The Threefold Work of Christ

The office work of Christ is threefold -Prophet, Priest and King

He does not hold these offices conjointly-at the same time; but successively-which denotes one after the other. His prophetic work extends from creation-of time to his Ascension back unto the heavens.

His Priestly work extends from the Ascension to the Rapture of the church.

His Kingly work extends from His revelation at the close of the tribulation period, until He surrenders the Kingdom to the Father- God. 1 Corinthians 15:28

The Second Advent (2) -a corporal bodily appearance of Christ.

It is very important in any saved person’s life that he/she  diligently reads and studies (strong emphasis on studying)  the word of the Lord. It is important that you rightly divide  the Word –II Timothy 2:15-studying the word is more than reading your bible every day. While that is a good practice -there is a difference between reading and studying.

Show thyself approved unto God; not unto men.- As a Shepard it is important that I mature you in the word so that you don’t make God, Pastor, or Your church ashamed.

Errors- misrepresenting, misquoting, or misinterpreting the word –like forcing something in one dispensation that it does not belong. 

You can have the Word of truth but you still must rightly divide the word of truth. 

These are a few areas that will aid in properly studying the Bible for beginners.

Studying of the Dispensations and Time-lines, Covenants (8), Advents (2) Class of People (3) -Jews, Gentile, and Church of God-This helps to break down the Bible into applicable periods of time. There are seven dispensations (listed below) which are periods in time in which man is tested in respect to obedience as to some specific revelation to the will of God.

Grace and Truth


The Bible is not an exposition on Theology or on any other topic. It is a revelation of god in the creation of earth, man, salvation, God’s plan and purpose in the ages- infallible 2 Timothy 3:16 -17. All scripture were given by the inspiration of God and it is profitable for doctrine, reproof, rebuking, correcting, instruction, and righteousness that the man of God may be perfect. That is a safeguard to keep a person from going off into a Spirit of Error.  

2 Peter 1:19-21- We have also a more sure word of prophecy where unto ye do well if ye take heed. No prophecy of the scripture is given by private interpretation.  

The New Testament is enfolded in the Old Testament- Ex: Isaiah 53; The Old Testament is Unfolded in the New Testament. You cannot understand Leviticus without understating Hebrews and Leviticus or Daniel without Revelation. 

The language of the Bible is of three kinds- Figurative, Symbolic and Literal.

Three things to avoid in the handling scripture

  1. Misinterpretation
  2. Misapplications
  3. Dislocation of Scripture

We must also not overlook the -“Parabolic Method” -of imparting the truth as  Jesus taught in parables.
