The Bible

THE BIBLE Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of 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 Daniel, a Chinese brother from Singapore, sat in the chair still shaking his head in unbelief. He had just returned from his first extensive visit to the People’s Republic of China. Now Continue Reading

From KHouse.Org TEACHING THE BIBLE IN SCHOOLS: A CURRICULUM COMPARISON - PART II The Bible is still the world's best selling book.

Teaching The Bible in Schools: A Curriculum Comparison

From KHouse.Org TEACHING THE BIBLE IN SCHOOLS: A CURRICULUM COMPARISON Part 1: The Bible Literacy Project Mandatory reading of the Bible in public schools was banned as a result of the 1963 Supreme Court decision Abington Township v.

Unfortunately many Christians do not know how to answer these commonly asked questions. So today we are going to examine how God authenticates His Continue Reading

Hosea Can You See?

From KHouse.Org HOSEA CAN YOU SEE? When Moses asked Pharaoh to "Let my people go," Pharaoh responded, "Who is the Lord that I should obey His voice to let Israel go?" If Pharaoh could have jumped into the future to read the book of Hosea, he would have known that the Lord was a sovereign God (Chapters 1-3); a holy God (Chapters 4-7); a just God (Chapters 8-10); and a loving God (Chapters 11-14). Pharaoh, of course, never had the Continue Reading

The Book of Revelation

From Koinonia House Archives January 2008 THE BOOK OF REVELATION - The Book of Revelation is the only book of the Bible that promises a special blessing to the reader. (Many verses in the Bible encourage reading God's Word in general, but only one book has the "audacity" to claim, in effect, "Read me, I'm special.") What is surprising is that, even for many avid Bible readers, this book is overlooked or neglected. One would expect just the Continue Reading
