    Two Zions
    Brother Mike speaks of two Zions-the earthly Zion (Jerusalem) and the heavenly Zion (New Jerusalem). Zionism as an organized movement is generally considered to have been founded by Theodor Herzl in 1897. However, the history of Zionism began earlier and is related to Judaism and Jewish history. In 1948, the United Nations re-established Israel as a nation. There is no other example in human history of a "nation" being reestablished after such a long period of existence as a diaspora. Brother Mike points out highlights of the history, but makes a point that we are not to look to the earthly Zion. We are to keep our eyes fixed on the heavenly Zion to which Jesus calls us.

    Grasping the Cross (Part 4)
    Hebrews 12: 1-5, 7, 11 Brother Mike continues to explain what it means to “grasp the Cross”. He speaks of the Theology of Glory and the Theology of the Cross and how we need a balance of these in our lives. The Theology of the Rose-you have to get through the thorns in life to get the beauty of the flower-is how we find this balance.

    Grasping the Cross (Part 3)
    Hebrews 12: 1-4, 10-11 Running the race that God set before you well is contingent on how well you pick up the cross God has given you. We have to keep in mind the finish line. As we endure our conscience, shame, hostility, and temptations, we must not lose hope. Even the most beautiful of flowers, the rose, has its thorns. We may deal with the thorns in our life here on earth, but we will have the Rose of Sharon in Heaven.

    Grasping the Cross (Part 2)
    Hebrews 12:1-4 To be truly able to grasp the cross, there are 4 areas we must endure. As Christians, we must endure shame, hostility, temptation, and our conscience. Christ also had to endure shame, hostility, and temptation but he never had to endure conscience because he never sinned. Today we cover enduring conscience and shame.

    Hebrews 12:1-4 The theology of the cross often repels people, but for those transformed by the cross-it attracts them.

    Second Wind
    Hebrews 11:35-12:1a Many of the prophets of the Old Testament were destitute, persecuted, and mistreated because of their faith. They endured because they believed in the promise of a Savior. They didn’t focus on what they saw, they focused on what they heard. We must also persevere and do God’s will. Then we will receive all that He has promised (Hebrews 10: 36-37).

    A Church Service Gone Bad
    Jesus went to the synagogue in Nazareth on the Sabbath and read from the scroll of the book of Isaiah. The verses he read were from Isaiah 61:1-2. When he finished, he explained how Elijah had been sent to the Gentiles during the drought because the Hebrews had turned their back on him. Jesus used that scripture to show that he would bring salvation to the Gentiles, because he knew that the Jews would not accept him. This greatly angered those who were in the synagogue and they attempted to kill him. (Tablet video unavailable due to technical problems)

    Elijah: A Polemic Worth Considering
    God is going to establish a truth through his people, Israel. He is going to smash the opposing view and establish that He is the only God and that Baal is just a figment of their imagination, a fake god.
