Old Testament Study – Part 10. There is a great need that you have. The need is to know Christ. E .W. Bullinger wrote a pamphlet called the “Christians Greatest Need” and it tells the very important aspect of knowing Him. The word of God is given to us in a complete form and we are encouraged to study to be approved unto God. The bible contains basic instructions before leaving earth. It says in Romans 8:26-27 (KJV) “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”. Also in Ephesians 1:17 (KJV) “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:” Paul says in Philippians 3:10 (KJV) “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death”. Paul was 30 years down the road from the Damascus event in his Christian walk when he wrote that in Philippians so don’t think you know Christ and can’t get to know him better. You have to keep working at it. The old testament study is an attempt to get you into the scriptures so you may know him better. The whole bible is the story of the redemption of man through Christ. Abraham is the central figure in Genesis. Adam, Noah, and Moses would be on the good guy list. What about the bad people in scripture? Cain gave us murder, Nimrod gave us world religion. Christ is presented in every book in the Old Testament. In Genesis we find he is in the seed of the woman. The lesson on April 23, 2006 provides a recap of the Old Testament study and continues with the series with the end of King David. 1 & 2 Kings covers David and Solomon. David was a man after God’s own heart. We learn that David killed Goliath because he said the battle wasn’t his , but God’s. If we only had that attitude in our walk.
