George C. Lubbers is a minister emeritus in the Protestant Reformed Churches. The Hope of Heaven and Earth The Cherubim in the East Gate—Genesis 3:24 It is of the greatest importance carefully to notice the text here in Genesis 3:24b what the Holy Spirit tells us concerning God’s placing these Cherubim at the east gate with their flaming swords. The text reads as follows: “. . . . and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden the Cherubim, and the flame of a sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.” There...

“And thou shalt make two cherubims of gold; of beaten work shalt thou make them, at the ends of the mercy seat. . . and there I will meet with thee from above the mercy-seat, from between the cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel. Exodus 25:18, 22 We will now consider the place of the cherubim in the Old Testament tabernacle as they overshadow the mercy-seat of God’s ark. We find it to be an interesting and profitable study to consider the office...

“For every house is builded by some (man); but he that built all things is God.” Hebrews 3:4 It is important for the proper understanding of the presence of the cherubim in the most holy place, to notice carefully that there is a most intimate relationship between the progressive historical revelation of God’s covenant promise and the various stages through which the temple-building passed. The bottom line is that God himself will make a house for David in David’s royal Son (II Samuel 7:8-11). To facilitate a rather clear overview of this temple-building by the great temple-Builder, God in Christ, we...

From Paradise to Paradise (Gen. 3:16) If we believe all of the Scriptures we receive them as an organic unity, written by one Author, containing one central message concerning the Christ of God, and inspired by one Spirit. For all Scripture is given by inspiration; it is God-breathed (II Tim. 3:16). Besides, the Scriptures are often designated as being “the Scripture” (Mark 12:14; John 2:22; John 5:39; John 7:38, 42; John 10:35; John 13:18; John 17:12; John 19:24, 28, 36, 37; John 20:9; Acts 1:16;Acts 8:32; Rom. 4:3; Rom. 9:17; Rom. 10:11; Gal. 3:8, 22; Gal. 4:30; I Tim. 5:18; II Tim. 3:16; James 2:8, 23; James 4:5; I Pet. 2:6; II Peter 1:20). In perusing all these many, many...

George C. Lubbers is a minister emeritus in the Protestant Reformed Churches. The Christian Wife Predicted (Gen. 3:16) At first hearing of these words from the lips of Jehovah to the woman who has so deeply fallen, having so grievously disobeyed God and her husband, we might receive the impression that they are the announcement of the death-knell to this helpmeet of Adam. Listen to the text from the lips of Jehovah God. The text reads: “. . . thy desire shall be to they husband, and he shall rule over thee” (Gen. 3:16b). Surely we cannot interpret these words...

George C. Lubbers is a minister emeritus in the Protestant Reformed Churches. Chapter XXII The Mystery of the Seventy Weeks in Daniel 9 “IT IS FINISHED” TO THE UTTERMOST—con’t. It is really quite noteworthy that the Hebrew infinitivelecallee = to shut, restrain, finish is translated with the Aorist infinitive in the Septuagint. The Piel degree in the Hebrew suggests that this transgression was finished very, very much! The Aorist infinitive expresses completed action, pointedly completed action. The great transgression which was perpetrated by the one man in Adam, and as this passed on as sin and guilt and corruption to all men,...

George C. Lubbers is a minister emeritus in the Protestant Reformed Churches.   Chapter XXIV The Mystery of the Seventy Weeks in Daniel 9 THE HOLY OF HOLIES ANOINTED (Daniel 9:24b) The anointed Messiah came to anoint the “Most Holy”! There can be little doubt that the term for “Most Holy” in the Hebrew text should be better translated “holy of holies.” In Old Testament language this refers to the part of the tabernacle which was behind the second vail (Heb. 9:3). The writer to the Hebrews explains this as follows: “For there was a tabernacle prepared, the first, wherein...
