S2E06: Christ, Pre-Existent

S2E06: Christ, Pre-Existent

May 17, 2022

We see in scripture that Christ was in existence prior to His incarnation in Bethlehem and that He had conscious thoughts and actions before He came as a Man. This concept is discussed by the authors of the New Testament and we are able to find areas in the Old Testament that lend evidence to this theory. In this episode we discuss what it means for Christ to exist before His visit as the Son of Man and take some time to review some of the evidence seen in the Old Testament that can build the argument that Christ was doing work for Yehovah before His first visit to us as messiah for the lost. 

 

"Who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in human likeness."

Philippians 2:6-7

S2E05: Definitions - Begotten & Eternal

S2E05: Definitions - Begotten & Eternal

May 3, 2022

We see throughout the scriptures that Jesus is given a specific title by Yehovah, Begotten. Many English Bible translations today have replaced or removed this word for the sake of popular theology. The meaning of this word, as given to us by scripture, paints a picture of Yeshua as a Son of Yehovah who has a different origination than the rest of us who are considered to be Yehovahs children. In this episode we take a look at what this word means according to the bible and why its important to utilize the terms the bible has given us. Jesus Himself tells us where He came forth from and it will help us better understand what His relationship with the Father, Yehovah, really means for us and humanity. 

 

"I came forth from the Father, and have come into the world. Again I leave the world and go to the Father. The disciples said to Him, Lo, now You speak plainly and speak no parable. Now we know that You know all things and do not need that anyone should ask You. By this we believe that You have come forth from God."
John 16:28-30

S2E04: Definitions Divine & Deity

S2E04: Definitions Divine & Deity

April 19, 2022

Scripture shows us that Yehovah has a unique position in relation to creation and that, as His family, we are allowed to take part in that exclusive role. The example we have been given is through the ministry of Jesus during His first visit, empowered by the Holy Spirit, Jesus performed Signs and Miracles and this is a signature that Jesus was from Yehovah and this is the pattern for the life of a New Testament believer. While not knowing the proper biblical definitions for terms like divine and deity won't exclude us from salvation, it will help us avoid the deception that is on the way following the anti-christ and false prophet. In this episode we discuss the characteristics of Yehovah and what makes Him supreme Deity of creation and how Yeshua takes part in that. 

 

"For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and having been filled, you are in Him, who is the Head of all rule and authority,"
Colossians 2:9-10

S2E03: Definitions - Yehovah LORD

S2E03: Definitions - Yehovah LORD

April 12, 2022

In modern translations of scripture we see that the name of the Father, Yehovah, is often translated as just LORD. There is an important difference between the Fathers name and a title of Lord and in this episode we discuss how we know what the tetragrammaton is properly translated to and why the Almighty God of creation should be referred to by more than just a title when He has provided to us His name. 

 

“I, Yes I, am Yehovah, and there is no savior but Me.”

Isaiah 43:11

S2E02: Definitions - God Elohim

S2E02: Definitions - God Elohim

April 5, 2022

The term God is used by many Christians as a personal identifier for the God of the bible. In doing this many Christians remain in confusion when trying to understand the role of Yehovah and His begotten son Jesus. In this episode we take some time to biblically define the term God to better understand how that title can apply to Yehovah as well as other figures we see in scripture.

 

"Hear, Israel: LORD YEHOVAH our God[Elohim], LORD YEHOVAH is one:"

Deuteronomy 6:4

S2E01: Season Two Introduction

S2E01: Season Two Introduction

March 29, 2022

When we approach scripture and utilize the entire witness to build our views and beliefs, we find that a different picture of many ideas than what is pushed in many congregations and assemblies. As a Berean, the task at hand is to "Make every effort to present yourself approved to God, an unashamed workman who accurately handles the word of truth". In order to accurately handle the word of truth we need to spend the time and effort it takes to build an understanding from the bible as the highest authority we have been given to understand what Yehovah has authored. When it comes to difficult topics like the characteristics of who Yehovah is, His relation to His son Yeshua, and His Presence He has sent to us through His spirit, many people in history have turned to their own understanding, the reasoning and logic of philosophy, or to men of education for a deeper understanding of Yehovah only to introduce confusion into the body of Christ and allow deception to take root. 

In this episode we outline the objective for this second season and discuss some of the topics we will be working through in scripture. From proper definitions to examining false authorities that have brought in ideas that defy logic, reason, and break the laws of language as we know it in order to fit a paganized view of Yehovah into the scriptures. Follow along with us this season as we make the biblical case for what Yehovah has told us about Himself and how that can impact our personal relationship with Him today. 

 

"Yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist." 

1 Corinthians 8:6

S1E33: One Covenant to Eternal Life

S1E33: One Covenant to Eternal Life

March 8, 2022

Jesus tells us in Luke 22 that His blood would sign and bring to us a new covenant. This covenant would be called the law of liberty by James, and the law of the spirit of life by Paul. With this new covenant we are promised something that could never have been given through the law of sin and death, eternal life and inheritance of the earth with Yeshua at His return. Many Christians today get confused about the requirements of new covenant believers when listening to people who still follow after the old covenant but try to add the new covenant benefits to their blindness. In this episode we discuss some of the different things the bible shows us about how eternal salvation, immortality, and the presence of Yehovah in our lives today are a result of a new covenant. When we look backwards to a lesser standard we run the risk of cutting ourselves off from Christ. 

 

"And I testify again to every man being circumcised, that he is a debtor to do all the Law, you whoever are justified by Law, you were severed from Christ; you fell from grace."
Galatians 5:3-4

S1E32: A Different Gospel

S1E32: A Different Gospel

March 1, 2022

The bible warns us that there are many other messages that are in the world that disguise themselves as a gospel of Christ. As a Holy Spirit filled believer we are responsible for examining every teacher and ministry we follow against the standard of the bible. If we see behaviors that do not emulate Christ or His apostles and the writings of the bible we need to be willing to cut those things out of our lives. If we do not take this responsibility seriously we run the risk of being deceived by a gospel that only includes a partial truth or a counterfeit gospel. In this episode we examine a Sunday service visit in one of America's more well-known assemblies. 

 

"I am amazed how quickly you are deserting the One who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—which is not even a gospel. Evidently some people are troubling you and trying to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be under a curse! As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be under a curse!"

-Galatians 1:6-9

S1E31: End Times Timeline

S1E31: End Times Timeline

February 22, 2022

Jesus and the apostles all discuss the end of the age and the return of Christ to some degree. If we are diligent in our study of the word we will be able to piece together the timeline of the events leading up to and surrounding the return of Yeshua to the world. In this episode we take a look at the different events that are discussed throughout scripture that need to take place before we can see the return of Yeshua. Some events we can see in history as fulfilled, some we are still waiting to see, and some we can see unfolding before us in the news. We shouldn't be in the dark about the time we live in, we have been given the plan before hand so that we can prepare our faith accordingly.

 

"For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. So, if they say to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. If they say, ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it."
Matthew 24:24-26
