The Magnificat, Part One

The Magnificat, Part One

What could be more natural than one expectant mother going to visit another expectant mother? Yet when Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth, the scene also had a supernatural element. In this message on Jesus’ infancy narrative we see God, through His Word, revealing His plan of salvation to two women who responded in humble worship. Alistair Begg encourages us to consider the unique place Mary holds in human history and, like her, to respond with joy at the goodness and mercy of God.

Elizabeth and Zechariah

Elizabeth and Zechariah

After years of prophetic silence, God announced the birth of John the Baptist to one faithful couple. As Alistair Begg explains, the announcement illustrates the mystery of God's work throughout history. The events surrounding the birth of Jesus remind us that the providence of God can be seen at work in ordinary events, both good and bad.

Jesus Condemned to Death, Part One

Jesus Condemned to Death, Part One

At His trial by the religious leaders in Mark 14, Jesus appeared to be a helpless victim and His ministry seemed to be over. But appearances can be deceiving: Even as He went through weakness and tragedy, He was fulfilling prophecy and bringing His redemption plan to completion.

He Shall Reign Forever

He Shall Reign Forever

When you hear the phrase "the Kingdom of God," you may think of Jesus' teachings during His earthly ministry. In this message from Isaiah 9, however, Alistair Begg explains that this Kingdom was prophesied long before our Savior's birth in Bethlehem. Unlike earthly kingdoms, His government and authority will never end, and we can trust in Him completely.

A Child is Born

A Child is Born

At Christmas, we don't celebrate the birth of any ordinary child, but a Child who was born to save and to rule. In this study of Isaiah 9, Alistair Begg reminds us that Jesus is Mediator, beloved Son, Redeemer, Creator, and King. When we consider Christ from this perspective, our eyes are drawn from the manger to the cross and the throne, where our living Savior reigns in power.

Light in the Darkness

Light in the Darkness

When we face spiritual darkness - both in the world around us and within our own hearts - where can we turn for relief? Alistair Begg reminds us that only the light of redemption revealed in Christ Jesus can overcome our darkness and deal with our alienation from God. Our celebration of Advent should anticipate the great celebration that will take place when Jesus returns in glory.

It is HIStory!

Preparing our hearts to celebrate Christ's coming should be a priority, but it is often neglected. Alistair Begg explains that Advent provides an opportunity for us to consider how Jesus fulfilled not just specific predictions, but all of the Old Testament during His earthly ministry. When we consider the coming of the Lord Jesus in this context, we discover that all of the Bible is history - and HIS story.

A Wake-Up Call!

A Wake-Up Call!

At the end of Mark 13, Jesus tells His disciples that no one knows when His return will be - even He does not know! What then is the purpose of prophecy in the Bible? Knowing that our Lord will certainly return, but not knowing when, motivates us to obey His command, "Stay awake."

The Coming of the Son of Man

The Coming of the Son of Man

In Mark 13 Jesus answered the disciples’ questions about the end of time. When the Son of Man returns, all that is wrong will be made right, and justice will be perfectly served.

Be On Guard!

Be On Guard!

When we consider prophetic passages like Mark 13, it helps to look at large principles instead of zooming in on details. We cannot fully understand God's providence in our daily lives: how much less can we understand His cosmic purposes? The Lord Jesus takes the correct approach by focusing on principles like "God reigns," "Be watchful," and "Have peace."
