Hebrews (Program #44) – Come Forward to the Holy of Holies and Do Not Shrink Back to Judaism

The call to come forward is a striking element in the book of Hebrews. God’s desire for us is not just to come forward to receive Him for salvation, but we need to live a life of continually coming forward to God in Christ and through the spirit for our daily living. This is our focus today on the life study of the Bible.

The program today is going to begin with a brief review of some of the points that we’ve been covering in our recent broadcasts. Then we are going to launch into an examination of this marvelous phrase that appears at least four times in Hebrews. In the Recovery version, this phrase is translated as “come forward”. It’s really one Greek word but it takes the two words “come forward” to capture the essence of it – and it’s a call from God to His people.

Genesis (Program #114) – The Spiritual Significance of the Blessing Prophesied concerning Judah, Zebulun, and Issachar (1)

Our life study today brings us to chapter 49 of Genesis and the lion of the tribe of Judah.  We have spent quite some time on the matter of various blessings that Jacob has delivered to his 12 sons.   These blessings are in a beautiful, poetic form.  So we are taking the time to delve into the significance of all the pictures that are portrait here.  We are going to focus again today on a particular blessing given to Judah.

Hebrews (Program #43) – Christ’s Sacrifices Replacing and Terminating Those of the Old Covenant

Today in chapter 10 of Hebrews we will see the good news that our sins and iniquities are completely taken away. And, we will see the better news that we can join in with God for the fulfillment of His desire on earth today.

Twice in the book of Hebrews we have God’s new covenant presented. In this new covenant we have Christ to offer to God for our sins; but not only so, we also have the promise of the divine life being imparted into our being. Once again we will enjoy this new covenant on today’s life study of the Bible.

Genesis (Program #113) – The Manifestation of Maturity (4)

If we want to enter into God’s heart concerning the rich and complete experience of Christ for His Body, we need to open to see the significance of Jacob’s prophesying over his twelve sons.  These speakings are about us and Christ today.

Hebrews (Program #42) – The Two Manifestations of Christ

As Christians, of course we all believe that Christ came but we also believe that He is coming again. A major objective in His first coming is to put away sin. But what will be His objective in His second coming or manifestation? We will explore both of His manifestations on today’s life study of the Bible.

This message today is called the “The Two Manifestations of Christ”. This term “manifestations” may not be as familiar to some as the term or phrase the “second coming of Christ”. Do these mean the same thing and where do we find this in the book of Hebrews?

Genesis (Program #112) – The Manifestation of Maturity (3)

We want to look into the Jacob’s wonderful prophecy in Genesis chapter 49.  In our last broadcast concerns this matter of the maturity as seen in the latter part of Jacob’s life.  There was a marvelous point in that program that I think bears repeating…

Hebrews (Program #41) – The New Covenant and the New Testament

Today we focus on the new covenant and the New Testament. One of the most remarkable revelations in the book of Hebrews.

Anyone familiar with the Bible knows that it is comprised of an Old and New Testament. But have we ever considered just what is a “testament” and how does it pertain to us?

Our message today is titled “The New Covenant and the New Testament”. Are these two terms synonyms? Testament and covenant even as these words are used in our translation of Hebrews are the same word in Greek. So, why do we translate the word “covenant” here and “testament” there? It’s because “covenant” and “testament” are to a certain extent synonymous but in a very significant way different.

Genesis (Program #111) – The Manifestation of Maturity (2)

We have another message today giving us the manifestation of maturity in life as we see in Jacob.   Today, this maturity is going to be revealed in his prophesying with blessing.  This was his speakings to his sons at the end of his life.  What is prophesying?

Hebrews (Program #40) – The Experiences of Christ Portrayed by the Arrangement of the Furniture of the Tabernacle

Just like the law of life produces peaches, what does the law of the divine life produce? The law of the divine life produces the sons of God who by this law are made the same as God in life, nature, and expression but not in the Godhead.

Perhaps no richer picture of the reality of the Christian life is present in Scripture than the type of the tabernacle. This Old testament structure reveals untold insights of the reality of our experience of Christ. We will focus on it today on the life study of the Bible.

Genesis (Program #110) – The Shiftings of Birthright in Scripture

As we come to a portion of Genesis that has far reaching implications for God’s people.   We are going to focus today on a matter that appears Genesis, in which we will find out is very meaningful, very significant.  Yet like many other things like we’ve seen during our study of Genesis, this has been largely overlooked historically by God’s people.  We are going to look at the matter of birthright in the context of Jacob and Esau.
