He has not left Himself without a witness!

Acts 14:17 tells us that God has not leftHimself without a witness. It should, therefore, come as no surprise that when we come to a passage like Genesis 5, one that has been heavily attacked and ridiculed by critics of the Bible, we find it vindicated by both the witness of archaeology, and by incredible deliberate […]

Three Words That Changed Everything!

They are the most damaging, malicious and vengeful three words ever uttered in time and space. “Has God said?” Satan’s objective was clear; cause Eve to doubt God’s Word, in so doing, get her to focus on this forbidden fruit. If Eve fell for Satan’s ruse, he would be able to lay claim to this […]

The Sanctified Sabbath

In Chapter 2 of Genesis, we see God sanctify the Sabbath, i.e. set it apart. Why was God so insistent on Israel keeping the Sabbath? In Numbers 15:32-36 we have the account of an individual who was put to death for simply gathering sticks on the Sabbath! Now, there is not a person on this planet […]

The Beginning of Life – Day 5 & 6

We continue our verse-by-verse study in Genesis, picking up at chapter 1 verse 20: If you want to listen to the audio teaching associated with these verses, you can find the Audio and Powerpoint slides in the Sunday Morning Teaching section: CLICK HERE Genesis 1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving […]

Day Two, Three & Four

We live in a world where ‘science’ has proven that God does not exist and the Bible is nothing more than ancient folklore – right? Well, actually no. True science and the Bible will never be in disagreement because they both have the same author! It is, therefore, fascinating when we come to the opening […]

JEHOVAH M’KADDESH – THE LORD WHO SANCTIFIES

The word ‘holiness’ is from the Hebrew ‘kodesh’, and is allied to ‘sanctify’ the Hebrew for which is translated in English as ‘dedicate’, ‘hallow’, and ‘holy’.  In its various forms it appears about 700 times in the Bible and in this expression, Jehovah M’Kaddesh, the Lord Who Sanctifies. God created Israel to be a holy […]

Jehovah Shammah – The Lord is There

Ezekiel 48 v 35 ‘All the way around shall be eighteen thousand cubits; and the name of the city from that day shall be “THE LORD IS THERE.” This verse is talking about the incredible vision that Ezekiel had of Jerusalem as it will be in the Millennial Age and of the temple that will […]

JEHOVAH SHALOM

JEHOVAH SHALOM – THE LORD OUR PEACE The word ‘shalom’ means ‘peace’ and is used as a form of greeting in Israel, and also as a form of benediction as in, Peace be to your house,’ or ‘Peace be upon you’. It is a word we are familiar with as believers in Jesus and maybe we have […]
