Eternity to Eden
Some start at the beginning when seeking to answer the question 'why church?'. But did you know the real answer starts BEFORE the beginning? Listen in to see how come?
Introduction: To One of the Least of These
How do we establish a healthy ecclesiology? By looking through The Bible, we will begin to see God has integrated 'the assembly' into his plan for establishing the the faithfulness and maturity of his people.
Cutting Through the Cultural Blindspots
What prevents the Israelites from enjoying a close relationship with the Lord? The final call again is that Israel would repent and turn back to the Lord.
Is All Fair in Love and War
Are we to be blamed if our heart does not desire the Lord? Hosea writes to Israel and to us all that we remain responsible for reciprocating God's love and commitment to us.
A harvest of barrenness
What are you investing in your future? Hosea has some home truths for Israel who believe their future is looking bright. Their investment in the idol calves and king and military will come to nothing as they have not looked to the Lord first.
What are you like continued
Has anyone made a comparison of your behaviour with something less than flattering? Hosea gives Israel an uncompromising view of their behaviour towards the Lord in the hope that it will correct them. Maybe we might also identify some of our own behaviour towards the Lord in this striking text.
What are you like
Have you ever noticed how someone can plead their undying love one moment only for it to come to a short end the next moment. Hosea exposes the shallowness of Israel's love for the Lord. For all their outward display of loyalty to the Lord they are inwardly despising him
Prone to Wander
Gods judgement is discipline and His desire is to correct us. The discipline of God is so that we can return to the Lord. This is what Hosea 5 is all about - Actions have consequences.
Why speak of a future with those who grievously offend us? God demonstrated His unrelenting love in declaring His resolve to rekindle the love of his unfaithful people Israel.
Intro and Hosea Family Portrait
Did you ever hear the song 'In Love with a Stripper?' This could have been the soundtrack to Hosea's marriage, but worse. As we begin this new series we learn of God's relentless, rescuing love in the face of persistent rejection.
The Resurrection that Frees us from Sin
Is the resurrection of Christ Jesus a historic event that just gives us hope for the future? Paul reminds us that the resurrection of Jesus has freed us now from the power of sin.
SOMEBODY HAS TO PAY
Can you afford to pay for your own sin? Someone has to. Imagine that God's word shows he has always demonstrated his love by paying the ultimate price for our sin.
I AM BARABBAS
I am Barabbas .. can you say it? It may feel like a negative confession, but the spirit of the age may cause us to be robbed of seeing how Barabbas truly represents us, therefore dimming our view of God's grace in Jesus as our substitute.
Does the eschatological end of the gospel register with your Christian walk? The apostle John challenges us to establish our Christian witness by our looking forward to the Lord's return and by living faithfully until that day.
Dwelling with God
What will it be like to live with God literally? God reveals His purpose to personally sustain His own in the eternally peaceful new heaven and earth where nothing evil can be found.
The Penultimate of Human History or the End
God has vindicated himself and his people by finally judging the World for its rebellion against him and his people. Victory for believers, devastation for the lost.
Good Vs Evil
What do you believe defines a good or bad person? Morality, from a biblical perspective, is not primarily centred on how well I treat other people but on acknowledging and loving God. In this chapter John captures this struggle of Good Vs Evil in the symbolism of the woman and her children being pursued by the dragon.
Sound the Alarm Another Person is Suffering
Series: Apocalypse Now Are we really to expect that the world will only drastically deteriorate in the last seven years of history? When considered, in the light of Jesus' own teaching, are the trumpet plagues already effecting the world?
Palaces, Parliaments, Presidential Houses, the Politburo and Paradise
How comfortable would you be in a place where the worship of God was central to every mode of life? The sovereign triune God is coming to reclaim the world but only the faithful will be able to abide his presence.
He Who Has Ears
To whom do you think John wrote the letters to seven churches in Asia? We can easily banish an ancient letter to history without realising that it has a prophetic effect as a pastoral message for us today.
