An incomparably helpful step towards finding personal peace is to believe in God. The Bible claims to be the word of God, and there are very strong evidences to verify that claim. It reveals that God exists and is the all-knowing and all-powerful Creator who will reward those who believe in Him. This runs counter…Details
Christ’s return is a certainty
Did you realise that Jesus Christ is going to come a second time to fulfil his destiny to be King of the world? His return will be at a time of world crisis and perplexity. He himself predicted this. “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 “men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of heaven will be shaken. 27 “Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.28 “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke 21:25-28.
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 its toll on those who cling doggedly to power for many years – often because of a malevolent lust for continued authority, privilege and financial gain.
Jesus Christ will be a world leader with none of these deficiencies. The purpose of his personal return is to establish God’s worldwide Kingdom on earth. When this happens the failings of human leadership will be swept away and Christ will rule the whole world with infallible insight and incorruptible righteousness.
Christ’s second coming is referred to over 300 times in the New Testament, and many times in the Old Testament as well. We can be certain that he will return literally, personally and visibly. Other Bible predictions have been fulfilled with remarkable accuracy. So, if you’re going to take your Christian faith seriously, you need to be aware of what the Bible teaches about his certain return, the important reasons why he is coming again, and what you need to do to be prepared for it.

The world faces many apparently insoluble problems today – unsustainable population growth, climate change, increasing water and food shortages, economic and financial stress, worsening social unrest and violent lawlessness. Responsible national governments have cause to be gravely worried. Take the exponential world population growth in the 20th and 21st centuries for a start*. From less…Details

Vast numbers of people today have little or no idea of the content of the Bible.

God’s promises hold out wonderful possibilities for us. They are detailed in the Old Testament, and confirmed and elaborated on in the New Testament.

Responsible world governments are deeply worried. Tensions between the U.S.A. and expansionist China appear to be threatening the stability of the world economy. Tensions have also heightened between the U.S.A. and an increasingly nationalistic Russia.

Yes, Jesus Christ is alive today. There is strong evidence for the fact that he was resurrected to life. 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. They tried to spread the rumour that Christ’s disciples…Details
If you attend a church, or perhaps intend to do so, it’s probable that you believe that there is a God and that Jesus Christ is His Son. If that is so, then it’s really important to understand what God has revealed about Himself and His purpose in His inspired word, the Bible. God’s word…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. It’s a consistent record…Details
