The Scriptures are all powerful in breaking down strongholds, raising up those who are pressed down, and guiding us into experiencing the Lord’s victory over all things. In this segment we set forth a series of subjects with appropriate Scriptures that strengthen faith, and lead to overcoming in the Lord.
Subject areas will be changed regularly, and previous scriptural readings and commentaries may be accessed by clicking different weeks in the calendar below.
The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.
The time may have been fulfilled for the gospel message to be preached, but now the end of all things is at hand, and Marks message is repent, and believe in the gospel. The message of salvation is timeless, and still reaches out to those who are unsaved, saying believe, repent, and be saved.
Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call. Acts 2:38-39.
Here the message of salvation is taken one step further, repent and receive the Lords salvation, be baptised, and then be filled with the Holy Spirit. The promise is not restricted to those in the early Church, but to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.
And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, I repent, you shall forgive him. Luke 17:4.
The outcome of repentance must be forgiveness. If the Lord forgives us no matter how many times we sin, we have no other option than to forgive all sins against us.
Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. Rev 3:3.
The outcome of our lives is eternal existence in heaven or hell. We cannot afford to be complacent, for the Lord warned, Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. Matt 24:41-42. In the first reading we are encouraged to remember the words of our salvation and hold fast to them.
