1 & 2 Samuel (Program #14) – The History Concerning David (2)

Throughout the ages, many have opposed God and oppressed His people. On one hand, it could be said that God has many enemies; but actually God has only one unique enemy – man. Man fights against God and this man is the flesh. The teaching regarding the flesh is found in many New Testament books and passages like Galatians 5 that tells us that, “For the flesh lusts against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh; for these oppose each other that you would not do the things that you desire.” But it takes the Old Testament pictures and types to illustrate how we all are subject to the evil of the flesh and how diligent we all must be to keep it where the Lord Jesus left crucified on the cross. If our eyes are open, we will see these Old Testament books such as 1 Samuel in a different, fresh and very new way that brings these things into a sharper focus.

John (Program #21) – The Need of the Hungry – Life’s Feeding (1)

When Christ came to this earth, he didn’t come to be a giant in religion. He was born in a small manger. He came from a lowly family. He was a small carpenter. This meant that he was approachable and available to every man to be man’s life supply.

We come to a new section in the gospel of John today.  Chapter 6 brings us to the well-known story of the Lord feeding of the thousands with the five loaves and two small fish.  There are so many pictures portrait in this chapter.

As genuine born-again Christians, we need to realize that it is possible to be saved and even forgiven of our sins yet fall short of God’s goal for our salvation.  What is this goal?  Revelation 1:5-6 tell us Jesus Christ has lose us from our sins by His blood and make us a kingdom, priests to His God and Father.  Yes we are saved, but can we boldly declare that also we are priests to God?   To see what it really means to be a priest, we have to look into the types and pictures in the Old Testament.  We will, on today’s life study of the Bible.

Exodus (Program #123) – The Priestly Garments (8) Lord’s Leading, the Church

The church of God was not manifested until the New Testament age.  It occupies many pages even chapters of New Testament scripture.  Though was never spoken of directly in the Old Testament, the pictures and types of the church embedded in the Old Testament are the richest and finest.

We have been looking at the details of the priestly garments from Exodus 28.  We come to an item today called the breastplate.  It is described in verses 15 and 16 of chapter 28 in Exodus.  Verse 15 “You shall make a breastplate of judgment, the work of a skillful workman like the work of the Ephod you shall make it, of gold, blue, and purple and scarlet and fine twined linen you shall make it.”

Exodus (Program #96) – The First Layer of the Covering (2)

All of God’s saved ones have surely seen the Christ of the Gospels, the Son of God who loved us and gave Himself up for us that we might be saved.   This in itself surely is marvelous, but have you seen the same Christ revealed in even greater details through the types and symbols of the Old Testament?  To do so is to have our faith in God’s word strengthened and our love and appreciation of Him, much much deepen.  Stay with us as we see the very Christ of our salvation in the details of the tabernacle, God’s dwelling place with man on today’s life study.

From Exodus 26, there were 4 layers of covering over the tabernacle.  We did look at the first layer; ten curtains, made of fine linen, colored blue, purple and scarlet and then with the cherubim embroidered on them.  Today we’re going to look at the other three layers.  But we really need to keep in mind all the significance of these details that we saw.
