Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

1 Peter 5:1-4 by Robert Dean

After Christ’s ascension to Heaven, many believed in Him and on the day of Pentecost received the Holy Spirit and became the body of Christ. Now what? How would this new entity called the Church be administered? Listen to this lesson to hear a lucid and compelling overview of how the Apostles began to organize these believers. Learn that the term elder is the most-used term in the New Testament for the leader of a local church and why pastor is now conventionally used instead. Find out the difference between a descriptive and a prescriptive view of the Book of Acts.

During this class Dr. Dean referenced the Textual Criticism course (taught by Ron Minton) available on the Dean Bible Ministries website.
