Jeremiah (Program #20) – Jehovah’s Promise concerning the Restoration of Israel

The history revealed in the Bible is a history of the covenants that God made with man.  In reality, only two of these covenants have great significance.  The first of which from Exodus 25 was the covenant of law that God made through Moses when He gave Israel the ten commandments.  The second covenant called the new covenant was also the last covenant.  And though it was not enacted until the Lord Jesus sacrificed Himself on the cross for our redemption.  It was clearly foretold by the prophet Jeremiah in Jeremiah chapter 31, listen to the word of this marvelous new covenant as spoken by the Old Testament prophet.

Indeed, days are coming, declares Jehovah, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, Not like the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day I took them by their hand to bring them out from the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, although I was their Husband, declares Jehovah. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares Jehovah: I will put My law within them and write it upon their hearts; and I will be their God, and they will be My people. And they will no longer teach, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, Know Jehovah; for all of them will know Me, from the little one among them even to the great one among them, declares Jehovah, for I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.

Jeremiah (Program #10) – A Word concerning Israel’s History

Many people think the book of Jeremiah is not easy to read nor to understand. Well, it maybe hard to ready because it seems to be full of the failures and degradation of God’s people, Israel. Yet despite page after page of such failures, there are wonderful crystals of God’s economy and of the new covenant and of Christ Himself. It’s hard to understand because much of it is based on the history of God’s people and what has led up to the time when God called a young man, even still in his mother’s womb to be a prophet for Him and speak on His behalf to the rebellious and unfaithful people of Israel. This was the prophet Jeremiah.

Proverbs (Program #3) – The Detailed Precepts for Man To Live a Proper Human Life (1)

Whenever we come to God’s word, whether to a deeply spiritual book such as Ephesians or to a book with easy to understand, ethical and moral precepts such as Proverbs, the kind of person that we are will have much to do with what we take away from our reading of the Bible. In fact, the Bible itself tells us that the words of Scripture can be spirit and life to us as we see in John 6, “The words which I have spoken to you are spirit and are life”. But the same New Testament also provides a strong word of caution in 2 Corinthians 3, “Who has made us sufficient as ministers of a new covenant, ministers not of the letter but of the Spirit, for the letter kills but the Spirit gives life”. Spirit and life or dead letter, the Bible can be either. And the determining factor as to which we will experience has everything to do with us and how we approach this word of God.

Exodus (Program #79) – The Blood of the Covenant (2).

The Old Testament book of Exodus speaks of a covenant between God and man and this covenant was ratified by blood. In the New Testament the Lord Jesus speaks of a New covenant in Luke 22 and once again the covenant is connected to the shedding of blood. And finally in Hebrews the writer speaks of an eternal covenant enacted and ratified by the offering of eternal blood. What is the relationship between these covenants and the blood that enacts and ratifies us?

It has been an amazing journey to see so many places and to consider them and respond to them in light of the very things we’ve been ministering in this life study of the scripture. This present message on the blood of the covenant I find particularly apt in recent days a number of us have been fellowshipping again and again about what we may call a dispensational change brought about by the ministry of the Lord Jesus. And by dispensational change we mean the ending, the terminating of the old covenant and the introducing of the new covenant through the redeeming death of Christ.  more…

1 Peter (Program #3) – The Full Salvation of the Triune God and Its Issues (1)

In the books of 1 & 2 Peter often a single word can add much richness and meaning to what is being said.  For example, Peter begins his first epistle by pointing  us to the sprinkling of the blood of Jesus.  This word sprinkling was surely used to remind the Hebrew believers that he was writing to of how the sprinkling of the blood of goats and sheep that they were familiar with in the Old Testament Jewish religion was simply or merely a type, a foreshadowing of the real eternal offering of the blood of Christ.  His was the sprinkling that accomplished far more than the temporary atonement of the sacrifices in the Old Testament.  For this sprinkling guarantees our full possession of all the benefits and blessings of the entire new covenant from now and for eternity.

Hebrews (Program #66) – Living According to the Law of Life and Moving According to the Anointing

Today, we will see in the book of Hebrews the crucial need of Christians today is not more teaching from the Bible, neither is it more power in the miraculous realm. The crucial need of Christians today is to know Christ in an inward way, to live Him, and to become the sons of God.

Hebrews and Romans make clear that God’s intention is to have genuine sons from among men. But, God is a divine being while we are merely human beings. This presents a major obstacle to the accomplishment of God’s purpose. The inner working of the divine life within us is our focus of today’s life study of the Bible.

Hebrews (Program #53) – A Contrast Between the Sight of the Old Covenant and the Scene of the New Covenant

The most exciting game of the universe is God’s great salvation.  Portrait here in this contrast made in Hebrews 12.  It begins with Mount Zion and the city of the Living God in the heavenly Jerusalem.

A classic and universal Olympic-style race is the metaphor used by the apostle in several portions of the New Testament.  But no references are as graphic and as poignant as those in Hebrews chapter 12.  With a company of angelic beings looking on, we the believers become the participants in this great race.  We will join the scene on today’s life study of the Bible.

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.

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.

Hebrews (Program #39) – The Type of the Old Covenant and the Reality of the New Covenant

Today we will see that the Holy of Holies has been made open for every Christian to enter in, to know God’s presence and to hear His speaking.

Hebrews is a book of comparisons between the Old Testament and the New. The comparison of the Old Testament tabernacle with the real tabernacle today, the place of God’s presence and glory is our focus. Throughout Hebrews we are continually presented with items/features from the Old Testament and then shown them in their New Testament reality. Today, we’re going to see the tabernacle in such a light.
