1 July 30, 2010 The Hidden Things…

2 The Hologram Analogy The Gospel in Genesis Equidistant Letter Sequencing (David’s Genealogy) Love in the Bible Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

3 Hologram Analogy (Fourier Transform) A form of lensless photography Film records interference of light from the laser and light from an object In natural light, result can look like a darkroom mistake (has no desirability) Illuminate film with laser that created it to get a window into a 3D universe…you can look behind the image vs. a picture Cut a piece out and you don’t lose the image – just look around the hole! (will lose resolution) Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

4 Hologram Analogy (Fourier Transform) The information is spread out over the entire bandwidth It is resilient to interference It anticipates hostile jamming You have one in your lap! Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

5 Hologram Analogy The Bible is like a hologram – viewed in natural light, it has “no form nor comeliness;” and “there is no beauty that we should desire” it (Isaiah 53:2) – Collection of old stories – Has no integrity to the natural man “ But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God” (1 st Corinthians 2:14) Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

6 Hologram Analogy Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” Illuminate it with the Light that created it, and you see a picture of Jesus Christ!

7 Hologram Analogy Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” If you were designing a communication system and were trying to minimize noise or avoid hostile jamming, you would spread the message across the available bandwidth (SST) The Bible does the same thing… – Where is the chapter on baptism? – Where is the chapter on salvation? – Key ideas are distributed throughout like a hologram or like a signal system – Tear out a page of the Bible and you have not lost visibility of Yeshua – This is not accidental… “But the word of YHWH was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little;” Isaiah 28:13

8 Hologram Analogy By the Way: When you illuminate the Bible with some spirit other than the Spirit of God, you get fraud and deceit On the hologram, if you illuminate it with a laser of a different frequency, you get a distorted image Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

9 The Gospel in Genesis Adam - Man Seth – is appointed (“For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.” Gen 4:25) Enosh – mortal, frail, or miserable (It was in the days of Enosh that men began to defile the name of the Living God, Genesis 4:26) Kenan – sorrow, dirge, or elegy Mahalalel - Mahalal which means blessed or praise; and El, the name for God – The blessed God Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

10 The Gospel in Genesis Jared - from the verb yaradh, meaning shall come down. Enoch – teaching or commencement (first of four generations of preachers) – the earliest recorded prophecy is from Enoch (Jude 14, 15) Methuselah – his death shall bring. Apparently, Enoch received the prophecy of the Great Flood, and was told that as long as his son was alive, the judgment of the flood would be withheld. The year that Methuselah died, the flood came. Lamech – despairing (the root word is still present in our language today – lament, or lamentation) Noah - derived from nacham, to bring relief or comfort (as Lamech himself explains in Genesis 5:29) Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

11 The Gospel in Genesis Man is appointed mortal sorrow (but the) blessed God shall come down teaching (that) His death shall bring (the) despairing comfort! Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

12 Today's Technology for an Unbelieving World Secret codes have been discovered hidden in the Bible…why are they there? ”It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.” Proverbs 25:2 “I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.” Hosea 12:10 Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

13 Searching Out a Matter

14 David’s Genealogy Genesis 38 – Tamar and JudahZarah and 1 Pharez 2 Hezron, 3 Ram, 4 Amminadab, 5 Nahshon, 6 Salmon, 7 Boaz, 8 Obed, 9 Jesse, 10 David “Now these are the generations of Pharez: Pharez begat Hezron, And Hezron begat Ram, and Ram begat Amminadab, And Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon, And Salmon begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed, And Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David.” Ruth 4:18-22 Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

15 David’s Genealogy Embedded at 49-letter intervals in the Hebrew text of Genesis 38 are the names Boaz, Ruth, Obed, Jesse, and David – in that order! Deuteronomy 23:2 says that a bastard is to be cast out of the congregation for 10 generations The inheritance of David is here prophesied before the days of Samuel! Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

16 "Beloved, let us love one another; for Love is of God, and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God; for God is Love.“ 1 John 4:7-8 Agape – an abstract or spiritual love; a willful love; to be totally given over to Phileo – heart-felt or spontaneous love; an affectionate love Eros – a love shared between a husband and wife Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

17 John 21:15-17 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jona, lovest (agapeo) thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love (phileo) thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jona, lovest (agapeo) thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love (phileo) thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jona, lovest (phileo) thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love (phileo) thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. Greek words for Love Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

18 John 21:15-17 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jona, lovest (agapeo) thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love (phileo) thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jona, lovest (agapeo) thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love (phileo) thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jona, lovest (phileo) thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love (phileo) thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. Greek words for Love Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

19 The Romans developed a short sword-the Machaira, which, with its associated techniques, enabled them to conquer the world. It was only 24 inches long and was sharpened on both edges. But there was a secret to its effectiveness: training and practice. Its uniqueness was a liability unless it was used with the proper techniques, which required extensive practice. Is there a lesson here for us? “And take... the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” Ephesians 6:17 Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

Is there a lesson here for us? “And take... the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” Ephesians 6:17 Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

21 Sword Sharpening! For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 Only the Word of God can discern the thoughts and intents of the heart. Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

22 Sword Sharpening! The sword is the offensive part of our armor But it is two-edged: it is intended to be used defensively as well as offensively In addition to the "pulling down of strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4), it was to be used in defense of the faith (1 Peter 3:15) Psalm 119, the longest psalm in the Bible, is entirely devoted to describing the "Sword of the Spirit"-the Word of God Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

23 Sword Sharpening! There is a Bible study that was given by seven different people, on twelve separate occasions (in just one book of the Bible), that always yielded remarkable results, and yet is rarely given today… Presenting Jesus Christ as the Messiah entirely from the Old Testament!

24 Some Techniques Serious reading and study of your Bible– if you’re serious about your Bible, invest in it! Get a GOOD study Bible, a concordance, a dictionary, etc. Regular radio or mp3 study Sign up for your favorite Bible teacher’s lessons and keep up (remember Romans 10:17) Join a home or church Bible study A group of close friends, open and interactive is one of the best ways to learn Keep a journal! When you come across something you don’t understand, write it down…the Holy Spirit will reveal in His time… The proper use of our "Sword" requires training, and practice, practice, and more practice, if we are to be effective for our Lord! Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

25 Some Techniques Avoid "Bible Bytes," or doctrinal snippets Attempt to embrace "the whole counsel of God,“ Compare Scripture with Scripture "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.“ Isaiah 55:11 Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

26 To cast doubt on the veracity and authenticity of the Word of God ( “Yea, hath God said?” – Genesis 3:15) Even when Satan quotes scripture, he puts a perverse twist to it It is fashionable to demean the Bible today Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

27 How does God authenticate His message? – By writing history before it happens – He alone knows the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10) – We call this "prophecy" – To the Greek mind, prophecy is prediction/fulfillment – To the Hebrew mind, prophecy is pattern Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

28 2 Timothy 3:16 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” 1. Teaching. When we read God's Word, we learn more about Him. The Bible teaches how His grace and His justice intersect, and also how He placed His Son Jesus on this earth as a sacrifice. 2. Reproof. The more we read Scripture, the better we will understand it. The Holy Spirit may then bring to mind areas of our lives that cloud our relationship with God. 3. Correction. God's Spirit wants to do more than simply convict us; He desires to correct sinful areas in our lives. 4. Training in righteousness. Every time we read the Scriptures, God can reveal new truths to us. As we read, pray, and meditate on His Word, we slowly absorb the wisdom and knowledge of God. Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

29 2 Timothy 3:17 “That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” The Bible makes us adequate. No matter what circumstance, trial, or tribulation arises, the truth in scripture will help us face it effectively. The Word equips us for good work. The Lord doesn't save us simply to fill a pew in church; His desire is that we spread His truth to others. Digging into God's Word enables us to proclaim the gospel of Christ with confidence. Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”

30 Unconfessed Sin – He will tempt you to sin, then tell you that you are too bad to deserve saving… Ignorance of God’s Word – IF we aren’t well-grounded in scripture, we can be misled by false teaching Reliance on Emotion – Satan is lord over the culture (2 Cor 4:4), which encourages us to trust in our feelings for guidance The Enemy is already preparing his next attack Mastering “…the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”
