1 John (Program #30) – Proving the Spirits (2)

In 1 John we are warned to prove every spirit to see whether it is of God. The apostle John was inoculating the believers against the spirit of Antichrist. Just the term “spirit of Antichrist” probably give raise to thoughts of immense evil and wickedness. Yet John tells very simply that any spirit that denies that Jesus has come in the flesh is the Spirit of Antichrist.  What is the significant of denying that Jesus has come in the flesh?

Exodus (Program #89) – The Ark of the Testimony (6)

Christ, through His blood solves our problem with God.  The Bible calls this propitiation, a big word.  It may sound daunting, but it’s a most wonderful word when we get into all that it means for us.  Another related word speaks of the place of propitiation.  This is the place where God meets and speaks with man.  This place in the Old Testament was the Ark of the Testimony.  But to find this place today where we can meet with God and hear God’s speaking is the most blessed discovery for His people.   Don’t miss our final program on the Ark of the Testimony on today’s life study of the Bible.

Today’s word is somewhat of an overview or summary.  The Ark was, as we’ve discussed,  a piece of furniture.  Actually, the most important or preeminent item in the tabernacle.  As we’ve seen, basically it was a box.  A box made of a particular kind of wood, acacia wood and this box was overlaid within and without with gold.  We’ve much impressed that these materials hold a great deal of significance as we see the Ark is a type of Christ.  For just as Christ has two natures, human and divine, these materials represents these two natures.
