He will Feed Me, He will Clothe Me, He will keep me. Cody Kereopa 24/09/2023 Matthew 6: 24 – 34 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what…
The prohibition of truth began in the Garden and extends to this very day. From the murder of the prophets, to the crucifixion of Christ, the feeding of Christians to the lions in Rome, to the Roman Catholic barbaric inquisition that lasted as long as three centuries in Europe. The horror stories of history, even to this very day, testify that TRUTH IS PROHIBITED and attended to often by the silencing of life from the testifiers of truth. There is no place for the Word of God in this world, other than to those who believe. Little wonder there is such passionate attack on the Bible.
We live today in difficult times the world over. This time in history is unique in so much that all people are struggling with fears about what tomorrow will bring. Yet in the midst of troubled waters he walked on water. Who? Peter! But when his focus turned from Christ to the trouble that surrounded him he began to sink.

3. Be Not Deceived It is where we consider the signs that we are told will be evident in the last days, and ask ourselves which of them are applicable for today.

Israel is our God’s Time Clock, this seems evident as we consider the Bible and all that it teaches concerning the future, especially in the light of Israel’s future. Watching Israel is watching the Bible being fulfilled in these last days.
We are living in the most incredible time in history. A time that is filled with confusion for many, but a time that’s well understood by some. To many, these days seem like everything is falling apart, but to some there is the clear recognition that everything is coming together. The Bible speaks of the last days with such clarity that it is shocking for many, and these days demonstrate the most incredible convergence of events ever seen, demonstrating with all certainty that we are living in the Times of The Signs spoken of by Jesus and the balance of the Bible. Please join me as I go through a number of those signs, and discern for yourself where we are on the prophetic timetable.
How do we quanitfy the value of the work we are charged to do for the lost people of the world? It is near impossible to consider the concept of eternity.
The greatest joy of all is having the rest and comfort of Christ during times of fear and concern. “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” says the Lord. Here we have a Place of Rest, an appointed people suited to the rest offered, and exchange of burden and a rest for the soul. What a blessing the Bible is, and what hope we have.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6 If your desire is for righteousness [particularly if it is a response to the realization of your own sinfulness] then God WILL satisfy that desire. We know this because his word tells us that he has already provided the means for that desire to be fulfilled.
