➤JULY 2020 The Church of Christ —Translated from the Bislama. The church of Christ has the way to join all Christians into one people. The church of Christ is not just another group that divides Christians. No, not at all. Every one of you can be one people in Christ because you are joined to Christ Jesus only (Galatians 3:26-28).
➤ JULY 2020 Ezekiel Chapters 21-22-23 —Chapters 21, 22, and 23 of Ezekiel are outlined and analysed. These are about Babylon's role, Israel's sins, and a parable of two immoral sisters Ohola and Oholibah.
➤ JUN 2020 What the Bible Truly Can Do —[A lesson translated from the Bislama]. You and I must follow everything that Jesus teaches in the New Testament of the Bible. It can unite us, make us right, and tell us the true gospel that has the power to save us.

➤ YouTube JUN 2020 Search for the True Church (5) How to Find Christ’s Church —Watch a 25‑minute video, fifth in the series "Search for the True Church."

➤ YouTube JUN 2020 Search for the True Church (4) Simply Christians —Watch a 25‑minute video, fourth in the series "Search for the True Church." Christians don't have to be under a denominational umbrella in order to be Christ's body and receive the full blessings of grace. The difference between those who are "simply Christians", and those who belong to a denomination, is that "simply Christians" have faith in the sufficiency of God-given things, and add nothing to them.

➤ JUN 2020 Our Response to Trials (2) —Suffering produces various responses in people. In Part 1 we looked at four wrong responses to suffering. Now, in Part 2, we look at three right responses.

➤ YouTube JUN 2020 Search for the True Church (3) —Watch a 25‑minute video, third in the series "Search for the True Church." It is now about 2000 years since Christianity began. In that time it has gone down hill a long way. The history books bulge with tales of heresy and scandal. Of course truth and sincerity can also be found, but for these you have to search. If we go right back to the first fifty years of Christianity, we find that it had gone badly wrong almost from the moment it started. What went wrong?

➤ MAY 2020 YouTube Search for the True Church (2) — Watch a 30‑minute video, second in the series "The Search for the True Church". There are many conflicting and confusing opinions about how to define religion, what its purpose is, and which religion is acceptable. Rather than add my opinion to the mess, I am going to simply offer you the longstanding viewpoint of someone whose credentials are unsurpassed and who addresses this question with clarity and authority: Paul the apostle..
➤MAY 2020 Nambawan Kwestin We Yumi Mas Askem —I gat wan kwestin we i impoten moa long evri narafala kwestin i stap.

➤ MAY 2020 YouTube Search for the True Church (1) — Watch a 30‑minute video, first in the series "The Search for the True Church". Jesus told Peter, "I will build my church" (Matthew 16:18).

We introduce the series Search for the True Church by briefly looking at the statement of Jesus, "I will build my church".
➤ MAY 2020 YouTube The Old Testament (6) Timeless Principles — Watch a 30‑minute video, sixth in the series "The Old Testament Today".

➤ MAY 2020 YouTube The Old Testament (5) Great Examples — Watch a 30‑minute video, fifth in the series "The Old Testament Today". The Old Testament is a sourcebook of true stories of faithful men and women of God, and also of people who rebelled against God. All these serve as patterns and witnesses to encourage and strengthen us. In this lesson we note a few instances of how the New Testament makes use of these examples.
➤ MAY 2020 YouTube The Old Testament (4) Messianic Prophecy — Watch a 30‑minute video, fourth in the series "The Old Testament Today". This lesson looks at the value of the Old Testament prophecies about Christ.

➤ MAY 2020 YouTube The Old Testament (3) Historical Facts — Watch a 30‑minute video, third in the series "The Old Testament Today". If the Old Testament disappeared, it would be greatly missed, because of its essential historical facts, messianic prophecies, great examples of faith, and timeless principles. In this lesson we consider the value of the historical facts recorded in the Old Testament, which lend integrity to the New Testament and help us understand it better.

➤ APRIL 2020 Jesus the Way, Truth, and Life (John 14:6). —Jesus said to Thomas, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me". There is only one way to heaven. That Way is Jesus and his word of truth. No other can grant us eternal life. So it's well worth thinking about the way, the truth, and the life. That's what we do in this lesson
➤ APR 2020 YouTube The Gospel in the Old Testament —Watch a 30‑minute video, first in the series "The Old Testament Today". The gospel is in the Old Testament scriptures, not only in the New.

➤ APRIL 2020 Ezekiel Chapters 18-19-20 —Chapters 18, 19, and 20 of Ezekiel outlined and analysed. A key question is whether God punishes the innocent. There is a lament, delivered in parables, about the sons of Josiah. There is also the story of Israel’s rebellion.
➤ APRIL 2020 Jisas i bin Mekem Wan Sakrefaes —Taem we yumi kam stanap long fored blong fes blong God, yumi no gat paoa nating blong mekem se yumi i klin long ae blong God.

➤ APRIL 2020 Jesus Took Our Place —Why did Jesus die on the cross erected at Calvary? Here's why: Christ, whose life was perfect, took your place, since your life was not perfect. Jesus died one time only to take away your sins in order to bring you to God.(1Peter 3:18)
➤ APRIL 2020 Ezekiel Chapters 16‑17 —These chapters continue to record the messages that came to Ezekiel from the LORD God. God speaks of his love for Israel, his sorrow for their terrible sins, and their coming destruction at the hands of their enemies. But again God promises that whilst Israel is a tree cut down, a tender branch of it will be grown into a new tree and thrive.
➤ APRIL 2020 Beautiful Life Unending —Christ gives you the promise of life everlasting (1John 2:25). This is God’s promise to everyone who tries hard to obey the commandments attached to this promise. God makes a promise in the Bible, that the blood of Jesus Christ takes away the sins of those who believe in him and follow his word. Such will receive beautiful life unending (1John 1:7, 5:11-13).
