1 John 3:19-21 say
19 “And in this we will know that we are of the truth, and we will persuade our heart before Him, Because if our heart blames us, it is because God is greater than our heart and knows all things.Beloved, if our heart does not blame us, we have boldness toward God;“
Hebrews (Program #18) – The Remaining Sabbath Rest (1)
Today we come in Hebrews to the matter of the Sabbath rest. How does a Christian enter in to the Sabbath rest? This is the subject of today’s life study.
Hebrews 4:9 says, “So then there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.” Many Christians debate whether our Sabbath is Saturday or Sunday or some other time period yet in the future. What is the New Testament revelation on this topic and how critical it is for us as Christians?
The New Testament doesn’t say too much about this issue but I guess it’s fitting that it is addressed in this book of Hebrews.

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” These words from the apostle Paul from the first chapter of this book perhaps summarize better than any, the essence of the Epistle of Paul to the Philippians. A book focus on the experience of Christ, experiencing Him in every situation, magnifying Him whether through life or through death.
Welcome to our final broadcast from the life study of Philippians. We have a special program today. We have enjoyed a tremendous life study through the past weeks and months as we have explored the riches in this book of Philippians. For the sake of those who perhaps missed many of the programs we decided for our final broadcast today to go back to the weeks to pick up a few highlight portions and try to bring them together to give you a taste and idea of what we have experience and enjoy in this tremendous life study.
For the first portion of this program we like to go back to life study on magnifying Christ by living Him…
