A Tribute To The Bible

This anonymous poem, extolling the virtues of Scripture, is well worth committing to memory.

The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.

Insight Into The Minor Prophets: Micah

Micah was a Morasthite who lived and served in the days that Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah reigned as kings of Judah this brings the date of the book between 759 – 698 B.C. The prophet Micah announces condemnation against the leaders, priests and prophets of Israel (3.5) for their deceit of the people. The kingdom of Judah is about to fall at the hands of the Assyrians (722 B.C.) and there is much instability in the kingdom. 

Insight Into The Minor Prophets: Jonah

Jonah was the son of Amittai who lived during the reign of king Jeroboam the 2nd (795 – 753 BC). His ministry falls just after Elisha and before Amos & Hosea. This short book tells of how the Lord sent Jonah to go to Nineveh, a city full of paganism, to announce that the Lord would destroy the city within 40 days. Jonah is the story of a man running and fighting against the presence of the Lord.The story of Jonah being swallowed by a fish is probably one of the most well known stories in the scriptures but dig deeper, study the life & attitude of this prophet and there are so many lessons to be learned.

Saturday Bible Class: Am I Really Part of the Household of Christ?

Am I really part of the household of Christ? How does a person qualify? There are many professors of Christ who claim to be “holy brethren” and “partakers of the heavenly calling,” but not everyone who claims Christianity will enter into God’s rest. To identify as one of the people of God or even to be part of a gathering of God’s people is not enough to enter into God’s rest. Our passage shows that it is only faith that leads to rest, and obedience is the outworking of faith

Saturday Bible Class: The Gospel Requires a More Attentive Ear than We Gave the Law

Previously we noted that the professing Christians were presented with the chief of reasons as to why they left behind the Jewish religion of type and shadow for the reality and substance in Jesus Christ. As ch1-4 deal with the Person of Christ, the author considers the Son of God and then deals with the bearing which this fact plays upon the listener. Before plowing ahead with his theme, the writer halts to warn his audience of the special importance of listening to and holding fast to the gospel which they had heard.

Saturday Bible Class: Hebrews Overview

The purpose of the letter to the Hebrews is to dispel any notion that what these individuals had in the rituals of Judaism can match the reality of Christ. Chapters 3, 4, 6 and 10 show that some professing Hebrews had never been converted, and instead turned back to Judaism. After reading this letter, the believer would see that there is absolutely no way they could return to Judaism.
