This publication is the first book in the Back to Basics Series which focuses on the ‘Milk of the Word’ teachings of God’s Word and its purpose, to help Christian’s know who they are in Christ, who Christ is in them and provide a sure foundation for their Christian lives.

.

Like much of the scriptures, The First Principles of the Oracles of God is an extremely wide ranging teaching benefiting any Christian at any stage of their Christian walk.  Its very design is to give new believers a sure foundation in their understanding, to provide the experienced with refreshment and new perspective and most of all, to help confused, frustrated and shaken Christian’s find solid ground again.

.

The latter was the very reason the book of Hebrews was written and is the place where we find the First Principles Teachings.  At the time of writing, the Hebrew Christians were facing massive persecutions at the hands of the Romans and were considering turning back to Judaism. The writer, at the bidding of God, quite expertly set out to convince them to stay the course, proving the superiority of the New Covenant in Christ to the Old Covenant.  In addition, the writer went on to encourage them by revealing their issues and giving them the answers they so desperately needed.

.

The writer said that as a result of their circumstances they’d become ‘dull of hearing’ (Heb 5:11) and what they needed to do was return for a time to the First Principles of God’s spoken Word (Heb 5:12).  He detailed six foundational teachings, Repentance from Dead Works, Faith Toward God, Doctrine of Baptisms, Laying on of Hands, Resurrection of the Dead and Eternal Judgement (Heb 6:1-2) which if taught again, would set their feet back upon the rock and rekindle again their once fervent faith.  The advice here, was quite simply, to come back to the basics.

.

The First Principles of the Oracles of God serves us as a powerful teaching today and details the true ‘Milk of the Word’ teachings to lay a solid foundation in our Christian lives.  This simply written EBook and Audio Sermon Accompaniment open up the teachings in full, taking us to many places in scripture in a clear and uncomplicated way.  If you’re a new, experienced or a confused Christian then I encourage you, take a short season out in your life and come back to the basics of your faith.   

.

In addition to this teaching, this EBook and Sermons go on to lay the next portion of understanding, Growing in the Grace of God.  We examine Peter’s call for Christians not just to be satisfied with salvation alone but to go on and grow in our relationships with Jesus Christ. He identified seven Grace Virtues, Virtue, Knowledge, Temperance, Patience, Godliness, Brotherly Kindness and Charity (Love).  Peter said, “…for if these things be in you and abound, they make you that you shall neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, but he that lacks these things is blind and can’t see afar off…”  This teaching not only opens up the doctrines but explains how to apply them to our lives, we examine Salvation and Salvation Benefits, the work and purpose of the Holy Spirit, Grace and Law, Growing in Grace and peaks, at the teaching of Knowing Christ.

.

The live recordings of the original twelve week public teaching season have been presented unrehearsed and unedited to accompany the note chapters of this book. Because Christian meetings are very different to others, we’ve chosen to present these sermons unedited in the hope that the Christian hearer might be impressed upon by the spirit and atmosphere of those evenings, to make this teaching a full and enjoyable experience.
