Join us in September for a wonderful time around God's prophetic Word.
Dear Friend of the Prophetic Word
Walking along a dusty road, Jesus Christ asked his disciples a probing question: Who do people say that I am? (Mark 8:27).
For almost 2000 years, people have answered this in different ways: The Gnostics held that Jesus Christ was not of the flesh, but spirit only; others say that Jesus was “mighty” but not almighty; and Islam claims Jesus was a prophet, but not the Son of God. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights, in its first gallery, simply states that Jesus Christ was a “teacher and sage.”
A “teacher and sage” – that’s it? We divide the history of the world based on His unique birth, and His subsequent life, death, and resurrection. So to claim He’s just a “teacher and sage” is underwhelming, to say the least.
The first chapter of the Book of Revelation demonstrates that Jesus is far more than a good teacher or religious reformer. Revelation 1:1 tells us that Jesus Christ is the divine revealer, “to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass…” And verse 3 gives us hope – a blessing to those who take His prophecy to heart.
Are things moving forward on God’s prophetic calendar? Day by day we step closer to His return, even as the world shudders under the threat of wars and turmoil. Nearer and nearer His approach comes, even as we are absorbed in our own daily struggles and challenges.
Knowing this, we watch with anticipation – encouraging one another to remain in the faith – and, like Job in the Old Testament, we can say, “I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth” (Job 19:25).
Jesus Christ, the revealed Messiah, Redeemer and Saviour – “the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” (Rev. 22:13) – is coming quickly. This is the One who, when walking with the disciples and asking what they have heard from others about Him, responded by turning the tables in a personal way. Now, the question was pointed directly at them: “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered in a manner that recognized His utter uniqueness – “Thou art the Christ.” Jesus, acknowledging Peter’s testimony, replied with a prophecy (Mark 8:31): His soon-to-come suffering and rejection, death, and after three days, His resurrection.
The “divine revealer” reveals Himself, and bids all to “hear the words” and “keep the things which are written therein: for the time is at hand” (Rev. 1:3).
Dear friend, the truth of our Lord and Saviour remains firm and sure! His return is prophesised, and His mercy is still available. Our hope is placed in the One who has demonstrated Himself as KING of Kings and LORD of Lords. His word remains true; He is coming again!
Join us this September 29 to October 1, 2016, at Winnipeg’s Victoria Inn as we look to Him who never slumbers or sleeps, who never fails or falters – the Creator of Heaven and Earth! Join us in worship, in celebration, in fellowship, and in hope as we search the Scriptures; being convicted, challenged, and equipped in the truth of Jesus Christ.
Maranatha, the Lord is coming!
