Sweet Sunday Sermon – TYPOLOGICAL METHOD OF BIBLE STUDY

Submitted by Dr. GP

Prior to beginning one’s  adventure in seeking the promises of God in Genesis, we need to appreciate the concept of “types”. First it is noteworthy that the word type does not occur in the Bible.  A Bible type is a divinely purposed illustration of some Old Testament scriptural truth that is used to picture or illustrate a New Testament truth in addition to its literal meaning. The picture used may be an Old Testament :

1] person, as Adam, Solomon, Jonah, Aaron, Moses (Matthew 12:42, 12:40, Hebrews. 3:5-6, 7-11),

2] event, as the crossing of the Red Sea (I Corinthians 10:11), lifting up the brazen serpent

(Numbers 21; John 3:14),

3] thing, or object as the veil of the temple (Hebrews 10:19-20),

4] institution, as the tabernacle, priesthood and the offerings (Hebrews. 9:11-12),

5] ceremony, as the passover (I Corinthians 5:7),

6] historical event, as the offering of Isaac ( Genesis 22),

7] ritual, as the act of circumcision (Genesis 17),

8] place, as Canaan.

A type is something like a symbol with some very important differences. Whereas a symbol usually refers to something either past, present or future, a type is a special sort of prophecy that always refers only to something in the future.  A type is rather like a picture in the Old Testament that is intended to tell us about something which will happen in the New Testament.  It is like a shadow of something not yet seen.

The object or event or person used in the Old Testament as a picture of what is to come is called the “type,” and the object or event or person in the New Testament that is being foretold is called the ” antitype.”  There must be some easily identified similarity between the type and the antitype.  Many feel that the Old Testament type (be it person, event or object) was actually appointed by God to have the particular similarity to the antitype.

Types occur most frequently in the Pentateuch, but are found more sparingly elsewhere. The antitype, or fulfillment of the type, is found generally in the New Testament. For example, in Genesis 2:23, the woman is a type of the Church, the bride of Christ (Ephesians. 5:25-321,2 Corinthians. 11:2-3; cp. John. 3:28-29; Revelation 19:7-8).

A type always bears an unmistakable likeness to the truth which it illustrates. Just as an inventor makes a working model of the machine he has invented as a more definite and accurate depiction of any word description, so does a type picture its antitype. Whereas the type is merely a picture, symbol or example of the real thing, the antitype is the real thing which the type or picture pointed to or prefigured. e.g. Aaron the High Priest in Tabernacle days is a type of Christ our High Priest as is taught in Hebrews 7. Christ is the fulfillment (or antitype of Aaron’s picture).  All the tabernacle furnishings are a type of the Person or work of the Lord Jesus Christ or of great truths connected with Him.

A type is an incident or occurrence that is historically true, but points to another person, incident or occurrence in the future ( the antitype). The type is a shadow of something to come. Often we cannot identify the object that casts the shadow by the shadow alone, but when the object to whom the figure or shadow points all becomes clear  For example, we know that Adam is a type of Christ when he was put to sleep (often used in the Bible as a picture for death) and from-his wounded side the Lord God fashioned from him a woman to be an helpmeet for him. Without the record of the New Testament we could never have known the meaning of that first surgical operation performed in the Garden of Eden, and that it speaks of Christ dying to procure His bride, the Church.

Note that in Scripture (as in other literature) words may convey a truth or idea and yet not express a literal fact. For example, when Christ said “I am the door”, he expressed a fundamental truth but not a fact-,” for Christ was not a door.  However, the use of the word “door” does express the essential truth that He was “the means” of entry to the Father.  In other words, a type is a mode of expressing an idea by the use of words that suggests pictures or images of the idea.

A good example of a type is the incident recorded in Numbers when the children of Israel had been bitten by poisonous snakes and were instructed to look at a bronze serpent on a pole. God had promised that those who did so would be healed.  The entire experience is a type.  It was an actual, historical event that portrayed a New Testament truth.  Here is what Jesus said about this incident in John 3:14-16: “And, as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up; That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

At first it might seem strange that of all things, a serpent should be a type of Christ and His saving work on the cross.  But it makes sense when we read what Paul wrote in his second letter to the Corinthians, which reads “Now, then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us; we beg you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For He hath made Him, who knew no sin, to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians. 5:20-21).

We identify a serpent with sin, and brass or bronze in the Bible speaks of some aspect of God’s judgment.  The bronze serpent, therefore, was a fitting portrayal of the Lord Jesus being made sin for us (bearing God’s wrath to pay the price for our iniquity).  He made it possible for us to be saved by simple looking to Him in faith. That Old Testament incident was therefore an outstanding type of the redemptive work of Christ.

Jonah’s experience in the belly of the fish was also a type.  Jesus said: “For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth”-Matthew 12.40.

Hebrews, Chapter 9, makes reference to the tabernacle, its furnishings, and its sacrifices-replete with types. The sacrificed animals portrayed Christ as He gave His life for us.  The furnishings of the tabernacle and, temple, along with their related rituals, prefigured the Lord Jesus and His redemptive work.  And the veil in the tabernacle and temple separating the holy place from the Holy of Holies was a type of the physical body of Christ. At the very moment, Jesus died “the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom” (Matthew 27:51). Through the Savior’s death in the flesh, a new and living way has been opened into the very presence of God for all who believe in Christ (see Hebrews 10:19, 20).

When interpreting types we must be sure to have a Bible warrant for the supposed type.  Nothing may be insisted upon as a type without explicit New Testament authority. Only things or persons etc. recorded in the Old Testament which are used in the New Testament in a typical or spiritual sense can be used without question”. All “types” not so authenticated must be recognized as having only the authority of analogy or spiritual congruity.  The Old Testament is very difficult to comprehend without the New Testament explanation and vice versa. The “shadow” of the Old Testament demands the substance of the New Testament (Hebrews 10:1).  There cannot be one without the other. We use types in the Old Testament as examples to illustrate New Testament truth.

When interpreting types we must be on guard against the fanciful and overstrained, and be careful not to minimize the historical facts or miss the primary meaning of Old Testament passages. We must not let our imagination run away with us, as the church has suffered enough already from the over spiritualization of the Word of God. We must be careful also not to build doctrines upon types that are not confirmed by the rest of Scripture, and we must bear in mind that no doctrine can be built upon a type. Types, may and do illustrate doctrinal truth beautifully, but they must be kept in their God appointed place to illustrate doctrine only. We should never base a doctrine solely on a type.  The information given by the type may be part of the overall information used to form the doctrine, but there must be more than just the type on which to base the doctrine.  If the type is clearly explained in the New Testament, then, of course, the explanation may be depended upon and used with more confidence in the forming of doctrine.

Often the types had symbolic meaning to the people of the Old Testament themselves.  Their understanding of the symbol often gives some clue as to the New Testament meaning of the type.  What was the moral or spiritual truth that came to the mind of the Old Testament person when he thought of the person or event or object that is later (in the New Testament) identified as a type?  The point of similarity that the type is trying to foreshadow will not be contrary to its symbolism.

Usually types have only one major teaching.  There may be some secondary teachings as well, but there is one main lesson to be learned in each type.  When studying a type, it is easy to look back from our point in time and fill the Old Testament type with meaning that it did not have. Although the antitype will always be clearer than the type, we should not start with the antitype and go back to the type, inserting meanings the type did not have.  If a type is a “shadow” of something to come, it is not right to look back at the shadow, once the real object is seen, and imagine that you can see all the detail of the real object in the shadow.

We must always realize also that the antitype is always a much higher form of truth than the type.  The sacrificial lamb was the type of Christ.  But there is really no comparison between a lamb and Christ.  Even though the lamb was a shadow of His obedient death, Christ is much higher than the lamb.  The types were earthly pictures that were foretelling heavenly, spiritual, wonderful, much higher truths yet to come.

Types must be differentiated from illustrations. Although generous use of the Old Testament ought to be made in making application and in illustrating Scriptural truths, care and caution must at all times be exercised. The Old Testament tabernacle is clearly stated to be a type in Hebrews 8:5.  A student with a fertile imagination however, may easily find many things in the tabernacle that he might want to include in the typology of the tabernacle, whereas there may be only one main teaching to be gleaned from the typology of the tabernacle.  The main teaching probably relates to the fact that the people of God were separated from the presence of God until Christ “tore the veil” and opened up the way to the Holy of Holies. This does not mean we are to ignore other interesting parallels that we see in the tabernacle, but we ought to call these other parallels “illustrations,” rather than call them “types.” Since a type is a God-appointed similarity through which He wants to teach a specific truth, these other similarities that we see may not be part of God’s intended type; although they may still be used as illustrations of truths taught elsewhere.  For instance, you will find that the boards that make up the walls of the tabernacle were held together by a silver rod that went through the boards but was invisible from the outside.  Let us not call that a type, but when teaching about the fact that it is the Holy Spirit who indwells each believer and who binds all believers into the “building” of God (Ephesians 2:21), we can certainly use the rods and boards of the tabernacle as an illustration.  There are some who would feel that the similarity is so striking that it must be a type.  It seems to me that we can refrain from calling it a type and still use it as an illustration.

When interpreting types once we look up all Scripture references that apply, and study the meaning of the name of persons and places mentioned, we will be able to identify types correctly and thus greatly enrich our spiritual life.

    “AND IT CAME TO PASS, IN THE VISION OF THE NIGHT, WHEN THE FULLNESS OF TIME WAS COME, THAT AS I STOOD BEHIND THE CURTAIN MADE OF G STRINGS”…

    FREEDOMS HUSBAND HAS ALWAYS ASKED FREEDOM TO SPARE GP THAT HE IS WORTH SAVING…WHEN I READ THE ABOVE TO HIM THAT WAS GEARED TOWARD FREEDOM, HE JUST STARED…THIS MORNING FREEDOM ASK HIM AFTER WHAT GP WROTE ABOUT HIS WIFE IF HE FEELS SO NOW THAT FREEDOM SHOULD GO EASY ON GP. HIS ANSWER WAS, LET IT PLAY OUT THAT THE EVIL “WILL BE EXPOSED AND BY THEIR FRUIT THEY WILL BE KNOWN!

    GP HAS TURNED AGAINST THE LIGHT WITHIN UNDER THE REINFORCEMENT OF LEGION…

    UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CHILDREN OF THE LIGHT AND THOSE OF THE DARKNESS

    The phrase “CHILDREN OF LIGHT” describes a people in whom the light of the gospel shines brightly. IT DESCRIBES A PEOPLE WHO SEEK THE LIGHT AND ARE DRAWN TO THAT WHICH IS VIRTUOUS, CLEAN, AND PURE.

    AS CHILDREN OF LIGHT, WE HAVE THE OBLIGATION OF MAKING THIS WORLD A HOLIER AND HAPPIER PLACE FOR OUR HAVING LIVED IN IT. HEAVENLY FATHER RELIES ON OUR INFLUENCE TO HELP BRING ALL OF HIS CHILDREN HOME TO HIM. WE SHOULD BECOME AN INFLUENCE FOR GOOD WHEREVER WE GO.

    TO BECOME CHILDREN OF LIGHT MEANS TO REJECT THE POWER OF THE ADVERSARY AND TO CHOOSE DAILY TO FOLLOW THE BETTER WAY.

    MANY OF SATAN’S LIES TEND TO PERPETUATE THEMSELVES. TODAY, SATAN STILL USES PEOPLE TO SPREAD HIS LIES FOR HIM. OFTEN, HE USES CHARISMATIC BUT PERVERSE PEOPLE TO FURTHER HIS FALSEHOODS LIKE LEGION.

    His personal name, “Satan,” means “adversary.” This name indicates Satan’s basic nature: he is the enemy of God, of all God does, and of all God loves.

    He is also called “the devil” in the New Testament. The word “devil” means “FALSE ACCUSER” or “SLANDERER.” Satan plays this role in Job 1–2 when he attacks Job’s character.

    The children of God have always been commanded to seek the truth and to say what is true. The Ten Commandments the Lord gave the children of Israel include: “THOU SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST THY NEIGHBOUR” (EX. 20:16)

    REMEMBER…The Adversary uses people for his purposes but will not support them in the end. It is his purpose to make all of our Father’s children share in his own misery. The influence of evil also stirs people up “to anger against that which is good”. An increasingly WICKED WORLD NOT ONLY PERCEIVES EVIL AS GOOD but also harbors anger and resentment toward righteous people and principles. In doing these wicked things [ADULTERY, INDULGENCE IN PORNOGRAPHY] they [WHO PARTICIPATE] suggest that it is not so bad anymore. Since so much of the world accepts these actions, if we resist them or speak out against them, we will be scoffed at. We will be called prudish, Victorian, puritan, and self-righteous,or as LEGION says “BEDROOM POLICEMAN” .

    BE AWARE GP WHEN LEGION COMES TO YOUR CHURCH PUN SUNDIES MANY CHILDREN OF DARKNESS ALL WITHIN HIM ATTEND! HE IS LEADING YOU INTO CARNAL OBSCURITY. WOULD YOU HAVE SPOKEN THOSE WORDS THAT WAS SAID TO FREEDOM IN YOUR CONGREGATION? YET YOU CHOOSE TO SPEAK IN A VILE AND INAPPROPRIATE MANNER IN THIS FORUM ESPECIALLY TO A WOMAN!

    THE PATH YOU ARE CHOOSING TO FOLLOW IS DIMMING THE LIGHT WITHIN YOU!! PEOPLE WILL LOSE THEIR RESPECT AND REGARD FOR YOU.

    REMEMBER THE GREAT LIGHT WITHIN ITS NOT TOO LATE TO RETURN! GP’S CONSCIENCE WHATEVER GLIMMER IS LEFT WILL BE IGNITED SHOULD HE REPENT AND CHOOSE THE BETTER WAY!

  • Grenada implements mandatory prayer hour at schools
    Dionne Baptiste Created : 3 January 2020
    Caribbean News


    [iStock.com/Jaminwell]

    Grenada’s Ministry of Education has announced plans to implement a mandatory hour of prayer, at all schools at the start of the new school term.

    A statement which was issued on Thursday, said that the hour of prayer will be held during the mid-morning period on January 6, the date set for the reopening of all schools.

    “The theme for the activity is: Teach Me to Pray and to Understand the Power of Prayer. It is expected that all schools, within the State of Grenada, will be engaged in prayer, simultaneously, from 9:30 am to 10:30 am (local time),” the ministry said.

    A Minister of Religion, or a suitably designated person, will be assigned to facilitate the programme at each school.

  • There is a scientific explanation for the parting of the Red Sea in Exodus

    Where, exactly? In the Biblical text, the parting of the “Red Sea” occurs when Moses and the Israelites are encamped by the sea “in front of Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, in front of Baal-zephon.” You might think this place would be easy to locate, given the high level of specificity in the passage above, but there is actually much uncertainty and scholarly debate about what these names might actually refer to today. (It doesn’t help that the Nile Delta has shifted dramatically over time.)
    What atmospheric phenomenon could make this occur? The paper describes a coastal effect called a “wind setdown,” in which strong winds — a little over 60 miles per hour — create a “push” on coastal water which, in one location, creates a storm surge. But in the location from which the wind pushes — in this case, the east — the water moves away. Such occurrences have been observed in the past in Lake Erie, among other places — and, note Drews and Han, also in the Nile Delta itself in the year 1882.

    “Wind setdown happens just as often as storm surge, but hardly ever hurts people, it just blows a harbor completely dry,” says Drews. “So this water sloshes from one side of the body to the other and leaves a dry place.”

    “6Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: 7But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, EVEN THE HIDDEN WISDOM, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9BUT AS IT IS WRITTEN, EYE HATH NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NEITHER HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN, THE THINGS WHICH GOD HATH PREPARED FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM. 10But God HATH “REVEALED” THEM UNTO US BY HIS SPIRIT: FOR THE SPIRIT SEARCHETH ALL THINGS, YEA, THE DEEP THINGS OF GOD. 11For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”

    The same way people erroneously FEEL AND BELIEVE that because they believe on the name of Jesus that they are automatically Saved in His Kingdom and that gives them the Green-light to Continue in their Evil ways disregarding Sincere Repentance of making a Conscious Effort not to Repeat their Past Sins…GOD WILL NOT BE MOCKED, WE WILL BE ANSWERABLE.

  • • Joshua as a type of Christ

    • Joshua is one of the several Old Testament characters who anticipate Christ in their character and deeds.
    • Therefore, we expect to find the book filled with typical teaching about Christ and His work in redemption.
    • The Red Sea, for example, typifies what we are separated from, and is fulfilled in Romans 6 and 7; the Jordan River typifies what we are separated unto, and is fulfilled in Ephesians 1 and 2.
    • What is the evidence that Joshua should be viewed as a prophetic picture of Jesus, the future victor over Satan?
    • Important evidence lies in his very name. The word ”Joshua” means ”Jehovah is Savior,” or ”Jesus.” In Hebrew, “Joshua” is “Yehoshua,” or “Yeshua,” the same name that appears in English as “Jesus.”
    • Joshua means Jehovah Is Salvation.
    • Joshua was given this name by Moses (Num. 13:17). The name Jesus is the Greek form of the Hebrew Joshua. Our Lord Jesus Christ was named the same name as this great Old Testament leader. These two men not only share the same name, but a similar task.
    • Joshua took over after the giver of the law had died, and he led the people into the future that God had planned and designed for them.
    • Joshua is a fitting type of Christ in that he is one of the few major Bible characters with a largely unblemished record.
    • The Bible does not altogether spare him from criticism. Once in his youth, his zeal for God carried him too far, to the point of indiscretion (Num. 11:27-29). Once as a leader, he acted rashly, when he made a treaty with the Canaanites who lived in Gibeon, but his motives were not dishonorable (Josh. 9:3-15).
    • His near perfection contrasts sharply with Moses’ glaring imperfection. As a young prince Moses committed murder. As a forgotten fugitive he resisted God’s call in his life. And as a leader in the twilight of his career he was guilty of conduct that disqualified him from entering the Promised Land.

    • In his virtues that especially qualified him for leadership, Joshua again showed that he mirrored Christ.

    • 2- Joshua is identified as a type of Christ in the New Testament. Of special relevance is the teaching in Hebrews 4. In reviewing Israel’s experience as remembered in Psalm 95, the author treats it as a picture of unresponsiveness to the gospel (v. 2). Many Israelites died in the wilderness because their hearts were hardened against God. Though they saw His works, they did not put their trust in Him and follow His commandments. As a result of unbelief, they failed to enter the land of promise and gain rest from all their wanderings. The author of Hebrews likens their case to the case of those who, through unbelief, reject the gospel and fail to gain rest in salvation (v. 11).
    • Why does the author speak of salvation as rest? It is rest from the attempt to be saved by our own works of righteousness, which are worthless for obtaining forgiveness of sin (v. 10).
    • Salvation is not by works, but by faith, and the result of faith is rest.
    • It follows that the man who led Israel into the rest of Canaan did a work parallel to that accomplished by the man who provides us with rest in salvation.
    • The first man is therefore a picture and forerunner of the second. That is, Joshua is a type of Jesus.
    • Just as Joshua gave Israel rest from all their wanderings by guiding them into the land of blessing, Canaan, so Jesus gives us rest from the futility of self-generated righteousness by guiding us into the life of blessing, the Christian life.
    Under Joshua, believing Israel entered temporarily into rest in the promised land. The Lord Jesus brings His people into a better rest.

    • Moses died; he could not lead the people in. Likewise, the flesh is weak. What Moses could not do, Joshua did. He led them through the Jordan, which speaks of death and resurrection.
    • Joshua led the children of Israel to victory after crossing the Jordan. He was their advocate in time of defeat. It was Joshua who allotted them their portions within the land.
    • All of this beautifully pictures the work of our Lord in death and resurrection, in His present advocacy at the Father’s right hand, and in His provision for believers.

    • Joshua is a fitting type of Christ in that he is one of the few major Bible characters with a largely unblemished record.
    • The Bible does not altogether spare him from criticism. Once in his youth, his zeal for God carried him too far, to the point of indiscretion (Num. 11:27-29).

    • It follows that the man who led Israel into the rest of Canaan did a work parallel to that accomplished by the man who provides us with rest in salvation.
    • 3 JOSHUA WAS FOR A TIME THE SERVANT OF MOSES.
    • He was under Moses, obeyed Moses, and did the will of Moses, as a good servant. He subjected to Moses , who typified the law???
    • Christ, our Lord, took upon Himself the form of a servant and became obedient in all things as our representative (Phil. 2:6-8; Rom. 5:19).
    • Christ was subject to the law (both moral and ceremonial) in order that He might impute unto His people a perfect standing before the law (Heb. 2:16-18; Heb. 4:14-15).
    • Joshua first distinguished himself as the valued subordinate of the leader Moses. Moses regarded Joshua so highly that he entrusted him with weighty responsibility (Ex. 17:8-16). Shortly after leaving Egypt, the straggling multitudes of Israel were attacked by bands of Amalekites.
    • Moses instructed Joshua to organize a force of soldiers and engage the marauders. This he did, and after a hard fight he achieved victory. He was diligent and faithful in carrying out the will of his master.
    • Similarly, Jesus was devoted to the will of His Father and fulfilled it in every detail. He could say that He never did anything but the Father’s will (John 6:38).

    • 4 Joshua thrived on fellowship with God. He took every opportunity to be near God’s presence. He ascended the mount of God with Moses (Ex. 24:13). He lingered as long as possible in the tabernacle (Ex. 33:11).
    • Likewise, Jesus Himself frequently absented Himself from the crowds and sought a place of solitude so that He might pray and commune with the Father.
    • He was willing to take an unpopular stand in line with the will of God. Of the twelve spies who traveled to Canaan and brought back reports to the nation, only he and Caleb recommended that the people obey the command of God to enter the land (Num. 13:17-14:10).
    • The other ten feared the Canaanites and counseled the people of Israel that they could not prevail against them. And the whole assembly of people believed the ten spies and rejected the reports of Joshua and Caleb. It was not easy for these two to stand alone against a whole nation of more than a million adults. Imagine the uproar surrounding them when they remained firm in giving hated advice. Imagine the bloodcurdling noise of a million angry people. The multitude would have stoned them except the glory of the Lord suddenly appeared in the Temple (14:10).
    In his steadfastness for truth, Joshua was like Jesus Himself. For the sake of winning salvation for us, Jesus made Himself despised and rejected (Isa. 53:3). At the nadir of His career, He was forsaken even by His few close disciples (Mark 14:50).


    • 5 JOSHUA WAS THE GOVERNOR AND COMMANDER OF ISRAEL.
    • The subject matter of the book of Joshua is Joshua, by Divine commission, taking upon himself the government of the children of Israel after the death of Moses.
    • Vested with complete power and authority from God, he led Israel to victory and possession of the land.
    • In the whole affair, Joshua is a type of the Lord Jesus.
    • Our Lord Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords. He has all authority in heaven and earth (Matt. 28:18), He has all power over all flesh (John 17:2), and He must reign until He has the full salvation of all of His elect (I Cor. 15:24-28).

    • 6. ALL OF THE GOOD PROMISES TO ISRAEL WERE FULFILLED AT THE HANDS OF JOSHUA.
    • In relation to all that preceded it in God’s program, Joshua is the book of fulfilled promise. For centuries, God had predicted that Israel would possess the land of Canaan. He revealed the nation’s future occupation of the land to Abraham (Gen. 13:14-18; 15:13-21), Isaac (Gen. 26:1-5), Jacob (Gen. 35:10-12), and Moses (Ex. 3:7-10).
    • In Joshua we have the record of how God brought this ancient promise to pass.
    • Similarly, all the gracious promises of God to His elect are fulfilled in the by the Lord Jesus.
    • Rom. 4:21 – What He has promised, He is able to perform.
    Phil. 3:21 – He is able to subdue all things unto Himself.
    II Tim. 1:12 – He is able to keep that which we have committed to Him.
    Heb. 7:25 – He is able to save to the uttermost them that come to God by Him.
    Jude 24 – He is able to keep us from falling and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory.


    • 7. JOSHUA WAS FAITHFUL AND MERCIFUL TO SAVE RAHAB, THE HARLOT, and her house that had the red cord hung out the window.
    • So Christ is merciful and faithful to save all sinners who express faith in His blood.

  • Types of Jesus in the Bible
    It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. The entire Bible speaks about Jesus. In the Old Testament it is by types, shadows, pictures and prophecies of Jesus. There are hundreds, even thousands of years between the types, shadows, pictures and prophecies of Jesus and when Jesus lived his life on earth. Not only do these show how wonderfully and divinely inspired the Bible is, the pictures of Jesus in the Old Testament help show us more about this wonderful person.

His idea of Teaching Others is a Façade, he Deliberately Tries to Shame others to Pull them Down because he is already beneath them.

    He uses the Lords name in vain not understanding that that name resides in each of us and witnesses all of our Sins…His Conscience is Operating on Low Band Width by his Choices to be so Abusive to others including Women it will eventually Cease to Operate if he continues of his Path. At that time, he will be Left Entirely to his Miserable Self!!

    HIS ULTIMATE GOAL IS THE CREATION OF VICTIMS…

    HE CONTINUES TO DEMONSTRATE EXTREME NARCISSISM AND GRANDIOSE…BELIEVING HE IS BETTER THAN OTHERS ARE IN HIS ENTIRE EGOTISTICAL CONTEMPTUOUS ARRAY.

  • Boaz foreshadows Jesus our kinsman-redeemer, who has also raised up a seed as promised in the Abrahamic covenant. Just as Boaz was an effectual redeemer, and got Ruth, the object of his love, The Son of God, our effectual Redeemer, shall get the people of his choice. Today, there are a people in this world, being chosen of God in eternal election and redeemed by special redemption, who must and shall be saved by God’s omnipotent grace (Isaiah 53:10-12; Psalm 22:30-31; Ruth 4:5-6).

    Boaz as a type of Christ as a kinsman-redeemer, preserved Elimelech’s land and family line. In this capacity he foreshadowed the great Redeemer of sinners, the Lord Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul unites the elements of kinsman and Redeemer in Galatians 4:4-5. Because the Son of God partook of genuine humanity and thereby became our kinsman, He is qualified to deliver us. He became one with us so that we children of Satan (c.f John 8:44; 1John 3:10) might become the sons and daughters of the living God!

    Boaz was a complete redeemer. When Ruth got Boaz; she got him and everything in him. Similarly, when Christ redeems us-God’s elect, the Bible teaches emphatically in Colossians 2:10 that “Ye (we) are complete in him.”

    It was only when a man possessed all of the qualities described above that he fulfilled all of the requirements of the Kinsman Redeemer and was permitted to perform this task. Jesus alone met all of the qualifications of the Kinsman Redeemer. That’s why we sing “ There was no other good enough to pay the price of sin, He only could unlock the gates of heaven and let us in.”

    Just as Boaz was a mighty redeemer, our blessed Savior is mighty indeed. His name is “The Mighty God!” Just as Boaz was a wealthy redeemer, and a wealthy landowner in Bethlehem, the city of Jesus’ birth, Christ is filled with infinite, inexhaustible treasures of grace for sinners.
    Just as Boaz was a willing redeemer, Christ willingly laid down his life for us. Just as Boaz was a redeemer as the law required, so too, is our Lord Jesus Christ.
