For such a time as this ( Day 26)

Bethel was a place of great promises and blessing being to Jacob. Later on, though things changed. The House of God became a Place of Rebellion against God. During the time of the kings, after Solomon was dead ( but before the time of Elijah & Elisha ), the ten tribes of the North rebelled against Rehoboam, the son of Solomon. Under the leadership of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat. In a bid to stop his people travelling far south to Jerusalem to worship at the temple, Jeroboam erected two golden calves as idols, which the people of Israel worshipped. He set up one in Dan in the far North, and one was set up in Bethel. 1 Kings 12: 32 shows how he also offered sacrifices to the golden calves and had pagan priests serve there. Continue reading

Psalm 27 The Lord is My Salvation

In such challenging days as these, we look for direction and help in God’s word. This morning we look at Psalm 27 where the Psalmist affirms his confidence and trust in God.

For David the Psalmist, The Lord is His focus in all His trials. The Lord is the one in whom he trusts. The Lord is His Confidence and assurance.  Continue reading
