We need the Bible now – May 2021

11  For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; 12  The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; Song of Songs 2

Who could not want to be present on such a lovely spring morning?  For this is to be a day when the Earth will be  covered in re beauty.

And more important,​​ the world at large will then believe in the one true God – the Creator and Sustainer of​​ all life​​ on​​ this planet – and want to learn of​​ Him​​ and His purpose,​​ and peace will truly prevail throughout the Earth.

2  And it shall come to pass in the last days,​​ that​​ the mountain of the​​ LORD‘S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.​​ 3​​  And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and​​ let us go up to the mountain of the​​ LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the​​ LORD​​ from Jerusalem.​​ 4​​  And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.  ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​  ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ Isaiah 2

Looking at​​ the world around us​​ you​​ might​​ find this difficult to believe,​​ which​​ is not surprising.​​ And how that change will come about may also​​ surprise​​ you, particularly if you are not a regular Bible reader.​​

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.​​ 31​​  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet,​​ and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.  ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​ Matthew 24​​ 

Although the Bible tells us the return of Jesus to the Earth is very close,​​ Jesus​​ himself​​ and his disciples assure us that,​​ with a little study and conscientious preparation there is still time, God willing, to get involved.​​

16​​  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.​​      John 3

Jesus tells us it is to happen in this way … …​​

28​​  Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,​​ 29​​  And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; ​​ ​​ John 5

Before we go any​​ further, many of those visiting our web site and hearing these things for the first time are likely to be amazed by the promises the Bible contains. ​​ For them, although we can assure everyone that these events are described in much more detail all over the​​ Old and New Testaments, they seem to be​​ so incredible it is the truth of the​​ whole​​ Bible​​ that is​​ questioned. ​​ So​​ we will pause here to give you the opportunity to look at a Bible and check these things. ​​

To help with that we therefore are providing below further articles, which deal with the evidence for the truth of the Bible. ​​ Please have a read of these.​​ ​​ We think you will find them very interesting.

Note: We have used the King James version in this article, but any reliable translation​​ (not a paraphrase)​​ will tell you the same things.​​ ​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​​​​  ​​

The next two articles – ‘How can Israel be God’s witnesses?’ and ‘Our troubled World’ – look at two important different, independent, examples of evidence of the truth and reliability of the Bible.  We hope you will read them and if you have doubts, or questions, you will contact us at the top of this page.
