Day of Pentecost and its Significance for Christians Today

Day of Pentecost literally means “fiftieth day”; the word itself comes from the Greek language. Pentecost Sunday is celebrated annually by Christians across the world in memory of the day the Holy Spirit came upon the first century church. That day came fifty days after Jesus was crucified on Passover. (A pure lamb was sacrificed every Passover for centuries for the sins of Israel after the after were delivered from Egypt just as God directed them to. Two thousand years ago, on Passover, God sacrificed his own sinless Lamb for the redemption of the sin of the world.) When Pentecost

The Ascension of Jesus Christ into Heaven and its significance

The Ascension of Jesus Christ is a very important event in History and one of the stones which make up the foundation of the Christian Faith. After he rose from the dead, Jesus showed himself to upwards of five hundred people, including the women at the tomb and the disciples who would become the first apostles (Acts, 1:3, Mat 28:9-10, Luke 24:36-43, 1 Co 15:6). For forty days he made various appearances all over and around Jerusalem proving many times that he was indeed alive, not a ghost or an apparition or a figment of the imagination. Before he ascended

Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so

Who is a born again Christian and why you must be born again?

What does it mean to be a born again Christian? Simply put, someone who is born again is someone who has become a Christian. You cannot be a Christian without being born again and you cannot be born again unless you are a Christian. You cannot be a Christian unless you are saved. So how is a person saved? The Jailer in Acts asked Paul and Silas the same question: Then he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and

The Second Coming of Jesus Christ

How the Rapture and the End-time Prophecies will set the stage for the Second Coming There is a lot of confusion these days about the second coming. What exactly is it? When will Jesus return? Is Jesus coming soon? Will Jesus come back? How do we know if he is coming back? Do we know when he will arrive? What is the Rapture? What is the tribulation? What is the Day of the Lord? These and so many other questions abound in the mind of the believer. Just as abundant as the questions, though, are answers. Most of these are

Pictures of Jesus – a violation of the Second Commandment

Images of Jesus Christ and the heart of idolatry – What the Bible really says If we were to generate a Google search for “pics of Jesus”, what would we see? We would be looking at images of man who looks relatively the same but with different traits. Some images of Jesus depict him with blond, brown or black hair and beard while others show him with blue, green or hazel colored eyes. In these “Jesus” pictures, the man has different skin tones, ranging anywhere from light, almost pale skin to a deep, dark olive color. In fact, depending on
