An examination of Jeremiah 31 that contains the climactic promise of the New Covenant to all the clans (12 Tribes of Judah) and while Israel is set aside during the Church Age until the rapture, the tribulation and the millennial kingdom, Christians are the initial beneficiaries of that New Covenant through faith in Christ.
An examination of the beginning of the "book of the consolation" that gives encouragement to exiled Judah in Babylon that God will not only restore the people to the Promised Land but will one day fully restore their relationship with God during the Millennial reign of the Messiah at the end of the tribulation.

THANK YOU FOR LISTENING
This week we look at the second part of the verse, that we are transferred to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. We highlight the contrast between the two states in the verse. We look at the parallels to Joseph being move from the dungeon to the palace an example of such a transfer. We finish with a look at the definition of redemption and then for the last part of the verse we compare the forgiveness of sin with a poem by John Newton, called In Evil Long I Took Delight.
This week we finished looking at the amazing work of God in rescuing us from the domain of darkness. The hymn of Charley Wesley "And Can It Be That I Should Gain?" highlights this particular Biblical truth. Nothing short of complete rescue is necessary. In the famous hymn Wesley finds himself long imprisoned in a dungeon of darkness, unconscious and bound in sin. His release from this bondage is nothing short of a personal testimony to the truth contained in this Col 1:13 verse. We look at verses that reveal this truth of the dark bondage of the heart, and will of the unregenerate soul, and the great release of the regenerated from the "domain of darkness".
Why would we want to spend so much time in Revelation 19 and 20?
The way we view these scriptures about the end times, tell us something about how deeply we believe that God is able to communicate what He wants us to know about Himself and His sovereignty over the creation. Do we have the faith to believe that He has said what He means for us to know, in a way that we can have a sure confidence and hope, or not?
Will we declare, on the one hand, that the prophecies concerning Jesus' first coming were clear and identifiable, but not the ones about His second coming? Will we change our hermeneutic (method of interpretation), sometimes in the middle of a verse that talks about His first and second comings, just because we think God somehow changed His method of communication from one phrase to the next?
God has made His promises abundantly clear and amazingly consistent in both the Old and New Testaments.
One of the most important questions we can ask ourselves is "are we ready?" The return of Jesus Christ is an absolute reality that no one can escape. On that day, are you sure you will stand in victory?
Summation: The Lord who is there is our Lord Jesus Christ, and the "there" is reigning on this earth, on the throne of David, as both the root and branch of David. This verse challenges us to look more closely at these chapters at the end of Ezekiel, (40-48) as they can be problematic as we seek to understand them.

The word in Hebrew for "return" is teshuva. During the period most people call "The High Holy Days", ancient Jews called this period of Teshuva or just simply - Teshuva. During the Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippor, and Succoth, the Jewish people are called to return to the LORD and ultimately to the Land (Eretz Israel). But not all Israel will experience this great ultimate event. Only a remnant will return because The LORD is not doing for Israel, He is doing it to "vindicate the holiness of (His) great name which has been profaned among the gentiles." (Ezek 36.23) In today's lesson we look at the import of Teshuva and the remnant that will be saved.
