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.

Passage: Judges 10:7-11:28
Series: Judges (2021)
Duration: 1 hr 1 mins 44 secs
The Israelites are in trouble again in this passage. They have rejected God and worshiped idols so God judges them by sending an enemy to invade their land. They call out for help and once again, God, in His grace, helps them. See what Jephthah does when he encounters the enemies and their leader. Study the geography of the area from the slides to understand where this is taking place. Be challenged to accept that God uses all types of people to carry out His plans, which should give us great confidence that we, too, can be used.

Passage: Ephesians 4:25
Series: Ephesians (2018)
Duration: 53 mins 52 secs

Are you aware you’re living in a war zone? A war zone of competing worldviews? Listen to this message to learn about two prominent worldviews that may be influencing you more than you know. The first of these is called Modernism, which stresses that reason and logic are all that were necessary to live a good life. This view was discredited by the devastation of the first World War. The worldview that followed it and is current today is called Postmodernism. Learn how its goal is to bring utopia to this world through social change. In contrast to these false worldviews is the biblical view that man is helpless to save himself, but God’s plan for mankind is to redeem him through Christ’s death on the Cross when we trust in Him. Finish this lesson with a study of who the “one another” in Ephesians refers to and the importance of the body of Christ called the Church.

During this message Dr. Dean referenced the book The Death of Truth by David McCallum.
