Update, 1 May, 2024: This year is turning out to be a challenging time for the Church of God. The pressures to change and conform to the world are even greater than before. Many congregations and even whole denominations are being ripped apart by the forces of evil in the world, causing division on topics from homosexuality and transgenderism to the very definition of what is considered sin. We must resist the OUTSIDE forces, which have managed to invade and settle within the Church itself, portraying themselves as honest, caring, loving, and even reflective of Christ's forgiving nature. NOTHING could be further from the truth, particularly when they are advocating views, beliefs, and doctrine that is in direct contradiction to what scriptures say and teach. Resistance is the clarion call for all true believers in the faith. But we must do so without succumbing to rancorous behaviour and destructive language. We must resist with the truth, relying upon scripture to be our guide.

It is our desire to help you see and understand the importance of recognizing what is happening right before our eyes, and to begin prayerfully seeking God's guidance and discerning the signs of the times for what they portend that is on the horizon and approaching with each passing day.

We hope we can help you learn, understand and grow in your faith and knowledge of the things of God as we walk into and through these End Times.

United In One Name, Spirit And Baptism

As Christ approached His final days on earth, knowing that He would be leaving behind His disciples, He prayed to the Father:

John 17:11: Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be ONE as We are."
20: I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;
21: that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be ONE in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
22: And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that THEY MAY BE ONE just as We are one:
23: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

Jesus had spoken to and prepared His disciples for His crucifixion at the hands of ungodly men and the fate of the disciples following after:

Matt. 26:31: Then Jesus said to them, "All of you will be made to stumble because of Me this night, for it is written: 'I will strike the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.'" (quoting the prophet Zechariah's prophecy, Zech. 13:7).

Christ commanded Peter to build up the rest of the disciples in the aftermath of this scattering.

Luke 22:31: And the Lord said, "Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat.
32: But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, STRENGTHEN YOUR BRETHREN."

Jesus, ever the loving Shepherd, out of His great love for His disciples had further instructed Peter to 'feed his lambs, tend his sheep and feed his sheep' (John 21:15-17). He had appointed Peter as the leader and shepherd of both of His flock of his disciples and of those which would be added to the flock as a result of hearing the word of the Gospel the disciples would preach. It was a sobering responsibility and a daunting mission.

The Brood Of Vipers

By Geoff Arnold

* * * * * * *

In Matthew chapter 3 we are introduced to John the Baptist. He has been preaching in the desert for an unspecified time calling people to repentance. Now, an interesting thing is taking place here, to be sure, and there is one particular passage (among many others) that has always stood out to me...

Matt: 3:5: Then Jerusalem, all Judea, and all the region around the Jordan went out to him.

Read this verse again. Did you catch it? Jerusalem - and ALL Judea, and ALL the region around the Jordan were going out to him. This man was getting the attention of the entire Southern kingdom, Jerusalem and points east. People were walking upwards of five days or more to come see and hear John speak, preach, and perhaps to be baptised.

And he also caught the attention of the Pharisees as well...

Matt. 3:7-9: But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “Brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance, and do not think to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.

The Pharisees were worried, even terrified, because John was attracting so much attention. They did not like what he was preaching because it was contrary to what they taught (even though Jesus later tells His disciples to do what they taught, but not to do what they themselves practiced - ref.: Matt. 23). This is the very thing John was speaking against: the practices of the religious authority in Israel, that they were flagrantly in violation of the Law they taught and preached in synagogue every Sabbath. In addressing them, John is telling them exactly who and what they are before God - and yet calls for them to repent, holding no malice against them should they humble themselves and repent before the people and submit that they had indeed been practicing things against the very Law they were charged to represent and uphold.
