This podcast is designed to give you a basic understanding of God, the Bible, and Christian beliefs. J. Dwight Pentecost said, “There is no higher activity in which the mind may be engaged than the pursuit of the knowledge of God.”

Today’s passage of Scripture is Joshua 1:8-9 which reads: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”

Today’s words from a theologian are from George Gillespie. He said: “Reformation ends not in contemplation, but in action.”

Our first topic for today is titled “God’s Unique Characteristics (Part 2)” from the book, “Understanding Theology in 15 Minutes a Day” by Dr. Daryl Aaron.

Dr. Daryl Aaron continues talking about some of God’s incommunicable attributes…

God’s sovereignty means he rules over and controls his entire creation absolutely and completely. The Bible often uses terms like reign, authority, and dominion to describe this. Read King David’s prayer in 1 Chronicles 29:10-16, where, even though he does not use the word sovereignty, the concept permeates what he says. Sovereignty is why Paul can say that God “works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will”. What God wants to do, God does.

Because he is God, he does not tolerate encroachments upon his sovereignty. We must always be humble before him and gladly willing to submit to him. The story of King Nebuchadnezzar, recorded in Daniel 4, is an illustration. Another application is that we can trust the work of God implicitly. He is in perfect control of all circumstances of our lives, even when those circumstances seem to us to be totally out of control.

Our second topic for today is titled “Theology of the Patriarchal Era (Part 1)” from “The Moody Handbook of Theology” by Dr. Paul Enns.

The kingdom concept becomes more evident in Genesis 12. This chapter marks a change in God’s dealing with humanity. In the early chapters of Genesis God dealt with mankind in general. With the sinfulness of the human race established, God now moves to bless and redeem a fallen humanity by working through a special people. Abraham becomes the central figure through whom God will work. He promises a blessing to Abraham and His posterity that will result in Messiah’s advent with blessing to the Hebrew people and the nations of the world in the millennial kingdom.
