In part one of this study, we saw that not only did God institute marriage as a bond between a man and a woman, He also joined other principles together in the plan of redemption. In the second half of ‘What God Has Joined Together’, we learn about two more theological unions that should not be broken.
Marriage is the union of a man and a woman that was instituted by God in the dawn of time. Jesus reminded the Pharisee’s of this in a conversation about divorce recorded in Matthew 19. He said, “what God hath joined together, let not man put asunder…” What else has God joined together? There is an inseparable relationship between other spiritual precepts and properties that we cannot separate without doing damage to the plan of redemption so far as its effect in our own hearts and lives. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we look at What God Has Joined Together…
This week, we celebrated Thanksgiving by joining with family and friends to return thanks for the bountiful blessings afforded us in America. If but for only a moment, the thoughts of multiplied millions were turned heavenward and hopefully we were humbled by the many benefits the Lord has graciously and undeservingly given to us. But Thanksgiving is every day in the life of a true Christian. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we hear Paul’s commandment to be “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ…” Are you a truly thankful person?
During the week of Jesus’ crucifixion, some Greeks who had come to Jerusalem approached the disciples wanting to speak to the Lord. Their request was in the form of a phrase that makes a powerful statement to Christians today: “We Would See Jesus!” This is the need of the hour. Unfortunately, the simple image mission and message of Christ has been obscured by the embellishments and doctrinal departures of modern religion. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak we’re reminded of the ancient plea that rings so very true today.
“Pharisee!” “Legalist!” “Judge not!” These are all charges and rebukes that are frequently and often carelessly bandied about in religious discussion today. What do they mean and are those hurling the charges and warnings using these terms accurately and fairly? They are some examples of words that have become religious buzzwords and phrases today. In the broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we cut through the emotion and sometimes propaganda to see what these words mean in their true sense and how they should be rightly applied.
