How to add Value in a small block – Good things come in small packages

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Bigger isn’t always better, for some families living in a large home is great but for others the cost and energy required to maintain them is difficult. A smaller home on a more affordable block can offer the same lifestyle quality as a big home. A lot of singles, couples and young families now embrace “town house living” even though a house on a big block was once the dream.

You can’t build McMansions in nooks and crannies, we have to build smarter, tighter, leaner and more fitter houses to have a better mortgage verse living life balance. Every block has its challenges, why not embrace them and use them to create character in a home.

Having a smaller home allows people to save money on land and have the option of investing in the home or maybe the holiday they have always wanted.

Top 5 Benefits of living in a small home

  1. Having a small home can result in big savings with construction and furnishings and also make a home feel cosier and create a genuine lived in feel.
  2. Utility cost will be lower
  3. Lower carbon foot print
  4. Cleaning and de-cluttering takes half the time, allowing you to have more time to do the things you love.
  5. Less room means more quality family time

Living in a small home with a family

Larger homes are great, but sometimes create distance in families as each person has one or more places where they can remove themselves from everyone else. Small homes bring back old family values. Having a living room for the family to cook, eat, share their day and actually be lived in and having bedrooms for privacy and peaceful long night sleeps. Studies show; families that live in a small home spend more time together and have more regular family outings. Whether you are a family of 3 or have many fur babies these activities create a strong bond in a family structure.

People looking to downsize

Statistics show that 22.5 % of people in older households without children wanted to downsize to smaller homes. These older age groups moving house is often associated with 'empty nesters' downsizing or moving into more suitable accommodation for health or age reasons. Of people in older households who had moved in the last five years, almost a quarter (23%) mentioned wanting a smaller home or to downsize as a reason for their latest move.

Downsizing to a smaller property might not sound like the most glamorous change to your life, but remember..

 Downsizing does not mean downgrading!

Downsizing is the perfect option for the people who have already lived the dream of the life on a big block. Downsizing to a 3 bedroom home to escape the life of maintenance you have lived for so long. Downsizing can bring back the old school values of having a living room for the family to cook, eat, share their day and actually be lived in and having bedrooms for privacy and peaceful long night sleeps.

Benefits of living on a small block

Gone are your full Saturdays of mowing lawns and overflowing green waste bins. Living on a small block allows enough creative space in the garden to design something truly amazing with low demand in maintenance. There is less expense in overheads such as watering, weed control and Kerb Side Appeal. Thus, freeing up your time to do the things you truly love.

How to make space in a small home

In small houses vertical storage is a great way to go. It's important not only to keep your belongings out of the way, but it also sends the eye upwards creating a sense of space. Utilising vertical space can be done by extending the height of kitchen cupboards, wardrobes and linens. Also being creative with the storage areas, making every space count. Having bench seats at the dining table and use the space underneath as storage. Built in cabinetry around the TV and even storage in furniture such as ottomans and beds.

Tiny Homes Movement

Tiny homes are the new alternate lifestyle dream, originally from the United State, tiny homes are fast attracting people here in Australia. The typical American home is around 245 m2, whereas the typical small or tiny house definition is a home with square footage is between 9m and 37 m2.

People attracted to tiny houses tend to build or purchase them because they're cheaper than standard houses, leave less of an environmental footprint and allow their owners to have more time and freedom to do other things besides home maintenance. This is one of the reasons why a lot of elements of a tiny home design can be incorporated into a custom home on a small block.

 

They include everything you need such as a bathroom, living space, kitchen and bedroom all in a scaled down, petite space. It is a movement that focuses on a simpler way of living rather than on the things we own.

The tiny life provides huge financial advantages and the ability to live a lifestyle filled with adventure.

Asking the experts

We caught up with Wayne Eagles from My Property Consultants about value in a small block and 3 bedder homes vs 4 bedders. See our Interview below.

What is considered value in a small block when selling it?

"Home owners are beginning to swing away from the maintenance of larger blocks with a trend toward unit living or homes on smaller blocks as evidenced by many new releases."

What is better, 3 bedroom or 4 bedroom homes?

What are the pros and cons when selling a small home?

"New releases are flooded with 4/2/2 properties with a lot being purchased as investments as advised by accountants for depreciation purposes. These properties represent the great depreciation benefits but are likely to underperform in the broader market simply due to supply and demand factors. A smaller, higher quality home hits many points in the market including first home buyers, retirees, divorcees and investors with a reduced price point."

Do you believe custom design can separate you from the crowd?

"A fresh, high quality, well designed custom home with high end inclusions is definitely a point of difference which will assist the owner in separating themselves from much of the stock on the market"

What do you think about lifestyle building?

"Lifestyle building is wonderful for the initial occupant for which the property is initially designed and also offers another point of difference at point of sale which would help separate you from the crowd when there is a lot of stock on the market….it is amazing how a fresh idea and how we live the way we live will in turn suit another party at a similar stage of life."

There are so many elements to designing a home and we don’t believe that one size fits all. The flexibility of custom design allows you to get the full potential out of a block of land and the home on it. It also can help in running costs and longevity of the home. For example, strategically putting windows in areas to create cross breeze and better ventilation will lower heating/cooling costs and damp areas in medium density living. Together with  Architecture Republic, we have come up with 3 options to suit a number of different lifestyles.

Plans were drawn by Architecture Republic in conjunction with Merino Homes

Architects take on design a small block

Together with architecture republic we came up with 3 different designs to suit a block based on a few key features; 9m frontage, front door facing north and having a court yard instead of a back yard allowing better access to natural light and a view of open space instead of a fence. There are so many elements to designing a home and we don’t believe that one size fits all. The flexibility of custom design allows you to get the full potential out of a block of land and the home on it. It also can help in running costs and longevity of the home. For example, strategically putting windows in areas to create cross breeze and better ventilation will lower heating/cooling costs and damp areas in medium density living. We have come up with 3 options to suit a number of different lifestyles with and they provided us with 3 options of floor plans for small blocks and they gave us some notes for each plan.

Living in style house plan (option 1) – This was the first concept created for this brief, it has easy access and ticks all the basic boxes; kitchen, living and dining, 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms and a separate laundry. The biggest discussion point for this design was the main bedroom is accessed from a main living area and not a hallway. Traditionally any bedroom should be accessed from a hallway to allow privacy in every day to day living but for some this design defect is an asset, some love the feeling of always being connected to the movement of the house and prefer the open-door concept of the design. This could also meet the liveable housing guidelines set in place by a national body, The Liveable Housing Guidelines which have been developed by industry and the community provide assurance that a home is easier to access, navigate and live in, as well more cost effective to adapt when life’s circumstances change.

Entertainers house plan (option 2) - Master suite is at the front of the building with both Jack and Jill bedrooms having access to the backyard and windows on two sides. The master bedroom has its own access onto the courtyard, which is a really important part of what makes this design work.

Nice and Cosy house plan (option 3) – If privacy is an issue and you prefer to access any bedroom from a hallway this is the plan for you. The dining room is sacrificed so that the master suite is accessed via a hallway, and there is an extra storage area. The master bedroom gets a walk-through robe, there is also room in the bedroom for more robes if needed. This arrangement means the living areas still have access through to the backyard though, and the laundry is closer to the yard.

We showed these plans to a number of people ranging from 21 years old to 67 years old, males. Females and couples. There was always a number of things each and every person considered changing if it were their home. Each block has its own unique qualities and embracing the challenges a block may be the best decision you’ve ever make. When looking at blocks of land don’t shy away from the small house movement. The plans here are just some ides to customise your lifestyle with a custom-built home.

Notes from the Architects

- The house is designed around a courtyard rather than a backyard, which gives every bedroom and living area an outlook (instead of just looking at a Colorbond fence 900mm from the window).

- Living areas have about 9m of opening to the yard (which wouldn’t  be impossible if they opened onto a backyard on a 9m block.

- Locating the living areas in the centre of the house means there are no long hallways. The hallway at the front is only the length of the garage.

- Garage is 3×6m. If you're not driving a Pajero, that gives you a fair bit of space at the back of the garage for some shelving and storage.

- Bedrooms neatly fit a single bed, wardrobe and desk.

- In all options the bedrooms all have windows on two sides to easily create a cross-breeze through the room. This is always a plus in any home

- In options 1 and 2 there are separate laundries with some room for linen space, as well as a linen cupboard in the hall. In option 3 the laundry is sacrificed to add a hall and a more private entrance to the master bedroom.

- The design suits north being front, back, or courtyard side. If north were the other direction, the house could mirror to suit.

- There is room behind the kitchen for streamline water tanks.

- Access to courtyard and backyard down the left-hand side of the property.

- In all options there is separation between parents' bedroom and living areas on the one hand, and the children's bedrooms on the other. This creates a bit of soundproofing to suit watching late night movies etc!

- In option 1 - There is a study nook next to the kitchen that has outlook into the garden. This could be sacrificed with the laundry to make the living areas larger.

- The hallway has been designed wider than the bare minimum, to avoid the house feeling too poky and providing versatility with a good first impression.

- Ceiling over dining and kitchen is pitched to match the roofline and flat elsewhere (though the lounge room in option 1 could pitch up skillion-style).

- If the house were to be extended, we think the upper floor would sit over the front bedrooms, bathroom and hallway. The new stairway could replace the bathroom (perhaps with a powder room under) and a new bathroom upstairs or could take a bedroom (to be replaced upstairs) or could take the study nook and some of the garden.

  1. My spouse and I stumbled over here from a different website and thought I might as well check things out.
    I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to exploring your web page repeatedly.

  2. Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of us have created some nice practices
    and we are looking to swap solutions with others, be sure to
    shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  3. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search
    Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to
    rank for some targeted keywords but I’m
    not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share.

    Kudos!

  4. Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if
    you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you
    protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is
    very much appreciated.

  5. Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My weblog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
    If you have any recommendations, please share.

    Thanks!

  6. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to
    ask!

  7. Its like you learn my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, such as you wrote the e
    book in it or something. I believe that you could do with a
    few % to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog.
    A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

  8. A person necessarily lend a hand to make seriously articles I might state.
    That is the first time I frequented your web page and thus far?
    I surprised with the research you made to create this actual post incredible.

    Wonderful job!

  9. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other then that, fantastic blog!

  10. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?

    A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.

    Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

  11. When I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
    Kudos!

  12. Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a
    entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design.
    Excellent choice of colors!

  13. Thanks for the tips you write about through this website. In addition, a lot of young women who become pregnant never even aim to get medical insurance because they worry they would not qualify. Although some states right now require that insurers produce coverage regardless of pre-existing conditions. Rates on these guaranteed programs are usually greater, but when thinking about the high cost of health care it may be any safer strategy to use to protect your financial future.

  14. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after looking at many of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!

  15. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d certainly
    donate to this brilliant blog! I guess for now i’ll
    settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this site
    with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

  16. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    However think about if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could
    definitely be one of the greatest in its field.
    Awesome blog!

  17. Very great post. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to mention that I have truly loved surfing around your blog posts.
    In any case I’ll be subscribing for your rss feed and I’m hoping you write once
    more very soon!

  18. We absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to be
    what precisely I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to
    write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind writing a
    post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write concerning here.
    Again, awesome weblog!

  19. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?

  23. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There
    was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She
    never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  30. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I think that you need to publish more about this subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people don’t discuss these issues. To the next! Many thanks.

  32. Would you believe that the Bible foretold of a global cashless society over 2000 years ago? In the book of Revelation we see this prophecy:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666” (Revelation 13:16-18).

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise we could still buy or sell without the mark among others if physical money was still currency. This mark could not be spiritual, because the word references two different physical locations.

    RFID microchip(see photo) technology will be the future of a one world cashless society being implanted in our right hand or forehead. Some time after the Antichrist takes the stage, Revelation 13:11-15 tells us that a false prophet will arise deceiving many to take the mark because of the miracles he does before men.

    This major Biblical prophecy is being fulfilled through the rapid growth of technology in our world. We can see how we have been conditioned through convenience in our every day life in different forms. More specifically by how we make payments…

    Since the ancient of times people have been using tangible currency to make payments among one another. Because of the rapid acceleration of technology in these recent generations, we have come to the digital age in which we are able to make virtual payments with such devices as debit and credit cards. We are now at the point where these cards have a chip contained with them, and some even allowing you to tap your card on a reader to make payment. Along with self checkout lines in our market places and the cryptocurrency industry making a rapid climb in such form as bitcoin, we can see that these are all stepping stones ultimately leading to a global cashless society.

    Carl Sanders sat in seventeen New World Order meetings with heads-of-state officials such as Henry Kissinger and Bob Gates of the C.I.A. to discuss plans on how to bring about a one-world system where everyone would have a RFID microchip implant…

    The government commissioned Carl Sanders to design a microchip for identifying and controlling the peoples of the world—a microchip that could be inserted under the skin with a hypodermic needle (a quick, convenient method that would be gradually accepted by society).

    Carl Sanders, with a team of engineers behind him, with U.S. grant monies supplied by tax dollars, took on this project and designed a microchip that is powered by a lithium battery, rechargeable through the temperature changes in our skin. Without the knowledge of the Bible(Brother Sanders was not a Christian at the time), these engineers spent approximately one-and-a-half-million dollars doing research on the best and most convenient place to have the microchip inserted.

    Guess what? These researchers found that the forehead and the back of the hand(the two places Revelation says the mark will go) are not just the most convenient places, but are also the only viable places for rapid, consistent temperature changes in the skin to recharge the lithium battery. The microchip is approximately seven millimeters in length, .75 millimeters in diameter, about the size of a grain of rice. It is capable of storing pages upon pages of information about you. All your general history, work history, crime record, health history, and financial data can be stored on this chip.

    Brother Sanders believes that this microchip, which he regretfully helped design, is the “mark” spoken about in Revelation 13:16–18. The original Greek word for “mark” is “charagma,” which means a “scratch or etching.” It is also interesting to note that the number 666 is actually a word in the original Greek. The word is “chi xi stigma,” with the last part, “stigma,” also meaning “to stick or prick.

    Mr. Sanders asked a doctor what would happen if the lithium contained within the RFID microchip leaked into the body. The doctor replied by saying a terrible sore would appear in that spot. This is what the book of Revelation says: “And the first(Angel) went, and poured out his vial on the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore on the men which had the mark of the beast, and on them which worshipped his image” (Revelation 16:2).

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to watch a video where Carl Sanders gives his testimony on how he helped design this RFID microchip and how it matches scripture in the Bible.

    Aaron Russo produced such movies as Mad as Hell, Trading Places, and America: Freedom to Fascism. He gained the attention of a man named Nick Rockefeller who told him their ultimate goal is to put an RFID microchip in everybody…

    Aaron and Nick(who is a lawyer) met through a female attorney of Aaron’s in the late 90’s. Nick had seen the movie Mad as Hell and knew Aaron was running for governor of Nevada. Knowing the impact Aaron was having on society, who being a freedom fighter standing for the constitution of the United States, Nick sought to befriend him to subtly recruit him into his secret society.

    Nick would come to visit Aaron’s home from time to time having dinner and sharing thoughts among one another. Nick had told Aaron 11 months before 9-11 occurred that there would be an event(though not sharing what that event would be), and from that event they would invade Afghanistan and Iraq to establish bases to help build the New World Order. And that there will be this war on terror where there is no real enemy, and the whole thing is a hoax; a tool used by the American Government to take over their own people through the propaganda of fear. Because you cannot define a winner, it can go on for as long as they desire.

    Aaron asked Nick what the purpose was for doing these things because they have all the money and power in the world. Nick replied by saying their ultimate goal is to put a microchip in everybody so they can have total control over the people.

    In December of 2017 Donald Trump made history be recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people are now able to push forward in bringing about their long awaited Third Temple prophesied in the Bible…

    Donald Trump is being compared by many to the Persian King Cyrus who brought about the decree for the Jewish people to return to their homeland Jerusalem and rebuild their Temple around 539 BC. An Israeli organisation has minted a coin bearing US President Donald Trump’s image(see photo above) to honor the US leader’s decision to move the American embassy to Jerusalem. This coin also bears the face of King Cyrus, as well as the Third Temple on the back. It is being sold to help raise funds to build this new Temple.

    The Jewish people have been without a temple for almost 2000 years since the destruction of the second temple in 70 AD by the invasion of the Roman army. This event was prophesied by Jesus in Matthew 24:1-2 where He told His disciples, “…Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” They are looking forward to not only having a temple once again, but to also receiving their messiah who they have been long awaiting for. In an interview, one Jewish man stated that this messiah will be a spiritual guide and political leader to all nations gathering all religions under the worship of one god.

    History tells us that the Orthodox Jewish people did not receive Jesus as their Messiah even though He fulfilled 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection.

    In the book of Isaiah chapter 53, prophet Isaiah gives a clear indication for recognizing the Messiah who was to come found in the Jewish peoples own Tanakh(also known as the Old Testament). He writes that the Messiah would be despised and rejected by men, He would be put to death for our transgressions; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter and His soul was an offering for sin. This chapter is clearly speaking of Jesus who is called the Lamb of God, who went to the cross to die for the sins of the world (John 3:16).

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this messiah who will seat himself in the Third Temple will be the Antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4).

    In the book of Daniel, prophet Daniel is given revelation from God telling us what the Antichrist will do in the last days: “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week(known as 7 years); but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering…” (Daniel 9:27). Jesus follows up with these verses and affirms to His disciples and readers about what is written in the book of Daniel by saying, “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place(temple) (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    Astronomer(PhD) and best-selling author Hugh Ross travels the globe speaking on the compatibility of advancing scientific discoveries with the timeless truths of Christianity. His organization, Reasons to Believe (RTB), is dedicated to demonstrating, via a variety of resources and events, that science and biblical faith are allies, not enemies…

    Did you know that the 4 initial conditions and 10 creation events of how the universe and earth were formed written by Moses, in the book of Genesis, are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? Astronomer Hugh Ross calculated the probability that Moses could have known this by his own knowledge to be, conservatively, one in a quadrillion, quadrillion, quadrillion, quadrillion. Ask yourself, are you willing to bet your soul on them odds that Moses got it all correct by chance, or did God reveal it to him?

    Did you know that the Bible does not say the earth was formed in six 24-hour days, but rather six long finite periods of time? The universe is approximately 13.8 billion years old and the earth 4.5 billion. This does not contradict the Bible; it lines up with it. The Bible got it right from the beginning by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). And says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things.

    Earth resides in the darkest location within the Milky Way Galaxy where physical life is possible. And our Milky Way Galaxy lies in the darkest location in the universe where physical life is possible. Not only that, but so we are also able to observe all of the universe, from the cosmic beginning at the big bang, all the way through.

    Because we can observe the beginning at the big bang, we are able to confirm that the Bible had it right all along, that is, in the beginning God created the Heaven and Earth; as if God wanted us to discover Him through His creation and His word. The thought among scientists in years past was that the universe was eternal before they discovered a cosmic beginning. This discovery troubled some of them because they realized it favored the God of the Bible.

    The Bible, compared with the book of nature, has no contradictions, making ten times more creation claims than all other major “holy” books combined; while these other books contain scientific errors in them. Hugh Ross and his team have discovered these facts and many more. He has brought many scientists to faith in Jesus by showing how the Bible and the book of nature work together in harmony. His claims are based on published scientific documents. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Hugh Ross is quoted to be saying, “Astronomers who do not draw theistic or deistic conclusions are becoming rare, and even the few dissenters hint that the tide is against them. Geoffrey Burbidge, of the University of California at San Diego, complains that his fellow astronomers are rushing off to join ‘the First Church of Christ of the Big Bang.”

    He founded and helps run an organization called Reasons to Believe that brings out the latest evidences for the God of the Bible on a weekly basis, only making stronger the case for the Biblical God as time goes on.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to watch a video where Dr. Hugh Ross goes over these facts and many more showing us that God has given us two books, the book of nature, and the Bible. And that these two books are allies, affirming to us that the Bible truly is the inspired word of God.

    Thousands of archaeological discoveries throughout the years have affirmed the history of people, places and events that are told within the Bible. Ron Wyatt(shown in photo) is well known for being a part of three big historical discoveries that many may call myths…

    In the year 1959, in Turkey was found a man-made ship buried, preserved underneath volcanic ash, at the elevation of 6,500 feet. The Bible says Noah’s Ark rested on the Mountains of Ararat after the floodwaters receded. Not only was this ship found on the Mountains of Ararat, it is also the exact same length God told Noah to build the Ark; that is, 515 feet, or 300 Royal Egyptian cubits. Ron Wyatt, along with scientists from around the world, lead the research of this artifact for many years.

    “Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground” (Genesis 19:24-25).

    Archaeologists have discovered round balls of brimstone, or nearly pure sulfur(98), to be rained down on the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah turning it into ashes; unlike any other sulfur found on Earth. Geothermal activity near volcano’s produce about 40 sulfur, but is of a different kind. There is no geothermal activity around these cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.

    “…And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them” (Exodus 14:21-28).

    Moses and the Israelites escaped the pursuing Egyptian army when God made a way by parting the waters of the Red Sea. The parted waters came crashing down upon the Egyptians, destroying all who pursued.

    Artifacts discovered across the bottom of the Red Sea include wheels, chariot bodies as well as human and horse bones. These chariot parts have been discovered to be from the Egyptian army during the era when the Exodus occurred.

    The Bible is more than just a book, it is a historical library consisting of 66 books written by 40 different authors over a span of 1,500 years. These authors lived in different times and regions, yet the Bible harmonizes itself beautifully across all books with no provable contradictions found within it. It contains God’s plan for the redemption of mankind from the cosmic beginning of creation, all the way to the end unto God’s new creation. Giving names, dates, places, full of prophecy, geography, history and science that can be put to test, and has, confirming the Bible to be true. There are over 25,000 ancient manuscripts of the New Testament lining up within 99.6 of each other, with just minor typos; As well as the Dead Sea scrolls found in 1947 affirming the Bible we have today has been preserved.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

    “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

    Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”

    Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit” (John 3:3-8).

    We need to have a personal encounter with the living God to truly know Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. God is as close as we allow Him to be. It is sin that separates our hearts from Him. We need to come before Him in prayer, humbling ourselves with an open heart; confessing our sins and be willing to forsake them. We need to keep asking Him for the Holy Spirit so we may be born from above, so we may walk in the Spirit by living a holy life. He is willing to destroy the works of the devil in our lives making us feel like a child again, but we must be willing to truly receive Him by obeying his commands.

    When we receive Jesus, and His baptism, our body of sin is put to death, just as He was buried. And just as He was raised to newness of life on the third day, likewise His Spirit within us makes us alive again. The same Spirit that rose Jesus from the dead will dwell in us, so when the time comes, we may be resurrected into newness of life.

    God is more beautiful than anything we could ever imagine. He is the best Father we could ever have Who only wants the best for us. Jesus promises trouble in this life for those who follow Him, and we may wonder why He would allow us to go through certain trials. First start with this question, what is God doing hanging on a cross? It is not that God has kept Himself separate from the suffering of this world, but He himself came to be a part of it for the redemption of mankind. This life is a foreshadow to the eternal one to come, a refiners fire to test our souls to bring about a genuine end time harvest of the wicked and righteous. Without pain and suffering there can be no free will, and without free will there can be no true love.

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).
