The Believer’s Guide To Spiritual Warfare
This series is based on the workbook by John Franklin and Chuck Lawless, “Spiritual Warfare: Biblical Truth for Victory”. But instead of just teaching it verbatim I am working through it from a fundamental standpoint. The actual workbook is a more interactive experience, as mine tends to be a deeper analysis on the topic of Spiritual Warfare. There is a lot of misinformation out there, along with grandiose fantasies of supernatural abilities that more parallel an occult loving entertainment industry than they do Bible. If you want an honest look into what Spiritual Warfare is really all about, then by all means join me in this study.
The Believerer's Guide To Hell
Man in all of his sophistication finds the idea that there is not only a place called Hell but that he fully deserves to go to such a place offensive. But it is we that have offended God. And it is only by His grace that we are ransomed. As "a sheep before her shearers is dumb", we too are dumb of a placed called Hell and what it is that awaits the dumb there. Hell is fundamental to the faith and when it gets ignored or taken out all together it ceases to be the faith. Instead it becomes philosophy; I'll never get why preachers and teachers build churches on only certain fundamental building blocks. We wouldn't drive cars that they intentionally left certain parts out of, we wouldn't live in houses that were only partially constructed either. So, why do we as believers embrace an incomplete faith so often?
The Believer's Guide To Heaven
There is a song that one of the music ministries that we have pass through our church sings, that I have loved ever since the first time I heard them sing it. The name of the song is “Thinking About Home”. In my adult Sunday School class we’ve just begun a series that deals with that very topic, our heavenly home. While there are more verses than you would think on the subject of Heaven, the average believer knows relatively little about where they are going to spend eternity. Heaven is a place none of us has ever seen but there isn’t a person that hasn’t felt, what can only be described as a, spiritual ache for it. If you’ve been looking for a way to draw closer to God, I can’t think of a better way than to acquaint yourself with the place the Lord himself went to “prepare… for you”, Heaven.
The Believer's Guide To The Book Of Jude
How do you stay true to God in times of apostasy? You do it with doctrine. We live in an age of open rebellion where the mere suggestion that God has standards, that there is a right way and a wrong way to interperate Scripture raises ire from even professed Christians these days. How is it that someone who is supposed to love God and His Word could get offended by someone contending for the very same faith that they claim to hold so dear? Jude exposes how. It happens when "the faith", a doctrine that was "once delivered", is not fundamentally understood.
The Believer's Guide To Jesus' 40 Day Walk To Ascension
This is a topic that there is surprisingly little out there on. The only solid resource that I found is the book, "40 Days: Encountering Jesus Between the Resurrection and Ascension" by Alton L. Gansky. From the jigsaw puzzle of events that transpired that first Easter morning to the clouds that "received" Him forty days later; this study is robust with biblical symbolism that the casual worship of today neglects or misses altogether. While the Lord has no doubt left some things to the license of imagination, others strike right to the heart of Fundamentalism.
The Great And The Terrible Day
This series is based on the book by Max Lucado, "When Christ Comes" It is a good read, especially for those who are curious or those who just have no concept of what God has in store for believers. It is a book of inspiration and hope and is well worth the time. However, this "day" gets referred to by many names in Scripture; to gloss over that is to tell only half of the story. It is through a fundamental analysis that I seek to make plain the importance of that.
The Believer's Guide To Some Unsung Heroes Of The Faith
This series is based on a series of messages originally brought by Pastor Daniel Dennis. After hearing them on the church website, I knew I had to share them with my own class. My lessons are a reinterpretation of those, which Bro. Dennis has graciously allowed me to put online. Please visit Thomas Road Baptist Church for access to this and so much more!
