The Call to Fellowship, Love and Harmony

Monday, 1st July 2024
Among the earth’s population there are a small group of men and women who are in a very privileged position. They are in this special position not because of any wealth or influence they have but simply because of their relationship with the one true GOD through Jesus Christ.

The Prayers of Hannah

Monday, 1st July 2024

Eli may have been a good High Priest earlier in his life but in his later years he was unable to control his wicked sons Hophni and Phineas. They did not love the Lord or His people. Shiloh, God’s place of worship, was corrupted by their fearful abuse.  Eli increasingly failed in his duties, only trying to correct his sons when it was far too late. 

Feasting on Godly Food

Sunday, 30th June 2024
Our exhortation today is based on our middle reading, Isaiah 55 and in particular the first three verses: “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price… hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David” (Isaiah 55:1-3).

The Priestly Ministry of John the Baptist (4)

Monday, 24th June 2024

In our previous study we saw that the essential teachings of John were repentance, confession, and remission of sins (Matt 3:2,6 Luke 3:3). John, as a priest, judged the people, teaching them the way that God provided through Christ, confirmed by John as the Lamb of God; a way requiring the washing of baptism, that they might be ‘kings and priests’.

This was a contrast to the Pharisees and Sadducees, who were judged by John as a ‘generation of vipers’, and provides us with a clear warning of not confessing our own sins or appreciating the principles of God's way of salvation.

Hannah and Samuel

Sunday, 23rd June 2024

Readings: 1 Samuel 2; Isaiah 48; Revelation 5-6

There is a real contrast in our first reading today from 1 Samuel. There are parallels too to the time in which we live. This was the period in the history of Israel at the time of the Judges, when the general attitude of the people is described in Judges 21:25, “In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes”.

The Priestly Ministry of John the Baptist (3)

Monday, 17th June 2024

The previous parts of our study showed that the people of John’s day should have expected one who would properly discharge the responsibility of a priest to teach the people of God. His parents provided an excellent spiritual upbringing to help him fulfil his ministry, and it was revealed by Gabriel that he would receive the Holy Spirit from his mother’s womb to help in this task. We now turn our attention to John’s ministry.

Jephthah’s Daughter – The Living Sacrifice

Sunday, 16th June 2024

Readings: Judges 17-18; Isaiah 40; 1 John 1-2

Much has been written and many debates have taken place over the question ‘Did Jephthah sacrifice his daughter or not?’ Many brethren and especially sisters find the whole narrative quite challenging. This is especially so as offering children as a sacrifice was abhorrent to God. 

The Priestly Ministry of John the Baptist (2)

Monday, 10th June 2024

In the first part of our study, we considered Malachi’s prophecy and how it foretold the failings of the priests. We saw that John would understand this prophecy and his responsibility to undertake the duties of a priest, of teaching and judging, in order to herald the work of Jesus. It was these responsibilities that were being neglected by the priesthood; but should they have expected that John should be the one to fulfil this prophecy?

Pressing Toward the Mark

Sunday, 9th June 2024
Pressing toward the mark

Readings: Judges 6; Isaiah 33; James 3-4

This is a very special time, because we are going to follow a precise instruction from our Lord Jesus. He said, “…this do in remembrance of me” (1 Corinthians 11:24) and so we do. But why did Jesus give us this instruction? 

So that we remember, everyday of our lives, even when we are really busy; whether with work, the family, home, or the ecclesia; that Jesus really did die for you and me: even when we are suffering the loneliness, or the pain, Jesus died for us.
