Christ-The Uncreated Word" Ch.1:1-18

The Prologue to the Gospel of John, consisting of verses 1 - 18 of the first chapter, ought to be known by heart to every Christian. This Prologue is in three periods, each complete in itself and together forming an arch bridging the entire expanse of the unveiling of theGodhead as touching the divi... Read More

Prophecy Spiritually Understood - Pt 5 "Two Thousand Years Of Armageddon"

THE COVENANT, THE DRY BONES AND ARMAGEDDON For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect. (Romans 4:14) Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. (Galatians 5:2) The Jew is of the law and circumcision... Read More

"Discourse On The Bread Of Life Pt.1" Ch. 6:22-40

It is surely a fact of high significance that John alone of the four evangelists omits any reference in his gospel to the institution of the memorial feast at the Last Supper. He makes no reference to the breaking of the memorial bread or the giving of the testamentary cup. This is all the more rema... Read More

"John The Baptist" Ch. 1:15-36 & 3:22-36

We are not aware that a full investigation of the prophetic significance of John the Baptist has ever been attempted by any former theologian, and we venture on a Herculean task without the aids for which normally we have so much reason to be grateful. Why did John baptise? What did his baptism real... Read More

"Regeneration an Active State" Ch. 3:9-21

V. 9 “How can these things be?” Nicodemus represents throughout this dialogue the people of the Old Covenant - vainly confident of their “knowledge” and their national: privileges. “Behold thou art called a Jew, and restest in the law, and makest thy boast of God and knowest his will and approvest t...

"The Blind Begger Of John Nine" Ch.9

He was but a blind beggar man, a recipient of passing charity, useless in the world, nameless, pitiful, disinherited. But the Lord of glory passing by knows all about this man - his destiny as well as his origin - the purpose of his creation. Why was he born blind? His own fault? (A strange thought ... Read More

"The Feast Of Tabernacles In The Gospel" Ch. 7

“Now the Jews’ feast of tabernacles was at hand” (John 7:2). The Word is prophetic. More than this annual autumn festival of the Jews was due to be observed. What was really “at hand” was that which was predicted and dramatized by the Jewish feast of tabernacles. The Old Covenant, in which these dee... Read More

"The Suffering Of Christ From John's Gospel" Ch.17:1

John Ch. 17 v 1, “These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to Heaven, and said, Father the hour is come. Glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee.” These profound words indicate the dividing of time and the dividing even eternity itself. The hour is come; what hour? The hour of His...

Enter The Kingdom

Chip Brogden"Someone asked, 'Lord, will only a few be saved?' Jesus answered, 'Make every effort to enter through the narrow gate, because I tell you this: many will try to enter but will not be able to... For narrow is the gate, and narrow is the path which leads to Life, and few will find it (Luke 13:23,24; M... Read More
