A further look into Daniel and his prophecies (Part 2 of 3)

Monday, 25th October 2021
The problem with humanity is humanity itself. We hear all the concerns about saving the planet, but the planet could go on fine – there are millions of them up there doing very well! It’s men and women who need saving, not the planet, and because of our own faith and knowledge of God’s word, we all understand this well.

Faith and Service

Sunday, 24th October 2021

Readings: 2 Chronicles 20; Daniel 2; John 20, 21

When Paul writes to the brethren and sisters in Thessalonica it is clear that the time spent there was dear to him, and that he loves this small ecclesia very much. This becomes more astounding when brought into perspective with the amount of time Paul actually spent in Thessalonica, possibly as little as one month. Yet his faith in the strength of this ecclesia may be seen in 1 Thessalonians 1:3-4:

“Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father. Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.”

A further look into Daniel and his prophecies (Part 1 of 3)

Monday, 18th October 2021

In our last study on Daniel[1] we looked at his early life and how he had to adapt to living in Babylon with his three friends. The circumstances were the opposite to Abraham’s, where he left voluntarily, and moved at God’s command to a land that God would show him and will ultimately give him. Daniel was moved by force from that land and taken back to the land Abraham had come from.

We know from the following parable of Jesus that his rejection and crucifixion by Israel would have severe consequences:

The Good Shepherd

Sunday, 17th October 2021

Readings: 2 Chronicles 8; Ezekiel 43; John 9, 10

Our New Testament reading for today is taken from John 10. It is the parable of Jesus as ‘The Good Shepherd’, which is well known to us all, but always a great source of comfort in our lives. It is only found in the Gospel of John. The parable tells us a literal truth, but has a spiritual meaning and application to every one of us.

Accepted in the Beloved

Monday, 11th October 2021
“Redemption through his blood” (Part 2 of 2) Paul states in Ephesians 1:4 that “we should be holy and without blame before him in love”. How then can we come to be in this holy and unblameable state before God? Well v6,7 state that, “he hath made us accepted in the beloved [Jesus]. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins”. Our faith in the sacrifice of Jesus has therefore afforded us this holy and highly privileged position. We have not attained it on our own merits, nor earned it through our work but we are chosen recipients of the grace of God.

God Is Our Refuge and Strength

Sunday, 10th October 2021

Readings: 1 Chronicles 27; Ezekiel 36; John 1

We find it difficult to wait patiently because we live in a world where quick answers and solutions are expected and when these are not forthcoming, frustration and disappointment quickly materialises.

As if our lives were not challenging enough already, we are also having to cope with Covid 19, so the words in James 5:7 should resonate with us all a little louder concerning the patient approach we are to adopt in our lives concerning all matters whilst awaiting the return of our Lord: “Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.”

“Redemption through his blood” (Part 1 of 2)

Monday, 4th October 2021
The first time we read of the truth being preached in Ephesus is in Acts 18. Paul was on the homeward leg of his second missionary journey. Having spent up to two years in Corinth he was making his way back to Jerusalem and his ship put in at this important city of Asia. Priscilla and Aquila had travelled with Paul this far but he left them in Ephesus after his brief stay. Paul desired to be back in Jerusalem at the feast.

Children of God

Sunday, 3rd October 2021

Readings: 1 Chronicles 17; Ezekiel 29; Galatians 3, 4

The apostle Paul, in his letter to the Galatians, writes something startling, not just for the Christians in Galatia but more importantly (as far as we are concerned) for us too:

“So, in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ” (Galatians 3:26-27 NIV).

“Jerusalem and Its’ Future Role”

Friday, 1st October 2021

Reading: Zechariah 14                                                                                          

I want you to imagine that you know a man who claims to be able to predict what the future holds for any major city in the world. Let’s say you’re talking to him about Berlin. It has certainly gone through some difficult and challenging times over the last hundred years or so:
