Long time coming, but I’ve got to tell you this…

Almost 11 weeks ago, I moved house, and county! No longer living in Norfolk, which I’d done since 1974, I moved just across the border to Suffolk, and a small town I’d never even heard of before looking for a new home. Long story shortened: I love it here in Brandon. The longer I’m here, the more in love with the place and the people I become.

And I’ve joined a church.

I talked about baptism with the pastor on the very first day I went there, and was baptised that very same afternoon. No hesitation. No silly excuses, just the sweet pastor and the whole congregation wanting to live completely under the banner of the truth of God’s word. They saw a spiritual need, and sorted it out that very day.

Well, you know what? That’s how things were done in Acts.

There’s loads more to this, but for now, I’m thankful to God Almighty for providing me with somewhere to go for my spiritual food and nurturing. Two services on a Sunday and another gathering every Wednesday. Just how it should be.

And the welcome I’ve received is second to none. So a prayer I prayed 8 years ago has seen its fulfilment completed, and I live just a few steps away from all my physical and spiritual needs. And people don’t believe in miracles?

Why not?

This is how it will happen…

Revelation 9

Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.

(verses 1-6)

Revelation 16…

Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the earth.” So the first went and poured out his bowl on the earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who had the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image.

(verses 1-2)

For those who love their healthcare – I hope you take notice of the above. Here’s what’s truly happening. And we wonder why?

The storm over Jeremy Hunt’s latest attack on the UK’s health service is loud and clear from the people. The government do not give a damn about us, or whether we live, or die. That’s fact. But there is a greater truth in the above Scriptures than anything Jeremy Hunt can, or will do.

God doesn’t HAVE to phase out healthcare. But we’ve all become so used to it that a little drama might get people’s attention. So we are losing it. And when these Scriptures happen, there will be nowhere to run. Not even a doctor, should there be any left alive, will be able to get support if they are not covered by the blood of the lamb.

It would be right for EVERYONE to repent.

NOW.

I don’t CARE if you don’t like it.

I do not care.

Repent.

NOW.

Thirteen Ways Goverment Budget Cuts Have Failed my Family (A Shortened Version)

Thank God there was once a proper health service. Those who worked in it saved my life, and my eyesight. Now, I’m old, it’s obviously time for me to look after myself, and be my own doctor. R.I.P – NHS. What a sorry shame we couldn’t protect YOU from harm when you need it most…

Mama Unexpected

It’s been in the news lately that my local county council are facing massive budget cuts and are failing SEN children. Was I shocked? Course not. Here’s a little list of some of the ways that budget cuts and “belt tightening” have personally affected my family so far in the last five years.

1) When I was in labour with Tilly, the unit was understaffed and so the midwife failed to spot that I was haemorrhaging heavily until my mum pointed out I was turning grey. I almost died in that labour room.
2) When Tilly was a few months old, my GP at the time told me she was “failing to thrive” but couldn’t refer me to anyone bar the growth paediatrician as the referrals would be rejected.
3) when Tilly was 10 months old my wonderful Health Visitor did her one year check early and sent off referrals…

Double Rainbow Meaning

Where I last lived, I always knew where to find the double rainbow after rain, or a storm. Now I’m in a new dwelling, I wanted to know where to find the rainbow last week. From the colour of the clouds, I knew there had to be one somewhere! I found it: To the right of my block of flats, over the house rooftops, there they were. Two of them. We never get one any more – always two!

Pure Glory

    by Hazel Straub

A double rainbow lit the darkened cloudy sky. God said, “Trust me through the storm, I have you. Don’t lean on your own understanding but lean into me, as the showers refresh. Embrace my wind, it blows the mosquitos away. Know my rainbow is a double one of covenant. They witness to my faithfulness. Trust me. I bring you through the storm. I am here for you.”

Video: Salt Lake City police arrest a nurse – for following hospital policy

It’s no better in England either.

The SKWAWKBOX

Caution: this is traumatic viewing.A police officer in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA wanted a nurse to take blood from an unconscious man – but the hospital’s policy said she could only do it with a warrant or if the patient was under arrest.

The police officer could have arrested the man to get around the rules – instead, he arrested the nurse, causing her and bystanders enormous distress:

Coming, as it does, just after a police officer retired rather than face disciplinary proceedings for telling a woman motorist not to worry because police only shoot black people, public confidence in the police over there must be falling like a stone.

Are the idiots in US law enforcement…

Church of England? God help us!

I’ve seen those words a few times now, over the past week: God help us.

What does that even mean to anybody any more? They cry God help us whilst walking in ever-increasing sin, and God has had enough.

Does a church think it can call itself such, and still ignore a great warning given 25 years ago? From what I’ve read earlier today, ignorance is ever deeper.

Tell me: does Romans 1 mean anything to anyone any more?
