Acts (Program #37) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (3)

The book of Acts has been described as the backbone of the Bible. Of course, it stands between the Gospels and the Epistles, and chronicles many fascinating and inspiring events. But fundamentally, this book portrays the great turn in God’s move or the transfer from one dispensation to another. Stay with us today as we explore the great transfer in the book of Acts in this life study of the Bible.

Acts (Program #35) – The Propagation in Asia Minor and Europe through the Ministry of Paul’s Company (1)

There are many stages throughout history in God’s move and work among mankind on the earth. Much of the Bible is occupied with these stages.  The great turn of the Lord’s spread during the book of Acts was to the Gentile world, opening a door to eternal life and the Kingdom of the Heavens to all who would take freely the eternal life of God in Christ Jesus. We’re still enjoying this turn today nearly 2000 years later. For this major step in God’s move, the Apostle Paul was raised up sovereignly by the Lord to be the Apostle to the uncircumcision. And, Peter’s ministry was brought to a wonderful and victorious conclusion. We examine both of these stories on today’s life study of the Bible.

Acts (Program #32) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (24)

As Christians today, we likely take it for granted that anyone, despite their background or race, can freely take the salvation afforded by the grace of God through Jesus Christ. But, it wasn’t always that way. The opening of the door of the gospel to the Gentiles or non-Jewish world was a significant and difficult transition in God’s move on the earth. We will consider this key turning point in God’s move on today’s life study of the Bible.

Isaiah (Program #7) – A Word Concerning the Signs of Christ’s Incarnation Given to Ahaz

From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible reveals God’s working to accomplish His eternal purpose and His enemy countering to frustrate and damage God’s move.  This is the struggle of the ages and the theme of the entire Bible.  As we see God’s plan unveil both prophetically and literally in Scripture, our heart cannot but be filled with appreciation and faith in the divine revelation.  You surely will not want to miss today life study of the Bible

Job (Program #12) – Man Moving in God’s Move and God Moving in Man’s Move

As the New Testament era opened, a dramatic change occurred in the way that God moves to accomplish His purpose on the earth. God’s move was then inextricably linked to man; that means that God ceased to move apart from and independent of man. Of course, the man that God used for His move was Jesus Christ, who we know was also God. That’s why the high priests, the elders and even the officials of the Roman government could not determine whether the activities of Jesus were the activities of a man or of God. Actually, His actions were the actions of the first God-man. Today God is still operating in this principle. The principle of His moving into man, in man and through man. This is the principle of incarnation. “In the beginning was the Word”, John says, “…and the Word was God and the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us”. (John 1:1, 14)

23 May 2020 1 & 2 Chronicles (Program #1)

1 & 2 Chronicles (Program #1) – An Introductory Word

The 12 books of history in the Old Testament occupy an unique portion in the Holy Scriptures.  They give us the story of God’s chosen race Israel in some of their glorious times as well as show us the degradation and fall of God’s people to their lowest condition overtaken by idolatry and the hardness of their hearts.  Ten of these books deal almost exclusively with Israel, God’s chosen people in the Old Testament.  But the two books of Chronicles show us not only God’s move within the history of Israel but also His move within the history of the entire human race.

To fully understand the burden and get into the heart of these books, we need what the Apostle Paul prayed for in Ephesians and that is a spirit of wisdom and revelation and that the eyes of our heart would be enlightened that we could see how these are not just books of history but how these books are books of types and pictures that can more clearly reveal to us the very center of God’s heart desire, His eternal economy which is fully centered and focused on the excellent Christ.

Joshua (Program #2) – God’s Commission

Whenever we look at history, we should be able to see the hidden history within history. Because the history of mankind is actually the history of God in His move to accomplish His eternal purpose. He created man for this purpose. And from that day unto the present day God has moved in, through and with man. First to redeem and then to from His redeemed into His corporate counterpart, the Church.

The Old Testament prophet, Ezekiel describes this move as the move of a great wheel turning upon the earth as God moves ever closer to His ultimate goal. Even as we read the history of His people, Israel we need to see this move. As we come again today not just to the book of Ezekiel but specifically to the book of Joshua where we see His move as we’re about ready to take a major advance. more…

Exodus (Program #173) – The Making of the Tabernacle – Offering of the Materials, Preparing of Workers

The Bible reveals that God needs man to assist Him in His move.   God needs man and for this God calls man.  The question is what is it that man can do to assist God in His move?  What is it that God is looking for for man to carry out His move?  Part of the answers can be seen by understanding the types and pictures in the Old Testament book of Exodus.  For the past several months we had that enjoyment, that privilege and that pleasure and today we come nearly to the conclusion of this life study of Exodus.

Exodus (Program #146) – The Propitiation Silver (2) Formation of An Army, Need of Maturity, Interceding at the Incense Altar

After God presented the plan for the building of His portal dwelling place, the tabernacle, He then set forth provisions for its care and maintenance.  First was the offering of a half shekel of silver, a kind of tax levy upon all the adult males.  Then the same ones were to be drafted to form an army to fight for God’s move.  These same provisions are necessary today for God’s move to be carried out on earth and we will look at both on this life study of the Bible.

Exodus (Program #145) – The Propitiation Silver (1) Formation of an Army, Military Censors, God’s Move

Precious minerals and metals have deep meaning in Scripture.  Gold points us to the holy nature of God Himself and bronze or brass typifies His righteous judgment.  Silver is also a clear type of the redeeming Christ, our Savior.  But the silver is not only meaningful for our initial redemption, it also typifies the very Christ that we experienced and then can offer to God for His satisfaction.  We will see more on today’s life study of the Bible.
