Numbers (Program #30) – Fighting (9)

After 40 years of experiences in the wilderness, God is ready to fulfill His promise to His people Israel to give them the good land.  But there are some requirements that He places upon them because this land has been occupied even polluted by various people apart from Israel; people with other gods and idols.  So before Israel can inherit the land, they must first drive out all these inhabitants, destroy their idols and tear down the high places.  If they don’t, they will be troubled by these things throughout their days.  Once again, the Old Testament provides us with a rich profound illustration of how we must possess our good land, the all-inclusive Christ.

Luke (Program #56) – Jubilee (2 & 4)

There is a famous bell in Philadelphia of Pennsylvania with the inscription engraved on it from the Old Testament book of Leviticus, 25:10, which says “Proclaim liberty through out all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” In the United States this liberty bell is a traditional symbol of U.S. freedom. But the freedom refer to in the Bible is much bigger. It is referred to as Jubilee. The Lord Jesus proclaims this liberty for all mankind, when He announced in Luke 4:18-19, “the Spirit of the Lord is upon Me because He has anointed Me to announced the Gospel to the poor, He has sent Me to proclaim the release to the captives and the 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.”

Luke (Program #41) –  The Ministry of the Man-Savior in His Human Virtues with His Divine Attributes from Galilee to Jerusalem (21)

We’ve all heard of the city of Jericho.  Actually it was a city of curse in the time of Lord Jesus.  One of its inhabitants was a man of curse.  His was Zaccheus, a tax collector actually the chief tax collector and in reality, an extortioner who had gotten rich by taking advantage of the inhabitants of the area.  One day as Jesus was passing through, Zaccheus who climbed in a tree, hoping to get a look at the Savior.  As He came to the place, Jesus looking up, He said to him, “Zaccheus hurry and come down for today I must stay in your house.  And he hurried and came down, and received Him, rejoicing.”  It was a marvelous day as salvation came to the house of Zaccheus.  But the Pharisees, the religious ones who watched it and knew Zaccheus and his past did not share his rejoicing.  We will discover more about this marvelous story of salvation in the gospel of Luke in chapter 19.
