An Ancient Living Yew Tree With A Difference

I had the great privilege to be in the company of an ancient living Yew tree. It is reputed to be around 700 years old at least. As I stood next to it in complete awe, I thought of the significance of touching something alive that was so old & it brought tears to my eyes. It was certainly a WOW moment. I mean this tree had survived and continues to thrive, how amazing.

Even more amazing is it is believed that John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Church had preached from this tree! As a young girl I attended Sunday School at a Methodist church. You see this tree is unique as it has a pulpit built into it.

What a truly special tree it is & no doubt I will visit it often now that I have found it. It is in the tiny village of Nanyglyn in Denbighshire, North Wales, UK. Just by the church there is a bridge with a beautiful river & a bench where I sat for ages & listened to the birdsong.

Here is the little video I filmed of the Ancient Yew Tree with a pulpit built into it.

Jesus DID NOT Die On The Cross To Save Saints~ He Died To Save Us

You are lost in a dark forest at night, full of wild animals, and you do not know how to get out. You see a light ahead, and it appears to be a parked car with a man outside. You choose not to go near the man. Would you be right to blame the man anyway for not giving you directions?

When you move toward the light, doesn’t the light get brighter? In a similar way, if someone is searching for the truth about God but doesn’t know about Jesus, God desires to give them more light when they respond to the light that they have received. Ultimately God will do whatever it takes to try to reach us because He loves us so dearly and desires a relationship with us, as 2 Peter 3:9 shows.

While the previous illustration is OK, for some there is a more appropriate illustration.

A person is lost in a dark forest at night, full of wild animals. He sees a light ahead, which is a parked car with a man outside. He sneaks up on the man, kills him, burns the map, and then says he is doing the best he can because he knows no other way. He is telling the truth, since he burned the map. Today, about 2 billion people, and perhaps the majority of non-Christians, live in countries and cultures that have killed countless Christian witnesses. If someone approves of killing of Christians, how many more missionaries do you think God is obligated to send them?
But the good news for them is that God still keeps sending some missionaries, because He loves those lost people, even enough to sacrifice the lives of some of His missionaries.

When Jesus said “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” Matthew 11:28 He was talking to you, today, in this chaotic world of greed and hate. He knows you already, He knows you better than you know yourself and He loves you, He’s never stopped loving you. The harsh lessons and losses were to mould you into the person He wants you to be. Trust in Him ~Su x

Wishing everyone a lovely day. Blessed be x

CHANGE ~ Tracy Chapman ( I Hate War…..BUT Imagine If………..)

Thank The Lord for our brave soldiers who give their lives to protect us from THE ENEMY.

BUT there is a problem here in The West. Our enemy sits at the desks of our own leaders, with The Illuminati pulling their strings, not in some remote cave out in Afghanistan or Iraq (Formerly Babylon) They are not our enemy. The war on TERROR never existed until The West (Us) decided way before you or I were born that they wanted complete control of the planet and every single living thing on it. See, herein lies the problem, for them at least, the creator is far more powerful than any mere human, please think about life itself, the workings and intricacies of every living thing on planet earth ~ NOW THAT IS POWER and He’s coming back to save ALL those who believe in Him. Amen. Su x

20140803-010004-3604990.jpgOne evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a debate that goes on inside people. He said,”My son, the battle between two wolves is inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

The grandson thought about this for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Wisdom and truth are found everywhere that there is a genuinely good human, Su x

Imagine if……….all the soldiers turned and pointed their weapons at the real terrorists and said, no more war, no more hatred, we the people of planet earth choose the way of peace, love and tolerance now go away ( that was the polite version of the thoughts in my head) How amazing would that be because I truly do believe if people were left to it humanity would be a better place than it is today over time. What happened to us folks, they got to us and dumbed down the human spirit. Now let’s see is X Factor on TV?

Amazing Bible Facts

The Bible has so many amazing facts. Here is a list of ten of them.
1 – The Writing of the Bible
The Bible was written over a 1600 year period by approximately 40 men. The time of the writing was from 1500 BC to AD 100.
2 – The Divisions of the Bible
While the Bible is 1 book, it contain 66 smaller books. The books of the Old Testament were written before the birth of Jesus Christ and the New Testament covers the life of Christ and beyond.
3 – Chapters and Verses
Each of the books, except 5, are divided into chapters and verses. The 5 which aren’t divided by chapters are Obadiah, Philemon, 2 John, 3 John, and Jude. These are short books which only have verse divisions.
Chapters were introduced to the Bible in 1238 by Cardinal Hugo de S. Caro. Verse divisions were not added until 1551 by Robertus Stephanus.
4 – The Longest and Shortest of the Bible
The longest chapter if the Bible is Psalm 119 with 176 verses. The shortest chapter is Psalm 117 with only 2 verses. Incidentally, the middle chapter of the Bible is Psalm 118. also Psalm 117.
The longest book of the Bible is Psalms with 150 chapters, or psalms. It contains 43,743 words. The shortest book is 3 John with only 1 chapter and 299 words.
The longest verse in the Bible is Esther 8:9 with 90 words. The shortest verse is John 11:35 with only 2 words, “Jesus wept.”
5 – The Bible Claims to be God’s Word
There are many books written about and by various religions. But the Bible is the only one which claims to be the actual words of God. Those who believe the Bible also believe that God inspired various people through the years to write down His actual words for mankind. The Bible says more than 3,000 times “thus saith the Lord.” It claims that the words which follow are quotes from God.
6 – The Bible is Historically Accurate
There were several secular historians who wrote about the events of the New Testament at the same time the Bible was being written. Josephus is the most well-known of them. He was a Jewish historian. Tacitus was a Roman historian who would have no benefit from not telling the truth. Both these men, as well as others, can be used to back up the historical accuracy of the Bible.
There are historical discoveries regularly coming to light that continue to support the accuracy of the Bible. Merrill Unger, who compiled a Bible dictionary wrote, “Old Testament archeology has rediscovered whole nations, resurrected important peoples, and in a most astonishing manner filled in historical gaps, adding immeasurably to the knowledge of Biblical backgrounds.”
7 – The Business of the Bible
There are more than 168,000 Bibles either sold or given away per day in the United States according to the Gideons, Wycliffe International and the International Bible Societies.
Historically it has been said that the Bible is the most sold book of all time. It is regularly on various best seller lists.
The Bible has been translated into more than 1,200 languages.
8 – The Bible Never Contradicts Itself
There are no contradictions in the Bible. Various people claim to find contradictions but they have to take verses out of context to do so. When looking at the Bible as a whole and understanding its teachings there are no contradictions. This is amazing when one considers that the Bible was written over such a long period of time.
9 – The Prophecies of the Bible
There are more than 3,200 verses with fulfilled prophecy either within the Bible itself or since the Bible was written. But there are still more than 3,100 verses with unfulfilled prophecies.
10 – The Writers of the Bible
While there were at least 40 different people who wrote parts of the Bible, some were more prolific than others. The Apostle Paul wrote at least 13 books of the Bible. He may have also been the author of the book of Hebrews. Moses wrote the first 5 books.
The Bible attributes more than 3,000 proverbs to King Solomon. These are not all written in the book of Proverbs. However, most of that book is said to be the proverbs of Solomon.

Do you know of any other book written by so many different folks on different continents spanning so many years? Me neither, and have you checked out the Biblical prophecies written in this amazing book that are coming true? It’s beautifully accurate beyond doubt now. We ARE living in End Times no doubt about that. There are some mind blowing videos on YouTube confirming all this. Heaven or Hell are just a thin veil away, choose wisely, your loving Father is waiting to hear from you right now with his ever loving open arms. “Come to me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” Matthew 11:28 Su x

The Hourglass

Just thought I’d reblog a few old posts. Su x

An_Hourglass____by_MPtribe

Consider the hour-glass; there is nothing to be accomplished by rattling or shaking; you have to wait patiently until the sand, grain by grain, has run from one funnel into the other.

“Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives…..”

Yes, I see the hourglass, often race against it.

Most days it’s as if my feet hit the floor and someone, (I’m not sure who) turns that hourglass over and the race is on, just to get through the day. It’s like a bad board game.

If  I’m honest, (and I do try to be) I don’t always notice the ‘ grains of sand’ that make up that hourglass. The hourglass of my life. I live my life often missing the grains of sand that when added together become the beautiful beach of my life. I am treating it as a timer rather than noticing all…
