Pressing Issues

Spotlight on Sisters

Don’t try to get into a house if you haven’t got the right keys – your faulty keys won’t work! We’re talking about the ‘house’ of Christian-women-in-spiritual-ministry. This short article, in seven concise points, discovers the two master-keys and then opens up the whole subject. Much of conventional thinking on the subject is shown to be faulty and without a scriptural basis. This has often led to great hindrance in the Master’s building. As always, it is a question of “letting go” and “letting God”. Conventional thinking, if not truly springing from God’s Word must be ‘let go’ – such is the message of the Cross. After that, ‘let God’ – the message of the Resurrection! Incidentally, this includes the first person in history, commissioned to go and tell forth the news that HE is risen!

The Lord’s Day

One of the Messianic psalms, Psalm 118:22-24, prophesies concerning Messiah’s death and resurrection! In these verses, God declares the Day of Resurrection to be the “Day Made by Him”, in other words a “New Creation”. That Day was destined to be the “Day of days” – forever -, the source of, and motive for, great joy and gladness.
When Messiah died, the “Last Adam” died. When Messiah rose victoriously, the “Second Man” was born (see Paul’s references to this in 1st Corinthians 15). While the Roman world would continue to worship the ‘sun’ on the first day of the week, calling it “SUNday”, for the Redeemed, it would be the “Lord’s Day” from now on. Don’t miss the telling diagram of “All Time” right at the end.

Apostasy –

Christians Fallen Away? Or… Christians Taken Away?

In many Bible versions, 2nd Thessalonians 2:3 has the word “apostasy”. The verse is a marvelous verse, yet most readers never catch on. What really is the apostle writing about? “Apostasy” (a Greek word) means “falling away from the faith”, right? But what if that particular meaning of “falling away” is an ‘acquired meaning’, and not really what Paul was wanting to express?
Let the Lord open your eyes to the real meaning, to the original one! It will be a major boost for your insight in Bible prophecy!

Dear Pastor…

What was the secret of all those churches in New Testament times? In worship they were in touch with Heaven; in love sacrificial; in outreach dynamic; yet they had neither ‘pastors’, nor pulpits! How come?
