• New Hope for God’s People Devotional

    Daniel 7:1-12

    We will look at the specifics of Daniel 7 in more detail tomorrow. Today, we note that to know and understand Scripture according to the original meaning of its authors is the only way we can rightly apply the Bible in a way that pleases God. God grants us the right to private interpretation, but as Dr. R.C. Sproul has often said, He does not grant us the right to misinterpretation. Insofar as we are able, let us be careful to understand Scripture according to its original intent. View Resource

  • The Heavenly Mount Zion Devotional

    Revelation 21

    We must always read the Old Testament in light of the new covenant revelation in Christ Jesus, the final Word of God to His people (Heb. 1:1–4). The nations have begun to go up to the temple of the Lord in going to Christ, God’s true temple (John 2:18–22), and this will be consummated when the heavenly Jerusalem descends to earth. Then, all of the redeemed will fulfill the purpose for which God made us as we worship Him forever. View Resource

  • Typology Versus Allegory Devotional

    Galatians 4:25–27

    John Calvin comments, “The true meaning of Scripture is the natural and obvious meaning; and let us embrace and abide by it resolutely. Let us not only neglect as doubtful, but boldly set aside as deadly corruptions, those pretended expositions, which lead us astray from the natural meaning.” Are you committed to the study of Scripture in its original context? What tools do you use or need to acquire to help you understand the plain truths of the Bible? View Resource

  • The Galatian Problem Devotional

    Galatians 1:6–7

    Martin Luther’s commentary on Galatians states, “Since Paul by his own experience teaches us that congregations which are won by great labor are easily and soon overthrown, we ought with singular care to watch against the devil ranging everywhere, lest he come while we sleep, and sow tares among the wheat.” False teachers are perennially trying to seduce God’s people with error. Let us seek to be well-grounded in Scripture that we may not be deceived. View Resource
