Acts (Program #27) – The Conversion of Saul (3)

The book of Acts records one of the most remarkable personal reversals in all of history. Saul of Tarsus was highly educated, respected, and feared. He was the fierce and outstanding persecutor of the early Christians. But in the space of 72 hours, he became the strongest proponent of the One whom he had persecuted. We bring you another look at this most incredible conversion on today’s life study of the Bible.

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…

Acts (Program #26) – The Conversion of Saul (2)

One of the classic lines of New Testament scripture is when Paul, anticipating martyrdom, declares, “I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision”. And, surely he did remain faithful to the vision. But, when did he receive this heavenly vision? And, can we enter into the same vision?

Leviticus (Program #18) -The Trespass Offering for the Sin of God’s People

God appointed specific offerings in the Old Testament with meticulous details but how many of us has scratched the surface on their meaning.  How does the trespass offering in Leviticus apply to our christian life today?  The trespass offering leads us into a lot of rich enjoyment of Christ. This is the point of all these offerings.  That they would lead us into a richer and deeper enjoyment of Christ…

Acts (Program #25) – The Conversion of Saul (1)

One of the many magnificent stories recorded in the passages of the New Testament is the account of the conversion of the fierce persecutor of the church, Saul of Tarsus. The book of Acts gives a rather detailed account of how the Lord gained this fierce opposer. These details, when opened up from the scripture and in God’s shining, afford us one of the most inspiring accounts in all the Bible.

Leviticus (Program #17) -The Sin Offering Christ for the Sins of God’s People (3)

In this universe there are only two sources, God is one source and His enemy Satan is the other.  Most often we find ourselves somewhere in between these two sources and usually not conscious of being under the influence of either one.  We may think that we are basically neutral doing our best to do good but occasionally slipping into sin.  But in fact there is no neutral, everything we do, everything we think, say or even feel has its origin in one or the other of these two universal sources.  To be free not just from sin but from the very source of sin is the focus of the offerings presented to us in Leviticus.  Especially when we see the spiritual applications of these offerings that are developed in the pages of the New Testament.

Acts (Program #24) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (19)

The real Gospel preaching is preaching from the Word of God with Christ, His person and His work as the center, and always paying attention to the leading of the Spirit by remaining in fellowship with Him moment by moment.

The book of Acts relates many marvelous stories of the experiences of the first-century believers. These stories can entertain but more important, they are a pattern, an example to us that we see from the church life as the Lord initiated it on the earth. One such story is that of the Ethiopian eunuch, and how Philip happened upon him and lead him to a full and meaningful salvation. We will pick up that story and all its meanings for us on today’s life study of the Bible.

Leviticus (Program #16) -The Sin Offering Christ for the Sins of God’s People (2)

Leviticus 4:2 speaks of the sin of ignorance, whereas some version translated unintentional sin.  God’s remedy in the Old Testament was the sin offering. Today, we  commit sins unintentionally or inadvertently.  In fact often times the very thing that we determine not to do we end up doing and doing them repeatedly.  Why does this occur even to the most spiritually advanced?  Of course we know that in Christ we are forgiven but still the utter frustration and discouragement that we feel. How many times have we prayed “Lord how long will I continue to do this?”.  But we hope that our fellowship today will be a much practical help to all of God’s seekers as we look at the sin offering in Leviticus and also its New Testament application.

Acts (Program #23) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (18)

The early Church life of the saints in first-century Jerusalem was typified by extremes in their environment. On the one hand, the Lord was moving mightily among them and their enjoyment of Christ was nearly boundless. But outwardly, their environment was harsh due to the oppression and persecution by the religious and political leaders. This persecution resulted in the eventual scattering of believers away from Jerusalem. But, this scattering was used by God to spread the Gospel into new regions. Stay with us for another remarkable exploration of the book of Acts on today’s life study of the Bible.

Leviticus (Program #15) -The Sin Offering Christ for the Sins of God’s People (1)

Studying many of the books of the Old Testament can be somewhat a tedious task for some people.  Even those who loves God’s Word find it difficult to get through various books of the Bible.  Leviticus with all the details it offers on the various offerings that were prescribed in the Old Testament can be such a book.   The key is to see Christ as the reality and fulfillment of all these Old Testament pictures.
