The Christian Art of the Rev John Brown

I am in the process of creating paperback versions of all my kindle books.

Today it is the turn of The Christian Art of the Rev John Brown.

The Christian Art of the Rev John Brown (1722-1787) includes many coloured and black and white pictures/templates which were originally published in the Self-Interpreting Bible of the Rev John Brown in 1778.

All the pictures are beautiful and truly inspiring.

To order my new book, please go to:-

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1520795998

I know that you will be enthralled by the wonderful pictures, which first saw the light of day in The Self Interpreting Bible published by the Rev John Brown.

God Bless

Urgent Appeal for Priscilla

There is a little girl in India – Priscilla – who needs urgent life-saving surgery.

But India, sadly, has no free National Health Service like we do here in the UK.

The cost of Priscilla’s operation will be 63,000 Rupees (around £800) which is a large sum of money for my friends in the church in India who are desperately praying for her.

They are praying for a miracle and I am asking for your kind and generous support in making this miracle become a positive reality.

I will be donating all the profits from the sale of my recently published paperback book – ‘What Is Your Favourite Bible Verse?’ – for Priscilla’s life-saving operation.

All you have to do is to go to:-

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1520602545

The book only costs £9.95 which is a very small price to pay when you know that you will be preserving the life of this little child, Priscilla.

And, in addition, if your heart tells you that you would like to donate more money toward’s Priscilla’s operation then please go to my donation web page:-

All donations that we receive will be sent immediately to the Priscilla Fund Raising Committee in India.

Thank you, in advance, for all your wonderful love and support

God Bless

The Fire of God

Statistically, the number of people attending church each Sunday is seriously declining.

This may be the fault, in part, at least, of the Ministers, Deacons and lay preachers of every religious denomination but it cannot be denied that now that our Sabbath day (Sunday) is becoming less and less sacred and less and less holy, many people find an excuse not to go to church because, for example, they prefer to watch a football match!

We have allowed our churches to become empty because the world has taken its focus away from the Word of God and we are not being obedient to reading His word and teaching our children the ways of the Lord.

We need to be baptised by the Holy Spirit, so that we can worship in Spirit and in truth. The church fire has been dimmed and will go out if we do not take immediate action!

The fire of God needs to come down upon each one of us so that we can once again put God first in our lives. In Matthew 6:33 we read:-

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”

John Wesley (the founder of the Methodist Church) in the eighteenth century often preached at outdoor meetings when many thousands of people gathered to listen to what he had to day – and many of those people had walked miles and miles to get to the place where Wesley was preaching.

How many people would be prepared to walk 10+ miles to church every Sunday? Very few I would expect!

God will never leave, nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31: 6) but He is very disappointed when we ignore Him because we cannot find time to attend Church on Sunday and seldom talk to Him in prayer.

In my humble experience, God always listens to my prayers and, on many occasions, He will answer them in a positive way.

And I am sure that He will listen to your prayers too. You just need to set aside some time every day, no matter how busy you may be.

Praise be the Lord. Hallelujah.

Happy New Year to you all

God Bless

1 Samuel 1: 2

1 Samuel 1:2

This was Hannah’s prayer “How I rejoice in the Lord! How He has blessed me! Now I have an answer for my enemies. For the Lord has solved my problems”

She approached the Lord and cried out to Him. Hannah received from her Lord her heart’s desire. She was blessed.

Her heart could not contain her joy. Nothing else mattered or compared to her rejoicing in her Lord.

Her joy filled the depths of her soul. Unspeakable joy from an answered prayer. Victory over her enemies.

God had an answer for her situation. God has an answer for you.

Hannah had a sincere and loving heart. Her faithfulness and obedience were rewarded.

Hannah rejoiced and sang because she could give her son to the service of the Lord. She glorified God because He does great and mighty things for His people.

She made her sacrifice and then she sang out in her joy for what He had done.

Do you rejoice today for what He has done for you?

Prayer :

Glory, Glory to the Lord Most High.

Heavenly Father, you delight in granting the desires of my heart.

Thank you for the blessings that you have bestowed upon me.

In all circumstances I will give you praise for you are worthy of all my praise and worship. My Spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour.

Praise him! Praise Him! Hallelujah, Hallelujah. Mighty God, Glory to His name. Rejoice and be glad. All glory, praise and honour.

Amen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Be still and know that our Father God will always answer your prayers for thus it is written in Matthew 7 verse 7:-

Keep on asking and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will fins. Keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you.

God Bless

The Methodist Philatelic Society

I have just updated the Methodist Philatelic Society website:-

If you collect stamps – especially Methodist commemorative covers and/or Methodist postcards – you are very welcome to become a member.
 
Information about the Methodist Philatelic Society – and how to become a member – are to be found on the Society website.

The Girl With An Umbrella

As a drought continued for what seemed an eternity, a small community of farmers was in a quandary as to what to do. Rain was important to keep their crops healthy and sustain the way of life of the townspeople.

As the problem became more acute, a local pastor called a prayer meeting to ask for rain.
Many people arrived. The pastor greeted most of them as they filed in. As he walked to the front of the church to officially begin the meeting he noticed most people were chatting across the aisles and socializing with friends. When he reached the front his thoughts were on quieting the attendees and starting the meeting.

His eyes scanned the crowd as he asked for quiet. He noticed an eleven year-old girl sitting quietly in the front row. Her face was beaming with excitement. Next to her, poised and ready for use, was a bright red umbrella. The little girl’s beauty and innocence made the pastor smile as he realized how much faith she possessed. No one else in the congregation had brought an umbrella.

All came to pray for rain, but the little girl had come expecting God to answer … Yes wonder how many of us behave as the people or the little girl. So next time we pray to God friends, let us behave like the little girl, expecting an answer.

Remember ask n it shall be given, open your mouth wide n the Lord will fill it

With many prayerful blessings
