The Bible teaches us that God is our Father.
The Bible tells us the good news of God's purpose.
The Bible tells amazing details of God's kingdom.
The Bible gives an invitation for us to be in God's kingdom.
The Bible shows us the way to God's kingdom.
The Bible teaches us how to be happy and worthwhile people.
The Bible shows us the way to live a blessed contented life.
The complexity, order and beauty of what we see created around us is convincing evidence of a powerful Creator. The Bible teaches us there is a Creator, who has with great wisdom, power and purpose, made the world with us on it and all of the universe as we know it.
In various ways throughout history our Creator has communicated with people, and one of those methods in our days, is through what we know as the Bible. In the Bible our Creator is called God, and one of the ways he chooses to portray himself is as a father. The Bible reveals how we become His 'adopted' children and receive the gifts of grace and eternal life.

Why read the bible? Why do we do it?
Some people find a lot of pleasure and benefit from reading the Bible often. On our radio program we enjoy the experience of digging deeper into the Bible and discovering some of the wonderful wisdom and spiritual enlightenment freely offered to anyone who prayerfully and truthfully searches its pages for God s message.
Reading the Bible is a road to discovery of the reason why we have been created. Many prophecies in the Bible give us a vision of the wonderful future God has planned for the earth and people on it. You can freely explore and discover this for yourself. Pray to God for help and read the Bible. If you have difficulty you are welcome to contact us, we would love to help. If there are any Bible topics that you would like us to discuss on the program you are welcome to contact us and we will be pleased to explore and broadcast it.
Reading the Bible every day
We are in a world where there are so many distractions that a desire to know the truth of the Bible message can be loosing the important place it should hold in our lives and consequently the understanding of the relevance of its message for us today is dying. This is why Jesus said when the Son of Man comes, will he find the faith on earth?
The Word of God is able to enlighten us to christian truth and living. "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path". Psm 119:105. It gives us moral and spiritual guidance.
The Word of God tells us the purpose of God, why we are here, what God has done in past and what He has planned for the future.
The Word of God is able to provide us with the information and instruction necessary to have a share in the Kingdom of God. For example, "the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus". 2 Tim 3:15. And in another place, "I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified". Acts 20:32.
Many people realise the world is degenerating in many ways steadily downward. This situation we are witnessing today was clearly foretold in the Bible. "Know this also, that in the last days grievous times will be at hand. For men will be self-lovers, money-lovers, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, unyielding, false accusers, without self-control, savage, despisers of good, traitors, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it; even turn away from these". 2Timothy 3:5
He comes at an hour you do not expect (Matthew 24:44)
As a result of this ignorance of God's word Jesus Christ warned that His return to the earth will be completely unexpected and most people will be taken by surprise. And perhaps one the the most serious warnings the the Bible provides for people living in these days is "at the revealing of the Lord Jesus from Heaven with the angels of His power, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God and who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He shall come to be glorified in His saints and to be admired in all those who believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that Day".
2 Thessalonians 1:7-10
These words above are grim and are written in the Bible with the hope they are sufficient to encourage us to prayerfully read the Bible to know how to escape the destruction and be with Jesus Christ. He encourages us with these words, "Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man". Luke 21:36
There are many prophecies in the Bible that refer to the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of God s kingdom upon the earth. The Bible Gospel extends grace to everyone who believes, a promise of being joyfully welcomed into that kingdom and never again experiencing the pain, sorrow and death every living person knows is part of this life.
