How You Make It to Heaven

9/26/2022
Focusing on the last beatitude of the Bible, it is important to translate it correctly. A correction in the translation shows us that we do not make it to heaven by our works, efforts, or good deeds, but rather by washing our robes in the blood of the Lamb.

How the "Out-Called-Ones" Make It In

9/23/2022
In Matthew 22, God likens His kingdom to a wedding celebration in honor of His son. The call to "come in" is extended to all, but only the “out-called-ones,” the ones who come in clothed with the blood of the Lamb, will make it in.

Satan's Attack and the Remedy in Christ

9/22/2022
Many fail to recognize that satan and spiritual warfare are as much a reality in our lives as God is. The devil's enmity is not against us personally, but against Christ in us. We become targets because of our faith in Christ that takes us out of the enemy's grip and starts God's transformation process in us. The devil and his minions usually stick to a repeated pattern of what has worked before, attacking our weak points. He appears as an angel of light, a counterfeit bringing false...

Christ's Fulfillment of Scripture in Matthew

9/21/2022
Just as eyewitnesses may see any event from different perspectives and recall different details, each of the Gospel writers has a slightly different focus in the information he presents. Matthew's record focuses on the death of Christ and spilling of blood that would fulfill the shadows and types of the Old Testament sacrifices, presenting Christ as Deliverer and Reconciler for both Jews and Gentiles. Our only choice is to either wholly accept or wholly reject him. VF-2161 Watch, Listen and...

Atonement: Made Complete by the Blood of Christ

9/20/2022
In the Old Testament, in order to be made right with God, there was a temporary way into God's presence once a year on the day of atonement. This set time was reoccurring and something that God laid out as a shadow that pointed to the shed blood of Christ sufficient to cover us once and for all. His shed blood, unlike any other blood sacrifice, had and still has the power to wash and cleanse us, to forgive, to restore, to reconcile and to bring us back into communion and fellowship with God....

The Lord's Passover: God's Ultimate Revelation in Christ

9/19/2022
It is important to study the Old Testament to understand how God unfolds the revelation of Christ in the New Testament. The Lord's Passover and the exodus out of Egypt's bondage point to Christ's delivering sacrifice. Just as the children of Israel had to apply the blood of the lamb to the door to be spared from death, we must apply the shed blood of Christ to our hearts. The whole event is a template for us as we act in faith today and receive His deliverance from the bondage of sin and...

Jude's Doxology: To Him Who is Able to Keep You and Hold You Faultless

9/16/2022
Jude concludes his letter with a doxology that is essentially in the form of a prayer in the Greek. He emphasizes that when we are in peril of being shipwrecked in our faith by false teachers, Christ has the power to keep His focus on us as a shepherd watches over a flock, standing us up again firmly before Him when we stumble in our walk. Because Christ has washed us in His blood, He can present us blameless before the Lord, and we will have the privilege of being received with joy into the...

The God of Forgivnesses

9/15/2022
A close study of the Hebrew reveals God’s plural forgiveness’s, demonstrated by the fact that He never forsook the children of Israel despite their continuous rebellion. For us the promise is even greater with the covering of the blood of Christ. No matter how much or how often we fall short, we are forgiven.

You've Got Nothing to Boast About

9/14/2022
Using the current event where the Westboro Baptist Preacher (WBP) publicly called Taylor Swift a whore, the point is driven home: not one particle of boasting can enter in. This boasting is a substitution of the works of the law and/or emotions for the finished work of Jesus Christ. As illustrated on the board, the rope (Christ's shed blood) is what the most vile sinner and the most moral person MUST grab hold of to be saved.

Being Justified…

9/13/2022
A look at "justified" in three different texts and the grammar. In all three cases "justified" is passive. There are three concepts of how justification comes from each text: 1) by His grace, 2) by Faith and 3) by His blood.

God's Promise of Resurrected Life

In the Old Testament, God had set times for multiple harvests. At the end of time, there will be multiple resurrections in an order set by God. Christ fulfills the type of Firstfruits, being the Firstfruits of the resurrection, and multiple groups will follow after Him. Those who trust in Christ have been promised resurrection unto eternal life.

God Delivers You For Himself

Through a study of the Greek grammar, you demonstrate that God delivers us - past, present, and future all in the middle voice, for himself.

Christ: Offering, Offerer, and Priest

The Old and New Testaments have to be understood as one continuous narrative of God's unfolding plan of redemption for fallen humanity. There are many shadows and types that point to Christ and reveal the order in which things had to happen for us to be redeemed.

Why Does the Earth Need to Be Redeemed?

There are many questions we can ask about heaven, death, dying and eternity; including, "Why does the earth need to be redeemed?" The earth matters to God.
