Welcome

Welcome! This website is for anyone who is seeking to learn more about God's word.

You now have the option to read our Bible studies in a variety of languages. Just select your language from the drop down box which appears in the right hand column of every page.

The good news is that I have finally finished reformatting the wonderful book of Isaiah. You can now find over 400 pages of commentary on Isaiah, which you can use as daily Bible studies or general reference. I still have many studies on other books that need to be restored and reformatted, so please check back with us from time to time.

Thank you for visiting this site and may God bless you and use you in mighty ways for your interest in learning and distributing His Holy Word. If you are a new Christian or an unbeliever seeking truth, let me suggest that you begin with the book of Matthew. The life and testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will bring you joy and blessings beyond belief.

A New Relationship

Ephesians 2:13

13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.


"But now..!" Paul tells us that our situation has radically changed. We were once aliens and strangers from the commonwealth of Israel. We were not God's people, but were a godless people who had no hope. But now, something has changed. God has accomplished one phase of His plan, which was stated in Ephesians 1:10. "That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him."

What we read about in this verse is something very important to God's plan. This verse is part of what Paul wants us to understand about the power of God that is working in us. He wants us to see that, although we were once strangers and aliens to the kingdom of God, we are now "in Christ." We have been chosen in Him before the foundation of the world, blessed with all of the heavenly blessings, quickened together with Him, and created as new creatures who have been given predetermined jobs to accomplish for the kingdom of heaven.

Thus, we have been "made nigh." We have been brought near to God. We are no longer strangers and aliens, but are heirs to the divine fortunes of our Creator. We have a new relationship with God the Father, a relationship that was made possible in spite of our godless ways and disbelief, a relationship made possible by the mercy, love and power of God, which were exercised through the suffering of Christ.     Read More
