Is Sunday the new Sabbath?

Most of us go to church on Sunday because …that is what Sundays are for? God instructed Israel to set aside the Sabbath – or Saturday, the seventh day – as a holy day. The Sabbath was to be their day of rest and worship. Many Bible believing Christians also worship on Saturday, and honour […]

Prayers with Answers

It seems God is limited by our prayers – that He can do nothing for humanity unless someone asks Him. God does nothing but in answer to prayer; and even those who have been converted to God without praying for it themselves, (which is exceeding rare) were not without the prayers of others. Every new […]

Who do you see?

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own […]

Simple Church or Corporate Giant?

What a difference we find when we study the church in Acts, and the churches of today! How is it that the church moved from simple gatherings in homes to corporate giants built on business principles?

Jesus is Coming Back to Reign!

The Bible details the history of God’s dealing with man since the time of creation right up to the new earth and heaven. When we consider our present place in the history of the world, it is clear that we have reached a point where some kind of reset will have to happen. We are […]

The Bible does not give us a clear outline in a single passage to explain this event, or events, as it appears to be, so we […]

The Imminence of the Lord’s Return

More and more Christians begin to talk about the last days, prophecies about to be fulfilled, the rapture, the tribulation, and the Lord’s glorious return. Questions abound, various points of view are put forward, yet uncertainty remains. The various versions of how the last days will unfold are all supported by good arguments, making it […]

Recognizing Our Times

We have a natural tendency to think that times don’t change, but they do. Next year will not be like this year, just as this year is not like last year. Everything around us is changing all the time because time doesn’t stand still. Challenges arise as time moves on. Smart people know to take […]

Reverence Required

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And […]
