In our day, some parts of the church are experiencing a resurgence of interest in the book of the Song of Solomon. Instead of bearing the stigma of an obscure book about love and marriage from the Old Testament, the book is increasingly being understood as an allegory between Jesus and His bride. Though this was probably not the primary reason for its inclusion in the canon of Scripture, the wisdom of the Holy Spirit is evidently seen in its resurgence as it undergirds the New Testament truths of Jesus as a bridegroom and His body as His bride (Matthew 9:15, Ephesians 5:32, Revelation 19...

I am becoming more and more aware of how much "Christian-ese" fills our conversation, song, and writing. We have held phrases in our rhetoric for so long that they have lost virtually all of their meaning - sometimes in writing, but especially when spoken or sung. Modern Christian conversation is becoming at best only peppered with phrases from the Bible rather than being saturated with the precious words of Jesus, the wisdom of the psalmists, or the warnings of the prophets. When Biblical phrases are used, they are often oriented around man and his need, rather than God and His glory...

Growing in the knowledge of God and in passion for Jesus is not mysterious, though for many believers the process remains vague, ambiguous, and ethereal. If the full disclosure of God is seen in the person of Jesus, the most natural way to grow in the knowledge of God is to look at the life of Jesus.

The four gospels give every Christian entrance into His life, which is the foundational substance of our relationship and intimacy with Him. Jesus is not an object to acquire information about, but rather a Person to be known.

In this teaching, Josh discusses the necessity...

The same question Jesus asked His disciples 2,000 years ago is the same one He is posing to us today. "Who do you say that I am?" Answering this question correctly is essential for the believer, especially because of the hour that we live in.

In this teaching, Josh highlights the identity of Jesus and His equality with God as the primary issue of deception at the end of the age. Currently we are witnessing four general negative trends today that must be viewed as nothing short of a full-blown crisis in light of the coming delusion spoken about in the Scriptures.

Genesis 2 says that God set Adam in the Garden in Eden to "tend and keep" it. Contrary to our modern assumption, God created Adam with much more than farming in mind. Adam's primary created purpose was that of a priest - ministering to God in a sanctuary.

Rightly understanding Adam as the model for all of humanity's created purpose as priests brings clarity to the reason for the increase of night and day prayer across the globe today.

From the assimilation of God into our worldview to the purpose of our worship, Josh develops and traces this biblical foundation established...

In scripture, the only trait Jesus proclaimed about Himself was that He was humble (Matthew 11:29). The very first thing John the Baptist proclaims about Jesus is that He is a "Lamb", a servant who would die for the sins of the world.

The incarnation of Jesus openly declares to us all that God is a humble servant. Even in judgment at the end of the age, He will be acting as a servant.

Looking at the humility of the Godhead produces a longing to be like Him and empowers us to walk in the same manner. In these two sessions of notes, Stuart Greaves develops these truths...
