Baptism In The Holy Spirit
For Gifts? For Power? or For Life!?

Some say that this is to impart ‘spiritual gifts’ to us. Others think that it is a more general ’empowering for service’. Others still say that this is to bring us into a ‘deeper holiness’. Astonishingly I have even heard it said that God doesn’t baptize anyone in His Spirit anymore! Is this a ‘second blessing’ or are ‘new birth’ and ‘spiritual baptism’ one and the same thing?

The Monologue Culture
PART 2 – Word Study: PREACH

There are a variety of Greek words used in the New Testament which are translated as: ‘PREACH’, ‘TEACH’ and ‘EXHORT’. I shall not attempt an exhaustive study of every last one but with the use of a Strong’s Concordance and other Bible Dictionaries it is easy to see and summarise the main words that are used and see them in their context.

Revelation, Four Views, A Parallel Commentary
Steve Gregg

What a treasure! Thank you Mr Gregg for all your hard work in piecing together and laying out side-by-side the four main understandings of The Revelation. Whilst I do not have absolute hard and fast opinions of how The Revelation should be interpreted I am continually concerned about the excessive dogma and combined ignorance of so many people where this most difficult book of The Bible is concerned…

Come With Me Through Isaiah
David Pawson

Have you ever met a Christian who set out to read the Bible cover-to-cover and got stuck in Leviticus!? It’s a familiar story isn’t it?

Strong’s Concordance
James Strong

I was handed a Strong’s concordance as a gift when I was a young believer. Apparently, the one I have was dropped on the floor at the distribution centre where my friend worked and was either sold-off cheap or given to him free. If you’ve seen this book, any version of it, you’ll know that dropping one could easily cause some damage. This book is big…

Wesley The Preacher
