How Pilgrims Praise: Psalms of Ascent

Turn with me if you would to Psalm 132 as we come now very shortly to the close of these fifteen Ascent Psalms, Psalm 132, bearing as it does the title “Prayer for the Lord's Blessing upon the Sanctuary. A Song of Ascents.”

“Remember, O Lord, on David's behalf, all his affliction; How he swore to the Lord, and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob, “Surely...

A Promise and a Covenant

If you have your Bibles I'd invite you to turn with me to Genesis, chapter 26 as we continue our study in the life of Isaac. This is a very important chapter. Isaac is probably displayed for us more in Genesis 26 than in any other area of the book of Genesis. We get a...

If you have your Bibles, please turn with me to Genesis, chapter 26. We have studied through the life of Isaac beginning in Genesis 24. We said that though Abraham was still alive during the time of that chapter, the shift has turned to Isaac and his future. Genesis 24, verse 1 all the way to...

Part XVII

Genesis 22:15-24

The Covenant Assured

Last week we concentrated on the first half of this chapter, verses 1 through 14, and we said that Abraham's surrender of his son Isaac was a mirror of God's still greater love, and Abraham's exercise of faith in God's promises. Hebrews tells us he believed that the Lord would raise Isaac again from the dead if...

Part I

Genesis 12:1-9

The Promises of God (The Life of Abraham) — 1. The Call of Go

If you would look with me at God's word in Genesis, chapter 12. We’re going to attend tonight to verses 1 through 9. We, of course, are beginning the life of Abraham at this juncture. We have seen the preface to this great book set forth in the...

We have already looked at definitions of covenant and we have, or definitions of diatheke and berith, and the arguments over that translational controversy.  And we have looked at one passage in the New Testament in some detail, the passage in Hebrew 9, which is difficult to translate.  Many Bible translations will start in 9:15, with the word covenant, and they will switch to testament and then back...

As we have already mentioned, Hebrews has more occurrences of diatheke than in the rest of the New Testament.  This relative prominence of the covenant conception in Hebrews may be attributed to the authors’ preoccupation with the comparison with the old and with the new religious systems of Judaism and Christianity.  I mean it is natural that you would revert to the covenant concept to help you describe...

I want to look at Jeremiah 31, because that is obviously the only passage in the prophetic literature which uses the terminology New Covenant.  That terminology of New Covenant becomes very, very significant in the New Testament itself.  It is picked up by the author of Hebrews, but it is also mentioned in the Last Supper narrative by the Lord Jesus Himself, as He explains the meaning of...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to 2 Samuel 7.  We are going to rapidly overview to the Davidic Covenant and especially the establishment of the house of David in II Samuel 7 

The Davidic Covenant

Robertson says that the climax of the Old Covenant is found in the coming of the kingdom in David’s day.  When the king...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Romans chapter 2.  I want to point your attention to two verses.  We are going to begin today by making some observations about dispensationalism and then we are going to give a rapid overview to the Davidic Covenant and especially the establishment of the house of David in II Samuel 7.  But first I...

The whole  area of the law of Moses and the economy of God. The Mosaic Covenant and how it relates to the Covenant of Grace, and especially to the New Testament, is one of the fundamental issues that underlies the difference between dispensationalism and Covenant Theology.  So bearing that in mind as we plow into this material today, I think it will help us understand the importance on...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Colossians chapter 2, Colossians chapter 2.  We will begin reading in verse 8. 

“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to turn with me to Genesis chapter 17, Genesis chapter 17.  In Genesis chapter 17, in verse 1, we read, 

Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; Walk before Me, and be blameless. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you, And I...

If you have your Bibles, turn with me to the book of Genesis chapter 6.  Genesis 6, beginning in verse 9. 

These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God. And Noah became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the...

If you have your Bibles, please open to Genesis 3:14 as we read God’s Word.

And the Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field.  On your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life.  And I will put enmity between you...

If you have your Bibles, I would invite you to open with me to Genesis 1.  We read the passage last week, and we will look at it again.  In Genesis 1 we will focus on verse 24 and following.
