  • There are many interpretations of the Book of Revelation

    The word “Revelation” translates the Greek word apokaplypsis, which is an unveiling or disclosing of reality that previously has not perceived. This apocalypse came from God through Jesus Christ, whose past, present and future position and work makes up the content of the revelation communicated to John by an angel (22:16). The purpose of this book is to show his servants what must take place between the first and second coming of Jesus. The entire message is to be signified (said through signs).

  • Remember God is with us

    One problem we face many times is a malfunction of our memory. We remember what we are supposed to forget and forget what we should remember.

    God says, “Your sins and your iniquities will I remember no more.” Yet many Christians are shackled with the memory of sins that God has already forgotten. Paul said, “Forgetting those things which are behind,” and yet many are chained to failures and mistakes of the past. We need a poor memory when it comes to sins that God has already forgiven, buried and forgotten.

  • Worry is unscriptural

    We have the notion that things can give us peace, but in reality they create worry. Do you remember the thrill of your first car? You could not rest until your name was on the Bill of Sale. Then you discovered the headache of taking care of your car and meeting the payments.

    King Solomon said, “People who work hard sleep well, whether they eat little or much. But the rich are always worrying and seldom get a good night’s sleep” (Ecclesiastes 5:12 NLT).

  • Fear not - even when times are grim

    Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep those things which are written in it, for the time is near. Revelation 1:1-3

    John wrote to disclose the revelation he had of Jesus Christ and the intense spiritual warfare the church would face before Christ’s ultimate victory over the enemy. John’s revelation contains many images and symbols to help us understand the otherwise indescribable spiritual events he saw.

  • Christianity chosen from many options

    Do you have a religion? I do. I follow Christianity. Some people follow Islam. Others follow Buddhism. These are religions worth learning about.

    It was during the middle ages that Christianity became popular. It became a political power in Western Europe in 500 A.D. Christians believe that Jesus, the son of God, was sent to Earth and died on the cross to save humanity. Through faith in Jesus, one can be saved from God’s punishment. Believers go to Heaven and have eternal life with God. This is very similar to another religion, Islam.

  • Jesus came to earth to minister to man

    Jesus said, “The Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister.”  He also said to his disciples, “So send I you.” He had a ministry and so do we as Christians.

    In 1 Peter 3:18-22 Peter speaks of Jesus’ ministry. First, he spoke of the death of Christ. He was the “Just One” who was treated unjustly. Why? That he might die for the unjust and bring them to God he died as a substitute for us (2:24). Peter tells us that Jesus suffered for well-doing and not because of any sins he committed (2:22).

  • Winter makes spring more inviting

    “For we know that all things work together for good, to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

    “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”

  • No one understands like Jesus

    It is interesting to note in the gospels the blending of the humanity and divinity of Jesus. Jesus was in a boat with the disciples. Weary, he fell asleep. A storm caused the disciples to wake him asking, “Master, don’t you care that we perish?” Jesus rose and said, “Peace be still!” The waters obeyed his command. You can see his humanity in his tiredness and you see his divinity as the waves obey his command. The humanity and divinity of Jesus is apparent from the beginning of his ministry.

  • Meet Charlemagne, the Christian Emperor

    In 742 on a cold, blistering winter day, King Pepin III (Pepin the Short) was expecting a child. The child was named Carolus Magnus, also known as Charlemagne. Charlemagne didn’t receive proper education as a child. His childhood was overtaken by the laborious task of the activities of preparing himself to control his father’s lands.
