Song of Songs (Program #7) – Called More Strongly to Live Within the Veil Through the Cross After Resurrection (1)

The fourth and final stage of the loving seeker’s experience as portrayed in the Song of Songs is to be called more strongly to live within the veil through the cross after resurrection.

This book Song of Songs is a marvelous book full of symbols or figures of spiritual things. All the physical things in this book symbolizes spiritual things. Solomon, as the great and wise king, is a picture of Christ. And this Shulamite country girl who, is attracted to him and pursues him and has a loving relationship with him, is a picture of individual believer in Christ who passes through a number of different stages in her experience of Christ.

1 & 2 Chronicles (Program #5) – Being Fundamental in the Full and Walking According to the All-Inclusive Spirit

The children of Israel were already in degradation when ten of the twelve tribes separated following the leadership of Jeroboam.  This act of division was further compounded when they established an alternate place of worship, far from Jerusalem in the northern region of Dan.  The result was two kingdoms under two kings, fully breaking the principle of oneness that the Lord has established for them in Deuteronomy 12 when He declared time after time that His choice was Jerusalem and all the children of Israel must come uniquely to Jerusalem to present their offerings and worship Jehovah.  But two of the tribes under the kingship of Rehoboam, Solomon’s son remained faithful to God’s command and kept Jerusalem and the temple as their center.  Thou this pleased Jehovah and preserved a measure of blessing upon them, still the Lord was strict and willing to discipline both the kings and the people whenever their hearts strayed from Him and the law of Moses that He had commanded them to keep.

1 & 2 Kings (Program #6) – The Reign of Solomon (5)

Solomon reigned during the height of the nation of Israel’s glory.  But he did not reign in life.  Romans 5:17 says “those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.” We are continuing in our life study of 1 Kings today, but if you stay with us, we believe that you will hear a unique word about King Solomon and how it applies to us, the believers in Christ today.

1 & 2 Kings (Program #4) – The Reign of Solomon (3)

More than a thousand years before the birth of Christ, in 1012 B.C. that was 480 years after God had brought the children of Israel out of Egypt, Solomon began to build the temple, the House of Jehovah.  Today on the life study of 1 Kings, we are going to talk some aspects of the temple that I am pretty sure that you have never heard before.

1 & 2 Kings (Program #3) – The Reign of Solomon (2)

We all remember the inspiring story of King Solomon in the Old Testament.  As the new king over Israel the Lord agrees to grant him one request.  Solomon touches the Lord’s heart by asking for wisdom in order that he could rule over Israel in a just manner.   For centuries, men have admired Solomon and long to be like him and have the wisdom that God blessed him with.  Surely his wisdom was great, but consider for a moment: how it compares to the wisdom that is our blessing as God’s New Testament called ones.  In 1 Corinthians 1:24, Paul writes “But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.” and in verse 30, “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom to us from God: both righteousness and sanctification and redemption.”

1 & 2 Kings (Program #2) – The Reign of Solomon (1)

After the death of the great king David in Israel, his son Solomon assumed the throne.  Solomon achieved much glory and splendor during his reign and there is no doubt this was a high peak in the history of Israel.  But Solomon’s ending, like that of his father was not so glorious.   To read the account of the events in the Old Testament book of Kings is interesting to be sure, but if God is merciful and grant us a spirit of wisdom and revelation, we can realize much more from these accounts than just the great stories and historical events.   We can perceive that behind all, is a God that is on one hand full of mercy and forgiveness in grace.  But on the other hand He is righteous and holy in all His dealings with His people.  There is an encouragement in these stories but there was also a warning that should sober us to take great care in all of our doings.
