Matthew (Program #24) – The Decree of the Kingdom’s Constitution (12)

Matthew chapter 5, 6 and 7 are chapters of the Bible that are often quoted, even by unbelievers because their thought of, is chapters containing marvelous ethical, even philosophical thought.  But a careful examination reveals this portion of Scripture to be far beyond mere human philosophy or ethics.  Those things as well as the very best man can master are scraped away by the narrow and constricted path leading to the kingdom of the heavens.

Genesis (Program #75) – Inheriting Grace

Our life study today in Genesis brings us to somewhat of a transition.  Of course, we have been dealing for many many programs now with Abraham.  Today we begin to look at Abraham’s son Isaac.  Before we get to that I wonder in several places in Scriptures, God is referred to as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  What is the significance of this particular title and what is it implied?

Matthew (Program #23) – The Decree of the Kingdom’s Constitution (11)

In order for us to live under the heavenly ruling of the kingdom, we must be very careful in dealing with others.  Matthew chapters 5 and 6 touch things deep within ourselves; like our temper and lust, even our anxiety about  riches.  But chapter 7 brings us to the crucial matter of how we deal with other people.

As we once again consider the account in Matthew and how much the Lord cares for the way we handle other people.

Matthew (Program #22) – The Decree of the Kingdom’s Constitution (10)

Matthew 6:21 says “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”  This simple expression is full of meaning.  If we expect to get our heart on heaven and on the heavenly things, we need to get our treasure there first.

Matthew (Program #21) – The Decree of the Kingdom’s Constitution (9)

Matthew 6:1 says “but take heed not to do your righteousness before men in order to be gazed at by them; otherwise, you have no reward with your Father who is in the heavens.”   It then goes on to list three activities that were frequently done by the religious people of that day in public; to pray, to give alms to the poor and to fast.  But the Lord’s encouragement to His people is to do these things in secret where only He can see.

Genesis (Program #72) – The Marriage of Isaac – A Practical Living in Oneness with the Lord

With the casual reading, Genesis appears to be a book of creation with some stories of some of the great men of the Old Testament.  But I think during the course of these life study programs we have seen much much more.

The real focus of the book of Genesis is showing God of purpose carrying out His economy for His purpose with mankind.  God is not a God of remedy for mistakes but He is a God of purpose to carry out what He intended from the earliest time.

Matthew (Program #20) – The Decree of the Kingdom’s Constitution (8)

For centuries, Christians have not had a clear understanding of the law.  On the one had Romans and Galatians tell us that the law is over.  For example, Romans 10:4 says “Christ is the end of the law unto righteousness to everyone who believes.”  Base on verses like that a lot of Christians thinks that we can ignore the law altogether…
