Anchor of Truth

There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships. Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 73 The Revealing of God in Jesus Christ


The last book of the Bible is entitled “The Revelation of Jesus Christ.” Paul said that the gospel he preached did not come from man but from the revelation of Jesus Christ. What do we mean by “the revelation of Jesus Christ”? How does that come to us? When we use the term “revelation” many become reserved or even afraid. They begin to think of some strange supernatural appearance and associate the statement with the devil or deception. But the word “revelation” is very scriptural and we need not be afraid of using it in the right way. In fact, it speaks of something very critical that we need today concerning Christ our Lord. Let us come to the Lord and ask God to give us a proper understanding in this matter.


• Revelation means “unveiling something that was hidden”
o Christ was hidden (or veiled) to the natural man
o It required a supernatural act of God to reveal who He really was (Matt. 16:13-17)
• A foretaste of who Christ really was came on the mount of transfiguration (Matt: 17:1-8)
• A further unveiling of Christ came in all the events surrounding Calvary (Matt: 27:54)
• It was the revelation of the risen Christ that formed the foundation of the faith of the first Apostles
o Thomas (John 20:28)
o Peter (I Cor. 15:5, 2 Peter 1:16-18)
o Paul (Acts 9:1-9,Gal. 1:11-17)
• Paul is given as an example for us in many ways (I Tim. 1:12-16)
• Each one of us needs a personal “revelation” of who Christ is (God revealed in the flesh)
• That revelation is a critical part of bringing substance to our faith (Eph. 1:15-23)
o The hope of His calling
o His inheritance in us
o The power available to those who believe
• Christ is now the ascended Lord of all creation (Revelation chapter 1)
• The grace for the churches is in who He is (Revelation chapters 2 &3)
• It is “Christ in you the hope of glory” (Col. 1:27-29)
