Malachi Chapter 2: What God thinks of the Disobedient, Levi, Divorce

Mar 9th, 2012 | By | Category: Malachi, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

It is hard to “turn many away from iniquity” if one is not a good example himself of walking properly before God. The priesthood of Malachi’s day was doing the opposite and, consequently, was leading many into iniquity.

The Tabernacle’s Teachings

Jun 9th, 2010 | By | Category: Special Features (click on Article name)

This is the object of the sin-offerings; to release mankind from the dominion of death and restore them to the perfection of being which is essential to perfect happiness and at-one-ment with the Creator. This is the blessing which comes to all the families of the earth through The Seed of Abraham. This is the good news which was preached to Abraham, as we read: “God, foreseeing that He would justify the heathen [all mankind—Gentiles] through faith, preached before the gospel [good tidings] to Abraham, saying, In thee, and in thy seed, shall all nations be blessed [justified]…which Seed is Christ [primarily the head, and secondarily the body]; and if ye be Christ’s [members] then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” referred to—viz.: that these may bless all the families of the earth. (Gal. 3:16,19) But the Seed must be complete before the blessing comes, as shown in the type just considered:—The sin-offering must be ended before all the blessings resulting can flow out.

Did the Israelites ever get to see their promise land before they entered?

Yes, they came to the land shortly after crossing the Red Sea. They sent spys out into the Promised Land, but they were all afraid, except Joshua and Caleb. They refused to hear their report and were condemned to wander in the wilderness 40 years.

Exodus Chapter 32, The Golden Calf, Moses Breaks Tablets, People drink the Calf

Jul 24th, 2009 | By | Category: Exodus, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

Verses 1–6 are a historical commentary on what took place at the foot of Mount Sinai in Moses’ absence. In verses 7–14 God informed Moses, who was still up on the mount, about the events just described by the commentator. We will consider these verses in more detail. When Moses delayed to come down from the mount, the people demanded that Aaron make gods to go before them in returning to Egypt (Acts 7:37–40). Moses was on Mount Sinai for 40 days and nights. We do not know how much time elapsed before the molten calf was built, but probably about 10 days remained from the time the people went to Aaron; that is, they may have waited a month before going to him.

What seemingly justified the people in taking up this matter with Aaron? What were they thinking? They reasoned that Moses was dead and that thus he was not coming back. They showed disrespect for Moses in saying, “This Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt …” They lacked faith and felt they were abandoned in the desert. Hence they were thinking about going back to Egypt.

Exodus Chapter 6 God Promises to Deliver Israel from Pharaoh, Lineage of Aaron

Jul 15th, 2009 | By | Category: Exodus, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

We are in a much better position today—4,000 years later—to understand the experiences in the Wilderness than the Israelites back there, for we have the benefit of God’s deeds over the years, as recorded in Scripture. Israel’s experiences were relatively limited, so we can commiserate, to a certain extent, even with their complaining initially. The nation of Israel, which had started with the children of Jacob, went back only 200-plus years at this time. However, as the miracles occurred, the people should have stored up a memory bank to increase their faith. We, as Christians, can avoid discouragement by thinking back on how God originally called us and then led us step by step into clearer and clearer understanding. Tracing providences increases faith. We look back at past providences and look forward to future promises.

Moses grew and learned. His long oration in the Book of Deuteronomy just before his death shows his maturity. We, too, have to grow from a babe into the full stature of a man in Christ Jesus. And we are assisted when we assemble together, for we learn from one another’s mistakes and strengths.

Exodus Chapter 5 Let My People Go–Go Find the Straw to Make Your Bricks

Jul 15th, 2009 | By | Category: Exodus, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and requested that he let the Israelites go so that they could hold a feast unto God in the wilderness. Of course the intent was to leave Egypt for good, but this method was a tactful way to begin approaching Pharaoh. God had told Moses earlier that Pharaoh would refuse.

The Hebrews had been using supplied straw. Now they had to gather the straw themselves. The gathering would take time, yet the number of bricks could not be decreased. Pharaoh wanted to so burden the Hebrews that they would not even think of asking for liberty to sacrifice religiously.

What is the spiritual lesson? When we give our hearts to the Lord or even if we are just contemplating giving our hearts, the Adversary uses every possible means to distract or sidetrack us into another avenue that will occupy our time. Pharaoh is a picture of Satan here. If Satan sees someone seeking liberty through Christ from the burden of sin and death, he specially tries to make it difficult for that individual to pursue consecration. The people are already burdened, and he increases the burdens.

Psalms 46 and 81

Jul 8th, 2009 | By | Category: Miscellanious Topics, MP3 Sermons (Click on Sermon name), Prophetic, Psalm 83 and Gog & Magog

Psalm 46 discusses the Great Time of Trouble and Jacob’s Trouble. Here we as Christians have the promise that God will help us “right early” in the dawning of our resurrection change. But the Holy Remnant of the Nation of Israel who survive the Gog and Magog invasion, will survive because helped by the Lord God Himself. The glorified Bride of Christ will behold with their eyes the works of God from heaven itself.

In Psalm 81 God reminds Israel of all that He had done for them when He saved them from Egypt. He will pour them out a blessing so big, if only they will accept Him and listen to Him. This promise is still valid for the Jew today.

Exodus Chapters 3 & 4 Burning Bush, 3 Signs from God, Aaron Comes to Moses

Jul 3rd, 2009 | By | Category: Exodus, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

As with Jesus, there is little information about Moses’ earlier years. We hear nothing about Jesus between his birth and age 12, and then nothing until he was age 30. With Moses we hear only that he married Zipporah, had two sons, and was living in the desert tending flocks. He had been in the Wilderness of Sinai for 40 years at this point in time. Now Moses was 80 years old. God overruled that Moses would take the flocks to Mount Sinai at this time so that the incident of the burning bush could occur, resulting in the Exodus eventually—at God’s due time. Meanwhile, Moses’ 40 years in the desert had familiarized him with the terrain to later lead the Israelites.
