The Son Of Man And The Flaming Sword

I preached on Mark 8:27-9:1 and I focused on one aspect of Jesus’s teaching in verses 8:38-9:1 which read as follows, “For whoever is ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father […]

The Parousia of Christ

It is Advent season, which means the church reflects upon the coming of the Lord, the first coming, that is. This is a wonderful time of joy as the course of world history changed.

God of Peace, But How?
