A Bride for Christ Part 2b

June 2, 2023

At the present time we’re going through Genesis, and we aim to complete chapter 24 today.  Pastor Jeff Johnson will take one final look at the story of Isaac and Rebekah.  You can’t help but see the entire Godhead in this love story.  And today we’ll zero in on the Holy Spirit and how He so masterfully works in our lives.  The question is, will we resist Him or cooperate? 

References: Genesis 24:29-67

We’re on an incredible journey through Genesis, with our pastor and teacher Jeff Johnson.  As we again open chapter 24 on the surface it appears as just an incredible love story on how Isaac and Rebekah would meet and eventually marry.  But dig a little deeper and you’ll see a brilliant picture of the entire Godhead, and how the Lord works in our lives.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  And today on Sound Doctrine we will bring you one of the most beautiful pictures in all the Old Testament.  Pastor Jeff Johnson will be speaking about the bride that is found and brought to Isaac.  But it also serves as a picture of the wonderful relationship between the church, the bride, and Jesus the bridegroom.

Do you enjoy a good love story?  We've got one for you today!  It’s one of the all-time greats, and it’s found in Genesis 24.  If you’re married, how did you and your spouse meet? Perhaps a good friend set you up on a date, maybe you met at church, or ran into each other at some sort of gathering?  Consider how the Lord brought Isaac and Rebecca together.  It’s nothing short of a miracle.

On today’s broadcast we’ll hear about a servant who was sent by his master to find a bride for his son. Pastor Jeff Johnson doesn’t want us to miss how this is a beautiful picture of the church and her relationship to Jesus.  It really is spectacular.  We’re in Genesis chapter twenty-four here in part one of “A Bride for Christ.”

If you want a good picture of how God works with us stay tuned and join us in Daniel chapter nine, today on Sound Doctrine.  Pastor Jeff Johnson has made a few observations that can really serve to help us as we pray to God.  You’ll notice conviction, confession, cleansing, consecration and finally commission in this portion of the  prayer.

We’re midway through a study in Genesis, and today we camp out in chapter 23.  In this passage, Abraham’s wife Sarah has died and was then buried.  And pastor Jeff wants to take some time out to show us the right outlook when a fellow believer dies.  Maybe that’s something you’ve been dealing with recently?  Allow this study to encourage you, as pastor Jeff helps us adopt a heavenly mindset.

When someone we love and adore dies, it’s heart-wrenching.  We grieve and the hurt is hard to put into words.  And you may even wonder how you can go on!  Today on Sound Doctrine we’re going to talk about the reality of death, and how to deal with it as God would have us.  In Genesis chapter 23 Sarah dies and is buried.  How Abraham responds to this gives us some clues on how to cope and where our hope is found.

A good portion of the Bible contains prophecy, and much of it has already been fulfilled.  Solid proof of the Bible’s inspiration, inerrancy and authority.  Today on Sound Doctrine we look back to Genesis chapter 22 where we find some incredible prophecy about Jesus and what He came to accomplish.  Of course, this would be fulfilled at the cross.

We invite you to join us on an incredible journey through the Scriptures.  Right now we happen to be in Genesis chapter 22.  The Bible is full of typology.  And as you study the story of Abraham sacrificing Isaac, you can’t help but see Jesus, the Father, Holy Spirit and the church.  
May 23, 2023
We’ll focus our time and attention on Genesis chapter 22 today, a chapter that speaks of Jesus and what He came to do.  But pastor Jeff Johnson also sees some great instruction here that will help us handle the trials of life.  Maybe you’re in the midst of one even as we speak?  Let’s be encouraged by the Sound Doctrine contained in Genesis.
