The Deep Things of Christ’s Priesthood

'For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins: Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.'

A Description of Conversion For All Time

Over nearly three years the disciples learned from Christ and came to love him, need him, and recognise him as divine. But for most, personal conversion came late in this period. Peter's vital response is a model and challenge to seekers in every age.

He Careth For You

In a decisive prayer, burdens are to be passed entirely to the Lord. Here we consider what is and what is not to be passed, and the harm and sin of keeping anxiety. Here is how the help comes, and the tremendous promise of God's care.

The True Nature of Belief (2)

'For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.'

The Spiritual War of the Soul

Paul personifies sin as an emperor who conscripts us into his army and drills us in unbelief and lust to bind us in his service. Then Paul shows how we may be 'brought out' of our bondage to walk with the Lord God.

Articles

Remember the Lord’s Day
Dr Peter Masters

Why was the sabbath day instituted by the Lord, and in what way has it changed with the coming of Christ? How should it be kept? This article responds to these and other questions, showing that the sabbath principle is still God's will for believers today, and listing its purposes and blessings.

Cessationism — Proving Charismatic Gifts have Ceased
Dr Peter Masters

Does the Bible teach definitively that the charismatic gifts have ceased? The ceasing of revelatory and sign-gifts in the time of the apostles is so plainly taught in God’s Word, that the opposite view has only seriously appeared in the last 100 years.

The Pattern for the Church
Dr Peter Masters

When we speak of the sufficiency of Scripture, we mean that the Word of God provides all that we need to know in order to be saved, to be sanctified, to worship, and to organise and operate the church of God (2 Timothy 3.16-17). It clearly shows a pattern for the church.

Against Hastening to Remove from our Post of Duty
C H Spurgeon

Do we shy away from Christian service? As the Lord's workers we should desire to glorify Him. Christian service is not about selecting the comfortable positions and the hopeful fields; it is best to make no selection, but to yield our own will to the will of God altogether.

Worship or Entertainment?

Dr Peter Masters


Where will your church be five or ten years from now? – asks the author. With the adoption of contemporary music worship many have already changed beyond recognition. Yet more will do so. Here are four essential principles which Jesus Christ laid down for worship, and by which every new idea must be judged.



Missionary Triumph over Slavery

Dr Peter Masters


We are told today that Christian missionaries of the past were tools of colonial oppression. The story of William Knibb shows how wildly wrong this is. Persecuted by British rulers in Jamaica because he opposed settlers’ abuses, he was pivotal in swinging public opinion behind legislation to end slavery.



God’s Love for Muslims

Ibrahim Ag Mohamed


This is an enlightening manual on reaching Muslims for Christ. Full of vital information, it is at the same time a real 'page turner'. Here is a wealth of counsel from a pastor with many years of experience preaching and broadcasting in a Muslim land. It will greatly equip readers for effective witness.



Should Christians Drink?

Dr Peter Masters


What are the biblical arguments which have convinced the majority of Bible believers during the last two centuries that the Lord wants His people to abstain? Why should something ‘right’ for Old Testament Israelites be ‘wrong’ for Christ’s church? What are the differences between wine of Bible times and today?
