Hebrews (Program #23) – The Remaining Sabbath Rest (6)

Today we look again at the Sabbath rest and how it is related to God’s dealing with His people and His judgment upon them that they could enter into that rest.  Hebrew is a book of warnings.  Warnings to believers.  We know that in our salvation we are spared God’s judgment on our sins.  But what does it mean that “judgment begins at the House of God?”  We will look at how God will judge His children in the coming age.

We are going to begin today’s life study of Hebrews by looking at a verse in 1 Peter 4:17 “judgment begins at the House of God”.  Surely this refers to us, the church.  Yet Christians don’t typically think of judgment having any implication for us once we are saved.  What is the context that God will judge His believers?

Hebrews (Program #12) – The Many Sons, the Many Brothers, the Church

Only one verse in the New Testament book of Hebrews mentions the church.  Hebrews 2:12 reveals the church in a marvelous way.  We will see the Son of God attending and even participating in this first gathering of the church in today’s life study of the Bible.

We are going to see three basic factors of God’s economy developed today.   The significance of these three items in the context of Hebrews; number one, the church, number two, the many sons and number three, the many brothers.

Philemon (Program # 2) – A Brother Recommended for the Acceptance of the New Man

A picture is worth a thousand words. Today we have a wonderful picture from the book of Philemon illustrating the believers equal status in the New Man.

The apostle Paul gave the teaching of this in Colossians 3:11 where he said, in the New Man “… cannot be Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free man, but Christ is all and in all.”  But in the real life story of Philemon with his slave Onesimus we see this illustrated in a beautiful way.

Titus (Program #7) – Dealing with a Factious One

The tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil are pictures in Genesis chapter two that portray two lines through out the entire Bible.

One line is the line of life and Paul told Titus that we should stress that.  The other is the line of death and Paul told Titus that we should avoid that terrible line.

Titus 3:4-5 says, “But when the kindness and the love to man of our Savior God appeared,  not out of works in righteousness which we did but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and the renewing of the Holy Spirit.”  A very pleasant life study program on God’s salvation.

Titus (Program #5) – Charging the Saints to Keep a Good Relationship with the Government

To have an orderly life, we need to take care of four units : the church, the family, the social system and the government. If we care for these units properly, we shall have an orderly life in every way.

When Paul was writing the book of Titus he had within him a concern for these four units.  Stay with us as we talk about these four basic units, especially keeping a good relationship with the government and God supply for us to do it.

Titus (Program #3) -Bring the Saints of Different Ages into an Orderly Life

Healthy teaching, healthy in faith and healthy speech are terms used by the apostle Paul in Titus chapter 2.  Why did he emphasize the matter of hygiene so much?
