Life in the Early Church
 

The Book of Acts - TELUGU / July 15, 2018

After the pouring of the Holy Spirit, early believers thought that everything was fulfilled: they had received the Spirit and shared the gospel with the whole world. Not that the apostles had left Jerusalem and had gone out to the world, but the world had come to them (Acts 2:5–11). And during this same time the early believers faced opposition and also some disagreements between the Jews and the gentiles, so God had to intervene to keep the church united.

 
Pentecost
 

The Book of Acts - TELUGU / July 08, 2018

The Pentecost became the first spiritual harvest of the Christian church, when the Holy Spirit was poured out more abundantly than ever before, this outpouring of the Spirit was a sudden, supernatural event that transformed the apostles from simple and obscure Galileans into men of conviction and courage who would change the world.

 
You Will Be My Witnesses
 

The Book of Acts - TELUGU / July 01, 2018

Jesus could not stay with the disciples forever in human flesh. Not only did His incarnation impose upon Him a physical limitation in the context of a worldwide mission, but His ascension and exaltation in heaven were necessary in order for the Spirit to come.The Holy Spirit, who, ratifying their efforts with many signs and wonders—would empower and lead the disciples on a mission that would reach the ends of the earth. After the ascension of Jesus, the disciples had the task of taking the gospel to the ends of the world and be His witnesses.

 
The Return of Our Lord Jesus
 

Preparation for the End Time - TELUGU / June 24, 2018

However distant in time the Creation of the world (our beginning) is from the second coming of Jesus (our end, at least the end of this sinful existence), these events are linked. The God who created us (John 1:1–3) is the same God who will return and, in an instant, “in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet” (1 Cor. 15:52, NKJV), will bring about our ultimate redemption. In our beginning, indeed, we find our end. In this study of the Bible, we will learn about the final of all final events, at least as far as our present world is concerned: the second coming of our Lord Jesus.

 
Babylon and Armageddon
 

Preparation for the End Time - TELUGU / June 17, 2018

The book of Revelation comes filled with images and language taken directly from the Old Testament. For instance, the name Babylon appears six times in Revelation. But it is not talking about the ancient kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar, which had passed from world history hundreds of years earlier. Instead, John was using Old Testament imagery to express a truth. In this case, Babylon—a massive political and religious power that had oppressed God’s people—now describes the massive religious and political powers that will seek to do the same in the end times. Something similar occurs with the word Armageddon, which occurs only in Revelation but is based on a Hebrew phrase that seems to mean “Mount of Megiddo,” a reference to a location in ancient Israel. A great deal of speculation exists about Armageddon, with many people looking for a massive military battle to take place there, in Megiddo, near the end of the world. We will look at Babylon and Armageddon, and seek to learn what the Bible is telling us with these images.

 
God’s Seal or The Beast’s Mark
 

Preparation for the End Time - TELUGU / June 10, 2018

One of the most telling signs of God’s true last-day people is their proclamation of the third angel’s message, which warns against receiving the mark of the beast. However, despite there being no more serious warning in all the Bible, many confusing ideas as to what this mark is have been suggested over the years: a bar code in the forehead, a credit card number, or some biometric identification. We should not be surprised at the proliferation of confusing ideas in Babylon. After all, its name means “confusion.” But God’s remnant people need a clear understanding of this topic in order to proclaim the third angel’s message with power. Let’s try to understand better what the mark of the beast is and how to avoid it—by receiving the seal of God.

 
America and Babylon
 

Preparation for the End Time - TELUGU / June 03, 2018

In Daniel 7—after the rise of Babylon (lion), Media-Persia (bear), and Greece (leopard)—came the final earthly power, Rome. It started out as pagan Rome and then turned into papal Rome, the little horn power of Daniel 7:7, 8; 19–21; 23–25; which rose directly out of the fourth beast. We saw, too, that many of the characteristics of papal Rome, as depicted in these verses in Daniel 7, reappear in the sea beast of Revelation 13:1–10. Hence, Bible scholars have seen Rome as one of the key antagonists in the end-time scenario of Revelation 13. However, Rome is not alone. Another power is depicted. we will focus on Revelation 13 and the events and powers portrayed in it. What do these events mean, and how can we be prepared for them?

 
End Time Deceptions
 

Preparation for the End Time - TELUGU / May 27, 2018

Even in heaven, before his expulsion, Satan worked to deceive the angels. Lucifer went forth to diffuse the spirit of discontent among the angels, he endeavored to excite dissatisfaction concerning the laws that governed heavenly beings, intimating that they imposed an unnecessary Restraint. In Eden, he disguised himself as a serpent and used trickery against Eve. Unfortunately, he’s much smarter, more powerful, and craftier than any of us, which is why we need to cling to Jesus and to His Word in order to protect ourselves from his wiles. “But you who held fast to the Lord your God are alive today, every one of you” (Deut. 4:4, NKJV). The principle espoused here, indeed, still holds true today, as well. we will look at some of the devil’s most effective deceptions and how we can be protected from them.

 
Worship The Creator
 

Preparation for the End Time - TELUGU / May 20, 2018

God unfolds truth to humanity at the time it is needed, with more and more light being given by the Lord over the ages. The coming of Jesus, who proclaimed that “ ‘the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many’ ” (Mark 10:45, NKJV) is, of course, a greater revelation of the gospel truth. we believe that the three angels’ messages of Revelation 14:6–12 is “present truth” for those living in the last days prior to Christ’s return and the fulfillment of all our hopes as Christians. The first angel’s message contains truths crucial for those who seek to stay faithful amid end-time perils.
