Malachi Chapter 3: The Day of His Coming!

Mar 22nd, 2012 | By | Category: Malachi, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

As a point of interest, this book is called the “Book of Malachi,” and the word “Malachi” means “my messenger.” Thus this book is a paronomasia, a play on words, used by God to keep the message from being understood too clearly too quickly. Present truth is needed to even begin to scratch the surface.

The Day of Judgment

Three great periods of separation are, we think, clearly revealed in God’s Word: 1) “The separation of the chaff from the wheat,” Matt. 3:10,12; 2) “the tares from the wheat,” Matt. 13:37,43; 3) and “the sheep from the goats,” Matt. 25:31. The third great separation like the previous two cover a period of time yet future.

Why did Isaiah use word “youths” in chapter 40:30 what is his meaning?

Jan 9th, 2010 | By | Category: Questions You Ask (click for the full answer)

Without God’s protection and providence, we are nothing. We may think we have youth on our side, but the times will be so hard and seem like it will go on forever, we will not have the stamina to get through these times if the Lord didn’t take care of us. God will “renew their strength” because they will be on their last leg so to speak.

The Second Epistle Of John: Antichrists and Deceivers

Dec 12th, 2009 | By | Category: 1st & 2nd & 3rd John, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

Many deceivers were active, and some may even have been entertained in her home. John was concerned about doctrinal error. One error was that Christ had merely appeared at his First Advent, that he was not really flesh and blood (a human being) but a spirit being and thus an apparition. Hence the false teachers said that Jesus did not really die on the Cross. Angels appeared (materialized) in Old Testament times, ate a meal, and then disappeared. The false teachers thought the same of Jesus by mixing things he did before and after his resurrection. This error paved the way for Satan to later introduce the Antichrist teaching that Jesus was half God and half man and only seemed to die on the Cross—that it was God on the Cross. This false teaching destroyed the need for a vicarious sacrifice to pay the price for sin, whereas flesh and blood had to pay for the sin of Adam. If we do not remember this fact, we will forget that we need to be forgiven for sin, and the false teachers back there said they did not sin—and hence did not need forgiveness. Christian Scientists think somewhat along this erroneous line. Truth was distorted; Scriptures were perverted. This false teaching was the means by which Satan deceived.

Isaiah Chapter 45: Cyrus–Antitype of Jesus who takes down Mystic Babylon

Nov 30th, 2009 | By | Category: Isaiah, Psalm 83 and Gog & Magog, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

God “girded” Cyrus in two ways: (1) He gave Cyrus supernatural power in overcoming his enemies. (2) God prepared Cyrus as a child and fashioned him for his future work; He trained him for his position as general and renowned conqueror. Not only was God’s providence over the victories Cyrus later attained, but that providence operated from his earliest youth—even from his baptism, as it were, when he was given the name Cyrus. Thus God’s remarkable foreknowledge was displayed 150 years before the events occurred.

Ezekiel Chapter 2: God preparing Ezekiel for his mission

Nov 18th, 2009 | By | Category: Ezekiel, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

God was telling Ezekiel in advance, “Though I give you this message, it will not be accepted. In fact, the populace as a whole will reject it, but preach the message nevertheless, and do not be afraid of their looks.” Because of his strong denunciations, Ezekiel was called “the Moses of the captivity.” Christians who utter uncompromising proclamations of truth also have the experience of dwelling among briars, thorns, and scorpions, as it were. The feet members will have a parallel experience at the end of the age.

Isaiah Chapter 5: Israel’s Sins, Gog and Magog prophecied

Nov 14th, 2009 | By | Category: Isaiah, Psalm 83 and Gog & Magog, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

As the enemy roars, Israel will be frozen with terror, powerless to deliver itself. This verse indicates that the enemy is succeeding and there is no hope for Israel. In Scripture, a lion is noted for the strength of its jaw and its roar. When a lion captures a prey, its powerful jaws scrunch the animal, bones and all, in the eating process. Here the lion has the victim in its jaws and is carrying it away. The sound of the flint on the pavement and the roar of the lion both cause terror to the beholding victim.
