Psalm 37 1-8

This teaching was given by pastor Barry Forder on 7th January 2018 as a topical study to start the year. As we head off into another year, I feel our theme this year is “he shall be holy unto thee: for I the LORD, which sanctify you, am holy”. (Leviticus 21:8) These words were spoken […]

From the pastor’s blog

Every Detail Matters!

In the last post, I highlighted how Satan had engineered a genetic problem with the potential to wipe out humanity (as recorded in Genesis ch6). Satan’s intention was to stop the Seed of the Woman (the Messiah) from being born, thus condemning mankind to an eternity separated from God. It was this that led to the […]

The Old Testament’s God of Love!

Critics of the Old Testament will often point to the ‘genocide’ (as they see it) that God apparently condones. Chapter 36 of Genesis serves as a reminder that God’s blessings come, not from embracing and intermarrying with the world and its systems, but by remaining separate from them! Unlike his brother Jacob, Esau didn’t see […]

From Ruin to Restoration

One of the compelling reasons we know the Bible to be true is that it never just seeks to flatter its heroes. No attempt is made to simply gloss over their imperfections and mistakes; in fact, the opposite is true! The Bibles gives it to us ‘warts and all’! We see this in the life […]

This Sunday – Genesis 10 & 11

This Sunday (14th May) we continue our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Genesis – looking at Genesis 10 & 11. These are two chapters that the critics love to dismiss as fiction or just simply Hebrew poetry. In fact, even one prominent Christian evangelist told me this was just ‘Hebrew poetry penned in Babylon’! He’d no […]

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 […]

JEHOVAH ROHI – THE LORD OUR SHEPHERD We have now reached the last teaching on the Names of God. Of course there are many other names that we have not covered, but I hope that the ones we have covered have been helpful to you all in your walk of faith. I pray that they have […]

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 […]
