John (Program #19) – The Need of the Dying – Life’s Healing

The Spirit of Life imparts the divine life into our whole being to defeat death, to heal us from our dying condition, and to make us a being full of the life of God.

We’ve been examining the marvelous and well-known cases in John 3 and 4 of the moral and righteous teacher Nicodemus, then the thirsty sinful woman that the Lord encountered in Samaria. Today we’re dealing with the royal official’s dying son at the end of chapter 4.

Luke (Program #22) – The Ministry of the Man-Savior in His Human Virtues with His Divine Attributes from Galilee to Jerusalem (1)

As the Lord Jesus and His disciples were journeying from Galilee through Samaria to Jerusalem three cases are chronicled in Luke chapter 9 regarding different ones who desire to follow Him.  Verse 57 says “And as they went along the road, someone said to Him, I will follow You wherever You go. And Jesus said to him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of heaven have roosts, but the Son of Man does not have a place where He may lay His head. And He said to another, Follow Me. But he said, Lord, permit me to go first and bury my father. But He said to him, Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and announce the kingdom of God everywhere. And another also said, I will follow You, Lord; but first permit me to say farewell to those in my house. But Jesus said to him, No one who puts his hand on the plow and looks behind is fit for the kingdom of God.”

Mark (Program #56) – A Life Fully According To and For God’s New Testament Economy (16)

The gospel of Mark ends with the Lord’s ascension. So what is the Lord Jesus doing now that He has resurrected and ascended?

In order to find out what the Lord is doing after His ascension, we need the book of Acts. Acts 1:5 says, “For John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized in the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”   And Act 1: 8 says, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Acts (Program #34) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (26)

One of the most prominent figures in the New Testament, of course, is the Apostle Peter. Called by the Lord at the beginning of His earthly ministry, Peter, despite failures and setbacks, became the one to whom the Lord gave the two great keys to the Kingdom of the Heavens. In the waning days of his preeminent position in the ministry, he is honored by the divine record with a marvelous and inspiring account in Acts 12.

Acts (Program #33) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (25)

After a glorious beginning, the church in Jerusalem underwent a sudden turn and persecution fell heavily upon the church. The trouble and persecution became so heavy in fact that nearly all the believers except the apostles were forced to leave and were scattered, to use the Bible’s own phrase. Was this just God’s enemy reacting to the early success of the gospel or was this a genuine move of God under His sovereign hand?  Stay with us for an enlightening and compelling look at the gospel as it was spread in the first-century church on today’s life study of the Bible.

Acts (Program #32) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (24)

As Christians today, we likely take it for granted that anyone, despite their background or race, can freely take the salvation afforded by the grace of God through Jesus Christ. But, it wasn’t always that way. The opening of the door of the gospel to the Gentiles or non-Jewish world was a significant and difficult transition in God’s move on the earth. We will consider this key turning point in God’s move on today’s life study of the Bible.

Acts (Program #31) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (23)

When was Christ crucified for us? Of course we know that He died on the cross about 2000 years ago. But, how then do we understand Revelation 13:8 that says, the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Within this apparent paradox lies a marvelous realization that will greatly benefit how we approach many aspects of our Christian life.

Acts (Program #30) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (22)

In Acts 1:5, the Lord told the disciples that they would experience a baptism of the Holy Spirit. This event, occurring exactly 2 times in the New Testament, has been debated, analyzed, promoted, and profoundly misunderstood.  Was it intended only for the ancient disciples? Is it a special experience supplemental to our initial salvation intended for us? Or is it a matter of importance on a scale much larger than just our own personal experience? We will get a very penetrating look today on the life study of the Bible.

Acts (Program #29) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (21)

The Apostle Peter was entrusted with the responsibility of ushering both the Jewish and later the Gentile believers of Christ into the Kingdom of God. As a result of these two distinct events, the door into the Kingdom and eternal life is fully open for all who would believe and enter in. We will look at the second of these doors being open on today’s life study of the Bible.

Acts (Program #28) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (20)

Many times, Christians tend to view the outward circumstances in their life as an indication of how pleased or how displeased God is with them spiritually. But this line of thinking may lead us to the conclusion that when our outward environment is the most difficult, then we are missing God’s blessing. But the book of Acts shows us that possibly just the opposite is true. Stay with us today for an enlightening life study of the Bible.
