Cosmic geography and chariots of fire

February 26, 2017

THE CONCEPTS of holy ground and cosmic geography are behind most of the stories in today’s Old Testament study. As we saw in the life of Elijah, God often did things to teach a lesson and/or send a message. In this case, it was the clear message that Israel belongs to Him.

Enoch, the apostles, and the sin of the Watchers

February 26, 2017

SPIRITUAL WARFARE and the sin of the Watchers are the focus of this week’s New Testament study. Peter and Jude were in accord with the letters we read this week, and there is a lot of meat in these four short chapters.

Death of the gods

February 19, 2017

THE DIVINE COUNCIL in action and prophecy is the focus of this week’s Old Testament study.

Faith and perseverance

February 19, 2017

FAITH AND perseverance are at the heart of today’s New Testament study. We conclude the remarkable Book of Hebrews with a discussion of the Old Testament patriarchs who were accounted righteous because of their faith. Then we move to Paul’s second letter to Timothy, in which he exhorts the young man to keep fighting the good fight.

The divine council in action

February 12, 2017

GOD HAS a council that carries out His commands, and this week we get one of the few glimpses into its workings recorded in the Bible. It’s the story of Ahab’s demise in battle against the Syrians at Ramoth-Gilead, where the king of Israel is enticed by lying spirits to go to his doom.

A change in the priesthood

February 12, 2017

AGAIN WE find it impossible to get through more than a few chapters of the incredible Book of Hebrews. These chapters systematically make the case for the superiority of Jesus and the new covenant in his blood to the old covenant under the Law given to Moses.

Smackdown on Mount Carmel!

February 5, 2017

THE MOST famous confrontation between a prophet of the Lord and prophets of a fallen lesser elohim is at the center of today’s study. Of course we’re referring to the showdown between Elijah and the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel.

“I will tell of your name to my brothers…”

February 5, 2017

THE SUPREMACY of Jesus is the theme of the Book of Hebrews. This week, we discuss his mission to restore humanity to the divine council, which will culminate in a wonderful scene on the mount of assembly.

War between them all their days

January 22, 2017

THE TALE of two kingdoms continues in our Old Testament study this week. We get the stories of the northern kings of Israel Nadab, Baasha, Elah, Zimri, and Omri, and the southern kings of Judah Abijah, Asa, and Jehoshaphat.

Gentleness and respect

January 22, 2017

ENDURANCE THROUGH suffering. That’s the overarching message of the epistle of 1 Peter. But there’s a lot more in there that we had forgotten.
