PORTICO

PORTICO

1 Chronicles 28:10 “Consider now, for the Lord has chosen you* to build a temple as a sanctuary. Be strong and do the work.” *God chose Solomon to build His temple by appointing him through Israel’s King David because He knew Solomon’s heart. See v.9

1 Chronicles 28:11 “Then David gave his son Solomon the plans for the portico of the temple, its buildings, its storerooms, its upper parts, its inner rooms and the place of atonement.”

The Scene: A portico–covered enclosure with columns. Also shown are doors to the store rooms to the rear of the portico. The columns represent the indicated Holy Scriptures that tell the story of Jesus the Christ of Nazareth, the Son of God, Savior of the world.

The storage areas held the scrolls, the Word of God, delivered to the people through Moses (the Torah) and other items used in the temple.

John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.”

When the temple for Father God was to be built, the wall and the portico with columns was the first part to be built to store the Torah. And the colonnade itself provided protection from the weather, a refuge.

John 10:22-23 “Then came the Feast of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was in the temple area walking in Solomon’s Colonnade. “

7-43 TEMPLE PORTICO

JESUS IS ALL LIGHT

1 Thessalonians 5:5 “You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.”

The Scene: An Oscilloscope pictureРcomputer generated color spectrum bouncing up and down to music; a representation of infinity.

Jesus is the basis of all light. All color comes from the white light, which is Jesus the Christ of Nazareth (Yeshua Hamashiach). He is the beginning (Alpha) and the end (Omega). He is everything. He is all in all.

Genesis 1:5-8 ” And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day”, and there was evening, and there was morning– the first day.”

We, the people of God, have been filled with the light of our Savior Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 5:8 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.”

7-42 LIGHT

THE SOURCE

John 8:12 “When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, ‘ I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’ “

The Scene: A lighthouse with its bright light piecing the darkness. People in their boats are seen coming toward the light and into the light source. Some of the people have turned away from the light and returned to the darkness while some have hit the rocky, shallow water and are sunk/lost forever.

John 1:5 “The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.”

God’s people are those born-again Christians called by the Holy Spirit to stay in the light (His Word).

Ephesians 5:8-10 “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of light consists of all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.”

7-41 LIGHT OF THE WORD

RELEASED FROM DEATH

Psalm 118:17 ” I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done. The Lord has chastened me severely, but he has not given me over to death.”

The Scene: Satan, the grim reaper, awaiting an opportunity to take down King David ahead of God’s perfect timing. But instead it is he himself who is taken down by the words of King David, “I will not die.”

Christians, born-again, filled with the Holy Spirit are released from the spirit of death when they die.

1 Corinthians 15:22, 25-26 “For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.”

1 Corinthians 15:55-57 ” ‘Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?’ The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”

We have the victory over death, the spirit of death must let us go, for Jesus Christ, our Messiah and Lord, has given His all for us, so that we may be saved to eternal life in heaven with Him.

7-40 VICTORY OVER DEATH

THE POWER OF GOD

POWER OF GOD

Psalm 147:5 “Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.”

The Scene: Three atomic bomb explosions–symbolic of the power of the Holy Trinity; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Psalm 65:6-7 ” Who formed the mountains by your power, having armed yourself with strength, who stilled the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, and the turmoil of the nations.”

Matthew 8:27 ” The men were amazed and asked, ‘What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!’ “

Mark11:20-21 “In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. Peter remembered and said to Jesus, ‘Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered.’ “

Our God has the power to do anything, including: healing the spirit, mind and body of the sick, raising the dead, forgiving and erasing our sins!

Mark 11:24 “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

John 15:7 “If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.”

7-39 GOD’S POWER

TRUTH-ROCK SOLID

TRUTH-ROCK SOLID

John 18:38 ” ‘What is truth?” Pilate asked. With this he went out again to the Jews and said, ‘I find no basis for a charge against him.’ ”

The Scene: Granite rock monolith of T-R-U-T-H representing God’s Word (never changing*). Funny Putty can and gelatin dish, representing relative truth of the world. *Cannot be refuted or proven wrong–once true, always true, is not changed generation to generation by discoveries or men’s ideas.

To the world truth is what ever it takes to get them what they want at the time, ever changing.

John 14:6 “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ “

God’s Word of Truth is from one source; Jesus is the Word. His Word never changes and will never end.

John 16:13 ” But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears and he will tell you what is yet to come.”

On the other hand, the world’s truth is like molding putty or gelatin into various shaped dishes. Man’s wisdom is molded by men’s thoughts, philosophy, opinions, false information, culture, social influences, Satan’s lies.

1 Corinthians 2:14 -15 “The man without the Spirit does not accept the the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man’s judgment.”

7-32 TRUTH-GOD’S WORD

FOLLOW THE SON

FOLLOW THE SON

Psalm 84:11-12 “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. O Lord Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you.”

The Scene: A red ball sun on the horizon with an ocean going ship, heading west, toward the setting sun. The ship tacked back and forth, but always generally following the sun.

The Holy Spirit quickened, that the sailing ship represents the Christian’s journey through life, going this way and that way, but staying focused on the son, Jesus Christ. He lights the way–we are to follow. This is His plan.

Revelation 22:5 “There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.”

7-37 GOD IS LIGHT

SEARED CONSCIENCE

SEARED CONSCIENCE

1 Timothy 4:1-2 “The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.”

The Scene: Hot poker branding iron. The brand is of the pentagram, a symbol of Satan in current usage, searing the heart of the unsaved.

But for God’s children He has made their heart to be right in His own eyes, through His only son Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

We who are born-again are filled with His Holy Spirit. Philippians 1:9-10 “And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ– to the glory and praise of God.”

7-34 CONSCIENCE

FAN THE FLAME

FAN THE FLAME

2 Timothy 1:6-7 “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.* For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. “

* Laying on of hands: the act, given to those who are seeking the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and all His gifts for us, which includes the fruit of the Spirit. (See Galatians 5:22)

The Scene: A person who has already received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, laying hands on someone who wants to receive the same baptism in the Holy Spirit. The flames (tongues of fire) represent the Holy Spirit entering the candidate.

Luke 11:13 If you then, though you are evil,* know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” *sinners—for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (See Romans 3:23).

The Five Fold Ministry— the gifts of being apostles, prophets, teachers, workers of miracles, gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration and those speaking in tongues: these make up the body of Christ and His church. (See 1 Corinthians 12:27-31)

Acts 2:1-4 When the day of Pentecost* came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit entered them.” * 50 days after Jesus’ bodily ascension into heaven.

7-35 THE TONGUE

FREEDOM IN THE WORD

FREEDOM IN THE WORD

Galatians 5:1, 13 “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.”

The Scene: A view from above; a representation of God’s people who are playing, enjoying their freedom. A very large ocean-going power boat, making fast turns, zig-zagging along. Above the speed boat is a jet flying close to the water, with its powerful engine exhaust causing the water to spray, forming a rooster tail wake beside the boat.

Isaiah 61:1 “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners.”

The blue waters represent the living water (the Word of God). We can have complete freedom when we live according to the Word (the Holy Bible) and are not restricted by the legalist, who wants us to focus on just one part, and who may twist completely the Word, which would bring death, not life. Then we are truly freed from fear of death and can look forward to life in heaven with our Lord Jesus and our heavenly rewards, which are gained through our faith in Him and our obedience.
