God’s Divine Appointments: The Supernatural Working Of God Through Everyday Events

May 5, 2022    Don Stewart
While it may seem odd to read a book that centers upon the stories of these three Old Testament characters, Joseph, Judah and Jonah, there are, at least, four very important reasons as to why their accounts in Scripture are so valuable to us today.

First, each of these men had a destiny that needed to be fulfilled; a special calling to accomplish the plan of God in our world.

Second, there are a number of “divine appointments” in each of these three narratives. “Divine appointments” as we define them, are the supernatural workings of God through simple everyday events.

Third, as was true in the lives of these biblical characters, the Lord Himself is working in this same way in the lives of believers today. Seemingly unrelated events, which on their own do not appear important, are all part
of a greater plan of the Lord. They will eventually begin to make sense to us when we are able to connect the dots.

Finally, these accounts contain a number of valuable lessons that each believer should understand as well as put into practice in their daily lives.

One final thing. At the end of the book we have an appendix in which we summarize the various divine appointments in the lives of these individuals. Along with it, we make some observations about their
experiences and the lessons that each of us should learn from them.

May the Lord teach us, through these three important biblical characters, to realize that He is also supernaturally guiding everyday events in our lives to bring about His divine will for us.

Winning the Spiritual War
Don Stewart    Part 1: Having Victory Over Our Enemies The Bible says that each believer inherits three enemies – the world, the flesh, and the Devil. In this first part of the book we will concentrate on two of them: the world and the flesh. We will see what they represent and how believers can have victory over them. Part 2 Evangelism: Telling Others About Jesus Our subject is now evangelism – telling other people the good news about Jesus Christ. In one sense, this is the most important part of the course. The final command that Jesus gave His disciples was to go into all of the world and make disciples. This command is still in force today. It is the job of every believer to tell the world the good news about Jesus. The part of our course looks at that command.
