A Home Away From Home
Reading – 2 Kings 4:8-17
“You have gone to all this trouble for us. Now what can be done for you?” –2 Kings 4:13 –
Shunem was a small town. A wealthy woman who lived in the village offered her home to God’s prophet whenever he traveled through. Going far beyond the hospitality of offering a meal and bed, she had a special room built just for Elisha-a home away from home.

Open Your Gifts
By: Ray Steadman
Read the Scripture: Ephesians 4:7-10
How is the church expected to demonstrate the power of God and thus influence society? The apostle suggests clearly that the power of the church lies in all Christians discovering and intelligently exercising the spiritual gift that was given to them when they became a member of the body of Christ. That is largely a forsaken principle today, and that is why the church is so weak. If we ever recover the strength God intended the church to exert in human society, it will be by a return to that simple thing, the exercise of each person’s spiritual gift.

Newsletter-What Are The Keys Of Death?

What Are The Keys Of Death?

Question: “What are the keys of death (Revelation 1:18)?”

Answer: In Revelation 1:18 Jesus says, “I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.” Possessing the “keys of death” means that the risen Christ has control and authority over death. In John 10:17-18, Jesus says, “The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life-only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again.

Newsletter-Why God’s Promises are Really Great, By: James McDonald

Why God’s Promises are Really Great
By: James McDonald

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. -2 Peter 1:3-4
When the apostle Peter mentions how God “has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness,” he can’t help but look forward to the way God will follow through on His “precious and very great promises.” The word great means more than size. It’s also a measure of quality, and this dual understanding applies to what God promises to do for us.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                To Read More Click Here

Newsletter-The Great Multitutde

The Great Multitude By: Arthur Schoonveld

Scripture Reading – Revelation 7:9-12
Before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing be-fore the throne and before the Lamb. –Revelation 7:9 –
At an outdoor worship service last summer we had a small foretaste of the apostle John’s vision described in Revelation. He saw “a great multitude that no one could count,” people from every tribe, nation, and language. The service we attended had people from different cultures and countries participating and speaking in different languages.

Newsletter-Is Your Talent Hidden? By M.S. Lowndes

Is Your Talent Hidden?
Read: Matthew 25: 14-30(NKJV)
Like in this story, we shouldn’t bury our talent. God has gifted each one of us with a particular talent. We need to use it for the benefit of the kingdom of God, so it will bless and encourage others. By allowing our talents to be utilized, not only can we have a big impact on someone else’s life, but we can also be blessed ourselves. We find great fulfilment in what we do. And we should do, for we were born for it.

Newsletter-Save The Seed

The children of Israel that entered the Promised Land had vivid, personal recollections of all the miracles and judgments that God Almighty had done among them. They remembered and were careful to walk with the Lord in faith and purity. But they failed to teach their children sufficiently about the Lord. And so the next generation was ignorant of the experiences of their parents and fell easily into sin. This new generation did not have a personal relationship with God, and were not true believers. However, many of the judges did genuinely know the Lord, and some who did not initially live by faith eventually threw themselves on God’s mercy.
