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.

Great Opportunities Misused

Nov 17th, 2009 | By | Category: Special Features (click on Article name)

Saul’s difficulty, which led to all this disaster, was his selfishness—and he was not unusually selfish either. The great majority of mankind are equally selfish— self-willed; and the great majority, like him, make a failure of whatever possibilities were before them at the first. As David’s career illustrates the wisdom and advantage of an early consecration to the will of the Lord, and the blessing which must surely attend such a course—even though those blessings be accompanied with trials and difficulties—so Saul’s course in a general way illustrates the error of those who measurably ignore the Lord and attempt to direct their own paths. Such will surely find themselves misled by their selfish ambitions as Saul was by his.

Deuteronomy Chapter 18 Levites, Witchcraft, Promise of Messiah, False Prophets

Jul 30th, 2009 | By | Category: Deuteronomy, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

The clause “thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations” stands out. There is a limit in trying to exercise supposedly goodwill toward others in allowing them to express their opinions. We must be careful because wrong doctrines are seductive. It is not sufficient to tolerate them and allow them to exist by giving a deaf ear. The danger in being too liberal is that lo and behold, before we know it, they can become a part of our daily living. The compromising attitude is very dangerous.

Christendom in Great Danger

Jul 6th, 2009 | By | Category: Special Features (click on Article name)

It is because Christendom as a whole –though nominally a wheat field, is practically a tare field with a scattering of wheat intermingled, that there is to be such a commotion in connection with the separation of the wheat and the tares. True, the Lord who knoweth the heart, who knoweth them that are His, could easily separate them from the others, but He has chosen to make a separation publicly to demonstrate His own justice in the matter. Hence in this harvest time–at the proper time to separate the wheat from the tares–the Lord not only sends the sickle of Truth to gather the wheat, but He also sends the strong delusions to gather the tares.
