The Key to Understanding the Bible
The Bible is a storehouse of divine truth which will repay reading whether it be approached merely because of its literary value, its ethical teaching, or its practical bearing on everyday life (e.g. the Proverbs). But for those who are prepared to study the contents of this wonderful volume with the object of learning what God desires of them, it offers present and future blessings beyond the ability of man to assess (Rev. 1:3), for “eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him” (1 Cor.2:9). This, however requires study, that faith might be established and increased. “The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them because the are spiritually discerned” (1Cor. 2:14). With study there will be developed a love for the Book, and for its Author whose love will be revealed therein, and by this influence the Reader will be led to radiate that same love to others. Therefore, this divine Book is the greatest power for good in the hands of man – if it be read with understanding. Our objective is to place the key to its understanding in the hands of the Reader that they might better comprehend its message, and so be drawn by the power of God’s love. We trust the booklet will assist the reader to that end.
Introducing the Christadelphians
The Christadelphians are a group of people associated together by a common belief in the things concerning the Kingdom of God and the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 8:12) We claim to be the modern revival of the original apostolic faith, we make this claim because we base our beliefs exclusively upon the teaching of the Bible. The Name
Christadelphian is compounded of two Greek words: Christ and adelphoi, signifying “Brethren of Christ”. This is a term used in the bible to define true believers who understand and endeavour to fulfil the will of God. (Matthew12:50, 23:8, Hebrews 2:12)
Creation.... Or Chance
The world has gone wrong. People have forgotten the true basis for a happy society, and have traded the acceptance of a loving Creator for the materialism and hopelessness of a life based on “mere chance.” Yet evidence abounds to prove that God does exist and controls the marvellous universe in which we live. Further, the existence of God testifies that the record He has provided – the Holy Bible – can outline the reasons for creation and the purpose of life. Thus, belief in a divine creation holds the key to happiness, and hope. It is only those who honestly and sincerely take the Bible in their hands, and examine its claims, that will benefit from the beauty and harmony of the universe. Examine this booklet, we recommend that you read it right through to obtain a general view of the subject, and then carefully re-examine it, checking the Bible references quoted. We believe you will find it interesting, and it may bring into your life real meaning and purpose.
Gallipoli World War and Bible Prophecy
Many people misunderstand the Bible. They think it to be a book of morals, or stories to tell children in Sunday School. Actually, it is a factual book about God’s divine purpose with this earth and mankind upon it. The Bible speaks about historical events and future plans.
The Bible speaks of the development of the nations and of over-riding circumstances that cause changes in human policies. This booklet is designed to introduce you to one of the fascinating prophecies of the Scriptures, and will show you how to correctly interpret its symbols. It takes for its basis, one of the most amazing incidents in modern history: the defeat of Gallipoli – and, although the passing years have dulled the trauma of that moment, it remains in the chronicles of history as a turning point in the drama of World War 1. Certainly, Gallipoli is important as far as Bible prophecy concerning the Middle East is concerned. We invite you to read the evidence, and to be impressed with the way in which Bible prophecy is shown to be accurate. This being so, the thoughtful reader will seek to discover the other reason for the Bible’s existence: to show us what we must do personally for an involvement in God’s great plan for the future.
The Arabs in Bible Prophecy
The Arab world has been brought prominently before the public by the Arab-Israel antagonism of the last 60 years, the drawn-out Iran-Iraq war of the 1980’s, the two gulf wars, and the continuing trauma of the international energy problem. Unknown to most, however this is playing an important part in the development of a world crisis that will culminate in the return of the Lord Jesus Christ, the battle of armageddon, and the ultimate re-establishment of the kingdom of God on earth. Bible prophecy reveals that the Arab peoples are to play a prominent part in the future purpose of God. These matters not only concern world politics, but are of vital importance to your own individual salvation. This booklet outlines some astounding Bible prophecies which are coming to pass before your every eyes! The events about which you read in newspapers and magazines are accurately explained in the scriptures of truth. We ask you to read this issue, and to make constant comparison with the bible quotations advanced.
