A Gift That Inspired

By Pastor Alan Cameron, Honorary Assistant

Some weeks ago my granddaughter Kaleigh, aged seven years old, entered my hospital room with a poster she had made for me. I was shocked. What was in the poster was most interesting. It was a house, one door, and five windows. Beside the house was the text: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5) So then in this poster we have a house and a text. The house could represent where I live or am situated now. This text speaks about the future which is unknown to everybody. Continue reading

Hope for the Future

By Pastor Alan Cameron, Honorary Assistant

“Where is this old world going?” is what is on the minds of many people these days. It would seem that things are going from bad to worse. We hear of wars and rumours of wars. Famines, earthquakes, corruption… there’s trouble everywhere and it is all there before us. So people are becoming discouraged and cynical about life!

I am so glad I have the opportunity of saying we have a message of hope, and that hope is centered in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. He came once 2,000 years ago, and He is yet to come a second time at the end of this age. Continue reading

Pastor Tony’s Sermon | October 21, 2012

Have a listen to Pastor Tony’s sermon on Isaiah 53, Psalm 91 and Mark 10 from October 21, 2012. Scripture passages referred to can be found below.

Isaiah 53:4-12

Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.

Psalm 72 – The Messiah’s Reign

A Psalm of Solomon

Give the king Your judgments, O God,
And Your righteousness to the king’s Son.
He will judge Your people with righteousness,
And Your poor with justice.
The mountains will bring peace to the people,
And the little hills, by righteousness.
He will bring justice to the poor of the people;
He will save the children of the needy,
And will break in pieces the oppressor.

They shall fear You
As long as the sun and moon endure,
Throughout all generations.
He shall come down like rain upon the grass before mowing,
Like showers that water the earth.
In His days the righteous shall flourish,
And abundance of peace,
Until the moon is no more.

He shall have dominion also from sea to sea,
And from the River to the ends of the earth.
Those who dwell in the wilderness will bow before Him,
And His enemies will lick the dust.
The kings of Tarshish and of the isles
Will bring presents;
The kings of Sheba and Seba
Will offer gifts.
Yes, all kings shall fall down before Him;
All nations shall serve Him.

For He will deliver the needy when he cries,
The poor also, and him who has no helper.
He will spare the poor and needy,
And will save the souls of the needy.
He will redeem their life from oppression and violence;
And precious shall be their blood in His sight.

And He shall live;
And the gold of Sheba will be given to Him;
Prayer also will be made for Him continually,
And daily He shall be praised.

There will be an abundance of grain in the earth,
On the top of the mountains;
Its fruit shall wave like Lebanon;
And those of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.

His name shall endure forever;
His name shall continue as long as the sun.
And men shall be blessed in Him;
All nations shall call Him blessed.

Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel,
Who only does wondrous things!
And blessed be His glorious name forever!
And let the whole earth be filled with His glory.
Amen and Amen.

Psalm 67

An Invocation and a Doxology

God be merciful to us and bless us,
And cause His face to shine upon us,
That Your way may be known on earth,
Your salvation among all nations.

Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.
Oh, let the nations be glad and sing for joy!
For You shall judge the people righteously,
And govern the nations on earth.

Let the peoples praise You, O God;
Let all the peoples praise You.
Then the earth shall yield her increase;
God, our own God, shall bless us.
God shall bless us,
And all the ends of the earth shall fear Him.
