For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day.

And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.

His Kingdom will have no end – the Creed series

H

And, in the midst of all these crises, a growing Antichrist spirit is unleashed in the world. I watched the transmission of the Commonwealth Games’ opening ceremony. It was quite an incredible performance celebrating every culture, every diversity except ours. It had somebody saying something about the glorious, the holy Qur’an, but nothing about the Bible. And it ended up with a bull being...

Conversion

C

In the Book of Acts chapter 3, Peter is preaching, and he says to the crowd, Repent therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the LordActs 3.19 ‘Repent and be converted’. Converted means to be turned around to turn from going one way to going another way. The Hebrew word for conversion is teshuva which means to turn from...

And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a...

Does Jesus teach you not to honour your parents?

D

There’s just one scripture that I want to close with in which Jesus, apparently, tells us not to honour our parents. Sometimes this causes a bit of trouble and one of the books which I read recently by a Jewish man (Asher Norman) called ’26 reasons why Jews don’t believe in Jesus’ quotes this verse to say that Jesus actually told people to break the Commandments...
