“Parteth the hoof……and cheweth the cud” [Leviticus 11:3] What are the distinguishing marks of a Christian?  Sikhs and religious Jews are recognized by their dress. Moslems, by their uses of “Peace be upon him” when speaking of Mohammed.  But how does one recognize a Christian?  This verse gives us a hint. The Lord put a [...]

The children of Israel, not long after leaving Egypt in the exodus, began to grumble and complain.  Their beef?  Lack of food.  The Lord miraculously provided quails to eat.  Then followed the amazing miracle of “Manna” [Exodus 16].  Not too many people realize how great a miracle that was. We have a fair idea [...]

We have just spent a blessed three days in special prayer for our Church, School and Country.  There is a wonderful encouragement to prayer in Exodus 17.  The children of Israel were just a few weeks out of Egypt when they faced their first war situation with the Amalekites.  Moses put the army under [...]

Jenny Lind (1820-1887), the world-renowned Swedish soprano, was invited by her king to sing in the royal palace at a festival. It was to be held on a Sunday, and her conscience would not allow her to do it on the Lord’s Day. The king visited her in person and pleaded with her to [...]

A little girl who had just returned from Sunday school was asked by her mother, “What did the teacher tell you today?”  The little girl answered that she had heard about a wonderful man called Enoch [Genesis 5:24] and how he walked with God.  She said, “Every day Enoch visited God, and they went [...]

A year has passed since we first heard of Covid19.  In the beginning, it did not seem such a big thing and showed signs that it might not last too long.  But then the second wave hit and the infections and deaths multiplied.  It shows little sign of being over soon.  God’s [...]

We wish all our readers a Happy New Year although the prospects may not seem great with Covid19 still hanging around.  Hopefully, the Lord will step in and turn things around.  But Happy New Year is on the lips of most people as a genuine expression of hope. This raises the question, [...]

THE FULNESS OF CHRIST “In Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” [Colossians 2:9] The ability to package immense Bible truths within a very few words was a gift given Paul by the Holy Spirit.  And probably no greater example is found than this statement that in Christ dwelleth all the [...]

In our Bible reading we must pay heed to “All of the counsel of God”  [Acts 20:27].  Some Christians will return to their favourite portions of Scripture to the exclusion of the rest.  That is one reason why it is good to read right through the Bible from beginning to end.  We [...]
