The Rapture of Believers – Part 2

September 8, 2015

: In this lesson we are going to take a look at the subject of the rapture and when this event will actually occur. While the most common belief among Evangelical Christians is that the rapture will occur prior to the great tribulation, I believe that this event will not occur until the second coming of Christ, when He returns to establish his millennial kingdom.

Taking Discipleship Seriously

September 2, 2015

Following Christ exacts a price that for the most part the church in the United States has refused to fully embrace. Throughout the ministry of Jesus, He clearly declared that those who would be His disciples must be willing to surrender all. With Jesus it is all or nothing at all. This illustration is a vivid reminder of many people who begin to walk with Christ, but when the price began to be exacted fall away.

Obedience, the Evidence of Salvation

September 2, 2015

Bill Hull, in his book ‘The Complete Book of Discipleship,’ states, “The American gospel teaches that faith equals agreement with a set of religious facts. Believing in Jesus has no meaning if we don’t follow him in discipleship. Believing without discipleship isn’t believing, it’s agreeing to a set of facts about a religious figure. The problem we face is that we have taught a faith that doesn’t transform people….We’ve made the test for salvation doctrinal rather than behavioral, ritualizing it with walking the aisle, praying to receive Christ, or signing a doctrinal statement.Perhaps we’ve made it so easy to get into “the life” that we’ve made it nearly impossible to live the life.”

The Fruit of the Spirit is Love – Part 2

September 2, 2015

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (The Voice) Love is patient; love is kind. Love isn’t envious, doesn’t boast, brag, or strut about. There’s no arrogance in love; 5 it’s never rude, crude, or indecent—it’s not self-absorbed. Love isn’t easily upset. Love doesn’t tally wrongs 6 or celebrate injustice; but truth—yes, truth—is love’s delight! 7 Love puts up with anything and everything that comes along; it trusts, hopes, and endures no matter what.
