S1E19: Yom Teruah

S1E19: Yom Teruah

November 30, 2021

Scripture shows us that Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for not being able to discern the time that had arrived, the signs of the messiah and the evidence that Jesus was the one prophesied to come. Scripture also points to the fact that Jesus will return and we have also been given signs to look for to warn of the second coming of Jesus. The moedim of Leviticus 23 are the foundation to the understanding of end times study and Yom Teruah is a specific time that Jesus alluded to regarding His return. In this episode we take a look at the appointed time of Yehovah that is focused on the message of repentance and the return of the king to take His throne. 

 

"...in an instant, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed."

1 Corinthians 15:52

S1E18: Political Correctness

S1E18: Political Correctness

November 23, 2021

Gods word tells us that the world will suppress the truth of the gospel in their wickedness. We are seeing a pandemic of political correctness in America that is creeping in to the groups that are supposed to be following Christ. In this episode we take a detour to discuss the issue of the world pressuring the Christian body to compromise on their ideals and convictions, or to validate and advocate for sinful or wicked behaviors. What do we do to stand firm for the truth? Why is it such an issue for believers to hold the line and not compromise in what God has said is right or wrong? God gives us the formula to success in His word, it's our responsibility to dig that out and apply it to our lives. 

 

"The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness. For what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood from His workmanship, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking and darkened in their foolish hearts. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images of mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles."

Romans 1:17-23

S1E17: The Kingdom Now Or Later?

S1E17: The Kingdom Now Or Later?

November 16, 2021

There are many ideas floating around the body of believers today about when or how the kingdom will exist. Some argue it's strictly spiritual and has already come and gone starting in the first century, others claim we are responsible for cleaning things up before Jesus can return to establish the kingdom, and some make the claim that the bible didn't mean what it said when it tells us the kingdom will be a physical theocracy headquartered in Jerusalem and will last for 1000 literal years. In this episode we cover some of the surface level issues with these ideas and look at what the bible actually says about the future kingdom to come. 

 

"I was looking in the night visions. And behold! One like the Son of Man came with the clouds of the heavens. And He came to the Ancient of Days. And they brought Him near before Him. And dominion was given to Him, and glory, and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed."
Daniel 7:13-14

S1E16: Satan Bound A Thousand Years

S1E16: Satan Bound A Thousand Years

November 9, 2021

John writes in revelations that Satan is bound and thrown into the abyss before the kingdom is established. In this episode we take a look at what scripture talks about in relation to this binding and what we can understand about the why behind this event. Scripture tells us that the kingdom will be a time of peace and prosperity, with the main rebel and his team taken care of, this can be a reality. 

 

"Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven with the key to the Abyss, holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. And he threw him into the Abyss, shut it, and sealed it over him, so that he could not deceive the nations until the thousand years were complete. After that, he must be released for a brief period of time."

Revelation 20:1-3

S1E15: The Kingdom of Heaven is Like

S1E15: The Kingdom of Heaven is Like

November 2, 2021

Throughout the ministry of Jesus, He gives us multiple parables that illustrate the different characteristics of the Kingdom of Yehovah and the events leading up to it. In this episode we take a look at some of the different parables and the meaning behind them and how we can better understand the Kingdom to come. 

 

"Again, the kingdom of Heaven is compared to a drag net thrown into the sea, and gathering together of every kind; which, when it was filled, drawing it up on the shore, and sitting down, they gathered the good into containers, and they threw out the rotten. So it will be in the completion of the age: the angels will go out and will separate the evil from the midst of the righteous, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; there will be weeping and gnashing of the teeth."
Matthew 13:47-50

S1E14: Intro to the Kingdom Parables

S1E14: Intro to the Kingdom Parables

October 26, 2021

"As He said these things, He would call out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” His disciples began questioning Him as to what this parable meant. And He said, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is in parables, so that seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand. “Therefore I speak to them in parables; because while seeing they do not see, and while hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. " Luke 8:8-10. Jesus tells us there is a reason behind the giving of parables to the people, so they wouldn't find understanding of the things regarding His teachings. In this episode we discuss some of the things to consider when approaching biblical parables and take a quick look at some of them that discuss the future kingdom. 

 

"He replied, “The knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them." - Matthew 13:11

S1E13: Power & Authority in Christ

S1E13: Power & Authority in Christ

October 19, 2021

The bible tells us that Yehovah has given His Son Power and Authority over all of creation, things seen and unseen. As a follower of Christ we are allowed access to the power and authority that was given to Christ to work against the powers of darkness, to win souls and advance the message of the coming kingdom. In this episode we take a look at how this can and should affect our lives as believers and how we should mature into a strong and empowered walk as we follow Christ in the will of Yehovah. 

 

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." 

Acts of the Apostles 1:8

S1E12: The Spiritual Kingdom

S1E12: The Spiritual Kingdom

October 12, 2021

Scripture and Jesus tell us that there is something greater than our physical existence, a kingdom ruled by Yehovah from His throne in heaven. We see evidence scattered throughout the bible that Yehovah is in charge and the things that take place in the spiritual realm are what effect our lives in the physical. Many Christians today still view our physical existence as a higher priority than the spiritual but the bible shows us things are the other way around. While Christ will establish His physical kingdom when He returns and receives dominion over the earth, He established a believers connection to the spiritual kingdom through the presence of Yehovah in our lives through His Holy Spirit. In this episode we outline the basics of the spiritual kingdom. 

 

"Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.” John 18:36

S1E11: Salvation & Redemption

S1E11: Salvation & Redemption

October 5, 2021

Throughout scripture we see evidence that Yehovah provides salvation, that He is a deliverer and can be the savior for those that trust in Him. In this episode we take a look at some key definitions regarding the context of salvation for the Hebrew people vs. eternal salvation for the believer who has faith in Jesus. We also take some time to define what redemption means for us as followers of Christ and the responsibility that comes with that price being paid. 

 

"For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to everyone. It instructs us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live sensible, upright, and godly lives in the present age, as we await the blessed hope and glorious appearance of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. He gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds."- Titus 2:11-14

S1E10: The Day of Yehovah

S1E10: The Day of Yehovah

September 28, 2021

In this episode we take a look at a specific event that is prophesied to take place before the Kingdom of God is established, the Day of Yehovah. This day is described by the major and minor prophets as well as the apostles, as a time of wrath, destruction, vengeance, and justice. We see that this is also a time period that will be a physical destruction to both the wicked and those that abused the gospel of Christ. Following the pattern of this study, we know this a future day we are anticipating and that those in Christ have nothing to fear but can consider this to be a time of salvation and deliverance for those who love Yehovah.

 

"and to give you, those being afflicted, relief with us at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from Heaven with angels of His power, in flaming fire giving full vengeance to those not knowing God, and to those not obeying the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will pay the penalty: everlasting destruction from the face of the Lord, "and from the glory of His strength," - 2Thessalonians 1:7-9
