What events are we witnessing now? Are things getting better, or rapidly getting worse? Are we heading for the time of the end and beyond?
The Smyrna church had something of which Jesus took particular notice. It was not their standing in this world with respect to this world’s wealth or position. They were rich in something else that was so much more esteemed by Jesus Christ. How did He regard them as rich?
Professed belief in the name of Jesus is what most Christians do, but repentance and turning to God through Jesus Christ results in a complete change.
Does the bible have anything to say about tattoos and is it relevant for us today?
The children of Israel were unaware of the greater meaning of these feasts of the Lord. To them the meaning was the representation of the harvests, and it would remind them of the blessings God would bestow on them in the harvest.

Jesus chose to “taste death for every person.” He experienced suffering of unimaginable magnitude, and He died – not because He sinned, but because we sinned. In this there is no greater love. In this God’s great love for you and for me is manifest.
Didn’t Jesus the Christ understand human weaknesses and needs before He became the son of man? Of course, He did. But He experienced them Himself. There is a difference.

I think we would all agree that it is easier to judge someone else than to judge one self. However we know that Jesus Christ teaches that we are to remove the ‘plank’ out of our own eye before trying to take a ‘speck’ out of someone else’s. Have you heard the story written by Ruth Knowlton?

Does it really matter to God whether we adopt just any customs of the world? God loves pagan festivals; His love excludes no one, nor their festivals .... right? Let’s consider what God reveals in His Word – the Holy Scriptures.

Many of us have already lost friends, jobs and other life opportunities because of our faith in God, and for our commitment to His law. Many have undertaken a commitment to God with a willingness to sacrifice everything, even ones life, to honour God. However, are we really so convicted that we would stand firm in life-and-death circumstances?
We all have times when we feel overwhelmed with the circumstances of life.
Have you had times in your life when you feel you have failed in a situation only to find, in hindsight, how much God helped you through those challenges?
