Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

Genesis (2003)

Genesis (2003)

February 2003 - September 2007

Genesis is the book of beginnings: the beginning of creation, man, sin, redemption, the divine institutions, covenants and much more. Almost every doctrine in the Scripture has its foundation in Genesis, which makes it crucial for every believer to understand this book. The first 11 chapters are the most attacked portion of all the Bible. This is because they form the foundation for Christian thinking - divine viewpoint thinking. If you want to properly orient to God's essence, His grace and think as Christ thinks, then Genesis is indispensable.

Note that further development of the early Genesis material (i.e., Genesis 1–4) was taught in the 1st and 2nd Samuel series (lessons #136–145).

Starting with lesson number 76, video DVDs of these lessons can be ordered from Dean Bible Ministries here or here.
