Ern Baxter MP3 Teaching Series:
Where Are We Going? Part 1
How ought the Christian understand “where he is going” in terms of God’s purpose for history? Without a clear direction and destination it is very easy to wander and get lost. Ern explicates a rousing biblical vision of God’s purpose for his people corporately, exploring what God intends his people to be, to do, and to become.
This dynamic vision is essential to fortifying the people of God with a clear direction and purpose that will not only navigate them through, but also supply resoluteness in the midst of the current cultural confusion and the moral barrage of secular humanist ideology.
Ern’s teaching pivots on three fundamental prepositions in scripture: “out of”, “through”, and “into”. What has God called his people “out of” … ?
The Wilderness Part 2
In this teaching Ern addresses the significance and purpose of Israel’s Exodus and wilderness wanderings for the New Covenant people. He does this in view of its preparatory role for God’s people to go into the promised land. How does this relate to the contemporary church?
Where is the Land? Part 3
Moving from the significance of Israel’s wilderness experience as a process through which God’s corporate people must go in order to reach his ultimate intention for them in the land, Ern now turns to the location and significance of the Promised Land in scripture. Essentially asking, if there is a New Covenant equivalent for the Passover, Egypt, the Exodus, the Red Sea, the manna, and the water out of the flinty rock, how are we to interpret the New Covenant equivalent for the Promised Land? Apprehending this is key to understanding Gods ultimate intention for history and his mandate for his people in the world.
What is the Land? Part 4
In concluding this series, Ern outlines scripturally what the land of Canaan represented for the Old Covenant people and how it illustrates God’s intention for the New Covenant people; specifically, their victorious conquest of the entire earth.
This teaching carries a prophetic urgency for Christians as they face an increasingly hostile humanistic culture. It gives the biblical foundation for faith in the certainty of God’s unchanging nature and purpose, recovering the true dimension of the Church’s destiny in the earth. As such, it provides the basis for the re-education of our heart and mind in the revelation of Christ’s victory and Lordship in history over all nations and peoples. It carries the impetus for recovering the Christian mandate to press the crown rights of Christ in every sphere of life and culture.
