On Speculating on End-time Events

Back in 1986 I developed some interest in end-time events. What I have noticed over the years is that we can always construct an interesting theory that suggests that Jesus is coming back next year, or Real Soon Now. Six day theories, pre-trib rapture theories are modified from year to year by self-appointed “prophets” and others who find the whole thing so fascinating.

I have read _highly plausible_ and interesting theories interpreting Daniel, Revelation and other Scriptures – the only trouble is they contradict each other in many points.

Eternal Security – Dare we believe it?

Back in 1997 I spoke with a pastor and the subject of the eternal security
of the believer came up. This pastor is a lovely, gracious man and is doing
many things to reach people in the community with the gospel. He obviously
loves the Lord and loves people. When I questioned him regarding the contents
of one of the theological books he was reading, it came out that he believed
in the doctrine that a truly born again believer is eternally secure, no
matter what he may do from that time on.

The Passage the Devil wanted out of your Bible

There are plenty of Bible-believing evangelicals and fundamentalists who say they believe the Word of God, but sadly you’ll not find nearly as many who believe the words of Mark 16:15-20. Some people stop at verse 15 in their believing, some at verse 16 but if it really is the Word of God, God wants us to believe it all, right up to the end of verse 20.

Will there be a Secret Rapture of the Church?

"Then the seventh angel sounded [the trumpet]: And there were loud
voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms
of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!"

(Revelations 11:15)

Introduction

I remember this day very well because something supernatural happened to me. I had just started opening my Holy Bible to find where to read. Suddenly, my heart caught an invisible fire. It was as if the room temperature had suddenly been increased. Had the house caught fire? No, there was no visible smoke or fire in the room.

I realised that this was the mighty presence of the Holy Spirit.

Objections to Divine Healing Answered

The failure of many to receive divine healing over the years have given rise to a whole slew of traditional explanations for why we should not really expect divine healing to happen today. These objections are answered in this article.

The Lord’s Supper

WE BELIEVE the Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements of bread and the fruit of the vine, is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4); a memorial of His sufferings and death (1 Cor 11:26); and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Cor 11:26), and is enjoined upon all believers “until He comes”. Luke 22:15-20; Matt 26:26-28; Acts 20:7.

Introduction

As we saw in our last lesson, an ordinance is the outward sign of an inward work. We believe Jesus only established two ordinances for us to observe.

The Devil

WE BELIEVE in the personality of the devil who, by his influence, brought about the downfall of man, and now seeks to destroy the faith of every believer in the Lord Jesus Christ – Gen 3:1-15; Matt 4:1-11; Luke 4:1-13; James 4:7; 1 Peter 5:8; John 13:2.

Introduction

Apart from the Godhead, no other personality is given as much coverage in the Bible as the devil. Whereas it is important not to give the devil undue prominence, the Scriptures also tell us not to be “ignorant of his devices” (2 Cor 2:11).

1.

The Holy Scriptures

WE BELIEVE in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, namely the Old and the New Testaments in their original writings. All scriptures is given by inspiration of God and is infallible, inerrantly revealing the will of God, concerning us all, in all things necessary to our salvation, and is absolutely supreme and sufficient authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

The Lord Jesus Christ

WE BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ, the second person of the triune Godhead, who was and is
the eternal Son of God; that He became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary.

WE BELIEVE in His sinless life, miraculous ministry, substitutionary atoning death, bodily
resurrection, glorious ascension, and abiding intercession – Isaiah. 7:14; Matt 1:23; Heb. 7:26; 1
Peter 2:22; Acts 2:22; 2 Cor. 5:21; Heb 9:12; Luke 24:39; 1 Cor. 15:4; Acts 1:9; Eph. 4:9-10; Rom.
8:34; Heb. 7:23.
