Numbers (Program #10) – Being Formed into an Army (11)

Inserted in the record of Numbers where Jehovah formed and set His army is the account of His divine provision for the people.  This was not the material provision of food and water.  That had already been accomplished.  This was the provision of two necessary items.  For the people to approach Him, God provided several different offerings.  But from God to His people, He provided the holy anointing oil.  A marvelous compound that was to be spread or painted to all of the holy utensils even onto the tabernacle itself.  This ointment is so rich in its symbolism yet it is nearly ignored completely by readers and even many ministers of God’s word.  We will spend the next half hour to see it, to appreciate it and by the Lord’s mercy even to experience it.

Leviticus (Program #19) – The Law of the Burnt Offering

Leviticus chapter 6:8-9 say, “And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying / Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt offering…” Has the law of the burnt offering ever entered into your own consideration?

We’ve gone through the beginning chapters of Leviticus and the details of the main offerings: burnt offering, meal offering, sin offering, trespass offering and the peace offering. The next few programs we want to cover the laws that are associated with these five offerings. Today, we focus on the law of the burnt offering and how it typifies our own experience of offering ourselves to the Lord.  This offering brings up the subject of consecration. It speaks not only of Christ who is the reality of the burnt offering but also of our experience in the handling of it…

Galatians (Program #41) – Walking by the Spirit to Live Christ

Before we were saved, most of us were quite aware that we and God were separate, far removed from each other. But after we’re saved, God is not separate and distant. Quite to the contrary, He was literally conceived in us and born into us. By regeneration, we and God have become one Spirit. How marvelous is this divine reality, but does it match our understanding?  Even more, does it match our experience? Don’t miss today’s life study of the Bible.

Galatians (Program #36) – Sow unto the Spirit for the New Creation

The book of Galatians ends with this marvelous word in Galatians 6:18 “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers. Amen.”  If grace is God Himself in Christ through the Spirit to be our daily supply, it’s most helpful to find out how to experience such grace be with your spirit. These are the words that we’ll focus on in today’s life study of the Bible.

Galatians (Program #28) – Crucifying the Flesh to Walk by the Spirit

To walk in Spirit is to live, move, even have our being according to the Spirit. In essence, it means we live as genuine sons of God, matching our Father in His life and nature. For this, we’ve been saved. And for this, we’ve been positioned in Christ. So what is it that keeps this wonderful sonship from being our day by day practical, real experience?   Don’t miss today’s very helpful and enlightening life study of the Bible.

Galatians (Program #9) – Dead to Law but Living to God

Did you know the Bible tells us that in Christ, not only have we died to sin, but we’ve also died to the law? In Christ we are free from sin. Wonderful! But equally in Christ, we’re free from law. Do these two spiritual truths describe your condition and your experience? Please stay with us today as we see our organic union with Christ and how this union can become our living reality.

Exodus (Program #143) – The Golden Incense Altar (4) Appreciation of the Two Altars, Two Altars in our Experience

“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you.”  This is a frequently quoted passage from Matthew chapter 6.  Of course, in context “all theses things” refer to our practical and physical needs and the promise is very clear; if we are occupied by seeking God’s kingdom and God’s righteousness, we need not be consumed with praying for our own needs.  But what is it to seek the kingdom and God’s righteousness?

27 Sep 2015 Exodus (Program #125)

Exodus (Program #125) – The Priestly Garments (10 & 11) Urim and Thummin

There is a very tender picture of our Lord Jesus holding His redeemed ones in love in the Old Testament book of Exodus.  This picture matches the New Testament revelation as well as our own experience of being held by His love.  But the picture in the Old Testament reveals that God’s people are not only held by His love, they are also upheld by His strength.

This week we have been looking at Ephod and the 3 items that were attached to it or added to it in the priest’s garment.  These are the two shoulder pieces that had onyx stones attached and then also the breast plate worn in front by the priest.  This piece also contains precious stones, 12 of them actually.  We seen that the Ephod, this vest-like outer garment is a clear picture of Jesus Christ.  What are these added items, these precious stone items signify?

17 Sep 2015 2 Corinthians (Program #33)

2 Corinthians (Program #33) – The Putting to Death of Jesus and the Renewing of the Inward Man (3)

2 Corinthians 4:10 says,  “Always bearing about in the body the putting to death of Jesus that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.”  Then in verse 16, the apostle Paul goes on to say “Therefore we do not lose heart; but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.

The experience of the putting to death of Jesus results in the renewing of the inner man.  We are going to look at the putting to death of Jesus and what it means on today’s life study on 2 Corinthians.

2 Corinthians (Program #24) – The Essence of the New Covenant Ministry (1)

The apostle Paul’s writings in the New Testament are rich with the use of metaphors. He frequently used metaphors to help convey the deep and profound meaning of the highest spiritual truths contain in scriptures.

Two such metaphors are found in 2 Corinthians chapter 3. In this chapter we, the believers are first liken to letters, letters of Christ been written or inscribed by the apostles with the Holy Spirit as the ink. How about that?

Later in chapter 3 we become mirrors that both behold and reflect the glory of the Lord. Metaphors like these inspired by the Spirit Himself do help unlock the unsearchable riches of Christ both in our experience and in the working out of God’s great plan, a full salvation.
