Tuesday May 3rd 1887, 37 years after his baptism as a young covert at 15 years old, Spurgeon came to stand in an official capacity and pray and to commit the new schoolroom to God. With 150 people present, Spurgeon made his way to the front of the chapel and preached Isaiah 53 to the people in Thornton Heath.
Spurgeon also did something else...Preached outside on the grass.
Everything happens for a reason and the people who are divinely guided and focussed on God are instruments for his service too. The finding of this church information is indeed brought to my attention because I was born on this circular road, Beulah Crescent in Thornton Heath and had I not been the church might not have stood out for me.
Some time ago I wrote, if God is ruling over one land, he is ruling over all lands. And since this time I learned Prince Charles is the President of a charity named Caring for God's Acre.
Beulah is also named twice in Wales - no coincidence.
Prince Charles was crowned The Prince of Wales - a title that evolved from King of the Britons. But as Prince Charles is not God and certainly not Jesus Christ, the focus is on God's divine plan for mankind unfolding.
Isaiah 53 it is written to revisit this scripture today:
At different times throughout the course of history, people have been called for the purpose of reminding that there is a far higher authority ruling over all of us equally.The collective population as individuals are born to learn their lessons and evolve spiritually - Prayer and the Holy Spirit guiding us enables this process.
There are people who deny that God communicates and yet, Jesus has the Spirit of God within his being. As the man who was raised from his crucifixion, Jesus was taken up to heaven. It is one of the spiritual mysteries that God will communicate to the prophets even if everyone does not know how. Through Jesus Christ, the message of truth continues to be given even in this day....for the salvation of mankind.
Charles Haddon (CH) Spurgeon 19 June 1834 – 31 January 1892) was a British Particular Baptist preacher. Spurgeon remains highly influential among Christians of various denominations, among whom he is known as the "Prince of Preachers".
So the question many may ask: Who are the Beulah Family?
Remember a church building is a shelter - a house of prayer.
A church traditionally is an assembly of people.
