Numbers (Program #22) – Fighting (3)

In the Old Testament book of Numbers there is the story of a gentile prophet named Balaam.  The Moabite king Balak had hired him to curse and prophesy against God’s people Israel, who Balak the king greatly feared.  Yet at each instance, as much as Balaam desire to please the king, whatever he spoke concerning Israel turned out not to be a curse but a blessing.  These parables recorded in Numbers 22 through 24 had a greater impact than just the Lord’s frustration of a heathen king with an evil intention towards God’s people.  These parables actually revealed how God views His people, whether the nation of Israel in the Old Testament or the church in this age despite the failures and weaknesses.  God sees the church as glorious, victorious and beautiful.  How can this be?  it’s because He sees the church, the believers, in Christ.

Matthew (Program #64) – Prophecy of the Kingdom (3)

In Matthew 23, the disciples asked the Lord Jesus for the signs of His coming back and establishing the age of the kingdom. And though He told them that no one except God the Father knows the exact time, yet there are definite signs and indications that will point to His imminent return. As we look at the signs that He gave them in chapter 24, we can see very clearly that many of these things are taking place today, in our lifetime. So the word is clear to watch and be ready. What happens to us as believers if we are not watchful and ready?
