Our Pastor's Devotional - December 2019


Do you sometimes get the feeling your world is caving in. It seems everything you touch is falling apart. You feel, if there is a God, He’s doesn’t care about me, or He’s punishing me and I’m alone in the world!

Imagine how Job must have felt? He lost his business, his friends, his transport and finally his children, yet Job didn’t know why! When Job became ill, instead of sympathy from his wife, he was told to curse God and die. When 3 wise men, so called friends, by the names of Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar came, instead of offering comfort they tell him, he must have done something wrong and he was now suffering the displeasure, the wrath of God.

Today, we can look back at the story and see the whole picture. We can read how Satan was responsible for Job’s suffering, not God. Wouldn’t it be great, if we could see the whole story of our lives? Wouldn’t you like to make the right choices, go in the right direction? Satan accused God of putting a hedge around Job and that was the reason his life went well. God was told by Satan, if He removed the hedge, then we would see what Job was really like, but Satan was in for a shock! Job had put his trust in God and as a result he was able to say: Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.

In John 10:10, Jesus says, ‘The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.’ Jesus wants you and I to have an abundant life while here on earth and eternal life in the kingdom to come. Jesus just asks us to believe in Him and to follow His directions. Let Jesus into your life today, let Him draw close to you, as you study His word the Bible. As for Job? The scripture says: ‘So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning.’

God wants to bless your life, there may be trouble, but who is really behind it? God promises in Deuteronomy 31:6, He will neither fail you nor abandon you.

A welcome to visit Middlesbrough Church from Isabel.

Hello, my name is Isabel Dirahu and I go to the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Middlesbrough. I enjoy going to church because when you go you have lots of people keen to help you understand the Bible, you will find learning about God easy.

My church has lots of very different people, from across the world and different ages! There are teens, children, babies, adults and the elderly. The children in the church are a blessing, their compassion for God is endless, they sing for Him, tell stories about Him, and tell friends about Him and much more! Some children have been growing up in the church and have learnt brilliant things about our Saviour.

The teens are always up for Bible study and helping out, there are about six pre-teens and a few teens. It’s great to have an example for the kids of what they should believe in when they are older and some great singing teachers too!

The adults are a thrill to have in the church; they and the kids are like two peas in a pod! They always help when it comes to cooking, teaching and helping us to pray and read the Bible.

So I hope you will come to my church, because together with Christ we grow in faith and knowledge.

One of the fundamental beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is baptism by total immersion. This was a practise carried out by the early Christian believers in Britain but fell into disuse later. Our previous resident minister Pastor Peter Jeynes is a keen photographer and video maker. He has made a short film about an early outdoor baptistry that he found quite recently in the Pennines. To view this video requires RealPlayer, if this player is not on your computer it may be downloaded from this link.

The Middlesbrough Congregation now have their own church in Clive Road Middlesbrough. Previously we used the facilities of St. Barnabas Anglican Church. A Day of Fellowship was held there in September 2007 when five people were baptised by total immersion, the video may be viewed here.
