Acts (Program #47) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (13)

Ancient Athens was the cultural, scientific, and philosophical center of the earth and at its center was Areopagus, or Mars Hill, where all the great thinkers of the day wield away their time with new thoughts and enticing notions. They even had a statue erected to the unknown god. The Apostle Paul chose such a spot to declare to these learned, but spiritually blinded men that the God that was unknown to them was not only known to Paul and by Paul, but could also be known by them.  Stay tune for a remarkable and fascinating life study of the Bible.

Leviticus (Program #39) – The Word of Warning

All children of God should have the desire to obey Him, as our Father, we should obey Him in order to honour Him. Yet do we know who is this One that we want to please and obey?  Well, the Bible reveals that He is the very God of creation and of the Old Testament for there’s only one God and forever there will only be one God. But if we do not know Him according to the process that He has passed through in order to reach man, it will be impossible for us to live in the realm of real obedience.  The processed Triune God – that’s our focus on this message today from the life-study of Leviticus.

Acts (Program #46) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (12)

Once the Gospel of Christ emerged from Judea, it quickly spread into the continent of Europe. The great cities of the day became the stage from which the Lord Jesus, through primarily the apostle Paul and his co-workers, presented the all-inclusive Christ in resurrection. But, at each new place, fierce opposition soon appear, the opposer’s keen ability to twist and distort the message of life in Christ was a continual frustration to the brothers. The stories are immensely interesting but the lessons for us are the real value. Stay with us for another revealing life study of the Bible.

Leviticus (Program #38) – The Sabbath Year and the Jubilee (2) & (3)

A very special time in the lives of the Old Testament people of God was called the Jubilee. It only came every fifty years but it was a marvelous provision that freed the captives, returned lost properties and possessions to the original owners and full restored family and even relationships. No wonder the literal meaning of this word is to shout with great joy. The Israelites were not the only ones included in the jubilee because the Lord Jesus proclaimed that He Himself came to be the real jubilee for all those that receive Him, even today.

To suffer persecution on behalf of Jesus is not uncommon. Believers have experienced this glory from the first century. We may think that the Biblical pattern for such suffering is to bear it humbly, meekly, as a lamb led to the slaughter. The Bible does show us such examples, but there are other examples completely different attitude for the sake of the Gospel. We will see one such example on today’s life study of the Bible.

Leviticus (Program #37) – The Sabbath Year and the Jubilee (1)

The gospel of Luke chapter 4 has a wonderful and often quoted passage: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to announce the gospel of the poor; He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to send away in release those who are oppressed/ To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, the year of jubilee.” The Lord Jesus was actually quoting from Isaiah in this passage but the reference to the year of jubilee is found in Leviticus chapter 25. This is perhaps the best known chapter in this entire book and the spiritual significance of it will become, not just a good Bible teaching, but become the source of our shouting for joy, our jubilee!

It’s a surprising story that’s full of spiritual insight when we dig into it. Stay with us for a rich and enlightening life study of the Bible.

Leviticus (Program #36) – The Festivals (2)

The day of Pentecost is recorded in the book of Acts, is looked upon by many Christians as being a landmark event in the history of Christianity.  And rightly so, as it is associated with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  But Pentecost also coincide with the Jewish festival known as the Feast of Weeks as initiated in the book of Leviticus.  From the light of the Old Testament types and pictures we have been getting in the book of Leviticus, it bears even more significance for us today.  We want to look at Pentecost on today’s program from a very new and a very fresh perspective.

The Apostle Paul began the second of his great missionary journeys on a contentious note.  A serious dispute aroused between he and Barnabas, his close co-worker and the one who initiated him into the ministry.   The lessons that are seen in this account in Acts chapter 15 hold much help and insight even for us today, if our heart and spirit are open to see and hear God’s speaking from His faithful and holy Word.

Leviticus (Program #35) – The Festivals (1)

Festivals, feasts and holidays are special time for all humans.  They are always associated with rest and enjoyment and they are only satisfying when enjoyed with others.  In other words they are mean to be corporate events.  The Bibles records 7 annual festivals or feasts that were very much part of the Old Testament economy and these are found in the book of Leviticus chapter 23.  God’s people eagerly anticipated all of them.  Though we as God’s New Testament people are not bonded to celebrate or hold these festivals outwardly today, they each have tremendous insight and spiritual application to every child of God.  Stay with us today, as we look at the feasts in Leviticus 23 in our life study of the Bible program.
