Father's Day

Ephesians 6:1-2a

"1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2 Honour thy father and mother;

Ephesians 6:1-4 KJV "1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. 4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."  Father's Day has been observed on to celebrate our earthly father who teaches us about our Heavenly Father.  The Headship of Christ is created in the family unit since the role of a father is the head of the family who answers to Christ.  It says In Epheisans 5:20-26 KJV "20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. 22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,"

The Basics

The lesson on June 20, 2021 was a message on Father's Day looking at "The Basics".  When you think of the basics that a Christian father has to pass on to his family, especially to his children.  The Doctrine of Christ, the Deity of Christ and Right Division.  These are the basics of your Christian walk.  When you become saved by grace, you have recognized that God became flesh and shed His blood when Jesus Christ died without sin for our sins.  God then raised Him to provide ua a way to have eternal life when we believe on Him.  In this message we looked at 2 John 1:9 KJV "9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son."  It is so important to follow the doctrine of Christ for life.  We also looked at Hebrews 6:1 KJV " Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,".  This tells the Christian to grow up after they became a baby in Christ.  We then looked at 1 Timothy 3:16 KJV  where it said, "16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."  Every Christian believes this without controversy!!  Now, how does one grow in Christ? We looked at 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV to answer this question.  "15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."  The scripture reading was from 2 Timothy 2:15-21 KJV

The Father's Will

The lesson on June 15, 2014 was a message on Father's Day teaching about the Father's Will.  This message is not part of a study but is one that celebrates Father's Day in America and looks at some passages that will teach us something about the Father's Will.  In Matthew 4, we learn of the Son's temptation in the wilderness being tempted by the devil for 40 days and nights and we see his response is always with the word of God in context and powerfully answers the devil.. "in scripture..." Jesus responds. The devil has his armor and well as Jesus.  We learn that the devil also uses the word of God but usually out of context, in an inappropriate way, from a wrong perspective.  That is another big lesson in that the enemy will weild the sword and do much damage to those who don't understand right division. We learned in Matthew 4:17 that Galilee was were Jesus began to preach the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.  We learn about the differences between the Kingdom of God and Kingdom of Heaven vs. Heavenly Places.  Further, this lesson teaches us about the calling Jesus gave to the 12 apostles regarding "fishers of men", particularly speaking to the net and provides insights around the Father's Will.  The scripture reading was in Ephesians 1:3-5 KJV

The Fathers Will
June 17th, 2012

This lesson was taught on June 17, 2012. Children need parents. Our culture today is against parents and the problems they face are enormous. Fathers have a lot of things on their minds that distract them from being Godly fathers. The world, the flesh and the devil are fighting fathers not to be godly but to be what they want them to be. Our scripture is found in Job 1:1-5 KJV: "1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. 2 And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.

June 19th, 2011

The lesson on June 19, 2011 was celebrating Father's Day and opened up with the scripture reading in Psalms 78:1-8 KJV "1 Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: 3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. 4 We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. 5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: 6 That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: 7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: 8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God."  This lesson also covered the parable in Luke 15 which is normally refered to as the parable of the prodigal son... but this message looks at it from the perspective of the loving father.

June 20th, 2010

The lesson on June 20, 2010 celebrated Father's Day and opened with the scripture reading from Prov 4:1-7 KJV "1 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding. 2 For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. 3 For I was my father's son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother. 4 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live. 5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

We moved our offices after the first of the year, which turned out to be a far greater chore than we had anticipated. It is amazing how much paper and things one can accumulate. When you start sorting through papers, pictures and memorabilia, you really get a chance to tread down memory lane.

We were reminded of those ex-inmates who have gone on to meet the Lord; Stanley Lee, Dr. Bob Earl, Jerry Sanders, Guy Tatum.

Those men who’s memory still encourage us to continue on: Dr. C.E. McLain, Charley Jones, Joe Russell, Chuck Palmer, Coach Jack Brewer…

Someone asked me if I could talk to one person from my past, who would it be. Without a doubt it would be my daddy. I ran many years behind in realizing how much he loved me, how brilliant he was, how he sacrificed for me and what good advice he gave me. Usually we do not think much of a father's love; we think more of his discipline or instruction, yet the first time "love" is mentioned in the Bible, it is a father's love.

This book is not about discipline, nor problem children. The emphasis is on the training of a child before the need to discipline arises. It is apparent that most parents never attempt to train a child to obey. They wait until the child becomes unbearable and then explode. With proper training, discipline can be reduced to 5% of what many now practice.
