1 & 2 Kings (Program #8) – The Reign of Ahab Over Israel (1)

In the Old Testament we find the record of the deeds of many of the great and powerful men of God.  Of all of these, perhaps none was more mighty and performs more miracles than the prophet Elijah.  In a way Elijah typifies and represents all of the prophets of the Old Testament, even appearing with Moses on the mount of transfiguration when the Lord Jesus revealed His glory to some of His disciples.

The first appearance of Elijah in the Bible is in 1 King 17, where he is called by Jehovah to confront the evil King Ahab, whose heart had been fully turned away from the God of Abraham to the idols of Jezebel, his wife.

Revelation (Program #26) - Christ Coming to Take Possession of the Earth

“And I saw another strong Angel coming down out of heaven, clothed with a cloud; And He placed His right foot on the sea and the left on the land; And He cried out with a loud voice just as a lion roars.” – Revelation 10:1-3

When Christ comes to take possession of the earth at the end of this age, He will come not as a lamb, but as a roaring lion.

1 & 2 Kings (Program #7) – The Divisions of the Kingdom of Israel

The Lord has committed much into the hands of His people.  For example, in the Old Testament, Israel bore the responsibility of maintaining Jehovah’s testimony on the earth.  One of the key factors that the Lord was very eager to maintain among His people was their oneness because their oneness reflects His oneness.  “The Lord is one”, the Old Testament people would declare and it is true.  So following the reign of Solomon, when the nation of Israel was split into two sections; a northern kingdom under the rule of Jeroboam, Solomon’s servant and a southern kingdom, under Rehoboam, Solomon’s son.  This was a grave matter to Jehovah.  So it should be also to us today.  As we consider and study the history of God’s move among His people, the testimony of the oneness of God’s people continues to be a vital matter to Him and it’s a matter that is far too often taken for granted by His people.

Revelation (Program #25) - Further Judgment Upon Men – the Sixth Trumpet

Just where are we now? And where are we going to be in the future? These two questions have haunted man for thousands of years. But today, on life study of the Bible as we come to the book of Revelation, we will see God’s assessment of the present and future situation.

1 & 2 Kings (Program #6) – The Reign of Solomon (5)

Solomon reigned during the height of the nation of Israel’s glory.  But he did not reign in life.  Romans 5:17 says “those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” We are continuing in our life study of 1 Kings today, but if you stay with us, we believe that you will hear a unique word about King Solomon and how it applies to us, the believers in Christ today.

Revelation (Program #24) – The Judgment Upon Men – the Fifth Trumpet

Jesus said in Matthew 24:21 “For at that time there will be great tribulation, such as has not occurred from the beginning of the world until now, nor shall by any means ever occur.”  Today on life study of the Bible we are going to be looking at the great tribulation that our Lord Jesus referred to.

Prayer is a popular subject among all the people of all faith on the earth today.   But what kind of prayer is God looking for?  Today we are continuing the life study from the Old Testament book of 1 Kings chapter 7 and 8 where we see the building of the temple and specifically the matter of worship to God and prayer.

1 & 2 Kings (Program #4) – The Reign of Solomon (3)

More than a thousand years before the birth of Christ, in 1012 B.C. that was 480 years after God had brought the children of Israel out of Egypt, Solomon began to build the temple, the House of Jehovah.  Today on the life study of 1 Kings, we are going to talk some aspects of the temple that I am pretty sure that you have never heard before.

Worthy is the Lamb who as been slain. Many of us have sung of the Lamb’s worthiness to redeem us in countless hymns. But how many of us have praised the Lamb for His worthiness to open the secret of God’s economy as revealed in Revelation chapter 5?
