‘ He [Jesus] told them, “This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning in Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high”’ (Luke 24.46-49).
‘But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth’ (Acts 1.8).
‘Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit”’ (Acts 2.38).
‘Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved’ (Acts 4.12).
‘Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone’ (Ephesians 2.19-20).
‘…command certain men not to teach false doctrines any longer nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. These promote controversies rather than God’s work—which is by faith’ (1 Timothy 1.3).
‘All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness’ (2 Timothy 3.16).
We publish to strengthen and establish beliefs and enlighten perplexed and bewildered people who earnestly seek, amid the maze of men’s traditions, true teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ. We sincerely pray God will grant readers grace to accept truth in Christ Jesus. ‘This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls….”’ (Jeremiah 6.16).
1. ‘All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work’ (2 Timothy 3.16). ‘Above all, you must understand that no prophecy Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit’ (2 Peter 1.20-21). The Bible, God’s infallible Word, gives true history of heaven’s, earth’s and humanity’s creation, containing correct prophecy of ages to come regarding heaven’s, earth’s and humanity’s destiny. All teaching, faith, hope and love for the Church come from and must harmonize with the Bible. Everyone should read it and needs Spirit-anointing to understand it: ‘As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him’ (1 John 2.27). 2. One God: God being defined as the Supreme Being, not merely as a supernatural being, therefore, while there are many supernatural beings (which we call angels if they are good and demons if they are evil), there is one true God: ‘….The Lord our God, the Lord is one’ (Mark 12.29). ‘There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called—one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all’ (Ephesians 4.4-6). ‘I am the first and last, apart from me there is no God’ (Isaiah 44.6). ‘Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me’ (Isaiah 43.10). 3. Creator: ‘…I am the LORD, who has made all things, who alone stretched out the heavens, who spread out the earth by myself’ (Isaiah 44.24). 4. Nature: ‘God is Spirit and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth...
