Spiritual Gifts

There are three passages in the New Testament that speak about spiritual gifts. However, we need to understand what is the meaning of spiritual gifts. As natural human beings, we have many different talents that we can use at school, work, in public speaking, writing, or even in sport and music, and so on. TheseContinue reading “Spiritual Gifts”

Overview of Daniel

The book of Daniel is perhaps the most well-known of the prophetical books in the Bible. The main reason is that just about everyone who has been in Sunday School as a child grew up learning about Daniel in the lions’ den in chapter 6, which again is a very well-known Sunday School story withContinue reading “Overview of Daniel”

The Message in 2 John

Two of the shortest books in the Bible are the second and third epistles (or letters) of John, known as 2 John and 3 John. If the Bible has such short books, is there a message from God to us in these very short books, that could both be read in one sitting? There definitelyContinue reading “The Message in 2 John”

Jonah compared with Christ

The book of Jonah is a very interesting book in the Word of God. It is found in the Prophetical books, in a section that is referred to as the ‘minor prophets’. Many lessons can be learned from Jonah, who has been often called the disobedient prophet. However, what is our reaction to God callingContinue reading “Jonah compared with Christ”

Feasts in the book of Esther

It is a wonder that even though the name of God, reading the Scriptures and prayer are absent from this wonderful little book, there are feasts recorded in this book. There are three feasts, each one with a significance in the historical aspect, but each feast comes with very important lessons to learn. Following fromContinue reading “Feasts in the book of Esther”
