Stooping down to pick up nothing

Have you ever wondered how incredible and enjoyable your life would be if you won the lottery? ‘You’ve got to be in to win it!’ – as they say. Is wealth, though the true source of a happy, satisfying and Godly life? Can we learn some extremely valuable lessons from a man who dedicated his entire life to this very question?

Feasts of the Lord

Feasts of the Lordby Bill Bradford

Are you making excuses to not keep the annual Holy Days of God? They are inconvenient to your work schedule, holiday time or interrupt other of your commitments? God’s commands for His people will always be in conflict with the way of life the world demands. What would your commitments be that God’s commands can be ignored?

A fast commanded by God

Why, you may ask. Today is the Day of Atonement. Did you know we are commanded to fast on the Day of Atonement? What is the significance of fasting on this very special Holy Day?

Godly wisdom

Godly wisdomby Bill Bradford

Godly wisdom

Many go through life never knowing about one of the greatest freely given gifts -- and one we are told to ask for: "If any of you lacks wisdom ....". We are told that God possessed wisdom before anything was ever created and before He embarked on His great work to have children for Himself. We don't naturally have Godly wisdom. We are told we should ask for, indeed, seek for this kind of wisdom from the only source available – God Himself.

Is polygamy acceptable to God?

Is polygamy acceptable to God?by Ken Murray

Is polygamy acceptable to God?

Is Polygamy sin? Does God command one thing but allow sin through polygamy?

While polygamy was practised by some of the Patriarchs and was permitted by the oriental culture and civil laws of their times, it clearly was not the ideal marital relationship blessed and approved by God. It is not even an acceptable practice in many modern cultures that permit casual living together and easy-to-obtain divorce.

God speaks and commands clearly against polygamy.

The power of the Passover

We need forgiveness of sin more than we need anything else. The power of the Passoverby Bill Bradford

The power of the Passover

The man knew it was to be soon. The results of His teachings and works astounded people at the beginning. But, slowly, things began to change. The storm clouds were brewing. At the beginning He was popular, new, refreshing. Lame people walked at His Word. Lepers were cleansed, the blind were able to see for the first time, loved ones were raised from their deathbeds, and good news was declared to them as it came from God.

When Jesus came on the scene He preached a message of hope and deliverance.

What is the law of the rain?

Rain, in the Word of God is something God sends or withholds. What is the law of the rain?by Bill Bradford

What is the law of the rain?

Our weather scientists are able to explain weather patterns that affect our great agricultural industry in Australia. They are able to predict the amount of moisture we will receive from year to year through measurement of ocean temperatures, among other data. Predicting life giving rain leaves out one great factor. Rain, in the Word of God is something God sends or withholds.

The key

The keyby Richard Bent

The key

As he walked, Henry could feel the weight of the old brass key in his pocket. His mind drifted back to that day over a year ago to when he received the key.

Henry had gone away to enjoy the sights and attractions of the world. But he found no real happiness and contentment in those activities. It was only when he returned home to his Father that he had peace of heart and mind.

The letter read "My dear son, ever since you left all those years ago, my greatest desire has been for you to someday return home to us and to put God once again in your life. This key opens a box that is on the shelf behind my desk in the workshop office. It contains my most precious possessions. They are yours whenever you need them."

Do you have a 'Key' which will open the way back to your, our Father? Isn't it time you used it to return home?

  • Are We Alone?

    Are We Alone?

    Fifty years ago this month U.S. astronauts left the shining blue ball of earth and walked on the moon for the first time.

What drives this quest to learn and explore? Do we really even understand that what we’re really searching for is our place in the universe, why we exist and our ultimate destiny? In this issue we explore these topics and many more! Download this issue in PDF or read online.

    Easter

    Many believers celebrate Easter as a way to honour Jesus Christ's resurrection. But Easter's roots stretch long ago into pre-Christian paganism. The Bible alone shows a different set of celebrations—the Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread—that give us the story Easter doesn't.
