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…

Genesis (Program #124) – The Reigning Aspect of the Matured Israel (1)

Today we come back to Joseph again in the aspect of his maturity in Christ.  Joseph is a very special character in the Bible, a full type of Christ.  But one that must be seen together with his father Jacob to fully appreciate his significance.  What does this mean as we study these men of the Old Testament that we have seen so much of in this past month?

Ephesians (Program #48) – A Mysterious Type of Christ and the Church

It’s well known among Christians that Ephesians Chapter 5 offers many meaningful and helpful words for married couple embarking on life journey together.  It reads in verse 31 & 32, “For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh.”  But far beyond its’ value for our married life, it actually reveals the longing deep within the heart of God for a counter part for Christ.  “This mystery is great, (Paul continues) but I speak with regard to Christ and the church.

To understand this aspect more fully, we need to return to the very first pages of the Bible on Genesis Chapter 2,  “And Jehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh in its place. And Jehovah God built the rib, which He had taken from the man, into a woman and brought her to the man.”  What did Genesis 2 in Ephesians 5 reveal regarding God’s eternal desire?

Judges (Program #5) – The Miserable History of Israel’s Forsaking God (4)

The Bible begins with the story of Adam and how he gained a wife, Eve. In the New Testament of course we find out that Adam is a type of Christ, the very God and Eve, a type of God’s people, the Church.  So, from the beginning the Bible becomes a book of the marriage of God Himself with His people.  Yet by chapter 3 of Genesis, God’s enemy comes in to seduce man, to forsake God as their husband.  The result of this separation or divorce is the story of the chaotic history of mankind. Whatever nation, whatever group, whatever person forsakes God to become involves in something else ends up in a chaotic situation.  Israel’s history has seen this story repeated again and again in a cycle after cycle and soberly as we consider the situation even in the church, we’ see the same thing today.
