Today with Real Israel Talk Radio – Episode 88 Program Part 24 – Defining Biblical Love from 1 Corinthians 13, we’ll address the statement that Paul makes saying that Biblical Love is all about “hope.”
I am going to talk about what biblical hope means. In our everyday world, we find ourselves often hoping for a better life, for a better job, for good weather, for a loved one’s well-being; for lots of things in our everyday material world. In the spiritual world that surrounds us, there too is the element of hope. To find out what this is all about, we must look into the biblical narratives and teachings. In doing so, we’ll find out that to have “hope,” it hinges on our entering into the biblical Door of Hope — in Hebrew: “Petach Tikvah.” And so, what is this exactly? It’s all about a promised Last Day Resurrection from the dead, which of course, was something very close to the heart of Yeshua in declarations such as Daniel 12:2, John 5:27-29, John 11:23-24, 1 Corinthians 15:50-55, and 1 Thessalonians 4:16, among many other places.
When Paul made his very brief statement that Yehovah’s Love is about “all hope,” he was clearly calling his readers to understand that Yehovah’s love is expressed through his promise that there will be for all of us believers in Yeshua, a Great Last Day resurrection that is going to come suddenly. Will we be looking for it? Awaiting it? Prepared for it?
In this episode of Defining Biblical Love, we’ll address the beautiful connection between Proverbs 13:12 and Romans 8:22-23. It really is a wonderful story and deserves to be told because without hope, the human heart will grow very sick. We’ll also learn about the Holy Spirit or the Spirit of THE WORD as a feminine attribute of Yehovah expressed through personifications of a Comforter and a Helper based on Genesis 2:20 – the Ezer K’negdo.
All of this gives us the packaging for Paul’s lesson on biblical love that Love is all about “hope” — the hope of the Great Resurrection that also brought up Yeshua from Sin and Death on the Third Day.
Join us for this episode of Defining Biblical Love PART 24 in 1 Corinthians 13 as we look into the biblical Door of Hope.
