After surviving this life to the age of 46, God decided that I had wasted enough time trying to do everything in my own strength and started showing me what this 'faith' thing was all about.
To bring you up to date...
Liz and I became Born Again Christians in 2009 and everything changed. I did a presentation a short while ago and part of it was my testimony. It covers visions, dreams, the marvel of God's provision and also His direct guidance.
Back in 2013 I began a personal Bible study as I somehow knew there was far more to Christianity than the preacher teachers were demonstrating. There was! Over the next 365 days I read, studied and listened to what God was saying. I wrote everything down and will have it typed up by the end of June 2015, which ties in nicely with our six year birthday of becoming Born Again.
I am amazed at what God has said. This is how He communicates with us. We read the Bible and he communicates with us immediately. This I know for sure!
The Standard | Christian Business Ministry
This is the first direct instruction from God; To develop a Ministry for Business Owners so that business people would begin to understand that God must come first before money. His provision is always enough, but if the business community keep focusing on making money, they will ultimately lose it.
This website illustrates our plan for reaching businesses through normal business channels as well as connecting through related websites. There are over 100 articles which cover many topics surrounding Christianity.
We also plan to organise a online Church service aimed specifically at business people. I'll keep you posted!
#Ask About Faith
The second instruction was to reclaim and grow his Church. Since 1960 'till now 5m people have stopped attending 50,000 Churches in the UK. That's nearly 2,000 people per week opt out and have been doing so every year for the past fifty years.
#Ask About Faith is setting up meetings in coffee shops on Sunday mornings to connect with people who want to ask simple or complicated questions about faith. We're not connected to a church, we have no other agenda except to help people understand what it says in the Bible so that they can apply it to their lives.
There needs to be a different approach to the question of faith to help people get a handle on it, and Jesus, so they won't want to simply "opt" out like they have been for the past fifty years.
