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.

How does God protect us? By supernatural means or by using others around us? Listen to this lesson to learn that many times God uses others to carry out His protection of us. Hear a number of incidents when David was in need of protection and the means that God accomplished this. Find out some of David’s character virtues in the way he responded to these men. Just like David, today we need to learn that God is our defense and our deliverer and we can trust Him in every circumstance.

Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 11 mins 55 secs
That’s not fair! Everyone is outraged at times over the unfairness they see all around them. Listen to this lesson to learn that we live in a fallen world and that life is not fair. Find out that the Bible defines perfect justice and promises a time when there will be a ruler, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring justice to all. Until then, we need to accept that no group can bring justice by marching and demanding it. See that as believers we must be conformed in our thinking to God’s plan for our lives by studying the Word of God and walking by means of the Spirit.

Do you struggle with worry and anxiety when facing unexpected troubles? Listen to this lesson to learn the secret to peace, contentment, and joy in your life when everything seems against you.

Instead of slipping into self pity, he began to focus on how God had promised to be his shield and defender whatever happened.

Passage: 2 Peter 1:2-4
Series: 2 Peter (2019)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 14 secs
What lights your fires? Fame? Wealth? Fun? Listen to this lesson to hear biblical examples of people who allowed God’s mission for them to be their guiding light and trusted that He was sufficient to meet all their needs. See how Noah and Moses chose God’s approval of them as more important than all the world has to offer. Hear how others faced seemingly insurmountable obstacles and were jeered and harassed as they fulfilled God’s mandates. Today we have the same challenges. What will we choose?

Passage: 2 Samuel 11-12
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 7 mins 51 secs
What made David throw over all his beliefs and standards in order to commit adultery with Bathsheba? Listen to this lesson to hear the unflinching account of how our lust patterns entice us to sin. Find out how David intensifies his sin through a complex web of deceit that results in ordering the death of Uriah, Bathsheba’s husband. Hear Nathan the prophet’s story reveal God’s displeasure with what David has done and what the punishment will be. Realize that when David admits he has sinned against God, he is forgiven and cleansed just as we can be forgiven when we confess our sins.

Duration: 1 hr 6 mins 45 secs

What did David learn from his first attempt to bring the ark to Jerusalem? Listen to this lesson to understand that in order to please God things must be done God’s ways. Find out that after a man died after touching the ark, David took time to find out God’s precise directions which He had revealed. Hear the events surrounding the thrilling arrival of the ark in Jerusalem as it was honored as God’s dwelling place. This should make us ask ourselves whether we are submitting to the authority of God in our lives or whether we are trying to do things our way as we submit to our sin natures.

Dr. Dean mentioned a book entitled A Harmony of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles during this Bible study.

Passage: 1 Samuel
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 8 mins 13 secs
If you’ve always thought of the Bible as an obscure, pious book filled with stories of great Biblical heroes, think again. Listen to this lesson to learn about a country dominated by earthy, flawed, and sinful men, much as we have in our country today. Follow a dark period in Israel’s history and learn about three very different men, Samuel, Saul, and David. Learn about a murderous king influenced by demonism. See that as the book begins, God is working behind the scene, preparing to deliver Israel by bringing change. As you approach the study of this book, ask yourself if you’re like many in those days, trying to be a covert believer rather than living in open obedience to God’s Word.

Duration: 51 mins 43 secs
"Ta Da! The king has been born!" In the summer of 2013 the world waited breathlessly for the proclamation of the birth of the future king of England with his ironclad credentials. The Gospel of Matthew heralds the birth of the King of the Jews, Jesus Christ. Listen to this lesson to learn about the genealogies that validate His claims to the throne of David and why there are differences between Matthew and Luke. See how Matthew lists four sin-tainted women in the line of Christ and how they showcase God's grace which has brought salvation to all.
