This episode covers the last chapter of By Oath Consigned. It’s the one everyone’s been waiting for. Lee and Chris got off on a few rabbit trails, but I think you’ll agree that it was worth it. Enjoy the episode!

Lee and Chris have one more week off. But we are bringing you another lecture by Meredith Kline. This one is from March 25th 1999. It seemed appropriate for that time of the year that we especially tend to think about the future. Of course Meredith Kline is talking about that ultimate future in which we will dwell with God thanks to everything he accomplished for us in the person and work of his Son Jesus Christ.
Culture is subservient to cult
Image of God
Blessing sanction came to expression in the Sabbath
Tree of Life
Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil
Tree of Life reserved for beyond probation
Tree of Life is sacramental
Blessing sanctions symbolized (Tree of Life, Sabbath)
Curse sanctions verbalized (in the day you eat of it, you will surely die)
Only options are heaven and hell
Resurrection of the righteous and the wicked
The final state is an embodied experience
Physical death is a temporary experience
How blessing sanctions would have worked their way out
Probation phase and conferral phase
Conferral phase: confirmation stage and consummation stage
Probation phase has a cultic focus
After the probation would have been cultural fullness
Armageddon or Har-magedon
Judgment would have been the starting point of human history
“Slay the dragon” was the probation phase
City of God – Megapolis would have been man’s cultural endeavor
The Holy Spirit would have glorified man and the city to be Metapolis upon a successful probation. Only God can produce the beyond-city or Meta-city
Mountain of God – focus of Eden was a thrust outward to achieve the fullness of what the Lord had in mind.
Upper register has existed the entire time – heaven is God’s achievement – not the result of human achievement. Change of man’s perceptive capability.
Glorification takes us beyond our technology
Being like Christ will be the ultimate culture
Covenant of works
The knowledge of good and evil is a judicial function

1 Kings 3:9, 28
