The Truth in Germany

G00181
Category

A recording from 1956 or 57, believed to be in Birmingham by brother Norman Arnold, giving an over view of the struggles of our brothers and sisters in Germany in first half of the 20th century.  Certainly a sobering lesson for us today.

The Letter of God to the Captives in Babylon

Sunday, 8th August 2021
In our middle reading in Jeremiah 29 we have just begun a section detailing the prophecies the Lord God made to the captives in Babylon. In verse 2 there is a list of those who were taken from Jerusalem. This would have included Daniel, his three friends and those preserved for the skills needed to build the second temple.

Paul’s Friends (Part 2 of 2)

Monday, 2nd August 2021

In Part 1 we noted how grateful Paul was to have so many friends in the Truth. He could remember their names and their characteristics, and wrote special instructions or encouragements suited to them. He evidently did not just stand on a platform and deliver a speech, and then move on to the next city. He stayed with his new converts and taught them from the scriptures, and in the process got to know them as close friends. In 2 Timothy the aged Apostle faces death at the hands of the evil Emperor Nero, and so writes to his friends for the last time.

“Being a Follower of Jesus”

Sunday, 1st August 2021
What would it have felt like to spend time with the Lord Jesus? He was a man who was completely good, full of kindness and mercy. Yet being with Jesus would not put everyone at their ease. His teaching was like no other - he talked about the kingdom of God and eternal life.

The Righteous Shall Live by faith

Sunday, 1st August 2021

Readings: 2 Samuel 18; Jeremiah 22; Romans 9

Many Biblical foundations are laid in Genesis, with for example, its record of the fall, redemption through the shedding of blood, judgement of wickedness as in the record of the flood and the promise of ultimate salvation in the blessings and promises to Abraham.

Paul’s Friends (Part 1 of 2)

Monday, 26th July 2021
It is a great blessing in the Truth that we have a host of friends, all over the world. These friendships are cemented over the years by meeting at Bible Schools and fraternal gatherings, and by emails or text messages. When trouble comes, we can be thankful for their help – visits, letters of consolation, and practical ministrations.

Mary and Judas – A Contrast

Sunday, 25th July 2021
Our New Testament reading today, Matthew 26, takes us through the moving events of the upper room and the Lord’s command to his disciples to remember him in emblems of bread and wine, his final preparation in Gethsemane for the ordeal to come, then his arrest and trial before the Sanhedrin.

The God of the Living

Monday, 19th July 2021

The Lord Jesus often taught in parables to clarify aspects of divine truth. Matthew 22:23 records that a group of Sadducees also used a parable and narrated it to Jesus, but their parable was designed not to clarify an aspect of truth but to demonstrate what its authors saw as the absurdity of a doctrine which they rejected, the doctrine of resurrection. Most Jews believed in a future resurrection because it is taught in the book of Daniel: “Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake …” (12:2). In contrast, the Sadducees denied the doctrine of resurrection (Acts 23:8), because they accepted only the authority of the Pentateuch, the five books of Moses, and those books make no explicit mention of resurrection.

Jeremiah and Our Human Nature

Sunday, 18th July 2021

Readings: 2 Samuel 2; Jeremiah 8; Matthew 19

Reading Jeremiah can be a struggle as we are confronted with the height of sinfulness of Judah and God’s judgements. However, Jeremiah has so much to teach us about ourselves, particularly our human nature, which is identical to those men and women of Judah, and God’s way of saving us through Jesus.

The Spirit of Christ in the Psalms (Part 2 of 2)

Monday, 12th July 2021

As the Lord Jesus Christ neared the end of his earthly ministry, the shadow of the cross loomed larger and larger. He knew that suffering lay ahead, but also, beyond the suffering there was the prospect of a glorious resurrection to eternal life, exalted to sit at the right hand of his Father. There are a number of Psalms that would have given Jesus encouragement and provide him with the determination to fulfil his Father’s will and purpose.
