Yes, Jesus Christ is alive today. There is strong evidence for the fact that he was resurrected from death. For a start, no one could produce a corpse to prove otherwise, even though the religious rulers of the day would dearly have loved to do so. Christ’s frightened and disillusioned company of disciples were transformed…Details
God’s future world government
The world faces many apparently insoluble problems today – unsustainable population growth, climate change, increasing water and food shortages, economic and financial stress, increasing social unrest and violent lawlessness. Responsible world governments are deeply worried. Highly dangerous situations continue to be prominent in the Middle East, in the Korean Peninsular, in the South China Sea and in European nations bordering Russia. Peaceful coexistence between the major powers is under threat. Furthermore, extremist religious terrorism can strike anywhere – even in Australia, as already experienced in an increasing number of nations.
United States and Russian intervention in the Syrian civil war with their opposing aims has brought their relationship to a point that could lead to an all-out war between them that would also involve their associated client states. The movement of NATO troops into nations bordering Russia further heightens tension between the western powers and Russia. These two situations have revived the dangerous “cold war” situation of former decades. These and other threats to world peace are leading to the curtailment of principles that have governed western democracies for decades. They have led to the election of “nationalistic” leaders and governments. These divisive developments have the potential to lead to more widespread ruinous warfare and the potential use of nuclear weaponry.
There can be no solution to these growing threats to world peace without the supremacy of Almighty God and His righteousness. God’s inspired word, the Bible, predicts that the world will emerge from insoluble crisis to become a glorified and peaceful place. The Bible tells us repeatedly that Christ the Son of God will return to earth at a time of unprecedented crisis to establish God’s Kingdom. He will reign over the entire world, vanquish evil and achieve peace on earth. God’s word summarises the outcome of His intervention in world affairs:
“And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.” Daniel 2:44

Unlikely as it may seem in view of today’s world being troubled by so many tensions and conflicts, the world is destined for a time of peace on an unprecedented scale. How will this be achieved? So many well-meaning human efforts have been made to accomplish this and yet have failed. Today, highly dangerous situations…Details
Did you realise that Jesus Christ is going to come a second time to fulfil his destiny to be King of the world? Ordinarily, so called “world leaders” come and go – whether good, bad or mediocre. None of them actually “lead” the whole world. They are all fallible and all temporary. Mortality inevitably takes…Details
Vast numbers of people today have little or no idea of the content of the Bible, let alone believe in its contents. There are some churches which claim to have the Bible as the sole authority for their beliefs. Other churches (some very large ones at that) claim that the authority of their leaders, or…Details
The Bible claims to be the word of God – God’s inspired revelation of Himself and His Son, and His plan for the world. The Bible’s claim to truth is confirmed by its many future predictions that have actually come to pass – particularly predictions about Jesus Christ and God’s people Israel. This reassures us…Details

The people of Israel are described in the Old Testament as “God’s witnesses” (Isaiah 43 vv10&12). God, we’re told, chose Israel not because of their importance but because He loved them. The Old and New Testaments contain an amazingly candid record of their history, with their flaws and failings plainly revealed – a consistent record…Details
Humanism represents a way of thinking that attaches prime importance to human thinking rather than a divine or supernatural authority. In contemporary western society humanism is largely non-religious and secular and does not recognise any divine authority. One of the problems arising from this philosophy is that humanists often fail to agree about the best…Details

God’s “great and precious” promises hold out wonderful possibilities for us. They are detailed in the Old Testament, and confirmed and elaborated on in the New Testament. For instance, God’s promises to Abraham are described in the New Testament as “the gospel” and important comment stresses their relevance to us today. His promises to King…Details
