It has been estimated that there are over 1,800 prophecies of some nature in the Bible. Prophecy makes up about 20% of the Bible. Amazingly, the majority of these prophecies have come true, and the remainder are predictions of events in the future.
In the Bible God claims to predict the future. In the book of Isaiah God says “The former things I declared of old; they went out from my mouth, and I announced them; then suddenly I did them, and they came to pass.” (Isaiah 48:3)
We read all kinds of prophecies regarding individuals—that Abraham would have a son. Did he? In his latter years. That there would be rulers like Cyrus of Persia. 100 years before Cyrus assumed the throne, his name in Isaiah 45 verse 1 is recorded. Would you like to predict who the Prime Minister of Australia will be 100 years from today? It’s impossible. But here is the Bible giving name and country of these rulers long before they’re even born and come onto the scene.
You are invited to come and hear some of the amazing evidence of Bible Prophecies that have been accurately fulfilled – evidences that the Bible is True.
This week sees us all getting used to living at Alert Level 4. For this to work, we must all stick to the plan.
Stay home. It WILL save lives.
Let’s all remember why we are taking such extreme measures.
Staying home won’t always be easy. But the evidence tells us this is the best way to save the lives of other New Zealanders.
Finding our routines
It will take some time to build up new daily routines. That’s to be expected. We all need to be gentle with ourselves, and accept that things could be difficult for a while as we learn to adjust.
Looking after ourselves and others
Don’t forget to take time to look after yourself, and also to check-in on others. Asking someone how they are feeling is a good way to connect and show that you care.
We all need to stick to the plan
For this to work, and the effort we are all making to be worth it, we all need to stick to the plan, all the time. No exceptions.
Don’t move around
The virus is spread by us. So we all need to avoid moving around as much as possible. If you do go out for exercise or to get essential supplies, stay local. This is incredibly important. Don’t move between different areas.
Thank you for doing your bit
A massive thank you to everyone for working so hard to slow the spread of COVID-19. Together, we can and will save lives.

The staff at Textile Cleaning Services would like to thank you, our valued customers, for your support and hope you all keep safe over the next month.
We will be temporarily closing over this lock-down period, however you can still contact us through our website or by email to make a booking and we will service your requirements as soon as we re-open.
With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...
We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.
New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.
Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.
