Hi! Welcome...

Choose Life Australia Some call me passionate – I suppose I am. What do I want? A safe place for our children here now and in the future. I want to hold high the intrinsic value of all human life in all states of dependency. I want to defend liberty of conscience, freedom of speech and I want to see ethical government. I want to see truth honoured and spoken. There’s more but that’ll do…

A timely reassurance for 2019

A timely reassurance for 2019 (written to a “prayer warrior” with 247 embedded in email).

Yes, I love your email address. Obviously, 247 must refer to Psalm 24:7 St George’s Edinburgh sung in the grand style

Lift up your heads, you gates;
be lifted up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
the Lord mighty in battle.

But then there’s also!

Matthew 24:7 New International Version (NIV)

Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

WE ARE WARNED

Joshua 24:7 New International Version (NIV)

But they cried to the Lord for help, and he put darkness between you and the Egyptians;

WE ARE DIVINELY PROTECTED

Exodus 24:7 New International Version (NIV)

Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it to the people. They responded, “We will do everything the Lord has said; we will obey.”

RE-DEDICATION FOR NEW YEAR

Samuel 24:7 New International Version (NIV)

With these words David sharply rebuked his men and did not allow them to attack Saul. And Saul left the cave and went his way.

HONOUR IN THE BATTLE

Genesis 24:7 New International Version (NIV)

“The Lord, the God of heaven, who brought me out of my father’s household and my native land and who spoke to me and promised me on oath, saying, ‘To your offspring[a] I will give this land’—he will send his angel before you”

VICTORY IS CERTAIN

Jeremiah 24:7 New International Version (NIV)

I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.

THE LORD IS OUR GOD

Luke 24:7 New International Version (NIV)

‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’

JESUS IS OUR SAVIOUR

 

And then – although it’s not 247 – Luke 21:28

When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

So,

Lift up your heads, you gates;
be lifted up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
the Lord mighty in battle.

So, it’s a yes to 247 all day long! Pray, Praise, Celebrate!
