Hebrews (Program #63) – The Law – the Testimony of God
The law of God, or the law of commandments as it’s sometimes called, presents on the surface a significant demand on mankind. And, most religions are focused on motivating people to do their best to keep this law. But, is this the real intention or function of the law? And, what do laws say about the person that makes the law? These are questions that God wants to answer if we can get His light in His word.
Hebrews (Program #60) – Enjoying the Hidden Manna in the Presence of God
In your experience, does it seem that God is far off from you? That you really love Him and want to serve Him, but it seems you’re not as close to Him as you would like to be. If so, today’s message will help you draw near to God.
We are going to focus on our program today on eating the spiritual food. The spiritual food is a concept that most of the Christians hold. But you heard varying interpretations of what that really is. What is it to feast upon the Lord or to eat Christ as our spiritual food?
Hebrews (Program #59) – The Manna in the Golden Pot
In the Old Testament, manna was something given by God to his people openly and freely. But, a small portion of this manna was offered by the priest back to God and hidden within a golden pot in the Holy of Holies. This hidden portion in the golden pot represents something so rich in experience.
Some of the Lord’s promises to His faithful overcomers are quite regal and heavenly. But among the final promises is that His overcomers would eat of the hidden manna. This hidden portion is spoken of in Hebrews chapter 9. And if you have never considered such a matter, you will be treated to a feast in today’s life study of the Bible.
Of all the heavenly things that we have seen and discussed in this life study of Hebrew, one of the real treasures without question has to do with something so simple, and so small as a round wafer that we eat called Manna.
Hebrews (Program #57) – Enter Within the Veil and Go Outside the Camp
The book of Hebrews contains a dual calling for the people of God, we are first called to enter within the veil. Second, we’re called to go forth unto Him outside the camp. Within the veil and outside the camp. This is our dual destination on today’s life study of the Bible.
Hebrews (Program #56) – The Experiences of Christ for the Church Life
The book of Hebrews marvelously presents the heavenly Christ again and again. But, interwoven in the presentation is God’s purpose, the Church. Stay with us with for today’s life study of the Bible as we see the wonderful Christ together with the glorious Church in the book of Hebrews.
Hebrews (Program #55) – Ten Practical Virtues for the Church Life
Near the end of the book of Hebrews, several practical virtues are extolled as they pertain to the practical daily living of the believers. They seem outward and obvious from a casual glance. But, a more critical examination reveals much about both God’s desire and need, as we will see today on the life study of the Bible.
Hebrews (Program #52) – Do Not Fall Away from Grace
No. Do not fall away from Grace. That is, don’t fall away from the enjoying of Christ in the New Covenant way. But rather, take grace, stand in grace, run the race, enjoying Christ every day.
Hebrews chapter 11 is a famous chapter in the Bible focusing on faith. It reveals marvelously that faith is the free gift of God, and further that it makes God real to us. But, there is a goal to the giving of this gift, and the goal is presented in chapter 12. The goal of faith is our topic today on the life study of the Bible.
In today’s life study, we look at the Christian walk: A walk of holiness, righteousness, and peace as we enter into the Holy of Holies in our everyday Christian life.
The tabernacle of the old testament is a marvelous picture of our experience of Christ, and is a favorite theme in the book of Hebrews. At the center of the tabernacle is the Holy of Holies. Holy, because God’s very presence is there. But, we can also be there as we will see in today’s life study of the Bible.
You know it’s very important that we, believers in Christ, realize that we’re not just forgiven sinners that are waiting to go to heaven. There is a race for us to run, and there is a goal for us to reach.
At least four different times, the apostle Paul likened the Christian life to a race that we need to run. As we walk in spirit, we are also running this race with a great cloud of heavenly onlookers urging us to the finish line, with the promise of great reward to those who finish. We will look at the universal race on today’s life study of the Bible.
