2 Chronicles 36:14-20 One of the fundamental ways by which we can know the nature and the character of God is by the attributes which He has chosen to reveal about Himself in Holy Scripture. These attributes define His person —His eternality, his sovereignty, his omnipotence and omniscience, and His spiritual and triune nature. These very attribute…
 
Hebrews 3:12-13 The little phrase, “take heed”, appears more than 50 times in the Word of God. It may only be a tiny phrase consisting of two words but boy does it pack a punch and fire a shot across the bows. It is a phrase of warning; a sound of alarm; like a bell ringing or the town crier heralding FIRE!!, so the words “take heed” call immediate…
 
Revelation 2:1-7 The Church in Ephesus was a Church that was in declension in regards to love. They had departed from that they once knew in glowing fervour and had grown cold in that most vital of areas. The heat of the battle had done something to them. All that contention against the false had jaded their glow of love. Simply put, their love had…
 
Matthew 26:17-25 Imagine being seated around the table on the night of the Last Supper with the twelve. As you’re enjoying some last and final moments together with the Lord, Jesus suddenly turns and interjects these words, “...Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me”. You try to compose yourself — who’s He talking to? Has an unwante…
 
1 Thessalonians 5:25 Some of the most profound and sublime truths in life are not found in the abundance of paragraphs, but in the trimmed leanness of a single sentence. Take for instance the sentence, “I love you” — it’s not rocket science, you don’t need a degree to understand its meaning, and yet it speaks a thousand words. How about, “I’m sorry…
 
Isaiah 40:1-2 Isaiah is the most quoted prophet in the New Testament Scriptures, and one of the most quoted books, second only to that of Psalms. It has been referred to by scholars as a miniature Bible. There are 66 Books in the Bible, and there are 66 chapters in the Book of Isaiah. There are two divisions in the Bible, and there are two division…
 
Nehemiah 4:1-6 When God begins to stir the hearts of His people to a work that He has determined to do, you can be sure of one thing; the devil will also stir the hearts of his own subjects to rise up in opposition against it. There’s scarcely a work that God has ever set about to do, that has not gone without such opposition. In the days of Nehemi…
 
Hebrews 12:1-2 A man’s sickness is known by his symptoms. The symptom is not the sickness, but rather, the symptom is the indicator of the sickness present. As I look around at the Church of Jesus Christ in the West, I don’t know any other way to say it, I see a sick Church. You say, Brother, judge not, and I say, Brother, how can I not when the sy…
 
Psalms 57:1 If I was to task a man with the arduous job of naming the greatest hymn ever written, I’m sure that opinions would abound. Take, for instance, Charles Wesley; it has been calculated that he wrote no fewer than 6000 hymns during his lifetime. Of these 6000, many are in agreement in concluding that the greatest of these (and arguably they…
 
Matthew 24:3-14 Some view the Christian race as a 100 m dash. On your marks…get set…go!!! 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and it's over! However, as one looks in the text of Holy Scripture, one quickly discovers that the Christian race is no 100m dash, but a marathon of lasting endurance! In this sermon, we look at two indispensables that are necess…
 
1 John 2:12-14 What man plants a sapling, who upon his return ten years later, does not expect to find a fruit-yielding tree? Imagine the horror at discovering that the bendy sapling is no further on in its progression as in the day it was first planted. If it is an apple tree or a pear tree, we’d expect that tree to have come to maturity, and the …
 
1 John 1:5-7 There’s something about light — its piercing rays of glory, its all-pervading brilliance, is no match for the darkened shadows cast by nature's night. I find that for so many, though they name the name of Christ, they are content to live in the bluey shades of the twilight hours when Christ is calling them into the brightness of daylig…
 
1 Corinthians 9:24-27 The athlete on the field of games is not passive. There’s no passivity about him — see him on the starting line, he’s not passive; he is thinking through the race before him, he’s focussed. Everything about the life of an athlete is disciplined. You name the sport, and I’ll show you an Olympian that’s under the rule of discipl…
 
2 Chronicles 26:1-5 When God brings His people from one season into another, they must give careful attention and purposeful thought as to how they intend to meet this new environment. I’ve come to learn over the years that change for some, while it ought to have been the best thing to have ever come their way; proved at last to be their undoing! A…
 
Luke 9:51 Many are waiting upon God in the place of prayer, and one day, God is going to answer. On the day of His answering, the day of waiting has come to end, and the time for action has now come! Play the man Christian soldier, God shall not fail thee!! When God says GO, it’s no time to procrastinate, it’s time to act!…
 
Proverbs 29:25 When you’re standing at the crossroads of life and you don’t know what to do. Far from being at a place of loss, the child of God is afforded an opportunity to enquire of the Lord. “If any man lacks wisdom (James says), let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him”. Brothers and …
 
Matthew 9:37-38 In November of last year, thousands of care workers up and down the UK were forced out of their jobs in a sector which as it stands is already facing a daunting shortage of more than 100,000 workers. The care sector is not alone in this crisis. The NHS is facing the same problem. According to the latest NHS figures, 85,000 of its st…
 
Acts 2:41-47 We live in a world where we’re continually told that change is good. Whether it be the political sphere or the workplace environment; education or the arts — to remain constant and the same is deemed to be a failure. I remember as a teacher, working in secondary education, it was frowned upon if you stayed too long teaching in the same…
 
Romans 6:1-14 What soldier is armed with an ornamental sword, to take to the field of battle? Outwardly, it appears shiny behold, but when drawn from its sheath the soldier finds the blade is blunt! So many Christians, arm themselves with the great positional statements of Holy Scripture, and yet when asked to see the evidence of such truths in the…
 
2 Corinthians 12:1-10 Just this past week, I was enjoying a moment, reading a book when I came across a statement that beautifully ministered to my heart. It involves a Pastor and a particular lady who came forward in one of his meetings. I’ll allow the Pastor to tell it in his own words: “She was somewhat timid and quiet, and she brought with her …
 
Colossians 3:15 We live in a generation where a growing disregard for basic manners is fast becoming the norm. One can teach a youngster the practice of good etiquette — “Don’t speak with your mouth full”, “Don’t interrupt a conversation”, “Knock before you enter” — the P’s and Q’s — yes please, no thank you, excuse me. All of these we can and shou…
 
Ephesians 4:1-6 This world that we presently call home; this fading temporary abode, is a world that stands fiercely divided. Now, of course, I don’t refer to the physical landmass we call planet earth, I speak of the people who populate it. On every hand as one beholds, one sees division and schism — person against person, tribe against tribe, kin…
 
Jeremiah 12:1-5 The year was 1944 when the Communist party seized power in Romania. Literally overnight, a million Russian troops poured onto the soil of Romania. In what was heralded as the “freeing” of Romania, saw instead, women raped, shops looted, men robbed and murdered. Christians were imprisoned, tortured, kidnapped, and murdered for posses…
 
Deuteronomy 8:1-6 Horatio Spafford was a Presbyterian layman from Chicago and was a successful lawyer and businessman. Humanly speaking, this man had everything going for him. He loved the Lord and was happily married with five beautiful children. However, things were about to take a drastic and sudden turn, in a series of events reminiscent of the…
 
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 There is a war that has been raging for the last two-thousand years. On one side stand the Saints of God — the army of the Church of Jesus Christ; and on the other side, principalities, and powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, spiritual wickedness in high places. If one was to stop the average person in the street and …
 
Romans 5:20-21 I find increasingly of late that cardinal and principal doctrines of the Christian faith are being called into question, not (I might add) from those outside the fold, but on the contrary, from those who claim to be inside the fold. Long established doctrines of the most immanent importance are simply being brushed aside and labelled…
 
2 Peter 3:1-15 From way back when and from days of old, there have been scoffers and mockers that have made it their duty of responsibility to poke fun at the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. “You Christians have been saying that Jesus is coming back since supposedly He left the first time!!” “Two thousand years have passed and where is the promise o…
 
1 Peter 5:7 In 1740, Charles Wesley penned the words to the timeless hymn, “Jesus, Lover of My Soul”. Without question, he had in his mind the words of the sweet psalmist David when he fled from Saul in the cave. “Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, un…
 
1 Peter 2:2-3 A lot can be gleaned from newborn babies that teach the children of God what it is to hunger and thirst. Peter, instructs believers, “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby” (1 Pet. 2:2). In the natural, newborn babes have an insatiable thirst and hunger for milk. Peter is saying that this ough…
 
Mark 10:46-52 Christianity is no passive religion. You don’t get to be an idle bystander while others around you participate. Each and every one of us is called to step into this arena of faith personally, and to walk with God for ourselves; to experience His covenant blessings, to taste of His goodness such that we can appeal to others first-hand …
 
Proverbs 23:22-26 If there’s one Last Days characteristic that has come swiftly upon Western society over the last 60-70 years, it is the flippant and widespread rebellion of children against their parents. It is almost an accepted norm that when children turn teenagers, the relationship between them and their parents breaks down. It used to be tha…
 
Hosea 14 As one reads through the Prophets, whether Major or Minor, Pre-exilic or Post, one is met with a single voice that is unanimous in its cry, certain in its proclamation, and absolute in its conclusion. Though Israel lies presently in a state of unbelief, far away from their God on account of their iniquities; a cry sounds forth from the pag…
 
1 Corinthians 10:13-14 On every hand, the Christian soldier wars and battles; seldom does he ever get to have a day off. His prime enemies are really two-fold in number, the flesh, and the devil. One must quickly learn to recognise both foes if one is to successfully stand against them so as to secure the victory. God has promised His children that…
 
Hebrews 11:6 The writer of Hebrews tells us that “…without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. One writer, commentating upon this verse said this: “These two elements seem most simple, but, alas, how many professing Christians act as if…
 
Isaiah 40:31 As human beings, I’ve come to learn that we share a trait that’s common to every one of us. Some perhaps are a little better at this than others, but I’ve come to find at length that the proverb of Solomon is true: “Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life” (Prov. 13:12). Who likes to wait? …
 
Knowing the Bible for Yourself (Pt. 14) When one holds the Bible in their hand, one ought to have an immediate sense of feel for what he/she is reading. The Book of Proverbs for instance, is immediately recognisable as being literature of wisdom. The Book of Psalms as poetry. The Gospels as historical and biographical; the epistles as written lette…
 
Proverbs 12:18 As a believer in Jesus Christ, do you still possess the sweetness of the Lord? You’ll note, I said “still”, and that’s because every one of us that are truly Christian have a day and an hour when we were born the second time from above. Just as a certain day marks our physical birth, so a certain day marks our spiritual birth. Do you…
