STUDYING THE WORD OF GOD (4)

Do you desire to be a “workman that needeth not to be ashamed” unto God? What child of God would not so desire? Of course, what faithful child of God would not desire to study the word of God? These thoughts come from 2 Timothy, chapter two, verse fifteen. Thais is where the apostle Paul …

STUDYING THE WORD OF GOD (2)

Study, a word that implies work and sometimes long-lasting and hard! Yet, this is the nature of the inspired word of God. For instance, in reading the first twelve chapters of Genesis, you can follow the years lived by the “patriarchal,” as Moses reveals how old they were when the first male child was born; …

STUDYING THE WORD OF GOD (1)

What could be simpler? Studying the word of God? Can you remember your first efforts at studying the Bible? Please note, the words are, “your first efforts at studying the Bible,” not just reading it. It is true, that reading is part of studying but just reading is not studying! I can remember my first …

WALKING BY FAITH? (3)

In this third and last article on the subject: “Walking by faith” we will continue our efforts at understanding the text: 2 Corinthians 5:7. Of course, these are the inspired words of the apostle Paul: “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:).” There are varying “views” on the meaning of the apostle’s words; thus, …

WALKING BY FAITH? (2)

The reason for the question mark in the title is because of the misuse of the words. In other words, just what do these words really mean and to what do they relate? Let us recall the number of ways the word “faith” is sometimes used. People use the word “faith” in the following ways: …

WALKING BY FAITH (1)

If you are “related” to “the teaching of Christ,” then, you have heard the words, “walking by faith!” Just what a person means when using the words, may differ from one to another, however. One of the reasons for this difference is the word “faith.” Here are a few questions that will help us understand …

IS IT CHURCH OR NOT?

Have you ever questioned where the English word “church” came from? Or, have you just accepted it, because it appears in our English New Testament and you have never thought anything else? Do you know what Greek word is translated into the English word “church?” It may be the case, you have no interest in …

WHERE DOES THE SOUL/SPIRIT GO AFTER DEATH? (3)

In article number three, we have reached the point, where it is now necessary to take a better, a fuller look at the “hadean” realm. This takes us to the story of “The rich man and Lazarus,” which is recorded in Luke 16:19 – 31. The text says that both, the rich man and Lazarus, …

WHERE DOES THE SOUL/SPIRIT GO AFTER DEATH? (2)

The question, as we concluded in the first article in this series, was the subject of “hades” and what it means. We learned from David’s prophesy that it was fulfilled in the resurrection of Jesus and this was Peter’s subject in much of the first sermon we have recorded. Of course, the text is Acts …
