Poverty and Riches; Trials and Rewards
Revelation 2:8-11 Taking a break from our series in Matthew, we look at the second letter to the churches in Revelation 2. The church at Smyrna was knowing great tribulation and there was more to come. We look at * The nature of the trials they faced * The comfort that

We consider the clarity of Scripture and begin to look at interpretation of the Bible.
The Final Warning Against Apostasy
Hebrews 12:25-29 In some of the most sobering words in Scripture, we are warned not to turn back from following Christ. We are shown that for us to do that, having come to understand something of the Gospel of God’s grace, is far more serious than it was to turn away fro
The 12 Apostles
Matthew 10:2-4 We examine the listing of the names of the 12 Apostles that Jesus chose. We see: * They were clothed with authority by Christ – Scriptures were to come through them. * They were not forgotten by the Lord for all their labors for Him. * They were ordinar
