Christ in the Old Testament- Isaiah 2

Christ in the Old Testament

Pastor Kachelmeier is the guest on Issues, Etc. talking about Christ in Isaiah chapter 2. The Prophet Isaiah declares,“He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide disputes for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.” (Isaiah 2:4, ESV) This is not the accomplishment of earthly kingdoms bringing world peace; rather, it is the action of God bringing His Eternal Kingdom of Peace. All kingdoms of the earth shall come to an end and only God’s Kingdom will endure forever. The Christ will come to be the only one exalted. “For out of Zion shall go the Torah, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem” (Isaiah 2:3). After the Resurrection, Christ sent out the Apostles to the nations from Jerusalem with the Torah, that is, His instruction. This message went to the Jews first and then to the Gentiles second. The invitation goes out, “O house of Jacob, come, let us walk in the light of the Lord.” (Isaiah 2:5, ESV)  As the Apostle John says, “…if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7)   (click here to listen to the interview on Issues, Etc.)

The Revealed Mystery of the Trinity in the Old and New Testaments- Part 3

Rev. Brian L. Kachelmeier

In the Old Testament, God has revealed Himself as the Savior when He lead the people of Israel out of Egypt and rescued them from all their enemies. God declares, “I, I am the Yahweh, and besides me there is no savior.” (Isaiah 43:11)  In the New Testament, God has revealed Himself as the Savior when He took upon flesh, was crucified and resurrected, in order to rescue us from our enemies of the devil, sin, and death. There is only One Savior. In the New Testament, we are taught to confess that Jesus is the only Savior. We confess that Jesus is Yahweh.

Christ in the Old Testament- Malachi 3

Christ in the Old TestamentPastor Kachelmeier is the guest on Issues, Etc. talking about Christ in Malachi chapter 3. The Prophet Malachi gives to us this promise, “a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the Lord and esteemed his name.” (Malachi 3:16, ESV) How does one become enrolled in the book of remembrance? The LORD will act by sending the Baptizer, who is referred to as His messenger to prepare His way. Then the Christ will come to His temple to purify. Christ is called the Messenger of the Covenant. Our names are written in the book of life with His blood of the New Covenant. He is the Covenant of God incarnate.   (click here to listen to the interview on Issues, Etc.)

The Revealed Mystery of the Trinity in the Old and New Testaments- Part 2

Rev. Brian L. Kachelmeier

There is only One True God.  Through natural knowledge we can discern that there is a God who created all things.  Yet, it is only through revealed knowledge that we can know who this One True God is.  The prophets and apostles sent by God have revealed the One True God to the nations.  Apart from this teaching, an individual is left without God. In this lecture we discuss the prophetic office that Moses and Isaiah were placed into in order to reveal the Triune God to the sons of Israel. In addition, we will discuss the apostolic office that Paul was placed into in order to reveal the Triune God to the Gentiles. In particular, we will look at Exodus 3, Deuteronomy 7, Isaiah 63, Genesis 15, Ephesians 2, and Titus 3.

Christ in the Old Testament- Malachi 4

Christ in the Old TestamentPastor Kachelmeier on Issues, Etc. talking about Christ in Malachi chapter 4. The Prophet Malachi gives to us this promise, “…for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness shall rise with healing in His wings..” (Malachi 4:2) But before He comes, the Baptizer, who is referred to as Elijah, will prepare His way. Zechariah, the father of John the Baptizer rejoices that his son will be the Prophet of the Most High who will be sent “to give knowledge of salvation to his people in the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, whereby the Sunrise shall visit us from on high” (Luke 1:77–78)   (click here to listen to the interview on Issues, Etc.)

The Revealed Mystery of the Trinity in the Old and New Testaments- Part 1

Rev. Brian L. Kachelmeier

We believe, teach, and confess that there is only One True God.  The divine essence is undivided.  At the same time we believe, teach, and confess that the One True God has revealed Himself as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  The three persons of the Holy Trinity are coequal, coeternal, and consubstantial.  We worship one God in three persons and three persons in one God.  We neither divide the divine essence nor confuse the persons.  We hold to the Trinity in Unity and the Unity in Trinity.  The teaching of the Holy Trinity is rightly called a mystery. This mystery is revealed in the writings of both the Old and New Testaments.

Christ in the Old Testament- Exodus Chapter 3

Christ in the Old TestamentPastor Kachelmeier on Issues, Etc. talking about Christ in Exodus chapter 3. In this passage, The Messenger of Yahweh appears to Moses and from the midst of the bush He says, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” This is not a created angel; rather this is the Second Person of the Holy Trinity. In this passage we learn to make a distinction in the plurality of the persons of the Blessed Holy Trinity. We learn to make a distinction between the Person who sends and the Person who is sent. The Father sends the Son. The Son is Yahweh. (click here to listen to the interview on Issues, Etc.)
