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.


Genesis Chapter 41: Pharaoh’s Dream and Fulfillment, Joseph’s Promotion

We are reminded of Daniel, who was also a Hebrew. King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream and was troubled because he did not know its meaning (Daniel chapter 2). He was going to put all the magicians of Babylon to death because they could not tell his dream and interpret it. Then he summoned Daniel, who prayed, as did the three Hebrew children with him. Daniel both related and interpreted the dream of the great image with the head of gold, etc. A similarity in the two situations was that both Daniel and Joseph interpreted the ruler’s dream after the magicians and wise men could not do so.


Genesis Chapters 7 & 8 The Ark to the Rainbow

Jun 21st, 2009 | By | Category: Genesis, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

The announcement “yet seven days” told Noah to get ready to load the animals into the Ark. Then would come the rain for 40 days and 40 nights. In other words, to allow time to load the animals into the Ark, God marked off seven days before the rain would start. It would have taken considerably longer if Noah had had to find the animals through his own efforts, but God caused the animals to “come unto” him (Gen. 6:20). We can be sure that the holy angels were guiding the animals and bringing them to Noah in harmony with God’s instruction.

Spiritual reasoning: The Gospel Age is symbolized as comprising seven epochs before the Time of Trouble begins. There is a picture within a picture. The 120 years are a literal time period; the seven days are a symbolic time period. Both time periods end simultaneously with the commencement of the “flood.”
