God is in control
The Lord’s blessings to you all.
There’s a lot of talk about the middle east conflict, it has been going on for centuries brought on by
disobedience. Judges 2 v1-4 & 6 v 8-10 (Jesus angel of the Lord) Genesis 16 v 7, led them, fought
for them, fed and clothed them and they turned their backs on him.Numbers 33 v 55, they did not
drive out the inhabitants of the land, the land belongs to God and now they are barbs in their eyes
and thorns in their flesh. God has always taken the initiative, things happen because He chooses,
no-one can force His hand, He is in the arena of history, fighting for His loved one’s God never
speaks simply to convey information but to achieve results. He spoke and it happened, He
commanded and it came to being. Psalm 53 v 39 & Isaiah 55 v 11 the word of the prophet is a
statement of God’s intention combined with a demand for man’s cooperation.
Amos 3 v 7 & Genesis 18 v 17 surely the Lord God does nothing without revealing His secret plan
to His servant. Revelation 16 v16-21 God’s kingdom most certainly will come and His Will, will be
done. His plan from the beginning Isaiah 9 v 6.
Do not let your heart be troubled and do not worry about what is happening in our world today
because our Father God is in control and nothing can thwart His purpose.
Look to the great white throne and the Lord Jesus Christ who has conquered death and hell, make
no mistake the Lord will minister true justice and punishment to fit the crime.
As a nation we ought to be mindful and watchful as watchmen on the wall.
Please read 1Peter 1 v3-9 for comfort.
Have a blessed season

O Come Let Us Adore Him
(Definition) Adoration is often defined as praising God for who God is. In adoration, the Triune God:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit is the object of our worship and exaltation. We praise the very nature
of God, reminding ourselves that the Father is the most holy, almighty creator of the universe.
The carol sung at this time of the year, O come all ye faithful has the refrain ”O come let us adore
Him Christ the Lord”. This surely is what we believers are called to do every day to adore our dear
Lord. Having come to our earth for thirty three years Jesus understands our concerns and He was
offered up on the cross to take our sins away to give us eternal life with Him.

That is the greatest gift of all! Whether we celebrate Christmas or not we can surely rejoice that we
have a Triune God who loves us.
May the Lord grant you His grace and peace.

Trusting God
We have just finished reading the book of Daniel. In this we are told of three young men who stood
up for what they believed in, by refusing to worship a false God. King Nebuchadnezzar, at the time,
then orders that they be thrown into a fiery furnace to die. Because of their faithfulness, they
survived unharmed.
King Nebuchadnezzar’s reaction to this was “Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach and
Abed-nego. (14-26). In this we see the right way to hold on to our faith and beliefs, trusting God
with the outcome. God may miraculously preserve our lives, or he may not.
But this must not change how we respond to anyone who tests our faith.
God Bless Dave & Lin
Have a happy and blessed Christmas

My eyes have seen your salvation
Luke 2 25-32, And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man
was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him.And it
had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the
Lord’s Christ. So he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when the parents brought in the Child
Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the law, he took Him up in his arms and blessed
God and said: “Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace, According to
Your word; For my eyes have seen Your salvation Which You have prepared before the face of all
peoples, A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel.”
Simeon had a very unique promise in that he was told by the Lord he would not leave this world
without witnessing the advent of the Messiah coming in the flesh. God was faithful to his word. We
may not have been party to that blessed world changing event but we can say each of us who
know the Lord’s calling that we have seen the salvation of the Lord in our lives.
1 Peter 1: 8 says;’ whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing,
you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory’,
We await a time when we shall see him as he is.
One day we will see Him: 1 John 3: 2 ‘Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet
been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him,
for we shall see Him as He is’.
At Christmas we remember when the king of kings entered our fallen world to show us the way
back to God and to save us. He so loved us that he laid his life down and took our punishment. He
has defeated sin, the devil and laid up for us the gift of life.
Our journey in this world may take different twists and turns but through it all God will keep us in
his love and receive all of those who have placed their hope in Jesus.
Praise God
We pray the our newsletters give hope and comfort in these difficult times.
May the Lord bless and keep you in His care.
