There can be no doubt that Moses is a picture of Jesus Christ.  Deuteronomy 18:15 says, “The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, LIKE UNTO ME; unto him ye shall hearken;” (emphasis added).  The following is a list of some of the ways in which Moses is a type or picture of Jesus Christ.  Although this is not an exhaustive list, it does include 40…

Casting The Children’s Bread To DogsWhat did Jesus mean when He said don’t give children’s food to dogs?One of the verses to which you refer is Matthew 15:26- “But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.” In this story (Matthew 15:21-28), a woman of Canaan came to Jesus to ask Him to deliver her daughter from a devil. Initially, He refused with the…

Three Preachers in a Storm.Preacher Bryan BurrJohn 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) Introduction; The word tribulation means; to thrash, to beat.] The definition gives the indication of being shaking violently.

Preparation for FaminePreacher Bryan BurrAmos 8:11-1311 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.13…

Many people want to know what to look for in a church. Often, well-intentioned pastors or Christian leaders have offered their own list of requirements, or those seeking a church may have devised their own criteria in their minds. Yet such lists or criteria are often filled with somewhat trivial or “surface” litmus tests that in no way speak to the root of what a church truly is or should be. Unfortunately, many people believe…

Learning to Speak Right God has much to say about the importance of our words—what we say and how we communicate with others. In Matthew 12:34, Jesus Christ warns that in the day of judgment, men will give an account of every idle word. A time is coming when man will understand God’s view of the wrong speech. Christ explained that words are the product of the heart. In this connection, note Proverbs 4:23: “Keep…

Is there a life after death? Did anyone ever come back from the dead to tell us? Yes, the Lord Jesus Christ, who arose from the dead, is the One who came back and who knows. The best proven fact in history is the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Some years ago, two eminent legal authorities of England, Lord Lyttleton and Gilbert West, were unbelievers. They held that the truthfulness of Christianity rested upon…

How to Know if a Person is a True ProphetI do not believe we should be looking for prophets today. However, for the sake of discussion, I will give three biblical tests of a true prophet. They are a good way to test prophets for any age or time.A true prophet never turns people away from the true God, even if their signs and wonders come true. This kind of prophet is sent to see…

Prophecy or PredictionWhat is the main difference between “Prophecy” and “Prediction”?The general purpose of prophecy and prediction is the same: to tell what will happen in the future. However, their source of authority for this information is very different. Prophecy relies on the authority of God-given information. True prophecy is therefore never wrong because it always carries the authority of God’s truth and character. On the other hand, the prediction is based on man’s ability…
