042 – Messiah’s Calendar Part 3

The Hebrew Spring Feasts

The Hebrew spring feasts prefigured every major event in the life and ministry of Jesus the Messiah during His first coming.

Today’s program is Part 3 of Messiah’ Calendar. If you haven’t listened to Parts 1 and 2, after listening to today’s study I encourage you to go back and listen to those.

Messiah’s Calendar is a study of how the entire ministry of Jesus spanning 7000 years is reflected in the ancient Hebrew sanctuary and the Hebrew feasts. The sanctuary also helps us to see how Jesus’ life and ministry were a reenactment of the spiritual journey of the Jewish people from their deliverance from Pharaoh to their installment in the Promised Land.

The ancient Hebrew sanctuary is a microcosm of the … Continue reading

041 – Spiritual Warfare Testimony

Spiritual warfare is real. It’s both personal and cosmic. Marla uses a real story to illustrate universal principles of spiritual warfare.

In today’s program we’ll be talking some more about the great conflict that started in heaven and will continue until God has eradicated evil from the universe. We’ll also be discussing how to win the war so that Jesus can come back and take us home. We haven’t yet finished the series on the Hebrew feasts called Messiah’s Calendar – I’ll be working on Part 3 of that series after this program.

But I had to interrupt that series to share with you an experience I had a couple of weeks ago as I was preparing to travel to Arkansas. I was invited to … Continue reading

040 – Messiah’s Calendar Part 2

Jesus’ Movement through the Sanctuary

The Plan of Redemption is unfolding on time according to key prophecies. Jesus’ movement through the sanctuary marks the big phases of God’s Plan of Redemption.

Today’s program is Part 2 of Messiah’s Calendar, a study of the “mystery of God” contained in the ancient Hebrew Sanctuary and the Jewish religious calendar. Today we’ll be looking at three important aspects of the Sanctuary: 1) We’ll address the question of whether we still need to keep the Sabbath. In our last program 039 – Messiah’s Calendar Part 1 we said that we don’t need to keep the feasts, but do we need to keep the Sabbath? We’re going to tackle that question first. 2) We’re going to consider the … Continue reading

The ancient Jewish sanctuary and the Jewish feasts are patterned after God’s Plan of Salvation for Jews and Gentiles. They contain the secret code for endtime prophecy.

The Jewish Feasts

Introduction

Today’s study – Part 1 of Messiah’s Calendar – is based on the sanctuary and on the Hebrew religious calendar. I’ve shared with you before that the study of the ancient sanctuary is one of the teachings that has most increased my faith. Every aspect of the sanctuary points to a beautiful, precious truth about God’s Plan of Salvation for mankind. Every ritual and every sacrifice points not to bulls and goats, which cannot atone for sin, but points to Jesus: the pre-ordained Messiah of both Jews and Gentiles.

The Bible says … Continue reading

038 – Trump: What’s in a Name?

The word “trump” has rich meaning in the English language and in the Bible. Is Donald Trump’s name a prophetic sign from God?

In today’s program I’ll be discussing the significance of the name of our newly elected US President, Donald Trump, in relation to Bible prophecy for the end time. It’s fascinating that Trump’s name is so rich in meaning, both in the secular meaning of the word and in the biblical meaning of the word. Personally I don’t think this is a coincidence. I submit to you that Donald Trump’s name might be a sign from God with prophetic meaning: both the secular meaning of … Continue reading

Knowing and Trusting God Amid Spiritual Deception

WalkOnWater

Spiritual deception

Recently I was asked to speak on an international prayer line about trusting God. I thought to myself: how interesting! Here I am, someone who has suffered so much spiritual deception is asked to speak about trust. When I had my spiritual awakening (I was living in France at the time) I was such an innocent and sincere seeker of higher truths and spiritual light. But I was deceived by New Age false prophets, false teachings, and false practices. Then I came to Christ and was again deceived by false prayer warriors and false deliverances.

More recently I experienced another episode of deception, even though I was already a student and teacher of God’s Word and walking in His ways. It completely shook … Continue reading
