  • An ol' man named Simeon....

    An ol' man named Simeon....

    Luke 2:25 And there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him. And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law, then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said, "Now Lord,

  • The Humanity of Jesus

    The Humanity of Jesus

    Luke 4:1-13 records that Jesus, prior to the start of His ministry, submitted Himself to being tested by Satan. Presumably, Satan was unwilling to entrust this task to even his most accomplished minion. Surely, he wanted to handle Jesus personally. We read that after he failed in his attempt to exploit the hunger and weakness caused by Jesus' 40-day fast, Satan next offered Him a bribe: sovereign power over the entire earth--if He would but bow down and worship Him:

  • The Christ of Christmas

    The Christ of Christmas

    And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. (Luke 1:30-31) The world was dark and seemingly void of God, much like the world today. Everyone seemed to be holding their breath and listening, but there was nothing except silence and a lifetime of waiting. Scholars will tell you that 400 years passed between the writing of the Old and New Testament. That is a v...

  • The Enemy Within, and the Victory From Above

    The Enemy Within, and the Victory From Above

    A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart. (Luke 6:45)

    But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
    (Matthew 5:28)
    For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander. (Matt 15:19) Anyone who ha...

  • Who were the "sons of God" in Genesis 6?

    Who were the "sons of God" in Genesis 6?

    Though not dogmatic about the issue, I believe a case can be made that the "sons of God" refer to godly descendants of Adam, rather than fallen angels, and "daughters of men" to ungodly heathen women. The one question that most suggests the "sons" may have been supernatural is, "why would the union of ordinary godly men and ungodly women produce such extraordinary children?" After all, the union between godly and ungodly people today do not produce unusual offspring, so

  • The Two Women

    The Two Women

    Most Christians are familiar with the allegory of the Church as a chaste virgin betrothed to Christ--faithfully awaiting His return to gather her to Himself for a marriage everlasting. Yet, Scripture actually reveals two "women" who have existed together upon the earth throughout the history of mankind--symbolizing two groups of people: one, the Lord's faithful, and the other, Satan's deceived. One embodies faith and righteousness, the other, rebellion and wickedness. Shortly after the Fall in...

    Humanities on Mars

    It is necessary to have mastery of sciences for a voyage to Mars. Finances cannot be ignored either. But, after that, what? Why generate the related technology and for what purpose? Are only the computers going to live in a new colony to be established on Mars?

    Since 1960s, there has been a gradual change in the educations patterns. Instead of learning how humans get along with each other, now only ‘learning money making’ skills are...

  • Seeing is Believing?

    Seeing is Believing?

    "Show me some proof of God's existence, and I'll believe in him." Ever heard that one? It's akin to the old adage, "seeing is believing." But these are examples of the distorted thinking of the world with regard to the ways of God. The fact is, one cannot truly believe in something that has been proven, for belief and proof are mutually exclusive. If we physically see something, it's proven, so faith doesn't even enter into the picture. At times, we may even have trouble believing what our...

    A Little Man Named Farris

    One Sunday morning after the church service our Pastor asked Bill and me if we might do him a favor. He said, "I was thinking it would help me a lot if you could do this.” He said he had left very early that morning to pick up someone who had called him, wanting to come to church. “He lives at an assisted living facility for men," he continued, "and I think you pass by there on your way to church. Since its on your way if he could ride with you then I wouldn't have to leave forty minutes earlier...

  • integrity fail

    integrity fail

    A skilled lead contractor was nearing the end of a 30-year career with his company, and was beginning the last few houses he would ever build. As the houses progressed, his thoughts turned to how great retirement was going to be: All the free time he needed to fish, hunt, or anything else he wanted to do. And he began to ponder what grand going-away extravaganza his boss (and good friend) might be planning for him, and what a lovely, generous bonus check he was bound to get. He had been with the...

    "It's Time", 22 April. Dit was 'n mooi en 'n groot dag, maar watter perspektief moet mens koester?

  • Another dream combined with more miracles
    by miepie
    This is the sequence to my previous article "Miracles and a dream". I had another dream a few nights ago. It was about Charles and I taking a day's trip on the train. We went all the way down south to see as much of the country as possible. Train cards are available at local stores that are less expensive in the summer and fall. Two people can then travel across the whole country cheaper than the price of a single fair from the train station in winter or spring. I also dreamed that we we...

  • Miracles and a dream
    by miepie
    Daddy gave me a dream. It was about the Pharisee and the man who smote his breast (Luke 18). He put me on the top of the Temple, and let me see them clearly. I asked questions and He answered me. It was so beautiful that I just enjoyed being up there. Daddy explained a lot to me and then I indulged those answers with hunger for more. I didn't understand why God gave me that opportunity until a few days later. While I was having a little argument with my husband, (happens in the best marriages too),...

  • How the Judges of Israel Overlapped
    by Cyberseeker
    The history of the Judges bridges the time from the Exodus to the Kingdom of Israel, however, when we sum up the rule of the Judges, a problem arises. Add them all up, plus the times of oppression such as the Midianite period of seven years, then tack on the forty years in the desert plus the reigns of Saul and David, and what do we get? 640! On face value, that's about 160 years longer than the Exodus to Solomon as stated in the official record of the Kings. (1 Kings 6:1) There is a reason. T...

  • Two spirits, one space
    by Senormac
    When I moved to this area of Oregon from Southern California, I was keenly aware of the different "spirits" that were here. People are friendly but also people are into a lot of weird occult, lifestyle, and earth energy practices. The tree huggers shop at the same organic grocery stores that the Buddists shop at and the Amazonian mystism followers ride their bicycles on the same path as cannabis growers. In the yearly city celebration parade a more eclectic group of folks you will not see, from...

  • A time to pray
    by Graham Hickey
    Is it a time to pray?

    Very often as I journey through the day I hear of groups that are setting up against the Christian faith, or I see other faiths doing things really well. This screams out at me. As a Christian church these things can be missing in our worship and life, and perhaps through highlighting other faiths. Is God is trying to compel us to act? Jesus prayed before he started his earthly ministry (before he was baptised), and before he was arrested to be crucified. ...
