After God Spoke…He Spoke”

“God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.

Salvation Through Liberation?

Part 1 The Jews in the first century were under the authority of Rome. They longed for the day that they would be freed from their oppression by the coming Messiah. So strong was their focus on physical deliverance that they rejected God’s deliverance. Even Jesus’ closest followers struggled to understand his mission (Mrk 8:31-32; 9:30). In our time, several

Stewardship of Nature

First, a warning. This article is not my usual kind of writing. Nor is it the kind of thing that is normally seen in the Gospel Herald. Stick with it. You will find it biblical and practical in the end. ………………………… My parents were both born at the beginning of the Great Depression. They grew up during that depression and

Yes and No

In order to be like our heavenly Father, Jesus teaches us to tell the truth and to keep our promises (Mt. 5:37). The words yes and no are perfectly able to convey meaning, provided that we mean what we say. This is so both for us and for God. Now it is rare for us to question the will of

Our One Blossom Rose Bush

We have a rose bush beside the driveway. I am not expert on roses; but it seems to be different from other rosebushes I have seen in the past. As I recall, most rosebushes produce flowers repeatedly during the warm weather. They also produce several flowers at once. Since we now live in an area that rarely has frost, one

Growing in the Knowledge of our Lord

MY DEPARTURE WILL BE SWIFT

2 Peter 1:12-15 In Peter’s second and final book he penned in the New Testament, his words are not only strong and insightful, but also personal and tender. Verses 12-15 of the first chapter along with the first two verses of the second display the latter characteristics. Peter was nearing the end of his life on earth. He had gone

The Nature of Biblical Inspiration

“For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For when he received honour and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son, with whom

What is God Doing about Evil?

2nd Peter 2: 1-11 Has it ever seemed to you that God is not doing much at all to curb or to punish evil? That perspective is not new and the injustice of runaway evil is as old as history itself. It seems harder and harder for Christians not to be swallowed whole by a world estranged from God. The

2 Peter 3:3–18 From Genesis 1:1 throughout the ages until now, we are familiar with God’s creation of the heavens and earth around and above us. God asserts and reminds us many times from Genesis to Revelation that He is the Creator of the heavens and the earth. In Isaiah 65 and 66, 2 Peter 3 and Revelation 21, however,
