The Jews and the English have always had a rocky relationship
For years, Muslim authorities carrying out illegal construction projects atop the Temple Mount have unceremoniously dumped tons of earth and debris containing treasures of Jewish history outside the Old City walls. Groups of Israeli archeologists have struggled to sift through the remains, but it is a daunting task. But it is also a critical task. These remains that are so flippantly, but also so foolishly, exposed to the world by the Muslims are some of the best evidence to debunk Islam’s claims to the Bible’s holiest site.
CHRIST THE SOVEREIGN God forewarns the World with ‘Trumpet Blasts’ that history is reaching it’s climax. But if His own people avoid reading the book of ‘Revelation,’who will tell the World?
CHRIST AND ISRAEL
This revelation of Jesus Christ confirms that He has not forsaken Israel.In fact, they still very much have a part to play …
The last study in this series assured us that, despite the apparent turmoil in the world, Jesus Christ is still sovereign. The fifth and sixth trumpets warn that a time of great woe is coming on the earth. In believing His word we will not be taken by surprise. Jesus said of these times, ‘See I have told you beforehand.’ The primary purpose of prophecy is to enable us to be prepared.
Want to know Jesus… or know Him better? Revelation is the Father’s answer to your seeking…
Revelation is dramatic with mindblowing imagery. Some are frightened by it, others obsessed by it. The book opens with a blessing for those who both read and act on what is written in it. It closes with a warning that to add or take away from it endangers our place in the Holy City.
It is good to be given a glimpse into Heaven. The Book of Revelation affords us this luxury and ensures that, thereafter, our lives cannot remain the same 22 CHRIST IN ETERNITY No artistic depiction could give justice to the sheer magnificence of Christ on his throne in heaven. p22-23(13-3)Rev2WrenMO.qxp_PhilipWren 23/05/2018 15:26 Page 1
Due, perhaps, to over familiarity we can lose sight of the signiﬁcance of the letters to the seven churches
The book of Revelation is not a revealing given by the Father to His beloved Son, or even a book that reveals things to come. The opening words state that it is ‘a revelation of Jesus Christ’. Each section brings a new understanding of the character of Christ. These letters reveal the intimate concern that Jesus has for each part of His church.
Revelation: One of the least-opened books of the New Testament. Yet it reveals the future of the World to those who persevere.
In this fourth study from the series twelve revelations of Jesus Christ from the book of Revelation, we come to Christ in history. Jesus Christ is the central figure of all history. This study reminds us of His role in bringing salvation to mankind and the restoration of His creation.
Rosemary Bamber reviews the latest of Steve Maltz's Hebraic roots conferences, which took place earlier in December.
Foundations Conferences are a new and interesting phenomena! Until recently, they have been 5-day conferences held annually (more or less) in the spring, at The Quinta in Shropshire. However, founder Steve Maltz and his team are now branching out with smaller weekend regional conferences. This year, the second of these took place at the beginning of December, in the comfortable, pleasant surroundings of Brunel Manor, Devon.
A large percentage of delegates had never been to a Foundations Conference before (I had previously been to three out of the seven held in Shropshire and so was considered to be a bit of an 'old hand'!). Testimonies now featured on the Saltshakers website show the things that delegates most appreciated:
Over the next few weeks we are pleased to feature the work of Steve Maltz. This week, Paul Luckraft reviews Maltz's 'How the Church Lost The Way...And How it Can Find it Again' (2009, Saffron Planet)
In this engaging and entertaining book, the author is very clear about his agenda: "to restore the understanding of the Hebraic roots of Christianity that has been lost, since the early days of the Church"(p43). Equally clear is that in this book he has succeeded in making a considerable contribution towards what is an immense but vital task.
Maltz's style is chatty, but not trite. He pulls no punches – he admits he may not just be upsetting the occasional sacred cow but disturbing the whole herd – but his aim is analysis, rather than attack. Certainly at every point he makes you think, and feel, and search for a proper response.
