Attitude Check

Authored by justforgiven on Sun, Feb 17 2013 - 07:26 PM

Wow!! What a great message God gave our pastor to teach us today.  Such an annointing messsage. John 4 is full of nuggets of truth.  Today it was a bout attitude.  What does it take to get a bad attitude? This is how the sermon was introduced.  Jesus was teaching His disciples the truths about serving.  We are saved to ...

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.  Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.  For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.  When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory& ...

“Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.  Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ...

Bale Out the Balaams

Authored by justforgiven on Wed, Jan 30 2013 - 05:41 PM

There are always many interpretations of this story...about Balaam and the "speaking donkey". My reading of this story took me to the character of Balaam and the consequences of his character. Balaam is noted as a 'prophet' who dealt as a soothsayer. He expected fees and therefore this became his downfall. He had knowledge about God..perhaps he ...

Colossians Chapter 1 Part 2

Authored by revsuz on Thu, Jan 24 2013 - 08:50 AM

I recently read a fine article on pluralism and syncretism in the church at ApologeticsPress.org titled Pluralism, Multiculturalism, Syncretism, and America by Dave Miller, Ph.D. Before you go further with these Colossians studies, I would strongly suggest you read it.  It explains much of what Epaphras was dealing with in the church at ...

Introduction to Colossians

Authored by revsuz on Fri, Jan 18 2013 - 08:04 AM

These studies in Colossians are being placed after Ephesians because the two Books complete each other.  Ephesians is about the body of Christ, and Colossians is about the Head of the church - which is Christ. Studying them in sequence will give you new understanding into the Word of God for our day. Colossians was written by Paul during his ...

Ephesians Chapter 6 Part 37

V.5 - What is a bondservant?  It’s someone who works for no pay check. He is bonded to his master, often for life.  When Paul wrote this Scripture, bondservants still existed. Now it’s not a problem. So, knowing this was written for a culture that no longer exists, and knowing the entire Bible is for our benefit, how do we ...

V26 - Why did Jesus die for the church? So that He could sanctify her, or set her apart from the other religious sects of the time. (Christianity is not a religion: It is a faith-based belief system that we live.) To be sanctified, hagiadzo, Strong’s #37, means to be set apart, to dedicate, separate, and consecrate. It is to be made holy. We ...
