Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 47

To live out our faith in everyday life is difficult. It is not only difficult, but is not necessarily rewarding. The world system is upside down and inside out. In general people may not only be impervious to honor and integrity, they can get annoyed by it. Godly character does not fit in well with the way the world does business

God's Love

We will deal with three biblical areas of God’s love. 1. God’s Love Of Benevolence 2. God’s Love Of Beneficence 3. God’s Love Of Complacency The beauty of God’s beneficent love is that he does not prevent those who do not belong to him from experiencing blessings. And that is an example of his benevolence manifesting itself in his beneficence to us.

Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 46

Jesus makes three very bold declarations concerning his mission while on earth. He states the following: 1. I have come to judge. 2. I have come to suffer. 3. I Have come to divide For the most part, these things do not fit within the frame of the portrait that many people paint of Jesus. And yet, to paint a portrait of Christ without these three things paints an incomplete and even a heretical picture of God’s Son.

Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 44

There will be no time to prepare for the Lord’s coming except for today. No one knows the day or the hour of Christ’s return. Our command is to be always ready…always prepared…always on guard. As there are things we must do to be physically fit and growing in strength there are things we must be doing to grow intellectually and spiritually. The scriptures are very plain in their instruction that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Not only does faith come by hearing the word of God, but so does understanding Him come about by reading the word of God.

Preparing the Way for Jesus, Part 42

Originally there was the Torah. This was what God gave to Moses. According to Orthodox Jewish belief, the Written Law that Moses received from the Lord is only part of God’s revelation. Another Law was revealed as well, and handed down orally through generations. At some point a rabbi thought that it would be a good idea to write down the oral law so that it could be preserved for generations to come. This written version of the Oral Law is called the Mishnah. The Mishnah contains what Jesus calls the heavy or the hard burdens or opinions that the teachers added on to the Talmud. Over the years other teachers wrote commentaries on the Mishnah which as you now know was the written account of the Oral Law (The Talmud).The Torah was about 530 pages long, while the Mishnah is 36 VOLUMES in length. Many of the controversies between the Pharisees and Jesus that are recorded in the Scripture have to do with their differing interpretations of the place and purpose of the Oral Law.
