The Moral Law - A Shadow of Things to Come Many have set forth the argument that the ceremonial Law, and the Law of offerings and sacrifices, have been set aside for those who are in Christ, but the moral Law still holds sway over the life of an individual. They teach that the moral Law still is...

The Deficiency of the Law It offends some who revere the Law to see it described as deficient. Yet this is the testimony of the Scriptures. The Law was a shadow. Shadows lack substance. The Law could make nothing perfect. The Law could not impart divine life. The Law could not permanently take...

A New Spirit I will continue to lay a foundation of understanding, before proceeding to address specific arguments that advocate the continuance of the Law.

The Father’s Plan What is the Father’s ultimate thought in regard to mankind? We must answer this question if we are to perceive the Law’s role in the greater scheme of things. We can find the Father’s mind concerning man in the first chapter of the Bible. Genesis 1:26-28 Then God said, "Let Us...

A Wider View This is the second book in which I have included a chapter titled “A Wider View.” I have found that certain kingdom truths are difficult to comprehend unless we first envision the grand panoramic scope of Yahweh’s works and plans. When we focus narrowly on a subject, apart from...

Foreword A word of explanation is necessary at the start of this book. In this work you will find this writer using names in reference to God the Father and God the Son that are more faithful to their Hebrew original than the names and titles generally in use by the church today.

FOUNDATIONS – Part 18

Giants on the Earth The Bible presents a history of the earth in the days of man that is at times astonishing. It is not surprising that many who reject the divine inspiration of the Scriptures view its narratives as nonsense. There are even those among professing Christians who stumble in...

Beyond Babel Tower of Babel/EU Parliament Building I want to once again comment on the value of giving significant attention and time to an event that God allotted no more than ten verses to in the book of Genesis. Why trouble ourselves to understand what took place at Babel? What is the value for...

Nimrod, Babel, and its Tower Tower of Babel Stele From Time of Nebuchadnezzar As we continue to look at the ancient foundations of human history one may ask, “What is the benefit of doing so?” It is not uncommon for a school age child to question the value of their history lessons. They may see...
