Hebrews (Program #65) – Being Conformed to the Image of the Firstborn Son by the Working of the Law of Life

The central thought of the whole Bible is “God wants to have many sons for His expression”. Stay tuned today to hear how we can cooperate with God in His wonderful purpose.

Hebrews, though written to an entirely different group of believers, picks up one of the central themes of the book of Romans, and that is, bringing many sons into glory. But, this thought is not just common between these two great books of the new testament; it’s a central thought of the entire divine revelation. Simply, this is God’s great desire and plan for us. It will also be our focus on today’s life study of the Bible.

Isaiah (Program #42) – The Servant of Jehovah Revealed in the New Testament Economy

Isaiah (Program #41) – The Servant of Jehovah, the Arm of Jehovah, the Reigning God, & the Exalted Christ in Relation to Israel’s Return & Restoration

Isaiah beseech the Lord in chapter 51 of his prophecy, “Arise, arise! Put on strength, O arm of Jehovah; Arise as in the days of old.”  Surely God has done many mighty things for His people throughout ages.  As when He dried up the Red Sea for them to walk through as they escape from Egypt.  But to us Christ is also the arm of Jehovah; releasing us and rescuing us from our captivity.  Staying with us for another encouraging and uplifting life study of the Bible.

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 #62) – The Budding Rod (2)

We trust the Lord as the Spirit to enlighten us and humble us and re-educate us so that we may forsake the ways of the world and the customs of the nations and follow God’s way as revealed in God’s word.

Hebrews 9:4 mentions Aaron’s rod that budded. This mentions a profound element in God’s economy that is the resurrection life of Christ. But to get into that significance is to mention something critical and how God will accomplish His eternal purpose.

Isaiah (Program #39) – The Servant of Jehovah as a Covenant and a Light

A classic hymn of the Christian faith written by one of the giants in ages past asks the question “and can it be that I shall gain an interest in the Savior’s blood?”  A resounding “yes” shall be our instantaneous reply.  That is if we have realized that all that God has promised even guaranteed to us.  We gladly present this binding guarantee from the pages of Isaiah on today’s life study of the Bible.

20 Sep 2016 Hebrews (Program #61)

Hebrews (Program #61) – The Budding Rod (1)

In this message we see that Aaron’s budding rod is a type of the resurrected, living, feeding Christ as God’s authority. May we all get into the Holy of Holies, that is, into our spirit to enjoy this Christ as the resurrection life for the fulfillment of God’s eternal purpose.

When rebellion rose up among God’s people, He provided a test to make clear who was His chosen authority. This case makes for an interesting Bible story but far more the details reveal remarkable insights into God’s heart’s desire for the accomplishment of His purpose.

Isaiah (Program #38) – The Servant of Jehovah as Typified by Cyrus, Israel and Isaiah

On one hand, Christ and the church of God are uniquely New Testament.  The term and historical placement of Christ and His church fall beyond the scope of the Old Testament Scriptures.  Yet as surely as God is in Christ, Christ and the church are clearly seen in passage after passage of the Old Testament as well.  If not directly then how do we see Him and how do we know the church?  We have delighted in bringing you the Christ found in the writings of Isaiah.  We look forward to bringing you to another revelation from Isaiah today and that of His church, His House on this life study of the Bible.
