2 Peter (Program #7) – The Divine Provision (7)

The book of 2 Peter continues the thought of his first epistle; God’s governmental judgment.  But it also stresses God’s divine provision for His people to enable them to live under such divine ruling.  The first chapter of 2 Peter describes this provision in its various aspects such as the divine power and all things pertaining to life and godliness, the divine promises and even partaking of the divine nature.

These provisions  are all on the side of life.  But Peter also details  provisions on the side of the divine truth.  First we have the testimonies of the apostles themselves who were actual eye-witnesses of the glory and majesty of Christ.  Second we have the prophetic word shining as a lamp in a dark place to enlighten us until the morning star rises in our hearts.

Exodus (Program #54) – Keeping the Law of God by Loving Him and His Word and Becoming One with Him (1)

We’re all familiar with the vows that are an important part of every wedding. Taken out of the context of the wedding, however, these vows can sound very much like restrictions, demands, or even laws. But in the context of the wedding, they become much less burdensome, and in fact are a testimony of absolute love and life long commitment. Have you ever viewed the laws and commandments given by God in this light?

It is revolutionary from the standpoint that it is not what many people understand when you say the giving of the law. Depending whether you’re Jewish or Christian, they could have different thoughts. But it centers around a pretty legal, judicial kind of understanding of God and of His demand upon man.
