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.

Duration: 1 hr 1 mins 45 secs

Angelic Conflict,
Interpretation

How well grounded are you in basic biblical truths? Listen to this lesson to continue to study these bedrock truths. Learn that one of the most intriguing of these is how the highest of all angels rebelled against God in eternity past and a third of the angels followed him. See how this has impacted the human race and what the final punishment for these creatures will be. In order to understand the Bible, learn why a historical, literal, grammatical, and contextual interpretation must be used to learn truth and why allegorical interpretation leads to false teaching.

At the beginning of this class Dr. Dean references the Creation Studies series that is now available on the website. You can view it here.

Bible interpretation is a subject that fills thousands of books and libraries around the world. One area is the subject of whether the writers of the New Testament shed clarification when they quoted Old Testament scriptures. Listen to this lesson to learn that there are four main schools of interpretation. Hear examples in the New Testament where two of these are illustrated. Learn about major scholars in this field and how you can delve into this subject more fully. Appreciate the many ways the scriptures teach patterns and types about the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
