  It is common to find the “put family first agenda” even among Christians. This comes close to a narcissistic form of idolatry and self-worship.

First, Adam needed a companion (Ge.2:18). God's solution for Adam's loneliness was Eve. In Heaven we will no longer be lonely (Rv.7:9). Second for procreation (Ge.1:28). In Heaven we will not need procreation. Any human in Heaven will be there because of faith in Christ. — [PHYSICAL SPIRITUAL FAMILY PRIORITY] twe

  There are some who distinguish sharply between the Church and the Body of Christ. They teach that the Church began in Acts 2 on the Day of Pentecost. And that the Body of Christ began after Paul became a believer. However, the Word of God clearly teaches that the Church and the Body of Christ are seen as one and the same group. In fact, in Ephesians chapter and verses 22 and 23 refer to “the church, which is his body.” — [CHURCH WHICH IS HIS BODY] twe

  The phrase, 'bride of Christ' does not occur in the Bible, and nowhere in the Bible is the church called the 'Bride. The church is called His 'Body' (Ep.1:22-23). The terms 'wife' and 'bride' are titles that belong to Israel. The image of marriage is applied to God and Israel in several Old Testament passages (Is.54:5-6; 62:4-5; Je.2:2; Ho.2:7,16-20). Only believing Israel will participate in the actual marriage of the Lamb. In Matthew 25:1-13 the 5 foolish virgins represent unbelieving Israel. The 5 wise virgins went with Him to the marriage (v.10), which will take place when our Lord returns in glory at the end of the Great Tribulation. God's promises to the church are heavenly, not earthly (Ep.1:3; 2:6; Ph.3:20). The marriage of the Lamb will occur on the earth when Christ returns to set up His kingdom. Following the marriage (Rv.19:9) the guests are the kingdom Gentiles who will be invited to enjoy the blessings of the coming Millennial Kingdom (Mt.25:31-46; Lk.14:15-24). The bride is Israel, and the 'marriage of the Lamb' is Israel reconciled with God which the prophets foretold (Is.59:20; Je.31:31-34; Ek.20:34-38; 34:13-18; 36:22). Israel, as the wife of Jehovah, will have a renewed relationship with the Lord. — [WHO IS THE BRIDE] twe

  The names of the days of the seven-day week in many languages are derived from the names of the classical planets in Hellenistic astrology (2nd or early 1st century (BC), which were in turn named after contemporary deities. The practice of naming the days of the week after the planetary bodies was already in use before Christ came as a man. There are two main points from this chart. The first is that the names of days after planets, the Sun, and the moon has been around before Christ. The second point is that there is very strong evidence that the Church assembled as believers on the first day of the week (Sunday) in celebration of our Lord's resurrection. — [PLANETARY ASSOCIATION WITH DAYS OF THE WEEK] twe

  The clear teaching of Scripture concerning faith must be understood lest we seek a man-centered view. Scripture shows faith to be our trust in a holy God despite our circumstances. The so-called name-it-and-claim-it view sees faith as a way of controlling God to give us what we want. From this view faith is a force where we can get what we want by claiming it. God becomes obligated to accommodate your desire. The notion that our thoughts control reality or the outcome, is not taught in Scripture. This exalts man and his “faith” above God. The idea of controlling one's future with his thoughts or faith is very appealing to sinful man. And it is no surprise many follow this direction. This teaching insults the God of Scripture Who is sovereign. This is a Christianized quest for power based on the flesh. The name-it-and-claim it view is focused on us getting the things the world has to offer in this life. — [FAITH NAME IT AND CLAIM IT] twe

  During Paul’s earthly ministry he was forced to deal with false teachers. This was important because these teachers were damaging the faith of some. Hymenaeus was a prominent man in the church at Ephesus. He had become seriously sidetracked by the enemy. This allowed Satan to use him to hurt the faith of some. Paul used the word, “blaspheme” to describe Hymenaeus’ error. Blaspheme is a false teaching that reproaches God’s character or His revealed truth (see Nu.15:30-31). Paul's prayer is that this severe discipline would bring both Hymenaeus and Alexander back into full fellowship with the Lord and with His people (1Tm.1:20, “learn”). — [HYMENAEUS ALEXANDER] twe

However, two feasts, namely, Firstfruits and Pentecost, are always on Sunday, and not on a specific calendar date. These two feasts are types of the New Testament Church. They picture the resurrection (Firstfruits) and birth (Pentecost) of the Church. Pentecost is the only feast that included leaven where they baked two loaves of bread.

  The phrase “most high God” is a way to address God Himself. This is a more generic term used mostly by Gentiles. The covenant people of Israel used the name YHWH or Yahweh. The covenant name YHWH is associated with the nation of Israel and so is known as the national name of God. This is the name God used to reveal himself to Moses (Ex.3:14; 6:2-3). YHWH occurs frequently in relationship to God's redemptive work (Lv.26:45; Ps.19:14). So when the phrase “most high God” is used it is not referring to God as a covenant keeping God in relation to Israel. Rather, it is a term referring to God in a universal sense.  — [MOST HIGH GOD] twe

  The word “temple” signifies a dwelling place. Believers in the church today are the temple of God. That is, God the Holy Spirit dwells within us (1Co.3:16; 2Co.6:16; Ep.2:21). Of the 13 times the word “temple” occurs (3 times for “tabernacle) in the book of Revelation they always refer to the heavenly dwelling place of God in Heaven (Rv.21:22). If the temple is heaven itself then what does being a pillar (Rv.3:12) mean? In 1 kings 7 the temple had two pillars that did not support anything. They both were named (Jachin, meaning 'He shall establish') and Boaz, meaning 'In Him is strength'). It likely signifies permanence. So when one overcomes he gains a permanent place in heaven (like a physical pillar in a physical temple). — [HEAVENLY TEMPLE OVERVIEW] twe

  Upon the death of Solomon in 931BC the kingdom of Israel split into two nations. Ten tribes formed in the north, and the two remaining tribes of Judah and half of Benjamin formed in the south. The northern tribes used the name “Israel” and the southern tribes used the name “Judah”. Jeremiah understood that Nebuchadnezzar was the Lord's instrument of punishment (Je.27:8; 38:17-19; 40:9). Thus, he urged them to quietly submit to Babylon's rule. The reason for the exile was because they mocked God's messengers, and despised His words (2Ch.36:14-16). God's sovereign control over His people are seen in the books of Daniel, Ezekiel, Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther. Though it appeared God abandoned them, He was there all along, watching over them until the coming of the “Anointed One”. God lead the first group of people to return to Jerusalem in 539-538BC under the leadership of Zerubbabel. The second group was lead by Ezra in 458BC. Then the third group returned under Nehemiah in 444BC. The rebuilt Jerusalem was much smaller than before the exile. — [BABYLONIAN CAPTIVITY OF JUDAH] twe

   God created us in such a way that we would be energized through incentives. That is, God uses incentives to help motive us. As believers our real motivation is based on the realization that Christ first loved us. “We love him, because he first loved us” (1Jn.4:19). See also 1Jn.4:10; Jn.3:16; 2Co.5:14-15, “the love of Christ constraineth us”; Ep.2:3-5). God uses rewards as incentives including giving generously (Lk.6:38), enduring pressures in ministry (2Co.4:17-18); and performing quality work for our employer (Cl.3:23-24). However, we can seek eternal rewards with a corrupt heart, seeking to be known as a spiritual person. But before Christ our motives will be revealed. There is nothing wrong with seeking rewards, but these rewards must be sought God's prescribed way. — [PROMISE OF REWARDS] twe

  In this life all believers have areas where they were overtaken by the world, the flesh, and the Devil himself (or at least his followers). The Christian life is a matter of learning to grow “in the Lord.” This means we learn to trust Him more and more over time. As we trust Him more these influences have less sway over our lives. Having the Holy Spirit indwelling us, and the Word of God in our hearts, we will be motivated by God’s love to live for Him and not for self. In Christ, we are more than conquerors (Rm.8:37). A conqueror puts the emphasis on self-effort. Whereas an overcomer focuses on Christ’s strength in our lives. An overcomer does not live this life alone. Thus, we can become overwhelmingly victorious. — [JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST OVERCOMES OVERTAKEN] twe

  Stoning is a form of capital punishment. The procedure used in the Bible for atoning was accomplished in one instantaneous stroke. It was done in a way to not prolong agony or suffering. Nor was it done in a way to public humiliated the person since they were created in the image of God. The concept of “an eye for an eye” was designed to limit the punishment to be proportional (no worse than the offense). This form of ‘capital punishment’ is not so much punishment as it is designed to purify the nation and provide a deterrent from sin. — [OLD TESTAMENT CAPITAL PUNISHMENT] twe

  Of the ten commandments listed in Exodus 20:1-17, only 9 of them were re-instituted in the New Testament. The fourth command concerning the Sabbath is referred to in several passages, but never with the idea of needing to be followed. In fact, Jesus and Paul had much to say about the Sabbath. Jesus said He is the Lord of the Sabbath (Mt.12:8), and Paul said the Sabbath was merely a shadow of things to come (Cl.2:16-17). As believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, we are not under the Law but under grace (Rm.6:14). The purpose of the Law is to lead us to Christ (Ga.3:24). Once we become a believer, we have no further need for the Law. In fact, we have been delivered from the Law (Rm.7:1-6). The Law brings wrath upon those who follow it (Rm.4:15). The purpose of the Law is to increase sin (Rm.5:20) — [TEN COMMANDMENTS AND NEW TESTAMENT] twe

Then we continue with the objective teaching from the epistles. Specifically, Paul makes it clear that the “sabbaths” are 'shadows' pointing to Christ. Christ is the reality. Christ is our sabbath as we rest in Him. Then finally, the New Testament pattern is observed how that believers always assembled on Sundays, and never Saturday. — [CREATION'S SABBATH VERSUS JESUS OUR SABBATH] twe

  The question regarding the Levitical Laws was debated in the first century. The issue was settled at that time. The New Testament does express the Law's function and relationship to the Christian. The first believers were mostly Jews who continued to observe God's Law as they were accustomed from their youth. The question arose when God added Gentile Believers to the Body of Christ. Some came from Judea saying, you must be circumcised and keep the Law to be saved (Ac.10:24). Paul addressed the issue head on. He gave the purpose for the Law (Ga.3:19). The Law was added because of transgressions. So it was intended to reveal to us our moral problem so we will discover how sinful we really are. After a person comes to faith in Jesus Christ the “tutor's” job in showing our sinfulness has been accomplished. — [LAW OF MOSES CHRIST] twe

  The term “conscience” is not found in the Old Testament. The closest OT term appears to be the “heart” (1Sa.24:5). This does not mean OT saints did not have a clear conscience. They did! They just did not obtain it by the sacrifices. The NT uses the word conscience (συνείδησις, Vines G4893, meaning moral awareness) is used mostly by Paul 31 times. The key passage is, “14For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves: 15Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another” (Rm.2:14-15). In brief, the conscience is (1) the God-given capacity of mankind to exercise self-evaluation (Ac.23:1; 24:16; 1Co.4:4); (2) a witness to the law of God on man's heart (Rm.2:14-15; 9:1). (3) a servant of the individual’s value system. An immature value system produces a weak conscience. An informed value system produces a strong sense of right and wrong. — [CONSCIENCE OVERVIEW] twe

  Man's conscience is looked at from Paul's two uses of “conscience” in First Timothy chapter one. Paul first talks about the conscience in very positive terms (1Tm.1:5). Then he tells of the negative side of the conscience (1Tm.1:19-20; 4:2). The first use of conscience is of the clear and free of guilt conscience. The second use of conscience concerns the false teachers Hymenaeus and Alexander. — [CONSCIENCE CLEAR SEARED COMPARED] twe

  God not only has given to every man a conscience, but has provided the means to clear the conscience when defiled. The believer has three very powerful resources to clear the conscience when guilt sets in. We should remember that guilt is there for a reason. The first resource the Lord has provided is confession of sin to clear the conscience. The second resource is forgiveness. This goes in both directions such as forgiving others, and being reconciled to anyone you have wronged. The third resource for a healthy conscience is education. That is, learning and applying the Biblical principles. — [CONSCIENCE RESOURCES] twe

  It is important to understand the relationship between key Biblical concepts, and how it effects our spiritual lives. First, we will examine the relationship between the “Flesh” and the “Old Man”. Here we will see that the Flesh wants to revive the Old Man in believers. The Flesh has driven the Old Man all its life, and has no intention of stopping just because we are now believers. Second, the relationship between the “Flesh” and the Holy Spirit are considered. The “Flesh” and the Spirit are at war with each other. Third, the conscience of the believer is examined. — [CONSCIENCE HOLY SPIRIT VERSES THE FLESH] twe

  We need to understand that our flesh, which includes the conscience, wants to guide our way through life. It wants to lead. But as believers we also have the Holy Spirit indwelling us. The Spirit also wants to guide our lives. And the two are opposed to each other. So how do believers tell the difference between the guidance of our conscience or the guidance of the Holy Spirit? As believers it is critical to know the difference. When the Holy Spirit directs individuals or groups it is the will of God. When the conscience directs us, it is the flesh that is driving. This is the will of Self. — [CONSCIENCE HOLY SPIRIT GUIDANCE] twe

  The Gospel of John shows Jesus performing 7 significant miracles. These are “signs”. These signs form the backbone for the public ministry of Jesus. Each of the signs reveal something about the person of Jesus Christ. John uses much symbolism which makes the lesson most intriguing. Signs serve to authenticate God's appointed divine messengers so that people would believe the message they bring. These signs prove that Jesus is who He said He was, which helps people to believe on Him. John does not call them miracles (yet they are), but signs. Signs point to something, and in this case they point to the Person of Jesus Christ. — [JOHN 7 Signs] twe

There are other uses of the phrase, “I Am” employed in John's Gospel that are powerful statements concerning the Person of Christ's deity (Jn.8:58; 9:5; 10:36; 13:13, 9; 14:11, 20).

  The Bible’s account of creation is often ridiculed by atheists. It is patronized by liberals. And it is even allegorized by some so-called conservatives. Of course this is God’s own account of creation. And Jesus, who was the Creator (Jn.1:1-3), corroborated the creation account as well (Mk.10:6-8). God takes His account of creation seriously, and He will hold all accountable for what He says. Paul is explaining how the Gentiles got into the sinful darkness they are engulfed in. He shows a progressive downward trend. God is focusing on what is truth (v.18,25), and what is known about God (v.19,21,28,32). What is truth is that God is the Creator of all things. What is known about God is revealed through the conscience (“in them”) and creation (“unto them”) itself (v.19-20). — [ROMANS 1:18-32 GOD'S JUDGMENT] twe

   Three times the combination (ean + per) is used in the New Testament (Hebrews 3:6,14; 6:3). And all three times it is used in the book of Hebrews, and is translated “if”. Assuming the word “if” is translated “since” in these passages there would be both a warning and an encouragement to hear God's Word. The warning in all three passages is to hear the Word of God making sure it is mixed with faith (Hb.4:2). Are these passages merely a warning (“if” as conditional) or an encouragement (“since” you have Christ)? The context of all three passages already has a warning to hear God’s Word. These passages translated “if” are more of an encouragement based on what they have in Christ. Thus, there is a warning and a positive encouragement in each passage. — [HEBREWS 'IF' MEANING] twe

  This series of parallel participles are joined by simple conjunctions and are preceded by a single article.

The verses before and after use the personal pronoun “we”. Verses 4-8 use such pronouns as, “those”, “they”, and “them.” This shift from using second person to third person, and then back to second person, at least marks this section (verses 4-8) as different in its language.

  Hebrews chapter six closes with a powerful message on eternal security and assurance of salvation. First he reminds them of their own lives in that they ministered to the saints. They did this with love (v.10), hope (v.11), and faith (v.12) which are characteristics of true believers (1Th.1:3; Rm.5:1-5). Yet he cautions them not to be “slothful” (same word as “dull” in 5:11). God has given His promises, and they need to exercise faith and patience to receive the blessings God has for them. They should diligently apply themselves to their spiritual life. Hebrews 6 is not a chapter to scare saints into thinking they are lost, but it gives assurance to strengthen their faith. Though many see Hebrews chapter 6, especially verses 4-8,  as teaching a loss of salvation, it is actually a strong message on asurance of the salvation. The basis for assurance is God's promises, God's oath, and God's Son. — [HEBREWS 6:13-20 PROMISES OATH SON] twe

  The Day of Atonement is known as Yom Kippur. The word kippur means “to cover”. Scripture teaches that the sins of the OT saints were 'covered' over until the coming of Christ who completely removed them (Rm.3:24-25). Hebrews 9 focuses on the rituals of the Day of Atonement more than any other NT book. The Day of Atonement primarily dealt with ceremonial impurity of the nation. The ceremonies were external and could not deal with the inner person. This helped the NATION to have a good standing before God. Obedience provided blessings and protection. INDIVIDUALS had to deal with sin personally. One could say that sins during the OT were forgiven on credit. Christ's death did not merely cover sins, He redeemed us. That is, He purchased us to Himself. He paid the price for our sin, and actually removed them from our account before God.

However, these did not receive the promise (Hb.11:13,39). Believers in the New Covenant are heirs of the promise (Hb.6:17-18) through faith in Christ. All our spiritual blessings are the result of the promises God made with Abraham and David (Rm.11:13-29).

  What is the author of Hebrews specifically writing about in the epistle? The recipients were under threat of persecution, and so were tempted to abandon their Christian faith to return to their Jewish faith. So the author contrasts the terrors of Mount Sinai, which represents Jewish life under the Law, with the glorious Mount Zion which represents joy under the New Covenant. The author does not want them to make the same mistake Esau made (Hb.12:16-17). The contrast is that the Old Covenant (Mt Sinai) brought terror and judgment. The New Covenant (Mt. Zion) brings joyous celebration with the saints and angels in the presence of God.

  Christians have an altar of which Jews have “no right” to eat. We have exclusive right to eat of the altar of Christ. Christ is our altar! It includes all the blessings that are found in Him. When we feed on the Word of God, we are feeding in Him. Thus, we eat His flesh figuratively (Jn.6:54-56). This is NOT typical food. The altar for believers today is equivalent to Christ's sacrifice and compares to the Day of Atonement. This is a metaphor of our access to God through Christ. “We have an altar” is the book of Hebrews recipient's confident answer to repeated taunts of the Judaizers.
Believers are not to remain in the camp [of self-righteousness] to reform it (2Co.5:17; 6:17; Rv.18:4). Instead we are to be separated from it (Ep.5:11). — [HEBREWS 13:10-13, ALTAR OUTSIDE THE CAMP] twe

PDF

PNG
  What makes Hosea so powerful is the fact that he ministered out of his deep personal and painful emotions. Hosea appreciated God's 'pain' from his unfaithful wife (Israel). He had to live it himself before he could preach it to the people. God told Hosea to marry a woman (Gomer) who would prove to be unfaithful to him. He did this so Hosea could appreciate how the Lord saw his wife's (Israel) unfaithfulness to Him. Hosea experienced real heartbreak from his unfaithful wife, not only as an adulteress, but also as an adulteress turned prostitute. Hosea learned the awfulness of sin from his wife's unfaithfulness. And he learned, in his obedience to God's command to seek out and accept his traitorous wife, God's love in spite of sin. — [HOSEA OVERVIEW] twe

  Hosea uses the symbolic presentation of marriage of Hosea and Gomer to God's love for the idolatrous nation of Israel. This is a rich metaphor of sin, judgment, and forgiveness. Hosea reminds Israel that God is loyal to His covenant people even though they have been unfaithful. Though Israel continued to turn to false gods, God's love is portrayed as the long suffering husband (Hosea, God) to his unfaithful wife (Gomer, Israel). The following are the thematic concepts Hosea uses to teach the nation. Hosea stresses the Biblical doctrines of sin, judgment, God's loyal love, and salvation. Hosea assures us of God's unconditional love for His people. [HOSEA THEMES] twe

  Joel uses the occasion of a recent and devastating locust plague and drought as a picture of the coming Babylonian attack and the Tribulational attack by the king of the North. The Biblical principle is that God will use national disasters to warn His people (Lv.26:14ff). Joel understands that this is evidence that the Lord is judging His people because of their sin. This is in keeping with the covenant from Moses in Deuteronomy 28. And in keeping with this covenant Joel urges the people to repent and turn back to the Lord. As severe as the locusts were. And as bad as the Babylonian invasion will be, the coming battle of Armageddon will be more dreadful than all. — [JOEL VIEW OF PROPHECY] twe

  When Joel says God will pour out His Spirit on all flesh, he is saying that God will draw near to men to make Himself known in a powerful way. When God makes Himself known in people's lives it will be manifest in at least three ways. They may dream dreams, see visions, and prophesy (Jl.2:28). When God pours Himself into individuals their inner life is changed, and that full inner life speaks of God. Joel is predicting the day when all of God's people (in context, Israel) will receive God's Holy Spirit. So the question needs to be asked, Was Peter claiming that the pouring out of God's Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost fulfilled Joel's prophecy? — [JOEL ACTS COMPARED] twe

  That 7 sins are mentioned certainly does not mean these are the only sins Israel is guilty of. The number 7 is used in Scripture to represent fullness or completeness. For the nation Israel, Amos named 7 sins, but for the other nations he basically mentioned one. Amos used the formula, “for three transgressions and for four” for all the nations including Israel. Why does God name more sins for Israel than He does of the other nations? It is because God requires more from those whom He has given more (Am.2:9-11; Lk.12:48). That certainly is true for Judah as well, but the focus of Amos is on Israel. — [AMOS 7 SINS OF ISRAEL] twe

  Notice the similarities between Obadiah and Jeremiah chapter 49. Some have supposed that Obadiah 'borrowed' from Jeremiah, or perhaps Jeremiah 'borrowed' from Obadiah. All Scripture is God-breathed (2Tm.3:16). God inspired every word! None of Scripture is of any private interpretation (2Pe.1:20). The same Holy Spirit that gave Jeremiah the words to write, gave Obadiah the words to write as well. This comparison may be helpful in dating the book of Obadiah. If these two books are referring to the same time period, then Obadiah would be a contemporary of Jeremiah, and so is writing concerning the Babylonian conquest of Judah in 586 BC. Obadiah writes as if the event has already taken place. Jeremiah writes prophesying what will happen in the near future. This is why an early date for Obadiah (848-841BC) is preferred. — [OBADIAH, JEREMIAH 49 COMPARED] twe
