John Whitcomb: August 14, 2017

This week on “Encounter God’s Truth,” we continue to consider how the prophet Zechariah chided a group of listeners who had attempted to substitute their own legalistic views of fasting for the true law and prophecies given by the Lord.

Dr. John Whitcomb helps us gain a Biblical perspective on God’s dealings with His people—and how that should impact our daily lives—by explaining more about this scene from post-captivity Judah.

He will echo Zechariah in giving us a clear reminder that the things we need to know to serve the Lord successfully are not hidden or secretive—but they are in harmony with God’s workings all throughout history, as revealed in Scripture.

Our message today is called, “Echoes of the Past.” You will benefit no matter where you are in your spiritual life—so we encourage you to listen carefully as Dr. Whitcomb and host Wayne Shepherd guide us in today’s broadcast.
