We are thankful to be able to share our legacy with you in hopes that the ripples will continue. Pastor Hal Lee taught the Bible from cover to cover – chapter by chapter – verse by verse – comparing scripture with scripture. We want to keep God’s Word going out to all those who have an ear to hear it.
John 20:30-31 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
John only records seven of the miracles Jesus did, but they proved that He is who He claims to be….”God the Son”.
Where to start studying the Bible….for someone new to Bible study or a new Christian, may we recommend the Gospel According to John or the Book of Romans. These books are so essential to the building of faith in the salvation work that Jesus Christ has accomplish.
Hallelujah is the same in any language and it means to call for or command – “Praise Ye The Lord”. We are praising the Lord God almighty for all things because He is worthy. And, we have several things to especially give thanks and praise for that we want to share.
First, we have finished digitizing and uploading the Book of Psalms which contains 150 Psalms. There are 171 Bible studies which took Pastor Hal Lee over 4 years to teach. I decided to save the Book of Psalms for last. One it was the largest study, and two, I didn’t think I was going to enjoy it. I was very wrong, and I strongly recommend that everyone go through these studies.
Second, after 20 years of converting the cassette tapes to a digital format, we have completed all the Bible studies (over 1700 studies) and have them available online for study.
Third, as we have completed our task we are also celebrating the 40th anniversary of Glencoe Baptist Church becoming a church on 04-19-1981 from the previous status of Glencoe Baptist Mission. (See MISC 4:0-0 on the Miscellaneous Studies)
Solomon wrote many songs, as did his father David. However, this song is included in the canons of the Bible because of it’s God inspired message. This is a love song between King Solomon and his bride, the Shulamite girl. It is also an allegory of the love Jesus Christ has for His bride (the Church) and the love that His bride has for Him.
Song 6:3 I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine…
Ecclesiastes looks at life in lots of different ways to find purpose and fulfillment. King Solomon who was very wise and very wealthy conducts many experiments to find what really matters in life. Solomon concludes that without God, there is nothing new under the sun and that only God brings real meaning to our life.
Ecclesiastes 2:11 Then I looked on all the works that my hands had wrought, and on the labour that I had laboured to do: and, behold, all was vanity and vexation of spirit, and there was no profit under the sun.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
The book of Isaiah has a lot of prophecy that goes along with the book of Revelation. Many of the prophecies Isaiah spoke where double referenced, that is, a prophecy near to his day and a prophecy for the end times.
I couldn’t wait to complete all 66 chapters before uploading them. I’ve uploaded the first 40 studies and will be adding more to the web as I get them finished. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
