 Queen Elizabeth II was a remarkable woman, living for 96 years and reigning for 70.  Her funeral was also remarkable, with literally hundreds of thousands of spectators in London and Windsor.  In the park at Windsor Castle, it was known that a quarter of a million people were present.  It was touching to see [...]

Three months ago we all noted with joy the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.  For seventy years she faithfully served as the monarch of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth countries, including Canada. Now, sadly, it is all over as she died on Thursday 8th. September 2022, at the age of 96, and the nations were plunged [...]

     The book of Acts concludes with Paul dwelling in “his own hired house” [Acts 28:30]. Although his freedom was curtailed, it must have been a pleasant two years for Paul.  Since becoming an evangelist for Christ, he had wandered across the lands of Asia Minor and other countries preaching the word of God.  [...]

     Psalm 119 is a wonderful composition that should delight the believer.  It is the longest chapter in the Bible at 176 verses.  Although no name is ascribed to the author we tend to agree with Spurgeon who called it “David’s pocket book” [Treasury of David, Vol. 3, p 130].      It has a [...]

Ezekiel 35:3 contains the worst words God’s enemies can hear, “Behold, “I am against thee”.  Chapter 36 has the very best words for the weak saint., “Behold, I am for you.”      These words are a reminder that God’s purposes will be opposed.  All that is not of God is against us.  The devil [...]

     Roman soldiers usually carried two offensive weapons, a sword and a spear.      However, the Lord has given His soldiers just one, the “sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” [Ephesians 6:17].  It is a powerful weapon and in Matthew 4 we see how Christ wielded it in His great [...]

     Rome was the end of the journey for the weary apostle Paul.  After a sea journey filled with excitement, danger, and shipwreck, he landed in Italy.  He had spoken earlier to the Corinthians of the rigours of his life as an evangelist for Christ. He told of the perils in the wilderness, in [...]

“Gird up the loins of your mind” [1 Peter 1:13]      Here the apostle sets before us what should be the resolve of every Christian through grace – to guard the mind.  There is in this evil day a constant, concerted attack upon the minds of God’s people.      We are daily exposed to [...]

     What an unlikely object to be an instrument of a divine deliverance!  Samson, bound fast, was delivered into the hands of the Philistines.  Their shouts of triumph were still echoing when, bursting from his bands by the might of the Spirit, Samson wrought havoc among them with this strangest of weapons. [Judges 15:16]. [...]

     Paul was a master illustrator.  His epistles use illustrations that help impress the Gospel truth upon our minds.  In each one he gives as it were a gift-wrapped package.  The shape of his message is clear, but he invites us to unwrap the gift to see the wonderful detail. So what seems to [...]

     Why is it that the news from the media is generally bad – murders, killings, disasters and so on?  Is this age worse than earlier ones? Probably not, but with today’s instant communications we quickly become over-loaded, not to mention depressed, with all the bad news.      Any examination of the Old Testament [...]
