It fills my heart with joy to see Spring making it's appearance in the London parks around me just now. The reintroduction of colour to the landscape fills me with hope for warmer, brighter days to come and so I thought this would be a good time to focus on God's promise of Hope!

In a world where so many people feel hopeless, I'm eternally grateful for the undying hope that knowing Jesus brings into my life. When our future lies in the hands of our Creator and Saviour, it's in the safest place it could be. May we be ready to share that Hope with others in the coming month!

Prophecies Fulfilled By Jesus Christ- The Last Supper Foreshadowed.


The second instalment in my Prophecies series takes a look at the foreshadow of the Last Supper.

In Genesis 14:18 we read about a priest called Melchizedek who creates a picture of things to come at the Last Supper. Melchizedek is a mysterious character as his name appears in none of the genealogies that are listed in the Old Testament. No details are given as to who he is or where he's come from aside from what's mentioned in Genesis 14:18-20.

In these verses, Melchizedek is described in a way that foreshadows the roles and attributes of Jesus as the Messiah. He is said to be priest of God and King of Salem. "Salem" means "peace" and "Melchizedek" means "King of Righteousness." This is important in the study of Messianic prophecy because two of the Messianic titles that are listed elsewhere in the Bible are King of Righteousness and King of Peace.

Thanks to our righteous Saviour we have peace with God through His sacrifice on the Cross!

The Attributes Of God- He Is Holy


The second instalment of my couplet series, "The Attributes Of God" takes a look at the fact that God is Holy.

The holiness of God is a defining part of His character and it's a term used in the Bible to describe both His goodness and His power. God's holiness radiates out from Him like heat does from the sun and is completely unique. It's also so pure and powerful that it can actually be overwhelming and dangerous to approach.

We read in Scripture about the inner section of the Israelite Temple called the Holy of Holies where God Himself resided. The priests who worked within the Temple had to take great measures before entering this inner room, to keep themselves pure both morally and ritually speaking. Endless sacrifices had to be made in order for the priests to be able to enter the Holy of Holies and come into the close proximity of God's holiness.
