Jesus once posed a rhetorical question that one can not affirmatively answer: “What shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” Most people are thoughtlessly trading their most precious possession for things of little to no worth. What is a soul and what makes it so invaluable? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we consider The Worth Of Your Soul. Take a few moments and watch. It may affect where you spend eternity.
The finite mind cannot fully comprehend something or someone infinite. The tendency of mankind, therefore, is to reduce God to human likeness. Since people change, some assume that God changes with the passing of time as well but such is not the case. God is immutable. He does not choose to be so, He IS so because He is God. Change implies something improving or declining; getting larger or smaller; etc. but God cannot change and still be God. How could we truly know God, much less place our faith in One who vacillates and changes from one age to the next? But how do we reconcile this with changes we observe in the word of God itself? Is this a contradiction or does it mean that God has changed? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we look at the God who is unchanging in His purposes, His person, His pronouncements, and His promises.
Most scholars believe the 70 weeks prophecy found in Daniel 9 points to the arrival of the Messiah but the fulfillment of the 70th week is the center of much controversy. If the Messiah came after the 69th week (26 A.D.) did the 70th week then commence or did God “pause the clock” until a yet future time? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak: part 2 of our study on The 70 Weeks of Daniel.
Two viewers write to Let the Bible Speak asking if they have committed “the unpardonable sin” by falling away and turning back to the world. This and similar questions have often brought thoughts of doubt, defeat, and depression to many Christians. Some even wonder if they have committed what the bible describes as the sin with no forgiveness without even knowing it. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we turn to Matthew 12 to see what this sin actually involves. We will see what the unpardonable sin is NOT. We’ll also discover that although we cannot repeat the same scenario that Jesus warned the religious leaders about at that time, there is yet a warning to be gleaned.
The 70 weeks of Daniel is an intriguing prophecy of the future of Daniel’s beloved nation of Israel and its city of Jerusalem. It spans nearly five centuries of unfolding history from the return from captivity to the ministry of Christ and His apostles. Old Testament prophecy was given to point forward to and confirm the legitimacy of Israel’s Christ when He came. Like all others, this prophecy is perfectly fulfilled in the events of the first century and tell us that Jesus really is the Christ. In part one of a two-part lesson, we look at the panorama of events shown in “The 70 Weeks Of Daniel”.
