The lesson on February 23, 2014 continued the "Ephesians" study with part 17. As usual, a review of previous truths taught from the previous lessons but the focus with this lesson was on Ephesians 4.  Chapter 4 starts with PAul sayiing that we should be worthy of the calling by which we have been called.  The Greek word for calling is used to describe adoption and learn that there are three separate adoptions with three separate callings.  The first was the calling is associated the land grant promised to Abraham and his seed.  This adoption is for Israel.  The second calling was for New...

The lesson on December 1, 2013 was part 8 of the "Ephesians" study.  A review of chapter one was given where we learned about looking for pentecostal gifts is wrong because of the change in God's revealed plan due to the revelation of his hidden purpose.  In this age, PAul talks about the one gift of the spirit of wisdom and revelation that may be given (verse 1:17). We learn how the King James uses italicized font to correctly reflect the case being communicated.  When we get to the main lesson we learn of the amazing position God has placed us in Him and how the prince of the power of...

The lesson on June 2, 2013 was part 7 of the "Galatians" study. This lesson provides a review of the two issues discussed in Part 6, which are 1) The Faith of Christ, and 2) the Transgression (which Paul was discussing becoming a transgressor in Galatians 2:8 if he taught the things which he previously destroyed).  The Jews were not to build the thing which Paul destroyed.  The Jews were replacing the grace of God with something that came from the law and this was the transgression.  The lesson continued with the scripture reading which was from Galatians 2:21-3:7 KJV "21 I do not...

The lesson on April 3, 2011 was continuing the study "From the Beginning" with part 30.  The scripture reading for this lesson was in John 7:28-36 KJV "28 Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not. 29 But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me. 30 Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.

John 3:1-16

1There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except...

Repentance - Godly versus Worldly. The lesson on April 15, 2007 was provided by Leland Maples of the LOOPS Ministry who gave an update on LOOPS as well as a study on 2 Corinthians 7:9-11. In this passage, Paul was dealing with two different types of sorrows and two different types of repentance which lead to two different results. We see a very personal example of these when comparing Peter and Judas. Mark 14:27-31 tells of the time where Jesus was telling the apostles that they will all deny him this very night.

Approaching The Bible - Part 3. “Example: Miracles” -The third lesson in this series looks at a more controversial topic of Miracles and healing. There are may denominations that have adopted the miracles movement and utilize healing, tongues, and miracles. Unfortunately, they do so in ignorance not knowing where or why these were applicable for Israel. This lesson looks at the miracles in its proper context and shows how we have moved into an age of grace where these no longer have any endorsement by God. God can heal but He has not given that power to any one here on earth.

The Pleroma - Part 14. The lesson on October 12, 2003 continues the lesson on the Pleroma. This lesson deals with the Headship of Christ which is located in the middle of the Pleroma chart. The head of the woman is the man, and the head of the man is Christ as stated in 1 Corinthians 11:3 (KJV) “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” Even Christ as the head of the body, will turn over all things back unto God the Father.
