Show Notes

The Fourth Commandment calls the people of God to remember the Sabbath. The Sabbath was set apart by God as a time of rest and spiritual rejuvenation. It is a special opportunity to draw closer to our Creator; time He designates for us to enhance our relationship with Him—to learn how to better love, worship and relate to Him. 

 

Why does this guideline call us to remember? First, when given in Exodus, it was not a new commandment. The Sabbath was established at the end of Creation Week in the Garden of Eden. But also we need to remember, because of all the guidelines for abundant living, this may be the one that we might be most tempted to forget. 

 

Did the apostles continue to remember to keep the Sabbath day holy after Jesus returned to heaven? In today’s top ten list, we note ten References to apostolic Sabbath-keeping in the Book of Acts.

 

Scriptures referenced include Acts 9:20; Acts 9:1-3; Acts 13:14-16, 26-27, 42-44; Acts 14:1; Acts 16:13-15; Acts 17:1-3; Acts 18:1-4, 8, 11, 19; Acts 19:8-9; Acts 24:14; and Acts 25:8.

Episode 165: The Gospel According to Isaiah

Some say that Isaiah is like a mini-Bible. The first 39 chapters, like the 39 books of the Old Testament, are filled with judgment upon immoral and idolatrous men. The final 27 chapters, like the 27 books of the New Testament, declare a message of hope. What does Isaiah have to say about salvation? And what picture does it offer us of Jesus? Besides answering these questions, we explore the song of God’s victory over evil captured in Isaiah 14, and briefly discuss what Isaiah says about heaven. We close with 10 prophecies of Isaiah, not related to the Messiah, that have come true.   Scriptures referenced include Isaiah 6:8; Hebrews 11:37; Isaiah 6:3; Isaiah 5:1-7; Isaiah 53; Isaiah 12:2; Isaiah 14:3, 12-13; Isaiah65:25; Isaiah 8:4; and Isaiah 37:33. ...

Episode 494: Denying Christ

According to verse 3, Jude was anxious to write about our salvation; however, he changed topics to address contending for the faith. This faith embodies the complete body of Christian doctrine taught by Christ, later passed on to the apostles. After Jude warns of false teachers (verses 4-16), he advises us on how we can succeed in spiritual warfare (verses 20-21). Here is wisdom we would do well to accept and adhere to as we go through these days of the end times.   Additional scriptures referenced include Matthew 13:55; Romans 5:18-21; Romans 6:1-15; Hebrews 3:7-11; and the rest of Jude. ...
