The Word:  To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal? Says the Holy One.

(Isaiah 40:26)

The Word:   When Sanballat the Horonite and Tobiah the Ammonite official heard about this, they were very much disturbed that someone had come to promote the welfare of the Israeli’s.

The Word:  If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; For so you will heap coals of fire on his head, and the Lord will reward you… Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls. (Proverbs 25:21,22 & 28)

The Word:   On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud shofar blast. Everyone in the camp trembled. Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain. Mount Sinai was covered with smoke, because the Lord descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, and the whole mountain trembled violently. As the sound of the shofar grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him.

The UK is reaping the fallout from the referendum and the General Election. Watchman reports on machinations in the corridors of power
