DANIEL'S SEVENTY WEEKS

DANIEL'S SEVENTY WEEKS

All of the prophecies regarding the Messiah are written in the Torah and Tenach, which are the Old Testament Scriptures.  If the Jewish people had studied the Bible properly they would have been fully aware Jesus was the Messiah they were waiting for, and they would have known what Daniel meant when he wrote, “The Anointed One will be cut off.”  They should have known their Messiah was going to be killed.  The result of ignoring what was written in the Scriptures resulted in the terrible burning of Jerusalem, the Jews being scattered worldwide, the destruction of the second temple and the spiritual blindness that came down over them.

GOD HAS AN OPINION REGARDING SIN

GOD HAS AN OPINION REGARDING SIN

Every person in the world is a sinner and all sin needs to be repented of, confessed to God and cleansed by the blood of Jesus.  By confessing our sin to God we declare we are responsible for the sin and therefore we can work with God to overcome it.  God already knows our sins so we cannot shock Him by telling Him what we have done.  To receive forgiveness we must first repent.  Unless we repent, God will not forgive.  We must also forgive ourselves for failing Him.  There is no sin that cannot be confessed and forgiven.

FACTS ABOUT CHRISTMAS CELEBRATIONS

FACTS ABOUT CHRISTMAS CELEBRATIONS

There is no need to feel uncomfortable with celebrating Christmas as a Christian, as long as we do not worship the tree or be involved in any of the pagan rituals.  Giving gifts, resting, feasting with family, sending notes, letters and cards of goodwill and peace, and having a holiday is all good, because if we read the book of Esther, we can see the Jews celebrated Purim by feasting, giving gifts, enjoying a holiday and enjoying a good rest.  It was a time filled with gladness and they wrote letters of greeting one to another.  Their leader spoke peace to his people (Esther 9:17 to 22; 10:3).  Although Purim is during February, the concept is similar.  It is a time of family gathering and rest.  The festival the Jews celebrate in December is Hanukkah, also known as the Feast of Dedication.

THE LAST SUPPER OF JESUS

THE LAST SUPPER OF JESUS

When Jesus gave the bread and wine to His disciples at the Last Supper, He was performing the rite that had begun with Melchizedek.  Melchizedek was both king and priest as we can see in the above verse.  Jesus is also our King and Priest Who followed after the order of Melchizedek (Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 7:1).  The approximate date of the Last Supper can be worked out by reading the scriptures.  ‘This month will be to you the beginning of months.  It will be the first month of the year to you’ (Exodus 12:2).  ‘The first month is the month Nisan’ (Esther 3:7).  ‘In the first month (of Nisan), on the fourteenth day of the month is the Lord’s Passover.  On the fifteenth day of this month (Nisan) there will be a feast and for seven days you will eat unleavened bread’ (Numbers 28:16 & 17).

WISDOM OF GOD

WISDOM OF GOD

We need God’s wisdom to see from His point of view, not from a human viewpoint.  God’s wisdom is way beyond our level of understanding.  It is one aspect of the essence of our holy God and Creator.  His ways are not the same as our ways.  His thoughts are far above our thoughts (Isaiah 55:8 & 9).  If we diligently seek wisdom we will be empowered to walk in righteousness regardless of negative circumstances around us.  ‘My son, if you will receive my (wisdom’s) words and store up my commandments within you, turn your ear to wisdom and apply your heart to understanding, yes if you call out for discernment and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her (wisdom) as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.

VOTE NO - SAME SEX MARRIAGE WILL BRING GOD'S JUDGEMENT

VOTE NO SAME SEX MARRIAGE WILL BRING GOD'S JUDGEMENT

Christians, it may be possible to email or write to your politicians, local, State and Federal and voice the opinion of God.  We are His mouthpiece, we are His hands, we are His people and just like Noah, we need to stand up for righteousness.  There is no other sin that will bring the severe judgement down from God in the form of total destruction, like homosexuality and same sex marriage.  It is in our own best interests to stand against ungodly laws like these.  When somebody does turn from their evil ways, Jesus will wash away their sin. ‘If we walk in the Light as Jesus is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son, cleanses us from all sin … If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness’ (1 John 1:7 & 9).

THE BIBLE VERSION WE CHOSE IS IMPORTANT

THE BIBLE VERSION WE CHOSE IS IMPORTANT


The entire Bible was written by several Jewish people who lived over a vast period of time, within the Jewish culture and laws, they usually lived in Israel, ate kosher food, worshipped God, spoke Hebrew and honoured the written Word of God.  After Jesus established the new church about 2,000 years ago, the apostles went out to preach to Gentiles outside Israel who did not speak Hebrew so the apostles’ writings needed to be translated into various languages.  Reading a translation is in reality reading an interpretation.  Learning a new language takes years and it is not practical for everyone to be able to read the Bible in Hebrew, its original language.  If we read modern versions of the Bible, we may be surprised at how different the translations are.
