Passage: 1 Peter 2:11-12
Series: 2008 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 12 mins 54 secs

Dr. Meisinger's infamous "Stop it!" message.

The subject developed in 1 Peter 2:11-3:12 is that believers should submit to various God-appointed authorities in their lives to witness effectively to unbelievers.

Why does Peter make an issue out of submission? Don’t we have liberty in Christ? Has not the Lord freed us from the Law? Yes, He has. Nevertheless, our exercise of liberty is neither an absolute nor our highest calling. The world needs to see us reflect God’s grace and that high calling sometimes requires the suspension of our liberty for their sakes. The only place unbelievers will see “grace in action” and thus be drawn to the Lord is in our appropriate submissive conduct. God uses His people as reflectors of His grace, but we have to prepare ourselves to live accordingly. ...

This paper presents the position that 1 Corinthians 15 contains an adequate gospel message enabling one to be born again.

From biblical theology, we learn that the saving gospel message is a unit, a single whole. Like a cut-diamond, it is an entity possessing multiple facets. One apostle presents one facet, while another presents a different facet. Of course, the divine Author superintended every word that flowed from their quills. ...

Passage: Romans 6:1-23
Series: 2011 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 17 mins 14 secs

Words such as “sanctification” and “holy” translate the Greek word group (see below) that means “to set apart,” with different nuances depending on context. To be sanctified or holy is to be set apart either from evil, or set apart to do good works.1 Speaking of believers in the Church dispensation, the New Testament uses sanctification three ways:

1) Positional, which speaks of how God, by the baptism of the Spirit, sets apart each born again person into Union with Christ (1 Corinthians 1:2, 30; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Peter 1:2; Hebrews 10:10).

2) Experiential sanctification [aka progressive], which addresses how a believer becomes more-and-more set apart to doing God’s will (1 Thessalonians 4:3-4; Hebrews 12:14; 2 Corinthians 7:1).

3) Ultimate or final sanctification that speaks of when a believer is set-apart from mortality to immortality, which is to resurrected life in heaven (Ephesians 1:4; 5:27; Jude 24; cf., Romans 8:29; 1 John 3:1-3; Revelation 22:11). ...

The idea of treason appears several times in the Bible, denoting an attempt to overthrow the ruling authority to whom one owes allegiance.

1. In 1 Samuel 24:11, David assures King Saul that he has not plotted “treason” against the king.

2. In 2 Kings 11:14 (|| 2 Ch. 23:13) Queen Athaliah cries out “Treason! Treason!” when she discovers that the priests had crowned a new king, her grandson, Joash.

3. In Ezekiel 17:20, God warns the Israelites that He will severely punish them for “treason … committed against [Him].” ...

Passage: Ezekiel
Series: 2013 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 16 mins 39 secs

The question to address is, “Should we examine the Old Testament for guidance regarding pastors/shepherds in the Church Dispensation?” We need not conjecture for the New Testament unequivocally answers the question.

Where does this lead us? The Old Testament is “for our learning,” delivers “examples” and “admonition,” as well as “doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness.” In addition, it is “reliable” not causing disappointment, thus we should “pay attention.” And all this to what end?—that teaching pastors may become fully equipped for every good work, such as shepherding a flock with patience and hope.
