First Things First; How the World Came to Be 7. The Wages of Sin: Why Nothing Works Right

Genesis 3: 7 - 19 As long as we live in a world of sin, bad things will happen to good people, even to people who have given their lives to serve the Lord. “The wages of sin is death.” It has always been that way, ever since God warned Adam and Eve not to eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden of Eden. “When you eat of it you will surely die.” When the serpent came to Eve, he made short work of her. She saw, she ate, she gave to Adam and he ate. Just like that sin entered our world. Ever since, death has stalked us. They ate and we die. It may not seem fair, but that’s the way it is. We we offer our feeble theological objections, but there is a direct connection be

Revelation 2. The Seventh Trumpet

Revelation: The Seventh Trumpet Rev 11:15-19 Revelation 11:15-19New International Version (NIV) The Seventh Trumpet 15 The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign for ever and ever.” 16 And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying: “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign. 18 The nations were angry, and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead, and for rewarding y

Father's Day 2017 - Families of Faith

Fathers Day 2017 - Families of Faith Genesis 25: 21; Exodus 2: 1 - 2; 1 Samuel 1: 10 – 11 The young preacher was shocked to hear the well-known preacher utter the words, "I have spent some of the happiest moments of my life in the arms of another man’s wife. Yes, I have spent some of the happiest moments of my life in the arms of another man’s wife." Then, following a pause, the preacher added, "That woman was my mother." "I’ve got to use that!" the young pastor thought to himself. A few weeks later, as he was speaking to a Rotary Club, the phrase leapt into his mind and he exclaimed, "I have spent some of the happiest days of my life in the arms of another man’s wife." Then, after anothe

Revelation in a Nutshell

Revelation in a Nutshell Revelation 1- 22 I must say that I am indebted to the hard work of Timothy Mackie and Jonathan Collins in their passion for the unification of Scripture and their guide on Revelation. So let's dive in… Introduction 1:1-1:20 Firstly It’s not revelations it is revelation. Written by John. He states thatIt is apocalypse (an unveiling) - a type of literature known by the readers of the letter; similar to Ezekiel, Daniel, Enoch. An Apocalypse was a type of literature steeped in symbolic references that recounted God’s perspective of current and future events. Essentially it was so that the present could be viewed in the light of the final outcome. Now John says tha

First Things First; How the World Came to Be 5. Adam's Rib: How God Arranged the First Marriage

First Things First – How the World Came to Be 5. Adam's Rib: How God Arranged the First Marriage Genesis 2: 18 - 25 I performed the wedding ceremony for Obi and Bianca. It was a lovely occasion, as weddings usually are, and everything seemed to go well. As I stood with the happy couple only 1m away, I looked into their hopeful faces, and the thought came to me: So young, so happy, so beautiful … They don’t have a clue. It wouldn’t help to try to explain things to them because marriage must be experienced to be understood. You can only learn so much from premarital counselling. It’s like reading a book about swimming. Sooner or later you have to jump in the pool. I’m sure that Obi and Bianca

Galatians; A call to freedom; 15. The task of the Spiritual

Galatians – A call to freedom – 15. The task of the Spiritual Galatians 5:25-6:10 Galatians 5:25-6:10New International Version (NIV) 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. Doing Good to All 6 Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. 2 Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. 3 If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves. 4 Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themsel
