PA237 Feasts of the LORD 1 – Passover mp3

Feasts of the LORD Series 1

In this message, we begin a study of the various feasts the LORD gave to Israel. To begin with, we consider the first and most important feast the LORD gave to Israel: the feast of the Passover. Considering the original feast, the laws regarding the feast, and the most important commemorative feasts that are recorded in the Old Testament.

PSA223 Obadiah – The Lord Repays Those Who Hate His People mp3

Obadiah Series 1

In this message, we study the book of Obadiah. In his book, Obadiah warns Edom, the nation descended from Esau, that they would be punished for their pride, and for siding against Judah while they were being destroyed by Babylon. They too would be destroyed, and experience what Judah had. Israel will control the land of Edom in the Kingdom of God. God will set right all wrongs when He controls the governments of this earth.

PA236 Things That Differ 4 – The Kingdom and Prophets mp3

Things That Differ Series 4

In this message, we conclude our study of things that differ between the Acts Period and God’s current work in the Dispensation of Grace. We consider the gift of prophecy, which was still active in the Acts Period, versus today when we are shut up to the Word. Then, meats were unclean to one who considers them unclean in the Acts Period, whereas today all foods are made clean by the word of God. Marriage was temporarily discouraged in the Acts period, whereas it is encouraged today. In the Acts Period, Paul taught nothing but what Moses and the prophets said would come, whereas in the Dispensation of Grace Paul taught a new period not made known in any past revelation of God. Finally, in the Acts period the full Kingdom of God was near, whereas today the Kingdom is suspended until a far future date. Let us learn these important differences, in order to understand God’s works and ways today.

PA235 Things That Differ 3 – Israel mp3

Things That Differ Series 3

In this message, we continue to consider differences between the Acts period up to Acts 28:28 and the dispensation of grace we live in today. First of all, Israel was the focus versus today all nations are now joint and equal before God. Then, the law and the temple were still relevant to believers, versus now both the law and the temple are now unimportant. Rituals were still active and performed during the Acts period, whereas now all these have been done away. When we see these true differences, we realize the important need to rightly divide.

 

PA234 Things That Differ 2 – Miracles mp3

Things That Differ Series 2

In this message, we consider more differences between the way things were in the Acts period and the way things are today post Acts 28:28. First, we consider the working of miracles in Acts as evidential works through a mediator, versus today when miracles are done directly by God and are untraceable. We consider the Divine leading and direction that existed at that time directly from God, versus today when this is all through the written Word of God. Finally, we consider the proclaiming of the Word, which in Acts was done through apostled men, whereas today the gospel itself is apostled.

PA233 Things That Differ 1 – Leadership mp3

Things That Differ Series 1

In this message, we begin a study considering the things that differed (Philippians 1:10) in the Acts period from the way God is working today. First of all, there were then sights and sounds from heaven, whereas now there is silence. Then, there were leaders chosen and marked out by God, whereas now our leaders are chosen by men. Then, Divine punishment was active for inexcusable acts, but today God deals graciously with us. Then, they received whatever they asked, but now we are only promised the peace of God when we make our requests to Him.

PSA222 Amos 4 – The Terrible Calamity, The Glorious Kingdom mp3

Amos Series 4

In this message, we conclude our series on Amos. Amos sees a basket of ripe fruit, symbolizing the fact that Israel was ripe for punishment. Their feasts will become mourning, and their music will be replaced by howling. At that time, there would be a famine, not of food, but of hearing the words of the LORD. There will be no escape from the coming calamity: not in Sheol, nor in heaven, nor on top of Mount Carmel, nor at the bottom of the sea. Yet there is an ultimate solution: The Kingdom of God, when they will all be planted in the land.

PSA221 Amos 3 – Nobles, Priests, and Punishments mp3

Amos Series 3

In this message, we consider the messenger who prepares the way before the LORD. He urges Israel to return to Him. They have robbed Him in tithes and offerings. Does this mean we should give 10% of our income to a church? They have spoken harshly against God, claiming it is useless to serve Him. Those who feared the LORD discussed what He had said among themselves, and the LORD promised that someday He would make them His jewels.

PA232 Malachi 4:1-6 mp3

Malachi Series 4

In this message, Malachi discusses the day when the proud and the wicked will be burned up like stubble. Yet the Sun of righteousness will arise on those who fear His name. He will send Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. What does this mean? When will this take place? Could this possibly be referring to John the Baptist, or not?

PA231 Malachi 3:1-18 mp3

Malachi Series 3

In this message, we consider the messenger who prepares the way before the LORD. He urges Israel to return to Him. They have robbed Him in tithes and offerings. Does this mean we should give 10% of our income to a church? They have spoken harshly against God, claiming it is useless to serve Him. Those who feared the LORD discussed what He had said among themselves, and the LORD promised that someday He would make them His jewels.
