Ruth (Program #1) – An Introductory Word

The book of Judges is one of the most difficult in the Bible, it’s difficult because it records the history of Israel during one of its’ most miserable periods. Israel has forsaken God as her king, as her husband and every man had gone away doing what was right in his own eyes. The account of the loses and their battles against their enemies and the deplorable degradation of the people of God is quite depressing.

But following Judges comes one of the most sweetest and most lovely book of the Bible, the short book of Ruth.  People had always love the story through the ages, but just as the deplorable account in Judges has an intrinsic message to us as God’s people today so does the book of Ruth. For in this book we see in type, the incarnation of the redeeming Christ and the sinners choosing to join herself to her redeemer and His people resulting in her receiving the full inheritance of God’s people and eventually becoming an important person in the accomplishment of God’s purpose.

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.

Exodus (Program #108) – The Altar of Burnt Offering (5)

The record of the Passover given in Exodus gives us a detail account of Christ’s redeeming death.  But another picture in Exodus also touches redemption and that picture is the altar of the burnt offering in the tabernacle.   These Old Testament pictures unveil redemption in its thorough and wonderful details.  To see redemption and to see the redeeming Christ in the picture of the altar will make a deep and lasting imprint upon any lover of Jesus.

We come today to our 5th program dealing with the altar of burnt offering that was in the Outer Court of the tabernacle.  It may seems to a lot of people, like this is too much time to spend on such an Old Testament item as the altar.  But what we’ve really been spending our time on is the redeeming Christ.  How is the altar a clear type of redemption and the redeemer?

Hebrews (Program #67) – The Completion of Sonship

Salvation is God’s promise to man by believing faith. But, is salvation God’s goal for man? Or, is rather a process for the accomplishment of God’s goal? God’s goal of sonship is our topic today on the life study of the Bible.

On one hand, at the moment we receive the redeeming Christ as our Savior, we become sons of God. But in another sense, the process of sonship has just begun. How do we know from the Scripture that sonship can properly be described as a process?
