The message on December 9, 2018 was on regarding the thought of "I Shall Be Satisfied". Wayne going into the Christmas season will soon vacation to his homeland down South but has one more week of giving finals at his day job. In class, some students have approached him to consider changing careers because statistics is used in the profession of an Actuary, and they make so much more money. In response, Wayne expresses how much he loves his job and is satisfied teaching because of his love for it. In fact, many people are chasing wealth and happiness through things but we learn in scripture how vain that is. Ecclesiastes teaches us that all is vanity under the sun but we are satisfied because of what we believe in the resurrection when we will be changed. Wayne is quite satisfied knowing that upon death he will wait for the Lord Christ Jesus to call him forth and be changed to have his new body that will be fashioned to continue his calling. This message was one of celebrating how the Creator pierced the vanity and became flesh when the word dwealt among us and then died for our sins and was raised so that we might recieve the resurrection that the Apostle Paul was explaining in Philippians 3:1-12 KJV. The scripture reading was in Ecclesiates 1:1-11 KJV
This series studies the responsibilities of a Christian walk and ends with the rewards that are promised for the proper walk. The series started with five interrogatories of the Christian which asked these questions: What are you doing, How are you doing, Why you are doing what you are doing, Where do I go, and When should I do what I am doing? These questions led up the the last five lessons on your Walk in the Lord.
This series studies the Spiritual Warfare that we battle as Christians that is discussed in Ephesians 6:10:17. Paul was warning the church at Ephesus to be cognizant of the warfare that is taking place with the devil... as he said in Eph. 6:10-12 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
This is a new series that covers the book of Colossians. This is an important book because it is a prison epistle that is written to us. All scripture is for our learning but all scripture is not written to you. We don’t obey the scribes and Pharisees that sit in Moses’ seat… these instructions were to Jesus’ disciples at that time in scripture. Paul is an apostle to the Gentiles.
After the Timothy Study, it became apparent that some effort needed to be put forth to clarify for the Christian today would understand the hope we have in Christ Jesus. This hope is different than the hope that was promised to Abraham. Our calling is different than that of Abraham and Israel and the calling determines your hope. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Tim.
This audio series studies the letters the Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy in his final ministry to the gentiles. These lessons look at the proper doctrine that Christians should follow. We find that having the right doctrine makes our walk with the Lord more gratifying than being out of step with what He wants you to do. Clearly sound doctrine is very important to our proper Christian walk.
