The Church Bells All Were Broken

The Church Bells All Were Broken

Joseph Herrin (02-24-2011) I want to mention a singular phenomena that occurred when the earthquake struck Christchurch, New Zealand this week. In instance after instance, the  bell towers collapsed on prominent churches, some of which were historic landmarks. St. John’s Anglican Church Bell...

Shaking Christ’s Church

Shaking Christ’s Church

Joseph Herrin (02-23-2011) Hebrews 12:26-27 "Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven."  Now this, "Yet once more," indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. Yesterday, February...

Laying Down the Law – Understanding Difficult Scriptures

Laying Down the Law – Understanding Difficult Scriptures

Many saints who have adopted the view that the Law continues as the guardian and tutor to the saints today arrive at this view due to a misapprehension of various Scriptures. Although their conviction may be sincere, error will always result in undesirable consequences. If you have patiently...

Laying Down the Law – Toward a Perfect Man

Laying Down the Law – Toward a Perfect Man

Matthew 5:48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect. Colossians 1:28 [Christ] we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Yahshua.

Laying Down the Law – When God Changed the Menu

Laying Down the Law – When God Changed the Menu

The question often arises as to whether Christians are to observe the shadows of the Old Covenant. Should Christians keep the feasts of Yahweh? Should they rest on the Sabbath day? Is it the Father’s will for those in Christ to eat only those foods the Law of Moses declared to be clean? In this...

Laying Down the Law – A New Creation

Laying Down the Law – A New Creation

Galatians 6:15 For in Christ Yahshua neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but a new creation. In these words of the apostle Paul we come to the heart of what is truly important. Paul says that neither keeping the Law (circumcision), or not keeping the Law (uncircumcision),...

Laying Down the Law – The Road Less Traveled

Laying Down the Law – The Road Less Traveled

There are two main paths, or doctrinal positions, embraced by the majority of Christians today. One path promotes keeping the Law of Moses, or a body of laws endorsed by their group. These laws are used as the chief instrument to guide believers in their daily lives and various decisions. The...

T. Austin Sparks – On the Law

T. Austin Sparks – On the Law

Glen Pickren, a brother in Christ from California, sent me the following devotion from T. Austin Sparks. These words were written over 50 years ago. February 11 Once a person has learned to have faith, there is no more need to have the Law as a teacher. (Galatians 3:25 CEV) Sometimes revelation...

Laying Down the Law – The Law of Liberty

Laying Down the Law – The Law of Liberty

Have you ever considered why the Law delivered to Moses was written on tablets of stone? The stone tablets symbolized man’s heart. Yahweh provided a parable to show His people what would happen when His law is written on stony hearts. The immediate, and irresistible, result is that the Law is...

Laying Down the Law – A Law For Stony Hearts

Laying Down the Law – A Law For Stony Hearts

In the preceding chapter we looked at the unique environment Yahweh provided for the Law of Moses, an environment that no longer exists. In this post I want to look at a parallel theme. The Law of Moses was written for a specific type of man. Those who have been born again of the Spirit of Christ...

Laying Down the Law – The Missing Pieces

Laying Down the Law – The Missing Pieces

One aspect of the Law of Moses that many Christians have failed to properly examine today is the unique setting in which the Law was intended to be carried out. The Law was given to a peculiar people, at a specific time, under a unique government, and carried out by a priesthood especially...

Laying Down the Law – Moses My Servant is Dead

Laying Down the Law – Moses My Servant is Dead

Joshua 1:1-2 Now it came about after the death of Moses the servant of Yahweh, that Yahweh spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' servant, saying, "Moses My servant is dead; now therefore arise, cross this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them, to the sons of...

Laying Down the Law – My Servant Moses

Laying Down the Law – My Servant Moses

I have found that by studying the parabolic nature of the lives of Old Testament figures, much insight can be gained concerning matters that are shrouded in a fog of confusion. In the previous chapter we looked at the life of Hagar. Who would have known that the two wives of Abraham were intended...
