Today we complete our Advent series, The Right Time, with a look at the Shepherds. What was the status of a shepherd in the society of that day? How did they respond to the angelic hosts? How did they prepare for the arrival of Christ?
Have you ever headed to a destination and realised you were on the wrong route? As we continue our Advent Series, The Right Time, we will travel with the wise men to see what navigation tools they used to find the right path to the new born King and their response to the Christ Child.
Our faith in Christ gives us hope for tomorrow and for eternity. But what happens to one’s faith when God is silent for 400 years? As we continue our Advent series, The Right Time, we will consider Simeon and his example of faith and praise.
As we continue our Advent Series: The Right Time, we will consider Joseph – his heart and his behavior as he, too, prepared for the arrival of Jesus. The Reverend Mark Rae returns to provide insight into the character Joseph.
We have become so familiar with the beauty of the Christmas story. But perhaps we have failed to make a personal connection with the people in the biblical narrative who were awaiting the arrival of the Messiah. To kick off this 5-part Advent series, The Right Time, Rev. Mark Rae will re-introduce Mary, the mother of Jesus. Why was she favored, and how did she respond to the news Gabriel delivered?
Scripture reveals the love of God in drawing mankind to Himself. The beautiful story revealed in scripture of the work of the Trinity in drawing us near provides comfort and assurance to all of God's amazing love. Dr. Bob Kerrey, author of ‘How Does God Draw People to Believe?’ and Lead Pastor of Moon Valley Bible Church in Phoenix, Arizona will be our guest today.
In coming to faith in Jesus, what is God's part, and what is our part? Does God make us believe? Do we have a choice? Dr. Bob Kerrey, author of ‘How Does God Draw People to Believe?’, will walk us through scripture that answers these important questions.
Do Christians and Muslims worship the same God? Is Islam a religion of peace? How does the Kingdom of God differ from the Islamic State? These questions and more will be addressed today to help equip you to defend your faith in conversations with Muslim friends. With us to answer these questions is Al Fadi, a former Wahabbi Muslim, and founder of CIRA International: Center for Islamic Research and Awareness.
Imagine being raised in the religion of Islam in the birthplace of Islam, Saudi Arabia. Imagine being a strong defender of the Islamic faith with a fascination for Jihad. What would it take for God to get his attention, and draw him to Jesus Christ? Al Fadi, a former Wahabbi Muslim, and founder of CIRA International: Center for Islamic Research and Awareness will share that story about his life.
"Though we don't know everything about the end of days, Christ told us much about what we need to know. Our guest, Dr. Ron Rhodes, author of Jesus and the End Times, will take us through the scriptures to better understand the second coming of Christ and beyond."
The last days, the end of time - there is much talk about what the future holds for the human race. But what did Christ say about the end of time? Our guest, Dr. Ron Rhodes, author of Jesus and the End Times, will help us glean from scriptures, the truth we need to prepare for the days that are surely coming.
Christ warned us that in this world we would have trials. We see increasing persecution, growing division, mass killings, good called evil and evil called good. Has God lost control? Not at all. He has overcome.
“Does God really care about us? Is He really good? Is He great enough to solve our problems?” We are graced yet again with the presence of Dr. Dave Anderson, Founder and President of Grace School of Theology, who have also said, “… if God permits trials as I grow up in faith, He will also provide the consoling truth that can sustain my hope through undeserved suffering.”
Back with us in today’s episode is Pastor Anise Irfan, a pastor leading a thriving ministry in Pakistan, despite the overwhelming challenges that the churches face daily.
Our guest today has an incredible story of danger, of excitement and of God’s work in a country where it is so difficult to serve Him without being under threats. God shows up and allows this pastor to do an incredible ministry in Pakistan.
If we were to review your life’s record today, what would it reveal? Many of you will have a few things you’re proud of and happy to reveal but maybe there will also be other things in your life that you regret, things that you might feel embarrassed to reveal. This is where God’s mercy and grace come in. But what about the life record of Christ?
Is Jesus the Messiah? Well as Christians, we are certain that He is. But are we prepared to defend what we believe? Mark Rae continues our series on the uniqueness of Christ, with a look at Christ’s unique role as Messiah, the Anointed One.
As we continue our series on the uniqueness of Christ, we recall from our last two programs His unique reality in all eternity. Christ’s unique relationship to God the Father. The equality that He claimed and the power and authority that are Christ’s. Today, we’re going to consider Christ’s unique request. You may be surprised that it comes with the ordinance of communion.
For all who believe in Jesus for forgiveness of sins and eternity with Him, we have been given a beautiful relationship into the family of God. But no relationship is quite like that between the Father and the Son…
Today we begin an exciting five-part series on uniqueness of Christ. Did you know there is no other religion that makes the claim that the Bible or Christ Himself makes about His eternal existence? Christ’s miraculous conception, the prophecies fulfilled about His coming, and His exultation that transcends time and space gives us a glimpse of Christ’s uniqueness.
The return of Jesus Christ is a sure thing and that certainty gives us an opportunity of a lifetime. He will come first for His church, and return with His church to set up His earthly kingdom.  In light of Christ’s imminent return, how do we prepare? How do we make our life now count for eternity?
Much is said about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. But the story is not complete without talking about the ascension of Christ. Where did He go? Is He coming back? If so, how should that knowledge affect my daily life now?
What was it like to be among the first who encountered the risen Christ? Our guest Mark Rae, Vice President of Community Development at Grace School of Theology, will take us back to the Scripture to consider, not only the excitement and joy, but also the fear and doubt from those first encounters.
In light of Christ’s imminent return, how do we prepare? What should we be doing so that He finds us faithful? How do we make our life now count for eternity?...
What is needed to secure eternal life? Confession? Repentance? Perseverance in good works? Could it be that passages we assume tell us how to get to heaven aren't meant for that purpose at all? Dr. Dave Anderson, Founder and President of Grace School of Theology, will help listeners clear the cobwebs of confusion by offering scriptural support for faith alone in Christ alone as the means for receiving eternal life.
