Hebrews (Program #44) – Come Forward to the Holy of Holies and Do Not Shrink Back to Judaism

The call to come forward is a striking element in the book of Hebrews. God’s desire for us is not just to come forward to receive Him for salvation, but we need to live a life of continually coming forward to God in Christ and through the spirit for our daily living. This is our focus today on the life study of the Bible.

The program today is going to begin with a brief review of some of the points that we’ve been covering in our recent broadcasts. Then we are going to launch into an examination of this marvelous phrase that appears at least four times in Hebrews. In the Recovery version, this phrase is translated as “come forward”. It’s really one Greek word but it takes the two words “come forward” to capture the essence of it – and it’s a call from God to His people.

Hebrews (Program #43) – Christ’s Sacrifices Replacing and Terminating Those of the Old Covenant

Today in chapter 10 of Hebrews we will see the good news that our sins and iniquities are completely taken away. And, we will see the better news that we can join in with God for the fulfillment of His desire on earth today.

Twice in the book of Hebrews we have God’s new covenant presented. In this new covenant we have Christ to offer to God for our sins; but not only so, we also have the promise of the divine life being imparted into our being. Once again we will enjoy this new covenant on today’s life study of the Bible.

Hebrews (Program #42) – The Two Manifestations of Christ

As Christians, of course we all believe that Christ came but we also believe that He is coming again. A major objective in His first coming is to put away sin. But what will be His objective in His second coming or manifestation? We will explore both of His manifestations on today’s life study of the Bible.

This message today is called the “The Two Manifestations of Christ”. This term “manifestations” may not be as familiar to some as the term or phrase the “second coming of Christ”. Do these mean the same thing and where do we find this in the book of Hebrews?

Hebrews (Program #41) – The New Covenant and the New Testament

Today we focus on the new covenant and the New Testament. One of the most remarkable revelations in the book of Hebrews.

Anyone familiar with the Bible knows that it is comprised of an Old and New Testament. But have we ever considered just what is a “testament” and how does it pertain to us?

Our message today is titled “The New Covenant and the New Testament”. Are these two terms synonyms? Testament and covenant even as these words are used in our translation of Hebrews are the same word in Greek. So, why do we translate the word “covenant” here and “testament” there? It’s because “covenant” and “testament” are to a certain extent synonymous but in a very significant way different.

Hebrews (Program #40) – The Experiences of Christ Portrayed by the Arrangement of the Furniture of the Tabernacle

Just like the law of life produces peaches, what does the law of the divine life produce? The law of the divine life produces the sons of God who by this law are made the same as God in life, nature, and expression but not in the Godhead.

Perhaps no richer picture of the reality of the Christian life is present in Scripture than the type of the tabernacle. This Old testament structure reveals untold insights of the reality of our experience of Christ. We will focus on it today on the life study of the Bible.

Hebrews (Program #39) – The Type of the Old Covenant and the Reality of the New Covenant

Today we will see that the Holy of Holies has been made open for every Christian to enter in, to know God’s presence and to hear His speaking.

Hebrews is a book of comparisons between the Old Testament and the New. The comparison of the Old Testament tabernacle with the real tabernacle today, the place of God’s presence and glory is our focus. Throughout Hebrews we are continually presented with items/features from the Old Testament and then shown them in their New Testament reality. Today, we’re going to see the tabernacle in such a light.

Hebrews (Program #38) – The Working of the Law of Life

We have to realize God has an eternal plan. This plan is all worked-out by setting up a model and this model was Jesus Christ.

Hebrews, a New Testament book, full of Old Testament types and shadows embodies the central theme of God’s New Testament revelation. That is, that He desires to produce many sons and bring them fully into glory according to the pattern of the first born son, Christ. We will explore this great topic of Scripture in today’s life-study of the Bible.

Hebrews (Program #37) – The Law of Life

God operates in our lives not so much according to what we feel He should be doing but according to the accomplishment of His own purpose.  For this He has given us a new covenant.

Today’s life study will remind many of our listeners of the life study of Romans that we recently completed.  These two books do overlap a lot, it seems, despite the complete different audience and how their truth are presented.

Hebrews (Program #36) – The New Covenant

Hallelujah for the new covenant! In the new covenant we’re just the happy inheritors. Our need is just to take, receive and enjoy.

Laws are a part of every aspect of life. We often think of laws as requirements that are outwardly placed on us, keeping us under an expectation to carry them out. But the Bible presents another kind of law to us, laws that God installs in us, full of the power of His divine life. These laws, the laws of the new covenant, are our focus today on the life study of the Bible.

Hebrews (Program #35) – A Heavenly Minister with a More Excellent Ministry

“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has asked to have you all to sift you as wheat.  But I have made petition concerning you that your faith would not fail; and you, once you have turned again, establish your brothers.” (Luke 22:31-32)  Why didn’t Peter’s faith fail?  It’s because the Lord was praying for him.

Many portions of Scripture talk about salvation, and most of us as Christians feel that we understand this term well enough.  But do we really know what it is to be “saved to the uttermost,” as spoken of in Hebrews 7?  We will see this higher view of salvation in today’s life-study of the Bible.
