I hear some of our young preachers preach a sermon without giving the plan of salvation, shouldn’t this be preached with every sermon wouldn’t it be incomplete without it is this pleasing to God?

Op-Ed: Expose: The Vatican – PLO Pact

Feb 13th, 2012 | By | Category: Signs of the Times (click on article name)

There is a deep reason for Vatican opposition to Israel’s possessing the Old City. The Roman Catholic Church believes Israel’s right to be the Kingdom of God ended forever with the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple by the Roman Legion in 70 CE. Israel’s rebirth challenged Catholicism’s “Kingdom of God” when Jerusalem “the eternal” became the capital of Israel in 1967.

Isaiah Chapter 65: Sins of Israel, The Kingdom Come

Jan 10th, 2012 | By | Category: Isaiah, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

Although these are valuable lessons for the Christian, when verse 24 is considered in context, it shows that there will be prayer in the Kingdom Age. Jesus said, “It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer” (Matt. 21:13). Truly the Third Temple will be a “house of prayer for all people” (Isa. 56:7). While the Kingdom will be an age of sight and works, as opposed to the age of faith now, prayer will always be in order.

I am the Vine, ye are the branches

Intelligent people consider it very wise and proper that several years of study be devoted to preparation for the few years of earthly life. How much study, then, should be considered proper for our preparation for the eternal life and kingdom blessings?

Hebrews Chapter 6: Crucifying Christ Afresh, God’s Promise to Abraham

Jan 6th, 2010 | By | Category: Hebrews, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

Starting with chapter 2, this theme of guarding against letting the truth slip seems to be one of the burdens of the early portion of the Book of Hebrews, for a person’s retrieval becomes more and more difficult the longer the slippage takes place. Paul had just mentioned the basic doctrines of baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and age-lasting judgment, but he said that the Christian should go on and progress into deeper truths. Paul seems to be suggesting that those who are familiar with these doctrines and have consecrated, thus having “tasted” of these good things to come, have a great responsibility. Sometimes years pass before a departure takes place, but how dangerous it is!

1 Corinthians Chapter 15: Resurrection of Jesus and his Bride, Second Coming and Reign

Nov 30th, 2009 | By | Category: 1 & 2 Corinthians, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

During the permission of evil, God has been exercising His great power of the universe with the one exception of planet Earth, where His power is exercised only within certain limits. For example, not one of the consecrated can die before it is his or her time. With regard to the public at large, God’s will is not recognized as being done on earth, yet He is aware of all that happens. When He reigns forever and ever, the exercise of His will on earth will be recognized.

Acts Chapter 23, 24, 25: Sadducees and Pharisees conspire against Paul, Brought before Felix

Nov 23rd, 2009 | By | Category: Acts, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

The chief captain, whose name was Claudius Lysias, wrote how the Jews had accused Paul and “laid wait” for him. Evidently, the chief captain contacted the Jews who had been conniving to assassinate Paul, telling them to bring formal charges (if they felt they had any) before Felix, the governor. The short letter may have been recorded word for word because the Romans were noted for their brevity of speech. “Farewell” marked the end of the letter. Incidentally, the Gospel of Mark, written for the Apostle Peter, was set forth in an abbreviated form to appeal to the Romans.
