Matthew 6:33 is a verse that many are familiar with. It’s a verse that reminds us not to worry for the physical things we need in this life.
“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.”

In the book of the Acts of the Apostles, we read of an important vision that Peter was given. It’s a vision that has been used in christianity to teach that the unclean animals listed in the supposed superseded “Old Testament” are finally permitted to come onto the menu. However, as we examine this passage a little closer, we are going to see that this understanding actually has no legitimate basis.

To state the obvious, we’re living in a strange world at the moment! In fact, the events that we’re seeing on a global level are unprecedented, in my opinion. On top of the pandemic situation, we have an economic disaster looming – one that is going to produce world-wide change in many areas of our lives. We also see political unrest in many regions, and increasing tensions between nations that could someday erupt in all-out war.

Do you have any of the COVID-19 symptoms? A cough, a fever or shortness of breath? Are you being told that you need to self isolate? Perhaps you’re feeling fine and you’re happy just to continue life as usual. But it may be a good time to reconsider! I think there’s something our Messiah can teach us about this.

In the form of a serpent, Satan said to Eve, “Yea, has God said you shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”. Simple words, simple question, simple answer.

My brother passed away this month …
It makes life look different somehow. There’s a hollowness to it that is hard to ignore. Of course, I realise that I’m not the first one to experience this and I certainly won’t be the last.

In Isaiah 6:3 we read that seraphim in the heavenly temple cried out “Holy, holy, holy is YHWH of hosts – the whole earth is full of His glory”. Then, in Revelation 4:8, we find four strange beasts declaring day and night, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord GOD Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come”. These two passages are the only places in Scripture where we see YHWH called holy with a triple exclamation. In fact, no other attribute is declared in triple form like this. Clearly He is the Holy one! But that begs the question – what is meant by “holy”?

This is a topic that few within christianity have heard of, fewer have any real knowledge of, and almost all would view as not being required for a believer today. It concerns the wearing of tassels/fringes/tzitzit on the corners of our clothing.

We have all read that Christ is the head of the church, and have seen that many NT letters were written to the church of “such-and-such”. Indeed, the word “church/churches” is found 113 times in our NT. Added to this, is the fact that the church is the bride of Christ … isn’t it!?

“[The Bereans] were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the Word with all readiness of mind, and searched the Scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”
