John: The Apostle Of The Love Of God

by Samuel T. Carson, Northern Ireland.

“More than a prophet” is how the Lord Jesus described His forerunner, John the Baptist. All the Hebrew prophets had been like finger posts pointing forward to the coming Messiah, and the Baptist had done the same. But there was an added dimension to his ministry. Besides pointing forward to the coming One, he had the privilege of actually pointing Him out.

Looking upon Jesus one day as He walked, John said, “Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.” Clearly, the emphasis that day was on the work Christ had come to do; to take away the sin of the world. The next day, however, the focus was on who Christ is: He is the Lamb of God. And so John said simply, “Behold the Lamb of God” (John 1:29 & 36). Taken together the person and work of Christ constitute the core theme of the gospel.

Insights Into Isaiah

A series of studies by Tom W. Walker.

1. “I SAW THE LORD”

Any studies in this magnificent Book suffer because of a twin problem. First, many passages are familiar, frequently quoted and isolated from the Book itself (e.g. chapters 6 and 53; 9:6, etc.). Secondly, the overall picture of the Book is fudged in the thinking of many as it is rarely seen or read as a whole. While this series will of necessity be able only to take a partial view consequent upon the size of the Book and its complexity, a plea must be made for the modern believer to resist the digest type of approach. We need to get into the depths of the whole Book. Three other important considerations also must occupy our thinking.

The Choice -
The Bible or Evolution

by Alan (AB) Robertson
 

CHAPTER 1:
THE CHALLENGE OF THE BIBLE

...
... “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17.

However in spite of this there is one book that has become a bit of a problem for many Bible believing Christians. Many Christians sadly do not have the same confidence in the Book of Genesis as they have in the rest of the Bible.

Straws in the Wind

by Samuel T. Carson

It is now two thousand years (approx) since the time of our Lord's first advent.

It was two thousand years from Adam to Abraham and two thousand years from Abraham to Christ in His first advent, and now another two thousand years have come and gone. Is there any significance in this, or is it just a straw in the wind?

The references in the New Testament to our Lord’s second advent pre-suppose that when the time comes, Israel will be in the land! Since A.D. 70 when the Romans destroyed the city and scattered the people this was not the case. But it is the case today, as it has been since 1948. Again, is there any significance in this, or is it just another straw in the wind?

God Holds The Key

by Norman Clay

The study of the Holy Bible (God’s Word) can bring enormous benefits to people living today. For it reflects the unchanging purposes of Almighty God and shows us why events which baffle, frighten or annoy have occurred or are occurring today. To understand the information it contains it is essential for us to know "The God of The Book" a rather than acquire a greater knowledge of “The Book of God“. In our third article we will show how God brings Leaders of the nations to power, sustains, and removes them as he “unlocks" the door to the future He has determined for them. For us, ‘it is a comfort to know.

Prophetic Witness - February 2019Joel "The Day of the Lord"

by Dr Stephen Boreland

The prophet Joel whose name means “the Lord is God" prophesied in the days of young king Joash who reigned in Judah from 835 BC to 796 BC. Joash was the eighth king of Judah and although he began well enough he finished badly becoming a cruel tyrant who sanctioned the stoning of Judah's high priest.
 
The theme of the book is the “Day of the Lord" which is one of the great prophetic themes of scripture. It's a day that casts it's shadow over the entire prophecy of Joel and it is a day that looms on the near horizon for planet earth. It’s a long day which begins in judgment and ends in glory and it has both a present partial fulfilment and a final future fulfilment in the prophecy of Joel.

Why Has One One Nation Been
Singled Out For Such Hatred?

 

Many Nations on earth experience persecution at some stage, but no other in history has suffered like Israel, explains retired Elim minister Mervyn Tilley.

Of all the nations in the world, Israel is quite unique. Unique in two ways: negative and positive. Most nations on the earth have experienced persecution at some stage but no other nation has experienced persecution as Israel has - almost continuously since they became a nation.
 
Psalm 129:1 says, “They have greatly oppressed me from my youth, let Israel say. They have greatly oppressed me from my youth, but they have not gained the victory over me."

A Christmas Meditation

Samuel T. Carson (N.I.)

The Three Wise Men

To say that three Wise men Came from the east to Jerusalem to visit the Saviour at the time of his birth is sure to expose us to challenge. True, we cannot be sure of the exact number but since there were three presentations; gold, frankincense and myrrh, it is not unreasonable to assume that there were three presenters, hence the term, ’The Three Wise Men‘.

Of course, the number of the men was not important; it was what they said on their arrival that was important, we might say it was supremely important. As they swept through the gates of the Holy City they lifted up their voices, and cried out in unison, 'Where is He that is born King of the Jews?’
 
Remarkably, that one question encapsulated the predictions that had gone before concerning Him. While it is correct to sing, 'A new king is born this day' the reality is that from the beginning of time and through promise, prediction and prophecy, His coming had been announced.

WHY THE WORLD SHOULD BE
ON RED ALERT

Alan Franklin

When we watch news of natural disasters, political turmoil, an ever more dangerous society, the near total apostasy of the nominally Christian church and the mass acceptance and promotion of perversion, we wonder: ”what in the world is going on?”
 
The answer is simple: Bible prophecy is being fulfilled in these final days of the times immediately prior to our Lord's return. This is a reason for excitement and expectation, not doom and despair.

This is the greatest story seldom told, as the remnants of what used to be called "the news media" concentrate on titivation and trivia. We are being entertained to death, spiritual death.
