Come, Let Us Reason Together

Jul 31st, 2012 | By | Category: Special Features (click on Article name)

The Lord’s invitation, “Come, let us reason together,” implies that we are to reason with Him, inside these lines which He has erected for our preservation from error, and not that we should abandon His Word to reason for ourselves.

Life and death from the Scriptural standpoint are finalities—life everlasting or death everlasting.

Redemption in Christ

Jan 31st, 2012 | By | Category: Special Features (click on Article name)

But though salvation could never come by the Law, Paul shows that God had a way provided, apart from the Law, whereby men could be saved–not merely Jews, but all men who would come unto Him in His appointed way

The Book of Ruth Chapter1: Naomi, Ruth, and Orpah in Moab

Nov 9th, 2009 | By | Category: Ruth, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

The name Elimelech means “God is King.” His wife’s name, Naomi, signifies “pleasantness,” “pleasant one.” Mahlon and Chilion were their two sons. Mahlon means “sickly,” “one having an infirmity,” and the thought of Chilion is “pining” or “wasting.” Both of the sons’ names suggest a process of illness, a sickly condition. In antitype they represent the Jewish people, the ten-tribe and the two-tribe kingdoms, who rejected Jesus. Jesus said, “Behold, your house is left unto you desolate” (Matt. 23:38).

Ruth Chapter 2: Naomi sends Ruth to Boaz’s field

Nov 9th, 2009 | By | Category: Ruth, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

Ruth ended up in “a part of the field” that belonged to Boaz. At first glance, her being there seemed to be by chance, but she was providentially guided. The “field” was actually a valley or a plain, so the thought is that Ruth went to Boaz’s portion of the plain.

The Law required that corners of the field not be reaped in order to leave them for the poor. Therefore, the poor were at liberty to enter the corners and glean there. However, Ruth “gleaned … after the reapers”; that is, she gathered the “crumbs,” the residue, after the reapers had gone through. Whatever fell to the ground when the grain was bound in bundles was also to be left for the poor.

Ruth Chapter 3: Ruth Uncovers Boaz’s Feet

Nov 9th, 2009 | By | Category: Ruth, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

The Book of Ruth is a beautiful story of the Gospel Age from the standpoint of principle and the things that endear the Ruth class to Boaz (Jesus), but when Ruth and Naomi came back to Israel, it was the time of harvest. Hence, at that point, the picture shifts down to the end of the Gospel Age. Ruth 2:23 says that Ruth gleaned through both the barley and the wheat harvests. In gathering the wheat, she threshed only for her private use. Regarding the end of the age, the collective standpoint is also significant. Ruth gleaned to the end of the barley and wheat harvests and dwelled with her mother-in-law.

Behold the Goodness and the Severity of God!

Nov 7th, 2009 | By | Category: Booklets (click on booklet name), Christian Character

God’s love was not previously manifested; for over four thousand years only the severity, the justice of the divine character was manifested, though a hint was given to Abraham and subsequently through the prophets, that God had kind sentiments toward the fallen and tainted race, which in due time would bring blessings to all the families of the earth.

Romans Chapter 3: The Christian and the Law

Nov 6th, 2009 | By | Category: Romans, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

Chapters 1-3 are introductory. In chapter 4, Paul would begin to reason by telling what the Old Testament teaches. He would say in effect, “I did not write the Old Testament, for it has existed for hundreds of years. In what purports to be the Word of God is the message that Jesus brought and that I, as an apostle of Jesus, am preaching.” First, however, he wanted to get everyone in a humble frame of mind by putting them on a common level. He reasoned, “After all, who are we and what are we? We are nothing unless God somehow provides a way of escape, and that way of escape is Jesus, whom I will preach.”

The Book of Ruth

Jul 17th, 2009 | By | Category: Miscellanious Topics, MP3 Sermons (Click on Sermon name), Tabernacle or Temple

The book of Ruth is a love story much in the way Song of Solomon is a love story with very deep significance. Br. Frank very adeptly goes into the nuances of this love story and its spiritual significance. Ruth is a picture of the church, who embraces the Sarah Covenant (Naomi) and who is redeemed by Boaz. Its a very touching story which we don’t want to give too much of it away in the this description, but encourage all to listen and you will come away with a greater appreciation of the Word of God.

“He is Faithful and Just”

Jul 7th, 2009 | By | Category: The Basics (click on Article name)

WE KNOW of no heathen religion which teaches a god of mercy and love and kindness. Heathen deities are represented as powerful, ferocious, terrible. The people fear them as demons, but know nothing about the God of Love. Alas! that we must say it, but there are many Christians who, misled by the creeds of the Darker Ages, do not recognize, do not worship the God of the Bible—the God of all Grace, concerning whom we have the declaration, “God is Love.”
