The Gospel Truth

Glory to God!

In a world of uncertainty, insecurity and trouble, God is revealing His sovereignty, authority, power and purpose to encourage His people, the Church to depend completely on Him and to stand firm in Him. Looking at Revelation chapter 5, Alexander showed us two weeks ago how the Holy Spirit is taking KLF into the revelation and knowledge of God's kingly authority. In his message entitled, "What's going on?" Alexander showed us how the revelation of Jesus as the Lion (strength, sovereignty, subtlety), the Lamb (sacrifice, submission, simplicity) and the Root of David (source, beginning and end, son of David/Son of God), at the right hand of the Father, has the right to open the scroll with seven seals because of His righteousness, authority and power. This revelation is an encouragment to us to recognise that God's apparent weakness is His strength, that God has a plan for mankind and that He is in control! Halleluja!

On Sunday Lilly and Wes gave us a report on their 6 month discipleship training school with YWAM, Gold Coast, Australia. They both gave powerful testimonies of how God touched the people on their outreaches in Papua New Guinea and the Philippines and what it was like for them to be amongst the poor, the imprisoned and the local people.

Richard then shared a message with us entitled, "Why do people reject the truth?" Answering Pilate's question, "What is truth?" in John 18:38, Richard showed us that the resurrection of Christ is proof that Jesus is the truth! However, people reject Christ as absolute truth for the following reasons: ignorance, blindness, unbelief, sin/rebellion, worldly thinking, fear of man, pride, natural-mindedness, fear of consequences, fear of getting it wrong, disappointment, deception, hypocrisy, and inferiority. Richard encouraged us to stand firm in the truth and not to give in to the thinking of the world that regards truth as relative and rejects absolute truth. The Lord is calling the Church to stand firm in the authority of His truth, as those sanctified by the truth (John 17:17), and not to give in to the pattern of this world!
