It’s important to ensure we reach out to others in the ecclesia, no matter what age they may be.
Temples have been found throughout the ancient Near East. Mostly we do not have a very good idea of what and how things went on at these sites.

Biblical or human truth People have to choose for which Truth they will want to go. Are they willing to clinch to Biblical Truth, gospel Truth or to what churches are presenting as a doctrinal truth? When looking at the present world, we can find lots of people who prefer to believe in not much […]
A man testifying about the Truth The religious leaders had taken care that the Nazarene master teacher could be caught and led from Caiaphas to the hall of judgment (into the Praetorium).

In the Bible, people are spoken of as souls, living beings, in which case one could also think of soul and body as individuals. Those believing souls, as churchgoers, could form the ‘soul’ of the church community. Yet it had to be realised that when a soul or a person died, the Church did not […]
Man In God’s Likeness Wherein consisted the likeness of the man to his Maker? We see that it was not in that man was given to have “life in himself.” That was originally the quality of Jehovah, solely (John 5: 26), and was given by Him to the Son at His resurrection. It is also […]

In our last episode looking at 5 influential Afro-American preachers we look at the man born in Floyd County, Georgia who became a missionary Baptist preacher in Jackson, Mississippi, where he met Charles Harrison Mason in 1895 with whom C.P. Jones and two other preachers held a faith healing revival in Jackson.
Like many other leaders of the emerging Holiness Movement, C.P. did not intend to start another denomination. He urged unity under the slogan, “Denominationalism is slavery”. But the difference was too great and Mt. Helm Baptist chose a new name. Jones and C. H. Mason began calling their work the Church of God in Christ about 1899. By 1907, however, Mason was promoting speaking in tongues and Jones’ group chose the name Church of Christ (Holiness).

The return of Jesus will herald in the age to come! We do know that the Son of Man will come in His Father’s glory and that at that time there shall begin a major increase of the kingdom of God, that shall not be threatened by its enemies anymore after Lucifer’s attempt to overthrow […]
Answers Concerning Prophecies and things future #28 The Number of the Beast “His number is six hundred threescore and six”(Rev. xiii. 18). This remarkable passage of sacred Scripture has suggested a great variety of speculations.
