The Biblebase Briefing

Somethings go through my mind, straight through. And some linger a while and give me cause to think and reflect and sometimes readjust my thinking. Here is a miscellany of items that made me take a second look.

In effect, it is simply a personal scrapbook of things home-grown and collected on my rambles. I often think 'I must share that with…' and almost as often I forget! Now you can look over my shoulder and see the things that have caused me to pause in my rambles and think again.

The engine that drives this a called FlipBook and I as read I check certain things of interest and they are collected automatically in this Biblebase Briefings magazine. See if any of them interest you.

You will find them at Biblebase Briefing and let me know what you think about them.

it's in the post

Entries to this blog tend to be a bit infrequent but I thought this was worth sharing. I have sent the first few chapters and synopses of my book off to a prospective publisher... now we wait.

I started it quite some time ago but last year's health issues added a large gap in my efforts.

It is called 'The Better Covenant' and subtitled... "unpacking the treasures of the New Covenant". It has gone to a company which specialised in Christian Book and now there is likely to be a long wait before they get around to reading it.

I reread it over the past few days and was blessed by it! Cast you bread upon the waters... I really do feel passionately about this topic and feel a strong burden to encourage others to consider this life into which God has brought us.

Here is the blurge from the back cover...

The final hours of Christ’s pre-Calvary life focused on the themes of a new Passover, a new Kingdom and a New Covenant. This New Covenant stands in stark distinction to the Covenant enjoyed by the saints of the Old Testament. It is said to be ‘new’ and ‘better’ and ‘more glorious’ but for many its uniqueness has become uncertain. It is often described in contrast to the older Covenant; the writer to the Hebrews does this, as does Paul, as did Christ. Perhaps its determining feature can be expressed in the contrast implied in the statement; …but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:17 NKJV

The conscious reception of the indwelling Spirit is the point of entrance into this New Covenant. This receiving of the Spirit effects the work of regeneration and fulfils the promises of the New Covenant made by Jeremiah and Ezekiel in which they see a new and different covenant in which old things would pass away and all things become new. This powerful regeneration/baptism in Spirit takes a man out of Adam and puts him into Christ thereby creating a ‘new man’ with new powers and instincts.

This book explores the salvation history of the Bible, examining the background to the promise of the New Covenant as introduced in the Old Testament and the fulfilment of that promise in the New Testament. It traces Paul’s exciting discovery that the New Covenant contained a ‘secret’ which opened God’s kingdom to all races and conditions of humankind. It examines the implications of this better covenant for a true understanding and practise of daily living in the New Covenant.

I'll keep you in touch with events as they happen.
