Genesis Study 42

April 17th, 2014 | Filed Under: Author, Book Studies, Genesis, Larry Groenewald0 Comments

Foundational themes in Genesis – Study 42 (Key verses: Gen 8:20-22; Gen 9:1-17; Gen 15:9-17) The theme of God making a covenant with humanity is central to all that God is doing in and through the generation of the first man Adam. Covenants appear throughout the Scriptures which all combine to give us very important aspects involved in this foundational theme. All physical covenants which we find in the Old Testament help us to understand God’s one spiritual and “everlasting covenant” to make all in Adam spiritually perfect in Christ (Rom 1:20; Eph 2:11-12). The new covenant is the one true covenant and it is more excellent and much more glorious because God has promised that He will indeed make all things, all in the generation of the first Adam, new in spirit through Christ Jesus (Jer 31:31-33; Deu 4:13; Deu 9:9-11; Heb 8:6; Heb 9:4; Php 1:10; 2Cor 5:17). The old (in all its various details, including the ten commandments) is indeed just a shadow and the exact opposite of the new and is used by God as a “schoolmaster” to bring us to the “the good things to come” (John 1:17; Heb 10:1; Gal 3:23-25; Gal 5:17).

Heb 13:20-21 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting [Greek: “aiōnios” = age binding] covenant, 21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Foundational themes in Genesis – Study 41 (Key verses: Gen 8:1-19)

The natural mind in the generation of the first Adam was made by God to focus on natural things, and God deludes the carnal mind to think he has a “free” will by which man determines the means of survival within the physical environment, independent from God (Gen 2:7; Matt 16:23; 2Thes 2:11; 1Cor 1:20; 1Co 2:14; Jas 3:15).

The Spiritual Significance of Birthdays

April 8th, 2014 | Filed Under: Author, Birthday, Topical Studies, Victor Torres0 Comments

Birthday celebrations are mentioned three times in the Holy Scriptures. Two times in the old testament and one time in the new. One of my brothers said in a fellowship that in all of these three events, someone died. When I mentioned this to someone who celebrates birthdays, he said that that is just a coincidence. These conversations are what inspired me to study these birthday celebrations. I used the following principles to study God’s Word:

1Co 10:11 And all these things as types did happen to those persons, and they were written for our admonition, to whom the end of the ages did come,

1Co 2:13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual with spiritual.

Luk 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you

Rev 1:3 Blessed is the one who reads and hears the Words of this prophecy, and the ones keeping the things written in it, for the time is near.

Genesis Study 40

April 3rd, 2014 | Filed Under: Author, Book Studies, Genesis, Larry Groenewald0 Comments

Foundational themes in Genesis – Study 40 (Key verses: Gen 7:6-24)

The global flood in “the days of Noah” helps us to understand how God lifts and strengthens us through the very things He takes away from us through judgement (Isa 9:6-7; Isa 2:2-4; Dan 2:34-35; 2Thes 1:3-5; Php 1:28).
The theme of spiritual elevation or spiritual growth is foundational to our understanding of the dynamics involved in the process of salvation for all in the generation of the first man Adam (1Cor 15:22-28; Php 2:9-11; Col 1:15-20; Php 1:6; Eph 1:10).
This very important historic event of the flood typifies God’s spiritual judgement in “the days of…the coming of the Son of man” when everyone in Adam will learn that His righteousness will be established in all (Mat 24:37-39; Luk 17:26-27; 1Pet 3:20; Isa 26:9; 1Cor 10:11; 1Cor 4:6).
The waters in Noah’s day also typify the cleansing fire of God’s wrath on the old man, the first Adam in all.
It points to the one baptism through which spiritual life comes to all who sleeps and are dead in the generation of the first Adam, as all in Adam are appointed to obtain a spiritual awakening to live in Christ (Ecc 9:2; Eph 5:26; Rom 6:3-4):

Eph 4:5-6 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Genesis Study 39

March 27th, 2014 | Filed Under: Author, Book Studies, Genesis, Larry Groenewald0 Comments

Foundational themes in Genesis – Study 39 (Key verses: Gen 6:17-22; Gen 7:1-5)

God is working his perfect one plan of salvation of all within two generational lines which is a natural Adam first, and “afterward” all in that natural man will be made new in the spirit man, Jesus Christ (1Cor 15:22-28; 1Cor 15:45-50). Right in the beginning of the book of Genesis (the Greek word for generations) these two lines are established being the two opposing sides of the darkness (which refer to all carnality and physical things), and the light, which is God’s spirit or eternal things (Gen 1:1-5; Isa 45:7; Gen 3:15; John 3:6; Gal 2:3; 2Ti 2:20):

Gal 5:17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh. And these are contrary to one another; lest whatever you may will, these things you do.

Gal 4:29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
