24 Feb 2020 Mark (Program #12)

Mark (Program #12) – The Parables of the Kingdom (2)

All genuine Christian believers love to hear the preaching of the gospel. We admire greatly those whom the Lord had raised up with the gift of evangelism and most of us prayed fervently for the spread of the gospel.  But as such believers we should also asked ourselves a couple of basic questions regarding the gospel.

First, what is the gospel?  Then, what is the goal of the gospel?  If our answer to the first question did not incorporated the realization that the gospel really is just Christ Himself then we need some further enlightenment.  And if our answer to the question in regarding to the goal of the gospel was something along the line that the goal of the gospel is to save sinners so that they can go to heaven then we should pray as Paul the apostle prayed that the Father in His mercy would grant us a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the full knowledge of Him.

Deuteronomy (Program #13) – God’s Choice—The Definite Ground for the Worship of God

The Bible often speaks of God’s love and we take great comfort from the love of God. But the Bible also speaks very much about the things that God hates. You may say “well I know that God hates sin”, that’s true. But specifically they are a few sins that God hates above all others because they damage the very person of God and His Christ or they damage His corporate expression which is the Body of Christ. Many times it is verses from the Old Testament that help us to see things if our eyes are opened.

Deuteronomy 13:4  says “You shall follow Jehovah your God; and you shall fear Him, keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and hold fast to Him.. But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has advocated apostasy from Jehovah your God.”  Apostasy, an Old Testament word but there is a New Testament equal, we will find out from this life study of Deuteronomy.
