What's New

This week (23 August), we study our Lord's prayer and teaching about God's sovereignty in revelation in Matt 11:25-27. Charts on this message are also available.

Next week there will be no new study posted. In the will of the Lord, we will return to our studies in Matthew on the Lord's Day, 6 September.

This Tuesday evening (August 25) at 8 PM EDT, Van will be having a discussion with Henry Neufeld of Energion Publications about Van's book on divorce and remarriage, using Google Hangout On-Air. You can watch on YouTube, or on Google + via Hangout. On Google + you will have the opportunity to submit written questions for Van to discuss. Please join us.

Energion is also featuring Van's book on the href="http://energion.co/discuss">Energion Discussion Network on Sept 3, 4, and 7. Each day, the Network will post a different blog entry by Van dealing with some facet of the book, and inviting discussion and comment by readers.

In the will of the Lord, Van will be giving a series of five studies on the Kingdom of God at Curtis Gospel Chapel in Redford, MI on Saturday and Sunday, October 3-4. Further details on the time will be available on their website. If you're in the southeast Michigan area, we'd love to see you at some or all of these meetings.

We are beginning to convert and upload the studies on Jeremiah from 1989-1991. The messages on ch. 1-13 are now available here.

The notes from our studies in Galatians in 1988-1989 are now available here.
