Psalms (Program #17) – The Mixed Expressions of the Psalmist’s Sentiment in His Enjoyment of God in God’s House (3)
The Bible is a book of two’s. In it we have two trees, two men, two creations and two purposes or plans, represented by two mountains. All of which become two lines that run through entire Scripture resulting eventually in two outcomes or two consummations. The book of Psalms clearly shows these two lines often giving us stark contrasts between the two, helping us to bring into sharp focus that God desires all His people to always be occupied with the central line, the line of Christ, the line of life.
Luke (Program #21) – The Ministry of the Man-Savior in Galilee (12)
The gospel of Luke reveals the Jubilee prophesied in the Old Testament; the release of the oppressed from their bondage and captivity and the return of God’s people to their rightful portion of the enjoyment of God. Yet even as He proclaimed the Jubilee to His disciples and began to apply it to the oppressed people, it was clear that they themselves were far from it in their own experience. likely we also may rejoice at the hearing of such a word but are we living in its reality? Well, take heart. For just as the Lord was patient and faithful with the disciples to lead them step by step into the Jubilee, He is doing the same with us.
