Proverbs (2013)
Sun, Feb 03, 2013
by Robert Dean
Passage: Proverbs 3:1-6
Series: Proverbs (2013)
Duration: 55 mins 20 secs
The only knowledge that translates into wisdom is knowledge of the Truth. Enmeshment with Truth is an inseparable relationship. Enmeshment in today’s language implies a dysfunctional relationship where one allows another to define him. In the spiritual realm it is a positive term where we aspire to be defined by, and inseparable from, the Truth of God. Truth acts as our protection from absorbing cosmic thinking. Understand the expanded meanings of mercy and Truth and the imagery behind writing them and binding them. Know that trust is based on specific principles of scripture. Applied trust is certainty that fear has lost its power to intimidate and motivate in light of the Truth that is written on our hearts.

Me! Me! Gimme a gift! Who doesn't love to get a gift? Listen to this lesson to learn about an extraordinary gift, a spiritual gift, graciously bestowed on each of us by God when we trust in Christ as our Savior. See that the purpose of this gift is not for bragging rights or to make us look good in the eyes of others but to be used to benefit other believers in our local church. Learn the different words used to describe these gifts and how these gifts are for Church Age believers only. Understand that through spiritual growth and the transformation of our thinking we come to exercise our spiritual gift fully in service to God.

Does it almost break your heart to see TV ads about abused and suffering pets? Listen to this lesson to learn the difference between true compassion and the false variety. Find out whose responsibility it is to help those suffering. Discover that when government promises to limit the consequences of people's bad decisions it also limits the outcomes of people making good decisions. Find out what first century Pharisees thought about tax collectors and how Jesus pointed out that a mental attitude of compassion was superior to the performance of religious rituals with no internal reality.

"I love you." Who doesn't enjoy hearing that but what does it really mean? Listen to this lesson to learn that the Biblical meaning of love is not just a tingly, electrifying feeling but a desire to do what is best for the one you love. Discover absolute standards for the functioning of your spiritual gifts, including teaching, mercy, encouragement, and giving. Examine the many examples of evil in the Bible and see how we should detest evil in ourselves and others and seek that which is good.

Who do you go to when you have a problem? Listen to this lesson to see that God wants us to cry out to Him in times of trouble. See how David called to God for mercy when he was being pursued by his enemies. See that we need to know God’s promises so we can claim them and can present our cases before God. Hear ways that we can learn to be like David and pray about all our needs. In times of trouble relax in God as baby birds rest in the care of their mother's wings.

How many supernatural events can you name that occurred the day of Christ’s crucifixion? Listen to this message to learn about these events, including complete darkness in the area and dead people leaving tombs and walking in the streets. Learn the meaning of Christ’s propitiation on the Cross and how it satisfied God’s Righteousness and Justice. See how the Mercy Seat on the Ark of the Covenant spoke of this and of unlimited atonement for all mankind. Learn that the issue at salvation is now belief in Christ’s work alone.

Ephesians (2018)
Sun, Oct 27, 2019
by Robert Dean
Passage: Ephesians 2:4-5
Series: Ephesians (2018)
Duration: 51 mins 49 secs
“The love of God is greater far, than tongue or pen can ever say.” As the songwriter expresses, the love of God is so magnificent and rich it’s hard to express. Listen to this lesson to hear how the Apostle Paul describes three facets of God’s character that involve His loving kindness, mercy, and grace to us even when we were in rebellion against Him. See that nothing depends on us because God has provided a solution and all we have to do is trust Christ to be “made alive in Him”.
