Crossing, Conquering, and Claiming (44 min)

Egypt to Canaan (Part 6) – Eugene Higgins closes the series of messages on Egypt to Canaan with a look at crossing the Jordan (and what that event typifies); conquering the land (overcoming intimidation, temptation, deception ad amalgamation); and claiming the land (with examples from Caleb, Achsah, the daughters of Zelophehad and Levi).

Faithfulness and Failure in the Wilderness (46 min)

Egypt to Canaan (Part 5) – Eugene Higgins preaches on 4 stand-out instances of Israel’s failure in the wilderness, each of which sees some individuals marked by faithfulness instead. A failure in obedience (the spies), a failure in submission (Korah), a failure in separation (Baal-Peor), and a failure in wholeheartedness (the 2.5 tribes who stayed east of Jordan). Some challenging lessons lie in these things that were “written for our learning”. Readings: Num 13:33, 14:1-9, 16:1-7, 25:1-5, 26:9-11, 32:1-8 (Message…

How to Live Until He Returns (42 min)

Mr Higgins draws out powerful lessons from this part of Israel’s journey to the promised land. Readings: Exod 19:24-25, 25:1, 32:108, 17-19a, 30-35, 35:20-29, 39:42-43 (Message preached…

Provision for the Desert Pathway (42 min)

The manna is a “double type”: it typifies both the incarnate Word (the Lord Jesus) and the inspired Word (the Bible). Mr Higgins brings out many lessons about our daily need for the Word of God from the history of the manna. He closes by looking at Israel’s enemy Amalek, which is a picture of the flesh.…

Redemption from Egypt and Its Implications (41 min)

Egypt to Canaan (Part 2) – Eugene Higgins preaches on stage 1 of Israel’s journey, when they left Egypt, crossed the Red Sea, and started following the cloud. He emphasises separation from the world and draws lessons from Pharoah’s 4 attempts to persuade Israel not to leave. He distinguishes between crossing the Red Sea and crossing the Jordan. Finally he applies the spiritual lessons to be seen in the cloud that guided them through the wilderness. Readings: Exod 5:1-2, 13:1-3,…

Egypt to Canaan Introduction (39 min)

Egypt to Canaan (Part 1) – Introduction – Eugene Higgins introduces the subject of typology and how to approach it properly so as to avoid misinterpretation and misapplication, but while still benefitting from it. Mr Higgins explains the difference between a picture, a symbol and a type and then outlines 3 reasons why God uses these Old Testament features. Finally he lists numerous themes that will be encountered as this series of messages proceeds – themes full of practical import…
