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 […]

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 […]

The Battle for the Earth!

Ever since God created the Earth there has been an intense battle for it. Satan presumed God was creating it for him: “To whom would the king delight to do honour more than to myself?” (Esther 6:6); but then God gave it to man! (Genesis 1:28-30) Using deception and cunning Satan then usurped man and claimed […]
