Bible Teaching, Kingdom Way

The Lord’s Supper

God’s Word teaches; That the Lord’s supper was instituted by Jesus Christ so that all believers (all members of the family of God) might partake thereof regularly, to“shew the Lord’s death till he come”. The emblems used are “unleavened bread” and the juice of “fruit of the vine”. Anyone who eats and drinks unworthily brings “damnation”, punishment and chastisement upon himself - Matthew 26:29; Luke 22:17-20; I Corinthians 11:23-30. The institution of the Lord’s Supper is clearly shown in the gospels (Matthew 26:17-30; Luke 22:1,7-20). Paul amplified the doctrine in I Corinthians 11:20-30. In the gospel according to Saint Luke, we see the links between the Feast of Passover or Unleavened Bread and the Lord’s Supper (Luke 22:15-20). The Lord’s Supper in the New Testament is a type ...

Restitution

The Bible, God's Own Word teaches; That Restitution is making amends for wrongs done against our fellow-men, restoring stolen things to their rightful owners, paying debts, giving back where one has defrauded, making confessions to the offended and apologizing to those slandered so as to have a conscience void of offence toward God and man - Genesis 20:1-8,14-18; Exodus 22:1-7; Leviticus 6:1-7; Numbers 5:6-8; 2 Samuel 12:1-6; Proverbs 6:30,31; Ezekiel 33:14-16; Matthew 5:23,24; Luke 19:8,9; Acts 23:1-5; 24:16; James 4:17. Restitution is an act of making amends for wrongs done against our fellowmen; restoring stolen or misappropriated things, properties or persons to their rightful owners; paying back just debts, giving back where one has defrauded, making confessions to the offended ...
The Godhead
Bible Teaching, Kingdom Way

The Godhead

God’s Word teaches; That the Godhead consists of three separate, distinct, and recognisable personalities and qualities, perfectly united in one. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are different Persons in the Godhead, not merely three names for one Person - Matthew 3:16,17; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 28:19,20. The Godhead consists of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. The Bible clearly teaches that each member of the Godhead is God; separate, distinct and recognisable personalities and qualities perfectly united in one. The Father is called God (I Corinthians 8:6; Psalm 89:26; I Chronicles 29:10; Matthew 6:9), the Son, Jesus Christ, is called God (Isaiah 9:6,7; John 20:28), and the Holy Ghost is called God (Acts 5:3,4; I Corinthians 3:16,17; 6:19,20; Hebrews 3:7-9; 10:1...

Total Sanctification

Total Sanctification - Holiness God’s Word teaches; That Entire Sanctification is a definite act of God’s grace, subsequent to the New Birth, by which the believer’s heart is purified and made holy. It cannot be attained progressively by works, struggle or suppression, but it is obtained by faith in the sanctifying blood of Jesus Christ. Holiness of life and purity of heart are central to Christian living - Luke 1:74,75; John 17:15-17; I Thessalonians 4:3,7,8; 5:22-24; Ephesians 5:25-27; Hebrews 2:11; 10:10,14; 13:11,12; Titus 2:11-14; I John 1:7; Hebrews 12:14; I Peter 1:14-16. The doctrine of entire sanctification is central in the mind of the God-head. The doctrine is at the hub or nucleus of Christian teaching. What then is the meaning of the word, Sanctification? Sanctification...
Repentance

Repentance

What Repentance Is! God’s Word teaches; That Repentance is a complete turning away from all sins and its deceitful pleasures and that it is required from every sinner before he can truly and effectively believe in Jesus with saving faith -Proverbs 28:13; Isaiah 55:7; Ezekiel 18:21-23; Mark 1:15; Luke 24:46,47; Acts 2:38; 3:19; 20:20,21; 2 Corinthians 7:10; Hebrews 6:1-3. Repentance is a conscious turning away from evil, disobedience, sin or idolatry (Jonah 3:8-10; Proverbs 28:13; Mathew 12:41). It is also turning from Satan unto the Living God. Repentance evokes a change from one’s mind and purpose in life. It elicits a form of godly sorrow (2 Corinthians 7:10) which makes an erstwhile sinner regard sin with utter revulsion. Godly sorrow makes the sinner or backslider to turn away f...
Understanding The Power Of Faith
Bible Teaching, Faith

Understanding The Power Of Faith

We need understanding to make the most of our redemption, (Proverbs 21:16). A great example of the power of understanding is the Ethiopian eunuch, (Hosea 4:6; Isaiah 5:13). The key to our sanity is in understanding any subject matter that is of importance to us.God is no respecter of persons, whatever He makes available to one, He makes available to all. There's no special preference of anyone with God and He's made equal provision for everyone, (Romans 10:12). What is Faith? Faith is putting God's word to work, believing. God is not a man, He says what He means and He means what He says. Every miracle is facilitated by faith. Faith is knowing God's will as contained in His word and going His way, to actualize same, (Hebrews 11:7). Faith is sharing responsibility with God in the li...
