  • The Day the Church Faced Down Babylon

    November 11, 2019 by

    The book of Revelation warns us of Babylon. Revelation is usually considered to represent future events, but Babylon is upon us now, and indeed has been with us since – well, since Babylon. It is the signature of the times of the gentiles (Lk. 21:24), the imposition of power of every kind as opposed to… Read more

  • Job in Four Lessons

    September 30, 2019 by

    1 – The problem of suffering The book of Job has a number of themes, but certainly the most prominent is the problem of suffering.

  • The Church in the Book of Esther

    September 8, 2019 by

    The book of Esther has been an enigma over the centuries, largely because it is the one book of scripture without any mention of God.

    August 18, 2019 by

     “Father, Forgive Them, They Know Not What They Do” “Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.” There was one righteous man on the hill of Calvary that one Friday, one man who believed the Father completely, and He was hung like a criminal between two thieves.
