A Summary Doctrinal Statement

The Book

We believe the King James Bible to be Read More...a faithful translation of the inspired Word of God, preserving it for the English speaking world. We also recognize that the underlying original language texts are valuable as aids in interpretation and application. ...Read Less

The Blood

We believe the shed blood of Christ is Read More...the only basis of our redemption. It is the all sufficient and exclusive provision for the sins of the world (Hebrews 9:12, 22)....Read Less

The Blessed Hope

We believe that Christ is coming Read More... back to the earth, at the end of the Seven Year Tribulation Period, to establish His kingdom on earth (The Revelation 19, 20). But first, He shall come into the air above, just prior to that Tribulation Period, to catch away His Bride, the Church, in the event we term, "The Rapture" (I Thessalonians 4:13-17), also called the "Blessed Hope" (Titus 2:13). ...Read Less

Biblical Separation

We believe that a Christian has a Read More... perfect standing before God, in Christ, and should progressively bring his conduct into conformity to that honorable position (I Peter 1:14-16).

What In This World Is God Doing?

A series of articles designed to correlate current events with Bible Prophecy. They are all a kind of commentary on that which is prophesied in the Word of God. Many events we are seeing today are the very things Bible believing preachers have been predictively declaring for decades.

Your comments and questions are always welcomed and answers not returned personally will be contained in future commentary.

What Wise Men Do

The Wise Men, as recorded in Matthew 2:1 – 12, sought the new born Messiah. The star appeared in their Persian sky, disappeared, and reappeared in the Palestinian sky, and so led them to the very first childhood residence of the Prophesied One. They were wise to seek Christ, as has been profusely pointed out by preachers of every age. The star was no surprise to them. These students, propagators of Nimrod’s religion, had been looking for it ever since the prophet Daniel had so instructed their predecessors, in the days of the Babylonian Captivity.

In their earthly wisdom, doubtless for political reasons, they reacted in a commendable fashion. They:

  1. Beheld Him (Verse 11a). The prophet Isaiah commands the same action from every earthling (Isaiah 45:22), and is echoed by John the Baptist: “…Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). It is the Look of Salvation.
  2. Bowed Before Him (Verse 11b). Every soul must one day bow to Jesus, The Messiah. Do it now to your deliverance, or later, to your eternal damnation (Philippians 2:9 – 11). It is the Bowing of Worship.
  3. Brought Him Gifts (11c). God does not grant salvation based on your gifts to Him, but by His gift to you (John 3:16). It is all of grace. For the believer, however, He wants one gift from you: You! Romans 12:1 declares it. It is the sacrificial Gift of Consecration.

Jesus told his enquirers, “…Come and see” (John 1:39).
