Text: Acts 3:1-26. It’s important to notice that this miraculous healing took place at the temple (vv.1-8, 16). Even though God was doing something new, it started first with His people – Israel, right at their place of worship. For 1,000 years the temple was the place that symbolised God’s forgiving grace. The animals that[…]

The Preacher pointed out that on Pentecost Sunday, Christians worldwide are reminded and also celebrate the Gift of the Holy[…]

Good morning Saints. I hope that you had a good week; because this week that had apparently been a fruitful week in many ways, at least for me, ended on a very sad note, with Prof. Muhwezi, our parishioner, losing his dear wife, Sarlome Kyatuheire Muhwezi, in a road accident. Only last year, their son[…]

Text: Acts 2:1-47. This chapter has caused a lot of division among Christians. Those who call themselves “Pentecostals” have a certain understanding and application of “tongues” which may be incorrect (4-8,11b, 32-33, 42). What the Bible means by tongues is “known human languages that were not known by the speakers but were understood by the listeners” (2:7-8). Tongues are[…]

Text: Acts 1:1-26. The book of Acts is written by Luke, the same man who wrote the Gospel we call “Luke”. Though this book is often called The Book of the Acts of the Apostles (which it is), verse 1 tells us that Acts is actually the continuing work of Jesus Christ (vv. 4-5,8). It is also important[…]

Text: Esther 10:1-3. Mordecai was once a man who stood at, and could not be allowed beyond the gate, God raised him up to become second in command of the vast Persian Empire (8:9). The secret was; he honoured God, he maintained he was of a Jewish identity even when it meant his death (3:4). Mordecai was great because[…]

Text: Esther 9:1-32. Since Haman had decreed that Jews should be killed and their property confiscated, this decree as per the laws of Persians and Medes could not be reversed, instead Mordecai made the King sign a new one to counter what Haman had written against the Jews so as to protect themselves from their enemies. No one could[…]

Text: Esther 8:1-17. As it was the custom in Persian tradition, a traitor’s property would return to the King and in this case the King gave Haman’s property (5:11) to queen Esther, who also put it under the custody of Mordecai (vv.1-2). Mordecai was more honoured than the first instance by matching out in royal colours (white and blue)[…]

Text: Esther 7:1-10. The feast went on for the second day, Esther reveals Haman as a foe and enemy of Jews (v.6) who wanted to destroy, kill and annihilate the Jews (v.4). She quoted the exact words used by Haman (3:13). Haman’s honour then turned into shame and then to horror! Haman was then hanged on the[…]
