The lesson on February 23, 2014 continued the "Ephesians" study with part 17. As usual, a review of previous truths taught from the previous lessons but the focus with this lesson was on Ephesians 4.  Chapter 4 starts with PAul sayiing that we should be worthy of the calling by which we have been called.  The Greek word for calling is used to describe adoption and learn that there are three separate adoptions with three separate callings.  The first was the calling is associated the land grant promised to Abraham and his seed.  This adoption is for Israel.  The second calling was for New...

The lesson on February 9, 2014 was part 16 of the "Ephesians" study.  The lesson started with a review of previous material and looked at chapter 3, verse 9 in the context of fellowship.  The best way to look at fellowship is to look at all the words which comes from the translation of Greek word "κοινωνία".  Communion, contribution, distribution, communication and fellowship are come from this Greek word.  If you are not in fellowship with common causes, you will not be able to contribute in building something together.  PAul is the one that is teaching the unsearchable riches of Christ...

The lesson on January 26, 2014 was part 15 of the "Ephesians" study.  This lesson started looking directly at verses 7 thru 10 in chapter three and really focused on the fact that PAul is providing us an amazing gospel of the unsearchable riches of Christ.  This is different from the gospel of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ.  This gospel was given to PAul by the effectual working of His power (the same power of the out-resurrection).  In verse 8 it shows a beautiful demonstration of grace... and moves to verse 9 where PAul is commissioned to make a men see what is the...

January 19th, 2014

The lesson on January 19, 2014 was part 14 of the "Ephesians" study. The series continues on in chapter four looking specifically at the "Grace" that PAul is proclaiming to the Gentiles.  Specifically the joint-heir ship, the same body and the joint partakers by the gospel.  The gospel of the unsearchable riches of Christ is a gospel that is not preached today.  It should be!  The ministry that goes on with this body is a testimony to principalities and powers in heavenly places expressing the manifold wisdom of God. The scripture reading was in Ephesians 4: 11-16 KJV "11 And he gave some...

January 12th, 2014

The lesson on January 12, 2014 was part 13 of the "Ephesians" study and continued in chapter three.  The lesson started with a review of the Mystery of Christ being different from The Mystery being revealed in chapter 3 for the first time.  The mystery of Christ is something that was traceable in the Old Testament with prophecies all the way up to the New Testament scriptures.  The Mystery revealed in Ephesians 3:9 was not searchable in the scriptures but hidden in God before the foundation of the world.  This lesson went into detail studying the word "gospel" in Ephesians so we may...

January 5th, 2014

The lesson on January 5, 2014 was part 12 of the "Ephesians" study.  The lesson covered chapter 3 through verse 9.  The lesson started with a review of previous truths learned from previous lessons.  Topic like "time" was discussed in that there is prophetic time in the bible associated with Israel.  When they are disobedient and were in servitude, the prophetic clock would stop while regular time was still running.  The prophetic clock has stopped now because at Acts 28:28, Israel was divorced.  There will be a time when God deals with Israel again and the prophetic clock with start again...

The lesson on December 29, 2013 was part 11 of the "Ephesians" study.  As usual, a review of previous lessons started this lesson reviewing the great truths discovered in chapter two.  One of those themes was the distance the Gentiles had from God which is now abolished.  Israel had the preferred status.  In Ephesians, that now is gone because the middle wall of partition was abolished in Christ.  This lesson starts chapter three and teaches the revelation that PAul the prisoner is revealing the mystery which is different from the mystery of Christ.  This doctrine is sent specifically to...

X-mas

The message on December 22, 2013 was a break from the Ephesians study and celebrated Christmas time. We learned the correct interpretation of the phrase "Xmas" which turns out that it isn't a modern convention at all. It was used commonly in 16th-century Europe, when many people began using the term "Christos," the Greek translation for Christ, to refer to Jesus. The letter chi in the Greek alphabet is symbolized by an X and translates to "ch." So along with the Greek letter rho for "r", the term Xmas was used to refer to the birth of Jesus as an informed abbreviation, not an offensive one...

December 15th, 2013

The lesson on December 15, 2013 was part 10 of the "Ephesians" study and continued almost to the end of chapter two. As is usual, we reviewed the previous lesson where we learned the proper interpretation of verse 8 where we learn that "for by grace are you saved through faith" not of yourselves.  The "not of yourselves" applies to the entire idea together.  We learned that we have been created in Christ as a new man who has been prepared for good works.  This is the proper order because your works have nothing to do with your salvation. The remaining part of chapter two involves the theme...

December 8th, 2013

This lesson was given on December 8, 2013 and is part 9 of the "Ephesians" study.  We reviewed verses 1-7 which was taught in the previous lesson and moved on to versus 8-10.  In learning how the KJV uses italics, we reviewed a powerful verse in Hebrews 1:8 where God calls His son God! We learned of three time perspectives: Times Past, But Now, and Ages to Come where we are in the "But Now" and to really understand this position, you have to understand the message that PAul the prisoner is teaching. This is not Paul's pre-Acts 28 ministry. In this lesson we learned how to read verse 8 of...
