Easter Greetings
Easter greetings to you all, once again the season for sowing has arrived, in Numbers 11 we
read how the people complained and the Lord heard it and was displeased. Again the people were
not satisfied with heavenly food as they craved and lusted for the food from Egypt. They soon
forgot the slavery and brutal whip of their task master.
Not satisfied with the heavenly manna and the kindness of God. God’s manna’s colour was
like bdellium (bedo/lach) white frost on the ground considered as a precious stone,
Rev2:17 please read: Israel had lost what God was doing for them, setting them free, making a
new nation, new land protecting them, feeding them, they could only think of what He wasn’t doing
for them, only about food that then sowed dissatisfaction.
The manna white stone are a foreshadow of the Lord, what we sow is not made alive unless it
dies, it must have the right conditions in Cor 15:3 5 as Paul likens our resurrection, but growth in a
garden seed placed in the ground will not grow unless it dies, the plant that grows is very different
from the seed that was sown, because God gives it a new body (1Cor 15:42) please read, what
was sown in corruption raised incorrupt, sown in dishonour raised in glory, sown natural, raised
spiritual. We are in grafted wild olive branch into the true vine.
I grafted my own tomatoes from old disease resistant root stock, sown both together, when a
graft is taken you grow on your variety from perfect root stock. Jesus is the perfect root stock we
draw our goodness from Him, our lily of the valley is starting to grow in our garden and will fill the
garden, and we are the fragrance of Jesus to God who are being saved and among those who are
perishing. Question? What kind of seed are we sowing, do we complain, grumble, murmur about
the weather, against the bread from heaven? We must be careful because He will hear, let us sow
seed that will last for eternal life in our risen Lord Jesus Christ.
Every blessing in His name Mick.
How strange that souls whom Jesus feeds with manna from above,
Should grieve Him by their evil deeds and sin against His love.
But ’tis a greater marvel still that He from whom they stray,
Should bear with their rebellious will and wash their sins away.

Walking The Cross Witness
It is with great regret that we will not be able to carry out this witness this year for a number
of reasons. It has been an honour to serve the Lord in this way for many years and we hope to
continue in the future should circumstances and health allow.
Easter A Time For Reflection
Now springtime is here, we see nature renewing itself with fresh growth on the trees and new
life all around. With longer daylight hours and warmer weather to enjoy we give thanks. Father
God has set the seasons for us as He controls all things. It is good to marvel at creation and give
thanks to Father God for His generous supply as He sustains all things.
The greatest gift God has given to mankind was His only Son who was born at Bethlehem as a
man to identify Himself with us. As the scriptures say “Fully God and Fully Man”. Long ago in the
garden of Eden when Adam and Eve fell into sin by their disobedience we have suffered as
mankind with the sin nature and this has separated us from God. We needed a redeemer! Jesus
Christ truly is our redeemer as He took all our sin when He suffered and died on the cross.
Without His sacrifice we would be lost forever. Every Easter is a good time to reflect, have we by
His grace grown in our relationship with Him or are we drifting?
The miracle of Easter Sunday truly inspires as Jesus rose from the dead and is alive in Heaven
interceding for all who call Him as Lord and Saviour. There is one question we all need to answer
is Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour if not, why not?
May you have a blessed Easter. Roy

Trusting God
Proverbs 3 v 5 tells us to trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not on our own
‘Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths’.
Do we do this? Do we find it hard? God knows what he is doing.
Why we should trust him: –
He knows better than we do (James 1-6). All things are possible with God (Mark 9-23)
He is worthy of our trust, and wants the best for us.
Do read the story of Joseph and how he trusted God. Genesis chapters 37-50.
God Bless, Lindy.

The Ascension
Act 1:6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at
this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” Act 1:7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know
times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. Act 1:8 But you shall receive
power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem,
and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Act 1:9 Now when He had spoken
these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
Act 1:10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood
by them in white apparel, Act 1:11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into
heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner
as you saw Him go into heaven.” From NKJV.
Have a very happy and blessed Easter from the Team and Trustees.
