In uncertain times it’s nice to have some reassurance and we have loads of it in Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. For instance, he says, “he chose us in him before the foundation of the world” (Eph. 1:4) and throughout the chapter reminds us that God does all things according to his purpose which he […]

A lot of people in the world feel trapped in their homes right now. And when you do leave your house to go to the store there are restrictions on what stores are open and what you’re allowed to buy. Here in Ventura County, for instance, stores like Walmart and Target are permitted to sell […]

In some ways what the world is going through might be a little less disconcerting if we could easily see the enemy. If all the people who had the virus showed clear symptoms. If they weren’t contagious until after showing these obvious symptoms. But because it’s been so hard to diagnose, especially the asymptomatic cases, people have […]

We can’t meet as ecclesias at the moment, so perhaps this is a perfect opportunity to reflect on what true religion is all about separate from what we normally do on Sunday mornings or midweek class. It’s something the Galatian ecclesias had to think about because they were in danger of losing the Truth altogether. […]

If I told you a couple of months ago half the world would be in lock down mode along with everything else that’s happened, you probably wouldn’t have believed a time could be possible. Things like this are a once in a generation experience. I read one article which said the world hasn’t been in […]

You would think Pilate, as the representative of the Roman Empire in Judea, held a lot of power. But when faced with the Jewish crowds crying “Crucify, crucify him!” (Luke 23:21) he gave in, despite the fact he acknowledged the innocence of Jesus. Notice what it says in verse 23 – “their voices prevailed”. The […]

I’m the sort of person who feels uneasy if I am not in control of a situation. I think that’s why I suffer from aerophobia. If I was at the controls of the airplane, then I would probably feel safer. Although since I have no flight training, I wouldn’t recommend getting on the plane with […]

Our thought for the day today is just a little excerpt from the exhortation I gave this morning from Luke 21. Our Lord speaks of two periods of time, one the end of the Jewish world in AD 70, and the other the end of our world. Both times are scary, with anxiety and foreboding […]

It’s wonderful how our Lord Jesus Christ teaches. Very often he says something very puzzling, rather than just spoon feeding us information. He wants us to think, mull over his words and figure out what principles are behind his message. We have an example of that in today’s reading from Luke 20. Having just quoted Psalm […]

It’s very easy to think that what we’re experiencing with the pandemic is the beginning of the end of the world as we know it. I had the same feeling in 1991 when Saddam Hussein started sending scud missiles into Israel. I remember exactly where I was and what I was thinking – Jesus is […]
