Mark Chapter 8: Feeding Multitudes, Healing Blind Man, Peter Rebukes, Admonitions

Jesus was trying to raise their thinking to a higher level. The supplied food represented his message, his words, but even the apostles did not have a depth of understanding until Pentecost when they got the Holy Spirit, the spirit of remembrance. Then the meaning of Jesus’ words dawned on them.

Song of Solomon Chapter 8: The Great Multitude Renew Their Love for the Lord, The Bride’s Concern for Her Sister

Jan 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Song of Solomon, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

Ostensibly the Bride seems to be speaking, but since the Church is already glorified and the Song of Solomon has been sequential for the last few chapters, the Great Company would be speaking here for several reasons. One reason is that a new chapter is properly indicated in Song 8:1 with a change of cadence. Another reason is that the glorified Church beyond the veil would not utter the words in verse 4. Chapter 8 is a sequel to the story in the Song of Solomon, in which the Bride class is now complete and attention is being focused on the Great Company class. At this point in time, the Great Company will have renewed zeal that will be just as fervent and at just as high a level as that of the true Church—but belatedly. They will get the equal portion of the Spirit and the oil and be enthusiastic. They would have made their calling and election sure if they had awakened to this fact in sufficient time.

Song of Solomon Chapter 6: The Bride’s Love for Christ and His Love for Them

Jan 12th, 2010 | By | Category: Song of Solomon, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

The Church are collectively considered to be “one.” “She is the only one of her mother, she is the choice one of her that bare her.” The “mother … that bare her” is the Sarah Covenant, the “Jerusalem … above, … which is the mother of us all” (Gal. 4:26).

1 Kings Chapter 19: Two Sleeps, Still Small Voice, Elijah’s Commission

Dec 15th, 2009 | By | Category: 1 & 2 Kings, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

At the end of the contest with the 450 prophets of Baal, the drought of 3 1/2 years also ended, picturing in the antitype the year 1799, the end of the long 1,260-year period of famine for the Word of God. The time periods indicated after Elijah fled from Jezebel in Jezreel are (1) the day’s journey into the wilderness when he separated from his servant and (2) the 40 days and nights of travel, which represent, respectively, one year and 40 years. What are the 40 years in the antitype?

Anointings and Slayings of Hazael, Jehu, and Elisha

We think all this information has been providentially hidden because of the multiplicity of detail, the confusion of the characters with duplicate names, and the repetition with Ramothgilead.

Daniel Chapter 3 The Three Hebrew Children

This golden image on the Plain of Dura corresponds to the image of the beast. Both are statues. Some call Daniel the Old Testament Book of Revelation, and others give Ezekiel that title. A lot of pictures and subpictures from both books are reflected in the Book of Revelation. Incidentally, the “gold” suggests divinity—false divinity in this case.

Elijah’s Fiery Chariot Part 5

Jun 2nd, 2009 | By | Category: Special Features (click on Article name)

SINCE Bible students have recognized that Elijah’s life was a prophecy—that he typed, or represented, the entire Church in his earthly experiences—his history has become the more interesting and the more intelligible. He was a faithful servant of God; but his greatest prophecy, that of his life, was not understood, even though the Lord declared, subsequently, “I will send you Elijah the Prophet before the coming of the great and terrible Day of the Lord.” (Malachi 4:5) This antitypical Elijah, beginning with Jesus in the flesh, has been coming and giving his message to the world for now more than eighteen centuries. We believe that the taking away of Elijah in the chariot of fire, narrated in today’s lesson, is about to be fulfilled as respects the Church of Christ in the flesh. Soon they shall be no more in the flesh; for the Lord will take them, will glorify them with Himself. As the Apostle explains, they will meet the Lord in the air, in the realm of spiritual control of the earth—in Kingdom power and great glory. —1 Thessalonians 4:17

The Final Experiences of the Church in Prophecy

May 1st, 2009 | By | Category: Prophetic

This discourse takes a look at several types given in Scripture that portray the “Final experiences of the Church in Prophecy.” We are told by two or more witnesses is a thing established, and the Word of God gives ample evidence on this topic. Consider: Gideon, Elijah and Elisha, John the Baptist, Michaiah, Daniel, Three Hebrew Children, and the Wise and Foolish Virgins. What do they all have in common? What is the lesson they are teaching? One thing is that they were willing to lay down their lives for what they knew God would have them do. Another was they were ready to do their part, by giving a message (smiting waters, letting light shine, confronting dignitaries), when the LORD God set the scene for them to do so. Are you ready? Are you willing? Watch and Pray!

Jehu: His Anointing and Deeds

Apr 4th, 2009 | By | Category: Prophetic

This Bible study discusses 1 Kings 19:15-17. The prophet Elijah is commissioned to anoint three people: Elisha, Hazael, and Jehu, but he only anoints Elisha by passing him the mantle when taken by the whirlwind. An unknown prophet anoints Jehu in Ramoth Gilead. It is very clear that Jezebel is typical of a false religous system (Babylon the Great, Mother of Harlots in Revelation) Jehu is the very one responsible for her destruction, so if she is a type, then so is Jehu, so who does he represent? Who do the others in this picture represent? This destruction is still future and events are still clarifying for we are told the “light grows brighter and brighter unto the perfect day.”
