The Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53

T

Who is this prophet talking about? The other big issue coming out of Isaiah’s prophecy centres on this passage: ‘Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently; He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.  Just as many were astonished at you, so his visage was marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men; so shall he sprinkle many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths at him;...

Heroes of the faith – clouds of witnesses

H

Mitch Glaser So, we need to please God with our heart. And there’s a list of people who did that. I call them the ‘heroes of the faith’ and there’s a long list of them. Abraham takes centre stage. Abraham, I guess, had a lot of things happen to him related to faith. What would we do without Abraham? We now know that God could miraculously provide children, we know that God...

The Prophetic Word in the Bible

T

We’re looking at things that are happening in the world today in the light of Bible prophecy. Before I speak, we’re going to just start off with a word from the Bible, Psalm 2: Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing?2 The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,3 “Let us break Their...

Jesus will come again

J

One of the things which I believe in is that the Bible is a historical book. As well as being a book which tells us about God, it describes things which have happened and things which will happen; it describes God’s interventions into human affairs. These interventions happen at times when God changes, particularly, what we call the ‘changes in the dispensation’, when you have events like...

Israel, Middle East – Prophecy for our times

I

Will someone come up with a solution to this problem, offering peace and safety, bringing a guarantee such as a peace treaty? If so, would he be hailed as a great world leader? Israel Politics Let’s just come on to Israel because Israel was also mentioned in the speech which Guterres gave at the U.N General Assembly. He said, “In Israel and Palestine, cycles of violence under the occupation...

Lord, what do you think about this?

L

Who Was There When Jesus Died? This was my question as I watched all the pageantry surrounding the death of the Queen.  The answer came back straight away – Isaiah 53 – the prophecy of the suffering of Messiah: ‘He is despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.’ This led me to give a talk comparing how people reacted to the death of the Queen with the death of Jesus...

The Incense Altar in the Tabernacle – Exodus 30 – Tabernacle series

Incense = Prayer and Praise and the way into the Holy of Holies

The incense spices ground together = the sufferings of Jesus

Suffering in the life of a believer

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1.14

The man of God

10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse...

Current Affairs Update – April 2022

Such a global digital global currency would require the establishment of a global digital identity for every person on the planet. That’s what some people would like to see, and you might think it’s far-fetched, ‘it couldn’t happen’, but there are people already planning it. And already, it’s happening in some measure in China. So, if that spreads, then you’ve got a...

Does Messiah come twice?

D

‘Where do you get this idea of a ‘second coming’ from? Was it because Jesus did not succeed the first time that he’s got to have another go? It doesn’t say anything in the Bible about the Messiah coming twice.’ This was the response of a Jewish man I was speaking to when I said that there would be no peace in the world until Jesus comes back again. Maybe he had been reading a book by Rabbi...
