Jude (Program #2) – Evils of the Apostates and Their Punishment Under the Lord’s Judgment

Jude charges the believers in verses three and four in his epistle,  “…to earnestly contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who of old have been written of beforehand for this judgment, ungodly men, perverting the grace of our God into licentiousness and denying our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.”

Exodus (Program #101) – The Curtain for the Door of the Tent (1)

Exodus shows us that the tabernacle represents God’s dwelling place and the place where He can meet with man.  But separating God from man are two curtains or veils.  Before man can meet with God, he must first pass through these layers of separation.  What is the significance of these curtains of blue, purple and scarlet?  Please set the next 30 minutes aside for your own journey through the veil.

We’ve been looking at the tabernacle according to the biblical account.  As we’ve done so, the order that the book of Exodus presents these things is very interesting.  It always seems to start from the inside out and from the top down.  This is backward it seems to our natural  way of looking at things describing things.  This pattern is going to very much be maintained today.  Let’s spend a minute or two discussing the significance of how these description are ordered.

Jude verse 3 says, “Beloved, while using all diligence to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you and exhort you to earnestly contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints.

Exodus (Program #100) – The Veil Within the Tabernacle (2)

The tabernacle was divided into two distinct segments or chambers; the Holy of Holies where God Himself resided and commune with His people.  The other chamber is the Holy Place, full of the things of God, even types of God, types of Christ, but not God Himself.  This is somewhat like our own walk, our own experience with the Lord Jesus.  Sometimes we are walking with the very person of Christ yet at other times we seems to be occupied just with spiritual things, with items but we are missing His living presence.

Today we conclude our fourth week of messages dealing with the tabernacle.   This has been a remarkable twenty programs because the types and pictures that we are seeing interpreted have been applied almost exclusively to our experience of Christ and not just teachings and doctrines.

3 John (Program #2) – Imitation not of the Evil but of the Good

The third epistle of John verses 11 and 12 say, “Beloved, do not imitate the evil, but the good. He who does good is of God; he who does evil has not seen God. To Demetrius testimony has been borne by all and by the truth itself; and we also testify, and you know that our testimony is true.

Exodus (Program #99) – The Veil Within the Tabernacle (1)

The tabernacle is a marvelous, vivid picture of the deepest experiences of Christ by His loving believers.  The time spent to see the meaning and significance of its aspects and details is well worthwhile and will be richly rewarded by a deeper love and appreciation for Christ and His incomparable word.

Today we are going to consider the veil that was located within the tabernacle as a separation between the two chambers, the Holy Place and the Holy of Holies.  This aspect of the tabernacle is really quite mysterious to most people.  Both chambers contain items that clearly represents Christ and our experience of Christ.

3 John (Program #1) – Hospitality to the Traveling Workers

Did you know that Bible wants you to prosper in material things and being in good physical health even as your soul prospers?  2 John 2 says, ‘Beloved, concerning all things I wish that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.”  We can all relate to prosperity and material things and good physical health which are important.  But how many of us understand what the apostle John meant when he talked about our soul prospering?

Exodus (Program #98) – The Boards of the Tabernacle (2)

The tabernacle as seen in Exodus is the marvelous picture of God’s dwelling place, the church.  It’s walls were carefully crafted of boards that were joined together to give it strength and stability.  God’s house should be the same today.  But sadly, many groups lack such strong standing.  The real testimony of God’s House, must be firm and unshakable.  As His dwelling place our home, it must be grounded in His redemption and brightly expressing the person of Christ Himself.

Today we come to another message dealing with the boards that form the walls of the tabernacle.  Yesterday we saw that these boards were made of acacia wood and then overlaid with gold.  Today we’re going to look specifically how they were fastened together, how they were joined to stand and become the very House of God on earth.

2 John (Program #2) – Not Participating in Heresy

The New Testament is very strong in the matter of not receiving one who denies the person of Christ.  Even the second epistle of John is an epistle about loving one another here the apostle John prohibits us from sharing in heresy.  2 John 7 says, “For many deceivers went out into the world, those who do not confess Jesus Christ coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist.”  We should not have any contact with heretics or false prophets.

Exodus (Program #97) – The Boards of the Tabernacle (1)

The cover or roof of the tabernacle is made of four distinct layers.  Each of which are definite type of the various aspects of Christ.  As God’s dwelling with man, surely the tabernacle typifies Christ.  But the sides of the tabernacle, point us not only to Christ but also to us, the believers.  We see that for God’s dwelling place, He needs us, the redeemed believers.

We spent the last couple of days considering the four layers of coverings that help to compose the tabernacle.  Each of these layers typifies a different aspect of Christ.
