The 40 Day Fast And Temptation Of Christ

The Bible Unveiled

In the Gospel Of Matthew, we learn of the 40 day fast and temptations of Jesus Christ. Were you aware of the spiritual significance behind these verses and how they apply to us? Let’s begin with Chapter 4:1. “Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

We will begin with the foundation, the only One, the Chief Cornerstone. The Messiah came preaching, “He is the way, the truth and the life. And no man comes to the Father but…

The LORD Is The One True God

The Bible Unveiled

Let us take a moment to consider, if the LORD is the one true God, who are all of the other gods? Are they all of the things that we physically make with our hands? Is it our televisions, computers, and the stuff that many of us “worship?” Or, is it something far more simple, something easier to comprehend? Yet, in a way, it is the hardest thing to believe. The Bible tells us in Hebrews 10:38, “Now the just shall live by faith: but ifany mandraw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.”

What does it mean to draw back from something or someone? Is it a refusal to believe or do what we are seeing or hearing? Could it be being told an idea with truth to back it up, yet, we still refuse to accept it? How about knowing to do something and…

Finding The Lost Sheep In A Fallen World

The Bible Unveiled

I’ve always been fascinated by Jesus’ tale about the lost sheep of Israel. Why wouldn’t the shepherd just take his loss and ignore the one sheep that was most likely already devoured by the wolves? Plus, that shepherd may have jeopardized the lives of the other 99 sheep. Some who understood that narrative relate and were likely to have had a similar reaction to mine.

However, there are a few assumptions that need to be addressed. Foremost, if we disregard the lost sheep and continue to lose one sheep at a time, the sheepfold will soon be empty, and it will leave us wondering what happened. Is this something you’ve heard before? Every single person who doesn’t know the Gospelis a source of concern for us. We may feel constrained by what we can do to entice that individual, but we must take action. That’s the enthusiasm for the truth that Jesus…

Biblical Chastity: Jesus, Abstinence, And The Bible

The Bible Unveiled

In this life, we may come to understand many things about the Truth. Jesus and the Bible teach us many things about abstinence. There is an abundance of Bible verses about purity and chastity. To begin with, we will look at the honest words of the Messiah, “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven.” Let’s take Jesus’ advice, and do just that. What is it about little children? That is a key to understanding how simple it actually is. Trust in the Father, be willing to relearn all that you thought to be true, and believe what the Spirit is telling you. The flesh lusts against the Spirit and vice-versa. Everything that we have ever believed to be true, is mostly a lie. Jesus is the only Truth, and in His Word is eternal life…

In the world today, filled with violence, despair, regret, and remorse, there is only one place for us to turn, the LORD. Many are glued to the news, waiting to see what will become of the unsettling events regarding Ukraine. It now appears that things can only get worse. Many…

What Is The Way? This Is The Way, Walk In It

The Bible Unveiled

What is the Way? In Isaiah 30:21 it tells us, “This is the way, walk ye in it.” We all know what Jesus said. As a Christian, do you know what it means? “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” What would happen if we haven’t understood this? What would happen if we were not walking “in it?”

And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORDisa God of judgment: blessedareall they that wait for him.For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.Andthoughthe Lord give…

Biblical Revelation To The Last And Final Generation

The Bible Unveiled

Are we truly the Final Generation? Are we the last generation? Have you recently looked at the world around you? What does the Bible tell us the last days be like? “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” – 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

We also learn from 2 Peter 3, “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of…

Jesus The Passover Lamb

The Bible Unveiled

Passover not only highlights God’s faithfulness, but it also points to His Son, who was the finalsin offering. For this reason, God commanded the Israelites to keep the Passoverfrom generation to generation. This time of year reminds us of the Lord’s faithfulness to His words.

Passover is noteworthy because it symbolizes the crucifixion of the Savior, the ultimate Passover Lamb who freed us from sin. Paul writes to the disciples, “The Christ, our Passover, has also been sacrificed.” He accomplished the sacrificial system’s requirements by laying down his life. All of the Pesach lambs pointed to Christ as the supremely pure Lamb. Our sins were put on Jesus in the same way that a Jewish person’s sins were placed on a faultless lamb as a sacrifice by the high priest – both instances involving the faultless dying for the sinful. Those who apply the blood of Jesus Christ to their temple’s “doorposts”…

Jesus Rose On The Third Day

The Bible Unveiled

And, on the third day, He rose again. In the Bible are many parables and teachings of Jesus Christ. Today, we will look at Luke 17:20-21. “And when he was demanded of the Pharisees when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold,the kingdom of God is within you.” This is a clue to spiritually understanding the Bible. In the free eBook,Crucified at Golgotha, we covered one prime example of this teaching, which even Paul taught. We will now build on this and see how on the third day, He rose again. Is it possible that when we awake from our sleep and rise from the dead, Jesus rises within us, even, on the third day? “The kingdom of GOD is within you.”

He Is Alive, He Is Risen From The Grave

The Bible Unveiled

He is risen from the grave! Look, He is alive! This excellent news is much more welcome and reassuring than ever before after a year defined by so much agony and suffering. The tale of Passover begins with a subject that has recently affected many of us: death. And dying by crucifixion at Calvary,where Jesus compassionately made penance for our transgressions, allowing us to experience a new and genuinely abundant life in Christ.

Jesus shocked his followers by returning from the dead 3 days following his mortality, defeating death and spreading the great news of salvation to the entire world. The gospel has become the good news of this passion, burial, and resurrection, which we honor and proclaim throughout the world. We have indeed been freed from the bonds of sin, therefore we eagerly and joyfully join Jesus Christ in his mission of creating disciples of all nations.

And the…
