUS IS LORD!

Weekly Devotion:

Conquering Word for the Week

 

Week 9: 1st March 2015.

 

Exodus 14:13-14 (KJV)

“And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you today: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace”.

 

Commentary:

It has been truly said that “man’s extremity is God’s opportunity”. The long-enslaved Israelites had at last been released from their bondage in Egypt, only to be pursued and trapped by Pharaoh and his powerful army. God, the omnipotent instructed them to do the hardest thing of all- stand still in faith, and let the Lord fight the battle. As you are in this type of situation, what you must remember is not to fight for yourself, but to be still and trust in the Lord, and you will see Him work mightily on your behalf as you go through this week in Jesus name.

Testimonies:

 

I am beholding the beauty of the Lord, surely God is in this house and I did not know. I just happen to move from Plymouth to ivy bridge and I was amazed and how God has been my provider once more, I was amazed more on how he opened my eyes to look at the things that he has done. He came in ordinary, he didn’t come in a mighty miracles. I really thank the Church especially people that supported me during my moving, God is awesome. It really moved me to the extent that I had promised God to visit each every one of you every Saturday.
