Why Jesus?

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21 The Lord Jesus was born in a supernatural way. His birth was the hope of the nation of Israel, the fulfilment of more than 300 specific prophecies. His birth was… Read more

The Consuming Fire

For our God is a consuming fire. Hebrews 12:29 It is in the thinking of the modern day professing Christians, that our God is described by grace, love, kindness and mercy. His every action is full of love for us, His children; His every intention only for our good, His blood-bought saints. His plan is… Read more

Our Stability in Christ

Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, Romans 16:25 Paul, in closing the Epistle of the Romans, exalts the Lord Jesus Christ, and writes confidently of the… Read more

The Care of Christ Over His Children

Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No. John 21:5 The resurrection of Christ has been completed. The Lord Jesus rose from the dead, declaring the mighty defeat of sin and Satan. It also means that there is now complete victory for the believer. The disciples, however, has decided… Read more

The Preaching of the Gospel of Grace

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. Acts 20:24 Paul was willing to give up all, including his… Read more

Victory Now

The God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. Romans 16:20 The God of peace shall bruise. This is a contradiction because how can a God of peace bruise? Bruising has the idea of hurting. Yet, for our sakes, God bruised His Son. For… Read more

Separation from People?

Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. Romans 16:17 It may seem amazing. In the context and climate of so-called tolerance and acceptance and especially the emphasis on grace, that such a teaching is taught in Scripture. Are we to separate from people? Is that what Paul is really… Read more

Fellow-Comrades in Christ

Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen, and my fellowprisoners, who are of note among the apostles, who also were in Christ before me. Romans 16:7 Paul travelled many times alone in the service of King Jesus. But thanks be to the Lord for there are 7000 who have not bowed down to Baal, nor have worshipped and kissed his feet. Elijah felt alone… Read more

God Remembers Our Service

Greet Mary, who bestowed much labour on us. Romans 16:6 Mary is an interesting name. Miriam and Maria are the alternative structures for this name. It is interesting because it means “rebellion”. Such a meaning for a beautiful name, but is it not true that the best of men is still filthiness before the Holy and wonderful… Read more

The co-labourer of the Servant of Christ

Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus: Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles. Romans 16:3-4 Priscilla and Aquila were a couple highly esteemed by the apostle Paul. They had no status in society and… Read more
