LESSON 5

OLD TESTAMENT HISTORY

JOSHUA - JOB


By Rev. G. Evan Newmyer 

 

INTRODUCTION TO LESSON 5 

History is often boring, there is no other way to put it; however, history can be a mirror of exposure, leading us to victory. History is our Example, not our excuse. It’s obvious, we are not going to cover all the particulars of history, but we are going to find some interesting elements. There are several different methods in which one can study Old Testament History, among those we have picked a method where we can view the victories and failures as they apply to concepts regarding our Christian walk, making them applicable to us as individuals. It would do little good if we studied history as something of the past, yet never applied it to our situations today. When history is left in its time, it becomes dead, but God is the God of the living; therefore, we seek to find ways to gain in Christ, not die in history. Jesus said, the Law, Prophets and Psalms testified of Him, but He didn't say the history testified of Him; therefore, history testifies against, or for the called children of God (Luke 24:44). On the same note we can't discount history, since we find many teachings in the New Testament where Old Testament history was used. As much as the Jew holds to the Torah, they have little to say about their history, except as it relates to David, yet David is a small part of the overall historical picture. There are mysteries in the history as there was in the Law, shall we begin?

LESSON 6

Psalms - Song of Solomon


By Rev.  G. Evan Newmyer

 

INTRODUCTION TO LESSON 6 

David was a "man after God's heart", that doesn't mean David had a heart akin to God's heart, rather it shows David was always seeking the heart of God. One mainstay for David was Praise, yet we find the word "worship" used more times in the Book of Revelation, than in the Psalms. Why? Praise is thanking God for what He has done, is doing and will do. Worship is a request to be in the presence of God, or have the presence of God among us. David wanted the Presence of God, but he knew there remained a wall, as the fall nature standing between God and man, yet he also knew God would move on behalf of those who love Him. Psalms opens many areas, for the most part the Psalms are prophetic in nature; they speak of things the scribe had no knowledge of, while pointing to events yet future.

LESSON 7

MAJOR PROPHETS PART I

Isaiah, Jeremiah and Lamentations

By Rev. G. Evan Newmyer
 

INTRODUCTION TO LESSON 7

The mainstay of the Jewish religion is the Torah, coupled with their knowledge of being God's chosen people on the earth; the mainstay of the Church is the Water, Blood and Spirit, with the knowledge of our Kingdom not being of this earth. The act of Prophecy, or the office of Prophet are found in the offices, manifestation, operations and in the gifts of Grace, but it’s not the case with the Jews. Certain of the Jews were selected by God to be prophets, but Paul said he wished all of us would prophesy. Of course Paul wasn’t referring to the Office of Prophet, since he also said not all were prophets (I Cor 14:5 & 12:29). Paul divided the Office of Prophet from the act of personal prophecy by the Spirit, then coupled personal prophecy with speaking in unknown tongues, then coupled it with “praying and prophecy” in First Corinthians 11:3. In the New Testament the saint has the advantage of the Spirit within, these prophets had the Spirit of God fall on them for the specific task of bringing forth a Word in their time, for their time, and times future.
