    The New Covenant of Grace (Part 3)

    We have compared the covenants of law and of grace, and have discussed the first three aspects of the exchange that took place on the cross of Christ: 1. Jesus was punished that we might be forgiven. 2. Jesus was wounded that we might be healed. 3. Jesus was made sin with our sinfulness that [...]

    The New Covenant of Grace (Part 2)

    In Part 1 we explored the divine exchange that took place on the cross of Jesus Christ, and we found that we may distinguish nine aspects of this exchange. Let us examine these nine aspects: 1. Jesus was punished that we might be forgiven. To a certain extent we have already dealt with this first [...]

    The New Covenant of Grace (Part 1)

    Jeremiah 31:31, 33-34 "The time is coming," declares the Lord, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel ..." "This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time," declares the Lord. "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. [...]

    Worship in Apostolic Times

    'Worship' can be defined as "the direct acknowledgement to God, of His nature, ways and claims, whether by the outgoing of the heart in praise or by deed done in such acknowledgement."

    The Fruit of the Spirit

    If we are controlled by the Holy Spirit, we bear "fruit to God"; but if we are controlled by the sinful nature, we bear "fruit for death".

    Easter or Passover - The Crucifixion of Christ

    On this day 2000 years ago Jesus was flogged, mocked and crucified to pay the penalty for our sin. Just before His death, with all our sin piled onto Him, He was so abhorrent to God the Father that He turned His face away from His beloved Son, causing Him to cry out, "My God, [...]

    Deliverance from the world through the cross of Christ

    "May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ through which the world has been crucified to me and I to the world." [1] What is meant by "the world" as used here? The Greek word 'kosmos' is used in the New Testament for three different things: Firstly, as the material [...]

    What it means to be a disciple of Jesus

    The word 'disciple' comes from the Greek word 'mathētēs' meaning a learner. A disciple was not only a pupil, but also a follower, and thus he was referred to as an imitator of his teacher.  Jesus tells us that we are His disciples if we hold to His teaching, [1] which He summarizes as: "A [...]

    The roots of Muslim hatred for Israel

    '"Come," they say, "let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more."' [1] Does that sound familiar? Actually these words were written about 3000 years ago by David, king of Israel, calling on God to destroy His enemies who thus conspired against His people.    Ahmadinijad's recent remark,  [...]
