Luke (Program #9) – The Preparation of the Man-Savior with His Divinity (8)

Here is a story we all know quite well – the story of an angel paying a visit to a humble virgin in a lowly city in a despised region.  “In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth to a virgin engaged to a man named Joseph of the House of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.  And he came to her and said, Rejoice, you who have been graced!  The Lord be with you.” (Luke 1:26-28) “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call His name Jesus.  He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to Him the throne of David His father, and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end” (Luke 1:31-33)  This is the declaration of the arch angel Gabriel in the first chapter of the gospel of Luke.  But it is just one of many pronouncements concerning the preparation of the Man-Savior Jesus as recorded in Luke’s gospel.  We will look at several of these marvelous declarations today.

Luke (Program #6) – The Preparation of the Man-Savior with His Divinity (4)

Luke 2:1-4 says, “And in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus for a census to be taken of all the inhabited earth. This was the first census that took place when Quirinius governed Syria. And all went to be registered, each to his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee out of the city of Nazareth into Judea, to David’s city which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David.” These words introduce the most well-known story in Scripture, that of the birth of Jesus. But it is significant to know that they refer back to a prophecy from the Old Testament prophet, Micah. Listen to Micah’s words written hundred of years before, “But you, O Bethlehem, Ephrathah, So little to be among the thousands of Judah, From you there will come forth to Me He who is to be ruler in Israel; And His going forths are from ancient times; From the days of eternity”. (Micah 5:2) Marvelous prophetic words fulfilled in this most well-known story but we will look at some of the more hidden significances that are unveiled here from the gospel of Luke.

Genesis (Program #133) – The Reigning Aspect of the Matured Israel (7)

This is our next to the last program from Genesis and soon we will be going on to the book of Romans and we certainly look forward to that.

…this particular exposition of the book of Genesis is really a spiritual classic.  We called it a life study; it’s a study in a particular sense in that we want to see how God in Christ as the spirit wants to be our life and our everything.  Especially we just like to review for our listeners, we’ve see these 9 great men in the book of Genesis – we have seen a complete picture of the believers’ experience of Christ as life for God’s eternal purpose…

Genesis (Program #128) – The Secret of Joseph’s Release and Exaltation

We have today a marvelous and even special life study before us.  This is a wonderful story with a lot of spiritual significance for us.  For the benefit of those that are not that familiar with the story, a quick overview…

Concerning Joseph, we should realize that he is a full and complete type of Christ.  Joseph’s life is characterized by two matters; dreams and suffering.   He saw dreams and he spoke about them this led to suffering.  Eventually his suffering brought him to prison, where he remained for quite a period of time.  However, he remained faithful to his dreams.  He was used by God to interpret the dreams of others and eventually by speaking forth the interpretation of the dreams, he was released from the prison…
