Gavin-Paynter/Kinsman-Redeemer.jpg
Kinsman Redeemer
Gavin Paynter, 7 September 2014
In the Old Testament the kinsman-redeemer was the closest male relative who, according to law of Moses had the responsibility to act on behalf of a relative who was in need, danger, financial trouble or whose death needed to be avenged.

In the law it is made clear that only a kinsman could redeem his relative’s property, deliver his relative from slavery, avenge murder and raise up seed (children) on behalf of his relative.

This study is a look at the kinsman-redeemer in the Old Testament and the Book of Ruth and how this was a picture of the redemption brought to mankind by Jesus.

Gavin-Paynter/The-book-of-life.jpg
The book of life
Gavin Paynter, 3 August 2014
God’s prophet Moses says that God has written a book:
Exodus 32:32 “… if not, then blot me out of the book you have written.”

The apostle John tells us that the book, called the book of life, belongs to the Lamb (Jesus):
Revelation 13:8 … the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.

The book of life will also be opened at the judgment.
Revelation 20:12a And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life.

Those whose names are not in the book of life will be condemned.
Revelation 20:15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

Ken-Paynter/The-Feast-of-Trumpets.jpg
Blood Moons and The Feast of Trumpets
Ken Paynter, 27 July 2014
A look at the typology of the Feast of Trumpets and the Rapture of the church - and the phenomenon of the Blood Moons.

Leviticus 23:23-25 The Lord said to Moses, Say to the Israelites: On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of Sabbath rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts. Do no regular work, but present a food offering to the Lord.

Rosh Hashanah or Jewish New Year is called the Feast of Trumpets in the Bible because it begins the Jewish High Holy Days and Ten Days of Repentance with the blowing of the ram's horn, the shofar, calling God's people together to repent from their sins.

Self esteem and positive affirmation gospel
Gavin Paynter, 20 July 2014
If I were to tell you:

Start your day by declaring, “I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.”

you may be tempted to think that this was a quote from an email or SMS encouraging Christians to make daily positive affirmations about themselves – which will then be fulfilled the more they say it.
In fact that is a passage of Scripture. But where is it from and what is the context?

Johnray-Rennie/20140720_Jacob-and-Esau.jpg
Jacob and Esau
Johnray Rennie, 20 July 2014
A look at how Esau is a type of Adam and how Jacob foreshadowed Jesus.

Gen 25:21 Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren. The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant. 22 The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, "Why is this happening to me?" So she went to inquire of the LORD. 23 The LORD said to her, "Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger." 24 When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb. 25 The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau. 26 After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau's heel; so he was named Jacob.

Barnabas - Son of encouragement
Gavin Paynter, 15 July 2014
A look at the ministry of encouragement and mentoring as exemplified in the life of Barnabas.

Ever heard of Albert McMakin? Ever heard of Edward Kimball? Ever heard of Robert Moffat? Ever heard of Barnabas?

We serve a God of comfort and encouragement, who expects us to do the same to others:

2 Cor 1:3-5 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.

Ken-Paynter/The-Feast-of-Pentecost.jpg
The Feast of Pentecost
Ken Paynter, 6 July 2014
The Feast of Passover: had to do with “Peace with God”
The Feast of Unleavened bread and Feast of First Fruits: had to do with the “Peace of God”
The Feast of The Feast of Pentecost: has to do with the “Power of God”

The Feast of Pentecost is the 4th step that the believer must take towards the “Rest of God” which is typified by the Feast of Tabernacles.

Hebrews 4:9-11 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.

The Great Commission - Part 2 - Uneven distribution of resources
Gavin Paynter, 29 June 2014
There is enough evangelistic activity to reach the whole world.
Enough activity for every one in the world to hear a 1-hour presentation of the Gospel every other day all year long.
Over 1,43 billion hours of evangelism generated by Christians every year: personal witness, radio, TV, Internet, literature, etc.

But this evangelistic activity is unevenly targeted:
91% of all Christian outreach/evangelism does not target non-Christians, but targets other Christians.

AGF 2013 National Conference Paper on Moral Regeneration
AGF SA, 26 June 2014
As promised, we are sending you in written format a Paper where we put down the main thoughts and what we believe is important that we, as the church, should be teaching and preaching with one voice across South Africa.

The AGF 2013 National Conference had as its theme and sub-themes the intent of tackling the issue of morality in the nation. In the past number of years corruption, murder, rape, the homosexual and lesbian agenda, abortion and other moral issues in the country have been escalating at an alarming pace. There is a constant need for us as pastors to address these issues at grassroots level in our congregations.

True religion
Candice Towndrow, 22 June 2014
James 1:26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. 27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Isa 58:1 “Shout it aloud, do not hold back.
Raise your voice like a trumpet.
Declare to my people their rebellion
and to the descendants of Jacob their sins.
2 For day after day they seek me out;
they seem eager to know my ways,
as if they were a nation that does what is right
and has not forsaken the commands of its God.
They ask me for just decisions
and seem eager for God to come near them.
3 ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say,
‘and you have not seen it?
Why have we humbled ourselves,
and you have not noticed?’
“Yet on the day of your fasting, you do as you please
and exploit all your workers.

Last words of Jesus - The great commission
Gavin Paynter, 15 June 2014
When someone is about to leave us (e.g. death or a departure to a faraway land), the last words they speak are ones that they consider to be the most important.

There’s no time for wasted words when you have little time left with your loved ones. You want to utilize what time is left to impact them and, as we see in the case of Jesus, to leave any final instructions.

Among the last words spoken by Jesus after his resurrection and before his return to heaven are the words which have come to be known as “The Great Commission”.

Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. (Mark 16:15-16)

Jeremiah 1
Siegfried Aussel, 8 June 2014
Jer 1:5-10 (NLT) “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.
Before you were born I set you apart
and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
“O Sovereign LORD,” I said, “I can’t speak for you! I’m too young!”

The LORD replied, “Don’t say, ‘I’m too young,’ for you must go wherever I send you and say whatever I tell you. And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the LORD, have spoken!”
Then the LORD reached out and touched my mouth and said,
“Look, I have put my words in your mouth!
Today I appoint you to stand up against nations and kingdoms.
Some you must uproot and tear down, destroy and overthrow.
Others you must build up and plant.”

The Feast of First Fruits
Ken Paynter, 1 June 2014
The Feast of First-fruits, on the 17th day of Nisan, was a celebration of the harvest, when a sheaf representing the very first of the harvest was waved before the Lord, as a symbolic gesture that dedicated the coming harvest to Him.

Jesus rose from the dead on the Feast of First-fruits.
The Apostle Paul said: "But now is Christ risen from the dead and become the first fruits of them that slept." (1 Corinthians 15:20,23)

Gavin-Paynter/What-makes-good-soil.jpg
What makes good soil?
Gavin Paynter, 25 May 2014
A Christian who does not bear fruit for the kingdom is not good soil. You cannot say “I am good soil” when you haven’t produced any harvest. In the parable of the sower Jesus said:

Matt 13:23 “The seed that fell on good soil represents those who truly hear and understand God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!” (NLT)

God expects us to bear fruit:
John 15:16 “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last...” (NIV)

Unleavened Bread (Leviticus 23:6)
Pointed to the Messiah’s sinless life (as leaven is a picture of sin in the Bible) making Him the perfect sacrifice for our sins.

Jesus’ body was in the grave during the first days of this feast, like a kernel of wheat planted and waiting to burst forth as the bread of life.

Brendan Bentley, 16 May 2014
Psalm 18:28 (KJV) For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. 29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. 30 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.

31 For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? 32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. 33 He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places. 34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. 35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.

36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip. 37 I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed. 38 I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet. 39 For thou hast girded me with strength unto the battle: thou hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

40 Thou hast also given me the necks of mine enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me. 41 They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto the LORD, but he answered them not. 42 Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

Hellenic Ministries
Nico Bougas, 12 May 2014
Greece was one of the first countries that the apostle Paul evangelized in response to the call from the Macedonian man in a vision. But 2000 years later Greece is again in desperate need of evangelism. This is a modern Macedonian call for help.

Acts 16:9-10 During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” After Paul had seen the vision, we got ready at once to leave for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.

The Feast of Passover
Ken Paynter, 4 May 2014
Leviticus 23:4 On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the Lord's Passover.

The Hebrew word "Pesach" means to pass over, to exempt or to spare. Passover, which begins on the 14th day of Nisan (the first month of the Jewish calendar) celebrates the epic exodus of the nation of Israel out of bondage. The Jews had been slaves in Egypt for generations, but were refused their freedom despite plague after plague being visited by God, on the Egyptians, through Moses. However the night before the final ‘plague’ which caused Pharaoh to change his mind, the Israelites were given very explicit instructions...

They were to sacrifice a lamb and place the blood upon the door posts and lintels of their homes.

Matt 10:28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.

Islam and Christianity - Part 2 - Infidels and Jews
Gavin Paynter, 13 April 2014
The Quran is sharply contrasted to the Bible when it comes to the status and treatment of infidels (i.e. non-believers) and other races (in particular Jews).

Ishmael’s mother, Hagar, was told by an angel that he would live in conflict with his brothers. (Gen 16:11-12) Not only was this prophecy true of Ishmael, but even his descendants “lived in hostility toward all their brothers.” (Gen 25:18)

Today Ishmael’s descendants (the Arab races) still live in hostility, both amongst themselves (Sunni and Shiite) and with their brother race – the Jews (Isaac’s descendants).

The cares of this life
Ken Paynter, 6 April 2014
ARE THE CARES OF THIS LIFE WEIGHING YOU DOWN? GOD SAYS WE SHOULD CAST ALL OF THEM ON HIM.

1 PETER 5:6-7 (AMP) THEREFORE, HUMBLE YOURSELVES UNDER THE MIGHTY HAND OF GOD, THAT IN DUE TIME HE MAY EXALT YOU, CASTING THE WHOLE OF YOUR CARE ON HIM, FOR HE CARES FOR YOU AFFECTIONATELY AND CARES ABOUT YOU WATCHFULLY.

WHAT DOES THAT SAY AGAIN?
HUMBLE YOURSELVES,
CASTING ALL OF YOUR CARE.
BOTH OF THOSE THOUGHTS ARE ONE AND THE SAME SENTENCE. THEY ARE NOT SEPARATE ACTIONS, BUT THE SAME ACTION CARRIED OUT TO ITS ULTIMATE END. ACCORDING TO GOD’S WORD, THE BEST WAY TO HUMBLE OURSELVES IS TO
“CAST ALL OF OUR CARE” UPON HIM – TO RECOGNIZE AND ADMIT THAT WE ARE NOT CAPABLE OF BEARING IT OR FINDING SOLUTIONS FOR IT.

Blaming others
Ken Paynter, 16 March 2014
Accepting responsibility for your sin is vital.

Passing the buck is an expression said to have originated from poker. A marker or counter (e.g., a knife with a buckhorn handle during the American Frontier era) was used to indicate the person whose turn it was to deal. If the player did not wish to deal he could pass the responsibility by passing the "buck", as the counter came to be called, to the next player.

"The buck stops here" is a phrase that was popularized by U.S. President Harry S. Truman, who kept a sign with that phrase on his desk in the Oval Office. The phrase refers to the fact that the President has to make the decisions and accept the ultimate responsibility for those decisions. Truman received the sign as a gift from a prison warden who was also an avid poker player.

Ellen made the decision to acknowledge Christ as her Lord, not just with her mouth, but with her life. There are many who profess to know Christ and may even be involved in Church/Christian activity, but they don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus, they are just religious.

Isaiah 29:13 The Lord says: These people come near to me with their mouth and honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.

Islam and Christianity (Part 1) - Status of women
Gavin Paynter, 9 March 2014
At face value, Islam appears to share common roots with both Judaism and Christianity. But the teachings of the Quran are sharply contrasted to the Bible when it comes to the status and treatment of women.

Men are superior to women. (Sura 2:228)
Your wives are like a field. Plow them as often and anyway you wish. (Sura 2:223)
Husband, discipline your rebellious wives, beat them and deny them sex (Sura 4:34)
In one hadith Muhammad advises husbands to, “Hang up your whip where your wife can see it.”

The Bible says:
Eph 5:25-29 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her...
Prov 18:22 He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favour from the LORD.
1 Tim 5:1-2 ... Treat... older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity.

Cling to your faith in Christ, and keep your conscience clear.

Discipline
Ken Paynter, 23 February 2014
Hebrews 12:4-12
In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says, My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son. Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined and everyone undergoes discipline then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all.

Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

The secret place
Tommy Archibald, 16 February 2014
Psa 91:1 (NKJV) He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust."
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
14 "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation."

Numbers 16:46 Then Moses said to Aaron, "Take your censer and put incense in it, along with fire from the altar, and hurry to the assembly to make atonement for them. Wrath has come out from the LORD; the plague has started." 47 So Aaron did as Moses said, and ran into the midst of the assembly. The plague had already started among the people, but Aaron offered the incense and made atonement for them. 48 He stood between the living and the dead, and the plague stopped.

Funeral of Nick Georgakis
Ken Paynter, 13 February 2014
When life caves in, you do not need reasons, you need comfort. You do not need some answers; you need someone. And Jesus does not come to us with an explanation; he comes to us with his presence. We are seeking the reason. We want to know why. Like Job, we finally want God to tell us just what is going on…

But God does not reveal his plan, he reveals himself. He comes as warmth when we are cold, fellowship when we are alone, strength when we are weak, peace when we are troubled, courage when we are afraid, songs when we are sad, and bread when we are hungry.

He is with us on our journeys. He is there when we are at home. He sits with us at our table. He knows about funerals and weddings and commencements and hospitals and jails and unemployment and labour and laughter and rest and tears. He knows because he is with us. He comes to us again and again.
(Bob Benson)

Wise men still seek him - Part 2
Gavin Paynter, 9 February 2014
Because wise men don’t just listen to the words of Jesus, but put them into practice, as a result they can withstand the storms and troubles of life:

Matt 7:24-27 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”

The Purpose of Suffering - Part 2
Gavin Paynter, 2 February 2014
“What is the purpose of suffering?”
- God speaks to us through suffering
- We learn obedience through suffering (to trust even when we don’t understand)
- To prevent spiritual pride
- In our weakness, God is strong
- Crucifies the flesh and focuses us on the truly important things
- God uses it to refine and develop us
- Suffering is used by God as a form of discipline (It is a sign of sonship.)
- It may be a test of our integrity

Love
Ken Paynter, 2 February 2014
In one of the most powerful and poetic chapters of the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13, the apostle Paul describes the sort of love Christians are meant to embody:
"Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails."

Longsuffering heads the list, and I think that's significant because to love freely and consistently in the other ways Paul names requires a readiness to go the distance. We can't reserve our love for certain situations or special people, and we can't withdraw it when people disappoint or fail. Longsuffering is both a prerequisite and the bottom line.

Do I have a soul - Part 2
Gavin Paynter, 26 January 2014
There are 3 main ways in which we can view the world:

1) Materialism holds that there is nothing in the world besides matter. Accordingly, materialists view subjective consciousness as nothing more than the product of the interactions among the neurons in the human brain.

2) Idealism holds that nothing exists in the world except our conscious experiences. Idealists therefore regard the material world as a mere illusion of our consciousness.

3) Dualism is the philosophical tradition embraced by those who wish to reject neither the existence of the material world nor the existence of the mind. Dualists believe that there are two worlds: one of mind, and one of matter.

Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (KJV)

There is pain in the anointing - Part 2
Brendan Bentley, 25 January 2014
Numbers 6:1-20 (KJV)
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the Lord:
3 He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried.
4 All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.
5 All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the Lord, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.
6 All the days that he separateth himself unto the Lord he shall come at no dead body.
7 He shall not make himself unclean for his father, or for his mother, for his brother, or for his sister, when they die: because the consecration of his God is upon his head.
8 All the days of his separation he is holy unto the Lord.

Gavin-Paynter/20140119_The-Baptism-in-the-Holy-Spirit_SUMMARY.jpg
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
Gavin Paynter, 19 January 2014
There are 3 different Greek prepositions that describe our relationship with the Holy Spirit – ‘para’, ‘en’ and ‘epi.’

John 14:16-17 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with (para) you and will be in (en) you.

1. “Para hymin” is “with you” - a coming alongside.
2. “En hymin” is “in you” - living in you.
3. EPI - But there is a third relationship that a believer can have which is separate and distinct from the first two. In Acts 1:8 Jesus promised, “but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon (epi) you” (NASB) The word 'epi' in the Greek means ‘upon’ or ‘over’.

The Purpose of Suffering
Gavin Paynter, 6 January 2014
The Bible gives a good deal of attention to the reality of suffering.
It does not regard it as an illusion as some religions and sects do, nor deal with it superficially.
CAN SUFFERING BE GOD’S WILL.
Peter writes, “So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator…” (1 Pet 4:19) It is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. (1 Pet 3:17)

Fear
Candice Towndrow, 5 January 2014
Matt 4:18-21 (ESV) While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him.
And going on from there he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

Wise men still seek him
Gavin Paynter, 25 December 2013
In modern English Bible versions like the NIV and NASB, the Greek “magoi” is rendered by the transliterated Latin form – “Magi”. In the KJV, the translators rendered ‘magoi’ as “wise men”.

These Magi were indeed wise men as indicated by their actions. But what can we learn today from their story?
