    To deal with our guilt we need to stand before God, know his choice of us receive God’s forgiveness and receive his acceptance in Jesus Christ

    I want to talk today about guilt. You’ve no doubt all felt it from time to time. Some probably more than others. It’s one of the two great motivators of our modern life. Just look at the ads you see on TV. If you analyse them you’ll find that most of them use either greed, in one of it’s many ...read more

    God’s work will depend on his power, not just on our ability or resources

    We come today to what is the central theme of the book of Zechariah; to the question of the completion of the Temple and how this is to be accomplished. What we find here is a vision (vs1-4), a message from God (6-10a), and an explanation, to some extent at least, of the vision (10b-14). You ...read more

    As you look around the world it’s easy to think to yourself, "Why doesn’t God do something?" Whether it’s East Timor, or Kosovo, or Rwanda not so long ago, whether it’s the rising level of AIDS around the world, or young children dying of cancer, or other people dying on the roads, whether it’s ...read more

    God is a God who scatters those who oppose him, but who brings back those who belong to him.

    As we come to chapters 7&8 of Zechariah we move from an account Zechariah’s visions to the central narrative section of the book.

    God will overthrow those who are opposed to him, his appointed leader will take his place over the people, and the rule of God will extend to the whole earth until all those who were cut off have been brought back to worship God in Jerusalem.

    As we come to chs 9 & 10 of Zechariah it might be helpful to know that the book is divided into 3 parts: 1-6: Visions God says: return to me and I will return to you I will judge the nations rebuild Jerusalem forgive your sins raise up godly leaders bring ...read more

    The failure of the leaders God has placed over his people will result in the nation suffering as well as the leaders being judged.

    If you were here last week you may remember that ch 10 of Zechariah talks about God the Shepherd, who promises to care for his flock. The reason he has to do that himself is because the leaders of Israel have failed. Well, Zechariah continues that theme in ch11 as he talks about this failure of ...read more

    Here is a prophecy that tells us about God’s plan for salvation for his people, including the suffering and glorification of Jesus Christ who is to come.

    One of the difficulties people have when they first become Christians and begin studying the Bible, is what to do with the Old Testament. In fact some people never quite work that one out. It seems so foreign doesn’t it? It’s full of stories of wars; of God’s favouritism towards the people of ...read more
