Messages to the Churches of the First Century A.D.
by David Hocking
All of these messages come from the Apostle Paul, who was being directed by the Holy Spirit in speaking to the churches of the first century A.D. These messages include Galatia, Ephesus, Philippi, Colossae, and Thessalonica. Two of the five were started in Macedonia, and three of the five in Turkey of today.
These churches teach us what the Christian life is all about, covering the issues of salvation, sanctification, submission, and service to our Lord.
It is apparent from the lack of strong Bible teaching in thechurches of our day that we are in desperate need of these messages. It is time to ignore the efforts of the prosperity gospel and the opinions of the speakers who promote it. As you will understand from these messages, our churches of today are dominated by false teaching and bad interpretations of the Bible. It is time for godly repentance and turning back to the Bible, the whole Bible, and nothing but the Bible! May the LORD open our eyes and stir our hearts to follow His Word without compromise and restore Bible teaching to our pulpits!
