The World To Come

Hebrews 2:5 — “For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.” As we continue our verse-by-verse study through Hebrews, Steve reminds us of the wider context in which “the world to come” is discussed – there is the angelic conflict and the Incarnation of God’s Son.…

The Christ Must Be Killed

Luke 9:18-22 — “Whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.” Peter’s confession is the foundation of the church. If a person doesn’t share Peter’s belief concerning the identity of Jesus then they cannot call themself a Christian! But what exactly did Peter mean when He said this? What did Peter…

The Role Of Fasting In The Christian Life

Nehemiah 9:1-3 –As a sign of repentance the people of Jerusalem undertook a fast. The Word of God had been preached and they began to recognise and acknowledge their sin.

Is It Real Or Is It Fake?

Exodus 9:27-35 & 10:16-20 — “And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked…” As the plagues took their toll on Egypt, there were two occasions where Pharaoh seems to have expressed repentance.

The Silent Screaming Of A Guilty Conscience

Luke 9:7-9 — “Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was perplexed…” As reports about Jesus filtered into Herod’s court, speculation swirled as to the identity of this miracle-working teacher. There were those who believed it was John the Baptist risen from the dead and eventually this is what…

The Biblical View Of Signs & Wonders Today

Hebrews 2:4 — “…God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?” The apostles were enabled by God to perform miracles and in the Book of Acts we have accounts of some of these. The miracles were signs intended to…

Lessons From The Ending

Colossians 4:15-18 — In this, our final study in the Book of Colossians, we consider the instructions Paul gave concerning the letter and about another letter that he’d sent to another church. We discover that from very early on, an apostolic letter to one church was seen as having relevance to other churches and this…
