Covenant

While the Bible is a Near Eastern Book, written first of all to, or for Semitic People, and must be understood through understanding the Near Eastern modes and customs. It is also, a record for God’s revelation to the whole human race. The Bible is a unique history book. It records the factual story of not only the origin of the entire universe but also of many of the people groups that inhabit the earth, specifically the people of Israel. But the Bible is concerned with more than just the history of people and human events. It is the history of redemption, It tells the story of why people need redemption and how redemption is accomplished. Moreover, the history of redemption in the Old Testament is marked by the ratification of the Covenants in which God affirmed His Will for His people

Israel's History

Wailing Wall CopyThe fate of the Jews, throughout centuries of unbelief, has been one of endless tragedy. Wars, famine, broken homes, political upheaval, plagues, and premature death were some of the judgments of the years of Judges and Kings and then came the deprivations of Assyrian and Babylonian captivities. There was great evidence of coldness of heart in the four hundred (400) years before Christ and there was a dispersion that spread to a worldwide proportion because of that cold heart. Even now in this present day, the dispersion continues because of the rejection of the Messiah. The slaughter of millions (1,000,000) of Jews by the Hitler regime reveals how much hatred the human race is capable of heaping upon a tribe of people.

Book of Revelation

The Book of Revelation has been called the most enigmatic book of the Bible. Believers have read it and some have been told not to read it, for they would not understand it. Many have read and studied it and come to different conclusions about its truth about the future. It is of Satan’s devices to get people to shun this Book. Obviously, he does not want us to know of his imprisonment nor of his final end, the Lake of Fire. So it is that he casts doubt on Genesis by planting in men’s minds the idea of evolution and seeks to have Revelation neglected. We must realize that without the Book of Revelation, the canon of Scripture would be incomplete. The future is revealed in it, answering questions man has had since the time of Christ. Questions about the end-time activity (eschatology) abound in the hearts of many. Speculation about the Rapture, Great Tribulation, Antichrist, and Millennium has run from one end of thinking to another. But the Book of Revelation fulfils the desire to know as it has been given to us by the Lord Jesus Christ.

Building Strong Leaders

.
It is a great honour to be given the privilege to be a spiritual leader, to be in a position where people look up to you for guidance and direction. The Body of Christ is looking for leaders who can lead other leaders in the ways of God!
Unfortunately, not all church leaders are spiritual leaders in the true sense. A true spiritual leader must be appointed and set in the office by the Lord, not by people. If a leader is set in by Divine order, he will accomplish God's Divine purposes. But, if he is set in by man, he will only accomplish man's purposes. Here are some basic ingredients of a true spiritual leader:
A. Divine Purposes
A leader must have Divine vision to accomplish the Divine purposes of God. A spiritual leader without a clear vision of what God requires of him is a blind leader. The vision will give him the strength to persevere in the face of hardships and setbacks. He will not give up even in the face of defeat, for he knows that God is able.
B. Passion for God's Work
A spiritual leader must have a passion for what he has been called to do. He must love his work. This will give inspiration to his subordinates to work with him. A leader who hates his work is in a wrong calling. He needs to step down; otherwise, he will never accomplish much.
C. Integrity
A spiritual leader must be a person of integrity; a person who is true to himself, to the Lord and to others; a leader who knows his strengths and his weaknesses. Integrity is a sign of maturity without which spiritual growth is impaired. A leader of integrity will never trim his values or principles to please others. He walks with God through thick and thin. With integrity comes trustworthiness.

How to Grow in Faith

The Christian's assurance concerning divine certainties does not lie in a code; not even in a formal creed. It lies in a simple, living faith in the true character and person of God Himself. Because God is Who He is, we can rely upon Him. He cannot lie and He cannot fail. He loves us with an everlasting love; therefore we can trust Him.

Abraham, the pioneer of faith, went out of Ur of the Chaldees, not knowing where he went. But he knew who had sent him, the eternal God. The man of faith went forward without detailed blueprints in his hands, for they were in the mind of his God.

Life itself brings shattering experiences to us all, experiences that have a way of leading us to the foundations that abide. The providence of God often upset our schematic views. In an ancient day, Job felt the blows of disaster in rapid-fire succession: resources taken away suddenly, loved ones snatched away by death, and berating and betrayal by false friends and a fickle wife. But he hung on in faith, declaring, "Though he slay me, yet will I trust in Him" (Job.3:15). Even in the darkest hour, when God seemed to elude him, he insisted, "But He knoweth the way that I take: when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold" (Job.23:10).
