The height of summer brings wonderful sights,scents and colours into our flower gardens. Allotments are showing signs of vegetables and fruits for future use.
Our gardens can also mean so much more to us.They may evoke memories of those we have loved, of places visited or promises of things to come. We carefully nurture the last peony or hollyhock because we remember where each first bloomed and can reflect on happy times.We treasure plants given for special days or memories, but we also love the daisies that invade the lawn prior to overlooked mowing. In all these experiences there are moments of perfect peace and time for reflection and contemplation.
Scripture states the Most High rules in the kingdom of men [Daniel4:17] declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done [Isaiah 46:10], so we should expect its pages to reveal detailed foreknowledge of World Events, and this has proven to be the case - for example, Bible students as far back as Joseph Mede [1586-1639] and Sir Isaac Newton [1643-1727] wrote that the rebirth of the nation of Israel was foretold in the writings of the Hebrew prophets.
We believe that the Bible is God’s word, given to us as the key to real happiness, not just now, but for ever. It is the Word of Life: an invitation to everlasting life and citizenship of God’s future Kingdom on this earth.
To understand the Bible’s message and enjoy the benefits, we have to read it for ourselves, so the entire King James Version is built into this website, with a reading plan that works through the Bible in three short portions each day, completing the Old Testament once, and the New Testament twice, each year.
